Episode Synopsis (for the hearing or otherwise impaired)

Johnny confronts Arbella over her decision to accept Rock's proposal: marry Rock or have her childhood home, Kinloch Manor, wrested from her and sold to pay back the money Johnny had given her a year before to support her drug habit, which had left the Mathers almost bankrupt. Johnny swears he will find a way to stop his brother's dastardly plan. Arbella begs him not to as the stress it would put her under could harm her unborn child and his mother, Catherine, would be heartbroken to see her family ripped apart by contention. Finally growing weary of Johnny's obstinate avowal Arbella orders him to leave. Alone she bemoans her fate, questioning why she allowed him to believe the baby was his, and reminiscing about Blaine Hart, a doctor she had met at a drugs rehabilitation center.

She had first seen his name on a patient register and was curious to see the center's only other valium addict. When the met, sparks had flown and the attraction between them was as inevitable as it was powerful.

But disaster struck when they found a stash of valium hidden by a previous patient. Unable to help themselves, they had taken it and, breaking their curfew and out of the center's grounds, they had spent a passionate night of love in each others arms, ultimately conceiving a child. When Arbella woke the next morning, hung over and bewildered, Blaine had already left.

She had not seen him until six months later when he opened his own private practice in Abingdon. She had avoided him, unable to bear what his reaction to her and the child might be.

Sick at heart, Arbella visits Catherine, and worries that her plan – marrying Rock to keep Johnny away, a plan Rock only agreed to on the condition she would stay away from the rest of his family, and their money, to conserve the tenuous comfort and security they enjoyed once again – might not work. She is shocked as Catherine reveals that Johnny is insane, something no one in Abingdon ever suspected despite his disturbing obsession with Arbella. Rock enters the scene and is enraged to see Arbella and his mother together. After ensuring he is still willing to go through with the bogus wedding, Arbella beats a hasty retreat.

At the wedding, Johnny interrupts before Arbella can finish saying her vows, and she collapses. Pandemonium ensues.

Six hours later, the staff at the hospital where the fainting bride was taken are worried at her comatose state, but none more so than Doctor Blaine Hart. Unable to sit by idly while the woman he shared so much with at the center lies unconscious, he enters her room and is relieved and warmed that she awakes to the sound of his voice. When he explains the situation, Arbella is offended that after six months absence all he offers her is dry impersonal words when the last thing she remembers him saying is her name in breathless rapture. Blaine, ashamed by his actions that night and his failure to protect Arbella from himself and leading her into temptation, cruelly dismisses her protests but reveals he has no memory of how far their simmering mutual attraction had gone. Suddenly remembering her pregnancy, Arbella demands to know its condition, and is told not only is it perfectly healthy, but Johnny is in the building, outside that very room! In a last desperate attempt to escape his clutches, Arbella convinces Blaine to inform everyone she is dead, by telling him of their child.

On a beautiful beach in Fiji, Arbella and Blaine rest in the flight from Johnny, who they have managed to evade for three months. Blaine tells Arbella of the house he has found, a beautiful villa on an island which is perfection in miniature, boasting its own orchard. Finally unable to resist his ever growing love, he proposes, and she whole-heartedly accepts.

A week later, tucked away on their private island, Arbella gave birth to a beautiful baby girl with her father's eyes and her mother's gorgeous hair and complexion. The overjoyed couple named her Callista Louanna Marie Kenneth-Hart.

I hope that's cleared up some of the confusion. I'd apologise but I had so much fun writing it. And considering I was writing entirely in cliches, I needed something to hold interest. But enough of me, I talk too much. What do you think?
