After viewing photos
of Will's body at the crime scene, Brooke realized
that he was in different clothes than when she shot
him. James found a bullet hole in a wall in
Will's study and surmised that Brooke missed Will
when she fired the gun. He went on to presume
that someone else came into the house after Brooke
left and fired the fatal shot. Brandon
presented their case to the judge, who refused to
drop charges against Brooke without another suspect.
Miranda manipulated Baines into letting her hear
the tape of the witness hotline that wrongly accused
Stormy of the murder. Michael was taken into
foster care until DNA tests came back proving he
was Brooke's. Renee's adopted daughter, Sierra,
showed up at her door, making Renee extremely nervous.
Gunplay at the courthouse sent Heather into
hysterics, puzzling Stormy as to her reaction.

navy blazer, khaki pants and a striped blue shirt. He adjusted the lapels on his jacket and
looked up just as a vase went whooshing past his head.

porcelain shatter all over the staircase landing, he quickly stood up and
turned out to the foyer.

the entryway. This time the make-shift weapon exploded into
jagged pieces of glass at Brett’s feet.
“You’ve been lying this whole time!”
Brett exclaimed and darted down the staircase, using his briefcase as a shield
for her next assault. “What the hell's
gotten into you?”
she picked up another vase, decided she liked the markings, and returned it to
the table. For a second Brett thought he
was in the clear, but just as quickly Miranda grabbed another and threw it
across the room at him. The porcelain
remains skipped across the tile floor and sounded like pebbles hitting the

immediately knew that he’d been caught.
Miranda had been suspicious for the past few days and it was only a
matter of time before she got proof. He
cursed himself for being so stupid, but decided to continue his charade.
“I set Stormy up?” he asked
defensively. “Janet Harper was the one
who saw him at Thomerson’s house! I
didn’t twist his arm and force him to go there that night, waving a gun around
and getting himself knocked out in the process!”
but you wanted to make damn sure that he was a suspect!” Miranda berated
him. “Jordan gave the videotape to Heather
and then you found it. You put it in
Stormy’s closet and then you phoned in that phony tip.”

have to give you credit for trying to disguise your voice, but even I know my
own husband when I hear him. Not only
that, but the call was made from a lot right next to Sunset Studios. Just how
dumb do you think I am?”
felt light in the head. He swayed on his
feet, distraught by how far his wife had gone to prove he was guilty of setting
up Stormy. “Listen to me, Babe. I have to make you understand why I did it.”
shrieked. “You almost got my brother
sent to prison! What possible reason
could you have for doing that? You two
have been at each other’s throats ever since he came back from his tour with
Lauren last year. Why is that? What happened with the two of you, anyway?”
That was a bag of worms
he definitely didn’t want to open again.
If Lauren stayed the topic of discussion for too long, Miranda may start
to believe Stormy’s claim that he’d blackmailed her into sleeping with him.
“He’s jealous of me,
Miranda!” Brett said, running his fingers through his hair and exhaling
deeply. “He’s jealous because your
father has more trust in me than in
his own son! You saw how he almost ruined the chances of getting the pipeline
injunction stopped when he slept with Senator Fallmont’s wife! Your father was furious! And of course Stormy blamed me for that.”
leveled her eyes on him, walking closer and balling her fists at her
sides. “And I wonder how my father found
out about that,” she said smugly, studying his face as she waited for any
indication of guilt to surface. “Could
it be that was yet another one of your sabotage efforts?”
Brett shook his
head. “Of course not. I had nothing to do with that.” The truth was he did blab to James about Stormy and Samantha. The opportunity was just too perfect to pass
up. And it did discredit Stormy quite a bit in his father’s eyes, at least
where the studio was concerned.
her head, Miranda turned and walked across the room. “Well I don’t believe you,” she said, then
turned to glare menacingly at him. “I
don’t believe anything you tell me anymore.”
She walked toward him again.
“Like the sick way you used Heather to steal from Will Thomerson. You didn’t even think about what that would
do to her, did you? And what was all that
about you wanting to have a baby? Was
that just another way of cementing yourself into this family?”

