A badly injured Matt
returned home, but
called in sick to the
hospital claiming he had the flu. Grace decided to
surprise Matt by bringing him some soup. When Grace
arrived at Matt's door, however, he refused to let her in as
he didn't want her to learn about his injuries. Rex
reminded Lucy that Serena would be moving in that day.
Lucy convinced Rex to let her handle Serena's arrival and
planned to have Serena's bedroom set moved to Rex's.
Later, Serena arrived at Rex's and was clearly unhappy to
be there. Serena became upset when Lucy told her that
she had married Rex. Lucy explained that marrying Rex
was the only way she could live with Serena and Lucy
promised Serena that she would never leave her. Eve
continued with her scheme to help Scott escape from the
hospital. Joe went over Scott's blood work and realized
that he was not seriously ill. Joe then confronted Eve and
figured out what she was really up to. Joe wanted to help
and he took Scott's place in his hospital bed while Eve
sneaked Scott out of the hospital inside a cart. Before
Scott left the hospital, however, he and Eve shared a
passionate kiss. Later, Conklin arrived outside Scott's
door and was intent on questioning him. Kevin and Jake
worked out the details of their plan to make Rex think that
Danielle was still alive.
At the coffeehouse, Devon spilled his drink. Kay approached him and asked if he needed a hand. Devon said he was just clumsy. Kay offered to help Devon if he ever needed a hand.
Wednesday, February 11, 1998
After successfully escaping from the hospital, Scott
called Lucy at Rex's and asked her to pick up a bag
of hidden gold coins at the firehouse and to bring
Serena to him at the plane hanger so that he could
flee the country with Serena. Meanwhile, Rex, Lucy
and Serena had lunch together and Serena took great delight in misbehaving when she
dumped pepper all over Rex's pasta. Lucy then made an excuse and left with Serena
and went to the firehouse, where they ran into Kevin. Lucy and Kevin embraced and Lucy
explained how she had avoided intimacy with Rex by drinking Marsala wine. Kevin then
told Lucy about his and Jake's plan to make Rex believe that Danielle was still alive and
willing to testify against him. Lucy left Serena with Kevin and then went to meet Scott.
Scott was furious when he realized Serena wasn't with Lucy, who then begged Scott to
give Kevin's plan a chance. Meanwhile, Conklin discovered that Scott had escaped from
the hospital. Joe and Karen pleaded with Conklin not to report Scott's disappearance.
Conklin warned Joe and Karen that they needed to get Scott back to the hospital as
soon as possible or risk going to jail themselves. Conklin, however, didn't tell the guard
about Scott's escape and went along with the charade. Grace visited Matt and refused to
leave until he let her into his apartment. Grace then realized that Matt was seriously
wounded and needed a doctor. Later, Grace told Ellen that Matt was very ill and asked
her to go and see him.
Lucy convinces Scotty to return to town and hear Kevin out before he
attempts to disappear with Serena. Meanwhile, Rex has another run-in
with Serena, who chomps down on her uncle's finger when he tries to pat
her on the head. A worried Grace brought Ellen back to Matt's apartment
to deal with their friend's deteriorating condition. Appalled by the
looks of the infected wound, Ellen insists on taking Matt to General
Hospital but he vehemently refuses to comply. Rex suggests to Lucy that
they send Serena away to a European boarding school to instill a sense
of discipline into the unruly child. Kevin and Jake explain to Scotty
how they plan to bait a trap for Rex using parts of a phone message
Danielle left on the answering machine at the lighthouse months ago.
Unable to persuade Matt to go to the hospital, Ellen reluctantly agrees
to treat his injuries herself. Although she pressures him to disclose
how he became wounded, Matt reminds the chief resident that everyone has
a few secrets they need to keep to themselves. Lucy fakes exhaustion to
postpone yet again the roll in the hay that Rex has been so eagerly
anticipating. Scotty asks Eve to double for the late Danielle but warns
that the deception could put her life in jeopardy. Ellen receives
another shock when she discovers that Matt is carrying a gun. Rex
eavesdrops on Kevin's call to Lucy and is startled to hear a familiar
voice speaking from the grave.
After seeing the results of the latest lab tests, Ellen warns Grace that
Matt's condition is even worse than they thought. Serena again expresses
her distaste for her uncle by stomping on Rex's foot when he wishes her
a good morning. Later, Rex surreptitiously places an electronic bug in
Lucy's purse. Nervous about the plan to resurrect Danielle, Eve reminds
Scotty that Friday the thirteenth may prove to be very bad luck for all
of them. At the Recovery Room, Mike proudly shows off his new fortune
telling machine to several of his regular customers. Julie coaxes Joe to
be the first brave soul to try his luck, then is surprised when the
fortune seems to come true almost immediately. Well aware that Rex is
monitoring their conversation, Kevin told Lucy how Joe and Karen helped
Jake fake Danielle's death and bury a Jane Doe's corpse in her stead.
Ellen starts Matt on a broad-spectrum antibiotic in an attempt to fight
back the infection that has seeped into his bloodstream. Though she
again urges him to go to the hospital, Matt forces his friend to swear
that she won't take him in no matter what happens. Lark angrily objects
when Julie suggests that she accompany the girl and Frank on a visit to
Mrs. Madison. After another of "Bernadette's" predictions comes true,
Mike admits to the interns that he got the machine for practically
nothing because its last owner believed it was haunted.
