Ryan: What are you doing here? I mean, is this your new job, standing guard for Annie?
Scott: How's Emma?
Ryan: I'm just a little confused, that's all. Last week you told me that Annie's trial was starting. You told me that she escaped from the casino. You were afraid that she was going on the run again.
Scott: I can't do this right now.
Ryan: Whoa, hold on. I'm just trying to figure this out. I thought you finally woke up, and I thought -- I thought you finally saw who Annie really is. And now, you're back to defending her. So -- so what's going on? I mean, you were convinced that she killed your father, and now this. So tell me, how has Annie changed your mind?
Scott: It wasn't Annie. It's never been Annie.
Annie: You can't tell anyone what you know. Please, Adam.
Adam: Oh, no, I'd never say a word. Just knowing this explains so much.
Annie: Yeah. At first, Emma -- she didn't remember. But then when she started to, I made her promise to keep it a secret. You do know that it was an accident, right?
Adam: Oh, yes. She's just a little girl.
Annie: There's something else you need to know. I -- I saw it happen. That's what Emma and I were whispering about in the attic that night. But I couldn't let her think that she had -- so -- so I convinced her it was just a dream. She was so confused. But I -- I think in the end, that's what saved her.
Adam: Yes. You had to protect her.
Annie: Yeah. And you do understand that it's -- it's not that I didn't want justice for Stuart.
Adam: No, no. Your child was under attack -- from Kendall's guards, and the lawyers -- all of them trying to talk Emma into accusing you.
Annie: So, now you know everything.
Adam: Oh, well, almost. I'm your fiancÚ. Your staunchest ally. Why did you confide in Scott?
Angie: David, it was nothing. A superficial stab wound. I mean, I could have had an intern stitch her up in ten minutes. Kendall certainly didn't require renowned cardiologist David Hayward.
David: World-renowned, thank you. But more important, I guess you just don't want someone like me interfering in your prison break.
Angie: You know what? I don't get you. You have everything you want. You have custody of your son, Amanda in your house, and yet, you're still sniffing around for conspiracies.
David: Given your track record, Doctor, please.
Angie: You know what? Kendall Slater's life is none of your business. Now, I'm taking care of her. Everything is under control. Back off!
David: So I guess what you're saying is, you really are up to something.
Liza: What you're doing -- impersonating a prisoner -- it's a crime. So you back out now, you're going to be spending a lot more time behind bars than if you see this thing through. Zach is going to increase your payments substantially.
Kendall's Double: What good is money if I'm dead? They'll kill me if I show up there again.
Liza: Ok, listen, this whole thing is going to be over soon. As soon as Kendall is in the clear, we --
Kendall's Double: I don't give a damn about Kendall. Or the cash or any of it. I just want out!
Erica: Jesse, my daughter has been in prison for months now, isolated from her family. Now she has a chance to be with her baby, and she barely acknowledges him?
Jesse: Well, Kendall knows that this is just a temporary escape. Then it's straight back to her cell.
Erica: Well, that's all the more reason for her to hold her little boy.
Jesse: Well, this is a way to protect herself, I suppose. I mean, I did the same thing when I first came back to Angela. I knew it could all be taken away at the drop of a hat, so I put up a wall until I was absolutely sure it was safe to get close again.
Erica: Well, I'm sure that Kendall's heart is breaking having to hold back like this.
Jesse: Yeah, well, she will have a chance to let it all out when she's free, I'm sure. And not just free for a couple of hours, free and clear for good.
Kendall: I feel so awful dragging everyone else into this. There's Jesse, and then Aidan, Liza. Now Angie's roped in?
Zach: We're all working together to punish the right person. And when Emma wakes up, she'll tell Ryan everything and it's over.
Kendall: You make it sound so easy.
Zach: It's not easy, but we'll get it done. The first thing, we got to get you out of here, and your double back into her cell.
Liza: Bad news. Kendall's look-alike wants out.
