What I Watched Today

(rambling, random thoughts & annoyingly detailed recaps from real time TV watching)

 

Fear the Walking Dead

Alicia faces the zombie barricade. She radios the kids, asking if they can hear her. Nothing. She takes out her crazy weapon, and chops through the ropes linking the zombies.

Victor shoots at the zombies, and suggests he and Charlie beat a hasty retreat. He has to check the propeller, and Charlie yells, this way! coaxing the zombies away from him. Morgan radios, saying he heard gunshots. He tells Victor that they need to stay away from the zombies with burns on them. Stay as far away as they can. He’s seen people who were exposed, and it ain’t pretty.

Alicia chops zombies down like Joan Crawford chopping rosebushes. She ignores the ones who are restrained. She pikes a few in the head for variety.

Morgan tells Victor that Alicia is looking for Max and Annie. He asks if Victor is still near the balloon. Victor says they are, and asks Morgan for something. I miss what it is, but Morgan says he’s on it. June radios Morgan, saying she’s on her way. Morgan says he doesn’t know where John is, and if she wants to help, she can do that by finishing the plane. Morgan radios Grace, and says he needs some help. Some people crashed on the other side. They’re all right, but they need her. It’s the only way they’ll finish. He tells her that he’s past the roadblock. She says if he gets any closer, he could be contaminated. He says she has what they need to fix the plane. She tells him that he needs to get back to the truck stop, unless he wants less time to finish. She tells him where he can stop to get what he needs.

Alicia continues on through the woods. She gets a little fascinated with a tied-up zombie. She feels something behind her, and turns around to find Dylan. He tells her to follow him. The forest is crowded with zombie deterrents, attached to trees.

Victor drags the propeller, as the zombies toddle after him. He tells Charlie, now, and she pulls the balloon material up to make a barrier between them and the zombies.

At a tall, wooden gate, Dylan says, olly, olly, oxen free. The gate opens, and Alicia follows Dylan in. Max holds a gun on her, and Alicia says she wants to help. Annie says she told Alicia that they didn’t want it. She never should have come there. The gate closes.

Annie asks why Alicia has that thing, meaning her weapon. Alicia says it gives her another day. They’re running out of time. They all are. They’re not safe there. Annie says they made it through the first one, but Alicia says, one day the wind will blow in a different direction, and kick up the radiation. Annie asks why Alicia can’t leave them alone. Alicia says she can’t leave knowing she didn’t do everything to keep them safe. They could die, or worse, live and kill everyone by staying there. She knows getting on a plane sounds crazy, but so is staying there. Annie says Alicia crashed a plane, and someone almost died for a person who wasn’t even there. They put a barrier up, and Alicia still won’t give up. There’s something else. What is it? Alicia says she wants to do something good to make up for what she did. Annie asks if Alicia hurt people, and Alicia says she did. She asks if Alicia killed people, and Alicia says, yes. She doesn’t want them to go through what she did. Annie says she’s not going, and neither is Alicia. She tore down the only thing protecting them. She needs to help put the barricade back up, and make sure no one followed her. If Alicia misses her flight, it’s her fault.

Gas drips from the airplane, and Luci tells Al that they must have put a hole in the tank when they moved it. Al checks out the damage, says, sh*t, and gets into the cockpit. The plane won’t start. June says they’re standing on a giant gas tank, but Al says it’s not the same. They need aviation fuel. She knows where they can get some.

Morgan checks inside a car, and finds a bag with a mask in it. He goes into a house, pokey stick at the ready. He bangs on the floor, but all is quiet. He looks through some drawers, and radios Alicia. He asks if she’s all right, and she says, yeah. She found the kids; they’re with her now. She asks about Victor and Charlie, and if they’re still in the contaminated area. Morgan says, yes, and so is he, but not for much longer. He picks up a birthday card, and looks at it. He tells Alicia, John and Dwight are out of range. Stay safe, and get the kids back to the truck stop. Alicia says she tried, and she can’t. She can’t get through to them. Morgan should be there. Morgan says they’re both exactly where they’re supposed to be. He looks at some personal mementos on the refrigerator, and finds a set of keys. Alicia says she’s starting to wonder if this is right, but Morgan says, it is. He hears a zombie being noisy outside the window. He looks at it, and the reflection of his face looks like it’s the zombie’s face. He tells Alicia that they’re getting everybody on the plane, and they’re going to do what they came there to do.

June asks if Al is sure where the helicopter landed. Al say she is. She can climb up, and see what’s left.  John’s voice crackles over the radio. June tells him that he has to get back to the truck stop. He says they’re still a ways out, but she says, the second reactor might melt down. Grace said they don’t have much time. John has a problem hearing her, and loses the signal. Dwight found tells John that he found something. John says they need to get the hell out of there. Dwight tell him to go. John has done more for him then he needed to. He he has to keep looking. He asks if John would get on the plane if he knew June was out there, and John says, of course not. John almost gives Dwight the note from Shari, but decides against it. He says, come on.

Charlie asks if Victor thinks the material is going to hold, and he says, yes. She tells him, Daniel said, every day was a chance to start over; to get it right. Victor says, he speaks the truth, but she doesn’t think the barrier is going to hold for long. They might not get a chance. Victor says they already have. He knows he’s said that should have been his plane, but the truth is, he might have been able to get back on. He hesitated. Charlie asks, why? and he says he doesn’t think he believed in it – in them. They were on the precipice of something extraordinary, and he balked, but he’s standing there now. So is she, and they did something extraordinary, and didn’t balk. They’re not starting now.

Victor gets his gun ready, but blood starts to spatter on the other side. It’s Morgan, shooting up zombies while wearing a Hazmat suit. Victor tells him that he just said they’re due for a break. Morgan asks where the propeller is, and says he’s got to get them out of there.

Annie asks why Dylan brought Alicia there. He says, she wants to help, and Annie says, she’s a mess. Dylan says, the plane can work, and she asks if he wants to get in a plane that’s already crashed. If they stay there, they stay safe. They fix the zombie blockade, and jet.

Up in a treehouse, Alicia looks through a box of photographs, and finds a notebook of a child’s drawings. There are drawings of a family, a zombie barricade, and it looks like the kids as zombies. Dylan asks what she’s doing, and she asks if he drew these. He nods, and she says, he’s scared, isn’t he? She tells him, it’s okay, but he takes the book, puts it back in the box, and moves the box out of reach. He says he drew them before; at the beginning, when everything happened. He says, they were playing. Annie saw them, and thought they were scary. She thought if they made it real, it would scare away the others, so no one would bother them. Alicia says they’re living in his nightmare, and Dylan says, everything is a nightmare now. Alicia can’t argue with that. He looks at her weapon, and she says, it wasn’t always like that. She sharpened it after she lost her mom. It saved her from the dead, but kept the living away. She thought if she scared them, they’d leave her alone, but she was the one who was scared. Annie comes in, and says the zombies followed them.

A kid reinforces the gate, but it doesn’t look like it’s going to hold.

The generator doesn’t work, and Grace bangs on it. She puts her head in her hands. Morgan radios, and says he got what he needed. She tells him the generator isn’t strong enough; she’s sorry. He asks how long before a meltdown, and she says, twelve hours; maybe a day. Morgan says they’ll finish by then. She say she can still buy them time. He asks if that’s the truth, and she says she can try. She uses a wrench to tinker with something, and tells Morgan that she’ll go to the truck stop when she’s done.

Morgan gives Grace directions to the truck stop.  He tells Victor that he’ll meet them there. He’s going to get her. Victor says he thought they just said Grave was meeting them, but Morgan says, she’s not coming back. He was at her house, and saw who she was when she had something to live for. He says he’ll meet them there, and Victor and Charlie take off.

June packs up the gas containers, and tells Al it should get them over the mountain. Al says the fact that she knew where to find it, points to them being able to do this. She radios John, but it’s dead air. June says she went over a year without seeing John, without hearing his voice. She’s not letting that happen again. She waits a moment, and says, well? Al says she asked if Al wanted to talk about what happened when she was missing. She does, but June can’t tell anyone.

She tells June that she met someone. June says, who? When? Al says while she was gone, she met someone and felt something she hasn’t felt in a long time. But Al can never see her again, never talk to her, and doesn’t know how to live with that. June says when she left John in the cabin, she thought she’d never see him again. She felt… gone. Like she wasn’t the same as when she was with him. She was a ghost. She couldn’t talk about it. Nothing anyone said would have made it better. What do you say when someone is missing a piece of themselves? The piece that makes them who they are. She told herself every day, even if never saw him again, she’d always be grateful for what they had, and who she could be. Grateful that she could still feel that way for someone after everything. That it could even exist. She chooses to believe that whoever she is, Al will see her again. Al knows June will see John again. June says, as sure as sh*t, she knows that.

The fence isn’t doing well. Alicia asks about guns, and Annie says, they’re not loaded. She insists the fence will hold. They put the zombies there, and Alicia can’t stop them by herself. Alicia begs Annie to give her the guns. Max says, she’s right. He saw her after the crash. Dylan agrees she can keep them safe. The zombies start to come through. Alicia tells Annie to work on a plan to get down, and she’ll hold them off. Zombies begin to come across on a footbridge that hangs over the water, and Alicia meets them halfway. She impales one, not even breaking her stride.

John drives until the gas tank is empty. He says they have to raise June on the radio, or they’re up the creek. Dwight points out a giant rig. They get in the cab, and John tries to hotwire it. Dwight says they can walk if they have to. He says she might have made it across the mountain; they can too. John says it doesn’t sound like they have days. He thinks he may have gotten them into trouble. When Dwight asked if he’d found anything in the car, he said no. He lied. He found this… He hands Dwight the note, and Dwight reads it. John says he’s sorry. Dwight gets out of the truck.

Grace works on the generator. Morgan arrives wearing the suit, and carrying his pokey stick. He says Grace might not know how much time she has left, but she’s not dead yet, and he’s not letting her act like she is.

Alicia whacks and stabs zombies. She radios the kids, asking how it’s going. Max says they need more time. Zombies start trickling in. Alicia gives it everything she’s got, but one gets her down, his eyeball hanging in her face. This really pisses her off, and she flips him over, stabbing the other eyeball into next week. She sees the ID from the nuclear plant around his neck, and realizes there’s blood on her and she probably got it in her mouth.

Annie shoots at a couple of zombies, who tumble down the hill, pushing them even closer. She’s not a great shot but finally gets them in the head. Alicia asks if they’re okay, and Max says, yeah. Her? She looks around, and says, this isn’t going to work. She can’t do what she said. Annie tells her to come up, but she says, no. She knows they don’t want to leave, but they’ll die if they stay. You have to know when to let go. She tells Annie, get the kids on the plane. That’s how to protect them. Annie doesn’t know what Alicia did, but thanks her for it. She tells the kids, let’s go, and they head out.

Alicia bangs on the gate, and says, come on.

Luci tells Victor and Charlie they can shower and get fresh clothes. Victor tells her, Morgan said he’d be there, and Luci is sure he will.

Sitting outside the truck, Morgan tells Grace that he didn’t have much choice. He did what he had to do. Grace says they don’t know how much radiation they’ve been exposed to. He says he tried to face things, and almost died trying. A man named Eastman helped him. Eastman taught him that all life is precious. Grace asks how he knew she wouldn’t leave, and he says he didn’t. He just took a chance. Eastman taught him something else, about redirection. He didn’t think his own life was worth saving, so he made it about someone else’s life. She asks what if she’d refused to leave? and he says he didn’t think of that. She laughs, and says they have the same problem. They think everyone else’s life is more valuable than their own. She gets in the truck.

Charlie says they have to get to work. The kids show up at the gate. Luci introduces Victor and Charlie. Dylan says, The Little Prince. That was Charlie’s book. Charlie says it was. Luci says they came back, and Annie says, Alicia was convincing. Victor says, she usually is, and asks where she is now. I think Annie says, stuck, but I’m not positive.

Alicia leads the zombies through the forest.

Dwight looks at Shari’s rings. John supposes Dwight isn’t happy with him. He’d said that the world hadn’t touched John. Dwight knows why John did it. He wanted to keep Dwight going. John says, it doesn’t have to be the end of the road. Dwight says she didn’t want him looking for her, and looks at the note again. He reads, find something to live for, and live. He says he doesn’t want to give it up, even if she’s telling him to stop, but if he does find a reason to live, he has to make it right. Maybe they’ll end up like him and June. Maybe… she’s alive. Impossible sh*t happens. John says it happened for him, and Dwight says he’s going to get John back to June.

Alicia rinses her mouth in the creek. I don’t know how smart that is. In the car with Grace, Morgan radios, and asks if she’s all right. After the longest pause ever, she says she’s okay. She picked up a pack of walkers, but thinks she lost them. He tells her that the kids made it to the truck stop. She did it. He says when he and Grace were on their way back, he kept thinking about what she said. He thinks helping people isn’t the only reason. They might be right; trying make up for the lives they took. When they stopped living on their own, they kept finding people to help, but also helped themselves find a way to start living. Alicia says they will. Morgan asks her to tell him where she is. She gets up. A few zombies have nearly caught up to her.

A siren goes off, and Morgan says, is that…? She says, yes. We see the plant, where the zombies try to get at the speakers blasting the sound.

Next time, Max Headroom is back, June tries to find John, and the plane is started.

💍 The new season of 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days will begin on August 4th. I can’t wait. The Family Chantel, starting July 22nd, sounds intriguing, but phony as hell. I’ve always had the nagging suspicion that, even if their story is based in truth, these people have been reading their lines. And they’re bad actors. Yet somehow they’ve charmed the fans and gotten a spin-off.

July 7, 2019 – Victor Finds a Way, the Last Preacher, Another 90 Spin-Off & Monday Storm

Standard

What I Watched Today

(rambling, random thoughts & annoyingly detailed recaps from real time TV watching)

 

Fear the Walking Dead

Annie washes herself up. The rest of the kids watch a cartoon and laugh. Dylan reads The Little Prince. Annie tells Max that there’s hot water. Morgan radios, and asks if everyone is okay. She says, yeah, and he thanks her for holding down the fort. He says they don’t plan on staying much longer. She asks if he understands the roads are out, and tells him, don’t go near the radiation signs. He says he knows, and she asks how he’s planning on getting out. He says he’ll show them if they open the gate.

Morgan drives in with the body of the plane on a flatbed, with a convoy of trucks behind him. He says they were honest, but didn’t tell the kids everything. They did a lot of bad things, and have done things they regret and have to live with. Things they aren’t able to run away from. It wasn’t easy getting there, but they didn’t give up. They found a way because they had something to fight for, even if it wasn’t what they thought. No one was on the end of the radio, but they still had something to fight for – each other – and them. They can do this. They’ve done the impossible before. Luci says they’ll need some help. Dylan asks what they do now, and Luci says, fix the plane. Fly back across the mountains together. I don’t suppose there are any airplane mechanics among those kids.

Morgan asks if Grace copies. He’s working on a way to get home, and found some people he thinks she’d want to meet. Near the car roadblock, Grace turns off the radio. Morgan says he’ll leave the channel open. If she hears him, let them know. Morgan practices with his latest pokey stick. It’s not satisfactory, so he looks for something else. He tries to pull the head off of a mop, and Alicia finds him. They both laugh, and she asks if he’s okay. He says he’s good, and she asks for a hand with the landing gear.

Outside, everyone works to get the plane back together. Luci asks Dylan what he thinks, and he takes off his glasses. He thinks it’s going to work. He says the book says to only see with the heart, not the eyes, so he got rid of eyes. She asks if his heart knows how to fix the reduction gear.

Oil drips on Sarah’s head as she tinkers with something. Victor says he’ll get her a rag, and she tells him to get a beer too. She works better with a five out of ten buzz. Victor tells Charlie to radio the others, and tell them it might take a minute. Annie tells Dylan that they’re there to help, so these people leave, and they can go back to how things were. June asks Annie about her ankle, and wants to look at it. Luci takes Dylan and Max back out to the plane.

June says, Annie wants to run, doesn’t she? She used to run too, but never with a sprained ankle. If she was Annie, she’d wit a week, and maybe get a new pair of shoes. And socks. Her boyfriend says, survival starts with socks. John walks in, and says, that’s a fact. He and Dwight are keeping up the search. He wants to make sure Shari is on the plane when it takes off. June tells Dwight to keep John out of trouble, and Dwight says he’ll try.

Al gets in the plane, and starts it. The propellers turn, but one starts to look dicey. Luci yells, get down! as the propeller flies off. Dylan asks if that’s the reduction gear. Al wonders where they’re going to get a new propeller. A zombie toddles onto the scene. Alicia is about to whack him with what’s left of the propeller, but Morgan gets there first, using his new mop pokey stick. He asks, what happened? and Al says, the engine worked, but the propellers didn’t. Morgan says they’ll start looking for a replacement. Grace radios, asking if they have a generator. They need to unlock it, gas it up, and get it ready for transport. He asks, what’s going on? and she says, a different plan. And if he doesn’t do what she says, there will be another meltdown.

Dwight thinks he and John are wasting time; he’s been down this way already. John says when he was looking for June, he thought she was dead, but when he met other people, things started clicking. An extra set of eyes helps you see better. He says he doesn’t mean to pry, but how did Dwight and Shari split up? Dwight says he and Shari got split up before he left where he was living. John asks how he ended up with her rings, and Dwight says, it’s complicated. John says the first time June told him that she loved him, she didn’t tell him. She spelled it out with Scrabble tiles. They never left his pocket. Dwight says he’s lucky it worked out for him, and John says they’ll find her. She’ll be on the plane. Dwight says he’s not talking about that; he’s talking about how John is, the way he thinks, how he is now. He hasn’t been broken or burned or twisted, and Dwight hopes he never is. John says he’s luckier than Dwight thinks. The world did a number on him, and gave him more than he could handle. It was hard to deal with, but he found a way.

Alicia tells Luci the generator is cooling. The system failed, and Grace needs it. It won’t fix it, but it will buy them time. They need finish the plane – fast. Luci tells everyone she’s pulling the plug, and they’re going dark. Victor says he’ll find a way to get them back. He doesn’t know how, but he will. The radio goes dead.

Sarah tells Victor, it will take too long get there, but there’s an airstrip north of where they are. She radios Wen, and asks if he remembers the airport where they jacked the planes. Victor isn’t optimistic, and Charlie says Victor told them they’d find a way. He says that was just to keep their spirits up. Sarah asks is he d*cking about daisies (a phrase I have never heard), or are they closing the deal? She thought he wanted to help them. Charlie says, so did she. Sarah says they’ve got the pieces, they just have to put them together. Victor says, it’s hopeless. Sarah says, Jimbo took one for the team; he took one hard. Don’t throw that hopeless horsesh*t in the air, and let it land on them. There has to be a way. Charlie asks Sarah if they got everything from Jim’s brewery. She shows Sarah a picture of Jim in a very busy add for his beer. Sarah says, son of a bitch. They’re going to get out.

Morgan meets Grace, and she asks for help moving the cars. She has to suit up and go in.

Al asks if June has heard anything from John, but June says he’s out of range. Al hopes the plane’s circuits aren’t fried. June asks if Al is okay, and Al says she should have kept the helicopter from taking off; they’d be home. June says, no way could she have done that. She asks if something happened when Al was missing. Al shakes her head, but I think June knows better. June says she asked to talk to Al once off the record, and Al let her talk. It helped her, more than Al knows. If Al needs to do the same, she can. June tells Al it’s the least she can do. Al sort of smiles, and says she has to check the battery.

Annie asks Alicia if the woman Morgan left with is from the power plant. Alicia reluctantly says, yeah, and Annie tells the boys, it’s not working. They can’t stay. Alicia says they can’t go back to hiding behind the dead. Annie says they were safe before, and Alicia says they can be safe now. Luci needs all the help she can get to finish the plane. Dylan says he can work, and Max agrees, but Annie says he’s not the one who has to decide. Alicia says they can make the decision together, but Annie says she has to decide for her brothers.

Dwight and John find a dead guy inside an empty diner. Dwight says he saw the guy the last time he was there. He’s been dead a while. Dwight points out that he was shot twice; once by the person who stole his food, and again by himself. John asked him why Shari doesn’t have her ring. She had to give it up to save him. She chose to give up everything for him. The only reason he’s still alive is because of her. He owes her his life. When he left where he was, he was sent away. The person who sent him knew the sh*t he’d done, but knew he loved her, so he said, find her and make it right. Even if can do the first thing, he doesn’t know if he can do the second, or if it’s even possible. John thinks more things are possible than impossible. He takes a food ticket down in the kitchen window. He finds a pencil, rubs it over the ticket and sees the note Shari left, that had been obscured by blood. Dwight is impressed, and John says he used to be a cop. I miss what the note says, but Dwight says he’s been looking down the wrong road the whole time. (I cheat, and check another recap – Shari said there was a storm coming, so she’s switching to country roads.)

