Miguel tells Kay that he didn't have sex with Siren. He made out with her to protect Kay. He tells her that he loves her. Tabitha thinks that Miguel is making the situation worse since Kay is already confused. Moreover, she begs Endora not to intervene. Miguel wants Kay to choose because he does not want to be Kay's rebound. Kay forgives Miguel for jumping to the wrong conclusion about him. Endora is in her own little world, at some point in time, prior to this moment. She is listening to Fox complain about the situation with Kay and Miguel. Fox also expresses a slight dislike for Siren and how strange she is. Endora can't stand to see Fox unhappy, so she zaps Siren and transforms her into a little doll. She conjures up a fish tank and dumps Siren in there. She promises to let Siren out some day when she is on her best behavior. Siren is out of Fox, Miguel and Kay's life for now, thanks to Endora. Fox is planning to take Kay out to dinner, so he heads to the kitchen to see her, but before he could get there, Endora redirected him to Sam's kitchen. Endora did not want Fox to walk in on Kay and Miguel. She hates seeing Fox so unhappy. In the meantime, Fox thinks he is in the twilight zone. He doesn't know how he got to Sam's kitchen, and Noah thinks he is acting strange. He seems pretty unbalanced but doesn't know that Endora is the cause of it. All he knows is that Harmony is a very strange place. Tabitha is annoyed that Endora is interfering since she wants Fox to learn the truth about Miguel and Kay. She thinks it's for the best since Miguel won't be free to be with Charity if he is with Kay. Miguel is pressuring Kay not to marry Fox. Fox is on his way back to see Kay, but she is still with Miguel in the kitchen. Tabitha announces that Fox is on his way, loudly enough so that Kay could hear her. Kay immediately grabs Miguel and hides in the closet. Miguel couldn't resist temptation and begins to kiss Kay. Kay tells him to stop but couldn't resist Miguel's charms and gives into temptation.

Paloma and Simone are not buying Jessica's excuses. They sense that Spike has been hurting her again. Meanwhile, Spike breaks into Sheridan's cottage to steal her valuables. Chris walks up behind him and threatens him with a knife at his throat. Spike tells Chris to speed up the process with the embezzlement or else he will tell Sheridan the truth about James. Back at the Crane pool, Paloma and Simone try to talk some sense into Jessica. Simone tells her to run away from Spike and press charges against him. Spike overhears Simone. He grabs a hold of her and twists her arm. He tells her to stay out of Jessica's life. Paloma orders Spike to let go of Simone, and he refuses. Paloma grabs a hold of Spike and twists his arm. She tells him to leave Simone and Jessica alone. Jessica tells Paloma to leave Spike alone. Spike threatens to tell the truth about Jessica's dead Johns if Simone and Paloma do not stay out of his business. He also tells them that they would be accessories since they knew about the Johns and covered it up.

Pilar is still trying to convince Theresa to tell Ethan the truth about Little Ethan. Whitney also tries to convince Theresa to tell the truth, but Theresa is not budging. Valerie brings Little Ethan to see Theresa, and Theresa tells him that they will be together forever and ever. Meanwhile, Ethan grabs a hold of the envelope with Theresa's will. He is shocked at the contents. Gwen asks to see it and insists that Ethan goes with her to confront Theresa. Gwen tells Theresa that she deliberately sent the will to Ethan, and Theresa tells her that Valerie made a mistake. Gwen is not buying it. She thinks that Theresa sent it to Ethan on purpose. Whew, Ethan and Gwen did not see Theresa's letter about Little Ethan. Theresa feels better, but where is the letter? Ethan accepts Theresa's request to take over Crane Industries (CI) and take care of Little Ethan if she is no longer alive. Gwen is not pleased with that arrangement. In the meantime, the letter about Little Ethan is in plain view on Ethan's desk. A mystery person walks into Ethan's office and grabs the letter and reads it. Theresa stalls Ethan and Gwen while she sends Pilar to retrieve the letter. The mystery person hears Pilar's footsteps and replaces the letter on Ethan's desk. Pilar retrieves the letter while the mystery person hides underneath Ethan's desk. Pilar returns to Theresa's office with the letter in hand. Theresa can put her mind at ease for now.

Tuesday, October 3, 2006

Spike is furious after Simone and Paloma's inquiries about Jessica's bruises. He tells his wife to stay away from her friends or they might get hurt, too. Paloma and Simone realize Spike is blackmailing Jessica about the dead johns. The girls read through the police reports, hoping to prove Jessica's innocence.

