January 28, 2008
In Maria's room, Tabitha finds the doll that Endora hid Miguel's letter in
looking rather odd. She sees something is wrong with the neck, and wonders if
Endora and Maria were playing hangman again. Endora says yes, and Tabitha is
glad they were using a doll and not her friend Tina again. However she soon
thinks Endora is fibbing, she sees someone pulled the head off and tried to jam
it back on as if to hide it. She thinks Endora is protecting one of her friends,
probably Tina. Endora says yes she's protecting a friend, but doesn't admit it's
Miguel. Tabitha says she'll let this one slide, beside Maria has a million
dolls. However this one was given to her by the sainted Pilar. She doesn't know
why she's worrying about this, she has bigger fish to fry. She says she has to
find that letter Miguel wrote exposing her.
In Tabitha's kitchen, Miguel, Kay, Noah and Paloma are trying to
get their wedding planned. They all agree they want it at Saint Margaret Mary's,
and Father Lonigan to do the ceremony. They've also agreed on colors and
flowers. Paloma then realizes they need a date, one that will work for them all.
This proves to be an issue. When they finally get a date, the church is booked
that day. Tabitha soon joins them and learns from Kay what is going on. Tabitha
makes jokes, wishing them luck as most marriages end in divorce nowadays. She
suggests they live in sin, they've already turned their backs on the church with
the amount of premarital sex they've had. Kay says no they will be getting
married, just as soon as they can agree on everything. Tabitha mentions magic
could help out. Miguel hears this and won't have it. Suddenly a stuffed bat
comes to life and flies around. Noah shouts it's more magic! Miguel is furious,
but Tabitha says it must be Endora. They bring Endora in and claim the bat is a
remote control toy of hers, which Noah and Paloma seem to believe. Paloma says
they still need a date. They either postpone the wedding for over a year, or
call off the double wedding idea. Endora uses her magic to help. The church
calls back and claims there was a mistake, the date is available. Kay thinks it
will all be fine. Paloma and Noah head off, while Miguel suspects Kay and
Tabitha used magic to make that happen. Kay says they didn't, and she says they
can prove it. Tabitha has a contraption that shows when anyone has done magic.
It's a black light flashlight that picks up traces of ectoplasm on one's hands
after doing magic. Tabitha bought it to watch after Kay, who promised not to do
magic unsupervised. It shows neither Tabitha nor Kay did magic. Miguel is
satisfied and says this proves things can and do work out without magic. Endora
meanwhile shines it on her hands, they are all green.
At the Book Cafe, Fancy is having a coffee and wondering why she
was so mean to Luis and Marty. Pretty spies on her and gloats about how her plan
is working. Luis catches her and wonders why she's spying on Fancy? Pretty
claims she's just been so worried, she thought Fancy was over these episodes.
She says if she had another one in public, she could be arrested. Luis thinks
she's amazing for looking out for Fancy this way. Luis goes to talk to Fancy,
while Pretty uses the control to make her go bonkers. Luis sits down and wants
to understand why she acted the way she did, he doesn't understand. She lashes
out saying he doesn't understand because he's a moron. Luis is stunned. When
Pretty rushes out and says she should take her home, Fancy says she doesn't need
help from the Elephant Woman! Luis says that is mean, but Fancy says she should
be used to it. Pretty ends up running off in tears. Luis says he doesn't know
her anymore, he doesn't know if he ever did. Pretty listens in and is happy,
thinking she's one step closer to getting Luis.
Later Paloma shows up at the Book Cafe to meet Luis. He's
worried about Fancy's behavior, as well as others. He says it's like the whole
town has gone bonkers. He says Theresa left town, apparently she's had another
guy on the side. Paloma finds that hard to believe. Meanwhile Fancy is on the
docks and her head is hurting. Noah shows up to check on her. Pretty is spying
and uses her remote, causing Fancy to pull Noah into a kiss.
