    You cover up your fear with your cruelty

    Thursday, February 07 2008

    In her room, Colleen tells the family she has cancer and has fought it for so long but now it's too late for her. She'll soon pass on but is happy to be able to visit with her family and her beloved brother. Shawn cries that God wouldn't be this cruel to take her away but Colleen says this is fate - not God's work. When John disrespects Colleen, Shawn stands up for her and Bo tells John through gritted teeth that he has crossed the line. Colleen says it's fine - he has a right to be angry or to hate her for what she has done but John says he doesn't hate her - he feels nothing for her. Then he corrects himself and admits the only feeling he has is disappointment for not killing her when he had the chance! Hope yells to him to stop being so cruel but John thinks Colleen's the cruel one and calls her manipulative for the way she treated Santo. Colleen retorts that she loved Santo enough to let him go. She knows Marlena understands this and stands up for Santo. She tells them he loved her but she couldn't allow him to leave his wife. John comments that he doesn't think she did him a favor by faking her death. Stefano told him that because of her faked death, Santo became a broken shell of a man who taught Stefano how to resent. Colleen doesn't believe this and tells him Santo was kind. She thinks John is just as kind but his kindness is buried deep inside and she's sure that John's bitterness scares him more than anyone else. "You cover up your fear with your cruelty," she finishes, before asking Shawn and Belle to come to her. Shawn takes Belle's hand in his and they sit with Colleen who tells them they're the future of the family. She asks that they not forget where they come from and says her tearful goodbyes. "It's alright, I promise you. I love you." She says. Shawn promises not to let her down. Colleen asks to talk to Bo and says though he doesn’t have Brady blood, he's got the spirit. "I hear you're a pain in the arse," she says, smiling, and everyone laughs. She tells Hope to stand by her man and thinks he's a lucky man to have her. She asks him to take care of her brother. Kayla says she wishes she could help. Colleen calls her a healer and tells Marlena she is the tower of strength in the family and it pleases her to know she'll do what she can to keep the family together. Colleen asks for time alone with Shawn and John, so Hope hugs her and says she'll never forget her. Bo tells Colleen he has always thought of himself as a Brady and always will. Shawn tells her he'll never let Claire forget her and everyone waits outside the door.

    Belle gives John the medallion that Colleen gave to her. She wants him to give it to Sami and thinks it'll mean a lot to her. After she leaves, John drops it in the trash and asks Marlena snidely how much more time Colleen has. Marlena gives him a dirty look and pulls the medallion out of the trash while Shawn Sr. takes the blame for this and asks Colleen's forgiveness. Colleen reminds him that he did the right thing years ago by telling her the truth about Santo being married and therefore, there is nothing to forgive. She wants him to remember her from their childhood. Shawn hugs Colleen and says, "I love you Leenie. We'll be together again." Shawn leaves with one last glance back as Colleen holds her arms out to John. "You won't deny me one last dying wish." She begs him to come to her and John reluctantly goes to Colleen and sits at her side and allows her to hold him close. Marlena struggles with her tears as she and Shawn watch.

    Outside Colleen's door, the family wishes Sami could have met Colleen. Shawn and Bo worry about Shawn and Kayla says it'll be hard on him. Bo knows it's important that Pop is here for her and that they're there for him, when she's dead and gone. Marlena leaves Colleen's room and calls everyone back. "It won't be long now," she says quietly. Colleen holds John and tells him she loves him so. She asks him to hold her in his arms, one last time. "Please John." John moves closer and holds her close. "I have to rest now, John," Colleen repeats, over and over until she passes away quietly, in John's arms. John moves away from her and Shawn pays his last respects and kisses his sister's forehead. Bo covers Colleen with a blanket as the family quietly weeps.

John notices Marlena come to and tells her to stay put but she sees the knife in his hand and grabs his leg and yells, "No!" John pushes her away hard, knocking her against the door and Colleen says she has one last thing to say. "You'd be killing your own mother!" John is poised to strike but shakes his head and pauses in disbelief. She has proof and shows him her necklace with the medallion and Marlena gasps. She takes out the photo of John and his mother and Colleen verifies that's her, with John! She's wearing the same medallion in the photo as she wears now. She says she recognizes his eyes but they're now cold hard eyes like Stefano's. Marlena promises John that Stefano can't hurt them anymore and asks Colleen how she happens to be John's mother. Colleen says she found out she was with child, after she ran. Not wanting Santo to know, she had the child away from her hometown and named him Ryan. She escaped to Argentina. John wants to know more and Colleen says she couldn't come between a husband and wife and elected to stay hidden. She says an Irish sister gave her a letter of introduction at a parish and she stayed there, gave birth to John, in the peace and calm in the convent and they lived there for a time. When they had to leave, she took John to an orphanage and mended clothing for them. In return, she was able to see John Sundays. She says she lived for those days. John asks her to go on. She says unfortunately, she had a sewing machine accident and hurt her hand. She went into the hospital, delirious. When she finally got her strength back, she went to the orphanage but John was gone, the head master had been dismissed and nobody could tell her where he was! She was thrown in the streets and looked for him ever since. "Only recently I found he was adopted by the Alamains," she says and was worried that there was no telling what they'd done if they'd known he was half-brother to Stefano! "So Santo DiMera is my father," John states. Colleen says she has only been with one man. Stefano found out she was alive a little over a year ago. Colleen couldn't risk contacting her own brother because of Stefano's obsession. She tells John that it was God who brought them together and John thrusts his knife at Colleen. "You kill me, you'll destroy what's left of yourself," she says. John makes a dash for the door and Marlena runs after him.
