Dec 29, 2014    

At the sound of the buzzer, Matt reached for the doorknob. It was Donna who grabbed his wrist, stopping him.

He turned to her in confusion....

“Sorry we’re late....

EPISODE #2014-285

Dec 15, 2014    

“Charlie!” Rachel exclaimed, flustered regarding how exactly she should be reacting to the girl who was dating her daughter – but pregnant by her son. Miss Manners hadn’t exactly covered the situation.

“May I come in....

Dec 8, 2014    

“Iris?” Rachel repeated. “Iris was behind Dennis and Daisy’s kidnapping?”

“Iris and....

EPISODE #2014-283

Dec 1, 2014    

“Mom, Charlie is pregnant,” Elizabeth announced to Rachel – and everyone else around Cass and Frankie’s Thanksgiving table. “And Cory is the father.”

For a moment....

EPISODE #2014-282

Nov 24, 2014    

Olivia opened her mouth to explain. Iris opened her mouth to deny. But it was too little to late. For both of them.

Dennis merely glared....

EPISODE #2014-281

Nov 17, 2014    

“You lied to your mother for me,” Lorna stood facing Jamie after Rachel had left. She took both his hands in hers and kissed first the back of one palm, then the other. “Why did you tell her you knew what Carl had written me, and that I’d gone to see him before he died?”


EPISODE #2014-280

Nov 10, 2014    

“Do you think it’s true?” Matt kept his voice neutral and supportive as, in the aftermath of Carl’s will reading, he and Donna sat in the car, Carl’s letter in her lap all but glowing and vibrating with his claim that Michael was still alive.

Donna shook her head wordlessly from side to side, finally managing to summon up the obvious, “It’s Carl....

EPISODE #2014-279

Nov 3, 2014    

Once all of the invited guests had been assembled and accounted for, Carl’s attorney – the one in charge of his personal dealings, not his criminal defense, and thus not nearly as well-known – began to read.

“I, Carl Hutchins, being of sound mind and body.....

EPISODE #2014-278

Oct 27, 2014    

“Alice called you? I should have known.” Rachel snorted at the sight of Jamie showing up in front of the morgue, where his mother had taken up seemingly permanent residence in her attempt to keep Carl’s body from being autopsied.

“She was worried.....

EPISODE #2014-277

Oct 20, 2014    

Dennis waited for Marley to finish her shower.

Eventually, she came out of the bathroom.....

EPISODE #2014-276

Oct 13, 2014    

At the sound of Rachel’s scream, Jamie dropped the jacket he’d been in the process of putting on and rushed to her side.

His mother was standing.....

EPISODE #2014-275

Oct 6, 2014    

“Marley!” Dennis all but dropped Olivia into the sand as he leapt to his feet and went running across the beach. “Oh, my God, Marley!”

He swept her up in his arms.....

EPISODE #2014-274

Sept 29, 2014    

“I have something important to tell you,” Carl strained to make Rachel feel his sincerity despite the prison issue glass partition between them. “It may sound odd at first, but, I beg of you, please hear me out. This is something I feel I must do, and it concerns you, most of all.”

Rachel braced herself.....

EPISODE #2014-273

Sept 22, 2014    

“Grant?” Morgan did a double-take. First, to confirm that the presumed dead man was, in fact alive. Again. And second as understanding dawned about what exactly Lila was implying. “You and Grant are....

EPISODE #2014-272

Sept 15, 2014    

“Is it true?” Marley demanded of Sarah and Kirkland. “Is Daisy back home? Is Dennis with her?” But before either had the chance to answer, her eyes drifted to settle on… “Grant?” Marley sputtered. “Oh, Jesus Christ, again?”


EPISODE #2014-271

Sept 8, 2014    

As expected, it was Grant at the door. Kirkland let him in and stood aside as his father made a beeline for Sarah.

Grant smiled weakly....

EPISODE #2014-270

Sept 1, 2014    

“Rachel!” Iris trilled, all but stepping between her stepmother and her husband, wrenching Rachel’s hands out of Russ’ and into hers. “Out and about already, are we? What a miracle! Especially considering your advanced age.”

Rachel couldn’t help it. She smiled....

EPISODE #2014-269

Aug 25, 2014    

“Daddy!” Daisy was the first to get over the shock of seeing Grant, alive, seemingly well, and standing in front of the motel room he’d been hiding out in for months. Possibly because she’d never bought that whole “Daddy is gone forever” story Mommy had tried to feed her earlier.


EPISODE #2014-268

Aug 18, 2014    

“Are you in love with Sarah?” Jasmine asked Kirkland as they sat in the front seat of his car in the Cory driveway.

Kirkland opened his mouth....

EPISODE #2014-267

Aug 11, 2014    

“We just wanted to stop by and check how you were,” Jasmine sheepishly told Sarah as she and Kirkland followed Daisy’s mother inside her house. Sarah looked as if she didn’t exactly have the energy for company. But also as if she didn’t have the strength to send them away, either.

