is pounding on the door to the lighthouse, and when Kevin opens it, he’s
surprised to see her. She asks him if he got her messages, and if he did, why
he didn’t call her back. He tries to tell her that he did call her back, but
she mumbled at him and hung up. She swears she was awake, but after she thinks
about it, she kind of remembers the phone call. But she had this dream, more
like this incredible experience. Kevin decides that because he loves her, he has
to ask her to share. Lucy goes on a long monologue about the late night psychic
and how she connected with Madam Alicia. She’s more excited as she tells him
that they both came to the same conclusions at the same time. It has something
to do with the Stranger and the Baby Boy. She’s not sure what it means, but
she knows its part of the puzzle.
and Eve enter their apartment. He welcomes ‘Lambert’ home, and she asks if
he’s going to continue to call her Lambert even thought their married.
Dragging her back out the door, he carries her over the threshold, welcoming
home “Dr. Lambert” and “Mrs. Thornhart.” She tells him that she
couldn’t sleep last night because she was thinking about Michael. Ian decides
that they better steer clear of the brothers for a while. Eve maintains that
they can’t blame Michael for Caleb’s actions. Ian isn’t blaming Michael,
but Caleb is unpredictable and he doesn’t want him near Eve or the baby.
remembers her last meeting with Caleb as she’s walking through the halls of GH.
The erotic memories of the ice cube, and his words of the good life are running
through her mind. Chris interrupts her memories by asking her to work the blood
bank. This makes her smile, and she moves to put the files she was carrying on
and Karen exit the elevator and discuss talking to Gabby. When they call her
name, she tells them that she’s not interested in talking about Joe. Frank
gets angry at her and reminds her that Joe is his brother, and Gabby messed him
up pretty good. Instantly defensive, Gabby says she’s sorry, but he’s better
off. Karen tries to smooth things over between Frank and Gabby by telling her
that Joe’s just worried about her, and they all are. This thing with this new
man was so sudden. Glaring at them, Gabby informs them that she knows what
she’s doing. Frank asks her if she cares about Joe, and when she says she
does, Frank asks her why she dumped him. Trying to leave, Gabby tells them
it’s none of their business, but she runs into Frank, dropping the file in her
hand. The top page has ‘Caleb’ written all over it. Staring at her, Frank
asks her if this is a little too adolescent.
dumps a stack of books on Jack’s desk, and says that he’s going to read and
try to figure out a way take care of Caleb. Jack has another idea. Holding a
stake in his hand, he tells Jamal that he’s going to drive it through that
picks up the file with Caleb written all over inside it. Karen comments that at
least Gabby knows his name now. This angers Gabby, and she tells them it’s
none of their business. Karen wants to know more about him, but Gabby tells her
that they don’t go out, they meet at her place. He likes to be alone with her,
and she’s all he needs. As Gabby leaves to avoid further questions, Karen
decides that Caleb is married. Frank’s confused, so Karen explains that Caleb
needs her and he won’t go out in public, so he has to be married. Gabby gave up Joe
for a player. Karen’s pager goes off and she returns the page.
answers the phone, and it’s Karen. Eve was the one that paged her, and she
wants Karen to come over. Ian begs in the background, the hormonal pregnant
woman is too much for him. Karen has plans with Frank, but Eve tells her to get
over there and bring him with her. She has news for them. Karen and Frank decide
to go see what Eve and Ian want to tell them. They get in the elevator as Sam
sees Chris and goes to him. Chris is sarcastic, asking Sam if Jack is taking on
the WWF now. Her voice is frantic when she asks Chris if he’s seen Jack.
Serious, Chris asks her if she’s seen Jack. No, but she’s thinking of trying
to cut a deal with Jack. Chris advises her not to, but Sam wants to know if the
alternative is drawing a target on her back. Chris is trying to figure out
what’s wrong with Jack, but his advice to her is to steer clear of him.
tries to stop Jack, but Jack tells him to back off. Jamal tries to talk some
sense into Jack. Caleb’s not going to let Jack drive a stake into his heart.
Caleb is a full fledged vampire. Jack is a like a half vampire, he can’t go
out there and start doing all those vampire tricks. Jack decides he can if he
becomes like Caleb. As the realization crosses Jamal’s face, Jack tells him
that he has to go kill someone.
turns the cards over, showing Kevin that every time she lays the cards out, the
Stranger and Baby Boy cards always shows up in the same spots. Kevin understands
that Lucy is upset, but he has no idea what the cards mean. The Stranger card is
the potential for real evil, and the Baby Boy card is innocence personified. She
decides that she wants a reading with Madam Alicia. Kevin sarcastically remarks
that he wants to be a fly on the wall for that, but Lucy says he would only
disturb the astral balance. Kevin agrees with her. Besides, he has to be there
for Livvie anyway, and he tells Lucy that Livvie’s going to stay as long as
she needs to stay with him. Lucy asks Kevin if he really thinks Jack could be
dangerous to Livvie. That all depends on what kind of danger Lucy’s talking
about. As they discuss Livvie, Kevin decides to go check on her. After Kevin
goes upstairs, someone knocks on the door. Still holding the Stranger card, Lucy
opens the door to reveal Caleb. Her face looks like she’s almost afraid of
asks Caleb is she can help him. He asks her if he can come inside the lighthouse
and look at a map. Lucy refuses, telling him that there is a filling station
down the road. Next he wants to use the phone, and she tells him no, shutting
the door in his face. Kevin comes down as she’s walking away from the door. He
asks her who it was, and she tells him is some guy that was lost. Kevin is
surprised she didn’t invite him in for tea and offer to give him a ride. Lucy
stares at him, and says that there was something strange about him. Kevin seems
to notice how much this guy affected Lucy.
