Stay Tuned for Danger
In 1999, Rick's costar Mattie Jensen asks Nancy to come stay at her apartment to investigate a series of threats Rick is receiving. They range from notes with cutout letters, to typewritten letters, to weird gifts and strange accidents. Rick himself puts on a façade as a cool, collected, cheerful man making Nancy find him cute when in reality he is very conceited and not at all worried about the threats. In the end, Nancy finds out that there were many culprits to this case. Rick was sending the first notes to himself out of vanity and signing them with "B. T. Kaisuur", an anagram of his real last name, Aburtuski. Lillian Weiss, the show's director, had sent him poisoned chocolates out of anger for him dumping her, and Dwayne Powers, his former agent, had done everything else, blaming Rick for his failed business and claiming that "everybody hates Rick".

In Louis' briefcase, there is a magazine clipping that says:
Rick Arlen: Back With a Vengeance
Soap star heartthrob, Rick Arlen, has renewed his contract with Worldwide Broadcasting but admits he had misgivings about another season with Light of Our Love. "It was a very difficult time of my life," the actor admits "There were a lot of things going down and I didn't know if it was time to move on." Rumors have persisted that Arlen had been victim of a stalker and that a teen detective named Nancy Drew was on the case. However, neither Rick nor the show's producer, William Pappas, had any comment.