Zach: Too bad. She's got work to do.
Liza: Look, I have tried to reason with her. I have promised her more money, but she -- she's refusing to go back to prison.
Zach: Lock her in. I'm on my way.
Angie: All right, look. It's a top-secret plan. And we're all in on it. I mean, it's Jesse, it's Liza, it's Zach. Even Ryan. Now, we're risking everything so that we can try and break Kendall out of prison. Why? Just to mess with you.
David: Hmm. Well, you should all know by now that that is an exercise in futility.
Angie: Well, you know, I don't know many people who would pass up a chance to pull one over on you, even if it meant putting their future on the line.
David: I am so flattered.
Angie: This will shock you. The world simply doesn't revolve around you. There are the rest of us that have careers, families, patients to tend to without your interference. So why don't you just take your paranoia somewhere else and let me do my job? You know what? Don't answer that. Just stay the hell out of our lives.
Erica: I suppose you're right. If Kendall were to spend any time with Ian right now, that would be a terrible tease. Jesse, I don't want Kendall to go back to jail.
Jesse: Why don't --
Erica: Hi. So, how is Kendall?
Zach: She's much better. I'm going to take this little guy home. It's -- it's confusing. And, you know, his mom's here and then she's gone. It's just -- it's -- it's hard for both of them.
Jesse: Hey, you need a hand with anything back at the house?
Zach: I'll let you know if I do. Come on, big guy.
Erica: Ok, you know what, Jesse? I'm going to go in and see Kendall now.
Jesse: Go ahead.
Angie: I just got accosted by David Hayward.
Jesse: Did he suspect anything?
Angie: No, I talked him down. Told him he was paranoid -- about what, I still don't fully understand. No more lying, Jesse. No more covering your tracks until you tell me exactly what is going on.
Erica: Zach tells me you're feeling much better.
Kendall: I am.
Erica: This is me you're talking to, Kendall. Why did you send your husband home with your son?
Kendall: Angie said that I need to rest.
Erica: This is a precious opportunity for you to spend time with your family. You've barely had any contact for months.
Kendall: Mom, Zach and I talk as often as we can.
Erica: Until recently, I was under the impression that you wouldn't want to speak to anyone. So you're telling me that just a few conversations on the phone with Zach and everything's fine?
Kendall: We've made progress. How we did it is private. And honestly, I don't -- I don't understand why -- you say you didn't even want any part in my personal life, so why are you grilling me? I mean, what exactly are you accusing me of?
Erica: I'm not really sure. But I know you, and I know that something is off.
Kendall: Well, you're -- you're just not used to me feeling confident in my relationship with Zach, that's all. I've been so jealous of Liza, and -- and so paranoid from being alone. But I'm not anymore. I know Zach loves me. I'm secure in that now.
Erica: What do you know about Liza?
Kendall: Well, not much. I -- I know I watched her at the dance marathon from prison, and that wasn't very fun. Watching them slobber all over each other. But I knew it was all part of the plan to -- to bust Annie. Liza's on my side. And Zach and I are good. No, actually, Zach and I are great.
Erica: All right. That's all that matters then. Ok. Then I'll let you rest.
Kendall: Hey, Mom, wait. You -- you've been asking so much about me, but we -- we haven't talked about you -- your personal life. So what's going on between you and Ryan?
Annie: I knew Scott would keep the secret.
Adam: But he's Stuart's son.
Annie: Yes. Ironically, that made me feel that I could trust him even more. Scott is a good man. He would never make a child pay for an innocent mistake. But then everyone in this town started spreading their lies, and he -- he turned on me. It got to the point, Adam, where I couldn't defend myself anymore.
Adam: Yeah. Yeah, he was afraid you'd run away.
Annie: I couldn't take all the doubt, all the suspicion, so I decided to come clean. And I told Ryan all of this at the dance marathon. Of course, he jumped on me, and called me a monster of a mother.
Adam: Ah, yes.
