09/25/2009 Jake Accuses Amanda of Falling for David

"David asked Amanda to be honest about the changes he'd witnessed in her relationship with Jake. Amanda was able to delay answering when she spotted an unsteady Adam sink to the floor across the room. Adam hallucinated and believed his brother was talking to him. Tad approached Annie and Adam after Adam hit the floor, and Annie encouraged Adam to take a break from dancing.

On the roof, Madison taunted Randi with accusations of murdering Henry. She offered Randi a brick and dared her to use it, since Randi was familiar with blunt objects. Randi grabbed the brick and started to do as asked. Brot walked out on to the roof and called out to Randi to get her to stop.

Randi resisted Brot's directive and said that she needed to do something to get Madison to stop the torture that had been inflicted on her family. Brot insisted that killing Madison was not worth it. Randi finally saw reason, dropped the brick, and left. Madison tried to raise Brot's ire, and insinuated that Brot couldn't think for himself.

Brot asserted that the Hubbards were good people and said that Madison needed to leave. Frankie, looking for Randi, showed up on the roof and was irritated when he saw that Madison was there. Madison made some lascivious comments toward Frankie before she called it a night and left, as well. Brot filled Frankie in on what had happened, and then begged Frankie to let him in on the entire story.

Jesse joined his son when Frankie and Brot walked down to Fusion. The Hubbard men told Brot about their theory of Henry's death, and Jesse was surprised that Brot took it so well. Brot revealed that he'd been chief investigator with his unit, and had learned to read emotions. He said that while Madison's face held a lot of emotions, grief was not one of them. Natalia approached and the conversation abruptly ended. She told Brot that they needed to get back on the dance floor before they were disqualified.

Angie walked in as Randi agitatedly paced around a room. Randi explained what had happened on the roof, and Angie reminded Randi that she'd acted out against Henry in self-defense. Randi continued to worry that her actions made her seem like a murderer. Angie told Randi that she had nothing to feel guilty about because far too many women arrived in the Emergency Room, bruised and broken, when they didn't to stand up for themselves. She then explained that if Randi refused to believe that she was better than the past she'd left behind, then Henry would have succeeded in breaking Randi's spirit.

Ryan updated Erica on what had happened with Adam. He questioned whether or not Adam knew that Annie was the guilty party. Erica didn't believe that Adam could stay engaged to the person that killed his brother. Ryan suggested that Adam knew the truth, but had it buried under all of his grief. Ryan said that Adam's exhaustion might be causing the information to resurface. Erica agreed that they needed to do whatever they could to get Adam to reveal everything that he knew.

As Scott walked up, David checked Adam out and stated that Adam would recover once he cooled down and rested. Annie said that they should go home, but Adam knew that Annie wanted to win the competition. Adam asked Scott to step in as Annie's dance partner so that she could see the dance through to the end. David protested the admission of a fresh dancer so late into the competition, but Tad told David to relax and remember that everything they were doing was for charity.

Amanda escaped down to ConFusion to check on Jake and Trevor. Amanda revealed that she had faltered when David asked her directly if she had been playing games. Jake said that he used to be afraid that David would realize Amanda had been lying, but that his fears had changed. Jake admitted to his worry that David was playing Amanda, and that Amanda was falling for it.

Amanda was upset that Jake could believe she would fall for David. She noted that she was grateful that David hadn't gotten the police involved after Jake admitted he wanted to kidnap Trevor. She also shared David's desire that they all get along for the sake of the baby. Jake said that he thought Amanda's gratitude was not unlike Stockholm syndrome, where the captive falls in love with the captor.

Amanda denied the possibility she could ever sympathize with David, but Jake questioned why she hadn't resumed wearing her wedding ring. She tried to convince her husband that even though the ring wasn't present on her hand, she was no less married to him. David arrived at that point and said that if he and Amanda didn't get back to the floor, they would be disqualified. Amanda reluctantly left, and Jake glumly watched them go.

Annie walked Adam to the door, but was hesitant to let her fiancé leave on his own. Adam told her that what would make him happy would be if Annie won the competition. He promised her that he would head directly home and get some sleep, and then return to the fundraiser once he got his second wind. Annie agreed to dance with Scott, but said that it wouldn't be as fun as being in the arms of the man she loved.

Tad told Jake that Krystal had updated him on David's relaxed stance on Jake spending time with Trevor. Jake didn't believe that David had been honest, and asked that Tad sit down with Amanda and try to make her see the truth about David. Jake then confessed that he wanted to walk away from Amanda, as Tad did with Krystal. Tad pointed out that the two situations were different, and said that Jake needed to remember that Amanda loved and wanted to be with Jake, not David.

As they resumed dancing, David asked if there had been enough time for Amanda and Jake to decide whether she would be honest with David. Amanda thought for a moment, and then admitted that she had been trying to play David. She said that she had hoped by getting closer that she would be able to figure out what was going on in David's head. David asked if she had changed her approach and planned to disarm him with the truth. Amanda told him that she didn't care if he believed her; she was just glad that they all seemed to want what was best for Trevor.

