Before you, I Walked Around Like Frankenstein's
the hospital, Daniel walks in on Kayla to tell her how "awesome" everything
in the universe "grooves". This segues into a talk on surfing in California.
She seems annoyed that he's been digging around in her past. He checked her
out, he admits, adding that he would have kicked her off his team if he
didn't like what he saw. He's perplexed about why she never learned to surf
though. She convinces him to let her get her out today. "I'm a sucker for
beautiful women," he flirts.
the hall, Lexi checks in on Bo. He urges her to sign his release papers so
he can get out. She warns him not to get too excited or she'll make sure
he stays in bed. He shrugs uncomfortably. She tells him again to stop
worrying and overreacting before asking him why he won't let the police look
after Hope. "Trust me to know what I'm doing?" he asks. She's skeptical. He
threatens to sign himself out and she warns that could only make things
worse for him. Dr. Jonas abruptly walks in to give a second opinion. He
reminds Bo of how fortunate he is to be alive. Bo knows, but he still wants
out and suggests that he would recover better under his wife's care. Daniel
asks him if he would be willing to follow a strict regimen of instructions
for recovery. Bo will. Daniel okays it and Lexi makes Bo promise not to make
her sorry that she agreed to go along with this. Daniel gives Bo the
schedule for his medications and tells him that he can't drive for six
weeks. Bo thanks him again and hurries the doctors along. As soon as Daniel
is out of the room, he calls his mother for a favor.
Meanwhile, Lexi arrives at Kayla's bedside. She's still anxious to get out
and Lexi agrees to release her as long as she goes home and straight to bed.
She still worries that Kayla and her brother will hook up and get themselves
into trouble, as they've been known to do. Kayla promises that they will
stay out of trouble. As soon as Lexi leaves to get the release papers, Kayla
calls her mother for a favor. Later, Caroline picks up the kids. "I
like I'm driving a getaway car," she comments before warning them not to try
and pull a fast one on her. They won't tell her anything. That only makes
her worry more. "Family keeping secrets from family spells trouble," she
says, shaking her head. Kayla insists that they know what they're doing.
Caroline drives them back to the pub and tries to send her belligerent
children up to bed, reminding Bo that his father died to keep him alive.
They won't do as she demands and insist that they will be fine. She knows
that she can't force them to do anything and throws up her hands in
frustration before going upstairs. "Now we have to find our partners," Bo
says, turning to his sister. He takes out a DVD a friend of his in hospital
security gave him, explaining that this could contain clues about what's
hideaway, Ava takes Steve in her arms. "Do you remember the first thing that
made me hot for you?" she starts as they walk down memory lane, recalling
their meeting in a cab. He tells her that what they had was great...but it
couldn't last. It was intense, "but sometimes the hottest fire burns out the
fastest," he says. She tries to relight the fire by pulling him into a kiss.
She doesn't get the reaction she wanted. Things have dimmed for Steve. "It
was what it was," he says. "It is what it is," she insists. Things are
different now, he reminds her: Now she's sick. That's his fault, she claims,
so now he needs to make it up for her. They were amazing together and they
can have that again. She even promises that "daddy can be taken care of." As
she starts to kiss him, he has pains in his ribs and has to sit down. She
offers to help him but he pulls away. "When I make love to you, I want it to
be right," he explains. She almost cries, remembering that she could have
killed him in the pane crash. She quickly regains composure and tells him
that he is going to have to decide who he loves. The Patch she used to know
would have her naked by now, she reminds him. "Tonight's just not going to
happen for us," he says. "I've waited this long for my one true love, but
I'm not going to wait forever," she warns, slapping him before she walks
Hope paces around her room, reminding herself that she's been in worse
situations before and always found a way out. Suddenly, Steve walks through
the door and she almost smashes him with a vase before noticing it's him. He
explains how he got away from Ava and Hope admits that she had no idea he
and Ava were so close until she saw the slideshow...but they still need to
escape. Angelo soon pops in with his gun out. He asks how Patch got out and
threatens to strip search them. Dragging Patch out, he locks Hope inside
and Marlena dance at Chez Rouge. He asks her what their song is. She offers
to have the band play it. "I prefer to let us just make it up as we go
along," he says. As they dance, she jumps back when she starts to feel
something. She insists that things, "weren't feeling right." Sitting back
down, he notices that the champagne is flat and wants more. She stops him,
not wanting to get carried away like last time. He tries to be charming but
she snaps when he calls her "Doc" again, insisting that he may have John's
face, voice, mannerisms etc. but he's still not him. He doesn't understand.