Annie packs some cans of food. Alicia asks if the kids are just going to leave like they did before. She says there’s no way they can carry all that, and suggests they take one of the cars – if Annie tells her why they won’t go. Annie says Alicia won’t change her mind. Alicia says, then it won’t hurt to talk about it. Annie says they lived at the camp; her parents, her brothers, and a dozen other families. They found it after everything changed, and it was perfect; like it was built for what was going on. Alicia asks, what happened? and Annie says, a herd of growlers followed them back from a scavenging run. They took certain routes, and did other things to be careful, but they weren’t careful some of the time. That’s all it took. There were so many, and they didn’t look like regular growlers. The growlers were from the power plant, but they didn’t know it. More showed up, but the walls held – at first. The grown-ups got weapons ready for a fight, and when it looked like the walls were about to give, they sent the kids away. They had a spot in the woods that they were to run to, if things went bad. She took the kids there, and they waited; eating and crying in the dark. They tried to stay quiet. They’d done it before, and the grown-ups would come after a night or two, but she just knew. They waited and waited, and after three nights, she went back on her own. Alicia says, she saw them? Annie shakes her head, and says their parents weren’t dead. They killed all the growlers, but they were sick. Her mom and dad wouldn’t even let her come in; they had to talk through the door. They told her not to be afraid, and said they’d get better. They made her promise to stay where they were, and protect her brothers and everyone else. So that’s what she’s doing. Alicia says she gets it; she really does. She thinks about the last thing her mom said every day. Annie says so she understands why they can’t leave. Alicia tells her, just make sure she’s doing what they really asked. Annie asks what she means, and Alicia says, is she surrounding them with the dead to protect her brothers, or is it easier than surrounding herself with the living? Alicia sets the car keys on the counter, and says, all hers. It’s up to her whether she wants to use it. Annie watches Alicia leave. Man, I’d stick with Alicia. She’s pretty badass. Kind of like Addie on Z Nation, but not quite as cool.

Dwight looks at the car registration from Shari, as he and John go toward a cabin. He says she might still be there. John checks the car, while Dwight goes inside. John looks in a knapsack, but it’s empty. He checks the glove box, but nothing. He opens another compartment, and there’s an envelope with an eternity symbol on it. Inside, the note says that Shari had to kill someone. The man at the diner. He almost killed her. They’ve both seen too much, and she doesn’t like the thought of him looking for her. She doesn’t want him to get killed trying to find her. She wouldn’t be able to live with that happening. She asks him to stop looking. She gave him hope, but she wants to give him a chance to get out. This is the end of her trail. It’s the end of them. Don’t let it be the end of him. So he should find something to live for, and live. She’ll love him forever.

Morgan finds his old pokey stick wrapped in plastic, and Grace is like, no. He says the man who taught him how to use it, helped him when he thought death was the only way. He thought if he held the weight of it, he’d know what to say to help those kids – and her. To show them they’re not stuck. But it feels like a piece of wood in plastic. Grace says, wood that can hurt him, and he puts it back. She says she’s not stuck. It’s just over for her. He says she doesn’t know that’s true, but she says she has to do this. She has to give them more time. He asks where the other suit is, and she says, there isn’t one. She gets in her car, and locks it, saying, he can’t come. She’s not letting another person die because of her mistake. He says, there has to another way, but she says, there isn’t. He’s kind and thoughtful, and learned from his mistakes. She’s doing the same thing. She thanks him for helping with the roadblock, and drives away.

Luci find Alicia sitting in a car, and asks if she talked to Annie. Alicia says Annie thinks it’s all on her. She thinks she’s the only one who can protect them. Luci asks if Alicia is leaving, but she doesn’t know. Victor comes through on the radio. Luci answers, and he says, the dulcet tones of a songbird. She asks, where is he? and he says he told her he’d find a way. He’ll see her soon. They’ve got the props. Luci asks if they found a road, but he says, a road isn’t a necessary ingredient to this journey. Look up to the south. We look up to see Victor and Charlie in a hot air balloon, and I literally lol. It’s a huge bottle of Jimbo’s Augie beer. Victor says they’re clearing the runway as they speak. He radios Morgan, and asks if he sees it. He does, and Luci tells Alicia, the kids need to see this. Alicia runs in, but they’re gone. Alicia says, they took off. Morgan says, they need to find them quick. Grace is buying them time, but not a whole lot.

Dwight comes back out, and tells John that Shari wasn’t in there. He found food and supplies though. She was there. John told him when he met the others is when things started clicking with finding June. She’s close; he knows it. He says, she would have left a letter, and asks John if he found anything in the car. John says, no, like I thought he would. Dwight thanks him, and says it’s the closest he’s been to finding her in a long time. It’s everything.

Morgan asks Victor, how long before they touch down? Victor says sooner than he’d hoped. They’re low on fuel. Charlie tells Morgan to come and get them. Morgan asks if they have enough to clear the trees, and Charlie says they’re trying. Victor pulls on the ropes. Morgan tells him not to bring it down there. It’s not safe. It’s contaminated. Victor says, it’s the only way, and the balloon is gone.

Alicia goes to a blockade of the dead in the woods. She calls for Annie, Max, and Dylan. We see a zombie with its intestines hanging out. She radios Morgan, saying, she’s going in. She takes out her weapon. Morgan says, him too. He says if Victor and Charlie can hear him, stay where they are. Don’t kill any walkers. If their blood gets on them, they can die. He trots down the road.

Victor and Charlie see zombies filing out of the forest. Charlie tells Victor, stay away from the walkers. Which IMO, should be easy since they move so slow. The zombies stumble forward.

Next time, Morgan says they’re going to do what they came there to do, Alicia finds the kids, and Victor says they have to make a hasty retreat.

🚬 Preacher’s final season <sniff> will begin Sunday, August 4th.

💒 What Fresh 90 Day Hell Is This…?

Interesting how I’d always thought Chantel, Pedro, and the families that go with them, often seem like they’re reading their lines. Maybe Pedro and Chantel were originally set up by Pedro’s mom Lydia, but perhaps the audience was set up too. The two families hate each other, so now they’re going to create a show together? Makes perfect sense. It also looks like the ever tired-looking Lydia, who jabbered about how no one was interested in a green card, will be looking for one.

We barely knew ye.

What I Watched Today

(rambling, random thoughts & annoyingly detailed recaps from real time TV watching)

 

General Hospital

Jax calls Carly from his new office, thanking her for how quickly it was done. She’s glad he likes it, since she gave her input on a few things. His 55 Porsche was just delivered, and he asks if he can take her out to lunch. She says she’s in the middle of something, and he asks if everything is okay. She says, everything is fine, but I don’t think he’s buying it.

Scotty sees Ava at the MetroCourt. She says she’s headed to Aurora. She’s giving Crimson and explicit interview and photo shoot. She’s going to be on the cover. He hopes they don’t do a hatchet job. She says Jax promised she could tell her side of the story, and she’s hopeful it will be cathartic. He’s glad she’s getting back on track. She says she is. She has more to accomplish to end the hell she’s living in. She tells him that her legal affairs are in order, but he says he’s not there as a lawyer. She says it means so much that he cares, but she doesn’t need a friend either. He says maybe he does.

At the hospital, Bobbie tells Epiphany that she worked out the conflicts, and she’s fully staffed. Epiphany thanks her, and Bobbie thanks Epiphany for helping her with her diagnosis. She found some excellent resources, and is going to be proactive in dealing with her diabetes. She hopes she does half as well as Epiphany has. Epiphany hopes she does better.

Elizabeth shows up at the art therapy room, where Franco is working on a painting. He pushes her back out, telling her, go away. She can’t be there.

On the phone at Charlie’s, Finn asks Anna how the search is going. He tells her, the WSB let Alex escape; shouldn’t they find her? He understands. It’s her sister; it’s her problem. He says Jordan is doing well. She’s having breakfast there right now. We see Jordan at a table with Stella, TJ, and Curtis.

Jordan can’t remember the last time she lingered over breakfast. If things were normal, she’d be at the station. Stella says she should take advantage of the time off, but Jordan wishes she was back at work. Finn stops by, and says in his humble medical opinion, she has everything she needs right there.

Carly tells Sonny she’s been doing research. She’s learning everything she can about spina bifida. A C-section is performed to prevent infection or nerve damage. Sonny says she doesn’t have to do this right now. She says, the more they know, the better they’ll be prepared. She wonders if their baby is born with a defect, can they handle it? He says it would have to be a reality first, but he knows they can handle it. They have the money, the resources, and the support system. They can do this. She says she hears him, and she’s’ grateful, but the reality is that it’s not a month or a week; it’s a lifetime. She’s not sure if she’s strong enough to face it and give the baby what it needs.

Chase thinks it’s good that Jordan is back in circulation, and Curtis says, don’t think she’s returning to work yet. Chase says the new guy has a lot to learn, but he’s bringing Mac along. Jordan says he has plenty of experience, and Curtis says Mac is doing a good job. Now he needs to get to his new job at Aurora. He tells Jordan to make sure she gets some rest, and stay clear of the PCPD. He’s looking good in a suit, and she tells him, make sure his co-workers know he’s married. Stella says she’s proud he’s stepping up, and he says she raised him that way. Finn and Chase leave, and Jordan says she’s glad they figured out how to be brothers. Stella says, they’re good people. Jordan says Chase is her best detective, and she owes her life to Finn. Stella says it won’t be long before they have their own doctor in the family. TJ is like, um… and she asks, what’s wrong? He says he’s been doing some thinking, and he’s not going back to med school this fall.

Finn and Chase sit at a booth. Finn says it sounded urgent, and Chase looks stressed. Chase wants Finn to talk him down before he breaks his girlfriend out of lock-up.

Ava asks Scotty, what’s wrong? and Scotty says he’s feeling lost after Gail’s passing. The scavenger hunt was supposed to make them feel her presence, but for him, it did the opposite. He should have visited her more, but knowing there if needed her… Ava asks if they can find a better time to talk, and he says, she, of all people, should understand. She says she does. He’s suffered a terrible loss, and doesn’t find life satisfying. He’s in the throes of a midlife crisis. It’s normal and predictable. She knows exactly what he needs. Scotty says he’s been waiting… She says he needs to do something for himself; something totally self-indulgent – a red Ferrari. He spends his time worrying about others, and no time having fun. Scotty says, that’s really not… and she says they’ll talk tomorrow, or the next day, and jets.

Franco tells Elizabeth, that came out wrong. He’s always happy see her, but inspiration is fleeting. Elizabeth says he’s really wired, and asks what he’s working on. He doesn’t want to show her, and asks if she let everyone know about the venue change. She assures him that she sent out the information. They’ll replace a horrible memory with a lovely memory, and be glad that their family and friends are there. He says he needs to spend time with his hot, sexy nurse, but she says the honeymoon will be over before the reception is even started. He kisses her. She leaves, and he makes a call, asking how soon someone can get there.

Ava goes to Jax’s office. He asks what outrageous demands is she there for? A personal masseuse from Sweden? While she thinks that’s a fine idea, she’s there to discuss the cover story. He says, it’s pretty straightforward. They pick the questions, and she answers them. She says, the interview is off. He says she signed a contract. She can’t back out. She says she has no intention of backing out. What’s good for Aurora is good for her. She wants to reschedule, since she has a pressing engagement that she can’t put off. He says the only pressing engagement is to get Crimson on the street. An alarm goes off, and Curtis walks in. He thought Jax was away. He’s testing a new security system. Don’t mind him. He’s testing the sensors, and then doing an investigation. Ava tells Jax that she intends to fulfill her obligation, but not today. Something unexpected came up. He says she can’t walk out at the last minute. The alarm goes off again.

Jordan says she thought TJ loved school; he’s at the top of his class. He says he’ll finish eventually, and Stella tells him, define eventually. He says he was talking to a headhunter. There are a lot of jobs in the medical field out there, and he intends toed pay own way. Jordan asks if he’s giving up school so she can pay her medical bills. She has two words – not happening.

Finn says Chase is planning a jailbreak? What did the schoolmarm do now? Not pay a parking ticket? Chase says she refused to disclose her child’s whereabouts, and was jailed for contempt. Finn says he’s sorry. Chase didn’t tell him that Willow had a child. Chase says, it’s not his story to tell. Now it’s a matter of public record. Willow had a son who she gave up at birth. Finn takes it the father is the abusive ex, and Chase says, he wants custody. Finn supposes he has rights, but Chase says, he shouldn’t be in the same room. He believes in the system, but in this case, the system failed.

Scotty goes to the art therapy room, and Franco says he was looking for him. He has a surprise for Elizabeth. He shows Scotty the painting, and Scotty is sure she’ll like it. Franco says, it’s kind of a mess; love will do that to you. Scotty says he wouldn’t know. Franco wants to make sure Scotty is at his wedding, and tells him to feel free to bring a plus one. Scotty says, that would be difficult. He’s minus one and counting.

Elizabeth asks Bobbie if she knows about the change of venue for the wedding. She’s counting on Bobbie and Epiphany being there. Bobbie says she’ll do her best, and Epiphany says it will do her good. Elizabeth asks if there’s something wrong with a patient. Bobbie says, yes and no. The patient is her. She tested positive for type two diabetes.

Carly apologizes, telling Sonny that she’s just trying to be realistic. If the condition is severe, it will be so much more to perform basic tasks. Sonny says she’s going to the worst case. The doctor said not to jump to conclusions. Carly asks what they do until then, and he says, don’t look on the internet. It’s full of frightening possibilities, and their situation is probably not any of them.

TJ says, medical school can wait. He’s not giving up. There are lots of openings, and when he has enough money… Jordan says, absolutely not, and Stella says there are many gifted people out there to fill those jobs, but they’re in desperate need for doctors who have the calling he does. Jordan says she’ll be returning to work soon, Curtis has the new job, and the medical bills will get paid. Stella says, there’s no quitting this thing. Starting now, Dr. Ashford.

Chase tells Finn, it kills him to see Willow behind bars when that SOB is running around free. Finn says Anna would have more insight, but she’s searching for Alex. She’s a fugitive, and Anna wants to be the one to bring her in. Chase gets it. It’s a sibling thing. Finn says the last time she went on a solo mission, she didn’t come back.

Franco asks Scotty what the problem is, and Scotty says he wants companionship. It’s easy to go to a bar and make conversation, have dinner. His trips to Vegas were all smoke and mirrors; they mean nothing. He wants what Franco has; Elizabeth and the kids. Franco asks if he wants Cameron now, and Scotty says, forget kids. What he wants is a girl who can knock back a couple of martinis. Someone who knows who Dirty Harry is; who Deborah Harry is. Someone who can quote a line from Jaws. Is that too much to ask? Franco doesn’t know why Scotty is talking to him. It sounds like he should talk to Ava.

Ava tells Jax the meeting is vital. What difference does it make if they reschedule? He says she runs a gallery. She must realize the preparation involved. He arranged for Sydney Val Jean, the New York editor of Crimson, to conduct the interview. She asks what kind of interview he’s going to get if she’s forced to be there. He asks Curtis, how much longer? and Curtis says, forty minutes to an hour. He wants to give his personal attention to Jax’s office. Ava says she left something in the restaurant, and has to go. Jax says he’ll ride with her. Curtis closes the door behind them, and begins looking around.

Carly knows Sonny is right. All those times they applauded the kids in the Special Olympics and their parents; this time it’s them, their kid, their family. She knows they’ve faced health issues with the kids before, and knows they can face this. Carly puts her head in her hands, and Sonny says they can. They just have to be honest about what they’re getting themselves into. There might be nights and days they can’t give their child 100% of what they need. Carly thinks he’s forgetting something else. How much they need this child, and how much this special child is going to give them.

Scotty tells Franco, there was a time he thought he and Ava had something, but it didn’t work out. They’re still friends. She thinks he should get a Ferrari. Franco says, classic red, and Scotty says he’s not having a cliché midlife crises. If he was going to do that, he’d be dating go-go girls. He wants to feel needed, like when Bobbie fainted. She collapsed, and he got her to the hospital. It felt good, like he was there for her. Franco says it sounds like Scotty needs to get out of the fast lane, and find someone to share an RV, who knows the words to the songs he knows, and is comfortable on the back sideroads he likes to take. Scotty says maybe he should date the voice of his GPS. Franco tells him, stay open to possibility. Life is full of surprises.

Elizabeth says good thing Bobbie saw Lucas. Bobbie says he wouldn’t let her convince him it was no big deal. Epiphany says, they’re nurses, and it’s easy to be dismissive of the tell-tale signs in themselves. Bobbie says, looking back, she was in denial, but not anymore. She doesn’t want to put her heart at risk or have another episode like yesterday. She saw Lucas and Brad with her grandson, and it’s all the reminder she needed to make her want to stick around for her family. Elizabeth says, and for them. She’s irreplaceable.

Stella says she promised Curtis she would get Jordan home to rest. She tells TJ to call the headhunter back. He’s staying in med school. Jordan tells TJ, neither one of them has a choice. Stella says, accept your fate. She looks at her phone, and says she’s got a message from the genealogy website. TJ asks if she’s checking her ancestry, and she says it occurred to her that she wanted to know her relatives.

Finn tells Chase that he and Anna talk every day. He’ll never trust a digital message again. Chase says after Finn got the bogus texts, he went off to find her. Finn says he was forced to wake up Cassandra. He never wants to go through that again, and Cassandra is still out there. Chase says he and Robert teamed up to rescue them, but Finn says, by that point, they rescued themselves, but he’s not going to argue.

Curtis talks to himself, saying, Jax keeps information on business allies. He looks through some folders. He pulls one out, and says, interesting read. The label says, Valentin Cassadine. He sees a folder for Cassandra Pierce, and says, what have we here?

Ava tells Jax that she promises to make it up to him for the inconvenience. He’ll get the interview of a lifetime, and so will his readers. She’ll tell them everything they want to know. He says she’ll have to reach for a better excuse for breaching the contract. She says, if he must know, she’s meeting her late daughter, with the help of a psychic. They’re completely legit. She got the idea from his daughter. Jax says, Josslyn? Ava says, Josslyn had a séance, and reached out to Oscar. She was convinced he reached back. People do make contact. He asks if there’s no other time, and she says she’s committed to the Crimson deal; it’s not off. He tells her, don’t be so sure, and she asks which he would rather have, a lawsuit or a cover interview? He says, she has him there. He’ll let her reschedule once, but if she tries it again, she’ll see him in court.

Elizabeth asks Franco if she’s interrupting again, and he kisses her. She says, whatever he’s working on, don’t stop. Franco asks if she ever stops and thinks how lucky they are. Some people live their whole lives without what they have; the feelings, and really seeing each other and not being scared. Elizabeth says she was thinking the same thing about Bobbie. She’s going through a tough time, and is going to need all their love and support.

Bobbie sees Scotty riding a scooter in the hospital (see link below for the explanation). She thanks him again for his help, and he says, that’s what friends are for. She says she’s going to need all the friends she can get. He says he kind of overheard Lucas talking to her. It’s not just about missing a meal, is it? Bobbie explains that she has type two diabetes. It puts her at risk for a stroke, heart attack, and other fun ways to go. She has to learn to live healthier. She wants to stick around. Scotty says it has silver lining. She doesn’t have to face it by herself.

Jordan asks if Stella got a potential DNA match, and Stella says they say that to drum up business. TJ says, not necessarily, but you have to pay for a follow-up. You can learn more about your background. Stella says she’s more concerned about where she’s going, not where she’s from. TJ says, what if it’s someone famous, but she doesn’t care if it’s Cleopatra. In their family, DNA means do not argue.

Chase wonders how Finn got stuck being involved in a criminal enterprise that had shady associates like Valentin Cassadine.

Curtis photographs Valentin’s folder. He hears Jax coming, and puts everything back. Jax walks in, and asks what he’s doing.

Bobbie tells Scotty that she’s feeling better, but Scotty says he’s not just there for moral support. She says, it’s too late for breakfast and too early for lunch. She has to do homework about what foods she should eat. Scotty says she doesn’t have to do anything alone. She says that’s sweet, but she has to go. He says, there was a time when they were more than friends. Maybe they can recapture that again in an RV, going down the highway of life. There will be holes and flat tires, but all she has to do is say yes. He’d get down on one knee, but he already is. Will she marry him?

Elizabeth wants to look at Franco’s new painting, but he stops her, saying she can’t see it. She says he’s in a good mood, and he says the first time they were supposed to get married, there was an earthquake. Then the next time, he was behind bars. The third time’s the charm. They’re finally getting their happy ending. She says they get to live their happily ever after.

Someone books a flight from Paris to Port Charles. Cassandra?

TJ encourages Stella to follow up on the genealogy. He says it’s fascinating what you can find.

Chase tells Finn that he knows he’s walking a tightrope between duty and his feelings. Finn knows it well. It’s not easy for him to balance life between the Hippocratic Oath, and life with an ex-WSB agent. They tell each other, good luck, and Chase leaves

Jax asks if Curtis found any breaches in security. Curtis says, there are a few blind spots in surveillance that he’ll need to eliminate. He’s thinking motion sensors. Jax says, he’s the expert. Whatever he thinks. Curtis says he’s putting together a proposal of the changes he wants to make. Jax will have an overall picture tomorrow. Curtis leaves, and breathes a sigh of relief when he gets out in the hallway.

On the phone, Ava says she’s running late, but they’d know that since they’re a psychic. Yeah, sorry. They probably do hear it all the time. She’s nervous, but she’s taking this seriously; she promises. She’ll come prepared. She takes a picture of Kiki out of her bag.

Carly tells Sonny, it’s like the like situation with Mike. It was a lot on them. Sonny says, there’s so much joy and love he’s given them. Carly says Sonny found Mike after all these years. Sonny says there’s been laughter and tears, and it pisses him off. He didn’t know Alzheimer’s would take away Mike’s defenses, and he’d see who Mike is underneath. He’s a good man with a big heart who loves his family. Carly says she loves him a lot, and Sonny says he wouldn’t trade Mike for anything. Like he wouldn’t trade what they had with Morgan. Carly says, at times, it might be heartbreaking, but this child isn’t a mistake or a statistic. It’s a gift. She has to believe that there’s a reason they’re having this baby, even if they don’t know what it is. They’ll believe in it together. No matter what. Sonny takes her hand, and says, no matter what. She says she loves him, and they kiss. She says she’s scared, and he says, so is he.

Tomorrow, Neil says he can no longer treat Alexis, Scotty suggests he and Bobbie get hitched, and Sonny tells someone they know what happens to people who double-cross him.

