One: Some of the Hortons are throwing Alice a 75th anniversary party
for her and Tom's wedding. Abigail is there with Chelsea talking about
her grandparents, while they make a banner for the party. Chelsea makes
snide remarks about having an anniversary when one of the people is
dead. Abigail does not think it is so silly. Chelsea gets crude talking
about sex, annoying Abigail.
Oh, my gosh, not everything is about sex, Chelsea. It's about love, true
love. My great-grandparents had it, aannd my mom and dad have
CHELSEA: You mean had! Why do you keep
talking as though he's still alive?

Two: A repeat of the pervious episode. Jack has just run inside, after
not being able to stop Jennifer. He runs to the phone.
Come on, I can stop her.

he puts the phone to his ear.
(Talking to himself) Come on, Jennifer! Answer! (Taping the phone) Answer!

jaw where he slugged her, and looks maliciously at him. Jennifer has
yet to answer and Jack gets impatient, and mutters to himself
Jennifer is driving, her cell rings, and she pushes a button, and
talks through her head set.

Hello?! Hello, is anyone there?

on the other end.

H-hello, can you hear me? L-listen I have a bad connection, is anyone

Sorry, wrong number.
hangs up, rises, smiling wickedly, and puts the phone away.
The scenes cuts back to Jennifer who is driving.
Madison looks down at Jack.
Haaa, mission accomplished.

Back in the car.
(Sighing) Haa, my gosh, why.... why do I feel like Jack is in trouble.
Three: Back in the car Jennifer keeps thinking about her feelings that
Jack is in trouble. She debates with herself.
Jennifer, pull yourself together. J-just concentrate on your driving,
Jack can't be in trouble because he's not
Four: Back at the Deveraux', Jack is still unconscious. Madison goes
to check on him.
Sorry I had to club you, but we couldn't let that little wife of ours
know that you were alive.

You're gonna have a killer headache when you come to. (Looking down at
him) But if I let him get near anyone, Count di Mera will feed me to the

puts everything back, and goes over to his unconscious body. She ties
his arms behind his back. Then she starts running her hands over his
chest. She looks at him, enjoying what she sees. She rolls him on his
back and continues to run her hands over him.
no mystery what that little wife (she runs her hands over his face)
of yours sees in you.
her fingers over his lips. Just then Jack starts to come to, moaning.
Ha...., ha....., Jennifer.

