Summary of Season 02: Part III of III
(Episodes 2.27 - 2.37)
listened to Ronald's
reasons for suggestiong Bert
Brooke as a candidate for her empty position at Omni. Extremely
dubious, she never the less agreed to trust Ronald's judgment, and
asked him to set up a meeting between her and Brooke. Afterward,
she went to the hospital to receive her weekly injection, the only
thing between her and the blood disease that still haunts her
Railing at Jem
for his sending her to a filthy landfill, Chelsea
threatened to sue him for sexual harassment if he continued to give
her such undesirable assignments. She said that the only reason
he was doing this was to get back at her for refusing to sleep with
him again. Jem laughed the comment off, claiming he wasn't necessarily
interested in sleeping with her. He also implied that maybe she's
secretly interested in a return engagement herself, considering
their one night together was so fabulous. Chelsea denied his insinuations,
and got back at him by dumping a huge bag of garbage from the landfill
all over his desk.
Curious about Daphne's
phone call asking about Doug
White, the mystery woman up in Binghamton started digging into
a collection of photographs and notebook pages that seemed to have
a great deal of information about Doug and his mistresses. She remembered
taking a picture of Doug on a date with Ann Thomasson, a young nurse
who was found dead not long afterwards
Around town: Doug's lack of drugs made the manic doctor head straight
to the supermarket, where he was sorely tempted to get cold medicine,
which could mimic the barbiturates to which he's addicted. Fortunately,
happened upon him, and was able to convince him to walk away
cleaned herself off from the landfill, and received a phone call
who asked using her designs at C&B. Chelsea agreed to meet with
Beth the next day, and then went back to fantasizing about Greg.
Meanwhile, Olivia seemed to be doing some fantasizing of her own,
flirting with Greg as he and Rena
were trying to give her the medicine. After being her usual charming
self to Rena, Olivia found herself the butt of their warped humor
when Greg let a vindictive Rena give her the painful shot. Soon
Olivia got another dose of pain when she ran into Jonnie,
who was also at the hospital to get his own injection. They clashed,
leading to mutual threats to reveal damaging information on each
remembered his blind date earlier with Lynn Wallis, the young woman
from the Arts Center. They hit it off right away, and he was both
relieved at how well things went
and surprised at how relieved
he was. When Ross's sister Maxine
called asking about the date, he told her that he and Lynn had made
plans to attend a party in a few days. The phone call revealed the
identity of the mystery woman in Binghamton-- Maxine, a private
detective. She told Ross that she's concerned that one of her cases
led to dire circumstances
and that she's coming to Schuyler
Falls to find out the truth.
met with Martina
and Ossie Kessleman, her bookie client, to discuss the deal in which
Ossie would act as informant on the gambling operation. Marty played
hardball and made sure that the D.A. himself, Norman Mitchell, was
directly involved--not wanting a repeat of the Alex/Tristan
fiasco. However, Kessleman balked at getting involved in an undercover
operation. Frank offered to go undercover himself, but Kessleman
warned him that he's already too well-known as a cop. That's when
Frank came up with the idea of dealing with another criminal
thanking her for stopping him from giving in to temptation at the
supermarket drug aisle. He was still agitated, looking for something
to do to get him out of the house, and asked her if she would see
him for lunch. She reluctantly agreed, knowing Doug's reputation--but
also knowing that she'd promised Father Ryan, the head of their
N.A. group, that she'd give Doug a helping hand.
stopped by Jonnie's
apartment to gloat about his upcoming interview with Olivia.
He was confident that despite her suspicions, Olivia would see how
valuable an asset he would be to Omni. Jonnie wasn't so sure, considering
that she'd already suggested that she thinks Brooke was involved
in the plot to frame Tristan for murder. Brooke reminded Jonnie
that the only person who knows anything is Jonnie himself
surely Jonnie wouldn't rat on him, would he?
At a restaurant, Beth
tried to keep herself together long enough to make a good impression
during their lunch meeting. Chelsea was indeed impressed by her
work, and told a thrilled and surprised Beth that she'd bring the
idea to her boss. Everything was going swimmingly until Elaine showed
with Doug as her lunch date. When Chelsea assumed that Doug
was seeing Elaine romantically--and filled Beth in on Doug's checkered
past--Beth switched into defensive mode, expressing her anger and
disgust at her mother's hypocrisy in no uncertain terms before leaving.
