Passions Update Wednesday 4/25/01
Outside the Bennetts'.
Theresa and Ethan are discussing Sam. Ethan says he will never respect him if he continues to disrespect his mother. Theresa explaines that he saved his life and that although his mother wants to be a family with him, his family is with Grace and Sam will never leave his wife. Theresa is hurt that he thinks Sam should end his marriage for Ivy. Ethan tells her his mother loves him and Sam should be with a woman who truly loves him. Theresa is upset that Ethan would be so quick to back out of marriage. She believes that marriage is forever and she thought he felt the same. She tells him she can't marry him if he thinks he can get out of it so easy. Ethan says he doesn't believe this. Its just that Sam's marriage is shaky right now and he's worried about his mother-he doesn't want her to be alone. Theresa hopes he won't bail out if they have trouble and they both vow they will never leave each other.
Eve and Grace continue to discuss Sam and Ivy. Grace still believes Sam is not over Ivy yet-they have a child together. Eve mentions again that he didn't know about Ethan. Grace can not trust Sam again until he talks with Ivy and gets pass his feelings for her. From a listening distance, Ivy says to herself that Grace is right to be afraid-Sam still loves her and she plans to reignite their love. Grace says she wants a man to love her and only her. Eve tells her again that Sam does but Grace says again that he must get over his feelings. Eve asks Grace if Sam talking to Ivy is what she really wants.
Sam and TC are talking about Grace and Ivy. TC thinks he should talk to Ivy to get his marriage back. Sam says he has other worries-the kids. TC tells him that Father Lonigan told them not to go in and maybe Grace knows what she's doing. TC says a man never gets over his first love and that Grace may be right-he might still love Ivy. Sam assures him he has no feelings for Ivy and leaves to go find her. He sees her and tells her they need to talk about putting their past and feelings to rest. Ivy tells herself she will never forget and they will have a future together with Ethan. Sam leaves to find Grace and before he has a chance to speak, the house begins to fall apart and Grace comments that it is ironic-their house and marriage falls apart at the same time.
Sheridan and Hank are talking and she tells him about the near-proposal before they got the call to come to the house. When met with Luis, Hank mentions he heard about the one knee at the cottage and that he hoped he didn't forget the question. Luis says he could never forget that question and attempts to go back into the house. Hank leaves to say hi to Grace and Sam leaving Sheridan and Luis. Luis asks that she knew he was going to propose and Sheridan says she was hoping. Luis says that before they discuss marriage any further, they have to come to terms with something or they'll never last. Luis tells her that if she was to marry him, she'd become the wife of a cop and has to accept that he would be faced with danger everyday and she cannot worry about him all the time. Sheridan says he can quit being a cop and after they're married, they will have all of the money that Sheridan has. Luis says he wouldn't be happy not being able to provide for them and Sheridan says at least she wouldn't worry.
Inside the Bennetts' House
When F. Lonigan returns outside, everyone asks if they can go in yet. He tells them an angel sent someone to rescue them and he's in the house now. The SWA T team arrives after Sam called them with bullet and fire proof shields. F. Lonigan reminds them that this force can only be fought spiritually, but they prepare to go in any way. All the men volunteer to go. Eve tells Grace to tell Sam she loves him before he goes. All the women say fearful good lucks and good byes to their men. Sam orders everyone to go through the front door. As he passes Grace, she stops him and simply says be careful. F. Lonigan and the women begin to pray as the men are met at the front door by fire.
