Adriana shows up at Rex's place and tells him that he may have been right about Tate all along, that she suspects he is just like his dad, and Rex lets her in. She tells Rex about the handshake with Vincent and how Tate wiped his hand afterwards and the incident at the funeral home with the director. Rex gets jumpy and wants to know if Tate has threatened her - she tells him he hasn't - but she tells him there's more and she tells him about the medallion she found in Tate's backpack. She is worried because she's let Tate into her life and how horribly he reacted when she confronted him about the OPP medal but that she did get him to agree to toss it out. They decide to go down to the police department to talk to Bo about Tate, but Adriana is worried because they don't have anything concrete and she's scared. Rex tells her it's a good thing she's scared because then she'll be likely to be more careful.

Layla and Vincent show up at her apartment and she has the feeling that there's someone there (Tate is hiding in the closet). She checks and says that it was just her neighbors she was hearing because she had left her window open. She tells Vincent that she doesn't want Tate to be a part of Xposed anymore and she's going to talk to Adriana and ask her to stay away from Tate, just to be safe. Vincent tells her he thinks that's a good idea and he'll do anything he can to protect Layla. He tells Layla she needs to do something for herself and he has a surprise for her but she has to change into one of her best dresses and he'll come back to pick her up. She agrees and when she turns around after he's left, Tate is standing there and she asks him how he got in.

Miles is moping in his holding cell, with the ghost of Spencer in his head taunting him, telling him he should have killed Todd when he had the chance and he wouldn't be in this situation. Miles says all he wanted was to be accepted and to have a family but he did things Spencer's way and things always go wrong.

John and Blair are at the campground still looking for Todd, who Hunter has dragged to a cheap motel room and tossed liquor on, but John and Blair only find drag marks and figured Todd has been moved. Todd manages to call Blair from the motel room phone, and John has it traced and they arrive at the motel and kick down the door to find a naked woman in bed with Todd.

Cole keeps trying to apologize to Starr but it's not working. She tells him that Britney was right, that Cole was lying to her and that he lied about helping her. She doesn't believe that he loves her, she hates him and wants him to leave. Starr tells him that the only way to fix things is for him to go back and time and do the right thing, but it's too late and he can't do that so she wants him out, but he refuses to leave until she sees his side. He tells her that he was trying to keep his mom out of jail but she tells him that jail time and death are not even close to being the same. They bicker more about their parents and Cole yells "Why should I pick your dad when he raped my mom?!" Starr is shocked and tells him that her dad is different now. Cole tells Starr that Miles wanted him to kill Todd, but that he wouldn't do it. He was planning on walking out and going to the police when Miles played the tape with Marty's confession on it and started blackmailing him over his mother's safety. Once Starr realizes that Miles wanted Todd dead and had asked Cole to do it, it may be too late to save her dad and tells Cole if her dad dies it's all on him - she kicks him out finally and still hasn't heard from her mom.

Wednesday, July 25, 2007

Michael examines Todd, thinking of a conversation with Rex about what they've been hiding. Todd wants his son. Michael tells Blair and Viki about Todd's prognosis. Michael doesn't let them see Todd because he wants to ask Todd what he remembers. Blair tells Viki how Todd was found, passed out with a prostitute. Paige overrules Michael and says Blair and Viki can go in. Then, Paige confronts Michael about his treatment of Todd's family. Viki says Todd has cheated death again. Todd wakes up and tells Viki and Blair that they "yak, yak, yak" too much. Paige notices Michael's behavior is off and tells him to go home. Michael asks Paige if she knows about Marcie's infertility. She says yes. Viki asks if Todd wants anything, and he laughingly asks for more drugs. Todd says he feels hungover. Blair tells Todd how he was found and asks if he remembers anything. Todd doesn't remember the prostitute but says he remembers everything else. Paige says Marcie asked for a referral to a fertility specialist, and offers to help Michael and Marcie. Michael goes into the room as Todd remembers the crack house in Chicago and hearing the tape of the crying baby. Blair tells Todd that she and John found the tape. Todd was jumped in the crack house by someone he never saw. He doesn't remember much else. Michael asks Todd how he's feeling, and Todd says again how much he likes the drugs he's on. Viki promises they will find Todd's son. Paige asks Viki how Todd's doing, then says David wants to speak with Viki urgently. Starr arrives and has a touching father-daughter reunion. Todd apologizes for missing Starr's prom and musical. Todd asks if he would have approved of her prom date; Blair and Starr share a look and Blair covers it, saying Todd wouldn't have approved of any young man.

