07/06/2009 Kendall Asks For Adam's Help

"In Henry's hotel room, Henry tried to persuade Randi to leave her husband, so that they could run away together. Randi tried to let Henry down gently, but Henry refused to accept Randi's decision. When Henry tried to seduce her, Randi reminded him of their deal. She had agreed to meet him in Washington, DC, in exchange for Henry's promise to pull back on Kendall and Jesse. Henry laughed at Randi's naiveté. He wondered what she had thought would happen in his hotel room.

Henry grew angry as Randi continued to rebuff his advances. She told him that a relationship between them would have never worked. Randi was certain that she would have ruined Henry's career if she had tried to build a life with him. Henry didn't care about his career; he just wanted to be with Randi. Randi felt terrible that Henry was miserable in his marriage, but she insisted that Frankie was whom she wanted to be with. Henry was offended that Randi had picked a "cripple" over him. Randi was outraged by Henry's cruel comment; she reminded Henry that Frankie was a hero who had valiantly served his country.

Henry was determined to believe that Randi was stuck in a marriage that she did not want, despite Randi's claims to the contrary. Desperate, Henry tried another tactic. He threatened to tell everyone that they were having an affair if Randi didn't agree to sleep with Henry. Randi tried to buy some time by suggesting that they go out for dinner. However, Henry saw through her ploy.

He became aggressive when he grabbed her by the arms and tried to force himself on her. Randi reached out for something to defend herself with. When her hand latched onto a statue, Randi picked it up and bashed Henry on the head with it. Henry staggered back and then collapsed to the ground. Randi panicked and ran out of the room.

At the hospital, Jesse asked Angie to run an additional DNA test on some evidence against Kendall. Jesse hoped to exonerate Kendall of Stuart's murder. Angie reluctantly agreed. After Angie left Frankie's room with the evidence bag, Jesse admitted to his son that D.A. North was not his favorite person. Jesse believed that Henry was focused on winning a conviction against Kendall regardless whether she was guilty of murdering Stuart or not.

Later, Angie sought Jesse out to tell him that the results on the evidence were unchanged. Jesse was disappointed. He announced that he would go to Washington, DC, to turn in his resignation to Henry North. Angie was surprised by Jesse's decision. Jesse explained that he couldn't work for someone who was willing to convict an innocent person on circumstantial evidence. Jesse was determined to make his resignation count for something. He revealed that he would use the opportunity to make a statement about Kendall, so that Henry wouldn't force Jesse to testify against her during the trial.

At the Chandler mansion, Erica demanded that Annie confess to killing Stuart. Annie snapped and began choking Erica. Adam pounded on the living room door when he heard the commotion. Annie quickly released Erica then ran to open the door for Adam.

Surprisingly, when Erica accused of Annie of trying to kill her, Adam chose to believe Annie's claims of innocence. Annie contended that Erica had strangled herself in an attempt to make it appear as if Annie had attacked her. Adam's security guards stormed into the living room seconds later. Erica was furious when Adam ordered them to escort Erica off of the premises. JR strolled into the living room moments later.

While JR spoke privately to Adam, Annie gloated to Erica that Adam had believed her version of events, not Erica's. Unconcerned about the guards standing nearby, Annie took the opportunity to push Erica's buttons until Adam returned to dismiss the guards. After Erica left, JR asked Adam why he defended Annie when she might have been responsible for Stuart's murder. Adam insisted that Kendall's "posse" was simply trying to find someone, other than Kendall, to blame for the murder.

Adam reminded JR that Annie had saved Adam's life on the night that Stuart had died. JR realized that it was pointless trying to reason with his father, so he decided to leave. After JR's departure, Adam told Annie to fess up with the truth; he had seen the marks on Erica's neck and knew that they weren't self-inflicted. Annie claimed that Erica had provoked her by threatening her with never seeing Emma again. Before Adam could question Annie further, she made an excuse and fled the room.

