karen: I know it sounds so bizarre. But last night lancelot carried me away, and i wasn't even in any danger. He took me to the place where he lives, and it was so exhilarating. I can't even explain it. You know, I really think i'm the only woman he's let in this much. He told me i'm beautiful, and when he touched me it was electric. I don't know what it is, but there's something about him i can't let go, and the funny thing is, I think he feels the same way about me.

Ian: Karen.

Karen: Hey.

Ian: I'm sorry. I didn't mean to startle you.

Karen: No, it's ok. I was just talking to my best friend.

Ian: Well, you know, I understand. I do -- I do the same thing. I talk to her all the time.

Karen: I could always talk to her about a lot of things.

Ian: Yeah. I think she'd probably like knowing that we talk to each other, you know.

Karen: We talk.

Ian: Yeah, I know we talk, but, i mean, talk about the important things. Are you ok? Are you fine?

Karen: Yeah, everything's fine. Why?

Ian: You seem a little jumpy, that's all.

Karen: Oh, well, you just startled me, you know, and we are in a cemetery and it's getting a little dark.

Ian: Yeah, I know all that. It's just I thought maybe it was something else. I heard that you had some interaction with this lancelot thing.

Karen: It was nothing significant. You know, I really should head back to the hospital, and you probably want some time alone with eve. I'll see you later.

Ian: Yeah.

Rafe: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. What's going on here?

Livvie: Um -- I just -- I felt a little dizzy, so frank grabbed my arm to steady me.

Rafe: Are you ok?

Livvie: Yeah, yeah, I'm fine. I'm fine.

Rafe: Were you just yelling at her? Because I thought that's what i heard.

Livvie: No, no, honey. Sweetie, he was just warning me to be safe.

Avatar: Your wife shouldn't be wandering around the park at night.

Rafe: Yeah, why are you here? I thought you were home resting.

Livvie: Because I wanted to see you.

Rafe: Ok, then call me, ok? You have to be careful.

Avatar: You should listen to your husband, livvie. I would hate to see anything happen to you or your baby.

Rafe: Yeah, thanks for watching after her, frank.

Avatar: No problem.

Rafe: He's right. You know, you shouldn't be out here.

Livvie: Yeah. I know, rafe, but I wasn't thinking. I was just really scared and I wanted to be with you.

Rafe: I know you're scared. But you know what? This is all going to be over soon.

Livvie: What do you mean?

Rafe: I found a way to get rid of the avatar.

Lucy: Ah, nothing like a good old-fashioned seance to get some answers. All right, ed, i think i'm going to be able to reach you, and you can explain this whole thing to me. I mean, after all, you are rafe's boss in heaven, and you can tell me what is going on, why did rafe come back, and why is he with livvie instead of alison?

[Key turns in lock]

lucy: Oh, no, doc wasn't supposed to come home yet! Oh, no, no, no, no, no!

Kevin: Well, well. What have we here?

Lucy: Um, the electricity went out.

Kevin: Nice try, lucy, but I know exactly what you're up to.

Lucy: You do? Oh, doc, listen, i can explain this.

Kevin: And I love you for it. I just love it when you plan a seduction, you sexy wench.

[Doorbell rings]

alison: Ahem.

Jack: So i got all the lip balm and sunscreen you wanted. Enough for two trips to bermuda.

Alison: Thanks. Cool.

Jack: And what's wrong?

Alison: I just -- I don't know. I can't figure out what to take.

Jack: Ok, well, it's really not that big of a deal. They're going to provide what they want you to model.

Alison: I know. I'm starting to think that maybe this is not a good idea.

Jack: What?

Alison: I'm kind of rethinking the whole bermuda trip.

Jack: Ok, ok. Is this because of the one-bedroom condo? Because they thought we were together, but we're not, so there's --

alison: So --

jack: So we're going to go there and we're going to have fun. We're going to do this gig, and it's really not a big deal.

Alison: We're staying in the same room, jack.

Jack: Alison, there's a bedroom and there's a living room. I will sleep on the couch.

Alison: Oh, get real, jack.

Jack: Alison, this is really not a big deal.

Alison: Yes, it is a big deal because I think that you think we're going to sleep together.

livvie: You know how to stop the avatar?