Martin runs into Katherine and they talk about their difficulties in reconnecting with their families. Pilar overhears their conversation and reminds them that they are terrible people, lest they forget.

Sheridan is thrilled when a judge gives the okay for her to adopt James.

Fancy and Luis end a workout session with a kiss.

Wednesday, October 4, 2006

Sheridan, Chris and James arrive home after the successful conclusion of the adoption hearing. Sheridan is now officially James' mother. The house is decorated with balloons. Gwen and Ethan arrive bearing presents. They are all very happy. Chris, Ethan and James go into the kitchen. Gwen embraces Sheridan and tells her what a wonderful mother she will be. Sheridan accidentally calls James, "Marty." Sheridan corrects herself and tells Gwen that she love James like her own. Gwen assures Sheridan that she understands and she knows that Sheridan will be a wonderful mother. Elsewhere in Harmony, the scene shifts to Tabitha' kitchen table, where she, Fox and Kay are sampling wedding cakes prepared by a renowned pastry chef. "One of the perks of being a Crane bride is getting so many choices," says Fox, who tries to persuade Kay to try another cake. Kay demurs, but Fox wants to make everything perfect for the wedding. Kay thinks about her perfect wedding, but instead of seeing Fox as the groom, she pictures Miguel. Tabitha thinks out loud and conjectures that Kay has more important decisions to make than which cake to pick. Tabitha speculates that Kay has to decide on which man to marry. At Crane headquarters, Chad and Valerie discuss how anxious Theresa was to keep Ethan from seeing the contents of a smaller envelope that had been included in the packet with her will that Valerie had accidentally delivered to Ethan instead of the company safe, where it was supposed to have gone. Valerie tells Chad that she does not know what the smaller envelopes contains. She also tells him that despite recovering the envelope, Theresa still seems very edgy and scared. In her office, Whitney asks a visibly shaking Theresa what's wrong. Theresa tell Whitney "It's bad enough that Ethan and Gwen know that I've left Ethan in charge of the entire Crane empire as trustee for Little Ethan, but if they ever find out why, that Little Ethan is..." At that moment Jared walks in. He looks stunned. Theresa glances around nervously.

Chad tells Valerie that he does not understand why Theresa left all the Crane assets to Ethan as Little Ethan's trustee. Valerie agrees and says that Ethan is not even a Crane, unlike Chad, who ruefully admits that he is the bastard son of Alistair, who he dubs a racist. They continue to speculate about Theresa's motives. Valerie suggests that it was because Ethan was disinherited when it was discovered that his biological father was actually Sam Bennett. "There's more to it than that!" Chad declares. In Theresa's office, "How long have you been standing there?" Whitney inquires of Jared. "Long enough to know I'm not crazy about this." He says, pointing back and forth between Whitney, and Theresa who asks, "What?" Jared says that every time he comes into the room they suddenly clam up and he wants to know why. He does not understand why they look so guilty. He makes a shopping joke. They cover and pretend that they are feeling guilty about having pie. Theresa and Jared talk a little business. Jared leaves and Theresa shuts the door. Whitney suggests that she tell him, but Theresa says that she does not want anyone to know that Little Ethan is Ethan's biological son until after she is dead. In the cottage, Gwen says it's natural for Sheridan to think about her biological son and that Gwen understands because she thinks about her deceased daughter every day, even though she loves her adopted daughter as though she were her own flesh and blood. She is very happy for Sheridan. Ethan, Chris and James are playing with the remote controlled vehicle that Gwen and Ethan brought as a present for James. They are noisy so the men decide to take the toy outside. James calls Sheridan "Mom," and she lights up happily. Gwen senses that Sheridan is thinking about Luis and says so to Sheridan.

Theresa and Whitney argue. Whitney urges Theresa to tell Ethan the truth, but Theresa fears that Ethan will sue for custody and win. She will not take the chance. Whitney points out that Gwen and Ethan may figure out her reasons if they put the pieces of the puzzle together. In Tabitha's kitchen, Miguel comes in and notices that Fox has fed Kay Marzipan cake. He tells Fox that it makes Kay sick and has done so since they were kids. We hear Tabitha as she thinks, "This isn't going to be as much fun as I thought it would." Kay and Fox look uncomfortable.

