Today's recap was provided by Jennymc.
Sharon and Ryan continue their confrontation about Sharon's accusations
that Tricia deliberately killed Tony. Angrily, Ryan insists that his
wife is incapable of murder. But Sharon maintains her stance that Tricia
knew what she was doing when she ran over Tony. She tells Ryan that
surely, he too, must have doubts about his wife and her state of mind.
But Ryan admits that he had, but that Tricia had pulled herself together
after New Year's Eve -- for Megan's sake. He tells Sharon he just doesn't
want to hear anymore, and angrily sweeps out.
In Victoria's office, she and Nick anxiously await news of the search
warrant for Ross's apartment. The phone rings, and Paul tells them that
the search yielded no evidence -- no computer, no typewriter, no
stationery. But Paul is convinced that between the time he left the jail
and the time the cops and Paul arrived for the search, Ross had plenty
of time to get rid of anything incriminating. Victoria and Nick are
upset that there is still no proof that Ross is the stalker.
Meanwhile, Gary phones to get his messages and gets word that Victoria
has been trying to reach him. He then returns to his computer and
continues typing his "fan letter" to Victoria.
Michael and Christine arrive to inspect their new business premises,
where workmen are busy getting the empty offices in shape. Michael tells
Christine that she can choose any furniture, art work, oriental rugs
that she wants, from a selection of catalogs he has placed in the drawer
of her temporary desk. "You're a managing partner now," he tells her.
Christine calls Paul's office and asks Lynne to have Paul call her as
soon as possible. When Michael reappears with a box of files from
Desmond Industries, Chris tells him she'll look through them, and then
they can discuss that and getting new customers after she's reviewed the
documents. He mentions that he noticed she'd called Paul, and she
angrily tells him that her personal life is strictly off limits to him.
Neil arrives at Olivia's apartment with groceries, telling her she has
to keep her strength up. He also has a picture for her from Lily, which
tips off Olivia that he has seen Dru. Neil admits he met with Dru, and
tells Olivia that her sister is getting really suspicious about what is
being kept from her. Eventually he tells Olivia that Dru believes the
secret involves a relationship between him and Olivia. She suspects
something about your illness too, he warns, but added that he
stonewalled her. Olivia is adamant that there is no need to tell Dru
anything. "But you have to find out if she's a match," Neil insists. "If
she's not then you can get started on looking for another match." But
Olivia doesn't want to do that. "If she's a match, she will be, if not
... " Neil says he will reassure Dru that there's no romance going on.
After declining Olivia's invitation to dinner, he leaves to return to
the office. As he leaves, Reese arrives. Olivia tells him her gums were
bleeding. He is concerned, and tells her she will need another
transplant of platelets; the drug therapy isn't working. Having heard
Neil's parting words, he begs her to let Dru in on the problem. "Don't
let professional detachment or family emotions cloud your judgment," he
Meanwhile, at Malcolm's apartment, Mamie is putting some soothing lotion
on Lily, and she and Dru warn Lily not to scratch! Lily trots off to go
and read while Mamie wishes that Dru could visit family more often. "Not
everyone feels like that," Dru replies with a pout. She tells Mamie that
Olivia seems to be in a big hurry to see her leave again, and that she
suspects that Olivia and Neil are involved. Mamie can't believe that,
and Mamie advises Dru to open up to Neil and get the issues out in the
open before it's too late.
Gary shows up at Victoria's office and innocently asks what's going on,
and how did Ross make bail? Paul arrives, still frustrated and angry at
the fruitless search at Ross's place. Then he turns to Ross -- "You were
talking to Ross before he made bail! Care to explain?" Gary says he went
there to try to get information from Ross. Paul is furious that the two
stalker suspects are still walking free. He asks Gary to make a list of
people who night have raised the bail money -- Ross's family, friends or
associates. Gary readily agrees. Paul leaves and Nick has to go back to
work, asking Gary to stay with Victoria.
