[Jake lowers the sheet covering David's body and examines his face]
J.R.: Hey. Are you ok?
Colby: Where did you go?
J.R.: The sitter called. A.J. had a nightmare.
Colby: Ugh. Thank God he wasn't here for the real thing.
J.R.: What exactly happened?
Colby: J.R., it was crazy. Caleb was making a speech and then David walked in -- well, he more like stumbled in, and then bam -- he collapsed right in front of us.
Jesse: Are you happy now?
Liza: Me? What did I do?
Jesse: You just couldn't let it go.
Jesse: You kept pushing. Liza, there's press all over the place.
Liza: Angie, I -- you really -- you can't see?
Jesse: Oh -- baby, I'm so sorry.
Tad: Nice work.
Jesse: She just kept pushing -- about you having motive to go after Hayward. I'm trying to help you, baby, and -- I'm sorry, I've just made things worse.
Greenlee: David's gone.
Kendall: Are you sure? This is David we're talking about.
Greenlee: I was right there when they rolled him away, Kendall. It was awful.
Ryan: I swear to God, I don't -- I don't -- I don't remember. I don't remember any of it.
Greenlee: Just tell me that you're ok. You have to be ok.
Ryan: I am so sorry. I'm -- I'm so sorry.
Amanda: [Gasps] Oh, my God.
Jake: I thought that -- I thought you were supposed to be with Trevor.
Amanda: Um, I gave him his kisses and then I asked the sitter to stay longer. I just needed to be with you.
Jake: This is tough for you.
Amanda: But I don't know why. It's David. David. I mean, he has caused so much pain, I just -- [Sighs] I never thought it would really be over.
Jake: Well, it is over. Come here. It's over. [Sighs]
Scott: Whoa, whoa, what are you doing?
Annie: Turning on the TV.
Scott: No, you're not. No, no, no. No way!
Annie: Ha ha! Oh, don't you want to know what's going on in the world?
Scott: No. My world is right here in Paradise, with my beautiful wife, Emma tucked in bed in the next room. Our world is perfect.
Scott: You feel that?
Annie: Of course, I do. This is everything I have ever wanted. I'm married to a wonderful man who loves me and loves my daughter.
Scott: I do, and I do.
Annie: When I think about that little girl sleeping in that room and what -- what I've put her through, I mean, given her reason to be ashamed of me, or if I've let her down, I --
Scott: That little girl in there, Annie, adores you. And you will never let her down again.
Annie: No, I won't.
[Scott and Annie kiss]
Annie: What -- what's the matter?
Emma: I saw something on TV. It scared me.
Annie: Oh. Ok, well, come on. Tell me about it.
J.R.: Look, you're going to be fine. Just tell the police what you saw. They're not going to give you any trouble.
Colby: Did you just hear that?
Asher: I still think it's a bad idea.
Colby: But we saw David and Ryan fighting, Asher.
Asher: No, we saw them arguing, Colby. No punches, no headlocks. For all we know, they ended up hugging it out or something.
Colby: No, no, that definitely did not happen.
Asher: I'm just saying -- [Sighs] We spill everything to the cops, we might just be making a big deal over nothing.
Angie: Stop beating yourself up. Look, it was -- it was bound to come out, eventually.
Jesse: Well, baby, you still had time to break the news on your own terms. Now I just blew it all to hell. I -- oh --
Angie: Jesse, listen, we will deal with it. But a man is dead, and right now, that is your top priority.
Jesse: You are my priority, always.
Tad: Any given moment, her condition could become permanent.
Tad: Do you have any idea how terrified she is right now?
Liza: Oh, it's horrible. I'm so sorry.
Tad: Yeah, well, you're not sorry enough. Because if you hadn't been pushing Jesse like that -- if you hadn't been pounding on him, he never would have said anything. Now, on top of everything else, she could lose her job.
Liza: It's horrible, again. I -- I'm just not seeing where this is my fault.
Tad: It's your fault, Liza, because you did what you always do, what you never stop doing. You push and you push, and you never let up.
Liza: Hmm. Well, excuse me for doing my job.
