    Chad Beats the Machine

    Thursday, January 04 2007
    Ivy looks for a way to stop the wedding. It looks like Grace won’t make it home. Chad proves his for Whitney with a lie-detector test. Gwen tries to talk to Ethan as he stalks through the mansion after Theresa.


    The guests arrive

    Noah and Pilar are chatting with Tabitha at the wedding. Pilar still thinks Kay should be marrying her son, but Endora is very happy that the wedding is going ahead. Julian appears to tell them that they’ll be sitting with him. He looks forward to spending time with his daughter. Tabitha thinks this is a big mistake. To Tabitha’s relief, Ivy interrupts the family get-together to urge Julian to stop the wedding. He threatens to kick her into the street. ‘It wouldn’t be the first time.’ Tabitha still wants to tell Kay that she’s marrying a deceitful man, but Endora continues to threaten her.


    Miguel is still banging on the pantry door and shouting that Fox is a liar. Fox tells him that the next time he sees Kay, she’ll be Mrs. Nicholas Foxworth Crane.

    Kay uses Sam’s phone to send Grace a picture of her in her wedding gown before Father Lonigan arrives to tell her the wedding is about to start. Kay starts dancing around giddily and Simone says that she’s marrying the right guy, ‘the honest guy.’ Grace talks to Sam. She tells him she has some ‘disturbing news’, but won’t go into details because she doesn’t know who is listening. The priest tells her that they’re being sent to another airport and will take off from there. She takes her bus ticket and the priest quips that she has her ticket to paradise. She hangs up and Sam worries about how worried Grace sounds. He turns and takes Kay’s hands to tell her how proud he is before escorting her out.


    The end for Grace?

    As Grace is about to get on the bus to the airport, she gets a call threatening her, but she refuses to stop; no matter who it hurts, she will tell the truth. She’s sure that Sam will know what to do. The priest is waiting only feet away and confident that he will be the one to stop her. As the bus is prepared to move along, Grace tells herself that everything will be out in the open soon. The priest puts his bag on and arms the bomb before walking off and returning to the station to watch it drive off. After saying a quick prayer, he detonates the bomb and the bus explodes. At the wedding, Sam has an uncomfortable feeling.



    Luis tries to reassure Fancy

    Fancy is telling Luis that she’s overreacting to everything. She even thought there was someone in the closet. He offers to check but she says that she already did. He tells her again that she’s absolutely safe, but she jumps whenever she sees a shadow. After telling her to get some rest, he leaves and she crawls back into bed. Once she closes her eyes, she flashes back to the attack again and wakes up. Telling herself that she’s safe, she tries to go back to sleep as the door to the closet begins to open. She finally decides that she’s spent enough time in bed and will quickly get dressed an go down to her brother’s wedding. Yet, when she gets out of bed, the lights go out. She jumps for the phone, but the peeping tom grabs her before she can make a sound.


    Sheridan, Chris and James arrive. She wonders if Fancy will make it to the wedding but Chris thinks that’s doubtful. Luis says hello before going to sit with his family. She doesn’t look well and Chris asks if she’s alright.


    Gwen thinks she's lost this time

    Ethan walks away from Gwen because ‘there’s something important to take care of.’ She feels crushed and, lucky for her, Rebecca is close by telling her to take deep breaths. Gwen is sure that she has lost him for good and explains how she threw her ring at him. Her mother tells her she’s been stupid: ‘Don’t get angry, get even.’ Instilling all the rage she can in her daughter, Gwen gets some backbone starts moving.


    Ethan wanders around the mansion looking for Theresa. Rebecca and Gwen catch up with him and he tells them that he’s busy. Gwen tries to apologize at Rebecca’s prompting. Jessica tells them to sit down because the wedding is about to start. Ethan gets a call as the ceremony begins. ‘I always knew he was no good,’ he exclaims before getting up and leaving a distraught Gwen and Rebecca trailing behind.

    Chad and Jared are setting up a way for him to prove his love to Whitney. They’re both their for a wedding again, which feels weird considering Chad just had one. Jared hopes that Chad can make Whitney happy; it’s the only way that Theresa will make up her mind and decide to marry him.


    Chad takes the test

    Theresa paces her bedroom wondering if things might really be ending between Gwen and Ethan. Whitney wakes up from a bad dream with a headache. She still wishes that she could believe Chad. Theresa’s not sure that she wants to leave Whitney alone while she’s at the wedding. Chad starts knocking at the door and Theresa answers it. She tells him to go call his mistress, but Jared says that they should let them talk it through. Chad explains that he was just scheduling a business meeting and can prove it. Jared shows in a man to administer a lie-detector test. Whitney asks him not to do this but he insists. After explaining how the test works, the questions begin. Whitney eagerly watches and the test proves that he’s telling the truth; there is no other woman in his heart. He asks her to come back to him; there’s no way he could beat the machine. Whitney has a question of her own though: Can you ever forgive me for doubting you? They kiss. Now she promises to give him the benefit of a doubt. They gleefully run off to start their honeymoon.