Chelsea had a strange feeling of déjà vu at the scene
Concerned about his girlfriend's lack of energy, and her disinterest
in eating, Tyler
put pressure on Daphne
to dig into the truth about her father's dead mistresses. Daphne
commented that they're only teens, what could they realistically
discover? Tyler noticed his brother sitting a few feet away in the
cafeteria, and recommended they utilize Jason's
Internet skills. Daphne wasn't sure Jason could be trusted, but
Tyler remarked that Jason still felt so guilty over the whole Doug/Charles
situation, he'd never blab again. Sure enough, Jason agreed to help
research the mystery for Daphne.
Chelsea went up to Elaine, when Doug was away from the table,
and warned her that Beth was a few cards short of a deck. Elaine
grew defensive herself, and denied that there's anything wrong with
Beth other than artistic temperament. Chelsea disagreed and said
she recognizes problems when she sees them. Doug returned and attacked
Chelsea for sticking her nose into Elaine's business. He added that
it's surprising Chelsea claims that mental illness is nothing to
be ashamed about, considering her own mother's been locked away
out of sight in an institution for twenty years
Jonnie guessed that the reason Brooke's been paying his attorney
is to keep his mouth shut about Brooke's role in the scheme. Conscious
that the only thing standing between him and a conviction for conspiracy
in the plot is his high-priced lawyer, Jonnie agreed to say nothing
to Olivia. But later, Jonnie was surprised by another visitor: Frank,
who claimed that the D.A.'s office was willing to drop the charges
about his idea to have Jonnie go undercover into the gambling ring
and get incriminating information. In return for this, he explained,
the D.A. would drop Jonnie's charges in the conspiracy to frame
assault. Dubious, Jonnie admitted that he was interested, and went
with Frank to meet with the prosecutors.
went to the hospital to visit her
father, still upset from the argument with Doug
(in which he'd brought up her mother's institutionalization). Things
didn't go much better with Charles, who got defensive when she accused
him of not caring about his ex-wife's condition. Charles told her
that not only does he continue to pay for her mom's hospitalization,
he gets regular reports on her mom's status--which has never changed.
And, he added, Chelsea was in no position to judge him, since she
rarely visited her mom either. Chelsea left, hurt and guilty.
discussed the gambling investigation, and whether Jonnie and his
lawyer would accept the deal. Ross was certain of success, Alex
was contemptuous of Jonnie's attorney--a younger man with a much
fatter paycheck--and Frank was just anxious to see things move forward.
As the others were leaving Ross's office, Alex bumped into a fiery,
smartmouthed woman: Maxine,
Ross's sister. Maxine was introduced to Frank as well, and remembered
being in high school with Frank's brother and sister. After Frank
and Alex left, the brother and sister had a happy reunion.
A distracted Chelsea had her day perk up when Greg
chatted with her, and she got right to the point: we're obviously
attracted to each other, so why beat about the bush? Greg was about
to listen to her proposal when Clark
showed up. Greg left shortly afterward, as did Rena. Annoyed, Chelsea
entered the elevator with Clark and remembered what a cute couple
he and Rena had made at the gala. Hoping to get Rena away from Greg,
Chelsea tried to match Clark up with Rena--but Clark knew exactly
what she was up to. Finally Chelsea realized that she'd been trying
to set up Rena with a gay man. But her idea still seemed worthwhile
called Tristan to persuade him to accept Olivia's half-hearted offer
of her old position--or, failing that, a consultant's job. Tristan
refused to work beneath his former employees. Later, Mike
shared a romantic evening at Boondoggles, spoiled by Tristan's growing
sense of anger. Trying to deny the change in Tristan's attitude,
Martina invited Tristan to a party at Mike's family's restaurant,
but Tristan declined, knowing Mike was no friend of his. He made
no attempt to hide his resentment towards Mike for his role in his
arrest. Martina tried to get her friend to see that he was being
unfair, but Tristan remained bitter. He did reveal his plans for
revitalizing his restaurant. Marty was glad to hear him sound energized,
but was afraid that the restaurant's not a good place for him--Boondoggles
holds too many bad memories. Tristan was affected by her concern,
but harshly told her to go back to her boyfriend. Alone, he returned
to the false consolation of alcohol.
met with Ossie Kessleman, Martina's
bookie client, as part of his deal to go undercover in the gambling
ring. The two started off on the wrong foot, but after some mutual
insults, Kessleman seemed to relax and trust the younger man.
tried to get Olivia
to give him a second chance at the company from which he was fired
years ago. Olivia didn't buy his innocent 'butter-wouldn't-melt-in-my-mouth'
act, but was affected by his claims of seeing OmniCorp as his only
home. Later, they ran into Jonnie and Frank.
