Reese: Well, good morning.
Bianca: Good morning.
Bianca: You know that painting, that Toulouse-Lautrec painting, that we both loved at that exhibit? What was it called? Devotion.
Reese: Yes, yes. It was of the two girlfriends.
Reese: One was watching the other one sleep.
Bianca: I was just inside that painting a second ago, watching you sleep.
Reese: Well, I can go back to sleep so you can continue to enjoy it --
Bianca: No, no, no. I like this picture even better.
Erica: Hello up there. Yoo-hoo, sleepyheads. It's time to get up. The guests are going to be here before you know it.
Bianca: And then reality set in.
Reese: Happy bridal shower.
Bianca: Thank you. You, too.
Erica: Oh, no. Actually, that goes on the main table, but not until we get the cloth down, of course. Bianca?
Bianca: We'll be down in a bit.
Erica: Ok, all right.
Zach: They would probably kill for a little more sleep. Leave them alone.
Erica: Oh, please. Trust me. They definitely want to get up. This is a very big day.
Zach: What are you planning?
Erica: Oh, lots of activities, lots of presents, and maybe a surprise or two.
Ryan: Hey, don't you have a bridal shower to be getting ready for?
Greenlee: Don't kid yourself. It's Erica's shower and Bianca and Reese happen to be involved. I'm the necessary evil.
Ryan: Come on, you're going to have fun. All your friends are going to be there. There are going to be games and jokes and whatever you do at a bridal shower.
Greenlee: I don't want to go.
Krystal: I did what you asked. I got Tad to sign the papers, and I signed them, too.
David: How do you feel?
Krystal: What do you mean?
David: Do you feel good about it?
David: Stop lying to me.
Dr. Sinclair: Excuse me, did Mr. Stone give you any problems last night?
Nurse: No. He's still sleeping.
Dr. Sinclair: All right, thank you.
Tad: What's up, Doc?
Dr. Sinclair: How did you get in here?
Tad: I followed her. I just -- I had to tell a bit of a white lie down at the guard -- at the gate. Hope it's all right.
Dr. Sinclair: What do you want?
Tad: Well, if it's ok, I just wanted to follow you around for awhile, you know? For the article -- just up close and personal, see what you do around here.
Dr. Sinclair: Oh, you haven't talked to them yet, have you?
Tad: To whom?
Dr. Sinclair: Ryan Lavery and his fiancée. Yeah, I know who you are. Tad Martin, private investigator. And I know exactly what you're after.
Krystal: I'm sorry. I didn't mean to make you angry.
David: Then stop lying.
Krystal: Look, I just didn't want to dump all my feelings and my problems on you.
David: If we can't be honest with one another, especially about our feelings, what the hell do we have?
Krystal: It's just been so complicated and so confusing. I mean, everything happened so fast. Babe died, and then the anxiety attacks, and then you, and then us. I mean, I just felt like I was bouncing around in the dark, and I didn't know where I was going to land. Half the time, I haven't even been thinking straight.
David: Do you regret it, you and me?
Krystal: No. No, you have been wonderful. You saved me. I was crazy with grief, and you helped me find my way through it. It's just that I cannot stop thinking about the what-ifs. What if Babe hadn't died? And then, on the other hand, what if you hadn't been there to help me through it when she did?
David: Stop, stop. Stop torturing yourself. Living with the what-ifs is a waste of time. You've got to figure out what it is that you want, Krystal. What do you need, right now? Or else you're going to be living in that dark place forever.
Krystal: You make it sound so easy to do.
David: It can be. I've opened up an escape hatch for you. All you have to do is go on through. Or you can just turn around and forget all about me. Rip up these damned papers and go back to Tad.
Tad: I guess I'm losing my touch. What was your first clue?
Dr. Sinclair: The chief of police who ran into you at the bar. It was quite obvious how surprised he was when I called you Mr. Pearson. But, if it's any consolation, he's what gave you away.
Tad: Now you're just trying to make me feel better.