Ian, Karen and Eve are discussing the fact that Ian wants a boy. Denying it, Ian
informs them that he wants a girl. But that only confirms Eve and Karen’s
suspicions that he wants a boy. Neither of them really want to know the sex of
the baby until it’s born, but eventually Ian and Eve talk themselves into
having a sonogram. Karen knows they didn’t call her to tell her the baby
kicked, and she wants to know what the big news is. Ian and Eve exchange smiles,
and Eve flashes her ring at Karen. Frank and Karen are thrilled, and Frank asks
them how it feels to be an old married couple. Eve says that Ian’s the one
that’s old, and Ian says Eve looks old. Stills smiling, Ian wants to be the
one to tell Joe. Frank has to tell
them about Joe. Ian asks what it is about Joe that they need to know.
grabs Gabby’s arm, waking her from her nap on the sofa. His grip is painful,
and he accuses her of telling others about them. She tells him that she only
told Frank and Karen how special he makes her feel. He tells her that she is
special, and she’s going to help him. He kisses her fingers and as she leans
over to kiss him with her lips, he reminds her there is someone else. With a
look of pure hatred, Gabby says the name Livvie. Olivia, Caleb corrects her, but
Livvie is in a house, and that witch is standing guard. Without being invited,
he can’t go inside. But Gabby can go anywhere, and she’s going to help him.
Caleb is kissing her and she can’t refuse him anything. He wants her help to
tells Jack that he can’t just go kill somebody. Jack will do anything he has
to do in order to protect Livvie. Jamal asks him what good will it do if Jack
kills somebody and turns into one of those things. Jack’s reply is fight fire
with fire. Still at a complete loss, Jamal offers to get Jack more blood. But
they both know that all the blood in the world might not be enough. Jamal
continues to explain to Jack why he can’t go kill Caleb. He’s been reading
in one of the books that a vampire can't kill in the presence of someone he
loves. Caleb was going to kill Jack when Livvie came back. Livvie is the answer
for Jack. As long as he’s with Livvie, he can’t kill, and Caleb can’t kill
him. Jack refuses to use Livvie as bait. Still trying to talk some sense into
Jack, Jamal asks him who he’s going to kill. Jack admits that he hasn’t
thought much about that yet. But it will be someone who has it coming to them.
finally admits the reason she’s there. She’s thinking of leaving town. Chris
asks Sam why he would care if Sam’s leaving town. She tells him she’s broke,
and she needs money from him. He wants to know why he’d give her money to
leave town. Her answer is that he thinks Jack might hurt her, or maybe because
he hasn’t taken his eyes of her body since she got there. Smiling, Chris tells
her that they’re going for a walk.
Frank finishes telling Ian that Joe left alone. Eve is as puzzled as they are about Gabby’s behavior. Karen tells her that Gabby said her mystery man makes her feel special, and only meets her at her place. Eve comes to the same conclusion, and announces that this guy must be married. The women have to explain their reasoning to the men, who can’t believe they came to this conclusion so quickly. Frank decides that Gabby’s been bitten by the love bug. Karen mutters that she’s been bitten by something.
Lucy is cutting an apple as Kevin is on the phone. He has to leave; a man is holding his baby and wife hostage. Lucy’s doubtful that Kevin can help on three hours sleep, but Kevin shrugs and says, “Life with a nutcracker.” The phrase confuses Lucy, and he explains that “shrink” is passé. He knows she wanted to go meet with Madam Alicia, but he’d appreciate it if she’d wait for Livvie to wake. They agree that Livvie shouldn’t wake up alone.
As Kevin kisses Lucy goodbye, the doorbell rings. Gabby tells Kevin that she heard that Livvie is there, and she needs to talk to her. Kevin lets Gabby in, telling her that Lucy’s there, but he doesn’t want her to wake Livvie.
Gabby goes inside the lighthouse, Caleb is standing outside smiling.
is shocked to discover that Sam is willing to sleep with him for money to leave
town. She’s tells him that she’s never done it before, but she’s
desperate. Jack is crazy. Chris tells her that he wants to know what happened to
Jack. He orders her to meet him at the Recovery Room, where he’ll give her
some money, and walks away from her.
is still arguing with Jack. If Jack crosses over, he can’t ever be with
Livvie. If that’s what it takes to keep Caleb away from her, that’s what he
has to do. Jamal still refuses to let Jack leave, and finally Jack slams Jamal
into the wall, leaving him unconscious. As he goes out the backdoor into the
alley, he comes face to face with Sam. She tries to make small talk, and asks
him what he’s up to. He tells her that he was just talking about her, and
moves towards her.
