    A Visit From an Old Friend.

    Tuesday, May 20 2008
    Adam gets a dire warning from Dixie; Aidan and Greenlee vent; Wedding preparations are interrupted by a visit from Greg Nelson!

    Tad and Jake show up at The Comeback for a drink to celebrate Jake's decision to stick around Pine Valley for awhile. Julia walks by Jake at the bar, chatting on a cell phone, working out details of a career move she's planning. Aidan shows up, in a foul mood, and he and Tad sit at a nearby table for a chat about babies. Tad is skeptical that Greenlee won't ever change her mind about having kids, and questions whether or not this is really about having a family or about a "measuring contest" Aidan's got going on with Ryan. Aidan insists this isn't about Ryan, but admits he's rethinking his and Greenlee's relationship. Jake joins them at the table and Tad offers up a toast to women. Aidan questions whether or not women are worth the trouble they put men through. But just as he's convinced that they're not, he jumps up to "get another pitcher of beer." Instead, he surreptitiously gives Greenlee a call but gets her voice mail and hangs up.

    Greenlee and Kendall arrive at Confusion, where Babe and Amanda are waiting to join them for a Girls Night Out. Greenlee tries to resist, but they won't let her out of it. The girls sit around and chat about motherhood, swapping horror stories about their moms. Greenlee says none of it matters because Aidan bolted when she told him she didn't want kids anyway. To change the subject, Greenlee turns the spotlight on Babe and her love life. Babe admits she was wrong about Richie and JR, but especially JR. She tells the girls about what Richie did to set up JR and reveals to her friends that she plans to get even with Richie. Conversation turns again and at the same time that Aidan is wondering about the benefits of women, Greenlee is doubting the benefit of having a man around. She, too, jumps up to "get another round of martinis," but instead gives Aidan a call. She, too, gets voice mail because he's calling her at that exact moment and she, too, hangs up.

    JR bursts into Zach's office, miffed about some missing reports. Zach says he'll give JR the reports he needs if JR will give him what he needs: information about who ran him down. JR hints that he has some ideas who might have been the guilty party, but puts the squeeze right back on Zach, saying that kind of information will cost him. "We have a common enemy. Together we can take him down," Zach says, as JR leaves the office.

    Adam and Dixie are still having it out in Adam's room at Oak Haven, where Adam vows to never give in to Dixie's demands that he reveal Kate's whereabouts to Tad. "Something terrible is about to happen," Dixie warns. But Adam doesn't believe her. Dixie hints, however, that the pain and suffering coming down the pike might not be directed at Adam, but at someone he loves instead. She tells him that the bad thing can only change if he does the right thing. She disappears before revealing to Adam who will suffer, her voice echoing only that the people who will suffer are the ones he loves the most. Stuart shows up and Adam tells him about Dixie's threat. "I can't let this happen. I've got to find a way to stop her!" Adam says. But Stuart tells Adam that he's the one who needs to stop. He advises Adam to "act normal" when the doctor shows up to evaluate him so maybe he can go home. And then, Stuart says, he'll talk to Dixie again and ask her to stop haunting Adam. As soon as Stuart leaves, Dixie materializes again, with a "last warning." JR shows up at Oak Haven just as Adam is being seen by the doctor. JR's getting impatient, but before he knows it, Adam steps out, looking like his old self again, released from the hospital.

    Wedding preparations are well underway at the Hubbard house as Frankie shows up with a mysterious "surprise" for Angie. Greg Nelson walks through the door! "Just an old friend," he says. Angie can't believe her eyes. She hugs Greg and cries. Greg gives Jesse a long look. "This is like a dream come true. Come here, man!" Greg cries and pulls Jesse in for a hug. Angie says there's only one thing that would make the reunion perfect: Jenny. Cassandra is introduced to Greg and she right away digs out an old photo album to look at a photo of Greg and Jenny together. Things get nostalgic as they swap Jenny stories. Angie announces that there's something they need to do, and she, Greg and Jesse leave.

