The Rush To Llantano River! image

After Todd plunges over the edge of The Palace Hotel roof, Marty stares down at the Llantano River then falls to the roof floor saying, "It's over."

Inside Room 703, John calls out to Marty then makes a call to the front desk! Suddenly, Marty appears, and John brings up her journal - and how Cole called him - then asks where Todd is. "He's gone," Marty replies. As John questions Marty about Todd, she confesses, "When I told him I hated him, he jumped off the roof." John quickly rushes out of the room!

Downstairs in the dining room, Clint and Nora demand to know why David is acting so strangely then are even more shocked when he asks to talk about the Buchanan family fortune! "We are after all brothers," David says. "Are we not?" Clint becomes more relieved when David talks about every man being brothers then listens as David retells his journey to becoming the man he is now - and how he's grateful that he wasn't successful in stealing the Buchanan fortune. "I'm no longer interested in money. I must ask you for your forgiveness," David finishes. Before Clint can answer, David briefly rushes to help an old woman, leaving Nora and Clint to wonder, "Is he for real?" Though the lady rants, "I don't need any help," David says, "Yes, you do, you're old." After the woman gets away, David rejoins Nora and Clint and again asks for forgiveness - so he can return to Tibet! Hearing that, Clint gives David his wholehearted forgiveness! However, David assures them that he won't be leaving Llanview until he atones to all of his sins! "My next stop is Dorian," David says then leaves - and Nora reminds Clint that Dorian's forgiveness could take forever!

Later, at a cleansing meeting with his Master, David continues on his journey to cleanse his soul - and to help others do the same!

Walking along the docks, Tea hears a splash then says, "What the hell was that?" However, Blair approaches and immediately warns her that if she goes after Starr - like she did Marty - she'll tear her limb from limb! As Blair rants about how Todd should be put away for life, Tea wonders what happened to Blair - seeing as Todd was the love of her life, leaving Blair to remind Tea that loving Todd leaves your life with misery.

Suddenly, Tea and Blair see John jump into the Llantano River and begin screaming John's name - wondering who he's looking for! With Marty now watching from the shadows, John pulls Todd from the water to find that he has a pulse - but is not breathing! Blair doesn't waste any time and starts to do CPR on Todd!

 image

Once Todd is revived, he sees Marty walking toward them then says, "I tired." Marty screams at John for saving Todd! Blair and Tea are stunned at Marty's rant then watch as Marty warns John to leave her alone! After Marty storms off, and Tea helps Todd up, Blair asks John, "You know more than you're saying, don't you?" But John assures her, "It doesn't matter now."

Staring at the Angels Square statue, Marty hears a motorcycle then turns when a man asks, "Need a ride somewhere." Marty slowly walks to the bike, climbs on and holds on tight as they take off into the night!

In Angels Square, Jared professes his love to Natalie then tells her about Clint's job offer, wondering if Clint is only offering him the job because he's marrying his daughter. Natalie reassures him that Clint is a businessman first then says, "Can you imagine the damage if David Vickers had known he was Asa's son?" Though Jared doesn't want a handout, Natalie pushes him to take the job - a job he loved! Finally, Jared realizes he can have it all - Natalie, the job, and a wonderful life.

Still in St. Blazes, Alex rethinks telling Dorian about David - until Dorian reminds her that she'll soon be the owner of the island, leading Alex to confess, "David Vickers is really David Buchanan. Asa's long lost son." After Alex tells Dorian the whole story, Dorian's in awe, but leery, leaving Alex to finish with the reason why Nigel gave her St. Blazes - to protect the Buchanan's!

 image

Once Alex is gone, Beaver Calhoun appears at the bar, asking for Alex - and showing around a picture of David Vickers! Dorian quickly approaches Asa's lawyer and asks him to join her - and tries to persuade him to open up about the man he's looking for!

Back at the Buchanan mansion, Renee watches Asa's latest will reading and grieves the fact that David Vickers is Asa's son. However, she can't help wonder how David would've turned out had he known his real family. Renee reminisces about Emma Bradley, and about giving her advice, while all the time she thought her baby was Ned's. Suddenly, Clint and Nora arrive and let them know about David's presence in Llanview. When Renee worries about David finding out the truth, Clint appears to have an idea on how to keep David from finding out he's a Buchanan - and a sole heir at that!