Rafe: I think his shroud is the key.

Livvie: His shroud?

Rafe: I'm convinced that's what's protecting him. It's the source of his power, but it's also the source of his weakness if we can just get it off.

Livvie: Well, how are you going to do that?

Rafe: Ian and I think we can trap him.

Livvie: No. No, no, no, no. You can't do that. You're going to make him angry and then he will -- he'll just --

rafe: What? No, what?

Livvie: Ah, that's just it! Rafe, I don't know. My god, he's already come -- he's already come after me and the baby.

Rafe: Ok, I know. You don't have to worry about that. I'll make sure you're nowhere near where this is going to go down, ok?

Livvie: Yeah, but you're still going to be --

rafe: I know. Livvie, I have to do this.

Livvie: Ok, but we already know what the avatar does when he's pushed. He can be so cruel.

Rafe: Exactly. He's threatened my family. I can't let him do that again.

Livvie: Ok. Ok, I will be more careful, and I won't go out alone. Please, we'll move or something.

Rafe: No, stop. I can't take any more chances.

Livvie: You're taking the biggest chance ever by going after him.

Rafe: I know what I'm doing, all right? It'll be ok.

Livvie: And what if it's not ok? What if it doesn't work?

Rafe: I'm sorry, but there are no other options.

Livvie: I just think knowing what protects the avatar and stopping it are two totally different things. How are you even going to get close enough to him to do that?

Ian: I may have an answer for that. I need to talk to you in private for one moment.

Livvie: No. No, absolutely not. If this has anything to do with the avatar, i need to know.

Ian: No, you don'T.

Rafe: She's really terrified, ian. You can understand.

Ian: That's another reason not to talk about the avatar in front of her.

Livvie: Ian, i am not a child anymore. If there's any danger out there, I want to know about it.

Ian: No one's calling you a child. And, yes, there is danger out there. What i'm telling you is that rafe and i can handle it. Trust in that, would you, please?

Livvie: Trust? Yeah, maybe if weren't carrying a child, but i am -- i'm carrying our baby now, ian, and i've got responsibilities. You out of anyone should understand that. So if this monster is after me and our baby, I want to know.

Ian: Ok. Let's keep this between the three of us.

Livvie: Of course.

Ian: Our ticket to the avatar is karen wexler.

Karen: Is that you? If it is, I need to see you, talk to you.

Kevin: Oh, lucy --

lucy: Hmm?

Kevin: I have to hand it to you, you sure know how to plan a seduction. I mean, the light, the candles -- ooh, those are roman. Wait a minute. Where's christina?

Lucy: Oh, she's with scott. She's with serena, and they're going to have a little sleepover.

Kevin: Oh, you thought of everything.

Lucy: I try.

Kevin: Oh, it looks like i kind of interrupted the lighting of the candles, the spreading of the pillow thing, didn't I?

Lucy: Yeah. Uh, yeah. Right, right.

Kevin: There's just one thing i don't get.

Lucy: Oh, really? What's that?

Kevin: I was supposed to be in a meeting tonight. How did you know that I'd be here?

Lucy: It hit me. I mean, I felt it. You know how i get those psychic telegrams that just -- I felt it.

Kevin: Someone called and told you the meeting was canceled, didn't they?

Lucy: I'll never tell.

Kevin: Well, you just come over here, then.

Oh. I tell you what, this is exactly what i needed tonight. Thank you.

Lucy: You're welcome. You know, you actually really deserve this, too. I just wish I'd thought of this sooner. I'm really sorry.

Kevin: No, no, I'm sorry. You know, I've been so preoccupied with livvie's problems, and now this lancelot thing. I haven't exactly been available.

Lucy: That's ok. You know what? We are here right now together, just us.

Kevin: All I want to do is focus on you, a night at home, and just the two of us.

Lucy: That sounds really good.

Kevin: You know?

Lucy: This feels really, really good, too.

Kevin: Mm-hmm. We can't let other issues keep us from things like this.

Lucy: Oh, no, we can't.

Kevin: No.

Lucy: No. No, no, no.

Kevin: Or this.

Lucy: Ooh, you know what? We haven't done that in a very long time.

Kevin: Oh, well, that's just the beginning.

Lucy: Really? Can you show me?

