Monday, November 3, 2003

At the fashion show, everyone seems to be wondering to where Marah ran, and they begin to chant her name. She eventually steps out onto the stage with Jonathan, known as Sandy, right behind her. Some reporters jump in and begin questioning Marah in regards to her relationship with Sandy (Jonathan). Marah tries to avoid all of their questions, but the reporters press for a picture of her and Sandy (Jonathan) together. She gives them one quick snap shot, but then she rushes out. Jonathan follows and tries to explain that he didn't mean to hurt anyone. He just came to town to learn about his mother, but he ended up staying because of Marah. Marah is disgusted at how sick and perverted it is in regards to her having had romantic feelings for her brother. She is even more disgusted that Sandy never told her that he was Jonathan and that they were related the second he knew that her feelings for him have changed. She tells him that she thought Tony made her feel bad about herself, and continues to explain that he just made her feel a million times worse. Marah wonders why he waited until tonight to tell her the news. He explains that he wanted to wait until after the show because it was so important to her. He continues to explain that he was just going to skip town, but Reva stopped him. Marah instantly gets upset when she learns that her mother knew this too and didn't tell her. Reva is in the background and has overheard Marah express her disappointment toward her mother. Jonathan tries to explain that he made her wait because of the show. Marah runs out on both of them and sarcastically welcomes Jonathan to the family. Jonathan tells Reva to go after Marah.

Backstage, Michelle finds a chair that was in her home. A note from the mysterious woman was attached for Michelle telling her that this chair doesn't belong in her home due to the fact that her family and friends are mistreating it. She tells her in the note that it is better suited in an abandoned building.

Josh begins to question Reva about Marah because he sensed that something was wrong with her after the show. When Bill interrupts, Reva skips out on the conversation. Bill explains to Josh that he is on his way to the office tonight. Josh, feeling like he has been taking advantage of Bill since he hasn't been in the office lately, explains that he has hired someone to fill a position a step above Bill to help out. Bill is upset that he wasn't given the position since he knows his way around the business.

Josh and Jonathan run into one another, and Josh questions him about why Marah was upset tonight. Jonathan tells him that he has something to tell him, and it starts with an apology. He tells Josh that he lied to his entire family and begins to explain. Jonathan asks for Josh's understanding. Josh tells him that Reva may be more understanding about this, but because he is not his son, he doesn't have to understand.

Back at the museum, Marina and Shayne begin physical therapy, but it is interrupted when Reva shows up looking for Marah. Since Marah isn't there, Reva decides that now is the time to explain Jonathan to Shayne. She tells him that Jonathan has been living in Springfield, and continues to explain that Sandy is Jonathan. Shayne says a word: "How?" Reva is excited that Shayne is able to talk, but Shayne wants her to tell him more about Jonathan. She continues to tell Shayne that she asked Jonathan to stay and hopes that he understands.

Outside the fashion show, it appears as though Nico has been stabbed. He's bent over, holding his stomach, which appears to be bleeding. Danny steps outside, but Nico's back is turned towards Danny and he is unaware of Nico's condition. Danny begins to make telephone calls on his cell. After his call, he tries to invite Nico to a celebration dinner. Danny begins to head back in to find Michelle, but he runs into Tony on the way. Danny instantly tries to involve Tony in his business plans. Tony says that he will be staying in town, but he has his own plans. Danny begins to look around for Nico to introduce him to Tony but finds him passed out on the floor. Tony calls for an ambulance, and before long, they arrive. Michelle finds them, and offers to ride along in the ambulance to assist the paramedics. Tony offers to stick around and try to find out who did this and wants to do it his way. Danny accepts and heads off to the hospital himself.

Eden understands that Bill had a sense of power with all the big shots out of the office, and now it is being taken away. Bill thinks that the position should have been given to him. Eden tells Bill to take charge of the situation and do what he thinks is right. She tells him to talk to Billy about it because he has a way with Josh.

At the Spaulding mansion, Phillip is yelling at his private investigator's office in regards to their lack of informing him of their daily findings. Alan question Phillip about the pressure he is under and asks that maybe he take some time off work for a while. Later, Alan meets Gus and Harley, and he asks them to talk to Phillip. Not much later, Harley and Gus coincidentally run into Phillip and pretend they want to talk about their son. Phillip instantly gets defensive and assumes they did not hunt him down to talk about their son. Harley then begins to question whether he has heard from Olivia. Phillip tells her that he hasn't heard from her and assumes that she has already had his baby. Phillip doesn't seem to be in the mood for chitchat, and he quickly heads into another direction.

