Nina Meets Sasha While Ava Dreams of Revenge
Thursday October 11, 2018: Peter tries to get Maxie to loosen up, Laura worries about Kevin’s odd behavior, and Ryan has another session with Ava.
In the park, Ava watches Griffin and Kiki stop their jog to make out. She gets fed up listening to them talking about doing things he never did with Ava and storms off. Kiki and Griffin stroll around talking about movies and how they need to focus on each other. He got them passes to the film festival and hopes she can help him become a film buff. Elsewhere, Nina and Curtis wait to meet her daughter. She’s nervous so he encourages her to relax. They sit down at a picnic table and she worries about her daughter being delayed. He spots Sasha and leads her over to make the introductions. There’s some awkward small talk until Nina hands her flowers. Sasha asks to see the DNA test results and Curtis gives her both sets. She looks them over and accepts that Nina is her biological mother. They try to get to know each other and discuss horse riding. Curtis leaves them alone. Nina tells Sasha they should take things slow and asks her for a drink.
At Kelly’s, Laura is startled to walk in on Ryan eating a cronut. She’s surprised to see him there and asks why he left so early. He didn’t have the heart to wake her and complains about how stubborn his virus is. Laura feels like he’s been avoiding her so he’s reassuring. Outside, Maxie meets with Felicia. Peter comes out and thanks Maxie again for helping him in the elevator. After he walks away, Felicia demands to know what that was all about. Maxie explains they’ve called a truce and are working on their friendship. Sitting on a bench, Maxie explains that she’s done being bitter and Peter is James’ uncle. They go inside and Ryan happily uses them to interrupt Laura asking him more questions. Felicia announces that she’s going on a cruise. “No! You can’t do that,” he bursts out, arguing it’s unhealthy to run away from the anniversary. Maxie argues that letting Mac whisk her mom away is just what she needs. Ryan controls his seething rage as Maxie talks about how awful he is. He excuses himself to leave for work. Laura follows him to the door and asks him to finish their conversation later. Back outside, Ava meets Scott by the wall. She tells him she’s been having lethal thoughts. The lawyer encourages her to forgive Kiki. Ava rails about Griffin moving into Kiki’s building and them flaunting their relationship at her. Scott suggests that lashing out at them just pushes them together. She doesn’t like that suggestion. As she stomps to Kelly’s, she bumps into Ryan. He senses she’s upset and asks if she needs someone to talk to. They arrange an appointment and he leaves. Scott tells her that the shrink is a quack. Back inside, Laura tells Felicia how edgy ‘Kevin’ has been. She suspects this anniversary is rough for him. Laura just wants it over with so they can get some peace.
