    So You Think You Could Be Shane Morasco's Father?

    Wednesday, October 01 2008
    Rex is lost in his own mind, family and friends pray for Rex, and Tess wants Natalie to suffer...


    At the hospital, after Gigi tells Shane that Brody is not his father, she finishes, "Your honest to God father is Rex," to which Shane screams, "You're lying!" Gigi explains everything from the time she got pregnant to how she came to tell him that Brody was his father. Shane brings up the DNA test, saying, "DNA tests don't lie!" Gigi talks about the fake DNA then stresses how much Rex needs him right now! Gigi apologizes for everything, and swears she's not trying to take his love for Brody away, but that Rex threw himself in front of Shane so he wouldn't be shot! Although Shane is furious with Gigi, she talks about regret and warns Shane of how he may feel if something happens to Rex. Gigi begs Shane to go see Rex once he gets out of surgery…



    In the operating room, Rex walks around saying, "Man, this guy's in bad shape," and is shocked to see himself lying on the table! As Rex pleads for Michael to 'see' him, he faintly hears Gigi asking him to fight then says, "Boy, am I in trouble…"



    Suddenly, Rex finds himself on the stage of a game show titled "So You Think You Could Be Shane Morasco's Father" - with Colin MacIver as the host! After Rex answers the question, "Yes, I want to be Shane's father," he's introduced to the current game show champion - Brody Lovett! Next, Colin shows everyone what the winner will take home - Shane - then directs Rex's attention to a hospital monitor, sounding a faint heartbeat, to prove what he'll lose, as well as losing Shane to Brody!



    As the game begins, the audience screams for Rex to prove that he's Shane's father. Seated for questions in "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire" style, Rex answers his first question about Shane's comic book correctly. However, when Rex is asked who he was in love with when he married Adriana, he can't pick one answer. Next question is about hiding Sam's paternity, bringing a big 'Boo' from the audience. Colin announces, "You're dying here, Rex," then brings in some special guests - Jen and Lindsay Rappaport, who both ask a question about Rex's dirtiest deed, which surrounds how he slept with both mother and daughter! "Can I get a help-line here?" Rex asks. Colin brings up the next issue - why Rex left his pregnant girlfriend Gigi - and Rex answers correctly, because he wanted to scam 'Jessica The Heiress'! Though he's truthful, Rex is reminded how wrong he was - definitely not father-material!



    Finally, Colin announces that the next question is very important and if he doesn't get it right he'll never be Shane's - or anyone else's father - because he'll be dead! Rex is shown eight male faces from Llanview then asked, "Can you tell me which one of these eight men is your biological father?" Rex has no idea then asks for a 'phone home' to Roxy. Once Colin gets Roxy on the phone, Rex asks her which man is his father, Roxy replies, "Your dad is -" But the phone line goes dead, and Rex is forced to figure it out for himself! "It was Bo, final answer, Bo Buchanan is my father!" Colin announces that Rex is dead wrong, and that he can't be Shane's father. "Sorry Rex," Colin says. "You've flat-lined."



    Outside of the operating room, Roxy and Jared arrive, leaving Bo to explain how serious Rex's condition is. Causing Roxy to faint! Across the room, Layla calls Adriana but can't get through to her. Marcie appears next and joins Jared, Layla and Roxy. Later, Charlie shows up, and Jared talks about Natalie being missing - and how something is 'not right' with Jessica!



    Inside the operating room, Rex's vitals go up and down… Michael briefly leaves to tell the family that Rex is hanging in there - but that he has a good fight ahead of him. After a few threats from Roxy, Michael promises to do everything he can then heads back into the operating room. When Michael arrives back inside, Rex's vitals drop, and Michael screams for Rex to keep fighting! It appears the results from the game going on inside of Rex's mind, and the answers he's giving Colin, are being detected by the monitors!



