Troy has given Lindsay the truth serum hoping she will confess to having previously given Nora the drug that erased part of her memory. The drug started working and Lindsay began telling Troy things of the past such as how she tried to smother him when he first came to town. Troy slowly brought Lindsay around to the question about if it was her or Colin that gave Nora the memory-erasing drug. Troy continues to probe Lindsay about what she did.

They are interrupted when Lindsay's cell phone rings; it is Jen who is looking for her Dad; not getting the details of what has happened, Lindsay panics and rushes out of Troy's house to go to the hospital. Troy is furious he failed to get the truth out of her.

He gets an idea (play like he is Colin and scare the truth of out Lindsay?)

Blair's House

Blair and Todd are cooing over baby Jack and Starr is very irritated (she had been having jealousy attacks because they do not seem to have time for her anymore). Blair explains to Starr that the baby is not like a toy she gets tired of that he will be with them always. Starr replies: "maybe, maybe not". Todd's cell phone rings and it is the Mexican policeman telling Todd that Paloma escaped from Mexico. In the meantime, Paloma is on the plane about to land in Llanview. She goes to Break Bar for directions to Blair's; Antonio interprets for her and gives her the directions for the taxi. Paloma leaves to go to see Blair and tell her that her baby is alive (not knowing they have the baby).

Blair is trying to get the baby to sleep and Starr says he must be stupid if she has to teach him how to sleep. Todd continues the conversation with the Mexican policeman and tells him to keep Paloma away from them. The doorbell rings and it is Nellie whom Todd had paid to bring the baby to them. Blair comes into the foyer as Todd is trying to get rid of her by giving her money. Blair is horrified and asks the girl how she can do this. Starr looks on in amusement (she is the one who called for the girl to come get baby Jack). Blair starts yelling about Nellie trying to take the baby back and Todd finally gets her attention and tells her Nellie does not want the baby back; she is there because someone made a crank call saying for her to pick up the baby. Todd questions Nellie and she hears Starr's voice; she tells Todd that is the voice of the person that called her. Todd is furious with Starr. Blair and Todd question Starr about the phone call; Starr admits she made the call to Nellie. They ask her why; that she had wanted a baby brother; it was her idea. Starr said not any more because all anyone talked about was the baby. Todd and Blair began reassuring Starr that they still love her. They make plans to go out for the evening, leaving the baby with a sitter; Starr is thrilled; the baby begins to cry. Todd and Blair rush over to see what is wrong. Starr is mad again; goes out of the room, shuts the door. The doorbell rings (Starr says this had better not be about the stupid baby). She answers the door and it is Paloma.

Wednesday, January 16, 2002

As Blair and Todd finally get Jack asleep, they talk about Starr possibly scheming against the baby since she seems so jealous. While they are chatting, Starr is busy answering the knock at the door. It's Paloma and because she's speaking in Spanish Starr is unable to understand anything so she slams the door. Todd gets up to check on her and she tells him it was a saleswoman, one she couldn't understand. He explains to her that she should talk to her parents if something is bothering her and try to negotiate for something that she might want as they don't want her to be upset. He goes back to Blair. Once again Paloma knocks at the door and mentions Blair and the baby but Starr tells her there's no baby there and slams the door in her face again. Paloma sets her sights on a Kelly Cramer; she may know Blair. In the meantime, Blair receives a call from Kelly-she's in Llanview on newspaper business. Starr can't believe that now her mother is on the phone after being with the baby all the time. Blair quickly hangs up. Starr tells her parents she wants Jack gone or she'll go. Todd states that no one is going anywhere. He and Blair declare their love for their daughter while Todd compares the baby to Starr's pet lizards, how he'll be the same as them soon, following her around. She wants alone time with her parents without Jack, she pleads. Blair will go out and visit Kelly, Starr and her dad can play together. When they're alone, Todd again inquires about the person at the door. Starr describes her as a "weird lady speaking funny." Todd assumes she was speaking Spanish. Starr mentions that the woman said baby.

Larry addresses everyone waiting at the hospital for news of Al. He is in critical condition with internal injuries and lots of bleeding with a concussion and trauma to the spine and ribs. The next few hours will be very crucial to his survival he announces, and Max and Gabrielle must calm down before they can see him as his emotional state will be very important; he needs to have the will to live. Max promises to put aside his feelings of anger and fear and Gabby suggests they put aside their own personal problems for now. Jen runs off, followed by Cris and Lindsay. Cris tries to comfort his girlfriend; it's his fault, not hers. Of course, Lindsay lingers nearby, eavesdropping until Cris spots her. She also attempts to reassure her daughter while admonishing Cris. Carlotta arrives just then and demands that she not accuse her son of anything.

Keri wants to know why Antonio figures she wouldn't see her father any more. It's her FATHER after all, she tells him, and she will continue to see him. She tries to defend R.J. and point out that he's making amends. Antonio wants R.J. to testify against Keith Shaeffer. The couple argue while R.J. lurks nearby. She wants to give R.J. a chance, Keri says as Antonio tries to talk her out of it. She explains that R.J. has even changed because of her. Just then Antonio receives a call-he's wanted at the hospital as there's been a fight between Al and Cris. Once he's gone, R.J. saunters over. She's not ok, Keri admits. R.J. asks where Antonio is and Keri tells him they argued over him. R.J. doesn't want to come between them so perhaps he should keep his distance. Keri believes they can work everything out. R.J. is secretly pleased.

Gabrielle and Max visit with their unconscious son, encouraging him with comforting words. Al awakens and asks for Jen. In the waiting area, everyone has words-Lindsay blames Cris for the incident, Carlotta blames Lindsay. Cris takes his mother away to explain while again reassuring Jen that it's not her fault. Cris admits he hit Al because he was crazy and jealous because Jen was pregnant by Al. Carlotta is shocked and can't believe her son would still love this girl. Cris reminds her that he hurt Jen. Carlotta tells him they know whose fault it is. None of this would have happened if it weren't for R.J. Antonio gets to the hospital and agrees with both his mother and Cris but R.J. would never take the blame for this, he confirms. Cris decides to check on Al. Carlotta insists that R.J. take the fall for this. Antonio has more news for her-R.J. is Keri's father. Carlotta is less than thrilled with the news. Max has left his son's room looking for answers and Jen (against Gabrielle's better judgment). Jen fills her mom in on what happened at the quarry and says that Al has always loved her and she's always hurt him. Max arrives and Lindsay is only to happy to fill him in as she sends a nervous Jen off to see Al. Cris is dangerous and violent, he hit Al and that's how he fell. Max considers Jen to be a trouble maker but Lindsay blames Cris. Jen gets to Al's room and Gabby urges the girl to remain calm and not to hurt Al. She already has, Jen states. Al is thrilled to see Jen, asking her if she's ok. He's not concerned with himself at all. He asks her if their baby is alright. Gabrielle shudders. Antonio needs to get a statement from Cris. Keri has come to the hospital to find out what happened. She spots Carlotta first and the woman is extremely short with her, telling her to leave.
