Port Charles Update Monday 6/25/01
Gabby is still telling Joe that she can’t leave, but he
doesn’t understand. He asks her if it’s her family, the stress, is she
overwhelmed? He states that she’s been acting strange lately. Gabby doesn’t
want to talk, all she wants is for him to make love to her. They sink to the
concerned about leaving Jack in the alley with the three guys, Alison argues
with Jamal that they should go back. Jamal disagrees. Jamal tells her that the
guys aren’t moving because of Jack. Alison is still confused. Jamal says that
Jack wanted to kill them. He snapped out of it, but he was completely out of
control. She wants to figure it out, but Jamal tells her that she’s going to
stay with Amanda.
comes through the door to the lighthouse, he wants to know where Livvie is.
Telling him that Livvie’s not there, Lucy asks him where he’s been. Trying
to walk past her, he tells her that it doesn’t matter, he just has to find
Livvie. Trying to calm him, Lucy tells him that Kevin is on an emergency call,
but they can sit and talk until he gets back. She wants to know what’s wrong.
The look on his face while she’s talking is one of being about to lose
control, and trying to fight it. All he cares about is Livvie, but Lucy wants to
know what’s going on. She offers him tea, and he yells at her that all he
needs is Livvie. When he turns, he slaps the cup out of her hand, shattering it
against the wall. Wiping her face, she asks him what’s wrong.
tells Livvie that she’s home. She wants to know what she’s doing there, but
Caleb tries to convince her that she belongs there. It’s where her dreams come
true. He’ll take care of all her needs and desires, all he wants is for her to
be happy, and to be his. He touches her face, then gently runs his fingers to
the end of her hair.
helps Lucy clean up, and he apologizes to her. She’s okay, she’s just
worried about him. Spotting a sandwich on the table, he takes it and devours it
by taking it apart and shoveling it in his mouth. More worried about him, Lucy
offers to make him something to eat if he’s that hungry. She’s not a good
cook, but she can find him something to eat. Her chatter fades when Jack
grimaces in pain and almost falls to the ground at her feet. He’s still
convinced that all he needs to feel better is Livvie.
But Lucy’s convinced he needs more than Livvie, he needs a doctor. He
needs to see Livvie, he needs to touch her. Lucy goes right into mothering mode,
telling him that he needs to sit down. He tries to leave but she pushes him
towards the sofa. Making him sit down, she realizes that he’s burning up, and
takes his jacket off. When she sees the hole the bullet left, she stops,
realizing he was shot.
tells Livvie that he has looked for her in every crowd, and in every woman’s
face, but none of them were right. None of them were her. Livvie says she
shouldn’t be there, but she doesn’t sound convinced. Promising her that
there is nothing they can’t do together, he pulls a black sheer shawl from the
bed to wrap around her shoulders. Caleb tells her that anything she wants, he
can give it to her. Livvie asks him if he wants her to stay, and he promises
he’ll never force her. He wants her to choose to be with him. To see him as
her protector, as vital as the air she breathes. He knows she will see him in
that way. He can already see it in her eyes.
is on the ground, barely able to breathe. He tells her that it was incredible,
and pulls her close. It’s feels strange that nothing’s holding them back
after living with uncertainty of his HIV status for so long. This move is quick
for him because he doesn’t want to be held back, but he’ll slow down if
it’s too quick for her. All that matters is that she knows how much he loves
her. She’s staring into space, not answering him. When he presses her for an
answer, she finally tries to avoid him. He won’t let her avoid answering him,
and finally she tells him that it isn’t enough, and she’s met someone else.
and Jamal are still arguing. Jamal puts stuff in her suitcase, Alison pulls it
out. He wants her to stay with Amanda while he figures out what’s going on.
