    Mick Isn't Here.

    Monday, February 15 2010
    Mick crashes Casey and Alison's wedding and holds everyone hostage.

    At home, Margo is doing up Tom's bow tie and worrying about the wedding. She wonders if she should tell her son that Mick is on the loose. Casey comes in and they take pictures. Tom jokingly tells him not to screw this up. Casey hopes his marriage can be as strong as theirs.

    Barbara rushes into Fairwinds to find out what happened between Paul and Mick. Paul tells her that Mick isn't a problem anymore and, no, he didn't kill him. They bicker and he asks her to stop obsessing about this and stay away form the wedding.

    Paul runs into Emily outside of Fashions as she picks up a dress for Ali. He wonders if she regrets not having an extravagant wedding... they kiss.

    Kim shows up at the hospital to drag Bob to the wedding. Dr. Oliver stops by to complain about patients. Bob tells Kim about Reid putting Henry into quarantine. The doctors begin bickering and Bob orders him to start respecting their standards.

    At Katie's, Henry complains to her about Reid. She laughs and wonders why he's so obsessed. He says he's only trying to protect her. She likes Reid and tells Henry he's being annoying. Shoving him out the door, she announces that she is not going to the wedding with him. Reid shows up once Henry's gone and she tells him what just happened. He takes the ice cream vat out of her hands and announces that they are going to the wedding together. He wants to prove to Bob that he's not a total jerk so that he can get out of the more menial work at the hospital.

    Henry shows up at Barbara's and asks her to the wedding. She doesn't think she should be her rebound date while Paul is angry with her. He tells her she should go and prove she has nothing to be ashamed of. She hurries off to dress. A moment later, she walks out and he's stunned. "You'd upstage the bride," he says. She asks him to zip her up and she giggles as he does it.

    Alison goes into the church. Mick strides over to sarcastically congratulate her. She asks if it's him or James talking. "Mick isn't here," he says, brandishing a gun and announcing that he has some scores to settle. They hear people arriving. She convinces him to go to the tower and wait for her. When he walks off, she rushes out and tells her sister that Mick is there and he has a gun. Emily calls Margo and tips her off. She tells them to run. Alison goes up to the tower instead. She claims that she wants to be with Mick and help him break James' hold on him. When she kisses him, he pushes her off. Margo rushes in with some cops and arrests him.

    Paul arrives outside of the church. Emily runs out to him and tells him that Mick has been arrested. They go inside. "Don't worry son. I forgive you," Mick tells Paul. Alison says Mick needs help. Paul thinks he needs to be pushed off a cliff. Alison explains what Mick told him about being brainwashed. Casey decides that it might be wise to postpone the wedding. She refuses to wait another day and hugs him close.

    As the cop drives Mick over to the station, Mick begins to yell and fake a seizure. They pull over. Mick attacks the cop then steals his keys and cuffs him. After grabbing his gun, he runs off.

    Susan and Emily help Alison get dressed. Margo comes in and tells them Mick is on his way to the station and they have nothing to worry about.

    Bob and Kim are in the chapel talking to Lisa. Tom and Casey come over and they all discuss the police coming by. Tom downplays everything. Katie and Dr. Oliver arrive. Bob's impressed that he's stopped by. When they turn around, Henry and Barbara arrive. As everyone sits down, the music begins to play and Alison starts down the aisle. At the altar, Casey thanks her for making him a better person and nervously runs through all of the things he loves about her, like her honesty. She admits that she's made mistakes but promises to make him happy for the rest of his life. Margo suddenly runs off. Paul and Emily go up to read a passage from Shakespeare. As soon as Paul open his mouth, Mick storms in and shoots him. Reid and Bob gather around Paul. Mick orders everyone to throw their phones on the floor. He yells at Henry to stop trying to escape. Barbara is sure that not even James would stand by to watch Paul die. Paul asks Mick to let everyone go so they can sort things out alone. Margo calls Mick after finding the cop in his car. She tells him to leave now. He tells her that if he sees a cop outside, he'll start killing hostages. "I'm in a room full of hypocrites who act like I'm the only criminal that Oakdale has ever seen!" he yells. Bob asks Mick to let the women go. Kim refuses to leave him. Mick says no one is leaving. Bob has a stroke and collapses. Everyone begs Mick to let Bob go. He agrees to let some of the hostages go. Everyone bickers over who should leave. Susan and Reid leave with Bob, Lisa and Kim, Tom, the minister and Katie.

    Outside, Tom fills Margo in on what's happened. She calls Mick and asks him to let Paul go. He refuses and tells her that he's not negotiating any more. He just wants 'quality time' with his family.