Tad: You're do -- doing your job? Are you kidding? Seriously? Angela Hubbard, a murderer? You think?
Liza: Ok, you know what? It is no secret that Angie and David had issues.
Tad: Oh, give me a break. It's no secret that David had issues with everybody in this entire town, and you know that. And all of a sudden, it doesn't seem to matter because of your new job. Congratulations. What the hell happened to you? What happened?
Tad: The woman I couldn't get enough of. The woman that used to make me laugh until I couldn't stop.
Liza: Wow. I guess life just stopped being so funny after a while.
Officer: I was patrolling the hotel, found a room banged up.
Natalia: Did you ask the front desk whose it is?
Officer: David Hayward's.
Greenlee: Sorry? For what?
Ryan: Well -- I mean, I -- whatever happened -- whatever went down, you got to know that I never meant to -- I --
Kendall: No -- listen to me, Ryan. There is no proof at all that you're responsible.
Greenlee: I am.
Greenlee: We fought. David was so angry, I never should have let him out of my sight.
Kendall: Greenlee, I think you need to sit down.
Greenlee: Why does everyone keep saying that to me?
Kendall: And you -- I mean, for all we know, you have a concussion. You need to take it easy.
Ryan: No, what I need to do is, I need to figure out what is going on here. What -- will you please just help me fill in the blanks, ok? I -- I -- I remember I went to Liza's office to try and get the evidence, the blackmail evidence that she had over you. And she walked in, and she caught me, and I tried to get her to turn on David. She wouldn't.
Kendall: And that's the last thing that you remember? Well, then what? Greenlee?
Greenlee: I called you at Liza's, and I told you to stop.
Ryan: Stop what?
Greenlee: Everything. I told you that I was going to stay with David. You don't remember that?
Ryan: I do remember that. I mean, it's hazy, but I do. But I knew you were lying. I mean, why would you stay with him?
Greenlee: He knew. He figured out that we were working together, and he threatened you. So I lied to get you to back off, but then you came and found me.
Ryan: And you -- but you wouldn't tell me the truth.
Kendall: Ok, that's when the two of you had it out.
Ryan: I mean, Greenlee, we -- we argued. I got pieces of that. Then what happened after that?
Kendall: You took off.
Greenlee: Answers. You said you were going to find answers. That's the last time anyone saw you before -- well, that doesn't mean that --
Ryan: Kendall --
Kendall: No, Ryan, it doesn't mean that you did it.
Ryan: But I was in David's room. I was in David's room. I was angry. I was sure he was about to turn over the evidence on Greenlee.
Kendall: Practically everyone at that party hated David.
Ryan: But not everybody in the party looks like this. Ok? So we can just sit around, and we can ignore the obvious, but that's not really going to get us anywhere, is it? I killed him.
Liza: How dare you make me feel like I'm --
Tad: What? Make you feel what? Heartless?
Liza: Wow. Tad, he was a human being. And believe it or not, he was my friend. And if it was your friend? Oh, forget about it. You'd pull out all the stops --
Tad: He wasn't my friend.
Liza: You wouldn't stop until there was justice.
Tad: David was David, ok? So what's your point?
Liza: Oh, because it's David, I'm supposed to just look the other way? That's not how it works, Tad. And you know that's not how I work.
J.R.: Well, that was intense.
Tad: Yeah, you think? There goes our new D.A.
J.R.: She is.
Tad: This turns into a murder investigation, she's the one that's going to prosecute.
J.R.: Well, that's a nice way to ease into things.
Tad: How's Marissa?
J.R.: I called her. She didn't answer. I don't think she wants to talk to me. You know, she's better off without him.
Tad: We all are.
Jesse: Oh, damn it.
Angie: What is it? What's going on?
Jesse: A reporter -- she keeps looking over here. Now she's making a phone call. What do you want to bet it's not about Hayward's murder? I'm getting you out of here.
Angie: No, Jesse --
Jesse: Tad? Thaddeus? Listen, do me a favor? Will you drive Angela home?
