Marlena and Eddie have lived an exciting and productive lifestyle during ten months of reunion, and they're jetting to LA Friday for a poolside celebration at Kelcie Montalco's, the former Playmate of the Year and soap-opera starlet, who bought his book-script for her first feature film. They survived a rooftop showdown with a violent sociopath (Jackson Rommel) thanks to a less feeble than imagined Silas Randson, and Eddie's willingness to take a .45 slug for Marlena. 'With Platinum Fury Focus' presents a massive shift (Eddie kidnapped week before wedding) in the Universe's usual favoring of Marlena's plans. Eddie asks Marlena to read an original version of the story that Montalco bought for movie bec. he's got shaky feelings about a certain character. "Having read my stuff since college, see if you can zero in on anything with this." "The Platinum Fury" is a pro beach volleyball icon, a friend's identity she cops admirably (minus 6'2" aspect) while seducing Eddie on their flight back to Charlotte for his bachelor party. When he's kidnapped by (antogonist) Terri Espinoza, its the third time she's come into Eddie's life. Her tazing him for starters doesn't look like this time's the charm. Marlena has Eddie's novella worth of clues about who she's dealing with, and beyond coincidence of her seeing a sex video Terri's nephew has of them(!), Terri can only guess how strong her spiritual doppleganger really is. In what looks like a double-cross, as a physical double for Terri, Kelcie Montalco plays a karmic role in capturing p.o.s. Brickman Greiner for Espinoza, in the sweaty, manic atmosphere of a Triple XXX night finale. Marlena's aside to Eddie at rehearsal dinner, about a Nostradamus-level specific route his script gets to Montalco in his novella: "...And Eddie, my love, I'm going to demand much more explaining about your one-on-one discussion with God and a Do Over life after we're on island time."
