J.R.: Yeah, you ok?
Amanda: Yeah, I just -- I wanted to thank you for understanding why I can't go back to the mansion.
J.R.: Yeah. Well, home's not always where the heart is, especially when it comes to Adam Chandler's home.
Amanda: But mostly I want to thank you for your forgiveness. After what I did to you, getting involved with David, I really don't deserve it.
J.R.: Yeah, well, you're not the first woman to be tricked by David Hayward. But you don't need to worry about that. What you need to worry about is you, your health, and the baby's health.
Amanda: Our baby's.
J.R.: Yeah, after your scare, it put a lot of things in perspective for me. I promise you, I'm going to do whatever it takes to keep you and that baby safe.
Tad: I thought I heard somebody out here. Hopefully, we'll get a break in the weather soon.
J.R.: Yeah, I'm not sure that it's over with yet.
Tad: Definitely. Come on, come on inside.
Amanda: Oh, are you sure this is ok -- me moving in like this?
Tad: Oh, sure. We never get any visitors at the castle. You know, most people stay away from miles around.
[Amanda and J.R. laugh]
Tad: Anyway, welcome home, honey.
Amanda: Thank you.
Jake: Hey, hi. How's our girl doing?
Jake: You all right?
Amanda: Good, yeah.
J.R.: She overdid it today.
Amanda: I wouldn't have missed Greenlee's memorial for the world.
Jake: Yeah, it was a really nice memorial, bittersweet.
Ryan: Since the accident, I have been -- I've been waiting for somebody to wake me up, to kick-start my life again. And today I realized that that's not going to happen, and nobody's going to do that, that I'm alone.
Kendall: No, you're not. No.
Opal: Oh, uh -- sorry, sorry.
Ryan: What do you want?
Krystal: Opal was just telling us something that we thought you should hear, but it's nothing that can't wait.
Opal: Yeah, Krystal is right. It's -- it's nothing that we need to bother with right now.
David: I am sorry, Ryan. I always knew why my brother loved Greenlee so much. She was an incredible woman. She'll be missed.
David: I also know that she would want you to get on with your life as soon as you can.
David: My condolences.
Ryan: What were you -- what were you talking to him about?
Opal: It was nothing, really.
Ryan: It was about Greenlee, wasn't it?
Doctor: Ms. Williams, tell me what you see.
Reese: Nothing. I see nothing. Oh, my God. Oh, my God.
Doctor: All right, I don't want you to get upset. This is not uncommon. I'm not surprised, given the extent of your injuries. Try and calm down.
Reese: No, I can't. I can't see anything. I can't see. Would you just get away from me? You did this to me! You did this!
Jake: Here you go.
Amanda: Thanks. I never would have been able to survive Fusion and Kendall if it hadn't been for Greenlee.
Amanda: She always knew when to stick up for the little guy, you know? I never got a chance to thank her, tell her how much I appreciated what she did for me.
Amanda: I'm really going to miss her.
Jake: Yeah, but let's -- let's stop with the sad talk, and let's talk about good things, right? Like you're doing better, the baby's in good shape, right?
Amanda: Scared the hell out of me, though.
Jake: Yeah, but you're here now and we're going to take very good care of you, me and my brother. Very good care of you.
Tad: You know, Babe would be proud of you.
J.R.: For carrying the heavier one? Why, I figured since I was younger, stronger, better-looking --
Tad: No, no, I was talking about sobering up and being there for Amanda. That means a lot, you know? I'm glad you could see past her mistakes. She's a good person. I'm proud of you. I'm glad you could find it in yourself to forgive her.
J.R.: Well, I have to... for the baby. They both need protecting from my dad, from David. And, you know, my son or daughter deserves better than that.
Tad: Well, mother and child will be safe here.
J.R.: I appreciate it.
Jake: And a little kicking's ok, and a karate chop, but no scaring Mom. Those are doctor's orders.
Jake: Come on, I'll take you upstairs. I'm going to show her how the heat works in her room.
Tad: I'll bet.
Krystal: I was going to try to beat the storm home, but then I wanted to stop by and say good night to Jenny. Is that ok?
Tad: Yeah, come on in.
Krystal: Well, are you -- are you moving in?
