    Brad Says Goodbye.

    Thursday, December 24 2009

    Brad is following Katie and Jacob around as they shop for the holidays. She bumps into a Santa Claus and he wishes her a Merry Christmas. Janet and Dusty walk by talking. Liberty and Parker come out of a shop as soon as they're gone. She tells him she's dropping out of school and he should leave her alone. Jack and Carly walk by. She asks him to wait while she does some shopping. As Jack looks in a shop window, he flashes back to playing with Brad when they were children. Carly returns and finds Jack staring. He can't pretend that everything is okay anymore and walks away. Carly trails after him. Simon and Henry walk by. Simon asks Henry if he can stay with him for a few days. Brad wanders over to Henry so Simon walks away. Henry tells the ghost he has to spend the holidays alone. After he walks away, Santa walks over to Brad. He can actually hear him. Brad's shocked and begs him to make him 'not dead'. "You don't ask for much," Santa laughs. Brad is sick of being stuck and wishes he could let go. Santa tells him to stop 'kvetching' and help the people he loves let go of him.

    Santa and Brad go to where Liberty first saw him on a TV in a shop window. She arrives with Parker and talks about the first time she saw her father. All of the memories she has of him are still in Oakdale and she's scared that if she leaves, they will disappear. Parker says things don't work that way. She asks him to leave her alone. When he does, she watches Brad in a rerun on the TV. Brad says his hair looked better back then. Liberty hears this. Santa explains to Brad that he's not alive and he needs to concentrate on being the 'mensch' that his daughter needs. Liberty and Brad hug and he says he's sorry about the baby. He tells her that he loves her as if he'd known her for her entire life. He tells her to go to college and be whatever she wants. She helped him grow up, not the other way around. Brad promises to watch over her always. She doesn't understand so he points at one of the stars and tells her that it will be him, looking down on her always.

    Brad stuns Janet when he walks into the Metro. She hugs him and screams. He tells her he's still dead and he's only there to say goodbye. She tells him how much she and Liberty need him. He thinks she seems beaten down. Janet explains that Jack left her. "My brother is an idiot. Don't let him drag you down," he says. They talk about their prom night, the night they made Liberty. She loved him in spite of how stupid he was. He tells her that he was lucky and Jack will realize how lucky he is too. Their song comes on and they dance until Dusty comes in and catches her crying and dancing with thin air. She begins furiously wrapping gifts. They hang some mistletoe and kiss.

    Brad tracks his brother down at the bar. At first, Jack just thinks he's drunk. "I was wondering when you were going to get around to haunting me," Jack jokes. Brad doesn't see the point of tormenting him when he already torments himself. Jack tries to walk away. Brad grabs him and leads him away. They go to the dark warehouse where the shooting happened and Brad tells him that there is no way he could have seen anything or known what was going on. "It was an accident," Brad insists. They go to the farmhouse and look at Emma's Christmas wreathes. Jack sulks and drinks. Brad repeats that he forgives him and tells him to get on with his life. "I'm not going to let you use my death as an excuse to bail on the people who love you," Brad says. He asks him to look out for his son and help him become a man. "Be Jack again. Be my brother or I swear I really will haunt you," Brad says. Jack weeps. They hug.

    At home, Carly is on the phone with JJ, telling him that Jack isn't around yet. Parker and Sage ask her why she's pretending he will come. When they turn around, Jack comes in. He apologizes for not being himself lately. They all hug. Brad and Santa watch through the window. Santa says it's time to say goodbye to Katie. Brad can't do that. Santa says that's tough. Brad rants at him.

    Brad materializes at Katie's. She's on the floor crying and wondering why Brad left her. Jacob cries. Brad goes in to his room and sings to him. Katie can hardly believe what she's seeing. "I knew you would come back to me!" she exclaims. They kiss. He tells her he can't stay, he has no choice. She wonders why he would come back at all then. It's too hard to look at him, knowing it will be the last time. He tells her that this is a gift. They decorate the apartment and talk about Jacob and how she keeps finding his old socks all over the house. The bells begin to ring. When they go into the bedroom to make love, Jacob begins crying. They sit with the baby in bed. There was so much that he wanted to teach his son... Brad tells Katie he wants her to fall in love again someday. That doesn't mean she loves him any less. He asks her to promise to live her own life. She promises. They finish decorating the tree. Santa arrives and tells Brad it's time to go. Brad cries. Katie begs for more time. "Even if we'd had years, it wouldn't have been enough," he tells her. He'll love her always. She says goodbye as he fades away. "I'll see you in my dreams," she sobs.

    At Henry's, Katie tells Brad that she wants him to go so she can move on with her life. He refuses. "Leave me alone!" she shouts. When she tries to walk out, Brad closes the door. Henry tells Katie that it was indeed Brad who did it. She admits that she would jump at a chance with Brad again, but she can't have a relationship with a ghost. Katie sits down and Henry repeats everything Brad says to her. Brad reminds her of their first meeting and how he came to care about her. He asks her to believe in him and their vows; he begs her to let him stay in her life. Henry becomes uncomfortable and refuses to relay everything. Katie demands to hear it all. Brad continues, admitting that he doesn't know what kind of life they can have but he would stay by her side to watch their son grow up. Katie weeps. She wants him in their son's life but she can't be with some 'vapor' she can't even see. She begs Brad to touch her hand. When he tries, she can feel something. "I love you," she cries before running out.

    Brad is actually still at Henry's being berated for taking advantage of Katie. Henry refuses to help him steal her life. Brad says he will find another way to be with her.

    In his room, Henry is congratulating himself on winning a poker game. Brad reminds him that he wouldn't have won without his help. Henry says they are even now. The ghost wants to use his body again so that he can touch Katie once more. "I want us to be a family," he says. Henry tells him it's too late. Brad isn't ready to go yet. Henry refuses him access to his body again so Brad vows to find another way.

    At home, Katie explains to Simon that she is eager to get rid of the apartment. It's haunted by memories and Brad's things. The real estate agent arrives.

Henry admits to Katie that Brad scared her away. Katie's sick of this and leaves. Simon urges Henry to fix this fast. He shouts at Brad not to force Katie to live in a place that makes her miserable.