Even Marlena's confused about where one John starts and the other begins. "There's
worse things in life than being confused," he says. Not for her, she claims.
She can never look at him without looking for the real John in him. "This is
as real as it's going to get," he claims. "Everything about you is
different," she says. Although some of his habits are the same, they only
remind her of the old John. He's disappointed; he thought that he and
"Blondie" were moving on, but apparently not. She loves him, but he
unsettles her and she's afraid of herself and can't love the man, "who he is
that doesn't know who he is." He doesn't know who he is either. "I'm just
kinda making him up as I go along...but y'know what? I like him," he says.
She's still confused and doesn't know how to be objective. "You've stuck it
out this far...aren't you curious to see how it ends?" he asks. Being
confused about him is confusing her about herself. He suggests that she just
let him control things. She's tempted, but can't do that and suffers with
knowing that the man she loves is gone. To John, it sounds like she thinks
he's dead. She has to leave to sort things out, she states rather abruptly.
"What do you hope to achieve by running away?" he prods. She doesn't know,
but she knows she doesn't want to be with him. When she's gone, she will
figure out if her feelings are real or not. Surprisingly, he begs her not to
go: He's making progress and doesn't want to regress. "Before you, I walked
around like Frankenstein's monster... I was programmed as an assassin and no
one could stop me... but you did," he explains. He knows what she wants and
he knows that, for her, being with him is like cheating on her own husband.
She repeats that she needs to sort this out. Suddenly, he changes his mind
and wonders if her going away is a bad thing after all. "You'll be here
waiting?" she asks. "I'm not a hard guy to find," he shrugs. Marlena rises,
saying that she can't make any promises. She avoids kissing him, but they
share a long, silent moment before she turns and walks away.
April 15, 2008
Bo sleeps in his hospital bed, Ava walks from the shadows and into the room.
"I'm sorry I have to do this Bo, but I really hate when people mess with
me," she explains before injecting something into his IV. As his machines
begin to beep, Hope wakes up. This was just a nightmare. She quickly falls
back to sleep and dreams of Ava hunting Kayla down and vowing to show her no
mercy. Kayla tries to guilt her into not killing her and the baby. It
doesn't work. Ava becomes furious and throws her out a window instead. Hope
wakes up again but only for a moment before nodding off into another dream.
This time she dreams of the misty wharf. Bo running away from her to see his
pop, telling her that he will always love her and reminding her to look
after Ciara. She calls after him and then wakes, leaping up and frantically
searching around the room for a means of escape.
captive Steve paces around his room wondering how to get out. He decides
that there is no way out. "Oh sweetness! How the hell did I get us into this
mess?" he asks himself. He hopes that Kayla won't worry too much and
promises to tell her everything when this is all over. He flashes back to
being in bed with Ava. She tells him how amazing he is. "I've never known
anyone like you...there's a lot more than meets the eye," she explains,
telling him that he has the heart of a good man, even if it's buried. She
tries to figure out what went wrong with him and he tells her she's been
too much "Oprah". Ava babbles about how safe he makes her feel and how he
loves her in a non-possessive way. "You're my angel...you saved my life," he
says. "You saved mine too. In ways you'll never know," she cries. They hold
each other tight and kiss until he snaps out of it and groans before
flashing back again. He tells her how great she is and how sure he is that
she could do better. She's sure that he's her knight in shining armor and
she loves him. "We're two of a kind and we belong together," she says before
whispering a marriage proposal to him. He's surprised; he had no idea that
"little miss wild child" would want to settle down. Neither did she, but
meeting a unique and crazy man like him has taught her what love really is
and changed her for the better. He reminds her about her father and the fact
that they are still sneaking around behind his back. She knows she won't
have a big wedding, but she's willing to settle for Vegas... then they can
have all sorts of babies. He tells her again that he loves her and accepts
her proposal. Steve snaps out of his recollections and begins calling for
Angelo. As usual, Angelo isn't happy to talk to him and reminds Steve that
it's his fault that Ava is the way she is now. "I'd kill you for what you
did to her... The way you broke her heart, I'd kill you with my bare hands,"
pub, Kayla and Bo slip on the surveillance DVD he got from a contact at the
hospital. They impatiently watch cars pull in and out of the garage before
noticing that a woman other than Hope is driving her car. When they notice