J.R.: No, Amanda is.
J.R.: Yeah, my dad's not putting up with her at the house anymore.
J.R.: Well, he found out that she was working for David.
Krystal: I -- I don't understand.
J.R.: Amanda was on David's payroll. Her job was to get me drunk and make me into an unfit father. Yeah, gotta love that new husband of yours, don't you?
Reese: Oh, my God. Oh, my God.
Zach: No, no, you heard the doctor.
Reese: Just stop it, just shut up, just get away from me! Get out.
Doctor: I think maybe you should leave.
Zach: This is not permanent. Who are the best in the country, the best in the world? Let's get them. Let's fly them out here.
Reese: Oh, my God, just leave me alone.
Doctor: Look, if you don't leave, I'm going to have to go get security.
Zach: Not until she knows that this isn't hopeless.
Doctor: Well, that's my job to tell her that, not yours. Ms. Williams, I'm going to be back in a moment.
Reese: You had to try and force me out, didn't you? Huh? You had to get rid of your little problem. What right did you have to do that, huh? I was staying for Bianca. Oh, my God, Bianca. I may never see her beautiful face again, or Gabrielle, or Miranda -- will you stop this? You stop this. Stop trying to tell me what to do. What are you doing here, anyway? Huh? What do you want from me now?
Ryan: What were you talking about with David? What, was it about Greenlee?
Opal: I was having some very, um -- very strong vibes.
Kendall: What kind of vibes?
Opal: Well, usually when a person dies, you know, their spirit moves on, and you no longer get a sense that they're around. You don't feel them, but -- and we figured that was the case with Greenlee.
[Opal clears throat]
Opal: But then -- then tonight when the lights flickered, I felt it -- I felt her, Greenlee, so strong -- alone, someplace cold.
Ryan: Opal -- Opal, I love you. I love you, but you've got to stop doing this, ok?
Opal: But you -- you -- you asked me to contact her. You were desperate.
Ryan: I know -- I know I did. But I can't do this. I can't have people reopen the wound with what-ifs and with maybes.
Opal: I understand. I'm sorry, shouldn't have said anything.
Ryan: No, I asked you to, and I appreciate it, but now I'm asking you to stop, please.
Opal: Well, I can't stop having the feelings, Ryan, but I can stop, you know, banging my gums about it to you.
Opal: Are you going to be all right?
Kendall: Yeah, yeah.
Ryan: I'll make sure that she gets home ok.
Opal: All right, well, then I'll -- I'll be getting on -- on home, too. Good night.
Kendall: Ryan, do you think that maybe it's --
Ryan: No. No, I don't. Greenlee's gone.
Kendall: Oh, God, it feels just like that night, the night of the tornado, when everything went so wrong.
J.R.: You married the man. You should know how he operates by now.
Krystal: So what exactly are you saying that he did?
Tad: He gave Amanda a substantial amount of money so that she would convince J.R. to start drinking again. David wants him to appear as unfit a father as possible.
J.R.: I was vulnerable. He knew that. It didn't take much of a push.
Krystal: All so he could take Little A from you?
J.R.: Yeah, is he getting the bedroom ready for my son at Wildwind? Because that's what he's all about. He's about getting my son, ever since Babe died. He even married Babe's mother to create the appearance of a stable house for the court system.
Krystal: No. That is not why he married me.
J.R.: No, it isn't? Do you ever look at yourself in the mirror and you don't ever believe that?
J.R.: There's only one thing standing in the way of custody of my son, and that's me. It's not going to happen, so you can take that promise back to your new husband and tell him that he is not taking any of my children away.
Tad: It's interesting.
Tad: You're not denying it. Maybe somewhere there's a small part of you that recognizes the truth, that you're just another tool hanging off of David's belt.
[Door opens and closes]
Jake: What was that all about?
Tad: Oh, a little electroshock therapy. I think Hayward's going to have a little explaining to do when she gets home.
Adam: Ah, there you are. I've been wondering what you were up to.
J.R.: I was helping Amanda move in with Tad and Jake.
Adam: Bravo. I'm proud of you, son.
J.R.: Yesterday I was a self-pitying fool. What changed?
