Monday, April 30, 2001

After they leave the warehouse, Jen asks Cristian about his work with R.J., and Cristian asks her about what has been troubling her lately. Neither opens up, but both agree that they trust each other, and they kiss.

After finding Colin at the warehouse, Bo discovers that Sophia has been badly injured saving Antonio's life; a worried Antonio accompanies her to hospital. When Roseanne believes that Antonio has been injured, she rushes to see him.

Max, Blair, and Kelly arrive at the hospital, where Max demands that Blair take a pregnancy test. Blair eventually agrees, but asks Kelly to fix the test. When the results come back positive, Blair believes that Kelly did her job, but Kelly reveals that she did nothing: Blair is really pregnant!

John hauls Todd down to police headquarters for breaking into Rae's house. When Ben arrives to talk to Bo, he and Todd argue over Viki, and Todd figures out that Ben does not know where Viki is.

At Gina's, Niki Smith confuses Gina with her wild behavior, even offering her pointers on how to seduce Ben. Later, Viki returns and remembers nothing, but is stunned at Gina's mention of Niki. Gina sneaks into Llanfair, hoping to find out who Niki Smith is, and is caught by Todd, out on bail and demanding to know what she has done to his sister.

Tuesday, May 1, 2001

An upset Blair contemplates being pregnant by Max. Kelly urges Blair to use the situation to stay out of prison. Max comes in the room concerned for her health, but Blair lashes out at him. He tells her being shot in the back is pretty hard to get over, but Blair reminds him that seeing him in bed with Skye is hard to get over too. Her "plan" takes a turn as her real feelings come to the surface.

Todd continues to threaten Gina, and demands to know where Viki is. He warns her that she doesn't want to see what happens when Viki gets really mad. He tells Gina that she doesn't want "all seven" of them after her. Gina begins to realize that Todd is talking about Viki's multiple personality disorder. When Todd becomes too forceful, Gina pulls a gun on him. Todd backs off just as Ben walks in. Ben orders Todd to leave and Gina questions Viki's sanity. Ben blows her off and refuses to leave with her even as she begs him.

Back at Gina's, in the basement, Niki comes on to a confused James. He turns her away, but monitors her on his television. Later, Viki wakes up and sees the red lipstick on her wineglass. She looks at her clothes and realizes her "alter" is emerging.

Antonio hovers over the injured Sophia. Just as Sophia is about to spill her guts about the mole in the department, Roseanne walks in. She asks Sophia about the bust and wonders why they didn't catch R.J. at the docks. Sophia informs her that Colin's body was found in a crate at the warehouse. Antonio wonders why Roseanne knew anything about the bust. When Antonio and Roseanne leave together, she asks him if it seemed like Sophia was looking at her funny and if she had said anything about her earlier. Kelly comes in afterwards and Sophia confides in her that she is absolutely positive that Roseanne is the snitch.

Melanie runs into Bo and he tells her about the body. When she is alone she imagines a dead Colin laughing at her when everyone finds out her secrets. Bo pushes Hank to press charges against R.J. for being involved in Colin's murder, but Hank is hesitant without enough hard evidence. Bo and Hank barge into Break Bar, and Bo accuses R.J. of having the crate with Colin's body. R.J. denies it and Cris covers for him. R.J. reminds Bo that Lanie was married to Colin, Lindsay had an affair with him, and Nora was kidnapped him. A sarcastic R.J. tells Bo to ask one of his paramours what happened to Colin. Later, R.J. gets angry with Roseanne for giving him false information. Word of Colin's body being found slowly spreads over the news. Jess and Jen are together as they hear the official announcement. Jess notices how nervous and suspicious Jen is acting. Cris arrives and admits that the body was found in a crate at the warehouse.

The coroner tells Bo that a blond hair was found and Lanie, Jess, Lindsay and Jenn all flash in his mind...