Annie: I only told him so that he would protect Emma. Of course, he doesn't believe a word I say anymore. Not -- not that I can blame him after all the lies I've told.
Adam: Eh -- you had to -- had to protect your daughter. Annie, is this -- is this what our relationship is really about? Protecting Emma? Getting her back?
Annie: At first, yes.
Annie: But then we -- we started spending time together, and I realized what an incredible man you are. And so much more than wealth and power. You're so generous and so loving in a way I've never known before. And I fell in love with you. Please say that you believe that.
Adam: I have no choice. Because I love you. I wish I had a little more control over what happens next.
Annie: Well, it's in God's hands now. He may have washed his hands of me, but not Emma. He's watching over her. And she'll wake up.
Annie: And we'll get married, and -- and the three of us will be a family. That's all I want. I just -- I want to put all of this behind us and just be happy.
Adam: And that's what you shall have.
Ryan: Annie has sucked you in again, hasn't she? Tell me something, Scott, who is she pointing the finger at now? Who is it? Tell me. Is it Emma? Answer me, Scott. It's Emma. It's my 7-year-old little girl. She told you that Emma is a killer and you believe her. And you think you're actually protecting Emma by keeping this a secret? You think you're being a big hero here? Or Annie's big man? Well, that's not the case. You're being a fool. You're being an idiot, for not seeing the truth that's right in front of you, man.
Scott: I do see it.
Ryan: No, you don't. You see -- you see a performance. You see -- an act. She would destroy anybody -- anybody to save herself. She would destroy her own daughter for herself. Let me tell you something. Emma is innocent. If I hear you say otherwise -- to anybody else --
Scott: I won't. I can't, and -- and you're right. I don't understand any of this, but neither do you.
Ryan: And what is that supposed to mean?
Scott: I never said Emma did it. You did.
Jesse: Ok, talk to me.
Angie: I was going to say that I don't know you anymore. That's not true. The secrets, the cover-ups -- this is what you have been doing since you came back to me.
Angie: I don't know why I expected any different.
Jesse: This is different. It's not about me or us. This is about Annie Lavery about to get away with murder. And I have an obligation to stop her, whatever it takes.
Angie: That last part -- that's the part that scares me.
Jesse: Kendall did not kill Stuart. And if I could prove that going by the book, I would.
Angie: You could end up in prison.
Jesse: Baby, listen. In Madison's situation -- look at that. She's out of our lives. She's in New York somewhere in a hospital. We need to get rid of Annie, too. She got to go. I have to help these other families.
Angie: Hmm. No matter what it costs your own?
Jesse: We can handle this. Baby, I can't just walk away. I was away from you and Frankie for 20 years. I can't let that happen to Kendall and her boys. Ryan and Emma -- hate me or help me. It's up to you.
Erica: Well, you saw Ryan and me on TV at the dance marathon from prison. Isn't that what you said? So you know, he was my dance partner. Encouragement, confidence -- that's what Ryan gives me. It wasn't easy for me to leave "New Beginnings," believe me. But Ryan assured me that my instincts were right, that I did have more important work to do. And when I came back from Africa, he said he noticed a change in me for the better. And he encouraged me to go for it, and to follow my passion. I'm sure this doesn't make any sense to you.
Kendall: No, actually, it makes perfect sense. But if you would care to elaborate --
Erica: No, I don't. Nothing more to say.
Kendall: Ok. Well, you -- you needed someone to lean on. I remember how hard it was for me when you were in prison.
Erica: Kendall, when are they taking you back?
Kendall's Double: This was a warning. Next time, I won't walk away. So I'm done.
Zach: I don't want you to make a decision now. You just think about it, all right? And just know that whatever I was paying you a week, I will pay you every day.
Kendall's Double: That's big money. But if I go back, I won't last more than a couple hours.
Zach: Just rest. Sit down. Take it easy. These are the pills they gave me for Kendall. Take some. Relax, all right? We'll talk later.
