The Inside Story: They Say the Mind is the First to Go
A naive Stacy issues Rex an ultimatum — either sleep with her once more or she will destroy the extra bag of blood. Rex refuses to play games with her, however, telling her that, while he would do anything to save his son, he would feel repulsed and disgusted during every second that they were intimate. Crushed, a dejected Stacy hands over the bag of blood to Rex on Monday, July 20. As Rex and Gigi celebrate that Stacy is finally out of their lives, the coniving little trap secretly vows to continue fighting until her claws are firmly into her man. Later, a carefree Gigi encounters her slutty sister in a parking garage armed with a crowbar, which she used to vandalize Gigi’s car. Stacy taunts her sister once more, claiming that she isn’t giving up without a fight. Fed up with her sister’s manipulations, Gigi physically attacks Stacy on Tuesday, July 21. Lunging for Gigi, Stacy takes a tumble down a flight of stairs. Meanwhile, after being confronted by Rex, Roxy makes a tearful admission that Shane’s stem cell donor and Rex’s father are one in the same. As she is about to reveal his identity, Gigi calls with news of Stacy’s accident on Wednesday, July 22. As much as she despises her sister, Gigi is nonetheless relieved to learn that she was not seriously injured in the fall. While Rex continues to lie to Gigi about sleeping the enemy, the doctor takes Stacy by surprise with the news that she’s pregnant. After learning just what a wackjob Stacy was the night before, Rex contacts Bo to press charges against her, and is clearly concerned for Gigi and Shane’s safety on Friday, July 23. Losing all touch with reality, Stacy contemplates a peaceful, happy life with Rex and their baby. Just wanting the situation to end once and for all, Gigi offers to drop the charges against Stacy, on the condition that she disappear from their lives forever. And Rex confesses to Bo that he slept with Stacy only once, and that he never plans to share the news with Gigi.

A Closer Look: Green with Envy
Once the divorce papers are signed, John and Blair share a bittersweet farewell. Starr and Cole have sex for the first time since creating baby Hope on Wednesday, July 22. After witnessing his son kissing Langston, Ernesto completely disowns Markko. Langston tries to raise Markko’s spirits. After waking up and basking in the afterglow of their night together, Starr and Cole overhear some shocking news on Hope’s baby monitor on Thursday, July 23. The pair listens as Dorian scolds Todd for sleeping with Blair. After convincing Dorian that Téa is really the one he wants to be with, she offers to give him pointers on how to get back in her good graces. Meanwhile, Blair pays Téa a visit under the pretense of apologizing for her actions, but is really there to gloat about her tryst with Todd. As things heat up, Blair and Téa quickly get swept up into a major catfight. After delivering the final blow, a smug Blair storms out. By Friday, July 24, Téa is dumbfounded when Todd, whom she thinks has finally lost his mind, presents her with a key to La Boulaie and invites her to move in. The news, as expected, does not go over well with Blair, who is filled with rage at Dorian upon learning that it was all her idea. In her defense, however, Dorian tries to explain to her niece that she only did what she did to keep her from making yet another mistake by hooking up with Todd.
