Rachel, Hank, Georgie, Bo and Nora
As Hank and Rachel leave R.J.'s room, Hank is happy that R.J. is making progress. Rachel is relieved too, but she hopes the progress won't send him straight to jail. Hank explains again that Bo plans to go easy on R.J., he doesn't understand Rachel's negative attitude toward Bo. Rachel starts telling Hank that Georgie is having an affair and the married guy she's seeing beat her up last night. Hank hopes she presses charges, but he still doesn't see what that has to do with Bo. Bo is the one Georgie is having the affair with, Rachel explains. Hank finds that very hard to believe, what kind of proof do you have? Georgie told me herself, Rachel begins, but they are interrupted by Nora's arrival. Bo arrives a few seconds later and Nora asks him to change his mind about taking Georgie's statement. The "poor kid is terrified", Nora tells him. Bo asks if it has occurred to anyone that Georgie may be lying.
Back at her apartment, Georgie is putting makeup on under her eyes to make the bruises appear much worse that then are. While she is doing this, she is listening to the tape she made the night before of Bo threatening her to leave town. Georgie turns off the tape and smiles.
Nora defends Georgie, how can Bo even say such a thing? Georgie's all bruised up and scared. Bo tries to suggest that Georgie might be making the situation more dramatic than it really is. Unfortunately, Bo's trying to make light of the whole topic of Georgie's attack makes him look even more guilty in Rachel's and Hank's eyes, like he's trying to cover something up. Bo tries again to point out that Georgie's always doing strange things, like buying the same dress as Nora, but Rachel isn't convinced. Bo thinks they shouldn't jump to conclusions, like everyone did in the case of R.J. Bo apologizes for bringing it up, then leaves to go back to work. Nora explains Bo's attitude by saying he's under a lot of pressure right now. Nora asks if Hank can go talk to Georgie about the situation. Rachel thinks it's an excellent idea and Hank reluctantly agrees. Nora goes to the nurses station to call Georgie. (She actually mentions not being able to use her cel phone in the hospital, a fact which is usually ignored) Hank says to Rachel that he'll go and talk to Georgie and hopefully get everything cleared up.
Nora calls Georgie and asks how she's going. "I'm OK, really", Georgie tells her in a pitiful voice. Nora explains that Hank will be coming over to talk to her. Georgie pretends to object, but Nora won't take no for an answer.
Hank and Rachel arrive at her apartment to see Georgie. Rachel quietly tells Hank about seeing Georgie and Bo together at the Logan's department store and how Georgie asked Bo to unzip her dress. That doesn't mean anything, Hank says, Georgie could be the one chasing Bo. Then Rachel shows Hank the card from the flowers that says "To Georgie, You're the best, Love Bo." Hanks admits it does look pretty bad, but nothing proves what Georgie says is true. Georgie, with a suitcase in her hand, interrupts their discussion and begs them not to fight about her, she can't take it. When Rachel asks where she is going, Georgie tells them that Nora asked her to come stay with herself and Bo for a few days. "You're going to stay with my mother and Bo?, Rachel asks", shocked.
Rachel doesn't think it's a good idea for Georgie to go there, under the circumstances. Nora insisted, Georgie tells her, as if that's a good reason why she has to go. Rachel gives up, she does not understand Georgie at all. "You're on your own", Rachel tells Georgie and walks away. Hank wants Georgie to tell him what happened to her. I will, she promises, but asks him for a ride to Bo and Nora's house first. Hank agrees and they leave.
Outside of Bo and Nora's, Hank comments that she was very quiet in the car on the way over, was she thinking of last night, he asks. Does anyone ever get over their first love, Georgie asks him in return. Is she talking about the guy that beat her up, Hank wonders. No, her first love was her father, Georgie tells him, she used to think he was perfect. She used to tell him when she was very little that she would never, ever marry anyone else. Of course, she didn't know at the time that she was right and would end up an old maid. You're far from an old maid, Hank tells her kindly, don't worry, the right guy will come along. He already has, but he won't marry me, Georgie says sadly. Hank tells her that she can say anything to him, he's the D.A. and she can trust him. It's Bo, Georgie finally admits. Hank tells her that he knows Bo just about as well as anyone and he finds it hard to believe that that is the truth. He didn't mean to hurt her, Georgie claims, but after Clint and Viki saw them together the night of the poker game Bo got very angry and lost it. Georgie doesn't blame him, they never meant for this to happen, it all got so complicated. Just then, Nora opens the door saying she thought she heard voices and tells them to come inside.