In Mexico, Juanita continues to hold a gun on Theresa, telling
her as soon as Pilar gets here she will kill them both, then use Theresa's cell
phone to track her family and kill them. Theresa quickly grabs and smashes her
cell phone, which infuriates Juanita. She says she should kill her now, but she
won't. Pilar soon shows up, telling Juanita to let Theresa go. Juanita can't
believe she's finally got Pilar, and she holds a gun on her. She tells Pilar if
she knows what date it is? Pilar does. Juanita relishes the fact that it is the
anniversary of when Pilar killed her family. Pilar tells her to let Theresa go,
but Juanita refuses saying she lied, she will kill them and her entire family.
Juanita still remembers Pilar's visit, how she found Carlos dead, with her
lipstick and her scent on him. Then Pilar had her children killed, she remembers
their screams. She says they were innocent. Pilar says Carlos was not innocent,
he was a bad man. She says Juanita just wouldn't face it. Juanita screams at
Pilar, saying Carlos had no choice, he was groomed to take over the business.
Pilar says the business was drugs, selling death to people. Juanita knows. She
says at first she was horrified, but then she accepted it. She also says she has
taken over for Carlos, and it has made her rich. Pilar thinks it has made her
feared, people hate her. Pilar wonders where her friend went to, saying she's
turned her back on God and the church. Juanita says God did nothing to save her
family. Juanita gets upset over Pilar's words, so upset she says she can't even
enjoy killing them tonight. She says they have a reprieve for one night. She
tells them not to think about escaping, the windows and doors are electrified.
She then locks them in the room and leaves. Pilar thinks maybe they should just
electrocute themselves and get it over with rather than face Juanita's torture.
However Pilar says there may be hope. She says she thought Juanita
was playing her, so she left a letter at the hotel explaining everything to be
sent to Luis. Pilar thinks if he gets it in time, they will be okay. Back at the
hotel, the letter is sitting on a desk with "important fax" marked on
it, but it gets blown off the desk and right into the trash!
January 29, 2008
At the Book Cafe, Paloma and Luis have a talk. Luis remains
confused by Fancy's behavior, how she could be so nasty towards Pretty, himself,
Marty. He says she acted like this before, but he thought it was because of her
headaches and nose bleeds. He has she hasn't had those in awhile though. Luis
also says Sheridan claimed Fancy was very angry growing up, comparing her anger
to Alistair's. Paloma wonders if she has a brain tumor? She read that they cause
mood swings like this. Luis says Fancy is hardly speaking to him, he doubts
she'd let him take her to the hospital to be examined. He hopes it's not a
tumor, but wonders if he ever really knew Fancy. He changes the subject to her
and Miguel and their weddings. Paloma hates that they are so happy when he and
Theresa aren't, but Luis is happy for them. Paloma tells him that they are all
planning double weddings. Luis is happy for them, and says Noah is a good guy
and is crazy about her. Paloma admits at one time she was worried he wasn't over
Fancy, but now she knows that he'd never cheat on her.
On the docks, Pretty uses the remote to make Fancy go into
seduction mode. Fancy grabs Noah and kisses him. He asks what is wrong with her?
She tells him not to be such a prude. He wonders when she became such a slut! He
tells her that he's with Paloma, he's engaged to marry her. Fancy says so what,
she's supposed to be engaged to Luis. She says that doesn't mean they can't be
together on the side. Noah says it does. Fancy wants him to make love to her,
reminding him how she called him her marathon man. She kisses him, but he keeps
saying stop. She says his body doesn't seem to want her to stop. He says he's a
guy, things pop up like that! As she continues to kiss him, Pretty gets the idea
to call Luis so he can see this. She thinks Luis will hate Fancy and she'll be
one step closer to making Luis hers.
Luis and Paloma show up at the docks. Pretty called Luis and
told him that Fancy was down here yelling and screaming at some venders. They
are stunned to find Fancy kissing Noah. Paloma screams at Noah, asking him how
could he do this! He says he can explain. Luis hopes so, he's two timing his
sister. Paloma won't listen to any more of his explanations and runs off, Noah
follows her. Pretty meanwhile loses the knob to the control, so Fancy snaps out
of it. Luis wants an explanation, but Fancy hardly remembers coming here let
alone kissing Noah. Pretty finds the knob, and turns Fancy back on. Fancy then
tells Luis he's so hot and kisses him. He asks what is wrong with her, first
Noah and now him? She says Noah is not here, he is. Pretty then makes Fancy
angry, so she lashes out at him. She says she's caught him with Sheridan a
million times, what is the big deal? He asks if this is her idea of revenge? She
says maybe, and she will be with Noah or whomever she wants whenever she wants!
