AMC by Suzanne

Henry & Maggie study. Another Asian person, Regina, tells Maggie ominously that if she gets involved with Henry, it will affect her whole future.  Maggie asks him what Regina meant.  He just says that Regina is very competitive and jealous that Henry always does better than she does.  They chat about their families. He is an only child with no father.  They talk about how Henry doesn't have a lot of friends because of his brain.  He charms Maggie and even makes jokes.  Simone is  arrested for defacing public property because she plastered Pine Valley with ads of Mia and Jake.  Maria is very sick so David tends to her, chewing out Edmund as he goes.  He tells Edmund that he has to take some blood and run tests before he can figure out what's wrong with her.  Jack tries to romance Mia but Simone's problems cause her to have to back out of a planned romantic weekend.  She stupidly doesn't tell him that Simone got arrested or what happens later.  Mia, Greenlee and Kendall go to the police dept. to help out Simone.  Greenlee is furious at Simone for tarnishing their reputation.  Simone was just trying to do her advertising job with no budget.  Smarmy lawyer Kenny rescues Simone and gets her out of trouble.  She has to pay $100 and take down all of the posters.   The women groan at the prospect of having to do all that.  Jake is very annoyed at Mia and also at the posters which feature him (without his permission).  Simone flirts heavily with Kenny.  Maria has a dream about Aidan; she is mostly unconscious but tells Edmund she just wants to die.  David can't promise him that she won't die but says if anything happens to her, it is Edmund's responsibility.  Edmund tells Maria that he caused what is happening to her.
