    The Natalie Effect.

    Thursday, December 29 2011
    John and Natalie are stunned, Kim gets bad news, and a beloved couple decides to tie the knot...


    In John's office, Gigi taunts Jack about seeing a ghost. Gigi wants to finish what she started the night she planned to confront Jack and warns, "I'm going to kick your scrawny ass." Tea demands Gigi back off but is glad she's okay. Gigi wonders if Jack's glad. Shane says Jack's not worth it. Out in the station, John and Natalie discuss Jack. Natalie thinks Tea's going to have a hard time getting Jack out of this one and says, "Not unless she can raise the dead." Gigi appears and says, "It's me." Natalie and John hug Gigi, stunned she's alive. Natalie knows Rex must be beside himself. Gigi confirms but admits he's off tying up some loose ends. After John leaves, Gigi comments on how lighter John seems and wonders if he's on medication or if it's 'the Natalie effect'. Suddenly, Gigi blurts out that Liam is John's son. She remembers what was on the tape she had. Natalie already knows. Gigi's surprised Natalie and John aren't back together and warns that life's too short. Back in John's office, Tea and Jack hug. Gigi's alive, which means Jack's out of the woods. John appears and says, "I wouldn't go that far." Tea asks Jack to wait outside then warns that Jack can't be tried for Stacy's murder. The chain of events that happened after Jack locked Gigi in the basement was interrupted by Stacy. Tea demands John concentrate on charging Todd for Victor's murder. John plans to make Jack pay for locking Gigi up to begin with. Outside, Jack stops Gigi before she and Shane leave. He's glad she's alive and apologizes for everything he did to them. "Tell that to my sister," Gigi says and leaves with Shane. Natalie appears with a few choice words for Jack. Later, just as Natalie and John are prepared to talk, he's called away. They make plans to spend New Year's together.



    Todd brings Blair to the mansion. He thinks Neela was following orders from Rex and vows revenge. Blair suggests they help Tea build a case for their son. Todd wonders when Tea and Blair became so close. Blair reflects and urges Todd to cut Tea some slack. Later, alone, Todd thinks back to recent confrontations with Tea then whispers, "Tea knows I killed Victor." He recalls the time Tea's spending with John and thinks he knows too. Todd throws a glass dish. Blair rejoins him and listens as Todd claims his upset is due to Jack. He's beyond repair. Blair snaps, "Jack needs a father who believes in him!" Todd apologizes and wishes he could make Jack love him. "You stand behind Jack," Blair says. "And I'll stand behind you." Just as Todd says he wants Tea fired, Tea appears with Jack and questions his motives. Blair minimizes Todd's words. Tea shares that Gigi's alive. Todd notes, "He's not a murderer." Tea whispers, "It makes one of you."



    At the Buchanan Mansion, Rex tells Aubrey, "Gigi's alive." Aubrey thinks Rex is delusional until he explains. Over talk of Cutter, Aubrey admits he called from jail. She hung up on him. Aubrey knows she and Rex don't have a future now but hopes one day to find a guy like Rex. She urges Rex to go be with his family then cries after he goes.



    Viki joins Clint at Llanfair, who rants about Jack being a killer. Viki wonders if Clint expects her to give up on her nephew. Clint jokes about Viki dumping him after a day. She laughs and says, "You're stuck with me." They profess their love. Viki loves Jack too and knows he has to face the consequences of his actions. Gigi deserves justice. Shane appears with a surprise. Gigi follows slowly, not wanting to give Viki and Clint a heart attack. Viki rushes into Gigi's arms. Clint's stunned that he has Stacy's heart. Shane notes that Stacy hadn't been using it anyway. Rex arrives and starts to propose. Clint gives Rex his mother's ring. He gets down on one knee. Gigi accepts.



    Cutter calls Kim from a Kentucky jail and asks for a favor. Kim promises to help if he tells her where Stacy is. She's stunned to hear the girl she rescued was Gigi. Cutter explains, as Kim cries, "It can't be." Kim blames herself for not stopping Stacy from the beginning. She feels alone, but Cutter says she still has him. Kim lashes out for Cutter framing her. He apologizes, suggests they team up again, asks Kim to bust him out of jail and says, "I'm too pretty for prison." Cutter piques Kim's interest when he talks about the perfect mark, a woman with her own island - their mother. Cutter shares his run-in with Alex. Kim says goodbye and hangs up on him. Cutter calls Alex.

    I'm starting to remember why I couldn't stand Gigi. I wish she had stayed dead. She is finally back with her family and she is all up in Jack's face again. How soon we forget. Getting in Jack's face almost did her in. And how can she help put Jack away? Her precious boy pulled a gun on Jack. Did he pay for that? Did Gigi pay for kidnapping Todd's son? With the help of John might I add.

    Speaking of John, has he been hanging around Gnat too long. He is stupid as hell if he thinks he can charge Jack with anything. He should charge Gigi for the death of Stacy and the theft of his brain.

    The only people that have to pay for their crimes are Mannings.

    Nora better not pursue charges against Jack. If my memory serves me right, Matthew killed Eddie Ford and is still walking around free as a bird.

    Now we have Fata-lie up in Jack's face. Did she ever pay for stabbing Mitch? NO!! Or covering up evidence in the Todd Manning shooting. NO!

    Today's best lines:

    Cutter: I'm too pretty for prison.

    Roger, remembering his reaction to Rex: He was always a little shifty, kind of like he was having a seizure

    Could the writers and actors be indulging themselves in poking a little fun at each other as the show is winding down? LOL

    cowboys fan...100% TOTALLY AGREE WITH EVERYTHING YOU SAID AND THEN SOME!!!

    And I'm not a Jack fan but for Natalie to get up in his face with her stupid drivel made me be on Jack's side. Natalie thinks that she has the right to throw stones? Nasty, lying, cheating heifer!

    Cowboys fan, please tell me why you think Gigi should be charged for her sisters death? Gigi just protected herself from what Stacy was going to do to her. I am sure had she not passed out, and gone into a coma, she would have saved her sister. And wasn't it Marcie that kidnapped Todd's (Victor) son?

    Overall, I think the episode today was good, Still can't believe it is going to end.

    Gigi could have told the authorities that Stacy was down there. She is just as bad or maybe worse than Jack.

    Posted by TipsyTess at Thursday, December 29 2011 12:55 PM

    I say WTG John today...yeah Jack is no longer charged with murder but he does have other crimes against him. Nora let something stand up in court as he needs to be charged.

    Posted by TipsyTess at Thursday, December 29 2011 12:59 PM

    piqueroi..I agree those were great lines today. I'm to pretty for jail just cracked me up. So glad Kim hung up on him.
