CAUGHT IN A TRAP

Carmen and Gus continued to conspire to exact revenge against Danny.  The scorned Mafia Mama told Aitoro that she would see to it that her estranged son paid for betraying her by going to prison.  She confided that she could not have him killed no matter what he’d done to her.  Later, Carlos plotted behind her back to have Danny and Michelle eliminated—permanently!  Gus lurked in the shadows and overheard Carlos plotting on the phone with a mystery person.

Reva and Constance came to blows after Constance overheard her encouraging Rupert, her son, and Tabitha, the maid’s daughter, to pursue their young love.  Reva suggested that the snobby, upper class matron is interested in the lower class Josh, a charge Constance vehemently denied.  In retaliation, she suggested that Reva is insane and a threat to her family.  She declared that she was having Reva committed to an asylum…