“I haven’t heard anything....

EPISODE #2014-266

Aug 4, 2014    

“I know you, Rachel. The only reason you were able to survive the lean years without Jamie adoring you unconditionally – the ones where he dared live his own life with a woman he loved; whether or not you approved – was because you’d trained Carl to fill the same role. But now both are gone. And you’ve got a vacancy to fill. Well,” Donna leaned over to make sure Rachel heard every word. “Not with my husband.”

Her mother-in-law declined to so much as flinch at the accusation. Instead, she asked politely....

EPISODE #2014-265

July 28, 2014    

“What happened?” Lorna took one look at Jamie’s face as he walked through the front door, and understood it had to have been something monumental. “Is Rachel alright?”

He nodded slowly, moving from the door to....

EPISODE #2014-264

July 21, 2014    

“Tell me, Carl!” Rachel raged, snatching the container of medication off her hospital tray and tilting it towards the floor, centimeters away from sending the pills down in a colorful shower of waste. “Tell the truth, or....

EPISODE #2014-263

July 14, 2014    

“Take it easy, Mom,” Jamie warned Rachel after spending an hour just helping her get out of bed, maneuver towards the door of her hospital room and back again, taking plenty of breaks to catch her breath and get her strength back. He balanced Rachel with the elbow of one arm while pulling her IV pole along with his free hand. “You’ve been through major trauma. You can’t....

EPISODE #2014-262

July 7, 2014    

“Any news?” Kirkland anxiously asked Sarah as soon as she hung up the phone with the BCPD. They, along with Marley, had been waiting all night for an update about Dennis and Daisy’s disappearance.

Sarah shook her....

EPISODE #2014-261

June 30, 2014    

“You have got to be kidding me,” Matt sputtered, having received a text from Donna via KBAY-TV. He wordlessly turned his phone towards Jamie and Amanda so that they could read the headline for themselves

“Carl turned himself in....

EPISODE #2014-260

June 23, 2014    

“I have a confession to make,” Carl took a seat across from Toni Burrell’s desk at the police station and indicated that she might want to be taking notes, as he had no interest in repeating himself. “I murdered Chase Hamilton…”

Her expression didn’t flicker. “I’m listening....

EPISODE #2014-259

June 16, 2014    

“Douglas Rivera just lost his partner of twenty-something years,” Frankie reminded when Jamie stopped by her and Cass’ house to relay what Doug had accused them of. “He’s got to be in deep shock. How can you possible take anything he says seriously?”

“The man has nothing left to lose,” Jamie reasoned.


EPISODE #2014-258

June 9, 2014    

“What happened?” Jamie asked Alice after learning from Carl that Chase’s death less than an hour earlier had allowed Rachel to receive a liver transplant, after all. With his mother still in surgery, there wasn’t much Jamie could do for her. So he took advantage of the endless waiting time to pop into Alice’s office to see what else he could find out.

“I’m not certain....

EPISODE #2014-257

June 2, 2014    

Lorna stood in the doorway of Jamie’s study, listening to him make call after call to anyone he could think of who might help arrange for Rachel to get a donor liver before it was too late.

When it seemed like he’d either....

EPISODE #2014-256

May 26, 2014    

“Mom needs a liver transplant?” Amanda, with Matt following right behind appeared in the waiting room just as Morgan broke the news of Rachel’s condition to Jamie and Carl.

“Then what are you waiting for....

EPISODE #2014-255

May 19, 2014    

Alice’s pager went off in the middle of conducting rounds with the Bay City University Hospital medical students, directing Dr. Frame to hurry down to the Emergency Room, stat. A shooting at the park. Multiple victims.

She made it just in time for....

EPISODE #2014-254

May 12, 2014    

“It has been arranged,” Carl reassured Rachel, hanging up his phone. No, not his phone, Rachel noticed. This one appeared to be one she’d never seen before. And doubted she ever would again. “Chase Hamilton will no longer be a thorn in our sides, after today.”


EPISODE #2014-253

May 5, 2014    

“I’m eighteen years old,” Cory reminded Chase and Eduardo as Carl, Rachel and Jamie looked on in horror. “Nineteen, almost. I’ll be nineteen in June. You can’t have my father deciding my fate.  I have a right to make my own decisions.”

“Not when....

EPISODE #2014-252

April 28, 2014    

“Big day,” Doug observed between handing first Milagros, then Ike, their breakfasts as Chase entered the kitchen, reaching for coffee only and waving away the rest. As if he needed any reminders, Doug noted, “Carl Hutchins is turning himself in.”


EPISODE #2014-251

April 21, 2014    

Grant took a step forward, unable to stand seeing Sarah near collapse at the thought of his death.


EPISODE #2014-250

April 14, 2014    

“Fancy running into you, here,” Olivia drawled Dennis’ way, making sure to keep her voice down so they couldn’t be overheard.

