He then tells her that his marriage is no more because Brenda isn't dying. Jason explains that they didn't even like each other and he married her out of pity for the disease she was supposed to have.

When Alan asks if Skye wants Alan to call Jax, Skye tells Alan to go ahead. However, when Alan arrives with Skye at the Hospital, Jax meets them, but Skye appears to be angry that Jax showed up. Skye tells Jax about Brenda's visit, implying that Brenda came to gloat over her bedroom antics with Jax, but Jax believes that Skye's story is just a ploy for sympathy.

AJ again tries to apologize to Courtney, but Courtney angrily decides she does NOT want to listen to anything AJ has to say and gets ready to leave with Michael.

Thursday, November 21, 2002

Brenda dresses up for her surprise from Jax. They share an intimate moment that is ruined when Skye shows up at Brenda's cottage. She informs Jax that she has contacted her lawyer and that she is refusing to grant him a divorce and if he tries to force her to divorce him she will prolong it as long as possible. She calls Brenda a slut among other names and tells Jax that she will not allow her to be happy with Jax as long as she is around to stop the divorce. She threatens to smear Brenda's name in the press and in court if necessary. Jax tells her to leave Brenda alone but Skye tells him she won't. Brenda is hurt by her words even though she acts like she is dismissing Skye. After Skye storms out of the cottage, Jax comforts her. Brenda tells him that part of her understands how Skye feels since she used to be just like her once. Jax tells her not to blame herself for what happened. Jax takes Brenda to her surprise.

Meanwhile, Edward tries to throw AJ out of Brenda's party but Monica won't let him. AJ informs Edward that he is working for ELQ again and Ned shows up to confirm it. Edward is not pleased and criticizes Alan for having children who can't stay married to their spouses more than a year. AJ tells Alan and Monica that he plans on keeping his marriage together and blames Jason for why there are problems. Monica tells him to keep Jason out of it. Mac, Felicia, and Scott arrive to the party early so Brenda's surprise isn't ruined. The Quartermaines grill Mac and Scott about why they can't stop Alcazar and put him away for good once and for all. Mac and Scott don't know what to do and feel that their hands are tied concerning Alcazar at the moment. They hear noise coming from the front of the mansion near the front door. They all hurry into the foyer to surprise Brenda when she comes in. However, they are surprised themselves when Skye comes in the door and sarcastically thanks them for their warm welcome. She makes remarks about Brenda and Jax being behind them and on their way.

Brenda is surprised by the party but is quickly dismayed when she sees Skye and then Alcazar comes in through the kitchen entrance. He tells her that he still plans to leave Port Charles with her. She gets in his face and tells him that despite the fact that he still thinks he can get away with doing what he wants without being sent away, she won't hesitate to come after him herself. Alcazar is visibly upset and tears fall down his face. He refuses to leave right away. Monica orders him out of her house immediately. Mac tells him to leave quietly now or he will arrest him on trespassing charges. Alcazar leaves.

Meanwhile, Sonny had informed Jason that Alcazar may show up to Brenda's party considering how obsessed he is in getting Brenda back. He gives Jason orders to follow Alcazar to the party and make his move. Jason shows up and throws something at Alcazar's limo to get the driver's attention. The driver comes out of the limo to investigate one of the front tires. Jason comes up from behind him and uses chloroform to knock him out. He drags his unconscious body to the bushes and steals his hat to wear. He gets inside the limo to disguise himself as the driver and wait for Alcazar. Alcazar shows up outside and gets into the limo. He orders Jason to take him back to his hotel immediately. Skye gets into the back of the limo and tells Alcazar she is coming with him to the hotel. Alcazar doesn't stop her and tells Jason to take them both to the hotel. Jason realizes who is in the limo and curses but does what he says, with his gun next to him. As they drive off, AJ watches the limo take off with a curious look on his face.

Meanwhile, Sonny's preoccupation with business upsets Carly. Sonny reassures her that he doesn't care what Brenda does with her life and with whom since she is his wife and he plans to spend the rest of his life with her. Carly is reassured for awhile but a call from Benny interrupts their night at Luke's club. Earlier in the evening, a mysterious man shows up at Sonny's penthouse and asks to speak to Sonny. Max, Sonny's bodyguard informs him that Sonny doesn't meet with strangers unless he has been introduced by one of his associates or friends first. The man tells Max that a friend of his is an associate of Sonny's and recommended that he meet him. Max refuses to let the man enter Sonny's place and tells him that his friend will have to call and set up a meeting with them outside of his home. The man doesn't argue with him and leaves quietly.

