Llanfair (Viki, Will & Jess)
Will comes by looking for Jess and Viki expresses her disdain about Will
causing Jess to be arrested. Will assures her that it won't happen again
and that he will watch out for Jess. Viki goes on to tell Will that Jess
has led a sheltered life, when the camera cuts to Jess standing on the
stairs in a midriff baring skirt and top.
Cris's Studio (Cris & Roseanne)
The pair enter the studio and Rosie sees her portrait for the first time
and from the expression on her face, she is obviously very pleased.
Dorian's Studio (Lindsay & Dorian)
Dorian enters and rants about Lindsay having a wall torn down. This scene
is really not worth mentioning except for the fact that I must ask where
is Robin Strasser working out at, get me the directions and the phone
number ASAP cause girlfriend is looking very well. I am too jealous of
her shape. Actually both of these ladies are looking very well. Kudos
Buch Enterprises, Sam's Office (Sam, Téa, T1[Todd] & T2 [Tom])
T2 (Tom) enters with Sam, greets Téa in spanish, then hands her a bouquet of
flowers. Téa apologizes for not believing him. Téa, by the way is looking
like she's on cloud 9 and I don't know about you guys but I think my boy
Todd is faking the funk with this DID thing. I love him but I wouldn't buy
this story if it were on a clearance rack. But let me add that he is doing
a damn fine job playing it. Anyway, T2 tells Sam that he appreciates him
and always thought of him as a father. When Sam turns away, a decidedly
familiar Todd look of disgust crosses Todd's face. (clue) . Sam tells Téa
and the two T's that he has both good and bad news. The good is that Téa's
on their side, the bad is that the trial has been moved up and Hank will be
coming after Todd with both barrels. T2 replies, "it's okay cause I'm not
Todd". Meanwhile Téa is standing there with the goofiest I'm in love and
Gidget happy look, I've ever seen. She then pulls a tape out of her purse
(you know the one of she & Kev setting Todd up). Well let me tell ya that
the 2 T's were none to pleased with this turn of events. See T1 didn't
know there was a tape and he almost loses it big time (clue). In his best
Tom voice he sweetly asks if anyone else has seen the tape, then he says no
Club Indigo (R.J. & Hank)
Give these two very fine actors a story please. They discussed Rachel and
you all know how I feel about her so enough said.
Buch Enterprises Sam's Office (Téa, Sam and the 2 T's)
Téa explains, to an uninformed Sam, about the tape and the fake love scene
between she and Kevin. She tells him how the real Todd would have blown up
upon seeing she and Kevin, but Tom was gentle and kind and that's how she
came to the conclusion that Todd wasn't faking his alter. Sam was hot, and
asked to see Téa outside. After they leave, T1 pops in the video tape to
check out Kev & Téa.
Llanfair (Jess, Viki & Will)
Viki and Jess have a very cool mother and daughter moment when Viki sees
Jess's navel ring and Jess whispers that it's fake. Afterward. Will
convinces Jess (whose obviously uncomfortable in this outfit) that she
doesn't need the Roseanne get up, that she is just fine the way she is.
This boy is starting to grow on me and I kinda like the two of them
Cris's Studio (Cris & Rosie)
Rosie asks Cris what happens once the painting is finished. A clueless
Cris (how come men never know when women are interested in them geez what a
utterly clueless gender) says, well what do you mean? we're friends nothing
is going to change. Duh Cris, this girl is sickeningly gaga over you so
what she was really saying is, we've been spending so much time together
and have become so much closer during this portrait where do we go
Dorian's studio (Lindsay & Bo)
Bo visits the studio and finds a sculpture he wants to buy. It turns out
that Lindsay is the artist and Bo is impressed.
Indigo (R.J., Hank & Dorian)
A vexed R.J. unpacks Indigo T-shirts and mugs that Max has ordered. He
complains to Hank that Max has no sense of style or class. He goes on
about how the customer base has fallen off and Hank and R.J. actually have a
tender brotherly moment. Afterwards, Dorian enters with a proposition.
Sam's Office (Téa, Sam, Viki, 2T's & Hank)
T 1&2 watch the video intently as Kevin and Téa kiss. Outside the office,
Sam continues to ream Téa for setting Todd up. Inside T1 pauses the tape
at the section which shows him coming down the stairs and seeing Kevin and
Téa. T1 zooms in on his face and looks at the expression (which looks
rather enraged). T1 then says to himself, "uh oh". I guess he saw what I
saw (Faker). Outside, Téa tells Viki how Tom (T2) has convinced her with
his actions that he is not faking. Hank comes in and asks Sam to play
'let's make a deal'.
