Port Charles Update Monday 3/25/02
Lucy is showing Kevin and Paige the scroll. While Lucy is bragging that she was right about Paige, Kevin reads the chart and tells Paige that she is related to the Barringtons in PC. Paige is shocked.
Ali is still showing off Rebecca to Rafe, who is still shocked at the resemblance to Paige. Ali thinks his shock is at the painting itself, but eventually Ali guesses that he knows Rebecca.
Amy steps out of the shower, still invisible, while a stunned Ian watches. When she reappears, he calls her name. Screaming, she turns to him and accuses him of spying. He denies the accusations and demands the truth from her. Reaching across the counter, she grabs a hairdryer and swings it at Ian. When she hits him in the head, he falls, and she runs.
Lucy is confused about why Paige isnít excited about having family. Paige explains that the name Barrington doesnít ring any bells. Lucy explains that the portrait of Rebecca should be in the hallway and thatís the missing piece. Ali is her cousin. Paige still wonít accept it. Her family is dead and Lucyís Tarot cards canít change it. Kevin asks her why sheís so upset. Paige has been wrong about so many things that sheís afraid to get her hopes up. Lucy points out that she was headed in the right direction when she came to PC. It wasnít her past with Kevin, but the portrait led them to the truth.
Ali thinks Rafeís silence is getting weird. She guesses that he knows Rebecca. Rafe tries to convince her that he was just admiring the portrait. Itís like meeting someone for the first time that heís heard so much about. Ali believes him and goes on to talk about Rebecca. Her family never really talked about her, and when they did, it was in a whisper, like they didnít want anyone to hear. Ali asked her grandfather about her once, but he answered that some things are better left not known. It never made sense to Ali, Rebecca was a candle maker who died in the 1800ís. When Ali goes to get food for them and leaves him with the portrait, Rafe approaches it. Rebecca Smith Barrington clinches it for Rafe. Paigeís last name is Smith, and it canít be a good connection. He remembers arguing with the angels in the park about them not being worried about who is the 5th chair because they already knew. He also remembers the dream he had about Aliís name being in the book of records. Rafe convinces himself that Paige wants to take Ali back with her.
Amy runs and falls, giving Ian a chance to catch her. He wants answers and heíll hold her and keep asking until she gives them. He knows that sheís not in the Witness Protection Program, and Ed died 30 years ago. He also knows that she didnít just vanish in the alley, but the picture was her. Finally Amy admits that sheís dead.
Excited, Paige wants to know everything about Ali. Kevin and Lucy tell her that Ali is a great girl and Livvieís best friend. Paige is afraid that she wonít get a chance to meet her, but Lucy advises her to trust in the universe. She happens to know that Ali is at her old house with Rafe, and theyíre sickeningly in love with each other. Paige is surprised to hear that Ali is the woman that Rafe has been crazy about. Stunned, Lucy demands to know how Paige knows her cousin Rafe. Paige tries to tell her that sheís confusing him with someone else. Lucy doesnít buy that, and Kevin wants to know why itís so important. Lucy knows all of Rafeís friends, and Paige isnít on the list.
Rafe wants to know why Paige didnít say anything about her connection to the Barringtonís, and heís furious that she hid it. There had to be a reason Paige didnít want him to know. He remembers his dream and realizes that it was a warning. In a panic, Rafe informs the portrait that Paige canít have Ali. Ali hears him yelling at the portrait and he tries to tell her he was just telling Rebecca how great Ali is. Rafe tells Ali that Rebecca thinks itís late and they should go. Ali wants to show him the grounds, but he wants to leave immediately. When she begs him to stay for a few minutes, he snaps at her.
Ian is trying to digest everything Amy is telling him about her second chance and only having 13 weeks to tie up loose ends. Finally he gets that sheís an angel. Amy continues and tells Ian that she and Paige came to Earth with the bright light to finish their journeys. She couldnít tell him before, and if she could would he have believed her? He does now.
Ali wants to know whatís going on, and Rafe insists nothing. He was talking to the picture, but Rafe is too intent on getting Ali out of there to discuss it. When Ali begins to get alarmed, Rafe admits to her that he wants her all to himself and he doesnít want to share her. She wants to go home, but heís afraid to go back to Lucyís. His idea is for the two of them to run away together and disappear. Ali agrees, and says goodbye to Rebecca. She asks the portrait if it remembers her being there. Ali was lonely then, but now she has her own love. After Ali leaves Rafe informs the portrait that no one is going to hurt Ali.
Paige tries to tell Lucy that she met Rafe in a restaurant, and she heard him talking about how much he loved a girl. Lucy doesnít look convinced, and Kevin asks her again why it matters. Paige changes the subject goes to arrange their return to PC. After she's gone, Kevin forces Lucy to tell him why how Paige knew Rafe is so important. Lucy wants to be happy for helping Paige, but she has a feeling there is more going on. Lucy is afraid that by arranging a meeting they're stirring up more trouble.
Ian is still in shock, but he asks who Ed really is. Amy tells him that Ed is their supervisor and he keeps track of them. Softly, Amy admits to Ian that she's hated living a lie, but at least she was living. Part of why she came back really was to prove she could do anything, but a bigger part of it was to experience love. Having never really been in love before, Amy came back to find out what it was really like. But she blew her last chance by falling for a married man. Ian has no idea what to say other then he's sorry she wasted her time on him. Amy has three days left, and she asks Ian to spend them with her. It will be their secret and no one will get hurt.
Casey tells Ricky that she loves him and they kiss.
Amy begs Ian to make love to her. He's never made love to an angel.
