05/29/13 Opal gets a surprise visitor!

"In Lea's office, Zach and Lea tried to zoom in on a menu in the sex video, but the words were too blurry to read. Lea thought that Jesse might be able to identify the menu from his past street patrols. Zach insisted that Jesse couldn't know about the development.

"Why not?" Jesse asked from the doorway. Zach claimed that he was just about to call Jesse, but Jesse said it hadn't sounded like it. Zach offered to get coffee with Jesse to discuss the case. Jesse figured that there was a new lead, and he demanded that Lea and Zach fill him in about it.

Lea told Jesse that they'd located a video on the "Your Every Fantasy" website. Zach said the video wasn't important, but it had a blurry image of a menu from a local restaurant on it. Zach added that Lea would have the screen capture of it examined, but Jesse, who knew the restaurants on the outskirts of Center City, insisted upon helping to identify the menu.

Jesse looked at Lea's computer screen, and he immediately noticed a leg in the video still. He guessed it was a porn video, and that was why Zach hadn't wanted him to see it. Zach tried to deter Jesse from looking further, but at Jesse's insistence, Lea played the video. Jesse gulped and shivered incredulously when he saw Cassandra on the tape, sobbing that she was a dirty girl.

As Zach worked to calm down the enraged Jesse, Lea made out a couple letters on the blurry menu. Jesse figured out that the name of the place was "Adriano's," and he knew exactly where it was.

Later, Lea acquired the delivery records for the restaurant, and Jesse noted that a cash customer at "136 Bleeker" never gave a phone number but seemed to be feeding an army. Zach figured out that the address was near the railroad tracks.

Jesse called Manny, whom Jesse had sent to check out the location earlier. Manny reported that it was an abandoned warehouse with blacked out windows. Jesse said that it was the same way that Amy had described the place she'd been held. Lea, Jesse, and Zach rushed out of the office.

At the Kaslov hideout, Uri smacked Vlad to impress upon him the mistake he'd made with the police chief's daughter. Vlad insisted Cassandra's passport had been French, but Uri said to shut up.

By the register at Jane's, Robert Smithers was getting coffee when Billy Clyde slinked up and pulled him outside to talk. Billy Clyde pressed to find out why Smithers, one of his best customers, had suddenly become missing in action. Billy Clyde ordered Smithers to say where he'd been taking his business, or Billy Clyde would send naughty pictures of Smithers to his Smithers' wife.

Smithers claimed not to be taking it anywhere because he and his wife were working things out. Laughing, Billy Clyde flicked opened a knife and demanded to get the skinny. Smithers confessed that he needed something kinkier than Billy Clyde's services, but Smithers wouldn't reveal where he'd been.

Billy Clyde hoped Smithers' wife would enjoy an early anniversary present, and Smithers handed over a card with a website address and a password to a secret portal for hookups. Billy Clyde tossed down the card, retracted his blade, and called for fire and brimstone to reign down on the sodomites.

Later, Billy Clyde met a driver in an alley. The driver handed over a face mask and said they were headed to a secret location. Billy Clyde quibbled about wearing the mask, but the driver insisted upon it. "The things I do for the name of the Lord," Billy Clyde murmured, sliding on the mask.

Later, the gun-toting Billy Clyde arrived in the corridor outside the room where Cassandra had been held. Also in the hallway were Jesse, Zach, and Lea. They drew their guns and asked what Billy Clyde was doing there. He mumbled that he had a bone to pick with the heathens, but Lea quickly cuffed him and dragged him away from the holding room.

Zach and Jesse charged into the holding room, and the women inside screamed.

At the coffee house, AJ and Miranda entered, and AJ asked her to grab a table. Miranda saw Hunter and his friends and frowned, She went to a table full of girls and asked them to scoot over. One of the girls claimed they were leaving, but Miranda noted that they seemed to have just gotten there. The girl responded that they were in the middle of something.

Heather called Miranda to her table. The other girls ignored Miranda as she walked off to sit with Heather. Miranda asked how she knew Heather, but Heather replied that they didn't know each other. Heather knew what had happened with Hunter because it had been all over Twitter, and she wondered how Miranda dealt with jerks like Hunter everyday at school. "He's not the only one," Miranda murmured, glancing at the girls who'd shunned her.

As AJ got coffees, he ran into Kyle, who wanted to know if AJ had tried the steroids. AJ relayed that his father had found them first, and Kyle freaked out, sure that AJ's father would talk to Kyle's. AJ promised that his father wouldn't do anything, and Kyle said that AJ was lucky because Kyle's dad would have beaten the crap out of him. "Real lucky," AJ quipped, walking off.

AJ joined Miranda and Heather and learned that the other girls hadn't wanted Miranda to sit with them because Hunter had been watching. Miranda explained that Heather attended Bramwell but knew about the Hunter incident due to social media. Heather called AJ a hero.

Hunter and his friends surrounded Heather's table, and Hunter quipped that Miranda was friends with a Bramwell Hall student because they liked to get off on the "V." AJ grabbed Hunter, but Miranda broke the guys apart and reminded AJ of what his coach had said. AJ raged that someone needed to take Hunter down. She insisted that it AJ wouldn't do it for her again, and she dragged AJ out of the cafe.