Tammy interrupts their conversation and asks if she can meet Joey. She and Joey want to audition for a play. It sounds as though she is only trying out for a part so that someone else won't get a love scene with her boyfriend. She doesn't seem to be as interested in the play - "Romeo and Juliet." She doesn't quite understand the language. Edmund jumps in and helps her understand a line in the play that she had previously mocked. She begins to look at the play in another light. Cassie instantly invites Edmund to help her with the play, and he accepts. Before they begin practicing lines, Edmund decides to tell the Romeo and Juliet story in his own words which helps Tammy to understand and to gain a great deal of interest into the storyline. Before Tammy leaves to meet Joey, she thanks Edmund and tells him that if she gets the part, it will be because of him. Tammy meets Joey, and they end up arguing because Joey doesn't perceive the play in the manner that Tammy now does.

Lizzie intercepts a telephone call from the Private Investigator while Phillip steps out of the room. It sounds as though they have found Olivia. The Investigator doesn't want to give Lizzie that information but asks for Lizzie to have her father call them back. When Phillip re-enters the room, Lizzie purposely doesn't tell him. Moments later, Christopher shows up to begin their regular session. Christopher begins to talk about how people are beginning to trust her again. Once he starts to discuss this topic, Lizzie suddenly has a stomachache and wants to know whether they can finish their session another time. Christopher tells her that would be fine, and maybe they can discuss at that time, why her stomachache began once he started to discuss people trusting her. Once Lizzie leaves the room, Christopher wants to have a private discussion with Phillip. Phillip assumes that it is about Lizzie, but Christopher informs him that it is about him. Lizzie is listening in from the hallway while Christopher is talking to Phillip about the distraction he is reading from him. Phillip tells him that the distraction may be because he has a daughter out there that is due to be born any day, and he doesn't know where the mother is, and the private investigator isn't doing his job. Later, as Phillip is sitting at the table reading the paper, Lizzie enters the room. Phillip looks at her and sees the grown daughter that he had with Olivia. He tells Lizzie to please not go because he wants to know so much about her and explains that her mother wouldn't allow him to see her when she was little. Lizzie gets Phillip to come back around and he apologizes to her. Lizzie then tells Phillip about the phone call from earlier when she got a call from the private investigator. Phillip hugs her and tells her that this is great news. Phillip instantly gets on the telephone in hopes that Olivia is on her way home.

Bill shows up at Danny's for a business meeting. Danny asks about the new employee in charge at Lewis Construction.

After the meeting, Michelle and Danny are discussing Bill's need to mark his territory with Buddy Carroll.

It's a busy day for Reva. Her day begins with Alan inviting himself to her table at Company. He knows about Sandy and, seeing how he thinks they're kindred spirits, he's come to give her advice on how to handle the situation. Bottom line, don't push Sandy, let him come to her. Reva is amused but appreciative of the new warm and fuzzy Alan.

Josh starts his day in the Beacon's bar. He's getting ready to check out of the Beacon and return home to Reva (unbeknownst to her). Billy arrives and is displeased that, once again, Josh is the one doing all the reaching out. He clearly thinks that Reva is leading Josh around by the nose, as she has all her life. Josh refuses to take Billy's advice and points out that the last time he did, he put flowers on someone's grave. The mystery surrounding Billy, Josh, Alan, Buzz and Ed's relation to the mystery grave deepens.

Fresh off her talk with Alan, Reva runs into a distraught Sandy. He feels terrible about Marah and awkward around Reva. Reva tries to give Sandy distance per Alan's advice, but she does end up giving him a key to her house. Every kid should have a key to his-or-her parents' house.

Meanwhile, Shayne surprises Marina by speaking a whole sentence. The two grow even closer.

Alan and Gus pull one over on Harley. Her surveillance job for Alan was really a ruse for Gus to orchestrate a romantic evening for them at a boutique inn. She's initially irked that he resorted to trickery, but the gourmet meal, champagne and chocolate-covered strawberries that he's arranged for get to her. They settle in for the night.

Reva arrives at the museum to talk with Marah. Reva needs Marah to forgive Sandy so they can all move on. But, like mother like daughter, Marah needs time to pass before she can dispense forgiveness.

Fast on Reva's heels comes Sandy. He, too, needs to talk with Marah. He needs forgiveness, she needs time, etc. Sandy gives Marah The Mole puppet, stating that The Mole could always find the words that he, Sandy, never could.

Reva seeks out Josh at the Beacon. At first they bond, commiserating over the family's situation. However, Reva takes a phone call from Christopher, and it's clear to Josh that Reva told Christopher the news about Sandy before she told him. Josh is hurt that Reva would do such a thing, while she becomes angry that Josh doesn't understand why she sought out an impartial, confidential third-party (Christopher) to discuss the situation. She also points out that Sandy wanted to break the news to the Marah and Josh himself. The two part on a bitter note, and Josh arranges to continue his stay at the Beacon.

Marah goes to meet the winning bidder of a Marah Lewis original. To her shock, she discovers that it's Tony. Meanwhile, Marina has a ghostly encounter with Carrie at Company. Carrie's parting words leaves us with the impression that heartbreak is around the corner for Marina.