    Jesse, Angie and Greg go to the cemetery, where they visit Jenny's grave. They talk to "Jenny," flashing back to old memories. Greg steps forward and apologizes for being away for so long. He, too, remembers the first day they met, and flashes back to old memories about their life together, including their wedding day. "I meant it, Jenny," he sobs. "I've never stopped loving you. And I never will." Jesse and Angie leave him alone there, where he tells Jenny he wishes they could have a miracle, too, just like Jesse and Angie got. He lays a red rose on the tombstone, kisses his fingers and places them on her name, and says, "I'll see you again. I'll see you again someday."

    At Rob's, the FBI agent is full of questions for Rob. "We think you might have shot the wrong man," the agent says. He asks Rob to come down and help them figure out what went wrong. Rob says he'll be by the Bureau "in a couple days" to help sort things out. Later, listening through his surveillance device, Rob overhears as Frankie and Cassandra pack to leave, taking the backpack (and the elephant) with them. "By tomorrow I'll have my prize," Rob says to himself. He tucks a gun away in his jacket, walks past the slumped-over FBI agent, puts a "Do Not Disturb" sign on the door, and leaves.

    Next on All My Children:

    Tad hopes for a great day, but Dixie whispers that it won't happen.

    Jack spills the beans about Aidan and Kendall to Greenlee.

    It's wedding day for Angie and Jesse!

    Hi everyone!
    Part of the show was bumped by ABC Breaking News, so I don't know exactly what happened between Rob and the FBI agent -- just that later the FBI agent was slumped over and looking a little dead. Anyone happen to see it and want to enlighten us?
    Enjoy the rest of the recap!

    This is the part that ticks me off. They could have use the bottom screen to relay the message of kennedy's brain tumor. Now we missed the FBI and Rob situtation, I guess Rob killed him and will probably ship him off somewhere. I also loved that they ask Greg to come back for the wedding. everything is really working for AMC. Keep up the good work.

    We've missed you Greg. Welcome back!

    I enjoyed seeing Greg back on the show, I always liked Greg but could never stand his meddling mother Don't any of you find it strange that no one has noticed the oragami crane that fell out of Robert's pocket before he left. I guess that's not really strange, Kate's adoption papers sat on Adam's floor for months just shows he does not have good housekeeping!!
    Have a good day!

    To those who missed it: yes, UR shot the agent, who was insisting that he come back to FBI headquarters w/him to clear up some "discrepancies"...they think he killed the wrong man (DUH); UR insisted he had an important event to attend and would come there in a few days; the guy said that was not acceptable and UR pretended to go get his coat, came out and shot him, put a DO NOT DISTURB sign on the door and left.

    Yes, Jacoshan, I thought about that, too the other day! Boy are these people blind or what??? How could they just step over it? It was right there! I wanted Jesse to see it and remember the warehouse torture and put two and two together...another s/l lost to dumb writers.

    Well, I'm back from my trip to Europe; and Ryan still has no memory of Annie! I hate it whenever AMC drags things on for months!! It's unbelievable. They should get Zack to find out that it was Richie who ran him over and dumped him in the bomb shelter. When is that ever gonna happen! Give Richie what he deserves; which is payback from Zack! I hope that Rob doesn't kill Jesse! That would be horrible! Tad hasn't found his real daughter Kate for 1 year already!! That's really horrible! They need new writers on AMC, because this dragging on for a long time is unforgivable! It's totally unnessary. It makes people not wanna watch the story for awhile. I'm glad Babe is finally on JR's side. About time! I hope Rob finds the stupid elephant already and get out of the story! I hope that Greenlee doesn't try and make a play for Zack; now that she knows the truth about Aiden and Kendall's one-night stand! It was studpid of Jack to spill the beans like he did; but I knew it was gonna happen that Greenlee would find out. She probably won't marry Aiden now. It's turning into a disaster. AMC needs to put some good things happening in the story for a change. What is Jake's secret?
