    Adam To The Rescue!

    Friday, June 22 2007

    Jonathan wakes Ava from a nightmare and asks if she is okay. Ava isn't sure what to think about that. To distract him she asks if she looks more like Lily when she is asleep and Jonathan gets mad. Ava asks him not to leave. At the door, he asks what she wants and Ava thanks him for helping her on her first night at the estate. She tells him about her dream - running through a forest, trying to find her mother but her mom has become a cackling witch. Jonathan realizes that Ava's life has been harder than any of them realized. Ava shrugs it off saying, "People grow up with crappy parents all the time." Jonathan tells her a bit about his father. As Jonathan is placing a heavier wrap around her shoulders Di arrives with Ava's first visitor - Lily! Lily doesn't really see the tension with Ava and Jonathan and instead asks Ava about her new home and delivers a gift - it's Ava's wish crystal. She tells Di and Jonathan about Ava's nightly wishes, which makes her uncomfortable. Ava tries to change the subject to her new home; Lily thinks it's too big and wants Ava to come back to her house. Ava invites Lily to come to visit and go swimming and lets it slip that Jonathan and Lily shipped off their wedding memories. Jonathan leaves the room, upset. "He'll never stop loving you, Lily," Ava says. Lily doesn't understand and Ava tries to convince her that she and Jonathan can be friends even if they aren't married. Lily's uncomfortable and leaves. Di realizes that Ava has feelings for Jonathan! She pretends not to be interested, saying Jonathan isn't her type but Di won't let the subject drop. Ava tells Di that she isn't going to be the girl waiting at home for the guy to come home. She thinks about how Jonathan looks at Lily and Di tells her that Jonathan looks at her a certain way too - and it isn't because she looks like Lily! Jonathan returns to apologize for leaving so suddenly. Ava apologizes for bringing up the river thing and tells him Lily has gone. He leaves again. Di leaves, too, but tells Ava that he came to see her before closing the door.

    Ava is getting to know her new home by blasting music and dancing around her new room. Jonathan walks in, smiling, and making Ava angry. He tries to explain that he isn't making fun of her but that only makes Ava madder. He holds out a welcome-home present! They make a picnic in her room and enjoy some chocolate. Jonathan tells her about the different buildings on the grounds and freaks Ava out when he talks about the mausoleum. She doesn't want dead people hanging around her new home! Jonathan tells her a ghost story about an amputee who haunts the estate and Ava pushes him away. Taking her hands, Jonathan tells her that there are no real ghosts, just a family of sorts living under one roof. Jonathan swears he won't judge her and neither will the others at the estate. Ava is worried though, and swears again that she wasn't involved in buying drugs from the dealer for herself. Worried about her past and how the others will react to her living there, Ava isn't ready to get too comfortable. She thinks Aidan and Julia will have a problem with her staying there. Jonathan promises that he and Di will smooth things over with the others. Feeling attracted to her, Jonathan asks her about her outfit - a sexy, black negligee - and she admits that she found it in a closet. She offers to change but Jonathan backpeddles, not wanting to show how much she affects him. As Jonathan leaves, Ava asks him to leave her door open and some lights on! Ava falls asleep and Jonathan returns to watch over her from the doorway.

"She is here to protect Lily," Jonathan says slowly. Ava gets mad, believing that Jonathan thinks the only way she can protect Lily is to leave her alone. Di leaves to grab them some breakfast. Alone, Jonathan asks why she left the Montgomery's. She gets sarcastic, not telling him anything. Jonathan wonders where she spent the $500 he gave her a few days before. Ava admits that she spent the dough on a new pair of shoes, annoying Jonathan. Di returns with breakfast and offers Ava a new place to stay - Wildwind! She tells Ava about all the room at the estate. Jonathan has one question - what will everyone else staying at Wildwind have to say about the new arrangements? The three head to the estate and Di invites Ava to make herself comfortable.

Ava tells them that Sean is using her past against her and begins naming all of Sean's crimes. Jack steps in, telling Ava that no amount of connections will save Sean. Angry, she asks for any proof that she was involved with the drugs. Sean swears that no one besides Ava had access to his jacket but she says that doesn't prove anything.
