    I Need You.

    Friday, April 09 2010
    Noah has a date, Luke steps up for Reid, Lily and Holden take Faith away and Molly's past rears its head.

    At Al's, Luke is excited for Noah when he hears his eyesight might be improving. As they hold hands, Reid watches through the window and then trudges off to work. Luke invites Noah out to celebrate with friends. Noah already has a date. Luke demands information. Noah insists it's not a date and then admits it is. He wants to be with someone who doesn't constantly put pressure on him or try to fix him. Luke is livid but Noah insists that this is what he wants. Luke thinks this sucks and walks out.

    At the Lakeview, Kim tells Bob that she could become accustomed to being spoiled. She's been enjoying their second honeymoon. He thinks they should go on a never ending honeymoon. His beeper goes off.

    Bob and Kim find Reid at the hospital. Bob informs him that Judd has pressed charges and that means that he can not have hospital privileges until he is cleared. Reid is furious and lashes out. As they argue, Luke runs in and drags Reid away. They yell at each other. Luke tells him to toe the line and respect Bob more. Reid worries that his career is about to end. Luke tells him to get a lawyer and focus on getting the charges dropped. Reid can't focus without work; it's the only thing he has to hold on to. "I need you," he tells Luke. He wants his name, money and power so he can get back in the operating room. Luke doesn't want to be like Damian, but he says that his grandmother can help. He's called her to take care of some things for him back in Texas. He announces that he is going to the lone star state with him to fight the charges.

    When Luke stops by Al's to pick up food, he sees Noah laughing with his date. He runs out and watches them through the window. Reid joins him and they leave for their flight.

    At home, Lily orders her daughter to pack her bag so they can leave. She asks Holden not to go with them but he thinks that she needs help with Faith. Their daughter demands that Molly go with them. Holden insists that this is a family matter and she doesn't call the shots.

    Molly goes into the farm house and chats with Emma. She shows her the dress she bought for Holden. Emma informs her that he's going away with Lily and Faith for awhile. Molly understands the intervention idea. They take cookies out of the oven and Emma offers her the cabin's address. Emma loves Lily but she's fed up with her all the same. Molly's thrilled that she seems to support her relationship with Holden. They hug.

    Faith is taken to the cabin by her parents. Faith moans, even though they brought ingredients for smores. When her parents go out, she tries to get reception on her phone but has no luck. She finds some booze and swigs down a few glasses. Her parents return with groceries once she's drunk. Lily accuses her of trying to sabotage things. "I hate my life and it's all your fault," Faith moans to her mom. Holden tells her that they are there for her. She points out that they have never given her a stable life. They ask her to help them help her make things better. Faith cries on her mother's shoulder and starts to get nauseous. Molly bursts in. Lily rolls her eyes. Molly stutters until Lily drags her daughter out to sober up. Holden wonders if she's upset about him going away with Lily. He explains the latest problems with Faith. She admits that he hurt her feelings by running off without telling her. He says he will make things up to her.

    Faith and Lily sit outside. She doesn't think she can do all of this talking and wants to go back to town. Her mom reminds her that she was her age once. She complains about her own mother and admits that it breaks her heart to know that one day she won't be around. When they go back inside, Molly leaves. The parents put Faith to bed and reminisce about being snowbound with their daughter. She wishes she could have their early, easier days back. He doesn't think that's impossible. Their hands touch.

    At WOAK, Kim calls Molly and tells her that there is a story breaking in Chicago. Molly agrees to run off before she can explain the details. Kim turns to Bob who calls over a cameraman. He has him record him giving her a scrapbook of their wedding. He promises that the next 25 years will be special. They kiss.

    Molly arrives in Chicago and is shocked to surprise that Silas Whitman has been released. She tries to run off but he catches her. "I'll win you back," he vows.

    Next on As The World Turns:

    Paul wakes up in bed with Meg. Emily is staring at him.

    Dusty and a man struggle for a gun and Rocco goes down.

    Gabriel blackmails Craig.

    Carly tells Janet she has a problem with her.

    I'm SO glad the writers have given Luke's character some stability. He was going nowhere with Noah. Reid brings a mature and disciplined environment which compliments exactly what Luke needs most. This is going to be a great couple and it's coming just in time to help ATWT sign off. Not much to say about the other storylines...nothing unpredictable.

    I agree, CBS, never did care for Luke and Noah, but really do enjoy watching Luke with Reid, he is like a different person when he is not whining with Noah!

    Where is the barf bag? Sure did need it today when Lily and Holden touched each others hands and held that wonderful calf in a hail storm glance into each others eyes!! Yucky yuck!! Come on writers, they have tried this time and time again and cannot get it right, leave Holden and Molly together. Lily annoys me more each and every day. She was talking about Lucinda today and I thought, yes, you are raising just as big a spoiled brat as Lucinda not care for Faith at all, but the actress is doing a great job..

