KELLY TELLS DREW "I THINK I LOVE YOU!". REV UP THE PSCHYADELIC BUS.
KELLY IS THE NEW LAURIE PARTRIDGE (NOT)
Kelly and Drew are sunbathing by Dorian's Pool. She is wearing a
beautiful bikini. He discusses the trial with her. Kelly is certain
that it will never come to that and remains positive that the glass is
half full, not half empty. Drew says it is overflowing for him. Kelly
chooses this moment to say "I think I love you" (Quick, get Dorian back
as Mrs. Partridge, Mel as the manager, Joey as the irksome Danny, Drew
as Keith, and Starr and River as the kids with the tambourines. I see a
multi million dollar deal in their future. Next stop Club Indigo!) No,
she amends, she is sure she love him. Although Drew still insists he
killed Georgie, Kelly does not believe him. She can see his soul in his
eyes. He may be guilty of other things, but not of murder. He is only
protecting his dad. It is all in his eyes: his bravery, his gentleness,
his kindness. His are not the eyes of a killer!
Kelly says that the one thing she learned the past year is that the
future you think may happen may never come. Ian died, Joey left, a lot
happened. But Drew is with her this moment and if feels good to have him
with her on this beautiful day. Drew worries about the pain he has
caused her, but Kelly philosophizes that pain and joy are the same
thing. "Pain is like the water that runs against the rock until it
forms like a bowl and it can accept the water of joy. The more pain,
the deeper the bowl, the more joy.". If she didn't go through the pain
with him, she would not feel the joy she feels with him now. They start
to kiss passionately.
The Palace- Asa, Bo, Lindsay, Sam, Nora
Asa is willing to go to jail before he allows his grandson to be put
away for life. Drew needs a tough criminal attorney. Nora and Sam bailed
on him. Bo says that is not so. Asa rants on about Nora and Sam, Viki
holding Kevin back from going after Todd. His sons can't seem to control
At another table, Sam gives Lindsay some flowers. He did not buy them,
he just picked them up from the vase. She teasingly accepts them for
her birthday, but she is just kidding. It may not be her birthday but
their 18th anniversary is coming up if they count the years since the
divorce. What would Sam like as a present?
Sam says he just wants a truce and she holds up a napkin like a white
flag. The kids are moving further away from her just like he did. First
out of bed, then out of her house, then out of Chicago. Sam says he
can't help being in Llanview, something is always going on. Right now
it is Todd and Sam is his only friend. Lindsay asks if it is his turn
to watch Todd. She wonders if it would have been better if she was his
friend. But then friends don't get alimony!. Sam counters that maybe
when the checks stop, they will have a chance for a relationship.
Lindsay says he is being cute. Sam accuses her of establishing a beach
head in Llanview because if she is not Mrs. Sam Rappaport and if she is
not a mother, then she does not know who she is. Lindsay replies that he
has a colossal ego and denies that she does not have her own identity.
Sam advises her to swim to shore and rediscover herself. If they don't
have to renegotiate about the kids, there is not a lot for them to
discuss. Lindsay remarks that once she is out of the picture, just what
is Sam going to do about all those Buchanans.
Nora walks by and Lindsay tells her what a coincidence it is that she
and Sam were just talking about her. She catches the looks between Nora
and her ex and comments how amazing it is how much they can say to each
other without a word. Lindsay reminds her that her husband Bo is right
over there at the other table. How is he doing with his son accused of
murder? Sam tells Lindsay to let Nora go and see for herself. Again
more looks are passed between the two former lovers and Lindsay does not
miss a beat. They have an entire vocabulary of looks! Sam offers Nora
any assistance she might need with Drew and she thanks and heads toward
Lindsay stares knowingly at Sam and tells him that it is obvious he
can't keep his eyes off Nora. Sam counters that Nora is going through
hell. A jealous Lindsay remarks that it is too bad she didn't have an
assistant who was murdered. Then she would get Sam's attention. She
then grills him about his love life. He tells her he had a date with a
very nice lady and he will be seeing her again soon, in fact tonight.
