06/12/13 Dimitri Marick returns

"At the cafe, Brooke was happy to find herself having coffee and catching up with Dimitri Marick. Dimitri was shocked that Wildwind had been shut down, and Brooke revealed that Sam and Maddie hadn't wanted to rent it out again after Caleb had left town. Dimitri remarked that he hadn't kept in touch with Sam and Maddie after his divorce from Alex, but while visiting Wildwind's mausoleum earlier, Dimitri had made peace with Edmund.

Dimitri felt that Brooke had emailed him at the right time because Europe had started to bore him. He asked her to tell him more about the proposition that she'd emailed him about. Brooke explained that Chandler was ready to make a big push into online media, and she needed someone with Dimitri's talents to head up the division.

Dimitri didn't see why Brooke, with her media experience, needed him. Brooke said she needed someone she could trust, and that person would not only head the division, but also help her keep an eye on JR, who was eager to find a way back into Chandler.

At the Chandler mansion, JR slipped a steroid vial into his pocket as Cara arrived. JR had asked Cara to meet him and render an honest opinion of his recovery. He wanted to hear the good and bad, but Cara replied that she'd found his recovery to be remarkable thus far. Unsatisfied with the news, JR asked if he could speed things up with human growth hormones or steroids.

Cara asserted that steroids could be like a death wish. She said there was no proof that human growth hormones rebuilt muscles, and steroids had wide-ranging side effects, including the risk of heart attacks, strokes, and cancer. She added that steroids were also addictive, and with his history, he didn't need to play Russian roulette when he was doing well on his own.

JR hadn't realized the risks but figured that without steroids, he'd never make a full recovery. Cara replied that she'd never prescribe it for him, but he insisted upon knowing the odds of his recovery without it. She believed it was too early to tell, but she urged him to trust what she was saying to him.

With a sigh, JR changed the subject and invited Cara out to dinner to thank her. Cara was surprised and said she wasn't even dressed to go out. He told her that they'd stay in, and the best part about being at home was that the cook was already there with them.

Later, AJ, JR, and Cara were having dessert when Brooke arrived with Dimitri. JR was stunned to see Dimitri, and Brooke announced that she was trying to convince Dimitri to return to Pine Valley and help with Chandler Media. JR abruptly stated that Dimitri would do a good job. Brooke and Dimitri left the room, and JR bitterly added that Dimitri could also walk without falling flat on his face.

Later, Brooke escorted Dimitri to the front door, and he said he was impressed by her audacious plan. He felt that it was certainly worth remaining in Pine Valley for.

Back in the living room, JR said he'd soon be able to play ball with AJ, and JR couldn't wait to see his son pitch. AJ murmured that it would have to wait because he hadn't made starting pitcher. JR asked why, and AJ snapped that his father needed to chill out. AJ claimed he didn't need to win all the time like his father and grandpa, and needing to win only caused disappointment and weird feelings.

AJ left the room, and JR told Cara that AJ knew JR was a loser. JR said his son pitied him, and his sister thought Brooke was running over him in business. Pounding his legs, he raged that he couldn't do anything in his condition. Cara ordered him to stop it because he'd only been awake for a few weeks.

Upstairs later, JR lowered his pants, tapped on a syringe, and injected himself.

At Bramwell Hall, Celia answered a call from Pete, who wanted to know why she'd returned all the items he'd bought for her. Celia was unable to explain it, and she asked him not to call her again.

After the call, Heather entered to talk to Celia about AJ, who Heather had decided was "so freaking hot." Celia said AJ was a good guy, but Heather was unsure about pursuing him because she didn't want to be the type of girl who made moves on someone else's guy.

The subject turned to Celia's love life, and Celia claimed that she and Pete had too many differences and bad timing. Heather figured that Celia and Pete would work things out, but Celia replied that he'd already found someone else.

At home, Pete poured himself shots and didn't notice Colby behind him, slipping into the house and heading upstairs. Later, Pete took a drink into his bedroom and jumped with a start when he saw Colby lounging on his bed, wearing only his dress shirt.

