    No Drama. No Stress.

    Friday, August 26 2011
    Jack calls out Erica, Brot proposes, Jesse confesses and Zach's had it with Griffin.

    At home, Jack confronts Erica about why she's letting David keep the hospital. She tells Jack about David teasing that someone she once loved is still alive. She shows him a photo of Travis and Jack pulls out Mike Roy's obituary from her stack of memories. She notes he had a heart attack that no one told her about. Jack wonders if she wants to be reunited with one of her old lovers. Erica assures him she loves only him. Jack tells her to do what she needs to do. When she's done, she knows where to find him. He says he loves her and leaves. Opal visits her gal pal and gets filled in. Opal thinks this is just what David wanted, but Erica shouldn't take the bait and risk losing Jack. Erica agrees, but once alone, remembers her time with Mike.

    Tad stops by the Hubbards after Angie tells him Maya wants to find her baby. He tells the nanny he's just there to help her. Maya shares her story with Tad and how she left her daughter in a cop car. Tad thinks Jesse would help her, but she's afraid she could get fired or arrested.

    Jesse meets a nervous Brot at confusion. Brot wants Jesse's blessing to marry Natalia. Jesse is happy to welcome Brot to the family. Jesse thanks him for everything. He knows it hasn't been easy, but it looks like their secret will stay a secret. Jesse leaves and Natalia arrives. Brot tells his lady that his life hasn't been the same since he first laid eyes on her. Every day with her in it is better. He asks her to marry him and she excitedly says yes. As they celebrate, Tad arrives. Brot shares the good news and Tad congratulates them. He asks for a minute alone with Brot. Natalia leaves the area and Tad asks him about a baby left in a squad car. Brot stutters a bit, but says he doesn't know anything.

    In David's office, he tells Angie they might have to accelerate her treatment because of Griffin. Angie thinks she can appeal to Griffin, but thinks Griffin wouldn't be going to the FDA if David wasn't playing God. Maybe if he revealed who his other patients were, people wouldn't be attacking him. They might even work with him. David scoffs, wondering when anyone in town has ever worked with him. Angie declares she will. David says right now they need to focus on her eyesight. Angie doesn’t want him to shut down now. She asks who else he saved. She wonders if he saved Babe. David responds that he will reveal who he has saved when it's in their best interest, emotionally and physically. Jesse arrives to pick up Angie. Angie tells her husband the surgery has been moved up. Jesse worries it isn't safe, but David assures him it's fine. Privately, David tells Jesse that Angie has high blood pressure, which adds risk to the procedure. His job right now is to make sure Angie stays as calm as possible – no drama, no stress.

    Jesse finds Tad at Krystal's after getting a call from Brot. He offers to look into Tad's latest case, which makes Tad suspicious. Jesse calmly asks Tad to leave it to him. When Tad won't let it go, Jesse admits the baby he's looking for is Lucy.

    Once Zach returns home, Cara stops by. Zach tells Cara, Griffin and Kendall he wants Cara to take over his care under David's direction. Cara readily agrees. Griffin pleads with his sister to walk away and promises not to go to the FDA if she quits. Zach thinks Griffin is just pissed because he's back, which prevents him from being with Kendall. Zach warns Griffin if he sinks Orpheus he will regret it.

    Cara meets David in his hotel room. She tells him what happened at the Slater house. David thinks they just need to stay focused and not give up hope. She asks him if he's doing something to the patients to make them act differently than they normally would. David thinks they got to her. If she thinks he's capable of creating his own mob of zombies then he doesn’t want her involved. Cara just wants to know what's going on with Zach. David points out he saved the man's life so of course he would be appreciative. He also points to how Angie trusts him completely now. He declares the people of Pine Valley hate genius and do what they can to bring it down. He wonders if she will join the ignorant mob. Cara walks over to the door David left open and shuts it. She turns around and David kisses her.

    Griffin gets a text from Kendall to meet him at the clinic. Griffin finds Zach waiting for him instead.

    Erica can't let David's taunts go.

    Angie remembers giving up Frankie.

    No Ryan and Greenlee! Great! No Dixie! Better!

    Well the obsession with DAVID continues. Great ??

    I have to say that having lost my beautiful first wife to cancer and I know others on this board have lost loved ones too that it is difficult to "let go". But when the disease has been determined by the doctor to be terminal and your loved one is in pain AND a coma....Then you have to what is best for your loved one and NOT yourself. It is probably one of the most, if not THE most difficult moment of your life. Having said that....I don't care what the doctor's reputation is and he brought her back the LAST thing in the world I would do is "dis" the guy.

    I firmly believe that if DAVID HAD revealed the "dead" WAY before he has done now....The words of the collective mouths would STILL be...."DAVID YOU B*****D.....yada yada yada yada.....I am having less and less respect for these "good people" of PV.

    fromthestart...TOTALLY, COMPLETELY AGREE!!!!!!! They should be offering him their last penny. If Ryan walks out of this the HERO I hope the soap gets cancelled on-line also.

    From - I understand - my mother had terminal cancer and there is nothing worse than watching a loved one going thru that. The drugs are thus not enuf. By the time my mother passed on, she was glad to go; and I know the rest of us were exhausted. She had great doctors, and if one of them had known how to save her - well I'm not stupid enough to say they wouldn't haven't asked for exorbitant $$, but we would have known. David may have done good, but it was for HIS reasons, not for anything to have to do with the good of humanity.

    Unicorn Girl......Unfortunately I think the story will end up doing just that.....I just have this "gut" feeling about it. Although I certainly have been wrong before I think the writers still look upon him as the hero (Can't understand-but that's my take)......If they had to bring back anyone I wish it had been STUART....that would have been a pleasant relief as he had NO axes to grind with nice THAT would have been.

    Hipgrandma....essentially that's my point.....I am SURE DAVID has an agenda strictly for himself and would/will set everything up for HIS benefit.....The point is I wouldn't care. Let him have what he wants....I have my loved one back....And with health insurance costs now....You just got your loved one back for free.

    I FULLY expect to see DORK#1 ride off into the sunset in his golden armor and on his white steed towards the prince's castle at the end of the show. Somehow they WILL have DAVID'S Orpheus Plan go asunder. My only hope it that then....DORK#1, KENDALL, and TAD will see DORKESS#1, ZACK, and DIXIE slowly melt away into nothingness. (But we KNOW that won't happen, right ??)

    I know some of you are too young to remember GUNSMOKE. It lasted at least 20 years on prime time TV. It was an hour show and usually had a guest star every week. You didn't know if the guest was going to be a good or bad person. But, the one CONSTANT in the show was MARSHALL MATT DILLON. He WAS the good guy....sometimes his role on the show was small depending on the story and the guest. But he WAS the CONSTANT good guy. I can't say that about anybody on this show. Sorry

    this is STILL ON TOPIC BTW.

    SEINFELD is a perfect example of a show built around a group of people that usually were pretty shallow, BUT they were extremely funny. How did they end the show at the end of a long (and sad to see) run ???.....It was determined that they were indeed very shallow and pretty much worthless and were sent to jail. A perfect ending wouldn't you say. If only THESE writers could do the same.

    I agree totally with from the start.
