March 2000 Week 1


February 28
At the Kiriakis Mansion, Victor is on the phone talking with Roman about Stefano. Victor still has no news on him, and Roman hasn't heard from Bo or John yet. Elsewhere, Kate, who Victor thinks is planning their wedding, can't stop thinking about Nicholas. Victor approaches Kate from behind and startles her. Victor tells Kate that he wants to start courting her again, and he thought they would go dancing tonight. Suddenly, Kate bursts into tears and runs out of the room. In the foyer, Nicholas shows up to talk to Kate, but she says there is nothing more to say, and she leaves. Victor shows up and tells Nicolas that Kate suddenly started crying and ran off, and he doesn't know why. Victor then asks Nicholas if he has something he needs signed? Nicholas says no, he just came to deliver a message from Aunt Viv, she bids him a fond farewell. Victor is confused, so Nicholas explains that Vivian went on a cruise with Ivan after he won forty million dollars. Victor is completely stunned, but he realizes Vivian was trying to say goodbye to him last night. Victor says that he has to get in touch with Vivian to talk to her about her stocks. Nicholas says that has all been taken care of, she has handed them over to him, and he is taking over her 49% of the company. Victor tells him to think again because there is no way he's taking over Vivian's place at Titan. Nicholas is insulted and says he does have an MBA, but Victor says that Vivian had an instinct for running a company and that is something you can't learn in a business school. Victor tells Nicholas that he is a young man and should take advantage of this time, and when he is ready then he will welcome him as a partner. Nicholas vows to prove to him that his aunt was right and he can run this company, and then he leaves.

Upstairs, Kate is in her room crying when Lucas shows up demanding to talk to her. She tells him that she wants to be alone, but he says that is important and he has to talk to her. Kate opens the door, and Lucas realizes she has been crying. He wants to know what is going on because he wants to help her. Kate tells him that nobody can help her. He refuses to leave until she tells him what is wrong. He asks if Victor is causing problems for her again by treating her like his servant. Kate says it is not Victor. Lucas doesn't like the way Victor treats her in her own house, but Kate says this is his house. Lucas says if that is the way she feels then they should all pack up and move out. Lucas says that he doesn't like the way Victor has treated her ever since he came home from the nursing home, and he hasn't said anything about it out of his sense of loyalty to Victor. However, he doesn't like seeing Victor treat his mother like she is beneath him and not living up to his standards. Kate says that perhaps she's not living up to his standards, so Lucas says "To hell with him!" Kate tells Lucas that he should be proud to be part of Victor's life and family. Lucas doesn't understand what is going on with his mother. He tells her that all he sees is her loving Victor and treating him like the center of her universe, and she gets nothing in return. Kate tells Lucas that it may look like she treats Victor as the center of her universe, but that doesn't mean that is what is in her heart. Lucas asks Kate what she's trying to tell him? Kate says that she has made mistakes, so Lucas tells her to stop making them. Kate tells him that it is too late, and there is someone else who knows what she has done and could destroy her. Lucas realizes his mom is talking about Vivian. Kate says that if Vivian tells Victor what she has done, she could lose Victor forever. Lucas says that Victor may be critical of her, but he loves her and she'll never lose him. However, Kate is still troubled by Vivian. Lucas tells her not to let Vivian get to her, and she only has power over her if she gives it to her. Kate asks him if Sami's presence in this house doesn't drive him crazy? Lucas says not anymore because Sami can't hurt him. Kate doubts that and says that if Sami had scene Nicole at Tuscany on New Years, she would have dragged him to court. Lucas becomes angry and wonders why his mom turns everything to an attack on his wife. Kate only wants him to be happy, and Nicole doesn't give a damn about his happiness or Will. Lucas is upset because he came here to comfort her, and all she is doing is attacking his wife. KAte eventually apologizes, and Lucas tells Kate to just trust in Victor's love for her the same way he trusts in Nicole's love for him. Lucas leaves, and Kate remembers Vivian catching her and Nicholas at the lodge. She knows Vivian is just waiting for the perfect moment to drop the bomb on her.

Kate goes downstairs to see Victor, who tells Kate that he has to go to Chicago and invites her to come with him. Kate says she can't because she has too much to do. Kate hopes Victor knows how much she loves him. He hugs her and assures her that they will have the life they always wanted.

