At the mansion, Theresa tells Alistair that she wants to align herself with him completely. He asks her if he is sure about this, think carefully. She is sure. He warns her that once she gives herself to him completely, he will never give her up. He will own her mind, body and soul. She asks if he is backing out of their deal to help her get Ethan and Jane. Alistair says no, but she needs to know that if she joins forces with him then she will be tainted goods in Ethan's eyes, he'll never have her back. Theresa doesn't believe that, she'll play his game and win. Alistair says even if Ethan does the unthinkable and wants her back, nobody plays his game and wins as he makes up the rules. Alistair gets a phone call, he tells the person very good and he'll be there shortly. He then says what, that can't be? Alistair hangs up and tells Theresa that he has some business to attend to, and she should think about his offer.
In the living room, Ivy and Gwen are still trying to convince Ethan that Theresa is insane and a danger to little Jane, and that she should not be allowed to see the girl. Ethan refuses to believe that, he won't believe that Theresa would ever hurt her own daughter. Ethan eventually leaves to take care of things, and Theresa shows up and overhears Ivy and Gwen talking about how Theresa should never be allowed to see Jane again. Theresa lashes out at them for trying to keep her from her daughter. They say that Ethan agrees with them, and right now he is off filing the necessary papers so that Theresa is never again allowed to see Jane without a responsible adult present. Theresa refuses to let this happen.
At Pilar's, Pilar and Martin are discussing Theresa's foolish behavior when Ethan shows up. HE says he needs their help with Theresa. He says Ivy and Gwen are on a bender to keep Theresa from every seeing Jane again. Pilar says that would kill Theresa. Ethan knows, and that is why he wants their help to talk to Theresa and save her from herself and her own foolish actions.
At the Blue Note, Fancy and Noah end up in the storeroom together, and they wonder what the other is doing here. Fancy says she came to find her wrap, but Noah thinks she followed him in here. She says as if! He says he came in here to find a rat, but perhaps she was the rat. Fancy doesn't believe his story, until a rat scurries across her feet causing her to scream and jump into his arms. She later decides she needs to get out of the storeroom, but they find that they are locked in. Noah is glad as this gives them a chance to talk, and for her to explain why she really came here. He breaks out the champagne, and she swears she came for her wrap. Fancy gets a little drunk and giggly, and the two bond. Noah just hopes that her grandfather or his goons don't show up and ruin things, leaving him for dead like last time. Fancy says please, her grandfather hasn't a clue where she is right now. Outside, Alistair looks in the window from the alley and is furious that Fancy is with Noah.
At Crane Industries, Chad talks with Valerie. He is holding Miles, and she takes him and calls him her little man. She tells Chad how much she cares for him and for Miles, and how she will wait until he's ready to have a relationship. He thanks her, and he says he can see how well she and Miles get along. Valerie knows Whitney is still a problem though. He says she is. Valerie tells him that Whitney is his half sister and they can never be, plus she joined a cloistered convent to get away from him. Doesn't that tell him something. Chad just isn't ready to move on right now. Valerie tells him what an incredible team they could be, both in and out of Crane Industries. She then begins talking business, Fox is up to something secretive. Chad thought all the scheming was behind them, but Valerie says Fox was raised to be a Crane and he's still not happy that Chad got the office he had his eye on. She says Fox knows Julian favors Chad here, and he doesn't like that. She suggests they keep a very close eye on Fox, and she'll be his spy. Meanwhile, Kay and Fox are busy kissing, and she tells him that they need to get to work. He begins telling her about this amazing secret deal he has set up with a think tank in China, and how it's going to blow everyone away when he reveals it. He gives Kay her first assignment, she needs to email his proposal to the corporate offices in China. Chad, Miles and Valerie show up, and they all talk. Valerie convinces Chad he needs to put up a front with Fox like they are getting along, so Chad asks Fox to be Miles' godfather. Fox is honored and says of course. Chad suggests they go to his office to celebrate. They all leave, all but Kay who wants to send out the emails for Fox. Valerie hangs behind too and spies on Kay. She says she won't let Kay take her down.
On the Crane jet, Eve and Julian buckle themselves in, and Eve says goodbye to Harmony. Suddenly sirens are heard, and Eve says it is the police. Julian tells the pilot to take off, but he can't. He says they'll take his license if he does. The cops board the plane and arrest both Eve and Julian for attempting to flee and obstructing justice.