May 2, 2001

As Jess bids Will goodbye (or was it hello as she didn't hear him come in the previous night) Ben shows up at the apartment looking for Viki. Unfortunately, Jess has no clue to her mom's whereabouts as she hasn't heard from her either. She promises to find out during their next phone call so that Ben can fly out to surprise her. Ben is troubled that Jess hasn't spoken with her.

Gina obtains info on DID (dissociative identity disorder) from James the bodyguard while downstairs in her house, Viki is having nightmares regarding her imprisonment. Later, Gina views tapes of some her previous conversations with Viki and Niki while James pays Viki a visit. She doesn't remember their last conversation until he calls her Niki and she realizes why. She begs him to let her out and if he does, she'll give up Ben. She begins to hyperventilate and while James rushes off to get her a glass of water, he returns to find Niki waiting for him.

At the Palace, Max is having remorse over his treatment of all of the people in his life while Renee wonders if the new expected child will change him. Max insists he will be the best father ever but Blair still has to go to jail. Asa wanders over and begins to tell Max what a lousy son and father he's been, wondering when the last time was that Max has even seen any of his kids. Max tries to convince Asa that he always loved and admired Asa as opposed to the real Buchanan sons and he will be a better father thanks to him. Asa scoffs at him and tosses down his divorce papers to Renee, convinced that it's a mistake because he knows she still loves him. She denies it, stating that besides him lashing out and shutting down, he also tried to kill her son. Asa makes a phone call to someone-he wants the person to put something together.

Kelly wants Blair to get Max to drop charges against her. Blair is quite unhappy that she's pregnant with Max's child as she wants nothing to do with him. Her cousin suggests that maybe the baby is really Todd's but Blair is quite sure it's Max's and that it's going to kill Todd. Todd arrives to speak with Blair so Kelly leaves them alone. He congratulates Blair for stabbing him in the back and twisting the knife, especially after he was willing to go to jail for her. Blair wants to go back to their wedding day but Todd calls it a fairy tale. They argue over the pregnancy though Todd insists he never really wanted a baby, that he would have done it for Starr. Blair wants to be the one to break the news to Starr; Todd promises that he has plenty of new ways to hurt Blair, which he'll reveal soon. Max shows up to see Blair (who has taken off to hide from him) and rubs salt in the wound by taunting Todd with the pregnancy. He calls Todd a loser but Manning insists that it always turns out the other way-he compares their games to chess and states that he's the master of the end game.

While Antonio is visiting with Sophia in the hospital, Roseanne pays a visit. After Antonio leaves them alone to chat, Sophia mentions that R.J. has been caught and wonders why he wasn't tipped off again. Roseanne suggests that perhaps either the traitor is outside of the department or maybe they got the wrong information. She leaves the room with a sigh of relief when Sophia doesn't say anything further on the matter and runs into Antonio. She lies that she's upset because she thought he was the one who was hurt. Kelly looks perplexed when she sees the pair in a hug as she exchanges snide comments with Antonio. She's brought some gifts and gives them to an upset Sophia who has decided to enlist Kelly in helping her to get Roseanne.

After Ben leaves, Jess peruses the newspaper article on Colin. She receives a visit from Gina who claims she's been trying to reach Viki. Jess invites her in when she begins to cry. She has a cousin who has just been diagnosed with DID, she says, and wanted Viki to tell her how to handle it. She gets Jess to talk about Viki after revealing that "her cousin" has a problem very similar to the Viki/Niki personalities. Jess confirms her mother's problems but insists that she worked very hard to be cured and nothing could ever bring the problem back. Jess seems confused by the conversation but once Gina leaves, Will returns. They decide to make up by no longer talking about Colin and to start their lives over. As they head towards the bed, the phone rings. It's Bo and he wants to see Jess down at the police station.

As Niki flirts with James, he tries to refuse her advances. She grabs him to dance and manages to get a key out of his pocket. Back upstairs, Ben has returned to the house. He believes he knows what has happened to Viki.
