SYNOPSIS

Uncle Jack is mean to Lena after she demands to know why he allowed Cambias to go free and what he's going to do about it; Lena tells Jack that she loves Bianca; Lena admits that it might be over between her and Bianca, but that does not mean she can't make Mikey's life worse; Lena gets herself some garden insect poison and a huge gun; Mikey has a visitor...is it Lena or is it the Grim Reaper?

Jack and Lena agree that they can't live knowing Michael is free to hurt Bianca again. Lena is seen with a box of garden poison and a gun.

Jack is still contemplating the gun in his hands when someone knocks at the door. He quickly (and ineffectively) hides the gun under some papers as Lena comes through the door and insists that he has to do something right now! She wants to know what he’s going to do about Michael Cambias, and she wants the truth! Jack moves to cover the gun as he tells her he’s trying to determine his next move, and agrees he can reopen the case with new evidence. Told he’s working on that, Lena demands to know if it will be enough to put Michael away for good? When he assures her he will do everything he can to make sure Michael goes away for a long time, Lena thinks he should have done that at the hearing! Jack argues it was the law that let him walk away, but Lena doesn’t care about the law—only about Bianca! Jack agrees that he does, too. Lena worries that it’s enough Bianca has to live with Cambias in her worst memories, and now she has to look at him in the streets—she’s been through enough, and she doesn’t want her to have to be afraid anymore. Jack feels the same way, and Lena tells him to do something! She asks Jack to swear that he’ll get Michael before he hurts Bianca again, but Jack asks, “Swear to you? The woman who did Cambias’ dirty work when he first hit town, the woman who lied to my niece, who seduced my niece—for him? I should swear to a woman that actually slept with that son of a bitch?”

Jack apologizes, saying that was uncalled for, but Lena admits it’s true that she took advantage of Bianca’s trust when she came to Pine Valley. Jack agrees that was true in the beginning, but he knows she loves Bianca, and that Bianca loves her. Lena says what happened in the past will haunt her the rest of her life. She slept with Cambias and knew him better than anyone—she should have known what he was capable of! Jack agrees there are plenty of “if onlys” going around, and they should focus on letting Bianca know how much they love her. When Lena thinks the best way she can do that is to stay away from her, Jack asks if she’s giving up? Lena insists she isn’t! She loves Bianca, and would give up her own life… “To make sure that she was safe for the rest of hers,” Jack finishes, “I know, believe me.” Lena thinks she may have to accept it’s over with Bianca, but she can’t accept that he’s out there to torment her, maybe even to hurt her again. Jack agrees, “Neither can I, Lena—neither can I.”...

Lena looks at a box of insect poison and reads aloud, “Could cause death.” She takes a gun from her purse and adds, “So could this.”...

Michael gets ready to leave and picks up his briefcase as someone knocks at the door. He opens it and says this is a surprise, “Come on in.”

ALL GAY RE-CAP

This all gay recap is by C.K..
Read all the All Gay Re-caps at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/TheAllGayRecap/.

Coming whenever C.K. sends it to me. I am looking so forward to it. A day without CK's recap is like a day without sunshine. I need my vitamin E, you know. We all do. Yes, I must contain my anticipation. But it's sooo hard.



PARODY

This parody is by LizzieT.

Mary had disturbing news for Greenlee.
Mary: Jack knew all along that he was your father.
Greenlee: I don't believe you.
Mary: It's true. I told him I was pregnant and when he wouldn't answer my phone calls I married Roger to give you a rich father.
Greenlee: Wasn't the back story that Roger married you because you were rich and he wasn't?
Mary: Don't confuse me with details.
Greenlee: But Jack looked so surprised when I told him I was his daughter.
Mary: He's a politician Greenlee. Looking surprised when he's confronted with the truth is part of his job.
Greenlee: He broke up with Erica because she kept the truth from him.
Mary: Look at their track record. He breaks up with her every couple of years. They were due for another breakup. Now who are you going to believe - the mother who neglected you and lied to you your whole life or the man who's been nothing but good to you since you trashed his wedding and announced you were his daughter?

