    Making The Mannings Pay.

    Friday, August 26 2011
    Shane wants Brody's help, Tea and Blair compare notes, and Rex is more determined than ever...


    Brody arrives at the Buchanan Mansion. Shane asks for his help in making the Mannings pay for what happened to Gigi. Brody admits he thinks Jack was involved. Shane suggests Brody set up a sting to prove it. Shane talks about how guilty Jack's been appearing. Shane hates Jack and the man he calls his father and wishes they were dead. Brody thinks back to threatening Victor. He knows how it feels to want to make someone pay but Gigi wouldn't want Shane seeking revenge. Brody promises he'll get justice for Gigi.



    Natalie joins Rex at Gigi's gravesite. She sees the date of death scratched off Gigi's headstone. Though Natalie assumes some kids did it, Rex thinks Gigi's trying to send him a message that she's still alive. Natalie reminds Rex that their father has Gigi's heart. He knows it's crazy but plans to find her. Rex will let Natalie check him into St. Ann's if he's wrong. Natalie admits Jared appeared to her after his death. Though he disappeared, Natalie knows anything's possible. She vows to stand by Rex. After Natalie leaves, Rex puts his hand on the headstone and begs Gigi to keep sending him signs.



    Rex runs into Bo's office and asks him to exhume Gigi's body. He needs to know if it's really her in the grave. Rex explains all of the signs and why he thinks Gigi's still alive. Bo wonders how this will make Shane feel. Rex plans to do this with or without Bo.



    Later, Kim appears at Gigi's gravesite and places her hand on the scratched off area. The caretaker startles Kim. He thought she was a vandal and admits he's never seen someone scratch off a death date on a headstone. Kim's stunned to hear Rex is on his way. He just ordered an exhumation. The caretaker clears the flowers from the headstone and is surprised to find Kim suddenly gone. Bo and Rex appear with a crew. Bo gives the okay for them to start digging, as Kim nervously watches from the shadows. The coffin is lifted from the grave and opened. Rex looks at Gigi and can't make sense of any of this. Kim looks on confused. Shane appears and demands to know how Rex could disturb his mom's grave. Rex promises to explain and ushers Shane away. Once Gigi's reburied, Kim places flowers at her grave.



    Todd barges into The Sun and orders Victor out of his office. The secretary appears and offers to call security. Victor refuses and dismisses her. Todd fires her! Todd gives Victor one more warning and places his hand on the gun. Todd's life or not, Victor won't give up his legacy. It's as much Victor's as it is Todd's. Todd holds up the nameplate that reads Todd Manning. Victor doesn't care about the name. He owns everything and asks his brother for ID to prove he's Todd. Todd gives Victor one more chance to leave.



    Tea arrives at the mansion and discusses Todd and Victor with Blair. "Did you walk out on Victor?" Blair asks. "No," Tea replies. "I slept with him." Blair thinks it was pity sex, but Tea clarifies. She loves him. Blair brings up how Todd wanted to kill Victor and how she offered him a gun. As they argue, Blair reminds Tea that Todd has just as much right to everything that Victor has. Blair explains how she tried to use reverse psychology on Todd and assures Tea she put the gun back. Tea demands Blair open the safe and show her. As Blair opens the safe, Tea gets a call about the goings on at The Sun. Blair runs after Tea, leaving the door to the safe open.



    Back at The Sun, Todd starts counting, as Victor talks about the kids accepting him. "If you want to get rid of me you're going to have to kill me," Victor says. Todd pulls out a gun then quickly hides it when Bo, Tea and Blair appear. Bo warns Todd until he proves he's Todd Manning in court, he needs to clear out. Later, Victor warns Tea he won't give up his life.



    Blair brings Todd to Llanfair and warns him to stay away from Victor. She promises to get him a good lawyer. After Blair leaves, Todd takes out the gun and says, "I don't think I'll be needing a lawyer."



    James answers his door to Starr, who's upset over Dorian's departure. She thinks back to how Dorian's always been there for her then vents about not realizing Victor wasn't her father. Starr remembers being the first person to believe Victor was her father with a new face. She hopes they can all move on but doesn't know if her Uncle Victor will ever be able to.

