    Craig Visits With Johnny

    Thursday, November 02 2006
    Dusty reluctantly hands Johnny over to Craig; Gwen tells Adam if he believes a word Jade says she doesn't want to have anything to do with him; Lucinda urges Lily to throw Jade out on her "derriere."

    At the dorms, Will and Gwen leave to go to the studio. While they're on their way out, they run into Adam. Adam tells Gwen, "You have more than a dream, you have talent." Will makes Adam an offer he can't refuse when he tells him he wants to make Gwen a demo, and he conveys he'll fork out the money it will take. He likes the idea, and tells Will if he's serious about "footing the bill" then they should get started, and he confirms that he will be Gwen's producer. Gwen is so excited that she jumps up and down.

    Things change when Adam tells them there's one more thing... they must put up with Jade. He goes on to tell them Jade told him everything, but shortly after Adam conveys what Jade said to him, Gwen's excitement immediately turns to anger! Gwen tells Adam if he believes a word Jade says she doesn't want to have anything to do with him, and she asks him to leave.

    Just moments after Adam leaves, Gwen is even more upset. She expresses to Will that she can't believe she just done that. "I just threw it all away," she tells Will. She goes on to say Adam was her best shot and now she's ruined everything! Will comforts Gwen, and he informs her that Adam is not the only producer. He tells her they will find another one.

    At Lily's place, Lucinda tells Lily about Jade showing up at the party. Lucinda urges Lily to throw Jade out on her "derriere." When Jade comes in, Lily confronts Jade about going to the party, and Jade tells Lily she had no intention of going, but a guy talked her into it. However, Jade failed to mention the "guy" was Adam. Instead, Jade tells Lily she met Adam at the party.

    Lucinda steps in and warns Lily that Jade is a liar, then Lucinda tells Jade just what she thinks of her. Before Lucinda leaves, she tells Lily that Jade has her wrapped around her finger.

    After Lucinda leaves, Jade enlightens Lily by telling her Adam is just a one-time thing, and she won't see him again. Soon after, Ethan begins to cry, and Lily leaves the room to go check on him. As soon as Lily leaves the room, the doorbell rings. Jade tells Luke it must be Lucinda coming back for "round two." Jade answers the door and finds herself looking at Adam and not Lucinda.

    Mike anxiously awaits the results of Katie

    At Lakeview, Katie tells Mike how she's been feeling lately, and Mike wonders if she may be pregnant. Mike's phone rings, so he leaves to take the call. As soon as Mike leaves, Vienna shows up and sits down with Katie. Vienna tells Katie Simon left them for Carly. Katie gives the impression that she doesn't care what Simon does with his love life, and she goes on to say she may be pregnant and have a bestseller on the list. With all of this on her plate, she tells Vienna she doesn't need Simon.

    As Katie starts to leave, Vienna stops her and tells her she saw Simon and Carly together in their suite. Then she tells Katie, "They were burning with love for each other. You could feel the heat a mile away." Katie's tune changes and she asks Vienna if what she saw was sex. Vienna confirms and describes the scene. Katie appears to be jealous.

    Not long after, Mike comes back into the dining room and Vienna leaves. Before leaving, Vienna gives Katie a hug and tells her to be brave. Mike senses from Katie's look that something's wrong, and he asks her about it. Katie tells him it's nothing, and then Mike tells Katie his phone call was a job offer in Chicago. Katie gets upset and tells Mike he can't leave her. She tells mike if she's pregnant she's going to need him around. Mike suggests they go to the drug store to get a pregnancy test and find out for sure.

    Later, Mike waits anxiously for Katie to come out of the bathroom to reveal the results of the pregnancy test. He keeps asking her how much longer it will be, and when she finally comes out she has a look of disappointment on her face.

    Carly is talking on the phone with Simon when she hears someone knocking on her door. She goes to answer the door and says, "Jack." Carly invites him in and tells him she'll be a moment, because she's on the phone. Simon knows now that Jack is there Carly can't talk, so he tells Carly he'll do the talking and she can listen. Simon tells Carly he's going to get rid of the diamonds, and then meet with her the way they did last night, but he says this time they will be rolling in money. "How does that sound?" Simon asks Carly. Carly tells him she'll have to check her schedule and get back to him.

    After Carly ends her phone call, Jack tells her he believes she's in trouble, and then he asks her why she went with the prince last night. Carly tells Jack she was "flattered" by the prince, but she goes on to say the prince isn't her type. Jack appears to be jealous, and he tells Carly she shouldn't turn to a stranger. Carly asks Jack whom she should turn to, and he replies, "You can turn to me."

    Carly senses Jack wants more and asks him if he thinks there's a chance for them. "That would depend on whether or not Simon is out of the picture. Is he? Don't forget to rinse those dishes first," Jack divulges and then leaves.

    Soon after Jack leaves, Simon shows up. He shows Carly a suitcase full of money. Carly asks about the money, and Simon tells her Spero is paid in full, and this money is leftovers for them to fix the apartments up with. While the two share in their enthusiasm over the money, Jack is watching from outside. When Jack knocks on the door Carly gets nervous and orders Simon to put the money away. Once the money is hid, Carly opens the door. Jack enters and tells Simon he wants to speak to Carly alone.

    While Dusty and Lucy are talking, Emily comes up to them and reveals some bad news to Dusty. "Craig is up to something, and it may be far worse than what he pulled last night," Emily discloses. Since Emily now has Dusty and Lucy's full attention, she continues by advising Dusty to take Johnny and leave.