She then storms off. Meanwhile Noah tries to explain to Paloma, he claims Fancy
came on to him. She thinks his excuse is crap and says she never wants to see
him again! She then storms off.
At the mansion, Ethan is talking with Esme and Viki. He explains
that Esme wants to adopt Viki, if that is okay with her. Viki loves the idea.
Esme flirts with Ethan as he's working, which Viki doesn't like. Ethan gets up
when he gets a call, it's about Theresa. He's trying to track her down. Esme
talks to Viki saying she did have a thing for Julian, but it was more about his
money and sex. Viki thinks this is gross and she doesn't need to hear it. Esme
says Ethan however, he is smart and a sex machine. She thinks he'd make a great
husband. Viki has a fantasy in which Ethan and Esme plan to marry and send her
off to Switzerland for boarding school. She says she doesn't want to go, but
Esme says what Ethan wants he gets. Ethan says they really need to be able to
have a lot of sex wherever they want without worrying someone might hear them.
Ethan laughs and Viki imagines him dressed as an old villain from the silent
films. She says he must die! Meanwhile back in the real world, Ethan still has
no news on Theresa. Esme continues flirting with him, offering to take him out
to dinner. He says it's not necessary. She doesn't blame him, all her dates do
end up dead. However she thinks he could break that curse, he's already survived
poison twice. Ethan still says thanks but no.
In the foyer, Gwen and Rebecca talk about Theresa and how Gwen
has won. Gwen says she still feels what they did to Theresa is awful, she's won
but lost part of her soul. Rebecca says Theresa got what she deserved. Gwen is
just glad they didn't have to follow through on their threat. She says if
Juanita found Pilar, it would be a bloodbath. Gwen says she doesn't want
anything bad to happen to Pilar or her family. Later Rebecca sees Esme flirting
with Ethan. She thinks Esme is trying to steal Ethan! Gwen doubts that, Ethan is
just helping her get custody of Viki. Rebecca knows seduction when she sees it,
and she talk about how she hears Esme's bed has so many notches carved into the
bedpost. Gwen thinks her mom is jealous of Esme, maybe the fact that she's
younger? Rebecca says nonsense.
Rebecca and Gwen go into the living room, where Rebecca
interrupts Esme and Ethan by butting between them. The two women trade snipes.
Esme decides to send Viki up to bed, so Viki leaves. Rebecca then asks Ethan if
he's heard from Theresa? He says no. Rebecca thinks she's probably at "Club
Bed" with her new lover pounding the sand. Ethan says that's enough, he
doesn't want to hear this. Rebecca tells Ethan he deserves a real woman, one
with no secrets and who doesn't lie. Esme thinks that will be here! Meanwhile
Viki spies on them with a knife. Later Ethan goes back to the living room, after
they left, to get some papers. Viki decides it's time for Ethan to take a dirt
nap. She stabs through the curtain. We hear someone fall to the floor, Viki's
knife has blood on it!
Down in Mexico, Theresa apologizes to her mom for not listening
and leading them all into Juanita's hands. Theresa then breaks out into a song
about her love for Ethan, complete with flashbacks of them. Pilar tells Theresa,
after her song, that this is her fault. Theresa says no, she was raped, she was
Juanita and Carlos' victims. She asks her mom why she didn't tell her the whole
story? Pilar says she was ashamed, and back then times and the law was
different. Pilar feels so ashamed. Theresa asks if she told anyone what
happened? Pilar says Ivy and Father Lonigan both know and kept her secret. Pilar
just can't believe how one night, the events of that one night changed Juanita
so much. Theresa feels hopeful the rest of their family will be safe, Juanita
doesn't know where they are still. Pilar thinks she'll find a clue, she'll find
them. Theresa and Pilar both hope that they'll be saved by Pilar's letter to
Luis. Theresa worries though, it's so quiet, what if the letter didn't get
there? Theresa says there must be a way out, what if they could figure out
Juanita's code? Pilar says most people use their birthdays. Pilar then knows the
code, it's today's date, the anniversary of her husband and children's deaths.
