Al looks crushed as he goes to take out his new car. After Max leaves, Asa and Gab agree that Max is going to pay dearly for what he has done to them.

Todd, dressed as a nun, eavesdrops on a conversation between Kelly and Blair. When he's asked to give them privacy, he apologizes in a squeaky voice without turning around. As Hank arrives to inform Blair on her latest status, he manages to run from the room where he runs into Sister Michael Marie who introduces herself and asks many questions (and tells Sister she can borrow her depilatory cream for her moustache)! Todd calls himself Sister Bernadette Peter and answers the questions (more or less) of the hard of hearing nun. Meanwhile, Hank announces that Blair's evaluation is finished and it's been decided that she's no longer a threat to anyone, including herself. She will be released tomorrow but informs a gleeful Blair that it's not unconditional-she must see a therapist regularly and will be sent back to St. Ann's if she's deemed mentally unstable again. Blair is ecstatic and wants to rush home to see Starr, thank Todd and inform him of his baby, though Kelly tries to discourage her of that. Blair's therapist arrives and it's Rae. Todd has hidden in Addie's room and while he's looking at familiar pictures, Blair's mother returns. Sister Mary advises Sister Michael not to tell anyone about the strange new nun, she will take care of it.

In The Woods

Ben has followed Gina's car but cannot locate her. Suddenly he's faced with two of her henchmen who fix their guns on Davidson. Ben attempts to bluff his way out of this and gets the men to disagree with each other. He manages to grab both of their guns and secures the men in the trunk of his car. As he makes his way to the women, James comes up behind him, holding a gun to his back. Nearby, Gina trains her gun on Jean and tells her that both she and Ben will have to die. When Jean reminds her of their previous deal, she's informed the deal is off since things didn't work out the way they were supposed to. Suddenly, Jean becomes Niki and babbles on, trying to dissuade Gina from killing her. She makes a proposition that they turn into "Thelma and Louise" and go off together and have some fun. As Gina attempts to force Niki to jump, a new alter Tori (the one who killed Victor Lord) appears and tries to wrestle the gun away. As she threatens to kill Gina, Ben (who has managed to struggle with James and get his gun) appears in time to see the two grapple.

Buchanan Mansion

Asa and Gabrielle discuss their plan to make Max pay while Al returns from driving his new car and listens in. As Gabrielle gets carried away and yells that she wants Max to suffer, Al marches in and questions the pair. Asa doesn't want to give his new son any answers but Al tells him that he and his mom have been close for a long time. Gabrielle asks to speak with Al alone where she denies that there's something else to their original plan of the marriage and adoption, and that she just wants to get Max out of the mansion. She only wants Al's happiness and she even went to prison to protect him, though she admits that for years her dreams and hopes were based on Max. He never once came to visit her in prison she cries as she becomes extremely agitated, but her son assures her that Max isn't worth it. He wants her vendetta against Max dropped though she insists there isn't one because they're happy now. Asa looks on from the other room and once Al leaves he asks his new wife if she has lost her nerve. Mrs. Buchanan assures him she hasn't but she just can't disclose all to her son; she knows he still has some feelings for Max. She'll meet with Ben Davidson next week.

Art Gallery

Sam makes an announcement to all present that he is Colin's killer so Bo can stop the investigation. Jen runs to her father while Cris has words with Lindsay who doesn't want to hear this new confession. Bo wants to hear what Jen has to say still and is quite skeptical of this new development. Sam insists he would have spoken up sooner if he was a better man but he was sure he would have gotten Lanie off as her lawyer anyway. Bo wants to know who Sam is protecting though Rappaport claims to have proof-the murder weapon.

Thursday, May 31, 2001

Woods-"Tori" is struggling with Gina for the gun and threatening to kill Gina the way she killed Viki's father. Gina hits her in the head with the gun , knocking her out just as Ben rushes up to help Viki. Gina, still delusional about Ben loving her, tells Ben they will be together as soon as she kills Viki. Ben, however, tells her she'll have to kill him first. Gina tries to get him to move, but when he won't , points the gun at him. Ben continues to try to talk Gina into giving up and going into witness protection, but Gina won't give up and threatens to kill all three of them. Then, as police sirens are heard, Gina asks Ben what's going on and gets a look of ultimate betrayal as she figures out that Ben called the cops on her. She then becomes even more distraught as Ben says he'll never love her and backs away from him, stumbling over a cliff. The police then arrive and say they're going to call an ambulance for Viki, as Ben does his best to wake Viki up. Viki then begins to open her eyes.

St. Anne's-Rae and Blair are both angry over Rae being assigned to treat Blair, and Rae walks out refusing to do it. Max stops Rae and pleads with her to treat Blair on behalf of his baby. Although Rae is still upset about Blair trying to frame Skye, she reluctantly agrees to try to help Blair, as meanwhile Kelly has convinced Blair to play along to be free faster. Max and Rae walk back in just as Blair is telling Kelly that she wants to tell Todd it's his baby. Max asks her what she was saying and Blair covers, saying she was just upset at him for not coming to see her sooner. After some obvious tension, Rae and Blair agree to meet the next day, and Rae leaves. Max then tells Blair he wants to make plans, and Blair gets rid of Kelly by asking her to go get something to eat. Kelly tells Blair not to say anything stupid while she is gone and leaves. Then, when Max asks what Kelly meant, Blair tells him to sit down so she can tell him something. We then see Todd eavesdropping.

Blair's room-Addie tells an in-disguise Todd that Blair has a secret about him. Todd presses Addie until she tells him that Todd really helped Blair, and that if he hadn't lied about not loving her, then she wouldn't have to lie about the baby. Todd gets visibly shaken by this, but just as he is pressing Addie for details, the nun from yesterday's encounter enters the room, and Todd bolts. He is running down the hall, and barely escapes the head nun. As she looks after him, Kelly walks up and asks if there's a problem, and the sister tells her that was no nun.

Sam's house-Nora shows up and Lanie tells her how she suspects Lindsay of using Jenn to cover her crimes. Nora says Sam must know because she might use him, too and leaves to find him. Later, Lindsay shows up and tells a confused Lanie she is going to make Lanie pay.

Lindsay's gallery-Sam tells a disbelieving Bo that the murder weapon is buried behind Colin's house, and Bo gets a team ready to dig there. Lindsay then asks Sam what Bo will find, and Sam tells Lindsay and Jenn not to ask questions and to stay strong. Bo and Sam then leave together. Cris then asks Jenn how he can help, and Lindsay yells at him to leave Jenn alone. Jenn then convinces Cris it would be best to leave, so he does. Jenn then leaves the room, and Nora shows up looking for Sam. Lindsay tells her about Sam's confession and Nora races off to find him after Lindsay tells her where they are. Jenn comes out and tells Lindsay to go help Sam, and Lindsay agrees only after making Jenn promise not to talk to or see anyone. After Lindsay leaves, Jenn tries to call Will, but gets no answer. Cris then comes to the door, but Jenn doesn't let him in. He apologizes for pressing, saying he had no idea that Jenn was covering for her father. Jenn then tells him to leave. He does, and Jenn cries.

Woods behind Colin's-Sam tells Bo they are looking for the same poker Lanie used on Colin. He tells Bo that Colin was disoriented from Lanie's hit when he got there, but he was still gloating. Sam says Colin came at him, and he hit him. He then carried the body off and buried it, finding Nora when he returned. At that moment, an officer finds the poker, and Bo tells Sam he has to take him in just as Nora arrives. Nora insists on coming along.