Dr. Sinclair: No. You're wasting your time, regardless, looking into my past, because I'm quite professional when it comes to my methods. And I don't appreciate someone attempting to sway my diagnosis of a patient, trying to prove an ulterior motive on my part.
Tad: Look, Doc, I'm sure all Ryan really wants is to make sure that Annie's getting the best possible care.
Dr. Sinclair: No, Ryan Lavery would just like to see the mother of his child safely tucked away here for the remainder of her days, out of sight, out of mind, regardless of the truth.
Tad: Which is?
Dr. Sinclair: That she's faking her condition. And she's doing a really good job. She is not insane, and I intend to prove it.
Tad: Why are you so determined?
Dr. Sinclair: Because she is a cold-blooded murderess. She needs to pay for her crimes.
Tad: You know something, Doc? You and I have got something in common. We both make our living observing people. And I definitely get the sense there's more going on here than just you doing your job.
Dr. Sinclair: You were right the first time. You have lost your touch, because you have enough going on in your own life than to be meddling in mine. Your wife is sleeping with the same man that ruined your previous marriage. Wow, that's got to be an incredible psychological blow. But you know what? I could recommend a really good doctor, if you find yourself needing to talk to someone.
Tad: Honey, I'm handling it.
Zach: What are you up to?
Erica: What am I up to? Will you please stop thinking the worst of me? I mean, today is not just a day for celebrating, it's a day for forgiving. And I don't just mean Greenlee. I have been kind of harsh on Reese, and I want my daughter to be happy, so today is a party of reconciliation.
Zach: A new beginning.
Erica: Oh, that is very well said.
Bianca: Hi. Oh, my gosh! Amazing. Yeah, amazing. It really is. Oh, and the tablecloths are in the hall closet.
Reese: Yeah, Erica, this is really very, very kind of you.
Erica: Thank you.
Reese: Oh, you know it means the world to me. Not just the party, but you being so accepting. Thank you.
Erica: Well, my goodness, you're about to become a member of our family. So nothing could make me happier.
Zach: Well, this sounds like it's for girls only, so I'm out of here. Hey, come on in.
Amanda: Thank you. Hi.
Amanda: We thought we'd come early, see if we could help out.
Erica: Oh, good, Amanda. Well, it's going to be absolutely wonderful. We have some activities, lots of presents, and maybe a surprise or two.
Bianca: Why does that last part make me nervous?
Ryan: I thought bridal showers were part of the whole ritual?
Greenlee: They are. It's just these things are about being with your friends, and my best friend isn't going to be there. I'm sure Bianca feels the same way. It just seems so strange without Kendall.
Ryan: I know you've been thinking about her a lot lately. But you should know that you can talk to me any time you feel like it, all right? It's one of my many, many good qualities, listening.
Dr. Sinclair: Annie? We're going to do some visualization exercises.
Annie: What are those?
Dr. Sinclair: They're going to help you tap into your subconscious.
Annie: What for?
Dr. Sinclair: So that you can finally remember.
Krystal: No, I won't tear them up.
David: Why not? It will be a hell of a lot easier than you think. Tad will take you back, if that's what you're worried about. Maybe not right away, but eventually. All you'll have to do is convince him that it was all my fault, that I took advantage of your grief, drugged you with pills, lured you into my evil web. Tad will take you back faster than you can say "I'm just a pathetic victim."
Krystal: Stop it. I don't feel that way.
David: Then how do you feel?
Krystal: I don't know.
David: Then maybe you need to figure that out. Don't make any rash decisions until you do.
Tad: Got a minute?
Ryan: Yeah, come on in. Greenlee just left, but I wanted to call you. Sinclair came by here last night.
Tad: Yeah, I know. She just busted me. She took great pleasure in informing me what a lousy private investigator I am.
Ryan: That's what she came by to tell us.
Tad: It doesn't matter. I got a chance to see her in full indignation mode.
Tad: Did you or Greenlee say anything, anything at all, about Hayward coming between me and Dixie?
