This edit contains all of the complete episodes (no commercials) for the Black & White Ball. I also included some - Edited - scenes prior to the start of the ball of Nik planning the ball, his irrational behavior, ball invitations go out and the town talks about going to the ball. I included the 11 ball episodes, then the few action packed episodes after Nik has found Emily dead. I continued through the action at GH, Dillon's return to PC, the aftermath of Em's death, the two episodes on the day of Emily's funeral including her memorial. Since there was room remaining on the dvd #4, I decided to include some of the Emily ghost visitation scenes into early January. I also included Georgie's murder and Spinelli and Mac finding her. I included a few more post-Ball scenes into 2008 showing the text message killer then attacking Sam and Alexis, the DNA showing Coop is the killer and then Maxie finding him dead. The 2008 scenes are very highly - Edited - to just touch on a few highlights of the storyline to finish off the last dvd and is not a complete edit for the post-ball text message killer storyline.

He tells her to look at his family, because he's just starting to take after their traits. Luke walks in and having just heard from Scott about his deal with Lulu, he is furious. He wants to know why Nikolas hasn't done more to protect Lulu and why he wasn't told she was sleeping with Logan. Emily tries to get Luke to leave, but he is persistent. Nikolas sends Emily away, and he manages to keep his cool while Luke rants and raves. When Luke leaves, Nikolas uncurls his hand which is now bloody from squeezing a letter opener.

Carly gets an invitation for the Black and White Ball that Nikolas and Emily are having at Wyndemere on Halloween. Just as she is reading the invitation she gets a text message on her cell phone and looks at it. The text message says "I'll see you at the ball." Carly looks around, feeling as if she is being watched.
Sam goes to see Nikolas at Wyndemere. It is obvious that Nikolas has very slim control over his emotions at the moment. She tells him she came by to clear the air with him and get him to listen to her side of things concerning his brother and Elizabeth. Nikolas warns her to leave him alone right now because it isn't a good time for him. Sam doesn't listen and starts to tell him that she cares about Lucky, not Elizabeth and that she isn't to blame for what happened to Lucky and Elizabeth's marriage. Nikolas loses control again and grabs Sam by the arms and starts shaking her hard. He calls her all kinds of filthy names and tells her she is the worst thing to happen to his brother right now.

Johnny goes to meet with his dad, who asks about the blonde girl. Johnny lies and says it was just some girl whose car broke down. Anthony knows he's lying, so Johnny tries another lie and gives his father a fake name. He says she lives in the city and that he dumped her. When Johnny leaves, a guard stops him and says that he can not leave on Trevor's orders. Johnny doesn't care and starts to leave anyway. He needs to warn someone about something. The guard asks if he is talking about Lulu Spencer. Johnny slams him against a wall and threatens him to never mention her name again when there's a possibility his father can hear them. Meanwhile, Anthony's nurse comes in with dinner, but Anthony is no where to be found.
Nikolas wakes up from his "anger coma" just as he's pushing Sam over the ledge. He pulls her back up and asks her what was going on. He explains that he has no memory of what happened and that the doctors are trying to diagnose what is wrong with him so he can be treated. She remembers Alexis saying something about Nikolas throwing a glass at her in a rage. She suggests that maybe now is not the best time to be having a ball. Nikolas says that he has been planning this for months for Emily and the endowment. He can't let them down. Emily shows up and when Sam leaves, Nikolas tells her that he almost killed his cousin. She reassures him that everything will be alright and they will find out what is wrong with him. He's afraid that it is too late. He just attacked his own family. Who's next?

When Jax leaves, Sonny shows up to tell her he is going to Puerto Rico for a while. He notices she is distracted, but she tells him she is just trying to decide what to wear to the ball. He warns her that if she is working on a plan, she needs to drop it. After he leaves, Diane comes over at Carly's request. She wants to know the difference between murder and self-defense? Diane tells her she's going to charge triple for this answer. During their discussion, Diane tries to get her to understand the risk she will be taking. Carly doesn't think she will die, Diane points out that no one every does! Diane asks her to consider what her death would do to her children, Sonny, Jax, Jason, her family. Diane then points out the reality of a murder trial. Carly believes that Leticia's killer is the one texting her and won't let it go. When Diane mentions that her best friend is a hired killer and perhaps she should let Jason take care of this sitatuion, Carly realizes that if she can get Jason to take her to the ball, she will be safe and she won't need to carry a gun.
October 29, 2007 - Edited - Spinelli knows Jason's aversion to all social events but begs him to reconsider attending the ball. Spinelli doesn't have a date and he wants to go to the ball.

