Antonio told Ricardo that since they are brothers they should look out for
each other. Sister Betrill interrupts before he can talk to Ricardo. Ricardo
says Gabi will be at the party and Antonio says if she is busy then let it go.

THE HOTEL PROJECT

saying goodbye to Antonio. AJ told her she can leave early if she wants to
go to Antonio's goodbye party. Gabi says she doesn't have to go because they
have said their good-byes. Gabi agrees that the project should move smoothly.
Gerard arrives and told AJ he is needed elsewhere. When AJ leaves Gerard
asks Gabi how she likes her job. Gabi says it should be great. Gerard's
wife, Karen arrives with lunch. Outside Gerard asks if she has found out
anything about Gabi. Karen says only that she spent the night with Ricardo
Torres. Gerard says if she is a plant then she will be sorry.
Cole asks Annie why she is so upset about the death of Dr. Brock. He also
voices his suspicions about his suicide. Annie says that she is only
protecting Gregory from reminders of losing his son. Cole says it doesn't add
up because Gregory would not be that protective of her. Annie says the whole
thing was Olivia's fault for getting drunk and losing the baby. Cole says
things don't add up. After she leaves Cole says he won't stop the search
because that baby could be alive and his.
When Francesca arrives in her room Olivia is waiting for her. Olivia and
Francesca immediately start having words. Olivia says everything can be
settled if she leaves town forever. Olivia told Francesca that Cole had an
affair with Bette. Francesca laughs at that idea. Olivia says that if she
breathes a word to Caitlin and breaks up her marriage to Cole, he will never
speak to her. Francesca is upset at the possibility. Olivia told her to give
up and leave town. Olivia starts to stroll out of the room and tells
Francesca she will fit in with the EURO-Trash. Francesca told Olivia she can
pretend with her accent all she wants but she invented the word because it
describes her. Francesca also told Olivia that before she leaves town without
Cole she will make sure that Caitlin knows that her mother slept with her
husband. Olivia turns around and told her that she will KILL HER if she does
anything to hurt her daughter.
Bette is at the door listening. Olivia told her she would kill her in a heartbeat. After more words are exchanged, Olivia
goes for Francesca's throat. Bette rushes in to stop the fight. Francesca can't
believe that Cole could possibly love Caitlin that much. Before Bette drags
Olivia out of the room she told Francesca they have undying love and that Cole
had just used her like so many others. Outside the room, Bette fusses at
Olivia for threatening to kill Francesca. Inside the room Francesca calls Gregory
and agrees to their deal.
Ricardo asks about her new assignment. Gabi says that she thinks she can
break the case in 2 days. Ricardo says he can't figure out why Carmen
suspects Gabi of seeing another man. Gabi says that he shouldn't have asked
him to stay. Gabi explains that Antonio is a priest and he is needed in
Guatemala. She says that he should start acting like a priest again. Ricardo
ask what she means by that and she says he has been acting more as a family
peacemaker then a priest. Ricardo doesn't buy this lie.
Gregory calls the doctor to tell him to do more tests. Caitlin walks in to
hear Gregory telling Dr. Manning
that maybe this time they can have an alternative course of action. Caitlin
assumes that Gregory is sick. Gregory told her that he only has high blood.
Bette tries to get Caitlin to talk about why she isn't happy. Caitlin said
Francesca. Caitlin admits that she makes her nervous although Cole loves her.
Gregory interrupts their conversation. Gregory asks Caitlin if Francesca is
still bothering her. He says with one telephone call he can get rid of her.
Caitlin refuses the offer.
Annie arrives with the newspaper in hand and told Gregory that Cole has been
asking too many questions. Annie told him that he has been suspicious since
seeing Caitlin in the alley with $1Mil. Annie tries to seduce Gregory. It
appears to be working until he told her that he can pay for those types of
favors. He says that the only reason they are still together is so people
won't ask questions. After Annie leaves, she tries to figure out how to get
Gregory back on her side.
Olivia is upset at the fact that Francesca has the nerve to accuse her of
sleeping with Cole. Bette reminds her that she did. Olivia repeats again
that she will kill Francesca if she hurts Caitlin.
Gregory told employees that he hopes they have been giving Trey the
enthusiastic ohhhhs and ahhhhs he deserves. He says nothing is too good for
the future CEO of the company. Cole arrives and as Gregory flashes back to
thoughts of Cole and Olivia he breaks a pencil. Cole told Caitlin that he
can't have lunch with her but he will make it up to her tonight. Gregory
talks to Dr. Manning and asks him to recheck his test. The Dr. agrees with
the new findings that Trey will be his son.
Franny secretly puts cameras all over AJ's office so that they will be able to
catch all the X-rated scenes she plans to make for Olivia's benefit. As she