She accuses him of being transparent and suggest he might want to
actually buy this lady some flowers instead of stealing them. Where will
he be? Should she tell Nora if she asks?
Meanwhile, Bo tells his father to lay off Nora and Viki. Asa says he has
no use for Viki, but they need Nora and her slick Chicago boyfriend to
defend Drew. Bo warns him he is asking for it. Asa is just issuing a
wake up call. Bo replies he and Nora are working things out. "By hiding
in my place", Asa says smugly. Bo explains that he and Nora were
heading home last night when Nora discovered her daughter needed help.
All Asa wants to know is why Nora is not there with Bo right now!
As if on cue, Nora arrives and Asa asks what Sam had to say to her.
Nora feigns astonishment that Asa did not have the table bugged. She
and Bo catch up on the doings of their children. Drew is at Dorian's
with Kelly. Hank is with Rachel. Bo asks what she would like to order.
She looks at Asa and sarcastically replies, Iced Coffee, hold the
arsenic. In fact she is just about ready to leave and questions Bo
whether she interrupted some family pow-wow. Bo says she is family and
Asa mutters "Oh right!"
Dorian's House- Cassie, Starr, River and Blair
River and Starr are getting ready for their graduation from
kindergarten. Dorian is not going to be able to make it because she had
a snafu in travel plans. Starr asks Blair where her Daddy is and Blair
says he will be coming later. Starr asks if Todd will be at the
graduation. Blair replies that she knows her Daddy would not want to
miss it. Starr is certain that her father will be there. Cassie and
Blair tell the children that Ming has cookies for them in the kitchen
and then sit down for a private conversation of Todd's whereabouts.
Blair can't help but worry about Starr and the possibility her father is
guilty of killing Georgie. Cassie replies that Kevin seems to think so
and he also believes that Viki is protecting her brother. Blair wonders
why Todd would just drop Starr off with her. Cassie says that he knows
that Starr is better off with her mother. Blair says that Todd really
loves Starr. Even after all he has done, he would not let his daughter
suffer for those things. Why wouldn't he show up for the graduation
knowing how important it is to Starr. Cassie replies that Todd would not
want the police to arrest him in front of his daughter. Blair admits she
used to fantasize about having her little girl all to herself. Cassie
blames that on Dorian's influence.
But now, Blair continues, she realizes the importance of having a
father. She remembers back in school when they studied family groups she
had to leave the name of her father blank. And still to this day when
she applies for a passport, she cannot fill in the information. Cassie
is not so sure Starr knows the real Todd. Blair disagrees. Starr knows
a part of him none of them will ever know. The other day she was
reading Starr a Bible story and there was a picture of a dove with the
caption God is love. Starr looked at her mother and said that Daddy's
love too. They wonder if Todd could have killed Georgie?
Llanfair- Todd, Viki and Kevin
Todd is holding a knife to Viki's neck. He is very hyper and he shouts
for Kevin and Viki to shut up so he can make up his mind about his next
move. Viki tries to reason with him about letting the police question
him. She tells him she believes in his innocence. Kevin demands Todd
to let his mother go. Todd says this was not part of the plan. Kevin
asks just what was his plan. "DAMN!", Todd swears. He hesitates a beat
and then continues, "Fine, you're part of my little plan now, Wonder
Boy. We're all going for a little ride". He tells Kevin that they must
keep moving, but he will not tell them where they are going. He orders
Kevin to drive and at first Kevin refuses. Viki says Todd is her
brother, he won't hurt her, do as he says. Todd tells him he is starting
to feel really ugly and Kevin finally complies. With Kevin out the
door, Todd's face relaxes and he removes the knife from his sister's
throat. He looks confused. Viki again asks where he is taking them?
Todd replies that they are going to talk to a killer.
THEY ARRIVE AT THE LODGE
Kevin is needling Todd about how the killer always comes back to the
scene of the crime. Todd tells Viki he did not plan on having Kevin
along. Kevin asks if Todd would like to get rid of him like he did
Georgie. Does he feel the noose tightening around his neck. Is that why
he has to take all of them down with him?
