    An Inconvenient Truth.

    Tuesday, April 13 2010
    Rocco tries to convince Dusty he is innocent, Carly thinks she is protecting Jack, Parker professes his love for Liberty, and Gabriel claims he knew Bryant!


    Jack follows Carly around their home and wonders what she isn't telling him. She is saved when an angry Parker comes home complaining about Liberty. Jack thinks they both should worry less about controlling others. He then suggests a family picnic, but Carly discourages him. Parker leaves because he can't keep his distance from Liberty. Jack continues to question Carly on what she is hiding. She admits that she helped Dusty get out of the hospital so he could smoke out his shooter. An angry Jack leaves for Metro.



    Craig is not pleased when he enters his office and sees Gabriel sitting at his desk. Gabriel demands the first chunk of his million dollars by the end of the day! Craig orders him to stay away from his son.



    Janet finds Liberty window shopping and reminds her of the chemo appointment. Liberty wants to pretend everything is normal and not be so smothered. Janet worries she is smothering Dusty because he checked out of the hospital without telling her. After Janet leaves, Liberty calls Gabriel and leaves a second message. He calls her back and agrees to meet up. Janet comes back and offers to spend the afternoon with Liberty, but she lies that Parker is meeting her.



    A frustrated Dusty can't break into the safe at Metro. As he plays with the safe, a man lurks with a gun aimed at Dusty! Rocco comes up from behind and pulls the man away. He orders him to get lost because his daughter is in love with Dusty. After the man leaves, Rocco enters Metro. Dusty emerges and asks if he is there to do it right this time. Rocco claims he has changed and he took the gun off a hit man. Dusty doesn't buy it and puts the gun to Rocco's head! Janet arrives just in time to see it and yells at Dusty to stop! Rocco then crouches over and grabs his chest! Jack and Carly arrive, and as Carly calls 911, Jack checks for a pulse.



    Craig complains to Ellis about Gabriel's blackmailing scheme. Ellis is confused when Craig brings up the fake books. They realize Gabriel played them! Parker arrives in time to hear his name come up and wonders what is wrong with his trust fund. Craig persuades Parker they were discussing bank fees.



    Liberty meets Gabriel at a car dealership. Gabriel hands over a wad of cash as they check out a convertible. Liberty wonders how he got the money. Gabriel claims he has been saving for years. They get into the car and he cracks a joke about it not messing up her hair. She is happy he can joke about her cancer. Gabriel offers to drive her to her chemo appointment in style.



    Rocco is admitted to the hospital and an angry Janet yells at Dusty for beating up on an old man! Carly reminds Janet about Liberty's appointment and Jack promises to come get her if there is news. Jack doesn't think Dusty deserves Janet and orders him to stay away from Janet and his child! Jack takes a call from the police and informs Dusty that Rocco was telling the truth about the hit man.



    Janet finds Parker waiting for Liberty at the hospital. Liberty arrives with Gabriel and wonders what the big deal is. Parker is not happy to see Gabriel with her. Janet is angry that Liberty lied to her, but eases up and leaves to tell the doctors she is there. Liberty asks Parker to stay with her. He apologizes for being so hard on her. She tells him he is her best friend. Parker wonders if they could try and be more than friends now that they are older and wiser. Liberty thinks he is just saying that because of Gabriel. Parker gets angry and yells that Gabriel doesn't love her like he does. He then softens and tells him he'll never stop loving her. Liberty calmly tells him for now, friends is the best she can do. A sad Parker leaves to get her ice cubes.



    Janet returns to hear Dusty admit he thought Rocco was there to kill him. Janet realizes that Dusty was lying about not remembering anything. She yells that he played her! Janet wishes he had trusted her because now her father might die. Carly tries to talk with Janet and convince her Dusty only wanted the best for her, but Jack wants to give them their space. Dusty admits to Janet he argued with a drunk Rocco the day he was shot. Janet is confused by his logic and upset that he lied to her. Dusty claims he never meant for any of this to happen and he did it because he loves her.



    Carly and Jack step aside to talk alone. He is upset she hid information from him. Carly claims she wanted to protect him. Jack asserts he doesn't understand her at all. Carly didn't want to risk losing him, but Jack thinks she's made things worse.



