    There In A Heartbeat.

    Wednesday, July 20 2011
    Maria offers her support, Greenlee works David and Tad confides in Cara.

    At home, Cara encourages Tad to read Dixie's diary. He opens to a page where Dixie, as a young girl, talks about wanting to marry a boy who makes her laugh every day. She also wanted to have both a girl and a boy. Cara thinks Dixie got her wish, but Tad points out she never knew Kathy. Tad puts down the diary and say he needs to get out of the house. Cara asks if he wants company. He says, "You bet I do."

    In the park, Tad admits he will always miss Dixie, but he thought he got to the point where the memories weren't painful. He explains how he turned out okay because of Dixie and fills Cara in on some of his caddish past. Tad realizes he hasn't made peace with her death, but thinks now is the time. Cara wants to help him move on, like he did for her. Tad responds that he needs her and asks her to be there when he says goodbye.

    Amanda meets JR in the park and tells him she might have cancer. JR tells her he's there for her. Amanda responds if she does have cancer he is the last person she would lean on. He understands, but he can relate because he survived cancer. She doesn't want to hear his stories and tells him despite Jake being okay about their tryst, she's quitting her job. JR is glad someone's relationship is going well. He tells her about Marissa being a lesbian and takes a drink. Amanda expresses some concern, but JR assures her he's tough and he'll be okay. JR comes on to her, but she pushes him away.

    After Asher runs out of pills, he goes to the hospital to get a refill from Frankie. Frankie refuses because he thinks he's abusing them. Asher gets upset, as Caleb walks up. Frankie offers to give Asher some names regarding addiction. Asher gets defensive and walks away. Caleb stops him and says he will be his father in all this and orders Asher to come with him.

    Asher and Caleb walk into the mansion and find JR drinking. Caleb wants to take Asher home with him. After JR becomes more belligerent, Asher leaves with his father. JR grabs his keys and a bottle of booze.

    Greenlee is startled awake after having a dream about David at home. She tells Ryan she thinks she's remembering something from when David saved her from the accident. She recalls seeing the Orpheus logo on her I.V. drip as well as someone else on a gurney. She doesn't quite know if it was a dream or if it really happened though. She wants to work David to figure it out. Ryan says they have to find a way to manipulate David just right.

    Griffin calls Maria from the hospital about David and Project Orpheus. At first, she says she doesn’t know anything about it, but then she recalls something. She tells Griffin how when she went on the run fearing she killed someone, David gave her a credit card registered to Orpheus. She tells him if David is hurting someone else and Griffin needs help stopping him, she will be there in a heartbeat.

    Griffin heads into David's office for answers on Orpheus. He accuses David of lying to him and demands the truth. David gets upset and warns him if he wants to stay onboard he needs to back off and stop asking questions. If he doesn't, David will cut him loose. After Griffin leaves, Greenlee enters demanding her medical records because she's experiencing numbness in her leg and she needs her new doctor to look at her history. David grows concerned and wants to examine her, but Greenlee says he won't ever get that close to her again. As they argue about her medical records, Greenlee fakes a pain in her leg. David declares no other doctor can help her. Greenlee agrees to let him examine her.

    Ryan finds Griffin at Krystal's and asks if Greenlee was part of Project Orpheus. Griffin tells him there's no way of knowing, but Ryan wonders about the other patient. Griffin is taken aback, but says it sounds like a dream. Across the restaurant, Amanda confides in Opal that she might have cancer. Opal urges Amanda to let her family love and take care of her.

    Griffin returns to David's office demanding to know if Project Orpheus is pure research or has he been experimenting on humans?

    JR get a grip. I don't like Bianca and Marissa together either.

    When is Dixie going to surface?

    I love Caleb since he is not chasing Erika and while I'm talking about Erica, when is this s/l going to end?

    Posted by cowboys fan at Wednesday, July 20 2011 11:32 AM

    How long has Dixie been dead, and Tad has not made peace with it yet? When Dixie comes back, that will be the end for you Cara.

    I love how JR is going around telling everybody that Marissa is a lesbian. He needs to hurry up and tell David.

    Maria, David is not hurting anyone. He's saving lives. Bringing folks back from the dead.

    I am starting to get this feeling about SOAP OPERA JUSTICE......What is THAT you ask ?????

    Well I am SURE "they" are leading up to DAVID getting paid back for ALL the BAD things he has done in the past (even though he DID -as he mentioned yesterday) SAVE KENDALL (virtually twice) HER SON, GREENLEE...etc, etc......BUT he WILL get his true justice for the BAD THINGS.....


    Those characters who have done A FEW (count them on ONE finger)......GOOD THINGS will by the end of the show be rewarded for THEM....forgetting COMPLETELY ALL THE BAD THINGS THEY HAVE DONE ??????

    Now we see why Malissa chose to go Gay over JR and why her Momma and the whole town could endorse that. He's scum. Here poor Amanda is telling him that she thinks she has cancer. Then regardless to the fact that you had it or not because of the recent tryst I couldn't possibly turn to you....what does his skeezy butt do? Come on to her?
    Okay I'm done!

    So by actually watching the show, Griffin doesn't know Maria but then how did he know how to reach her? Well actually what he said was, "you don't know me" - so does Griffin know Maria but not vice versa? But now Griffin is asking if there has been human experimentation - I am SO confused.

    Dr. Demento has been busy keeping people alive and confined - Dixie ate those poison pancakes in January 2007. Why has he kept her hidden so long? Rhetorical question because why does he do any of his evil deeds. Answer: because he can.

    I have the perfect solution for David, inspired by (okay, basically ripped off from) Agatha Christie's masterpiece, Murder on the Orient Express.

    David is found dead, stabbed 19 times in the chest and once in the shoulder. Jesse investigates and discovers that any one of 20 people in Pine Valley had ample reason for carving up Dr. Hayward. But the clues are confusing - some point to one person, others point to another...indeed, there are clues that indicate it could have been any of the 20.

    Jesse comes to the realization that the only way this could indeed be the case is that they ALL did it. Each person stabbed David once, so there would be no way to identify who inflicted the actual fatal blow.

    Rather than turn everyone in, Jesse decides, just as detective Hercule Poirot did on the Orient Express, that the victim essentially "had it coming." Life goes on in Pine Valley.

    Oh, and why was one of the stabs in David's shoulder? That was Angie.

    AMCguy.......That would be par for the course for JESSE.........

    Posted by fromthestart at Wednesday, July 20 2011 11:55 AM

    If we want REAL JUSTICE about this one ????? Among those brought back from the dead by DAVID is: DA NORTH......He also escapes along with DIXIE and ends up pushing JESSE off the cliff.....PAYBACK is H*LL

    Posted by fromthestart at Wednesday, July 20 2011 11:58 AM

    I have to agree with Ms. Bee......Right now JR is absolute scum.....When he is eventually confronted by DIXIE....he will have a lot of 'splainin' to do.

    Posted by fromthestart at Wednesday, July 20 2011 12:04 PM

    I do feel sorry for AMANDA.....I have kidded about her IQ in the past, but I have NEVER doubted that she is just a "nice" person (maybe too nice, sometime)......To see her pretty heart wrenching and very real....She will need JAKE and EVERYBODY else around her for support. That will NOT negate her fear, but at least she will know she is LOVED. I was hoping they wouldn't do it this way....BUT, it looks like "they" have other ideas.
