DAVID’S GAMBIT

Everybody wants to figure out what David is up to. Kendall is certain there’s an explanation for “Erica” spending the night with David. Jake vents to Jesse about David taking over the hospital and muses that there must be away to kill him and get away with it. Jesse says there are better ways to handle the David problem and asks Jake to keep his eyes and ears open. Ryan tells Jesse about Erica and David spending the night together and they discuss how David is treating Angie’s blindness. David offers Madison some tips on dealing with Greenlee, but she wonders if he’s just using her to get under Greenlee’s skin. Greenlee speculates that “Erica” and David are having an affair. Bianca is shocked to learn that “Erica” spent the night with David and is frustrated that her mother keeps pushing Jackson away. When Angie busts Ryan snooping in David’s office, he admits he is trying to get the goods on David’s business with Erica. Angie agrees to help. David returns to his room to find a scantily clad Jane, looking for love. When he claims he has business to attend to, Jane feels rejected and accuses him of using her. David covers and plays the “I’m falling for you” line and Jane buys it hook line and sinker. Just as David kisses Jane, Jackson shows up and almost catches them. Jackson wants to know how David persuaded “Erica” to work with him all night, and David says he thought she went home. After Jackson leaves, Jane comes out of hiding and David sends her to find Jackson and make up.

JR confesses to Marissa that Bianca has been helping him woo her. Bianca and her date run into JR and Marissa and Bianca’s date notices the connection between Marissa and Bianca. Bianca’s date cuts their evening short, and Bianca and Marissa come to an agreement that for their friendship’s sake, they need to keep their distance for a spell. Meanwhile, Amanda’s symptoms grow more worrisome. Jake takes her to the hospital where Cara treats her. Amanda’s relief at learning she is not pregnant is short-lived when Cara reveals that her symptoms could be the result of HPV or cervical cancer.
