Kirsten falls ill, Farah has a change of heart, and Jenna wants another baby.
Kirsten and Kelly have lunch and laugh about soap storylines. Kelly jokes that no one wears a condom on soaps. Their talk turns to Farah. Kirsten claims she has more pressing issues to deal with, which hopefully include getting her roots done. Kirsten believes they are different people than when they were younger.
Nadia and Brandon return home to enjoy some down time from not working. Brandon reveals he has taken a modeling gig. Nadia is excited for him, but he is worried about being too short. She bums him further because she might be on a movie set and miss his runway debut. Brandon just needs to look at himself in the mirror.
Galen and Jenna let their kids destroy their house with toys. Jenna tells a silent Galen they can make things better by having a baby girl. Galen seems like he would rather have a Dimera baby than another one with Jenna. She drags him to a fertility specialist about gender selection. A giddy Jenna is excited that multiples are possible, but the doctor points out the miscarriage rate is high. The doctor leaves them to talk alone. Jenna is disappointed that he would rather check out the pornography in the bathroom than discuss more babies.
At a Soap Star Photo Shoot, JP refuses to clip his beard, but Farah gives orders to get rid of it. She is even more weirded out seeing Kirsten. Kirsten wanders off the set and has no energy. Kelly worries for her friend.
Farah stops by Nadia and Brandon's house and jokes about how bad her orange hair looked when they worked together on "Days of our Lives." Farah brings up Kirsten and wonders what was wrong with her at the photo shoot. She believes Kirsten wasn't happy with her hair and makeup and can't stop talking about her. Brandon encourages her to drink more, because alcohol is the only thing that might make Farah less annoying.
On the "General Hospital" set, a concerned Kelly watches as a disoriented Kirsten lays in a hospital bed. She questions Kirsten about what is going on. Kirsten doesn't want to talk about it, but promises to when she is ready. Kelly is heartbroken to see her in so much pain.
JP and Brandon take a run through New York to prep for Brandon's runway show. Brandon worries that he is not buff enough, but he feels better when Nadia is able to come be with him for his big debut. They pal around and party with Farah and JP. Farah is ready for Nadia to be done with her movie so she'll have a friend again, since she's run all of her other ones off. Nadia drops the bombshell that Kirsten is being recast on "General Hospital." Farah feels bad for her and wants to reach out to her.
Nadia has to leave Brandon in New York because of work. He is bummed to lose his rock, but playfully spanks her on her way out the door. Despite being nervous and without his girl, he mans up and rocks the runway show. When he returns home, he and Nadia have a date and toast to understanding one another's worlds. He wants a day alone with her and no cell phones. Nadia is scared, but she might want to take him up on the deal before he threatens a double date with Galen and Jenna.
Galen and Jenna take a walk through the Hollywood Hills. She is happy he wants to spend time with her. Galen can't imagine adding another child to their brood. He wants to enjoy life in the now. She agrees to close the door temporarily. They return home with their senior dog, who is more entertaining than this pair.
Farah and JP return to LA. Farah looks for news online about why Kirsten is out of work. Farah is scared, but Danny tells her the Kirsten she knew is gone. She calls Tiffany, one of Kirsten's friends, to get information. Tiffany gives Farah an earful about how awful she is, but does admit Kirsten has endometriosis and it is a serious situation. Tiffany thinks it shouldn't take someone getting sick to make them be nice, causing Farah to get defensive and end the call. She goes to her mom for advice. Farah thinks that hearing the sad news makes her want to forget about the bad blood. Farah's mom thinks Kirsten has had it rough. Farah cries, maybe because she's worried for Kirsten, or maybe because a situation isn't about her.
Kirsten seemed so frail and ill. I really hope she is doing better. I hope to see more on how she's doing in future episodes. I can't tell if Farah was genuinely concerned for Kirsten, or just nosy. Brandon seemed a bit needy tonight, but it's sweet how happy Nadia makes him. Why are Galen and Jenna on this show again? Just talking about them is making me fall asleep. I'm looking forward to some drama between the stars and their parents next week. Let me know what you think by sharing your comments below.