🚲 Scotty’s Scooter…

The Haves and The Have Nots

Jeffrey changes David’s bandages. He says he’s not as good as Madison. David should have him come back. He’s not a nurse. David says he’s fine, but Jeffrey says it wasn’t Madison’s fault; it was his, so let him come back. Jeffrey offers to call, and David says, tomorrow. He says Madison seems to like Jeffrey. Does Jeffrey like him? Jeffrey says, he’s okay, and David says he’d rather see Jeffrey with somebody like Madison than that punk. Jeffrey says, mom took care of that. She had him beaten and raped. He tells David not to act like he feels sorry. David says he doesn’t, but Jeffrey says, Justin is still a human being. David says Justin hit Jeffrey’s mother, and she felt the need to teach him a lesson. Jeffrey says she almost had Justin killed. What does David think she’s going to do to him? She’s ruthless. David knows. Jeffrey asks if he’s ready, and David says he made a few stops. Veronica’s gang busts in.

David tells Jeffrey, on the floor, and Jeffrey pulls a gun out from under the bed. David pulls guns out of every conceivable place. About ten guys are in the house, and they shoot back and forth. Veronica waits outside in her black leather, and says, that’ll teach you to try to kill me. You won’t be killing anyone else any time soon, sweetheart, you son of a bitch. She crunches out her cigarette with her boot, and walks into the darkness.

Mitch goes to the Cryer house, and asks if Jim has the package. Jim tells him, hang on. Wyatt come down, and Mitch tells him that it’s his lucky day, and to kiss his father for this. Jim gives Mitch an envelope. Mitch says, $75K? and Jim says, as requested. Mitch says, good man. Jim wants to confirm that nobody is going to try to kill his son. Mitch says as soon as he gets the money to his uncle. Jim asks how he’ll know the job is done, and Mitch tells him, because he said so. They shake, and Mitch suggest he get that son of his some help. Jim thanks him. After Mitch leaves, Wyatt asks if he heard right. Jim paid Mitch $75K? That’s a lot for $5K of coke. Jim says Wyatt had a special problem, and it took a lot of money to fix it. Wyatt says he’ll get the money back when Jim dies. Jim asks if Wyatt thinks he’s in Jim’s will. Wyatt says, and mom’s, and Jim says Wyatt will probably die before they do at the rate he’s going. Wyatt doubts that. He asks if he can go out, and Jim says, tomorrow he’s hauling Wyatt’s ass upstate and into rehab, and he’s staying there. Wyatt is going if Jim has to drag him by the balls. Wyatt smiles, and Jim tells him, go to his room. Wyatt says he’s an adult, and Jim says, act like one. Wyatt pats Jim’s face, and goes upstairs. slamming the door to his bedroom.

Still in bed, Broderick asks where Kathryn is going. She says she has to go home. She wishes she could stay. He asks if it’s her husband, but she says she’s not worried about him. He says, then stay, and she says she can’t. She likes him. He says he likes her too, and she asks, why? He says she’s beautiful, sexy, amazingly smart… Kathryn interjects, and rich? and he says, it doesn’t hurt. She asks if he’d like her if she was broke. He asks if she’d be this loving and kind if she was broke, and she says, yes. He says, then yes; he would. She says she’ll be back tomorrow, and he says he’ll wait right there. She says, in this bed, looking like that? and he says, yep. I hope he gets out of bed to go to the bathroom. They kiss, and she extracts herself, saying, she’s leaving. He thanks her.

Veronica goes to the hospital to visit Justin. She finds his room, and says, damn, girl. He tells her, get out of here, but she says she just wanted to sit with him, and check on her handiwork. She likes it. He tells her, get out, and she says, or…? Is he going to hit her? He says she’s wicked, and she admits she is. She just wanted him to know that wasn’t official. There’s so much more to come. He says, please, and she says, the girl begs. He says, he’s sorry; he’ll leave Jeffrey alone. She says, that part was supposed to come before. He says he’s gone through a lot. Please. She says, please what? Does it hurt? She knows what they did because they did what she told them to. Justin says again that he’s sorry. She tells him, repeat after her, I’m sorry for hitting the queen. She’s not talking Jeffrey, but herself. Justin keeps repeating, I’m sorry, and she tells him, stop begging. He sounds like a little bitch. He says she ruined hi life, and she says he ruined his own life. He wouldn’t leave her son alone. Justin says he was just trying to love Jeffrey, and Veronica says, sick sh*t. It will get him hurt again. She can’t wait for him to taste what’s coming. She touches his face, then wipes her hand on his hospital gown. She’s going to let him heal up before the second round. She grabs his face, and says, next time he thinks about hitting a real bad bitch, think again.

Madison comes in, and asks what she’s doing. She says visiting a sick friend, but Madison says Justin isn’t her friend. She says, all queens are her friends. Justin says he asked her to leave, and Veronica asks if he likes Madison now. Get together, and leave her son alone. Madison says he’s asking her again, get out of here. In the hallway, she tells him to get fillers. He’s looking old. Older than her, and she’s twice his age. She says, goodbye, girl, and saunters off. Madison goes back, and asks Justin if he’s okay. Justin says, no; she’s going to kill him. Madison says he’ll let security know. Justin says he knows Madison hates him. He has every right to, but Justin just loves Jeffrey. He’s so sorry for what he did to Madison. He’ll never understand what Justin is going through. He lost everything because of Jeffrey. Madison is sure it’s hard, but Justin had no right to do what he did. Justin apologizes again, and Madison says, okay. Justin asks if Madison can stay for a while. Madison says he’s fine. Justin pleads with Madison, but he closes the door. Alone, Justin says he’s just misunderstood.

RK calls to Wyatt, and throws rocks at the window. Wyatt comes out on the balcony, and RK tells him, throw down the earrings. Wyatt does, and RK says, damn nice. He throws the package of coke up to Wyatt, who makes another great catch. Wyatt says, what the hell? They’re getting smaller and smaller. RK says if he’d throw money down instead of damn jewelry… Jim comes out and asks what Wyatt is doing out there. He sees RK, and asks, what’s going on? RK says he left something in the car. Jim says he’s coming down, and Wyatt tells RK to go. RK says he’s not scared; he’s a blackbelt in karate. He’s got this. Jim comes out, and tells RK, remind him again why he’s there. RK repeats that he left something in the car. Jim asks if he brought something to his son. RK says he was in the neighborhood, and was saying hi to Wyatt. Jim says he’s lying. What’s in his hand? RK shows Jim the earrings, and Jim asks if Wyatt gave those to him. RK asks if he can’t have ten carat earrings, and Jim says twenty carat; he paid for them himself. Wyatt yells down that RK stole them, and Jim says, call the cops. RK says, go ahead. Wyatt has coke in his room. Wyatt says he’ll say RK stole the earrings. Jim says it’s a fact that RK brought drugs to his son. RK says it’s a fact that Wyatt wanted him to bring drugs. Jim says if RK ever brings his son drugs again, he’ll have him murdered. RK says, fair enough, and Jim says, get the hell out.

Kathryn pulls into the driveway. She sees RK leaving, and asks, what was that about? Jim asks where she’s been, and she says, out with her men. Jim goes inside, and she runs in behind him.

Wyatt sits in his room. Jim asks, where is it? Wyatt says he doesn’t have any drugs. Kathryn comes in, and asks, what’s going on? Jim tells her, check her jewelry cabinet. Wyatt has been trading her jewelry for drugs. Wyatt says Jim shouldn’t have taken his money. Jim pushes Wyatt. Kathryn tries to intervene, and gets pushed back by Wyatt. Wyatt and Jim get in a mini shoving match, and Jim says, don’t touch his mother. He tells Wyatt, sit. For once, do what he’s asking. In the hallway, Jim tells Kathryn, calm down. Does she see what he’s dealing with? Because if she had been a better mother, he wouldn’t have to deal with this sh*t. She says if he doesn’t get out of her face, she’ll push him off the balcony. He asks her to please check and see how much jewelry she’s missing.

Wyatt hears them go down the hall, and gets the coke out from under his mattress. He goes into the bathroom.

Hanna, Benny, and Candace clear the table after dinner. There’s a knock at the door. Hanna says, if it’s Derrick, don’t let him in. Benny asks what he did, and she says, just do it. He says, she’s not telling him, is she? It’s Mitch at the door, and Benny goes outside. Mitch says Benny owes him. Benny says, what? and Mitch says, his damn life. He got the money; Jim paid him off. Benny asks what Mitch is talking about, and Mitch says he’s got the money in the car. Benny asks how he did it, and Mitch says, don’t worry; he’s got it. Benny owes him. They bro hug, and Mitch says Benny is the only family he trusts.

Candace asks Hanna what Derrick did, but Hanna says she doesn’t want to talk about it. Candace knows the feeling. Hanna hopes she doesn’t. Candace says, they’re all dogs. Hanna says, not all of them. That would include her brother. Candace says they take your heart, play with it, make you fall for them, and then they dump you. Hanna says, that’s not what happened. Candace says Hanna liked him more than she’s liked anyone in years. Hanna asks how she knew that, and Candace says she can tell. She’s Hanna’s daughter, and knows her. Charles told her that he wanted to be there for her. They stayed in D.C., and he took her to the White House. It made her feel special. Hanna says, he raped her.

Candace says, this is the second time it happened to Hanna? It happened a lot to Candace, since she was seven. Hanna says it was her first time. Candace says didn’t Hanna say Candace’s father raped her? Hanna says, yes, and Candace says she doesn’t understand. Hanna says, he’s the man who did it. Derrick is her father. She had no idea until she saw the tattoo on his chest. She says Candace can’t tell Benny, and Candace says, okay. Hanna says Derrick didn’t remember her. He went to jail, got hooked on drugs, got out, got clean, and changed his whole life around, but he didn’t remember her face. Candace says that was her father? and Hanna says, yes. She says she’s sorry, and Candace asks what she’s sorry for. Hanna says she didn’t know all that stuff was happening to Candace. Candace says it made her stronger. Hanna says, it made her evil. She’s not trying to go there; she’s just saying. It made Candace evil to every man. Candace says she could get them before they got her. It worked until she gave her heart.

Mitch tells Benny that he got it done, and Benny says, it’s a load off. Mitch has to get the money back to his uncle, and end this. He saw the news about Candace. Benny says, she’s inside, and Mitch asks if he can say hi real quick, but Benny doesn’t think she’s up for it. Mitch says he’ll give Benny a shout when it’s handled. Tell Candace to keep her head up. Benny goes back inside. Hanna tells Candace, don’t say nothin’.

Benny asks, what’s wrong? and Hanna says they were just talking about women’s issues. Benny’s not buying it, and Candace asks if he has anything for cramps. She’s on her period. He doesn’t know what he walked in on, but Mitch took care of the issue with his uncle. Hanna says they just have to give Jim back the money, and it will all be over. Candace says, yes, it will. Hanna says, it’s a great start, and Candace says, amen. Hanna has to get up early. She’s got a job offer, and she’s starting at the Artisian. She goes upstairs.

Benny says they were talking about that dude, and Candace says, no. They were talking about periods. He says he’s got it. He thinks Candace should keep the money, but she says, no. He says, it’s $8 million, but she says, it’s not worth it. He says, keep it, and she says, do what with it? He says it’s enough that she’ll never have to look back, and Candace says, just over her shoulder. What about Jim? He’ll come after Benny. Benny says he can handle Jim’s bitch ass; keep the money. She says she can’t. She’s done. He says if he wakes up in the morning, and she’s gone, he won’t blame her. He washes the dishes, and says he loves her. She loves him too.

Mitch goes to the Iron Bone. He says he has something for Vinnie. Fifty G’s for the Cryer kid. Vinnie says, he got it? He laughs, and says Mitch did good. Mitch appreciates that, and now Vinnie can call off whoever. Vinnie tells dude whose name I don’t know to get Will on the phone. They’re calling it off. Dude can’t believe it, and Mitch says he got that done. There’s something else. He slides another stack of bills over to Vinnie, and says, that, my friends is twenty G’s for Benny. He got that done too. Now call it off. Vinnie says Benny owes him five grand for being late. Mitch slides yet one more stack across the table, and says, that, my friends, is five grand. Vinnie sniffs the money, and asks where the kid got the money. Mitch says, good question. He doesn’t know. Vinnie says he’s been thinking he wants more, but Mitch says, ask again, and he’s calling Mama Rose. Don’t get greedy. He’s got the money; call it off. Vinnie says, all right, and dude dials. He tells Will that the Cryer kid and Black kid – Mitch says, Benny Young – it’s called off. Vinnie says, it’s done. Mitch has to get going. Vinnie asks if he doesn’t want his cut, but Mitch says, no. Vinnie says, it’s family money. Mitch says he’s good; keep it. Dude says he can’t keep running from the family. Mitch says they keep trying to pull him back in, but it ain’t gonna happen. He tells Vinnie to keep the envelope for his bank. Vinnie says he’ll be there waiting. Dude says, for Mitch and his raggedy ass car. Mitch says, one day he’ll buy a new one with his own money. Vinnie says he’ll be back. Dude says he’d better be. Well, he seems to be the only one not just hanging around the bar all day.

Jim discusses something financial on the phone. Kathryn is getting ready for a bath, when Derrick calls. Kathryn says she didn’t know he’d raped someone, and asks if it was only one. He says, yes. In his bedroom, Wyatt takes out the gun. Kathryn asks Derrick, why he did it, and he says he was high. He’s sick about it. Saying how sorry he is doesn’t help. She says he’s Candace’s father, and he says, oh my God. She says she’s sorry. She thought Hanna told him.

Wyatt approaches Jim from behind. Jim is telling someone they have to stay cool and collected. Where is she? Wyatt cocks the gun. Jim turns around, and says, what the hell?  Wyatt calls him a son of a bitch, and Jim yells, stop! but Wyatt shoots him, and he drops to the floor. Kathryn hears the shot, and says, what the hell was that? She runs out and part way downstairs. She sees Wyatt with the gun, and calls for Jim. Wyatt starts to head upstairs, and she runs. He cocks the gun. She stumbles, but keeps going. She runs into the bathroom and cowers, asking him, please. He shoots her, and she falls into the tub.

We hear sirens. George’s car pulls up to the Cryer’s house, followed by a squad car. George gets out, along with a couple of cops. Wyatt comes out on the porch, and George asks where are his parents? Wyatt says, dead. He brings the gun out from behind his back and holds it in the air. They shoot him.

🌴 Tonight’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills was basically a series of clips surrounding LVP’s lie detector test and Camille’s wedding. To make it seem fresh, they retitled it Behind the Episode 915. Obviously no recap necessary. It will be the same deal for The Real Housewives of New York City on July 4th.

What I Watched Today

(rambling, random thoughts & annoyingly detailed recaps from real time TV watching)

 

Fear the Walking Dead

We flash back to when Al found the maps. She’s being carried in the rain, and wakes to find her hands tied together. She sees someone in the same uniform as the person she got the maps off of. They light a flare. Al scrambles up, grabs her knapsack, and runs. When her captor realizes, they follow. Al falls down a small hill, but manages to get the knapsack open and finds her camera. A zombie toddles toward her. She heads into the creek and falls, but rights herself. More zombies start to come.

Her captor continues to follow her, and she continues to run. She stops, seeing a group of zombies, and shoots at them. Her captor knocks her down. Unmasked, the woman says, the camera, holding a weapon in Al’s face. Al opens the knapsack. and shows her there’s nothing but the case. The woman asks, where is it? and Al says something I can’t decipher, but it’s probably bullsh*t.

Imprisoned in a car, Al bites at her ties. She sees a field with barbed wire fencing. I wonder, what happened? Did her captor have to pee? Al gets the door open with her foot, and yells, hey, baldie! to a zombie. She tells him, come here. He gets to the car, and she keeps kicking him back until she can grab the piece of barbed wire stick to him. She uses to get herself free, then smashes his head in the car door. No good deed goes unpunished, even for a zombie.

Al wonders what the hell the woman is protecting. She goes deeper into the woods, past a curtain, and sees a clearing with a helicopter sitting in it. She starts it, but it’s out of gas. She tries to radio Morgan and Alicia, but as the radio crackles, her captor finds her, and says, get out. Next time, handcuffs. Over the radio, someone asks if ground 17 copies. The woman drags Al out of the helicopter, and answers. She says the helicopter needs to be refueled. She hears that in 72 hours, a reclamation team will be sent. Al asks, what is that? and the woman holds a gun on her, but doesn’t answer.

The woman asks where it is; show her and live. She kicks Al’s leg out from underneath her, and says next is breaking a leg. Al says doing that will kill her. She’s not telling the woman sh*t. She refuses to show the woman where the tape is, and says her friends are stranded, and need a ride. She must have lost someone, but doesn’t seem upset. Al asks if the woman is going to kill her too? The woman says she just wants the truth. Why is Al out there? Al asks, why is she? The woman says, the tape first, but Al says, no. The woman says she needs fuel.

The woman packs up a bag. Al asks where they’re getting fuel, and the woman says there’s a fuel drop. Al asks if it’s high up, and the woman says, it’s for a helicopter. Al asks, how high up? The woman says there, and looks at the mountain range behind them.

They drive, and Al asks, what’s on the map? What’s with the symbol? Why did the woman get out of the helicopter? She knows the woman doesn’t want to tell her sh*t, but they have deal with each other. So she’ll start with the basics. She asks everyone, what is their name? where are they from? and what have they seen? The woman is silent, and she says she has to call her something. She’ll call her Happy. She says, Happy, let’s get to it. Where is she from? Happy asks why any of this matters, and Al says, when they’re gone, their stories are all that’s left. Some rocks tumble down into the road along with a zombie. Happy tells Al to wait, and gets out of the car. Al also gets out, saying she doesn’t take orders from Happy. Happy gives Al her jacket, saying she can’t afford for Al to get bit. Al starts saying again that she doesn’t take orders, but a zombie is getting closer. Happy says, Al wants to get transactional? Everything she does is to insure that more stories are left after they die. Al takes the jacket, saying if Happy wants her alive, it will take more than a jacket. Happy says she’s got them, and bayonets each of the zombies in the road. Rocks fall down onto the car and bury it. Al says, don’t stay in the car. That rule has kept her alive before people started eating each other’s faces.

Happy says they’ll have to walk, and gets her gear out of the car. Al grabs her camera bag, but drops it. While she’s trying to grab it, and zombie pokes it’s hand out of the rubble, followed by its head, and bites her arm repeatedly. Happy says if she wasn’t wearing it, she’d be as good as dead. She digs in Al’s bag, and Al tells her, be careful. Happy finds a tape in a secret compartment, labeled, The Bog, but Al says it’s not the one she’s looking for. Happy draws her gun, and Al says she might want to watch it before spraying her brains all over. Happy puts it in the camera, and it’s Al from the last time we saw her, saying there’s a story there, and she’s going to get as much as she can. The picture goes blank for a moment, and then we see her hiding. She says the National Guard is at the East Bridge. The Army is there too. They’ve declared it a national state emergency, and cordoned off the entire area. She has to go. Then she says the Army is in one direction and the National Guard in the other. They’re shooting at each other.

We’re with her for a moment. Al says she should have stayed, and the film stops. Happy asks, what is this? and Al says, it’s not included for the transaction. Happy says she could have been killed. Why do that for a tape? Al says she couldn’t say goodbye to her brother, so she got his story instead. He’s dead; his story is all that’s left. Happy says, thanks for sharing. Al takes off the jacket, and asks why Happy killed her partner. Happy says, if you see someone wearing that jacket, be afraid. They’re a force not living for themselves or now. Al has her stories; they’re about making the past. They have the future.

They walk together to a clearing where there are a bunch of junked cars. Happy looks inside one, and picks up a map of Texas. She looks in the back, and sees all kinds of gear. She says it looks like they’re not the first to make a climb there. Al says, no roads are passable. People could have been trying to get out, and could still be up there. They need to keep their eyes open. Happy asks if Al is good with heights. Al says nothing, and Happy says, answer her. Al says she’s answered plenty. Happy says they can make camp. It’s dark soon, and they’ll climb at the crack. She tells Al, get some sleep. She’ll keep watch.

Al sits in the tent. Happy joins her, and zips it up. They sit in silence. Al says she’s never told anyone what she just told Happy. Happy says they’re the same kind of bird. Al had a job and kept doing it, and it mattered more than people’s lives. Her too. Al asks why Happy killed her team member. She says she was just doing her job, and didn’t mean to piss in Al’s. Al’s stories matter, but some things matter more to her.

They start climbing. A zombie totters back and forth beneath them. Happy says if they don’t trust each other, they’ll end up like him. Al says if she falls, Happy falls. Trust her. Happy tells Al, follow her lead. I’m not good with heights, and this mountain is like straight up, and giving me a queasy feeling. I’d be hanging onto my chair if this was on a big screen. The come up to a zombie hanging from a harness. Happy says they’ll have to go by him. It’s the only path. She needs Al to climb over the anchor for the final push. Al starts moving sideways, and Happy is pretty close to the climber zombie. Happy slips, and I say, f**k! She’s hanging by the harness, and Al’s anchor starts to slip. She tells Happy that she needs slack. Happy kicks out, and grabs onto the side of the mountain. Al says she’s good but the anchor has cracked. Al inches toward the zombie. I’m making all kinds of noises at this point, and saying words I don’t normally say. At least not to the TV. She grabs his tool – no, not that one, some kind of multi-purpose thing, and stabs him in the neck. She unhooks herself, and moves along the ledge. She can quite reach his rope, and I’m dying. She swings over, knocks him out of the way, and hooks on. Happy can’t believe it. Al says, you fall; I fall.