Langston and Markko visit Starr to cheer her up. Starr tells them she knows Cole lied to her about knowing where Todd was. Langston sides with Starr; Markko says there's got to be something more because Cole isn't like that. Starr tells them about Marty's confession to Spencer's murder. Langston, Markko, and Starr discuss Marty's arrest and Cole's dishonesty. Markko sticks up for Cole, saying they would have done the same thing to save a parent, and tells them to give Cole the benefit of the doubt. Starr never wants to see Cole again. Starr's phone rings: it's Blair, who says Todd's been found and he's going to be okay.

Cole visits Marty in jail. Cole says he could kill Miles. Marty says she did something wrong and has to pay. They talk about hiring a lawyer and posting bail, but in the meantime, Marty needs Cole to take care of himself and live a normal life. Cole again threatens Miles. Marty makes him promise to let Bo and John do their jobs. Nora arrives, having heard of Marty's arrest. Marty asks if Nora is visiting in an official capacity, and she says no, no charges are being pressed yet. Nora is letting Bo and John work the case and make a recommendation. Nora says she won't prosecute her friend, and she will recuse herself from Marty's case if charges are brought. Marty asks her to take care of Cole. Cole insists he can take care of himself. Instead, Cole wants to move in with John. Nora says that might be a good idea. Marty insists Cole live with Nora, who says she'll ask John to keep Cole in the loop about the case. Cole and Marty say they love each other, then Nora takes Cole home. John arrives to visit Marty, and tells her that Todd has been found. Marty asks John to tell Cole. John says that having Cole stay with Nora is a good plan. Marty asks what else is wrong. John tells her that David is now a free man, so he can't be used to try to clear Marty. John is apologetic and vows it won't be over until Marty is free and clear, too.

Still in the hospital, David tries to order dinner and finds Renee has blacklisted him from ordering takeout from the Palace. John arrives and tells David to get ready to go on camera to tell the whole world he's Spencer's killer. David declines; John ignores him. John says he will bring the cameras to David's hospital room. A man shows up and tells David not to worry, that this is one threat that John won't make good on. The man is David's new, expensive lawyer, Howard, whom John recognizes from Trial TV. John wonders where David got the money to pay the famous attorney, who tells him to back off. John threatens to go to the IRS; Howard threatens John's job. John gives it right back to the lawyer, who says David's civil rights are being violated. David leans back with his arms behind his head, enjoying having John and Howard fight over him. Howard insists David is a free man who won't be going back to prison. He tells John to leave and take David's ankle monitor with him. Howard hands John an order vacating David's conviction and demanding immediate release. David giggles while John asks why Howard didn't just give this to him in the first place. Howard asks "where's the fun in that?" John leaves to get David released. David says it's too bad, because John knows where to get great cannolis, and now John hates him. David says there's something else he needs Howard to do for him. Later, Viki, very brusquely, visits David. David apologizes to her.

Adriana, Rex, and Talia look for Tate's OPP medallion, which is no longer in the garbage can. Rex thinks Tate came back and took it. Adriana calls Layla and Tate answers her phone. Then, Adriana lies to Rex and Talia that she spoke with Layla and says Layla took out the trash. As a result, Talia deems that it is too early to put an APB out for Tate. Adriana tries to get Rex to leave. Talia leaves and then Rex confronts Adriana, knowing she's hiding something. Rex calls her bluff by dialing Layla's cell phone, saying he'll get the truth from her. Adriana grabs his phone and yells at Rex, fighting about their breakup, trying to get him to back off. She spins a big lie to Rex about what Layla told her when they talked. Rex walks out, slamming the door. Adriana, crying, calls 911, then, remembering Tate's threat about coming alone, hangs up and leaves her apartment. Rex, being sneaky, follows her.

