Mon., Aug. 13, 2001 – At the Airport: David arrests Danny and accuses him of trying to skip town. Danny, unable to get on the plane, desperately screams out to stop Michelle from going into danger. Frank comes in and tells Danny that he isn’t going anywhere. Frank tells David to let Danny go. Frank says Danny and Michelle want to believe Carmen is alive, but he is a cop and can’t let Danny get on the plane. Frantic, Danny accuses Frank of picking his job over Michelle’s life. At Laurel Falls: In the shack, Michelle confronts Carmen and tells her that she isn’t stupid and she figured out Carmen planned to have her killed in Canada far away from any help. Michelle tells Carmen that the endless misery Carmen put Michelle and Danny through is finally over and Carmen will rot in jail. Carmen laughs and tells Michelle that will be over Michelle’s dead body. Carmen says she won’t be turned over to the authorities after all she has been through. Someone up there gave her another chance. Michelle tells her that Danny hates her. Carmen says she will prove to Danny how Michelle has poisoned him against her and things will be fine again. She goes towards Michelle, but Michelle pulls a gun on her and threatens to shoot Carmen. Carmen doesn’t believe her and then looks at the gun and tells Michelle the gun is a fake, she can tell by the trigger guard. Carmen and her henchman ties Michelle to a chair and she orders the guy to dispose of Michelle’s car. The man leaves and Carmen tells Michelle she has big plans for her, but wants her to spend this night in fear. She leaves and locks Michelle in the shed.
Wed., Aug. 15, 2001 – With great glee, Carmen sets up a video camera and boasts that she’s going to tape her final hours on earth so that she can watch the tape every November 4th in honor of Mick’s death and November 14th, in honor of Danny trying to kill his own mother. She then decides to move Michelle from the cabin to the docks, unaware that Michelle has secretly scribbled Robbie’s name in hopes that Danny will spot it. Claire runs to Rick to seek his help in trying to find Michelle. Ross confronts Danny in jail and complains that his attempt to leave town has put his court case in jeopardy. Danny warns him and Frank that he feels Michelle is in danger. Frank advises him that he checked after all and that Michelle was not on the flight to Canada. Rick arrives in time to hear Danny tell Frank that he now thinks Michelle is at the shack at Laurel Falls. Danny to Frank: “Frank, I understand you’ve pushed the envelope for me and Michelle a thousand times, but it’s NEVER been so important.” Frank insists that Danny needs to go to court and that the police will check the area. Danny: “If Michelle is dead, I don’t give a damn whether I’m convicted or not.” Rick convinces Frank to escort Danny to the shack before his trial continues. When they arrive, the shack is empty.
Catch the opening tag at the end of this one:
It looks like there is a break in clips in both of my normal highlight feeds. This is the point where they pick up the tag from above, Michelle pulls the fake gun, etc.
My Comments: I HATE how they have David flip back and forth, here he’s gone back to being anti-Manny. David can be such a great character and they really messed him up. How could even a prejudiced cop think this looks like Danny leaving town? IF he was running out, Danny is too smart to do this which he showed when he ran with Michelle when she was under arrest for murder. After Danny started shreiking does that really look like someone trying to get away for their own benefit? I’m SO glad that Frank did check on the plane even though I still can’t believe he had doubts. I wish Danny would have called Frank on the way.
I LOVE so much that when Michelle wakes up with a start she ALWAYS says Danny. Love Carmen’s outfit in this too. And then Rick steps up and supports Danny. This is the way I LOVE Danny-Rick’s relationship. I wish they’d left it this way.