Ryan: No. No, where did that even come from?
Tad: She used it to brush me off, which means she's done her homework. Which means your instincts were spot-on from the very beginning. There's something definitely going on, and whatever her reasons are, they're personal.
Greenlee: They're beautiful. Thank you.
Randi: You're welcome.
Erica: Ok, so is everybody marking their cards?
Reese: Ok, so this glassware -- does that come under cooking and appliances?
Colby: Oh, no, you've got to have glassware on your card, like I do.
Opal: All I need is sexy lingerie and bed linens and I've got bingo.
Erica: Sometimes that's all it takes. Reese, this one's for you.
Reese: Oh, ok.
Opal: Oh, here, I'll help you. Oh, that's heavy. Wait, let me hold this.
Reese: Oh, thanks.
Amanda: What does that go under?
Randi: Scent and perfumes, maybe?
Opal: Yeah. Put it under perfumes.
Erica: And Greenlee, this one is for you.
Opal: Oh, wait, wait. Yes!
Greenlee: Wow. Amanda, they're gorgeous. Thank you.
Erica: Hello, please come in, come in. I'm Erica.
Claire: Yes, I know, I recognize you. I'm Claire.
Erica: It's so nice to meet you. Well, everyone, everyone, look who's here.
Claire: Reese. Oh, just like the one you got at your last shower.
Erica: Everyone, this is Reese's mother. This is Claire.
Claire: Hello. Please don't put a stop to all the fun.
Reese: Well, this is very unexpected.
Claire: Well, Erica can be very persuasive. You must be Bianca. Very nice to meet you.
Bianca: And you, too.
Claire: I had no idea you were Erica Kane's daughter.
Reese: Mother, does it make a difference?
Claire: Hello, I'm Claire Williams.
Greenlee: I'm Greenlee Smythe. Very nice to meet you.
Claire: Very nice to meet you.
Opal: Hello, there.
Bianca: How could you do this?
Erica: I thought this would be a really nice surprise.
Bianca: A nice surprise? You know how difficult this is for Reese. She and her mother don't get along at all. You know that. Her mother won't accept that she's a lesbian.
Erica: Well she's going to have to accept it now, isn't she? And even though Reese won't admit it, you know she would like to have her mother at her wedding, the two of them all reconciled. I was able to get through to Claire, mother to mother, that coming here today would be best for both of them. And look, see? They're starting to warm up.
Bianca: Yeah, or maybe that's just the fumes being lit. Excuse me.
Greenlee: Bianca's too nice to say it, but I'm not. You're tossing stink bombs in here, doing whatever you can to get between Bianca and Reese.
Erica: I am doing no such thing. My God, do you have such a jaded view of me?
Greenlee: Yes, actually, I do.
David: Her heart's pumping strong. Her organ systems are being perfused. But there's still no indication that she's coming out of the coma. You understand that, right?
Zach: She's fighting her way home. I can feel it. I'll be back.
Brot: Speaking from personal experience, it really is more than possible. I've been where she is.
Erica: You may have attached yourself to this wedding like a barnacle, but that doesn't give you the right to insult me or come between Bianca and Reese in any way. And I don't think Kendall would appreciate what you're doing any more than I do.
Greenlee: Kendall would do exactly what I'm trying to do -- shut you down before you blow Bianca's relationship all to hell just because you don't approve of her partner.
Erica: Well, the only one stirring up anything right now is you. So you just keep your nose out of my family business, and you focus on not hurting Ryan again.
Bianca: Would you like to meet Gabrielle? Your granddaughter. She's asleep upstairs, but I'd be happy to --
Claire: Oh, no, no. Please don't wake up the baby. It's all right. Please, everyone, just continue on with the party.
Opal: Oh, ok. I will. What's next?
Reese: I guess presents. Is that good? Ok. Is that for Bianca?
Opal: All right, let's see what's in there.
Opal: What is it?
Erica: I know it's a bridal shower, but I just couldn't resist getting something beautiful for Gabrielle to wear to the wedding.
