    Ulterior Motives.

    Friday, February 26 2010
    Craig hatches a plan to get Carly, Dusty helps Liberty to keep Janet from having a baby, and Carly spills the beans about Janet's affair to Jack!


    Parker goes downstairs to notice a jittery Carly cleaning. After he leaves, a distracted Carly flashes back to Janet informing her she is having a baby with Jack. Craig interrupts and she asks him why he can't take no for an answer. He boasts he has a solution for her problems with Jack and suggests that they move to New York! Craig tries to persuade her that the best designers and distributors are in New York. Carly doesn't want to uproot her life and family, but he reminds of her of Jack and Janet having a baby together. They are interrupted with a call from Jack, but Carly doesn't answer. Craig thinks she isn't over Jack, but begs her to think about New York and leaves.



    Jack and Janet make small talk at the farm. Janet is nervous about Liberty's immune system. Jack promises she'll pull through and Janet comments how nice it is to be with him. She thinks they will get used to one another again. She gives him a small kiss before leaving for the hospital.



    At the hospital, Liberty overhears Dusty talking about her on the phone. After pressing him, he admits he heard of a special study for leukemia patients in Minnesota. Janet arrives and is frustrated to see Dusty. He asks her to meet him in the waiting room. She steps aside with him, and he tells her he is upset she is having a baby with Jack. He then fills her in on the study and thinks it is a better solution than having a baby with Jack. Janet thinks Dusty is jealous and reminds him she is Jack's wife, but Dusty remarks she doesn't have to be! He then gives Janet the information on the study before he leaves.



    Parker visits a visibly frustrated Liberty in the hospital. She admits her head is itchy and it is a sign of losing hair. Parker offers to bring her popcorn for a movie night. She fills him in on Dusty's study he found in Minnesota. He is crushed when she tells him she wants to go alone. He then sets up her laptop and shows her a live feed he set up to communicate when he isn't around. She doesn't want him to see how bad she will look. Parker tells her she will always be pretty and sweetly pulls her in for a hug.



    Janet enters Liberty's room and they discuss the study in Minnesota. Liberty really wants to try it and Janet promises to go with her and be supportive.



    Janet meets Jack in Old Town and informs him of the study in Minnesota and how Liberty can be treated immediately. She reminds him he can't go because of his chicken pox. Jack assures her everything will be fine. She still doesn't want to give up on the baby and kisses him good-bye.



    Carly heads to fashions for retail shopping therapy. While she's trying on clothes, she spies Jack and Janet talking. After seeing them kiss, she begins shaking and accidentally falls over! After knocking everything over, she tells the clerk she'll pay for the dress she's wearing later and runs out. Jack enters and the attendant tells him that Carly left wearing the dress!


    Craig calls his attorney, Ellis, to discuss giving more money to Carly to sweeten the business deal. Ellis informs him that he couldn't finance socks!


    Parker goes to see Craig at his Lakeview suite and asks for money from his trust fund to visit Liberty. He tells Craig about Liberty going to Minnesota. Craig slyly tells him he has inspired him and no amount of money should be spared on the ones you love!



    A frustrated Carly returns home and begins talking to herself. She is upset for making a fool of herself. She has a vision of Jack and Janet celebrating their new baby's first birthday together. Her nightmare includes her arriving drunk and Jack telling her to go away and not come back! After she snaps out of it, she calls Craig and tells him she's ready to talk about New York!



    Janet and Liberty arrive and settle into her room in Minnesota. Liberty thinks Janet should go ahead and check into the hotel. They are shocked when Dusty arrives and offers her a ride! Dusty tells them he had to follow and make sure everything was okay. Janet pulls him into a hug and thanks him!



    Craig meets with Ellis at the Lakeview. Craig suggests that they use Parker's trust to finance Monte Carlo! Ellis thinks it is a bad idea, but Craig has no doubt he can pull it off.



    While resting in bed, Liberty is upset when she pulls a chunk of hair out of her hand. Parker calls her on the computer, but she lies that her computer isn't working so he can't see her.



    Dusty escorts Janet back to the hotel. She admits she has no idea what she wants when it comes to Dusty. She thanks him for his help with Liberty. Dusty asks her not to have a baby with Jack and then orders her to rest.



    Jack arrives at Carly's and asks her about the dress. She explains it was a misunderstanding and then shocks him with the news that she is moving to New York! Jack doesn't want to lose the kids, but Carly reminds him that he made promises to her that he can't keep and it is torturing her. Jack doesn't want her to leave, so she seductively asks him to help her unzip her dress so it can be returned! He moves in close and begins to unzip the dress. The sexual tension is undeniable and they begin to kiss. Jack eventually pulls away and yells that he can't betray Janet. Carly sarcastically laughs and informs him that his faith-driven wife has been cheating on him with Dusty!



