    You Are One Sick Man!

    Tuesday, December 16 2008

    In his hotel room, Brad confronts Craig about his dealings with Spencer and Dani. Craig says Brad is crazy but he threatens to go to Margo. Craig stops him by saying that could hurt Katie! Brad won't give in so Craig reminds him that the charges against him have been dropped and he should move on. Brad says the old Brad would move on but he has changed! "I like being on the right side of the law. You should try it," Brad says and leaves. Craig calls Dani, who says she is willing to forget how rude he was before if he sleeps with her. Craig pulls away and reminds her she was indiscreet – and now has to leave town! He says Brad is on to their plans and she has to leave before everything is destroyed. She refuses to go. He gives her a wad of cash. "Be a good girl and run along," he says. Dani, on the verge of tears, says she won't go. Craig says he can't protect her from Margo when the truth comes out. Dani puts the money in her bag and tries to seduce him into one more roll in the hay. She kisses him and Craig leads her to the bed. Dani pulls a gun from her pocket! She says she is in charge; Craig says she can come back when the heat is off.

    Carly knocks on Craig's door; he convinces Dani to let him answer. She keeps the gun trained on him. "Is this a bad time?" Carly asks. Craig makes some excuses to get rid of her. When he closes the door, he says Dani doesn't have the guts to shoot him and takes the gun! He puts the gun in the briefcase as she asks if he is after Carly and Meg now. Craig insists Dani is the girl for him, gives her more money and says she has to leave. She says she will let him know where she is; he tells her not to do that, kisses her forehead and sends her away. Carly watches Dani leave from the hallway and then goes back to Craig's door! "You are one sick man," she says and stomps into the room. She confronts him about sleeping with Dani; Craig skirts the issue. "How do you live with yourself?" she asks. The champagne arrives and he pours two glasses. He brings up Jack's new marriage and says it is time for Jack – the morality police – to be removed to her past. Carly says she has moved on and leaves.

    At Margo's door Katie finally stops Brad by saying she will be arrested, too. Brad says Dani was in on this from the beginning but they can stop it; he points out that Margo will defend her. Katie insists that Craig will win and they will be destroyed. "Your brother doesn't scare me," Brad says. Margo hears their raised voices and asks what is going on. Brad stays quiet and they leave. Dani arrives a while later to tell Margo she has to resign. Margo asks why. Dani makes up a story about a sick friend; Margo suggests a leave of absence rather than quitting but Dani says that isn't fair to Margo or the force. Margo questions her some more but Dani sticks to her story. Margo asks for her new address so she can forward Dani's check. Dani says she is on direct deposit and hurries out.

She walks in and Brad confronts her at the bar, asking what is new in the Spencer case. Dani says there is nothing new; Brad insinuates that she isn't working hard enough. Katie grabs him and pushes him out the door. Dani calls Craig but he doesn't answer the phone.

    Craig tries to make nice with Carly but she is having none of that and tells him to go away. Craig mentions the wedding, which only annoys Carly more, and then orders them each another drink. They talk about Jack and then Carly brings up Craig's attempted murder of Paul; he says he didn't do it and Katie is backing him up. She wonders what dirt he has on Katie but he turns the conversation back to Jack. "What are you going to do with the rest of your life?" he asks. Carly says she is going to focus on her children and her career, making Craig laugh. He says she'll never make it because she'll find another hapless man. He reminds her of their romantic past; she says that is in the past. He points out that they could be good friends but she doesn't believe so. She pays her tab and Craig says they have a lot in common. She says he is disturbed. He points out that they would each do anything for their children. Carly asks why he is back and he says he returned to see what Dusty knew that he didn't. She says he brought all of this on himself and then asks what happens once he finds Johnny. He says he will do anything. Dani walks in and asks why he didn't answer his phone! Carly wonders what is going on. Craig covers by telling Dani that she has to deal with her boyfriend problems on her own. She storms off; Carly says Dani has boundary issues. Craig leaves. Carly calls Sage. Katie arrives and Carly confronts her about Craig's alibi. Katie says she kept quiet because she was mad and Carly accuses her of lying! She keeps pushing Katie.

    Craig catches up with Dani in Old Town and tells her to stick to the plan and stop screwing up. She says he covered with Carly and needs to lighten up. She asks about Spencer, he says as long as Spencer stays away they are fine. Brad overhears them!

Barbara arrives and asks how Dusty could try to kill Paul. He says Paul was trying to kill him but Babs doesn't believe him. "Paul hired Josie to create a connection to Jennifer," he says. Barbara says Paul would never do that; Dusty says it was all about Meg. Babs says Paul has changed and leaves.

    Dani and Craig meet in the park. She tries kissing him but he won't let her. Craig asks about Dusty's arrest. Dani asks why he cares and mentions Meg; Craig thinks she is jealous and kisses her. She accuses him of playing her. He says he'll tell her everything later but she won't let him leave without the full truth.

She says they have to get out of there before they are seen; Craig tells Dani to go first; he makes his way closer to them and listens as Paul orders Emily to stick to their story against Dusty.

    Who Will Be My Alibi?

    Friday, December 05 2008

    At The Lakeview, Dani is ready to tell the world about her relationship with Craig but he says they need to keep things low profile for a while. He asks about her flirtation with Chris, laughs and asks if he was supposed to be jealous. She says he was but he obviously wasn't. Craig says it is time to take their game to the next level – Katie!

    Craig goes to the police station and tells Margo he is innocent. She doesn't believe him; he says Katie will back him up. Margo calls Katie and asks her to come in; she and Brad arrive a few minutes later. Margo leads them into interrogation, where Craig is waiting. Katie acts stunned; Brad really is stunned. "Husband number four, is it?" Craig asks. "Maybe this one will stick!" Katie says she wants nothing to do with Craig and turns to leave. Margo says she is there because she has information about Paul's car bombing and asks if she really is Craig's alibi! Katie says Craig convinced her to meet him that afternoon during a break in her shooting schedule. Katie says Craig talked about leaving town and they argued because she didn't want him to go after Lucy and Johnny. Margo is surprised that her story exactly matches Craig's – and says she doesn't believe either of them! She asks why Katie waited so long to come forward; Katie says she was mad at him. She turns the tables and says this is typical Margo. "You never believe me," Katie says. Margo gives in. She releases Craig but still doesn't believe him. She says she'll find out how he got Katie to lie and will make his pay. She goes to the main office and sees Katie. Katie quietly tells Craig she never wants to see him again and leaves. Dani arrives and pretends to be surprised that Craig is back in Oakdale. She says he was like a second father to her and then Margo is distracted with the call about Dusty. Craig asks what Dani is doing. He reminds her that they have to keep their distance and says she can't just show up when he is around. She says she is sticking to the rules; he angrily tells her to do only as he says and then sends her away.