They lie down at the top. Happy says, he was her friend. Al says, she killed her friend? Happy says, they were doing what they always do; getting supplies. Get in, get out. Al asks, supplies for what? and Happy says, purifying water. They found a nuclear power plant, and took every precaution. It was timed perfectly. They were on their last run, when Beckett saw what radiation did to the dead, and he cracked. He was afraid he’d end up like them, and he did. She kept this a key to a cabin he’d always talked about. It has a view to the ends of creation. Happy says she sees that every day, and tosses it off the cliff. Al asks why didn’t she let him go? and Happy says, nobody walks away. let alone with the maps he carried. She hesitated, and thought of mediating the fear, but protocol is to extinguish threats. She shot him. Her friend had to die. Al says Happy wants to tell her everything, but that means she’ll have to kill her too. Happy says, no. She needs Al’s help. Al says if she leads Happy to the tape, she’ll have to kill Al for operational security. Happy says, yeah, she does. They look out at the view from the mountaintop.

At the fuel drop, they find a zombie. Al says he didn’t make it far. Happy tells Al, stay, so she follows. Happy pikes the zombie, and Al grabs her from behind and knocks her down, taking her weapon. It’s a combo-thing, with a gun and a bayonet-type trident. Al says she told Happy that she didn’t follow orders. She’ll hang onto Happy’s weapon. Her operational security. She asks if there’s enough fuel, and Happy says enough for the chopper to get up and get her where she needs to go. She’s not flying Al’s friends out, even if Al gives her the tape. Leaving her there would be a bad idea. Al says she’s got food and water; she’ll manage. They’ll go home. Happy asks if Al has every flown an L-3, and Al says she’ll figure it out. Happy says the reclamation team will be there in 24 hours. She doesn’t want to be anywhere near the helicopter. Just don’t be. Find another way. And even if Al isn’t giving her the tape, she has to destroy it. Al asks, why? Happy says, she wants an interview? Let’s talk.

Where she’s from, she’s not telling Al, but it’s something that will be bigger than her, Al, all of them. Al says, they’re the future, and Happy says she and Al are the past. If someone finds the tape, they could figure out the map, and it makes what they’re working toward vulnerable. She needs the tape. It’s not about her or Beckett, but the future they’re rebuilding; what they once had. Happy says she’ll die there if she has to, but if Al doesn’t destroy the tape, Beckett’s death and her death won’t amount to anything. Al wants her brother’s death to mean something. Stories matter, but they have to make sure there are people around to hear them one day. Al says she’ll show Happy where the tape is. She asks how long they have there, and Happy says, just the night.

The build a fire, and Happy breaks out the beer. Al says, they have beer where she’s from. Happy says she left that out. Al asks if they have a brewer. One of her friends is trying to be one. They share a bottle, and Al says, not bad. Happy says it would better if they’d met before this. When the sun comes up, sh*t gets real. Al gets it. They watch the fire. Al says, everything’s so ugly nowadays. This is nice. I say,  hmm… is that a spark between them?

Al wakes up, and Happy says, let’s go. They have to hurry. Al takes Happy to the creek. She says she had to be sure someone could find it if Happy killed her. Happy pats down a corpse, and says, so she put it on one of the dead? Al says, not that one. Happy pikes a poor soul struggling to come out of the creek. Al takes a bag out from the pocket of another. She gives Happy the tape. She asks if Happy wants to check it, but Happy says, no. She puts gunpowder on it, and lights it. They watch it burn, and Happy stomps the remaining flames out. Al says, that’s it.

Happy says, the tape is only part of the story. The mission… no one can even see them. She tells Al, turn around… please. She holds a gun to Al’s head. Al says however long it takes Happy to pull the trigger, she knows she tried to do something with the story. She gets it, and wants Happy to know that. She can contribute if she does something for Al. She tells Happy, take this, and gives her The Bog tape. She says, make sure the story matters. Al turns and waits to be shot, but Happy says she wants Al to live.

Happy says, don’t chase this story. Do not try to find her. She hopes Al gets back to her friends, and they get home somehow. Her name is Isabel, she’s from Indiana, and she’s seen the prettiest thing since the end of everything. They kiss, and I almost cry, it’s so touching. They walk out of the woods together, but go in separate directions at the road. Isabel kills a couple of zombies in her path, as she carries the fuel.

Isabel puts the fuel in the helicopter. She radios that she’s refueled, and ready to return. A voice says, the payload? and Isabel says, yes. Everything according to protocol. They say she’s cleared for return. She looks at the tape Al gave her, and sort of smiles.

Al sees the helicopter go up and out. She sighs, and radios Morgan. Morgan asks where she is.

Al waits under a tree, and Morgan and Alicia arrive. They hug, and Morgan asks how she is. She says, all right, and Alicia says they’ve been looking everywhere for her. Al says she got overrun by the dead. She ran into the woods. Morgan says she told them there was a story, but she says, no. It was just a weird lighting trick in the camera lens. Alicia asks if she saw where the helicopter came from, and Al says she tried to get in there, but was too late. Alicia says she’s just glad Al is safe. Morgan says they’ll find their way out – hopefully. It’s not just them. Al says, more new people, and Morgan says he’ll tell her on the way. Al sees the others ahead, and says a last name too fast and long for me to type. Morgan and Alicia look at her, and she says it’s her name. She had two Polish parents who insisted on double-barreling. She just thought she should tell them. Alicia looks at Al like she’s five, and smiles. They continue on.

Next time, all the kids join in, Dwight joins the group, and Morgan says they can do this.

What I Watched Today

(rambling, random thoughts & annoyingly detailed recaps from real time TV watching)

 

General Hospital

Sorry. I missed the beginning. I’m having a busier week than usual, and I’m wishing Tuesday was Friday. Anyway, nothing happens in the first minute that we won’t find out about in the next 59. Moving onward…

Dev brags about his exciting life in Turkey, and Josslyn brags about Sonny’s boat. Dev wants to drive one of the boats, and asks, how different can it be from driving a car? Josslyn tells him, ask Sonny. They go out on the terrace, and Sonny wants to introduce Dev to his father. Mike says he’d know this kid anywhere.

Mike asks Dev how he’s doing, and how’s his mom? Sonny asks who Mike thinks Dev’s mom is. Mike says his cousin Gladys. Sonny says, Gladys has a son? Mike says, Brando, but Sonny just said his name was Devon. Carly doesn’t think Davon is who Mike thinks he is. Mike says, it’s not like that hasn’t happened before. He remembers Josslyn though – always. They hug. Josslyn tells Sonny that Devon has a question. Dev asks if driving a boat isn’t like driving a car, and he should be able to pick it up with no problem. Sonny says, that would be a no, and Josslyn says, told him.

Kim thanks Cameron for the flowers, saying it’s thoughtful. Cameron asks, how was Kilimanjaro? Then says, dumb question? Drew says, not at all. It was hard and sad, but rewarding. Kim says, letting go is proving to be a challenge. Cameron says, Josslyn feels the same way. They all do, but her especially. Kim asks how Josslyn is doing, and he says, okay. She came up with the idea of communicating with Oscar’s spirit. Drew says, like a séance? Cameron nods, and he asks if they did it. Cameron says he, Trina, and Josslyn did, and Kim asks, did it work?

Bobbie asks what Julian was thinking, destroying Wiley’s records? Julian says Lucas asked him to protect Wiley, and Bobbie says, so he did something illegal to make Brad and Lucas lose their son? He says they’re not losing Wiley. Lucas came to him for a reason. He wanted results without asking too many questions, and Julian delivered. She says what he’s done is irreparable, and he might have lost Wiley for all of them. Scotty comes in, and asks if there’s a problem. Julian says, everything is fine. He tells Bobbie, he did what he had to, to protect his grandson from his biological father. Bobbie says, because he’s dangerous? Now Julian knows how she’s felt about him for the past five years.

Carol tells Michael that she doesn’t want trouble. He says he doesn’t want to give her any. He wants to make it better for her; clean up the mess Shiloh left her in. She says she has no interest in talking about Shiloh. He says his little sister was briefly a member of DOD, and he has an idea of what she’s going through. He’s guessing at some point she didn’t think she had much purpose, and here came Shiloh. He acted like her biggest champion, but then something happened. Kelly’s father wanted her out, and then OD’d. Shiloh was charged, and he reached out to her, saying she was the only one who could help him. In the car, Jason listens to everything.

Diane cites a case, and says the evidence was obtained illegally, and therefore inadmissible. The judge asks how it applies here, because I guess he never graduated from judge school. Diane says the plaintiff alleges that he was given birth records. If such records exist, they’re protected under HIPPA, and no one is allowed access to them without the permission of her client. Any records obtained are a violation, making the proceeding invalid.

At the Beecher’s Corners diner, Michael tells Carol, Shiloh was arrested and charged for drugging Douglas Miller (who I keep wanting to call Dennis Miller). That’s why he needed her help. He would have been found guilty, and the only way to save him was if a brave person took responsibility. So she sacrificed for the greater good of the group, and had Shiloh’s utmost gratitude and trust. How is he doing so far? She tells him when he says it out loud, she sounds like a sucker, doesn’t she?

Diane makes a motion to dismiss, but Zara says, the welfare of the child takes precedence. She cites a case, but Diane says the case doesn’t apply. To use it, the child would have to be in imminent physical danger. There’s a mountain of legal precedents and numerous Supreme Court hearings that state the fruit from a poisonous tree is inadmissible. The judge says if there’s the slightest chance the child is in jeopardy, they’ll proceed. He orders Willow to turn over the information. He’s just not very good as a judge. You’d think he’d actually want to find out first if there’s imminent danger to the child. Once the records are released, it’s not like he can take it back.

Scotty tells Julian, calm down. Julian says Bobbie is the one throwing a fit in his pub. Bobbie says Julian and Lucas might share blood, but he’s no more a parent than Wiley’s biological father. She tells him, stay away from anything Wiley. Julian says, thank God he doesn’t have to listen to her anymore. He starts to walk out, and Scotty asks if Bobbie is okay, telling her to sit down. Bobbie says, Julian makes her blood boil, and she collapses.

Cameron tells Kim, at first there was nothing. Then they were just talking, laughing, and telling funny stories, when they thought Oscar was there. Drew asks what made them think that, and Cameron explains about the water rippling. Drew hopes they got comfort, and Cameron says they did. He did hopes Drew and Kim did too. He has to get back garbage duty, and Kim thanks him again. After Cameron leaves, Drew tells Kim that’s a new one for him; it’s a bit intense. Kim says, everyone is trying to keep Oscar alive in their own way. Let’s do it. Let’s keep Oscar alive.

Carly asks Josslyn what she’s doing, and Josslyn thinks she might go to the park. Carly suggests she take Dev. Josslyn is sure he has plans, but he says he doesn’t. She tells him the park will be boring after Ankara, but he says he’s open-minded. They leave, and Carly tells Sonny that she thinks she likes Dev. Sonny says, good. He thinks he might have found a way for Dev to stick around. Mike looks at his tablet, and laughs.

Mike says, they don’t make TV like they used to. Sonny asks what Gladys’s last name is, and Mike says, Corbin, unless she’s changed it. Brando’s dad was a deadbeat, and didn’t stick around. Not that he has any room to talk. Carly says, that’s water under the bridge, remember? He says she’s asking him? Sonny asks if Mike knows where she lives now, and Mike says the last he heard, she was in Connecticut. But speaking of marriage, he and Yvonne talked this over, and they were hoping Sonny and Carly would stand up for them at their wedding.

At the park, Josslyn says she’ll text a friend who might want to meet them, and realizes she doesn’t have her phone. Dev says, this phone? showing it to her. She asks, did he pickpocket her? and he says he’s just proving a point. She says, that he’s an ass? He says, that she should be more careful with her personal security. She says, it doesn’t apply, coming from the guy who robbed her. Cameron appears, and asks if this guy robbed her.

Kim and Drew have some wine after dinner. Drew is liking it, and Kim tells him that they found the wine together. They went to a vineyard in Napa, and took a case home. Drew says, good for them. She made his favorite meal, and served his favorite wine. What’s going on?

Michael says Carol believed in Shiloh, and he said he believed in her. Then, he betrayed her. Carol tells him, Harmony said Shiloh wanted to see her, so she went. It was upsetting to see his spirit and energy languishing behind bars. He asked if she was willing to help, and she said of course. She would do anything. Then Shiloh laid it out, exactly as Michael pictured. He said she’d be saving him, his mission, and every single person he could help. So she confessed. Michael says he’s sorry. She says they didn’t have any proof. Why did he make her do it? Michael says, because Shiloh killed Douglas Miller.

Diane tells the judge, with all due respect, this is a blatant violation of her client’s rights, and she’s going to instruct Willow not to answer their questions. Zara says Willow can’t, but Diane can. If an attorney’s actions affect the case, they can be held to answer. She cites a case, and Diane says, that was a real estate transaction. They can’t compare the two. This entire process is subject to appeal. The judge says, it’s within the plaintiff’s rights. Today, Diane is in his courtroom, and today she’ll answer his questions.

Carol tells Michael that Douglas OD’d; Shiloh would never do something like that. Michael says, Kelly (aka Willow) was Shiloh’s favorite, and he didn’t want to lose her. Carol says, he didn’t want to lose any members, but Michael says, Kelly was a special case. Imagine Kelly’s father wanting to pry her out of DOD. The same night Kelly was supposed to meet with him, Shiloh held her initiation, so she was completely occupied. It was the perfect opportunity for him to kill her father. Carly says, oh my God. Michael says, he couldn’t risk losing his prize student. He had Carol take the fall. Carol asks why he’s telling her now. It’s too late to fix it. Michael says, come with him. Tell what she knows on record, and they might reopen the case. They’ll find out it’s Shiloh, not her, that should have been behind bars, and her record will be clean. She says, no one will believe her, but he says, Shiloh is making mistakes, and more evidence exists than he’s had the ability to cover up. He gives her his card, and tells her, look him up online. He has the best lawyer in the state, and she’s Carol’s if she wants. It’s time to stop Shiloh from inflicting misery, and she can make it happen.

The judge asks if Diane didn’t represent Willow in the adoption? She says, it’s attorney/client privilege. He says he’ll cite her for contempt. She says, obviously she’ll be going to jail, but unlike him, she knows her client’s rights and will continue to fight, no matter how many obstacles or bogus precedents are thrown her way. Let the chips fall where they may. Willow gets up. Diane tries to stop her, but she says she wants to say it. She had a baby, but Shiloh will never find him. Shiloh smirks.

Bobbie says she’s fine, but Scotty say, tell someone who didn’t see her faint. He tells Lucas that she passed out. Bobbie says she skipped breakfast, and the day got away. She’s okay. She’ll just get a granola bar, and get back to work. Lucas wants to check her out, but she asks if he shouldn’t be focused on Brad. He says, Brad went home to rest. He’s fine; she passed out. He insists, and Bobbie says, all right.  

Josslyn says Dev picked her pocket. Cameron says, what the hell? and Dev says, as a friend. Cameron says Josslyn knows him? and Josslyn says he’s staying with them. Cameron is confused, and Dev says he was teaching her a lesson; showing her to be more careful with her personal belongings. Josslyn says she felt nothing, and Cameron says, that’s so cool. Can Dev teach him? Josslyn is like, what? and Cameron says he feels it would be a good life skill. Josslyn says not if he winds up in jail. Cameron says Josslyn’s phone is always hanging out, along with her wallet. She storms off, and Dev asks if she wants her phone back. She says she’ll buy a new one. Cameron tells Dev that she’ll forgive him – eventually.

Sonny tells Mike, sure, and Carly says they’d be honored. Mike goes to call Yvonne with the news. He can’t wait. Carly tells Sonny that Mike is so cute and happy. She asks what he’s cooking up, asking about Gladys. Sonny says, her son could be Dev’s age. Carly asks if he’s passing Dev off as a family member, and he says, the timing works. He could be related. Carly asks if he thinks it’s a good idea. He says he thought she liked Dev. She does, but says Sonny has a lot on his plate. He says he’ll make a phone call, and see where it goes. Mike comes back, and says Yvonne thanks them from the bottom of her heart. Sonny asks if Mike is ready to go. Mike says they have celebrating to do.

Cameron and Dev find Josslyn, and Dev gives her back her phone, telling her, take more care this time. She looks at the plaque for Oscar’s Meadow, and Cameron explains Oscar was a friend who recently passed from a brain tumor. Dev is sorry for their loss. Cameron says Oscar’s family dedicated this part of the park to him, and they all spread wildflower seeds. Dev says, looks like they grew. Cameron says they miss him, and Josslyn says Cameron believes he was there, right? Cameron explains to Dev, when they were laughing and telling stories, the saw the water move, and it felt like him. Dev says he’s sorry, but it wasn’t their friend. Josslyn says they heard something, but Dev says it was him. He ran into some chairs on the patio, and he hid when she came out. Josslyn says he might have been there, but Oscar was too. The water moved. Dev says, people die all the time. It’s not fair, but it’s final. Dead is just dead.

Kim tells Drew that she’s sorry. it seems strange and out of the blue, but being close to him makes her feel close to Oscar. Drew says he’s all for remembering their son. Kim says when he was deployed, he left her the greatest gift; their child. Oscar made her think of him. He reminded her every day. Drew says sometimes when she moves a certain way, makes a gesture, or says something, he sees Oscar. She says she sees him in Drew too. All the time.

Lucas asks Bobbie if anything happened before she fainted. Was she stressed or confused? Bobbie guesses she was pretty thirsty, and Lucas says she seems dehydrated. He’ll run an IV with fluids. She says it’s not necessary, and he says it’s cute how she thinks it’s a suggestion. He asks if she’s felt tired or run down lately, but she says, nothing out of the norm. She’s been a little groggy now and then, but she’s had additional work in the past month. He asks about headaches, and she says, now and then. When she’s trying too hard to focus, her vision is a little blurry, but she made an appointment with an ophthalmologist. He says he’s taking some blood and running a test. She says, hemoglobin A1C? Does he think she has diabetes?

Michael introduces Carol to Jason. He says she’s going on record, and tells Jason to take her back to Port Charles. She asks why she can’t go with Michael, but he says Jason will get her there and under protection. The sooner she’s out of there, the better. Jason says she’s helping people he cares about. He won’t let anything happen to her. She says it’s not that she doesn’t want help. She has an ankle monitor; she can’t leave town. Jason says, don’t worry. He has a way around it.

Willow tells Shiloh that he’s evil and vile, with his disgusting smug smirk. He even has the judge fooled with his lies. The only thing he cares about is himself. He’ll never get near her child. No matter how many documents he steals, lies he tells, or people he drugs, she’ll never let him. I’ve often wondered why this actor was hired to play Shiloh, since I don’t find him particularly compelling. But now I know. It’s for his smirk. He smirks even better than Griff looked worried. Like he’s doing right now. I’m sure I speak for everyone when I say I’d like nothing better than to wipe it off his face.

Sonny comes back from dropping Mike off, and tells Carly, good news. Brick found Gladys in Bridgeport. She wonders if they shouldn’t send Dev back to Turkey, and get him a visa. Sonny had Jax deported, so he obviously has a connection in immigration. Why wouldn’t it work the other way. It just has to be the legal way. Sonny says if they ship Dev off and hope everything works out, he’ll bolt. Carly says he’s probably right. He says Dev got himself this far. The rest is up to them.

Josslyn thanks Dev for his incredible insight. She knows Oscar is dead. She lived through it. The last thing she needs is a lecture from him. He tells her that he’s sorry, and she says, apology accepted. Cameron asks if they’re just going to keep staring at each other, or are they going to help pick up garbage.

Drew and Kim listen to the CD that Oscar found. He says she could have found a better hiding place. She says Oscar was the most curious person she’s ever met. It was only a matter of time before he found it. She says this was Drew’s favorite song. Technically, their favorite. He says, as in our song? Like to dance to? She says, among other things, and kisses him. Yep. Saw that coming.

Lucas tells Bobbie to go home and get some rest. She appreciates the concern, but thinks it’s excessive. She went through this with him when he was younger, and she says she thinks he’s projecting. She’s just wiped out. If she feels better, she’ll know it’s a reminder to slow down and take better care of herself. Lucas leaves, and Bobbie tells Scotty not to lecture her about her health. He suggest she indulge her son. Hopefully he’s wrong, but while she’s waiting, he’s here for her if she needs him.

Willow tells Shiloh, go ahead. Lie to the judge; the world. He’s not getting what he wants. Zara asks how much more they have to listen to, and tells Diane to get her client under control. Diane tells Willow to sit down and let her handle it. The judge says Willow admits to having had a baby. She’s to turn the records over to the plaintiff. She says, no. She won’t do it. He says she’s in contempt, and tells the bailiff to take her into custody. Chase gets up, and says he’s with the PCPD. He can handle it. Shiloh says Chase is Willow’s boyfriend; he can’t do this. The judge says it’s his courtroom; his rules. He tells Chase, take it from here, and Chase reads Willow her rights. He cuffs her, and she says she understands.

Michael sits in the diner with the monitor. Jason and Carol are ready to leave, but a voice says they thought the plates looked familiar. It’s the cop who arrested Jason last time, and he says they meet again, which confuses him. He told Jason not to come back to Beecher’s Corners.

Tomorrow, Curtis wants to dissolve his partnership with Sam, Lucas has the results of Bobbie’s blood test, and Zara asks if Shiloh wants a hearing or not.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

Provence, France. Teddi struggles awake, and calls for Kyle, who says she can’t live her life today. Teddi kind of remembers dinner. She thinks she was crying. Kyle says she was. Teddi asks if there was a fight. Kyle tells her, Erika asked if they were pushing her out, and left the table.