Todd calmly tells Viki that he is sorry but now he is going to have to
kill Kevin. She stands between them. If Todd does that, there will be
no way out for him. Todd insists he is already there. Viki pleads that
the knife is really making her nervous. She can't listen with an open
mind. Todd sincerely doubts anyone has an open mind about him. Has Viki
read her newspaper lately. Viki tells him he should tell them what
happened that night. Kevin sarcastically adds that he can't wait to
hear it. Viki reminds Kevin of how he felt trapped and desperate when
Marty accused him of rape and says that is how Todd feels now. Kevin
replies,"Don't forget who raped her to begin with- your precious baby
brother." Viki remarks that Kevin until recently thought Drew as guilty
of Georgie's murder and then it was Todd he saw as the culprit. He has
to stop letting his emotions rule him. He must start thinking like a
newsman. This could be a real scoop for him. No one has heard Todd's
side of the story. OK fine what happened, Kevin asks Todd
unenthusiastically. Todd smirks and says he does not think he will tell
him now. Again, Viki tries to use reason. She explains to her brother
that people accuse her of being biased in Todd's favor but no one could
accuse Kevin of that. That makes her son the ideal person for Todd to
Viki tries to get him on track about what happened the night of the
murder. She prompts him to remember Bo's birthday party at the Palace.
Todd says Viki gave him that dumb ring of her ancestors. Viki says yes,
it was the night he proposed to Téa and she was beaming. Todd
contradicts her, she wasn't beaming, she was crying. What kind of
person cries when they are happy? Viki replies that would be someone
who loves you very much. She tells Todd that Téa is as stubborn as he is
and thankfully so since she refuses to let him push her away. Starr and
Téa are his future. He always thought he was alone and that he had to
fight his battle alone, but he is not alone, when is that going to sink
Kevin has been watching carefully for just the right moment and when he
sees that Todd has relaxed his grip on the knife and that it is dangling
loosely by his side, Kevin grabs Todd and they battle for possession of
it. Todd is stabbed but holds the bloody knife in his hands and lets
out a sickly laugh, glaring at Kevin ominously.
The Palace-Nora and Lindsay
Lindsay meets up with Nora in the ladies room and accuses her of ruining
her marriage. Nora denies this since she and Sam were long over before
he married LIndsay and in fact until he came to Llanview, she had not
seen or heard from him in years. Lindsay says maybe if they had seen
each other, Nora would not have been such an icon to Sam right now. She
tells Nora she could compete with flesh and blood, but in this case Sam
had built a shrine to Nora chock full of emotional memories not leaving
a lot of room for Lindsay. Nora replies that it is easier to blame her
than for Lindsay to take responsibility for her own failed marriage.
Lindsay says that she knows she had some responsibility for the divorce
but that was because she could not accept what was left of him. She is
not good at sharing when she has to come up short. Nora replies that
Lindsay will soon be back in the swim of things. She will find another
guy. Lindsay comments that Nora and Sam even use the same imagery. Nora
tells her to get a life. "Tell Sam that", Lindsay replies, "He is in
limbo. He needs to move on so I can. I want you to set him free". "I
already have", Nora tells her and walks out of the bathroom, Lindsay
closely following her, making it clear that she is not about to go back
to Chicago. Lindsay will be staying in Llanview.
The Lodge- Viki, Todd and Kevin
Viki wants Todd to call for help. He is sure that this is just another
move to distract him. Viki is concerned he may have cut an artery and he
could bleed to death. Todd replies that would make everybody happy.
Viki wonders why Todd cannot accept that she cares about him. Todd's
only concern right now is that everyone who was at the lodge that night
be called. He wants Drew, Bo, Nora, Hank, Rachel, Asa and Clint there
pronto. Viki reminds him that Clint has an alibi. He was at the Palace
bar with Sam and that was confirmed by the bar tender. "Never liked
Clint anyway", Todd says. Kevin can see that Todd is gathering all the
suspects. Viki begs for him to let the police investigate. Todd will
have none of that- "Bo and Drew are cops, Hank is the DA. We are going
to do it my way". He orders Viki to make the calls but she says no.
Kevin says he will do it. Todd says that this will be a hell of a story
for him. But he warns his nephew, "No funny business cause I would like
to stick you and your whole stinking clan".