At his office at the police station, Bo gets the good news from Asa that he's found a job for Georgie in Seattle. The sooner Georgie is gone, the sooner my troubles will be over, Bo says.
Nora tells Georgie she's so glad she's here. Are you sure I'm not imposing, Georgie asks, and thanks Nora for everything she's doing. Nora sends Georgie upstairs to unpack. Hank asks Nora if she asked Bo about Georgie moving in, he's not sure how Bo's going to react. Nora insists that Bo will be fine. Bo arrives home and is most definitely not fine to find out that Georgie has moved in. "You did *what*?", he asks.
Nora and R.J.
Nora goes in to see R.J. He tells her to go away, but she refuses to leave and sits down by his bed. She wants to get the truth from him, he took a bullet to save the kids and he's apparently been looking for them since they were kidnapped. Why, R.J., she asks him. R.J. claims he only did it to save himself. Nora agrees that might be part of it. R.J. tells her that she's deluding herself, that he's not the good-hearted but troubled guy she seems to think that his is. That's Nora's problem, he tells her, she's too trusting, believing in people that don't deserve it.
Trusting me almost ruined your marriage, R.J. says, and I felt like scum every time Bo accused me of the kidnapping and one of you defended me. You trust too much, R.J. says again. Nora allows that that might be true, but she's never seen that as a character flaw. Bo taught me how to trust, she continues, and when you love someone, you let them in. Did you order the kidnapping, she asks R.J. No, R.J. finally says. Then I wasn't wrong about you, was I, Nora says, reaching out to touch R.J.'s hand. "I'm sorry for all of it, I'm so sorry", R.J. tells her. After Nora leaves, R.J. re-reads the letter that Jacara sent to him.
Dorian and Kelly
Dorian can't sleep, so she disturbs Kelly, who's trying to listen to a tape of whale songs. Dorian's really worried about her, she should be listening to some real music, something with a beat. Dorian's tried everything, meditation, counting sheep, watching infomercials, but nothing helps. She asks Kelly for a sleeping pill, but Kelly doesn't like to take them. I've only had a few hours of sleep a night for the last few weeks, Dorian complains. How can I be so exhausted and still not sleep? Kelly tries to get Dorian to admit that the real cause of her insomnia is Mel, but Dorian insists that she's over Mel. Kelly doesn't believe her. Dorian can make a conscious effort to not think about Mel while she's awake, but she can't help thinking about him while she's asleep. That's why she won't go to sleep, Kelly tells her, Dorian's in denial. Dorian tells her that Mel and anything to do with Mel are banished from the house. After thinking about it for a moment, Dorian finally figures out what she can do to get some sleep.
Dorian tries calling the doctor, but he won't see her this late at night and wants to schedule an appointment for her tomorrow. Tomorrow is too late, Dorian says, hanging up the phone. Don't doctors make house calls anymore, she says, I used to make house calls when I was a doctor. Of course, that's how I met Victor Lord, she remembers. Maybe house calls aren't such a good idea, she decides. Then Dorian has another idea. After having Kelly put her earphones back on to be sure she doesn't overhear, Dorian calls Bik and asks him to forge a prescription. Bik refuses, forging a prescription is what landed him in jail last time. Dorian slams the phone down in frustration. How will she ever get to sleep, she wonders. She glances over at the couch, where Kelly is already fast asleep.
Téa, Todd and Ramon,the bodega owner
Téa is shopping in a bodega for some "comida tradicional", traditional food, to make for dinner. She hasn't seen Ramon since she lived with Carlotta and he says he missed seeing her. She misses the old neighborhood too, she tells him. He asks if she is cooking this for her husband, but she replies that To
dd doesn't like Spanish food, "spicy things make him nervous". Ramon suddenly sees a suspicious looking person come in and warns Téa to stay down, there have been a lot of bodega robberies lately. Ramon confronts the man and tells him to drop it, but when he turns around it's Todd holding a tube of Chapstick. "I don't want my lips to get chapped", Todd says calmly as he puts some on. Téa just shakes her head in disbelief.
