SOD:Read Letter Day for Stephanie
Stephanie grapples with the fact that she kept Melanie’s letter from Nathan. She confides in Lexie and Caroline. She is hoping for someone to agree with her and tell her she did the right thing.
Unbeknownst to Stephanie, Melanie and Nathan have a talk and Nathan finds out about the letter. When Stephanie visits Melanie, Melanie rips into her. Melanie asks her why did she what she did. Shelley says “ Stephanie is finally like, ‘I’ve had it. You are married to Phillip. What the heck did you need the letter to Nathan for? How could you do that to Phillp? How could you do that to Nathan?’” She makes Melanie feel guilty and tells her that she has Phillip now and to leave Nathan alone.
Stephanie then warns Melanie. She asks her if she wants Phillip to find out about the letter. Melanie says she doesn’t. So Stephanie says, ‘Then you know to stay away from Nathan.’ Shelley says, “She makes Melanie feel like crap and then Stephanie leaves.”
Shelley points out that Melanie has been the cause of a lot of Stephanie’s heartache and that Stephanie has been through enough drama of her own already. “She was raped, kidnapped, her ex-fiance makes this sex tape with Melanie, the girl she can’t stand. Melanie broke up Stephanie and Max, lets not forget that. She screws up everything in Stephanie’s lfe.” She does feel bad for Melanie, but can’t take it anymore. “The sex tape was the last straw,” says Shelley.
As for Nathan, Shelley says, “It’s not good, but what Stephanie said to make herself feel better is, ‘He shouldn’t know about the letter because it’s only going to hurt him because he can’t have Melanie.’ It’s better for Nathan this way, but really it’s also better for Stephanie.” However, she does call Nathan and tells him they need to talk.
SOW:Nathan Learns About Melanie's Letter
A tender moment between Nathan and Melanie leads to Nathan finding out about the letter that Melanie wrote to him before she married Phillip.
Melanie accuses Nathan of being nice to her because he feels guilty about not reading the letter. Nathan is confused and doesn’t know what she is talking about. Then he thinks back to his trip with Stephanie and remembers that Stephanie had a letter from Melanie at the lodge. Mark says, “At the time, Nathan thought it was none of his business. By the end of his conversation with Melanie, he finally puts two and two together.”
When he realizes the letter was for him, his pager goes off before he gets the chance to ask her what was in it.
While Nathan is gone, Melanie realizes that Stephanie never gave him the letter and she is furious. When Stephanie stops by, she rips into her. Stephanie insists that Nathan didn’t want to hear about her and that he has moved on. She reminds Melanie that she is married to Phillp and she shouldn’t be pining after Nathan. Later on, Nathan runs into Maggie and she realizes something is amiss right away.
Nathan tells Maggie he just found out about the letter that Melanie wrote him before she got married, Maggie doesn’t know anything about it.
Nathan can only speculate that Melanie explained how she feels about him in the letter, and he second guesses his decision not the stop the wedding. “Maggie reminds Nathan that Melanie is married now – that even though this is troubling him, he has to let it go, “ says Mark. “He has to make it stop.”
Nathan listens to what Maggie has to say and tries to make himself realize that he has to give up on Melanie. However, he is still conflicted. “Married or not, feelings are feelings. Nathan’s not convinced there’s nothing he can do. And he needs to start by finding out what this letter business is about.”
Nathan heads back to the hospital to talk to Melanie, but she is sleeping. He then gets a call from Stephanie and she tells him they need to talk.
Nathan of course, realizes that Stephanie deliberately kept the letter from him. “Nathan’s not happy about that at all. Stephanie had no right doing that,” says Mark. She may lose Nathan as a result.
