    Craig is Shot!

    Monday, November 27 2006
    Casey lies to Maddie, Carly, Simon, and Mike confront Katie about "Oakdale Confidential", and Dusty shoots Craig in front of Lucy!

    Casey meets Elwood outside Java. Elwood gives Casey a test he has swiped for his off a professor's desk.The two discuss the exam, and Maddie approaches, overhearing part of their conversation, she asks him “How could you fail your exam?” Casey tells her he didn't fail the test, he stayed up all night studying, and he fell asleep and missed the test. Elwood backs him up, saying that he told him to set the alarm, not the buzzer. Casey tells Maddie he needs to go look at something real quick with Elwood and leave Maddie alone at the doors of Java.

    As Maddie stands angrily waiting for Casey, Adam approaches and says “I know that face, what has my brother done now?” Maddie tells Adam that Casey was supposed to hang out with her last night and told her he had to study, then today he told her the story about sleeping through his alarm. Maddie thinks Casey is lying to her and “The last thing he needs is a girlfriend in high school” Adam tells Maddie that she is “The best thing to happen to my brother since the invention of the mp3 player” More confident, Maddie asks Adam to wait at Java for a minute while she goes to buy Casey a sweater.

    Casey comes back to the front of Java and asks Adam “What's the story morning glory?” Adam responds “I hear you're the one with the story” Casey tells him that he wouldn't lie to Maddie. Adam tells him that he knows Casey is lying, and he's only talked to him 12 times in the past year, so Maddie must have figured it out much sooner. As the two fight, Maddie comes back and asks them why they're yelling at each other!Casey tells her they arn't fighting, and he doesn't want to go shopping as they had planned, he's just going to go home and study for his make-up exam.

    Simon excitedly greets Carly.He tells her the necklace he gave her looks good, and she asks “What if someone finds out this is one of the diamonds we stole from Vienna?” Simon assures her no one is going to find out. As they are talking the doorbell rings, and Carly opens the door and find Lucinda there. Lucinda tells them, “Thanks to Katie, all of us in this town know more then we ever wanted to know about the two of you” When Carly asks Lucinda what Katie wrote about them Lucinda tells them Katie gets dumped by Simon for “A conniving sl*t!” Angered Carly tells her “My children are in school, this is going to be horrible for them!” Lucinda tells them that the book is really a good thing for them, it's a best seller, and is great PR for them. After she leaves Carly tells Simon “We have to read this book, now!”

    Katie tells Henry that she feels bad about Oakdale Confidential. She wrote the new pages in a moment of anger, and regrets the decision to publish them. When Henry suggests that the book could potentially be a big flop, Katie gets an idea and goes to the bookstore nearby, asking to purchase all of the copies they have available. The bookstore employee recognizes her as the author and tells her she can have as many copies as she wants, they have plenty more boxes in the back. Katie tells her nevermind and walks away. Katie asks Henry, who's life she didn't mess up with this book. As she finishes her sentence two women run up, excited to meet Katie, who's life in the book is an inspiration to them. Henry organizes an impromptu book signing, and Katie signs book for a line of eager fans. When Katie takes a break, Carly and Simon stop by the bookstore and confront Katie about the book. Henry suggests Carly and Simon read the book before they fight with Katie so they can have an informed discussion. The two leave, and Katie excitedly goes back to signing books. Later after Henry leaves she is handed a book and when she asks who to make it out to Mike's voice says "To my Ex"

    Paul goes through the glove box of Dusty's car He replaces the bullets in the magazine that he saw Emily remove earlier.

    Meg and Emma talk about Meg's plans to move up her wedding date. Meg tells Emma she hasn't been able to talk to the groom yet, because he won't answer his cell phone. Emma encourages Meg to call again, and Meg calls Paul, leaving a message to stop by the farm.

    Emily and Craig talk in the dining room. Emily tells Craig she's replaced the bullets in Dusty's gun with the blanks he gave her but doesn't see how what she's doing is going to bring her any closer to Paul. “Without me you are nothing” Craig tells her. Angry, Emily picks up her jacket and leaves.


    Craig calls Lucy who is paying her bill at Java, Lucy asks him one more time to give up contesting Johnny's adoption because Dusty has a gun. Craig tells her, “I know he has a gun, that's why I've agreed to meet with him” Craig tells Lucy that he has agreed to meet Dusty at the garage, and he's not going to bring a gun, there's just going to be some chest thumping and they'll work everything out like adults. Craig fakes the phone breaking up and hangs up the phone. As they hang up, Emily walks into Java and Lucy approached her saying 'Please Emily, you're the only one who can save my dad!” Emily tells Lucy that she doesn't think Dusty would hurt Craig. She confidently tells her that no one is going to get hurt, and Lucy asks her “What do you know that I don't?”


    Dusty waits for Craig in the parking deck. Craig arrives and Dusty holds up his gun telling Craig “I'm not here to talk” Dusty tells Craig he doesn't want to use his gun, he hands Craig the papers he sent him contesting Johnny's adoption, and asks him to tear them up. Craig refuses, asking Dusty “What are you going to do if I don't?” Dusty responds “I'm going to leave you on the floor dead!” Craig tells him if he tears up the paper's his lawyer will just draw up another set.

