New York is clean when it’s in L.A.!
At Mrs. Quinn’s, Christy tells her that he saw Danny and about the cash box. Turns out, Bridget stole the cash box. She tells her dad that she wanted to give it to Danny so he could eat better. But I like to think she stole it so that she could take a bus to sunny Florida, where she’d never have to chop down Christmas trees or make corn on the cob and chicken for her dad. Ever again! She tells her dad that she saw Danny at the skating rink. They share a Hallmark moment.
Meanwhile, Danny has reached the castle, but he can’t get in through the window! So he climbs on top of the icy roof to get away from the cops and Boss’s Son. That sounds like a great plan, Danny. Of course, he slips and falls off over the edge, into the night, and one of the cops says, “Come on! There’s water on the other side!” Cops get thirsty, I guess. Meanwhile (again) at Mrs. Quinn’s, Mrs. Quinn is up making hot cocoa or something when she hears a knock on the door. Officer Tough Voice enters and tells Christy that Danny fell off the roof of Belvedere Castle. And into an icy pond about 40 feet below. And then he was hit by a bus. And then he was shot in the leg by a hunter. And then he was mauled by a tiger that escaped from the Bronx Zoo. Okay, so maybe not, but he did fall through the ice and no one knows if he got out or not.
Meanwhile (yet again), Catherine wakes up at her office. Where’s Danny? she wonders. Boss’s Son rushes in and brings in a camera that was stolen from the office (Danny had it with him, I guess, but Hallmark didn’t care enough to show us) and asks if Catherine knew about it. Most of the plot points are wrapped up in 15 seconds: Boss’s Son asks if Catherine knows the boy who took it. She says it was Danny and that the camera wasn’t really stolen. She also says that Danny took the picture of the mystery “Silver Bells” that everyone in “NYC” is wondering about (where are they? Who cares?).
Boss Man walks in right at this moment and is all, “Really?” Boss’s Son says Danny may be dead because he fell 40 feet off Belvedere Castle into a frozen pond, after which he got alcohol poisoning and was stabbed in a bar fight before partially eaten by wild boars. And then he choked on an egg salad sandwich. There’s a knock on the door, and they open it to find Danny. Okay, it looks like an intern poured a bottle of Aquafina on him backstage and said, “Yeah, that looks like he fell through a frozen pond, right?” Dude is almost bone dry.
At Mrs. Quinn’s, the phone rings. She and Christy freeze and stare at the phone. (Carol: “It’s a Hallmark movie, so every ringing phone requires a dramatic pause by everyone on camera.”) It’s Catherine, she tells Christy that Danny fell 40 feet off Belvedere Castle into a frozen pond before being attacked by a roving street gang and crashing his car into an oncoming train. So Christy and Catherine end up in the completely realistically empty NYC ER, where they fight about Danny and the secret Catherine kept from him. No, not the one about her lesbian past, silly! The one about Danny.