In jail, Eve and Julian are in opposite cells. Eve is devastated, but Julian says they will get out of this. Eve says not her, by attempting to flee she's going to look guiltier than ever. Eve says the jury is going to fry her for sure after this.
September 20, 2005
Eve is in jail and Julian is blaming himself. Julian says when he
finds out who is really responsible for this . . . . Julian leaves to
call his lawyer, and Eve thinks she should probably used to being locked
up. Julian is freed thanks to Judge Reilly, but he cant get Eve bail.
He says that is his fault, he never should have convinced her to run.
Eve says she could have said no to running away with him. Julian knows
his father did this to them, he will stop at nothing to destroy those he
feel have betrayed him. Julian once again apologizes to Eve for all of
this. Julian promises to find a way to get her out of here, and they
share a kiss through the bars. Later, Eve thinks about Lizs eruption
in the courtroom. She thinks shes going to be in prison for the rest
of her life.
Ethan is still at the Lopez-Fitzgerald house asking Martin and Pilar to help him talk sense into Theresa. Pilar says Theresa is too irrational to reason with right now, and she explains everything that happened with the disks and the confrontation with Gwen. Pilar thinks they are too late to save Theresa, she is determined to win him and Jane back. Pilar shutters to think what she will do next. Ethan says if they help him to get Theresa to act responsibly then he can convince Gwen to allow Theresa see Jane. They thank him for doing this, but Pilar says getting Theresa under control will be a problem. Ethan thinks first they need to get her out of the Crane Mansion.
At the mansion, Theresa tells Ivy and Gwen she doesnt believe them, Ethan wouldnt banish her from Janes life. Gwen says he is just protecting her from her psychotic mother. Theresa knocks over a chair and says she isnt crazy. Gwen says is she certifiable. Theresa yells at Gwen that she is a liar and she admitted the truth to her about sending the email to the tabloid. Gwen tells Theresa to accept defeat, she has lost her daughter and Ethan is finished with her. Theresa says Ethan wouldnt do this, shes going to find him and ask him. They say hes gone. Theresa cries, and Gwen says as usual it is all about poor Theresa. Gwen says never mind what she has put her through, and Gwen begins listing all of Theresas atrocities against her. Ivy says yes Ethan has finally seen the violent monster she is that might actually hurt her own child in a psychotic rage. Gwen tells her to look at her arm, it isnt the new fall look, it is proof she is a lunatic and a dangerous one. Theresa runs off, and Rebecca shows up and wonders what she missed.
Later Ethan returns, and he is not happy with Rebecca for making Eve look bad in court. Ivy tells herself shell be glad to see Eve go and take her own secrets with her to jail. Gwen feels sorry as Eve has always been so nice to them. Rebecca asks what about her, Eve is sharing her husbands bed. Ethan says speaking of her husband, he hands her legal papers. She reads the divorce settlement and says this is outrageous. She says there isnt enough money for her limo driver or her pool boy here. Ethan says well their marriage was brief, she signed a prenup and they didnt have children. Rebecca says she wants more and shell get it, even if she has to hold Julian hostage! Ethan says this is not his problem as his priority is Eve. Rebecca storms off. Julian then shows up and tells Ethan that he thinks it is over for Eve. Julian informs him about their escape attempt, and how father stopped them and had them arrested. Ethan says the judge will not give Eve bail now that shes a flight risk. Julian says Eve will go to jail and the real would be killer will get off free. Ivy looks cold, and Gwen makes a face. Ethan and Julian discuss the case, and they realize perhaps Liz wasnt the victim. Julian begins to suspect Eve was the victim, and Rebecca was the one who poisoned her.
Later, Gwen talks with Ethan about limiting Theresas visits to Jane. He says he talked with Martin and Pilar about talking sense into Theresa and getting her back home. He says step one is getting her out of this mansion, theyll deal with everything else in time.
Rebecca is in her room brooding over the settlement, but decides to worry about it tomorrow. She turns of the light to sleep, and a hand grabs her mouth. She tries to scream but cant. It is only Julian, and she asks if she is trying to scare her to death so he doesnt have to pay her alimony. He says as tempting as that is he wants her alive to tell the judge she is the one who poisoned Eves drink.
Theresa returns to her room and is furious that Ethan betrayed her. She calls Alistair and tells him that she has thought it over and wants to take his offer. She says she is ready to do everything he wants of her. He says everything, and she says yes. He hopes she realizes this is it, there is no turning back. Alistair says theyll talk later, right now he has bigger fish to fry. Theresa looks at a photo of her, Ethan and the kids. She says this is her last chance for them to be together.
