Danny tries again to explain to an angry Reggie why she slipped up with Josh.

Jamie explains to a startled Babe why it wouldn't be a good idea to let Amanda move back in with them. Reggie and Lily offer Greenlee their condolences, then are pleased to hear her happier news about their new niece or nephew. Ryan is forced to duck out of sight when Erica comes to Zach's office to demand he turn over the surveillance video discs. After doing some research on Kevin, a disgusted Tad asks Di how she ever became entangled with such a sleazeball. Warning Amanda that she's heading for a fall, JR informs the girl he knows how she manufactured her "cardiac" condition. Zach shows a shuddering Erica and Jackson the video of Ryan's violent meltdown after Greenlee revealed her pregnancy. Describing how she saw only the best side of her former beau, Di tells Tad she went to prison for contempt of court because she truly believed in Kevin's innocence. Joe again encourages Jamie to use his obvious gift and make medicine his life's work. Later, however, Palmer puts the kibosh on Jamie's plans by vowing to personally ensure that the young man never works at Pine Valley Hospital. Meanwhile, Babe angrily confronts Amanda for hitting on her "best friend's" lover. As Reggie diplomatically attempts to change the subject, Lily suggests to Greenlee that she might be able to see Ryan's ghost if she tries hard enough.

Monday, August 8, 2005
As a storm brews in Pine Valley, Greenlee panics when she starts bleeding. Kendall calls Dr. Madden who offers to stop by. Though they later read on the Internet that "spotting" is not dangerous, Greg offers to examine Greenlee just to make sure. Afterwards, Greenlee is in terrible pain and has to be rushed to the hospital. Ryan pages through the file on his sister Erin he grabbed from Tad's office and uses the Internet to find a reference to her in Nova Scotia. He's also tormented by memories of Greenlee until he grabs some hair clippers and gives himself a buzz cut. Dani's embarrassed when she walks in on Mimi and Garret kissing. Upset that her mother has to leave on an emergency, Dani's caught offguard when Garret asks what he can do to get her to like him for her mother's sake. When Zach grabs the gun from her before she can shoot him, Julia begs him to put her out of her misery. He claims he has no intention of killing her but she complains that her life in hiding and on the run is such that death is her only alternative. He hands the gun back to her but before he can talk further, Mimi, Derek and her task force officers arrive. Zach insists that Brooke asked him to check up on Wildwind. He overhears Mimi arguing with Derek about the way she's trying to find Julia who skipped out on the federal "babysitter" who was keeping her safe. After the car crash, JR confronts Jamie and accuses him of sabotaging the car brakes. In front of Babe and Dixie, Jamie denies it but JR calls the police and insists that Derek arrest his brother.
Tuesday, August 9, 2005
Julia accuses Zach of knowing who killed her husband Noah but then complains about how the feds ruined their lives by forcing Noah to fit in. Explaining that Noah wanted out, Julia reveals that he went after the man in charge and never came back, learning later that he was dead. Zach insists he can keep her safe and get her life back for her. At the station house Derek explains to Jamie, JR, Dixie, Babe and Tad that tests show Dixie's brake line was not tampered with. Back at the Chandler mansion, Tad suggests that they try a different tactic. Dixie invites JR to defend his brother in a "reverse" debate with Tad. When JR can't speak on Jamie's behalf, Tad takes over and guesses that he's facing what he has always faced in Jamie always being the "good" boy. Meanwhile, Jamie vows to Babe that he must do all he can to protect her from his brother which means he won't go to school. She counters that if he doesn't, she's not going to marry him. Greenlee smiles to Kendall that she just had a dream about having her baby. Kendall stuns her with the revelation that she had a miscarriage and lost the baby. When Jack, Eric and Greg arrive, she angrily blames Greg for what happened, accusing him of giving her something to make her lose her baby. While Kendall reminds her what happened last night, Erica apologizes to Greg who urges her to stay close to her. Greenlee asks Greg if she can get pregnant again with what's left of Ryan's at the lab. Jack candidly tells Erica that he is greatly relieved that Greenlee finally has Ryan out of her life. Lily asks Kendall for advice about her troubles with Sam.
