Sam and Blair- Sam's new house
Sam and Blair are still basking in the afterglow of the night before.
Since she had mentioned not being a morning person, Sam asks if he
converted her. Blair replies that getting up in the morning and staying
up until dawn are two different things. She comments that last night
was like getting to know him for the first time. Sam tells Blair that he
talked more about himself than about she did about herself and he would
like to know about her history. Blair said there was not much good to
tell, but she jokes that she did have one foster mom who actually baked
sugar cookies for when the social worker came. The best part of her life
didn't begin until she was 18 and found her Mom. She is sure that Addie
will like Sam. Addie is perceptive in a childlike way and people are
either good or bad. She knows her mother will pick Sam as one of the
good guys. Sam looks at Blair longingly and remarks that her eyes turn
different colors with the light. Last night he could see the music go
right through her eyes. Sometimes when she is guarded they turn green
like a catwoman. Now they are peaceful, calm, serene and he knows the
reason now for the changes. Blair replies that he sees more in her
than anyone has ever seen. Sam assures her that she need never be
afraid of him.
Max is in the penthouse. He has been informed by the housekeeper that
Téa took Todd to his doctor's appointment. Mr. Rappaport made the
arrangements. Max notes that Sam must be on the job early.
Sam's House- Blair and Sam
Blair calls Max's cell phone. She has no idea he is at the penthouse.
He says he wants to celebrate her being elevated to publisher. Blair replies there
is a change of plans, she can't explain but meet her at the penthouse.
Max knows she is lying. Sam comes in and admires Blair wearing Will's
clothes. He says she may start a trend. She has to get to the penthouse,
but she doesn't want to leave him. Sam says they will just start where
they left off.
Blair feels like she is getting in too deep, but Sam tells her that they
are in the same boat. Blair doesn't understand how he can know her
better than she knows herself. Sam says he would never hurt her after
last night and this morning. It will be OK. He will feel the same way
tonight after they come home from work. It will be the same as last
night. But for now he has to do some work researching Todd's case.
After that, he will spend time with Blair removing the look of fear from
her face and their happiness will be complete.
Nora, Bo and Viki- Nora and Bo's house
Bo is exercising and ready for a jog in the park. Nora is exhausted
after a pleasant night of making love, but wonders at his stamina. Bo
feels like he can do anything and is thinking they may have made a
masterpiece last night. Nora worries if they are parenting material or
is she being neurotic. Bo is sure their child will be well adjusted.
Nora jokes about who their child will play with since she doesn't know
any well adjusted people in Llanview (Truest thing said so far!) Just
then, Viki arrives. She is going to China as an appointed
representative of the President and she does not know where Jessica is.
She lied to her and said she was staying at Amy's, but she is not there.
Bo volunteers to make a call and find out where she is. He comes back a
few minutes later with the 411. He tells Viki that Annie at police
headquarters told him she sent a car to the lodge. Jessica is alright
but she is not alone! (The police should get to the Lodge that quickly
when there are murders and hostage taking incidents!)
The Lodge- Will and Jessica
Jessica awakens and sees the half full wine glass. She seems to be
confused by her surroundings. Somewhere next to her there is a body
hidden under the covers. She calls Cristian's name, but is shocked to
see the person next to her is Will!
Jessica is so embarrassed that something like this could happen and she
would not remember. But she flashes back to the glass of wine that
spilled on the rug and then she slugged some out of the bottle. Next she
remembers kissing Will passionately. Of course neither one of them
meant for this to happen and Will is almost as upset when he realizes
that this was a first time for Jessica. They were both so wasted.
Jessica gathers her clothes together and leaves the room to get dressed.
