    How Do I Trump A Dying Kid?

    Monday, February 22 2010
    Damian's body washes ashore, Janet's new plan ruins Carly's and Craig starts a new scheme.

    Holden and Lily meet at Al's so she can apologize for persistently questioning him about Damian. She's realized that he can't have killed Damian and hands him the ring and note Damian supposedly sent her. It was driving her crazy not knowing what happened but now she has closure and he'll be out of their lives forever. "I can start over again," she says. Molly comes in and Holden tells her the news. She hugs him. Lily squints and decides it's time to leave.

    Molly and Holden take a room at the Lakeview. They toast to Damian. He's relieved that he didn't kill him and thanks her for sticking by him. She just wants to see him happy so they can move on together. He peels off her clothes and they climb into bed. After sex, she tells him that she never thought they could be together like this again. They begin talking about Abigail and he says they should go and see her.

    At Lily's, Noah has packed his stuff. Luke wonders if he still wants to leave. Noah insists that he has to learn to do things on his own again. He needs to be able to focus on himself so he can recover. Margo arrives, looking for Lily. She explains that the Maltese authorities contacted her. Remains washed ashore and they've been confirmed as Damian's. The coroner is convinced that there was foul play involved. Weeping, Luke tells her about the last time he saw his father. Margo pays her condolences and leaves. "Luke, I'm right here," Noah says. They sit down. Noah offers to be there for him but Luke asks him not to change his plans. He doesn't want his pity and says that, even if he stayed, he would walk right out as soon as he felt better. "Either you're with me for good, or you're not," Luke says. After Noah leaves, Lily comes in and shows him the note and ring. Her son breaks the news that Damian is dead. She doesn't believe it.

    Margo goes down to the docks and finds a little boy. He tries to run away but she keeps him there for questioning. He tells her about the fight he saw. Lily calls and tells her about the note and Holden seeing him leave. Margo asks her to bring everything down to the station.

    Craig meets with Ellis at the Lakeshore and complains about how business is going. Craig decides that he's going to put everything he has into Monte Carlo. Ellis thinks Craig just wants to get Carly back in bed.

    Outside of the farm house, Janet walks in on Carly before she can explain Janet's affair to Jack. Janet tells her this isn't a good time. Liberty is back in the hospital and might have chicken pox. She explains that they are now planning to have a baby for a bone marrow match. Carly stutters, glares, squints and boggles before declaring she has to go. Once she's gone, Jack asks Janet why she did that. They bicker but she insists there is nothing to argue about. He wonders where the church would stand on this. She points out that a child is a huge commitment and suggests that he would do anything to save Liberty except make a commitment to her. She doesn't know what else to do. He asks her to let him think about it.

    Carly runs to Craig's room and asks him to have dinner with her later. She babbles. He asks her what's going on. "I want a drink so badly I'm crawling out of my skin," she admits. She explains that Jack and Janet want to have a baby. "How do I trump a dying kid?" she asks. He tells her to take it. She's not good at being noble. He tells her this might be a good thing because something always gets in between her reuniting with Jack. Craig thinks she'll make herself crazy pining after Jack when he's devoted to another woman. "What you had is gone," he says. She says it will be gone if he has a baby with Janet. When she cries on his chest, he makes a move on her so she storms out.

    Molly and Holden go to the farm house. Margo arrives and informs them that Damian is dead. Holden's shocked. Molly gulps and gets defensive. Margo explains that she has a witness to the fight. Holden admits there was a fight. Margo has to take him in. Lily and Luke arrive as they go and Lily calls out that he couldn't have been involved.

    Craig arrives at Carly's and finds Jack there. He sarcastically congratulates him on the baby. Jack tells him this is none of his business. They bicker. Craig wonders how he can keep two women on the hook and tells him that children don't save marriages. Jack says he doesn't walk away from his responsibilities. "I'm counting on it," Craig says.

    Janet runs into Carly at the hospital. Carly was dropping something off for Liberty. Janet tells her that she's done enough and she wants her to leave her family alone. "You're spending too much time with my husband and I want it to stop," Janet commands. They bicker and Carly accuses her of destroying her marriage on her own. Janet plays dumb until Carly brings up Dusty.

