Tuesday, July 20, 1999

Looking like a pathetic puppy, Jesse once again asks Drew to marry him but Drew is evasive, seeming more preoccupied about Max's whereabouts.

Annie and Lizzie prepare to leave their hotel room once Annie discovers that Lizzie has called home. Meanwhile, Alan and India race to the hotel room as Alan reveals his plan to rescue Lizzie. India pleads with him to call the police but Alan refuses. Upon arriving at the hotel, India distracts Lizzie while Alan grabs Annie and tries to strangle her and toss her off of the hotel room balcony. Just in the nick of time, Alan is intercepted by Sam the Cowboy, a friend that Annie and Lizzie had met that day. Annie takes advantage of the moment and escapes.

Meanwhile, in San Cristobel , Richard drags Reva to the ominous locked room at the end of the hall only to discover a huge life size royal portrait of none other than Reva herself. On cue, Reva faints into the arms of Richard, who longingly strokes her cheek while she is unconscious. Upon awakening, Reva is initially furious, thinking the portrait is a hoax, but then begins to realize that Richard is telling the truth. He goes on to tell her that after she drove off of the bridge in Florida some fisherman from San Crstobel rescued her and brought her back to the island. Richard discovered her and nursed her back to health. Having no memory of her past life, Reva assumed the identity of Cathryn and, being madly in love, the two married. Reva is then horrified to learn that she and Richard had a son.

In another part of the castle, Olivia pouts and stews about her postponed engagement. Edmund agrees to help remedy the situation by throwing a "surprise" engagement party for Olivia and Richard, hoping to distract his brother long enough to get Reva out of the country.
