SYNOPSIS

As Bianca starts listing why she'd be a top suspect to Michael's murder, Lena tells Bianca to shut up. Bianca tells Lena she won't stand by while everyone she cares about is harassed because of Michael's murder. Lena tells Bianca that whoever killed Michael doesn't feel bad about it because they did a service. Lena tells Bianca that prison would be a reward, not punishment for doing the deed. She then tells Maggie to take good care of Bianca and walks out. Lena shows up at Michael's condo. Kendall asks her if she's alright and Lena says, "How can I ever be alright knowing what I did in that man's home." Bianca asks Maggie if she saw Lena at Michael's condo on the night of his disappearance and Magie says no. Maggie then gives Bianca a gift of a baby book. Kendall asks Lena what she did, and Lena says she was Michael's whore yadda yadda. Lena tells kendall she came to drop off some papers. She gives Kendall the papers and leave.

Lena tries to convince Bianca not to make herself a suspect in Michael's murder. Lena voices her belief that Michael's murderer feels no remorse for killing such an evil man.

From About All My Children
http://allmychildren.about.com/cs/recaps/a/bl20031028r.htm

Bianca says she had plenty of motive to kill Michael Cambias, "So add me to your list of suspects!" Maggie asks what she's doing, but Bianca tells her to think about it! She's the one Michael Cambias raped, the reason he went to court, and the reason this whole thing happened. Lena tells her not to say that, but Bianca asks why not? Aidan needs as many suspects as possible, that creating reasonable doubt is the best way to save Kendall, and she is a viable suspect! Maggie says she was his victim, but Bianca declares that maybe she got tired of being his victim! Maybe she just went numb listening to Michael gloat after the judge set him free, and maybe she even told him she wanted him dead, "Maybe I told him if I had a gun right then and there, I would have shot him, not just once, but over and over and over!" She's stunned when Lena shouts, "Bianca, shut up-now!" If the police heard her talking like this, they'd never leave her alone, and she's been through enough because of Michael! Maggie agrees with Lena, adding that she should be taking care of herself right now. Bianca asks if she's supposed to pretend this investigation isn't happening? Aidan just thinks she should distance herself from it, but Bianca asks how she can do that when her mother, her sister and Lena have all been interrogated by the police? She doesn't want any of them to go to jail for a crime that was committed to protect her! She's sorry, but she can't just stand by and watch the people she cares about the most sacrifice everything for her! Aidan asks why she would put herself through this when there are so many people that love her and are willing to take it on for her? For now, she should let them, and reclaim her life, the one she had before Cambias came along. Bianca sighs she barely remembers who that person was. Aidan insists they do, and that's why they are all willing to do this for her, "Find that sweet person again, and you'll give back what Michael stole from all of us-hope!" He kisses her forehead and leaves. Lena knows she feels responsible for whoever took out Michael Cambias, but she shouldn't. He took pleasure in torturing her and so many other people, and whoever stopped him doesn't feel they've done anything wrong. Bianca asks how she can say that? Lena tells her it wasn't murder, it was a privilege, and going to prison won't be a punishment, it will be a reward! Lena recalls that night, and dropping the gun into the water. She says she's sorry, but she has to go. Telling Maggie to take good care of her, Lena leaves.

Bianca admits she's thinking about what Lena said about whoever killed Michael Cambias not being sorry for what they did. Maggie agrees she's not sorry he's dead. Bianca knows Maggie saw something that night, and asks if it was Lena? Maggie swears it wasn't...

Kendall sees Lena in the courtyard and asks if she's all right? "How can I ever be all right, knowing what I did in that man's home?" Lena wonders. Kendall asks what she did in there? Lena says everybody knows what she did-she was Michael's whore! Now he's dead, and nobody should have to pay for that! Kendall agrees, and Lena gives her some papers before leaving.

