    Your Plan Backfired.

    Tuesday, February 23 2010
    Holden in arrested, Dusty tells Janet he wants her and Jack makes a choice.

    At the station, Luke, Lily and Molly worry about what Holden and Margo are saying. Molly gets nervous when Lily tells her that she already handed the ring over to the cops.

    In the interrogation room, Margo tells Holden that she can't turn a blind eye to vigilante violence. He insists that he was only protecting himself, but he should have come froward about the fight sooner. She doesn't think the police in Malta will let this go. A cop comes in with proof that the ring and note were faked. She tells Holden to stop talking and get a lawyer. Luke comes in. Holden apologizes. Luke thinks this is just like when they thought he was dead. He asks him if he did it. ''I don't know,'' Holden says. He explains his fight with Damian and claims he left him on board a ship. Luke tells him he shouldn't have lied. He walks out to Margo and requests to see her report on Damian's death.

    Molly runs off to Java to call the jewelry store and make sure they don't rat her out. Lily arrives and confronts her about it, explaining that it's landed Holden in even more trouble. Molly claims she had no choice and accuses Lily of doing nothing but moaning and never caring about Holden. Lily claims she's just trying to be fair. Molly thinks Damian must have brainwashed her and says that what she did, even if it has backfired, is more honorable than anything she's done since Damian came back.

    The women return to the station as Holden is being processed. He says Tom is on the way. Lily wants to talk to him. He asks to speak to Molly first. They go into the interrogation room and he confronts her about the ring. She offers to take the blame for it but he won't let her. She says that Lily's on the warpath so he calls her in. The three of them bicker until Holden sends Molly out. Lily and Holden argue about who has been judging who and he tells her that he stopped believing in her the day she married Damian. She doesn't want him to go to jail for this so they agree to work together. Margo walks in to say that Malta wants to extradite him.

    Luke literally runs into Dr. Reid in the hospital and drops his papers. Reid helps pick them up and notices the photos of the head injury. He asks to look at all of them. After doing so, Reid tells him that the man in the pictures had an advances case of Huntington's disease and would have been nearly a vegetable.

    At the hospital, Jack calls Liberty to tell her he's sending her a DVD player. Dusty runs into Jack in the corridor. Since Jack has never had chicken pox, he can't go into Liberty's room so he sends Dusty in with the DVD player.

    Carly corners Janet in front of the hospital. They argue. Janet insists that Dusty is not her boyfriend. Carly explains that Teri accidentally confirmed it and asks her how she can do this to Jack. Janet insists it only happened once. Carly doesn't care for her excuses and tells her that she knows it's still going. She orders her to tell Jack that their marriage is over or she will. Carly tells her to do the right thing and let him go. Janet doesn't want a lecture on morality from her. They continue to bicker. Janet insists that she still loves Jack and walks away.

    Jack catches Carly before she can walk into Yo's. He apologizes for the whole pregnancy thing and claims it is still in the consideration stage. She can't believe he would seriously consider having a child with Janet just to get a donor. He can't think of an argument against it. She thinks he should think this over and points out what an enormous responsibility a child is. He wishes Brad was still around. She's sure he'll do the right thing.

    When Janet goes into her daughter's hospital room, she finds her punching a punching bag which Dusty brought her. They laugh and then Janet asks him to step outside. She asks him to call her before he comes to see Liberty. She's worried about what Jack will think. He tells her that he wants to be with her and the sooner she admits what she wants, the easier it will be for everyone. ''He's a part time husband at best,'' Dusty says, offering to take care of her and Liberty. Janet doesn't know how she feels, she just wants to get her daughter better. He just wants to help her. She asks him to go away.

    Dusty meets Carly at the Lakeview. She confronts him about Janet. He tells her that Jack is breaking Janet's heart and they don't belong together, even if they are married. They agree that liberty doesn't need support from a screwed up marriage. He's made his offer to Janet and she's thinking it through. Carly already assumed she knows what the answer will be. She tells him about the baby plan.

