    Meant To Be.

    Monday, March 22 2010
    Faith gets caught, Molly and Lily battle, Dusty offers Janet a solution and Jack disappoints Carly.


    At Lily's, she and Holden worry about Faith. Molly repeats that Faith was using drugs. The women bicker. Lily threatens to hold Molly responsible if anything happens to her daughter. He drags Molly across the room so Lily begins bellowing at them, saying that Molly has been playing up to Faith to impress Holden. He decides to go looking for his daughter and Lily leaves with him.



    Faith goes to see Parker at his place. He's shocked to see her. She asks if she can stay. He's okay with that. They talk about Liberty and what a rough time she's having. He thinks that he's gotten a lot closer to her because of this. She asks for some munchies and then gets nervous when someone drives up. It's her parents. She panics and makes Parker promise not to tell anyone she's there. He needs an explanation. Faith explains about her pot bust. He thinks this is all stupid and tells her to talk to her parents. When she threatens to go out the window, he decides she can stay. He slips down to get some food and she pulls out a bag of joints.



    Jack shows up at Carly's with a bag of books on pregnancy. He begins rambling about prenatal vitamins. "It's going to be an awful long nine months if you keep this up," she says. She thinks it's time they made a public announcement about their relationship. He doesn't want to do that without talking to Janet first. Carly is not pleased. Lily and Holden show up looking for their daughter. They fill them in and Jack runs off with them to search. Carly walks into the kitchen and finds Parker getting food. After mentioning the mess with Faith, she talks about Jack and assures him that she is together with him again.


    Parker goes back into his room as Faith hides the drugs under his bed. He tells her that he is taking her to the farm to hide her where no one can find her.


    Parker takes Faith to the farm house. Lily and Holden are waiting for her. Faith tells Parker he's a jerk. She leaves with her parents.



    Back at Lily's, she questions her daughter about her drug use. She points out that many of the people in the family already have substance abuse problems. Faith insists that this is a lot of fuss about nothing and she hates her school. They argue. Faith refuses to go back to school. Her parents know that things have been a mess lately, but that doesn't excuse what she did. Holden makes her promises never to do drugs again then leaves to take a conference call. Lily tells her daughter that she wants them to be close again... and she doesn't think it's appropriate for her to have a relationship with Molly. Faith accuses her of being jealous and suggests that she learn to tell the truth herself. After Lily storms off, Faith complains to her father about her mom. He suggests that she stay out of trouble and give her mom a break.



    At his place, Dusty jokes to Janet that he can buy off a bishop to get her annulment. They make out. She stops and says she can't be with him. Things are moving too fast. She's been praying for Liberty and she's afraid that if she takes time to let herself be happy, Liberty will get worse. He asks her to fly to Santo Domingo to get a divorce. She's reluctant; everything is moving too fast... but she agrees anyway. They hug and kiss. After she calls Teri to tell her, they run off. She tells him that she is happy and hopeful for the first time in a very long time.



    Carly walks into Al's to see Molly. They complain about Lily and Molly insists that she is not 'the other woman' in all of this and she just wants Lily to get over Holden. Carly turns the topic back to Jack and says they are meant to be. 'Meant to be' doesn't mean much to Molly. She says what counts is work and warns her that Jack won't walk away from his new baby so easily.


    Parker walks into the station to see his father. Jack assures him that he did the right thing by turning Faith in. They talk about Jack's rivalry with Dusty.


    Molly arrives at the farm house. Lily is there. She tells her to stop trying to be Faith's friend because it is confusing her. Molly refuses to agree to her demands. They bicker and Molly refuses to back off.



    Jack goes to Carly's. She gives him coffee. He notices he got a text from Janet informing her of her plans for a quickie divorce. He starts to throw a tantrum. Carly laughs. He rants and decides to 'fix the problem' himself. Soon after Jack storms off, Janet and Dusty arrive. They tell Carly that Jack had the plane grounded and wouldn't let it leave the country. Carly screams for Jack. He comes back in and begins bickering with Dusty. Janet begins having spasms.


    Upstairs, Parker notices the bag of joints under his bed.


    Next on As The World Turns:

    Barbara tries using Craig to make Henry jealous.

    Ellis worries that he and Craig could be caught.

    Jack refuses to let Janet leave the house.

    Carly walks in on an intimate moment between Janet and Jack.

    Why can't the writers just leave Carly and Jack alone, why don't they just put these two together, for the remaining months of this show, no wonder this soap is going off air waves.. peace out.

    I wish that someone would come take Lily far, far, away. How dare she talk like she did to Molly today, if Holden does not start standing up to that woman soon, I hope Molly puts a large knot on his head. Loved when she told Lily today that she sounded just like Lucinda, man she is a spoiled rotten woman, can see where Faith gets her smart mouth. Thought earlier that maybe Parker and Faith might get together, but I pray that does not happen, he is way too good a person for her. She is just like her mother.