“I’m here for....

EPISODE #2014-249

April 7, 2014    

“Finally made up your mind, have you, Mr. Hutchins?” Chase drawled, joining Toni in meeting Carl and Rachel at the main Bay City Police Station, upon the latter’s request.

“You hardly left me much choice in the matter....

EPISODE #2014-248

Mar 31, 2014    

Chase informed Carl, “I spoke with Eduardo prior to coming over here. I have been authorized by the Justice Department, to drop all charges against your son – in exchange for you, Mr. Hutchins, pleading guilty to every single one of your crimes, going back forty years. So. What do you say?”

Rachel gasped....

EPISODE #2014-247

Jan 27, 2014     Part #1

Amanda didn’t know precisely where she intended to go upon flying out of the Harrison house after Kevin told her he didn’t think he’d be able to forgive her deliberately hurting Jen.

Truth was....

Jan 30, 2014     Part #2

“Mr. Hutchings, Mrs. Hutchins,” Toni Burrell said, looking from Carl and Rachel to Jamie and Lorna as she stood in the Cory foyer. “We received a phone call down at the station. It was a confession of attempted murder. Your attempted murder, sir. And it came from this house.”

While everyone absorbed the news....

EPISODE #2014-246

Jan 23, 2014     Whole Episode

Despite a host of misgivings, Rachel realized she couldn’t stand it any longer. She had to know, once and for all, if something was going on between Carl and Lorna.

And so, when she heard the voices behind Lorna’s door; one male, one female, neither of them exactly having a dispassionate chat about the weather, Rachel threw common sense....

EPISODE #2014-245

Jan 13, 2014     Part #1

“I am talking about Steven being the one to get your father killed,” Amanda took some measure of satisfaction in telling Jen. After the way both she and her high and mighty husband had refused to help Allie, it was the least they deserved. “And Kevin deciding to go to prison in his place!”

“Damn it....

Jan 16, 2014     Part #2

Rachel spent most of the evening at Jamie’s house talking to Felicia about the possibility of Lucas being Carl’s shooter. After the initial shock wore off, Felicia had been forced to concede that....

Jan 6, 2014     Part #1

“It’s a good thing Morgan isn’t an OB,” Russ informed his daughter as a horrified Olivia lay in her hospital bed, staring up at him mutely. “Because, if he were, as Chief of Staff, I’d be very worried. Especially since he diagnosed a miscarriage… when you were never pregnant in the first place.”

She swallowed hard. “Daddy....

“Is that why you tried to murder my husband in cold blood?” An incensed Rachel demanded of Donna.

Who merely laughed and....

Dec 30, 2013     Part #1

“She pushed me!” Olivia curled pitifully into a fetal ball at the bottom of the church stairs, moaning in pain but still managing to point a finger upwards. “Marley pushed me! She tried to kill my baby!”

The last accusation seemed to....

Jan 2, 2014     Part #2

“Morgan said you were up to having visitors,” Jamie peeked around the examining room curtain and addressed the hospital bed where Olivia was now lying.

She nodded weakly, attempting....


Dec 23, 2013     Part #1

“Can you believe Marley’s nerve?” Olivia huffed as she slammed the passenger side door of Jamie’s car behind her. “Dragging people out of the house on Christmas Day to watch her get married for – which number time is this?”

Jamie checked his rearview mirror before backing out of the driveway, then observed....

“That’s the last of them,” Olivia cheerfully told Devon and Mackenzie as the two little girls huffed and puffed up and down the stairs, depositing the bags Olivia had brought into her new room at Jamie’s house.

The pair were so giddy at the notion of Olivia coming for....

Dec 9, 2013     Part #1

“If you had the evidence to arrest my wife,” Jamie informed Toni through clenched teeth as she stood on his doorstep. “You would have come with a warrant. Since you didn’t, I know you’re just fishing. So, no, Chief Burrell, you may not come in.”

Toni’s expression didn’t flicker....

Dec 12, 2013     Part #2

“Where is everyone?” Jamie asked after returning to the hospital waiting area and finding only Rachel there.

“Amanda had some emergency....

EPISODE #2013-239

Dec 2, 2013     Part #1

Rachel didn’t hear the shot. At least, she didn’t think she did. All Rachel knew was that she’d woken up with a start. And that she knew something was wrong.

She flew out of bed, pulling on a robe....

Dec 5, 2013     Part #2

“You saw Lorna shoot Carl?” Jamie grabbed Rachel by the arm and whipped her around to face him, ignoring Toni’s follow up questions and the shock of his brothers and sisters. This was between him and Rachel.


EPISODE #2013-238

Nov 25, 2013     238 - Thanksgiving

“Goodness, Cory.” Rachel looked up from making sure every aspect of the Thanksgiving table setting was perfect. “Hurry and get dressed. Our guests will be here any minute.”

“We have actual guests....