"Why did you pick that cake?" asks Fox. Kay says that she wanted to make him happy. Fox wants a cake they both like. Fox and Kay move to another part of the kitchen and Tabitha tells Miguel that he is playing with fire. Miguel tells her that he knows what he wants and he is looking at a long and happy future with Kay. In the hallway at Crane, Chad tells Valerie that he will put in a good word with Theresa for her. Impulsively, Valerie thanks Chad with a friendly hug. The elevator doors open and Jared sees them. He gets the wrong impression and looks away.

Whitney continues to point out how smart Ethan is, and how easy it would be to "connect the dots." Theresa is fearful of losing her son. "He's all I've got," she insists. Whitney asks Theresa about Jared, about whether or not she loves him. Theresa dithers for an answer, then tell Whitney that nothing comes before her son, Little Ethan. If that is true asks a credulous Whitney, then why not tell Little Ethan the truth about his parentage. Theresa vows that she will when no one can hurt either her or her son. Whitney insists to Theresa that secrets have a way of being exposed, no matter how many good intentions are involved. Theresa remains in denial. She makes Whitney promise that after she dies that she did what she thought was best for her son, because she feared that Gwen and Ethan would take Little Ethan way as they had her daughter Jane. Whitney promises, but tells Theresa that it will be years and years before she dies. Theresa looks away. Whitney want to know if there is something that Theresa is not telling. "I don't know," says Theresa, 'I just sort of have this feeling...It's just in case." Outside the cottage, James plays with the car, Ethan and Chris talk about what a good second mom Sheridan will be. Ethan while Chris and Ethan discuss how James lost his mother in a tsunami. Ethan asks Chris about his job. They discuss Theresa and Ethan tells Chris about Theresa's will. He says that it makes no sense. Inside, Sheridan tells Gwen that Luis is everywhere that she goes. She even saw him at the courthouse with Fancy. On this very happy occasion for her, seeing Luis reminded Sheridan of all that they had lost. It makes the day bittersweet. She loves her husband and family Sheridan assures Gwen. She has to put the past behind. Both she and Luis must move on. Sheridan is committed to her husband and son. She and Luis must move on she insist again. Gwen says that it will be very tough on her to keep her commitment to Chris if Sheridan wishes she were married to someone else.

Ethan continues to talk about the terms of the will with Chris and speculates on Theresa's reasons. Chris points out that Theresa respects Ethan's legal abilities and does not want to leave Julian in charge. Ethan admits that he loves Little Ethan as much as he would if Little Ethan was really his son. Inside, Gwen informs Sheridan about the terms of the will. Gwen tells Sheridan that she thinks something else is going on, because she is sure that Theresa did not want Ethan to see the will until after her death. They agree that it is bizarre behavior. Gwen wants to know about a smaller envelope that was with the will, but has since disappeared from Ethan's office. She thinks that the contents of that envelope will answer all her questions. "No more," says Tabitha as she pushes away a plate of cake. Fox tells Tabitha that she is "off the hook" and asks for Miguel's opinion. Miguel tells him that he would pick the lemon cake if it was his wedding, and then he leaves the house. Fox say he does not like lemon and Tabitha says "Too bad," because Kay has loved lemony things since she was a girl. Fox and Kay take a break and Kay is noticeably quiet and unsettled. She says she has a stomachache. Fox leaves to call the chef. Tabitha tells Kay she had big problems. Kay says her mind is made up. She is going to marry Fox. Her gut tells her to marry Fox. Tabitha tells Kay that she had better be sure that she can live with her decision for the rest of her life.

Gwen and Sheridan continue to discuss Theresa' motives for putting Ethan in control of Crane should she pass away. Whitney tells Theresa that she thinks that Chad is cheating on her. She mentions the many times he receives a phone call and then leaves, ostensibly for work. She also mentions seeing Chad with Valerie. Theresa wants to fire Valerie, but Whitney says no, because she is not sure and she does not want to get Valerie fired if she is innocent. In the hallway Valerie thanks Chad again and goes back to her office. Jared confronts Chad who assures him that he was only comforting Valerie. Chad acknowledges that it looked bad. Jared tells Chad to be careful and he says he will. Miguel is outside playing basketball, fantasizing about a kiss with Kay; when he is challenged to a game by Fox who immediately stuffs a basket. Tabitha casts a spell over her bowl to see into the future. She sees the wedding but does not want to tell Kay what she sees. Everyone is there, she tells Kay, but it is not for your wedding.