Angie: Look, I don't need to go home. I'm fine right here.
Jesse: Angela, I have made things hard enough for you tonight. Ok, please, just go -- go with Tad.
Tad: Ok, come on, honey. Your chariot awaits.
Jesse: Hey, who knows? By the time -- by the time I get back, your sight might be back, huh?
Jesse: Ok. Thanks, man.
Colby: I'm going to tell them what we saw. Keeping it quiet, it -- it doesn't feel right.
Asher: Yeah, yeah. Ok. You're right. [Sighs] I'll be right back. I'm going to go grab my jacket.
Natalia: I think we're looking at our crime scene. Seal it off.
Cliff: Dr. Martin.
Jake: Hey, Cliff. Honey, this is Cliff Brown. He's the medical examiner.
Amanda: You're here to do the autopsy.
Cliff: Is there anything I should know before I get started?
Jake: Well, David's wounds suggest he was in a violent altercation. It's probable, but not certain, that he died of a blunt force trauma to the head.
Cliff: I'd imagine this can't have you too upset. Everyone knew your history with Hayward.
Amanda: History or no history, no one deserves to die like that. No one.
Annie: Why were you watching the news in the first place, my sweetheart?
Emma: I didn't mean to.
Annie: Ok, so tell me. What is it that scared you?
Emma: Something happened at home.
Annie: The news was about Pine Valley?
Emma: There were sirens and flashing lights outside the club.
Scott: Well, sweetie, I'm sure whatever it is, it has nothing to do with anybody we know.
Emma: I want to talk to Daddy.
Newscaster: The body of David Hayward, the notorious former cardiac surgeon. Police aren't yet speculating on the cause of death. Witnesses have confirmed that Hayward appeared bruised and battered when he collapsed in the middle of a crowded party. We're still waiting for statements from Chief Jesse Hubbard and the county's new district attorney Liza Colby. David Hayward had a long history of making trouble in Pine Valley.
[Ryan turns off TV]
Greenlee: Where did they get that picture? David would hate that picture of himself.
Kendall: Liza as the new. D.A.? Is this good news or bad?
Ryan: A couple months ago, I would have said it's good news, but now, obviously, Liza's been in David's corner, keeping evidence, keeping his secrets, so we definitely can't count on Liza. Especially since I broke into her office --
Greenlee: Stop it.
Ryan: What's wrong?
Greenlee: You're acting like you're already a suspect. Who says Liza even has to go there?
Ryan: Greenlee, if I was fighting in David's room, somebody probably heard me or saw me or I left evidence there. And we can pretty much count on that evidence coming out, which -- which is why you guys -- you got to get out of here. Ok? You got to go.
Greenlee: What, and leave you to fend for yourself?
Ryan: The police will probably be here any minute, and if they see us together, they're going to think that we were all up to something together, ok? So, please, go.
Kendall: Ryan -- right. He's right. But what about you? We can't leave you here alone. I mean, for all you know, you have a concussion. You know what? Let's call Jake. I can call Jake.
Ryan: No, I am not calling Jake. I'm not bringing anybody else into this. This is -- I'll get my neurologist to come and check me out, ok?
Kendall: And tell them what?
Ryan: I will figure something out. Just, please, guys, you got to go, ok? Please. And, please, promise me -- promise me that you will take care of her.
Kendall: Of course.
Ryan: It's going to be ok. It's going to be ok. He can't hurt you anymore.
Kendall: Call if you need anything, ok?
Ryan: Ok, I will.
Greenlee: I'm scared I'm going to walk out this door and never see you.
Ryan: I'm going to see you real soon. I promise, ok?
Ryan: Whew. [Sighs]
Natalia: Well, hopefully, once we dust for prints, we'll know more. Dad?
Jesse: I'm sorry, baby, what did you say?
Natalia: How's Angie? No change with her eyesight?
Jesse: No. It's the longest one she's had so far.
Natalia: So is this it?
Jesse: We don't know.
Liza: Ahem. So is there anything to report? I just got off the phone with Mayor Blanco, and she wants to know if there's any news.
