Tate blubbered, Theresa pleaded his case, and Alex called EJ’s credibility into question.
EJ insisted to Tate that even if the drugs weren’t his, he was still responsible for Holly’s plight as he failed to dial 911 and get her immediate help. And hiding the drugs she OD on didn’t help matters either.
Rafe demanded to speak with EJ in private and attempted to ascertain just why EJ was on a crusade against a “poor kid.”
Does it make him feel good? Does it lift his spirits? And what if the roles were reversed and someone was trying to railroad Johnny in a similar matter?
Despite the Commish’s best efforts, EJ wouldn’t be dissuaded. In fact, he derived pleasure from watching cowering Tate being dragged away from his parents.
Change Of Address
Meanwhile, Sarah enjoyed waking up to the smells from Xander’s cooking, even if she didn’t appreciate his pronouncement of the word scone.
Soon the two were debating the pros and cons of Sarah moving herself and Victoria Margaret into Xander’s spare room as well as the “10-ton elephant in the room” that is the kiss they shared the previous night.
At first, Sarah argued they’d merely gotten caught up in the fireworks and the celebratory feeling.
Then the two admitted they’d been wanting something like that to happen for some time now. And yes, the kiss was amazing.
But, Sarah was scared. Scared of going too fast and falling madly in love and regretting it. Xander promises it’ll all work itself out.
They will just have to agree to respect each other’s boundaries moving forward. Agreed? Agreed!
Goodbye Is The Hardest Word
Opposite, Tripp returned home to Wendy who gushed excitedly about their upcoming sojourn to Hong Kong. Yeah…about that.
Tripp is no longer going. He’s got that sinking feeling that something’s up with his mother — namely that she’s peddling the drugs that landed Holly in a coma.