In Paris, Kurt pulls a gun on a sleeping Stefano, but Hope yells out "No!" Kurt fires the gun, but Stefano rolls over just in time. Stefano jumps up, and Kurt and Stefano wrestle over the gun. Stefano yells at Hope to run when he gets the gun away from Kurt, but Kurt quickly grabs Hope and uses her as a shield. Hope tries to persuade Kurt to let them go, but he refuses to listen to them. Stefano warns Kurt to let Hope go, but Kurt knows Stefano won't shoot him. Hope yells at Stefano to just shoot, so he does! Kurt falls to the floor, and Hope runs for it. As she is running down the steps, she hears another shot, and wonders what is going on. She runs downstairs and tries to use the phone, but it is dead. Back upstairs, Kurt has been shot in the shoulder, and Stefano has passed out. Hope runs around the mansion trying to find a way out. She ends up putting on some of Gina's furs, only to be grabbed by Kurt. She begs Kurt not to do this because her baby deserves to live. Kurt tells her to be quiet, and then knocks her unconscious.

Onboard the plane, John tries to get rid of the bomb before it explodes, but he's not quick enough! The bomb goes off and rocks the plane. The lights flicker and the plane jumps all over. Mimi is frantic, and Marlena and Belle try to calm her. Meanwhile, Lily, who is totally zonked on tranquilizers, decides to play stewardess and asks if she can get anyone some tea or coffee. Greta wants to check on Eric, and she goes to the cargo hold. Marlena tries to chase after her, but she has to attend Mimi, who faints. Meanwhile, Julie manages to get the pilot to wake up for a bit, but he ends up passing back out. Lily totally loses it and starts handing out cotton towels to everyone.

Down in the cargo hold, John's ears are ringing, and he calls out to his "men" to wake up. Eric and Shawn were out cold, and he slaps them awake. Eric says they have to close the door, but John says it won't close. He instructs them to push the containers in front of the door to try and create some sort of a seal. Greta shows up to be with Eric, so John head up to the cockpit.

In the cockpit, Bo and Doug lose control of the plane and Bo sends out a mayday. John shows up to help try and fly the plane and works to try and restore the power. John splices some wires and manages to get the power back. Bo realizes that they are not heading towards Paris because it is dark out, they are in an entirely different time zone. Suddenly, the engines begin to blow out. Doug shows up at tells Bo and John that the pilot and co pilot are coming too, and they say that they should be in Paris soon. John says they aren't anywhere near Paris, for all they know they are headed to the arctic circle. Another engine blows out, and John says they have to land this plane now. He sees an island up ahead and says they will have to land it there. Bo goes to the cabin and tells everyone to put on their life vests and buckle up. The pilot goes up to the cockpit to help John, and the pilot realizes the plane has run out of fuel and they are flying on empty! John and the pilot are forced to crash land the plane into the sea.

Onboard Rolfe and Bart's jet, Rolfe and Bart hear screaming, but then the screen goes black. Bart is furious and calls Rolfe a sick bastard for letting all those innocent people die. Rolfe says there was a chance that this could happen and they both knew it, but Bart says this was all just a sick game to him. The TV screen comes back on, and they see Bo and Doug trying to get John to respond. Bart tells Rolfe to help them land the plane. Rolfe refuses to help them because he wants to put John to the ultimate test. Rolfe knocks out all the instruments on the plane. Bart asks him if he wants them all to die? Rolfe says no, he wants John to save them to prove what a genius he is for creating him. They watch them on the TV for awhile, and Rolfe can't believe John didn't figure out they were flying in the wrong direction hours ago. Bart begs Rolfe to help them, but he refuses. Rolfe says that there fate is in John's hands now, and if he doesn't save him, it will be the greatest disappointment of his life. Rolfe turns the monitor off and tells Bart that they are going home now and will no longer think about those people. Bart can't believe Rolfe is going to let all those people die. Rolfe says if John is the man he thinks he is, then he will save them. If not, C'est la guerre (not C'est la vie).