LisaR is at the breakfast table when they come in. Kyle tells Teddi that LisaR was her therapist last night. Teddi doesn’t remember dinner. In her interview, LisaR is amazed that Teddi is upright; never mind remembering dinner. She tells Teddi that she said Erika wasn’t having fun, and didn’t want to be with them. Teddi says, she didn’t say that, but LisaR says she did. Kyle says she couldn’t articulate what she wanted to say, so she let it go. In Kyle’s interview, she says when she’s with Erika, she sometimes wonders if Erika is in a in bad mood. LisaR thinks Teddi should talk to Erika. Dorit comes in, and asks if they’re doing archery today. Teddi has anxiety.

In her interview, Erika is disappointed in Kyle and Teddi. She’s been a good friend to them, and what happened last night was not cool. LisaR goes to Erika’s room, and tells her that Teddi doesn’t remember anything she said. She thinks Teddi is probably going to talk to Erika, and thought she should give Erika a warning. She says Teddi and Kyle feel bad, and Erika says she’s sure they’re devastated, with just the slightest hint of sarcasm.

The women gather outside. In her interview, Dorit says when they’re in a group, and there are unresolved feelings, or something hasn’t been said, she can feel it. They meet instructor Thierry, and get set up with bows. Dorit doesn’t know if she wants to stand next to Kyle. Kyle says that’s probably a bad idea, and if anyone is mad at her, stand the other way. I can safely say I’m better at archery than all off them. Put together. LisaR can’t even hit the target, and in her interview, she says she’s athletic, and it’s pissing her off. She’s not stopping until she hits it. Finally, she manages to get an arrow within the circle.

Kyle wants to talk to Erika, but not at the same time Teddi is. Teddi tells Erika that she wants to start by apologizing. She’s taking responsibility for her bad behavior. When Erika is with her one on one, she’s beyond kind and a good friend, but sometimes when they’re in a group, Teddi feels a disconnect; like Erika is irritated. She takes it on, and feels uncomfortable. In Erika’s interview, she doesn’t know if Teddi is apologizing or blaming her for the behavior. Erika says she wondered who was this Teddi. Teddi says, at the end of the day, she was drinking and said a bunch of sh*t. Erika says, drunks and children tell the truth. In her interview, Erika believes internally, Teddi thinks she’s fake. We flash back to Teddi saying that Erika seems fake with her friendships. Teddi says when she feels Erika’s mood, it triggers her. It’s not personal. Erika says she takes personally, and Teddi says she’s sorry. Erika appreciates the apology, and in her interview, says she’s accepting it, since Teddi beats herself up more than anyone.

They come back to cake and tea. Kyle says she’s sorry she hurt Erika’s feelings. Erika says she did, and Kyle says she wasn’t articulating what she was trying to say. Erika has been good to her, and she’s disappointed in herself. In her interview, Erika says there are few people who have the ability to hurt her feelings, and she considers Kyle a close friend. She didn’t expect it. She tells Kyle that she was out of line. She thought they had an open and honest friendship. Kyle says she thought she was being honest, but it came out the wrong way. Kyle is sorry she hurt Erika’s feelings, and Erika thanks her. It’s time to pack.

Dorit tells PK that they had a great time. The group moved to a different level of closeness and bonded. Kyle shows Faye pictures. Erika tells Mikey that Kyle and Teddi were on a mini crusade for two nights, saying she should be mad about the way LisaR acted on Farrahween. She wonders if anyone has ever dressed up as them.

Dorit is excited about the Kitson windows. In her interview, she says it’s a landmark store on one of the busiest streets in LA. She tells PK that she has a concept, but needs to build on it. PK thinks she should reveal nothing in the window, saying he’s just giving her artistic ideas. She says she now has a Teddi swimsuit, and the Camille cover-up. It has holes in it, much like the things that come out of Camille’s mouth. In Dorit’s interview, she says after she designed it, she found out Camille was talking sh*t behind her back. We flash back to LisaR telling Dorit that Camille was talking about her. Dorit tells us, not knowing what she said makes it worse. She says she’s seeing Camille tonight, but she doesn’t intend on saying anything. She feels bad about Camille’s situation, and doesn’t think it’s the right time. PK tells her to be supportive and super kind, even if she doesn’t want to. Dorit says Camille is a cover-up with holes in it.

The women are meeting at a restaurant, and LisaR has brought bags of clothes for Denise and Camille, since they lost everything. The others arrive, and I wonder why no one ever asks for name brand liquor in their drinks. Is that just a given in their world? Denise arrives, and LisaR gives her a bag, Denise appreciates her thoughtfulness. (Just to be clear, I’m talking about a shopping bag. She didn’t just shove some clothes in a garbage bag.) In Denise’s interview, she says at first glance, it didn’t seem bad, but there was soot in all their furniture and clothes. LisaR says it must have been terrifying. Camille joins them, and there are lots of (phony) hugs. She asks how Denise is doing, and Denise says, not as bad as Camille. LisaR says, you never think you might be in a situation where you have no clothes – or house.

They order. Camille says, it’s so real; it’s overwhelming. She doesn’t know where to begin. They were evacuated, and then her assistant Scott passed away. We see clips of him and Camille. In her interview, Camille says it’s a great loss. Erika asks about the house at the beach, and Camille says, thank God, it’s all right. In Camille’s interview, she says she’s feeling homeless. It’s her main home (my italics). She says her daughter is getting antsy; she’s bored, and being such a diva. Her business manager is also out of the country. She thinks she’s cursed. Confucius LisaR says, life happens the way it happens. Her luck sucks. She says Denise’s marriage has been put through a lot. Camille says they had a rough start. She complains about David having to go out and get new ski boots, when she didn’t even have a coat, so she went to a consignment store across the street. She found a thirty-year-old Burberry that’s probably dusty, but at least she has a coat. In LisaR’s interview, she says, why would anyone have empathy for the wealthy? Damn straight. I wouldn’t mind a dusty Burberry coat. Denise says at least she has the financial means to rebuild. In Camille’s interview, she says Denise doesn’t understand. She’s lucky her rented house didn’t burn down. They toast to new beginnings. Not liking Camille in this episode, but cutting her slack because of the fire. Maybe she had sentimental stuff that was destroyed.

PK and Dorit go to Kitson. In her interview, Dorit says Beverly Beach is only sold online. They’re branching out, and she’s freaking out. She has a lot to do, and a lot to prove. She looks at the mannequins and thinks the scene is disproportionate. She’s not getting a sense of the strong vibe she wants. PK is pleased she’s getting involved, and she says she needs to do it herself with her own hands. She gets in the window, and moves everything around. In her interview, she says her friends are coming, and she wants it perfect. Here she is, putting out fires in the eleventh hour. That’s probably a poor choice of words. She tells PK, it’s already looking better. If she says so.

Teddi meets Denise for clothes shopping at BA&SH. Denise needs everything. In Teddi’s interview, she says, Denise is cool as a cucumber, no matter what’s happening. If she had 1% of Denise’s chill, she’d be in a good place. They look around, and Teddi asks Denise, what are the next steps? Denise says they can’t live in the house; the power lines are down. It’s terrible, but Camille lost her home. Denise knows everyone is upset with Camille, but she’s glad no one brought it up. Teddi says they all wanted to have a conversation with her before Provence, but not under the circumstances. Denise asks if Camille seems okay. Teddi has no idea how she’d be. In her interview, Denise says that no matter what the challenge, she finds something positive. Teddi thinks Camille is having a rough time; she can see the highs and lows. Denise wishes she could see that it’s traumatizing and devastating, but it’s also the opportunity for a fresh start. I felt the same way after being flooded in Hurricane Sandy. And I don’t have nearly as much furniture now, after realizing how much I had while throwing it out.

Denise wants to hear about the trip. Teddi says she was a hot mess, and a d*ck to Erika. She had to apologize. Denise tells her not to beat herself up about it. Teddi says she knows her limit when she’s dinking regular alcohol. Denise says, you can’t go sideways. Drink what you know. I hear that.

Dorit says she’s stressed, but feels good. Beverly Beach is taking off, and she’s excited for her friends to see it. It’s time to celebrate. She loves a reveal. The women arrive at Kitson, and fawn over the line. Camille is excited about having something named after her. Teddi loves her suit; it’s sporty. In LisaR’s interview, she says Dorit designing a suit for Teddi is the biggest olive branch she’s ever seen. We flash back to Dorit saying she named the pieces after women who brought something to her life – i.e. not Teddi. LisaR says maybe naming the cover-up after Camille signifies that she’s always covering her tracks. It’s kind of perfect. Camille says the more time she spends with Dorit, the more bad she feels [sic] about what she’s said in the past about her.

Everyone takes a glass of champagne and goes outside. In her interview, Kyle says the Kitson window is kind of a big deal if you live in LA. Everyone gushes, and I think it’s okay, but then she didn’t name anything after me. In her interview, Camille points out that they used garbage bags to cover the windows. Truth! Dorit invites everyone out to dinner, and PK says he’ll see her at home. They get in the limo bus. Dorit says she had a lot of fires to put out – no pun intended. Camille laughs, and in Dorit’s interview, she says Camille says it’s no problem, but it will haunt her. She’s sure of it.

They sit at a table by the fireplace. Erika sits next to Kyle, and in her interview, says she wants Kyle to know they’re good. Kyle says they’re having a party for the agency, who has opened their 25th branch. It’s going to be at a listing downtown, and she hopes they can all make it. The food comes, and it looks phenomenal. They toast to Dorit. LisaR says they’ve come a long way. We see a clip from early on, where LisaR asked if people were doing coke in Dorit’s bathroom, followed by one of them hugging. LisaR says, who’d have effing thought it?

Dorit says they’ve had certain things with a friend that they haven’t worked through. Geez, talk in code much? She asks if anyone has seen her, meaning LVP, and no one has. Kyle says, it’s really sad. Dorit says she’s been sent endless invites, but hasn’t turned up or shown up. She mentions Camille’s shower and wedding, and Camille says, she should have come. LisaR says Camille let her off the hook, and shouldn’t have so easily. Denise says this isn’t fair; she just lost her effing house. Why are they talking about this right now? LisaR says they weren’t going to bring it up, but Camille says she doesn’t want anyone holding on to anything. It’s independent of her house situation. If someone is hurt, she wants to know. Kyle says her conversation with them about LVP was contradictory to what she said to People magazine. LisaR says it’s bad timing, and in her interview, says she’s doing her best to be gentle. She didn’t necessarily want to bring it up, but Camille gave her the cue to talk about it. Camille says it wasn’t meant to hurt their feelings. She has to be more in the moment. In Kyle’s interview, she says there’s no middle ground with Camille. She’ll say whatever to appease someone, or come at them with a dagger. Teddi wonders what Camille is saying behind her back. In Camille’s interview, she says she’s fed up with Teddi pushing herself into the conversation. Camille is sure Teddi has said stuff about her, but Teddi insists only to her face. In her interview, Camille says Teddi has talked about certain ladies. She’s not being honest with herself. Everyone needs to take a step back, and think about what they’ve said about each other. Camille says, so she’s a flip-flopper and Teddi is a know-it-all. She’s been called worse. We flash back to Dorit calling Camille a c-word, and Andy reading mean tweets at a reunion. LisaR tells Camille that she said things about Dorit, and she told her to ask Camille about it. I notice that LisaR left out the part where she told Dorit that Camille said things about her. Camille say she had to get to know Dorit. She didn’t trust her. She didn’t know where Dorit was getting her money from. Dorit asks what she’s talking about. In Camille’s interview, she says, be careful what you ask for.

Camille says Dorit’s husband filed for bankruptcy, and we flash back to PK saying he’d been taken down. Camille wondered where Dorit got her fancy cars, diamonds, and glam. In her interview, Camille says Dorit comes across as someone pretending to be someone she’s not.  In Beverly Hills, they’re leery of people who live beyond their means. They might want to be your friend for the wrong reasons. Dorit says her husband has built two successful businesses, and the bankruptcy was ten years ago. Camille says PK owed money to someone close to her. Denise says, this crosses the line, but Camille says, Dorit came after her. In Dorit’s interview, she insists PK doesn’t owe any of Camille’s friends money. Dorit can’t believe Camille was discussing her finances. LisaR says she was vague. In LisaR’s interview, she says she knows what going after someone’s husband is. We flash back to LisaR throwing s glass at Kim. #WhatDidHarryDo

Camille says she knows for certain, and Dorit says don’t threaten her. Camille says she’s protecting Dorit, and Dorit calls her a snake. In Camille’s interview, she thinks maybe PK hasn’t been open about everything, and Dorit might not know what’s going on. She says he owes over a million dollars to a company. LisaR suggests she not say anything else. Denise says, just keep eating. Dorit says she’s done talking to Camille. Camille says she’s not lying. She didn’t want to talk about it. Denise says she can protect Dorit by not saying anything. Camille says, if she doesn’t, she’s two-faced. She doesn’t think the timing is great, and Denise says she doesn’t think what’s going on now is either. Kyle says, everybody gets hurt. LisaR says, stop right now, and Camille says she felt like she was being attacked. At some point, it feels overwhelming. Dorit says, it was so low, and Camille says Dorit kept coming at her. Denise wisely says, two wrongs don’t make a right, and Camille says, true. Denis tells her, don’t hit below the belt. In Dorit’s interview, she says Camille is vicious and mean. After tonight, she’s done. Denise says, this doesn’t need to be effing talked about at a goddam dinner. Before this, she had a nice time with them at dinner. The women start to get up, and everyone says, see you Thursday.

Next time, Mauricio’s agency party happens, Camille tells LisaR that she’s the mean girl, Camille tells Denise to back off (Denise tells Camille effing ditto), LVP is crowned, and Camille visits LVP.

The Haves and The Have Nots

Candace asks Charles what this means. He says, it’s not good. It means they have to put distance between them. She needs to step away from him. She thought he had her cleaned up, but he says, apparently someone is extremely pissed at her. She says, that’s a long list, and he says, a very powerful one. He’s sorry. She says he sounds like he’s done. He says he’s had to make sacrifices to be there, and she says she’s not worth another one. He says, it’s not as simple as that. She asks if this means they’re not dating anymore, and he says, it would be hard. She says there’s no emotion in this at all for him, and he says, this could get uglier. He’s so sorry. She says, it’s okay. Her mom always said, nobody gets away with nothin’, and it’s all come back to find her. It’s all good. She never once thought this could or would work. It was too good to be true. He says maybe in the future they could see each other. She tells him, he says that, but she sees the truth in his eyes. She should go. She wishes she could do the right thing, and say it was good and the experience was great, but she can’t. She’s so pissed. At him for giving her hope, and at herself for believing his bullsh*t. He tells her that he’ll get her money for a plane ticket, but she says she doesn’t need him to get her anything. The next time he decides to break a heart, make sure it’s not a cold-hearted bitch who knows how to get even, Mr. President Elect.

Charles tells Candace that she has to leave through the garage. In the trunk of a car. She says the only way she’s leaving is through the front door. He tells her not to make it harder, but she says she’s not leaving like a two-dollar whore. He says he thought he had it handled. She can’t go out the front, and she says, watch her. Oliver and the security guys come in, and Charles says he can’t let her do this. Candace tells them, move. Charles tells her that she has to go out the back, and she says, make her. She’ll scream. He tells her, don’t do this. She says he brought her there. She was fine before he came along. He says her life was a mess, and she says, a mess she could handle. She can’t believe he’s going to let this happen. He says he’s trying help. She says he’s helping himself. It was all about him. She tells the guys to move, and tells Charles, make them move. Charles tells Oliver to take her, and two men come alongside her, taking her by the arms. Charles turns his back, disappointing me greatly. Oliver asks Charles if she’s going to be a problem, and Charles says he can count on it.

David calls Jim, and says he did it. Jim says, did what? David says, she’s dead; he couldn’t help it. Jim asks where? and David says, at her house. Jim says, the FBI is looking at her house. David knows, and Jim asks how he could lose control like that. David says he had to do it. Jim asks where she is, and David says, in the pool. Floating. Jim says, just leave her. Get out of there. David leaves, tracking wet footprints from the pool to the front door. I’m no detective, but I’d say he’s leaving some evidence.

Veronica comes to, and says, son of a bitch. She goes inside, and says, try to kill her after all she’s done for him? He tried to kill her? She goes upstairs, saying, wtf?

Jeffrey sees Madison at the ER reception desk. Madison asks what he’s doing there, and Jeffrey says he doesn’t want to know. Justin is there. Madison says, what did he do now? Jeffrey says, it’s not what he did. It’s what his mom had done to him. Jeffrey got a call because he’s listed as next of kin. Madison looks on the computer, and says, he was just brought in. He’s down the hall. He asks if Jeffrey wants to see him, and Jeffrey asks if he’s okay. Madison doesn’t know, but Jeffrey can see him. Jeffrey thinks he’ll just go home, and Madison says he’ll page the doctor. He pages Dr. Harry, and I wonder if Debbie has taken on a second career. Madison says he was wrong about Jeffrey. He’s in love with Justin. Jeffrey says he isn’t. Madison says he thought Jeffrey was just trying to help, and maybe Jeffrey convinced himself of that, but he’s in love. Jeffrey says, so what? and Madison says he thinks Jeffrey needs to find out where that comes from. Jeffrey says Madison already gave him the psychiatric speech. Madison asks if it’s working, and Jeffrey says it’s just because he’s not into Madison. The doctor comes out, and I’ll be damned if she doesn’t look something like Debbie Harry. Jeffrey asks how Justin is, and she says he has several broken bones, his jaw is broken, and he was violently raped. Jeffrey asks if he’ll be okay. She says she thinks so; he’s pretty broken. She asks if Jeffrey would like to see him, but Jeffrey says, no. He just wanted to check. He thanks her, and she tells him, sorry about his friend. Jeffrey asks Madison if what they did is okay, and Madison says, no; it’s not. Jeffrey says Madison wonders why he cares. Madison knows his parents. He’s the only one with a heart.

Jim pulls into Veronica’s driveway with David. He says he’ll be right back. He goes inside, and out to the pool, but doesn’t see her. So he was going to do this by himself? David waits, looking distressed. Jim feels the carpet, and looks at the stairs. He goes back out.

Jim goes back to the car, and says, David drowned her in the pool? David says, yes, and Jim says, this pool? He says, yes, and Jim asks how long he held her under. David doesn’t know; forever. Jim says, Veronica was a lifeguard in college. He didn’t do a good job. David says, that’s not funny, and Jim says, he’s not laughing. There were footprints, and water everywhere, up the stairs. He didn’t kill her. She’s not there. He says David looks relieved, and David says he is. Jim says, no. Is he crazy? David says he was so angry he lost control. Jim asks if he understands what that means. That bitch will be on his ass more than ever. He hopes David has weapons at the house. He doesn’t think David gets it one bit, but David says he does. Jim says he’ll take David home. The crazy bitch is probably looking at them right now. God help them.

Oliver tells Charles that Candace is back in Savannah. He asks if he can speak freely, and Charles says, why not? Oliver knows Charles liked her. Landon filled him in. Charles asks if Oliver has ever had a woman who made him feel alive. Oliver says he has, and Charles asks, where is she? Oliver says they divorced. Charles says, so he does understand. Oliver asks if he wants it professional, and Charles says, yeah. Oliver tells him, make a statement saying he didn’t know what she did. Then he’ll have to trash her and discredit her. I’m wondering why. Wouldn’t it make him look better if he didn’t and said he feels badly about the whole thing? Oliver says, it will be ugly. Charles knows, and Oliver says he’s sorry. Charles asks if he’s wrong, choosing destiny over her. Oliver says his destiny isn’t about her. Charles tells him to prepare a statement, and he’ll look at it. Go easy on her. Oliver says he will, but if she comes out against Charles, the gloves will be taken off, and it could get ugly. Charles knows, and tells him, just prepare a statement. He asks if Oliver thinks Landon is behind this. He disappeared, and this happened. Oliver says, Landon went to New York to try to stop this. Charles doesn’t know; he’s missing something, and doesn’t think he can trust Landon. Oliver says, Landon is a lot of things, but not this. Charles wants to be sure. Oliver says, the plane will be ready in an hour.

Hanna tells Benny, now she knows why Candace isn’t returning their calls. She tells him, put on the TV. A newscaster is saying he doesn’t know how the President can be with a prostitute. She’s blackmailed some high profile men. Benny says, dammit. Hanna says, she’s not going to call them back. She’s got the money. There’s a knock at the door. Hanna wonders if it’s Derrick, and Benny asks, what did he do? Hanna says she doesn’t want to see him, and leaves the room. It’s Candace, and Benny says they just saw the news. Candace asks if Hanna is there, and Hanna comes out. Candace says Hanna was right; about everything. Benny asks if Candace is all right. She says she loved him, and thought he loved her, but her past came back to haunt her. Hanna asks, what happened? and Candace says he told her to leave, and that she couldn’t be around him. Hanna says, okay. She’ll start over. Candace says, with what? She doesn’t have anything. Hanna says she has to ask. Candace says she has the money. She called Jim, and asked for his account number so she could send it back, but then this happened. Hanna says she has to send it back. Candace says she won’t have anything, but Hanna says, it’s not hers; she still won’t. Candace just wants to go far away, and start a new life. Hanna says, what about her brother’s life. He came here again. She has to give it back. She has to start doing the right thing. It won’t do anything but add to her heartache. Candace asks, will it stop? She thought it would because she was going straight, but that’s how it started. He treated her like trash. Hanna says she’s sorry, and Candace says, he just switched up. Hanna says, sometimes you don’t know a man. You don’t really know him at all. Candace says, okay. She’ll give the money back. Hanna says, that’s good, and Candace asks if she can stay the night. Hanna says, of course, and Candace says she might need to stay a while. Hanna says as long as she’s doing the right thing, Candace will always have home with her. Hanna is proud of her. Candace thanks her

Veronica goes to the station, and gives the desk sergeant a list of her clients. She says they all made bail, and have been released. The judge signed release, and she wants them out now. The sergeant says, it’s a process, but she doesn’t care. He asks an officer to get him O’Reilly.