From Soap Slut
http://pub18.ezboard.com/fsoapslutfrm2.showMessage?topicID=41.topic

Aw, Bianca’s being a good and loyal little sister. With Aidan’s insistence that Kendall can only be saved by the reasonable doubt of as many suspects as possible, Binks immediately jumps forward to put herself on the suspect list. Just, awww. Those Kane sisters... Brace yourselves, I’ve decided I hate Maggie’s latest outfit. I know, it’s a shock to everyone. But I just cannot abide the black jeans, with wear-marks purposely placed on the legs (I really hate that particular fashion trend) and what looks like a toreador jacket that’s the worst shade of blue. It seriously looks like she’s wearing Pelt of Smurf. Aidan talks Bianca out of joining the *sscicle Suspect Brigade. He says there’s plenty of other people to go around and since she was most victimized by *sscicle, she should just let everyone else deal with the fallout of his death. Lena makes herself look guilty by gushing to Bianca that whoever killed *sscicle did the world a favor and would probably be happy to go to prison for it. There’s a flashback of Lena fondling the only thing that could prematurely go off in her face: a big, giant gun. She’s dropping it into the water at the boathouse. And I thought Lena was smart. She didn’t even wipe her fingerprints off of it. If I wasn’t seeing Lena there with my very eyes, I’d swear it was Mia. Also, Lena’s hair looks a lot shorter in this scene. I wonder how long ago they filmed it...

Kendall is back in the courtyard where she finds Lena standing there all zoned out. On a completely shallow note, I lurve Kendall’s denim jacket. When Kendall asks if Lena’s all right, the response is, “How can I ever be all right, knowing what I did in that man’s home?” Oh come on, you don’t really think I’m going to believe Lena’s talking about having murdered *sscicle do you? I check my driver’s license to make sure I wasn’t born yesterday. Nope. Duh, Lena’s talking about sex. She regrets having slept with *sscicle. Big fat doy...

Oh dear God. Maggie has removed her Smurfy toreador jacket. Put it back on! Put it back on! My eyes bleed at the bright orange tie-dyed shirt that she’s wearing under it. Bianca knew that there would be days she would question her decision to keep her baby and today is one of them. Maggie gives Bianca a binder that’s supposed to be a baby book. You know, you put things like the first days Baby does something, and locks from its first haircut. Man, Elizabeth Hendrickson is milking this scene for all the one-sided HoYay it’s worth, I tell you.

Ha! I knew it. Lena’s upset because she whored herself out to *sscicle. She hands over what brought her there in the first place: a file for Kendall’s perusal...





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/.

Lena parts are indicated in red for those who only want a Lena fix

TODAY ON ALL MY CHILDREN:

  • Erica and Bianca are related.
  • Ryan is delusional.
  • How many triangles does it take to make a dodecagon?
  • For Babe, Erica is the new Alexis.
  • Pine Valley is caught in a temporal vortex.  Again.

The Set-Up – At B.J.’s and at the hospital, it’s all about the men who want to protect Erica.

At Enchantment, it’s all about the women who want to protect Bianca. Oh, wait: Aidan is a man. Oh, well.

Bianca insists that she’s a viable suspect.

Bianca: "Maybe, that day, when Michael came into the witness room, after the Judge had let him free, maybe I just went numb listening to him gloat. Maybe I told him that I wanted him dead. Maybe I even told him that if I had a gun, right then and there, I would have shot and not just once, but over and over and over and over and –"
Lena: "Bianca, shut up! Now!"


It would be wrong to cheer at the shut up thing, right?  Well, if I cheer and shout "Spine!Lena is back, BACK!" and you can't see me, is it really a jiggy dance?  And, Lena: you can't blame Bianca for not being up-to-date with the latest blame game!  You know she gets all of her information from Maggie these days.  Let's blame her 'cause, well, it's more fun that way. 

Outside her condo, Kendall tells Derek to leave her alone and go write a parking ticket.


The Courtyard – In an effort to protect Kendall, Ryan pretends that their argument was about his and Kendall’s past relationship and her efforts to reignite it, but Kendall would rather get arrested than have anyone think she still finds FrankenBrow attractive.

Once Derek and TagAlongADA leave, Kendall reveals that she’s "set everything up" and offers to tell Ryan everything.

About what, Kendall: your new curler?


