Full detailed profile on Rex Balsom Played by John-Paul Lavoisier on One Life To Live Daytime Soap Opera.
In their room in Rio, Rex returns Aubrey's kiss then pulls away. Aubrey apologizes for kissing Rex. Though he'll always love Gigi, Rex understands how Aubrey's feeling. He's feeling it too, but isn't ready to be with anyone and says, "But, if I were…"
Dr. Fascinella meets with Cutter and 'Stacy' in one of the exam rooms and wonders if 'Stacy' is upset with the results of her plastic surgery. Cutter explains 'Stacy's' memory loss, but the doctor becomes preoccupied with the opera music playing. He talks about turning someone into Erica Kane then looks behind 'Stacy's' ears. Out in the hall, he privately tells Cutter that 'Stacy' never had plastic surgery by him or anyone else. The woman in the room is the original, Gigi Morasco. Out in the waiting room, Rex and Aubrey, dressed as exterminators, claim they're there on a call. Over talk of bed bugs, the receptionist freaks out and briefly leaves. They dig around in files. When she returns, they claim it was a false alarm and rush off.
In their room in Rio, Rex wakes up from a nightmare and grabs Aubrey, who's standing over him. Rex apologizes then briefly checks in with Shane. Rex tells Aubrey he relived finding Gigi dead through his dream. He gives Aubrey a play-by-play and thanks her for being there with him. They hug. Rex doesn't believe Alex had surgery to look like Gigi and needs to find the woman who did. Later, Aubrey becomes flustered, while on the phone with Rama, when Rex appears in a towel. She hangs up. Rex warns the water is cold. That's okay, Aubrey needs a cold shower. Soon after, Aubrey appears in a towel. After she helps Rex get out of a disguise, Aubrey kisses him.
In Rio, Aubrey tries distracting Dr. Fascinella's receptionist, claiming she wants to surprise her boyfriend with some new boobs. The woman catches Rex trying to break into the exam room and runs to find security. Just as Rex is about to break down the door, wanting to see who Cutter's hiding inside, Cutter appears with a woman in a wheelchair. Her face is wrapped in bandages. Rex and Aubrey fill Cutter in on their theories on how he snagged a Gigi lookalike. Aubrey unwraps the woman's bandages. Rex is stunned to see Alex. 'Stacy' listens from the other room, as Cutter admits Alex is his phantom Gigi. Alex read about Cutter and Aubrey's initial scam, tracked him down and teamed up with Cutter. She wanted her share of the Buchanan money. Aubrey doesn't think Rex would've mistaken Alex for Gigi. Rex remembers hearing about Dr. Fascinella making someone look like Pine Valley's Erica Kane. The doctor's ahead of his time. It's possible he thought Alex was Gigi. 'Stacy' hears how upset Rex is, talking about how he's chased Gigi long enough. Security appears and drags Aubrey and Rex away. Alex was glad to help Cutter. She hopes they see each other again one day. Out in the hallway, Rex tells Aubrey he's convinced that the Gigi lookalike wasn't Alex and is still in the building.
Rex and Aubrey enter Dr. Fascinella's office in Rio. They show the receptionist a photo of Cutter and Gigi. The woman refuses to break anyone's confidence. When Rex and Aubrey hear they're in a plastic surgeon's office, Rex thinks Cutter's accomplice was made to look like Gigi. Aubrey wonders if Cutter brought her back there to change her face back. Rex realizes he wasn't losing his mind, even if the woman he was seeing wasn't Gigi. He's glad Aubrey is there. In another room, 'Stacy' screams for Cutter to stop strangling Alex. Cutter thinks Alex deserves to die but lets her go for 'Stacy's' sake. Alex thanks 'Stacy', who says, "I did it for him." Alex doesn't understand Cutter's animosity and promises to make things up to him. Cutter doubts it. When they open the door to return to the waiting area, they see Rex and Aubrey. They close the door. Alex admits she knows and dislikes Rex. Cutter orders Alex to help him and 'Stacy' get out of there without Rex seeing them.
On a plane to Rio, Rex tells Aubrey how much he appreciates her going with him. Aubrey calls Rex her friend. Rex confides how he's been seeing Gigi and getting messages from her. Aubrey doesn't think he's crazy but is worried about him. They hope to find out, in Rio, how Cutter's accomplice could look like Gigi. Aubrey finds a deck of cards and attempts to distract Rex.
In Dr. Fascinella's office in Rio, 'Stacy' is stunned to hear Alex is Cutter's mother. Alex starts for the door. Cutter stops her and says, "You're not going anywhere." Alex wonders who he is. "I'm your son," Cutter replies. Alex doesn't think she could have a son as old as Cutter and calls him 'hot stuff'. Cutter brings up Aubrey and how Alex robbed their father. She denies it but reacts when Cutter talks about his father's suicide. She apologizes and says, "It's been a longtime." Cutter berates Alex for leaving them all. Alex knows she wasn't much of a mother and claims she's been through hell too. She thinks Cutter and Aubrey were better off without her. He wants to hear Alex's story and suggests they go somewhere private. They go into a private room. Cutter puts his hands around Alex's neck and starts strangling her. Rex and Aubrey arrive outside Dr. Fascinella's office, desperate to find out why Cutter would bring his accomplice there.
Rex arrives at the station, looks at his ticket to Rio then enters John's office. After he relays his conversation with Brody, John and Natalie wonder why security was after Rex. He brings up Gigi. After John steps out, Rex admits to Natalie that the woman he saw looked just like Gigi. He wants to stay and help with the search, but Natalie insists he deal with his past. Later, John and Natalie get a tip and head out. They return soon after, upset over the failed tip. John promises he'll find Liam. While looking at the computer, John thinks he knows where Brody took Liam.
Aubrey picks up Shane from the airport. He wonders where Rex is. Aubrey's forced to admit Rex is talking to John and Natalie. Liam's been kidnapped by Brody. Shane shares how Brody kidnapped him once too. Rex was shot in the crossfire. He thinks Brody's PTSD came back. Rex appears. He has to go out of town and privately tells Aubrey about Cutter and the Gigi lookalike. After Aubrey and Shane leave, Rex prepares to board the plane to Rio.
