    A Pine Valley Christmas Eve

    Friday, December 22 2006
    • Tad spends Christmas Eve wandering in the snow, tortured by thoughts of his lost daughter.


    • The Chandlers are one big happy family on Christmas Eve.

    On Christmas Eve, Adam is happy as Krystal presents him with a framed copy of her sonogram. The entire family is gathered—except Dixie, who told JR she's going to see Tad. Krystal tries to hide her worry by leaving the room.

    Babe follows after her, and finds that Krystal thinks that Dixie will not give up until she convinces Adam about Charlotte's parentage. "Does loving Adam give me the right to keep a man from his child?" says Krystal. Babe urges her not to tell Adam anything until they know for sure.

    Even Colby is happy and thankful to be with her family for Christmas, although she is sad that her mother can't be with her. And she announces her present for JR, thought it won't be ready until after Christmas. She's "getting the 4-1-1 on Babe."


    Dixie spends Christmas Eve looking for Tad

    Dixie drops in at Wildwind quizzes Jamie and Julia about Tad's whereabouts, saying how worried she is and that she has information that might cheer him up.

    Tad is wandering outside in the cold, his discussions with David playing through his mind. Dixie finally reaches Tad on her phone and begs him to meet her at his house, saying she has to talk to him. She gets to his house and enters, but Tad is nowhere to be found. Suddenly the door opens. It's Father Clarence, and he's come to see Dixie!

    Fr. Clarence says he knows "a lot" about Dixie, and that last year Tad wished on the Christmas star for Dixie's return. Dixie is surprised when he tells her that she "has a gift for Tad" and can't figure out how he knew that. "I have a way of knowing what's in people's hearts," says Fr. Clarence.

    "Your daughter's not lost…she's where God wants her to be," says Fr. Clarence to Dixie. "The news that'll make Tad so happy…it's a child on the way, right?"

    "You're no longer alone in the world," says Fr. Clarence, "and Tad is looking for his answers, just as you are looking for yours."

    When Dixie returns to Chandler manse, Adam sees how emotional she is and asks if anything is wrong. She says that it's not the right time to say what needs to be said—and Krystal interrupts and says she'll say it.

    The Wildwind gang is decorating for Christmas when Julia rushes in and announces "I'm getting the best Christmas present!" Her friends Jim and Linda are on the way to Pine Valley, and they're the only friends she ever made during her years on the road.

    The doorbell rings and it's a coatless, carless Tad, who's acting a bit strange. Jamie and Julia are worried about him. Tad tells Julia that he thinks there's no Christmas star in the sky this year. While Julia answers the phone and Jamie goes to get him a coat, he disappears into the night. Tad is still wandering in the snow when he trips and hits his head. When he looks up, Fr. Clarence is there to offer help.

    NEXT on AMC:


    • Fr. Clarence promises Tad that by the end of Christmas Eve, his wishes will be granted.

    Aye, and I'm thinkin' Fr. Clarence may yet bring joy this holiday. Begorrah, a miracle indeed!

    Didn't he used to play a cop on Hill Street Blues?
    He was a nice cop.

    Fr. Clarence is played by actor-novelist Malachy McCourt. He does look a bit like the man who was on "Hill Street Blues", but it isn't him.

    I hope that Tad & Dixie's daughter is found and it turns out that the baby Krystal is carrying is really Adam's child. It time for there to be some stable long lasting mariiages on the show.