Brooke and Jonnie had to pretend they'd never met. Frank was unusually
protective of Olivia when Brooke ignored her request not to say
anything about the Omni situation. But Olivia grew defensive and
didn't appreciate the cop's gallantry.
was reunited with his brother Tom, an archeologist/professor who's
been in Scotland for a year. The two caught each other up on their
lovelives--Tom's not seeing anyone at the moment, to Mike's surprise--and
then turned to discussion of another Fiore brother, Victor, whose
girlfriend has been a source of family angst for nearly a year.
Tom was astonished that Vic was bringing Laurie to the party tonight,
and wondered if he might not be planning to announce a marriage.
At the bank, Jem
grew concerned when he wasn't able to withdraw any money using his
ATM card. Chelsea
witnessed this and taunted her boss about his lack of funds--and
also gave him an ultimatum, saying that she'd quit unless he started
giving her a salary. Jem then went to Ronald's
office to get more info about his inheritance from Philippa's
will, but got the bad news that the legacy wouldn't even begin to
make a dent in Jem's financial woes.
chatted with Rena
about Rena's steadfast distrust of Greg's
motives. The lawyer didn't understand why Rena wasn't willing to
give Greg a chance, since he seems to have everything. Rena dryly
commented that if being rich, handsome and smart were all that was
wanted in a mate, Martina would have ended up with Alex.
Marty asked if Rena was saying Greg is as slimy as Alex, and Rena
almost reluctantly admitted that no, deep down, Greg's a good man.
teacher, Joe Vasquez, had a Serious Talk with her about her dropping
grades. Then her friend Michelle complained that the only person
Daphne talks to these days is Tyler--and
warned her that he wouldn't stick around if Daphne remains depressed
and bitter. Later, Daphne watched as Jason
helped her research the deaths of Doug's
mistresses, and learned that the women all worked at the hospital.
She took Tyler aside and worriedly apologized for being such a downer,
but Ty assured her that he cared for her no matter what. A saddened
Jason overheard their discussion.
At the Fiores' restaurant, Clark
and Rena met up with Mike and Tom Fiore, who was introduced to Martina
as not only Mike's younger brother, but also Clark's ex-boyfriend.
who was attending the party with Lynn,
overheard this news and was obviously taken aback by the casual
showed up at Nora's
house, much to Nora's dismay. Nora's advanced pregnant state made
the detective's job more difficult, but she pressed ahead and told
Nora that she knew about the dead women--the ones whose photos Maxine
had taken while spying on Doug for Nora.
Nora panicked and acted insulted at the implication. Despite his
many affairs, Nora claimed, Doug was now changed and things were
going to improve for their family. Maxine warned her that things
weren't that simple
that sooner or later, the truth was going
to come out. Nora denied this and fled into her house
visit clearly planted a seed of fear in the disturbed woman's soul...
At the Fiores' party in their family restaurant, Tom
Fiore spoke with Clark
about their past relationship, which ended two years ago when Clark
discovered Tom's promiscuity. Tom apologized for his behavior, explaining
that he should never have tried to commit to a long-term relationship
after just accepting his sexuality. This past year in Scotland,
he'd fallen for a someone a lot like his younger self--immature
and unready to commit. The experience sobered him and made Tom realize
what a jerk he'd been to Clark. Clark, though still bitter, accepted
Tom's apology, and the two spent a lot more time together in conversation.
Meanwhile, over at the bar, Lynn
shared their dreams about their careers. Ross was impressed by Lynn's
discipline and willingness to accept unpleasant jobs in order to
attain her goal. She noted that he was less certain of his future,
and got him to reveal that his
father had discouraged his dreams as impractical. Later, when
Tom came by to chat with Lynn, Ross was clearly uncomfortable around
the other man.
In the Whites' residence, as a weeping Nora
reached for her keepsake box beneath the bed, Daphne
walked into the room. Nora claimed to be searching for an earring.
Daphne was afraid that Nora might 'discover' the box, and grew very
upset. Seeing her daughter's state, Nora suddenly asked Daphne to
stay with Uncle Greg,
not wanting Daphne to be bothered by what's going on. Daphne refused
and said she wouldn't leave Nora alone with Doug.
