The Killer Strikes Again! image

Wanting to clear John as soon as possible, just as Bo explains what's going on with Fish and Talia, the mayor appears, ranting about John being the killer! Though Fish defends John, Bo leads the mayor away - and Talia warns Fish not to tip John off, for John's own good! Nora and Bo back John up, but the mayor orders Talia and Fish to arrest John now! After the mayor leaves, Bo, Nora, Talia and Fish discuss John not having any motive - and Nora says that he wasn't even near Zach's room. Forced to tell the truth, Talia explains that John was in Zach's room when the break-in was reported. Bo and Nora lash out at Talia and Fish as they explain how John has been investigating the murders, unofficially, then Bo demands that they find John and bring him in! "Somebody is setting John up," Bo says.

John arrives home to the mansion and finds Marty waiting for him, who admits that she did remember Zach - and explains how all of the memories of the rape came rushing back. Over talk of Zach, John confides that he doesn't think he's the killer, and Marty knows John will find out who is. "I hope so," John says. "Before whoever is does it again."

Outside, someone peers through the bushes and stares at John and Marty through the window… As John and Marty make their way out onto the patio, Marty brings up Starr's involvement with Schuyler then they both hear something from the bushes! John orders Marty to go inside and lock the doors!

When Fish and Talia arrive at the mansion, Fish goes to the front door, and Talia goes around back. Suddenly, someone appears in front of Talia! As she says, "What are you doing…" the person attacks her! Shortly after, while Fish talks to Marty at the front door, John finds blood on the patio, sees someone in the pool then pulls a dead Talia out of the water!

At Hope's gravesite, Starr and Cole make plans to find out why their baby died, as Starr talks about Chloe's christening. "I held her, and it made me think about how things were before we lost Hope. I wish I could just go backward," Starr confesses, and Cole admits he feels the same way. Starr feels that the only way to let Hope go is to find out why she died then says, "Then maybe there would be hope for us." After they both agree to be there for each other, Cole and Starr make a vow not to let anyone else know that they are looking for the truth.

In an examine room, Michael checks on Stacy, who later calls Roxy at the special care facility and tells her and Kyle to hurry up already! Just then, Rex appears in her room - and Stacy wonders how much of her conversation he heard! After Rex says he didn't hear anything, Stacy talks about how the procedure is hard - but says that she'd do anything for Shane. Though Rex doesn't condone what Stacy's done in the past, he doesn't know how he's going to repay her - and Stacy says, "You'll think of something. I'd do anything for you… and Shane." Just then, Schuyler appears, and Stacy starts making excuses when Schuyler says that Stacy lives with him - and that they are ex's. Feeling uncomfortable, Schuyler leaves. Over talk of Gigi, Stacy bashes her sister for what she's done to Rex.

Back at the special care facility, as Roxy watches Kyle taking the samples from Rex's father, a nurse calls from the other side of the curtain, and Roxy goes to buy Kyle some more time! However, when the nurse starts to push past her, Kyle emerges and claims he's Roxy's nephew, who is an intern, but the nurse goes in to check her patient. Finding nothing out of the ordinary, she comments on his normal condition, that he doesn't have any brain activity," then leaves. Having gotten what they came for, Roxy and Kyle leave with the samples.

When Marcie goes to see Shane, she tries to cheer him up by talking about Paris, Texas. As Marcie talks about Shane having a donor, and two parents who are back together again, Gigi breaks down and rushes out of the room. Once alone, Shane confides in Marcie that there's something bad going on with his mom and dad.

 image

Marcie goes to find Gigi, who admits that she and Rex broke up - and that she slept with Brody. Marcie doesn't buy it, and just as she presses Gigi to fix things with Rex, Schuyler appears, introducing himself then says he just left Stacy's room - she was in there with Shane's father.

Kyle and Roxy arrive back at the hospital, and as Roxy goes into Shane's room, Schuyler makes a joke to Kyle about holding his lunch - in reference to the cooler he's holding! Back out in the hallway, Kyle gives Roxy the samples then she orders him to page a certain number in a few minutes.

 image

As Gigi walks into Stacy's room, Rex is thanking Stacy again - and holding her hand! Once Rex takes his hand away, Gigi says that all that matters is that Shane gets better. Suddenly, Michael appears, ready to take Stacy's samples, in order to start the transplant! As Stacy acts as though she's feeling sick, Roxy barges in, tells Rex and Gigi that Shane needs him then switches the blood samples after Michael goes to take a page! With Rex's father's blood now switched in place of Stacy's, Michael reappears and takes the blood for the transplant! As Stacy is hiding her samples, Schuyler enters and asks, "What was that?"

In his room, with Gigi and Rex, Shane begins the bone marrow transplant.

 image

Not wanting Shane to see her upset, Gigi steps out in the hallway, and Roxy reminds her that after the transplant is over, she can expose Stacy - because not Stacy, or anyone, can take the bone marrow back!

At the special care facility, the brain wave machines hooked up to Rex's father start to show activity!