Layla arrives to meet Vincent on the Palace Hotel rooftop. She finds Vincent unconscious, tied in a chair, with a menacing Tate standing a few feet behind. Layla tries to wake Vincent up, then sees Tate and tries to run. Tate holds her at knifepoint and tells her he will kill her if she tries anything. Layla's cell phone rings and Tate answers her phone. Adriana asks Tate what he's done, and he replies "nothing yet" but Tate demands that Adriana come to the roof of the hotel, alone. Adriana and Layla are both near tears as Tate threatens Layla. Tate tells Layla to sit next to Vincent. Tate describes several different ways he might kill her. Vincent is awake, but pretends to be unconscious while trying to untie his hands. Tate makes Layla stand up, threatening to end it all, as Adriana arrives. Tate is annoyed, and Adriana is surprised, to see Rex arrive behind her. Tate says that now that the gang's all here, he can start the party.

John again has Marty reviewing events on the evening of Spencer's murder, but she is still unable to remember anything more. With great difficulty, she asks John to look in on Cole when she is sent to jail for a very long time. He refuses to help her give up. Bo has Tate upgraded to suspect though he and Talia doubt they have enough to get a warrant yet. Talia is certain that Adriana, Layla, Vincent and Rex are all safe in the girls' apartment, though she is unable to reach any of them via their cell phones. Bo questions Miles on his familiarity with Kandi Lane and Jordan Ames who hangs out at the Palace and apparently gave Kandi the job with Todd. He denies knowing either of them. Bo also suggests that Marty doesn't want to hear from Miles, when he tries to pass on a message.

At the hospital, Todd has a reunion with his family members and learns of all of the goings on with Marty and Miles. David tries to apologize to Viki and shows her that he's legally had all of the money transferred back to Clint. He couldn't bear Viki's bad thoughts of him and cares greatly about what she thinks of him. He asks her for forgiveness and after she tells him how hurt she feels to be played, intentional or not, she agrees. She thinks that he's just a child though giving back the money goes a long way. He feels that he's learned a lesson and signs the document, still a little regretful. Dorian thinks he's crazy but agrees he did the right thing. He promises to return and visit her, since he's planning on leaving Llanview once again. He feels noble, she's proud and he's feeling free finally, the first time since he was a kid. Viki talks to a troubled looking Paige and tells her to follow her heart. Todd convinces his family to let him sleep for awhile and leaves the hospital. He writes a note stating he had something to take care of.

The Llanview Police Department jail is where Todd heads. He wants to get to the bottom of Miles' actions but the prisoner's denials and non-answers result in Todd's choking him. Bo receives a visit from Renee and Nigel who have a bottle of bourbon for him from Asa, to thank him for his kindness. Bo refuses to accept the bottle or Asa's actions and lets Nigel know that he knows about the ten million dollar bribe. Talia overhears Renee talking on the phone about Vincent's planned rooftop dinner and realizes that Adriana lied about the group congregating at the apartment. At the cell, the guard on duty quickly summons help as the men have to be pulled apart and restrained. Bo refuses to press charges against Todd as Miles demands. Why? Because your lieutenant is hot after my wife? the prisoner rants, as John looks on. Bo learns that Paige is leaving town. Later, Miles unsuccessfully tries to "reach" Spencer but recognizes that he's on his own. John returns to his office and relates the events that just occurred in Miles' cell. Something he says clicks in Marty's head and suddenly, she remembers everything!

Nigel stops by to see David to offer Asa's good wishes after saving Jess' life. He sees what he needs to. Todd is back in bed but promises to finish his "chat" with Miles.

Up on the Palace roof, as Tate determinedly follows his mission, Rex tries to stall him as he spots Vincent trying to break free from his restraints. He engages him in conversation, learning of his tainted beliefs and the fact that his father took the fall for him. Adriana ties Rex up, following Tate's orders, though she slips him something sharp at the same time. Tate advises her that she was his cover, never a friend. He could hardly be friends with someone like her, a mutt. He offers to trade her for the other 3; she can save all of them by committing suicide. As her friends yell no, Adriana agrees to stand on the ledge. He wants her to jump. Vincent does a lot of shouting, again trying to slow things down. Tate tells them he will take full responsibility for her death via the OPP. When she hesitates, he threatens to throw Layla over instead. There's more threatening as Tate holds a knife to Adriana, ordering her to say, "I am not worthy to live." It all suddenly comes to an abrupt halt when a shot rings out; Talia has appeared on the roof and Tate goes down!