    Leaving the newlyweds alone, Jared tells Theresa the ring looks beautiful. She won’t think about this until things are resolved (not with Whitney, with Gwen, she thinks to herself). After they see that Whitney and Chad have reunited and run off together, Jared continues to pressure her and realizes that the problem is really Ethan. He proposes again, but before she can answer, Ethan walks in.

    Pilar prays to God that the wedding won’t take place. Ivy rushes around the house praying for divine intervention, or at least a good idea to stop the wedding. She wishes for Knight in shining armor to stop her son from ‘marrying that witch.’ She doesn’t have her car keys, so she decides to look for the fire alarm. In the kitchen, she hears Miguel yelling that he’s the only one that can stop the wedding. She frees him and he runs out.


    Miguel stops things just in time

    Fox and Noah are at the back of the room. He says that Miguel has vanished and asks Julian to be his best man. Julian ‘would be honored’ and the three of them walk to the front. Sam brings Kay in while Julian congratulates Fox on finally becoming a real Crane. When she arrives at the altar, the couple exchange I love you’s but she’s disturbed to see Miguel’s face when she looks at Fox. She asks where Miguel is and Fox says that he couldn’t stand to watch them marry. Father Lonigan begins the service and, just as it’s about to end, Miguel runs in and yells for them to stop. Endora’s furious and her mother tries to pull her out of the room before she makes trouble. Miguel tells Kay that she can’t marry Fox because he’s been lying to her. Pilar and Ivy both look relieved.


    Next on Passions: Ethan tells Theresa that Jared is a cold blooded killer. Fancy tries to escape again. Sheridan is determined to get Luis back.

    When will the madness stop? Ethan needs to leave Theresa alone or start believing that she isn't the one who sold him out, his wife is. I read somewhere that Ethan tells everyone that he and Theresa made love recently. Let me guess that once he does Gwen will still want to be with him. I think that Theresa should be able to move on; I mean come on now why is she the only one that has to hurt?

    I think Gwen should walk away from Ethan. He has proved over and over again that he is in love with Theresa and that she is the one in his heart. How much more proof does she need? He went looking for Theresa when Gwen threw her wedding ring at him and then he chased after her when she walked away. She needs to stop and think; Theresa told Ethan to talk to his wife and walked away. Who chased after her? Theresa isn’t the one fighting for them to be together anymore it is ETHAN. Come on Gwen can you really be this dumb?

    I really hope Miguel stops the wedding in time. I want him and Kay to be together. Hopefully he and Kay will be the ones getting married next week. Either that or I want Theresa and Ethan to get married; they need to be a family seeing how they have Little Ethan and Jane. Does anyone else agree?

    Oh yeah, did you know you can watch the Passions on NBC.com? Here is the website so that you can watch yesterday’s episode: www.nbc.com/passions

    Can we please discontinue the torture of Fancy... this is so sadistic ... It is one thing to be raped.. most people are hounded by the trauma of this act for years and sometimes always.. at this time you have fancy who can not close her eyes because she continues to see the attack .. and now you are going to have her violated again.. this has to be a man writing this that has some Freudian complex going on... How Sad !!

    I wish Ethan and Theresa would get back togather and stop playing games with each other. I wish Kay and Miguel would go ahead and get married and be a cute little family. I wish Sheridan would leave Fancy and Luis alone so they could have a relationship without her interferring. I think the rapist is Spike and he needs to be caught for all the things he has done. I love the show but sometimes get mad cause things get are dragged out so long.

    I am so sick of Ethan trying to get Theresa. Leave her alone. As for Chad I can't believe that he passed. He's a cheating egotistical jerk. I used to like Fox but now he's becoming just like his father and his grandfather Alistar.

    Posted by lacollins26 at Thursday, January 04 2007 10:46 AM

    Of course he passed, they aren't asking the right questions. I've always believed him when he said that Whitney was the only woman for him, but he's not cheating with a woman.

    How come the people we want to see tortured never are for very long, we've seen so many weddings happen that shouldn't have(Ethan and Gwen, Sheridan and Chris, Sam and Ivy almost) now they have a chance to finally give Kay what she's had coming for so many years but instead thats one secret they decided to let out of the bag. Miguel still should be in jail right now, what he did is considered a felony in most states. So maybe it's a good thing after all because when Charity comes back he'll leave her heartbroken AGAIN so they can go on to destroy evil. So i guess where ever Charity is she is still a virgin or is it only Miguel that will bring her into her full powers. Either way Kay deserves to suffer a little bit. Doesn't anyone remember the things she's done and how her child came to be in the first place..A big lie.

    I bet Chad is sleeping with a guy...

    Posted by artistah at Thursday, January 04 2007 12:27 PM

    Chad is totally having an affair with a guy. I love it. I'm glad Miguel interupted the wedding. Finally, the stories are getting better. But please leave Fancy alone. Let her be with Luis and make Sheridan crazy.
