    Over My Dead Body.

    Friday, May 21 2010
    Dusty surprises Janet, Gabriel wakes up and Jack and Janet fight.

    Parker is at the station confessing to Margo. She asks him to stop and tells him to get an attorney. He keeps confessing.

    At home, Jack tells Carly that Parker won't go to jail. She doesn't want to fight anymore. They search around for their son and notice he's gone. Margo calls Jack and explains that Parker has confessed. They run off.

    Jack and Carly arrive at the station and forbid their son from saying anything. He still wants to confess but they refuse. Carly drags him into the interrogation room and berates him. He thinks she is just making things worse. "You will confess over my dead body," she says. He knows this situation is ripping his parents apart and he can't allow that.

    Dusty calls Janet at Al's and asks her out for a date. He announces he's rushing over. She looks at her reflection in a knife and sighs. As she does her hair, Dusty arrives with flowers. When he tells her it is the twenty first, she says this won't work. It's her father's birthday. She's still mourning a man she just met again. He offers some words of consolation and they leave together.

    Lily is at the hospital when her mother arrives. Lucinda insists that none of what's happened is their fault. Lily defends Craig as Lucinda rants. She doesn't know what her daughter wants them to do. Lily explains that she covered for Craig to the cops. Lucinda shakes her head. Craig suddenly appears. He and Lucinda trade insults and threats. Lucinda doubts Gabriel has a shot at a happy life with Craig around. The doctor comes out of Gabriel's room and fills them in, telling them that Gabriel is strong and will recover. "No thanks to the sperm donor," Lucinda groans. Margo calls her brother and tells him that Parker confessed. Craig is relieved and makes sure Lucinda knows it. He leaves to meet his sister. Lucinda sends her daughter away and goes in to see Gabriel. He wakes up as she touches his face. She tells him that she was a friend of his mother's and she deserved better than Craig.

    Back at the station, Margo confronts Jack about keeping the truth to himself. Jack screams. Margo knows how he feels but she reminds him that he is a cop and he has sabotaged the investigation. She takes him off the case. Jack goes in to see Carly and their son. She tells him that Parker confessed for them. They tell their son that they are proud of him and will concentrate on him from now on. A cop comes in to take Parker to processing. Jack tells Carly he's off the case and can't do anything. After Parker is led away, Carly tells Jack that this is all his fault and she will never forgive him. They shout at each other and throw blame back and forth.

    Craig meets with Margo at Java and talks excitedly about his son. She reminds him about all of the other charges he's facing. He claims he welcomes hurdles he can leap over and is happy for a chance to make things up to his son. She warns him again that things aren't going well for him and explains that she thinks Gabriel came to find him and tried to be like his father, who just happened to be a manipulative crook.

    When Craig and Margo arrive at the hospital, Lily tells them that Gabriel is awake. They go into his room and Margo asks him if he remembers what happened. "I remember everything," Gabriel says. He claims that he got up after Parker left and Craig was there and he hit him. Lucinda peers in and smiles.

    Janet and Dusty sit on a bench in Old Town. He asks her what her dad's birthdays were like. She weeps as she talks about the 'orchard' her father started to celebrate everyone's birthdays.

    Dusty leads Janet to the back of her apartment and unveils a tree to plant in honor of her father. He starts digging and they bicker. She shoots him with a hose and they start making out. Jack arrives and tells them about Parker's confession. Dusty suggests that Janet help Jack with everything. Jack thanks him.

    At the station, Parker is returned from processing. He's in custody so he can't go home. Carly cries and tells him how wonderful he is.

    Im sick of Lucinda she doesnt care about Gabriel she only cares about screwing Craig over and controlling her family's life. I hate her and i hope she gets taken care of.

    You know a lot of us want Carly and Jack back together but all they do right now is blame each other for everything that happens. The recap says they yell at each other and then the what happens next section says Jack will move back in with Carly. They really need to remember what it is like to work together instead of against each other. Must be that makeup sex is just too good to resist LOL.

    Wow, there isn't one thing in today's shows that I want to watch. I can't believe they're adding in a new twist to make the Craig/Gabriel storyline even longer. I was really hoping they were wrapping it up.

    I'm glad Parker stepped up the the plate and confessed. He should have done it weeks ago. Parker, Carly and Jack made the situation worse by lying. Maybe the authorities will be lenient. If so, Parker should learn from this and try to stay out of trouble. As for Carly, STOP LYING FOOL!!! Jack can be a judgemental ass at times, but the truth is better than lying!! You and Jack have been through hell, and now you're back together. Jack needs to be more understanding and less judemental. After all, he killed Brad. Lucinda hates Craig and wouldn't miss an opportunity to stick it to him. Craig has stolen money, Wideworld, committed kidnapping, murder, attempted murder; all types of crimes. He got off scott free everytime. Now he's whining that he'd never kill his child. He caused Bryant to kill himself. Lucy was kidnapped and nearly killed. Excuse me?! Did that fool develop amnesia? Or should I say the writers did. (Let's not forget, years ago Craig was sterile and couldn't get Betsy pregnant. That's when he discovered she had slept with Steve Andropolous). Craig cannot father children. Yet everytime you turn around another kid pops up. In reality Lucy, Bryant, Johnny and Gabriel would have been fathered by other men. (Lord, I wish the fans were writing for these soaps instead of the lame writers. The stories would be better, more realistic, and following the shows histories). Finally, this was a good show. I'm looking forward to watching the tape later.

    Seriously Lucinda,
    that was cold blooded. Gabriel IS Craig's son, a liar and an opportunist.

    Every soap that I watch has a Carly and they are always self-centered liars. They claim to love their kids, but always lead them to lie and cover up crimes. Soap Carlys = Bad Mommies

    Dont forget that Craig did blow up the building where Gabriel was in, so it is his fault. He was too busy trying to get back in Carly's pants and replace the money he stole from Parker that he tried to collect the building insurance.

    Lies never remain secrets on any soap. It was about time that Parker told the truth and stopped listening to his conniving mother. Carly always has to cover things up when it comes to her children. Poor Jack is always the odd man out and finds out the truth anyway. Then, Carly has to feel the brunt of her actions of being so over protective. I cannot blame Jack for being angry with her.

    I cannot blame Lucinda for hating Craig because of what he did to Sierra and the rest of her family. He will eventually get his just desserts and should remember that payback is a B****. You reap what you sow and man, he had sown too many things and hurt too many people.

    What bugs me is the fact that no matter what Craig does, he always gets away scott free and never has to pay for his crimes. It's HIS fault his son almost died because he set the place on fire. IDIOT! Attempted murderer!

    If Craig is supposed to be sterile, how in the world does have all all these children? I know nothing about any cure for sterility. So....Who fathered all his children?