    Standing next to Charlie, Bo wonders how he could have lied about being Rex's father then says, "Because it made him very happy you being in that role." Charlie thanks Bo for always being there for Rex, but Bo just wishes he could do something to help Rex now. Just then, Roxy calls everyone in a circle and asks them to join her in prayer. Suddenly, Gigi and Shane appear, and Bo pulls them into the circle too. Little do they all know, inside the operating room, Rex has now flat-lined.



    When Tess appears in the secret room at Llanfair, she acts as though she's going to let Natalie leave to see Rex but then laughs a big 'no'! Even though Natalie promises to give up Jared in exchange for seeing her brother, Tess is still bent on making her suffer while she loses someone she loves! As Tess goes to leave, Natalie screams that she never wanted Nash to die - but says that it doesn't faze Tess to hurt others. Natalie then reminds Tess that when everyone finds out the truth she'll be locked away - unable to raise Bree and her unborn child! Suddenly, Tess flips, crying, screaming, and banging on the divider! Though Tess says at least she was able to say goodbye to Nash, she'll never be able to do the same to Rex! Tess turns off the television in Natalie's room then leaves her to worry about Rex's condition until morning.

    That game show s/l was the lamest of lame, that was so LAME, sorry, I would not want Shane for a son, he is a brat!!! Does any one know who Rex's dad is? I sure would like to know, as I stopped watching back in "93" when my mother passed on. Just started back up about a year ago. Yeah, I just thought that todays episode was kinda boring, But I really hope Rex dont die, I dont think he will because Adriana is supposed to be back to cause trouble.

    I don't think that Rex is going to die.It would't make sense to me if they killed Rex off the show right now after months of dragging this storyline about him being Shane's father and with Adriana coming back soon,just does't seem to be the right time for that JMO though.

    They have not told us who Rex's father is yet but I hope it comes out soon.(Roxy has claimed that she doesn't even know who it might be!)

    Hey All ~~~ Happy Hump Day!

    I liked today's epi'. Roxy reacted just as I thought she would! I was glad Charlie came to the hospital w/ her. I was glad Gigi finally told Shane the truth about Rex and Brody. I didn't think he'd believe her. It'll take some time for it to sink in. Rex's 'out of body' experience on the operating table was a nice touch. For a fraction of a second I thought Nat' had gotten through to Tessica! I hope how soon Vicki comes home and puts an end to Tess' scheme! Until tomorrow, have a great day! Love Ya's, Susie

    I have not seen the show yet, but, the game show sounds very interesting and fun to me......

    I liked Shane in the beginning. But he has turned into a major brat.

    I didn't think the story could be any more boring with Tess but it seems to get worse by the day. What's with so many people not knowing who their fater is and so many kids showing up that were long lost sons and daughters. It seems to me that the writers do not have an original thought in their heads. They keep playing on the writers of old. Please get rid of Tess. This has to be the worst story line have thought up.

    I may be wrong, but I thought Roxy had hidden the proof of who Rex's real dad was in Morris! Personally....I think it's Mitch Laurence! JMO!

    If TPTB are telling us the choices are among 1) Bo, 2) Charlie, RJ, 4) David V, 5, Mitch Laurence, 6) Snoop Dog, 7 Cain Rogan, or Jackie McKnaughton.....then by process of elimination, they told us today it's not Bo or David V. and Charlie was previously ruled out. Rex does not 'look' bi-racial, so that would rule out RJ & Snoop Dog. That leaves Rex's father as either Mitch Laurence, Cain Rogan, or Jackie McKnaughton. Mitch or Cain seem the most likely.

    I don't think Rex is going to die. He's on the banner page these days and his storyline is too tightly integrated. If Mitch Laurence is his father, then he's at least a half brother to Jessica. In the picture of Cain Rogan they used, Cain's round face & eyes are similar to Rex's. Also Roxy & Tina had a conversation last week about sleeping with the same men...at that time I think thay were referring to Max Holden. Interesting.