“Is that it?”
“No! I love you!

despair. “I would never put a child

the battle. He knew it.
shook her head with contempt, nauseous about how disillusioned she’d been with
her husband. “You just can’t stop lying,
can you?” she asked, then leveled her eyes firmly on him. “I don’t even know who you are. Before you came here you were Rick Shively
the con artist. Well I’m not so sure
that Brett Armstrong is any better.”
that, she turned and stormed up the stairs to her room. Brett stood behind, devastated by the turn of
events. Miranda knew everything he’d
done to discredit Stormy, and in her eyes it was the worst kind of betrayal
because he lied to her face about it.

Miranda walked out of her bedroom at the Blackthorne mansion and proceeded down
the hall to the staircase. She stopped mid-step,

“I’ve never seen a speck of dirt or an unwashed dish in this house in my

Sierra leaned back in her chair and twirled a curly lock of black hair around

Sierra demanded. “I don’t understand

I’ll go up and look in on him,” she said unenthusiastically. “Are you coming?’
“I’ll be up in a

After she’d disappeared upstairs, he took a deep breath and dug his
hands into his pockets. “Ethan, I have
to talk to you.”
“What is it?”
Leading him down the
hall to the conservatory, Stormy turned and sighed with uncertainty. “When you were working for Will last summer

“Blackouts? None that I can think of. They could have started when she went to

James and Brooke for so long, now poor Brooke caged like an animal in jail for
killing him. Finally, the shootout at
the courthouse the other day had sent her completely over the edge. All she could hear since that day was the
sound of the gunshot echoing over and over in her mind. Why couldn’t she stop thinking about it?
Flashes of Will’s

more images slowly came to light and she began remembering. She hit him on the chest, battering him with
her fists and crying out in anger over what he’d done to her. She remembered Miranda trying to pull her off

reached through the bars and held her hand tightly. “You’ll be home soon too, Brooke. I promise.
We’re going to find whoever was responsible for killing Will. Now that we know it wasn’t you it’s only a

time, but we’re going to find them.”

Brooke asked in surprise. “How?”

walked into his office at Sunset Studio
and slammed the door shut behind him. He
walked to the desk and leaned over, groaning furiously over his fight with
Miranda. The fact that she was on to him
was nobody’s fault but his own, and he hated when he slipped up. By risking his marriage he also risked
everything he’d worked so hard for. His
position at Sunset Studios, his favor
with James, not to mention a career in the movie business.

Heather. Was there anyone who might have
made a comment to Will while you were out together? Anything that sounded remotely like an

quickly left the office and stopped in the hallway, closing her eyes tightly
when another image flashed before her eyes.
Another piece of one of the blackouts, she decided. But this one was darker…more ominous. She saw a flash of light and then a dark

She felt like she was on the outside seeing

closed her eyes, fighting the flashes of light that now came at her like
fireworks. She whimpered softly,
recalling everything all at once.
Suddenly, she let out a soft shriek and then grew very quiet. The entire room stopped and looked at her
curiously. She felt like she was watching a ghost as she flashed back
to that horrible night....
Heather got up from her bed and made her way
to the closet. She stepped inside,
opening the hidden doorway and making her way through the long dark tunnel, the
bottom of her nightgown scraping against the dusty floor. A few minutes later she saw the staircase
come into view. She pushed the door
slowly open and emerged into Will’s parlor room, immediately spotting him
kneeling down a few feet away.
Her eyes traveled to the floor where
a gun lay abandoned. Quietly, she picked
it up and pulled the lever.
Will stood up and turned around with
Heather lifted the gun from the floor and pointing it
directly at him.
“What are you doing?” he asked,
moving across the room in search of something to defend himself with. “Put that down. You’re going to kill someone.”
The last thing he saw was a blinding
flash of light. White hot, searing pain
coursed through his entire body and he slowly slumped to the floor, his eyes
open wide before slowly closing forever.
The last thing he saw was Heather standing above with an expressionless