Wyatt calls the Artisian and asks for RK. He says, he doesn’t? He tells them he has RK’s wallet, and asks if he left a contact number. RK drove his mom home last night. He writes something down.

RK is out walking. He asks what Wyatt wants, and Wyatt says he has jewelry. RK says he has enough jewelry. Wyatt tells him that he has ten carat diamond earring studs. Those would be pretty big studs, but okay. RK says maybe he can do something with that. Wyatt asks RK to help him out, and RK says he needs more already? Wyatt says, quit judging him. RK says he needs rehab, and Wyatt says his dad is taking him somewhere upstate, but he won’t make it if he doesn’t get something. RK says, fine, and Wyatt tells him, be careful. His dad is around. RK says he’ll contact his boy, and call right back.

RK calls Candace, who surprises him by answering. He says he heard, and he’s sorry, but a dude is after her. He came to the hotel, and wanted them to roll her, but he didn’t. He doesn’t know who the guy is, but he’s after her hard. He didn’t give her up though. She asks how she knows he’s telling the truth, and he says he wouldn’t do her like that. If she needs anything, trust him; he’s got her back. She asks where Rocky is, and RK says, probably at the hotel, but she can’t go there. They’re crawling all over the place. They have surveillance of her and the President Elect. Everything. The s*t is hitting the fan. If she was there, they have it. She thanks him, and he says it’s a burner phone, and she can reach him on it.

It’s confirmed. The Attorney General’s name is Kyle. He’s waiting when Jim gets home. Jim says he knows who Kyle is, and asks him in. Kyle says he has a beautiful house, and Jim says his wife is in charge of the décor. Kyle says, Kathryn. Is she well? Jim asks if he knows her, and Kyle says, no. Is she home? Jim says she isn’t, and Kyle says, good. They can have a talk. Jim says they can also have a drink. Kyle wants something strong, and Jim suggests bourbon. Kyle says, straight. Jim pours the drinks, and joins Kyle. Kyle asks if he knows her, showing him Candace’s photo. Jim says he does, and Kyle asks, how well? Jim says that bitch kidnapped and blackmailed him, and currently has eight million of his dollars. Kyle asks how that happened, and Jim says, she’s a smart woman. Kyle says she’s seeing the President Elect, and Jim says he heard the rumor. Kyle says, it’s true. Jim asks if Kyle wants him to help protect Charles from her, but Kyle says that’s not his party, and once the current administration is out, they’ll appoint a new AG. He wants revenge. She robbed him. Jim says, welcome to the club. Kyle says it was only $1800, and Jim wonders why he’d go through all this trouble. Kyle says he’s doing it for the principle. He wants to know everything. Jim says he knows a lot. He has a problem that’s causing difficulty in his life, and if he helps Kyle with his problem, maybe Kyle can help him. Kyle asks what it is, and Jim says, his son. Kyle says, Wyatt. Jim asks if he knows Wyatt, and Kyle says he learned a lot about Jim’s family. Jim says, Wyatt was involved in a hit and run, and Kyle says, Lindsay Castile. Jim tells him, the local DA arrested them for hindering the prosecution and tampering with evidence. Kyle says he’s aware of that, but there’s nothing he can do. Jim says, sure there is. He’s the Attorney General of the United States. Kyle says he came to take down the President, not to jump into the local DA’s business. Jim says they can destroy this bitch, and take his guy down, but Kyle has to make his problem disappear. Kyle says, no way he can do that, but Jim says, sure he can. He can turn it into a Federal matter; say it involves civil rights. He can take the case away from the DA, and throw it out for lack of evidence. Kyle says, what about the DA? and Jim says, screw the DA; he’s the Department of Justice. They both laugh. Jim sees no reason why Kyle can’t roll everything into the same case. Kyle says Jim is a smart one. Jim says he’s a judge, and the DA has no evidence. Kyle says the Grand Jury just met, and Jim tells him, say it’s a matter of national security. Kyle says Jim knows his law. How the hell did he let a two-bit hooker get him in that situation? Jim asks, how did he? and Kyle says, touché. They have a deal. He tells Jim that his bourbon sucks, and Jim says he’ll break out the good stuff. Kyle likes the way Jim thinks, and Jim likes the way Kyle drinks. Kyle tells him, save money on somebody else.

In the car, Veronica tells a dude she has something else. She tells him to meet at this address tonight. He says, another beat down? but she says, nah. She wants every a-hole in that house dead. He says, it’s like that? and she says, yeah; it’s like that. Tonight. Be there. He asks if she’s sure she doesn’t want him to come over and do what they did before. She says they already did, and he’s not very good. Get out of her damn car. He says she’s cold blooded, and she says she knows that. She’ll see him tonight.

Kathryn invites Broderick in. He asks where they are, and she says, his new home. He asks whose place it is, and she says, it used to be her son’s. Now she owns it. He says, no way, and she says, why not? No one will find him there. Her husband doesn’t know she still owns it. She consolidated accounts at the bank. Broderick is hesitant, and Kathryn asks, what is he afraid of? Deportation? Her husband? Her? He says, the first two. No one ever done anything like this for him before. She says, there’s always a first. He wonders how can he repay her, and she says let her think about that. There are a few tricks he does that she loves. He thanks her. She touches his hair, and says, sure. He says he’ll get her a drink. Her phone rings. It’s Derrick. She says she’s been calling and calling him. She’s not home, but she’ll be there later, and she’ll call him back then; she can’t talk now. She says she spoke to Hanna. That’s why she needs to talk to him. Broderick brings out the drinks in his underwear. He wants to show her how grateful he is. She says, please do. They clink glasses. He takes her hand and leads her to the bedroom. They kiss in the doorway.

Veronica leads her posse to David’s house. She waits by the driveway, having a smoke, while they go to the front door.

Next time, the finale; Benny says he’ll handle Jim’s bitch ass, Veronica checks on her handiwork (i.e. Justin), Kathryn asks if Broderick would love her if she was broke, and Wyatt cocks the gun.

👡 I Don’t Know How Fashionable It Is…

But it’s definitely late.

June 23, 2019 – Daniel’s Plane Comes In Handy, Alas Adieu, Spotted & Triple Monday

Standard

What I Watched Today

(rambling, random thoughts & annoyingly detailed recaps from real time TV watching)

 

Fear the Walking Dead

Daniel listens to the blues. He puts Skidmark’s collar on, and tells him, let’s add to the collection. Skidmark takes off and barrel races some zombies in a parking lot. As they get distracted by the cat, Daniel stabs them in the head. He pops open the door to an empty store. There’s gunfire, and a zombie falls out. He turns it over, takes keys off of their belt, and says, thanks for the car. He loads the car up with supplies, and tells Skidmark, three traps to check, and they’re going home.

The record ends. Daniel puts his guns back in the rack, and puts away the supplies. He takes a page off the calendar, and sets it on fire in the grill. He puts a can on the grill, and heats up some chili. He puts the record back on. I guess he likes this song. Daniel eats, and shares his plate with Skidmark.

On the radio, Sarah asks Victor, what if he finds Charlie? but Victor says, he won’t. Charlie was at the stadium for weeks before they found her. Charlie sneaks around some cars, and sees a covered plane. Victor radios Charlie, and says, when he leaves, open the gate. Skidmark hangs with Charlie. She opens the hangar, and Daniel calls for Skidmark. Charlie gets in the back of Daniel’s car. He puts some guns in the back, without seeing her hiding under a blanket. He goes back in, and she tells Victor, he’s gone. Victor says, get out of there. but she says she can handle it. and gets back under the blanket.

Dylan looks at The Little Prince, and Lucy says she gave the book to someone his age once, and it helped them both through tough times. John tries to get June on the radio, but has no luck. He says they’re still looking for Shari. Alicia says she and Morgan are going into the woods; the web of the dead has to be on the other side. Dylan says, they’re not in the woods. Alicia says, they? and Dylan say they saw them when they first came and set up camp. Alicia asks why the kids didn’t tell them, and Morgan says they don’t have to be afraid. He shows Dylan a map, and asks where the camp was. Dylan points, and Alicia says they’re going to find their friend, and find the people who did this. Luci says she’s going to fix the CB, get Victor, and see what’s up with the plane. Dylan says he’ll help. The sooner they get the plane, the sooner they can leave, right? Luci says, the sooner they can all leave. Morgan leaves with Alicia.

Victor uncovers the plane. He says it’s not his color or style; he prefers a G-4, but she’ll fly. He’s going to load her up, and bring her to his friends. He goes inside to check out the controls, but there are none. On the radio, he asks where the six-pack is. Sarah asks if he’s talking about brew or abs; although he won’t find either. He says, the instrument gages. He needs them. He sees a note on the windshield that I don’t understand – something about canal 8. Daniel is on the radio, and Victor takes out his gun, asking where Daniel is. Daniel tells him, relax; he’s nowhere near the warehouse. If was there, he would have made good on his promise. Victor wonders how he knew, and Daniel says he knows Victor. He was right. Victor hasn’t changed. Sarah gets on the radio, and says she knows Daniel’s got a beef with their friend, and it’s justifiable, but why not give them the plane, and let them be on their way? Daniel asks who this is, and tells Sarah to stay away from Victor. He has a talent for hurting anyone near him. Victor says he hasn’t hurt anyone, and Daniel says he sent a child to do his dirty work. He tells Charlie, show yourself, and Charlie sits up. Victor says, if he hurts her… Daniel says he’s not going to hurt her. He’s going to save her from Victor.

Sarah asks if Victor is going to sit there like a turd in a toilet. He could be talking Daniel into giving them the plane. Wen says it’s hard to talk with your head blown off, but Sarah says that’s not happening to anyone. She asks if Victor is giving up because Daniel doesn’t think he changed. They need to keep cranking, and get that bear in the air. They need to get Charlie; and get everyone else. Victor says he can’t fly the plane without instruments. Wen says the instruments have to be somewhere. Don’t make him look by his lonesome. Victor laughs, and says, come on. They join him, and look through the lot and warehouse.

Charlie asks where Daniel is taking her. He says he’s not going to hurt her. She says he shouldn’t blame Victor. Daniel says he knew what he was doing, and Charlie says, he has his reasons. Daniel says she’s a child, and he knows better. She looks at a map that he’s labeled Collection. She asks if he set up the traps, and he wonders if she’s been watching him. She says, no, and he says he didn’t. She says he’s been disarming them: why? He says she asks too many questions, and puts come music on his boombox, placing it on the dashboard.

Dylan asks Luci what the book is about, and how can it help? She says, a pilot crashes his plane in the desert. He finds a prince who’s left his planet, and is traveling from place to place, Dylan asks why the prince left, and Luci says, to learn things, and meet new friends. Dylan asks what he what learned, and she says, to look beneath the surface, and not be afraid of the unexpected. She tells him that if he wants to talk, he can talk to her. He goes inside to get tape for her, and radios Annie and Max, He says, ollie, ollie, oxen free. Max asks if he’s alone, and tells him, be careful. He says they cut down more growlers by the gas station. Dylan says the people they met didn’t do it. They’re just trying to find their friend. Annie says, who did this then? In the distance, they see someone in a uniform and helmet dispatching zombies, and they hide under some bushes. Luci comes in, and sees Dylan just standing there. He says he couldn’t find the tape. Luci says, it’s in the back. Let’s go.

Daniel stops at a bodega, and tells Charlie, wait there. Skidmark comes with him. He looks into the store, and zombies press against the other side of the window. He tells Skidmark, this one going to be tricky. Charlie is there, and says he can slip in the back way, throw something like a can of artichoke hearts – no one ever takes those – and he can get what he needs while she covers him. That’s what she used to do when she was on her own. Sometimes she would use music to distract them. Except she didn’t kill people to do it. Daniel knows what she’s thinking, and says he didn’t do this. He inherited the warehouse from someone who did kill, so things could sit on a shelf. She asks, why are those things still there? and he says, it’s hard to find people to help these days. She says, that’s not true. One came to his door asking for help. Now go find artichoke hearts.

Daniel tries the back door. It’s locked, and he messes with the lock using a knife. Skidmark looks in the front window, and the zombies gather. He jumps onto the ledge, agitating them more. He moves to the other window, because the writers want to give me a heart attack, since we can never have nice things on these shows. Inside, a zombie sets off a rigged machine gun, and the windows shatter. The zombies walk through, Charlie and Daniel run to the car. Daniel calls for Skidmark, who jumps inside. He says, one day he’s going to leave Skidmark behind, and they take off.

Charlie asks Daniel how much ammo he has, and he says, half of what it would take. He doesn’t want to draw more of them. They can outrun the herd, but it’s going to grow, and he needs to stop it. He’s going to lead them to the warehouse, and pick them off one by one.

Alicia and Morgan get to where the campground is supposed to be, but there’s nothing. Alicia thinks Dylan must be confused. Morgan says, he’s been though a lot, and she asks if Morgan thinks he’s telling them everything. He calls Luci, and says they’re at the coordinates Dylan gave them, but there’s no camp, and no sign there ever was. They’re going into the woods. He says if John and June come into range, have them meet there. Dylan says, no. Go to the old utility road. Morgan asks, what’s there? and Dylan says, just go. Morgan says they want to make sure what happened to Annie and Max doesn’t happen again, and Dylan says, they’re not dead. They lied. He lied. They faked whole thing. Morgan asks, why? and Dylan says they were scared. He’s sorry, but they need help. Please? Morgan is like, dammit!

Annie and Max wait. Max asks if it’s clear. Annie thinks they left, and peeks out. She doesn’t see anything, and tells Max, okay. Release the bond. He lets go of the rope holding the zombie roadblock, but the first zombie turns around and knocks Annie down. A cluster of zombies looms over her, and Max pulls her out. They get away, but she’s limping, and their gun gets left behind.

Charlie radios Victor, and says she’s fine. Valentin asks where the instruments are, and Charlie says with them. Daniel asks if Victor thinks he would leave them where Victor could get them. Victor is begging him. Their friends lives are in danger. He asks Daniel to bring the instruments back, and Daniel says, they’re doing that, but they picked up some friends. Charlie says, there’s a herd behind them. Daniel tells Victor, make sure the gate is in place. If they have to, they’ll climb over. Sarah says, there’s a bit of a hole – about 36 feet wide. They had to break the fence to get the bird out of its cage. Charlie asks why Daniel is laughing. He tells her, he said he would help, and they’re going back like this. Instead, he’s putting their lives at risk, the same thing as Victor did. He stops the car, and asks if Charlie knows how to drive. She says, kind of, and he tells her to take the instruments to Victor. Take the plane, and go. Charlie doesn’t want to leave Daniel, but he says her friends need help, and they can’t be helped without the plane. He’ll take care of the herd. She asks, how? and he says the same way she used to. He gets out, and takes the boombox with him. He tells her, go, and she gets behind the wheel.

Daniel leads the herd, and Charlie watches in the rearview mirror. It’s lucky this herd isn’t too fast.

Victor says, Daniel just handed them over? She says they would have led the walkers there, and Victor says Daniel would have hurt them like he hurt Daniel. Sarah says they’ve got to get that bear in the air. Victor gets Daniel on the radio, and Daniel says he’s sorry about what happened. He’s sorry he tried to kill Victor. Victor is sorry Daniel is in pain, but if he’s putting himself in danger to teach Victor a lesson, don’t. Daniel says Victor still thinks it’s about what he did to Daniel at the dam. Victor asks, what is it about then? and Daniel says the same thing it’s always about with him – lies. Alicia asks what he means, and Daniel says, tell them how he kept Daniel from Ofelia. Victor sighs, and Daniel wants to hear him say it. Victor tells the others that Daniel got separated from his daughter. Victor said he knew where she was, but he lied because he needed something from him. When Daniel finally got to her and found her, it was too late. Daniel says Victor wasted time he didn’t have. He couldn’t tell her what he wanted her to know. Charlie asks what it was, but he says, it doesn’t matter now. Charlie says they can’t just leave him. Victor said he wanted to help people. Here’s someone they can help.

Max and Annie limp through the woods. Annie says they can’t outrun them, and stumbles. The zombies bear down on them, but Morgan and Alicia come up behind them, and pike the zombies in the head. Annie asks how Alicia and Morgan found them, and Morgan says their brother said they were in trouble.  Alicia says he was worried about them. Annie says they have no idea what’s going on. Morgan says they’re not going to hurt them, and it’s just the four of them now. Suddenly, a bunch of armed kids surround them, and cock their guns, pointing them at Alicia and Morgan. Annie says, it’s not just them. Morgan throws his stick down.

Daniel walks down the highway, leading the zombies. Victor says he’s sorry. He’s not asking Daniel’s forgiveness, just a chance to show Daniel that he’s not that man anymore. Let them help him. Wen says he’s been itching to bring down the hammer for some time now. They’re coming in hot. Daniel looks in the distance, and sees Al’s truck barreling toward him. It stops sideways on the road, and the gun window opens. Daniel runs to the truck, and Sarah says, now! Wen pulls the lever, but nothing happens. She says, again! but it’s the same result. Daniel bangs on the truck. Sarah opens the door, and kicks at the zombies, but there are too many. Daniel slides underneath. Sarah tells Victor, they’ve got a problem.

A flatbed truck carrying the plane joins them. Underneath Al’s truck, Daniel stabs zombies in the head, one by one. He’s lucky they haven’t figured out a way around the other side. Victor gets out of the flatbed, and tells the zombies to come that way. They move toward the flatbed. Victor gets into the plane, and starts it up. The zombies begin walking into the propellers, and get sliced up. After there’s no zombies left walking, the engine quits, and the plane is covered in blood.

Victor helps Daniel up, and gives Daniel his hat. Daniel says he’s not going to shoot Victor in the face. Victor pats him on the back.

Luci lifts the communications tower back up, and thanks Dylan for helping. Annie radios, and asks what Dylan told them. He says, they’re telling the truth; they just want to help. Annie says, that’s stupid, but Morgan says they can help each other. Alicia asks them to please put down the weapons. Max appeals to Annie, and she nods. The kids lower their guns. Morgan says he thinks the people who were there before, the people who scared them, are the ones who took Al. Who are they? The offer still stands. They just need to know where Al is. Max says they can help find Al, but they can’t leave. Alicia asks, why? Morgan says the people who are back at the camp are their parents, right? Annie says, they were, and Morgan says he’s sorry.

Daniel burns another calendar page, and heats up a pot of something. Charlie asks what Daniel was going to tell his daughter. Daniel says, every day brings a chance to start over; a chance she has to get it right. Something tells him that Charlie needs hear it too. She asks where he’s going. He says there’s a reason he’s been on his own this long, and he needs to take care of it. She asks if he wants company, but he says her friends need her. He tells her that he set the record player up, and asks her to look after Skidmark. He says they’re welcome to stay until they find their friend. Consider everything theirs, except this. He takes a cigar from Sarah, and says a friend wanted him to save it until things get better. He nods at Victor, and leaves.

Before going out the door, Daniel looks back, and watches them eating. Skidmark jumps on the table, putting his face in everyone’s plates, and Victor pets him.

Luci gets radio going, and calls Victor. She asks how it’s going with the plane. He says he managed to help someone using it, but in doing so, the engines were damaged beyond repair. He wishes he had better news, but they’ll find a way to bring Al home. Dylan tells Luci, the pilot crashed in the desert. How did he get out? She says, he fixed the plane. He put it back together, and flew away. Dylan says, if he could do it, so can she.

Annie explains they had weapons and uniforms. They saw two, but there could be more. Alicia tells Morgan, this place isn’t safe. Morgan says he and his son stayed after the point they shouldn’t have. Alicia is surprised he has a son. He says he couldn’t bring himself to kill his son’s mother either. She asks their names, and he says, Jennie and Duane. Max says, wait. He hears something. He tells everyone, get down! and they all fall flat. A wind blows through, and Max says, stay down. A helicopter rises above the trees. Alicia asks, what the hell was that? Annie says, it’s the people; they came back. Max says he didn’t think they would.

Next time. Al doesn’t know how much longer she can stay, but she’ll get as much as she can. Al kicks ass, but takes no names – only videos.

🎭 Parting is Such Sweet Sorrow…

I was saddened to hear Franco Zeffirelli has gone to that great director’s chair in the sky. Best. Romeo, And. Juliet. Ever. I also loved his film adaption of the life of St. Francis of Assisi, Brother Sun, Sister Moon. His work was incredibly beautiful.

🔎 Sightings…

Crystal R. Fox (Hanna, The Haves and The Have Nots) is playing Bonnie’s (Zoë Kravitz) mother on Big Little Lies this season. And just from hearing his voice for two seconds on the preview, I spotted Colson Domingo (Victor, Fear the Walking Dead), who will be Ali in the second episode of Euphoria.

🐒 Because One Wasn’t Enough...

And a bunch of monkeys should take your mind off of it.

 

June 18, 2019 – Margaux Says Goodbye to Drew, the News About Candace Comes Out, a Wine Tasting in France, a First & Already

Standard

What I Watched Today

(rambling, random thoughts & annoyingly detailed recaps from real time TV watching)

 

General Hospital

Josslyn looks at the glass of water, and goes back outside. She says, Oscar, is that you?

Julian says Kim wants to have a baby? She says she wants to feel the flutter of life growing inside, and see life with fresh eyes. She wants to feel that love again. She needs to be a mother. He could be a father from the beginning, and be there for the milestones he missed with his other children. They have so much love to share. He kisses her hand, and she says, what do you say, Charlie?

