A Closer Look: Old Habits Are Hard to Break
Téa’s arrival puts a damper on Todd and Blair’s family breakfast with the kids. Adding fuel to the fire, Téa plants a juicy kiss on Todd’s lips, in full view of Blair. To level the playing field, Blair decides to hire a muscular swimming instructor to teach Sam how to stay afloat on Tuesday, July 14. During the boy’s swim lesson, Blair flirts with the guy in an attempt to make Todd jealous. Later, after accusing one another of being jealous of the other (duh!), Todd and Blair give in to their pent up sexual lust, which Téa interrupts on Wednesday, July 15. A disbelieving Téa rips Todd up one side and down the other. Trying to patronize her, Todd attempts to downplay the situation. However, Téa refuses to listen to what he has to say. Considering it poetic justice, Blair sits back and enjoys the show, doing little to bail out Todd. As Téa storms off, Todd decides that he is not letting her go that easily. On Friday, July 17, the revelation that Blair hit the sheets with Todd leaves Dorian nauseous. Spouting wise words like a Chinese fortune cookie, Dorian states that, while Blair no longer wants Todd, she also doesn’t want any other woman to have him either. At the same time, Téa packs heat as she vents her frustrations at a picture of the slimeball that is Todd Manning at the firing range. She is soon joined by John, however both are miserable. Marty and John try to pick up where they left off the night of Cole’s arrest, and are drawn into a kiss on Tuesday, July 14. However, they are unable to go further when Marty’s memories of her time with Todd kill the mood. Pulling her into a friendly hug, John assures Marty that he can wait until she is ready to be intimate with him again. Marty confronts Todd, blaming him for sabotaging her relationships with men by making her afraid to open up her heart.
