Looks like Adam has another awful secret! After the plane crash, Adam met with the TWA (is that the name?) people, 3 of them in a secret location. They had a lot to discuss.
"And another thing," one of them said "Maria Santos is alive."
Adam demanded to know where Maria was and why they were keeping this a secret. They said that Maria was very badly injured and was mentally scarred. She was suffering from post traumatic stress disorder, and intense paranoia. The guy explained that a secret, right wing, government agency wanted to use Maria for spying, and other uses for their own purposes. He refused to give Adam the name of the group. The SRWGA Maria from TWA. TWA would only do this if they received money. Money would have to come from Chandler. Chandler would give TWA millions in exchange for the airline blotting out any involvement Chandler ever had in the TWA corporation and the crash. Adam asked a bunch of questions, most of which the three refused to answer. Adam refused to cooperate until he saw Maria. One of the men withdrew some photographs from a safe and showed him. They were pictures of Maria, badly burned in airplane reckage, pictures of Maria in a bed, pictures of Maria talking to a secret doctor. Adam could tell that these photos were very recent. The men assured him that all they wanted was money. Chandler finally complied. They gave him instructions on where and when to give them the huge sum of cash. They also told him that if he turned them in or backed out of the agreement at the last minuete that they would kill Hayley. They were damned serious! Adam said he understood. Convinced, one of the three deposited the Maria photos into the fireplace, destroying them within seconds. Two days later Chandler had given them the huge sum of cash. His conscience was not at ease though. He kept thinking of Maria and the endless torture she was enduring. Adam kept this horrible secret for nearly five years.

Tad immediatley phones Adrian and arranges for him to fly to Germany that day. He tells him that he is the only one that can help him and that it is a matter of life and death. Adrian finally agrees. Tad is terrified of his bizarre, new discovery...

*This is similar to Radioacative Maria. I would love for either plot to occur.
A recasted Kendall (an excellent actress if we can find one.) returns to PV. She dumped Del a long time ago, and she is returning to PV to get a job from Erica so she can get back on her feet again. Erica reluctantly agrees. She gives Kendall a job at Enchantment. Kendall is determined to show Erica that she is a good person. Kendall is looking for love. She goes on a few dates with Ryan but is not interested in him romantically.
Erica and David have been fighting lately about various things. David is doubting his engagement to her and is considering backing out. He keeps quiet about his feelings.
Kendall and David begin to notice each other. They become good friends. One night while Erica is away they can no longer deny their feelings for each other and they make love. Weeks later David and Kendall agree that they can't keep this away from Erica. They plan to tell her. How will she react? Will she go crazy? The secret couple get more and more anxious seeing Erica plan the extravegent wedding. How will they tell her?
Erica is totally shocked at Kendall and David's confession. She lunges at Kendall and smacks David who defends her. She disowns the both of them and fires Kendall from Enchantment.
Vanessa weezles her way into this and gives the tabloids an earfull of Erica's turmoil. Erica vows to seek revenge on David and Kendall.
David and Kendall marry 9 months later with a quiet wedding of only ten guests. They take a two week honeymoon in Paris and return to PV.
Erica joins forces with Adam and they try to bring down Dr. Dave. Both of them try to get Hayward fired from PV hospital. They try to prove that David assisted in the illegal practice of doctor assisted suicide. Their evidence is very thin and Erica and Adam fail to get David fired.
Nearly a year of feuding and revenge seeking continues with Erica. It is now currently January. Pine Valley is experiencing a horrible snowstorm. Erica is returning from the airport after a visit to see Bianca in Seattle. She is five minuetes away from home when she sees an overturned car on the side of the road, in the pouring snow. Erica pulls to the side of the road and jumps out of the car.
She is shocked to see David lying in the snow, with a gushing wound in his stomach. David crawls towards Erica in a pool of his blood. He reaches out for her help. He is certain she will do something. Erica watches him with a blank stare on her face. She does absolutely nothing to help him. An hour later David collapses, dead. Erica hears a hoard of ambulances behind her. A dozen EMT's run out. Erica tells them she just pulled over and found him. They roll of Dr. Dave and declare him dead. They place a green blanket over his cold corpse.
All of a sudden an EMT from almost a hundred feet away is heard shouting at the top of his lungs. Erica and three dozen other men run over to see what is happening. It's Kendall, lying unconscious in the snow! The EMT's and firemen run about and put Kendall in an ambulance within a couple of mins. Erica follows them to the hospital, in a state of utter shock.
After a week of treatment and the best care, Erica has a heart to heart with Dr. Joe. Erica's daughter is brain dead. And a chance for recovery is 20%. Even if Kendall were to get well she would be nothing but a vegetable. At the persistance of Dr. Joe and countless other doctors, Erica agrees to take Kendall off of life support.
A few seconds later, Jake comes running out of Kendall's room with his arms flailing in the air. "You can't do that! She's pregnant...!"
When Alligators Attack
I am not secretive about the fact that I hate Jake and Mateo. My fantasy is to have the two of them go canoeing in a swamp (they're so stupid!) and have two alligators overturn the canoe. The alligators slowly eat the two ridiculous men!