Margaux asks to see Jordan at the hospital. The nurse says she’s had a lot of visitors, and Margaux says she’ll just drop off some flowers. She sees Drew, and tells him she was on her way to visit Jordan. He says he just saw her. Margaux asks how she’s doing, and Drew says, she’s getting by. She says, how about him? She’s sorry about his son. He thanks her, and says he’s putting one foot in front of the other. She tells him that she’s leaving Port Charles in the morning. They’ll probably never see each other again, and before she goes, there’s something she needs from him.

Peter says it was a wonderful party, and Maxie says he deserves to celebrate his birthday. Lulu says she’s going, and Maxie asks if she has another date. Felicia asks if Lulu and Dante split up.

Rocco – who’s had a growth spurt of a couple years – comes into the kitchen with Carly. Carly tells Josslyn that Lulu is busy, so Rocco is spending the night. They just got back from the fair at Rice Plaza, and Avery is asleep already. Rocco shows Josslyn a pinwheel, and says he won it. It’s kind of old school, but it’s cool. Sonny comes in, and takes Rocco upstairs. Carly asks, what’s all this? indicating the table. Josslyn says she, Trina, and Cameron were just messing around. Carly picks up the photo, and asks if they made contact. Josslyn isn’t sure, but if they did, it wasn’t enough. Carly hugs her.

Margaux regrets how she treated Drew. He asks if she’s okay, and she says she’s relearning what her life looks like. She was lost for a while, wrapped up in DOD. He says he didn’t know. She says instead of getting straightened out, she messed up, and compromised her position as DA, so she resigned. Drew says, that’s a lot, and asks what she’s doing next. She tells him, criminal defense attorney, and he says, the dark side. She says maybe what she did in Port Charles was the dark side. She’s not proud of doing whatever she could to bring Sonny down, and stealing the flashdrive. He says she gave it back, but she says she used him. She doesn’t like herself for that, and hopes he forgives her.

Julian tells Kim that he has a sketchy reputation as a father. Kim says he’s a different man now. He says it would be nice, not jumping through hoops just to take his kid to the park or be with them on holidays. Kim says they’ll be there together. Julian says it could be the best thing that’s ever happened to him. Kim suggests they create a family together.

Finn thinks perhaps they don’t need to bombard Lulu with personal questions. Felicia says, nonsense, and Mac says he has a personal interest in Dante. He wants him to come back to work, and is putting in for a leave of absence when he goes into the PCPD tomorrow. He explains how he’s filling in for Jordan, and Lulu asks if there was a press release. Mac says her mom just asked him to step in. Lulu says she’s working on a story. There’s a guy catfishing women on a dating app, and he robs their homes while they’re waiting for him. There’s been a string of robberies. Mac asks if it’s been reported. If there isn’t an investigation yet, there will be one starting tomorrow. Lulu say she still has an article to write. Mac says, using herself as bait for a possible criminal? He thinks maybe he signed off too quickly on giving his blessing to Peter about Maxie. His judgement doesn’t seem to have improved.

Josslyn says she was doing what Oscar told her to; thinking of him at 11:11 every day (I was wondering what happened with that), but it doesn’t do any good. She just feels like she misses him. She looked up information about séances, and they reached out. they thought they heard something, like footsteps, but no one was there. Sonny says he’ll have the guards take a look, but Josslyn says, no; it’s fine. It was probably the wind, or her hearing what she wanted to. She doesn’t want them to worry. She misses Oscar a lot, and so many people believe, she thought, why not give it a try? It’s silly. She should have known it wouldn’t work.

Carly say what Josslyn did wasn’t silly. She’s coping with a difficult loss. Sonny says it’s not weird or unusual to want to speak with him one more time. Carly thinks it would be weird if Josslyn didn’t have that impulse. It’s important she remember how much Oscar knew she loved him. She got to tell him when he was present. They left nothing unsaid. Josslyn says, Oscar didn’t, but she did. She was asleep when Oscar left them. She didn’t even say goodbye. Carly says, Oscar felt her love every time she held his hand and showed up for him. Josslyn says it wasn’t a complete waste. They got off track, talking about Oscar and the good times, and they were able to laugh and smile. It felt almost good. Rocco runs in, saying the Yanks won. He wishes he could call his dad. Sonny thinks Dante knows that Rocco loves the game, and Dante loves him. Rocco misses him a lot, and Sonny suggests Rocco get in bed. Then Sonny is going to make waffles with whipped cream. They leave, and Josslyn tells Carly that she feels bad for Rocco and Dante. Carly says, whatever reason Dante left, she’s sure it was important, and he felt he was doing the right thing. Josslyn says, all the time he’s missing with Rocco; he’ll never get it back. It’s one thing you don’t realize until it’s too late. Time is not unlimited and runs out quicker than you think. Carly says, life does throw you some curveballs. She tells Josslyn that she’s been thinking counseling isn’t a bad idea.

Lulu tells Mac that Rocco is at Sonny’s, and Charlotte is at Windemere. Mac thinks he should call one of his associates in case of anything suspicious. Finn says, it does sound risky. Lulu says she’s not asking to be set up. If the date shows up, he’s not the burglar. Peter ask if she knows what she’s up against, and Felicia says Dante wouldn’t want her to do this. Lulu says it probably wasn’t her best idea to put her actual address in the profile. No, it’s not, even if it was a legit profile. She’ll come up with another strategy, but she has to get going. After she leaves, Felicia tells Maxie, spill. What’s p with Lulu’s marriage. Peter says she really is working on a feature story. Her editor gave her the assignment. Maxie isn’t thrilled with the way she’s throwing herself into it. She needs something more, and they need to work harder to bring Dante home. Mac says it’s his understanding that Dante has severe PTSD, and Anna made it clear that he needs to be there. Maxie says he needs to be home.

Drew tells Margaux, there’s no point in rehashing the past. In all honesty, he did enjoy her company. She says, in all honesty, she enjoyed his too. She let her ambition get in the way, and should have given the flashdrive back to him. He says she did in the end, and she says, for all the all good it did him. He says it’s sitting in his office safe. Once in a while, he takes it out, and holds it in his hand and wonders what it would be like to access his memories. Then he puts it back in the safe, and forgets about it. He has nothing to learn from it that would be worth what he’d have to give up. The nurse at reception overhears.

Kim knows she’s asking a lot. Asking him to bring a new life into the world, and be responsible for him or her. Oscar didn’t grow up with a father, but this child will have him from day one. Julian says, it would be a dream come true. She says, so they’re doing this? He says, no, he can’t. He’s sorry, but he can’t give her what she wants.

Kim says Julian told her it would be a dream come true. He says to have a child with her really would be. She asks why he’s saying no. Is it his relationship with his other children? He says, no. He’s getting along better than ever with Sam and Lucas, and Olivia is giving him more access to Leo. She says, so why? Is he afraid of his past, or that he might fall back into that life again? He says, that’s not going to happen. There’s only one reason; it’s her. She’s not ready yet. She says she is, but he says she doesn’t want just any child. She wants Oscar back, but no baby will ever be Oscar.

Drew tells Margaux, losing Oscar put a lot of things in perspective. He doesn’t love what she did, but he understands. She wanted to avenge her father, but went about it the wrong way. It’s done. Gone. Over. She gave back the flashdrive. There’s nothing to forgive, but if it makes her feel batter, he forgives her. He warns her though, extortion is not a good way to get close to someone. She says, noted. It boomeranged back with Shiloh. Speaking of which, what is his connection to Shiloh?

Peter says he and Maxie make a good team, but his limited experience with the WSB tells him that they’re neither cooperative nor transparent. Mac says, especially to a civilian, and they’d have to deal with the higher ups. Peter thinks they should give it time, but Maxie says Lulu is using herself as bait to lure a burglar to her actual address. She’s setting herself up to get in trouble. Felicia asks what they do, and Maxie says they have to get someone to tell them something. Robert walks in and asks what a guy has to do to get a drink. Or is this one more place where he’s persona non grata?

Lulu smiles at a dude in Kelly’s. He smiles back, and she introduces herself. He says he needs to pick up an order, and he’ll be right back. She calls Steve, and says her date showed. He’s obviously not the burglar, so Steve can head home. Is she stupid? He’s obviously not her date. He brings the food back, saying there’s enough to share. He says she looks like a sweet pot fry combo, and she says that’s exactly the kind of woman she is. She’s also not a very good investigative reporter.

Josslyn tells Carly that the already talked about it, and Carly said she wouldn’t push it. Carly says she thought Josslyn would be more open to talking to someone now. Josslyn says she is talking to someone; Trina, Cameron, and even Maxie. Lucy has also been very nice. She tells Carly not to worry; she’s fine. Carly says Josslyn has no idea how hard it is to be a mom, walking the tightrope between giving support and guidance, and letting your child figure it out on their own. Josslyn thinks Carly should lean into giving her room. Carly says all she wants is for Josslyn to be healthy and happy. She wants that for Michael and the baby too. Josslyn asks if she’s okay. Sonny comes in, and tells them, he hates to say this, but they have a problem.

Drew tells Margaux that Shiloh reached out, and said they’d spent time together in Afghanistan. He swore Drew saved his life. Margaux says he wrote about it in his book. Drew says he has no recollection of it, and has only seen Shiloh a handful of times. She asks if Shiloh knows about the flashdrive, and Drew says he does. She asks if Shiloh ever inquired if he planned to use it. Drew says he asked a couple of times; why? She says she has no hard evidence, but she got the sense Shiloh is invested in Drew’s memories.

Kim tells Julian that she’d never try replace Oscar. How irrational does he think she is. He says she’s the one of the most grounded people he’s ever met, but grief, love, and loss have nothing to do with logic. She starts to walk away, but Julian asks her to hear him out. She’s feeling emptiness in the apartment she and Oscar shared. She wants to get rid of the pain, and find joy in another child; she’s human. She asks why not help her? but he says, it’s not fair to the baby. The baby will never be Oscar. She just needs time to grieve and truly let go. It’s not easy, but he’ll be with her every step of the way. He’s not saying no, but he’s saying they need to wait. When she’s had the time to grieve and let go, they’ll talk about it, and make a plan to bring a baby into the world. He knows the baby will sometimes remind her of Oscar, but will never have to live up to him. They’ll have their own unique identity, and be appreciated for it. It breaks his heart. He doesn’t want to cause her more pain. Please don’t hate him.

Sonny says, Rocco refuses to go to sleep with the baseball glove Dante gave him. He wants to put it under his pillow because it softens the glove. He’ll have a guard pick it up. Josslyn says she’ll go, but Carly says they’re not finished talking. She asks them to please let her, and Sonny says he’ll compromise. He’ll have a guard take her. Josslyn says she can take an Uber, but Carly says, it’s too late. Josslyn asks them to stop treating her like a baby or a fragile thing that needs monitoring. Sonny says it’s probably under Rocco’s pillow, and Josslyn leaves. He asks what he walked in on, and Carly says, her smothering Josslyn with concern and love. He asks if there’s something going on. Is there something on her mind? She says, it’s about the baby.

Lulu’s date asks if she’s a Woodchuck fan, and she says her son is a diehard. He says he has a kid too, the love of his life. She tells him that she’s only there because she’s a reporter for The Invader. He says, cool. He likes their sports coverage, but admits to checking out Page Five. She tells him, what she’s trying to say is that she’s not actually looking for a date. He says they’re just sharing some fries. She says she’s not who she said she was in her profile, and he says, what profile? She asks if he didn’t request to meet, and he says, no.

A dude breaks into Lulu’s place. Way too easily. I could break in there, so, really?

Robert says he heard a rumor that a party was there. Maxie says there was, but he’s late. He hopes not too late for a drink. Maxie goes to the bar, and Mac asks, what’s wrong? Robert says he can’t put anything past his little brother. Maxie gives him a drink, and he says, here’s to the Bureau, who pushed him out the door. Felicia asks what he means, and he says they’re forcing him to retire. Mac wonders how they can do that after all those years of service. Robert thinks all those years of service are what did him in. They probably want someone younger and cheaper. Maxie says she knows he’s still useful. In fact, he can help her out in a big way. Does he know where Dante is? He says, as a matter-of-fact, he does. She looks at Mac.

Drew asks why Shiloh would care so much, but Margaux doesn’t know. He always has an angle; something to make things work to his own benefit. She confided what she’d done to Drew, without giving his name, and Shiloh was fishing for details. There’s something wants Drew to remember, or something he’s glad Drew forgot. Every time he asked, it seemed like he was fishing for confirmation. Drew thanks her for the heads up. She’s glad she could do something positive for him, however small, before she leaves.

Kim says she doesn’t hate Julian. She’s realized he’s very wise. Maybe she does want replace Oscar. Why wouldn’t she? The timing is suspect, but she can’t help the way she feels. He knows that, and he’s sorry for the both of them. They can talk about Oscar if she wants. Kim says he told her that his relationships with Sam and Lucas are improving. What did she miss? He tells her, Lucas and Brad are in danger of losing Wiley. She asks, why? Is he sick? Julian says, it’s not like that. There’s a custody fight looming. The birth father is suddenly in the picture, and he’s a pretty dangerous man. Kim says, that’s something, coming from him. Sorry. He says, don’t apologize. He understands. They all need to be careful, so he teamed up with Sam to make sure Brad and Lucas keep Wiley. Kim says Julian is a great dad. They would make the best family together. He says they still have time.

Maxie says, Robert knows where Dante is? He says, as much as he’d love to, he can’t revel Dante’s whereabouts. She says he owes the WSB nothing; they just kicked him to the curb with no notice. He says, orders are orders, and he’ll take their secrets to the grave. That’s the way it works. Maxie says, Lulu needs Dante, but Robert says, she needs him whole and healed. Until the process is completed, Dante is considered a security risk. He went seeking help for deprogramming, and he can’t undermine Dante’s decision. His phone rings, and he says it’s his replacement, probably seeking advice on how to empty the pencil sharpener. He steps away, and Felicia says, let it go for now; he might be right. Maxie says she’s going to check on Lulu, and make sure she’s not getting in too deep.

In the hallway, Maxie listens in on Robert’s conversation, and hears where he’s being held. Robert asks if they have any idea when Dante is being moved.

Lulu asks if the guy isn’t Timothy from the dating app. He says he’s tried the apps, and they’re not for him. She says when she smiled at him, he came over like he was expecting her. He says when she smiled at him, it made his night, so he decided to go for it. He introduces himself as Bryce.

Carly says she wanted more information before she talked to Sonny. She didn’t want to worry him for no reason. He asks, what is it? and she says she took another test, the MSAFP. It measures protein levels, and hers came back elevated. He looks at the results, and asks if it’s a problem. She says Dr. Navarro said they need more tests to see what it means. Sonny asks what they’re trying to rule out, and she says, it could mean some kind of birth defect.

Julian tells Kim that he’s sorry, but he has to close up Charlie’s. He asks if she wants to come, but she says, no. She needs to face the emptiness. It’s the next step in getting through the grief. Julian says, start small. He wants her to know he’s honored that she wants him to father a baby with her. He wants to talk more when she’s gotten through her grief and truly let go. Oscar’s heart is with her always. He leaves, and Kim wanders around the apartment. She looks at the picture of her, Oscar, and Drew from when he won the Ashbery Award.

Drew tells Margaux, it’s getting late, and he’s beyond jet lagged. She asks where he’s been. He says, Africa, specifically Mount Kilimanjaro. They scattered Oscar’s ashes. She says she’s so sorry for his loss. She’s sorry for a lot of things. He says all they can do is move forward, look back, and smile. She says, go Woodchucks, and he says goodbye. He’s rooting for her. She says, same here.

Maxie tells Peter that she’s got it. She overheard Robert on the phone, and knows where Dante is. They’re one step closer to Dante being home.

Carly tells Sonny, the doctor said, go home and take it easy. He asks how much time she spent on the internet? and she says more time than she should have. She scared herself, and stopped, then took the kids to the fair. She doesn’t need to drive herself crazy thinking about what might happen. It does no one any good; least of all, the baby. Sonny says, no matter what happens, the baby will be perfect in his eyes. He loves them both, and whatever happens, they’ll face it together. They hug.

Josslyn sees Lulu’s door open, and goes inside anyway. Again, really?

Lulu tells Bryce, nice to meet you, and apologizes for the mix-up. She has a phone call to make, and she’ll explain. He says, it seems complicated, and tells her. enjoy the fries. He leaves, and she calls Steve, telling him to go back to her house, and hurry.

Josslyn turns on the light. She says, what the hell do you think you’re doing? We see a young man in the middle of robbing the place.

Michael asks if the DA has evidence that can condemn Shiloh, Josslyn tells the burglar that he better pray the cops get there before her father, and Jason has news that could be helpful in dealing with Shiloh.

The Haves and The Have Nots

On the phone, Jim wants Lloyd to explain how an account opened in his name. Lloyd says Veronica asked him to open it. She said she was trying to hide money from her husband because of the divorce. Jim says, if it’s in his name, give him the money. Lloyd says Candace is the manager, and the only signer. Jim calls him a fat moron, and asks if nothing sounded familiar. Lloyd says he’s sorry. Jim says, he’s sorry? Just great. You’re an idiot.

The dudes in the next cell grab Justin, and pants him. We don’t see the whole picture of what they do next, but it doesn’t look pretty.

Kathryn calls Hanna. Hanna asks if she found out where the money is, but Kathryn says, no. Hanna says, it’s crazy. The bank said it was wired to the Cryer Company. Kathryn tells her, Jim says it’s not his company. Hanna doesn’t like it. Kathryn says Jim left there pissed. She doesn’t think he’s coming to Hanna’s place. She thinks he’s playing a game, but she’s on her way. She tells Hanna, don’t open the door. Hanna says he better not bring his ass there. Benny asks what’s wrong, and Hanna says, nothing. Kathryn told her Jim might be coming there. Benny wishes he would.

Jim says it looks like Benny got his wish. They find Jim sitting on the living room couch. Benny asks if he wants to play games, just walking in there. Jim says it’s his house, and Benny asks if lost his damn mind. Jim says he wants his damn money, and Benny says he doesn’t have Jim’s damn money. Jim says his crazy-ass bitch sister has it, and he’s not leaving until he gets it. Hanna says they don’t have it, and he tells her, get it from her daughter. She says it’s his company, and he asks if she’s that stupid. I forgot to mention that Hanna has a huge chef’s knife in her hand, and she says if Jim calls her that one more time, she’ll bury it in him. He tells her to put him out of his misery. Hanna wants to know how Candace got the money, and he says she opened the company. She owns it, and wrote the check to herself with his money. He wants it back. Hanna tells him, get out, but he says he’s not leaving. She says she’s calling Candace, and he says get the bitch on the phone. Hanna says, call her daughter a bitch one more time, and he says, her daughter is a bitch, and she’s the bitch who birthed her. Get her on the phone.

Hanna moves the furniture out of the way. Benny looks a little insane. Hanna says, Benjamin, this MF is all yours. Benny rushes Jim, knocking him and the couch over. He flips Jim back over the couch the other way, and pounds on him. Then literally kicks Jim’s ass. Hanna wishes she had a cigarette, and I laugh. She says, that’s enough, and Benny grabs Jim by the ankles, dragging him out the door. He drags Jim down the front steps, and kicks him a few more times, saying he gave Jim a good old-fashioned ass whoopin’. He also opened up his damn wound. Hanna says she and Jim are from two different worlds, and she doesn’t have any damn thing of his. He says tell her daughter to send the money. She says it’s all she can do, but next time he comes there with his bullsh*t, he’s leaving in a wagon and going to the morgue. Does he understand? Benny bets his ass Jim won’t do this again, but in case Jim’s feeling lucky, please do it.

Kathryn pulls up, and Hanna tells her that Jim was in the house. Kathryn says she’s sorry. Hanna says they’ll have to move, but Kathryn says, no, they don’t. She tells Jim to get his ass out and get home. He says he wants his money, but Kathryn says Hanna doesn’t have it. Hanna thinks he knows it now. Kathryn tells Jim, go – now – and he stumbles off. Kathryn asks if Hanna did that, and Hanna says she unleashed Benny on his ass. $8 million, Jim has a right to be mad, but she doesn’t have it. He said Candace does. She opened an account in his name, but she’s actually the real owner. Hanna doesn’t know if it’s the truth. She says Jim walked in with a key, and Kathryn says she’ll take care of him. He thinks he owns the world. Hanna tells Kathryn, it’s all fine, but Kathryn says, it’s not. Although after that ass whoopin’, she’s not sure she has to do much. Hanna doesn’t think he’ll stop. Kathryn says she can’t fix stupid, but she can sure try.

Justin lies on the cell floor. A guard finds him, and says they need an ambulance. She asks the dude in the next cell if they did something to him, and dude says Justin was hitting himself in the balls. She asks why his pants are down, and dude says, he’s trying get hisself [sic] out of there.

Broderick packs. Rocky comes to the door, and Broderick says he’s getting the hell out. Rocky says they’re not going to deport him, but Broderick says Rocky doesn’t know what he left behind. He can’t go back; he’s not doing it. Rocky says together, they can give them Candace. Broderick says what if RK already told her, but it’s a chance Rocky willing to take. He wants to see her go down. Broderick says, it’s not the DA; it’s the Department of Justice. Rocky asks what his plan is. Is he just going to run? Broderick says he’ll be fine. Rocky asks where he’s going, and Broderick says, none of his business. There’s a knock at door. It’s Kathryn. Rocky lets her in.

