He says she came onto him, always seeking him out, wearing skimpy little tops and short skirts. He says she wanted it. He says he can't forget her. She tells him if he comes near her again, she swears she will kill him. Louis ignores her, keeps coming onto her. He says everyone thinks Maddie is crazy. He is trying to be with her again sexually, pushes her, she reaches around behind her and grabs a knife, threatening him with it. He grabs her.

    Margo and Dallas knock on the door. Louis says if she says one word about what happened or she will lose Eve and Henry before he answers the door and lets them in.

    Jade is a homewrecker and needs to be killed by the Slasher.

    The rape storyline is being played well by Maddie. Writers covered the bases when demonstrating what can happen when a rape occurs and the aftermath. However as a professional who has counseled such women, the woman often will provide "hints" as to who the attacker is. Maddie knows it is the brotherlaw but continues to not tell or at least hint to a "safe person" who is responsible. Hopefully this terrible situation will resolve soon!

    I loved it when the writers bring back the same people on the show after they have been gone for years. I liked when they brought back Damin,the writers should have kept him on longer. I just didn't like when they brought him back as the bad guy. My favorite story line is Jack and Carly they both keep the viewers guessing. I also loved when they brought back Simon He should shake things up on the show.

    I am hoping Jade wither gets killed by the slasher, or she is the slasher...
    Lewis and Eve are strange acting though!! Lewis did rape Maddie, but could he also be the slasher?

    Yes, Maddie is doing a super wonderful job with ths story line.. I just hope when it's done she and Casey can get back together and be closer. They are good together..

    I Love as the World Turns best soap! I think that will is the Slasher or Lewis. Jade should get off the show she is a homewrecker! And leave Gwen and them alone. Gwen should be only friends Casey because maddie and him belong together. Maddie should face up to Lewis and say he raped her and Maddie should be left alone she been though a lot. carly should got back to Jack some way.