Gwen and Sheridan join Ethan, Chris and James outdoors. The adults discuss Theresa's will while James plays with his toy. They conclude that Theresa simply thought that Ethan would be the best manager. All go inside. Gwen lingers and ponders Theresa' motives. Alone, she vows to get to the bottom of Theresa's bequest. Jared and Chad discuss Theresa' will. Jared is concerned, but thinks that he can replace Ethan in Theresa' heart. Theresa wants to fire Valerie, but Whitney says that she is probably overreacting. Whitney questions Theresa's need for a will. Theresa shares her feelings that something bad is about to happen. Fox and Miguel continue their duel on the basketball court. Tabitha tells Kay that people are gathered in the church for a funeral. "Someone very close to you is going to die," intones Tabitha to a stunned Kay.

Friday, October 6, 2006

Luis is being watched and cannot get to move around freely. While he awaits his back up, Fancy shows up as a stripper. Out of concern for her safety, Luis approaches Fancy and tells her that she should not be there. She tells Luis to leave her alone before her cover is blown. Lester, the club owner is getting suspicious of Fancy and Luis since they showed up unexpectedly. Luis tries to put his mind at ease by turning the tables on him. Luis accuses Lester of being the mole the FBI planted. Fancy chimes in and said that Luis used to visit the club she worked in Boston. Lester took the bait. To make it even more convincing, Fancy has to give Luis a lap dance. She has to maintain her cover as well as Luis'. Lester walks out of the room to handle some business in the back. Luis and Fancy are now alone, but Lester's goons are watching from afar. Luis accuses Fancy of playing games and wants her gone, but Fancy isn't going anywhere. Luis is wondering what's going on in the back room since Lester keeps disappearing. He can't get to snoop because he is being watched, and he has to deal with Fancy. Luis manages to get rid of Fancy for now. Lester wants to get Luis more involved in the operation, and Luis accepts his offer. Lester is not really getting Luis involved. He wants to find out if Fancy and Luis know each other because he thinks something is not right with them. Luis finds out that Lester is running a porn ring. He also discovers that Fancy is the new star of the next porn flick.

Kay inquires why Fox is unconscious, and Miguel tells her that it's an accident resulting from their one on one basketball game. Kay is worried that the funeral Tabitha saw in the magic bowl could turn out to be Fox's funeral. Tabitha tells Kay that she did not see who was going to die. Fox is ok. He hits his head very hard, and Jared thinks he should be checked out by someone just in case he has a concussion. Fox tells Kay that he does not need a doctor. Both Jared and Chad agree that Miguel and Fox were at war since they were playing such a rough game. Chad leaves to meet with his mystery date. He tells her that he is glad that they came separately because he just ran into someone he knows. Back at Tabitha's house, Miguel and Fox get into another squabble over a broken stove that's not broken. Tabitha had to explain the mess in her house, so she lies about her stove exploding.

Theresa thinks JT is still in hiding based on confirmation from her Private investigator (PI). She doesn't want JT showing up to spill the beans on Ethan about Little Ethan's true paternity. Whitney asks Valerie if she has seen Chad, and Val tells her that she has not seen Chad in a while. Whitney senses that Val is nervous and shares it with Theresa. Theresa tells Whitney that Val and Chad are not having an affair and to stop worrying. Whitney is not convinced since she has no explanations for Chad's late night phone calls and his late work schedules. Valerie gets a call while she was in with Theresa and Whitney. She asks the caller why she received a call while she was in with Whitney and Theresa. Theresa tells Frank, the PI to follow Chad.

Rebecca asks JT his reason for being in Harmony, and he tells her that he is here to see her. Rebecca promises to meet JT on one condition: He has to find out why Theresa named Ethan in his will to oversee Crane Industries if she dies. Rebecca tells JT that she cannot see him because of Gwen. He tells her not to mention it to Gwen. Gwen and Ethan overheard Rebecca telling JT that Gwen does not have to know, and it's making them both suspicious of Rebecca. Rebecca lies to Gwen and Ethan to cover her tracks. Ethan is not buying Rebecca's explanation. He thinks Rebecca and JT Cornell know why Theresa left him in charge in case she dies. Gwen and Rebecca want to know why Ethan is so fixated on JT all of a sudden. He tells them that it's because of what happened in Rome. Gwen asks Ethan if he believes Theresa, and Ethan tells Gwen that he doesn't believe she had anything to do with leaking the tabloid, but Ethan thinks Rebecca knows JT intimately.
