Jess, Tess, Do Confess! image

When Todd catches Tess flipping out at a nurse at the OBGYN's office, he stops her by saying, "Hi Jessica." After Tess apologizes to the nurse, and admits to Todd that she hasn't been herself these days, Todd replies, "No, you haven't." When Tess puts two and two together, and accuses Todd of trying to get info out of the doctor about Starr's baby, Todd warns, "Listen, Jessica, I wouldn't press me on this because I'll press right back." Tess blames Nash's death, and Natalie, Jared and Tina's presence at Llanfair, for her bad mood then suggests that Tina go live with Todd! "Forget it," Todd says, causing Tess to start ranting and raving about how selfish Todd is - and Todd finally realizes that Jess is Tess! However, without coming out and letting Tess know, Todd taunts her by calling her 'Jessica' at every turn then walks out the door!

In 2008, outside of the Buchanan mansion, Bo makes a call to someone asking them to look everywhere until they find Rex - and his friend Gigi.

Inside the Buchanan mansion, just as Jared agrees to do Clint's dirty work, Bo appears! Bo wonders what Jared is doing there, which is Jared's cue to leave, then Bo tells Clint about a 'dream' he had. When Nigel comes into the room, Bo can't help but stare then explains that Nigel was in the same dream that Jared was in - except Nigel was Chuck Sr.! After a little laugh, Clint goes to take care of some work and Nigel gives Bo some letters that he wrote to Asa while in Vietnam. Suddenly, Matthew appears, and Bo takes him in his arms and promises to be a better father. Renee is next to appear, and Matthew and Renee inform Bo that Lindsay went to prison for killing Spencer Truman. When Clint rejoins them, Bo briefly asks about Jared, to which Clint claims to be putting his feelings aside for Natalie's sake, then Bo hears about John becoming the new commissioner.

John arrives at Rodies and demands that the judge give him a warrant to search Todd Manning's house! John explains that Manning's bodyguard claims that Todd is holding a witness to Lee's murder in his house. Although the judge gives John his search warrant, he warns that this is his one chance - and that John better find something at Manning's!

Over at Todd's, Todd arrives home, with Tess close behind. Although she wants to look around, and accuses Todd of hiding something, Todd stops her by saying, "You're Tess!" Just as Todd grabs the phone to call Viki, his doorbell rings!

When Starr and Cole come face to face at the country club, they bicker for a bit then admit to missing the other - so much. Over talk of Marcie's offer for them to be a part of the baby's life, both agree that it wouldn't be possible - then Cole snaps, "I'll never forgive you for giving up our baby." Just then, a group of high school friends show up and ask if Starr's gained some weight. "Oh, my, God," one of the girls says. "Starr's not getting fat. Starr has a baby bump!" Starr admits to her pregnancy then watches as Cole follows their old friends to the pool.

After Brody leaves a message on Gigi's cell phone, demanding to know where she is, Layla approaches the bar at Rodies and asks if Gigi received the package that Adriana sent her. Once Layla hears that Gigi is still out looking for Rex she says, "That can't be good news for Adriana - or you." Suddenly, Madame Delphina appears, hands Brody back his check for five thousand dollars then says, "It's over, she's not coming back… I lost her." With Layla standing by listening, Delphina says that although Gigi found Rex she 'can't' come back. After Delphina leaves, Brody screams, "Gigi would never leave Shane," to which Layla asks, "Not even for Rex?" When Layla leaves, Brody worries about not being Shane's real father - and takes out the toothbrush with Rex's DNA on it!

Back in 1968, Rex apologizes to Gigi about the 'Emma incident' then worries that if they don't get back soon he'll be shipped off to Vietnam today! Just then, Professor Fina appears with some sort of gadget and reports that the porthole has closed - and that they'll have to wait another twenty years to see 2008! Gigi immediately thinks of Shane, flips out and snaps at the professor, "You do something - anything!" Thinking about a past documentation, about 'a force' that once reopened the porthole, the professor says there is hope - but it's doubtful! Just then, Clint (Jared) appears and wonders where their Pa is, as no one has seen him since the day before. Once Clint leaves, Rex talks about having to leave for Vietnam then the professor makes a quick exit - but not before telling Rex to look him up in twenty years!

Knowing she can't get back to 2008, Gigi tells Rex, "I'm already going to lose Shane, I can't lose you too. Let's runaway!" Rex explains that he can't runaway - and that he can't change history - then says, "I have to make it through this war for Bo." Although Rex promises to be back for her, in two years, their conversation is halted when Renee (Dallas), Emma (Gigi) and Spencer (Shane) stop by to say goodbye. As Rex listens to Renee say, "This world needs you, Bo Buchanan," Gigi can't help but call out to Spencer and rush over to give him a hug goodbye. But Spencer pulls away…

Later, suited in his Army uniform, Rex is all ready to leave for Vietnam. After Olympia (Lindsay) and Clint (Jared) say their final goodbyes, a young Asa appears - and Rex realizes that Bo must have made it back to 2008! "If he can make it back then we can too," Gigi says, but young Asa reminds Bo (Rex) that it's time to leave - before the government counts him as AWOL!
