    You Want My Advice?

    Wednesday, October 22 2008
    Lily and Carly move forward, Holden offers advice to Jack and Aaron, Casey is convinced to join Luke's election campaign and Liberty confronts Jack about his plans for Janet.

    Aaron and Alison meet at The Lakeview. He says he contacted a lawyer and she should have the divorce papers any day. Alison is crushed; he says she wanted this. She asks if they can be friends but he refuses. Alison walks away.


    At Brad's, Janet tells Liberty that she and Jack might be getting married. Liberty is worried that Janet is acting rashly again and warns her that Jack and Carly have a long history. Janet refuses to listen to her and says she can't understand because she is a kid. Liberty goes to school. Janet stares into a mirror and sees herself as one of Liberty's characters from lit class, old and waiting among cobwebs for Jack to be ready to marry her. She screams!



    Luke goes to Java and flirts with Noah. Casey arrives and Luke tells them he is running for president! Noah is shocked and not thrilled. Luke apologizes for not running the idea by him first; Noah says the Gay Film Festival isn't reason enough to add the presidency to his plate. Luke says he isn't doing this just because of the festival; Casey chimes in that Kevin is really popular and it's going to be tough. Luke asks if Casey means he can't win because he is gay! Casey and Noah can't believe how he is overreacting. Alison arrives and they tell her about Luke's plan. Kevin arrives and Luke says he'll have competition in the race now. Kevin says he looks forward to it. Casey worries that Luke doesn't have the right staff; Noah grins and says they have all they need! Luke catches on and says Casey could be their contact with the 'straight' crowds and popular people. Alison thinks it's a good idea, too, but Casey isn't sure he wants to do it. Ian arrives; Luke apologizes to Noah for not filling him in sooner and then goes to talk to Ian. Casey asks why Alison is so invested in Luke's campaign. Mark arrives before she can answer and invites Casey to come to Kevin's campaign rally. He makes a few bigoted comments about Luke and leaves. Casey says he is on Luke's team – as long as Alison is onboard, too! She reminds him that she doesn't attend Oakdale U but Casey says that doesn't matter. He says it would help the Snyder family as a whole. Alison finally agrees to be Casey's spy at Kevin's meetings! Casey tells Luke he'll be the campaign manager and that Alison is going to be their spy.



    Carly sees Lily in a parking lot; she is having car trouble and Carly offers her a ride but Lily refuses. She tries calling Holden but he doesn't answer. Carly returns a while later and offers her a lift. Lily finally accepts. Carly drives her home. Lily hesitates and then invites Carly inside! She finally agrees to come in and then makes small talk. Lily stops her and says she and Holden are taking a leap of faith and trying again. Carly wishes them well and then asks Lily if she can have a second chance, too! She says she needs a friend because of Jack; Lily isn't sure she is ready to be friends again. Carly turns to go but then offers to drive the kids to school if Lily is still having car trouble. Carly gets to the door and Lily says she is willing to try! They talk about Jack; Carly says she was pushing Jack toward Janet because she knows they have no future. Lily asks if she pushed Jack at Janet because she knew, deep down, that Janet wasn't a threat to her! Carly realizes she is right and worries that it may be too late already. She rushes away after Lily tells her to call her to tell her how things went with Jack!



    Alison waits outside Kevin's campaign meeting at Al's; Kevin sees her and invites her in. Mark tells Kevin to hurry up; Alison follows him inside, pretending to be an O-U student. The crowd applauds Kevin and Mark announces that Luke is their competition and makes more bigoted comments about a homosexual being the school president. Kevin tries to stop Mark but he just keeps talking, saying that Luke wants to show gay porn in the quad! Upset, Alison walks out. Kevin finally stops Mark, says Luke is a good guy and that he won't run his campaign on bias.



    Holden tracks down Jack and offers him a bottle of wine in celebration of his return to police work. As they talk, Jack brings up Janet and what she wants from him; Holden says Jack's women friends are always the ones calling the shots. Then, he says Janet is good for Jack and reminds Jack that he can't live at the farm forever. Jack thinks about this and then brings up Carly. Holden says Carly is in his past and he's moving forward with Lily. Jack says he is done with Carly, too, and then wishes Holden luck with Lily. He leaves. Aaron arrives and tells Holden about the divorce papers. Holden asks if Aaron could have lived with Alison, knowing what she did. He says living with Allie is easier than living without her. Holden advises Aaron to avoid Alison at all costs.



    Jack is at work when another officer welcomes him back. Even with all of the paperwork awaiting him, Jack is excited. Liberty walks in the door and says she needs to talk – about Janet! She says Jack has given Janet hope and now he's crushing her because he wants to move in instead of getting married. Jack tells Liberty that he didn't intend to do that and says he likes Janet a lot – but he isn't ready to get married. Liberty brings up Carly and says if Jack isn't ready for forever, he better back off or Janet won't be able to move on. Crying, Liberty begs him to stop. She leaves. Janet calls and Jack overhears a little of the conversation. Janet asks Liberty why she skipped school; Liberty apologizes and swears she is going to school now. Janet realizes she went to see Jack and gets upset. Liberty hangs up and then turns to Jack and leaves. Jack does some paperwork and then Janet calls him. They decide to meet in Old Town. Carly arrives to see Jack but convinces another officer to tell her where Jack went.


