One Life to Live Update Friday 9/28/01
Cristian, Jen, Antonio, Keith, Lindsey and RJ
At the college, Cristian is sitting in the lounge area. In the background, Keith is aiming a gun at Cristian, hiding it under a jacket. Just as Keith is about to pull the trigger, Jen walks up to Cristian, and blocks Keith's view of Cristian. Keith continues to watch Cristian. As Cristian and Jen talk, Antonio approaches. Keith quickly puts the gun completely under the jacket. Antonio tells Cristian that he wants him to come to the police department to look at some mug shots. He says he as a really bad feeling about Cristian's mugger. Cristian asks Antonio if he thinks someone is after him, and Antonio says that he doesn't, but he just wants to play it safe. He tells Cristian that it just doesn't add up about the mugger. Cristian finally agrees to go to the station to look at the mug shots...after class. Antonio tells him that he will wait until class is over to make sure Cristian shows up. Meanwhile, Keith pulls a small vial out of his pocket, and says "Who needs the gun? Now there's a cleaner way to do the job". Jen worries about Cristian, but he assures her that nothing will happen to him. He then says he has to get to class, but a girl they know approaches, and says that the class might be cancelled. They all go to check the bulletin board. While they are gone, Keith picks up a soda that Jen got for Cristian, and pours the content of the vial inside the bottle and replaces it. Cristian and Jen come back to the lounge area, and Antonio comes back from getting coffee. Cristian tells Antonio that class was cancelled. He tells Antonio that he'll take Jen to his house and drop her off, and then will go to the police department to look at the mug shots. Antonio tells him to be there in 20 minutes...and to be careful. He then leaves. Jen asks Cristian if he wants to take his soda with him, and he says yes, so she grabs it and they leave campus. Meanwhile, back at Cristian's apartment, Lindsey arrives, and knocks on the door. She calls for Jen..and then RJ shows up behind her with the keys to the apartment and tells her if she really wants to get in he'll let her in. She does not take him up on the offer, and instead leaves a note on the door for Jen. As RJ and Lindsey are talking, Cristian and Jen walk up behind them, and ask what they are doing there. RJ says that he was just asking Lindsey to leave. Lindsey tells Jen that she was just leaving her a note, and Jen grabs the note, hands it back to Lindsey, and tells her she doesn't want her note and never wants to see her again. Cristian tells Lindsey to leave Jen alone, and he and Jen go inside his apartment, and close the door. Meanwhile, Keith cuts the picture of Cristian and Jen in half, and stares at the half of Jen. Suddenly his cell phone rings, and he answers it. It's RJ. He asks him why the job isn't done yet; why Cristian isn't gone yet; and Keith tells him to relax, that it's just a matter of time now. RJ asks "Until what?" and Keith says "Until Cristian is long gone". Inside Cristian's apartment, Jen is upset by her mother's being there, and Cristian tries to calm her down. He asks her if she wants something to drink, and she says she does. He offers her his soda, saying he barely touched it, and she takes it from him. She opens it, and they begin to talk. After a moment, she starts to take a drink.
Melanie, Hank, Lindsey and Bo
Melanie is talking to Hank, and tells him that she can't believe that Bo has set a date for their wedding. She is excited. But Hank feels bad that he let it slip, and Bo hasn't told her yet. He didn't know this. Melanie tells him that she won't tell Bo, that she'll act completely surprised. Hank tells her that he doesn't mind Bo knowing that he told her. He doesn't want her to lie to Bo, and tells her to tell Bo the truth..always. He says that if there's one thing Bo hates, it's dishonesty. Meanwhile, Lindsey is talking to Bo in his office. Lindsey tells Bo that she and Melanie don't have an Aunt Louise. She tells him that Melanie probably meant Aunt Rana. Bo insists the gift that was sent to he and Melanie was from an Aunt Louise. He says that since Lindsey and Melanie have different mothers, it might be an aunt from Melanie's mother's side of the family, but Lindsey says that she has met everyone on Melanie's mother's side of the family, and there was no Aunt Louise. Lindsey offers that sometimes people have "honorary" aunts, and maybe it's something like that. She tells Bo he shouldn't worry, that Melanie probably has a logical explanation. Bo tells Lindsey that she's right, he probably read the card wrong. Lindsey tells him that their Aunt Rana is so eccentric, she probably signed the card as Aunt Louise. Suddenly Bo gets a phone call from the mayor that he has to take, so Lindsey leaves. After Bo hangs up from talking to the mayor, he sits down, and begins to look worried. He remembers the story that Melanie gave about her Aunt Louise. Suddenly Melanie bursts through the door, and hugs Bo and thanks him for setting the wedding date. She tells him that Hank told her. She is so happy and excited, but Bo is still obviously disturbed by the "Aunt Louise" situation. She asks him if he's ok, and he says not really. She asks what's wrong, and he tells her he's a little confused. She asks him what about, and he tells her "about Aunt Louise". He says that Lindsey told him that she doesn't have an Aunt Louise. Melanie tells Bo that of course she has an Aunt Louise. She tells him that Lindsey doesn't know her, that she's on her mother's side of the family. Melanie tries to blame Lindsey for trying to cause trouble between she and Bo. Bo asks if Melanie thinks that Aunt Louise will be able to make it to the wedding this time, and Melanie stumbles over her words. Bo tells her that he doesn't believe her and asks her what is going on. Melanie tells him nothing is wrong, and says she's not doing anything. Bo tells her to please tell him the truth. He says that he doesn't want to have to go down to Logan's and ask them who sent the gift, and Melanie says "Please don't do that". Bo tells her if she loves him, to tell him the truth. She finally admits that there is no Aunt Louise. She made her up. Bo asks her what she was thinking, and she says that she did it because she wanted the china, and he didn't. He asks her why she didn't just buy it and she says she was going to but when she got to the counter, the salesperson asked her if she wanted it gift wrapped, and that she just loves unwrapping gifts, so she just couldn't resist. Bo is upset and says that she lied to him. She tells him not about anything important. She tells him that she loves him, and that's the truth. She says that's all that matters right? Suddenly an officer knocks on the door and tells Bo that the other commissioners are there for the meeting that Bo has to attend. He starts to leave, and Melanie stops him and asks "what about us"? Bo says "Us? I don't know right now. We're gonna have to talk about this later." He starts to leave again, but Melanie stops him and says "we're ok, right"? He doesn't answer, and she is upset. He leaves. Melanie calls Lindsey after Bo leaves, and yells at her for telling Bo there was no Aunt Louise. She tells Lindsey that she is "going to pay".
