    Ethan Hasn’t Been the Best Husband Lately

    Tuesday, January 23 2007
    Miguel speaks too soon, Fox flatlines, Fancy’s attacker is unmasked, Gwen leaves Ethan, Jared wants Ethan charged for sexual assault.

    Welcome back Charity

    Miguel is welcoming Charity home with a hug. Simone interrupts their warm get-together to ask again if they had sex in the shed at Thanksgiving. Charity repeats that Miguel called her to say that he only loves Kay, that’s why she can’t understand how she married Fox. Miguel dismisses this; the marriage is over, he ‘took care of Fox for good.’ He explains his theories about Fox to Charity. Sam walks in, happy to see Charity and tells Kay that the mansion called about Fox. She doesn’t know where he is. Miguel says that he knows, he was fighting with him and left him ‘to crawl away and die...I hope I killed him.’ Sam asks where his car is and then tells him that Fox was run over and it sounds like Miguel just confessed. Miguel tries to defend himself, but Sam wants to take a look at the car. They all go out to the street and look at it. The headlight and fender are smashed.

    Fox doesn't look well

    After being run down, Fox lays on the side of the street covered in blood. An ambulance arrives and the medics are surprised that he’s still alive. They take him to the hospital and tell Eve that he must have been the victim of a hit-and-run. Fox starts to flatline.

    Everyone wants to help

    Chad begins searching Fancy’s room for the attacker but finds nothing. She encourages him to go further into the closet when Sheridan and Chris run in to ask what happened. Sheridan asks Whitney if Fancy was dreaming again. Whitney nods and Fancy starts yelling at her aunt. There is no proof, yet again, that anyone was there. Chad and Whitney saw no signs either; Fancy must be in shock. Fancy is sure that aunt Sheridan is playing tricks and trying to come between her and Luis. Whitney finally notices that Fancy has a huge bruise on her cheek. Fancy finally has some proof. She jumps up and thinks that she hears something in the closet. She goes in to search with a candlestick in her hand. Chad and Whitney think she’s crazy. Fancy comes out and Whitney wants her to go to the hospital. She refuses and Sheridan suggests that she may have hit herself in her sleep. Looking around, she realizes that Luis isn’t there. She believes that he must have run after the attacker. Chad calls security to check, but Luis hasn’t been seen and no one’s being chased. Fancy doesn’t care; security on the estate is a joke anyway. Meanwhile, the rapist is still in the closet with a knife drawn.

    Everyone is shocked to see...

    Fancy begins searching the halls for Luis. Everyone follows her and tries to convince her to go back to her room. Chad call security again and they say that motion detectors have picked up movement in the kitchen. They all rush down and begin to search. They find nothing and are about to take Fancy back to bed when there is a bump from the pantry. Sheridan tries to say there was no noise, but everyone heard it. Chad and Chris open the pantry door and discover someone dressed all in black laying on the floor. Fancy begs them to take off the mask. As they pull it off, a look of dread fills the faces of everyone present. ‘O my god! It can’t be!’

    Jared wants Ethan charged

    Ethan is defending himself against Jared’s accusations that he’s taken advantage of Theresa. Jared punches Ethan again before Theresa stops him and claims that Ethan didn’t do anything that she didn’t want. She asks for Gwen’s help, but all Gwen can say is ‘help you? It’s all I can do to stop myself from helping Jared neuter my dog of a husband!’ She thinks he just snuck over to get what he’s been dreaming about. Jared punches Ethan again and Theresa repeats her excuses. Gwen says Jared should learn from her stupidity. This has been going on for years; it’s time to give them what they want. Ethan tries to stop her, but Gwen is drowning in his lies and is sick of him. She leaves and he follows her. Jared wants him charged for assault, but Theresa refuses. He’s disgusted that she can’t even tell the difference between he and Ethan. Jared takes out his phone to call 911 so they can have Ethan charged with sexual assault. She refuses and he asks her if she wants her daughter raised by a sexual predator. He places the phone in her hands, but she can’t do it. He accuses her of lying to him; she must have known that she was making love to Ethan. Shrugging, she admits that she knew... deep down. He tells her that, if she still loves Ethan, they’re finished. When she tries to convince him that she loves him, Jared demands she press charges. She refuses: The engagement is off. He walks out, she pushed him too far.

    Ethan chases Gwen down, but she’s tired of talking to him. If she waited her whole life for him to love her, she’d still be out of luck. Their marriage may have been a mistake. He needs to admit it, but he won’t. ‘You don’t need to live a lie anymore. I’m setting you free,’ she declares. She’s loved him her whole life, but can’t do this. ‘I haven’t been the best husband lately but...’ ‘Lately?’ He’s always put Theresa first and she’s ending this now. He asks her to move away with him. She’s been pathetic enough to put up with him this long, but, she can’t make him love her and she deserves a man who will. She lost Ethan a long time ago and, even if he could get over Theresa, she wouldn’t want him back; he’s hurt her too many times. She walks away and Ethan can hardly believe it. He runs after her, but she tells him to leave her alone and shuts the door.

    Miguel protests his innocence despite the evidence.

    I think the ethan and Theresa should be together with their kids. They are meant to be and alway have been. Now they have their chance. I bet the person in the closet is Luis,Duh. But everyone knows that it is spike!!I belive that Grace is still alive. But I hope Miguel doesn't go to jail. He didn't do it, I think!!! I hope charity can help Miguel get kay back.

    OMG Ethan and Gwen BETTER not get back together or i will freak, with the show getting canceled i think they are starting to wrap up things, the only good thing coming from the show end is we will get some answers. HOPEFULLY

    This is passions knowing them they will end the show with ends still not wrapped up

    I think that Ethan and Thresa finally belong together.
    Sheridan should just give up Luis has moved on with Fancy and I also think that Kay should marry Miguel
    Charity should leave town

    I hope Miguel fries if he really did it. He went through all that for a conniving woman who has been scamming him for years, and he has to be with Charity anyway, unless they decided that Tabitha and Endora will be on the show until the end. Ethan just needs to be real with Gwen and everyone else let her know exactly how he feels. I still think Theresa needs to hold him on a short leash like he has with her all these years. This rapist story is getting old. I think we figured out it isn't Spike, and that maybe Sheridan is posing to scare her. I think it's Luis that fell out of the closet

    I too believe that it is Luis that fell out of the closet

    I am so glad that finally it seems to be over between Ethan and Gwen. She does deserve better even if she did do a little scheming. I can't stand a Man that can't make up his mind. He want both Theresa and Gwen. Theresa needs to kick him to the curb as well and just have Ethan find someone else.

    I don't think spike is the rapists because he was with jessica at the bar. Noeh was there was at the bar fighting as jess too. When Fansy was being rape.I think the rapist dressed Luis as the rapist.Before putting him in the closet. I think Sheirdon knows who the rapist is. Even paying him to do it to Fansy.I hope they change there mind about cancelling the show.