    At the hospital, Susan checks Kim over and then leaves to check on her daughters. Bob explains to his wife how he faked the stroke to get out. "I just thought, what would Dr. Oliver do?" he says.

    Back inside, Casey begs Mick to end this. Mick points his gun at him and challenges him to follow through on the 'hero act'. Alison tries to talk Mick down. Barbara offers to help him. "What makes you think I want to go anywhere with an old sex kitten like you?" he asks. He begins mocking Emily and says she would have believed in the tooth fairy if she thought it would get her a baby. Alison begs him to be a good man and hand over the gun. He doesn't want to be psychoanalyzed by a 'porn queen' and then tells her to pick who he'll kill first. When Casey defends her, Mick blows up and blurts out that he slept with Alison.

    Next on As The World Turns:

    The hostage situation continues.

    Henry gets beaten down after attempting to defends Barbara.

    Excellent show today! Can't wait to see what happens next! I feel really badly for Allie. I hope she and Casey still get married. I know I am in the minority here...but, I love them together. I really do feel that Mick/James hypnotized her somehow. She really did not want to have sex with him...or any relationship other than as a friend and nurse. But, he is very powerful. I think she would be someone that is easy to hypnotize with her history of always wanting to please, and never wanting to say no. She said no to Mick...and, she meant it. I hope Casey understands. And, I hope all of the truth about Mick/James comes out...including the flashy thingy. I hope we learn more about that.

    I agree, Earthmom, it just never seemed right the hold that Mick had over Allison. Maybe Casey will see it that way and let it go. Love them together and they have been thru enough, thought for sure they would make it this time!

    While I love Tom P. I am ready for some Jack and Carly♥ time here.....something light and fun and it is so much fun to me to see them together at last, will be even better when they are rid of Janet and together full time and live happily ever after...and for you doubters that think that cannot happen..........shame on you!!

    It seems that people are not interested in this storyline, they never have many comments. This James Stenbeck storyline has gotten old, time to change and find another patsy. Jack and Carly need to get together and let Janet and Dusty move on with their lives.

    I have to disagree. I thought todays show was awful! Please tell me why katie is mad at henry for hiring a detective to learn more about reids background? HELLO Katie!! Wake up you do not even know reid!!! She needs a big dummy slap!!! And why did it seem like no one cared what happened in the church once they were all free??? Lisa needed a drink? Ummm isn't casey her grandson? And did u see the face susan made, when they told her to go call and check on her daughters? It looked like she was being inconvienced!!! Are Oakdale residents so used to gun wielding maniacs it doesn't faze them anymore???? I hope tomorrows better! Altough I didn't see jack or carly in the preview!!!

    Posted by shorty1943 at Monday, February 15 2010 01:53 PM

    iheartcarly(love the name) never gave it much thought, but you nailed it about no one caring about loved ones locked up with a nut with a gun! Excellent points..I was just thinking earlier that I did not remember seeing Jack and Carly♥ in tomorrows previews, rats!!

    Katie is mad at Henry because she is an idiot...all there is to it, made not one ounce of sense. I am sure that Barbara and Henry won't end up together and do not know if I want them to, but I hope that he walks off and leaves Katie standing, tells her to call her wonderful Dr. Reid!! Barbara looked so very pretty today!

    I liked the points made on this episode. It sounds like a good one and I'll watch it online. You'd think that Susan and others would have acted differently, since we rarely see them. It's the writers. They foisted this fake James Stenback on us and are dragging it out. I'm a fan of Casey and Allison. I hope they get past this and get married. Carly and Jack will be on later this week.

    ****SPOILER TALK****

    I read on soapcentral later on that Janet will be pregnant. I sincerely hope not. If she becomes pregnant, Dusty will be the father. He was the last man she slept with. Unless Jack slips up now and sleeps with her, then there will be confusion.

    No, no Lara, Jack and Janet slept together after new years. soon enough after she and dusty did to cause confusion.. I believe. he came home. said he was sorry. they went up stairs... at the time it was the slam dunk indicator that they were going the pregnancy route

    I hope Casey forgives Alli. They belong together. Get rid of this Mick guy - stupid storyline. Get rid of Janet and let Jack and Carly get back together.

    Did Vienna actually leave the show? I liked Henry with her. It is kinda sick pairing up Henry with Barbara - she is his half-brother's mother. Eeewwww.

    Posted by iheartcarly at Monday, February 15 2010 09:58 PM

    @ 2kitties, LMBO about Henry and Barbara! Remember Ali is marrying the brother of her nephew/brother. Lol