Kevin: I'll show you right now.

Lucy: Ok.

Jack: You think we're going to sleep together in bermuda?

Alison: No, that's what i think you think.

Jack: Well, alison, I mean, just because you're this hot new model doesn't mean every guy wants to sleep with you. Ok, maybe it does, but i'm not that kind of a guy. It never occurred to me.

Alison: It never occurred to you once? I don't believe that for a second.

Jack: You know, you're -- uh, what do psychologists call it? -- Oh, projecting.

Alison: Projecting?

Jack: Mm-hmm. Because you cannot get out of your mind that you want to jump my bones.

Alison: Jack!

Jack: Now, i'm flattered. I really am. But, alison, i'm not that kind of a guy. I like to take walks on the beach and stay up all night talking, eating ice cream.

Alison: Stop joking around. I'm --

jack: Whoa, hey. Who's joking?

Alison: Be serious. You weren't thinking about it for just one second?

Jack: Ok. I'm sorry. But you're going to have to find yourself a new boy toy.

Alison: Knock it off!

Jack: What?

Alison: Knock it off. Well, you can joke about it all you want, but I've thought about it.

Jack: You thought about it?

Alison: Yeah, me. I mean, come on, we're on a really beautiful island and it's very tropical and warm, and, you know, it'd be crazy not to.

Jack: Alison, I'm not trying to put any pressure on you. I do think there might be something between us, but this is not an excuse to make a move on you. I want us to go have fun, all right, and do this gig. And the last thing i want to do is stress you out. That's the last thing I want to do. I want you to be happy.

Alison: Oh -- so sweet. Thank you.

Jack: Well, since I'm so sweet, why don't we go back to the part where you've thought about it, huh?

Alison: I'm so lucky to have you in my life.

Jack: Yeah. Yeah, you are lucky.

Avatar: Karen?

Karen: Yeah.

Avatar: Are you ok?

Karen: Fine. Why does everybody keep asking me that?

Avatar: Sorry.

Karen: No, I'm sorry. It's been a long day.

Avatar: I heard you had another run-in with lancelot last night. What happened?

Karen: I don't want to talk about it.

Avatar: Maybe you should. Were you in trouble? Did he save you again?

Karen: Frank --

avatar: Look, karen, the more we know about this guy, the better off we're all going to be.

Karen: Well, you know what? There's nothing to tell, ok? He thought i was in danger, but I wasn't.

Avatar: Well, that's strange. If he thought something was going on --

karen: Frank, why can't you just let this go?

Avatar: I worry, ok? That's all. I still worry.

Karen: Well, thanks. But as you can see, I'm ok. I just don't want to talk about it.

Avatar: That bad, huh? That good?

Karen: What do you mean by that?

Avatar: Nothing. It just seems like -- like you enjoyed seeing the guy.

Karen: Don't be ridiculous.

Rafe: Karen wexler? Isn't she one of the first ones the avatar saved?

Ian: That's right.

Rafe: So how can she lead us to him?

Ian: Why don't we get together tomorrow and discuss it, ok?

Rafe: No, no, no, we can talk about this in front her. It's fine.

Ian: She already knows too much, and I think this plan has a better chance of succeeding if fewer people know about it.

Rafe: I agree with you, but livvie's my wife.

Livvie: Ok, listen to me -- would you two please stop talking about me like I'm not here? Ian, i know we've had our differences, but the one thing you know about me is i don't want dark forces in this town any more than you do.

Ian: I know that.

Livvie: Please, ian, this thing almost attacked me and my unborn child, and now my husband is putting his life on the line to stop it. I have to know what's going on, or else I'm going to make myself crazy thinking about this.

Rafe: It's ok. I want her to know.

Ian: Karen had another encounter with the avatar.

Rafe: Did he try to save her from something?

Ian: No, no, no. Just carried her away.

Rafe: Ok, carried her away? Where?

Ian: I don't know. There's some kind of attraction going on here, some beauty-and-the-beast thing, but --

livvie: You know, a lot of women are drawn to him.

Ian: The avatar is drawn to her as well. He took her to where he's hiding.

Rafe: So can she lead us to him?

Ian: I tried to have a talk about the encounter, and she lied about it.

Livvie: Well, how do you know she lied?