She will help him raise Spencer and their own children. They will have a long and happy life together. He puts the ring on her finger and they kiss.
At the pier, Jason approaches Spinelli and asks him what's wrong. Spinelli is very freaked out and thinks he can't do anything without Jason's assistance and guidance. Jason reassures him that everything will be fine. He can't go to the ball, because he's got other stuff going on right now. Nadine walks down the steps towards the pier and compliments Spinelli by telling him he looks dashing. That's all Spinelli needed to boost his confidence. Spinelli introduces Jason and Nadine before Nadine and Spinelli head towards the launch.
While Alexis waits for the launch, Jerry walks over and tells her she looks lovely. She warns him not to crash the party, and he says he wishes he could go if he were invited.

Jerry says that the wind is shifting. This night could get a little messy.

She leaves, and Lucky comes over to congratulate Nikolas. Outside, Liz watches as Nikolas and Emily begin the first dance. Lucky comes outside and the two reminisce from the past parties at Wyndemere. The memory of the two of them dancing in jeans and tennis shoes helped both of them through some tough times.

Neither one of them regret one moment they had together, though. Lucky asks Liz to dance, for old time's sake. Sam watches them from the shadows.

Later, Sam apologizes to Nikolas for what happened earlier with Elizabeth and fills him in on what he did when he yelled at Emily for yelling at Lucky. Nikolas doesn't remember this episode like he doesn't remember any of his other psychotic episodes and thinks he is getting worse.

Nikolas apologizes to Elizabeth and Emily later on after Emily fixes Elizabeth's dress and hair and tells her about how Nikolas has gotten some tests done at the hospital to find out about what is causing his violent episodes.

Meanwhile, Diane is in Sonny's office talking on the phone when Jason finds her. He asks her if she heard from Sonny at all. She tells him she hasn't but seems very much on edge. She ends up spilling her guts about her conversation with Carly even though it goes against attorney-client privilege in most cases. She tells him that Carly got some more text-messages which led her to believe that Leticia's killer is going to be at the ball and wants to meet her there.

Kate is very thankful that he's there and says she's right where she wants to be when he talks about the other people there for the ball. Kate reminds him that while she doesn't need to know about his business, it would have been nice if he would have called her to let her know he was ok.

Patrick says it's not safe to do too much, though. Robin mentions that it's not looking good for Ric. He's lost a lot of blood. She faints into Patrick's arms, while Leyla watches from behind. Trevor tells Johnny that this is his entire fault. If he had gone home, his father wouldn't be here doing this. Johnny says that it is Trevor's fault. He should have had Anthony locked up years ago, but he knew he would lose his father. Trevor says he thought he could manage Anthony. Johnny says there's no way to manage his father. Johnny tries to walk away, but Logan comes up and approaches him for taking Lulu away. Johnny says he just danced with her, that's all. Logan says he grabbed her and then tried to kill Ric for his father. Back in the ballroom, Spinelli tells Georgie that he should have done something. Jason would have saved the day.

One sword is missing.
Kate thinks she sees a boat trying to make it to the island. Sonny doesn't care about that right now, though. He wants to know how he can protect her when his life has already touched her. She tells him that what has happened had nothing to do with him. He apologizes that he can't protect her. She doesn't want him to shut her out of his life. He warns her that being a part of his life could be rough. She tells him that she's a scrapper and she's strong. He knows that, but he has seen what his life has done to women. There are different rules for his world. He knows what Trevor is capable of, because he's done some of the same stuff. Kate says that he makes her happy, and she can't remember the last person that's made her happy.

Cooper tells Georgie that he will go help her find Maxie. They look in several rooms but can't find her. Logan catches up to them and can't believe they are that worried about her. He tells Georgie that Maxie is a drama queen and is probably hoping for them to go look for her. Georgie gets very upset and attacks Logan with her fists and pummels him for saying nasty things about her sister when she could be in danger from Anthony Zacchara.