Hope slumped over in the back seat, he tries to contain his rage. Thinking
fast, they try to figure out what sort of bridge they must have crossed,
since everyone who crosses one gets photographed. He calls in another favor
to get security footage of all cars with Hope's make and, specifically,
license plate. They anxiously babble and Kayla looks for food while they
wait for an update from his friends in security. They soon get a call
tipping them off that the car went into Brookville. Unfortunately,
Brookville is huge and Hope and Steve are being held by a family that make
the hoods their used to dealing with look like boy scouts. He suddenly
remembers that he knows someone who actually knows something about the
He calls his contact, Earl, a street informant, over. Earl quickly
materializes and Bo quizzes him for information, offering him two hundred
bucks. That's not enough for Earl. Bo grabs him by throat and threatens to
break him in half if he doesn't start talking. Kayla pulls him off and Earl,
realizing that Bo's wife is involved, starts to spill the details of the
Vitali headquarters. He warns Bo that if he goes in with his temper like
this, his wife will be dead no matter where she's being held. Before
leaving, he tells Bo that the place is built like a fort and watched by
armed guards. Kayla worries and Bo tells her again that they can't get the
police involved. She tells him he can't leave without a doctor to look after
him and threatens to call the police if he leaves without her. Grudgingly,
he agrees and they hurry off together.
Kiriakis mansion, Nicole giggles and sighs in bed as she has an erotic
dream. She's disturbed when Philip comes knocking on the door and wakes her.
"Are you decent or, let me rephrase that, are you dressed?" he asks before
storming in. He demands to know what she did to Chloe, suggesting that she
must have tipped the Austrian authorities off. She claims that she doesn't
know what he's talking about and threatens to tell him details about her sex
life with Victor. Philip cringes and tells her to pack her bags; she's not
welcome in the house anymore. "Chloe's always given me the creeps...and now
I see I'm right," she says, insisting that the "Ghoul Girl" must have been
behind Brady's disappearance. They argue and he tries to throw her out
again. She calls him "heartless" and he calls her "vindictive" and she
threatens to call her lawyer. Philip doesn't think EJ will be much help but
she's sure that Mr. Wells is desperate enough to do anything she asks.
a call, she wakes him up and demands that he get over there and start
earning his wages. He's groggy and reluctant. After she threatens to hire
someone else, he agrees to come over. She turns and smirks to Philip.
and Nicole stand around waiting for EJ. Philip still can't figure out where
EJ found the time to become a lawyer. She offers him a nightcap but he still
just wants to be rid of her. As she pours herself a drink, EJ arrives,
noticeably annoyed that she has called him in the middle of the night. She
needs him to tell Philip that he can't throw her out like this. EJ explains
that Nicole has a legitimate claim to the property until things are worked
out in a court of law. He warns that a judge might decide to have Victor,
and even Philip, thrown out of the house rather than Nicole. "This woman is
a menace," Philip reminds him before saying that she had Chloe picked up
purely out of spite. EJ won't deny that she's a pain, but that doesn't
change her rights. "Thank you...I think," she says. Philip tells her not to
get comfortable and she thanks EJ, who points out that he will not be
available 24/7. Philip walks EJ out and promises to call his lawyers in the
morning. EJ smirks and walks out.
April 16, 2008
I'm Ready for us to be Together Again.
wanders around the mansion listening to the baby monitor. EJ drifts in and
tells her that the baby must have been overtired. It was only little Allie
who can't sleep, Gianni sleeps fine. Sami thinks Allie may be teething. EJ
thinks she just misses him. Sami disagrees, even though she drops off as
soon as he's around. "Allie is Lucas' daughter," she reminds him. He knows,
he's heard that one before. What's really bothering her? Everything
apparently: Marlena's run off to find herself, Lucas is still in prison and
she's stuck living with the new generation of DiMera creeps. John pops in to
remind her that he and Elvis don't have much in common; they aren't even on
the same side. This last remark makes EJ and Sami look at him cockeyed. He
explains that he has a problem with Nicole and wonders why his nephew would
side with the Kiriakis' over his own family. "I think if you knew a little
bit more about my client, you would have less of an issue with me taking
this case," EJ chuckles. Sami flounces away and EJ puts on his reading
glasses before explaining the case to John, though he can't really say much
since he's bound by confidentiality. "You are going to honor Nicole's
privacy? She's the least discrete person," Sami says, returning to the
conversation. EJ doesn't know why she finds his decision so hard to accept.