Bianca: It's beautiful, Mom. Thank you so much.
Opal: It's got kind of a balloon skirt.
Bianca: Who might that be?
Tad: You've got to understand, from the second she found out that you and Greenlee asked me to start digging into her past, Sinclair started digging into mine. She's sending you a message. In a moment's notice, she's prepared to go on the offensive to keep anybody from stopping her.
Ryan: Annie is not faking this, all right? She's sick, and Sinclair is trying to send a sick person to jail instead of helping her.
Tad: It certainly looks that way. Do you want to stop her? We're going to have to find out what her reasons are, and what possible connection she could have to Annie's past.
Dr. Sinclair: I'm going to take you back in time, to a dark night and a lonely road.
Annie: I don't want to.
Dr. Sinclair: You've just left a cabin in the woods.
Annie: I don't know what you're talking about.
Dr. Sinclair: You get in the car with him.
Aidan's voice: Annie, I know you can remember. The things that are coming back to you, you can't talk about them.
Dr. Sinclair: With Richie.
Annie: I don't know anybody named Richie.
Dr. Sinclair: Yes, you do. He's your brother. You hate him. You blame him for all your problems with Ryan.
Annie: No, I don't remember any of this. You need to leave. I feel sick. I don't want to do this anymore.
Dr. Sinclair: That's when you decide you need to end his life, once and for all. Your car gets a flat.
Annie: Oh, no, stop, please. Please, God, don't make me do this. I don't want to talk about this. Please don't ask me to --
[Loud clanging of metal]
Greenlee: I didn't even realize you were in this hemisphere.
Mary: Well, I was on my way back from a show in Rotterdam, and I got Erica's message. Imagine my surprise. So, you're engaged to Ryan. Why didn't you call me?
Greenlee: I didn't know the Rotterdam area code.
Erica: I know, I know. It's a little unusual, but believe me, this -- this double wedding, this is going to be lovely.
Colby: Hey, wait, I got bingo!
Amanda: Look here, ladies.
Claire: So, are you two a lesbian couple as well?
Reese: No. No, Mother. No, Randi and Amanda -- they are heterosexual, and unlike some people, they can actually enjoy themselves with friends who are not straight.
Claire: Does that make you happy? Embarrassing me like this? Well, I guess I shouldn't be surprised. That's all you ever tried to do to me. Well, excuse me if this lifestyle choice of yours is still rather confusing.
Reese: Shut up, Mother. Just shut the hell up.
Annie: Get that away. Get that away from me!
Dr. Sinclair: You remember, don't you? Richie was working on the tire, and probably asked you to get that from the trunk, and that's when you decided that now is the time to end it all.
Aidan's voice: You can't talk about it.
Annie: No. Please, you're scaring me. I have no idea what you're talking about.
Dr. Sinclair: I am talking about the night you killed Richie.
Dr. Sinclair: The night you killed your own brother.
Dr. Sinclair: You remember, Annie, don't you?
Dr. Sinclair: We both know you do.
Annie: No -- stop it.
Dr. Sinclair: Admit it! Admit it right now! You killed your own brother in cold blood.
Annie: Leave me alone! Leave me alone!
Krystal: Oh, hi. I just -- I came by to see Jenny. Um, Winifred had an emergency. She asked me if I would come here and wait for you, so -- I hope that's ok.
Tad: Thank you.
Krystal: Ok, well, I guess -- I guess I'll be going.
Tad: Aren't you forgetting something? You were here. I mean, now that I've signed the divorce papers, shouldn't you be packing up your stuff? Moving over to Wildwind?
Brot: What's her GCS?
David: You've had medical training?
Brot: No. Just been in a coma myself. I was induced when they flew me home, and I died several times on the table.
David: Really? What was it like -- the coma? Do you remember any of it?