Jason shows up in the room they are in and wonders why they are arguing when they should be staying with the others in a safe room. Lulu wants to help Johnny find his father and thinks she can be bait for him since Anthony wanted to kill her because he thought she was Johnny's new girlfriend. Jason agrees with Johnny that Lulu should not make herself a target for Anthony but thinks that Johnny is going after his father to protect him and so they aren't exactly on the same side. Johnny tells Jason that he isn't going after his father to protect him but to kill him himself. Jason grabs Lulu's arm as she starts to argue with him about making her own choices and Johnny reluctantly follows them. Meanwhile, Elizabeth, Paige, and Spinelli find one of Zacchara's men laying wounded on the ground outside the barn and drag his body inside. Elizabeth and Paige try to tend to his gunshot wounds and ask him who he is and why he is there. The man manages to say one word, "Zacchara" before he dies. Paige ends up talking about her sister Jolene, and how she ended up being someone she wouldn't recognize now since she was such a good and kind sister to her. Elizabeth explains about her own life experiences lately and how you can find yourself doing things you never thought you would do and end up being more surprised about yourself than anyone else.
Soon after that Jason shows up at the barn with Lulu and Johnny. He puts Spinelli in charge of protecting Lulu and everyone and to make sure Lulu stays there and doesn't try to leave. They tell Jason about the dead gunmen and what he said. Elizabeth hugs Jason when she sees him with Lulu. Jason hugs her back but then pulls away to take care of business.

He feels really bad about it but tells her while she is laying unconscious that he had no choice but to keep her from getting hurt. He brings her to another room and sits her down in a chair. Lulu wakes up but doesn't remember much about what happened. She thinks she got hit in the head with a tree branch and Spinelli goes along with it so he doesn't have to tell her what he really did to knock her out. Lulu tells him she is sleepy and looks like she is going to go back to sleep but Spinelli tells her it isn't a good idea for her to go to sleep if she has a concussion and promises to stay there and take good care of her. She smiles at him and tells him he is a great friend to her and she wouldn't know what she would do without him. Later, Paige makes a comment to Elizabeth when they are alone about Jason being her "guy" who is a professional who she is sure can keep them safe. Elizabeth corrects her about Jason being her guy and that what she saw isn't what she thinks and asks her to act like she never saw her hug Jason earlier.

Kate disagrees with her about Ric deserving to die and tells her that this is Sonny's decision not hers. Sonny finally speaks up and tells them that he needs to see Ric for himself before he will make a decision. Carly can't believe that Sonny is even thinking about helping save Ric and tells him he is a fool if he does. She storms off angry and Sonny almost goes after her.