bends over him beginning to kiss him seductively. She moans as she kisses
Jack. Jack is still partially out of it. Madison is continuing to kissing
him, very seductively.
continues to kiss Jack, who in his semi-unconscious state believing
it is Jennifer, responds.
Five: Madison is all over an semi-unconscious Jack, she seems to enjoy
what happened between them. Jack still thinks it is Jennifer. Half-conscious
he mutters Jennifer's name.
Ah.... Thank God, Jennifer it's you. (Exhales) Hu.... I was having this
dream, you were this imposter, trying to take me back to di Mera's castle.
first it looks and sounds like Jennifer.
head shaking) I don't know how to tell you this....
looks at her realizing it is no dream, the voice returns back to Madison,
and then he sees her instead of Jennifer.
(Cont.) ....but you are going back to the castle!
smiles sadistically at him. Jack is not completely coherent.
No, no not again!
head is partially lifted on the ground, in frustration he hits it
back on the floor, and groans and grimaces in pain. Madison is on
her knees looking down at him.
(Cont.) Ah.... Ah.... Ah, you knocked me out.
MADISON: (Smiling) Ahh.... you didn't give me a choice.
JACK: (His eyes open, breathing heavily) Jennifer,
(Swallowing, looking around in desperation) what did you do with Jennifer.
I don't know anything about your wife. (Bending down farther, smiling)
My only assignment is you, (Seductively putting her finger over his
lips) and that's turned out to have some pretty good fringe benefits.
You're one terrific lover Jack Deveraux.
eyes have widen as she talks. She then bends down and tries to seductive
kiss him again. Jack turns his head away, revolted, but still too weak
to do anything.
No, no.... no, no!
rests his head down, again. Jacks gasps a few times.
stops, and sits up.
gets up and starts to walk away, throwing up her arm.
You.... you knew, you knew I love my wife.
makes a scoffing laugh.
You know, I bet the Count will let me pay you conjugal visits to the castle
any time I want.
JACK: (Shaking his head) You're not for real.
MADISON: (Mockingly) You thought so when you were all
over me in that cozy little cabin. A few more sessions like that and you'll
be saying, "Jennifer who?"
is disgusted by her or that thought. He vehemently shakes his head.
does another scoffing laugh.
MADISON: Who are you kidding, you didn't even notice
walks off. Jack looks around. He struggles, trying to break free.
I, damnit! I ga....
groans. Then he notices what she used to tie him. He thinks to himself.
what she tied me up with! Guess you're not as smart as you think you are!
around making sure she is not looking.
Patrick is at Maggie's talking to his mother Bonnie, he is still groggy
after Chelsea drugged him at the Cheatin' Heart, trying to seduce him.
Jennifer arrives, he notices she is up set. She finally tells him that
she thought she heard and saw Jack earlier that evening at their home.
Patrick tries to convince her otherwise. He thinks that she has not
had much sleep and that Jack has been on her mind all the time. She
tells him that she thought things would get easier. However, she misses
Jack more than ever. "And the more I miss him, the angrier I get,"
she tells him. He tries to tell her it is part of the grieving process
-- though is it because he is trying to make her feel better or is he
in fact still involved with Tony. She tells him how miraculous it was
on the island, how despite all the odds she and Jack found each other.
She tells him that Jack, Jr. was born, and that despite Tony controlling
their lives, she had hope, hope that they would return together. She
wonders how after getting through all of that, in tears, "How could
God take my husband away from me, *again*!" She apologizes, "I
just want him, *I want him*!" She wants him there with her, wants
him to help her raise their children. He massages her shoulders, trying
to comfort her, saying he knows. Though she knows that it never will
happen. She realizes she needs to move on with her life. Though she
does not sound too sure about it.
Back at the house, Jack is wiggling out of the rope.
Madison comes back into the room. She bends down next to him smiling,
and then touches him again, caresses his hair.
MADISON: Don't let this go to your head, but I'm going
to miss you.
She does not
notice that his hands are free. As she is talking he grabs for her neck,
and chokes her. She gasps for breath as he brings her down to the floor.
I'm not going to miss you!
She continues to gasp for breath and gags as he chokes her with all his
might. He grunts. Finally she is unconscious. He breaths heavily from
the exertion. The scene cuts ahead a few minutes later, a rope is tied
around her feet, and up to her hands. Holding the gun, he drags her across
This is a real rope, so next time you
wanna time someone up, you need to use (putting her down
on a chair) a real rope and not a trick

Okay.... (looking at the gun) you don't need that anymore (putting it on
a table), okay.
walks over and picks up the phone, and punches in a number.
Now it is time for me, to call the authorities and Jennifer. Ha....
exhales, and puts the phone to his head.
Eight: Jennifer and Patrick enter Maggie's house. She notices a photo
on a table and stops. She walks over to it and picks it up. Patrick
looks frustrated and walks away. It is a photo of her and Jack [it
was from a publicity shot from back in 2001]. She puts the photo to
her chest, and fantasizes about her and Jack.
is Alice and Tom's 75th anniversary. Jack, wearing a suit, drags her
away from the rest of the guests into the hallway. Jennifer looks
back smiling at what is going on in the other room. Jack has his old
sense of humor and personality, subtlety tweaking things that are
silly. This fantasy Jack does seem to find the whole anniversary party
for a dead man rather silly. Throughout the scene they hold hands.

little silly, what's going on in there.

JENNIFER: (Cont.) Do you?
Jack immediately tries to counter it so as not to disappoint
or anger Jennifer.

to do that. It obviously means alot to her.

I love you more! Ha.... ha.... ha....

laughs. Jack bends down and kisses her, and she puts her arm around
him, and responds.
gets out of her fantasy, and sadly puts back the photo. She hears a
sound and turns to see Alice at the doorway.
I've always loved that photograph of you and Jack.
walks towards Alice.
Gram. Ah, I just.... I miss him so much.
ALICE: I know you do dear, but he's much closer than

A little later they are still hugging. Alice tells Jennifer that if
she feels Jack's presence, that is because he is around, and always
Nine: Back at the Deveraux', Jack is on the phone trying to get help,
but he seems to be getting nowhere, and is very frustrated.
I can't believe you put me on hold! Ha....
sighs, and hangs up, and then punches in another number.
To hell with this! I'm going to the police station, and getting the hell
out of here before anything else goes wrong.

he hears Madison's voice.

and pointing the gun at him.

will probably be sent back to the castle, never to see his family