    Kim's return causes Jessica and Natalie to rehash their resentment for each other.

    WELL I HOPE IT DOESN'T,BESIDES I DON'T BELIEVE GIGI IS DEAD

    I wonder why Todd won't cut Victor some slack since they are TWINS. I also wonder why neither has gone to visit Irene to get some additional answers to her "statement" that there was more...

    I feel so silly, my belly was in knots when they opened gigi's casket. I guess I am as loony as Rex because I was surprised to see her there. I feel stupid because Clint has her heart so Gigi isn't coming back.
    Ohh, don't you need a court order to exhume bodies? Saying I saw Gigi's ghost isn't really sufficient evidence either.

    Where is Echo? How the heck did she just let Dorian go like that?

    How did Kim find Gigi's grave so fast? I don't think Stacy is Gigi because Kim is STacy's friend, not Gigi's. Kim went to talk to her friend Stacy. Kim and Gigi wouldn't be chatting it up "Guess who came by the Spotted pony".
    But hey, anything is possible here.

    Oh yeah, Todd should cut VICTOR some slack! How about the other way around? Victor wasn't the one who spent eight years being tortured. Victor was the one in the pretty family photos playing daddy to kids that weren't his. Victor is the one who wants to KEEP everything that he has absolutely NO right to. If it weren't for the little matter of going to prison for murder, I'd say go to it Todd, pull the trigger and get rid of the jerk. But I think he proved already that when it comes right down to it, he will never kill his brother. And that's ALL he owes him.

    @jorie - i don't understand anything you're saying. did you mean to say that half of everything todd has is victors because he's victor lord's son? that's not the case, i'm pretty sure Victor left the 30 million dollars to Todd, that's why Irene went through all the trouble of switching them. I laughed myself silly at your comment about rh/todd being self-involved. seriously? they share the same personality, he's just as self-involved as tsj/victor, i don't even feel the need to give examples, i'm sure if your honest you can come up with them on your own.

    it seems to me that you don't really watch the show, you just follow the actors and you jump on board with the ones you like and advocate solely in their favor and rail against anyone who's not them. Comment's like that don't do anything for the discussion, they just incite other likeminded individuals to add to the fire.

    YES, Todd should cut victor some slack.
    Victor didn't kidnap him or drug him or torture him. Victor spent the last 8 years thinking all this was his, the family, the women, the money, house etc. It's kind of hard to just give it up in a few days.
    Plus, all the changes, investments etc that he has done to grow what he thought was his. Yea, Todd should cut him some slack

    The person Todd needs to use the gun on is his miserable mother, father and adoptive fathers.

    Irene didn't tell Victor Lord Sr about Victor Jr. Besides, with all that rogue operation stuff, I bet Irene has millions stashed somewhere. She seems like the kind that would use her govermental position and power to fleece some organization of it's funds. Mother of the year she will never be!

    IRENE SAID SHE DID WHAT SHE DID B/C SHE COULDN'T COME FORWARD TO GETVIC WHAT BELONGED TO HIM. .VIKI SAID HALF WAS VICTORS,TEA KNOWS HALF IS VICTORS TOO. TODD IS JUST THE SAME OLD SELF CENTERED TOSH HES ALWAYS BEEN ,CAN NOT SEE VICTOR IS A VICTIM TOO. AND AT LEAST VICTOR DIDN'T THREATEN TO KILL HIM.AND WAS TRYING TO SEND JOHN A PHOTO OF THE DNA B4 THE BUFFOON INTERRUPED HIM.B/C HE DOESN'T THINK A CHILD SHOULD GO THROUGH WHAT HE HAS ,EVEN THOUGH IT WAS OK WITH JOHN WHEN MARCIE HAD SAM.

    @blesseddiva - agreed, he should cut him some slack, it would be hard to give that all up, but it cuts both ways, shouldn't Victor realize that what he's afraid to lose his brother lost for 8 years and that has to be just as hard if not more so.
