    Erica's Not Making Sense.

    Friday, July 22 2011
    Erica is released, Dixie runs into a few Pine Valleyites and Tad says goodbye.

    At the mansion, AJ asks Marissa and Bianca what's wrong with his dad. JR stumbles in with a drink in his hand and dares Marissa to tell their son the truth. Marissa wants to talk privately, but JR is eager to talk with AJ. He tells AJ it's not so much the birds and bees, but the birds and the birds. Marissa wants JR to back off and as he starts to walk away, he falls over AJ's chair. JR gets up, grabs his drink and makes his exit. Bianca leaves to talk to him, as Marissa tries to explain things to AJ. She tells him they are still a family, just a different kind because she loves Bianca. AJ understands because he has friends who have two moms and two dads.

    Bianca finds JR drinking outside. She rips into him for turning to booze because he feels sorry for himself. He gets off some caustic remarks about her going after the women in his life, but then screams that he knows he screwed up. Bianca corrects him by saying he had nothing to do with it.

    Bianca and JR return to the mansion. JR thinks AJ needs some time with his dad and suggests they play catch. AJ doesn't want to and cowers next to his mother. JR grabs his keys, ready to leave, but Marissa won't let him. JR says he'll walk instead and leaves.

    In the park, Kathy tells Cara she saw her mother, but Dixie is hidden behind the bushes. Dixie stumbles around the park until she runs into Brot. He wants to take her to the hospital, but she freaks out. As he answers a call on his radio, Dixie runs off.

    Cara returns home to Tad and tells him Kathy thought she saw Dixie. Cara thinks she misses knowing her mother and suggests Tad isn't ready to give her up either. After Tad goes through Dixie's diary, he says he knows how to say goodbye.

    Tad gathers Krystal, Liza, Opal and Cara at Krystal's to tell them he needs to publicly get rid of the things he's been holding on to connecting him to Dixie. JR silently shows up as Tad recalls how meeting Dixie and JR changed everything for him. He says wants to make sure JR knows he is his son no matter how many mistakes he makes. JR grows pensive and leaves. After more eulogizing, Tad tells Cara she is the reason he can say goodbye to Dixie.

    Erica tells Jane in her room that she wants to see who she used to be before the transformation. Jane shows her a photo and recalls her mother telling her how ugly she was. Erica thinks otherwise and urges her not to let her mother win. Erica tells Jane how remarkable she is considering all she's accomplished with her kidnapping. She wants her to own who she is and be Jane Campbell. Erica thinks it's time for Jane be out in the world as herself and that it's time for her to go home. Jane doesn't know how she'll do that alone, but Ben vows he'll be there for her. Jane then worries she'll end up on prison, but Erica promises she won't press charges. Ben says they'll take her back to Pine Valley, but they have to blindfold her so she doesn't know how to get back there.

    David calls Ben from Dixie's room and leaves an angry message relaying that she's missing.

    Jesse brings Angie to the hospital for a consultation with a surgeon that David set up. Jesse is worried about David's involvement, but Angie assures her husband Hayward has earned her trust. David frantically runs into the hospital asking a nurse if a Jane Doe has been admitted. Jesse and Angie find him and wonder why he's late to their appointment. He tells them they had to reschedule it and urgently walks away. A nurse approaches Jesse and Angie saying the surgeon wondered why they didn't show up to their appointment. Jesse knew David couldn't be trusted.

    Angie sits in the park alone until Jesse can join her. Dixie walks by her and Angie calls out asking who's there. She says she's a doctor and can help, which makes Dixie back off. Later, as JR wanders the park drunk, he sees Dixie passed out next to a bench.

    Jack punches David when he sees him at ConFusion. Jesse breaks them up and then Erica walks in. David kisses her, but she bites him. Erica embraces Jack and tries to explain what happened with Jane and Ben. Jack doesn’t think she's making any sense, so Erica demands that David tell the truth. Instead, David suggests Erica needs real help. Erica goes for his throat.

    Monday's Pine Valley spoilers for All My Children:

    Ryan catches Griffin in David's office.

    Erica sees Janet at Oak Haven.

    JR goes too far.

    I am confused! Tad gathers the women and says he is having a yard sale, then he talks he head off but never takes anything out of the brown box. Was there something I missed or am I to believe that he distributed items out of the camera's view, which is not the way it happens in life.

    At long last we have finally arrived at the "big breakout" story with Janet, Marian, Annie and...Dixie, Erica, This could (and I hope to god does) get interesting.