Adam: Oh, that's because I didn't know what you were up to. Being a knight in shining armor for Amanda, moving her in with the Martins, hmm? Keeping her away from big, bad Adam. No, that lying little bitch is going to think you really care about her. You're teeing her up just in time for the baby to come. She won't suspect a thing.
J.R.: I'm not playing Amanda. I'm protecting her... from you.
Kendall: If that tornado really was an act of God, what did I do to make him so angry? That storm took me from everything and everyone almost forever. It brought David Hayward back to town. It took Babe. It caused Reese and Bianca to stay. And isn't that what ultimately led to -- to Greenlee going into the river?
Ryan: You know, I've been doing the same thing. I've been trying to connect the dots back to the beginning, and I'm wondering what could have happened differently, what I could have done differently. The wedding that never happened. The dark road that night.
Kendall: And me at the wheel of the car. Why don't you blame me?
Ryan: Because -- because you weren't responsible, Kendall, you weren't. Zach was. Ok, his selfishness, the fact that he didn't tell you about the baby, the fact that he had a relationship with Reese -- all of that. Ok? You were not responsible. He was, and certainly God wasn't.
Kendall: I love him so much. I just want to know why he did what he did. I mean, I wake up from a coma, and I find my husband having been captivated by this strange woman. And then my sister was there with his child? I mean, they had a chance to tell me beforehand, but they didn't, and I just -- I can't figure out why.
Ryan: That's all I want to know, too. I just want to know why. I want to know why all this had to happen.
Kendall: So, I mean, what do we do? How do we move on?
Ryan: I don't know. Maybe the only way for us to move on is for --
Kendall: For -- for what?
Ryan: I don't know. I don't know. I don't know what to do. I don't know. I haven't -- I don't know.
Kendall: Maybe the only way for us to move on is to... Try to get past it together. That's what you were going to say, isn't it?
Reese: What, are you playing games with me? You want to torment the blind girl?
Zach: I want to help.
Reese: No, you want to make sure that I'm not going to go after you for this. And I already told you that I won't. Ok? But you just -- you got to be extra nice to Reese just in case, or she can make your life miserable, right? I'm not like the rest of the snakes in this town, Zach. I'm not looking for revenge wherever I can get it. I really don't blame you for this, ok? It just happened. All right, you feel guilty? That's your problem, fine. You just stew in it, ok? But just please leave me alone and please get out of here.
Angie: Reese, it's Angela Hubbard. You're ophthalmologist told me how upset you were.
Reese: Yeah, well, I'm blind. How am I supposed to react?
Angie: There is a very good chance that this is temporary. There's hope. But you -- you're going to have to work with us.
Reese: That's fine. As soon as Zach gets out of here.
Jesse: Hey. I just spoke to Reese's ophthalmologist. He told me about her loss of vision and your refusal to leave her alone.
Zach: So what are you going to do -- are you going to arrest me again?
Jesse: Not at the moment. But if she changes her mind and decides to press charges --
Zach: She should. She should have me locked up.
Adam: No, you can't be serious. That trollop was in league with David Hayward. She's the one in charge of making sure you lost your son.
J.R.: Yeah, Amanda played me. For big bucks, too. But that was out of fear and desperation.
Adam: So you fight back.
J.R.: You know, Dad, this might be a concept that you're not going to be able to grasp, but I'm going to do the decent thing. I'm going to let her raise that child on her own, and if she'll let me in her life and that child's life, I'll be forever grateful.
Adam: And where is she keeping your manhood? In a little box on top of the fridge?
J.R.: I'm going to let her take care of that child and never take it away, but I am going to keep that child from you. You're just going to have to learn to live with it, Dad.
Adam: Well, is she going to live with it? Everyone knows you're a sick man, how easily you fall off the wagon. You think she's going to want you near her kids? Huh? Take a whiff, and baby, you're off, you're gone, you're down.
J.R.: Not anymore. I'm determined to stay sober from now on. I'll prove it to you. There. Just keep it right there. Let the smell permeate the room all day. All week -- I don't care. I'm not going to touch it. Maybe then you'll see just how serious I am.
David: Hey --
Krystal: Son of a bitch.
Krystal: All this talk about you wanting only me. How you're innocent of everybody's accusations. No more scheming, no more manipulating. It was all lies.