Liza: So it's pretty bad, huh?
Zach: It's as bad as it gets.
Liza: A week? Zach, we don't have that kind of time. If we don't get her back to the prison soon, then your wife is going to be there instead. And then this whole thing is through. We have got to get Kendall out of that hospital soon before somebody looks under that bandage who is not Angie.
Zach: I know. Hayward's already asking questions.
Liza: Ok. All right, so, what exactly are we going to be doing now?
Zach: I'm not sure. She's not going for the big money.
Liza: I say we push her a little harder. Come on. She -- she'll give in.
Zach: Yeah, she will, then she'll stay for a while, and then she's going to run. You know why? Because she's scared. And I can't have that.
Liza: Ok, wait. What are you doing?
Zach: Lock her in that room. Don't let her out.
Liza: Zach -- Zach!
Ryan: There's no change.
Adam: Annie needs to be with her daughter.
Annie: Do not try and stop me, Ryan. You cannot keep me from my daughter.
Ryan: Let me ask you something. What happened to you, to the great Adam Chandler, being wrapped around the finger of a crazy woman?
Adam: You're jealous.
Ryan: You lost your brother, and I know what that's like. And it takes a while to get your head screwed on straight again. But honestly, I thought you were coming around, Adam. I thought you could see what was really going on here, what Annie is doing to you, and now Scott.
Ryan: Well -- you think it, too. You do, don't you? You think that Emma is the real killer, don't you?
Adam: Oh --
Ryan: What did Annie say to you? Tell me what she said.
Adam: She didn't have to say anything. I could tell it in her eyes. Um -- Annie doesn't want this secret to come out, no.
Ryan: You've been conned by a murderer, which makes you a fool, just like your nephew.
Adam: No. You're the fool, Ryan.
Erica: Oh, honey, I have to take this, ok? I'll be right back.
David: Hi. I'm Dr. David Hayward. I'm chief of staff here at the hospital. I'm going to check on my patient, and I do not want to be disturbed.
Kendall: Mom -- Angie already -- Angie already checked me.
David: Well, there's nothing wrong with checking again.
Kendall: Is that really necessary?
David: Are you trying to get rid of me, Kendall?
Kendall: No, no, it's just that Angie is my doctor.
David: Oh. How soon they forget. I gave you your new heart, remember? Hmm. And what a strong heart it is. Given the trauma you've been through, these numbers just don't seem to add up.
Kendall: Well, I guess the stab wound wasn't as bad as they first thought.
David: Hmm. Still, with a transplant patient, you would expect to see some infections, jaundice. Why don't I take a closer look? Wouldn't want to miss anything.
David: Hmm. Clear as a bell. Remarkable. Well rested. Rosy complexion. No signs of malnutrition whatsoever. You know, I didn't realize that the state pen was a country club prison. So what happened? Who stabbed you? Some celebrity gone wild?
Kendall: I've always been a fast healer.
David: As you know, they tried to lock me up for Stuart's murder. I'd be lying if I told you that I wasn't glad they locked you up, instead. But, you know, given the fact that I'm looking at you right now, you don't seem like you're suffering very much. Oh, I don't know if you've heard, but things have gone pretty well for me lately. I have a new baby. Amanda's moved into the house with us. You know, it's really wonderful to have a family surrounding you. Oh, I'm sure you really miss that, right? And I would bet that you would give up pretty much anything to get back home.
Kendall: Well, I am so glad you're happy. I really am. I can only imagine what you did to get there.
Jesse: You shouldn't be in here. She is a prisoner in care of the state.
David: Oh, I'm sorry. My bad. Excuse me. I was under the impression she was a patient in my hospital.
[David sighs as he and Jesse exit Kendall's room]
David: Well, then you leave me no choice but to have Kendall released immediately.
Jesse: Under whose authority?
David: Well, as you said, she's a prisoner in care of the state. This is my hospital. And I don't need a prisoner taking up my beds. So I want her back in the prison immediately. The infirmary can take it from there.
