I agree with you in that I think Gideon erased the video Brett had at his hotel and/or home computer(s) but I think he carries a copy with him.  I too believe he wants to show it to Eva in an attempt to make her remember their "good times" but she will not receive it well.  It is proof that he doesn't know her really.

 

It's possible Sam handed Brett an original copy of the sex tape on a flash drive, the same way Sam handed Gideon a copy on a flash drive. What if Brett had the flash drive in his pocket while he was at Gideon's office and the experts were erasing his computer and tablet? He'd shown up expecting to see Eva. If he had been hoping for a chance to show her the footage of them hanging out together, supposedly on the tape as well, a flash drive would be the easiest thing to carry, even easier than a tablet. Ah well. He's either still got a copy or he doesn't, and if he still does, my bet is a flash drive. Gideon will keep looking and he honestly can tell Eva he tried. What really makes my skin crawl is the thought of Christopher watching that tape.

Maybe I'm nuts, but I'd like to believe that we've heard pretty much the end of Brett. That showdown at their 'picnic' lunch spoke volumes and what need would Eva have to ever see him again? I'm with you Ann. Let's breakout the Krav Maga on Christopher. I can see him stepping out of line with Eva and her not being afraid to put him back in his d*mn place.

 

I hope its true we've that CBY is the last we see of Brett. But I had also hoped EWY was the last we were going to see of Corrine. Didn't happen. I do think the showdown in the park is the last Eva will see of Brett. He killed any lingering friendship feelings she had, and I doubt she'll ever speak to him again, much less meet with him again. I can only hope Gideon's showdown with Corrine at the restaurant is the same deal, that she killed any lingering feelings of friendship and guilt he had over her. When he walked out of the restaurant, it was the final direct contact between the pair. No more meetings and even no more phone calls. I'm crossing my fingers.

 

How about Eva breaking out her Krav Maga for a cat fight with Anne? Catching Anne red-handed hurting Cary, or even Anne stalking her and cornering her?

I agree with you. I think Cary has seen pictures of Anne when he did the research of Dr.L.

Didn't Cary also tell Eva in CBY, that he had quit sleeping around? He tries to take responsibility for making Tat pregnant, and he wants to make his relationship with Trey work. We don't know who the redhead at the gala was, regardless it's far from messing around one evening and having "an affair"?!?

Since I'm on the subject, do you think it is Carys child? I'm hoping that it's not, it will ruin so much for him. I want him to be able to "grow up" and find some stability in his own life first. I want him to feel independent and have a healthy relationship. He experienced so much crap in his life and I wish all the good tings for him. A part of me thinks that Tat is taking advantage of Cary, sort of fame and glory. He lives in a great appartment, celebrity friends and a promising career and perhaps she thinks he's more wealthy than he is. There is something about that pregnancy that don't add up for me... It might be that I REALLY don't like her, she should rather go for Chris Jr!

I think that Tat felt that she was losing Cary to Trey and what better way to keep a man than say I'm pregnant and it's yours Cary !!!

She didn't take control of protection and or birth control she doesn't strike me as faithful, she preens and flaunts herself at Gideon in front of Cary and Eva.

I'd like to see at Gideon and Eva's wedding Trey there with Cary and Tat found out as a liar and possibly not even pregnant . Her mood swings are just down to her general b**** ness

Chris jr gets a bit of bad press but justifiably so. We saw what he did to maggie at the garden party. He wants to promote six ninths at the expense of Eva. A pattern seems to develop he doesn't was to see Gideon happy is that guilt for not speaking up when Hugh was abusing Gideon . Had Hugh tried with him and then went to Gideon .?

Elizabeth Vidal her son tells her the terrible things Hugh did but yet she didn't believe him. But I'm thinking out of the box could it be that Hugh or Dr Lucas have info on Elizabeth that connected her to the financial fraud along with her husband. So they therefore blackmailed her to keep quiet or they'd expose her . Elizabeth unable to take her own life like Her husband had and unable to face the prospect of court cases her reputation splashed across the newspapers and media took the option of not believing her son in the hope that he would just forget it and move on with his life .

Just putting it out there !

If Tat is pregnant I dont think its with Cary; remember Tat went back to Prague for a bit before Cary had his accident; I think when she was there she hooked up with someone and that's who the father is...

I think Elizabeth Vidal was just in denial and really unable to cope with the horrible accusations Gideon was making at the time. Remember she was probably still damaged from the Geoffrey Cross scandal and couldn't deal with another scandal. I dont know why she wouldnt want to lean on her husband...I think he was probably crazy about her and would have done anything to support her but I think Elizabeth thought that maybe Chris would leave her because of what would be the impending scandal with his step son...so sad. But I do not think there was any type of blackmail involved.