Theresa tells her mom to try. She says they have one shot, if it doesn't work,
well they are no worse off than they are. Pilar tries and it works! They are
freed and run from Juanita's estate, but it appears someone is following them.
January 30, 2008
In Mexico, Pilar and Theresa are running through town. Someone is following
them, and Pilar feels this. Theresa thinks if they were being followed then they
would have made a move by now. Theresa and Pilar soon realize they are
being followed, so they hide. They end up cornered and have to run for it, after
knocking crates over on whomever is following them. They keep running. Pilar
thinks Juanita has the airport and bus stations covered, they can't escape.
Theresa says they can via the ocean, they just need a boat. She says they'll
take a boat to the shipping lanes and flag down a tanker. Pilar asks where
they'll get a boat? Theresa says the wharf. They make it to the wharf and look
for a boat. They find one, but it's not working as the motor is broken. Suddenly
a boat appears on the water and puts a spotlight on them.
Back at Juanita's, Juanita comes to check on Pilar and Theresa
and finds they have escaped. Juanita has her hit man find them and bring them
back, dead or alive. Juanita says her justice may be delayed, but not denied.
The hit man gets a call, one of his men has them in sight. Juanita ends up
looking at a bunch of knives and stuff and says she will torture them before she
kills them. Unfortunately the hit man says Theresa and Pilar got away. Juanita
says she'll kill his man for failing, but first she'll find Theresa and Pilar
and kill them herself. Juanita and the hit man hit the streets to look for them.
Later Juanita asks her hit man how his men could have lost them? He says the
same way they escaped from her? She shoots at his feet, saying his next remark
will cost him his life. Juanita then gets a call that her men have caught
Theresa and Pilar. Juanita wants Theresa dead and Pilar brought to her.
At Tabitha's, Miguel and Kay talk to Tabitha, who is stuffing
her face with chocolate cake and pudding. Miguel is gloating that they are
making out fine without magic, but Tabitha says one day he'll need magic to help
them. Miguel doesn't think so, but Tabitha says he'll eat his words. Kay says
speaking of eating, what is with the chocolate. Tabitha says she is stressed
over the letter Miguel wrote and her inability to use magic, so she's using
chocolate to calm her nerves. Suddenly Paloma rushes in crying that Noah broke
her heart! Paloma goes to make some tea to calm down. Miguel and Kay ask Tabitha
if she did this? Tabitha says no she did not. Miguel doesn't believe her, but
Kay does. Noah then shows up looking for Paloma, and Luis shows up looking for
Noah. Tabitha wonders if anyone knocks anymore. Luis asks Noah about why he was
kissing Fancy? Noah says Fancy kissed him. Luis asks why he let it happen? Noah
says Fancy came on to him. Luis says he disrespected his sister. Paloma walks in
and drops her tea when she sees Noah. Paloma says he has some nerve, she told
him to leave her alone. Noah swears Fancy came onto him, he couldn't fend her
off, it was like she was possessed. Luis wants Noah to admit he took advantage
of Fancy. Paloma says no, Fancy was the aggressor. Kay asks Tabitha if she
didn't have anything to do with this? Tabitha says mortals screw their own lives
up without her. Noah tells Luis to get out of his face, maybe Fancy came onto
him because she's tired of finding him with Sheridan. Noah says Luis admits
Fancy has been acting strange, he could have made it worse if he went off on
her. Luis says oh so you were being noble? Paloma says give me a break. Noah
begs Paloma for another chance. Tabitha meanwhile is upset that she can't use
magic, so she keeps stuffing her face with chocolate. Kay and Miguel want some
too as they can't take the fighting. Tabitha however won't share her chocolate!
Kay ends up coming to Noah's defense, but Miguel still wonders if Tabitha had
anything to do with this. Tabitha swears she didn't. She says mortals don't need
her help to screw up their love lives. Tabitha says she could just fix this all,
she could make them all happy again. Kay tells Miguel to let her do it. Miguel
says no, magic disturbs the natural order of things. Tabitha says magic is part
of the natural order of things. Miguel tells Tabitha that he likes her, but as a
catholic he has to stop witchcraft. Tabitha thinks to herself that Miguel is
smug for someone about to lose his mom and sister to w witch in Mexico.
