    No One Is Careful All The Time.

    Wednesday, October 16 2013

    Carly rushes to Franco's side when Derek knocks him out at the gym. Carly's concerned and wants to know why they are sparring. Franco just had brain surgery and doesn't know anything about boxing. He believes he's more resilient than she thinks but Carly helps him up to take him to the hospital. She shoots Derek a dirty look when he asks if their lunch date is still on. Later, Ava stops by eager to have Derek sign Diane's contract. She brags about all the money they can make off of Franco. Derek's not interested. Someone might find out he's her silent party. He's already established as someone interested in art so she doesn't see that being a problem. Derek thinks it's worth taking the chance, especially to see the look on Franco's face now that they're fighting over Carly. Ava's surprised and annoyed at his interest in Carly. She wants him to be careful.

    At the Metro Court, Franco takes advantage of Carly's attentions. She wants him to go to the hospital. He'd rather kiss her but Carly thinks he should kiss his 'groupie' Diane. Franco doesn't have groupies anymore. He declares he's not sleeping with Diane. She's not convinced. As Franco repeats that there is nothing going on, Diane barges in saying, "Franco, I need you now." Carly doesn't want to hear it and leaves.

Franco's 'date' with Diane was an obvious attempt to make Carly jealous. He denies it, and then asks Derek if it worked. Derek thinks Carly might be interested in him and since she's attractive, he might be interested too. Franco wants to know what Derek's price is. Derek doesn't need his money and Carly doesn't need his protection. Derek offers a wager - they will box to decide who backs off of Carly. Shawn overhears the exchange nearby and watches as they get in the ring before leaving. Franco and Derek bait each other between blows. Later Carly shows up and demands to know what Franco is doing. Derek knocks him out.

He suggests she start by looking in Ava's room and jokes she probably already barged into her room like she did his. Carly owns the hotel and will go where she pleases. She complains about Ava preying on Morgan. Derek recognizes that Morgan's all grown up. He thinks she's putting too much focus on Morgan in lieu of her own relationship problems. Derek remembers her fight with her 'boyfriend' at the pier. It's obvious to Derek that he's gay. Carly professes she's moved on and invites him to dinner.

Franco gives it high praise and bemoans the distraction it's become for him. Heather grabs something from her purse and is about to destroy the striped painting when Franco screams out for her to stop.

After, Franco catches Derek on his way out to dinner. In the restaurant, Olivia curses Derek Wells for his newest headline 'Corinthos in the Crossfire' before Spinelli and Maxie arrive. She greets them as 'the Jackal and the Backstabber' and jokes they need their own show where they commit crimes on their friends.

Spinelli interjects after Maxie takes blame. He's interested in how to proceed so they can raise the baby. They can't live without their daughter. Olivia knew this was going to happen. She begs them to tread lightly; their new beginning is the end for Dante and Lulu. Maxie receives Lulu's call. They need to meet. Nearby, Olivia shows Carly the newspaper and notes there's a lot of negative news aimed at Sonny. Carly doesn't want to talk about Derek Wells right now. She has a date with him.