The Hospital – It’s the Jack and David show, which must be why I’m yawning. The only interesting thing about all this posing is that, for a change of pace, it’s two men fighting over a woman and not the other way around. You know, just like Jamie and J.R. are doing. Or Ryan and Aidan. Oh, and Abel and Cain. Those Bible study classes must be really paying off for you, huh, McThing? Nothing modern gets past you.


B.J.’s – J.R., Jamie and Babe walk in; Babe flushes when J.R. offers to introduce her to Erica.

Babe: "Wait, wait, wait: how do I look?"

Well, you have the moo and the bling, so I’d say you look just about perfect for any gay dairy farmer.

Alone with Jamie, Babe wants to gush about Erica, but he wants to talk about his feelings. Devirginalize a young guy and you’re left with the worst kind of processing lesbian there is: who knew?

At her table, Erica likens Mary to a rodent.

Erica: "You’re running, running, running on your little rodent wheel, just expending all that energy and getting nowhere."

I guess now Erica knows how her hair must feel.


Enchantment – Bianca thinks it’s perfectly ok for her to run interference for Kendall, but Lena disagrees and points out that the police might decide to question her if they were to hear her rambling on. Maggie agrees and adds that Bianca "should be taking care of [herself] right now." And of…you know.


The Courtyard – Telling Ryan "everything" turns out to be yet another rehashing of how Kendall and Michael met and of the FEM story line; naturally, Kendall blames herself for having brought Michael to town and for not having foreseen the possibility that he might go after Bianca.

Ryan: "What would you have possibly done to stop him?"

Hum, killed him sooner?

Kendall says that, after the trial, it became clear that "Michael’s days were numbered;" she married him to gain access to his assets knowing that he might go into hiding and everything would then become hers – but she didn’t kill him.

No, really? Gee, one of these days we might actually get this d*** plot to move forward. It’s called "getting and maintaining interest," McHack: look into it.

Ryan walks into Michael’s condo and points out the Luminol above the fireplace. While I’m delighted that someone at AMC watches enough CSI to even know what Luminol is, I can’t help but laugh at that moronic blood splatter: Michael was what, 4 feet tall? For the splatter to be where it is, the killer would have had to have shot him while lying on the ground. And, anyway, did someone apply the blood on the wall using Lena’s spaghetti strainer?


Enchantment – Aidan thinks Bianca should allow the people who love her to shield her from suspicion; since he turns to Lena when he says the word "love" and she’s the only person in the room who has been questioned by the police, one must wonder just what Maggie’s role is in all of this.  Except for umbilical-cord whacker, that is.

Lena asks Bianca to "stop feeling responsible for whoever took out Michael Cambias" because "whoever stopped [Michael] doesn’t feel like they’ve done anything wrong."

What? Why, what have you heard?

Bianca: "How can you say that?"
Lena: "Because it wasn’t murder: it was a privilege. Going to jail won’t be a punishment: it’ll be a reward."


Now I know Lena didn’t do it because, considering how much she's grown accustomed to Bianca’s monthly rejections and teeth-kicking, she’d never think of prison as a reward: welcome to codependence land.  Still, Lena: shut up.

Once again, because the writers need to kill more time before November sweeps and simply don’t know how else to fill the air, we get a flashback: this time it’s Lena, at the Pier, throwing her Big Shiny Gun into the water below. That dress looks even more horrible now, and the hair! The hair, my god: who the hell was set loose on Olga’s hair that day, a 12-year old page boy?

Revelry over, Lena excuses herself and asks Maggie to take "good care" of Bianca. Who’s the bigger person now? Oh, wait: it’s always been Lena.


B.J.’s – Babe tells Jamie that she hates "the situation, not [him]," because it made her transform into a tramp and have sex with him 10 minutes after first meeting him.

J.R. comes back with reporters in tow – because his nuptials are news! They’re important! They’re front-page stuff! Oh, f*** off and go crawl under a rock.


Michael’s Condo – Ryan seems to be allergic to the Luminol, so Kendall hands him a bottle of water from a fridge with no electricity – even though the light over the stove is on – and Michael’s antihistamines.

