Barnett is sitting with Brooke doing the interview, but it seems like he is on
autopilot. Yes, he is answering her questions, but he feels more like he is looking
back on his life as a movie. He still is not sure why he came here to Pine
Valley. What does he really want to accomplish? If people knew who he really
was, would they be so happy to meet him? He knows he left that part of his life
a long time ago and has tried to make up for his mistakes as best as he can. He
just isn't sure that revealing himself after all this time is really worth the
risk to himself and his current life. From what he has read, she has done very
well for herself without knowing about him. What would be the point now, he
Adam is home sitting in the parlor reading the Bulletin. He can't believe it
has been five years since he walked away from the day-to-day business of running
Chandler Enterprises. He has to admit between that and remarrying Brooke, life
has been pretty good. He has time for his family, he goes fishing with Stuart,
and at the end of the day he has an incredible woman to go home to.
Brooke walks in the front door and asks if anyone is home. Adam calls out
he is in the parlor. Brooke walks in, and Adam's face just lights up.
"How was your day?" Adam asks her.
Brooke tells him it was long but fruitful as she got the first part of the
Barnett interview finished.
Adam asks her what is he like. Brooke tells Adam that he is very handsome and
charming. He politely answered all of her questions both relating to business
and some personal issues, but she felt like there was a part of him not really
there. She can't put her finger on it, but she feels there is more to Theodore
Barnett than what she saw.
Barnett, David, and Cara are sitting enjoying their dessert when Cara's cell
phone rings. She excuses herself from the table, telling David it is her mom on
While the men are waiting for Cara to return, Barnett wants to know more
about how David's Institute began five years ago.
Barnett tells David he is fascinated that he not only brought back to life
Dixie Martin but Stuart Chandler as well. He tells David that people must have
really made him into a hero after doing that.
David tells Barnett that he has a lot to make up for in this town with things
he has done to people over the years. Bringing those two lives back to their
families was just a start.
David tells Barnett that right before people knew about his work with Stuart
and Dixie, he had another miracle.
Barnett asks David, "What was it?"
David tells him that one of his colleagues, who, as it turns out, he never got
along with, had lost their vision. It was the result of an infection she received
while treating a patient here at the hospital. She was on an experimental drug
therapy, but then found out she was pregnant. She did not want to compromise the
baby's health, so she stopped the treatment and became blind.
Barnett tells David that was some choice to have to make, her eyesight or her
baby. David agrees that it was a selfless act and, because of that, he went to
her with an offer to help.
Without anyone knowing he was treating her, he tried one of his experimental
drugs on her. It took months but finally her sight was restored.
Barnett tells David this doctor must be very grateful to you for restoring
her eyesight. David tells Barnett that yes she was grateful, but more important
after years of animosity between them, they have finally become friends and have
respect for each other. In fact, it is because of her faith in him that many
people in Pine Valley have grudgingly given him a second chance.
Barnett asks David who this doctor is. David tells him, "Her name is Dr.
Angie Hubbard, Chief of Staff at PV Hospital.
In fact, David tells Barnett, Dr. Hubbard is hosting a Charity Ball Saturday
night. He and Cara are attending, and if he will still be in Pine Valley, he is
welcome to come as their guest.
Barnett looks at David and tells him that he would very much like to attend
and looks forward to meeting Dr. Hubbard.
Dixie waits patiently at the nurses' station for a patient's file. Five years
ago, when David brought her "back to life," she was so happy just to be alive and
back with Tad and their young daughter Kate. Now Kate is older and Dixie finds
she had too much time on her hands, so she resumed her job at PVH as a Patient
"Here is the file you asked for," said Nurse Hopper, handing Dixie the folder.
"Thank you, I will get it back to you right after I am done with Mrs. Gould."
Dixie turns suddenly and gasps as she bumps right into Cara.
Dixie still finds it hard to believe that Cara has been married to David
Hayward for almost 5 years. She not only gave him a son, named Leo after David's
late brother, but she seems to be the only woman who cannot only handle David
but also bring out the decent side in him.
When Dixie first came "back to life" through David's intervention, Cara was
married to her husband Tad. They had married so Tad could save Cara from being
deported and possibly killed. Before being married to Tad, she had been married
to Tad's brother, Jake. However, when Dixie returned, Cara made no
trouble for them and gave Tad a quick divorce allowing Tad, Dixie, and Kate to
reunite as a family.
"Oh, I am so sorry, Cara," Dixie says. "I should have looked where I was
"Not a problem, Dixie," says Cara. "Are you here to see a patient?"
"Yes," says Dixie. "How are things going at the Institute?"
Cara tells Dixie that things are moving along very well, and they are making
Dixie asks Cara if she and David planning on attending the Charity Ball
Cara tells Dixie that they will be there and may possibly bring a guest. An
investor that David is trying to get involved in the Institute's research.
Dixie tells Cara that she looks forward to seeing her then.