February 29
At the Kiriakis Mansion, everyone is eating breakfast. Victor reads the paper and he becomes angry about Brandon's feud with Abe and tells Brandon to resolve this quickly and quietly or move out of this house. Nicole says if Brandon goes, I go! Sami says that would be the silver lining, and Lucas and Sami start arguing. Victor says as long as Brandon lives in his house, he is a reflection on the Kirkias' name. Brandon says he just wants to see justice, but Victor says this is about one thing only, revenge. Brandon asks why he would think that? Victor says he's had it out for Abe since the boxing match. They end up in a huge argument. Brandon says that he's only trying to protect his civil rights and he will move out because he doesn't want to live in a house with someone who condones police brutality. Victor says that he doesn't have to move out, just tone it down and don't get into any mud-slinging. Meanwhile, Faye shows up outside and can't believe the palace her children live in. Henderson confronts Faye and tells her that this is private property, no soliciting. Nicole shows up to handle her mother.

Nicole tells her mom that she'll go get him, but tells her mom to go around back and use the service entrance. Nicole fetches Brandon, who runs to see his mom. Sami's curiosity is sparked, and she wonders who Brandon is so anxious to see. Sami and Nicole start insulting one another, and Victor tells them to stop it. Nicole says she wouldn't have to deal with this if her knight in shining armor would defend her. Victor tells Nicole to grow up, and he excuses himself. Nicole thinks they all like being mean to her, and Sami feels really sorry for her. Lucas warns Sami that she's about this close to finding a new place to live.

Elsewhere, Faye tells Brandon that she saw the latest headline, and she's worried that this whole Abe Carver thing will lead to disaster. Faye tells him that Abe was a nice man and she wants him to stop this. Brandon refuses, and he grows angry when she says he is as stubborn as his father. Nicole shows up and is angry that her mother has come inside. Brandon tells Nicole that this is their mother and she should be welcomed here. Nicole says this is her home, but Brandon says he lives her too. Nicole and Brandon start arguing, and Victor shows up to break it up. However, he recognizes Faye and tells her that he hasn't seen her at the country club and he misses his favorite waitress. He asks her what she is doing here? She tells him that she came to see Brandon because he is her son. She says she has to go now, so she gives Brandon a kiss goodbye. After Faye leaves, Brandon leaves as well.

At the Wesley's house, Chloe is giving Craig a hard time about drinking coffee, but he teases her for drinking decaffeinated coffee. Craig says he does drink too much coffee, so she offers him some of hers. He tells her that he can't expose his patients to caffeine withdrawal, and begins to get the jitters. They both start laughing, until Nancy shows up dressed just like Chloe! Craig asks her if she lost her way to the closet? Nancy says it is her new look, she wanted to find out what it was like to where no color at all. Nancy says she wanted to see if she got anything out of it. Chloe tells her that she looks ridiculous, and tells her to were the attention grabbing clothes she usually wears, that awfully gaudy stuff. Nancy asks if she's saying she craves attention? Craig says that his wife looks good in anything, and he decides to get a camera to take a picture of this moment for posterity, which angers Chloe. She tells them both to just stop it! Chloe "how dares" Nancy for mocking and ridiculing her. Nancy says that she was only trying to get close to her and she's sorry she made a mistake. Chloe says she is sorry, and she is making a fool of herself. Nancy says she only wanted to get to know her, but Chloe says she doesn't want to be known by anyone. Craig tries to play peacekeeper between them. Chloe tells Nancy that she focuses way to much time on trying to make her feel loved, but she doesn't need it. She says perhaps when she was a little girl she would have enjoyed it, but that time has past. Chloe says all she wants to be is left alone! Nancy ends up in tears and doesn't understand why she would want to be alone. Nancy begs her to let her be friend, but Chloe tells her that she's old enough to be her mother! Nancy cries that everything she does is wrong, and she asks Chloe what she could do that would be right? Nancy says she only did this to try and get close to her, she didn't want to dress up in these stupid clothes. Clhoe thinks Nancy just called her stupid, and she becomes even more angry. She says she's probably late for school now, and storms off. Craig comforts his wife, who wonders what possessed her to think that she could do this. As they talk, Chloe listens in on them. Craig tells Nancy that Chloe has a lot of emotional baggage, she is distant, she is eccentric, and she's not going to conform to her ideal notion of a daughter. When Craig tells her that she's doing good so far, Nancy jokes that she could write a book about the do's and don'ts of living with a teenage girl, but so far all she has is a lot of don'ts. Nancy cries that the books say that you should spend quality time with your child and make them feel loved and important, but those don't work with Chloe. She continues to cry about how foolish she feels and how Chloe makes her feel so much less about herself. Craig tells her she has plenty of time to grow closer to Chloe. Nancy doesn't understand how was getting along with Chloe so well this morning and making her laugh. Craig tells her that there is no formula, he just isn't trying as hard as she is. When Craig says that Chloe will have forgotten the entire incident when she gets home from school, Chloe says, to herself, "Don't be to sure Craig!"

