She refuses to comment and calls him Lois Lane. Leo claims to be more like Clark Kent and then relents and says he’s Lois Lane.

He wants to tell Talia’s story — he can relate to being abused by his father, physically and mentally by his mother, “the queen consort of all forms of emotional blackmail.

If you ask me or my therapist, the woman should wear a crown.” Jada appreciates his empathy but has to find Colin and Mayor Carver. She asks him not to use what they talked about in his column. He tries, but just can’t write it in once she’s gone. 

Gwen arrives and he asks how it went with Zaddy Von Leuschner, if she got lost in his eyes. She says better. She’s getting an exclusive. Leo’s thrilled. She calls it Gwennie magic and he bemoans having no scoops he can use.

gwen comforts leo about men

But he left before the breakfast buffet. He goes for men who are married, straight, or using him for his American citizenship. Maybe Diana was right. Gwen feels similarly.

Her mama convinced her that her dad didn’t care if she lived or died which is why she turned out this way. Her mom convinced her the only way she could get anyone to love her was to trick them.

That’s why she went after her sister, Abby, and her husband. Leo comforts Gwen.

He wants to marry her so they can have a bridal registry. “With  our taste, we could make a killing.” She reminds him nobody likes them. He puts on Body and Soul and asks her not to mention his name to Dimitri.

Harris gets a job offer from Kate.

Kate asks Harris to get rid of Megan Hathaway. She’d pay him to kidnap her, after what she did to her. Harris only did that stuff because he was brainwashed. She knows.

That’s the point, Megan did that to him. Harris asks her why Roman won’t kill Megan. Kate says he won’t do it and he’s her only hope. 

roman and kate talk to harris about colin