Wednesday, August 10, 2005
Upset to find Zach holding Julia, Kendall demands to know why she's back in town and in her husband's arms. Julia tries to run but Zach insists he'll keep his promise to get her out of this mess. Kendall doesn't let up and calls Julia every name she can think of, but when she tries to call the FBI, Zach grabs her phone and orders her to back off. Kendall blasts her husband for putting them in danger and then reveals that Greenlee suffered a miscarriage. Asked to get her pregnant again with what's left of Ryan's "deposit," Greg explains that in his opinion, her body will miscarry any pregnancy she may attempt with Ryan's sperm. Babe reveals to JR that she's decided not to marry his brother so that he'll go to school. After making her think that he'll give up his vendetta so they can marry, JR gets another laugh by pointing out that according to Phoebe's will, Jamie has to leave her which means he doesn't have to pay for his brother's tuition or give him any money. Ryan finds his sister Erin in Nova Scotia working at a caf? and is thrilled to see she's happy and beautiful, having escaped "the fate of the Lavery kids." He's impressed to see her handle a rude customer by talking her way out of the argument. When he starts to leave, Erin approaches him. Tad tries to convince Dixie that the brake line incident was actually meant for her. When she laughs at the idea, he reminds her that she was picked as a hostage during the bank robbery and almost hit by a car while waiting at a bus stop. While she places a call to someone warning that she'll tell all she knows if he doesn't back off, Tad seeks Zach's help investigating Dixie's recent past.
Thursday, August 11, 2005
Zach arrives at the bus station as Julia approaches her bus. He saves her from being nabbed by a nearby guard and takes her back to Wildwind where he claims he can get her out of the country without anyone knowing. As she talks in desperation, Zach realizes that she came back to Pine Valley to kill whomever killed Noah. Babe advises Krystal that her efforts to get JR to change his mind about giving his brother the money for school have failed. She vows to do whatever is necessary to turn Jamie away from her so he can claim his inheritance. When approached by his sister about a refill at the caf?, Ryan lets slip and calls her "Erin." He's taken aback when she uses a quotation from their father as a reason to move to Nova Scotia but then is disappointed when she slips out the back at the end of her shift. Posing as a radio show DJ, Ryan calls the caf? and tricks the waitress into giving him Erin's home address. There, Erin spots him lurking and calls him "Ryan." When Kendall learns from Greg why Greenlee can't be inseminated again, Jack lays into her for giving her hope she'll one day have Ryan's child. The two argue about what's best for Greenlee. Learning Josh is Erica's new producer and that he saw him bound and gagged at the auto shop, he orders him to testify for him against Babe. In front of JR, Josh refuses and when Erica insists he do as ordered, he warns her that she of all people shouldn't want him on the witness stand. JR insists Erica fire him but when she refuses, he announces he won't be helping her with Kendall anymore. Babe asks Josh for help.
Friday, August 12, 2005
Calling him out from hiding in front of her house, Erin admits she recognized him at the caf? earlier and then stuns Ryan by telling him that he means nothing to her. Blasting him for leaving her at the age of 4, Erin insists Jonathan was her only brother because he stayed with her to face the living hell of growing up with their father and blasts him for killing him. Ryan insists he didn't know how bad their father had become and argues that he thought Jonathan had killed her. Erin admits she was in Atlantic City with Jonathan and urged him to come to Nova Scotia with her but claims he was tormented by the fact that he had disappointed Ryan, a term their father used to manipulate them. After she kicks Ryan out, Erin tells a mystery person hidden away that he's gone. Josh is suspicious when Babe says she wants to have sex with him but before she can explain, Erica enters the office and is outraged to see her. She forces Babe to leave by threatening to fire Josh and afterwards, Josh reminds Erica that what he does with his private life is none of her business. He forces Babe to explain her scheme to have Jamie "catch them in the act." David urges Greenlee to open up to him about what she's feeling. Later, Kendall tells Greenlee she can help her have Ryan's baby. Julia admits to Zach that her only clue about the person who killed Noah is a link to Philadelphia and adds that Noah but wouldn't tell her the man's name because he thought it was too dangerous. Julia admits that this man is now after her. Zach insists he take over the investigation or he'll tell the feds she's in Pine Valley.

After JR departs, Babe takes an unrepentant Amanda to task for making plans to snare Jamie once the engagement is kaput.

EXCLUSIVE: EVA TELLS ALL!