Back at the Palace....
Bo receives a call from Kevin that Drew needs help and to get to the
lodge right away
Kelly and Drew's lovemaking is interrupted. Kevin tells Drew to come to
the lodge and not tell Kelly where he is going. Drew asks her to trust
him and she says she will but is puzzled by this mysterious departure.
At the Lodge....
Todd refuses to take off his jacket and won't let Viki look at his
wound. What will he do if the suspects come and he passes out, Viki
asks him. He needs medical attention. Kevin says that what Todd really
needs is medicine for the head. Todd tells him to shut up and that he
does not want any doctors. He wants Nurse Barbara, he smirks, "She'll
do anything for you Kevin"
Dorian's- Blair, Sam, Cassie, Kelly
Sam came with flowers for Blair, but something tells him to say they are
for Starr. Blair says she has not heard from Todd. She invites him to
the graduation, but Sam feels this is a family thing. Blair reminds him
that Todd considers him family. And that if he shows up, he may need
Sam to deal with his legal problem. Sam is curious just what she feels
for the father of her child. He is trying to figure out who is with
who. Blair gives him the score card. Todd with Téa and she with her
very, very good friend Max who Todd locked with her in the wine cellar.
Sam jokes that wine cellars will do that. He admits that the flowers
were really a bribe for her to accept his dinner invitation, but he
guesses she will be saving her free time for Max. He is a little
disappointed but Blair tells him he is the nicest guy she met in a long
time. They hug as Cassie comes down the stairs with River. Sam tells
Cassie that Blair and he are just friends Cassie replies they mind their
business in this household (Right!). Starr is changing into yet another
dress. Like mother like daughter, Sam jokes. Cassie can't wait any
longer. She was expecting Kevin. He was at Viki's a little while ago,
she supposes he will meet her at St. James for the graduation.
Kelly tells Blair and Sam about the call Drew got. Blair mentions that
Kevin is supposed to be at the graduation. This is so strange. They
wonder if this has to do with Georgie's murder. Kelly goes off to find
Drew. Blair worries about Todd showing up at the graduation. Sam
agrees to come in case Todd and the police show up.
The Lodge- Todd and the Usual Suspects
Kevin is unwilling to bring Barbara into this. Todd says that it is
nurse Barbara or nothing. Viki says he is risking bleeding to death.
Todd asks what does manslaughter go for these days? Viki could be
visiting her first born son for 10 years at Statesville and that sounds
like a good deal to him. Kevin relents, agreeing that the sooner he
gets what he wants, the better. Todd comments on how awfully cooperative he is
being. He warns Kevin he screws it up, Todd will kill him.
Barbara answers the phone at the Mill House. She was about to take
David to River's graduation. Kevin gives her directions to the Lodge
and says for her to get there as soon as she can that someone is injured
but he is OK. She should bring her bag. Medicine bag, she questions.
The one you always carry (READ the handbag she carries her gun in). Is
he trying to tell her something. Yes I am, Kevin replies before Todd
grabs the phone and slams the receiver on Barbara.
Suddenly, there are footsteps. First Bo, Asa and Nora, then Hank and
Rachel, followed d by Drew. Todd says, Welcome to this is your life. Nora
realizes for everyone that they walked into a trap. Asa blusters that
he always knew Todd was the killer. Todd says he better hope not and
holds the knife to Viki's throat. He wants to know who killed
"You Buchanans wanted me to take the fall and why not, I'm not any loss,
but that is not going to happen to me."
"Then who killed her, Manning", Bo inquires.
Todd replies that this is what they are going to find out. One of them
is going to confess. Asa says that Todd can't take all of them with just one knife and Hank comes forward to hold the old man back as Nora states the obvious that Viki could die if they make a move. Viki says she is quite sure Asa would not mind sacrificing her. Hank says that he is sure they could work this out with Todd.
Todd has a surprise for them all. He tells them:
"Everyone stay calm. I would really like an excuse to blow you all to
kingdom come". He opens his jacket and shirt to reveal several sticks
of dynamite strapped to his chest!