At the mansion, Esme, Gwen and Rebecca find Ethan out cold on
the floor. Gwen says he's dead! Esme says the attacker struck again. Viki is
thrilled and says and they live happily ever after. However it turns out that
this is just a fantasy of Viki's. Viki soon hears Ethan's voice, she wonders who
she stabbed? Gwen sees Rebecca lying on the ground, she says it looks like her
mother was stabbed! Viki, behind the curtain, says Oops! It seems there are
drapes and stuff all over the mansion as it's being repainted. Rebecca is alive,
Gwen asks what happened to her. Rebecca says she was penetrated by a large hard
shaft of steel, and not in a good way! Esme thinks the attacker must be here.
Ethan calls 911. Rebecca says call the dry cleaner too as her clothes have blood
on them. Sam suddenly shows up with Julian, they learn Rebecca was stabbed.
Rebecca tells Sam to come close so she can give her statement, and pulls him
into a kiss. Sam says he thinks she'll live. Sam asks what happened? Gwen says
her mother came in here to get a drink, someone stabbed her. Sam thinks whoever
stabbed Rebecca could still be here. Ethan asks his dad why he's here? Sam was
questioning Julian about the attacker. He has Crane Security lock down the
estate and patrol the border. He then makes a call to the station to get all
personnel here, the killer may have struck again. Gwen asks her mom if she
can get her anything. Rebecca says a drink would help dull the pain. Meanwhile
Julian asks why the killer would attack Rebecca. Esme says till tonight they've
only targeted people she dated or slept with. Sam and Julian wonder if Esme
slept with Rebecca! Esme and Rebecca are shocked by this accusation. Rebecca
says absolutely not, but Esme does have nice lips. Esme says and she does like
her red hair. Rebecca says it's fiery just like her. Gwen says enough, it's bad
enough that daddy is a cross dresser! Rebecca says she's lost a lot of blood and
isn't thinking straight! Rebecca swears they haven't slept together. Esme adds
not yet! Sam says maybe the attacker changed their MO. As Viki tries to run, she
knocks over a paint can. Everyone hears this and thinks the attacker is still
here! Sam hears the person run upstairs, so Sam and Julian follow him. Esme
worries, Viki is upstairs. She runs upstairs too.
Meanwhile Gwen tells her mother the paramedics are here. Rebecca
says if they are cute and she suddenly needs mouth to mouth, just go with it.
Gwen asks if she doesn't care who stabbed her? Rebecca says she knows who
stabbed her, it was Theresa of course. Later Rebecca was only given a generic
sedative by the paramedics, she's disappointed. Ethan meanwhile gets some
mysterious call. Gwen asks what that was about? Ethan says he doesn't know, but
it was a call from Mexico/ He says Pilar and Theresa are about to be killed by
some woman named Juanita. Gwen is shocked, Rebecca says Juanita will kill them
both, it's hopeless. Ethan asks what they know about this? Rebecca says if
Alistair was a woman, he'd be Juanita Vasquez. Gwen tells her mom to stop, she's
upsetting Ethan. Ethan is already upset, how does Rebecca know so much and why
is Gwen trying to stop her from speaking? Gwen claims her mom is just out of it,
she was surfing the net one night and learned about Juanita, who is the head of
the Mexican mob. Gwen says so if they are in Mexico and came in contact with
Juanita, well they are in danger. Ethan asks why they'd be there? Gwen says
maybe to visit Pilar's sister? Ethan says he'll get to the bottom of this. Ethan
calls Pilar and Theresa, all he gets is their voicemails. Ethan asks why this
woman would want to kill them? Gwen doesn't know. Ethan says then he has to go
Mexico. Gwen asks her mom how Juanita found out about Pilar and Theresa? She
thought she took care of this. Rebecca says Juanita may not have got all her
messages. Gwen fears if Ethan goes to Mexico he may learn the truth and she'll
never get him back. Gwen tries to convince Ethan he can't go to Mexico alone. He
says she's right, he'll get Miguel and Luis to go as well.