It’s safer for her to be out of the shop. Jack has changed, and Jamal
doesn’t trust him anymore. The fight in the alley was a lot more than just a
fight. But Alison won’t leave him. She doesn’t believe Jack would ever hurt
her. Bringing up the kiss, Jamal won’t let her play it off as a joke. They
buried him, the coffin was blown open, and he’s walking around without a
scratch. Jamal is afraid that Jack is violent, and he’s out of control. He
threw three guys like they were nothing, and what he did to Chris--he didn’t
even break out in a sweat. It doesn’t matter who his friends are, when he
snaps, there’s not stopping him, and Jamal wonders if Jack killed Zach. But
Jamal won’t take chances with Livvie or Alison.
shows him the bullet. Jack denies it, but Lucy knows it hit him. The way he’s
been acting, the way he’s been feeling, the bullet could be responsible. The
bullet could have caused an infection. Jack has to agree it makes sense. He has
a fever, and she’s going to get him a cold washcloth. Jack looks like he’s
about to lose it again, and Lucy is still trying to help him. She wants to look
where the bullet might have hit him. It doesn’t hurt him at all, and Lucy
can’t get over how hot his skin is. While Lucy is trying to find the injury,
Jack’s eyes are closed. But then he opens his eyes and he’s got that
intense, heated look again. Staring at her, he takes her by the face, leaning
her back on the sofa. He’s trying to kiss her, but she’s telling him to
stop. She struggles, but he’s stronger, and he begins to hurt her. Finally,
she draws her fist back and punches him. It seems to snap him out of it and he
apologizes to her. Starting to cry, he continues to apologize to her, telling
her he doesn’t know what’s happening to him. More worried than ever, she
decides it’s time to take him to the hospital. Not giving him a chance to say
no, she leads him out the door.
is telling Livvie that she knows him and she doesn’t need to be afraid. Still
not convincing, she tells him she’s not afraid. He tells her that it’s his
kiss she’s been dreaming about. He’s the one she’s been waiting for her
whole life. She’ll never be afraid, or alone, because he’ll always be with
her. Throughout the entire speech, he continues to call her Olivia. Caleb stands
and takes her hand, pulling her to her feet and into his arms. Closing her eyes,
Livvie leans against him. Soon they are dancing together, faster and faster,
until Caleb is lifting Livvie off her feet. They kiss passionately.
is still in shock. Gabby tells him she’s sorry, but it just happened. She
wasn’t looking for it, but it happened. He keeps firing the questions at her,
but she can’t explain. She didn’t cheat on him the whole time, and she never
meant to hurt him. He thought she was happy with him. She was, but not anymore.
She can’t get him out of her head. She’s tried, and she can’t pretend she
never met him, not that she’s sure she wants to. Joe finally asks her the real
question. How could she have made love to him and not think about this guy. Her
eyes avoid his, and he gets it. She was thinking about Caleb while she made love
to him. Devastated, Joe grabs his things and walks out the door, telling her to
stay the hell away from his life. Alone, Gabby remembers the meeting with Caleb
and she realizes she doesn’t know his name.
locks the front door, closes the bathroom door, and leaves a message for Dara
that he needs to tell her about a dead guy who didn’t stay dead. As he hangs
up, Alison appears, having heard every word.
is examining Jack, and Lucy is watching. Jack’s temperature is 104 degrees. He
wants Livvie, and Karen agrees to call her for him. But Lucy tells Karen that they have to find out what’s wrong with
him before they scare Livvie. Understanding, Karen tells Lucy that she’s going
to admit Jack and find out what’s wrong with him. Lucy and Karen discuss the
bullet, and how he was acting. Watching him shake and shift on the gurney, Lucy
mentions how jittery and how uncomfortable he is, and asks Karen if she can give
him something. Karen tells Lucy that she’s already given him enough sedative
to take down a horse, she doesn’t know how Jack’s awake.
seems to finally realize where she is. Remembering that she belongs with Jack
and that she loves Jack, she shakes her head. Pulling away from Caleb, she tells
him to stop calling her Olivia, and to leave her alone. After she runs away,
Caleb remembers Michael’s words about how Michael didn’t destroy Olivia,
Caleb did. Caleb screams her name and stares into space.
and Ian are in the church, and it’s destroyed. They hear a noise from the
basement, and Eve wonders if they should go look.
tells Jamal and Alison that Jack might be in trouble, but Jamal tells her that
he might not be the only one

They try to stop Jack from leaving, but he gets by all of them and runs out of