Simone and Mia were trying to find Kendall.
Mia: She's not in the elevator or on the stairs.
Simone: She's not in the bathroom or the broom closet either. We really need to clean out the broom closet though. Jake's shorts are still in there.
Mia: What are we going to do?
Simone: We could call all the bars in town.
Mia: To see if Kendall went there?
Simone: No, to see if they deliver. I need a drink.
Mia: Aidan won't be happy if he finds out that we let Kendall get away. I hope he doesn't call to see where she is. ::::ring ring:::Hello?
Aidan: Ello, can I please speak to Kendall?
Mia: Er....uh....welll...
Simone: Let me have the phone. Aidan, do you want to hear some more about our sexiest man contest? We're down to the last group of finalist.
Aidan: :::zzzzzz:::
Simone: There, he'll be asleep for a while. Everyone dozes off when we start in on our contest. Now let's think. If you were Kendall where would you be?
Mia: I'd be here. I don't have anywhere else to go.
Simone: Then Kendall must be here . We just have to look harder. I'll check in the file cabinet and you look in the copy machine.

In Vegas, Alexander wasn't doing to well.
Alexander: I'm dying Ryan.
Ryan: Don't say that. You have so much to live for.
Alexander: I'm responsible for bringing Michael into this world.
Ryan: So do you want me to smother you or just wait for your heart to stop on it's own?
Alexander: The one thing that makes me happy is knowing my son will join me in hell soon.
Ryan: You know, you guys sort of make my family look like The Brady Bunch.

Aidan was down at the docks.
Aidan: Oi wonder where me mite the Falcon is? He's lite. Oi'll give im a call. Ello Falcon, where are yew? Picadilly! Blimey! Oi think Oi've been ad.
Opal: Help! Help!
Aidan: Oi'll sive yew Opal. Oi'll beat up these blokes with no trouble at all. Whot are yew dewing down ere?
Opal: Nothing.
Bloke: She was trying to buy drugs but she didn't want to pay top dollar for it.
Officer Sean: Buying drugs Mrs. Courtland? You'll have to come down to the station and talk to the chief.
Anna: Opal, what's this I hear about you buying drugs?
Opal: It's simple. I was just doing what my love bug Palmer and I did years ago during the Will Courtland storyline. He needed to be arrested so we bought drugs and planted them on him. Don't you remember?
Anna: Sorry. I wasn't watching back then. So who were you planning to plant these drugs on?
Opal: Michael Cambias - who else?
Anna: Oh yes - sorry. I've been a bit distracted what with cleaning out my dressing room and all. Opal, you must let the law deal with Michael Cambias. The citizens of Pine Valley simply cannot take the law into their own hands.

Out in Vegas -
Alexander: I'm dying Ryan. Dont deny me my last request.
Ryan: I won't. I promise.
Lizzie: So Ryan is going to be the killer. I knew it all along.

Meanwhile, around Pine Valley -
David: Erica, you don't have to do this.
Erica: Oh yes I do. And I'll enjoy it.
Lizzie: So Erica's going to be the murderer. I knew it all along.

Reggie: Sleep tight Bianca. I bought a gun on the streets and I know how to use it.
Lizzie: So Reggie's going to be the murderer. I knew it all along.

Lena: Rat poison or a bullet? Decisions, decisions.
Lizzie: So Lena's going to be the murderer. I knew it all along.

Jack: I've stared at this gun long enough. I know what I have to do.
Greenlee: I need to talk to you.
Jack: Not now. Come see me on visitor's day.
Greenlee: Huh?
Lizzie: So Jack's going to be the killer. I knew it all along.

Simone: I still can't find Kendall.
Mia: I hope she doesn't do anything dangerous.
Lizzie: So Kendall's going to be the killer. I knew it all along.
Boyd: Where is Kendall? I just came to tell her that I would take care of everything.
Lizzie: So Boyd's going to be the killer. I knew it all along.

Mysterious hands wearing gloves: :::steal gun and bullets from safe::::
Lizzie: So Mysterious hands are going to be the killer. I knew it all along.

Michael: Oh, a knock at the door. I never have visitors. I wonder who it could be. Oh, so it's you. What do you want?
Lizzie: Hmm, he's looking down like the person at the door is shorter than he is. That's it - Maddie's going to be the killer. I knew it all along.



LENAVERSE

QUOTES

Lena: Then do something, for god's sake. Swear to me that you'll get michael before he hurts bianca again.
Jack: Swear to you? Swear to you? The woman who did cambias' dirty work when he first hit town? Who lied to my niece, who seduced my niece for him? I should swear to a woman who actually slept with that son of a b****?

Lena: It seems the best way for me to show her I love her is to stay away from her. I've caused her enough anguish.
Jack: You're not giving up?
Lena: No, I'm not giving up. I never stopped loving Bianca. I -- Jackson, I'd do anything. I'd give up my own life if I --
