04/20/2007 Bianca Wants To Go back To Paris

"Emma makes her debut in her flower girl dress, much to the delight of her parents. Annie then asks Ryan if he would like to go over some wedding details with her, and although he seems less than enthused, she ropes him in anyway. She heads out of the room to gather some things, and Emma announces that she has a surprise. She pulls an Annie Original Book out of its hiding place and presents it to her father: the latest story in the saga of Queen Annabelle finding her true love. Annie returns just then, sends their daughter off for a snack, and reveals that the book was supposed to be his wedding present. Only mildly disappointed, Annie beams when her betrothed tells her that the best part of the story is yet to come. He reveals that he talked to the doctor and the odds of having biological kids are in his favor if he has the surgery to reverse his vasectomy. Pausing but a moment, Annie covers his face with kisses, letting him know that she approves of his plan. She then tells him that if his only reason for having kids is to make her happy, he doesn't need to, as she is happy with their life the way it is. Ryan explains to her when he had the first surgery, he was in such a different place than he is now – one where he couldn't get over his past to see that he could be a good father. Now, knowing differently, he is ready to fill their home with joy and love. She agrees happily, and then adds that she would like Ryan to formally adopt Emma. She tells him that she wants to be safe in the knowledge that if anything ever happened to her, Emma would be automatically in his care. Ryan agrees wholeheartedly, telling her that her offer is the best wedding gift he could have asked ever gotten. Their daughter then rejoins them, and they play a game that quickly dissolves into a heap of tickling and fun on the floor.

Erica listens to some music with her publisher, and they both agree that having Zoë on her show would be a brilliant move. Before Erica can verbally confirm that she could convince the rock star to make an appearance on New Beginnings, there is a knock at her office door. On the other side is the singer herself, and Erica asks to be left alone with her. Once the publicist shuts the door behind him, Zoë interrupts what Erica had planned to say, assuming that she had concerns about Bianca. She plows through and says that while she and Bianca don't want to lose each other, Zoë still admits to having to find herself, and not wanting to hurt Bianca in the process. Erica is grateful for how delicately she handles Bianca and notes that her youngest is very lucky to her Zoë in her life. She deftly switches into businesswoman mode, and tells Zoë that she just heard the demo for her new song and would be thrilled, nay honored, to have her perform it on the show. Unable to say no to Erica, Zoë agrees to the performance. Erica praises her courageousness and promises that the singer will have nothing to fear.

Zach and Kendall arrive at the Fusion offices and after greeting Bianca, Kendall desperately attempts a last-ditch effort at trying to get Zach to send her sister back to Paris. Zach refuses and Kendall finally agrees to let go and stop acting like her mother. She goes off to fetch herself from coffee, and Bianca comes over just then and asks Zach to have Cambias send her back to the Paris office. Amused at the sisters' parallel thoughts, Zach tells a startled Bianca that he will get the paperwork started. He teases her a bit about the distance between her and Zoë until she reluctantly admits that Zoë will be in London recording her new CD. She then confesses that she is worried about Kendall's reaction but Zach promises that he will let her sister down easy. A short time later, Kendall returns to the main part of the office to find Zach trying to convince Bianca that she needs to go to the Paris office for the good of the company and, in compliance with their ruse, Bianca protests, wondering what effect it would have on her family here. Zach drags Kendall into the conversation and makes her be the voice of wisdom to her sister. Bianca finally caves and asks them to wish her luck in breaking the news to Erica. Kendall offers to accompany her, but Bianca says she will call if she needs backup. She makes her way out of the office, leaving Kendall behind to celebrate the sheer brilliance of her husband. She asks what changed his mind, and he tells her that he thought about what she said and decided that Bianca's happiness would be worth convincing the young mother to go. Kendall swears that she is on to his tricks, and tries to make him admit that he asked Bianca to go because of his unending love for her. Zach doesn't get to respond, as Derek shows up at that moment with news about his father. Kendall takes the opportunity to excuse herself, saying that she planned to catch up with her sister. After she leaves, Zach tells Derek that he doesn't care where Alex ends up as long as he can't hurt anyone. Derek admits that he wish he could think like Zach but the memories of his crimes flood back at the mention of his name. Zach tells the police chief that he refuses to waste his time and energy on the man that once was his father.

Erica makes a phone call and tells Zoë that they were able to reschedule today's guest and asks if Zoë would be able to perform today. Just as spontaneously, Zoë agrees, seconds before Bianca barges into the office. Erica tells her that with Zoë going to London, it would be hard to say goodbye, but that a performance on the show would be a lovely sendoff. Bianca then informs both of them that not everyone would be saying goodbye. Erica is immediately in a tizzy, realizing the implications of once again having her daughter overseas. Bianca tells her it's a done deal...unless Zoë thinks it's a bad idea. Quickly, Zoë jumps on the bandwagon and the two giddily chat about all of the things they can do together on the other side of the pond. Upset and stunned, Erica remains silent even after Kendall arrives and sees her sister caressing Zoë's face.

