    Second chances

    Thursday, September 21 2006
    Tom refuses to let Emily take Daniel away, Meg talks Jack into giving it a second chance with Carly, and Emily asks Henry for the unthinkable!

    Tom speaks with Meg, who asks him for help. Tom thinks that she's not telling him the whole story regarding Emily and wants to know what they did to cause her meltdown. She tells Tom that she told Emily that she was engaged and that was when she flipped out. Tom explains that Paul was telling Emily that he and Meg were not that close, and this is probably why she flipped out. Meg doesn't believe it, but Tom reminds her of Paul's history of deceit. Tom leaves and Meg dashes off to see Jack.

    Jack angrily chops wood at the farm as he thinks back to his talk with Carly.

    Later, Meg pays Jack a visit and he tells her the bad news. Carly and he are divorced. Meg implores him to do something about things with Carly and jokes that he should grovel! He is in no mood to joke, and tells her that. She asks him if he can start over and do it right this time. She tells him, "Jack, get her back or we won't have anymore trees!" She tries to get him to listen to her and he listens to her, telling her he's going to give things another shot!

    Gwen and Carly talk about Gwen's marital issues with Will. She is upset that she can never have his baby but that Jade can; she loves him but wishes she didn't. Gwen changes the subject when she sees Carly's divorce decree. Because of the decree she compares her situation to Carly's situation, but Carly tells her that "God forbid you should ever end up like me!"
    Carly goes on to tell Gwen that Jack is the forgiving one, just like she is. Gwen thinks about it and wonders that she may be able to get over the fact that Will slept with Jade, but is unsure if she can get over that they will have a child together. She doesn't feel strong enough for this. Carly gives Gwen advice, to move on and one day she may feel stronger!
    Will comes to the door as they talk. Gwen tells him she doesn't want to talk to him, but he is there to see Carly. She leaves to go talk to Casey and Will implores Carly to help get Gwen back. She tells him that it's not going to happen and explains that if Gwen is talked into staying with him that it won't last. She shares what she told Gwen, to be self- sufficient, strong, work on herself, and asks that he do the same. She laughs to herself that she is giving marital advice!

    Simon gives Carly a call. She's late, and he wonders where she is. She tells him she's on the way and leaves.

    At the hospital, Mike and Katie argue that Mike didn't know he was supposed to go in with Katie to the fertility clinic. She tells him that they both need to get checked out, not just her. She goes on to explain that he hasn't fathered a child in years and should be checked out. She wants to be sensible but he feels that she is being controlling, and he's miserable. Katie is extremely upset as Mike storms off.

    Emily shows up at Margo's place to ask who called Tom. She hasn't a clue and visits with her son Daniel for a while. Tom comes in and Margo leaves Tom and Emily alone and the two discuss her leaving town. He tells her that Meg has already told him. She tells him that she can't trust Paul and once she is settled he can visit Daniel whenever he wants. He tells her that she will always be his family but Daniel can't go with her. Tom feels that they're a team, but he needs to think about what is best for Daniel. Margo comes back and Emily apologizes for the disturbance and tells them she knows they take good care of Daniel. She leaves for a doctor's appointment. After Emily leaves, Margo asks what that was all about and he explains.

    Emily is outside at Tom and Margo's when she calls Henry to meet her.

    Henry gets off the phone and is greeted by Simon, who asks that they get together soon to catch up. He gives his condolences to Henry.

    Later, Emily meets with Henry, asking him for help in leaving the country with Daniel.

    Simon meets with Carly who tells her she is beautiful, no matter how much she sneers at him! She ignores him and talks business, and when he presses her, she tells him that they agreed to keep it all business for now. She is angry that the design budget is cut and has to leave, because she has forgotten the paint charts. Simon tells her that he will go get the paint charts.

    Gwen and Casey sit outside and talk but are interrupted by Will who has followed her. She tells him that they can't solve things and he asks her to remember their vows. Gwen reminds him that he is the one who has forgotten them. Gwen tells Casey that Jade is pregnant with Will's baby. An upset Will leaves while Casey comforts Gwen.

    In the kitchen at the farmhouse, Meg makes a phone call, explaining how things didn't go well with her talk about Emily.

    Jack arrives at Carly's door with flowers!

    Next on As The World Turns:

    Carly and Simon argue about who is going to get the paint chips.

    Jade comes by to see Gwen.

    I don't think that the baby is Wills either. If Emily steals Daniel I hope they catch and this time throw her in jail and throw the Key away. She should not be able to walk the streets after all the crap she's pulled. I hope Jack and Carly can work things out. If Katie isn't carefull she will lose Mike. And end up alone again.

    I cannot stand Meg. Where does she get off telling Tom about Emily's 'meltdown'? Meg is always trying to undermine Emily. Meg is jealous of Emily if she weren't she could ignore her. Whenever Emily has been in the hospital Meg sees her one-on-one and bullys her. Meg is a nurse and instead of seeing Emily at all she should steer clear of her. Meg is opening herself up for another dismissal. I have forgotten....does Tom have legal custody of Daniel, if he doesn't Emily would be within her rights to take her son. Maybe the 'perfect storm' will hit before she has a chance to pick up Daniel. The main thing Emily is guilty of is bad judgement and lack of trust in herself.

    As far as Jade is concerned.....what she said the last time she was at Luke's home really caught my attention. Holden was not happy she was there holding Ethan(?). She was upset because of Holden's reaction and as she was leaving she said something to the affect 'that's okay, I know what I have to do now'. The next time we saw her she announced that she was pregnant. I too would like to know where she was when she walked away from Will on that trail at Raven Lake and was not seen for hours. I hope Jade doesn't hook up with Dallas, he seems like a really good guy. She has a friend that tells her like it is and that is Luke.

    Why would anyone feel sorry for Emily? Yeah Paul is a huge jerk, but she is no prize. She had an affair with Tom, while he was still married to Margo. She wasn't that great to Hal either, leaving him like she did. So Paul gave her a push towards the looney bin, but she needs to take responsibility for her actions. Yeah Jack, it is about time he figured it out, now lets hope Carly doesn't screw it up. Jade definitely is lying and is probably trying to figure out how to get pregnant. Gwen is young, maybe she should just cut her loses and move on. Katie needs to figure it out before she ends up divorced again.

    Qwen needs a break now. so does Will. Let them be togeter

    I hate Jade, I wishes she just falls off the face of the earth.
    Now that I have gotten that out.
    I do not even think Jade is pregnant, I think that she is only saying that because she is a lonely, broke and pathetic gold digger only after Wills trust fund. If it turns out that she is pregnant I hope that it turns out to be that other guys or ends up having a miscarriage. I know….it sounds cruel but Gwen and Will belong together, she and Casey really duked it out before, I think that it is great that they are friends now and all but they do not need to hook back up. And what did Mattie do to deserve this let her have her man back. Oh and Carley needs to make Jack really pay for walking out on her but eventually take him back.

    And LORD!I hope Jade is not going to try and steal Lukes baby brother and pass him of as her and Wills baby? That would just not work, but they do crazy things on these stories that have me and the rest of the fans sitting on the edges of our seats.