Pete asked what Colby was doing there, and Colby said she'd been waiting forever. He responded that it wasn't a good night. She tried his drink and expressed delight that he was a scotch man. She kissed his neck and ripped open his shirt. Colby was excited to see how "buff" he was, and she pulled off her shirt, revealing a black teddy.

Pete was impressed by Colby's physique. Whispering in his ear, Colby asked how many times, when they'd been younger, he'd thought of having her naked and willing to do what he wanted. She uttered that dreams became true, and she kissed him. Pete tossed her onto the bed and ravaged her.

Pete and Colby lay in bed after having sex, and Colby decided she wanted him to teach her about computers. As he talked about electronics, she kissed him lower and lower on his body. Giving in to his feelings, Pete stopped speaking, but Colby grabbed his face and said, "You stop; I stop. Got it?" Pete resumed trying to discuss computers as Colby worked her magic on him.

At the police station, an officer fingerprinted Zach, and Jesse protested to Lea about how unfair it was. Lea responded that they'd had no choice, and if Jesse hadn't arrested Zach, then she would have. Jesse refused to let Zach go down for something he hadn't done. Lea replied that Zach faced federal charges in addition to the murder charge, and it was out of Jesse's hands.

Aside with Zach, Jesse said he knew Zach hadn't done it. Zach replied that it made two of them. Zach requested extra protection for Kendall and the boys, and as Lea led him away, Zach quipped that it had to feel good to be right about him. Lea sadly replied that she'd been hoping to be wrong.

Later, Zach made bail after his lawyer had argued that the Koslovs had made it too dangerous for Zach to be in jail. The court had remanded Zach into Lea's custody, but she promised Jesse that her new babysitting duties wouldn't interfere with finding Cassandra.

Lea went to sign Zach out, and Jesse apologized for getting Zach involved. Zach said the Koslovs had done that, but Jesse would do the same thing for Zach if Zach needed it. Jesse seemed very worried, and Zach flashed a questioning look. Jesse murmured that it wasn't right, and he left.

In a dark parking lot, Jesse called Uri to say that Zach had been arrested, and Uri could let Cassandra go. Uri was unhappy that Zach had gotten out on bail. He raged that he wanted Zach behind bars, but Jesse replied that bail had been up to a judge, not Jesse. Jesse demanded to know where his daughter was. "You disappoint me," Uri seethed and clicked off the line.

Jesse tried the number again, but it had been disconnected. "Where is she?" Jesse screamed.

In a dark apartment, a man laid the bruised and limp Cassandra on the floor and left.

Back at the station, Lea handcuffed Zach. He protested, but she told him she wasn't taking any chances with him giving her the slip. She also instructed him to keep his "smart-assed" comments to himself for the night. As she led him away, he said the cuffs would pose a showering problem.

Later, Zach entered a hotel room with Lea and thanked her for removing the cuffs. He was perplexed because she'd believed in his guilt but had done everything possible to help him make bail. Lea quipped that she hadn't even gotten a thanks for it.

Zach thanked Lea but asked why she'd considered that he could have killed Koslov. Lea claimed that the evidence was overwhelming, but he asked her what her gut said. She replied that Zach wasn't stupid enough to throw his whole life away, and she believed that he had more good than bad in him.

Lea decided that she was ready to retire for the evening, and Zach asked if he could wash his feet before she tied him to the bed. She replied that she wouldn't do that, and there would be an agent outside the door to keep an eye on him. Zach asked where she'd sleep, and she said she'd sleep in the bed. He guessed he'd take the floor, but she said she wanted him in bed, too.

Zach moved in to kiss Lea, but she walked by him to a door to an adjoining room in which she planned to sleep. Zach asked what would happen if he woke up from a nightmare in the night. Lea advised against him awakening her because she slept with a gun beneath her pillow and detested surprises. She said the agent posted at the door could make things better and tuck Zach in if need be.

Lea and Zach bade each other a good night, and he remarked that it was the first time she'd let him call her "Lea." She replied that it was because she was exhausted. She left, and Zach uttered, "Lea..." He smiled and drank from a glass of wine."