In the nursery, two provisional nurses note flippantly that the Carey baby is missing and chalk it up to her being with the family. Mere feet away, Babe makes her way through the throng of disorderly temp staff so that she can get to her mother's room. Bearing the cutest baby outfit the hospital had seen in years, she readies herself to help her mother and baby sister check out. Colby and Tad soon join them and, after a moment, Krystal thanks them all for helping her be in a good place with her newest addition, despite all the bad that came before. A few minutes later, JR shows up with the keys to the condo and informs them that he had the kitchen fully stocked so they have nothing to worry about. Thankful, they all continue to pack and Krystal sends Colby off to school, despite her protests. After the teen leaves, JR commends her on calling Colby on her stunts, saying that living with the Careys will probably be the best thing that has ever happened to her. Then, Opal shows up and asks to see her new granddaughter. JR offers to go find out what the hold up is. While he's gone, Opal tells Krystal that although they have a rough history, the appearance of baby Jenny in the world is a key to a new beginning for them – to a place where they can be a bit more like a family. She hands the new momma a box, and when it is opened, it reveals a rattle that Opal gave her own Jenny once upon a time. Immediately teary, Krystal wraps Tad's mother in a brief hug of thanks. Tad notes that he is going to find his own Jenny before overdosing on sweetness.

In the hall, JR runs into Joe and Jeff Martin, and they bang heads over the fact that the board was too cheap to accommodate the demands of the nursing staff. JR says that they didn't want this chaos, and that perhaps the problem lies with management. Jeff urges the young man to have the board talk to the union before the accident waiting to happen becomes reality. Tad joins them in the hall just then, and breaks up the argument – telling his son that the decision had been made and the damage had been done. JR agrees to let things lie for now and accompanies Tad to find his baby sister, leaving Joe more than dissatisfied with the exchange. They continue the disagreement on the way to the nursery but Tad tells JR in the end that nothing matters except his daughter. He turns to the window and sees the empty bassinette, causing both look around frantically to try to locate her.

Back in the hospital room, Joe visits with the Carey women and Opal, telling the last of the three that he thought he saw a dimple on baby Jenny that is much like the one her namesake had. An urgent page interrupts them and Joe excuses himself. He sees Tad and JR in the hall and tries to avoid them because of the page. They stop him, admit they were the ones that sent it, and inform him that Jenny had disappeared. Joe glares at JR and says that if she was taken to the wrong floor, it's probably because of the temporary staff they had to put in place. The three then rush off to track the newborn down.

Krystal shows off pictures of baby Jenny to Opal and assures her the boys should be back with her any minute. After cooing over the precious bundle and insisting that she has the same cheeks Tad had when he was little, she regrettably notes that she has to leave. Before hugging her goodbye, she asks Krystal to give her a call when Jenny shows up so that she can pop back in. Krystal agrees and sends her on her way. The two Carey women then marvel at the miracles that Jenny is already setting in motion.

Stuart cautiously exits the elevator and is still unable to avoid a run in with one of the new staff members. Marian finds him as he picks up the stack of smocks that fell to the floor, and she immediately notices that there is something off. Stuart tries to blame it on the chaos of strike but Marian calls him on his claim, and he admits that he is worried about his brother. He tells her that he is afraid that with all the anger and betrayal Adam is feeling, he doesn't know what his brother will do next.

In the Chandler mansion, Adam enters the library and looks around the room blankly, deep in thought. He reflects on what his brother told him the previous night, and imagines Krystal showing up, baby in arms, telling him that he will come to care for Jenny. He tells the illusion that he will never accept them into his life, prompting Tad to appear and agree – noting that Adam could never get over the fact that his wife fathered a Martin child. Adam makes a sinister promise that the child wouldn't be theirs for long. Soon after, Jamie snaps Adam back into reality by barging into the room and demanding to know where Janet is. Adam feigns innocence, but Jamie doesn't bite. He makes it clear that he knows Adam is responsible for using Janet as bait and running him and Amanda off the road. Adam responds not with a confession but with information – saying that he doesn't issue warnings, and that if he wanted to take the two of them out, he would have. Jamie warns him again not to mess with him or his family, and then cuts deep by telling Adam that Jenny looks just like Tad. He leaves, and Adam is once again alone with his thoughts. He mentally recalls telling Krystal that the one thing she could do to save their marriage is to get rid of the baby.

Later, Marian finds her husband in the nursery, flustered, and tells him that she needs his assistance. He refuses, mysteriously saying that he has to do something to protect the baby from Adam before rushing out. In the hall, JR tells his brother about Jenny's disappearance and Joe tries to ascertain by phone the last person was that handled Jenny. He hangs up the phone and tries to make a beeline for the head of security but Tad stops him, insisting that he be told of his daughter's whereabouts. Joe insists that he can provide no more information until he talks to security and tears himself away. Tad's two sons insist that their sister needs to be in the building somewhere, and Tad hangs his head low, disbelieving the turn his life is taking.

Greenlee looks at the latest news from Pine Valley on her computer, and after flashing back to the initial success of Fusion, and her relationship with Ryan when it was good, she sentimentally touches the green butterfly pin he gave her. She then picks up the phone and orders a one-way plane ticket to Pine Valley.

In the hall, Joe meets up with his son and grandchildren again and informs them that Jenny is nowhere to be found in the hospital, but that they are doing everything they can to find her.

Adam calls a Mr. Gates and discusses placing children for adoption, no questions asked, all the while gazing at baby Jenny."
