October in Llanview starts with a huge bombshell dropping right on Todd Manning's head, and the stunning revelations just keep coming. Poor Todd thinks it's shocking enough when he finds out that Tea and Ross are still legally married. He's furious at Tea and may not forgive her. Who knows how hard he'll flip his lid when he finds out that Tea has a second, way juicier secret. And the worse news for Tea is that BLAIR finds out. Tea is absolutely desperate to keep Blair's mouth shut. How far will she go? Far enough that we'll see a repeat of a most classic Tea/Blair confrontation from 1998. Then, it ended with Blair shoving Tea out a second-story window. In 2009, watch as the tables are finally turned. Yes! Blair goes out the window. And that's still only the beginning! And don't think we've heard the last of Ross either. He might just have feelings for Blair, and he's just as rabid to get to the bottom of whatever Tea's hiding. And his interest isn't just about Blair -- he may find he's got a lot at stake with Tea's secret.
Speaking of characters who are hiding something, you're going to be shocked at just how much Jared had been hiding during this whole Nash/stalker business. Starting with when he's found next to a dead body. John definitely suspects Jared has something to do with all of this, and the more Natalie finds out, the more suspicious she gets as well. And, of course, Natalie admits this openly to John -- Hello, have you met her? Stubborn Natalie just fights harder for Jared, even though he seems guilty as hell. The storyline goes from zero to sixty so quick, you guys. Jared comes clean about everything to Natalie, and that bombshell isn't even the most shocking moment. Somebody dies, and Jessica picks up the phone only to hear Nash's voice on the other end. WTH? Seriously -- share your theories below at what you think is really going on here, because we'd love to hear them.
In the mayoral race, Dorian is taking no prisoners, which should come as no surprise, but her "beat Viki at all cost" tactics are certainly eye-opening. It can never be said that Dorian Lord isn't on the cutting edge of all things, and in this case, politics is no different. And what could be more hot-button in politics than gay marriage? Dorian decides to strategically plant herself firmly on the "pro" side of the debate. And since Dorian does nothing halfheartedly, look for her to firm up her commitment by declaring her engagement -- to a woman. In fact, Dorian decides to stage a mass gay wedding in the middle of Llanview for optimum publicity. It's like the Reverend Moon thing on acid. Look for the gay marriage craze to sweep up Fish, Kyle, and Kyle's hot boyfriend Nick.
