    Something Has To Give.

    Monday, May 09 2011
    Tad warns Jake, AJ defends Miranda, and Griffin consoles Kendall.

    After Cara dissects the perfect French fry at Krystal's, Tad suggests she has too much time on her hands. He informs her he got her a job offer at the free clinic. She is touched and thanks him, calling him the world's best hubby. She leaves the room, as Opal walks in observing the scene. Cara gets a call from Jake about the girl whose parents she upset. Cara wants to see her and hangs up on Jake, who doesn't think it's a good idea. Cara tells Tad, who also opposes the idea. After the Martins have left, Amanda enters and talks with Opal, who offers her a drink. Amanda says she and Jake are trying for a baby so she isn't drinking. Opal is thrilled and tells Amanda she has news that will make her very happy.

    At the hospital, Cara convinces Jake to sneak her in to see the girl. As Cara reassures the leukemia patient, her dad walks in the room.

    Tad and Jake argue about the situation in the hallway. Tad chastises his brother for being married to one woman, while not being able to let another one go. He warns that everyone has to believe his marriage to Cara is legit or else she will get deported. Jake wonders why Tad would care if he was still hung up on Cara. Tad retorts Cara is his wife, but Jake reminds him she is his fake wife. Before he leaves, Tad sternly tells Jake he can't have it both ways and sooner or later something will have to give.

    The girl's father finds Jake in the hallway to yell at him about Cara, who insists Jake had nothing to do with her visit. Jake corrects her by telling the dad his daughter wanted to see Cara. After more words are exchanged, the man punches Jake out cold.

    Tad returns to Krystal's and gushes about how great Cara was with the girl. Amanda tells him Opal shared how close he and Cara are getting and expresses how happy she is for them. Through clenched teeth, Tad tells his mother she needs to keep her trap shut. Cara calls Tad and tells him what happened to Jake.

    Frankie helps Cara get Jake into a hospital bed and tells Cara to go before they all get in trouble. She tends to Jake first, which Tad and Cara witness. Amanda walks in the room and sits with her husband, as Tad leads Cara away.

    Bianca helps Marissa move back into the mansion, but she doesn't understand why she's doing it. Marissa assures her friend she and JR aren't getting back together. The nanny brings AJ and Miranda home from a party and tells them AJ got into a fight. Miranda explains the kids were teasing her about her family. AJ continues that he pushed one of the kids because they wouldn't shut up. Bianca asks what they said and Miranda responds, "She called you a lezzie." Bianca says they should go home and talk about it, but Miranda doesn’t want to and asks her not to make her. The kids go off to play and Bianca laments her daughter getting teased because she is a lesbian.

    Griffin stands outside the hotel room worrying about Kendall, as she tries to fend off Ricky's advances inside. When Griffin can't make contact with Kendall, he smashes some glass in the hallway. Ricky goes to check it out and finds a janitor who Griffin paid off to say some kids were horsing around. When Ricky returns to Kendall, she assures him she wants to be with him, but it's not the right time. Ricky says he will wait for her because when they are finally together it will be so incredible they won't want to be apart again. A shaken Kendall leaves and Griffin whisks her away.

    Back at the house, Kendall thanks Griffin for distracting Ricky. He's just glad she got out of the room. She admits this is more than she can handle and gets emotional as she replays what happened with Ricky. Griffin hugs her, assuring her she is safe there. She beats herself up for putting herself in danger, but Griffin calls her brave. She tells him she got Ricky's password and they formulate a plan. Griffin knows Zach would be proud of her because not many people would do what she's done to honor the man they love.

    On the yacht, Jack looks at a photo of him with Erica and throws it across the room. Ricky stops by and asks if he can use the boat to help Kendall heal. Jack says it's clear he and Erica won't be using it, so go ahead.

    Tomorrow's Pine Valley spoilers for All My Children:

    Amanda confronts Cara.

    JR makes a confession to JR.

    Griffin tires to find the missing drugs from the hospital.

    Amanda, stop lying. Jake is not trying to have another baby with you. Your inner Janet is coming out.

    Jake is starting to get very jealous of Tad and Cara.

    What kind of Rev. is Ricky? Should he be having pre-marital sex?

    PS...........Shout out to my Dallas Mavericks for giving the Lakers a good ole fashion Texas whoopin'. Those thugs Odom and Bynum need to learn how to lose with class. You can't go the finals every year.

    It would have been funny if after hitting his head, Jake would have thought he was still with Cara.

    The preview says JR makes a confession to JR. So is he talking to himself?

    Kind of hard to get back into the groove again...isn't it.

    A couple of things though...

    OPAL....The weekend didn't show her mouth speed...Still operates at 6000 rpm.

    KENDALL...Griffin called her brave. Sorry Griff....I still call her stupid.

    ****************OFF TOPIC*************************

    Magic Johnson correctly called it as he saw it....Win with class - and be able to lose with class...didn't happen.

    *that SHOULD be "SLOWED" her mouth speed. Although maybe SHOWED her mouth speed could be correct.

    Even the ABC Hotsheet didnt give away Ericas kidnapper...just a few more days.....

    One hit and Jake was out like a that guy was a jerk, but he stated he didnt want Cara around his daughter right? I would be mad too...

    Hard to believe that Ricky could get creepier.....

    jazzy12......I know Jake likes to throw punches....aaahhh...but, can he TAKE a punch...hmmmmm

    OMG, I just read the spoliers, does Madison loose the baby?

    Posted by fromthestart at Monday, May 09 2011 12:24 PM

    We have ALL been guessing like crazy over Erica's captor..... I wonder if after all of is just a crazy over zealous fan ?????? and nothing to do with exs, old beaus, etc.....and we have ALL been outguessed by the writers ???????

    Posted by fromthestart at Monday, May 09 2011 12:27 PM

    padiva......I wouldn't put it past the writers regarding Madison's baby....

    After reading over the GH message board the last several weeks (Remember I don't WATCH GH).....The posters over there are saying that ABC seems to have a "hit" out on all the children on their soaps. I don't know whats up with that network.
