Pocket Change and Paper Hearts
Silas and Sam have been hanging in with a united resolve all evening – playing Greek chorus/peanut gallery to near perfection. The evening hadn’t started out auspiciously, with their initial, divergent gut reactions to the artwork. Then Ava started spilling Derek’s beans, inaugurating the real displays of the evening – and Silas was for all the world goosing Sam, saying, “Get the beer! The show is about to start!”
Of course it was a careening slide from there, punctuated by catfights, BLT’s, and mercifully flowing whiskeys. Dizzy from the carousel of revelations, the two grab some time alone to commiserate over the story so far and share a quiet, intimate moment before the next wave starts. Which it does, and on several fronts. When it’s all over, both are reeling from the implications and revelations. Sam and Silas run home to make sure Danny is safe, find they are alone again…and maybe this date isn’t going to end the way it looked like it started.
When Sonny, beside himself with grief and rage at Morgan’s deception, confronts his son in front of the entire town, it’s too much for the conflicted, embattled, and bitter younger son, who runs from the family conflagration – as his older brother chases after him.
The two have finally reached the point where things either have to come to a head or break – or both, and it is a violent, furious, and dangerous clash from which neither will emerge unscathed or unchanged. Michael ends up in dire, life-threatening circumstance as his mother happens along to find him. Sonny, worn out, heartsick, and taken to pieces from what he’s learned, turns to Olivia when the shouting stops.
All in a Family
Baby Connie is, sadly, becoming the rope and the prize in the single-minded tug of war between two mothers. Maxie, Lulu, and their respective clans – Felicia, Dante, Spinelli, and their lawyers -- gather at the courthouse for the custody fight, and the gloves were never on. Witnesses are called to give evidence in heartbreaking ways – including Maxie herself, who is forced to relive and re-tell some of her most painful experiences to the entire room. Her evisceration only fuels her rage, however. She knows where the secrets of her adversary lie buried – and she tells Diane to fire back in equal measure at Lulu.
Wracked with despair, indecision, and grief, Spinelli is probably as much in the middle as his infant daughter, and is truly at a loss for what the right thing is to do. He confesses to Ellie that Diane suggested a radical solution to him – but is it the right way to go?
Strong Enough To Break
That blood sample Ellie took from Luke is what Robin is itching to have, determined to whip up a savory antidote for her salty Australian nemesis so that she can step back into her old shoes again. She makes a beeline for her old lab, and is shaken by the onslaught of memories from the last time she was there – that time when she ‘died’, everything she loved was ripped and torn and left for debris, and she mourned a life that moved without her.
Sabrina catches up to Patrick just as he is on the way to the very same lab, and the two happily discuss their wedding plans – both having told Emma they’re getting hitched next week. Felix is already in an ecstasy of tulle, lace, and embroidered angels as he brings upon Sabrina enough white dresses to cover Kilimanjaro.
This does not make Carlos happy, and he again darkens the Drake door to plead his case with an exasperated Sabrina, with little success. Undaunted, he stakes out the hub—but instead of Sabrina, he runs into someone else.
Also Next Week: Carly tries to make Franco realize her feelings aren’t about pity, while the despondent artist receives an ominous delivery. Scott frets about the scandal knocking him off the DA running before he even starts the job. Robert and Anna cook up an escape plan. Britt gives Nik support, while Felix and Brad get closer, and Olivia tries to let Sonny of the hook easy.