Jesse: I'll bet she does. You know what else I'll bet? She's missing David Hayward's huge contribution checks already. As you can see, a struggle took place between David Hayward and someone. Who that someone is, we are working on it.
Liza: Well, knowing David, he probably gave as much as he got, so did you check the hospital?
Jesse: You're telling me how to run my investigation now, Liza?
Natalia: Chief --
Liza: It's a suggestion.
Jesse: Just a suggestion? Ok, you've been doing this, what? Two minutes as D.A.? I've been -- you know what? You shouldn't even be here!
Liza: What are you going to do? You going to have me forcibly removed?
Jesse: Don't push it. You want to push it?
Angie: Thanks for the escort.
Tad: Yeah, well, don't throw me out just yet. I'm not going anywhere.
Angie: I have memorized every inch of this place. Trust me, I'll be fine.
Tad: Yeah, well, I won't be, if your big, bad husband finds out that I left you here alone.
Angie: That big, bad husband happens to be your best friend.
Tad: That's all the more reason for me to stick around. Angela -- you know Jesse didn't mean to, right?
Angie: I know, I know.
Tad: I mean, if Liza hadn't been up in his grill like that, nothing ever would have happened.
Angie: [Sighs] Tad, you know what? It might be just as well. I mean, the doctor said if an episode lasts more than 24 hours --
Tad: Hey, come on. It's not 24 hours yet.
Ryan: Hey. Ems, how's -- how's the honeymoon?
Emma: I saw sirens on the news. Are you ok?
Ryan: Yeah, I'm fine. I'm fine. And, actually, hearing your voice, I -- couldn't be any better.
Greenlee: I don't want to be here.
Kendall: I wish I was staying someplace else, but you can't be alone tonight.
Bianca: I am so sorry.
Bianca: Are you ok? Do they know what happened?
Kendall: Um, not that we know of.
Bianca: Well, I know it's hard, but why don't you try to relax? I'll make us some tea.
Kendall: You mind if I say good night to the boys?
Greenlee: Go ahead.
Kendall: Greenlee -- everything's going to be ok. I promise.
David: Happy Valentine's Day.
Minister's voice: By the power vested in me, I now pronounce you husband and wife.
David: If you give yourself to me, I want all of you. Your heart, your soul, your mind, your body. And I will give you all of myself in return. I didn't want this to be about threats. I'm in love with you, till the day I die.
Kendall: Greenlee, it's ok. You're ok.
Greenlee: I am not. This is not ok.
Bianca: Why don't you try and get some rest?
Greenlee: I just -- I -- I can't. I ju -- I -- I can't.
Kendall: Greenlee, I'm -- I'm sorry. I'm sorry. This was a dumb idea. I should have known better.
Greenlee: No, I'm sorry. I know you were trying to help.
Kendall: Well, let me pack a bag. I'll go with you.
Greenlee: No. You two need to stay with the boys. Please, it's ok. I'll be fine.
Kendall: Where are you going to go?
Greenlee: Anywhere. As long as I'm not here.
Jake: You feel sorry for him.
Amanda: Don't you?
Jake: I don't know. Maybe deep inside, there's something. I don't really know.
Amanda: Jake, he's dead. He is gone forever. I mean, that has to affect you on some level.
Jake: It affects me. It -- it worries me. But I'm not worried about the guy that's in there on the slab. I'm worried about whoever did this to the guy who's on the slab.
Jesse: Angela's at home, stressing about whether or not she's going to be able to see our faces again, and I am stuck here investigating the murder of a -- a man I didn't even like. I couldn't stand this man. What a waste of time.
Natalia: You're not stuck anywhere, Dad.
Natalia: Go. Be with Angie.
Jesse: I can't do that. I'm the chief of police, baby.
Natalia: Well, I'm detective. That's what we're here for, right? Come on. Let me help you out. For tonight. Just tonight. You've already done the bulk of the interviews. The crime scene's already blocked off. You know I can handle the on-site from here. Tomorrow morning, you're back ordering us all around and telling us what to do.
Jesse: All right. One night. Thanks, kid -- detective.