He shows up at Luke's club and sits at the bar observing Carly, Sonny, and Jason who joined them earlier for a drink before heading off to follow Alcazar. The man continued to watch them all evening. Jason had approached Liz at her table while she was sitting with Lucky. He told her that Brenda was no longer sick or dying from a disease and that their marriage will be dissolved soon. Liz tells Jason that she doesn't think it would work out between them anyway and that she really doesn't want to hear about his life anymore. Jason accepts what she says but is hurt by her words and heads back to his table. Lucky asks her about her relationship with Jason now. She tells him that they don't have a relationship anymore. Lucky wonders about Luke's new shrink Cameron and how good he really is since Scott recommended him to the court for Luke to see. Liz tells Lucky to give Cameron a chance to help Luke since it is better than Luke going to prison and destroying his life anymore. Lucky agrees to give the shrink a chance.

Meanwhile, Luke follows the footprints in the park and waits around hoping to find the mysterious blonde woman he saved. A homeless man is close by and Luke offers him part of the park bench to sit and offers him some liquor to warm up with from his flask. The man takes the drink with his own cup and talks to Luke. Luke asks him if he has seen a blonde woman around who wears a blue scarf and is young. The man remembers seeing a woman of that description come through the park a few times. Luke grabs a woman who fits the description but finds out it isn't her. Cameron watches Luke from afar. He comments to Luke about accosting women in the park. Luke refuses to accept that the woman is a figment of his imagination. He shows Cameron the blue scarf and mentions the footprints in the snow that came from where the truck hit him and went into the woods near the park. Cameron tells Luke that the only person he is hurting with his delusions is himself and that he is using his delusions to be close to Laura who is in a world of her own right now. Luke doesn't agree with him and calls him a quack.

Cameron shows up at Luke's club to meet Lucky. He tells Lucky that Luke isn't getting better despite what Bobbie said and if anything he is getting worse. He tells Lucky and Liz that now Luke is seeing women who look like Laura and thinking he saved this one blonde woman's life by stepping in front of a moving truck. He tells them that the driver never saw any woman only Luke. Lucky becomes concerned and finds Luke at the park. Luke insists that the woman exists and that he saved her life. He tells Lucky he'll call him if he needs to be bailed out of jail and tells him to go on with his own life and leave him be. Lucky leaves him alone for now. Luke sits on the bench and sees another blonde woman with a blue scarf walk by him. This time he goes and grabs her and tells her she is that woman. The woman looks at him with a startled look.



Friday, November 22, 2002

In the Park, Luke finally finds his mystery woman. She reluctantly thanks Luke for saving her life and finding her scarf. Luke tries to coax her into telling him her name and, after Luke explains that he owns Luke's Place and tells her about the way that he recently lost his wife, Laura, the mystery woman finally tells him that her name is Summer. Later, Luke meets Cameron in the park and tells the shrink that he met his 'mystery woman', that she is NOT a figment of his imagination and her name is Summer. But Cameron continues to believe that Luke is projecting his fantasy of Laura onto an innocent bystander. Later, Lucky catches up with Luke in the park and informs his dad that Cameron believes that Luke is fantasizing about finding someone who resembles Laura. But Luke assures Lucky that the woman that Luke saw was NO fantasy - and that the one who has a mental problem is Cameron!

At Kelly's, Liz arrives for work and confides in Courtney that Luke's psychiatrist believes that Luke is getting worse. Then Liz confesses that Liz ran into Jason at Luke's Place earlier and Jason tried to explain that his marriage to Brenda will soon be ending because Brenda is not dying after all, but Liz still backed away from a potential relationship with Jason because Liz believed that Jason's 'work' was too dangerous for Liz to ever be able to accept.

Meanwhile, at the Quartermaine Mansion, Brenda apologizes to Ned because of the way that Alcazar ruined the party, but Ned assures Brenda and Jax that Alcazar will eventually pay for his crimes.

At the same time, at the neonatal ICU, Alexis confides in Cameron that Alcazar was present when she went into labor - and that the arms dealer just walked away in spite of Alexis' pleas for help. Later, Alexis tells Ned that she believes that SOMEONE needs to make Alcazar pay for his crimes, and Ned assures her that someone will. Later, when the nurses come to tend Baby Kristina and find her alone, they remark that it is unusual to find the baby without one or both of her parents standing vigil near her incubator.

Later, at Luke's Place, as Sonny takes a cell phone call from Benny, Jason and Carly's old cell mate from Venezuela overhears. Since Sonny and Carly are trying to be seen in case they need an alibi, Carly suggests that they go past Kelly's and see Courtney. When Carly tells Sonny that Courtney is feeling a little foolish for ever having believed AJ, Sonny questions HOW Carly would know for sure HOW Courtney was feeling about anything.