Jesse: Kendall's double ready to go?
Zach: There's been a change of plans.
[Zach walks into Kendall's room]
Kendall: What's wrong?
Zach: Um -- well, a slight change of plans. There's not going to be any switch for -- it's over. The plan is not working.
Kendall: What? No. It's -- no, Zach. We -- we had a deal with this woman.
Zach: She's not going into prison again. And you can't go because if a doctor examines you in there, they're going to see that there's no stab wound and then they'll figure it out. So I'm going to have to step forward and tell --
Kendall: No --
Zach: The authorities that I --
Kendall: No, no!
Zach: Kidnapped you and I brought you --
Kendall: No. No, Zach, no. There is no way in hell I'm letting you do that. No, I'm not going to let you go to prison.
Zach: Hey -- soon, someone's going to figure all this out. And then Angie, Jesse, Liza -- they're all going to go down for this, and I'm not going to let that happen. And the bad part is, you're going to have to go to prison, for a little while, until Ryan figures out how to get to Annie.
Kendall: Who's going to take care of the boys if we're both gone?
Zach: Erica and Ryan. I got to turn this over to them now.
Kendall: You would really do this? Well, of course, you would. You confessed to killing Stuart to protect me. And now, you're protecting all of us. Zach, we can run. We could take the boys and disappear.
Kendall: Why not? Why? Ryan can work on this and take care of things while we're hiding.
Zach: I've thought about this a thousand times. It's the only way.
Kendall: I just want this over. I want this whole, awful, horrible nightmare to end.
Zach: No, it's not awful, it's -- we're back, you and me. Team Slater back on the canvas. We got to fight -- for our freedom, our family, our lives. And we'll do it. You with me?
Kendall: I don't know what I can do.
Zach: Well, you can talk to your mother.
Kendall: Oh -- my mom -- she has no clue about any of this.
Zach: She's a smart woman. She'll understand. And she'll be there for the boys.
Kendall: What about Ryan?
Zach: I'll deal with Ryan.
Ryan: You're out of your mind, Adam.
Adam: The answer to this puzzle is right here in this hospital -- Kendall. She's confessed. And she's on her way back to prison.
Ryan: Kendall didn't kill Stuart.
Adam: Are you sure about that? She certainly thinks she did. So leave it alone. For God's sakes, protect your child. If -- if Kendall were back here now -- if she knew what was going on, that's what she'd want.
Ryan: I'm going to prove that Annie pulled the trigger that night. Then Annie is going to go to prison, and my daughter will be safe, and you will be alone to spend the rest of your life wondering how you could possibly have been so incredibly stupid.
Adam: Annie and I are going to spend the rest of our lives together in one long, happy marriage -- something you'd -- well, you never got the hang of.
Ryan: I will protect my daughter, make no mistake about that.
Adam: Then accept what she's done. Get her the help she needs before it's too late.
Annie: Stop this. What if Emma can hear you?
Ryan: You know what? I'm getting a restraining order to keep you out of this hospital.
Annie: You can't do that.
Ryan: It scares you, doesn't it, Annie, huh? Not being here when Emma wakes up, so you can't put a hand over her mouth to prevent her from saying the truth? That would be the last thing that you'd want.
Annie: You're right. I don't want that. I never have.
Ryan: To save yourself.
Annie: Never myself.
Erica: Ok. I'm going to cut to the chase, Kendall. I don't want you to go back to prison.
Kendall: Ok. Mom, I need you to do something for me. It's very important.
Erica: Of course, honey, anything.
Kendall: It's -- it's Aidan. I need you to go to the police station and post his bail. Now, he's going to try to fight you on this, but you're going to have to convince him to come here and see me. He can't go anywhere else. He can't talk to anyone. He just -- you have to make him come here.
Erica: Why? What -- what is this all about?
Kendall: Just trust that I have a good reason, Mom. Please.