Nov 18, 2013     Part 1

“And what might this be?” Carl looked up from where he’d been sitting in his chair as Rachel handed him a flat rectangular box about the size of an envelope, complete with a festive ribbon on top. “It is much too early for a Christmas gift. Despite what the money-hungry retailers with their gauche bits of greenery scattered about might think.”


Nov 21, 2013     Part #2

“No,” Jamie said.

Followed by Lorna’s “Hell, no....

“Carl has been telling the truth all along,” Matt repeated for perhaps the tenth time since he and Donna received their information, each incarnation coming out more and more gloomily. “Iris really did....

Nov 14, 2013     Part #2

“May I… come in?” Felicia’s hesitation, her downright fear of being sent away, stabbed at Lorna’s heart with such ferocity, it was all she could do to keep her expression neutral as she let her mother into the house. “How are you, Lorna?”

“Fine.” Lorna hoped....

EPISODE #2013-235

Nov 4, 2013     Part 1

“So,” Lorna began casually after Jamie had gotten home from work, eaten dinner with her and the girls, and put Devon and Zee to bed (they still weren’t too keen on Lorna doing it alone). “Olivia dropped by to see me today.”

Jamie let out a low whistle under his breath. “Sorry. I was hoping to....

“Am I supposed to kiss the bride now?” Kirkland asked Sarah as she stood near the modest wedding cake at her and Grant’s impromptu reception in Chase’s office, passing out plates to their handful of guests, including....

EPISODE #2013-234

Oct 28, 2013     Part 1

“Jamie?” Marley repeated Olivia’s claim, her tone stuck between incredulous and… something else. “You’re pregnant with Jamie’s baby?”

Olivia nodded....

Oct 31, 2013     Part #2

“Hi,” Olivia was still debating the wisdom of her spontaneous visit, yet forcing herself to follow through nonetheless, even as Lorna opened the door to her and Jamie’s home. “Hello,” Jamie’s wife greeted Olivia coolly, if not exactly antagonistically.


EPISODE #2013-233

Oct 21, 2013     Part 1

“Are you unwell, my dear?” Carl asked Rachel solicitously the next morning, after what had rather noticeably been a most unrestful night’s sleep on her part.

She stifled a yawn behind her palm, shaking her head in an attempt to clear it, but merely succeeding in exhausting herself further. “I couldn’t stop thinking about Elizabeth. And...

“We came to get Lorna’s things,” Jamie informed Carl and Rachel tersely as all four of them stood in the Cory foyer. “She’s moving in with me and the girls.”

“Moving in…” Rachel’s head swiveled Lorna’s way. “Does that mean....

Sept 23, 2013     Part 1

Dennis waited until after Iris had gone flying out of his apartment upon hearing that Sarah and Grant were ostensibly back together to turn towards Marley, still sitting naked in his bed, wrapped in only a sheet to observe, “So that’s why you came to me. Because Grant went back to Sarah.”

“Not at all,” she swore. “I don’t know anything about....

Sept 26, 2013     Part #2

“What can I do for you, Mr. Winthrop?” Chase barely looked up from the stacks of paperwork on his desk, briefly making eye contact with Cass before diving back in.


EPISODE #2013-228

Sept 16, 2013     Part 1

“Marley….” Dennis’ mouth opened and closed not unlike a goldfish’s at the sight of her standing on his doorstep, looking positively ready to burst. He hadn’t seen or so much as spoken to her since the… slip-up… with Olivia, and Dennis had been hoping for....

Sept 19, 2013     Part #2

“Hello, darling,” Iris brushed Dennis’ cheek with her lips, already on the way into his apartment. “I was in the neighborhood and thought I’d drop by to see how….”

Aug 19, 2013     Part 1

“What are you going to do?” Amanda demanded of Olivia – after the latter had walked in on Sam’s ex-wife and Lorna’s ex-husband in a most… picturesque position on the floor of his apartment.

“It was never about me,” Marley told Dennis, her eyes dry, her voice hollow, her entire, stoic visage suggesting she’d be a fool to expect anything different. “Even when a man tries to kill me, I’m not the one he’s after.”

“Is that what Lucas....

“Isn’t this thrilling?” Donna trilled to Matt as they followed a suitcase-laden bellboy into their hotel room in Switzerland.  Donna thrust open the curtains and gazed rapturously upon the city of Zurich.  “Cass and Frankie believe they have the market cornered on romantic sleuthing expeditions.  And look at us now!  We’ll give them a run for their money!”

Though thrilled to see Donna so happy....

“Call him off,” Lorna ordered Carl upon finally catching him alone for the first time in days. Always before, Rachel or one of the kids had been hovering on the periphery, making Lorna feel like the ultimate outsider within their reunited family unit. So what else was new?

“You know there is nothing I wouldn’t do for you, my dear....

“I came to see....