Back at the Quartermaine Mansion, as Edward fumes because SKYE ruined his party for Brenda, Alan informs his father that it would be nice if Edward could show a little compassion for the suffering his own granddaughter has been enduring. But Edward points out that BOTH of Alan's alcoholic offspring have managed to tank their marriages in less than a year. At that time, AJ returns to the house and reports to his father that Skye has already gone. Later, AJ asks Reginald who came in the limousine and Reginald reports to AJ that the limousine belonged to Alcazar.

At the same time, Jax and Brenda return to the Cottage and hit the sheets. Meanwhile, Skye and Alcazar return to HIS Penthouse suite on the fourteenth floor of the Port Charles Hotel for a nightcap. As Skye and Alcazar talk On the Terrace, Alcazar assures Skye that Brenda will NOT be with Jax for very long. As Alcazar suddenly kisses Skye, she lets go of her liquor glass and the glass falls fourteen floors and shatters on the pavement below.

When Sonny and Carly arrive at Kelly's, Courtney apologizes to Sonny for failing to listen to his warnings about AJ Carly and Jason's former cell mate from Venezuela follows Sonny to Kelly's, and, when Liz asks for his order, she recognizes him as the man who almost grabbed her drink earlier in the evening at Luke's Place.

Meanwhile, Luke arrives at Luke's Place and finds three women resembling Laura, holding up the bar. As Luke tries to strike up a conversation, Luke voices his suspicion that Cameron was behind the assembly - and Cameron comes out of hiding to confirm Luke's suspicion that Cameron had engaged all three ladies for Luke to project his fantasies onto. But Luke is NOT impressed. However, later in the evening, after the club closes, Luke is surprised when the girl who told him that her name was Summer suddenly arrives and asks Luke HOW he knew that her REAL name was Laura!

At the same time that Skye and Alcazar hit the sheets in Alcazar's Penthouse Suite at the Port Charles Hotel, Jason silently slips unnoticed in to the command center for the surveillance cameras of the Hotel, chloroforms the night watchman, and shuts off the video camera trained on Alcazar's floor.

Meanwhile, Brenda leaves Jax sleeping in bed and slips out of the Cottage - alone.

In the meantime, as Sonny and Carly talk to Courtney, AJ arrives and startles Sonny by guessing that Sonny is trying to be seen in public because something is going down tonight and Sonny wants to make sure he has an alibi. Sonny accuses AJ of making false accusations, but, after AJ goes into the kitchen to try to speak with Courtney, Sonny calls Jason and tells Jason that, since AJ is suspicious about something going down, they need to postpone the hit on Alcazar. In the kitchen, AJ tries again to apologize to Courtney, but Courtney just accuses AJ of using her to get to Michael.

At the same time, Jax awakens at the Cottage and realizes that Brenda is missing.

As Jason prepares to leave the Port Charles Hotel, he glances up and notices that, on one of the monitors, Jason can see Brenda headed toward Alcazar's suite. Jason starts up the stairway to intercept Brenda. Meanwhile, the Venezuelan Stranger passes in the street below Alcazar's Penthouse Suite and steps on the broken glass from Skye's liquor glass, now covered by snow.

While Jason races up the stairs to try to prevent Brenda from entering Alcazar's Penthouse, Jax enters the building through the Lobby when a celebrating couple leaves for a party. Brenda's loud knocking on Alcazar's door wakes Alcazar - but not Skye. When Alcazar lets Brenda in, Alcazar tells Brenda that he will NEVER let her be happy with anyone else and Luis promises that either Alcazar will kill Jax - OR Jax will go to prison for killing Alcazar - but, either way, BRENDA will lose! When Alcazar tries to kiss Brenda, she struggles with him and loses her bracelet in the struggle. Then she runs out the door. But, as Brenda bumps into a dinner cart in the hallway, she discovers a steak knife, and picks it up, staring at it.

Skye is wakened by the sound of Luis and Brenda arguing in the next room, and woozily tries to get out of bed and struggles toward the door. In the meantime, Jason and Jax both rush up different flights of stairs in an effort to intercept Brenda BEFORE Brenda gets to Luis. Alcazar goes out on the balcony, then turns when he hears someone behind him. Alcazar recognizes the person who is moving toward the balcony and asks in an irritated tone of voice: "Now what?"

In the next moment, Alcazar free-falls fourteen floors, hurtling onto the hood of a car below.