Cris asks Rosie to come to NY with he, Jess and Will. Rosie blows up and
goes on about how she's not rich nor does she have a scholarship. She
pulls out a voodoo doll while Chris is in the bathroom and says she won't
let anything stand in her way.
Dorian's Studio (Lindsay, Bo, Will & Jess)
Lindsay gives Bo a statue gratis. Bo invites her to a family dinner.
Jess and Will stop by and try to get Lindsay to showcase some of Cris's
Indigo (R.J. & Dorian)
Dorian tells R.J. that she wants him to DJ and cater her gallery opening and
in exchange she'll help Indigo get back on the map. R.J. is suspicious and
asks what she really wants from him. (in the background, music from the
Godfather begins to play). Dorian tells R.J. that she just wants some help
with her family.
Llanfair (Jess & Will)
Will continues to give Jess advice on how to win Cris. He tells her to
lay off Cris and he'll call. Jess laughs at him considering how he
practically stalks Rosie. Sure enough though, Cris calls and tells her
how well things are going and that he loves her.
Cris's Studio (Cris, Roseanne, & Lindsay)
Lindsay stops by to see Cris's work. Rosie is in the bathroom with ears
pressed to the door listening. Lindsay sees Rosie's portrait and comments
to Cris that the picture has a lot of passion.
Indigo (R.J. , Dorian & Bo)
Dorian tell R.J. that she wants him to spy on Kevin, she's sure he'll cheat
again. R.J. thinks about it and agrees to do it. Bo enters and tells Dorian
that he just left her gallery and bought a piece called 'mother and child'
as a gift for Nora. Dorian says she wonders how Nora will fell displaying
art by her ex's ex. Bo winces.
Sam's Office (Sam, Hank, Téa, Viki, 2T's)
Hank tells Sam that in return for a guilty plea, he is prepared to drop all
charges against Todd for his attempts to flee. Sam sends him packing.
Viki tells Sam that he should be prepared for a long road and that they
should have Todd examined by a psychologist because there may be more
alters. Sam gives Téa one last parting shot about the tape and asks what
she plans to do about her husband. Téa replies that she plans to stay
beside him. Viki asks to see Tom. Inside T1 stops the tape and angrily
mutters something. He throws the remote and lifts the TV to hurl it across
the room, too. Just then, Viki enters the room and calls his name. T1
freezes and presto chango turns into T2 (Tom) and the expression goes from
angry to docile.

Written by: Cheryl Patack
Mel and Kevin are discussing Mel's progress on the mugger story. The
conversation turns to Kevin and Cassie. Kevin assures Mel that his sole
interest is winning back Cassie. Mel asks, what about the Todd/Tom story.
Kevin again assures Mel that all he cares about is getting Cassie back.
Carlotta is pouring Bibi a cup of coffee. Bibi is very jittery and
nervous. Carlotta suggests she may want some herbal tea to calm her down.
Bibi laughs off the suggestion and assures Carlotta she is o.k. When
Carlotta walks away, Bibi opens her purse and fingers her gun. Drew enters
and gives Bibi a victim service's card and suggests that she call them.
Bibi assures him that she can handle things on her own.
Kelly, Bo & Asa are discussing their business deal. It is obvious Kelly
did some quick learning about business and contracts. She makes Asa assure
her that her money will be safe. He does. Asa is eager to have her sign
the contract so they can proceed ahead with the purchase of The Sun. Kelly
won't sign until Asa adds a rider stating that Blair can remain
editor-in-chief of The Sun for as long as she wants.
Max and Blair are trying to come up with a way to get some money to keep
The Sun away from Kelly. Max is very eager for a solution because he wants
he and Blair to get back to being a team and starting their future
together. Blair says the only way to keep The Sun away from Kelly is for
Todd to give it to her outright. Just then Starr comes down the stairs and
Max stares at her and says "maybe there is a way".
Viki enters the office just as Tom is about to throw the TV across the
room. Viki asks what upset him so. She starts the tape. Tom (or I guess
it really is Todd now) covers his eyes and nervously peeks through
his hands. Viki sees Kevin and Téa kissing and undressing. She asks
Tom what it's all about. Tom makes her promise not to be mad at Kevin.
Viki asks what is going on. Tom says that Kevin and Téa set him up to
prove he is faking. Viki is outraged. Tom says is OK because now Téa
believes him. Viki is extremely angry and apologizes to Tom and assures
him nothing like that will ever happen again. After Viki leaves
Todd says "Well Kev, it looks like my crazy sis is going to be real
mad at you".
