Dani Learns Téa is Dying; SOD/SOW Article Summaries
After keeping the truth from her daughter for nearly two months, Téa finally admits the truth about her devastating diagnosis to Danielle this week. “They are very emotional scenes,” Kelley Missal (Danielle) previews.
In the aftermath of Danielle’s hostage drama with Nate, Todd, Starr and James, the group ends up at the hospital, where an ailing Téa has just been admitted, courtesy of Blair. As she is no longer able to keep her condition a secret, Téa tells Dani that she’s dying of a brain tumor. “Dani really had no idea. You don’t expect these kinds of things to happen in real life, so when she finds out, it’s just overwhelming,” says Missal.
Rather than share her feelings with Téa, Dani flees from the hospital to the park. “It’s just human instinct when we feel something that hurts us. We block it, we avoid it, we push it away at all costs, we hold it down inside us,” the actress observes. “Trying to relate to something so huge and something so real is a huge challenge for me. It’s news that if I got in real life, I don’t even know what I would do. It’s unfathomable to her. She’s just going crazy.”
Meanwhile, Téa leans on Blair, who promises to help Dani cope with what’s happening. “When something like this happens, I think people find it’s a test of what they can endure, but also what the people around them can endure,” shares Florencia Lozano (Téa). “Sometimes I think it’s harder for the people who love you than for the person going through it. I’m happy to say I don’t know this from experience, but the feeling of helplessness, when people who love you find out there’s nothing they can do, that kind of despair must be incredibly excruciating.”
Ultimately, Dani gathers the strength to face her mother…as well as the reality that she may be forced to rely on Todd after all. “Dani thinks, ‘Oh, my God, what if my mother dies? I’m not going to have her. Now, Todd is going to be the one parent in my life,’” shudders Missal.
