    Kind Of, Sort Of, Almost.

    Tuesday, August 17 2010
    Noah gets the wrong idea, Barbara and Emily get in more trouble and Henry puts the clues together.

    Katie sits down with Henry at Al's. He asks her to help him hunt down Vienna in Sweden so they can get the truth about Barbara. Katie thinks that's a bad idea so he tries to guilt her into helping. She doesn't want to leave town when she's involved with Chris. He assures her that the doctor is crazy about her.

    Reid is disturbed to see Chris doing rounds at the hospital and reminds him that he needs an MRI. They bicker and Reid tells him Katie doesn't need another corpse in her life. Chris begs him to keep his mouth shut and asks for his help with his next round of shots. He already got them a hotel room to do them in. Reid thinks this is ridiculous. As they shout at each other, Katie walks in. Chris covers and Reid grouchily walks out. Katie chases after him and demands to know what is going on between he and her 'kind of, sort of, almost boyfriend'. Reid isn't forthcoming so she goes back to Chris and tells him Henry wants to go to Sweden with her. He encourages her to go with him. She's reluctant when she wants to stay and get closer to him. Frustrated, she leaves.

    Luke walks into Java and chats with Noah about the grant for his movie. Luke tells him he looks very handsome and responsible and congratulates him about his plans to go to LA. Noah always thought they would go together... He asks him to go with him. Luke sighs but says he can't go. They talk about how they used to be and how all of that changed. This isn't what either of them thought would happen to their lives. Luke admits that things are serious with Reid, who then calls and says he can't meet him until later. Noah complains that Reid used him to get to Luke. Luke doesn't think so. Noah gets uncomfortable about saying goodbye and walks out.

    Hopped up on caffeine, Luke rushes into Memorial looking for Reid and a nurse informs him that Reid isn't there.

    When Reid arrives at the Lakeview, Chris is practically having a heart attack. He wants him to go to the hospital but Chris refuses. As Reid helps him into the elevator, Noah stands by and spots them, assuming that Reid is taking some guy up to his room. Noah immediately calls Luke.

    Paul walks into Fairwinds and slaps a woman's bottom. Unfortunately, it's Iris, not Emily, not that Iris minds too much. As Paul cringes, Will and Gwen walk in. Iris scurries off while the couple tell Paul that they think Emily must be involved in Barb's disappearance. Paul tries calling his wife but has no luck. He has a bad feeling about this. He gets a text from Emily saying she's on assignment. Paul finds it strange and texts her back.

    In the wine cellar, Barbara and Emily try to get the beam they are strapped to to move. When they do, parts of the ceiling fall on them. They bicker until Iris comes down and laughs at them. She asks for the money from Barbara, which only makes her angry. Iris gets them to shut up and then answers the phone, pretending to be Babs. He arranges a meeting with her banker and then leaves. The women continue to bicker.

    Iris meets with the banker and the Lakeview and he tells her that the account she is trying to draw on was already maxed out. After he leaves, Henry walks by after smelling Barbara's perfume. He's shocked when the scent is coming off of Iris. She gives him a bundle of excuses and leaves.

    Noah and Luke meet up in Java again. Noah explains that he saw Reid at the Lakeview getting in the elevator with a guy. "You're dating someone who is cheating on you," Noah says. Luke thinks he's being unfair and they argue. Luke accuses him of trying to ruin things for him.

    In the hotel room, Reid gives Chris his treatments and warns him how much danger he is in. Chris refuses to listen.

    Henry walks into Fairwinds and begins complaining about Iris. Gwen and Will run off to find her. The half brothers begin bickering about Barbara. Henry starts to put the clues together and wonders if Iris could be the one running around dressed as Barbara.

    Iris returns to the wine cellar, furious with Barb for giving her a bad check. She says it's too risky for her to stick around because of her 'stupid cougar hound' (Henry). Emily offers Iris a password to a bank account. Iris runs off and the women return to yelling at each other. Barbara thinks they're doomed now. She tries to move the beam again. It falls and hits the power box. Sparks begin to fly.