"Actually, I haven't decided I'm going to let you take the case," John
points out. EJ is baffled; since when does John have any say in what happens
in this family? Since he became the head of the family, John explains. "I am
the head of my family and I don't take orders from people like you," EJ
shoots back. John wonders how he can say that while living under his roof.
Elvis jumps up and tells Sami to get her things: They're moving out
immediately! Sami refuses; she can't trust John or EJ. She's also sure that
things with Nicole aren't innocent and he will get sucked into her trap. EJ
shakes his head. She reminds him that they have no money and nowhere to go.
John listens and smiles. EJ brings up Sami's past with Nicole and how she
dated her brother and married Lucas. He suggests that Sami actually drove
Lucas into becoming a drunk by lying on the stand about him hitting Will.
Sami insists that wasn't what happened and tells John that Nicole made
Brady's life hard. "Good to know," John says. Sami still doesn't understand
why EJ is helping her enemy. He insists that he is doing this for the good
of the children and, as they start crying, runs off to look after them.
alone, John offers Sami a nanny if she wants one, but she turns the offer
down. He can understand how trapped she must feel. That thoughtful comment
sounds like the old John to her. He assures her that she and the children
are safe in his house. "Out of curiosity, did your mother talk to you before
she left?" he asks. Marlena just said she had to go; beside, she wouldn't
tell him where she went even if she knew. "I understand," he says. Sami
doubts it. Marlena buried him but he came back as a different man. He asks
her to make an educated guess on what decision Marlena will make about him.
She doesn't know and tells him to stop messing with her head. She walks out
and he mumbles to himself. Later, he approaches EJ and tells him he's
re-thought his position on Nicole. Sami seems jealous, he suggests, and that
must be why she is so against this. "It would probably kill her to lose
another man to this woman...even you," John points out.
the Vitali compound, Patch and Hope pace around, wondering what is going on.
They listen at the door. In the hall, Ava asks Angelo what's going on. He
tells her that the walls have been breached. Angelo is not worried about
that though; he's more worried that this disturbance will allow her father
to find out that she has Patch and his wife locked up there. "I think you
know what we have to do," he says. Overhearing this, Patch and Hope realize
what it must mean: Getting rid of them permanently. He starts knocking on
the door and calling for Ava. Angelo tells her not to go in but she does
anyway. Patch wants to talk about them and their future. "I'm ready for us
to be together again," he states, explaining that things are over between he
and Kayla. Ava and Angelo point out that this is not a good time for this.
"Isn't this what you wanted?" he asks. She flashes back to making love to
him and planning a family. Angelo snaps her out of it. Steve asks her what's
wrong. She tells him that they have to deal with his wife first. "What about
the baby?" she asks. "We'll have our own babies," he assures her. She starts
to have a headache and begins to cry out. Patch tries to hold her still
while Angelo tries to give her her medicine. Ava breaks away and claims that
she doesn't want to hurt anyone else, but how can she be with him if his
wife is still alive? Angelo tries to get her to take her medicine again but
Patch punches him before he can. Angelo draws his gun, promising to make
Steve sorry for doing that. "You don't care because if you did, you would
never have let it get this far," Angelo says, vowing that he will finally
have revenge on Patch for what he's done to Ava, and he'll use his bare
hands to do it. He slaps Steve unconscious.
and Bo stumble around in the yard of the compound. They start to jabber and
she reminds him he should be in
Guard dogs bark and the alarms go off. They continue to argue until the
guards flash a light on her. Bo hides behind a bush and Kayla demands to see
Ava immediately. They radio for Angelo and Kayla tells the guards that she
is just there to get her husband. "My name is Kayla Johnston and I am
Steve's real wife. Now tell Ava I want to talk to her right now," she
demands as Bo pulls out his gun. They try calling Angelo but get no answer.
They wonder if they should "cap her" and decide to take her to Ava. Before
they can pull her away, Bo leaps out and knocks them out with the butt of
his gun. He almost collapses in pain from the exertion. She helps him stand
and he hands her the gun. They plod on towards the house.
