IT HAPPENED TODAY…

After making love for the first time, Marissa tells Bianca she feels great about what happened between them.

JR tells Liza he got the custody hearing moved up so Tad and Dixie can’t testify against him. Liza is not pleased when she realizes JR tried to bribe the judge. Keeping his part of the deal, JR tries to make inroads between Colby and Liza. Liza tells JR his plan to bribe the judge backfired. When Colby realizes JR spiked his coffee she calls him a selfish drunk. JR says he’s giving up booze. Marissa gets a call from Caleb alerting her to the judge deciding to give her full custody of AJ in light of JR’s attempt to bribe the court. Her happiness is tempered by her concern for JR and his continued self-destruction.

Cara and David talk about the past and the present. Cara hides when Tad arrives at ConFusion looking for her. David and Tad exchange barbs. David takes Cara to his room and tells her she can stay there. Griffin is upset when Cara doesn’t answer his call. Cara calls back and tells Griffin that she is still in Pine Valley but needs some time alone. David explains his love-hate relationship with Pine Valley. Cara tells David that she likes him. The two end up sharing a passionate kiss.

Zach and Kendall’s conversation returns at the tale end. The pair discuss the private conversation they just had and we see that Kendall is clearly not happy with what apparently has to be done. Outside the room, a concerned Griffin asks Kendall if everything is alright. Kendall makes up an excuse for the reason she’s unsettled and later when Greenlee expresses her concern. When Griffin goes to check on Zach, he asks Griffin if he’s in love with Kendall. Griffin tells him it’s not relevant because Zach is back and Kendall loves him. Zach declares to Ryan, Greenlee and Kendall that his full allegiance is to David afterall he saved his life and brought him back to his family.