Upstairs, Sam and Julian begin searching the rooms one by one.
Viki returns to her room and thinks she better pretend to be asleep, she just
hopes she gets another chance to kill Ethan. Esme later shows up to check on
Viki. Viki pretends to be scared by the sirens and asked what happened. Esme
says Gwen's mother got cut and passed out, but will be okay. Viki is glad, she
doesn't want to kill people she doesn't have to, that is just wrong. Meanwhile
Sam and Julian find a trail of blood in the hall that leads to Viki's room.
The trail of blood leads to a door to the terrace that is open in Viki's room.
Esme says this is just like when Fox was shot. Esme asks if Viki saw the
attacker? She claims she did. Sam asks if she can describe them? Viki says she
woke up when she heard foot steps. She says she saw the glint of something
shiny, she thought it was a knife. She says she closed her eyes and pretended to
be asleep, it worked and they left. Sam and Julian have not heard Viki talk and
are shocked. Viki says she was starting to feel comfortable here. Esme says
don't let this clam her up again. Sam asks if it was a man or woman? Viki
doesn't know. Esme says don't push her. Viki tells herself if they push, she'll
push back. Sam thinks they must be out on the grounds, so he and Julian leave.
Esme gets a chill like the attacker is close by. Viki looks over at her pillow,
the knife is under it.
Back at Tabitha's, Noah and Luis are still arguing about Fancy
and Sheridan. Luis says he and Sheridan were looking for Marty. Noah says it
didn't look like that to Fancy, just like what they saw between him and
Fancy wasn't what it looked like. Luis admits Fancy was acting odd after they
left. Paloma says she still can't look the other way again. They fights
continue. Noah tells Luis maybe Fancy came on to him because Luis isn't giving
her something she needs. Kay tries to break it up. She tells Noah he doesn't
mean that. Noah does, Luis needs to take a good look himself in the mirror. Luis
says he's going to kill Noah! Miguel stops them from beating each other up.
Paloma says she can't deal with this anymore and leaves to start her shift.
Ethan calls up Tabitha's to find Luis. Tabitha answers and says
he is here, Miguel is trying to stop Luis from killing Noah. She asks him to
hold on. Tabitha knows why Ethan is calling, this should get everyone's
attention. Tabitha tells Luis that Ethan is on the phone, something about
Theresa and Pilar being marked for death in Mexico. Luis talks to Ethan. He also
calls the station and asks to see if his mother and sister flew to Mexico. He
learns they did. Ethan says he's taking the next flight to Mexico, he loves her
too much to let anything happen to her. Luis says he and Miguel will join him.
Miguel thinks mama and Theresa need all the help they can get. Ethan says he'll
book the three of them on the next flight out, this Juanita is bad news. He
doesn't know how Juanita is connected to them though. Luis calls Paloma and
leaves her a message about going to Mexico with Miguel and Ethan, he wants her
to stay and look after Kay and Theresa's kids. Noah also calls and leaves Paloma
a voicemail, hoping they can work this out. Meanwhile Kay and Tabitha both tell
Miguel they can solve this with magic. Tabitha says his family is spinning out
of control without the help of magic. Miguel says no, it's not right. She says
if he's going to Mexico then promise her that he'll be careful. He says he will,
they hug. Tabitha again asks to let her use magic, but Miguel says no. He says
he'll bring them home on his own. Tabitha tells herself that he won't. Noah
offers to go too, but Luis says they don't need his help.
Back at the mansion, Gwen asks Ethan why he'd want to go save
Theresa after what she did to him. Ethan thinks this might explain why Theresa
has been acting so odd, and he loves her and has to save her. Gwen says he can't
put Theresa ahead of Jonathan, he needs him safe and sound. Ethan says he needs
to set a good example for Jonathan. He says he will be fine and he'll see her
soon. Ethan then leaves. Rebecca says Gwen better hope Theresa and Pilar are
dead, otherwise Ethan will find out the truth. Rebecca says they need to have
positive thoughts . . . . Theresa and Pilar are dead! She repeats this over and
over like a mantra.