Kathryn says it’s her lucky day; they’re both here. Rocky says, maybe not. He has to go. He’s sorry. She asks, what is this? Freak out on Kathryn day? Broderick says, let him go, and Rocky leaves. Kathryn says Broderick will do, but he says he has to leave. He quits. She asks what he’s talking about, and he says he has to go. The Department of Justice knows about the ring they were running. It was shut it down but it’s Candace. She’s at large, and they’re looking for her. I’m not sure why he said that, since everyone knows where she is, but okay. He tells Kathryn he was threatened with deportation unless he helps them. Kathryn says, so help them, but he says, it’s complicated. RK is missing too. Kathryn says she can help him, but he doesn’t think so. He says he was just sex to her. She says she really likes him, and wants to help. She knows she can. Come with her. She’ll take him someplace safe where she can take care of him. He says he can’t go back to the hotel, and she tells him, trust her. Leave all that. She’ll show him a whole new world. He says, lead the way, and they go.

Hanna cleans up Benny’s wound, telling him it looks like the stitches held. She calls Candace, but gets voicemail. She tells Benny to call, but he says he already tried, twice, and left messages. Hanna says she’s doing this on purpose, but Benny doesn’t think so. Maybe she did it before she talked to them. Hanna says, if that’s the case, she can give it back. If she doesn’t, then it’s proof she doesn’t care about them. The love of money is the root of all evil. They’ll see how deep the roots go.

RK tries to call Candace. He leaves a message for her to call him back.

In an interrogation room, Veronica says, so? The FBI guy asks what she means. She asks if he hasn’t looked at the evidence, and wants to know who the boss is. The Director of the FBI? The Attorney General? The President of the United States? She’d like to speak to them. They dragged her out of her home to ask her questions, but she knows nothing about this guy. FBI guy says he claims she hired him to build s bomb. She says, he’s lying, FBI guy says they have his word. She wonders if FBI stands for foolish, blind, and ignorant. Have they seen his rap sheet? Look up the case where he was charged with murder. FBI guy says she represented him. She says, look at all the false statements he made against the witness. FBI guy asks why he walked, and she says because she’s good at what she does. She’s going to open complaints against the whole country. She’s sitting there under duress, and they have nothing but the word of a thug against a seasoned attorney who’s respected in the community. He says she desperately wanted to destroy her rival, and asks if her husband makes her that mad. She says, Mr….? and he says Agent Morris. She tells him take a closer look at the victim. Did they know she was a whore? It’s the proper name for someone who sells their body for sex. They didn’t know? She had a pimp and a drug dealer in a gang. Ask if anyone knows War. She had a vendetta against him, and he wanted her dead. He’s badgering her because they didn’t do all their homework. She wants to make a call to reschedule her manicure. Morris tells her to reschedule for twenty years later. She says that’s another mistake; them placing her under arrest. He says she came in voluntarily, not under duress. She asks if that’s the game he wants to play. She wants to call several judges. He says she’s not under arrest, and she says, then she’s leaving. He says, not so fast, and she says she wants to make a call. He leaves, and she picks up the phone.

Veronica calls David, who’s sitting in her driveway. He tells her to open the door; he’s there. She says she’s been arrested, and he asks, why? She says she’s at the FBI headquarters, and needs him to come. He asks what she’s done. What’s the charge? She says, something about domestic terrorism and a bomb going off. He says he’s on his way. She asks him to go in the house first, and make sure that kid doesn’t take anything – her young lover. He says, okay, fine.

David gets out of the car, and goes inside. He sees RK drinking on the couch, and asks what the hell is he doing? RK says, drinking. What does it look like? Looks like a wrong answer to me. David tells him, get out. RK says, he’s David, right? David says he’s about to be RK’s ass whoopin’ if he doesn’t get out. RK knows it’s heartbreaking, but he’s a guest of David’s wife. No disrespect, but he’s drinking now; Veronica’s not there. David says he’ll call the police. RK insists he’s a guest, and David grabs him and pulls him up. He tells RK, don’t come back. Outside, RK starts to get into Veronica’s car, and Davis says, no. RK says Veronica said he could take it, but David demands the keys. RK hands them over, saying, fine. Just so David knows, they did it all night. David says, keep walkin’ while you’re talkin’.

Morris asks what he wants to do about Veronica. Scott says, nothing; let her go. He wants to go after Candace. Morris tells Veronica that she’s free to go. She says she knew that, and she’ll see him in court.

Wyatt calls Jeffrey, who asks if he’s high. Wyatt says, no, but Jeffrey says he is. Wyatt says Jeffrey needs to relax. He’s calling to tell Jeffrey that he’s going to do it. Kill everybody in the house. Jeffrey says he already told Wyatt, don’t call him when he’s high. Wyatt says, some friend he is. He called to say goodbye. He’s going to kill everyone, and then do himself in. Jeffrey says, okay. Wyatt says Jeffrey doesn’t believe him, but it’s going to be the wild, wild west. Jeffrey says he’s done with this; goodbye. He hangs up, and Wyatt drops the phone.

Jeffrey’s phone rings again, and a woman asks if he’s related to Justin. He says he’s not, and she says sorry. He’s listed as next of kin. Jeffrey gets up from the couch, and tells her, wait. What’s this about? She says she’s calling from County Medical. Justin was in a bad accident. Jeffrey asks, what kind? but she says she doesn’t know. He’s being treated there, and she needs to locate his next of kin. Jeffrey asks if it’s bad, and she says if he’s not related, she can’t talk to him. He asks where Justin is, and she hangs up. Jeffrey leaves, even though he doesn’t know where he’s going.

Veronica and David go back to her house. Veronica says they had nothing on her. Does that make him happy? He tells her, stop that. They need to talk. She says, about how she’s going to get them off? He says he doesn’t need her that way. They need to talk about them. He sits on the couch, but she says, not there. She’s going upstairs to make sure that boy didn’t rob her, and she’ll meet him by the pool. He says he still loves her. She says she still loves him. They have a lot of making up to do. He agrees.

Wyatt sips a can of something. Jim comes into the kitchen, and Wyatt asks what hell happened to him? Jim says, leave him alone, and gets some ice. He asks if Wyatt broke into the wine fridge. Wyatt says it looks like someone broke Jim’s ribs. Jim asks, what’s in the can, and Wyatt says, soda. Jim smells it, and dumps it out, saying he’s sick and tired of this sh*t. Wyatt says, keep pushing him, and see what happens. Jim says Wyatt is a loser and a junkie, and he needs Wyatt out of his face. He’s in a lot of sh*t. Jim’s phone rings, and Wyatt says, keep pushing. Jim can’t wait to see what happens, and tells Wyatt, get out.

Jim answers his phone, and Scott introduces himself. Jim asks who is he, and what the hell does he want? Scott says he wants to arrange a private meeting with someone who’s interested in helping Jim. Someone very powerful. Jim demands to know who, Scott says he’s calling for the Attorney General. Jim says tell John… and Scott asks, who’s John? Jim says he doesn’t know the name of who he’s calling for? He’s already dealing with the local DA. Scott says he’s not calling for the state attorney; the Attorney General. Jim wonders why he’d want to meet, but Scott says he’s calling to arrange it. Is Jim interested or not? Jim says he is, very much. Scott says it could benefit him greatly. He’ll call back. The wheels turn in Jim’s head.

Candace calls Jim. He answers, really? Let him tell her something. She says she’s calling to tell him that she’s giving the money back. He says she’d better, and she tells him not to threaten her. She’s trying hard to be nice. He says she knows it’s his money, and he’s better have it tonight. She says again, don’t threaten her. She’s calling because she’s giving it back, and needs the account number. He doesn’t trust her, but she asks how she’s supposed to send the money? He asks if she’s giving it back because she’s with the President Elect now. She doesn’t need it. She says she’s turning over a new leaf, and Jim says, sure. He says he’ll text the number to her, and he’ll be looking for the money tonight. She says she told him before, don’t mess with her brother.

She gets the text, and transfers the money.

Not-landon tells Charles, sorry, and hands him the phone. He says, it’s everywhere. The press is outside. Charles says, damn! Where is she? Not-Landon says, upstairs. Should he take her out through the back? Charles says, there’s no back way. Not-Landon says he means the garage in the trunk. Charles says, let him think a moment, and we find out not-Landon’s name is Oliver. Wow. They revealed two names in one night. It’s a record. Charles tells Oliver to let Landon know he’s fired. Poor Landon.

Charles joins Candace in the bedroom, and puts the TV on. A newscaster is saying, you call this Presidential? He’s been seen with this woman, an admitted escort who blackmails men. The viewers can look at the pictures on their website. (I think it’s like a TMZ show.) The guy says, no way she belongs in the White House or with the President.   

Sitting by the pool, Veronica asks what David wants. He says he needs peace. She says she has something to tell him. Jeffery insists on seeing men, and she thinks they should send him away to a retreat in the mountains. It’s in Utah, and some people have left straight. David doesn’t believe that. She says, seeing them together is disgusting. She hates it. He says they’re not doing that to their son. She asks what he wants, and he says, her, the way they were. She says they’ll have to make themselves straight. He says he’s not gay, and never was. She says he’s not Jeffrey’s father. She had an affair. They weren’t getting along, and she was having a hard time getting pregnant. She thought they were going to move on, and she got pregnant. She was going to leave him for the father, until she walked in on him with another man. David says, who? What? She asks if he remembers William, his co-worker; his colleague. He’s the spitting image of Jeffrey. She’s surprised he never noticed. She asks if he still wants to get back together, and he says, no. She didn’t think so. He moves his chair, saying he wants to be close to her. She asks, why? and he says so he can do what he said he would. She says, what’s that? and he says, kill her. She starts to move away, but he grabs her, and pulls her into the pool with him. She tries to get away, but he overpowers her, and holds her under the water.

David steps away, and Veronica does the dead man’s float.

Next time, Charles is sorry – he thought it was handled; Jim asks David how he lost control; David says he had to do it; Madison says Jeffrey is in love with Justin; and RK tells Candace, the sh*t is hitting the fan.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

Erika isn’t annoyed that LisaR used the Erika Jayne persona. However, she is annoyed that Kyle and Teddi won’t let it go.

It’s breakfast at the chateau. Everyone is tired. LisaR says they still don’t know about Denise’s house, and Kyle says Denise doesn’t know anything yet. In her interview, Dorit says there’s something about waking up in your PJs together, that makes you feel closeness. Erika has a bit of a migraine. In Erika’s interview, she says it was brought on by bitches who want you to be offended by something you’re not offended by. Kyle tells the group she’s organized a winery trip at 1:30. Everyone can do whatever until then.

Dorit and Teddi decide to go for a run. Dorit thinks getting the front door open is enough of a workout. It is massive. The other women take a walk around the property. Dorit and Teddi play racquetball. Teddi claims you have to warm up the ball, and rubs it in her hands. It didn’t matter. They stink. Teddi thinks this is not their game. They finally decide they killed it, and high-five.

LisaR, Erika, and Kyle check out the chapel. We flash back to Erika’s home chapel. Erika says, this one is like a mini church, which is what I thought a chapel basically was. LisaR says, saying a prayer makes her feel connected in honoring what’s going on at home. Please.

Denise and Aaron head back to their house. Seeing how much of the landscape is burned, Denise can’t believe they even put the fire out. She says it’s lucky they got out. In her interview, she says, it’s a fear no one knows unless they were there. The fire was coming fast, and she never felt so trapped. Aaron says, it’s eerie, and wonders about the damage. He doesn’t think they’ll be living back there any time soon. He says, everything is torched across street from the house. Denise says they got out just in time. They go inside. Nothing is burned, but there’s soot and smell. Denise says it looks like they ransacked their own house. She’s going to need a moving truck get stuff out, and thinks she should buy the girls some new stuff. They look at the devastation from their deck.

Camille’s house is pretty much gone. She walks through the rubble wearing a mask. In her interview, she says it was her first house after the divorce that was all hers. We flash back to Erika bringing Camille a housewarming gift. She says, it’s devastating. Mason says they’ll have to start over again. Camille’s friend, Kimber, says Mason told her the house was going down. Camille doesn’t know where to begin.

A helicopter lands. In Kyle’s interview, she says if she’s doing a trip, she’s doing it right. Teddi says it’s going to be her first time in a helicopter, and Dorit says this is an indication that Kyle has lost all fears. In her interview, Kyle says, in the past, she was terrified of flying, but this past summer, she and Mauricio took a helicopter to the airport when they went to San Tropez. It was beautiful. She tells the others that she’s actually calm. The helicopter hits a little turbulence, and she says she doesn’t like the jiggling though. She wants to do things she wouldn’t normally do. Teddi says, life is short, but Kyle says, not right now.

They land at the vineyard. Erika says helicopters crash all the time. She wasn’t going to say that before the trip. She’s right. One crashed on the roof of a building in NYC recently. She tells Kyle that she did well. The seats look plush for a helicopter. I’m also wondering, don’t they have to go back?  A fantastic spread has been set out for the wine tasting; plates of fruit and cheese and such. Dorit likes a tasting. It’s more of a social activity than a boozing session. In Erika’s interview, she says she’s not drinking it, but she’ll taste to be polite. When they’ve hit ten different wines, Kyle announces that she likes each one better. She jokes that she’s confused as to which one is her favorite, and asks to start again. In her interview, Erika says she has a migraine, and can’t drink. She’s the sober one today, and when you’re not drinking, you get irritated with the drunks. She’s just being honest. They find out the vineyard is looking for a distributor in the states. Kyle says the one of the group who sells alcohol isn’t there. LisaR says she never liked that rosé anyway. She makes fun of LVP. Teddi asks if she can imitate all of them. LisaR says it can be very touchy. Teddi says if they’re laughing and talking about it, it’s fine. In Erika’s interview, she says, last night, Teddi was giving LisaR sh*t about impersonating her, but it’s good today. When isn’t life full of double standards?

Kyle does an impersonation of LisaR talking about Harry. LisaR does one of Kyle seeing a bee and running. Dorit applauds. Kyle does Dorit talking to Jagger. Dorit says she isn’t surprised Kyle hasn’t had an acting job since she was seven. LisaR tells Kyle to do Teddi. Teddi says her walk so bad; it’s like her dads. Kyle does it pretty well, and even Erika is laughing. In her interview, Erika points out that no one is offended. It’s not personal. It’s all fun, and they can take a joke. Kyle imitates Denise being perplexed, as she often is. LisaR does Camille, then Dorit. They decide Erika has already been done. Kyle says, honey, we’re good, and we flash back to Erika saying that a bunch of times. Erika says she’s having a good time. Kyle says they have fun, and they clink glasses. LisaR thinks they’re freaking hilarious.

They return in two cars, answering my helicopter question. Teddi wonders where their wine cups are. They’re about to stop the other car when Kyle finds some in the back. She and pours them more wine, which I assume they bought at the winery. Kyle says she loves drunk Rinna. Sober Erika is worse though. Teddi says, last night was rough. Dorit thinks it’s great how they were laughing collectively. In Dorit’s interview, she says she thinks Kyle and Teddi were out of order last night. We flash back to that. There are so many flashbacks in this episode, it’s starting to border on a cheap show. LisaR lies down in the back of the other car, that Erika is also riding in. Teddi says Erika sounds like Debbie Downer. Kyle thinks sometimes Erika is annoyed being around them.

Teddi says she loves getting drunk and changing into fancy formal wear. I’m not sure if she’s serious or not. They sit for dinner. Dorit wears a $6K McQueen dress. Kyle asks for cocktails. Teddi say she called Edwin and told him about Kyle’s impression. He knew it must be her just got off the horse walk. She says he knows her. LisaR says life isn’t always easy or perfect, yet she wants to act like it’s okay. Teddi says she wants things to be a certain way, and when it’s not, she struggled. Erika asks where Teddi comes from, and Teddi says she grew up without much structure. Kyle says in a weird way, they were raised the same. Teddi say she didn’t feel safe with a lot of people. She never did girl trips, and wouldn’t have if not for them. In her interview, Dorit says Teddi and Kyle have gotten so close, eventually they’re going to work into one person. LisaR says they support one another. Erika says she was never supportive until this group. She’d never found a group she wasn’t competitive with. In Erika’s interview, she says she wasn’t liked by a lot of women. Women haven’t opened doors for her, or been her best friends. She’s comfortable. The dark cloud has been removed, meaning LVP. When she was removed, they were able to connect on a human level. Not a soul in the group is jealous. Kyle says she doesn’t feel anyone is jealous. Teddi thinks Erika was irritated last night. Erika thinks Teddi is making something out of nothing. LisaR asks why Teddi wants Erika to feel a certain way. Teddi says she doesn’t. She just wanted to be honest. In LisaR’s interview, she says, this is why there was an issue to begin with. Erika didn’t feel anything, and had a great time. In Erika’s interview, she says she’s not changing her mind. Stop asking. We flash back to LisaR and Erika on the Ferris wheel on (at?) Farrahween. She didn’t even think about it until they brought it up. She says Teddi seems upset, and this is out of left field. She’s reaching for something that’s not there. In her interview, LisaR says, Erika is finally opening up. Do they want to push her away?

Erika doesn’t understand why they want her to feel a certain way. She’s good. In her interview, Kyle asks if that sounds familiar. LisaR says she’d been playing Erika all night. Teddi doesn’t want to be in there anymore, and flounces out. Dorit follow, telling her Kyle is drunk. Erika gets up, and LisaR says it’s sad that there’s discord around. Kyle says, zzz… She thinks Erika is in a bad mood. LisaR says maybe that’s what she should talk to Erika about. She thinks it’s deeper than this. She’s wondering why it came up again. I’m wondering why no one understands that a migraine is debilitating, and it’s shocking that Erika even went out with them. Kyle thinks Erika isn’t enjoying the time. Back at the table, Teddi says she feels awkward. In Dorit’s interview, she says Teddi and Kyle are out of order. Let go at this point. Enough is enough.

Erika comes back, and stirring the pot, LisaR tells Kyle to say what she needs to, that she doesn’t think Erika is having fun or enjoys being with them. Erika say she has the best time. She didn’t feel good today. She just said she liked the group. Kyle doesn’t think so. Teddi doesn’t either. Erika says they’ve turned this, and asks if they’re trying to push her out. Kyle says she just wants to understand. Erika feels like there’s something else, and feels bullied. She thinks they’re in cahoots, and want her to feel a certain way, and she doesn’t. she’s going to bed now. Make up sh*t; keep going. She walks out, not quite slamming the door.

Dorit says they put Erika in this situation over one incident. It took her off guard. Kyle says she didn’t get a chance to tell Erika something, and LisaR encourages her to go talk to Erika. Kyle goes upstairs, and hunts Erika down. Kyle tries to bring up the Farrah party, but Erika say she’s not getting into it. In her interview, Erika says they’re going around in circles. She’s said everything she has to say, and she’s not changing her mind. Kyle says they’ve never had a proble, and Erika says they’re not having now. Kyle says, they are. Erika doesn’t know where this is coming from.

Teddi says she likes Erika, but she seems uncomfortable. It’s easily resolved by being honest. LisaR says she’s doing the best she can. Maybe it’s best to be honest in the morning. Teddi says it won’t be a good morning if she’s uncomfortable at breakfast. She can’t be the moral compass for everyone, and be held to that. LisaR says she holds herself to that, and has to stop. I think she’s just drunk. Kyle comes back downstairs. LisaR tells Teddi to take herself off the hook. In her interview, LisaR says, a lot of cocktails, and it’s like truth serum. It comes pouring out. She tells Teddi that they’ve grown so much. We flash back to various altercations between Teddi and Erika. LisaR says, don’t take a step back. In LisaR’s interview, she says she thinks Teddi sees herself in Erika. We’re affected by people with the same issues, and get mad because we see ourselves. Teddi knows what she needs to do to make people feel comfortable. LisaR thinks Teddi has empathy because Erika is like her. Teddi says the second Erika becomes better than everyone else, it’s eff you. LisaR thinks Teddi wants Erika’s approval. She tells Teddi, sometimes life is uncomfortable. It’s not perfect, and you can’t fix it. She knows that makes her feel unsafe. Teddi says she doesn’t want to screw up, and cries all over LisaR. She just wants everything to be great all the time. Yep. She’s drunk.

LisaR tells Teddi it’s okay to cry; it’s human. She needs to get a good night’s sleep. In LisaR’s interview, she says if anyone had asked what the day was going be like, she’d never have guessed the highs of the helicopter ride to the lows of drunk despair. They go to bed. LisaR asks if Erika is okay. Erika says she didn’t have a problem, but she’s not sitting there listening to the same thing over and over again.

Teddi hunts for Dorit, and tells Dorit she’s a mental case, climbing onto the bed. Kyle joins them. Dorit asks why Teddi is crying. Teddi says everyone hates her. LisaR tells Erika that Teddi started crying. It was another layer, then another; a lot of projection going on. She doesn’t feel Erika likes them. Kyle says she loves Teddi so much. Erika tells LisaR, who likes being with someone who makes something out of nothing? If Teddi doesn’t want her in the group, say something. Don’t hold a migraine against her. LisaR says hopefully, they can coexist and be fine. Kyle straddles Dorit, and goofs around. Teddi wanders off.

Teddi calls LisaR for help. She says she’s no longer having control of her lifestyle. LisaR asks, what happened? She just gets in the tub, and wtf? Now she’s out of the tub. Not a moment’s peace. Kyle runs to Dorit’s room, looking for Teddi, then runs downstairs. She finds Teddi in the kitchen, and says they’re going to bed. Teddi says she needs chips, and makes a grab for some. Kyle tells her, put that chip down. Kyle helps Teddi back up the stairs, and laughs in her interview about being the one who’s helping. It just shows you how bad the situation is. Teddi wants to talk about it, and says she’s hungry. Kyle says, no, she’s not. Go to effing sleep. Teddi says she can’t. She’s busy. Kyle tells her, don’t move; lay still.

Next time, the women do archery – one of the few sports I’m good at; Teddi is embarrassed, and apologizes to Erika; and Camille admits she didn’t trust Dorit.