“Why did you tell your guests that you’d known all along about my plan to rescue Lorna, Elizabeth and Cory?” Carl wondered, “Why did you lie for me, Rachel?”


July 11, 2013     Part #2

“So I guess there’s someone you remember, after all,” Amanda observed dryly, walking in on Morgan and Lorna – Lorna! – sharing a laugh in the Cory foyer, neither seemingly harboring a care in the world.

Lorna turned....

July 1, 2013     Part 1

“I know because…” Rachel took a deep breath, bracing herself for their inevitable shock and horror. “Because I was in on Carl’s plan from the start. I understood why he had to take off with Cory, Elizabeth and Lorna. And I gave him my blessing to do it.”

No one moved. No one breathed. Certainly no one spoke....

She’d asked Cass for the truth. And Frankie had gotten it.

Olivia on his lap, her hands on his shoulders, her mouth on his, Jamie allowed her to kiss him. He even kissed her back. But, only for a moment.

“Oh, come on,” Olivia blurted out, looking over her shoulder at Jamie as if this might be some kind of a practical joke. But, judging from the concern on his face in response to Olivia being charged with attempted murder, if this was, in fact, a joke, then Jamie definitely wasn’t in on it.

“I was kidding....

“You’re such an amateur,” Iris drawled to Marley, treating the art gallery now as her own private domain, from which Iris was free to come and go as she wished apparently. “Did you really think you’d be able to get away with it?”

Marley sighed....

From the looks of things, Rachel made it back just in time. Felicia was doing her best to both entice Accord closer and keep him at arm’s length simultaneously, a rather difficult skill, even for the irrepressible Felicia Gallant. Rachel was grateful her friend was taking one for the team, and relieved that wouldn’t be necessary much longer.

“What the hell do you think you’re up to....

“I’m not as bad as Donna or Iris… am I?” Frankie pleaded with Cass after filling him in regarding her conversation with Zeno and what he’d accused her of.

Cass didn’t answer, he merely continued sitting where he was, staring at his wife as if she were a stranger.

“Didn’t this seem easier when we were twelve?” Jamie put down the hammer and sat back on his heels, surveying the tenuous, wooden skeleton of the tree-house he and Dennis were attempting to erect on an unseasonably cold spring afternoon, where every gust of frigid wind shook the entire structure and threatened to send it careening to the ground.

“I think,” Dennis nodded his head thoughtfully. “We....

“I know you didn’t kill Johnson,” Lila told Kevin, even while visiting him in prison for doing precisely that. “And I know that Steven did.”

To his credit, Kevin’s facial expression didn’t flicker. He merely inquired politely, “What makes you say that?”

April 1, 2013     Part #1

“We need to talk,” Russ gamely attempted to interrupt Iris mid-tirade about Daisy, Sarah, Marley, Dennis, Grant… Russ was having trouble keeping all the players straight as she leapt from name to name, subject to subject, perceived insult to perceived insult.

“Let it go, Mom,” Dennis stressed when Iris returned to him yet again, swearing that Marley was out to destroy Sarah’s self-confidence so that she might eventually steal Daisy for herself. “You don’t know Marley, okay? She isn’t like that.”

“Can you think of another explanation for her actions....

“Feeling any better?” Lucas asked Felicia sympathetically after she’d shown up on his doorstep, still so upset from her confrontation with Rachel that she could barely get the words out regarding Chase Hamilton and his request that Felicia file charges against Carl in order to help find Lorna.

“She’s out of her mind.” Felicia shook with fury. “Rachel. It’s as if....

Kirkland studied the infant, then shrugged....

“So did you bring your balls to lunch today?” Lila asked Grant politely as they both took their seats at Tops. “Or are they still in Marley’s purse, where you left them?”

The Scotch Grant had been attempting to swallow all but went out his nose and he needed to snatch up a cloth napkin to cover his mouth while he coughed, “Excuse me....

Jan 28, 2013     Part #1

“Charlie?” Frankie gasped at the sight of her daughter lying in a Bay City Hospital bed, completely unresponsive, exactly like John had said; then quickly tried to collect herself. She forced herself to sound chipper as she moved closer and repeated, “Charlie!” as if they were merely running into each other after a long absence.

Behind her....

Jan 31, 2013     Part #2

“How is she?” Cass and Frankie moved on from hounding Kirkland to How’s Allie feeling?” Though still badly shaken up by the sight of Charlie in her bed, utterly unresponsive, Frankie instinctively reached out to Amanda when the two mothers ran into each other in the hospital waiting area.

“She’s going to be....

EPISODE #2013-194

Jan 21, 2013     Part #1

Kirkland had just come from having his injured shoulder looked at and being assured by the doctor on duty that it was merely a bad muscle sprain, not a tear and that he should alternate ice and heat to keep it from stiffening up and hurting even more, when Frankie and Cass descended upon him in the Emergency Room waiting area, each talking over the other, but both wanting to know the same thing: Where was Charlie?

“They took her....