    At home Simon shows Carly a copy of “Oakdale Confidential” that he stole from the bookstore. The two read the sections about themselves and laugh. Simon skims forward and tells Carly “this is worse than we thought”

    Paul comes by the farm. Emma tells him she missed him at dinner, and leaves Meg and Paul alone. Meg tells him she wants to get married next week, if he'll say yes. Paul kisses Meg, excited that they are finally getting married!

    In the parking garage, Dusty raises his gun to shoot Craig, and Lucy runs out of the shadows yelling “No!” the gun fires, and Craig falls to the ground, having been shot in the chest.Craig looks surprised the gun actually had a bullet in it.

    Unfortunately, Craig won't die. I can't imagine Dusty thinks shooting Craig is going to help his custody situation. Not too smart. I don't like this whole storyline anyway. No substance. Much like the whole show right now. ATWT & cast have always been my favorite soap, but lately not too much of interest happening. Hope it gets better soon.

    I agree lilyholden....terrible acting by Lucy...it just gets worse every time I see her. Overall a ho-hum episode today.

    CBSSoapKing, please remember not to bash the actors.

    Why didn't they let Jennifer's ghost come back and talk some sense into Dusty or something to stop him from ruining his chances at keeping Johnny. Did he stop to think that if he went to jail he would loose Johnny anyway. He should have let it got to court, those type of things take forever to get resolved in court in the real world anyway. Craig needs to die off, he is just doing to much and he can take is whimpy daughter with him. What has happened to Lucy over the past few months???She came on strong, took on Damian now everytime she is on she is crying about Dusty or her father?? I'm just tired of Katie altogether right now. She is making a bigger mess out of things with this book of hers. What is going on with Casey???

    what the hell Katie, Craig, and Emily is doing way too much. KAtie definantly needs to see that she is no longer a baby. And I agress Craig can leave the picture and take his weak daughter with her. Emily needs to stop being a ginnepig for every man that looks at her. and as far as this storyline I agree, its bunk. I listen to the soaps on a weather band radio because while its on I'm at work, so I have to imagine whats going on. I getting tired of this craig plot. but ready to hear what will happen to carly and simon.

    Craig nor Dusty will get custody of Johnny. Babs will! Good job Katie. Great exposing Carly and Simon regarding the jewels. As Jack stated Carly will lose everything because of Simon. Simon's storyline will run out (until Katie gives birth to his child) Whatever's going on with Holden and the blonde needs to come out, I don't like Lily being messed over. The Princess is one of my favs.

    These storylines really bite. I know soaps must stay interesting, but I have a problem with the thought process that would even consider giving Craig custody of his biological child considering his actions past and present. There must be something more intertaining to write about. Lucy is a disappointment and Emily, please!

    I don't watch this show any more. There is no character even worth caring about...those that I really loved are hardly on anymore. When i want to see Jessica Griffin, I just tune into Law & Order.
    Margo and Tom are hardly on anymore. I miss the old days of Duncan and his lady love ( i forget her name) I miss Tonio Reyes, now here was aman you would love to hate ....not just hate -hate.

    DUSTY SHOULD LEAVE LUCY SHE DOESN'T LOVE HIM OR HIS SON. I HOPE CRAIG DIES. WHY DID HE COME BACK ANYWAY. BRING ROSANNA BACK. EMILY SHOULD GO BACK TO THE CRAZY HOUSE FOR HELPING CRAIG. I HOPE CARLY LOSE HER KIDS FOR GETTING MIXED UP WITH SIMON. LUCINDA TOLD HER RIGHT SHE SHOULD HAVE THOUGHT ABOUT HER KIDS FIRST. I HOPE JACK FINDS HIM A NICE WOMAN TO LOVE HIM AND HELP RAISE HIS KIDS. KATIE DESERVES WHATEVER COMES HER WAY. PLEASE GIVE MIKE A GOOD WOMAN TO BE HAPPY WITH. EVERY WOMAN HE HAS BEEN WITH HAS HURT HIM. I THINK MIKE AND ROSANNA SHOULD BE BACK TOGETHER THEY WERE A GOOD MATCH BACK IN THE DAY. JADE NEEDS TO DISAPPEAR FOR GOOD GWEN NEEDS TO GIVE HER A GOOOD BUTT KICKING.

    I can't stand Lucy, especially this recast. All she has done is cry and waffle back and forth until no one cares anymore. Too bad the gun didn't get her, too.
    Katie is a spoiled brat who is never happy with anyone or anything. I will never root for her unless she finally grows up and realizes that the world does not revolve around her.
    I cannot for the life of me figure out what in the world Carly is thinking. She has gone completely off her rocker. Simon is not a mean person, but he is a con artist and she cannot possibly believe he will want to stay with her if something better comes along. Especially since she has 3 kids! Won't they kind of get in the way when he decides he wants to heist something?
    Craig is just awful. Unfortunately he won't die from this shooting, and I just hate to think what will happen to that poor little boy. This show needs to find a miracle and bring Jennifer back, so Johnny can have his mother to fight for him.