Natalia: What are you waiting for? Get out of here?
Jesse: I'm going. All right.
Natalia: All right.
Damon: Look, unless you want to know what kind of food we were serving, I'm not going to be much help.
J.R.: Whoa. Going somewhere?
Asher: Trying to, yeah.
J.R.: I thought you and Colby still had to give your statements to the police.
Asher: I actually already talked to a cop.
J.R.: You did?
Asher: Yeah, over there.
J.R.: You got a problem with cops, Asher? It seems like you're trying to avoid them.
Asher: When I was little, my dad died. A car wreck.
J.R.: Hmm. Sorry to hear that.
Asher: The police came to the house to break the news, but I was the only one home. Just me, a babysitter, and a bunch of uniforms.
J.R.: Must have been pretty traumatic.
Asher: Yeah. I've got nothing to say, you know? I just -- [Whispering] I want to get the hell out of here.
J.R.: I never saw you.
Natalia: Don't worry. This'll only take a second, all right? You set?
Natalia: All right. Were you here when David Hayward came in and collapsed?
Natalia: And prior to that, did you see anything unusual? Anything at all?
Colby: No. Nothing.
Ryan: Ems, you have no idea how badly I'd love to see your little face right now. I miss you so much. Hey, but you have a good time, ok? And get some sleep.
Emma: Bye, Daddy.
Annie: Ok. Wait, let me talk to Daddy, ok?
Annie: Hey. I'm sorry if we interrupted anything. Emma insisted on calling. She said she saw something on the news. Do you know what she's talking about?
Ryan: Nothing that you guys have to worry about. You just have a good time over there, ok? And -- if you decide to stay a little bit longer and keep Emma there a little bit longer, that's ok with me, all right? You got my ok. Oh, that's my other line. I got to go. Ok. Bye.
[Ryan sighs when he finds Greenlee at his door]
Annie: J.R., it's Annie.
J.R.: I thought you were on your honeymoon.
Annie: I am.
J.R.: Bored already, huh?
Annie: Did something happen back at home? I can't seem to get any details.
J.R.: Turn the news on.
Annie: Well, I don't want to risk it. Emma saw some coverage on the news, and it really upset her.
J.R.: Yeah, well, somebody being murdered will do that to you.
Annie: What? Who was murdered?
J.R.: David Hayward.
Annie: David Hayward is dead?
Scott: What? When?
J.R.: Who is that? Is that Scott? How's the honeymoon?
Annie: Um, thank you so much for calling. We really appreciate it.
Scott: What happened?
Annie: Apparently, he was murdered.
Scott: Do they know who did it?
Annie: This is so bizarre. Ryan downplayed the whole thing. Why wouldn't he have told me?
Scott: I don't know -- maybe he didn't want to worry you.
Annie: Something's going on. Maybe we should go home.
Scott: We're in the middle of our honeymoon.
Annie: What if -- what if Ryan's, like, involved in this or something? And what about Marissa? Oh, my God. Her father is dead. I mean, I know things haven't been great between us, but she's still family. I mean, she's going to want to see you.
Annie: [Sighs] I can -- I can change our flight reservation. I mean, we'll have the rest of our lives to do this.
Scott: [Sighs] Who called?
Scott: On the phone just now, who was it?
Annie: Just somebody from the office.
Angie: What are you doing home?
Jesse: Baby, I should have never left you in the first place.
Angie: Sweetheart, the investigation --
Jesse: The investigation is in good hands. All right? Tad, I appreciate it so much. Thank you. I got it from here.
Tad: No doubt in my mind. I love you, baby.
Angie: I love you, too, sweetheart. Thank you. Baby, you didn't need to come --
Jesse: Yeah, I wanted to be here when your sight came back.
Angie: If it does.
Jesse: No, don't think like that.
Angie: No, I have to. I could very well wake up tomorrow morning, open my eyes, and nothing. Blind.
Jesse: Beautiful --
Jesse: And pregnant.
Angie: Blind, Jesse.
Jesse: All right. If blind it is, we deal with it, as a family. And we grow as a family with this baby, ok?
