    Tad's dark night of the soul

    Thursday, December 21 2006
    • Dixie won't give up asserting Tad is the father of Krystal's baby.

    • Who is sending gifts to Erica?

    • Livia visits Tad.

    As they prepare to leave Fusion following the reception, Kendall can't accept that it's almost Christmas and her friends aren't here. When she and Zach return home, their house is fully decorated with a huge tree, evergreen garlands and an assembled model train. Kendall attributes it all to Zach and is ecstatic.

    Dixie remains convinced that Tad fathered Krystal

    As they chat on the Fusion roof, Babe insists to Dixie that Krystal's baby is Adam's. "You don't have to protect your mother…not from me," replies Dixie. Babe urges her not to ruin Adam and Krystal's happiness with her lies!

    It did happen, says Dixie. She was there. And she won't back down. It's true and that David was going to announce that on the DVD Babe smashed. Babe tells Dixie that if she tells Adam Tad is Charlotte's father, he'll leave Krystal and break her heart. And why is Dixie believing David's claim? After all, didn't he also say that Emma was Kate? "Please Dixie," she begs, leave Mama and Adam's baby out of this."

    Jack tells Bianca what a great job she's done and how he'll always be there for her—no matter what happens between him and Erica.

    Bianca tells Zach that she knows his secret—his desire to protect them and his anguish when he can't. But, she insists, the killer is not Zarf! He may be strange, but he's not a killer. She remains at Fusion, despite Kendall's suggestion she leave. Bianca insists that she's safe with her bodyguard.

    Bianca comes out on the roof and Dixie peppers her with questions—especially about how Bianca was able to forgive Babe for keeping Bianca from Miranda. Bianca acknowledges that she really has not forgiven Babe.

    Dixie jumps on that and says "so you haven't forgiven her." Bianca admits she has a range of emotions about Babe—but keeping a mother from her child is unforgivable. But Bianca also says that this is only her experience—she doesn't want to complicate things for Dixie.

    Krystal and Adam are dressing up as Mrs. Claus and Scrooge to entertain children at the manse. Babe rushes home to alert Krystal about her conversation with Dixie who is about to "blow the tinsel off [Krystal's] tree."

    When Erica returns to her room, she finds a box containing a jeweled brooch with a card signed "J". When Jeff comes to her room, she asks if he's sent it to her. Sean and Colby are lurking outside Erica's room, and then Sean comes in to see Erica.

    Sean tells Erica that if she wants to come home, "the presents never happened." She doesn't respond and he leaves.

    Back at the Montgomery house, Colby explains her entire plan to reconcile Jack and Erica and the plethora of gifts she's sending. Jack comes home and wonders what those two are up to.

    "I traded away my soul," said Tad.

    Alone at home, sitting in the dark, Tad can't stop thinking about Kate and the burial of Greg Madden. The bells rings and it's Livia, saying that she knows who killed Madden. "I used to call you friend," says Livia. "What the he** happened to you? Is there any part of my friend still in there?"

    "Madden's gone, Kate's gone…and whomever I used to be is gone too," says Tad. "I'm alone and my family is in shreds. I'm in he** where I belong. Everything I had is dead and gone. I traded away my soul. That's who I am."

    Livia insists that there is hope for Tad and that God will forgive him. No, says Tad. There's nothing left.

    NEXT on AMC:

    • Father Clarence pays a visit to Dixie.

    • Krystal fears her life is going up in smoke.

    • Julia comes to see Tad.

    I used to love Dixie, now I'm starting not to even like her. She needs to mind her business and leave Krystal and Adam alone. If it's meant for Adam to know, let him find out another way.

    I do not like this new side of Dixie at all. In fact, it may be drastic, but I wouldn't care if the serial killer got her also, and then when Kate does arrive, Tad can have his daughter back. Dixie is really mean and rotten! AMC writers take note: Kill of Dixie and let Brook stay in PV!

    Dixie should be the killer so she can hurry up and leave

    I have to say that Tad is so emotional, that I really feel every thing he is feeling. I feel his hopelessness and I am truly looking for some kind of relief. Something for TAD, not a restitution for Dixie. But something for TAD. And I don't wish anything bad for Krystal and Babe, but let's keep it real, as long as they are happy, no else matters. Ask Bianca.... All in the name of what's right for them.

    I have been watching soaps for over 30 years and in that time have never seen such an evil actress as Dixie. She used to be so "user-friendly" with the other actors and the fans, now she is a female dog that needs to be locked up and given the rabies treatment to keep her safe to be around. PLEASE, PLEASE, either get RID of Dixie or SHUT HER UP.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I forgive you Tad!
    I miss that fun-loving cut-up good ol' Tad Martin!

    Dixie was such a good Mom, but she's a terrible granny. She has all the time in the world to spend with Little A, but she doesn't hang.
    Here's to all the Wonderful Granny's out there!
    Put you feet up and let everybody else do the work this holiday!
