Monday, September 20, 2004

At the lighthouse, Michelle and Danny get closer as they prepare to make love. She asks him to be patient with her since she has no memory of ever making love and this will be like her first time. They are interrupted by a noise outside. It's Michelle's contractor who needs measurements so he can begin working on the renovations the next day. Michelle is excited her plans are moving faster than she expected. She apologizes to Danny that their romance has to be put on hold, but she wants to call Tony with the good news.

Tammy goes to a bar and orders a rum and coke. Tony is there and congratulates her for bluffing the bartender about her age. She wants to talk but Tony doesn't, telling her he has problems of his own. Tammy doesn't care and tells him she's tired of being good and perfect; she wants to be evil and mean like everyone else in town. Tony realizes Tammy is getting drunk and calls Sandy to pick her up. Sandy arrives and tries to comfort Tammy. She tells him the man she wanted to give herself to has gone and slept with someone else. Outside, someone watches Tammy and Sandy.

Tony arrives at the lighthouse and Danny accuses him of sending the contractor in an effort to disturb his time with Michelle. Tony denies it, saying he is only there because Michelle called him. Danny tells him whatever he thinks he has going with her he needs to remember Michelle is his wife and that's the way it's going to stay. Inside, Tony tells Michelle he has a surprise for her but she has to leave to see it. Michelle takes the bait and convinces Danny to stay behind with the contractor. Danny suspects Tony is only trying to get Michelle alone but doesn't say so as he glares at him. Outside, Tony confesses he bought Michelle a motorcycle. She is thrilled and wants to learn to drive it right away. Tony is happy Michelle likes her gift.

At the police station, Ross leads Dinah to the interrogation room where he says there are people waiting who could help her. Dinah realizes her audience is going to be Blake and Cassie. In the hall, Reva comments to Ross that he is very brave to let Dinah go in there and face her accusers. He assures her it is not bravery, but belief in his daughter and her desire to rehabilitate. Cassie leaves the interrogation room and joins them in the hall. Reva tells her she is willing to play 'good cop' if it will give Cassie what she needs from Dinah. Cassie is sure Dinah won't pass their pass their test, but will prove she's as hateful as ever. They return to the interrogation room where Dinah is waiting with Blake. Cassie and Blake hurl insults at Dinah while Reva plays devil's advocate hoping Dinah will snap. Dinah admits she once hated Cassie but now only wants to be loved and forgiven. Cassie wonders if Dinah's remorse is real, while Blake refuses the idea and insists she wants to see her rot in prison for the rest of her life. Jeffrey interrupts the gathering, saying they did not get approval from him and Ross can't grant it since he is guilty of aiding and abetting his criminal daughter.

Later at The Beacon, Ross tells Blake he can no longer be silent concerning her fury towards Dinah. Though he doesn't want to, he reminds Blake she has always stood by her father, Roger Thorpe, who has a long history of committing heinous deeds. Ross leaves. Blake receives a note from her father saying he will arrive in town on the 28th. She calls her father to confirm his arrival and tells him she misses him and needs him now.

At The Beacon, Sandy is receiving email messages from someone who repeatedly types 'You let him die.' Sandy asks who is sending this and receives the response 'Wouldn't you like to know?' He recalls holding the hand of someone who has just fallen over a cliff. He loses his grip and as the person falls, Sandy screams, 'Jonathan!'

She calls Phillip. They learn Zack is having outbursts and hitting other children. Harley tells his teacher Phillip is causing this, by what he is doing to Company.

Joey goes to the farm to talk to Tammy about him and Lizzie. He notices that she's a little tipsy, which she gets defensive about. After a little bit, Tammy admits that while she is mad, she doesn't hate him. Tammy then starts ranting about Lizzie and how she manipulates you while pretending to be your friend. Tammy suddenly wonders if Lizzie tricked Joey into sleeping with her, maybe she drugged him? Tammy asks Joey if that night is coming back to him, because she wants it to be all Lizzie's fault and tells him she loves him. Joey thinks back to not only his confronting Lizzie about drugging him, but also Lizzie's warning that Phillip will take Joey's mom's house away if the truth comes out. Although it appears as if he may tell Tammy the truth, Joey panics over the thought of he and his mom losing everything and blurts out that he slept with Lizzie because he wanted to. He tells her that he lied to her when he told her he didn't remember anything. Joey cruelly tells Tammy that he wanted to celebrate with a more experienced woman and Lizzie was there. After breaking her heart, he informs her that he's leaving for Boston University and wanted her to know the truth before he left. With that, he tells her they weren't meant to be. He leaves, with both him and Tammy devastated.

At Company, Sandy gets another mysterious email telling him that he can't hide. He's asked "Why did you kill Jonathan?" While a picture downloads from the screen, Reva happens by Sandy's table and he quickly closes the laptop so she can't see. As Reva and Sandy talk, they're being watched from the outside by J.B. Later, Reva and Sandy are conducting a pre-interview in regards to Reva's upcoming adoption segment. In the middle of the interview, Sandy starts imagining Reva confronting him about not being her son, accusing him of killing Jonathan to get the trust fund, and basically conning her by playing on her sympathy. Sandy has been nervous around Reva this entire time. After she leaves, the picture finally downloads--it is J.B.

Fresh from her conversation with Joey, Tammy encounters J.B. outside Company. Flirting, she lets him know that her mother and Edmund will be gone for the night, subtly inviting him to the farm. Although he declines the offer, she kisses him, thinking he might change his plans. Smiling, he tells her he can't say no to her. As she walks off, he calls her "cousin"

At the police station, Edmund berates Jeffrey for scaring Cassie into changing her statement, and accuses him of doing it so Cassie would never find out he was impersonating Richard. As the men bicker, Ross walks in ready to pick up Dinah. Jeffrey and Edmund are both speechless since Edmund saw Dinah leave already--he assumed she got in Ross's car. Edmund suddenly gets frantic and starts calling Cassie but she can't be found. Edmund and Jeffrey suddenly suspect that Dinah may have abducted Cassie. Later, Jeffrey and Edmund race to farm to find Cassie, but she's not there. Jeffrey informs Edmund that Cassie's car was spotted and tries to reassure him that she can take care of herself. But Edmund finds the gun box empty and tells Jeffrey his suspicion--that Dinah stole the gun and carjacked Cassie.

Blake is leaving a message on Roger's machine telling him to call her. She knows he was supposed to come in today, but she has no idea when. Later, she meets up with Ross, who has been trying to reach her about Dinah. When he tells her about Dinah and Cassie disappearing, Blake immediately suspects that Dinah's going to kill Cassie. She then laments that if her father were, this never would have happened. A suspicious Ross asks Blake if she called Roger about Dinah, but Blake denies it.

Cassie's in her car with Dinah, telling her they're going to a neutral location so they can discuss how they are going to coexist in the same town. Finally they stop in a secluded spot in the woods where suddenly Cassie pulls out a gun and aims it right at Dinah. Rattled, Dinah asks Cassie what she wants and promises she'll leave her family alone. But a cold Cassie doesn't believe her. Cassie thinks Dinah's spent the last five years hating her and waiting to get back at her. Cassie tells her she wants justice for Hart and her family. Dinah tells her she doesn't believe she'll kill her--Cassie's a princess and princesses don't do that. Dinah calmly tells Cassie that Cassie has always felt superior to her, she wouldn't "stoop herself" to Dinah's level. When it becomes obvious that Cassie's not backing down, Dinah tells her she wont' get away with it, Cassie informs her that she'll lie and say it was self defense. Her story will be that Dinah kidnapped her at gunpoint and Cassie was forced to kill her.