That’s right everyone: Michael suffered from allergies. We were never told about that because – well, because those pills are a plot device!  We must not be set off to anything!  We must be surprised! At all costs! Ahh! My shadow! How did it get there? Ahh! The sky! It's above my head! Ahh! My shoes! They're on my feet! Meh.

While Ryan pops more pills, Kendall walks out and sees Lena standing against the column and staring into space.

Kendall: "Lena? Are you all right?"

Lena: "How can I ever be all right knowing what I did in that man’s home?"

You’re not waiting for a confession, are you? You know Lena is just going to remember something horrible about her past dealings with Michael – because the writers have not yet realized that not only are we on to this moronic game, but that we’re not interested in rehashing all this crap for another month or two.  But, by all means, let's not allow our collective disinterest and boredom to stand in the way of Storytelling According To McTavish.


Bianca’s Office – On the front page of the Pine Valley Bulletin, the headline reads "PVPD reports no arrests in the Cambias murder investigation." When Aidan knocks on his door, Boyd tries to find a hiding place for the paper and ends up throwing it in the trash – because that won’t look silly or suspicious.


The Last Scenes – At the hospital, Reggie punches David and tells him to stay away from Erica.  Hey, whatever stops him from showing any more of his disgusting kissing technique.

At Enchantment, Bianca thinks about Lena and worries she might be the person Maggie saw the night Michael disappeared.

What, do you care all of a sudden?

Maggie is adamant that Lena was not the person she saw that night and, when Bianca begins to question her decision to keep VolderBaby, takes out a baby book and hands it to Bianca so that she can catalogue all the baby’s "firsts."

Bianca: "I think it’s the greatest present I’ve ever gotten in my life."

Oh, come on! You’re having a baby and Maggie got you a baby book for pics: how great can this present be? I have no imagination when it comes to gift-giving and that’s the first think I’d have thought of. Pfft. Come here, Ducky: I’ll take you to the pond.

In the Courtyard, Lena doesn’t confess to anything new, hands Kendall a folder and walks away.  The camera lingers and so does Kendall's gaze.  What, now you want HoYay with Lena, too?  You have no shame, Kendall.  Hee.

In Michael’s condo, Ryan is surprised to find that the police have dusted for prints.  U-huh.  You’re as stupid as you think we think you are, Ryan.  The room begins to spin, Ryan has difficulty breathing and collapses. With any luck, police response will be very, very slow.


TOMORROW ON ALL MY CHILDREN: Reggie asks Erica to make peace with Greenlee; Adam wants Tad’s help; Ryan continues to collapse.





COMMENTARY 1

This commentary is by Susan P..

[Continuation of MagBiLena scene with Aidan re: who's got motive)

Another brief note re: Lena's hand gestures: Lena has lost the cup of tea by the time Bianca starts off on her long 'what if' rant about why she might have had motive to kill Michael. More often than not during the rest of this scene, Lena's arms are crossed in front of her. She drops them in frustration just before she tells Bianca to shut up--her arms are at her sides as she faces off with Bianca. When Bianca asks whether she's supposed to pretend that the investigation isn't happening, Lena crosses her arms again and pretty much keeps them that way until just after Aidan leaves (though she does bring her right hand up to her face a couple times). After he leaves, Bianca notices that Lena is deep in broody, contemplative mode and calls her name. Lena turns back to her immediately, dropping her hands to her sides. After she tells Bianca not to feel responsible for what whoever-it-was did to Michael, Lena touches TNCCR for just a moment, then holds her hands out toward Bianca, palms up in supplication, while she goes on about Michael's death being a good thing.



PARODY

This parody is by LizzieT.