Ian: I overheard her talking to eve.

Livvie: Eve?

Ian: She was talking to eve at the grave.

Rafe: Well, if she lied to you, then there's no way she's going to help us, right?

Ian: Not unless we can track her.

Rafe: We can use karen to lure the avatar out in the open and then we can trap him.

Ian: Yeah. You have any ideas?

Rafe: Yeah. I think I know something that can work. And we got to get the shroud off it, find out who the host is, and then get rid of the avatar all in one shot.

Livvie: Ahem. When is this going to happen?

Ian: Tonight.

Jack: Hey, hey, this is jack ramsey. Yep, we are all set. Oh, yeah, the model in the picture is definitely coming. Yeah, I know. I know, she's perfect. Her smile is going to light up your magazine. Ok. Ok. Well, we can't wait, either, and we will see you soon in bermuda. Thanks again.

Yes.

Lucy: And congratulations.

Kevin: Congratulations?

Lucy: This was an amazing idea you had.

Kevin: This was your idea.

Lucy: Oh, oh, right. All of that, "this," but that was your idea.

Kevin: Yeah. Not bad, huh?

Lucy: It was actually rather inspired.

Kevin: Well, I definitely was inspired. Amazing, considering how long we've known each other.

Lucy: I know. It just keeps getting better and better and better. You know what?

Kevin: Hmm?

Lucy: I want to meet you upstairs.

Kevin: Ok.

Lucy: I'll call the girls and I'll be right there.

Kevin: Well, that will only take, oh, a couple hours.

Lucy: I will make it quick.

Kevin: All right, well, it'll give me time to work out my next inspiration.

Lucy: Ooh, i'll make it quicker.

Kevin: All right.

Lucy: Ok.

Kevin: Wish them sweet dreams for me?

Lucy: I will.

Kevin: Ok.

Lucy: Ok. See you in a minute.

Kevin: Better be quick.

Lucy: It's quick. I'm quick. Wow.

Lucy: Hey, scott, it's me. Can I just tell the girls nighty night over the phone, please, please? Ok, thanks. Hey, pumpkin head, it's mom. I know you know it's mom. I know. Right -- nobody else calls you pumpkin head. Well, it's me, and i love you and I miss you and i wanted to say good night. Yeah? You having fun? Ok. I'll see you in the morning. Oh, kevin says, "very sweet dreams," and we're going to have some, too. Ok. Yeah. Ta.

[Knock on door]

lucy: Who could that be at this time of the night? Alison?

Alison: Hi.

Lucy: Hi.

Alison: Why do you look so surprised to see me? You did want me to come here, right?

Lucy: Oh, my goodness. Oops, I totally forgot all about it.

Alison: Forgot about what?

Lucy: The seance.

Ian: Hey.

Karen: Ian, hey. I didn't know you were working tonight.

Ian: I'm not. I came by to see you.

Karen: Me?

Ian: Yeah. I've been thinking about you since I left the cemetery. I know you said you're fine, but I could see you were shaken up by this lancelot thing.

Karen: Ian, i --

ian: I wanted to tell you that you don't have to worry anymore.

Karen: What?

Ian: We're setting a trap for him tonight, so he won't bother you anymore.

Avatar: I know how you feel about me, karen. You'll come to me. I know you will.

Rafe: Victor, hi. It's rafe. Did you get that stuff we talked about? You did? That's great. Ok, we'll be right there. Thanks.

Livvie: Hey, honey, I -- I see you have a lot going on, so i'm going to get out of your way. But you be safe, ok?

Rafe: No, you're not going anywhere.

Livvie: What? I'm fine. I'm just going to go home.

Rafe: No, livvie, listen to me -- I'm not letting you out of my sight.

Livvie: Rafe, I'm tired. Don't be silly.

Rafe: I'm not taking any more chances with my family's safety, ok? So until this avatar is gone, I'm not leaving you alone. Not for one minute.

>> Stay tuned for scenes from the next "port charles: Torn."

>> On the next "port charles" --

jack: Alison and i are going to bermuda together tomorrow.

Livvie: I have to go.

Rafe: Where do you have to go that's so important?

Lucy: We are going to contact the big boss upstairs and we're going to say, "ed, why on earth was rafe sent back to earth"?