Max and Starr are playing with a new tape recorder that Max gave her. Max
is acting cheesy recording his voice saying "Max is groovy guy" (ugh!)
Starr says that Max is funny. Starr goes upstairs and Max suggests that
Blair use Starr to try to get Todd to give them the paper. Blair says no
way. She will not use her "little girl" like that.
Asa says no way to the rider in the contract. Kelly starts to leave. Bo
stops her and Asa relents. She says she wants one more thing. She wants to
tell Drew about everything. No problem says Asa. She says that as soon as
the rider is added they are in business. She leaves and Asa and Bo toast
their deal. They wonder how Clint will take the news. Bo tells Asa that
he wants The Sun to be a "good" paper. Asa says of course it will because
it will be a Buchanan paper and the Buchanans will run it. Bo says what
about Blair? Asa says "there are editors and then there are editors". It
appears that Blair will be editor in name only and the Buchanans will be
making all the behind the scenes decisions. Asa says he wants to be able
to hand down this paper to an heir. Bo asks which one, all of the
grandchildren don't seem to be interested in running a paper, besides Kevin
of course. Asa says that's why you and Nora need to have a baby so he can
pass the paper down to. Bo tells him not to get his hopes up.
Kevin and Mel continue to discuss Kevin's "undying" love and devotion to
Cassie. He holds up an envelope and tells Mel that this letter will prove
how much he loves her. Just as he is saying this, Bibi enters the Banner
and sees him put the letter in Cassie's in box. She stares at it. Kevin
leaves the city room to go to his dad's office to work.
Drew and Kelly are cooing and gurgling over one another (do they make
anyone else's teeth hurt?) Kelly tells him of her deal and then asks him
about the mugger. Drew is disheartened that they have no leads and reminds
her to be careful around the docks at night. The conversation turns to
Barbara and Drew asks Kelly's opinion on Barbara and her stability. Kelly
says that she's been through a lot and it's understandable to be a little
shaky. Drew still seems concerned. They get up to leave and Drew finds
the card he gave Barbara earlier on the floor.
Mel asks Barbara why she is there. She replies she has some more info on
the mugger. It seems she's been getting mysterious hang-ups on her
answering machine. After all, the mugger got her license and all her
personal information so maybe he's stalking her. Mel says she should go
to the police. Barbara doesn't want to do that because then her father
will find out and get over-protective of her and she doesn't want that to
happen. She thinks maybe it could be someone trying to reach her and
chickening out (hmmm, do we see a "Fatal Attraction" thing beginning here?)
Mel suggests she change her number. Again, she doesn't want to do that
because she doesn't want to live in an ivory tower all her life.
Max and Blair are still talking when Tom and Sam arrive home. Blair asks
how Tom's defense is going and Sam says great, he's going to get him off.
Starr and Tom are sitting on the staircase and Starr gives him a picture
she drew of Tom. Tom tells her not to call him Todd or Tom, just Daddy.
Starr asks if he is two people, he says no and quickly stops himself.
Meanwhile, Sam and Max are subtly (or not) fighting for Blair's attention.
Sam says he got new furniture so now when Blair comes to visit, she won't
have to sit on the floor. Blair replies she didn't mind. Max says he
didn't know she went there. Both men start to leave and Max goes and says
he'll call her later and Sam sweeps Blair into his arms and plants one
right on her lips (Go Sam!) He leaves and Max gives him a childish look
behind his back. Blair just closes the door.
Viki finds Kevin in Clint's office and begins thrashing him for his
sadistic reporting. They keep going over the same territory. Yelling and
screaming about Viki's blindness to Todd's faking and Viki feels Kevin is
treating him unfairly. He and Téa could've caused Todd irreparable
harm if they pursued their stunt. Maybe they just can't work together.
Viki wonders aloud if Kevin would have treated the story the same way if it
was not Todd suffering from DID. Kevin asks her if she's firing him.
Barbara asks Mel for a cup of tea. While he's gone, she snatches the
letter out of Cassie's in box and leaves. When Mel returns, she is gone.
Cut to the outside of the Banner. Bibi is reading the letter while we hear
Kevin's voice-over. He is professing his love for Cassie and reassuring
her that Barbara is out of their lives and means absolutely nothing to him.
Barbara starts hysterically crying.
Blair goes back inside to talk to Tom and in the background we hear Starr
saying over and over again "Susie, Susie, Susie". Blair asks her to be
quiet. She says "Starr, I'm talking to you." Starr looks up at her and
says: "I'm not Starr, I'm Susie". Blair looks horrified.