    As soon as Emily leaves, Dusty grabs Johnny and prepares to take him as far from Craig as he can. On his way out, Dusty tells Lucy he will call her from the road. However, before Dusty can get out the door, Tom and Craig stop him. Tom tells him he can't leave, because it will violate the order. Therefore, Tom orders Dusty to give Johnny to Craig. Dusty refuses to hand Johnny over to Craig. Tom informs Dusty that he has no choice, because Craig has the legal right to visit with his son for a couple hours. Lucy asks her father, "How can you be so cruel." Craig tells them to just make the transaction simple and give Johnny to him. Dusty refuses, but an officer steps forward and warns Dusty he will be arrested if he doesn't follow the order. Dusty still refuses to give Johnny to Craig, and Craig tells Dusty he will have him arrested. Craig goes on to tell Dusty that wouldn't look good in a custody battle. Before Dusty can respond, a furious Lucy confronts her dad. Lucy tells Craig she can't believe he'd hurt Johnny like that.

    After Lucy finishes scolding her dad, Dusty reluctantly hands Johnny over to Craig, and then Dusty and Lucy leave. Craig tells Tom he's going to take Johnny to see Margo, but Tom tells Craig that's not a good idea, because Margo isn't happy with Craig right now. Craig tells Tom to take the day off so he can spend time with his son alone.

    After Tom leaves, Emily approaches Craig and says, "So, you got what you wanted."

    "Not quiet, there's one more thing you're going to do for me," Craig responds.

    Dusty and Lucy talk about Craig, and Lucy tells him since Craig is playing by the rules there has to be a way they can deny him access to Johnny. "There is, and you're it," Dusty tells Lucy.

    Next on As the World Turns...

    Jack asks Carly if she's with Simon or not, and Carly informs Jack that her relationship with Simon is "strictly business."

    Dusty tells Lucy prison is the only thing that will stop Craig, and then he tells her she's the one who can put him there.

    What is with the delay in getting this posted?!!? it used to be posted between 2:30 and 3pm.

    Lily is such a fool. Does she not remember the stunts Rose pulled on her in trying to take Holden away from her. It wasn't like they were that close contrary to what she thinks. She should be concentrating on her own family and helping Luke deal with his sexuality and preparing him on what he will be dealing with in the future. She just came out of a coma and I think she lost some of her gray matter. She ig going to regret this big time. Jade is a big liar and she has no intention of changing. She is going to continue to cause problems for Gwen and Will. Send her butt out of town.

    Skirby77, All of updates are due in by 6:00pm ET at the very latest. We're still the earliest at posting our updates in comparison to most sites, if this helps!

    I am just hoping that Craig is walking across a street (without jonny) and a bus runs over him, backs up and goes again. And what is with Tom (mr. law himself) working with Craig. Margo needs to kick her husbands butt and find a reason to send Craig to prison for life.

    well we all know carly she has to be into something bad all the time I think it keeps her adrinaline going. I think jade just needs a family around her because of the way she grew up, that would help her become who she really is. Childhood tramas can effect your adult life. I think she just wants to be loved. I like simon and carly togeather they both like excitement. Whats up with hughs being craigs lawyer I remember when craig was with lucindas daughter years ago and he was so nice.

    Posted by rdlymom1 at Thursday, November 02 2006 04:03 PM

    Craig was a bad boy when he was young and then he seemed to get nice. I can't for the life of me understand why there has to be so many evil personalities. We need a new Bob and Kim and I thought Margo and Tom were almost there and now he is helping Craig pull off nasty things (just above illegal)

    Posted by gemini030 at Friday, November 03 2006 06:34 AM

    What are they doing letting Tom be Craig's lawyer??This will eventually put a strain on Tom and Margo's marriage, one of the only long lasting couples around besides Kim and Bob. Why couldn't he get that guy that kept Emily from going to jail. But on the other hand i'm glad to be seeing more of Tom and Margo. They were kept on the back burner far to long. Poor Dusty, having to give the baby to Craig. He needs to get with Emily, she is not a mouse like that Lucy. She could help him raise Johnny and she is crafty enough to help him deal with Craig.

    I can't believe that Carly does see that Jack is totally in love with her. I understand that she wanted Jack to have a taste of his own medicine but....she needs Jack...she must see that Simon (although some sexy) is bad news.....I can't wait to see Jack & Carly back together...and Simon on his way out of Oakdale...

    And this Craig dude...I wasn't a ATWT fan when he was on before but man...what a snake!!! And Emily is so stupid listening to his ravings....and Emily please stay away from him...or Paul is gone forever....

    Oh, Dusty needs to get a job or something...and he needs to remember who Lucy is!!

    I'd really like to see Jack and Carly back together again. But, I think the twist with Simon is amazing. I like to see Katie jealous. Mike is such a good guy it would be horrible if their marriage were destroyed. BUT time will only tell. I just wish Dusty and Jennifer were still around. I don't get why Jennifer had to go.

    Posted by vickster01 at Friday, November 03 2006 11:42 AM

    Simon is HOT, and you can't blame Carly for being charmed by him. However, he isn't someone I'd want as a stepfather for my kids. Jack and Carly have that "on screen" chemistry and no matter who they are with they always should end up back together at some point. I didn't like it when Julia came to town and messed around with Jack and Holden---that whole storyline drove me crazy watching it. I was really glad when Julia was killed off the show, and her brother got lost too. My opinion of Mike went downhill when he was so self-righteous and made such an issue out of honesty with Jennifer, then turned around and ended up in bed with Katie and Jennifer caught them. Thanks to them she almost lost her life and the baby, and would have had it not been for Dusty. So Mike and Katie deserve each other because they both make me sick to watch them especially after Jennifer died and Mike never acted like she was much more than a mere acquaintance. So they can both mosey on out of town as far as I'm concerned---no big loss.
