Getting a surprise visit from Noah, Victor informs him that Tucker's awake (which'll somehow be 'good' for his music). Declining breakfast, Noah wonders where the heck Abby is????
There she is - on her way to an early morning rehab group session - and not happy about it one bit. Why, she shouldn't even BE here.
At G-worm, Diane doesn't even notice that Mike's 'blatantly' ignored her (when he comes over to grumble about missing Fen's game - to deal with the SEC). Victor's wasting Mike's time - Diane hasn't done anything wrong. Sweetiepie - it's me, Mike - the pal who's been rootin' for her. If she, Jack and Adam DID conspire, Victor will NOT let her get away with it. It's a stupid and fatal mistake, Mike leaves Diane to look worried.
Outside Tucker's room, Kay tells Neil that she and Sofia have had issues - but she knows she adores Tucker. Floating in on cloud nine, Ashley (fresh from the chapel thanking God) - thanks Kay for letting her see Tucker. Love looks good on you, Neil compliments - then praises Kay (as Ashley skips in to see Tucker). Kay still has questions - AND something she needs to do.
With Tucker, Ashley gushes - how you feeling? Taking her hand, Tucker's just fine - now.
Bumping into Devon at CL's, Mike pretends to be hip - excited about when his and Noah's album 'drops'. On the patio, Mike's French is even worse - as he calls Eden in France (and learns that she's 'not around').
Back at the ranch, Victor updates Noah that Abby's in a facility. Once she gets out, she'll be well rested - and they can talk all Noah wants. Leaving, Noah exchanges a few words with Kay (who then queries Victor; why was Tucker's first memory of Abby - running him down?)
Reluctantly joining the group therapy session, Abby's stunned to see a familiar face - Eden?
At CL's, Mike interrupts Noah (with Devon) - to wonder if he knows where Eden is. Hmm - she could be visiting friends in England. He'll check and let Mike know (but for now, he'll just stand there and look troubled).
Late for 'introductions' the therapist introduces Eden to Abby (who's then asked to talk about herself). And as Abby assumes all know who she is, Eden sarcastically asks if she's 'in' for addiction to foundation. Abby's in for 'partying too much' (according to her Dad). Oh well - rehab will be good for her career - she won't be there long enough to make friends. The therapist called out, Abby confronts Eden (who's apparently there for an eating disorder) - they have no rehab in Paris!? Eden's moved on from Noah - a coupla times. No, she hasn't told Mike she's in the US - her problems are HER business (and Abby better not tell anyone in GC).
Of COURSE Abby wasn't driving, Victor claims Tucker's confused. Abby's in rehab - for stress. Sounds like a press release, Kay sispects the timing. IS Abby hiding something? Ashley was driving, Victor insists - why look for someone else to accuse?! Suspicious, Kay thinks he doth protest too much - and is tired of getting the run around. Victor suggests she focus on the most important thing; Tucker's recovery. But it DOES matter to Kay (and once upon a time it'd matter to Victor; her FRIEND).
As Tucker signs his release papers, he suddenly looks disoriented. Prattling on about how sexy he is in his reading glasses, Ashley notices - what's wrong?
Tucker can read the sentences - but doesn't understand what they mean. Is this normal? As the nurse goes to fetch the doctor, Ashley reassures - it'll take a while to 'reacclimate'. Yeah - like jet lag.
At G-worm, Neil and Leslie exchange apologies (for being out of touch). Just gimme a call when things ease up, Leslie leaves with a quick kiss (giving Neil something to look forward to). Joining Diane, Leslie tells her it doesn't look good.
Back at CL's, Noah gripes about having to hear that Abby's in rehab from his Grandpa - and he didn't even know his Grandma was drinking. Devon can relate - he didn't know about the craziness goin' on with his own sister. It's easier to deal with stuff from a distance. Easier for whom? Noah feels guilty that Abby's surrounded by strangers.
Dear God - Eden's been there a coupla MONTHS? Does it remind her of the Ashram? Abby's sarcastic (and wonders what Noah saw in her). Let's just stay out of each other's way. No sooner has Abby agreed, the therapist comes over to announce that Eden (as senior member) will be Abby's buddy - they'll do everything together. It'll be good for both of you. Super - awesome, Abby pastes on a smile.
At the ranch, Mike's now in the know - Ashley was covering for Abby all along (though looked him in the eye and denied it). Victor insists it was an alcohol induced accident - the case can't go to trial. Mike's asked to 'bend the rules'.
No - Mike's WON'T be risking his law license - IF he's cautious. OK - maybe Tucker will say it was an accident. Victor reminds that he named Abby - who knows what he'll say next. There WAS another witness, Mike reminds. Hmm - Diane Jenkins, I'll be damned, Victor seems to have completely forgotten her involvement (and wonders what Mike has in mind).
