He sobs and he tells her again to go. Gabrielle tells him how much she loves him and he tells her to get out, to go be with Max. Gabrielle tells Al that she knows he's upset about seeing she and Max, but that they can talk about it when he is better. Al says no. She begs him and tells him that she loves him. He tells her to leave. She says, fine she will leave...she will go get Max. He says no. She tells Al that he lost a lot of blood and that Max gave him his blood. He saved Al's life.
Lindsey, RJ and Nora
Lindsey meets RJ at The Palace, and tries not to be recognized, by wearing a scarf and sunglasses. She says she doesn't want anyone to know they met, so that no one can connect her to anything that might happened to Cristian. RJ tells her that if anything happens, being seen in public together would be a good alibi. RJ tells Lindsey that he has found evidence to support Lindsey's story. Lindsey asks RJ what he's going to do about Cristian, and RJ says he's going to do what needs to be done...get rid of Cristian. Lindsey tells RJ that she just wants Cristian out of her life. RJ says who asked you what you wanted. Nora arrives at The Palace, having returned from her vacation in Chicago, and approaches RJ and Lindsey. RJ begins to tell Nora all about Lindsey's actions, while Nora was away. He tells Nora about Lindsey putting Cristian's life on the internet; about how Will moved away; and about the fact that Sam finally turned Lindsey loose. Lindsey looks at RJ with loathing, and tells him that she hates him. RJ continues to run Lindsey down in front of Nora, telling her that Jen disowned Lindsey as well. Nora says that she is glad that Lindsey is finally suffering for "one" of the awful things she has done. Lindsey asks Nora if she wants to gloat, and Nora says yes, that she thinks she does. Lindsey tells Nora that she got what she wanted, and thanks Nora. Nora is flabbergasted that Lindsey blames her for all of her problems, when she hasn't even been in town. Lindsey says that at least she didn't "murder" anyone, and Nora says "no, you just torture them until they wish they were dead". RJ enjoys Nora's comeback immensely, and tells her he is glad she's back. Soon Nora leaves RJ and Lindsey alone. After Nora leaves, Lindsey tells RJ that whatever he does to Cristian, he'll have to keep it quiet, because Nora saw them together and she doesn't want to be connected to anything. RJ tells Lindsey that she is not a part of this anymore, that he'll make sure that Cristian pays. Lindsey says that she doesn't want Cristian to get hurt. RJ says that all Lindsey needs to know is that Cristian Vega will definitely be out of their lives. He then leaves Lindsey. RJ goes home, and soon a man arrives. His name is "Keith" and RJ asks him if he understands that their meeting "never happened". Keith says that he understands, and asks what RJ would like done. RJ tells him that he understands that he is skilled at "helping people relocate". He tells Keith that he wants him to put an ocean between he and Cristian. He tells Keith to get him to go to some country where there's a war on or something, that he just wants him gone. Keith looks at the picture that RJ gives him of Cristian and says that it might be very nice if he's gone.
Jen, Cristian and Al
As Jen and Cristian sit in the waiting room of the hospital, Jen tells Cristian that maybe they should go back to see about Al. Cristian tells her to stay there and he will go see how he's doing. As he is leaving, Dr. McGuyver approaches, and Jen asks how Al is doing. Dr. McGuyver tells them that he's much better...he's improving, which is a very positive sign. He says he doesn't know if Al would have made it if Jen hadn't been there. The ER then pages Dr. McGuyver and he tells Cristian and Jen that he has to go. He tells them that Al is waking up if they want to go see him, and he leaves. Cristian tells Jen that she's amazing for what she did for Al. Jen tells Cristian that she was on her way to pick him up for their weekend together, and she ruined everything. He says that now that she knows Al is ok they COULD still go, but Jen says that she doesn't think she wants to go while Al is still in the hospital, in case something happens. Cristian understands. Jen mentions the money that Cristian spent for the weekend, but Cristian says that doesn't matter, he cares about her. Jen tells Cristian that she was afraid that Cristian might be jealous of Al. Cristian tells her that he has no reason to be. He says he still wants to go away with Jen, whenever she's ready, but right now she needs to be there and he needs to be there for her. Jen goes to see Al, and Sam approaches and speaks with Cristian. They talk about Troy McGuyver, and Cristian says he was cool, that he was nice to Jen. Sam gives him a look, and Cristian reassures him that he will watch out for Jen. Sam thanks him. Suddenly Blair approaches.