Steve wakes on the floor and Hope, bound to a chair, worries. "Ava made this
mess and I'm going to clean it up," Angelo explains. He gets interrupted by
a call informing them that two of their men were knocked out and cuffed. He
demands that the intruders be grabbed or shot immediately. Angelo takes Ava
into the hall and gently tells her to stay put while he takes care of
things. She begins apologizing and hugs him, but, while her arms are around
him, she reaches into his pocket and takes something out. Once Angelo
leaves, she remembers her plans to get rid of the captive couple and returns
to the room. Patch begs her to untie him so they can have the life they
always wanted. "Don't! You never meant what you were saying," she accuses,
sadly shaking her head and demanding that he admit that he never truly loved
her. She knows what he's up to and is sure that the intruders are there for
him. "That's right." Bo announces as he and Kayla appear in the doorway with
their guns drawn. They start to untie the captives and Kayla embraces Steve,
kissing him and shocking Ava. They explain that she is the real Kayla. As
they head for the door, Kayla starts to have spasms. When Steve tries to
help her, Ava grabs a gun and takes aim, firing and hitting Hope.
April 17, 2008
You are Still a Great Liar
Max sleeps in his bed, a figure clad in black sneaks through his window. It's
just Stephanie. She wakes him up, which isn't easy since it's a quarter after
three in the morning. "What's going on?" he groggily asks. Kayla's missing and
she doesn't know what to do. He looks for an explanation but she thinks that
Steve's crazy ex-girlfriends must have kidnapped her mother. As she explains the
situation in detail, he becomes convinced that she must be right. He's hesitant
to let her run out and do anything, however. She becomes frustrated and lashes
at him before breaking into tears. He comforts her and promises to help her find
them. Going to the window, she flashes back to conversations with her father,
warning her about the trouble that might happen. Max approaches her and she
apologizes for flipping out at him before. He tells her that he has an idea: He
thinks that Bo and Kayla are probably together and, since they're the most
stubborn people they know, they probably went after Ava themselves. Stephanie
thinks they should go to the cops and ask for help. He dissuades her, suggesting
that Bo and Steve can take of this themselves. After pacing around, she decides
not to call the police. Changing the topic, she says that she's sure he'll hate
her when he has to actually wake up in a few hours. "I feel like I'm in the best
dream of my life," he tells her. They kiss and he invites her to stay and sleep.
She agrees to stay, but won't be able to sleep. He tucks her in and she sucks
her thumb, telling him that she feels safe with him.
drifts downstairs at the mansion. She flashes back to the conversation she
overheard between Chloe and Philip about Brady's disappearance. She soon finds
Philip, sitting alone with a drink. He tells her to go back to bed. She pours
herself a drink instead and tells him how much fun dinner was. She even had
enough to drink to make him tolerable. He wants to know what she wants. "Besides
eternal youth, world peace and all your father's money?" she asks, before
wondering how someone like Sami could get someone like EJ. Sex and lies, Philip
suggests; exactly the same way she gets everything. She reminds him that she is
still the woman of the house. He reminds her that hiring EJ was a dubious
choice: He's a DiMera and he's married to Sami. Nicole will be glad to see Sami
squirm, but Philip doubts she can trust a DiMera for long. "Why did you come
back Nicole...you were gone for two years and chose now. Why is that? Did
something happen in Los Angeles?" he probes. This makes her uncomfortable. She
tries to duck off to bed but he wants the truth. Reluctantly, she admits that
her partnership with Austin didn't work out.
can get any more out of her, Chloe storms in and begins lashing out at Nicole
for having her picked up by the Austrian Consulate. Nicole plays stupid and then
justifies herself. Chloe demands to know why she did it. "I have decided to make
it my mission to make you pay for what you did," Nicole explains, sure that
something terrible has happened to Brady. Chloe continues to protest innocence,
claiming that she was, "sad that Brady was so torn up with my death that he
would date a tramp." Nicole finds that hilarious and accuses Chloe of just
being manipulative, vain and a pathetic washed up hag. Brady must have finally
realized that and, when he tried to leave her, she got rid of him. The women
start to fight but Philip stops them before they can make a scene. They threaten
each other and Philip calms them down again, telling them they will have to
learn to live under the same roof or they're both out of there. Nicole reminds
him that he can't kick her out. He sends Chloe to bed and tells Nicole they
still have to talk. "I think it's time you and I got something straight," he
starts, pointing out that she will never get his father's money as long as
they're still married. He tells her that in his father's will, everything goes
to him and she gets nothing... unless she gives him what he wants now. "I want
you to work for me," he explains. She's baffled. He explains that his father
will stall this divorce until she can't afford lawyers to fight for it or until
he dies and Philip inherits everything. If she wants anything, she has to work
for him. He can tell that she's a good little spy. If she helps him, he'll make
sure she's comfortable. "Okay, I'll do it," she smiles.
