The Oldest Mommy on the Playground.Monday, October 20 2008
Reva doesn't feel blessed anymore, Alan turns to Jeffrey, Bill is distracted and Cyrus snoops.
Dinah is shocked to walk into the basement and discover that Lizzie and Grady are gone. She begins babbling to herself and searches for options. When she goes up to her office, she's surprised to find Cyrus waiting for her. He asks her where his brother is. She plays dumb. He asks her what she has his brother doing for her and warns her not to get him involved in anything illegal. Dinah claims that he is just protecting her. Cyrus can tell she's lying and asks her to lay off. She insists that Grady is just another name on payroll.
At the mansion, Bill attempts to dissuade Frank from searching Lizzie and tells him that she is just off on business. After Frank leaves, Bill pours a drink. Alan walks in, telling Bill that he is as useless as his wheelchair. Alan isn't happy to see that Bill still has the cash and points out that he has screwed everything up. They begin arguing. Bill taunts him to try and get Lizzie back. Alan says he'll do what has to be done. Bill claims that he still calls the shots. Hilda arrives and happily greets Alan before reminding Bill that he has a meeting at Towers. Alan scowls at him and suggests that Bill is exploiting the situation. Bill throws a tantrum and walks out.
Frank calls Jeffrey about the kidnapping. Jeffrey can't do anything until it is reported. Reva needs a distraction and asks for details. She urges him to get involved. He offers to do that, assuming that she must imagine Jonathan could be involved. He leaves, promising to bring back pancakes and sauerkraut.
Jeffrey goes to Company and tells Buzz about going on the lookout for Lizzie. He admits that he has changed since he went 'domestic', but there is still enough of his old self in him to manage it.
Dinah shows up at Towers and is startled to find Buzz behind the bar (he's picking something up). He makes her a drink and she tells him that the thing she has always wanted is her family's respect but it seems to be slipping through her fingers. "Screw 'em," Buzz says, encouraging her to forget her family and make herself happy.
While Reva is working out at the gym, a woman approaches her and explains that she will be her trainer. Afterwards, she goes to her doctor's appointment. A woman in the waiting room begins asking her how she got pregnant and what treatments she might have used. Reva is not amused.
Cyrus wanders into Company when Frank spots him. They bicker and Frank brings up all of the problems Cyrus has caused. Cyrus urges him to move on. Frank admits that Cyrus did Marina a favor – because of him, she ended up with Mallet. After Frank walks off, Ashlee sits down with Cyrus. She tells him that Grady dumped Daisy and hooked up with Dinah. He says it's just a job. She thinks that Grady is 'plugging Dinah's leaks' and says that she saw Dinah making out with him. She walks out as Reva walks in. When she sits down, she orders some uncharacteristic food. Buzz asks her what's going on. She complains about being 'the oldest mommy on the playground' and how everyone keeps asking her if she is part of some scientific experiment. It doesn't feel like she's blessed anymore; she just feels like a freak. He teases her until she begins loudly declaring to everyone that she is pregnant.
Alan drifts into Jeffrey's office and sees him reading baby books. When Jeffrey tells him Reva is pregnant, Alan bursts out laughing and then congratulates him, though he warns him about Reva's 'sketchy' history as a mother. Pointedly, he asks him if he wants to be a father or if he misses the guy he used to be. Finally, Alan asks Jeffrey to help him find Lizzie. "I want your special skills," he says. Jeffrey reminds him that it's been years since he did work like that. Alan makes it clear that he wants Lizzie found and the kidnapper to pay 'with his last breath'. They finally agree to terms and Jeffrey promises not to let anyone know they've had this discussion. After Alan leaves, Jeffrey takes out his gun and lays it on top of a parenting magazine.
Reva returns home and rehearses telling her children about being pregnant. When she hears a car pull up, she runs over and is surprised to find Josh in the doorway.
Cyrus returns to WSPR to look for Dinah. She's not around so he snoops, heading down to the basement and discovering a piece of the rope Lizzie was tied with.
Bill is at Towers meeting with Decker and their investors. Bill is distracted but tries to answers questions. He's not impressing anyone. Dinah watches from across the room before walking over and lending her support. Bill begins to ramble about doing things for love and walks away. Dinah stops him and tells him that he needs to pull himself together. He asks her to deal with this while he searches for Lizzie and walks out. Dinah returns to the investors and claims that Bill has food poisoning and had to go. Decker asks her to step in for her brother. She does.
Bill returns to the mansion and asks Alan if there is any news. Bill begins drinking while Alan mocks him. Alan's sure that Lizzie will come back and set things straight. Bill says that Alan will be left out when she comes back. Alan smirks.
