Note: These are just the excerpts that deal with the
plot line involving Richard's character. Some of them are quite...um...steamy.
Makes me wish I had those scenes on tape! I resisted the temptation to
add my own comments.[sigh].And these descriptions are taken directly from
the magazine. I am *not* responsible for grammar and punctuation (whoever
writes this ... really needs a beta!) When I was forced to alter text for
any reason, I enclosed my changes in [brackets].
Another World (Chad Rollo)
January 27, 1987:
M.J. is Followed
M.J. decides to take Cheryl home from the party, pack
an overnight bad and meet Adam at his place. But in the parking lot, she
sees someone following her. She suspects it is Vince, but when she calls
out, "Pops," there is no response. After she drops Cheryl off, M.J. heads
to her car alone. Suddenly, a hand covers her mouth. "You're still my best
baby," the man says menacingly....
February 10, 1987:
As M.J. struggles against her attacker, she realizes it is Chad!
"You're still my best baby," he whispers playfully. But M.J. is terrified
and leans on the car horn. Seconds later, Cheryl comes to her rescue, beating
with her fists until he runs off. When Adam and Scott arrive, M.J. insists
that she didn't see the man who accosted her. When Cheryl says that she
might be able to identify the guy, M.J. panics. "Just hold me, Adam," she
cries. But as he takes her in his arms, he has no idea what is really upsetting
M.J. Later, Adam asks her to look at mug shots. When she reviews them half-heartedly
he asks if she knew her attacker. Of course not, M.J. lies.
Chad Moves to Bay City
M.J. is terrified when she learned that Chad has "relocated."
Not only is he living in Bay City, he's been hired as the talent coordinator
at Tops. Chad's first order of business is to sign up
a headliner for the club. Jamie suspects that M.J. knows the newcomer even
though she won't admit it. Several casual remarks made by Chad convince
Jamie that M.J. is hiding something about her past.
Against her wishes, M.J. goes to Tops for dinner with Adam. Just
as she feared, there is a run-in with Chad. Adam is jealous, but
Chad tells a shaken M.J. that Adam isn't even competition....
M.J. Keeps Mum
Adam wants M.J. to meet his parents. It's the next step if they're
going to think of a future together, he encourages her. But, to his surprise,
M.J. refuses to go. Afraid to tell him that she thinks Chad might
show up and ruin everything, M.J. offers another weak excuse. Adam is hurt
and angry. "What's your problem?" he demands, but M.J. still isn't able
to tell him about Chad....
February 24, 1987:
Chad Haunts M.J.
M.J.'s been assigned to the vice squad. She's an undercover investigator
looking into the prostitution ring which is flourishing in Bay City - despite
the unsolved murders of two local hookers. When Chad learns of M.J.'s
new assignment, he tries to strike a bargain with her: He'll keep quiet
about her past if she'll help him keep the cops at bay. M.J. refuses, but
that doesn't stop Chad from pressuring her.
Adam notices that M.J.'s been jumpy. Is it just that she's nervous
about meeting his parents? He assures her that they'll love her - she's
everything they've ever wanted for him: sweet, unspoiled, et cetera. M.J.
isn't so sure they'll she her the way Adam does. Secretly, she's worried.
Suppose Adam's parents catch on to the fact that she was a whore? She can't
let Adam down, either. The first thing she decides to do is resign from
the vice squad, then Chad won't be able to blackmail her...she hopes.

surprises her with a visit. He repeats his threats to expose her past unless
M.J. helps him. Luckily, Adam arrives and whisks her away. She's still

Is M.J. Weakening?
When one of Chad's other girls is picked up by the cops, Rollo

kid's plight - after all, M.J. went through an arrest herself, Chad
points out. Still trying to be a good cop, Ms. McKinnon refuses, but Chad
sees she's torn. She can't forget their past either, Chad whispers
as he takes M.J. in his arms.

home party for Vince.