In France, Kurt has brought Hope to Gina's bedroom. He tells a woozy Hope that a doctor is on the way. Hope asks if he knows she is his prisoner? Kurt says he doesn't like that word and tells her that she is his girlfriend, who he got pregnant. He warns her that if she doesn't go along with his story, she will go back up to the turret. He also tells her that he'll use his gun if she tries to escape again, and this time he won't miss! The doctor shows up and asks Kurt what happened to his shoulder? Kurt says he was cleaning his gun and it went off, but he is fine. He says that it is his girlfriend that he is worried about. He looks at Hope and tells Kurt that this woman is very ill!

Everyone onboard is grateful to be alive, and they do a head check to make sure everyone is okay. Lily doesn't respond to the role call, but she is alive. She eventually wakes up and says that she thinks she concerned her fear of flying, with the help of her pills! She asks for some more, but ends up passing back out. John shows up to be with his family, and Doug asks him where they are? John says they are on a sandbar in the ocean, and it is only a matter of time before they begin to shift around. Suddenly, the plane jerks, and John tells everyone to hold on. Suddenly, Shawn notices that Bo is nowhere to be found. John says that he must be in the back, so he'll go check it out. John makes it to the back of the plane, and the door had been blown open with the crash. John realizes Bo might be out in the water, so he dives in to find him. John finds Bo, who he calls soldier, and he tells him to hold on because he's the one man he didn't count on loosing on this mission. John and Shawn carry Bo into the main cabin for the "doctor" to administer therapy. Marlena checks on Bo and announces that he is not breathing. Marlena performs mouth to mouth on Bo, and he eventually spits up the water. The plane continues to shift, so John tells everyone to get ready to abandon ship. The pilot, who was out surveying, tells everyone that there is an island not far from them. ALice announces that the only thing to do is to swim for it! Everyone jumps out of the plane and into the sea. As Greta is about to jump, John tells her not to think about her mother right now other than how much she loved her. One by one, everyone jumps out. Belle and Mimi are among the last to go, and Belle telling her dad how much she loves him seems to snap John out of mercenary mode for a second. John asks the "doctor" if she is ready? Marlena tells him that with him she is already ready, and they kiss. The plane suddenly shifts as John and Marlena prepare to jump.

She says it makes her feel like she's found her way home. She kneels down and begins to smear mud on her face and looks at herself in the water. Eric asks her why she feels at home here? Greta says the first thing she noticed was the air, it is heavy and you can feel your body move through it. She tells him that it reminds her of the years she spent in the bayou. Greta tells him that when she lived in the Bayou she had forgotten about Paris, and she felt safe there. She begins to doubt that she has made a better life for herself in Salem. She also thinks that perhaps their crashing here was a sign that she belongs here. Eric cleans the mud off of Greta's face and tells her that even though some people have to be alone, she isn't one of them. Eric tells Greta that people think he is helping her through rough times, but she was the one who helped him through his rough times. He tells her that he saw something in her that made him realize he would be okay. Eric tells her that he would do anything to make her feel safe. Greta apologizes for walking off and worrying him, but she hasn't fully accepted the fact that he isn't going to leave her like everyone else in her life. Eric makes Greta say "Eric won't leave her," and then he gives her a kiss. Greta tells Eric that she wants him, but . . . Eric tells her that there is no timetable, no expectations, they can take it one step at a time. Eric backs away from her, and then starts to undress! Greta is shocked, but Eric says he only wants to go swimming, he has a swimsuit on underneath his jeans. Eric jumps in, and soon Greta joins him.