    In Old Town, Jack asks Janet if she was talking about marriage before. She says she was and then says it is okay with her if Jack isn't ready for marriage! Jack gets on one knee, tells her to be quiet and then proposes! Carly hears them!

    Alison returns to Java and reports that Kevin's campaign is built on homophobia! Luke and Noah can't believe it. Noah wants Luke to drop out but Luke insists that he has to do this to prove that homosexuals have as many rights as heterosexuals. Casey asks if Alison can spy a little more for them; she says she can do it.

    Holden arrives at the house and can't believe Lily invited Carly in; he says it may have been a good thing. She agrees and says this is proof that they are moving forward.

    Next on As The World Turns:

    Jack can't leave Carly alone.

    Emily's harsh words hurt Dusty; he says they are finished!

    Holden tells Carly to act fast against Janet.

    Margo asks if marriage is really what Jack wants.

    Meg tells Paul to stay away from her!

    I hope Jack and Carly get back together. Tomorrow's episode looks juicy!

    Janet & Dusty have GOT to run into each other soon! They would be a great couple. Jack & Janet just don't fit. Lily & Holden deserve each other - they're characters are not endearing anymore. Emily's character has gotten so trashy - she needs to settle down and give her poor mother a breather from worrying about her daughters. I'm not sure I see the point of Alison's character right now - a trip away for a while would be nice. I'm so sick of Paul & Meg! They're both so pointless they should probably just stay together so they don't ruin any other lives!

    Tomorrow's show definitely looks more interesting but I'll have to watch late. I'm glad Lily and Carly are getting back on track (I hope) but it is still difficult to watch Carly genuflect to the Grand Hypocrite! But whatever it takes to move that s/l along...

    I don't really see a Janet/Dusty connect, but I agree, tmw88, that Alison is useless right now (so is Susan), Emily's character needs to settle down a little (I loved her with Casey for some reason), and Meg should just disappear. I actually like poor Paul.

    I sometimes just pretend to myself that Jennifer's not really dead---Craig and Meg colluded to make it appear that she died, John Dixon is successfully treating her, and soon she will return with Johnny (and Lucy) to Dusty---and kick Craig and Meg to outer space where they belong.....

    I really don't understand why everyone thinks Jack should be with Carly - he is arrow straight and she can't walk a straight line if someone were holding her in place. That's why they always break up - it is always about her stepping off the line. Jack and Janet are good together. She is good to him and for him. No way do I see her with Dusty. With regard to Paul, the writers either need to commit him or get him back in reality. I liked he and Meg together before but a crazy Paul is just annoying and doesn't work with Meg. I can definately see Dusty continuing with Meg under his wing and stepping in to fill the father role for Meg and Pauls child if they keep Paul insane.

    grrr. Why have Jack propose to Janet and then turn around & break her heart and marry Carly. Which we have known for a year now that they would get back together. I love Jack & Janet together. Janet kept telling Carly to let her know if she still wanted Jack. Carly kept telling her no. typical of Carly.

    Jack and Carly are opposites. That's the point. Opposites attract. I do like Jack and Janet together but Jack and Carly belong together--they always will. I really wish they would add some depth to the Alison/Aaron storyline. I don't see her dating Casey and as someone said why is she always going after her sister's leftovers. I hope either Alison or Aaron decide to fight for the marriage! I am waiting for Alison to be pregnant and not knowing who's baby it is (Chris or Aaron)? I don't see Meg and Dusty getting together. There is no way crazy or not Paul will let Dusty be with Meg and raise their baby. He will kill him before that happens. WRITERS PLEASE GET OVER THE CRAZY PAUL S/L! IT IS GETTING OLD!!!!

    Posted by DisneyD at Wednesday, October 22 2008 04:41 PM

    With regard to Jack and Carly, being opposites is fine if you're talking about something like, she's talkative, he's the strong silent type, but when you are talking about where someone's moral compass lies... That is why Jack and Carly should't be together, her compass points south, his points north - Janet is one of the best characters they have added in a long time. Love the actress playing her too! Paul can't hold himself together long enough to make any relationship work, they all fall apart due to his insecurities... Blame James if you will, but Meg won't let him raise the baby unless he gets it together.

    mamapapa,
    I too wish they'd bring back Jennifer - they did it with dusty why not jen?

    Well i guess Janet does have a past history with somebody. I guess that person or should i say her ex is coming to the show. I can't wait. Maybe Jack will come to his sences and go back to Carley .Jack and Carley are meant to be together.I can't wait for them to get back to eachother.....

    I agree with those who think that Jack and Carly should be together. They have real physical chemistry- very hot!! Love though is about more- when Jack is with Janet he talks-he smiles and he laughs. She makes him crazy- but it's usually because she is doing something to try to help him.
    Carly had her time with Jack and she knows that it will all go south again eventually. They both deserve to move on- they'll always care for one another but they should be in new relationships.
    When Carly was being romanced by the Englishman (name?) he didn't come judging her and there were no past betrayals popping up to haunt them. She could be a good hearted and kind woman- and have a sizziling romance- with someone who doesn't have any expectations about the bad things she'll do. Janet makes Jack better because she doesn't just rollover when he starts judging. She finally said I deserve better!! Could be good.
