Port Charles Update Thursday 7/18/02
Marissa studies Ricky's photo of Casey, now understanding why
thought they were the same person. She asks Ricky about her, and he
says he loved her. Uncomfortable, Karen goes to check on a patient
while they talk. Ricky explains that Casey had a very rough life,
bouncing around from one bad foster home to the next, and always
running away. Now she's dead, and seeing Marissa made it seem as if
she were back among the living. Marissa understands, but advises him
to go after Karen, who didn't look at all happy about this. Ricky
agrees. He finds Karen and apologizes for what happened. It was like
seeing a ghost. Karen understands, saying he lit up like a Christmas
tree when he saw Marissa. Ricky reassures Karen that he's with her
Alison yells for Jack and Rafe, who come running. She says Livvie isn't breathing, but Livvie suddenly sits up and asks what happened. That's exactly what Jack wants to know. Livvie claims not to know why they thought she was dragged off, so Rafe and Jack explain about finding a piece of her nightgown and noticing the absence of footprints. She flashes back to the moment she saw it looming over her and claims nobody dragged her anywhere. She says she went looking for Rafe and got lost. Then she thought he was leaving her and the baby, and she started running back but got her foot caught on some tree limbs. Then she lost her shoe, and bumped her head when she went to get it. Jack doesn't believe her for a second. Rafe wants to get her to the hospital to be checked out, but she protests. Jack demands to know why she doesn't want to make sure the baby is all right. Rafe picks her up and carries her off.
Doree is sitting alone at the Recovery Room when Chris joins her. She
doesn't believe his claim that he's been meaning to call. He insists
it's true. He wanted to take a break but didn't want to never see her
again. Doree reminds him he said she was clingy. She should have
listened to her mother and left sex for later, after they at least
knew each other better. She doesn't normally act that way with men she
barely knows, but he really got to her. She was really hot for him and
didn't care that it was one-sided. Chris says he loved being with her
but isn't ready for a real relationship. He thought that's where it
was headed, so he needed to slow things down a bit. That's all. He
didn't want to end it. She doesn't believe him but appreciates the
lie, especially after the hard week she's had. The chief is after everyone to catch the shadow man but they don't have any clues. Chris doesn't think they should be looking; the guy is performing a
community service. In fact, the guy is a hero. Doree takes issue with
that. She thinks it's somebody who couldn't hack the police academy.
Chris thinks the cops feel threatened by someone who's doing their job
better than they are. Doree asks Chris whether he owns a black cape.
If he did, she'd slap a pair of handcuffs on him. He likes that idea
and says he'll be off in a couple of hours, but she turns him down. He
wishes her luck finding the guy but thinks he just has one too many
tricks for them.