Brot: Yeah, I remember the dreams. You know, my friends, my mom, my fiancée. They were all there, but when I woke up, there was nothing but strangers. I remember thinking how I just wanted to crawl back to a place where there was no pain. Just be with my memories. I know it sounds strange, but waking up -- it almost felt like dying.
David: No. I think I understand. I wonder what kind of dreams she's having. And if given the choice, would she remain in that world or come back to this one?
Mary: Can I expect a wedding invitation soon?
Greenlee: Sure. Just let me know where you'll be.
Mary: Well, it's up in the air. But actually, I thought I might stay in town for a bit.
Mary: Mm. Look up Adam, see how he's doing.
Erica: Don't bother. He's moved on.
Mary: Well, it was worth a shot. No matter. I've got this gorgeous personal trainer who really misses me. Be happy, my darling.
Bianca: Greenlee, I'm so sorry about my mother's little surprises.
Greenlee: Not to worry. Give Reese my love.
Bianca: How could you do that to your daughter? I mean, really, what kind of mother are you?
Bianca: You know what? You and I have our own discussion to have. I -- I know that you say that you don't understand everything, but can you not see what you're doing to your daughter?
Claire: I've tried to understand. I want to understand.
Bianca: Oh, really? Is that why you hung up on me when I called to tell you that our baby was born? Or why you refused to go upstairs and look at her?
Claire: It's difficult enough for me to deal with Reese's --
Bianca: With what? Her problem? Her choice?
Claire: You have to realize, the last time I saw my daughter, she was engaged to a very nice man.
Erica: Uh, Bianca, why don't we go outside and have that discussion that we need to have, and let Reese and her mother talk?
Reese: It's ok.
Bianca: All right, fine.
Reese: I'm sorry.
Claire: You're sorry?
Reese: I'm sorry that you don't understand. I'm sorry that you can't accept that I didn't make a choice. You're the one that made the choice, Mother, and you continue to choose not to accept the fact that I am a lesbian.
Bianca: You don't like Reese, and you don't trust Reese. And so, true to form, you stick your nose in our business, and you try to ruin our bridal shower, and it's really not a --
[Erica throws snow at Bianca]
[Annie wields the wrench at Dr. Sinclair]
Dr. Sinclair: Is that how you did it, Annie? Is that how you killed Richie?
[Annie drops the wrench]
Dr. Sinclair: It took you long enough!
Annie: Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait. Go away, go away.
Reese: Don't you want to know what it's been like living a lie? I mean, Mom, I was so in-the-closet, I didn't even know it myself. All I knew is that I did not feel the way my friends felt about boys, and so I just hid my feelings. I hid my feelings because I knew that they would not approve, and I knew that you would not approve. And, yeah, I let it go on with Simon way too long, because I was trying to figure things out. I was confused. And you know what? I didn't want to hurt you.
Claire: Well, it did hurt me. And it still hurts me.
Bianca: I -- I can't believe that you threw snow on me.
Erica: Well, I'm sorry, I'm sorry. You were getting hysterical. I'm sorry. I'm sorry about the snow, and I'm sorry about bringing Reese's mother here.
Bianca: I -- I don't believe you. You think that Reese is out to get me, and -- and you keep seeing these looks between Reese and Zach, and you keep trying to make something of it, and there isn't anything there.
Erica: Look, I said I'm sorry, and I meant it. And -- and I made a mistake bringing Reese's mother here and thinking I could help Reese with her mother. But I got past whatever business there was between Zach and Reese, but obviously you haven't.
Bianca: I -- I can't believe you're saying this to me.
Erica: Where -- where are you going?
Bianca: There's somebody else that I need to talk to right now.
Krystal: I wish we could talk.
Tad: About what? What do we have left to talk about? I mean, I've certainly, you know, said my piece. Years ago, it was Dixie. Now look at all the people David's hurt -- you, me, Jenny, my father, Jake. He's even got Jesse and Angie going after one another. I've -- I've said it all. You know, I'm tired of trying to warn you, trying to get you to open your eyes. I got two little girls to look after. You cannot continually expect me to jump in and try and save you.