Erica: Honey, you know that I would do anything for you, anything. But for me to just blindly go and post bail for Aidan --
Kendall: It's to keep Zach from losing his children.
Erica: Ok, Kendall. What is really going on?
Kendall: Mom, please? Please?
Erica: Ok. Ok. Aidan will be here within the hour.
Aidan: This must be some kind of mistake. I don't need anyone to bail me out.
Officer: All right, turn around.
Aidan: Is Chief Hubbard around?
Officer: No, he isn't.
Aidan: I was fine where I was.
Man: Apparently not. You're wanted at Pine Valley Hospital.
Aidan: By whom?
Man: Erica Kane.
Kendall's Double: Help! Please help me.
Liza: What's the problem?
Kendall's Double: My stitches -- I'm bleeding.
Liza: You'll live.
Kendall's Double: There's so much blood. I'm scared.
Liza: Look, get a towel. Hey, did you hear me? Hello? Say something. All right, come on, this isn't funny. All right, fine, I'm leaving. Damn it.
Zach: The switch is off.
Jesse: There's no chance she'll come around?
Zach: No, she's not going back to -- to prison. She thinks she's going to get killed, and she's probably right.
Jesse: So, what? Plan B?
Zach: Plan B? Um -- I confess -- tell the police everything.
Jesse: Ok -- are you kidding me? They'll take you away from your family for good. No, come on, we can figure something else.
Zach: We figured something out. This is it. I'm not going to disrupt your family anymore.
Jesse: Disrupt, he says. There's an understatement. How about erupt? Angela went off on me, like --
Zach: Ok. Hey -- thanks for everything. I'll never forget it. But it ends here.
Jesse: No, I can't just quit this now. I can't give up on this.
Zach: Good, good. Because I need you and Ryan to stay on Annie.
Jesse: Are you sure about this?
Zach: The fastest way to justice. I'll talk to Willis, tell him it was all my idea. How I blackmailed you, threatened your family.
Zach: It's on me now.
Liza: I don't see any blood.
Kendall's Double: I can move my hand, but then I'd ruin your fancy shoes!
Liza: All right, look, do you want me to get you another bandage? I'm sure there's something in the medicine cabinet.
Kendall's Double: No. Just -- I need water.
Kendall's Double: Could you give me a hand?
Liza: Oh! No! Oh!
Liza: Get off of me!
Liza: Stay there!
Kendall's Double: Ugh!
Zach: How is she?
Ryan: She's still unconscious. It's the waiting that --
Zach: I know. It was the same with Kendall, but it -- you know, it worked out in the end.
Ryan: Somehow, I don't think you stopped me to talk about Kendall.
Zach: That's exactly why I stopped you. This is --
Zach: I need to ask a favor -- for Kendall, and for my son, and for me.
[Kendall's double screams as she and Liza wrestle with each other]
Liza: Don't you go! Oh!
Kendall's Double: Oh!
Liza: Get off of me, bitch!
[Woman continues screaming]
[Liza pants as she tries to call for help, but her cell phone falls to floor when Kendall's double smashes a bottle over her head]
Liza: Ow --
Zach: I need you to take care of my son.
Ryan: Ian? Why? What happened?
Zach: You'll find out soon enough.
Aidan: Erica -- I still don't know why you bailed me out.
Erica: I don't know, either.
Aidan: Well, has it got something to do with Annie? She pulled something new, has she?
Erica: I really don't know. Look, all I can tell you is that Kendall wanted you to come here. She wanted me to bring you here. She needs to see you right away, so follow my lead. Officer, ah, this is Mrs. Slater's attorney. He has permission to see his client.
Officer: Go ahead.
Erica: Thank you.
Kendall: I am so glad you're here.
Aidan: Kendall, what's going on? I'm supposed to be sitting in jail, making sure that Zach's plan doesn't fall apart.
Kendall: This has nothing to do with Zach.
Aidan: Then why am I here?
Kendall: To help me. You're the only one who can.