Jen and AL
Jen goes to see Al, and tells him that his mom was really worried about him. Al says that it was her fault; that she lied to him, and he had to get away. Jen tells Al that she is the one that found him. Al starts to fall asleep, so Jen turns to leave. Cristian is in the doorway and they embrace. Al opens his eyes and sees the embrace. Later, Cristian makes a phone call, and cancels the reservations at the hotel. Jen apologizes, and asks him if he can get the deposit back. He says he can't, and Jen offers to get the money back to him. He tells her no, and then tells her that he changed the reservations for next weekend, so they can still go away. She tells him she can't wait.
Max,Todd and Blair
After Todd tells Max that he's going to help him by telling him the truth, Max tells him that he doesn't need any truth from Todd. He tells Todd to get the hell out of here, that he has to go talk to his son. Todd brings up Max "bedding" Gabrielle, and Blair approaches. She tells Max that she knows about it, but doesn't care. Max asks Todd what the hell he did. Blair tells him that she doesn't care, that it was just a "fling". Max is surprised, and says yeah, that's all it was. Blair tells him she loves him and that there's nothing Max can do to change that. She begins to talk about the baby, and Todd tells Max that he hopes Gabrielle gives him exactly what he deserves. Blair tells Todd that Gabrielle won't give Max anything, because she is out of his life. Todd tells Blair to keep telling herself that. Todd then leaves. Max and Blair discuss Al's accident. Blair says that she was going to cancel the wedding, but since Al is getting better...Max interrupts, and tells Blair he can't marry her right now. Blair says that she thought Al was getting better. Max tells her that he is, but he needs to stick around and make sure Al gets on his feet. He tells Blair that he still loves her, but that right now Al is his priority. Blair asks how long it will be until Al is better and Max says he doesn't know...they don't know much now. Blair leaves, upset.
Blair and Sam
Upset by what just occurred between she and Max. Sam tries to talk to her, but she is far to upset. He tells her that her marriage to Max will still happen, just a little later. She says there is not enough time, before the baby arrives. Sam tells her to tell Todd the truth. She says she can't because he will take the baby away, just like he did Starr. Suddenly, Blair doubles over in obvious pain. Dr. McGuyver approaches to see if Blair is ok. He and Sam sit her down and Dr. McGuyver asks her what the pain felt like. Blair says it felt like a contraction. The Dr. asks how far along she is, and Blair lies, and says about six months. The Dr. says he thinks it might be false contractions, but that he is going to have her Dr. do an ultrasound, just to be sure. Later, Sam asks Dr. McGuyver how long it will be. Dr. McGuyver tells him that it shouldn't be much longer now. Soon Blair's Dr. approaches and says that it was just what Dr. McGuyver said it was, false contractions, and that both Blair, and the baby are doing well. Blair then approaches and Dr. McGuyver tells her he's glad she's ok. She thanks him for all his help, and Sam offers to take her home. She tells him no, that she wants to go alone. Sam asks her if she's ok about not marrying Max, and she says that she learned her lesson and promises not to let anything happen to the baby. She says that she's also not going to worry about Todd finding anything out either. Sam wishes her luck, and she leaves.