Krystal: I am not asking you to, Tad. I just wish you would see that David is just misunderstood.
Tad: I don't want to listen to you defend him anymore. That's the drugs talking, Krystal. It's got to be.
Krystal: He has not given me any --
Tad: He's been handing you handfuls of illegal and addictive drugs.
Krystal: How in the world did that get past the police?
Tad: I don't know, you tell me. How'd he do it? You know, I don't care. I don't care what he's got up his sleeve, all right? Do me a favor. I don't feel like sitting down here while you're upstairs packing. Just -- just go away. Come back another time when I'm not here.
Ryan: You ok?
Greenlee: No. I've been Erica'd.
Ryan: What did she do?
Greenlee: Invited Reese's mother without telling her. Inviting my mother without telling me.
Ryan: Mary is in the country? What happened?
Greenlee: I don't even want to talk about it. I'll get more upset.
Ryan: Ok. Hey, hey, hey, all right, all right, all right. Come here. Give me a kiss. You know what? How about a massage?
Greenlee: You know exactly what I need, don't you?
Ryan: No, I was talking about me, actually. I slept on my back really funny. It's killing me. Ok, come here. Come, sit. Sit. Tad stopped by earlier. He said he's going to continue to check out Sinclair, but he's got a really, really bad feeling about her, kind of like we did. And I don't know, but the whole thing is just making me feel --
Ryan: Yeah, uneasy.
Greenlee: I've been feeling like that for weeks now. Ryan, I had another dream. Annie got out, and she stabbed you and killed you.
Ryan: It was just a dream.
Greenlee: No, but it's not the only one. And now you and Tad are having weird vibes. You know, maybe we shouldn't be getting married just yet.
Ryan: Whoa, hey, slow down. Don't do this to yourself, ok? Stop. I'm going to go upstairs, and I'm going to make a nice hot bath with some bubbles.
Greenlee: No, I have to do something. I have to be somewhere now.
David: What are you looking for? These?
Krystal: These aren't just sedatives, are they? You switched them at the police station, right? These are something you created, and not just something illegal, something much worse, right? I don't need your damn pills. My God, what have you done? What have you done to me? It's not just the pills. It's -- it's -- it's worse. I need you. I can't leave you. I hate you. Please, just -- just throw me out. Throw me out. Just -- just get rid of me. Just let me go. I hate you! I hate you! I hate you.
David: Krystal, Krystal.
Dr. Sinclair: Feeling better now? Look, I need you to learn to trust me. It's the only way I can help you, and I want to help you. I need you to focus. Good. Good -- that's good. That's really good. All right, here. I want you to look at something, ok? Oh, no, no, no. No, no. It's time that you faced what happened. It's time that you know what you did. You remember, don't you? These are pictures of your brother, lying on the ground in his own blood. You remember, don't you, because you were there. You decided to put an end to it all. You decided to put an end to your own brother's life.
Annie: I -- that was -- I didn't mean to. I was trying to --
Reese: All my life, you tried to force me into being who you think I should be, instead of who I am, and you are still trying. Why? Why? Is it because your life is so screwed up? Is -- is it because you found yourself trapped in a marriage that's unhappy, with no sex at all? You broke Dad's spirit. You are trying to break mine. There is no --
[Claire slaps Reese as Zach walks in]
[Erica walks into her room, picks up a picture of Josh, and senses him touching her shoulder, then he disappears]
Greenlee: Somehow I'm not surprised you're here.
Bianca: Mm. Yeah, well, I've been thinking about her all day.
Greenlee: Me, too.
Bianca: She should have been there today at the shower.
Greenlee: Mm-hmm. She would have whipped everyone into line when things got nasty.
Bianca: Yeah. I need her so much right now. I want her by my side at the wedding.
Greenlee: I know. Me, too. I miss my best friend.
Bianca: What you guys have is more than just friendship. You're as much her sister as I am.
[As Bianca and Greenlee hold hands, Kendall's eyes flutter open]
