But there still is the problem of those murder charges. Kendall, teaming up with the world superpower known as Erica Kane, decides to focus all her energies on getting Annie to take the fall. After all, lots of clues pop up this month that seem to indicate Annie may be the guilty party. But the real key to the mystery? Little Emma, who was in the mansion (along with half of Pine Valley) the night that Stuart died. Emma knows who the real killer is … Who is the lucky guy or gal she'll finger?
Too bad Kendall doesn't just talk to Randi, who could be the blackmail leverage to get D.A. North to back off. After all, he used to be her john. North wants Randi back something bad, and even tries to force her to come to Washington D.C. with him. This is NOT a case of the happy (ex-) hooker goes to Washington, because Randi ends up in a struggle with North .. who gets whacked over the head. And, later, ends up dead. But don't think all is as it seems here (is it ever?). What we can tell you is that Jesse -- believing his daughter-in-law committed murder (of a public official, natch) -- helps cover up the crime. And the two decide to keep it from Angie and Frankie. Uh-oh.
The baby drama that is Amanda Dillon's life doth bubble over next month. With Liza successfully faking labor and giving birth to "her" baby (actually Amanda and David's), everyone thinks they are free and clear. But Amanda demands that Jake tell her where her baby is (four blocks away, Amanda) -- and David starts to become convinced that there's something not entirely copasetic with Liza's baby. There's no "Oh, this story is going to take forever to play out" here ... By the end of month, who knows what -- and who's scamming whom -- gets totally thrown on its face. And even more people in the town get involved.
All this, PLUS: Annie targets ANOTHER victim; Marissa finds herself in the middle between Scott and JR; Liza takes on Kendall as a client (uh-oh!); and Stuart, despite being dead, manages to be on the show.