Yes Christopher watching the tape is creepy; no wonder Gideon cant sleep; I bet it drives him crazy...especially since he hasnt seen it himself and he can only imagine how bad or not it is. :(. :(

Interesting theory and you can be on to something.

No matter what reason Elizabeth might have, there is no reason big enough for NOT believing your child. As a mother / parent it is your obligation to listen, support and believe (especially in such serious matter). The harm you cause by turning your back to your child will never go away, it scars for life. The behaviour is unforgivable in my opinion (and experience for that matter). This is a topic I'm very comitted to in real life too, and my heart bleeds for G and those people who's experienced the same. In Gideons case he were also mourning over his father in addition to the sexual abuse, poor child. She should have been able to put herself aside, and been there for G, that is what a good mother would have done.

As I've already said she's not a fan of birth control so what's gonna happen but pregnancy at some point !!!!!

Cary surly isn't the father the sooner he find it out the better for him and is well being allowing him to concentrate on himself and his relationship with Trey

I took a peek at Goodreads today. Something that struck me positively is overall, the book is rated 4.04 stars out of five. That's with nearly 11,000 folks on Goodreads rating the book. So high a good rating from that many people proves that the overwhelming number of people who ranked it on Goodreads loved it. Their positive ratings cancel out the one-star ratings by trolls trashing the book in attention-seeking reviews.

 

Some of these negative reviewers make a sport out of trashing multiple authors, and not all of them have actually read the books they review. Fortunately, wildly successful authors have thick skins.

 

Speaking of wildly-successful, this week's New York Times Best Seller shows Captivated By You as number one in paperback and even more remarkable, number one in combined e-book and print fiction. Here's the list: http://www.nytimes.com/best-sellers-books/

I just want to make a general comment about Elizabeth. I feel like her admitting that Gideon was abused would be tantamount to admitting that she on some level failed him, and in her mind that would have made her a bad parent. It's much easier to think your troubled son is lying than to think that you've been blind to something of this magnitude going on in your child's life. Do I agree that it was her fault he was being abused...no. But like Eva stated the minute Elizabeth found out and didn't believe him she became just as guilty.

I hope the fact that Chris. Sr. believing it the minute he found out finally breaks the wall of denial Elizabeth built around herself. It will help Gideon to continue healing if his mother finally does come to believe him and to seek his forgiveness.

I suspect Gideon was the more obvious candidate for abuse, after 5 years of parental happiness his dad is gone from his life after a period of parental unhappiness which they obviously did not hide from him. His mother then re-marries pretty quickly and starts her own life over again (re-booted) whereas Gideon is still the same child abandoned by his dad and seeing his mum changing. Then along comes Christopher fairly early in the new marriage and undoubtedly Elizabeth and Chris snr will have been 'all over' the new baby, they may not have purposely left Gideon out but suddenly he is not the only one. By the time Chris is 5 (I think) Gideon is an angry child and we don't know how that manifested, but Chris jnr is copying him and therapy is sought. Hugh will fairly quickly have sussed out which is the more vulnerable child and an easier prey. But something has triggered off jealousy in Chris jnr, he states in CBY that Gideon would have liked to see him dead - hope we get an explanation of that early in the book. Has Gideon shut out some of his memories of the past so completely and Dr Peterson will draw them out.

The way Chris jnr wants to take everything from Gideon could indicate at some point Gideon took something from Chris jnr that he will not forgive. I sincerely hope it is not Hugh pushing Gideon to do something to Chris during the so called therapy.

I don't think Cary is the father and a paternity test will prove that. Cary said he always used a condom. Condoms are not 100% foolproof, but it looks like Tat was sleeping with other guys too and she wasn't on birth control. I hope Trey will still be around when the test results come, or at least he'll give Cary a second shot once he knows he's not irrevocably tied to Tat for life. I can see Cary staying involved in the child's life as an uncle figure much like he is a brother figure to Eva. My theory is Tat does not know yet who the father is, but because Cary is on the list of guys she slept with, she picked him as a future meal ticket. Cary gets direct financial support from the wealthy Stantons and possibly will get more future support from the insanely rich Crosses. Plus he seems to be the only guy who tolerates her obnoxious behavior.

Lighthouse--thanks for the NYTimes info. And Goodreads. CBY is a wonderful book.

I said before that I don't think Tat is pregnant. She is just too selfish. If she is, she won't have it. She loves her body too much. I have no doubt she's promiscuous. She's a b****. Plain and simple.

The whole Vidal family situation is weird. Ireland is a sweetheart so Lizzie did a good job with her. Chris Jr. is so consumed with jealousy that it is an acid eating him away. Lizzie doesn't scare me anymore.

