Two deaths, a fire, and a toe curling kiss turn things upside down in Llanview this week. Get ready for all the juicy spoilers for the week of August 30th.
Blair/Eli: Blair is hesitant about marrying Eli, but eventually goes through with the ceremony. After the wedding, Kelly tells Blair everything she needs to know about her new husband. Blair confronts Eli about the new information and wonders if she will be his next casualty. Blair pulls out a gun and points it in Eli's direction. Eli tries to plead his innocence with Blair but she isn't having it. At the end of his rope, Eli confesses everything to Blair and drives home the point that he really loves her. Eli concludes his confession by asking Blair to go on the run with him. Blair can't believe her ears and is ready to hand him over to the police. Eli can't let Blair do that and they begin to wrestle for the gun. Suddenly, the gun goes off and Eli falls to the ground.
Blair begins to freak out and goes over to check on Eli. However, an overturned oil lamp that has set some curtains on fire distracts her. She tries her hardest to put the fire out but the place is going up fast. Out of nowhere, John shows up and takes Blair to safety. By this time, the fire is out of control and John can't go back inside the building to rescue Eli. The fire is extinguished as Blair and John head back to the police station. Eli's charred body makes it's way there and Blair comes unglued when she learns it is his body. Is Eli really dead or is this part of his plan?
John/Ross/Kelly/Rex: John, Kelly, and Rex discover that Ross is alive. Around the same time, John gets a call from Tahiti about Eli's whereabouts. The police have him in custody. John immediately tells Bo, who sends him to Tahiti to bring Eli and Blair back to Llanview. While John is on his way to Tahiti, Rex and Kelly grow closer.
John gets to the Tahiti police station only to discover that the police have Ross in custody not Eli. John can't deal with Ross right now and leaves to find Eli and Blair. Ross talks his way out of jail. Will John be able to get his hands on Eli?
