GIRLDADDY’S

TO ES­CAPE HER FA­THER’S VICE-LIKE GRIP, Olivia GOES ALONG WITH HIS WICKED PLANS BUT THE MOVE COULD COST Jake HIS LIFE

Soap World - - US PRIMETIME - SW

On Jake and Vanessa’s wed­ding day, the evil Eli Pope made it crys­tal clear to Olivia that if she stopped the nup­tials, he would mer­ci­lessly and fa­tally cut Jake’s throat. That fright­en­ing dec­la­ra­tion has Olivia rat­tled enough to con­tinue abid­ing by her fa­ther’s wicked plans but pri­vately she breaks down in Huck’s arms, wor­ried about the next step her fa­ther will force her to take.

That ma­noeu­vre is made very clear when Eli (Joe Mor­ton) mys­te­ri­ously forces Olivia (Kerry Wash­ing­ton) into sab­o­tag­ing Edi­son Davis’s (Norm Lewis) pres­i­den­tial cam­paign. She does the job but quickly re­alises that her fa­ther has other plans for her when she dis­cov­ers that the black­mail ma­te­rial he had on her in­volves the abor­tion that her can­di­date Mel­lie (Bel­lamy Young) had years ago. She’s for­mu­lat­ing a way out of Eli’s con­trol when he strikes again.

Forc­ing Jake (Scott Fo­ley) to stand by and al­low Vanessa’s (Joelle Carter) fa­ther to per­ish from a heart at­tack (Vanessa’s in­her­i­tance will help fi­nance Eli’s plans), Eli has Edi­son de­liver a chill­ing mes­sage to Olivia. He wants Jake added to Mel­lie’s pres­i­den­tial cam­paign as her pro­posed vice-pres­i­dent.

It’s the last straw for Olivia. She does as re­quested but bursts into her fa­ther’s house to de­clare that she wants Jake to leave with her im­me­di­ately. The mis­ery has to end. Eli scoffs at his daugh­ter’s bravado, in­stead snatch­ing Jake by the neck and press­ing a gun to his head, coldly an­nounc­ing that he’s go­ing to put a bul­let in Jake’s brain!

Eli (Joe Mor­ton) presses a gun to the head of Jake (Scott Fo­ley) as Olivia (Kerry Wash­ing­ton) looks on in shock.