    Reid goes to Lily's to see Luke, who confronts him for lying to him.

    Chris goes to Katie's and asks her to a cocktail party. She shoots him down.

    Next on As The World Turns:

    Gwen and Will confront her mom.

    Paul smells smoke.

    Luke accuses Reid of cheating.

    Katie hears Reid ordering Chris to see a cardiologist.

    It's about time they are going to find poor Babs, she has been wearing the same clothes for weeks and what about the bathroom? Just saying! I want this s/l to be over so Babs and Henry can have some fun and add a little laughter to all the bickering and accusations everyone is throwing around.
    Good afternoon all posters, good that the site finally came back up, I missed it yesterday.

    Blesseddiva, true it's a bit of a yawn fest!

    FINALLY...Henry's putting the pieces together and Paul's listening to him! This long, drawn out ordeal will finally be over! Emily is a twit, though, giving Iris the password. Iris must have hit her too hard over the head with the wine bottle to be so dumb...

    Chris and Katie are both acting like children and getting on my nerves! How many people have to tell her that Chris is crazy about her? Talk about insecure and needy...Katie could be the poster child! And Chris treating himself with Reid's help! Then saying he would lie about it to get Reid into trouble! And he wants to be Chief of Staff!!! Please!!!

    And Noah turning everything around and putting all the blame on Reid! Noah's the one who pushed Luke away and blamed him for everything that was wrong in his life when he was blind. He was downright mean, cruel and nasty to Luke, yet he wants Luke to go with him to LA! And then he can't wait to call Luke to tell him that Reid's cheating on him! Talk about being nosy and vindictive!!! And Luke should know that Reid doesn't have time to get involved with someone else. He doesn't even have the time to get fully involved with Luke, let alone someone else! Ugh!

    Tomorrow should be a really good day...Babs and Emily finally get rescued, Gwen sees how bad Iris really is, Reid tells Chris to see a Cardiologist and Katie overhears (hopefully she'll be smart enough to realize that something is physically wrong with Chris) and Luke confronts Reid about lying/cheating on him! Looks like there'll be a full day of goings on in Oakdale tomorrow...

    Have a great evening everyone!

    this used to be my all-time favorite soap...USED TO BE!!! At this point, I'm not even sure if I'll miss it like I did Guiding Light when it ended. There is really nothing worth watching on it anymore... I think the writers were done a long time ago...

    I am so glad maybe this S/L is finally coming to an end. I don't care for Emily, but I have enjoyed the bantering between her and Barbara. Noah MYOB but I read a ***Spoiler*** that Reid dies. I hate that. I really don't think Chris deserves to be COS after her falsified Vienna's medical records. Gwen, open your eyes, your mother is bad news!

    Emily is a twit.

    I think I don't like luke and reid.. just reid. today he made both chris and katie more interesting....

    babs has been in the same clothes sans shower for awhile, she looks good though, flawless make up...

    Barb G, I think Noah was probably right to tell Luke what he thought he saw, even though his motives were less than pure... if you saw someone cheating on someone you loved you'd want to tell them too.

    two days of luke and reid... yay

    OK, plot-wise it was pretty much dragging out various story lines, but: a) Henry! b) Paul!, c) Luke!, d) Barbara and Emily bickering! (I love to see those two actresses go at, you can tell how much fun they're having), and e) Iris's plan is finally starting to unravel.

    I have to admit, I kind of wish Chris would just go ahead and die.

    Time's a-wasting, let's move it along, writers!

    Posted by Peteena at Tuesday, August 17 2010 01:17 PM

    I forgot to add to my list: f) no Carly, Jack, Craig, Janet or Dusty! That's where the real yawns are, IMHO.

    cards... after reading your spoiler, I couldn't figure out why I was feeling so angry, I had read something similar somewhere else too... now I don't even want to watch any of it anymore... alas.
