BUCHANAN FAMILY TRAGEDIES MOUNT

Clint pleads with Natalie and Jessica to make amends and recalls happier times with Viki. He also urges Joey to work things out with Kelly, just as David and Dorian and Kelly are learning that Clint will not receive a heart transplant. As time seems to be running out, Rex comes to a surprising turnabout and agrees to allow Clint to receive Gigi’s heart, in return for the Buchanan fortune. Rex explains to Gigi that he is going to use his newly acquired power to seek revenge against the Mannings. While Clint is being prepared for surgery, Viki encourages Jessica not to make any rash decisions about Brody, leading Brody and Jessica to have a heartfelt conversation. Meanwhile things are shaking at the Buchanan mansion. Aubrey shows up and asks Cutter to let her stay. Their argument disturbs Vimal and when he chastises the angry pair, Aubrey blurts out that Rama is not pregnant. Just as Vimal and Aubrey manage to convince Cutter to allow them to stay at the mansion, Nigel arrives with movers and the news that the deed Clint signed was a fake, and all current occupants are evicted. Brody is on the verge of listening to the tape found at the scene of Jack’s crime, but is first interrupted by Ford, and then Natalie. Brody and Natalie agree that they want to be together and create a family with Liam, although they know that news will not be well received by a lot of people. Natalie wants John to hear the news from her and leaves to tell him. Left alone, Brody hears Marty’s confession that Liam is John’s son. After a conversation with Blair, John is considering reconciling with Natalie, but Natalie tells him of the decision she and Brody have reached. Brody arrives to tell Natalie the truth about Liam, but pulls back when he finds her with John. What Brody doesn’t know is that a drunken Todd has confided everything to Vimal, who comes to Rodi’s intending to spill the truth to John.