Jan 24, 2013     Part #2

“How is she?” Cass and Frankie moved on from hounding Kirkland to interrogating John, who came into the waiting area to announce he’d been the one taking care of Charlie since she was first brought in.

Jan 10, 2013     Part #2

“Let’s get one thing straight.” Figuring turnabout was fair play, Marley barged in on Dennis at Russ’ house the same way Iris had done earlier with her at the art gallery. “If you or anyone else in your family wants to....

For a moment, nobody moved....

Nov 29, 2012     Part #2

Considering the sort of Thanksgiving evening Rachel had, Alice waited until nearly noon of the following day before ringing Rachel’s doorbell. Alice inquired about Steven, only to learn that he’d gone into hibernation and wasn’t answering either calls or texts. She then filled Rachel in regarding Sarah deciding to spend the night at Russ’ place rather than face any more inquisitions, and passed on Amanda’s regards to her mother. Both women made a point of avoiding Iris’ name.

It was only after all that was out of the way that....

Nov 19, 2012     Part #1

“Do you remember me?” Iris stretched her hand forward coyly. “You were still such a little boy when I left Bay City years ago.”

“It’s funny,” Iris observed upon entering the Harrison home at Alice’s invitation. “I never dreamed I should see this house again. When he left town for the last time, Spencer made it rather clear he had no intention of ever returning to Bay City.”

“Didn’t you get the memo?” Rachel inquired upon finding Russ waiting for her when she got home from her less than productive conversation with Chase.

“There was a memo?” Russ kissed his ex-wife on the cheek, took Rachel’s coat, hung it up solicitously, and escorted her into the library.

“The one that....

Kevin blew into Jamie’s office at the hospital, already in the middle of at least three different conversations, one on his phone, one on his BlackBerry, another with his wife, telling the waiting Amanda, “I got your message.”


Oct 18, 2012     Part #2

“Hello, Rachel,” a returning from work Iris greeted her stepmother cautiously, certain that Amanda must have come running to Mommy by now with details about her and Iris’ earlier conversation. Iris wasn’t sure how Rachel might react to it. As a result, she was determined not to....

“Thank you for taking the time to meet with us,” Cass gushed effusively to Le Rosey’s rather intimidating headmaster, noting the resemblance the current office occupant bore to the portraits of predecessors lining the wall directly behind him.

“Hello, Iris,” Sarah used her grandmother’s preferred form of address as Iris stormed into Grant and Marley’s guest-room, shooing Bridget and Michele out with a dismissive wave of the hand and a look that had terrified peons twice their age for multiple decades.

“I’m glad you stopped by, darling.” Rachel swept down the stairs to envelope Jamie in a hug, then crouched to study Devon and Mackenzie in their double stroller, Jamie’s younger daughter asleep, his elder scowling silently. “And it’s been much too long since I’ve seen these beauties.”

“Well, we were taking a walk....

“I don’t know,” Jamie told his son honestly. “I don’t know why Jake did what he did to Marley. And I don’t know how Vicky was able to forgive him, or why Marley thought she could still be in love with him after that. I wish I had an answer for you, but I don’t.”

“Why didn’t you ever tell me this before?” Kirkland went for the one question his father couldn’t claim ignorance of.

“You gave me quite a scare, darling,” Donna purred as she waltzed into Matt’s hospital room, wrinkling her nose at the banal décor and thinking about what she could do to spruce up the place, even if it was only for a few days.

“Everything looks fantastic!” Frankie kissed Cass and Felicia’s cheeks in turn as they surveyed the Bay City Country Club, completely taken over from ballroom to adjoining open air pool and patio deck, all decked out on the occasion of Felicia Gallant’s e-book release gala and fundraiser.

“You’ve got a problem,” Lorna informed Matt over the phone after finally reaching him via his private number. The C-Squared designated cell had been full of messages by the time Lorna knew enough to dial, and he wasn’t answering his office line.

“Save it,” Lila suggested to Grant as soon as she caught sight of him waiting in her office at City Hall. Having punched her way through a wall of reporters on the way in, Lila felt highly inclined to keep on swinging. “I know it was you who ratted Chase and me out to Amanda.”

“Did Amanda say....

Mar 12, 2012     Part #1

Amanda supposed it could be taken as an indicator of precisely where her true priorities lay that her first thought, upon walking in on Lila in bed with the mayor of Bay City was, “Damn it, Grant was right,” rather than something more in the shock and awe family.

But, the fact was....

Grant had to admit, despite everything that lead up to it, most crushingly the scene with Sarah earlier, he was, without a doubt, enjoying bringing Donna up to speed regarding Grant and Marley’s whirlwind nuptials.

“The pair of you certainly wasted no time moving on, now did you?” Felicia looked from Lucas to Alice as she noted, “At least Mrs. Harrison here waited until Spencer was neatly tucked away in his grave, albeit the body still warm.