Megan argues with Tricia -- telling her that she really needs to get some
professional help and can't understand why she can't talk to Ryan about
her troubles with Sharon. But Tricia excitedly interrupts her with the
news that their father has invited her to visit him in London. "I really
need to get away," she tells her sister. "I can talk to him, he'll
listen and understand." She is so excited, and Megan thinks it may be a
good idea. "Why don't you come too?" Tricia asks. Megan considers for a
moment, then agrees, much to Tricia's joy. Ryan returns home and Tricia
tells him her decision about the trip. As she rushes to the phone to
make airline reservations, a concerned Ryan urgently questions Megan in
a hushed voice. "She needs help," Megan says. The stress of Sharon's
accusations are making her fall apart, they agree. Tricia happily tells
them she just got the last two tickets on a flight to London.
Sharon shows up at the police station again to talk to Det. Lacerra, and
again voices her suspicions about Tricia. Lacerra is doubtful, and asks
Sharon what proof she has. When Sharon tells him what Tony told her
about New Year's Eve, and stresses how much Tricia hated Tony. But
that's not enough for the detective. "That's all hearsay," he tells her.
She mentions that Grace also knew what was going on, but that she's in
New York now. "So you have no proof," Lacerra tells her. Sharon is
disappointed at his reaction, then suddenly remembers something about
Tricia! "Wait a minute, she DID know that he was coming," she tells the
After Paul and Nicholas leave, Victoria tells Gary all about the
profiler who's been consulted and gives him her take on the stalker.
"He's someone who has to live a fantasy life because he cannot keep a
relationship with a real woman," she tells him. As she talks more about
her stalker, she gets more and more emotional and upset. Gary tells her
he's so happy she can confide in him, and they hug. "I'm so grateful
you're around," she tells him, as he gently strokes her hair, a relieved
expression on his face.

Upon accepting an invitation from Desmond, Michael and Christine head to
Chicago. Christine calls Paul to inform him of her travel plans, but, still
upset over the situation, Paul decides not to call his wife back. Later,
Mary pays him a visit and reminds him that Christine is just doing what is
best for her career and that he needs to get over his own personal feelings
and offer her some support. Elsewhere, Tricia is ready to leave town when
she is stopped by a detective who has come to question her. At the same
time, Sharon tells Nick that she has gone to the police about Tricia and her
involvement in Tony's death. Not sure his wife has made the best decision,
Nick suggests that she just accept the decision of the police to rule the
tragedy and accident. Later, Nick signs the lease to open another Crimson
Lights in Milwaukee. Tomas meets with Nina and tells her that he's
suffering from writer's block. Nina offers her help and he asks if he can
come over to her place and cook dinner for her. Over at Newman, Neil informs
Victor that Jack took the bait and has decided to expand the Jabot line
nationally. In the meantime, Jack celebrates his latest move while Jill and
Ashley remain skeptical and worry about the balloon payment that is almost
due. After they leave, Frank comes in and tells Jack that they are in
Wednesday, April 5, 2000
Jill questions if Ashley agreed with Jack out of family loyalty. She assures Jill that she didn't but she is concerned about Victor, wondering if he will retaliate against Jack. Jill, however, has no
remorse about what happened to Victor and is only concerned about the huge loan payment they have to pay in May. Ashley leaves and goes to visit Victor and asks how things are with Victoria. Victor tells her that they thought things were under control, but now they are not. He tells her that he knows this is not the only reason she came to visit him. She then tells him about Jabot's expansion and he tells her that he already knows. They agree to not let business interfere with their friendship. In Jack's office, Jack shows loan officer Frank a copy of Jabot's expansion plans. After much prompting from Jack, Frank finally agrees to present Jabot's loan to the board of directors for an extension. However, at the same time, Victor receives a call, while Ashley is in his office, from his friend, Alan, that he has secured the Jabot loan and that Frank will not be told anything about it.
After he hangs up, Ashley comments that he has obviously managed a "cue;" he tells her, no, he's just setting things right again. He then asks Ashley out to dinner and they
At school, Billy picks up some yearbook photos and takes one of Mac, hiding it when she walks in. He tells her that he is still grounded. They begin to talk but are interrupted by Raul who tells
them that he has an idea. He tells them that he wants to go rent some movies so he and Mac can come over to his house, if they can get Billy's parents permission. Brittany walks in; uncomfortable, Raul and Mac leave. She inquires about Billy being grounded and he tells her that he still is. She tells him that she hopes he isn't by next weekend. He assures her that he will probably be grounded until summer. Obviously upset, Brittany tells Billy that she'll accept
whatever time with him she can get.
