|More Todd than Franco!|
So it's official Roger Howarth is the new Franco! However, if you ask me he is acting a lot more like Todd!
Franco greets the gang at The Haunted Star and nobody is happy to see him. He says Jason failed to kill him. Sonny points a gun at him, but Franco suggests that maybe Jason cheated death and they shouldn't kill him. Everyone wants to know what he knows about Jason, but Carly doesn't buy it and neither does Sonny. Sam tells Sonny not to shoot him, because she wants any information she can get on Jason. She asks Franco if Jason is alive. He ignores her and flirts with Elizabeth, Todd-style. Then he torments Maxie about their one night stand. He congratulates Maxie on her baby and apologizes to Liz for taking Aiden. He claims to want to apologize to everyone for his behavior, because he knows what it's like to have your child kept from you. He refers to AJ as his half brother, but AJ tells him that he means nothing to him. Franco corrects him and says he is a Quartermain and so is his daughter!
Sam pleads with him to tell her anything about Jason, but Franco continues to taught her. He says what he did to her is more important to talk about then Jason. He says Sam was passed out during her honeymoon and can't be sure if he raped her. Sam demands that he tell her what happened in Hawaii. Franco says he could tell her, but he'd rather play the video. Sam agrees and Franco presses play. Carly consoles Sam while everyone watches. We see Franco whispering into Sam's ear while she lay passed out on the bed, but then he leaves the room proving that he didn't rape her. Carly reminds Franco that he was responsible for Michael's rape in prison. AJ wasn't aware that what happened to Michael and insists that someone tell him what happened.
Tracy tries to help Luke at the Quartermain mansion. She calls out for Monica, but she isn't home. Tracy calls 911 and tries to talk to him. The ambulance arrives and she escorts Luke to the hospital. She tries to give the doctor background on Luke's medical history. Luke wakes up in the ER and Tracy tells him, "If you scare me like that again, I'll kill you!" The doctor looks at Luke test results and asks how much he had to drink. Tracy wants to call Lulu, but Luke doesn't want to bring her into it. He asks Tracy to tell him more about the business with Ava Jerome while they wait for more test results. Later when the doctor returns, he doesn't look happy.
Ava informs Kiki of her true identity on the docks. Ava tells Kiki that her father died in a fire a little over a year ago. Kiki gets upset and asks why she lied. Ava says she had to lie to keep her safe and his name was Franco. She gives Kiki the background on Franco and she also explains Kiki's connection to the Quartermain's. Ava tells her that she owns shares of ELQ which makes Kiki rich. Then Ava gives her some papers to sign. Kiki is pleased, but asks if a lawyer should be present while she signs. Ava gets pushy, which makes Kiki suspicious. Ava blurts out that she needs the money and Kiki must sign! Kiki feels used and questions how long Ava has known all of this. Once she knows the whole truth, Kiki tosses the papers at Ava's feet and storms off.
Good show today, but not sure how I feel about the whole Franco thing. Seems like it could end up being a hot mess!
See you tomorrow!