“Zeno!” Frankie called out in alarm as she stepped out of the car and, gesturing for Charlie and Lori Ann to keep back (not that they listened), ran towards the field directly adjacent to the farmhouse, where Zeno currently stood, fending off a dozen or so men and women holding up signs – with a presumably loaded shotgun aimed straight at the center of their demonstration.

“What did you just say?” Cass couldn’t quite bring himself to repeat Zeno’s claim yet. All he did manage to do was sneak a quick peek at Felicia to make sure he’d just heard what he thought he’d heard. Judging by the shocked look on her face, indeed Cass had.

“You know her as....

“Hey,” Kirkland said, meeting Grant outside Spencer’s door, having agreed as soon as Jamie proposed it to drive over and see his grandfather immediately. Now Jamie stood quietly behind his son, letting Kirk take the lead. “How – how is he?”

Though the door remained closed – Alice was in with Spencer now – Grant couldn’t help instinctively looking over his shoulder before sighing and answering honestly, “He’s....

"The next time I'm in an accident," an exhausted Frankie leaned back in her chair after several hours of scouring the photos, records and data Cass downloaded onto his Flash drive from the auto body shop's computer. "I want these guys working on my car. They didn't leave so much as a stray hair."

"Nope," Cass agreed, rubbing his eyes with the palms of both hands. "This is one case you and I aren't going to crack simply by following up on leads the BCPD missed."

Lucas and Felicia left the courtroom on the heels of the rest, ignoring the curious looks shot their way, moving stiffly, unable to meet each other's eyes until they were out of the hallway, squirreled away in a quiet corner. And, even then, there was so much to be said that neither could somehow summon up the strength to begin.

Finally, Felicia stammered out, "Three years, Luke..."

"C-Cass?" A part of Frankie sincerely believed that merely saying his name would somehow prompt the apparition before her to disappear in a puff of smoke.

She said it anyway.

"I told you, Donna, I'm fine. Leave me alone," Marley stubbornly shoved away her mother's ministrations, despite Donna having walked in on Marley, moist-eyed and raw-nosed, in the Bay City University Hospital Ladies' Room.

"Merry Christmas, Mom!" Charlie, with a squealing Lori Ann perched on her hip, the baby dressed in a red and green plaid party dress with matching hair ribbon, greeted Frankie, still in her bathrobe and more than a little bit groggy, as she descended the stairs. "Surprise!"

Charlie stepped aside to reveal....

"The baby isn't yours," Morgan said. "It's mine."

Jamie raised his fist....

"You and Lorna have been married for six years..." Felicia could only repeat in numb shock as she snuck her umpteenth peak at the marriage license Morgan held in his lap, before turning back towards the road.

"I want to fight this," Alice finally said, following a pause that felt interminable to both Spencer and Kevin. "But, I do not want it to be at the expense of Jen, Steven and the rest. If my defending myself makes it more difficult for them, I won't do it."

"It's not a question of ....

"Think this'll be like with the president in 2000?" Kirkland kept asking anyone within earshot, his eyes darting from one 60-inch flat screen television to the next, despite the fact that every local station was reporting Grant and Chase Hamilton in a dead heat.

"Still too early to tell,"....

Waking up first, Sarah curled up against Steven's back, sleepily reaching her arm around, stroking his chest and moving her hand downward, only to have a suddenly alert Steven recoil from her touch and spring out of bed.

"What's the matter?"....

"So, I'll see you at the wedding, then?" Amanda flashed a brilliant smile Lila's way as they crossed in the second floor Cory hall the morning of Alice and Spencer's nuptials. "You are going with Kevin, right? Him being your man, and all?"

"Actually," Lila's smile was no less brilliant....

Donna's stomach lurched at the sight of Spencer, Lucas and Carl waiting for her in the shadows outside of John's house. So naturally, she did the only thing one could under the circumstances....

Oct 21, 2010     Part #2

"He isn't home, Jamie," Lorna indicated the rental car they'd parked down the street from the run-down Bakersfield bungalow with Frame scribbled in pencil over the mail-slot. "Let's just go back. I told you last night; this is pointless."

"He's here." Jamie pointed to the nearest window. "I saw the shades shut as soon as we started up the walk."

Oct 7, 2010     Part #2

"Please," GQ reached out to lightly nudge the Bauers' front door open an inch further. "I just want to see Hudson, and to talk to you and Dr. Bauer. I don't blame you for anything that's happened. I know it was all Allie's doing. You're just as much... I'm not here to... Honestly, I don't know what I'm going to do yet. I just want to see... my son."

Mindy hesitated. But she was no longer blocking the entrance. "Rick's at work," she said. "I — Come in. I'm sorry. I just wasn't sure how..."

EPISODE #2010-73

Sept 27, 2010     Part #1

"Because Gregory wasn't Hudson's real father," Allie said, and although, a second earlier it had seemed as if all the assembled mourners waiting for their cars on the sidewalk were busily engaged in their own individual conversations, as soon as the words were out of Allie's mouth, it were as if an off switch had been flipped, and she made her confession into total silence.