David: Whoa, whoa, what the hell is going on?
Krystal: Go ahead, go ahead, deny it. Tell me that you're not trying to take Little A away from the Chandlers. Are you going to deny that you didn't pay Amanda to set up J.R.?
David: Of course I did. The woman was righteously pissed off at him. She was hell-bent on revenge. It was practically her idea.
Krystal: Oh, so you don't deny it.
David: Absolutely not. But you are wrong on one big point, however. I had no intention of taking Little A away from anyone. I was just protecting the boy.
Krystal: Then why did you pay Amanda to get J.R. drunk?
David: The man is a raging alcoholic, Krystal. He is a danger to our grandson. It's just a matter of time before he does something. I was just taking action before he did. I put a big fat arrow over J.R.'S head so that everyone could see what a danger he is to our grandson. So if you want to hit me for caring for Little A, go right ahead.
Krystal: You can color this any way you want. It's all a game. It's a trick. It's a way to give you a stable home so that you can convince some judge to hand you Little A. You have been using me, just like you've been using Amanda.
David: You couldn't be more wrong. I married you because I love you. And if I want a stable home, it's so that we could raise our children, not J.R.'s.
Krystal: You're lying. You have been lying all along.
David: Krystal, I'm trying to protect the boy.
Krystal: You can hate J.R. and Adam all you want, but they would never let anything happen to that little boy. That house is every bit as safe as this house, probably safer.
Zach: Did I go over there to hurt her? No, I did not, Jesse.
Jesse: But you were angry with her?
Zach: Yes, I was. I wanted her to leave town.
Jesse: Sure about that?
Zach: I'm not an idiot. I've got a wife. I've got a family. I'm going to protect them.
Jesse: So, there was no emotional connection between the two of you?
Zach: Did we have an affair? Is that what you are asking me? No, we did not, Jesse. We did not.
Jesse: All right, ok, all right.
Zach: And if she wants to punish me for this, I get it. I accept it. I'm not asking for forgiveness. That's not what I want. I want my family back. I want my wife back. That's what I want.
Jesse: Well, then, what are you doing here? Why aren't you with your wife?
Ryan: I should get you home.
Kendall: I don't want to go home. I don't want to fight anymore.
Ryan: Hey. Is that really why you don't want to go?
Kendall: I'm more afraid of not finding him there. I'm scared I pushed him too hard this time.
Ryan: He's angry.
Kendall: No, Ryan, it's more than anger. There's a part of Zach that no one can touch, not even me. It's -- it's this place he goes to inside himself, the place he went to when he was younger, when he was running from his father. And he won't admit it's still there, but I know it is. And he'll keep on going there if he has to. I've made things worse with my ultimatums and demands. And I can tell pretty soon he's -- he's going to explode. And he'll be gone. Whether it's into Reese's arms or just... out of the house into his own world, I don't know. But I am driving him away. I can feel it. God, how -- how could I be so aware that I'm doing it, and I still go ahead and I do it? I mean, what is wrong with me? Am I that self-destructive?
Ryan: You can't analyze. You can't analyze it like that, Kendall. Love drives us. It's not the other way around. I mean -- I mean, my love for Greenlee is a good example. It wasn't without its collateral damage, you know? It broke Annie. It ultimately broke me. And you and Zach -- I mean, you're on the same trajectory, Kendall.
Kendall: So what the hell can I do about it? I remember how amazing we were together. But since I woke up, I can't feel it.
Ryan: Well, it's not too late. I mean, whether Zach has run off some place or not, I mean, ultimately... it's not too late, because he's alive, which... means you still have hope.
Krystal: Adam? Adam? Oh, my God. Oh, my God. Baby. Baby, what happened?
Little A: I drank it.
Krystal: You drank it? Oh, no.
[Little A groans]
Krystal: You're going to be ok. Help! Somebody help!
J.R.: Krystal? What is it?
Krystal: He drank some booze. I don't know where he got it or how much he drank, but it made him sick.
J.R.: Oh, my God. That was a full glass of scotch.
Krystal: You knew it was there?
J.R.: Yeah. I -- I -- I poured it -- I would have -- to prove a point to my dad.