At the mansion, JR looked at the bag of drugs and placed them in a drawer in the living room. Cara arrived, and he expressed that he was still having problems with AJ. Cara reasoned that JR had been gone a long time, and teens could be a handful. JR hoped that AJ didn't turn out like JR.

JR picked up a bottle of liquor and said he could hold it without wanting to drink it, but people wouldn't believe him. Brooke entered, and he said, "Here we go." He assured Brooke that he wasn't going to drink it, and Brooke said she wanted to believe that. JR quipped that it was guilty until proven innocent in that house. "Oh, my God...AJ," JR said and suddenly strode out on his cane.

Brooke put the liquor bottles away and said they should have been gone before JR had gotten there. Cara then realized that JR was right; everyone was expecting him to fail. Cara explained that it made him feel like not even trying.

Brooke quipped that it hadn't taken long for JR to get Cara to pity him. Brooke asserted that the family had long been witnesses of JR's manipulations, and she'd hate to see Cara's faith in him turn around and bite Cara.

Upstairs, JR found AJ in AJ's room. JR wanted to apologize for jumping to conclusions about the bag, but AJ raged that JR had acted as if it had been heroin inside it. JR contended that steroids were drugs, but AJ insisted that he didn't do drugs. "I know," JR replied. JR apologized because he hadn't realized that until Brooke had thought he'd been about to drink the scotch he'd been holding.

AJ's expression changed, and JR asserted that he hadn't been about to drink the scotch. AJ grimaced, and JR stated that AJ didn't believe JR, either. JR guessed that he deserved it, but he insisted that AJ, who'd never given JR a reason to distrust his son, didn't deserve it. JR apologized for distrusting AJ. With a softer expression, AJ looked up, but JR had already walked out of the room.

At Opal's house that evening, the-facial-mask-wearing Opal opened her door, hoping to see Pete. Instead, it was David, who claimed she looked as lovely as ever. David wanted to talk to Pete about some business, but Opal ordered David off her doorstep before she called the police. Opal closed the door on David and went to wash her mask off.

When Opal returned to the living room, she gasped upon seeing David sitting in a chair. He said she'd left the door unlocked when she'd slammed it in his face, and she should be more careful. Opal declared that she was calling the police, but David insisted upon talking to Pete about Cortlandt Electronics' future. Opal had no intention of letting David near Pete and said Palmer would be spinning in his grave if David got involved with the company.

David couldn't understand why he couldn't get points for the good he'd done. He claimed to be the best heart surgeon and said he'd also cured Angie's blindness. Opal asserted that the lives he'd touched ended up in tragedy, and she wouldn't allow him to destroy Pete's world. David said he'd leave; however, David urged Opal to tell Pete to call David before Pete had to kiss "Daddy's dynasty goodbye."

Later, David arrived at Jane's cafe with a news crew, and Jane asked what was going on. David told her that it was a press conference to announce a game-changer. She recognized David and said he should have checked with her because her patrons didn't want to be on television. David promised that they'd only see his face on screen, and he said the crew could order what they wanted on him.

Jane left, and the reporter asked if David would be discussing his past conviction. David said that he wasn't discussing the past; he'd discuss the future and how he'd change it.

In New York, Pete missed a call but claimed he didn't need to go back to Pine Valley. He wanted to do something special with Celia on their last night there. Celia wondered what he'd rather be doing if he were there with another girl. Pete started talking about the rain forecast for the evening, but Celia insisted that she knew the kind of girls he was accustomed to dating. She was sure that if one of them were in the hotel room, the girl and Pete would be in bed, not talking about dinner and a show.

Pete agreed that Celia was right, and Celia wondered why he'd taken her there. Pete said that it was because she wasn't like other girls. He was attracted to her, but sex wasn't in the forefront of his mind. Being with her made him happy, no matter what they did. He added that he liked the kind of girl who waited until she was in love.

"I think I might be...falling in love with you," Celia blurted out. She tried to walk away in her embarrassment, but Pete pulled her back to him. He was glad she'd said it because he felt the same way. The two leaned in for a kiss, but Celia shrieked upon seeing the man from her dreams behind Pete.

No one was behind Pete; however, and as Celia tried to calm down, Pete saw David Hayward on TV. Reading the captions, Pete learned that David was discussing a new medical breakthrough and mega merger with Cortlandt Electronics. "Son of a bitch!" Pete roared and turned up the volume. Pete called his assistant to tell her to get his legal team to file an injunction and shut David Hayward down.

Back at the mansion, JR had returned downstairs, and Cara was exiting the house when Brooke showed them David's interview on her laptop. JR asked "what the hell" David was doing.

On screen, David explained that he'd been incarcerated for the accidental shooting of JR chandler, but David hoped that the citizens would welcome him back to further the research he'd begun in prison. David claimed that his new medical device could be produced in Pine Valley, and it would open up new jobs and revitalize the region."