Sept 30, 2010     Part #2

"You can turn around now," Lorna instructed Jamie as he stood on the balcony of their San Diego hotel suite, already wearing his own tuxedo for the evening ahead, but under strict orders not to peek until Lorna pronounced herself officially ready.


EPISODE #2010-72

Sept 20, 2010     Part #1

"I don't mean to rush you," Donna hovered outside John's ajar bedroom door, reluctant to intrude as he sat on the bed, staring into space as though utterly lost regarding what he should be doing next. "But....

Sept 23, 2010     Part #2

"My condolences to you, Dr. Hudson," Carl stretched forth a hand to shake John's, who took it perfunctorily, the same way he'd accepted every other generic commiseration as he sat beside Sharlene on either side of their son's casket. "I regret to say....

"Sarah?" Marley pulled into the parking lot adjacent to Bay City U's dormitories, and softly tapped the slumbering girl on the shoulder. "We're here."

"Oh, wow," Sarah laughed self-consciously, stirring from her repose in the passenger seat of Marley's car. "Sorry for....

Aug 26, 2010     Part #2

"What happened in there?" Amanda leapt on Kevin the moment he stepped out of the interrogation room with the kids and Hamilton. Jamie may have been less forward, but he was just as curious.

Kevin beckoned them both over into a corner....

EPISODE #2010-67

Aug 16, 2010     Part #1

Sarah glanced briefly from GQ as he was urging the rest of them to hightail it out of there, over to Allie, planted stubbornly on the bed, arms crossed, quietly but intractably insisting that she wasn't going to abandon Gregory, not even now, she'd given him her word — and made up her mind on the spot.


Aug 19, 2010     Part #2

The Bay City Police officer on the other end of the phone was still waiting patiently for John's answer. Sharlene was still behind him, hammering on John's back with her fists now, demanding that he tell her everything.

John turned around..."

Aug 9, 2010     Part #1

"I didn't mean to upset you with what I said," Lucas came up quietly behind Felicia, who'd been sitting for the past several hours, staring blankly out the window, not moving, not speaking.

"And I never mean to ....

Aug 12, 2010     Part #2

The last time Gregory managed to open his eyes, he smiled when he saw that Allie was still there, as promised, lying next to him on the bed, stroking his arm so that he could feel her even while barely conscious.

He looked at her silently for a long moment, and then he told her, "Today..."

EPISODE #2010-65

"I'll scream," Donna warned Carl as they stood outside the Hudson house, his hand clamped firmly over her wrist. "John is right inside, he'll— "

"Scream, then." Carl suggested....

Grant said, "If you don't want me running for Mayor, just say the word. As much as I've come to realize I want back in that game, as much as I'd like to leave some kind of legacy that Kirkland can be proud of, I won't sacrifice the people I love to do it. Not this time."

"Lorna wants to take Lori Ann away from me?" Frankie struggled over the words as if each were a block with sharp corners that didn't quite fit the contours of her mouth.

"I'll take care of Donna," Carl swore to Felicia over the phone. And then, after a pause, almost solicitously, he asked, "What did she say to you?"

"She never....

EPISODE #2010-62

July 12, 2010     Part #1

Frankie wasn't precisely sure what she expected the 4th of July at Bay City's maximum-security prison to be like. All she knew was she wasn't prepared for how simultaneously normal and bizarre it turned out to be.

On the one hand, there was the green lawn, the families with picnic baskets, the flags, the balloons, the music. On the other hand....

July 15, 2010     Part #2

"I thought we were past all of this," Grant thundered, his outrage rising to new levels, or, at the very least, decibels.

"I married twin sisters. It would be a bit....

This time around, Lorna made sure to call and double-check for herself exactly what time Cass' allocution — and Lucas' release — were scheduled for.

She arrived a half-hour late deliberately....

June 24, 2010     Part #2

"Is it cool for you to have girls in your room," Lorna joked as Jamie unlocked the door to his balcony. "Or will you get in trouble with your Mommy?"

"I'll risk it." He pulled her inside with a quick glance down the three-story, seemingly smooth wall. "How the hell did you get up here?"

May 20, 2010     Part #2

Cass sent Felicia on ahead to the church so she could help Frankie get everything ready for Lori Ann's christening, promising to catch up as soon as he crossed all the T's and dotted the I's of Lucas' paperwork.

Mar 29, 2010     Part #1

Mike Bauer assessed Jamie, currently sitting across from him in a hotel-room chair, with a practiced eye. He waited for an explanation.

When none proved forthcoming, Mike decided to lead his witness a bit by prompting, "Have you suddenly realized yourself to be guilty?"

"So is this how it's going to be from now on?" Jamie mused. "You're just going to glare and give me the cold shoulder every time you see me?"
