ACAPULCO BAY’S FINAL EPISODE
Andrew (Andres) tries to persuade Tony to let the police just arrest Max instead of confronting him at the mansion but Tony is adamant, determined to even the score. He left the apartment, followed by Charles (Pablo), to visit his baby at the hospital. Maura gets back to the house but Carla isn’t home. Instead she finds Frank (Rod) there, who asked her where she’s been. Bill called to ask if she’d found Tony, Rod takes the phone from her and hears Bill’s voice, asking for his money. He handed the phone back to her and pulls out a gun, ordering her to persuade him to come to her own and she timidly obeys.
At the hospital’s NICU, Tony smiled down at his daughter Baby Kathreen, who was sleeping peacefully in the incubator, her tiny eyelids moving. Peter and Martin walk into a bar and Peter noticed the clerk who had conducted the false marriage. They talk; Peter told him what had been happening to his family and said he needed some sort of vindication. At the Stockdale mansion, James answered the phone, spoke rudely and hung up. Rachel asked who it was; he replied it was Luis looking for Max- and has been doing so all day. She asked after Marnie and her father and was told he’d gone out with Martin as usual. The clerk agreed to help Peter after some persuasion, as he too had a daughter.
Maura pleaded with Frank, she had no idea where Tony was but he doesn’t believe her. Bill showed up and Frank shot him from behind. He shouted, where was Tony? Screaming, she said she didn’t know, he escaped from the rented villa. Carla entered unexpectedly and Frank forced her to join her sister. She’d however left the door open and Robert rushed in and wrestled the gun from Frank, in the struggle Maura is shot on the leg. Max eavesdropped Clark’s conversation with Andrew over the phone; he heard Clark telling him the clerk has been found and the hotel he was staying! Max rushed away. Tony returns from the hospital and Andrew is amazed to see him holding an automatic. After Tony left for the house, Andrew finally told Clark that Tony WAS ALIVE AND ON HIS WAY HOME! Clark, of course, is shocked…
Max phoned Luis and gave him the address of the hotel, ordering him to kill the clerk. However, Luis can’t leave Marnie as she knew they were holding Danny. Max decided to do the job himself, but asked him to deal with Marnie and Danny once and for all. On his way out, he bumps into Vicky and coldly walked away from her. Rachel opened her door and is very surprised to find Vicky crying. She led her into the room and asked what was wrong but Vicky kept on crying, holding on to Rachel’s hand.
Luis loads his gun, telling Marnie he had no choice in the matter. Marnie began acting lovingly towards him; kissing him and urged him to run off with her, away from Max’s influence. Very pleased at her change of heart, he moved to the next room to find his passport and some money, leaving the gun on the table. Marnie immediately grabbed it and made for the door, just as Luis came out to ask her something. Furious at being tricked, he moved towards her but she fired, shooting him in the thigh. She ran down to the basement to get Danny and they fled. At the hotel, the clerk handed Peter the written & signed confession i.e the affidavit.
At the house, Clark informed Camille that her brother was alive and on his way home. Filled with joy, she ran out and sure enough Tony had already arrived, talking to James. Tony didn’t look very enthusiastic to see her, (maybe he still hadn’t forgiven her for her role in trying to break up his marriage) but he allowed her to hug him and shook hands with Clark. He was told Max wasn’t around and Rachel was in their room.
Max shocked the clerk, demanding to know what Peter wanted and the man was forced to tell him. Max shot him, using a silencer.
Vicky gasped on seeing Tony and hugged him, sobbing. He hugged her back but gently shushed her, he wanted to surprise Rachel.
