    Over a picnic at the beach, Ava asks Jonathan if they can stay there all night. When he turns back to work - he brought his laptop to the beach - she does her best to distract him. They begin talking about the Lavery family and his past mental health issues. "Ryan gave me my life back," Jonathan says. They talk more about their families and for the first time Ava realizes she understands what love is - because of Lily! As they talk Jonathan suggests that they are both so attached to their siblings because their siblings are the only people who can really see them. Ava jumps up and runs to the water to play. Jonathan follows her. They return to the beach a while later and kiss passionately. Paparazzi are hiding in the bushes and start to take pictures! Jonathan suggests they go somewhere other than the beach but Ava is quite happy where they are. They drop the towel, giving the paparazzi a whole new angle!

    Friday, August 31 2007

    Krystal is shocked that JR has lost Tad and everyone worries where he could be - and if he'll miss his entire party. Erica asks Aidan where Tad may have gone but he doesn't have a clue. As they all discuss Tad's whereabouts, he sneaks into the bar without anyone noticing. He orders a drink from Wes, who begins to laugh. Zach and Kendall arrive and Tad finally steps up from his perch in one of the booths, announcing his arrival. And the birthday fun begins! Babe starts up a few games, first up is Guess The Year - based on Tad's different haircuts! Opal and Ruth win the game and a few rounds of free beer! Julia walks in and greets Jonathan and Ava. She asks about Jamie and Jonathan makes a quick exit. Babe sees her and they talk about Jamie a little. Meanwhile Zach and Erica are showing the crowd pictures of Ian and Spike. Opal brings up Cochlear Implants, making Kendall uncomfortable. Jack arrives at the party, interrupting a hot kiss between Jonathan and Ava. He apologizes for getting her involved in the drug bust but she could care less; Ava believes the bust made her career and thanks him! They all go inside and Aidan distracts Jack with questions about Greenlee. Seeing the tension between Jack and Erica from across the room, Tad asks Erica what the deal is now. She tells him about the new talk show, which is hilarious for Tad. Jack interrupts as Erica asks Tad for a kiss. Tad leaves. Babe and Josh are talking about Greenlee, both wondering where she is; Aidan and Amanda are taking advantage of a few free drinks at the bar. She asks him about Di and he changes the subject to poker, hoping to get a game going. Krystal gets a few birthday tributes going and the crowds talks Tad's greatest hits. JR introduces an email tribute from Jamie in Africa. Krystal takes centerstage with a song. Tad looks around at the room full of friends as Krystal begins to sing "Our Love Is Here To Stay". Kendall talks to Babe and Amanda about Fusion and Ava butts right in with her two cents. Kendall basically tells her to get lost. Ruth walks up and asks about Ian and Spike, excited about the prognosis for both boys. Kendall cuts her off when she brings up Cochlear Implants, saying she has another doctor in mind. Meanwhile at the birthday-boy's table Joe, Opal and a newly arrived Ruth are regaling Julia with stories of Tad's past. Sean and Colby listen in and she learns that Tad and Liza used to be an item. She can't believe it and asks Tad what really happened. Colby asks about Tad's other lovers but Tad clams up. He tells Colby he is much happier not being Tad-the-Cad. Kendall goes to Zach, tells him she has to leave to express some milk for Ian. He says he'll go to but Kendall tells him to stay behind with the boys and the poker game and gets Julia to drive her. Julia and Kendall leave. From outside, Greenlee watches the party go on. She starts to go inside, hesitates but finally decides to go inside. Aidan catches her on the way in and accidentally hits her ribs. Inside the party is beginning to break up. Tad joins Krystal at the bar and they talk about Jenny for a bit. Tad kisses Krystal and it turns passionate. She pulls away and neither knows what to think about it. They go their separate ways.

Opal, Ruth and Joe are helping Krystal and the others finish up the decorations for Tad's surprise party. Wes, a new bartender, arrives and Krystal introduces him around. Babe offers to give Wes the grand tour. Meanwhile, Amanda and Colby wonder if Tad is prepared for the night ahead. Krystal isn't sure but is fairly confident that JR will get Tad there on time.

She thanks Opal and Ruth for raising Tad the way they did.

He heads outside to see the girls, telling them he wants a seat for the next show! Amanda turns her anger on him while Ava laughs. Amanda tells him to bug off so they can talk. He leaves. Ava believes her trick paid off - because she has people talking again. "You think this is all real?" Amanda asks, telling Ava that no one is really interested in her yet and if she keeps it up she'll burn out before she even hits celebrity status. Ava doesn't believe her. Telling Amanda that she is in control and she has the power, Ava tells her handler that she doesn't need anyone telling her what to do or how to do it. Amanda thinks Ava is fooling herself. When Ava suggests that Amanda is simply jealous of her, Amanda packs up her things and leaves, telling Ava that she isn't going to be her handler any more!

Ava's new manager, Andy Conway, arrives to announce Ava's arrival - she walks in glammed to the nines and posing with every step. "Is that Paris Hilton or a pole dancer?" Amanda mumbles. Babe and JR are equally stunned by her appearance and her manager, who has supposedly gotten her several movie auditions - they are really porn roles! He tells Babe that Ava being the face of Fusion is too limiting; Babe takes offense. He shows her the contract, which Babe immediately tears into pieces! Angry, Ava lashes out at Babe, who tells Amanda to deal with Ava. Andy tells Ava she can't tear up his contract but when Babe shows him the contract Ava already signed with Fusion he realizes he doesn't have a leg to stand on. Ava tries to stop Amanda from escorting Andy out but he leaves anyway.

She manages to calm Ava down by showing her some "success stories" from Andy's stable of girls - none of them are the kind of successes that Ava envisioned.
