Erica goes to see Dr. Madden. She tells him she has to talk to him. He asks her if there is a problem with
Amanda goes to see JR and tells him that she’s already told Babe to leave her alone and the same goes for him. He then asks her how much money it will take for her to leave town. He sounds like he might want to get revenge upon her for his son getting kidnapped.
Babe is by herself outside. Janet comes up behind her and looks dangerous.
JR wields a crow bar at Amanda and tells her that he knows about her violent tendencies and her mother murdering his uncle Will. She tells him to take the crow bar and stick it. He tells her that it must have sucked for her when all the other children were telling the teacher about the occupations of mommy and daddy. She got to tell everybody that her mother is a homicidal psychopath. She tells him to shut up. He reminds her that there is suspicion that Jonathan Lavery kidnapped his son but it cannot be proven. He believes that she is as likely to have done it as Jonathan is, and he’s about ready to let the entire town know that there is another crazy, dangerous Dillon woman wandering the streets on the loose.
Janet talks to Babe. She acts phony nice to her telling her that she knows how upsetting it must be that somebody may have kidnapped her child. She realizes how it might make Babe want to do crazy things. She “shares” with Babe that if somebody had taken her child from her, she might want to throw them from a building, and she motions that she might do that very thing to Babe.
Erica admits to Dr. Madden that she’s
having problems talking to Jack about Kendall’s pregnancy, as Jack is still
very angry at her daughter for what she “did” to Greenlee. Hearing that, Dr. Madden tells Erica that
he’s not certain he can help her or that he could motivate Jack to realize that
Amanda tells JR that he’s going to be a pitiful mess when Babe gets through with him. Hearing that, he gets angry. She tells him that he is gullible if he falls for babe not knowing what she’s done to him until it’s too late. She tells JR that she’s excited to sit back and watch what will happen to him. He makes threatening comments to her, and Josh, who has been listening in on their conversation, comes out and tells JR he needs to leave.
Bianca goes to find Zach and tells him
that she made a big mistake to encourage him to go after
Josh tells JR he needs to leave Amanda
alone. She is working. They both work for Erica and JR needs to get
out of there and let them do their jobs.
He tells Josh he’s going but tells him he’s not the “man” he thinks he
is. He leaves. Alone with Amanda, Josh tells her he really
hopes that she did not kidnap the
Janet tells Babe all about being a mother. She tells her that she has a special Amanda phone and knows that she needs to stay in her child’s life. Babe tries to be courteous to Janet and tells her that maybe she needs to talk to her daughter about all the things she’s done. Janet cries and talks about her daughter when she was a little girl and the whole history. Babe tells Janet that she’s concerned about Amanda, knows she has a serious problem and she wants to help her. Janet then tells Babe she must do her best to make sure there is no more “trouble” between the two of them.
Bianca tells Zach that she only made
things worse and should have stayed in
Erica tells Dr. Madden that it’s amazing and beyond coincidental that he is the doctor who is treating her daughter while in her dream, he was her doctor. She informs him that he was not a fertility doctor but a psychiatrist, and he kept asking her what she thinks and feels. She tells him that she wonders what that might mean. He tells her he cannot help her understand her dream or see himself as a shrink. The only dream he has about himself helping people is in regard to their need to have children. Right then, Jack enters. Erica tells him that she is hoping that he can have a conversation with Dr. Madden. Jack sounds calm and not angry. He assures Dr. Madden that it’s unlikely that his daughter, Greenlee will bring charges against him for what he did. Although, he tells him, she should. Erica then asks Jack not to get into this right now.
Josh is talking to a reporter about his job as Erica’s producer. Amanda listens to their conversation from the top of the stairs. She also hears him speaking negatively about Erica and her previous drinking problem. She asks him why he’s bringing up Erica’s drinking history as she believes it’s in the past. He tells her that he needs her to “keep an eye” on Erica.
Janet tells Babe that the last time she “lost” Amanda was the last time they moved. Amanda was older than Little Adam but she was equally worried about her child. She looked all over but could not find her, and she wondered if some crazy might have taken her. JR comes in and tells Janet that she needs to stop bothering Babe or he will have her right back in the loony bin. Babe asks him to calm down but he tells Janet that he knows her daughter is a psycho who has done many terrible things. She’s threatened to kill Babe, drugged Jamie, lied and stole from him and his family. He also informs Janet all about the “pity party” Amanda inflicted upon him and Babe and Jamie when she told them she needed them to “help” her because she could not go home and live with her psycho mommy. Hearing that, Janet tells JR that he is a hateful man. Babe tells JR that Mrs. Dillon has a plane to catch. Janet asks JR how he dares speak that way about her daughter. She leaves. Babe asks JR how he can say such terrible things about her daughter to her. He tells her that Amanda is sick and her mother needs to realize that and she’s a psycho herself. Babe tells him that Janet is Amanda’s mother and loves her daughter and regardless of Amanda’s problems, they should cut her mother a little bit of slack. JR tells Babe that her problem is that she’s too nice. Hearing that, she tells him she does not know if that’s a compliment or an insult but he may be right.
Josh notices that an important paper he needs is missing. He asks Amanda about it and hopes that she made a back-up copy. She admits she did not. He tells her that he knows she had a black-out right after she attempted to prepare the paper for him. He tells her she must realize that this is an important job, not a college paper, and Erica counts on them.
Erica asks Jack why he went to talk to Dr.
Madden. She admits she seriously doubts
he was there to discuss
Ryan and Kendall arrive at Dr. Madden’s
office. He’s surprised to see Ryan but
Zach tells Bianca that he and Kendall need
a “new beginning” but he realizes, just like she does, that their mother,
Erica, does not much care for him. She
tells him she does not want him to hurt her sister. He tells her he doesn’t want that to happen
either. He wants to give
Zach tells Bianca that he has some ideas
he’s working on, and hopefully, it will encourage
When Dr. Madden is examining
Erica informs Jack that Greg Madden confessed to her that he still loves her and she knows that he still has some sort of secret. Jack tells her that he could sense that Greg loved her, when they saw him at the restaurant after their honeymoon. She informs him that she’s determined to get to the bottom of the mystery of Dr. Madden. She has Tad on the case and she tells her husband that he needs to back off and let her do things her way. He tells her he knows he cannot control her but he’s concerned. Knowing that Dr. Madden has some sort of secret, she could be in danger.
Zach tells Bianca that maybe they should
celebrate. She is courteous to him
throughout the conversation but asks him why
Ryan goes in and hears the baby’s heart
beating. He is amazed and seems to bond
Jack tells Erica that he’s concerned about what Dr. Madden has done to his daughter. He realizes Erica can make her own decisions but he’s concerned about what Dr. Madden can do to her. He tells her she must let Tad handle the case for her but she tells him there is something beyond what Tad can do that only she can uncover.
Josh privately tells Amanda that he has a plan, and in the end, Erica will not know what hit her.
Babe informs JR that Zach offered to buy her out of Fusion and she’s tempted to take his offer because he can give her a lot of money. JR tells her she mustn’t let any of them scare her off. He then tells her that maybe they can “celebrate” New Years a bit early. He kisses her and she tells him that she’d like to go with him to hit those Fusion spreadsheets.
Janet looks in the mirror and sees herself with different hair (possibly her alter) asking her if she’s going to let that bitch, Babe and that jerk JR hurt her daughter. Janet tells the woman in the mirror that she knows what she’s doing. The woman in the mirror tells Janet that she will only screw the whole thing up but Janet looks happy and confident as she tells her that she has a really good plan.