"What's the matter with you, you almost gave us a heart attack!", Téa yells at him. "Me? I did? He almost clobbered me for using lip balm", Todd replies. Ramon says something to Todd in Spanish (all I could understand was "la cabeza", the head). "Same to you", Todd tells him, not understanding a word Ramon said. Téa asks what Todd is doing there, he claims he was bored so he followed her. Ramon and Téa get into a rather long discussion in Spanish and I think that Ramon asked Téa why she married this man and she replied "por el dinero" - for the money. Todd, paranoid that they are talking about him, which I think they were, tells them to stop all this "salsa speak", he can't understand them. Téa suggests that if he's that interested he should take a foreign language course, "then you can monitor my every word". Todd asks her what she's doing there, anyway. Téa explains she had an urge to get back to her roots and plans to make a Spanish dinner. Then hurry up, I'm hungry he tells her. Téa is surprised Todd likes Spanish food. She then says something else in Spanish to Ramon. What did you say, Todd asks. "I told him you were following me to check if I went to see Andrew, but you didn't have the guts to admit it", Téa replies. Outside, someone watches them through the front window.
Todd admits that he didn't follow her because he was bored, he wanted to spend time with her. This is supposed to be a trial reconciliation, how can they get back together when she keeps running out, he asks. I just went to go food shopping, Téa points out. Téa sarcastically asks if he wants her to wear an ankle bracelet so he can track her. You would wear one, Todd asks, because I have one at home, it's a little broken... It's not funny, Todd, she tells him, smacking him on the arm. Todd obviously thinks it's funny because he smiles a little bit. I moved back in to speed up the divorce, she reminds him. "Why would I reconcile with a man so paranoid that he spies on me?" While they are talking, Todd glances down and notices the necklace and charm that Téa is wearing. Engraved on the charm is the letter "A". "A" for Andrew, Todd says before storming out, giving Téa no chance to explain. On the way out the door, he bumps into the man who has been lurking outside. The man hides his face as Téa comes out the door and follows Todd.
Téa finds Todd down by the river, staring into the water. She reaches out and touches him on the arm, but he moves away and walks to another spot along the dock. Téa follows him again and explains that the "A" stands for Anna, the necklace was her mother's. Her father kept it and when he learned that she died, he gave it to Téa, who was about 7 years old at the time. It's the only thing she has left of her mother. "Sorry", Todd apologizes and Téa gives it to him to look at. As Todd is returning it to her, it slips through both of their fingers and falls into the river. Todd takes everything out of his pockets, takes off his coat and jumps into the river to find the locket, despite Téa's protests. "It's not worth it, Todd", she yells after him as he jumps into the water.
Dorian, wearing a hat and sunglasses despite the fact that it is night, enters the bodega. The man who was watching Todd and Téa from the window before is sitting on a bench outside, taking a drink from a bottle when Dorian passes him. Inside, Dorian tries to convince Ramon to give her sleeping pills without a prescription. Ramon tells her that the bodega is not a pharmacy. Dorian tries to give him money to give her something, insulting Ramon by insinuating that he is a drug dealer. He tells her to take the over the counter medicine or to get out. Dorian backs down and goes to the shelf to get it. Two men enter the bodega, grab some things off the shelf and approach the counter. Dorian tries to push her way forward, saying she was there first, but gives up and takes her place in line behind them. The men are complaining about the price of what they are buying, while Dorian asks them to please hurry up. Ramon looks down and sees that one of the men is holding a gun.
Dorian, not noticing the gun, again complains for them to hurry up. The wino from outside enters the store and starts asking where the jelly beans are. He manages to get himself between Dorian and the men, apparently to protect her, but Dorian complains that she's not going to let him cut in line, too.
The man shoves her toward the door and tells her to get out of there, but of course Dorian doesn't go. He grabs the shoulder of one of the men and turns him around, and ends up with a gun pointed at both himself and Dorian. Too late, Dorian notices the gun. The mans shoots, hitting Dorian, who falls to the floor.