The 3 people who I think are the scariest are Anne, Deanna, and Graves. Different reasons. Anne is the scariest because she is a psychopathic mess. I wish I knew the story of Graves. There is one. If the case is shelved and G is safe, why does Sylvia keep Graves in the story? As for Deanna, I don't for 1 second think she is handled.

in CBY page28-29 they only thing that Elizabeth said about Brett and Eva is that "she's involved with that singer Brett Kline" So I don't think that she knows about the video (the real one) not the "Golden" one. Won't Christopher be surprised when he goes to look at it again and finds out that it has "vanished"!!

as for Cary being with Anne more than once....hopefully he is not that dumb...he didn't even know the name of the redhead at the dinner when Eva was questioning him about who he was dancing with and then later after the closet....

if Cary didn't know the name of that red head at that gala at the end of EWY it means he doesn't recognized Anne.  or his research on Dr. Lucas wasn't extensive  .. he just said has a wife and children .. but there's not much to research if he doesn't know what he's looking for..  when anne was seen in Evas' apartment building she was also wearing her wig..

I agree with Anne as the scariest  because her motive is revenge  .. not on Deanna though she just had a bruised ego  after Gideon rejected her that one time  .. I think she is an opportunist  so she'll be on Gideon good side for her career development , when she told Gideon about Corinne book that was outside of her contract to cover the wedding.  about Graves, she has extensive  knowledge of Gideon specially the Crossroad foundation ( she recommended it to Eva when Eva asked about a project she can fund)  and in so many ways Graves has  implied her admiration for Gideon  ..

did anyone read The Driven Trilogy  just to make an example  .. when one of Colton friend accused him of getting her pregnant  they made a  dna test to find  out it was his at that early stage of pregnancy . so is that possible ?

I don't think Anne came in the building with Cary and I don't think she was visiting Cary.   I don't know where you read that Raul showed that she was with Cary any place other than the fund raiser.  I do think that Anne knows where Eva lives and she came in the building with a resident she knows to case the place.  Raul might tail Anne but Cary would never hurt Eva that way.

 

As far as Cary cutting himself he is reverting to old habits that he had controlled thanks to Dr. Travis. 

Raul identified and Confirmed that  Anne was the redhead Eva saw during the gala and the same red head that Eva saw  dancing with Cary and he disappeared with for a quickie. Raul said that Anne wasn't on the guest list but came with someone else as his plus one.

Kirsten I thought the professional said they wiped all the copies they could find but there could be another one out there.   I'll have to check when I get home.

i think Brett, Sam and Gideon were the only one that has a hard copy. I dont think Chris Jr has . He must have a copy digitally which either sent by Yamara but i dont think he did because in EWY Gideon traveled to Chicago to asked for court order the moment Deanna told him about the sex tape and he hired IT expert to monitor  the leak of it. But Gideon doesn't know that Brett has it  otherwise he would be  monitored as well ,I assumed he sent copy to Chris Jr because since his involve he need to give authorization as well as Eva to use it, thats why Brett has to convince Eva  because Chris Jr was pressuring him.

I get so excited over all these speculations, can hardly wait to see what's going to happen.... I'm hoping that OWY is twice as big as CBY, and that we will get answers to all (most of all) of our questions. I wish Sylvia could give us some teasers or hints for Christmas ;) that would have been great!!

I agree with you Kirsten.   Sylvia said Elizabeth was at a point in her life that she couldn't take on anymore bad and, therefore, refused to accept it.  It was made easier to deny the truth by the fact that Dr. Terry said Gideon didn't show any signs of being abused.

 

I still wonder who the second doctor that examined Gideon was.   He was only mentioned that one time as far as I remember.

I agree he didn't recognize her at first but I'm sure Cary and Eva had a discussion off page.  He knew she was upset and he would protect her.

The discussion are fun.  I don't know how long OWY is going to be but my hope is the questions are answered in more than one paragraph.  It would be a shame to come this far and not get resolution.

To add to this: As far as I can tell, nowhere does it say for sure Cary has seen a photo of Anne Lucas, has had her name mentioned to him. Certainly, he hasn't been warned she is a threat.

 

It was Eva on her own at her office the morning after the run-in with Terry Lucas at the fundraiser who Googled him. she guessed correctly there must have been a woman involved for the two men to hate each other so much. Eva was worried about brunettes (yah think!) and was relieved to find Terry was married and his wife has red hair. That's early in RIY. Later toward the end of RIY when Eva decided to go after Terry, she asked Cary to look him up as a pediatrician. Just Terry. There's barely any mention in that chapter of what Cary found about Terry and no mention of Anne. It was Gideon who told Eva in EWT that Anne is a shrink. Toward the end of CBY Gideon warned Eva about her, but I can't find any evidence anyone has warned Cary yet.
