Bianca and Lena are helping Boyd move into, of all places, Myrtle's boarding house. The two of them are trying to negotiate the stairs with a large box (way too large for the two of them!); just as he tells them not to drop it, naturally they do, and we hear glass breaking. Lena apologizes, and Bianca asks what that smell is? "My lab equipment is in -- well, was in there," Boyd tells her. Surprised, Lena asks if he has a lab in his apartment? Myrtle comes in, obviously disconcerted by the sight of the boxes. She tells Boyd she doesn't like her boarders to muddle up the house, and he assures her that he's going to rent space from an independent lab. Myrtle's glad to hear it, and asks what she smells? Boyd admits that some of his chemicals may have spilled; she worries about her floor and wonders, "What have I let myself in for?" Boyd swears she's not going to regret renting him a room; Bianca and Lena chime in that he's very responsible and helpful. Myrtle notes that he's also very handsome, and takes her new boarder off to sign the rent book. Bianca and Lena bend down to see if the box is leaking, and share a moment of close eye contact before Myrtle and Boyd return. Bianca welcomes her new neighbor, who takes the box upstairs to see what he can salvage while Lena goes to the car for some small boxes. Alone with Bianca, Myrtle comments that he's a nice boy. When Bianca agrees and says she's going to enjoy having him around, Myrtle wonders if she's going to see a lot of that nice young girl? Bianca tells her that Lena isn't Boyd's girlfriend or anything like that, if that's what she means. "Is she yours?" Myrtle asks. Bianca says no, that Lena is not her girlfriend, either, and the canny old carny gal asks, "Do you want her to be?" Bianca says that right now, they're all just friends. Lena comes in with a heavy box, and Bianca goes out to get more from the car. Boyd comes back downstairs and helps Lena with the box and they, too, wind up face to face. Boyd leans in to kiss her, but Lena deftly backs away, saying the box might fall. Boyd wants to ask one question, "Which team are you on?" Before she can answer (or not!), her phone rings, and Lena says it might be Erica. Boyd deals with the box while she answers. Rather than Erica, it's Michael, who asks, "Lena, darling, are you able to talk?" She watches Boyd as she says yes, and Michael tells her, "Very nice work." He says that reporter Steele was just here, and her counterleak to the Wall Street Herald worked, "Looks like they've swallowed the bait." Lena smiles as she agrees, "They certainly have." When Michael says it's time to start reeling them in, Lena assures him he can count on her. Michael hangs up and places a call to Erica.

Alone again with Lena, Boyd says she never answered his question, "Which is it? Are you straight or gay?" Lena questions if he asks because he's interested in her? Boyd tells her maybe, and because she seems interested in Bianca. Lena agrees that she is; she likes Bianca very much. "So you are gay?" he asks, and Lena smiles as she tells him, "I am friendly." Boyd laughs and asks if that's supposed to be his answer? When she leans in for a kiss before playfully pulling away, Boyd asks what kind of game she's playing? Lena only says that he has so many questions, and she has to go. Boyd thanks her for helping, and Lena tells Bianca she'll see her later. She leaves, and Bianca asks, "Well, Boyd, what did I miss?" He asks what makes her think she missed anything, and Bianca says she was gone for two seconds and now he's got this mysterious, glazed-over look on his face. Boyd only says that she is so going to lose their little bet, "Trust me, Binks, you're going to owe me one heck of a dinner."

Previously on All My Children
Greasy was positive that Sydney Bergeron was Greenlee’s emailer.
Maggie tracked down Henry to a Chinese restaurant.
Chris progressed to become an even bigger *sshole (Who knew that was possible?)
Michael was boinking Lena unbeknownst to Kendall...

Bianca and Lena carry a large box into Myrtle’s, followed by Boyd with a smaller box. There’s bickering about how the girls are going to go about getting that box up the stairs and they lose their grip on it. Glass is heard crashing inside the box as it hits the ground...

Boyd’s lab equipment was in that box. It’s pretty much just shards now and mixed-up chemicals that are starting to smell foul. Myrtle arrives and gets lecture-y about the mess. She says that she doesn’t even like anyone to mess up the kitchen unless she okays the menu. That sounds a little dictatorial. Why would anyone want to live there? She takes Boyd off to finish off the rent forms.

Lena and Bianca inspect the box to make sure nothing is leaking. Awkward Moments are shared as they end their inspection with their faces kind of close. Boyd takes the box upstairs and Lena goes to bring in more boxes. Myrtle asks Bianca if Lena is Boyd’s girlfriend. She says no and Myrtle asks if Lena is HER girlfriend. Bianca just smiles...

Bianca says that Lena isn’t her girlfriend either. Lena returns loaded down with crap. Bianca goes to get more and Boyd races down the stairs to give Lena a hand. More Awkward Moments occur when their faces get all close. He asks her which “team” she’s on, but she’s saved by the bell. Her cell phone rings. The screen splits three ways as Lena takes a call from The ***hat while Boyd cluelessly arranges his belongings across the room. ***hat compliments her on the story she leaked to the press. The ***hat makes another call. This one is to Erica...

Boyd doesn’t let Lena dodge his question. He asks her point-blank whether she’s straight or gay. Lena merely says she’s “friendly.” She kisses Boyd then suddenly jerks away. He gets a little annoyed that she seems to be playing games. Lena leaves and Bianca returns. She notices Boyd’s change in demeanor...

Boyd claims that Bianca is going to lose her bet. Kendall and Smoan’s chattering arrival interrupts them. Small talk about Boyd moving in is exchanged. Smoan and Bianca go upstairs leaving Kendall and Boyd alone...





LENAVERSE



After seeing Hendrickson's Lowe's commercial, Sosnovska tries to get a toothpaste gig


Lena's not gay, she's just "friendly"


Myrtle figures out there's some chemistry between Bianca and Lena

Lena - the mystery woman:
Boyd: So, you never answered my question. Which is it? Are you straight or gay?
Lena: Do you ask because you're interested in me?
Boyd: Maybe, and because you seem interested in Bianca.
Lena: I am. I like Bianca very much.
Boyd: So you are gay.
Lena: I am friendly.
Boyd: Is that supposed to be my answer? What kind of game are you playing?
[Lena kisses Boyd]
Lena: You have so many questions, and I have to go. Can you and Bianca do without me?
Boyd: I think we'll struggle through, yeah. Thanks for helping.

And she sure is playing Boyd too.

Lena: You have a lab in your apartment?
Myrtle: Hi. I -- oh, my, my, my. Oh, what a muddle. Oh, sweetheart. Listen, darling, I don't like my boarders to muddle up the house. I mean, not even the kitchen, unless I have Ok’d the menu.
Boyd: Oh, no, no, no, Mrs. Fargate, I learned my lesson. Believe me, I'm going to rent space from an independent lab, I promise.

Bianca: And my new neighbor. Congratulations, Boyd.

Bianca: Good idea.
Myrtle: Bianca.
Bianca: Hmm?
Myrtle: He's a nice boy, that Boyd, isn't he?

Myrtle: That's the best way.
Bianca: All right. I'm going to make another trip.
Myrtle: I'm going to the kitchen.
Bianca: Ok.

Lena: You can count on me.
Michael: Michael Cambias for Erica Kane, please.