Nora unsuccessfully tried to get Daphne to give her father another
chance, saying that Doug may soon be all Daphne has in the world.
These words chilled Daphne to the core
Back at the party: When Mike's
arrived at the party at last, the entire Fiore family gathered in
the kitchen to greet him and his girlfriend, Laurie--a
beautiful, sophisticated redhead who, Victor announces, is now his
fiancée. The older Fiores (Carlo, Mike and Tom) were all
upset at this news, since they disapprove of Laurie's family for
some reason. Victor hotly defended his fiancée and her family.
Laurie coolly told the Fiores that she understood they only want
the best for Victor, but they're in love and there's nothing they
can do about that.
Clark and Rena
talked about this unexplained dislike that the Fiores have for Laurie,
coming to no conclusions. Clark recalled that the Fiores had been
very open-minded towards Tom and him when they were dating
since Tom never took their relationship seriously, the Fiores probably
hadn't either. Later, Martina introduced herself to Laurie and tried
to make the other woman feel at home. A bitter Laurie told Martina
that the reason behind the family's disapproval is the fact that
Laurie isn't Catholic
and added that Martina should watch out
for them, too. Martina didn't want to believe this explanation,
but Laurie's remarks obviously worried her.
Back in the kitchen, the Fiores continued to argue--and it had
nothing to do with Laurie's religion. Mike's words revealed that
he was afraid Victor was getting involved in a dangerous situation.
Victor said that the rumors surrounding the Nichols family are false,
and that he knew what he was doing. They traded insults and Victor
stormed out. Tony, the youngest brother, tried to stick up for Victor,
but Mike told him that he was as naïve as their brother. Tom
dryly commented that Mike had better be quiet, or he'd goad Tony
into doing something foolish as well.
After a Narcotics Anonymous meeting, Doug offered Elaine
a lift home. She tried to get him to express his feelings, and he
blurted that though his three month suspension was nearly up, he
was certain he'll never be let back into the hospital. And though
he hates being a doctor, he wanted his position back--because this
desire is the only thing keeping him from returning to drugs. Later,
when he returned to his house, Doug started up the stairs and was
assaulted by a burning smell of fire. He raced upstairs into the
smoke-filled hallway, calling out Nora's name to no avail...
At Cucina di Fiore, Mike
tried to understand why Martina
was acting coolly to him. Marty, with Laurie's
words ringing in her ears, asked Mike exactly why the Fiores are
so against Laurie's family. Mike revealed that it's the Nichols
family's criminal connections that are worrying him. Martina accepted
this, but asked if there wasn't a religious problem as well. Mike
said maybe just a little. Marty then demanded to know what the Fiores
think of his relationship with a Jewish woman. Mike replied that
their situation is completely different--after all, Victor
and Laurie are engaged. This did not reassure Marty
met Laurie, who was jealous of Lynn and Victor's friendship. Laurie
also took an unusual interest in Ross's career, apparently not fond
spoke about Clark's renewed friendship with Tom.
Rena warned Clark about rekindling a relationship that had caused
him such pain. Later, Tom defended himself to Rena, whose protective
feelings towards Clark didn't let her see how much he's changed.
She left Clark and Tom alone, realizing that it's not her business
that maybe her own life needs more attention.
Mike told Marty that if things were as serious between them as
they are between Vic and Laurie, his family wouldn't care--they
trust Mike's judgment more than they do Vic's. All they'd care about
is if he loves her. And Mike then made a tender admission: he does,
indeed, love Marty. This surprised her, and she had a fearful reaction
to his words. Mike was hurt, she felt guilty, and the two didn't
speak for much of the evening.
After smelling smoke coming from upstairs, Doug
rushed up to his bedroom, afraid of fire. But it was only the roaring
fire in the fireplace, where Nora
had forgotten to open the flue. (She had just finished burning the
contents of her keepsake box, destroying the evidence.) Doug mentioned
that he'd driven Elaine
home, but that they're just friends. Nora told him she didn't care
anymore--she couldn't stand what her love for him had made her become.
She's done too many terrible things because she cared. Doug didn't
understand what she meant and said they'd discuss this tomorrow.
Nora added to herself that there isn't always a tomorrow
guilt of her murderous past became too much for her, and she confessed
to a priest. Little did she realize that the man to whom she'd told
all was Doug's
N.A. counselor, Father Ryan O'Connor.