Kayla and Bo rescue Hope and Steve from the Vitali compound, they explain to Ava
that she kidnapped the wrong woman. As they rush the door, Kayla collapses with
a cramp. Ava suddenly whips out a gun and shoots Hope. Bo takes aim at Ava but
Steve wrestles the gun away, throwing Ava into the wall instead. Kayla starts to
check Hope out, examining the wound while Bo chants that she will be okay. After
tying up the unconscious Ava, they slip out. She flashes back to telling Steve
that he has the heart of a kind and decent man. He tells her that he would never
hurt her. "You're someone I can always count on, someone who will always be
there and love me," she says. He promises to never let anything happen to her.
As she wakes up, she asks herself how Patch could do this to her. The alarm
system goes off and the guards rush out, cornering Patch and the others in the
hallway. It quickly becomes clear that they are surrounded and have no way out.
Reinforcements are on the way and Hope swoons.
escapees are brought back into Ava's room and she's untied. "How could you do
this to me Patch?" she asks. Kayla calls Ava crazy, which only makes her
furious. Her migraines start again and she screams. "I am so sick of this...kill
them. Kill all of them," she orders. Patch tries to stop her, begging her not to
kill any more innocent people. She points out that he is hardly innocent. He
agrees, but Kayla and her baby are... if she needs to hurt someone, she can hurt
him. She claps. "That was beautiful. You are still a great liar," she grins.
When Kayla gets up, Ava shoves her down and Steve begins shouting, urging her to
take it out on him. "Okay," she shrugs, taking out a gun and levelling it at
him. Before she can shoot, Angelo grabs the gun away, telling her that her
father wouldn't like this. Her father may want Patch dead, but he wouldn't want
her to do it. "Yeah, you're right. You do it for me," she smiles. Steve tells
her that he didn't know she was a monster. "The woman I fell in love with is
still in there. She wouldn't hurt me," he says. She shakes her head, reminding
him that he doesn't love her. She repeats her order to have them killed. Hope
begs to know why they have to die: What did Patch do that was so terrible? Ava
doesn't feel that she owes them anything, but it's an interesting story...
April 18, 2008
I Know What I'm Doing
the Kiriakis mansion, Philip assures Nicole that his offer will be worth her
while...she might even enjoy it. He wants her to spy on John Black, he
explains. She's not following, but he says she'll like John. "He's kinda
like you," he muses, reminding her that she will get everything she
deserves, "and then some." She seems to be warming to the idea a little
more, but wants to go and have her liquid breakfast so they stroll out.
Meanwhile, at the DiMera mansion, John asks a worried Paul what he wants. He
wants John to make things right; his wife is after him for money and child
support, plus he's about to be indicted for fraud. John tells him to relax;
he's working to have him put back on top, but "When I'm done, you're going
to owe me."
and Nicole head over to the pub and he advises her to use her "womanly
wiles" to get herself registered on John's blank slate. She pushes out her
cleavage and goes in to work her magic while Philip stays outside. Striding
through the door, she grabs a Bloody Mary before dropping herself at John's
table. He doesn't remember her, of course, so she introduces herself. He
assures her that he doesn't listen to gossip and makes up his own mind. She
starts to ask him about his new life and comments that the new John is much
more interesting than the old one. "You are the first person to think that,"
he says. As they eat breakfast, she admits that she always had a crush on
John. John's bewildered; he heard that the old John was boring and
self-righteous. "Conservative," Nicole glosses, but there was something sexy
about him and there's something even sexier about the new John. She smiles
at Philip as he sits at the bar and listens in. John tells her all about his
butler, Rolf. "I bet he's still creepy," she says. "We're working on it, but
it's going kind of slow," he explains. She asks him out for dinner. He
smiles and tells her she seems like an "interesting lady". She promises him
some fun, offering to bite him if he's into that kind of thing. Philip walks
over and tells them that they deserve each other before he walks out. She
thanks John for the pancakes and tells him she's excited to see him tonight.