At Crane Industries, Fox and Chad have a drink while Miles sleeps. They toast to them, brothers and partners. Meanwhile, Kay sends off the email and then heads off. Valerie then sneaks in and sabotages Kay by deleting her email before they are sent off. Apparently Alistair is so worried about corporate sabotage that any and all emails first go to the legal department for review. She says Kay will have egg on her face and Foxs little project will be caput. Kay goes to join Chad and Fox, and Chad welcomes her to the company. He asks what shes working on, and she says shes just getting used to the computer system. Chad tells Kay if she needs help to ask him or Valerie. Chad then wonders where Valerie is. Valerie is still deleting Kays emails. Valerie eventually joins them, and she welcomes Kay as well and tells her to feel free to ask her if she needs help with anything. She thinks they will become fast friends. Kay says shed like that. Fox has to get back to his office, and Kay heads off with him. Valerie gives Chad a look. Chad knows the look and wonders what is going on. Valerie fills him in on eavesdropping on Kay and Fox, and learning about Fox deal with the Chinese government. Valerie says she told him not to trust Fox. He says she was right, but she says it is not about right or wrong, it is about who ends up on top. Chad says she is right and they have to stall them. Valerie says it is already handled. She says Fox wont suspect a thing, and Kay will be fired because she is so green.
Fox and Kay go back to the office to check for a response, but nobody has responded. Fox wonders why nobody responded to the email. Kay says it is still early, but he says not over there it isnt. He says if they dont get a response soon then this project is dead in the water. They wait for a response, but nothing comes through. Fox decides to make a few phone calls to Asia and hope they get responses that way. He learns the emails werent sent, so Fox checks the other Asian offices, none of them got the email. Kay knows she sent those emails out. Fox says its okay, its her first day and most people make mistakes. Kay says she sent them, but then finds out someone in legal retrieved it and deleted them. Fox thinks perhaps something happened while they were sending, but Kay knows she saw the messages sent message on the screen. Kay doesnt understand how this happened. Fox says well they missed the deadline and it will be months before another opportunity comes along. Kay hates that she let him down. Chad and Valerie show up and asks if something is the matter? Kay says she just screwed up something for Fox and he missed a deadline. They offer to help if they can, but Fox says it is too late. Fox once again tells Kay that it is okay, it is her first day and mistakes happen. Valerie tells Kay not to be upset, things happen. Kay says it wasnt her fault, she was careful and didnt screw up. Kay says she thinks someone set her up to make her look bad. Valerie looks nervous as Kay explains how she thinks someone sabotaged her, but she doesnt know who. Perhaps someone who wanted her job? Valerie says there were others up for the job, but she is here for her as us girls have to stick together.
At the Blue Note, Alistair watches from outside the back door of the storeroom as Noah and Fancy sip wine. He talks to himself and says Fancy better not get involved with Noah, she better not force him to hate her. He says if Fancy fails him then she will regret it. He wants her to turn her back on Noah. He watches them kiss and cant believe this. He says hell give Fancy another chance to stay in his good graces as long as she doesnt give herself to Noah Bennett.
Fancy and Noah are laughing and drinking in the storeroom. Noah says she has a nice laugh, and she says him too. Noah finds Fancys wrap and gives it to her. Fancy once again apologizes to Noah for hurting him, she lied to her grandfather because she knows he doesnt want her to get involved with some guy from the other side of the tracks. She then kisses Noah. Liz finally shows up and tells Noah to get his butt back out in the club and shimmy and shake some drinks. Noah says he cant, he has to leave. Liz says those ladies are waiting for their eye candy, but Noah says hell make it up to her. Noah and Fancy then run off together.
Fancy and Noah return to the beach for a second go at their romantic evening. Meanwhile, Alistair has his limo driver follow them to the beach. Back at the beach, Fox and Fancy are dancing by the fire Noah has lit. As they get down to business, Alistair spies on them from the bushes. Alistair is of course pissed as he watches Fancy and Noah making love. He says Fancy crossed the line, she betrayed his trust and now he will destroy her and Noah Bennett.