Working undercover in Ossie Kessleman's hardware store, Jonnie
was able to offer vintage car repair advice to Kessleman's contact
in the gambling ring, Dean. Dean didn't trust Jonnie at first, especially
when he recognized him as having dealings with the cops, but tentatively
offered Jonnie a job fixing his car. Later, Kessleman warned Jonnie
that this was only the first of many tests...
Determined to take her life in her hands, Rena
to lunch. Surprised by the shy nurse's invitation, Greg was pleased
learned that the D.A. had dropped charges against Jonnie. When Marty
revealed that she'd known about the D.A.'s deal with Jonnie--and
hadn't warned Tristan--Tris felt betrayed by his friend and attorney.
They argued about this, and about her relationship with Mike,
which Tristan has resented for some time. In the end, he walked
out on her, in effect telling her to stop wasting her time on their
While fighting with Jem
over her salary, Chelsea
flashed back to their passionate night together. She forced herself
to focus on Greg, the man she truly desires. When she and Jem noticed
Rena running some errands, Jem--aware of her dislike of Rena--mischievously
said that he found Rena pretty cute. This put a new idea into Chelsea's
Upset about her fight with Tris, Marty apologized to Mike for
her cool reaction the night before. She told him that she was afraid
to trust anyone after the botched deal with Alex,
but now she realizes that she can't push people away, like Tris
is doing. And at last, she told Mike that she loved him, too.
and Doug began to argue about Doug's treatment of Nora. Afraid and
angry, Daphne couldn't contain her suspicions, and accused her father
of murdering his mistresses. When Nora overheard this argument,
she was devastated at the torture she's been putting her family
through. She secretly went to call Richard
Cahill--her former lover and the chief of police.
Though haunted by memories of her delicious night of lust with

attention away from Rena.
In a bizarre scheme, she asked Jem if he'd agree to seduce Rena.
Jem couldn't believe she was serious--but he was quick to agree
when Chelsea offered to sleep with him in return.
was amused by her brother's leisurely arrival at brunch. Obviously
he'd had a late night at the Fiores' party. Clark
noticed that she was in an unusually good mood, and was thrilled
when Beth announced that she'd gotten an offer from the C&B
department store for her designs.
Later, Clark told her about seeing Tom
at the party. Concerned that he's falling for a man who hurt him,
Beth warned Clark not to move too fast. Clark said he believed that
Tom had changed--besides, they're just going to be friends. But
Beth didn't believe him--and also discovered that Tom was someone
she remembered from high school.
embraced in the police interview room, glowing with love for each
other after Marty finally responded in kind to Mike's declaration
of love. Throwing caution to the wind, she even asked Mike if he
wanted to live with her. Mike was shocked and thoroughly delighted,
and they prepared to take their relationship a large step forward.
Also at the police station, Maxine
to learn more about the Thomassen and Traub cases. Frank wondered
why Max was interested in cases from so many years ago, and they
nearly clashed in anger when she refused to tell him any details.
Cahill interrupted their discussion, ordering Maxine out of
the office. Cahill explained that he was going to make an arrest
that had to be kept very quiet--no reporters, no visitors anywhere
near the station. Maxine--who was eavesdropping--felt her heart
sink when she guessed whom Cahill was going to arrest.
A nearly hysterical Daphne
of killing two of his mistresses. Doug was astounded and denied
his involvement in their deaths. Nora
entered the room and in an eerie calm, apologized profusely for
having ruined Daphne's life, just as she'd ruined her own. She tried
to explain how she'd tried to keep her marriage together despite
Doug's distance, and how she'd defended that marriage against the
women who tempted her husband.
Slowly Daphne began to realize the truth, but Doug was still in
denial. Nora hoped he'd stand by Daphne, because their daughter
would need his help. She then told him about hiring a detective
to follow him, and keeping the pictures in the keepsake box.
Doug tried desperately to get Nora to explain what she was talking
about, but the doorbell rang. Nora opened the door to a grim-faced
Richard Cahill, whom she'd called only a half-hour earlier. And
to Doug's utter astonishment, and Daphne's misery, Nora confessed

a member of the crime syndicate. Dean decided to appease Nicky,
his own boss, by getting Jonnie to work for him. But first he planned
to give Jonnie another, more demanding test
her old position at OmniCorp. Bert flirted with her until Frank
showed up. When alone with Livvy, Frank told her that Nora
had confessed to poisoning her. Olivia, skeptical at first, became
shaken and distressed at the knowledge that not one, but two
people had wanted her dead.