    Jack is wrong on every level known to man in how he is treating Carly...let him take Janet and play house with her again, of course in two days he will be back begging Carly to forgive him and she will. Carly and Dusty deserve so much better than they are getting out of Jack and Janet right now...Jack and Holden both need to quit being Snyders and treat their ladies a whole lot better...

    Hi ps and shorty! Hi everyone else!

    First, let me state very clearly that I am a total CarJack fan and I am absolutely thrilled that they are back together.

    I am also definitely not happy with Jack reading the pregnancy books in front of Carly. He is being insensitive to her feelings. At the same time, Carly has to tell Jack how she really feels about the pregnancy. If she is not okay with it all, she has to tell Jack, instead of reassuring Jack that she is okay with Janet having his baby. The two of them need to do a better job of communicating with each other. Both of them also need to give each other a lot of slack.

    I think that Carly is feeling (understandably) very insecure which is clouding her perspective. Jack is only interested in the baby, not Janet. Jack wants to be with Carly, only Carly.

    Also, as for Jack putting a stop to Janet and Dusty's plan to get a quickie divorce, I completely side with Jack. It is clear to me that Jack is trying to protect his legal rights to the baby, nothing more and nothing less. If Janet divorces Jack and marries Dusty, when the baby is born, Dusty's name as Janet's husband will appear as the baby's father regardless. Then Jack will go through legal he!! to claim any visitation rights to the baby. Dusty will hired all the best lawyers that his money can buy to stonewall Jack at every turn.

    Dusty has made his intentions very clear to Jack - I am sure that off screen Dusty has already spoken to his lawyers about how to freeze Jack out of this baby's life. I wouldn't trust Dusty as far as I could throw him and Jack is right not to trust Dusty. Dusty wants Jack out of Janet's life which is fine by me, but he has no right to shut Jack out of his baby's life completely.

    Jack needs to do a better job of communicating all of his concerns about the baby to Carly who isn't getting it. Carly needs to be smarter and see Jack's POV, instead of worrying and being insecure. In due time, Jack will be happy to make a public statement about them.

    The conversation between Parker and Carly gave insight into the difficulties of the current situation and I hope that Parker's levelheaded and clearsighted comments made an impression on Carly. She really needs to step back and see the big picture.

    As for Lily, I really missed Martha and wish that she would come back. This Lily is driving me up the wall. She just comes across as a real mean you know what. She was out of line with Molly and she is clearly trying to cause problems for Holden and Molly. I wish that Holden had defended Molly to Lily during her tirade. What is wrong with these Snyder men!

    At least one Snyder man is thinking and acting clearly. I thought that Parker was just so cute today and I love him. He was so good in all his scenes, esp. with Jack. I too was proud of Parker for doing the right thing with Faith. I definitely don't want him and Faith to hook up. She is just too unpleasant and snarky for Parker. Faith is so annoying.

    I really enjoyed today's eppy. Really a lot of fun to watch.

    Im sorry but I don't think Jack himself knows what he wants
    poor Carly had to hear him say a piece of him will always love her omg this is getting too stupid even for soaps. What do they think of us who watch faithfully that we are that dumb put a great story line on and make us all very happy I am sick of the whinners and the grabbers soon I will be history with this soap and may lighting strike me If I ever get hooked on another one please. hugzzzzzzzzzzzzz to all the poor watchers like me.

    I SAID IT BEFORE AND I WILL SAY IT AGAIN JACK WANTS BOTH WORLDS! HE STILL CAN NOT LET JANET GO, I DO NOT BELIEVE IT IS JUST ABOUT THE BABY! HE DOESNT WANT HER BUT HE DOES NOT WANT HER WITH ANYONE ELSE. I SAY CARLY IS LUST AND JANET IS LOVE FOR HIM, HE NEEDS TO GET HIS ACT TOGETHER. AS FOR CARLY I STILL THINK SHE IS DISCUSSING ! I WANT JANET AND DUSTY TOGETHER!!

    Will someone please explain why everyone thinks Carly and Jack together?
    They are so boring. No fire at all.

    Posted by awesome53 at Monday, March 22 2010 03:15 PM

    I meant are so wonderful together.

    Posted by NORS at Monday, March 22 2010 04:13 PM

    Don't like the new Faith, miss the old one. I don't think Jack is the father of Janets baby. Janet&Dusty said they were only together on New Years Eve, but I'm pretty sure they slept together one more time. It was in a hotel somewhere..Lily is unreal!!!Molly should just slap her. Holden needs to borrow some manhood somewhere and tell Lucinda and Lily take a hike. Jack and Carly will hopefully stick it out this time. I actually like Janet and Dusty together.Besides Dusty always needs someone to rescue.
