  • Episode Description
  • Michael is astonished when Kimberly pays him a late-night visit. She reveals that she was in a coma for months, and that her mother claimed that she had died to keep Michael away from her. Michael dumps Sydney without explanation. When she brings a police officer to the hospital to have Michael arrested for manslaughter, Kimberly enters the room, prompting Syd to faint. Kimberly is plagued by headaches, and removes a wig in the bathroom to reveal a nasty scar on the side of her head. Amanda fires a model after learning that she is from the agency Models Inc., and is reprimanded by her boss. She reveals that her estranged mother, Hillary Michaels, is the head of the agency. Amanda rejects Hillary's overtures, but Jake later convinces her to give her mother a chance. Alison takes back her decree about not sleeping with Billy until their wedding night. Alison's parents hire an obnoxious wedding planner, but Billy and Alison fire her and decide to marry in the courtyard of the apartment building.moreless

    • Sydney: Can I stay with you for just a little while? Jane: No, Syd, I don't think so. I think I would rather set fire to myself first.

    • Hillary: I felt I would die at the thought of leaving you. Amanda: But you managed to do it anyway, didn't you?

    • Michael: I got married. Kimberly: Really? To whom? Michael: Yeah, uh, I married Sydney. The way it happened, it was complicated, it's kinda hard to explain. It was blackmail, really. (Kimberly slams her locker's door and then smiles.) Kimberly: Doesn't matter why you did it, Michael. You're just going to have to get rid of her. Maybe I didn't make myself clear last night. I've come back to claim what's mine and you're the first thing on my list. (She kisses him.)

    • Bruce: This isn't Woodward Advertising. This is D&D, this is my shop and I make the rules.

    • Alison: Stand by your man, what a load!

    Notes (3)

    • Linda Gray and Cassidy Rae were cast members on the Melrose spin-off Models Inc. They appeared in five episodes of Melrose Place to introduce their characters to the public.

    • "Shape of My Heart" by Sting plays over the establishing shots; and "Dreams" by the Cranberries plays as Amanda's interrupts Sarah's photo shoot.

    • During Amanda's dinner with Hillary, they refer to another Models Inc. character: Amanda's half-brother, David Michaels. David was played by Brian Gaskill, who was dropped less than halfway through that series' brief run.

    Trivia (1)

    • Hillary left Amanda twenty years earlier, when Amanda was twelve, so Amanda must be 32 years old at the time of this episode.