    Once Janet learns Amanda is seriously ill, perhaps she's the instigator in the break out. Hmmmmm. Have a great weekend, my AMC friends.

    The writers of AMC have decided to return to classics that I hated to see leave television:

    The Mary Tyler Moore Show, M*A*S*H, Seinfeld, Frasier, Everybody Loves Raymond.

    For example yesterday they had RYAN ask GRIFFIN: "Do YOU know the difference between good and evil ?" I burst out laughing....I was waiting for the punch line - it never happened so they ARE going to have to work on that part.

    TODAY....It says that JESSE catches DAVID in a lie.....I haven't laughed THIS hard in a long time...This is great, this is great.....Oh I have missed those SITCOMS.....Thank you AMC for returning me to those glorious good old fashion comedies........

    Some of the current characters could take over some of those "old" characters: e.g., TED (the news guy from Mary Tyler Moore) who wanted to know the news behind the news could be taken over by JESSE (Who wants to know the real story)

    MAJOR BURNS ( who felt he was a real hero and ladies man) could be taken over by RYAN.......This would be perfect casting........My joy knows no bounds

    WAIT what about the scene "night of the living dead" from yesterdays show.....Yeah I think the writers may have missed the "comedy" mark with that one.

    More errands again today....I just MAY have to go by that SAME park again.....Some trepidation...Why you ask ????

    WELL...."CAPTAIN AMERICA" is being released nationwide today....I am SURE RYAN is aware of that fact. If a red, white and blue shield comes flying out from behind the trees I am (as my youngest grandson would say) in deep doo doo. RYAN may look upon me as "the enemy".

    Nobody from the message board will be able to check on me until Monday. I may have to take the long way around.

    I knew that when Erica is out no one will believe her and put her in Oak Haven Since Jane probably left town there is no one to help Erica prove who she is. Since they blind folded her she can't show them where she stayed. Ben works with David so will he leave town or not.

    Does Bianca really think she is the one to talk to jr???? What a twit and under the circumstances to tell jr that he has nothing to do with it??? jr is a creep but Bianca and her latest disciple are annoying - actually this story is annoying.

    All I really want to say is that if all of these past characters are coming back (and from the dead) from being hidden because of David....the last episode should be:

    Hi all.

    OH PLEASE!!!!! So now erica is crazy & will go to Oak Haven. GMAFB Jack knows where she was being held he was there. All she has to do is tell him to go back where he thought he found her. There is no way Jane & Ben could have destroyed everything in such a short amount of time. OMG I am telling you, if this show wasn't gong off the air in 2 months I would have to take a break from it. It is driving me crazy.

    Again Amanda got ONE day of air time this week, just like last week. Can you IDIOTS just tell us what is wrong w/the woman. One week she doesn't feel good, the next week she has a test, the nest week she has a biopsy, the next week we are left hanging. GMAFB

    JR is one classy guy. poor AJ. I read that AJ slaps his father. YEAH Can't wait to see that. Maybe that will knock some sense into him.

    Dixie wondering around the park is absurd. The only 2 people to see her are Brot who never met her & BLIND Angie. Where are Ryan & Kendall? The park is like there second home. They chose today of all days to stay home?

    Hello to all my poster friends.

    WOW! not only is oak haven or where ever Dixie was locked up, next to the park, turns out, it was also next to the hospital and since Erica was locked up next to Dixie, they were all next to each other, and Ben needed to drive her back? Angie was sitting right there while Cathy and Cara were frisbeeing. LMAO when Erica ask Jack why he couldn't tell Jane was not her. That's because, Erica darling, he REALLY doesn't know you.
    Bianca is a jerk cuz, she stole Marissa from JR knowing how he felt about Marissa and using him. Is everyone ok with that? Stealing another person's partner is pretty wrong, and she had the nerve to lecture him? Why is she even in the house? Taunting him knowing he has a drinking problem and having trouble dealing with this new found situation? Man, these Kane woman are insensitive.
    The only saving grace is if JR gets back with Babe, come on writers, give us a happy ending. Then he can flaunt it in front of Marissa and Bianca will be jealous cuz she wanted Babe too.
    Everyone is able to attack David in front of Jesse and get away with it. I wish he would just hit them back. That would make my day.
    Yea, don't get the gathering Tad held either. Just wasting time and dragging stuff out.

    OMG so drunk JR sees Dixie. How much you wanna bet he just keeps walking thinking he is hallucinating.

    And didn't Tad have a funeral for Dix when she "died"? WHY the sudden need for a memorial service at Krystal's of all places?