After kissing his cheek, she skips away.
in the Sam Hill are you doin'?" Morgan asks as she walks into Philip outside
the pub. He asks her why she is so nervous. It's because he's out there
lurking around and dragging her father through his battles with John, she
explains. He tells her to stop being coy and asks her to join him for
breakfast so he can prove that he's not after her father. She'd like to, but
she's meeting her father. Paul suddenly appears and he and Philip quickly
start sniping at each other. Morgan tries to get Philip to back off, but
Paul ends it, saying that he is only there to have breakfast with his
daughter. They go inside. When they sit down to eat, she stares at John and
can't stomach her breakfast. She reminds her father that John is the one who
landed him in this mess in the first place. He insists that nobody made him
do anything but she's sure that John's a jerk. Once again, he assures her
that everything will be back to normal soon. She announces that she has to
go and see Chelsea. After giving him a hug, she walks away.
and Nicole meet outside. She fills him in on the details. "I don't see why
business and pleasure can't mix," she sighs. He says they can, as long as
John doesn't suspect anything. Meanwhile, John and Paul talk in the pub.
Commenting on Nicole, Paul reminds John that he's married. John says that
it's none of his business. "I know what I'm doing," he insists.
the Vitali compound, Ava offers to tell the captives all about what Patch
did to her. Angelo is anxious to just take them all out, but Ava doesn't
mind waiting. Everyone knows they'll die soon so they'd like to have an idea
why. She explains that her father never approved of her and Patch, but the
only thing that mattered to her was them. They eloped and ran off to Nevada
to marry in a tiny chapel. She wore a simple white dress and prepared
herself to marry the man of her dreams. As he listens to this, Patch seems
to become terrified of what she will reveal. Ava continues, claiming that
she had never been more in love with him than at that moment in the chapel.
Patch wants to stop this, but Ava won't. She prompts him to finish the story
instead. He turns to Kayla and begins, flashing back to Ava walking down the
aisle to him. She was so beautiful and happy, but he didn't feel that way.
Instead, there was a sick feeling and flashes of another wedding, his
wedding to Kayla... there was something wrong but he didn't know what it
was. "I couldn't go through with it," he says. Ava starts to cry and Patch
offers to stop. She tells him to go on. He explains how he walked out the
door with his head spinning and images of the other wedding, and the other
bride, in his head. As he turned to go back and explain everything to Ava,
two guys grabbed him and threw him in the back of car. Ava stops the story.
She accuses him of lying, but he insists that this is what happened and he
never wanted to hurt her. Part of her died when he walked out on her, she
explains. The captives ask to hear the rest of the story. Ava lets him
continue. He explains his abduction and torture by Stefano. Finally, he
escaped from him and met her. She changed him and gave him something to live
for. He fell in love with her and wanted to marry her. "It killed me that I
never got a chance to say goodbye," he insists. Ava resumes her side of the
story, explaining how she collapsed and was taken into a hospital. After
that, she was locked in her room and kept captive by her father. Patch
apologizes, but that doesn't make her feel better. He took everything from
her and turned her into a person she despises. "I hate you!" she screams.
drowsy Chelsea slumps over to breakfast with Kate. Her grandmother wonders
if this was a good idea but Chelsea insists that she needed to get out of
the house. Something seems wrong and Kate worries. Daniel suddenly appears
and asks if Chelsea's okay; she wasn't looking well at the Java Café. "You
two were at the Java Café?" Kate asks, her ears perked. Daniel suspects that
Chelsea is hiding something and she admits that she's been pushing herself
too hard. He thinks she needs a keeper. His phone rings and he runs off.
Kate decides that her granddaughter doesn't look well enough to be out and
bundles her up to take her home. Once they get there, Chelsea collapses.
Before Kate can call an ambulance, Daniel rushes in. As he whips out his
stethoscope and checks her over, Kate calls 9-1-1. Soon after, Kate starts
throwing a fit, telling Daniel that she will hold him responsible if
something is wrong with her granddaughter. He reminds her that he, "wasn't
too hip about doing the surgery in the first place." She apologizes and the
doorbell rings. The paramedics come in and Daniel explains the case to them.
Morgan suddenly runs in and asks what's going on as Chelsea is loaded up for