    Next on As The World Turns:

    Holden tells Lily that Damian has something else up his sleeve as she worries he might come after her!

    Damian says, "I am the only one who can keep your mother safe."

    Jack angrily tells Carly, "This doesn't change anything!"

    Dusty gets down on one knee and asks Janet to marry him. Janet faints into Dusty's arms!

    I sincerely hope this Jack/Janet/Carly/Dusty crud is over soon. The writing in the past week or so has been horrible and very obvious that it was done after the cancellation news. It's like there are 3 different writers penning the same scene without talking to each other. For the love of Pete, just let Jack & Carly be together and let Janet/Dusty have their own storyline. This show IS ending and longtime CarJack fans deserve better than this.

    On the other hand, as much as I HATE Craig(especially with Carly) at least today's actions seemed more like the Craig the fans used to know. The arrogant schemer whose plans are sure to backfire but will be fun to watch; not that wimpy "redeemed" crud they tried to sell us before. I really hope they bring back Sierra for him in the end, maybe to facilitate a reunion with Lucy, who could then do a Dusty/Janet/Lucy triangle. How cool would that be; especially if Janet does turn out to have his kid and he falls for her truly.

    Where is johnny while craig is chasing Carly, Dusty's chasing Janet and Barbara is well being Barbara??? Finally glad Carly screamed it at the top of her lungs what Janet did! But Jack is really making me mad with his committment to Janet. Carly deserves better!!! Let her go to NY and find someone who loves her for her! (I know I can't believe I just said that either! Lol) well, hopefully next week will be good....

    Janet will probably be pregnant by the time she returns, because she and Dusty will sleep together while in Minnesota. She will probably try to pass it off as Jack and get busted by Carly again. Craig will never change always stealing money not his, I hope Carly finds out before all of Parker trust fund is gone. I hope Lucy returns and then the focus will be Dusty, Janet and Lucy. Quit torturing Jack and Carly and put them together already. Jack surely you can't be that blind with the way Dusty is always on the scene, get a grip bud. Let Dusty have the lying witch.

    Janet is already pregnant...that's why she faints. She will probably still try to pass it off as Jack's at first...if they in fact did do the deed earlier this week, but the truth will come out.

    HERE WE GO AGAIN CARLY CAN DO WHAT SHE WANTS BUT GOD FORBID IF JANET OPENS HER MOUTH SHE IS ALWAYS THE BAD ONE. I THINK JACK AND CARLY ARE BOTH DISGUSTING HE IS MARRIED BUT STILL DEVOTES HIS TIME ANSWERING TO CARLY THEN GOES HOME TO JANET LIKE EVERYTHING IS OKAY. I THINK CARLYS BIG MOUTH MIGHT CAUSE A BIGGER PROBLEM NOW THEN BEFORE. YOU ARE RIGHT THOUGH JACK AND CARLY DESERVE ONE ANOTHER BECAUSE THEY ARE BOTH LOW LIFE! I HOPE THIS IS DUSTYS BABY JANET DESERVES THE BEST!!

    Why is Craig broke? Rosanna gave him the money back.... He's going to lose Carly for sure when she learns he used her son, Parker's trust fund.

    I don't like Carly's scheme-trying to get Jack back. I think she was wrong in the way she told Jack about Janet and Dusty. I think Dusty was wrong to follow Janet and Liberty to Minnesota. I also so think today's episode showed both Carly and Janet as weak women - Carly trying to seduce Jack; Janet not telling Dusty to go fly a kite. Gratitude is one thing, but how far must one go to say thank you. I wish this story line would end soon. Too much time is spent on that foursome. Dusty has way too much time on his hand. I guess when Craig leaves for New York is when he'll become concern about Johnny. He sure the heck hasn't lately.

    johnny, is in boarding school and the next when we see him again he'll be 12yrs old. wasn't terry taking care of him at one time?

    Jack is not going to get too upset with Janet until he calls and finds out that Dusty is with her in Minn. or where ever they are, then he is going to believe Carly and finally see just what kind of a woman he is married to! Because when he said he would go, Janet insisted that he stay home......hhhmmmm

    Janet is the bad one right now, she committed adultry, that makes you pretty bad in most peoples eyes! Had Janet not have done things she had no business doing, would not matter what size Carly's mouth is....and by the way she is not a big mouth to most people!

    Just pray that Jack does not end up blaming Carly when Craig blows all of Parkers money, especially if it is blown on Monty Carlo....he is going to be one mad man! Jack just cannot catch a break, Dusty is after his wife, and Craig is after his sons money!

    If Janet is going to try to say this is Jacks baby, she must think he has some darn fast swimmers...sex today, 2 months pregnant tomorrow, only in Janet's world!

    iheartcarly, I totally agree...we must be unhappy since we are such hard core Jack/Carly fans and we are hoping for her to find someone in NY that will love her for her!!