Later at the coffee house, Brittany is sitting with J.T., observed by Raul and Mac. He tells her that he hopes she doesn't let the fact that Billy is grounded prevent her from having any fun. He will
always be a willing participant. Angrily, she tells him to shut up. She then says she has an idea on how she can help Billy. Knowing that Billy needs Brittany in his life because he can't have her, Mac suggests to Raul that they invite Brittany along when they visit Billy.
Raul doesn't want to but Mac tells him that Billy needs her.
Nina and Tomas are enjoying a romantic and playful dinner. Jokingly, Tomas questions, since he's never seen Phillip, if she really has a son. She tells him that whenever something fun or wonderful happens in her life, she wishes Phillip was there to share it with her. He tells her that she is a wonderful mother and wonders if she wants more children. Suddenly upset, she tells Tomas to drop it. (Nina is obviously thinking of the child that was stolen from her a long time
ago.) Tomas attempts to get her to open up but she tells him that they both have their secrets and they should just keep it that way.
Almost having to force himself in the house, and after Megan says she wants to hear what the detective has to say, the detective questions Tricia about her dislike of Tony and if she tried to
break Tony and Megan up. Tricia lies and tells him that even though she disliked Tony and didn't think he was right for her sister because of their different backgrounds, she had come to accept his relationship with Megan. She was on her way to their wedding when the accident happened, carefully omitting the fact that she was planning to stop the wedding. He questions her about her relationship with Grace and the "panty" incident. She again lies and tells him that Grace planted the bra because she wanted Tony back. He asks her if Grace will collaborate her story. She says that Grace is a liar and would probably say anything. He also questions her about the "kiss" on New Years Eve and she also lies that it ever happened. Tricia is obviously upset and after Ryan intervenes, telling the detective that if he has any more questions, Tricia will only answer more questions with a lawyer present, the detective leaves. After he leaves, Tricia, more than ready to leave to see her father, tells Megan to hurry or they'll miss their flight. Megan,
however, adamantly tells Tricia that she is not going. After she leaves, Tricia still plans to go. However, Ryan, who is very angry with everything he's heard, tells her that now more than ever
he knows she needs professional help. He reminds her that she told him once that she had done some things that she was ashamed of to break up Megan and Tony. Ryan tells her that he does not want her to go and if she does, he will not be there for her when she returns. Later, when her father calls, she tells him that she's not coming and before he can question her, she tells him she has to go and hangs up.

Friday, April 7THT, 2000
While Victor mulls over the kiss he and Ashley shared the previous evening,
Diane places a phone call to the sperm bank and asks them to ship his frozen
sperm to the clinic. Later, as Jack and Ashley have breakfast together,
Victor shows up. He and Ashley share a brief exchange leaving Jack worried
that his sister is getting romantic with her former lover again. Meanwhile,
Brad continues to show an enthused Nikki all of the different things she can
do online....including making stock purchases. Over at Crimson Lights,
Sharon meets with Christine and tells her about her suspicions about Tricia.
When Michael arrives, Sharon goes back to work. After she is gone, Christine
calls a friend of hers at the police station. Listening to her conversation,
an upset Michael learns that the case concerning Tony's death has been
reopened. At the same time, Ryan and a very reluctant Tricia prepare for her
first meeting with the psychiatrist. Ryan tries to convince his wife that
he's not making her go because of Sharon's accusations...he believes she's
needed to seek help for quite some time. As the two head out, they are
greeted at the door by Tricia's father, Keith, who isn't happy to learn that
his daughter is headed to see a shrink. Elsewhere, Mac and Raul go to John
and ask him if he will let up on Billy's punishment a bit and let them visit
him. John agrees to think it over, but tells them that Brittany is not to be
included. When they arrive at school, Billy tells Brittany what happened and
she tells him about her not-so-successful meeting with his mother. She tells
him that she doesn't think she got anywhere but that she was touched to hear
that he told Jill how much he cares about her. She thanks him with a kiss as
a jealous Mac looks on. When Billy sees Mac, he pulls away from Brittany and
tells her he has to head to class. After he is gone, J.T. confronts Brittany
and asks her what she sees in Billy. He warns her that it's not good for her
reputation to be hanging out with losers like Mac, Raul and Billy.
