    How Many Dead Women Have Said That?

    Tuesday, May 17 2011
    Ricky has a surprise for Kendall, "Erica" is full of energy and a familiar face appears.

    Jake and Cara meet up at the free clinic and note how familiar it all seems. They reminisce about Doctors Without Borders, but Jake says they can't do this anymore. She wants him to always remember her because she is grateful for her memories.

    Jake whisks Amanda off to a romantic day in the park.

    Tad brings Angie to a different part of the park. Angie tells him she knows he married Cara to keep her in the country, but their marriage looks real to her. Tad notes Cara still has feelings for Jake. He adds their marriage is okay and they're friends, but he doesn't expect it to become a real relationship.

    Liza eavesdrops on Jesse and Brot in the park. She hears Jesse say he owes Brot.

    Tad and Angie head to Krystal's. Liza finds Angie and asks to talk to her privately. Meanwhile, Tad and Cara discuss their situation with Jake at the bar. Tad knows the two of them have a lot of history, but Cara says all they have are memories. She thinks Tad must too with Dixie. She asks if he wants to talk about her. Tad shows Cara a picture of Dixie and says they were apart a lot, but they would wish on the same star.

    Someone in a dingy room, weakly draws a star on the wall. The woman reveals her face and looks just like Dixie.

    Jane wakes up in Erica's bed and lets out a 'woo-hoo' over being Erica Kane. Jack enters and she gushes over being with him. She's feeling energetic and can't believe she is there in the beautiful penthouse with her things and with him. Jack tells her there is a crowd of reporters outside, as well a police guard. She's thrilled about the reporters, but nervous about the cops. Jesse calls to say he's coming over to question her. As Jesse talks with "Erica" about her kidnapping, she says she doesn't remember much and pretends to get upset. Jack asks Jesse to leave. "Erica" says she wants to talk to the reporters and live life because Erica Kane always gets what she wants.

    Jesse meets Angie at Krystal's. She tells him Liza is worried about him. Jesse brushes it off, when Angie expresses her concern.

    Bianca stops by Kendall's and warns her sister what a dangerous game she is playing with Ricky. Ricky visits to see how "Erica" is doing. Bianca gets protective, saying they need to just be with family. Kendall intervenes and sticks up for Ricky. Bianca leaves to make a phone call and Ricky tells Kendall she should be with her family right now, but when they are alone there is something he wants to give her. The doorbell rings and Bianca opens the door to "Erica" and Jack. "Erica" remains exuberant, but acts a little awkward when the kids run in and hug her. She explains it away saying she's overwhelmed. Kendall and Bianca take the kids outside with the nanny. Ricky tells "Erica" he wants to take care of Kendall and he knows how much family means to her. He's glad they are there to be part of this and asks Kendall to marry him. Kendall is stunned and "Erica" declares how romantic it is. Jack intercedes and pulls Ricky away to give Kendall a moment. Bianca worries for Kendall, but Kendall thinks it'll be okay since Ricky loves her so much. Bianca wonders how many dead women have said that before. Kendall assures her she'll be okay and says she'll call her later. Bianca leaves and Kendall asks to talk to Ricky by herself. Ricky isn't sure what he'll do if Kendall says no to his proposal. She wants to be with him, but she doesn't feel she knows him that well. He says, "Marry me and I'll bare my soul to you." She takes off her other rings so Ricky can put his on her left finger. Kendall fights back her tears as Ricky says she has made him the happiest man in the world.

    Jack and "Erica" return home. She says she wants a big and splashy wedding, but Jack thought she wanted a private affair. He then notices her engagement ring is missing. She lies and says it's at the hospital. Krystal's name comes up and Jack guilty admits he turned to Krystal when he thought she left him. "Erica" is completely understanding, which surprises Jack. She tells him she just wants to live in the moment so whatever happened before doesn’t matter now.

    Jack shows up at Krystal's to pick up food for "Erica." They share an awkward moment but Krystal says she's happy for him.

    Jane shows up to see Erica in captivity. Realizing what Jane is up to, Erica declares she will never take over her life.

