    It's Not That Simple.

    Monday, March 08 2010
    Janet tells Jack her news, Dusty still wants Janet, Holden escapes and Lily tracks down Damian.

    At home, Faith is on the phone with Damian telling him she can't sneak around for him anymore. He threatens to reveal her problems at school if she doesn't co-operate. She's starting to stop caring. Damian threatens her again and tries to set up a meeting between with Lily. After she hangs up, Lily comes in and asks what's going on. Faith says she needs a drive to school. Lily can't do it so she asks for lift to a friend's house instead.

    Molly goes to Faith's school pretending to be Lily. The head mistress recognizes her as a TV reporter. Molly admits it and then asks her what would happen if anyone found out they released and under aged girl to some random guy pretending to be her father. After the head mistress describes the man, Molly gasps, "Damian!"

    At the station, Holden is flipping out at the cops. Lily and Faith arrive and tell him she's leaving again. Holden is in handcuffs so no one gets to hug. Faith tells her father she knows he's innocent and then leaves with her mother. The cop returns to lead him away. Holden pushes him off. Molly runs in and says they can't take him away. She explains what just happened at the school. He panics and is sure that Lily is being led into a trap. When he tells the cops, they don't believe him. Holden chokes a cop unconscious, steals his keys and runs off.

    Faith and Lily are in her car. Lily is sure that something is up because her daughter is so jumpy. Faith gets a text from Damian telling her to hurry. She starts shaking. Her mother interrogates her, swipes her phone away and asks if some boy is threatening her. Faith breaks down and explains that Damian is alive. Lily's shocked and confused. She soon realizes that they are on the way to meet Damian and calls the police. Her phone doesn't work so they drive off to see him on their own. When they pull up to the address Damian sent Faith, Lily tells her daughter to wait while she goes to face him.

    Lily goes into a house and calls for Damian. He suddenly appears.

    Carly and Jack are making out on her chaise lounge. He stops so he can tell her that she is beautiful and precious. After they get in her bed and have sex, she tells him she feels at peace. He thinks they've wasted too much time being apart. She's glad that he could finally keep his promises. "I'm yours and I love you," he says.

    At the hospital, Janet is in shock when a doctor informs her and Dusty that she's pregnant. After the doctor departs, Janet says that God must have intervened to save Lily's life. He asks her if she's sure this is Jack's baby. An alternative answer hadn't occurred to her so he reminds her that they slept together. She refuses to even think about that. She calls Jack. "We did it. I'm pregnant," she announces. Jack gulps.

    Jack and Carly get dressed in her room. She's shocked that he was still sleeping with Janet. He didn't think this would happen. Carly is freaked out. He tells her that everything will be alright but he has to go and see Janet. She's sure this changes everything and tells him to go. He leaves. She makes the bed. He returns and kisses her. She takes his scarf so he'll have something to come back for. "I have everything to come back for," he says.

    Back at the hospital, Dusty continues to question Janet about her certainty. He refuses to pretend that he doesn't love her. Jack arrives. Dusty wishes her the best and leaves them alone. She tells Jack that she will always be grateful for this but she doesn't expect anything else from him. He has no intention of walking away. She knows he loves Carly and won't try to get him back. They decide to go ahead with ending the marriage.

    Sage goes home and finds her mother milling around. She guesses that her parents have been together. Carly admits they are back together again. Sage is thrilled and hugs her, demanding details. She asks when Jack will leave Janet and move back in. Sage rambles. Carly repeats that things are complicated. Jack returns. Sage asks if he's staying. "It's not that simple," he says. Sage runs off excited. Jack's annoyed that Carly already told her. They talk things over. He says he'll always come back to her.

    Dusty is sitting on a street bench looking pensive. Teri finds him and asks for an update. He tells her Janet is pregnant. She wonders if he'll still want to be with her if it's Jack's baby. He's holding on to the possibility that the baby could be his. Even if it is Jack's baby though, he still wants to be with her.

    Dusty goes to the farm house to see Janet. He gives her flowers and points out that she's been nauseous for months and the baby could be his. "Would it be so bad if this baby were ours?" he asks. She says it has to be Jack's. He asks her to believe in miracles and refuses to walk away from her.

    Next on As The World Turns:

    Carly tells Craig she doesn't know if thing are over between Jack and Janet.

    Jack asks Janet who the father is.

    Damian clobbers Holden and takes the family hostage.

    Jack and Carly forever. please stop this madness, Janet should be happy for a man like Dusty....

    I could have hugged Jack when he ran back upstairs to kiss and hug Carly before he left!! I am thrilled they are together and they are being so adult about Janet being pregnant, talking openly about it, Carly saying she is not happy but that they WILL work thru it!! Jack and Carly are back and stronger than ever!

    Thought that today was a great show, better than any in the last few months! Other than silly ole Lily, she is such a dunce. Please let Holden and Molly get together. I am sure when Holden saves Lily he will fall into her arms and say how much he loves her right in front of Molly.....jerk!!

    Janet treated Dusty so very mean today, not once did she even admit it might be his baby, what a sad look he had on his face, she is the queen of denial, but I hate that she is hurting Dusty, he so deserves a baby and for the first time today I felt like this one is his!!

    I know that Janet was soooo desperate to have a baby with Jack, but seriously, any other woman would want to know how far along they were especially if they had slept with two men. Wouldn't the doctor have done an ultrasound? I mean really, writers come on get this storyline straight.

    How dumb is Lily? She takes her daughter along when she knowingly goes to see a man who...withheld evidence that Holden was not dead, thought he killed Meg and stuffed her into a trunk, faked his own death to set up Holden, probably killing someone in the process, kidnapped Faith from school...all this just in the past 6 months....we won't even go into the rest of his history! She must really be impressed with herself to think that she will have any effect on him whatsoever. He is a psychopath and he will kill her...and Faith, if he feels it is necessary. Is she as insane as he is? What an idiot.

    I am so proud of Dusty wanting to find out if the baby is his or not, he should and so should Jack.

    Posted by shorty1943 at Monday, March 08 2010 12:52 PM

    I just kept thinking today that Jack or Carly would say hey wait a minute here.....this could be Dustys baby, but that light just never went off. Looks like it will be brought up tomorrow. If I were Janet it would run me nuts not knowing, I would have been laying on that ultrasound table waiting on the doctor! Dusty will not let this drop and thank goodness he won't....that man loves Janet and he wants his very own baby so very badly! Hang in there Dusty!

    Hi everyone! I have been a lurker for a while and have been enjoying reading the comments for some time. I have been a longtime ATWT fan off and on for many years. Recently, I started watching ATWT again.

    Today was a great eppy. The best part was definitely the CarJack scenes. I am a huge CarJack fan and am absolutely thrilled that they are back together. I too was so happy when Jack went back up to the bedroom and hugged and kissed Carly and told her that he loves her.*sigh* How romantic was that! I am clapping with glee.

    These two are just perfect for each other and really do belong together. These two are so romantic with each other. Their love scenes have always been utterly romantic in a lovely old-fashioned way, yet at the same time they are combustible on the scene.

    I am not worried about the WTD s/l. It will turn out that the father is Dusty. I hope that Dusty and Janet get together. I don't particularly like Janet but Dusty really does love her and he is fighting for her.

    I don't see anything standing in the way for CarJack. They are each other's true north. I am so in love with these two. I am very happy. What I am hoping to see before ATWT goes off the air is a big, beautiful CarJack wedding.