In Rebeccas room, Julian wants Rebecca to admit that she tried to
poison the punch the night of Luis and Sheridans wedding. Rebecca
screams to Alistair to help her, but Julian says nice try. Rebecca asks
why she would try to kill Liz? He says the intended victim wasnt Liz,
it was Eve. Rebecca says Eve was the killer, she couldnt be the
victim too. Julian says only four people were in that basement, himself,
her, Eve and Liz. He knows Eve didnt poison Liz, and he knows Liz
didnt poison herself, so that leaves her. She asks how he could think
that of her, she thinks life is sacred and she wouldnt try to hurt
Liz. He says he thinks she tried to poison Eve, and Liz accidentally
picked up the wrong glass. Julian cant believe he didnt think of
this before. He says she had motive and opportunity. She asks how she
got the poison? Julian doesnt know, but she is the one who did it.
Rebecca says she didnt show up until after Liz was poisoned, but he
says they only have her word and they know what it is worth. He thinks
she could have been skulking around waiting to poison Eve. Rebecca
remembers what happened the night she tried to poison Eve, but says
really its not like she hangs around in church basements where they
have the AA meetings. Julian thinks he has it right, but Rebecca says
Eve is the killer and he needs to face that fact. She says Eve hates
Liz, she wanted Liz dead. Julian says not as much as she wanted Eve
dead. He says he wont rest until he can prove it. When the show
returned from the news interruption, Julian is still accusing Rebecca of
being the one who put the poison in the punch. Rebecca says fine, prove
it buster! Julian says he cant prove it, and she says yes there is
nothing he can do. She warns him if he tries to smear her name then
shell hire a pack of lawyers to make sure he ends up flat broke in
the gutter. She says he belongs there for that ridiculous divorce
settlement he offered her. He says if she can keep Eve from going to
prison then he will give her anything she wants. She says anything?
Julian says name it.
Meanwhile, Gwen continues to tell Ethan how Theresa is sneaky and a liar and wont stop until she gets Jane back as well as Ethan. Ethan says things are about to change, but Gwen doubts it. She says Theresa is delusional and crazy and cant be left alone with the baby. Ethan knows Theresa is her own worst enemy, but he knows she wouldnt hurt a baby. Gwen cant believe he just said that to her. Gwen says she is the reason she lost her Sarah, Ethan wasnt there to see Theresa push her when she was sick and nine month pregnant . Ethan tells her that it is being taken care of. He says eventually Theresa will come to her senses. Gwen says why, he obviously hasnt. The show was interrupted here for a local scandal.

Theresa says shes not going anywhere. Pilar says this obsession with another womans husband needs to stop. Theresa says Gwen stole her daughter, she will get Jane and Ethan back. Pilar says it wont happen. Theresa says it will, she will use Alistair to help her. Martin says nobody uses Alistair, the man tried to kill his own daughter. Martin asks her if Alistair can make Ethan love her? Theresa says Ethan already loved her. Something is said about punishing people. Theresa says she is not going to be punished, others will. She says she just has to stick it out. Pilar says she warned her what would happen if she sold her soul to the devil. She says she has become vindictive and harsh, and for her to try and break up Ethan and Gwens marriage is a sin. Theresa asks if it was it a sin when Gwen ruined her wedding day, was it a sin when she sent the information to the tabloids and framed her? She says Gwen has caused her a life of pain and she hopes that pain falls back on her tenfold. Martin says this is like the exorcist, Alistairs voice is coming out of her mouth. Pilar says its like shes been brainwashed by Alistair. Theresa tells them to go home as they are trespassing. Martin says fine, and he picks Theresa up and says they are taking this little brat with them.
Martin and Pilar take Theresa home. Shes furious and says they have kidnapped her and are treating her like a child. Pilar says they love her and are doing this for her own good.

The kids show up to see her, and she is given all the time she needs as the cop is an old patient of hers. Simone asks what happened, and she tearfully explains. When the show returns from the news interruption, Eve is saying she should have taken the plea bargain. Whitney says no, she would have gone to jail for 45 years. Eve says at this point she will probably spend life in jail, and with any luck shell die soon. Simone tells her not to say that, and Chad says they will get her out of here. Chad says theyll visit her in the meantime, but Eve refuses to have Miles visit her in the state pen. She then tells Whitney that if she takes her vows then Miles will never see her either. Eve says the reason she asked them here was to say goodbye, this is it, the last time shell see them. They all share a family hug as Eve cries.

He says then get your butt in gear and get back to work. He pushes her in front of a speeding car. The car stops in time, and the driver gets out to check on Jessica.
