Josh, Cassie and Michael are shocked to see an aged Clone-Reva step out of the bedroom. (I estimate her to be in her mid-twenties). Cassie became irritated when Reva hints that she is now ready to move into Josh's house and assume the role for which she was made. Josh is completely in awe at her, and asks everyone to leave the apartment.

Reva later says to Josh that she wants nothing more that to be loved by him. Josh doesn't quite yet admit to loving her, but says that she is so surprisingly similar to the original Reva (her speech & mannerisms).

Blake pauses outside Ben's hotel room, checking her makeup in her compact mirror. Ben and Ross are inside, and Ross is bragging that there is nothing he can do to destroy his marriage with Blake. Ross also talks of bringing up charges against him for hiding the crucial videotape. Ben reminds Ross that if he does that, he'll have to put Blake on the stand. He also asks Ross to think about the fact that if he gave Blake the tape, wouldn't Blake have to give something in return? Someone knocks at the door, and it is a maid. Blake is gone. Ross leaves, and Ben says to himself that Blake shouldn't have messed with him...he turns on the television to view a tape that he secretly made the one time Blake actually got into bed with him.

Real Reva find that her raft isn't as seaworthy as she thought it would be, and it capsizes. She screams out for help, and the mystery Island Man comes rushing out into the water to her rescue. He carries her to his house, saying to himself that he wished that she hadn't come to the island, and he wishes that she wasn't so beautiful. He tries to bring down her fever and tells her that she was stung by a Portuguese Man-O-War.

Cassie and Hart get busy for the first time. She hasn't told him yet about Clone-Reva.

Thursday, April 9, 1998

Harley and Beth finalize their plan to put Carl behind bars. Harley pulls out a gun and tells Beth that she will shoot him if he tries to get away or threatens them.

Cassie goes to Josh's house to help him with the "Reva problem." She admits to him that she doesn't like Reva's clone. He tells her that he screwed up and almost kissed this woman, who has now locked herself in the bedroom in anger. While they're talking it over, Rob phones Cassie and tells her to meet him at the corner bar, Pete's, to discuss Tammy.

While Rob is waiting, Reva #2 comes in and announces that she's there to have some fun. She is dressed provocatively and begins flirting with Rob!

The real Reva snaps out of her sick delirium and recognizes the man who's been nursing her. She realizes that this marks the second time that he has saved her life, and she wants to know why he cares so much about her!

Carl grabs Beth again after she leaves Harley's place. He tells her she has exactly 6 seconds to convince him that the reason she went to see Harley wasn't to double cross him.

Rob asks Reva #2 if she's a "working girl." At first she doesn't know the term, but when she realizes he is asking if she's a hooker, she gets offended and starts to leave. Rob quickly stops her and apologizes. They dance.

Josh talks through the bedroom door to Reva #2 (he thinks she's staying in there for spite). He apologizes for hurting her feelings, but when she doesn't answer after several minutes, he breaks the door open and discovers her missing.

Cassie gets to the bar and spots Reva #2 dancing with Rob! She rushes to the phone to call Josh, who heads there immediately. When Cassie breaks in on Rob and Reva's dance, Rob puts it together that the woman who has been flirting with him is Cassie's sister, who then loudly proclaims herself "the new and improved Reva Shayne."

Phillip and Lizzie stop back at Harley's to remind her about Lizzie's party tonight. Harley tries to convince them to postpone it, but Phillip won't hear of it. So Harley grabs a few things to leave, and in her rush, forgets to bring the gun.

At show's end:

  • Carl kisses a frightened, disgusted Beth and tells her not to bring anyone with her when she meets him with the money.

  • Rob accuses Cassie of sleeping with Josh (hmmm...has Dinah been spreading this rumor?). When she sets him straight, he says, "Lie or no lie, it sure looks like Reva believes it."

  • Reva #2 (who is drunk by this time) climbs up on a bar table and threatens to tell everyone in the bar the whole unbelievable story of her creation. A shocked and alarmed Joshua and Cassie look on.