When TVGuide.com spoke to daytime superstar Eva La Rue in June, she'd just wrapped her run as All My Children's Dr. Maria Santos and looked forward to an uncertain future. But what a difference a month makes! As first reported in TV Guide magazine, Diva Eva's joining the cast of CSI: Miami this fall as a series regular. And in this exclusive interview, La Rue reveals how she landed the coveted CSI gig, the truth about her unsuccessful attempt to bring Maria to General Hospital and how she feels about the possibility of AMC recasting her signature soap role.
TVGuide.com: First off, your CSI: Miami character is called Natalia Boa Vista?!
Eva La Rue: We're going from Eva La Rue to Natalia Boa Vista. It's exotic, all right! I said, "What, did some writer go to the local strip club over the weekend?" Anyway, Natalia is a crime lab research scientist who won this huge amount of federal grant money to work on unsolved cases. She's going to be butting heads with the other crime-scene investigators because she's very straightforward and very protective of her territory.
TVGuide.com: You've gone from unemployed soap actress to working on one of prime-time TV's top shows.
La Rue: For 15 years in this business, it's one of those things I hoped to god that I'd get. And yet, the chances are you'll never land this in your career. It couldn't have happened at a more perfect time. I had saved money from AMC, but I'm a single mom in L.A. now. You always wonder if you're ever going to work again, or just fade into oblivion and wonder how you'll make ends meet.
TVGuide.com: Natalia Boa Vista could have been your new persona for go-go dancing!
La Rue: Or doing porn in the Valley! [Laughs heartily] You never know how you'll end up in this business.
TVGuide.com: Tell the truth. Has the CSI: Miami role been in the works since you left AMC?
La Rue: Not at all. CSI came up out of the blue. They wanted to see me in L.A., but I couldn't because I had to shoot my Style Network show, The Modern Girl's Guide to Life, at my house in New Jersey. So I had no time to see them [that week] and I couldn't just blow my show off for an audition I may not even get! So because CSI didn't find anybody else for the part that week, they just put me on tape at the CBS casting office in New York and sent the tape to L.A. I never even met anybody at the show in person! [CSI honcho] Jerry Bruckheimer [cocreator and executive producer], Ann Donahue and CBS president Les Moonves cast me from the tape. Normally you have to audition against 85 other people, then go back and test several times and go through a crazy rigmarole — like I did for three pilots I didn't get this past pilot season. So this was a nice change!
TVGuide.com: So CSI: Miami took you on after ABC took a pass on you going to GH. Must be satisfying, huh?
La Rue: Last year, when I first suggested to ABC that I would love to move Dr. Maria Santos to General Hospital, some bigwigs — whom I won't name — suggested to me that I send my tape to GH to see if they might be interested in me auditioning. [Laughs] Now I don't have a big ego. I really don't. But that was kind of crushing. I was like, "Are you kidding me? I'm sorry, but have they not had any time in the past 12 years to catch me on their own network?"
TVGuide.com: Did you ever send GH the tape?
La Rue: No, I didn't send them a tape. I decided I'd finish AMC and go home to California. I figured I'd see what's out there and then maybe start out in daytime all over again, if it came down to that. Well, I guess I don't have to send my tape over there now!
TVGuide.com: How will you feel if AMC decides to recast Maria?La Rue: I'll desperately miss my family at AMC, and I would definitely do another soap on the West Coast in a heartbeat, but I don't think I would pick up and move my daughter, Kaya, cross-country back to New York again. But it would break my heart if they recast Maria! Oh, my god. They'd probably do it just to spite me. [Laughs] You know, they might because two of Maria's sisters, Anita and Julia, are back on the show now.
TVGuide.com: True...La Rue: But you know what? I've been friends with Sarah Michelle Gellar (ex-Kendall) ever since we started on AMC in the same week back in 1993. She's been a fan since she was a little girl, and she still watches religiously. We watch it together over the phone and gossip about this and that all the time! She loves Alicia Minshew in her role. So maybe now that we live on the same coast, Sarah and I will watch our recasts together on the couch while we eat bonbons.
TVGuide.com: Love it! Finally, what does the CSI job mean for your recurring gig as George Lopez's sitcom sister?La Rue: I don't know! They recently called to ask if I could do an episode about halfway though the fall season. I hope CBS will let me.