Krystal: And you just left it there? God, J.R., what were you thinking?
Little A: I wanted to be like you, Daddy.
J.R.: Oh, buddy. Oh, I'm so sorry. But we're going to make you feel better, ok? You're going to feel a lot better, ok?
J.R.: Come here.
Krystal: Got him?
J.R.: Yeah, I got him.
Adam: What are you doing here? What happened?
J.R.: He drank the scotch that I put out there.
Adam: Oh, my God. Uh, ok -- look, I've got a -- a friend, a good friend that's a doctor. He's not far away. He'll come and take care of him.
Krystal: Ok, the paramedics are on their way.
Adam: Paramedics? Oh, my God, you've set this up, haven't you? This is all part of Hayward's plot to take our grandson away from us. You set this up. You are a sick, twisted woman.
Actress on TV: ¿Paulo? ¿Eres tú? ¿Quién está allí?
Jake: I didn't know you watch these.
Jake: You speak Spanish.
Amanda: "Sí" is about as far as it gets. But you don't have to to enjoy them.
Jake: That's exactly why I watch them.
Amanda: You do not.
[Actress on TV gasps]
Actress on TV: Carlos!
Jake: I do -- I'll prove it to you. See him? That's the boyfriend. Muy macho. And he's demanding from her right now that she tells him that she has not been unfaithful.
Actor on TV: ¿A quién esperabas?
Actress: Nadie. Me sorprendiste. Eso es todo.
[Actors on TV continue to speak Spanish]
Amanda: No. No, you're so wrong. She's in love with him.
Jake: No, no, no. See -- see, this is what's going on. He has uncovered her dirty little secret, and she's trying to convince him -- she's trying to convince him -- she's like, "Hey, it was nothing. It was a lapse of judgment. That's what it was."
[Actress on TV speaking Spanish]
Jake: But when she sees that he's not buying it, she pulls a gun. "Yes, yes, ok? Yes, I love him. We -- we -- we are going to be married." Watch.
[Actor on TV speaking Spanish]
Amanda: Oh, my gosh. She just pulled a gun. How did you know that?
Jake: Yeah, she pulled a gun, but she doesn't want to kill him with the gun. She just sort of wants to, you know, fend him off for a little while. But when he sees the gun, he comes closer to her, right? He comes closer, because you know what? "If I can't have you -- if I can't have you, then you might as well kill me right now." Watch, they're going to struggle for the gun.
[Actor on TV speaking Spanish]
Jake: And then suddenly -- bang!
Jake: He's dead.
Jake: Dead. And you know what? It's really sad because it's all for nothing. Because Paulo, the guy that she loved, has already taken off with the daughter of the Mafia boss.
Actress on TV: Oh, Carlos! Carlos!
[Gunshot on TV]
Amanda: Oh, my God. She just shot him. How did you know she was going to do that?
Jake: Maybe I saw this episode overseas last -- the last time I was there.
Amanda: Oh, you are so bad.
Amanda: Oh, my God. You're funny, though. No one makes me laugh like that anymore except you.
Doctor: The drug therapy is just the first step.
Angie: Sometimes when the eyes are injured, pressure can build up in the brain. And it can take a little time for that to heal. We're just going to have to be patient. And the pain meds should help keep you comfortable.
Doctor: I'll be back to check on you later.
Angie: Would you like me to call Bianca?
Reese: I want her love and forgiveness, not her pity.
Angie: Let me help.
Reese: No --
[Object hits floor]
Reese: I can do it myself.
Angie: Reese, listen to me.
Reese: Just -- I can do it!
Angie: Reese, listen to me. I know that this is frustrating. I know it's frustrating. You're just going to have to give it time.
EMT: How much did he consume?
Adam: There seems to be some debate on that subject.
J.R.: It was a full glass of scotch. How you doing, buddy?
[Chatter on EMT radio]
Zach: Hey. Kendall here?
Opal: Uh, well, she was here earlier. I forgot my bag. Just came back for it. Are you all right?
Zach: Yeah, I'm fine. Just looking for my wife. She's not at home.
Opal: Well, she -- she was -- you know, it was hard for her, the service and saying goodbye to Greenlee and all. I was surprised you weren't here.
Zach: Where is she?
