Has Someone in Pine Valley Finally Rid the World of Michael Cambias?
The morning after the manhunt for a rapist the residents of Pine Valley scramble to get rid of evidence, fabricate alibis, and ensure loved ones that Michael Cambias will never be able to hurt anyone again. All centered around protecting Bianca, Reggie explains to her that Michael is nothing but a distant memory, dead, and burning in hell now…Maggie frantically pushes Bianca to run away with her and leave Pine Valley forever…Jackson returns the gun he stole from the evidence room…A bruised face David makes a secret phone call to Erica asking her if she regrets what they did last night… and Lena throws her gun in the water off the docks chanting to herself that “It’s over now Bianca”. At the police station Opal realizes that Palmer may have had something to do with Michael’s disappearance after she questions him about his whereabouts of the night prior and why he did not spring her out of jail. At Fusion, Juan Pablo is on a desperate search for brother, Carlos. When he eventually is found and questioned about his whereabouts on the night prior he alludes to having something to do with offing Michael. Greenlee later opens up to Juan Pablo and admits to wanting him to be her close friend. She confides in him the recent shenanigans Mary has her caught up in when he offers himself to help her find out the truth about Jackson secretly knowing that he was her father. Later in the day, Anna gets an anonymous tip from the police hotline that there could be a possible crime scene at Michael Cambias’ apartment. She rushes over to find her nephew Aidan and Mia who have broken in. When she questions them they explain that they smelled smoke coming from his unit and rushed in to see if anyone was in danger. Aidan then informs Anna that one of Michael’s suitcases is missing and could mean that he skipped town. Anna buys his story and tells the two that the police are there because of a tip she received saying that Michael was hiding drugs in his house and brings in Jackson to help with the matter. Before they leave one of the officers finds the kilo of coke hidden in his chimney and they put out a search warrant. Meanwhile in Nevada, Alexander continues to insist that Ryan handle Michael after his death and he finally agrees just before Alexander flat lines and dies.