The detective comes back and tells them that Maxie was strangled with a phone cord and that the killer is almost certainly the same one that killed Emily. He asks Jason again what Maxie, Leticia, Emily and Carly have in common. Jason goes to Johnny's house and tries to get information. He tells Johnny about the attempted strangulation of Maxie. Jason asks Johnny for a description of the killer, since Johnny interrupted the attempted strangulation of Carly. Johnny says that the strangler was medium height, dressed in black and had brown hair. Before they can talk further, Lucky bursts in and tells Johnny that he is taking him in for questioning in the assault on Maxie Jones.
December 17, 2007 - Edited - Georgie is about to call the police when she recognizes the person following her and smiles a greeting instead. Spinelli interrupts Jason as he is searching Coop's room above Kelly's, looking for evidence that Coop is the text message killer. Spinelli is worried that Jason will kill Coop. Jason says he will not act without evidence. He sends Spinelli away and tells him to stay away from Kelly's and Coop. Spinelli passes through the park and finds Georgie dead on the steps with a phone cord wrapped around her neck. He calls the police. Detective Harper arrives on the scene and questions Spinelli, who saw nothing and provides no information. Mac is distraught and outraged when he finds Georgie dead. He is grief-stricken and blames Spinelli. Detective Harper tries to convince him that Spinelli, who is too dazed to mention Georgie's suspicions of Coop, is innocent but Mac wants him finger-printed and DNA evidence taken.
December 28, 2007 - Edited - Nikolas sits at home on the couch and Emily appears. He is relieved to see her. She wasn't in Switzerland with him, but he doesn't think he would have been able to hide that from the doctors. Lulu and Lucky show up and ask if the doctors found what was wrong with him. Nikolas explains that they ran tests but nothing has been discovered yet. The rages haven't been as bad since Emily's funeral. He feels her presence and it calms him. Nikolas tells Lucky about Harper trying to arrest him. He wants Lucky to find Emily's killer at any cost, even if he was the true killer. He tells them they all know that people can hurt the people they love even in ways they thought they couldn't. As if on cue, Liz shows up. She was curious what the doctor's found. She knows she should have called since she's not family anymore. Emily (only Nikolas can hear her) says yes, she is still family. Lulu tells her that she is still family. Stuff happens, things change, but not what the four of them meant to each other. They had an amazing bond. Emily would have wanted them to keep that. Nikolas tells her she doesn't know how right she is, and he hugs Liz. Lucky tells Liz that Lulu is right. A lot has gone on between them, but maybe they can get together for coffee and talk. Alexis and Sam show up at Wyndemere, anxious to find out about the doctors in Switzerland. Emily asks Nikolas why he's not telling everyone that the doctor's found a tumor. Nikolas finally reveals to everyone the truth. It's an inoperable because it's too risky to attempt surgery. The doctor's think it's genetic, so Nikolas advises Alexis to get herself and the girls tested.
December 31, 2007 - Edited - Nikolas does not leave Wyndemere on New Year's Eve, but not because he is still grief stricken as everyone thinks, but because he is kept company by the physical embodiment of hi beloved Emily, who is dead, but still physically present with him. He does not question why or how Emily can be with him. He is just glad that he can still hold her and touch her. He dances with her and kisses her passionately as the New Year begins.
January 2, 2008 - Edited - At Wyndemere, Nicholas and Emily discuss his tumor and what will happen. He is no longer having violent rages and he wonders if he has exchanged "mad for madness." He tells Emily that he no longer cares about who or what she is. He is just glad that she is there. Lulu drops by to check on him. They talk. He glances at Emily, who Lulu cannot see. Emily makes some comments, but Nichols does not acknowledge her in front of Lulu, who convinces him to go out for a walk. As Lulu walks ahead, he reaches back and surreptitiously takes Emily's hand.
January 23, 2008 - Edited - At the PCPD, Maxie wants a moment with Mac, but he is distracted. Scott is there and Mac has just acknowledged to him that the lab results on the killer's DNA test (which apparently were not backed up or copied) have disappeared from his desk. Both suspect that the killer is a PCPD officer. On the docks, the text message killer tries to strangle a struggling Alexis. Before he can finish, Sam appears and interferes. She screams and attacks him. Together they fight him off. Mike hears her and comes to their aid, but the killer escapes. Alexis gets a message on her phone from the killer who threatens to kill her first, then her "bitch daughter." Back at the station, Coop is adjusting his tie when he walks in and finds Maxie still waiting to talk to Mac. Before she can talk to him, Mac and Scott want to talk to Coop. They ask about the test results. He tells them that he did not give them directly to Mac because Mac had asked not to be disturbed while he talked to Felicia. Instead, he left them in Mac's "In" basket before going out on a call. When asked if he saw the results, he tells a suspicious Mac and Scott that he did not. In a hidden corner outside Kelly's, we see the missing lab results. The DNA is a match for Coop, who is holding the paperwork. He puts it away and takes out his cell phone.
January 25, 2007 - Edited - Maxie finds Coop dead in his room
January 31, 2008 - Edited - Jason shows up at his office to find Nikolas there waiting for him. Nikolas shows him the newspaper and asks Jason if he thinks Cooper Barrett was the killer. Jason doesn't give him an answer but explains that Alexis made a statement to the press, and the police had enough evidence pointing to Cooper. Nikolas tries to get more information from Jason but Max enters the office and tells Jason he needs to talk to him right away. Nikolas thinks he is in the way and plans to leave his office, but Jason asks him to stay and wait for him. Emily appears to Nikolas and suggests that they go over what happened that night and thinks they should act out what he said to her right before he blacked out and can't remember. Nikolas doesn't want to do it at first but she persuades him that it might trigger a memory for him that could be helpful. Nikolas and Emily reenact what happened and Nikolas seems to have remembered something. He yells at her like he did that night. Jason comes running over to him and asks him what is going on. Nikolas tells him that he was trying to go over in his head what happened that night but couldn't remember anything about who may have killed Emily. He doesn't think he could have hurt her or that she could have hurt him by hitting him but somehow his blood ended up on her dress and mask. He asks Jason if he is 100% sure that Cooper was the killer. Jason tells him that he isn't that sure. Nikolas asks Jason if he thinks Nikolas could have killed her. Jason tells Nikolas that he doesn't think Nikolas killed her either. Nikolas tells Jason that he can't actually place Cooper in the room that night, either, and thinks they have a problem if Cooper isn't the killer.
February 1, 2008 - Edited - Sam stands on the docks and gets a text message. She realizes it is from the text message killer and immediately calls Lucky. She tries to explain that she got a text message, but he doesn't want to hear it. He says he's not interested in seeing some text message that she had a friend send to her. He's done with her. He hangs up when Lulu comes in. Sam gets another text message. It says, "I see you. Do you see me?" She starts to run off the docks, but she runs into the killer. They fight and Sam manages to get away. She runs to the nearest house, but no one is home. The text message killer comes after her again, but Sam manages to fight him off again. He rolls down the steps and lies motionless. Sam runs over to him and starts to take his mask off, but he wakes up, and she tries to escape again. Sam fights off the "Text Message Killer," but runs into the path of an oncoming car, which does not stop after hitting her.
