02/10/2004 Erica Posts Tad's Bail




"Tad, David and Adam woke up in jail, grousing about their night and Tad calling the other two "the chainsaw twins." When the guard announced a visitor to bail one of them out, Adam was sure it was Barry, his lawyer. They were all surprised to see Erica. Adam thanked her for coming to bail him out and David jumped up to thank her and promised to take her to lunch. She apologized and asked Tad if he was ready to go. She let David know she was upset he'd kept Bianca's pregnancy from her. Adam warned her not to trust Tad. As Adam and David argued, the guard came to get David who'd also been bailed out. Tad and Erica went to the boathouse and she told Tad this was where she'd ended up that night. Erica didn't answer Tad's questions and only told him to back off David. She told Tad that Adam and David didn't kill Michael, that she had the gun before they did and she'd aimed it at the filth that had raped her daughter. She explained she'd gone to Michael's with David, to put the impotence drug in his scotch. She was to distract Michael while David worked. Michael let them in and guessed they were there to apologize. Erica informed Michael that he would never get away with raping her daughter. Michael insisted Bianca had asked for it. When David poured himself a drink, he put the drug in Michael's decanter. Erica and Michael argued about Bianca and as David stopped Erica from hitting Michael, the flask with the drug fell out of his pocket. Michael was very suspicious and as they all struggled, Erica found the gun and warned David to step away. Tad listened intently to the story and asked if she was the one who shot Michael. Erica only said she'd never felt so good...so righteous. She flashed back to that night, when David tried to stop her from shooting, insisting that the chemical castration was just as effective. Michael was knocked out and as David poured the contents of his flask into Michael's mouth, Erica ran out of the condo. She told Tad she had no memory of where she went or what she did or what happened to the gun. The next thing she remembered was sitting in the park, without the gun. Adam says he saw her during that period and told her she did nothing wrong, but she's still afraid she'd killed Michael. Tad opined that maybe she'd seen Adam shoot Michael. She then told Tad about the blackout the other night when she attacked Kendall, thinking it was Michael. She asked Tad to investigate her to find out what happened during those missing hours. He was reluctant and suggested she work with Jack or Derek, but Erica insisted she needs Tad's help in order to keep both her daughters lives from being destroyed by something she's done.

Greenlee woke up in the Fusion office after a nightmare that Kendall had been executed. Mia and Simone came to work, looking at the mess and wondering what had happened. Greenlee tried to explain that she was only protecting Fusion, but Mia and Simone expressed their compassion and concern for Kendall before leaving. David came to thank Greenlee for bailing him out and told her he understood why she did what she did to Kendall. She cried on his shoulder and he tried to blame Ryan for his part, but she jumped to his defense. David was annoyed to think she was hooked on Ryan again. Greenlee vehemently denied any feelings for Ryan and only wished Ryan and Kendall could run off and she could fix the problem she'd created. They discussed Bianca, the baby, and Erica's nightmare coming true. David told her he may have to leave town for awhile and she stomped out, vowing to fix everything.

Brooke came to Tad's and was glad to see Jamie. He was trying to explain why he hadn't called her the night before, when Maggie walked into the room yammering about spending the night in jail. Brooke said she knew enough to know they weren't arrested for sitting in Adam's car and asked for the R or X-rated version of the story. Jamie admitted they'd done exactly what she didn't want to think they'd done. They explained that Adam had dropped the charges and Maggie rushed out, worried about the impression she'd made on Brooke. Brooke explained she was upset about the situation and Jamie got defensive about Babe before rushing out to class.

Bianca woke up with another flashback of seeing a black sleeve the night Michael died. Lena came over with breakfast and Bianca wondered about her black coat. Lena said it wasn't new, she just hadn't worn it in a long time. Bianca was distraught over everything that had happened, but was pleasantly surprised to see a cupcake with a candle from Lena to celebrate her birthday. Maggie came home and said she'd spent the night at the library. Lena told Maggie about everything that happened at court and left. Maggie wanted to talk to Bianca about all the excitement, but Bianca wanted to discuss the kiss they'd shared the day before. Maggie said she didn't mean for Bianca to take it the wrong way and it had been a mistake. Bianca didn't believe her and reminded her that lies don't work. Maggie said she wasn't at the library; she'd spent the night with Jamie and really likes him. Then she rushed out to go to class. Bianca was making another birthday wish when there was a knock on the door. She was stunned to see Greenlee.

Babe interrupted JR as he was getting into the safe before leaving the house and said he couldn't go anywhere until he talked with her. They bickered again about Jamie, the paternity of her baby and she tried to assure him he was the father. He took cash from the safe, saying he had to bail out his father. She railed against Adam, but he said his father only loves him and wants the best. She was distressed to think he was not only taking Adam's side, but was becoming just like him.

Krystal came in the room to announce she'd heard that Adam is in jail. JR said he was on his way to bail him out. Krystal couldn't wait to go bail Tad out. Babe told her mother that nothing mattered, since JR had turned against her already. Krystal gave her a pep talk and Babe happily skipped over to the safe, opened it and said she was ready to get back the man she loves. Mary watched with interest from the stairway. Babe went to BJ's and met Paul Cramer, passing him a stack of money to falsify the prenatal paternity test right away. Paul only said that Adam was more generous when he asked him to convince JR that Babe was bad news. They discussed the paternity tests and how Paul shouldn't trust Adam. Paul was not interested in helping Babe and Babe assured him that the last thing she wanted was for the baby to be his. Jamie came up to their table, wondering what was going on.

Liza went to Tad's and told Brooke she'd wait for Tad. Brooke was confused and Liza explained that Simone was history and she and Tad were together now. Krystal burst in to also wait for Tad. Brooke asked them not get blood on the carpet and to tell Tad she's looking for him and left. Krystal suggested that she and Liza cut cards or play paper, scissors, rock for Tad. Krystal told a surprised Liza that Tad was sleeping with both of them, plus Simone too. Simone was shocked too when she walked in and heard the news.

Adam was glad to see JR and happy to be bailed out. They hugged and went home. Adam said he may have to leave town for awhile and JR wondered if he was guilty of murder. Mary walked in to welcome them to the crime scene, explaining the safe had been robbed...by Babe."