    Next on As The World Turns:

    Dusty tells Janet he wants her.

    Jack tells Carly there's no reason he shouldn't have a baby.

    Lily tells Molly her plan has blown up.

    Holden may be extradited.

    Yes, finally. Janet will learn not to back Carly in a corner, she will come out swinging, she would have kept that news to herself a while longer , but oh no Janet had to act the fool and it just came out smooth as glass! Nobody puts Carly in a corner!! I know that was corny. Janet throws around all her orders and expects everyone to jump, well the jig is up for you now, she will be hard pressed for anyone to listen to her anymore and they certainly will know exactly the type of christian woman she really is!

    Hate the trouble Holden is in, but of course he will be freed of all charges, too bad Lily and Luke did not keep their mouths shut, oh yea that is not possible for those two,

    Great show today and I loved see Matt from Guiding Light.

    I'll keep my fingers crossed every day that something will happen that will cause Janet and Liberty to exit Oakdale.
    Also hoping Damien is still alive....but he keeps clear of Oakdale. I was routing for Craig and Carly at one time but no more. Jack and Carly always! I hope Dusty gets Johnny because Craig is not cut out to be a father; never was.
    Not so hot on Luke and Noah anymore. Maybe Luke will find another love and Noah returns to the straight life.

    I am so sick of Janet acting like she is holier than thou!! Does she have amnesia and forgot that she slept with Dusty?? She wants Carly to back off, but she gets still spend time with Dusty...I don't think so! I love that Carly threw that in her face, I just can't wait until Jack finds out. I really hope it doesn't backfire onto Carly, she didn't sleep with Dusty.

    I don't understand how Janet can claim to be so religous, and not come clean with her husband about sleeping with
    another man. Doesn't seem fair that Janet should tie up two men, she should be honest with Jack and with herself. If honesty is so important, how can Jack stay with Janet if he loves Carly. seem like a bunch of hyprocrites to me.

    OMG Janet!!!!! Man this woman has some nerve! To tell Carly to leave her family alone. She has helped Liberty whether Janet wants to see it that way or not and as far as Jack goes, the only reason he is with her is because Carly sent him there. I cannot stand Janet. Whenever I see her I find myself yelling at the screen. lol..... Soon Carly and Jack.... soon!

    Janet is just hanging by the tips of her fingers here and Carly is about to loosen the grip!! Janet hates that her daughter loves Carly and had rather spend time with her than her own mother, she hates that her husband loves Carly and had rather spend time with her than his own wife( had it not been for Carly's amazing strength, they would be together, yea Carly) plus she has massive amounts of guilt because even good little christian girl that she is (right) she cannot find any reason whatsoever to committ adultry!! So all in all...she is about to blow and she has the mouth of an evil gator and never knows when to shut up. She would not be in the place she is in right now, if she had not been so very judgemental towards others, mostly Carly!

    Carly so came in for the kill today.....sweet!!

    ***SPOILER TALK***
    Damian the devil isn't dead. (He faked his death). It will be proven soon. He will kidnap Faith. (I don't think he'll live much longer after that. Unless they send him to jail).
    I don't think Janet and Jack will be together much longer. The truth will come out, they will admit their feelings and be with the ones they love. (Jack/Carly; Janet/Dusty).

    This was a great episode. Glad Carly told Janet off. She is a big time hypocrite. Craig has reverted to his old ways. ( I hope he doesn't get away with raiding Parker's trust fund. He did the same thing with Bryant and got away with it). I thought Daniel would be playing a different character. Oh, well, glad to see him again. Holden has been arrested for a crime he didn't commit. I hope Lily and Luke are happy now. Too bad they weren't so concerned or tenacious when Holden disappeard and was presumed dead.

    I'm so furious with Janet right now...I can't even discuss it.

    How nice to see all of the great actors from GL come to ATWT. It would be great if the ptb would see what a great addition they would be to the show and not cancel ATWT. But I don't suppose that will ever happen. But we can hope can't we? I'm waiting for Janet to get her come uppance and I think it will be very soon.