Jesse: Wouldn't it be something if this baby became a doctor, too?
Angie: Yeah. Yeah, it certainly would.
Colby: So much for being a fun night.
Damon: Oh, what do you mean? That wasn't a kick-ass time?
Colby: Oh, yeah, totally. I just love lying to police officers.
Damon: Well, you did it to help Ryan out.
Colby: I know. But what if it comes back to bite me? Oh, I can't believe Asher took off like that. I don't care that he saved my life. That was lame.
Damon: What's his deal, anyway? All the time we spent with that guy, we don't really know anything about him.
Tad: You missed one hell of a show. That's all I can say. Liza started jumping all over Jesse in front of everybody. Started screaming about Angie.
Jake: For what?
Liza: The catering -- what the hell do you think? For David's murder.
Jake: About Angie? What, is she -- that's ridiculous. She can't even see.
Tad: That's what -- that's exactly what Jesse said.
Jake: He said that?
Jake: In front of everybody?
Amanda: Oh, no.
Tad: In front of everybody.
Jake: You see? That's what I'm talking about. He's still hurting people, and he's dead. He's still hurting people.
Tad: Who do you think did it?
Jake: Oh, I have no idea, but there'll be no shortage of suspects, I'll tell you that much.
Tad: Yeah, that's exactly what I'm afraid of.
Liza: [In her office, she looks through David's papers] Oh, my God.
Greenlee: I could see him. I could hear him. Everywhere. It's like I couldn't get away.
Ryan: I'm so sorry. I'm sorry.
Greenlee: I should go to the police.
Ryan: And -- and say what?
Greenlee: I don't know. That he was blackmailing me. That he saved my life, that he -- almost ruined my life.
Ryan: You can't go to the police and tell them about the blackmail. That'll only make everything worse -- for everyone.
Greenlee: I don't know what else to do. This is driving me crazy. My husband is dead, and you got in a fight with him because of me.
Ryan: Look, I know this is hard. I can't -- and I know it hurts, and I know it's confusing, but just know, above everything else, that -- that you are not responsible for this. This is not your fault.
Greenlee: That's all I feel right now. I mean, I don't know what else I'm feeling right now except for that.
Ryan: Hey, well, I'm about to get my doctor over here to take a look at me. Maybe you should just stick around so he can check you out.
Greenlee: No, I'm not -- I'm not hurt. I'm -- I don't know what I am. I just need some air.
Ryan: Are you sure?
Greenlee: Yeah. I just -- I have to get out of here.
Ryan: Be careful, ok, please?
Jesse: Think we should go to bed?
Angie: No, I'm not tired.
Angie: I want to stay right here, because whatever happens, I want to be right here in your arms when I know.
Liza: Hi. I'm District Attorney Liza Colby. I -- may I have a moment with him, please?
Liza: Thank you. Thanks a lot. For pulling strings and getting me this job. You think people hated me before? And -- once I find out who did this, now it's my responsibility for putting them away. And if it's who I think it is -- oh, man, this is going to get so ugly. But I'm going to do it. And I'm not going to do it to spite him. I'm going to do this for you. And for me. Rest in peace, David. If you can.
Kendall: I still can't get over it. No more David.
Bianca: He's done some horrible things. I mean, really, really horrible.
Kendall: He wasn't all bad.
Bianca: Think they'll find out who did it?
Kendall: I hope not. I just don't want to see anyone else getting hurt.
Ryan: Hey, Madison, it's me. I'm -- I'm sorry that I bailed on you tonight. I -- I'm going to try again tomorrow. I got to talk to you, ok? I got to explain something to you. It's -- it's really important.
Natalia: Look, we need to step it up. Somebody in this town knows what happened to David Hayward.
Ryan: I think I'm the guy you're looking for.
[Elevator door closes]
Greenlee's voice: It won't look that way if they link us to the crash.
David's voice: All right, would you stop worrying and concentrate on your victory speech? This is your moment. And no one is going to take that away from you.
[Greenlee wraps herself up in a blanket and sobs]