JR cornered Annie in the foyer and told her that he didn't believe anything Annie had said. He even doubted that she had saved Adam's life. JR pointed out that Adam had been too drugged up, so his memories of that night were not reliable. When JR warned Annie that he was on to her, Annie pulled away from him and ran.

Zach was at Ryan's penthouse, discussing Kendall's disappearance, when Kendall called. Zach begged Kendall to return home, to no avail. Kendall asked Zach to trust her and then ended the call. Zach, determined to have his security team track Kendall down, left the penthouse moments later. Ryan was startled when he turned around and saw Kendall enter his home from the balcony. Kendall explained that she had climbed up the fire escape and had waited until Zach left. Kendall had a plan and wanted Ryan's help. Before she could share the details of her plan with Ryan, the doorbell rang.

Kendall hid while Ryan answered the door. It was Erica. Erica was upset after her encounter with Annie. While Erica told Ryan the details about her encounter with Annie, Kendall listened. When Ryan comforted Erica with a hug, Kendall seemed a bit surprised. Meanwhile, Ryan warned Erica that Kendall was missing. Erica was adamant that her daughter was innocent of killing Stuart. Erica was certain that the killer was Annie.

As soon as Erica left, Ryan called out to Kendall. Kendall did not respond; she had gone to the Chandler mansion to talk to Adam. Kendall reminded Adam that Erica was his closest friend. Kendall asked Adam to honor that friendship by giving Erica what she needed. According to Kendall, Erica needed to know that her best friend believed in Erica's daughter's innocence. Adam revealed that he was as certain of Annie's innocence as he was of Kendall's guilt. Kendall was confident that she could change Adam's mind.

While Kendall eavesdropped from the tunnels, Adam announced that he had recalled something from the night of Stuart's murder. Adam claimed that he knew who had killed Stuart. Annie looked like a deer caught in the headlights; she insisted that it was impossible for Adam to have seen the killer. In the tunnel, someone grabbed Kendall from behind and covered her mouth before she could make a sound.

At the casino, Madison wanted to know whom her husband was with. Zach told Madison that it didn't matter because she deserved better than to have a cheating husband. Zach tried to goad Madison into revealing Henry's secrets. Madison admitted that she was unsatisfied with her life. Zach urged Madison to take control and show her husband that she wasn't powerless.

Erica arrived at the casino a short time later. She wanted to know if Zach had heard any news about Kendall. As Zach pulled Erica into a quiet corner, he reminded Erica that they did not want to alert the police to Kendall's disappearance. Erica believed in Kendall's innocence and was determined to help her daughter out of her legal troubles.

Madison found Henry unconscious on the floor when she walked into his hotel room. She picked up the statue just as Henry began moving. Henry was relieved when he turned and saw his wife leaning over him. He asked Madison to help him up, but she ignored his outstretched hand. Madison wondered if one of Henry's hookers, which he had paid for using her money, had attacked him. Henry responded by asking her for help again. Madison told Henry, "I wish I could, but you are making it hard to love you." Madison raised the statue above her head, and then began to lower it with force.

Randi called to check on Frankie. Frankie sensed that Randi was troubled. Randi claimed that she had a long day and had missed her flight. A short time later, Angie walked into Frankie's room. She realized that Frankie was preoccupied. When she questioned him about it, Frankie confided to his mother that Randi had sounded "scared" when he had spoken to her.

After Randi ended her call with Frankie, she realized that she was missing an earring. Randi decided to return to Henry's room. She knocked on the door, but no one responded, so Randi let herself in. Henry was on the floor where she had last seen him. When Henry failed to respond to her attempt to rouse him, Randi checked to see if he was breathing. She became distraught when she realized that Henry was dead. Moments later, Jesse appeared in the doorway. With little prompting, Randi told Jesse everything, including her past with Henry.

At the casino, Madison ordered a bottle of champagne. Her spirits seemed high. When Zach joined Madison, she revealed that she had taken Zach's advice and shown Henry that she had power over her husband."
