EPISODE 71


This episode begins about an hour after the previous one ended.
SCENE ONE
(The scene is the schoolyard at Bay City Elementary School. Dante is walking across the yard. An African-American boy about his age, but a couple of inches taller, comes over to him)
BOY: Hey, Dante! I thought you got suspended.

DANTE: Hi, Jason. I was suspended, but Mrs. Jordan changed her mind.

JASON: Cool.

DANTE: But she said I have to write a composition about better ways to act when someone says something that makes us mad.

(Bonnie enters the schoolyard and wheels herself up to Dante and Jason)
DANTE: Hi, Bonnie.

JASON: Hi, Bonnie.

BONNIE: Hi. I'm glad you're back in school, Dante.

DANTE: Me, too.

(Barry walks over)
BARRY: (sneeringly) So Mrs. Jordan let you come back!

DANTE: That's right.

BARRY: Well, if it were me, I'd rather stay suspended than have a girl stuck up for me.

BONNIE: Yeah, I stuck up for Dante, just like he sticks up for me.

JASON: That's what friends do. They stick up for each other. Maybe you'd know that if you had any friends, Barry.

(Dante and Bonnie nod their heads in agreement. Bell rings)
DANTE: We'd better get inside.
FADE OUT


SCENE TWO
NINETY MINUTES LATER
(The scene shifts to Joe's office at the 2-3. Joe is inside with Josie, Toni, Adams, Johnson, and Edith)

JOE: We are going to find that pornographer and stop him from hacking into any more websites.

EDITH: Because it's your sister in that pornography?

JOE: That's one reason, but it's mostly because what this creep is doing is illegal, immoral, and just plain sick.

TONI: Just one thing. How do we know that the pornographer and the hacker are the same person?

JOSIE: For that matter, how do we know there's only one hacker? Look how many sites have been invaded.

JOE: Good point.

JOHNSON: But even if there is more than one hacker, they're probably working together.

ADAMS: But what if they're not in Bay City, or even Illinois?

TONI: For all we know, there's a network of hackers working all over the country.

JOE: Another good point.

JOSIE: I'll talk to Gary. Maybe he and Cameron could do their own investigating.

EDITH: What's wrong, Josie? Don't you think we're good enough, smart enough, to find the hackers without any help?

JOE: (a bit sternly) It doesn't matter who finds them. What matters is that they are caught and stopped.
FADE OUT



SCENE THREE
A FEW HOURS LATER
(The scene shifts to Grant's office at City Hall. Grant and Judge O'Malley, and are inside, talking)
O'MALLEY: Of course, the hearing tomorrow is a mere formality, but we still need to make it look good.

GRANT: Which is why we're going to let Jamie Frame and his attorney, Cass Winthrop, have their say.

O'MALLEY: And which is also why I'm recusing myself.

GRANT: Why is this the first time I'm hearing about this?

O'MALLEY: I only decided yesterday.

GRANT: And the presiding judge will be?

O'MALLEY: An old friend and classmate of mine who recently moved to Bay City.

GRANT: And this old friend has guaranteed the outcome?

O'MALLEY: Yes, he owes me a favor.
FADE OUT



SCENE FOUR

THAT EVENING

(The scene shifts to the living room of the Cory-Hutchins mansion. Carl and Rachel are on the sofa, talking.)
RACHEL: The custody hearing is tomorrow.

CARL: Oh, I'm sure Jamie will win custody of Kirkland.

RACHEL: Still, I wish he had adopted the boys legally, but he never got around to it.

CARL: That happens all too often.

RACHEL: Yes, it does.

CARL: (changing the subject) Rachel, I'm so glad, so thankful, that you've forgiven me.

RACHEL: Perhaps I should have done that much sooner. After all, you were being blackmailed.

CARL: Yes. To think that I, Carl Andrew Hutchins, could be blackmailed.

RACHEL: Well, that's all over. Lydia is gone now.
FADE OUT


SCENE FIVE
(The scene shifts to Peggy's bedroom. Peggy is on her bed, talking on her cell phone)
PEGGY: So you're on the task force Joe set up to find the hacker? That's just too funny! (pause) Yeah, I agree. It works out perfectly for us.(pause)Oh, of course we have to keep it up.(pause) Absolutely. Our main target is still Josie Sinclair.
FADE OUT


SCENE SIX: CLOSING SCENE
(The scene shifts to Iris's apartment in Chicago. Iris is on the phone)
IRIS: No, that's not really a good idea. (Pause) I know, but you'll be better off waiting awhile. (Pause) It's essential that nobody recognizes you. (Pause) Remember the trouble we went through to plant that story, Lydia.