Will pulls himself together, gets up and smashes the bottle against the
Jessica comes back a few moments later and begins to clean up the mess
the wine made. Will says he only meant to help her and how did it end
up like this. He is so sorry because it was her first time. Jessica
frets she can't get the stain off the rug. Will tells her that he was
upset because the new girl in town Roseanne wasn't giving him a tumble
but Jessica and Cris were together for 3 years and he (Will) ruined it
for her. Jessie wonders what will happen with Cris after this and
whether her mom will kill her. Will swears no one will know. Jessica
says she can't hide this from Cris. He was so patient. She had always
dreamed of her first time with him. It would be perfect. She and Cris
would be engaged, maybe married. Is that old fashioned? Will doesn't
think so. Jessica continues that the first time was supposed to be
beautiful, like her Mom said. To her, it was supposed to be the total
commitment of body and heart and she and Cris would wake up the next day
in each other's arms. A sudden thought occurs to Jessie and she asks
Will the all important question: "You did use a condom, didn't you?"
Lindsay and Hank-the Park
Lindsay and Hank are both dressed for running and almost run into each
other. He recognizes her as Lindsay Rappaport. She corrects him and
says that she is now Lindsay Buchanan, also known as the 'Llanview
Pariah'. Hank doesn't believe that. Lindsay says she married Clint and
Viki is the town's icon. Hank replies that Viki is a decent lady.
Lindsay wants to know if Nora gave him an earful about her. Hank
assures her that her being married to Clint is no business of his.
Lindsay should just give the Buchanans time and they will come around.
Lindsay prattles on about feeling displaced and how she is about to lose
Will when he goes to college. Hank says he understands. Lindsay
apologizes for not considering his position with Rachel, after all Will
is only down the street and his daughter is in prison. Hank tells her
not to worry about it. He is waiting for Bo, who is his running partner. He
tells her that Bo is his best friend. While Hank warms up and runs in
place, Lindsay invites him to her art gallery opening. She is counting
on him being there because she is afraid no one will show up. Hank says
he will be there. Lindsay comments on the fabulous 90's relationship
Hank has with his ex wife's husband. How does he do that? Hank replies
he had to be good friends with Nora first. Lindsay says that whatever
Nora has she would like to buy it by the case. Bo shows up and Lindsay
remarks that she trusts he and Nora had a productive reunion. Hank and
Bo ask her to join them but Lindsay says she has her own routine.
The Lodge-Will, Jessica and Viki
Will never answers the question about the condom because Viki arrives
asking Jessica if she is alright and wanting to know what has happened
there. She tells her Mom that Cris called her a spoiled brat and then
Will and she saw Cristian and Roseanne together and they came to the
lodge. Will admits they were drinking and that it was his fault.
Jessica says she is sorry to Viki. Viki replies that drinking is not
the answer and she cannot think of anything stupider Jessica could have
done. But at least they weren't driving. Will says he learned his
lesson there. His father drummed it into his head. Viki asks if either
of them got any sleep and Jessica says that Will slept in the guest
room. Viki tells Will she needs some time alone with Jessica. He says
he is sober enough to drive. Viki warns him that she has a lot to say
to him, but she expects him to talk to his father about this and if he
doesn't, then she (Viki) will.
After he leaves, Jessica tells her mom just how ashamed she is. Viki
holds her and call her her baby. She says she thought Jessie was with
Cris and that he and Jessica might have done something she regretted.
She is so sorry to hear about how Cris treated her maybe she should not
go to China. Jessica tells her mom she is so proud of her presidential
appointment and she must go. Viki assures her that her daughter is more
important than any symposium in China could be. But Jessica says she
will be alright and Viki agrees to go to China.
Law Office- Nora and Sam
Nora drops by and asks if he is having trouble keeping his mind on his
work. He looks like he stayed up all night and is having trouble
staying awake. She finds Blair's scarf and asks if he was "putting
briefs together" with some young attorney. Sam replies he is not going
to touch that. Nora notes a half sappy, half sexy look on his face and
Sam counters that she has the same look on her face. Nora continues to
wonder who Sam is seeing.