    Griffin is worried Ricky is on to him.

    David and Liza are always dipping on other folks converstions.

    Now exactly how are they going to explain Dixie coming back if she is coming back as Dixie and not someone else. I wonder who was that that welcomed Uncle Stuart Heaven's door.

    Dang, Rev moves fast. How long has Zack been dead? I know Kendall gets over them quick, but that's a little too fast to get engaged. Zack was the love her her life.

    Jack, do you really think that the real Erica would get over you turning to Krystal. At least you should take her to get her head examined.

    Jesse welcomed Gillian to Heaven also - they come back from the dead in Pine Valley all the time.

    Good luck with your plan Jane whatever it is, I think it won't last long.

    Cowboys fan - isn't Rev. Creepy just the most disgusting character since Ray Gardner? What makes it worse, Ray looked like the trash he was. Rev. Ricky looks like a nice buy, but trust me, he's just as bad as Ray. And let's not worry about Dixie being alive again - how many times has Stefano died on Days? I'll just be glad to see her back, especially if it turns out Dr. David had something to do with her being gone again. I would love to see AMC go out on a major Dr. David vs. the Martins battle. With Liza trying to decided whose side she's on.

    Gottalaff - I read in SOD that they're praying that Lorraine Broderick will end this faux-Erica mess before it goes too far. After all, AMC did the same thing with Janet and Natalie years ago, when Janet made herself look like Natalie, threw Nat down a well, and slept with Trevor, thus getting pregnant with Amanda. She may not have had plastic surgery, but she went a LONG way to make herself look like Nat.

    I am probably one of the few that feel this way but now that Tad has Cara I don't want Dixie to come between them. I always liked Dixie but I really like Tad with Cara.

    I did like the Nat/Janet story. This faux Erica story annoys me. How can they ALL be that blind? It would of been more interesting had Miranda or Spike pulled away from her sensing something different. Fauxica is what I am calling her made several mistakes today, big ones. Not telling Ricky to back up and give Kendall space (in that Erica way).
    Not asking about the grandkids right away. Not reaming Jack for kissing Krystal, and thats the big one. Erica would call the wedding off and go to Krystal to beat her down for trying Jack. I loled when she shook Jesse's hand. They weren't close but that whole scene with him was off. Also why tell that big lie that the hospital had her ring. Jack will only go and check, duh. Then where is Opal? I can just see that awkward reunion now. Opal's powers are way off if she can't sniff this one out. Not only did Dixie welcome Stuart n Palmer to heaven she talked to JR when he almost made it. How in the hell are they gonna do this now without us all throwing up. All it will do in bringing back "Dixie" is mess with Tad's mind, and get Cara deported. Whew smh how much soap can we eat?

    Um, personally I think it will be pretty easy to explain away all the "visions" of Dixie from heaven. When a person is dying or going through trauma, I think the brain allows them to see what they want to see. Please don't start in on me about the belief in heaven, angels, and stuff like that because that's not what I'm saying. I'm just saying that in those cases where Dixie's "spirit" has been seen it has been by people who loved her and missed her and would want to be comforted by her if they were going to die.

    I like Cara and Tad but it was Dixie & Tad who I adored when I first started watching AMC at the age of 6 with my grandmother (thanks again ABC & Disney for killing a generational pastime). They are soap opera soulmates to me. I really hope that she is alive and that it IS Dixie. I also wish that Alexa Gerasimovich was still playing Kathy/Kate because that reunion is going to be amazing!

    When Cambias Sr confessed to being the Satin Slayer didn't he tell whoever he was talking to (Tad JR or Ryan that he didn't poison those pancakes? David probably has her in prison cell maybe Chandler tunnels

    Why would anyone be on to Wonder Griff just because the idiot is running a free clinic out of a safe house!!!!

    Posted by cab313 at Tuesday, May 17 2011 01:18 PM

    Alexander Cambias sent a book or article to Ryan in which he claimed he did not poison those pancakes. Never did find out who really did.

    Why would the Keystone Cops be concerned about what Griffin is doing and where? They probably don't even know that house exists, much less what it's being used for.