Opal: She was here with Ryan. They were, uh -- stayed after the service -- uh -- they --
Zach: Where is she?
Opal: Uh, well, I don't know. I assumed Ryan took her home.
Kendall: A lot of good that did, Ryan. Thank you. I am -- I am now completely drenched, and I'm freezing.
Ryan: I was trying to be a gentleman and make up for my disappearing umbrella trick that I pulled there. Sorry.
Kendall: Oh, my God. I must look like a drowned rat.
Ryan: No, you don't look like a drowned rat. You could never look like a drowned rat. A drowned poodle maybe. But not a drowned rat.
Kendall: [Laughing] Thank you very much.
Ryan: You're welcome.
Kendall: Ooh. How do you do that?
Kendall: Oh, well, a little while ago, I was exhausted from crying and worried about my life.
Kendall: And now here I am laughing again.
Ryan: Well, I don't think anybody... wants to be sad. You know, I think it's probably human nature that we all try to bounce back, right? Given the choice, who would want to cry over laugh? Here, I'll warm you up --
Kendall: Yes, I'm cold.
Ryan: Just like I do with Spike and Emma.
Ryan: You know what? You should probably get out of those wet clothes, hmm?
[Rain and thunder]
Kendall: What are you thinking about?
Jesse: How's she doing?
Jesse: Hey, babe.
Angie: Oh, having a real tough time that this has happened to her. Understandable.
Jesse: Do you get the feeling that she might want to press charges?
Angie: I don't know. I mean, there's a lot of bitterness and anger there. Did you talk to Zach?
Angie: So what you were telling me last week -- you really think they were having an affair?
Jesse: Nah. Zach loves his wife. I just think this whole mess just spiraled out of control. You know what? Why don't you and I get out of here, go find a nice cozy place, have some dinner? Then we can go home and --
Angie: Let's --
Angie: Baby, we're going to have to take a rain check on that, ok? Reese, Reese, it's ok.
Reese: It hurts.
Angie: I know.
Reese: It hurts so much.
Angie: I know. I know, it's ok.
Tad: It's nice having her here, isn't it?
Jake: The girl's been through hell. David Hayward hell. And she's been through the Chandler house of horrors, and what do you know? She lived to tell the tale.
Tad: And you care about her, don't you?
Jake: Well, let's put it this way -- when she was available, and I was available to do something about it, I picked -- you know, I picked Taylor. Now, Taylor went off and hooked up with Brot, and this one gets herself pregnant. You know, when I hear it out loud, it actually -- my life sounds like one of those telenovelas.
Tad: How do you think it's going to end?
Jake: Well, let's hope it's not like one of those telenovelas, because they always end up in murder and madness.
Jake: Were you listening the whole time?
Amanda: Shoo, boys. Take your muy macho brother talk elsewhere. This pregnant girl wants some Zs. Shoo.
Tad: Ooh ooh ooh.
EMT #1: He threw up whatever was in there, and he's showing no ill effects now. He'll be ok. I'd keep an eye on him for tonight, and then give the pediatrician a call in the morning, just to update them.
J.R.: Thank you.
EMT #1: No worries.
EMT #2: That lady did the right thing calling us. If he hadn't got rid of the booze himself, we probably would've had to take him in and pump his stomach.
Adam: Whether Krystal planned on this or not, Hayward will seize on this like a meaty bone.
J.R.: Little Adam drank that scotch because he wanted to be like his daddy. This is all my fault.
[Door opens then closes]
David: I didn't expect to see you back here. When you left earlier, you sounded like --
Krystal: I came back... to tell you that you were right. About Little Adam, the Chandlers... all of it.
Ryan: You know...
Ryan: I have you to thank -- thank for what I had with Greenlee, because you kept -- I mean, you kept pushing us together, right? I mean, you kept pushing her towards me, me towards her. Why? Why was it so important to you that Greenlee and I get together?
Kendall: Well, the two of you were living this big old lie. I don't know, but that drove me absolutely crazy. And I guess I just -- I needed to see you...
Ryan: What? What were you going to say?
Kendall: I was going to say I needed to see you with someone that you really loved. So that -- I don't know -- so maybe you weren't available or something like that.
[Door opens and Zach enters]