Max, Al and Gabrielle
Max goes to Al's room, and tells Jen and Cristian that he needs to see Al. Al thanks Jen for what she did, before she leaves. Max tells Al that he knows he doesn't want to see him. Al tells him that he's right. Max goes on to say that Al can hate him all he wants, but not to hate his mother. He says that Gabrielle loves him more than anyone else in the world. That she went to prison for Al. Al tells Max that she lied. Max tells him to cut her some slack. He says that she married Asa so she could take care of Al, because taking care of him means everything to her. Gabrielle is standing in the doorway, and overhears everything that Max says to Al. She approaches and says that she heard what Max said, and she wants Al to forgive Max. That he deserves Al's love. She tells him that it was wrong of her to tell him all the things she did, in the past about Max, and that he loves Al, and is his father and would do anything for Al. He gave him his blood. No matter what, he would give up his life for Al. Al says "YOU wouldn't?". Gabrielle says that of course she would, but Max is different. No matter what, if he never got love from Al in return, he would still give everything he has without expecting anything from Al. Gabrielle goes on to say that she's been so lucky to have Al's love all these years, but Max hasn't. She says it doesn't matter if Max never gets it, because he would give everything up in a heartbeat for Al. Looking at Max, she says that that is true love. Max turns and leaves the room, and Al says "you've fallen in love with him again". Gabrielle just looks at Al.
Sam and Troy McGuyver
Sam calls Nora and leaves her a message, telling her it's about Troy. After leaving the message, Sam turns around to find Troy standing there. Troy asks why he is calling Nora about him, and Sam says he called Nora to warn her. Troy says about me?? Sam tells him it's about the fact that Troy decided to move to Llanview, where Nora lives. Sam tells Troy that the Free Clinic he is opening is just Troy's way of trying to make up for what Colin did. He tells Troy that he told Nora he was leaving, and now he's not. Troy says that people need medical care, and Sam tells him that Nora is not going to buy that for a second. Troy tells Sam that if he's so worried about Nora being afraid of him, then why did he wait until now to tell her he's staying, to which Sam says it was because he wanted her to enjoy her vacation.
Blair and Todd
As Blair starts to leave, Todd appears from behind a corner, and asks her where she's going. Blair asks him since when does he care where she's going? He says he doesn't care, but again he asks where she's going. Blair tells Todd that she and Max called off the wedding. Todd says something sarcastic about having just bought a new suit, and Blair tells him to shut up. She tells him he got everything he wanted, and that he's not going to see her again. She says she's leaving this stinking town, and doesn't care if she sees Max or Todd again. Todd says what about Starr? Blair laughs and says what about her? You don't let me see her. Todd says that he just sent her to a boarding school, it's not like she's not coming back. Blair looks hopeful until Todd adds that Starr will be back...when she's 18. Blair tells Todd that her baby is going to grow up without a father. She tells him it is HER baby..all hers. She tells him he won..he beat her, and he is never going to see her baby or her ever again. She walks aways.
Sam, Todd and Blair
Blair goes home and begins to write a letter to Todd. Sam approaches Todd outside, and asks if he has seen Blair. Todd tells him that she's gone somewhere; somewhere where she can't be found. As Blair is writing the letter, Sam tries to convince Todd that Blair really does want to be with him. He tells Todd to go after her, but Todd says that it's too late. He says that she's having Max's kid. Sam still tries to convince him that Blair wants Todd. Todd asks what he means. Sam tells him it's privileged lawyer information, but that Todd should just go after Blair, and ask her what she told him. He says that he's done all he can, that the rest is up to Todd. He leaves Todd alone to his thoughts. Meanwhile, Blair finishes her letter to Todd. It goes something like this: Dear Todd,
By the time you read this, I'll be gone. I used to think we were meant to be together. That no matter what happened, we could always find our way back to each other. You used to love me. And heaven help me, I still love you. I wanted you to love this baby as much as I did. Now it's gone too far. We've gone too far to find our way back again. I don't think there's anything left between us. Except for one thing. This baby. It's not Max's baby. It's your baby Todd. It's ours. I lost Starr for now, but I will always have our child. I'll take such good care of our baby. He or she will get all the love that is meant for you. Always,