Still at G-worm, Diane's unconcerned - she had cramps (which stopped once she got in the ambulance) - big deal. Not buyin' it, Leslie warns that juries are unpredictable. Prepare for unpleasant realities. Like a fine? No - like a jail sentence. Diane can't be locked up. But Martha Stewart survived. Do I look like I knit!? Everyone needs a hobby, Leslie leaves Diane (who's then joined by Kay - wanting to know about the night Tucker almost died).
Ashley fussing - and tucking him in (no pun intended), Tucker takes her hand; marry me - right now.
Noah moans and groans to Devon. Eden once called him a self centered Newman - and (since coming back to GC) he's done nothing but prove her right.
Meanwhile, Abby flashes back to her discussion with Victor (on the jet) - being told NOT to confess (wait to see what Tucker has to say). Rejoining her, Eden informs Abby that her purse will be checked (and lists the items she can't have; cosmetics included). Huffing, Abby checked herself in - and can check herself right back out. Go ahead - Eden comments that she looks a little rough without make up. Does this place work or NOT, BUDDY? Yes - Eden's not the same person she was when SHE came.
At G-worm, what little information the suspicious Kay gets from Diane (who's more interested in her phone call) - leaves her to tell Neil that the son she 'adores' needs her protection now (that he's awake) more than ever.
With orderlies and nurses hovering in the doorway, the Minister asks if either have anything to say (before he declares Tucker and Ashley man and wife). A wet eyed Ashley blathers on. This is the perfect wedding - beeping monitors are better than twinkling lights. Oh, what a good life we'll have. Kissing his bride's hand, Tucker thanks God for Ashley - and their good life - always.
Told that Eden's leaving rehab in a few days, Abby's horrified that she's not going to GC (to visit her brother). Noah doesn't need to know about this either, Eden knows he inherited his Dad's 'rescue gene' (and she doesn't need saving). There's no reason they need to ever see one another again.
On the patio, Noah's on the phone - how do I go about visiting a patient at your clinic?
Joining Neil at G-worm, Devon feels he hasn't been around enough - for him or Lily. Nice - a smiling Neil can handle that.
Reluctantly ushered into the ranch (by Mike - and to face Victor), Diane's told that she's created considerable problems for herself - by aligning herself with Victor's enemies. But - he offers to make it all 'go away'.
Seeing the crowd of medics at Tucker's door, a panicked Kay pushes her way through. Entering in time to hear 'Mr McCall, you may kiss your bride', she looks in need of medical attention (as Tucker, still in his bed is kissed by his new wife).
Next: At the trailer, Nick, hands on his hips, scowls down at Billy - what the hell's the matter with you? Struggling up from the floor, Billy mutters something unintelligible ... Can we trust one another - that's what I believe you're saying, Victor clarifies whatever Vikki's just said ... An astounded Kay flaps her gums wordlessly - as Tucker lashes out angrily - While I was laying here - incapacitated - you undermined my judgment!?
My Thoughts: If Eden's leaving rehab in a coupla days, why is the therapist assigning HER as Abby's 'buddy'? ... Tucker's crucial to Ashley's life - like water - and air? (I just threw up in my mouth a little - and I bet my breath's still fresher than the groom's. Since he didn't get out of bed to brush his teeth, I hope someone at least slipped him a mint) ... How is Noah's music effected by Tucker being in a coma? Kay's in charge - she can't 'drop an album'? ... If Tucker's so famous, why hasn't anyone heard of his recovery on the radio or TV? ... Um Ashley - I don't think 're-aclimate' is a word ... How come Devon gives Mike (whom he barely knows) a hearty hug - but gives Neil a 'hey' with no physical contact - not even a hand shake? ... Mike wants to retain his 'good relationship with the bar' - yet HE'S the one who suggests another avenue; Diane ... To the best of my knowledge, the actor who plays Noah possesses absolutely no musical talent (which makes it more ridiculous when they continue to make it sound like he's the next (insert your favourite make vocalist here) ..... Is Frank at the guard house not on duty yet? Why else would Victor get not one, but TWO unannounced visitors .... Hasn't Mike ever heard of the word 'delegate'? Given the hefty retainer Victor's always crowing about, you'd think he could hire an assistant - send someone else to DC (to deal with the SEC) in his place. Never mind missing Fen's baseball game - who's holding Lauren's hand? Sharon's proven that any idiot can escape GC's county lock up (which Daisy currently calls home). WTH is Eden wearing? Nice display of white bra strap under black tank top (doesn't she know they come with handy shelf-bras nowadays?).. ... The contest announced below will be launched tonight. I'm just tweaking it a bit - and will upload after my daughter's soccer game. Watch for the link to be posted on the home page .