    At the bank, Craig makes a big withdrawal. He goes back to his office and gives Gabriel the money. Craig warns him that he may have the upper hand, but that always changes. Gabriel retorts, "Sorry like Bryant? He was sorry you were his father!" Gabriel admits he played soccer with Bryant in Miami. He goes on to say he knows he took Bryant's trust fund, too. Craig wonders if his research showed him what he does to people who cross him. Gabriel claims he can't stop him and deserves what he gets!



    Next on As The World Turns:

    Paul promises Emily he will make everything up to her.

    Meg lurks next to a sleeping Paul.

    Chris tells Alison he still cares about her and never got over her.

    Vienna invites Barbara to her engagement party with Henry.

    Barbara makes a toast, "I'd like to tell you something about my dear friend, Henry."

    I guess I thought Craig was turning a corner, but stealing Parker's money to get a woman who doesn't love him (Carly) was pretty pathetic. At least, now there is an offense to keep him in jail--since trying to blow up Paul wasn't criminal enough.

    Liberty leans on Parker, when he wants more, she doesn't. She just uses him to make herself feel better.

    What's with Katie's hair, it looks like crap!!

    What is with the Ciconi women? THey are using people. Parker is there for Liberty all the time and now she wants him to give her space. He is thinking of using his trust fund once again for LIberty - thios is the thanks he gets. Janet going off on Dusty over her Pop. all of a sudden Pop is the most wonderful thing in her life; she needs him and no one can say anything bad about him. How well do you know your precious Pop? Janet, considering you have not seen him in what 16-17 years? never ending storyline? I am sick of this.

    Didnt take Jack long to be on Carly case again, when will she learn. I am so tired of Liberty she uses Parker every chance she gets. She needs space from him but wants to hing out with Gabriel. Carly might have been better off with Craig or even Dusty. Janet couldn't stand her dad now all of a sudden he is the best thing since ice cream.

    Craig needs to go to jail and they need to throw away the key! Carley is never going to change. She is still keeping secrets from Jack! All of a sudden I really don't like them together anymore.

    I am so tired of Jack and of him always blaming Carly for everything. He's not going to be happy until she's back in rehab. I'm a CarJack fan, but I hate the way he treats her. Leave Holden with Molly, there is no chemistry between Holden and the new Lily. The quicker Janet, Liberty, Terri and Rocco leave Oakdale, the better!!

    What I want to know is. When Janet leaves Dusty like she is talking like she wants to. Is she thinking she can go back to Jack? That woman nevers shuts up. I couldnt believe she went off on Parker like that. And then didnt have the nerve to apologize to him for blowing up at him. I cant believe Parker took that. I mean I know she is his elder but come on. That is not your child. Even Liberty doesnt let her talk to her like she did to Parker. And I agree with all the posters that said she couldnt stand "pop" for so long and all of a sudden he's the best thing since slice bread. Really Janet? Really!!! Wait until she finds out pop really did set it all in motion. I'm telling you.
    And I thought the spoiler says Carly gives her a piece of her mind. When is that gonna be. Cause I tell you, if I were Carly I would have exploded by now.
    And who is Gabriel. what is his deal?
    From the previews it looks like Meg is still not playing with a full deck if she's getting into bed with Paul. We'll just have to see.

    Run Dusty run...you just had your first taste of physco Janet!! I thought she was bad about swinging from one man to the other, never knowing what she wants from one day to the next, but this deal about her having all this love for "pop" after all these years....give me a break here! What a dunce she is, she never shuts the heck up!! She made me so mad today when she crawled Parker, the one person that has done more for Liberty than even her own mother, she should have been with her daughter, that is how she has behaved ever since she got Dusty in her life, it is like Liberty who?? She is a horrible mother and here she is bringing yet another life into this world.

    Jack, I hope that one day soon, Carly tells you to get lost, he is on my last good nerve. How dare he jump her and then take off following Janet....he is taking the taking care of Janet a tad too far. Hope that Janet totally breaks down when she finally learns what a loser her pop really is.....she will still be yelling at everyone....in her world, everyone is wrong but her!

    Gencor, I am with you on not wanting Jack and Carly together anymore and that takes a lot for me to say that! He just keeps blowing it in my book..

    Be so happy to see Barbara tomorrow, hope she puts Henry in his place, but does not make a fool of herself doing it!
