Scarr Leaves Starr Holding The Bag.Wednesday, October 19 2011
Blair confronts Jack, Tina wants to prove her remorse, and Ford wonders what Brody knows...
Blair finds Jack at The Sun. His new headline reads: "Scarr Leaves Starr Holding The Bag." Blair refuses to let Jack slander Starr. Victor wouldn't want it either. She explains that Bo isn't charging Shane and promised to go easy on Jack if he told the truth. Blair warns Jack could go to jail if he doesn't come clean now. Maybe Todd didn't hit Jack over the head, but he thinks Todd killed Victor. Jack wonders how Blair knows for sure that Todd's innocent. Blair's not the only one who believes in Todd and accuses Jack of acting just like Scarface. Blair hugs Jack against his will and promises never to stop loving him. "How do I get out of this, Mom?" Jack asks. "Tell the truth," Blair replies.
In Bo's office, Nora thinks she can tell if Todd's lying and asks if he killed Victor. "I'm innocent," Todd says, thinking back to shooting Victor. "I didn't kill my brother." Nora admits she started feeling sorry for 'Todd Manning' over the last eight years. But the man standing before her is the same man who terrorized her in the beach house. Nora drops the murder charge but holds Todd for escaping police custody. Blair and Jack appear. Todd and Jack lock gazes. Jack admits he doesn't remember Todd hitting him. Todd thanks Jack, who vows to make Todd pay for killing his father. Jack makes a formal statement and denies seeing Todd at the Manning Estate.
Dani sits with Starr, playing 'Go Fish' through the jail cell. She thinks Tea found their father. Starr hopes Tea's getting Todd to turn himself in. Dani worries how long they'll keep Starr in jail. Starr plans to be out for Dani's birthday. Talk turns to Nate and his birthday gesture. Starr's surprised Dani's trying to forgive Nate. Dani only wants to be Nate's friend again, nothing more. A guard orders Dani out. Dani hugs Starr goodbye and slips her the deck of cards. Later, Todd's brought to his cell. Starr's happy to hear the murder charge has been dropped. At least he won't go down for a murder he didn't commit. Todd turns his back on Starr and replies, "No, I won't, Shorty."
Tea sees Dani enter the station. They discuss Todd. Dani can tell Tea's upset and promises everything is going to be all right.
Natalie interrupts Cord and Tina's kiss at Llanfair looking for Viki. She's not home. Natalie's happy to see Cord but looks down her nose at Tina. She tries apologizing for staying quiet when Natalie and Jared were locked in the basement. Natalie doesn't want to hear Tina's excuses. Tina wants to make things up to her and offers to help Natalie plan her wedding. Natalie politely declines, but Tina pushes. Talk turns to Jessica. Tina wonders why she won't be in the wedding and is surprised when Natalie admits she's marrying Jessica's ex-fiancé. Cord tries to get Tina to butt out, but Tina suggests, "I'll be your Maid of Honor." Tina promises to take care of everything and convinces Natalie to let her stand up for her. After Natalie leaves, Cord admits Tina's heart is in the right place. Tina leans in for a kiss, but Cord calls it a night. They agree to continue their conversation, prior to Natalie's arrival, at another time.
At Capricorn, Jessica tells Ford she doesn't know if she's going to tell John the truth. Brody loves Liam so much. Brody appears. Jessica wonders what's bothering him. Brody admits he and John got into it, tells them to enjoy their evening then walks away. Jessica brings up how 'in the dark' Brody is about Liam's paternity. "Are you sure about that?" Ford asks and nods toward Brody and Vimal, who tampered with Ryder's test. Jessica refuses to believe Brody would hurt Natalie and John by keeping such a secret. Jessica plans to sit on her knowledge of Liam's paternity for now. Nearby, Brody berates Vimal for running his mouth to Shaun. Vimal doesn't think Todd should go down for a murder he didn't commit. Brody was cleared of Victor's murder but warns Vimal he's taken lives before. "Is that a threat?" Vimal asks. It's a fact. As Vimal leaves, Brody calls out, "Say hi to your pretty wife for me." Later, as Brody looks at Liam's photo, vowing to do anything to keep his family, Natalie appears. She found a Maid of Honor. After they catch up, Natalie and Brody agree to meet at home.
Ford drops Jessica off at Llanfair. They joke around then agree they're both good people. Jessica heads inside alone, sits on the stairs and looks at Liam's paternity results.
Vimal goes to The Sun and looks at the 'Who's Your Daddy' headline.