    Janet goes home. She tells Jack how exhausted she is. He holds her and tells her they should have a baby. She thanks him. They go upstairs. As they sit on the bed, they talk about how messed up things have been between them. She says that what they are about to do is the greatest act of love possible.

    Next on As The World Turns:

    Paul tells Henry their fathers money is now his.

    Henry and Barbara get into bed.

    Mick asks Alison to help him escape.

    Casey looks for Alison and Mick on the roof.

    With the show ending I know the end couple will be Carly and Jack but Carly is still a hypocrite. With how many times she has broke Jack's heart and cheated on him she has no room to talk.

    i can't believe that janet has not told Jack she had slept with dusty. I hope Janet is aready pregnate with Dusty child. It does serves her write.I can't wait until friday when Carley tells Jack everything...

    Janet rushing Jack off to bed to make a baby has not one single thing to do with Liberty, it has every thing to do with the fact that she is going to try every thing known to man to keep Jack and Carly apart!! Hope it blows up in her hypocritical face and she ends up losing both Jack and Dusty! Please Jack come to your senses before she plays you for a fool, most people it takes a time or two at least to get pregnant, but not in soapland, it is a given, one time and bam you are going to have a baby!!

    Loved that Molly put Lily in her place today, pray that Holden sees Lily for what she is and sticks with Molly...

    Dr. Reid just might have saved the day, at least he proved good for something! Maybe that will free Holden, I am sure Margo will have some stupid reason to keep him for the rest of his life. I will not miss her bad cop acting when the show ends..

    Dear writers, you might want to do a little research before you write your scripts. The country in which a crime occurs is the only country that can prosecute the crime. If someone is killed on a dock in a certain state in the U.S., that state is the only entity that can prosecute (unless the crime is considered to be Federal). So, if a Maltese citizen is murdered in the U.S., the prosecuting country is the U.S., and Malta cannot demand that anyone be extradited. They can ask the U.S. to intervene, gather evidence, or try the case, but they can't bring Holden to Malta and try him for a crime that was committed in the U.S.

    Even though Carly has betrayed Jack more times than we can count, it doesn't excuse Janet's behavior either. She claims to be such a christian women, but she goes off and sleeps with another man, pretends to not have feelings for Dusty when clearly she does, and then sleeps with Jack to get pregnant to keep Jack and Carly apart. I really do hope that Janet is already pregnant with Dusty's baby, but we all probably won't find out until the very end. But I think that Jack and Carly will ultimately end up together.

    So glad to see Lily put in her place, I do not like this Lily and was very disappointed to see the old Lily go...

    Isn't this show slated to end in September? If so, there won't be enough months for a Janet-Jack, or even a Janet-Dusty baby to be born at full term. Hopefully by then they will have solved the problem of a donor, and the poor girl will survive.

    Wow, dramaqueen,
    you are way smarter on the US laws that even Margo!! She makes my head hurt she is so dumb on this show..glad you explained how the law works on that. I never could figure how he was dumped in the water in Oakdale and two days later ended up in Malta!

    This is soapland, so we know that you can have a baby in as few months as it takes to have a story line, so in that case they will have Janet deliver in about another two months. Such a bunch of silliness isn't it? Most viewers think that she is already pregnant by Dusty, now maybe that would finally get Jack's attention and he would see that maybe she is not all she is cracked up to be, she has pushed the being a christian card just a bit too far for me, she is a first class fraud, no wonder her parents want no part of her.

    can't wait to watch janet and dusty scenes from today

    Posted by golflover at Tuesday, February 23 2010 01:53 PM

    Jack needs to wake up about Janet & Dusty(they should be together, anyway) Isn't the girl playing Liberty leaving the show? So does she die or just go to N.Y. for her career? Lily sure had that coming!! She can't seem to make up her mind about who she wants to be with or maybe it just has to be someone, anyone!!

    I hope Luke tells Holden what Dr. Reid said about those photos.

    (Possible Spoiler)...I guess this is the beginning of a relationship between Dr. Reid and Luke.

    I was glad Holden told Lily he stopped believing in her the day she married Damian.

    "Not Enough Time" - ATWT will probably flash forward one year just like GL before they went off the air.