Bert was also upset when he learned of his sister's arrest, but
reacted with typical shrewdness by asking hotshot attorney Steve
Gelfarb to help out. Steve convinced Doug
and Nora to hire him. Numb with guilt, Nora said she wanted to be
punished. But Steve urged her not to make the prosecutors'
jobs easy for them--she should plead 'not guilty.'
met with his boss, the DA, and Alex.
He was suspicious that Alex had manipulated his way into this trial--just
as he'd gotten Ross taken off the Campbell
case. But DA Mitchell relieved him of his doubts: Ross would be
first chair in the trial--and Alex will assist him.
told Tony and Carlo about moving in with Martina.
His brother was thrilled, but Carlo showed less pleasure at the
news. He reminded Mike that Marty's backed away from their relationship
before--what's to stop her this time?
At Boondoggles, Tristan
told Rena of
his plans to revamp his restaurant into something that won't remind
him of the tragic past. Rena expressed concern that he was making
a mistake, and Tristan blasted her for being as judgmental as Marty.
Rena asked if he was upset with Marty for moving in with Mike--which
was news to a shocked Tristan.
heard about the strange activities at the police station. She asked
if she could check things out. Distracted by thoughts of his deal
Jem didn't think Elaine was up to any kind of reporting job. She
was annoyed, remembering that he'd also refused to let her interview
Rena. This gave him an idea
called Rena to tell her about Nora's arrest, and asked her to meet
him at the court house. Disgusted that the police had probably made
yet another mistake, Tristan went with Rena, feeling he owed it
to help a family friend.
Jem appeared at Chelsea's, telling her that he'd come up with
an idea to meet Rena and get closer to her. This means it's time
for Chelsea to fulfill her part of their twisted bargain. She reluctantly
agreed--but Jem got a call about Nora, which prevented their getting
any further than a kiss. Jem left, and Chelsea was oddly disappointed.
At the courthouse, Daphne
refused to talk to Doug. Rena tried to get her to open up, but she
just walked away. Doug also resented Greg's support, wondering where
his brother had been for the past few months. Nora was ready to
plead not guilty, just as Steve asked her--until she saw Tristan,
the son of the woman she'd murdered.

advice, a shaken Olivia
insisted on heading down to the courthouse to see Nora's arraignment
for attempted murder. Meanwhile, Nora
agreed to plead 'not guilty' to the two murders, not wanting to
life any further. But once she got inside the courtroom, her guilty
conscience weighed too heavily, especially when she found herself
looking at Tristan.
In an emotional outburst, she admitted to everything--including
the murder of Philippa

but Clark's attitude towards him seemed to have changed. Clark's
coolness was obvious, and Tom suspected that someone had warned
Clark off Tom. Tom was not surprised to learn that Beth
was behind this. Later, Beth knew Clark was upset despite his claims
otherwise, and wondered why--if Clark didn't want to see Tom--he
insisted on going to places where he knew he'd run into his former

Frank recommended that she take time away from Schuyler Falls. Olivia
agreed, and to his surprise, invited herself along with him to his
who warned him that he'd be closely watched by both Dean
and the police, neither of whom trust him. That evening, Jonnie
was awakened by a knock on his door. Two cops burst in and demanded
to know what he was doing in Dean's limo. Jonnie refused to respond,
and they began viciously beating him.
Though Nora's hearing was kept secret, Elaine
snuck in to take notes. She was shocked to learn that Doug's
wife was involved in such crimes. Elaine called Jem
to tell him that his cousin Philippa had been murdered, but Jem
was more interested in getting a terrific story. By the end of the
night, he returned to Chelsea's
apartment. Chelsea agreed to fulfill her part of their bargain,
and their passion overwhelmed them.
rushed to Tristan's side when Rena
called her to tell her about Philippa's murder. Tristan was numb
at learning his mother's best friend had killed her, and slowly
bitterness took over. He refused Martina's offer of friendship,
especially when he learned Mike
was moving in with her. Alex
was also interested to learn this bit of information.
Mike went to his new home with Martina, and consoled her about

rather than jail. Before being led away to the County Jail, where
she'll await sentencing, Nora said goodbye to Bert
and a devastated Daphne. Doug, however, refused to see her. He left
the courthouse and went straight to a pharmacy, where he picked
up some sleeping pills.
Meanwhile, Daphne ran off alone. And Nora, in her prison cell,
suddenly found herself in labor.