David realized that Amanda was tired and distracted by thoughts of Jake. He suggested that they bow out of the competition so that she could spend time with her husband and son. David took it one step further and suggested that Amanda take the baby and spend the night with Jake. Amanda was amazed that David would so suddenly drop all of his rules. She asked if he was afraid that Amanda and Jake would run with the baby, and David told her that he trusted her not to try to kidnap their son again.

Natalia asked Brot what he'd been talking about with Jesse and Frankie, and Brot admitted that he'd gotten the truth about the Madison North situation out of them. Natalia was taken aback because she'd been kept in the dark for so long. Jesse overheard the back part of the conversation, and congratulated Brot on his stellar police work.

Brot insisted that he'd stumbled into the situation between Madison and the Hubbards, but Natalia was upset that Brot had impressed Jesse ,where she had lost control. She wanted to know what he did, but Brot said he acted on instinct. Natalia lamented that because of her actions, she gave Madison more ammunition to use against her family.

A short time later, Natalia dared Brot to join the police academy, since he felt that he was so much better than the standard cadet. Brot didn't flinch at the charge, and instead pointed out that Natalia had a lot to learn because she hadn't seen any real action.

As they resumed dancing, Scott was unmoved by Annie's claims of worry over Adam's health. Scott insisted that Annie's concern would lessen once the ring on her finger was a wedding band from Adam. Annie was speechless after that assertion and simply stared at Scott. The cameras caught their locked gaze and Adam saw their connection on a television in ConFusion.

Ryan approached Adam and said that he'd heard Adam call out Stuart's name. Adam claimed that he'd been lightheaded and confused, but Ryan didn't buy it. Adam realized that Ryan was fishing for information, and mentioned some theories for consideration. Ryan insisted that Adam knew something wasn't right with Annie, and demanded to know why Adam would continue to protect the person who murdered his brother.

Ryan told Adam about Annie's claims that Emma was the person that aimed a gun at Stuart and pulled the trigger, but Adam didn't believe the claim. Ryan pointed out his belief that desperation had caused Annie to point the finger at a seven-year-old. Although Adam attempted to be dismissive, Ryan said that there was no way that Adam could believe that Annie was innocent after hearing that information.

Annie denied Scott's claims that she was only with Adam for the money, and then blasted Scott for his duality -- first friendly, and then hateful. She claimed that Scott's motives for his move back into the mansion were suspect, but he told her that he'd done as Adam asked because of the family connection. Annie pulled Scott close and said that she'd seen the way he looked at her when he thought she wasn't watching. She talked softly in his ear and then said that Scott would have a difficult time proving that he didn't find Annie intoxicating and arousing.

Scott played into Annie's game, and suddenly took the lead when he insisted that they could have everything they ever wanted if they just gave in to temptation. When Annie shakily resisted, Scott told her not to try to play him anymore. He told her it had worked once, but that it would never happen again. Annie continued to dance seductively and, although Scott warned her to behave, Annie claimed that she had no control. Downstairs, Adam watched the exchange, recalled Ryan's words, and then remembered the last time he'd accused Annie of killing his brother.

In Frankie's arms, Randi rehashed what had happened with Madison and how close she'd been to hitting Madison with the brick. Frankie tried to calm his wife down and said that Madison had been preying on Randi's fears as a way to break Frankie and Randi up. He then told her that he understood how out of control she felt, and how scary it was.

Krystal and Erica ran into each other in the bathroom, and discussed why they thought Adam stuck by Annie's side. After they agreed that Annie was the wrong person for Adam to be with, Krystal asked why Erica cared what happened to Adam. Erica said that even though the two of them fought more than anything else, Adam was meant to be a part of her life. Erica then pointed out that Krystal had firsthand knowledge of that phenomenon, as it seemed that she and Tad were growing close again.

Krystal tried to deny it, but Erica said it seemed the feelings were still present between Krystal and Tad. Krystal admitted that while there would always be feelings, what she had done -- cheating on Tad, leaving both him and her baby -- destroyed any possibility of them being together again. Further, Krystal believed that she'd hurt Tad so badly that he seemed incapable of sustaining a relationship with anyone new.

Tad found Krystal on the roof and asked if they could finish the dance they started. Krystal said that she wanted to, but only if she could be certain that Tad could forgive her for all that she had done. Tad hesitated, and that was all the answer Krystal needed. Her head hung low, Krystal left the roof and headed back down to the dance.

Angie and Jesse watched as Frankie and Randi decided to call it a night, while Natalia and Brot seemed to just be getting started. Jesse pointed out that Brot would need a lot of energy to keep up with Natalia, but that the young soldier seemed to be up to the task.

Amanda found Jake and told him that David wanted the three of them to spend the night together. Amanda thought that the news was the start of a new era, but Jake wasn't excited. Jake questioned David's motives, and then said that Amanda was falling for David's lies. He told Amanda that he couldn't continue to live without her, and wouldn't be placated by a one-night visit. As David watched unnoticed, Jake handed Trevor back to Amanda and walked away."