    Cannot wait until next week, looks like Carly finally gives Janet the he!! she so deserves, that has been a long time coming. What is up with Paul and Meg? So hope they do not put them together again!! Just my opinion!!

    i hope janet tells carly off

    Noah is an a** ! All that crap about needing some one who doesn't try to fix him or put pressure on him please! All Luke ever wanted was for Noah to open up and let Luke be there for him and for NOah to be there for him but Noah could never do that. Things got tough and Noah got going. Now he's already moved on didn't take him long did it? I guess Luke didn't mean as much to him as he claimed. Luke gave Noah a home and a family and 100% of his love and commintment it's to bad Noah can't say the same. Luke is so better off with Reid! Reid is tons better and much better looking. Funny I thought Noah losing his sight might help him see things more clearly but he's even more blind now
    then when he could see. I hope Luke gets together with Reid and never gives Noah a second thought cause he isn't worth it. Luke is too good for the liked of him!

    Well, Adriana it was the other way Carly will tell Janet off. Sorry!

    Why should Janet tell Carly off? She has ended up being the best friend to Janet, opened her house, her own bedroom, her life to help her thru all this mess that Janet herself has created! She is the one that does not have a clue who her baby daddy is, she is the one that hangs on to Jack and Dusty both, never fully letting Jack go because she cannot stand the fact that he wants to be with Carly....has always wanted to be with her.She asked Carly to help with Liberty and she has done that with great compassion. You should appreciate all that Carly has done for Janet and Liberty, so should Janet. All Janet should give to Carly is her heartfelt thanks for being there for her when not even her own parents chose to do that!! Some people take their hate of Carly just a little too far, it is hard to be nice to Janet, but Carly has pulled it off, way more than I would have. Janet is so out of place if she ever tells Carly off, but Carly has taken and taken from her and Jack, she deserves to blow up at both of them, but most especially Janet. Cannot wait until Monday when she does just that! This is my opinion only!

    I'm not a fan of Janet at all but lets think about this for a minute.....Janet is only doing to Carly right now what Carly did to Jack and Janet when they first got married. Carly would call Jack and he would run to her aid. And that is exactly what's happening now. Janet calls and he runs. The difference is she's preggers with "Jack's baby" and I use that term loosely because I still don't think it's his. I think it's Dusty's. And in the end Jack will be without either women. Carly will be fed up and Janet will still be with Dusty. My opinion & hopes of course.

    Posted by lovinthesoaps at Sunday, April 11 2010 06:57 AM

    I am with you ladies! Its about time that Carly let Janet know whats up!! Carly has bent herself into a pretzel to help Janet, Liberty and Jack. She has done everything they have asked and then some. I hated that when Janet thought Dusty was going to die that she went right back to assuming that Jack would be taking care of her! Glad to see Dusty back to his old cranky self.... the show wouldnt be the same without him. Spoilers say that Carly will save Dusty this time!! Man, give this woman a cape! She is the Saviour of all crazy things in Oakdale lately.... who would have guessed! All while battling alcoholism! Carly Rocks!!

    Lily, Holden and Faith.......gag!!! I would hate to think that they are going to reunite this boring couple. Holden is so much better with Molly. Lily will always be a spoiled brat that blames everyone else for her problems and it looks like Faith is a spitting image of her mother. YUCK! I have no need for this whole storyline and it seems all too familiar. Diet pills anyone??? Been there done that with Faith. Not sure why we must be tortured with it again. It didnt save Lily and Holdens marriage the first time, dont see it happening again.

    Actually liking Luke's character for the first time EVER. Couldnt stand him with Noah..... crybabies! But with Reid he seems to have some grown up input and hopefully he will just keep growing up! Hope he turns out like Holden because his parents are a train wreck! Thats all for me folks..... cant wait for Monday to see my girl Carly giving Janet some h3ll!

    Posted by shorty1943 at Sunday, April 11 2010 11:34 AM

    lovin, great read my mind! Maybe our girl will finally get her say tomorrow, she has gone way beyond the call of duty for Jack, Janet, and Liberty. Certainly more than 9 out of 10 women would do and keeps that smile on her pretty face!

    I also agree with all you that think Luke and Reid belong together, never cared one ounce for Luke or Noah, but like him with Reid. Noah needs to learn how to treat others, if he wants someone to love him, he needs to act more lovable!

    Pray that Henry wakes up before he marries Vienna, Barbara might be older, but she knows how to treat him right, that is more than Vienna does.

    And please, please, no more Lily, Holden, and Faith. They just do not seem to know who the parents are in this trio...turn that rotten kid over your knee, since talking won't work with her. You reward her by taking her up to a lovely little cabin, playing games, etc....and why would you not hide the liquor?? Holden and Lily fail big time as parents!!