Lena parts are indicated in red for those who only want a Lena fix

The gang at Enchantment discussed the murder case.
Bianca: I wanted Michael dead as much as anyone.
Lena: Don't say things like that. You don't want the police to mark you down as a suspect.
Bianca: Why not? Everyone else gets to be a suspect. :::pouts::: I never even got taken in for questioning. I never have any fun.
Aidan: Oi've got plenty of other people to turn in as suspects withowt yew. Kendall wewd nile me spotted dick to the wall if Oi mide it lewk loik yew killed Moichal.
Lena: Besides, whoever did it enjoyed it. It was the most fun they had ever had. And they're not the least little bit sorry. In fact they'd do it again in a heartbeat just for the sheer joy of it.....not that I would know from personal experience you understand. Now if you'll excuse me I'll just look mysterious and have a flashback to dropping my gun in the Pine Valley Ocean. I hope the tide has carried it out to New Jersey by now.

Adam tried to get the truth out of Erica.
Adam: I saw what you did.
Erica: What did I do?
Adam: You know.
Erica: Oh please. Everyone always says ...you know when they don't know.
Adam: I just want you to know that you can trust me not to tell what I know about ...you know. Oh no, here comes JR and his new wife.
Erica: I've heard that storyline isn't exactly setting the world on fire. You have my sympathy.
Adam: Why couldn't JR have found someone more like Lena? I don't see why your kids get all the classy ones.
JR: Hi Erica. I want you to meet my wife Babe.
Babe: I'm so thrilled to meet you Ms. Kane. I'm a huge fan.
Erica: Of course you are.
Babe: This is like the greatest moment of my life.
Erica: Of course it is. Adam, I don't know why you don't like this girl. She's brilliant - and such a good judge of people.
Jamie: Why did you kiss me Babe?
Babe: It was just a friendly kiss.
Jamie: Tonsil hockey is a little more than friendly.
Babe: Not in my line of work - er, I mean life experience.
JR: Come here Babe. I've called a press conference.
Adam: Apparently it's a really slow news day, even for Pine Valley.
JR: Ladies and gentlemen of the press, this is my new wife Babe. I'm not only married to this glorious creature who will be faithful to me until I die, but I'm taking over the reins of Chandler Enterprises.
Reporter : Great story. Let's lead with "Delusional high school dropout delivers another crushing blow to the crumbling world economy".

Reggie talked to Jack at the hospital.
Jack: So the doctors assured me that Greenlee will regain her memory quickly rather than in one of those long drawn out amnesia storylines that drive the audience crazy.
Reggie: Speaking of long drawn out storylines, isn't it time you and Erica got back together? This breakup is starting to remind people of the Proteus storyline - and that's not a good thing.
Jack: It's not that simple Reggie.
Reggie: It's simpler than you think. November Sweeps is just around the corner. What are you waiting for - February?

Erica found David.
Erica: Oh David, I need your help. Adam knows something.
David: I'll find out what he knows. But I have an appointment first.
Erica: An appointment? How important can that be?
David: I'm a doctor. Someone might be dying.
Erica: Like that's my fault? They should have taken better care of themselves when they had the chance. Now get busy and help me.
David: I'll....
Reggie: ::::whack::::Leave my step mother alone.
David: Great. Back to being the town punching bag. :::sigh::::Sometimes I wonder if we did the right thing in getting rid of Michael. He was the only person in town more unpopular than me.

Derek was startled by Kendall's words.
Derek: You just threatened to kill this man.
Kendall: I know.
Ryan: She didn't mean it. She's just mad because she begged me to come back to her and I wouldn't do it. Besides, she's kind of hormonal right now it you know what I mean.
Derek: Yikes! We'll see you later. Good luck Ryan.
Kendall: Begged you! Hormonal! Now I really want to kill you.
Ryan: I'm trying to help you here. Wouldn't you rather they thought you were being rejected than seriously wanting to kill someone?
Kendall: No. Being on death row is less humiliating than being dumped any day. Besides, Erica knows this place where you can get prison coveralls custom tailored.
Ryan: Hey, come in here and look at this.
Kendall: No thanks. I've seen it before. Besides, you dumped me, remember?
Ryan: Not that. Look at this splotch on the wall. Do you know what it is?
Kendall: One of Hildi's decorating projects from Trading Spaces?
Ryan: No. It's luminol. It shows where there was blood. So was there blood in Michael's condo?
Kendall: Good question. Another good question would be that if Michael was shot in the chest and he's a really short guy how did the blood end up only over the fireplace?
Ryan: :::aaachhhooooo::::aaachooooo::::aaaachooooo::::Hey, I think I'm allergic to something.
Kendall: Here, take some of Michael's allergy pills.
Ryan: Good idea. See you later.....:::gasp::::choke::::wheeze::::Hey, wait a minute. I just got back. It's Carlos who's leaving not me. What's going on here?::::gasp::::clunk::::::