Nora is shocked to learn that Sam's new love is Blair. Sam says she is
wrong about her. Nora may see an opportunistic wheeler dealer, but he
sees more than that. Blair is a beautiful, sexy and intelligent woman and
she is also at times a little girl who needed to do all she could to
survive. Nora replies that Blair is a species to herself. Sam reminds
Nora that he has his PHD in broken hearts and that Nora was his graduate
school. He can take care of himself. Nora loosens up and says that if
he is happy, she is happy for him. She then shares her news about
starting a family with Bo.
Penthouse- Max and Blair
Max is waiting for Blair when she gets to the Penthouse. He asks her if
she lost something last night and shows her the tape she unraveled and
the ring he gave her. "So you succumbed to the dubious charms of Mr.
good two shoes! Did you tell him Todd is faking?" She admits she
didn't. Max says that they will proceed with the blackmailing of Todd
as agreed. Blair protests. Max shows her the copy of the tape he made.
He says he is flattered to think she thought he gave her the only copy.
Just shows what a bad influence Sam is on her.
Blair is angry that he double crossed her. Max restates it as their
having double crossed each other and says it proves they were made for
each other. Blair says she is not going along with his plans this time.
This time, every time, Max tells her. She thinks like he does. She
needs to get over Sammy. Todd blinked when he confronted him and her ex
will be serving up the Sun. That is going to make Blair very happy.
Blair says he does not even have a clue. He holds out the ring and
replies that this threw him off momentarily but he figures that a night
at the opera, Blair got snagged, but now the fat lady has sung and the
curtain has come down. This is a new day and he loves her and he doesn't
think his heart could take it if she doesn't love him. Blair says she
is sorry but she loves Sam. Max refuses to believe that Sam loves her
like he does (Nobody can love anyone as selfishly as Max does). Blair
just loves the fantasy she has created about Sam. Max admits he is no
saint. He wishes he was. Blair will learn to live with it because they
are meant to be together. She can't turn her back on that. Blair
insists that she loves Sam.
The Park- Hank, Bo and Lindsay
Hank notices how pumped up Bo is. Bo is proud of Drew and disagrees
with Hank that he had anything to do with straightening him out. He
regrets missing all the firsts with Drew, but the wonder of it all is
that Drew is not bitter and that he is a good cop. Last night Drew gave
his blessing on a plan Nora and Bo have to have a baby. Now Bo will
have a chance to experience all he missed out on. Hank recognizes baby
fever when he sees it. Pretty soon Bo will get handy around the house,
stop ladies with baby carriages, telling them how cute their little ones
are, imagining putting up train sets and walking around with a goofy
smile on his face. Hank will help him with the diaper changing. But he
has to warn Bo that Nora drove him crazy when she was pregnant with
Rachel. She has to have what she wants all the time (Surprise!). Bo
says he would go to the ends of the earth to bring Nora whatever she
wanted. Unbeknownst to Bo and Hank, Lindsay has overheard their whole
Sam and Nora
Sam is a little shocked to hear that Nora wants a baby. Is she sure it
is not something she is doing to save her marriage. Nora asks if he is
giving her a hard time because she gave him one about Blair. They both
make amends with Sam saying he is happy for her and Nora saying he
should tell Blair she is happy for them. Sam says it is new beginning
for both of them. They agree it is about time, but there is a look in
both of their eyes reflecting what used to be and what might have been
Sam's House- Will Alone
Will shouts for his dad, but Sam is not home. He closes his eyes and
Jessica's words come back to him, "You did use a condom, didn't you?"
The words echo in his ears and terrify him.
Penthouse- Max and Blair
Max tells Blair she made her choice. She says that she threw away the
tape and Max lied about not having a copy. Max replies that he doesn't
want to do this but if he has to, he will tell Sam that she knew Todd was
faking it all along and then they will see how warm and fuzzy Sam is.
Blair tells him he does not know the meaning of love and she did not
know herself until last night. Max says that she can beg and plead and
lash out at him, but he is never letting her go.