LENAVERSE

Observation from D. Alexander
Regarding Lena's flashback at the pier with the big gun on the night of Michael's disappearance:
[In the flashback,] there's no splash sound this time (there was when the scene first aired). It sounds like Olga [Sosnovska] drops the gun onto the set floor. Guess the sound editor was mesmerized by Lena's hair and dress and forgot to dub in the correct sound effect.



QUOTES

Bianca: I had plenty of motive to kill michael cambias, so add me to your list of suspects.

Lena: Bianca, shut up now!

Lena: Bianca, look, I know you feel responsible for whoever took out Michael Cambias. Don't. He took pleasure in torturing you and so many other people, and whoever stopped him doesn't feel like they've done anything wrong.
Bianca: How can you say that?
Lena: Because it wasn't murder, it was a privilege. And going to prison won't be a punishment, it'll be a reward.

Lena: You know what I did. Everybody knows what i did. I was michael's whore. I allowed him to keep taking whatever he wanted, and now he's dead. Nobody should have to pay for that.

Lena: Bianca, stop it. Don't say that.
Bianca: Well, why not? Aidan says that he needs as many suspects as possible, that creating reasonable doubt is the best way to save kendall. Well, I am a viable suspect.
Maggie: No, bianca, you were his victim.
Bianca: Well, maggie, maybe I got tired of being his victim. Maybe that day when michael came into the witness room after the judge had let him free, maybe I just went numb listening to him gloat. Maybe I told him that I wanted him dead. Maybe I even told him that if i had a gun right then and there, i would've shot him, and not just once --

Lena: I don't care.
Bianca: Well, I do. I don't want the police threatening any of you to -- to send you to jail for a crime that was committed to protect me.

Aidan: To reclaim your life, the one you had before cambias came along.
Bianca: I barely remember who that person was.
Aidan: Well, we do, and that's why we are all willing to do this for you, bianca. Find that sweet person again, and you'll give back what michael stole from all of us.
Bianca: What was that?
Aidan: Hope. I'll see you later.
Maggie: You ok?
Bianca: Yeah.

Bianca: Maggie, I know that -- that you saw something that night. I need for you to tell me. Was it lena?
Maggie: No. No, no, it was not lena, I swear. Bianca, I just want you to stop thinking about this. I'm afraid that you're going to make yourself sick.
Bianca: I know, I know. I knew that there was going to be -- I knew that there would be days like this. I knew that I would question the decision I made. Days that I would feel like maybe keeping this baby was the biggest mistake that i had ever made in my entire life. I just had no idea that it would feel like this. Am i crazy, maggie, for doing this? For going through with it -- keeping that man's baby?
Maggie: This is not his baby, this is your baby.
Maggie: This is your baby to love and to raise. So i bought you this. I know that you didn't want to get anything before the baby was born, but it was -- I couldn't resist.
Bianca: You got me a baby book. And there's a place for the first picture of the baby.
Maggie: You know, I know that today is a horrible day. But look at all of the things that you have to look forward to -- when the baby first smiles, when the baby rolls over in its sleep, the first night that it actually sleeps throughout the night. The first time that the baby ever says "mommy." Oh, I -- i didn't mean to get you upset. I'm sorry. I'll -- I'll take it back --
bianca: No, no, you're not taking it back. I love it. I -- i think it's the greatest present I've ever gotten in my life.

Kendall: Well, you won't get an argument from me. But what are you doing here now?
Lena: Oh -- these. I wanted you to have them. We can talk about them later.
Kendall: Ok.
