    Not My G-Man Anymore.

    Friday, June 18 2010
    Craig looks for a way out, Carly and Jack part ways and Jack finds out about his son.

    At Lily's, Lucinda shows her daughter the latest articles about Molly murdering Silas. Lily insists this is none of their business but Lucinda won't drop it. Lily wants serenity and claims Holden is a grown man who can look after himself. Gabriel wanders out and asks to borrow her car. Lucinda groans and wishes he would go away. Lily and her mother continue bickering about Holden and Lucinda tells her to fight for him. She goes off to make breakfast and Lucinda tells Gabriel to leave town. He begins taunting her and she thinks he's turned out exactly like Craig. He yells at her and she leaves. Lily returns and they bicker. She thinks he needs an attitude adjustment.

    In the cells, Craig mopes after Tom tells him he will have to wait two week for his hearing. Tom reminds him of all the charges he just added but Craig misses his sons. They debate how to handle the case and Tom thinks they need to get him a sponsor to get him out. Craig wonders who owes him a favor. Lucinda drops in and he tells her he's getting out on bail. They taunt each other and he threatens to kill her. She rants about what a terrible father he is until Lily arrives and sends her mom away. Craig thanks Lily for coming. After asking about his son, he tells her that his mother has been manipulating his son. "Here's what you can do to make it right," he says. Using some guilt, he gets her to help him.

    At home, Carly is on the phone, trying to talk a school into accepting Parker. She's shocked when they tell her the price tuition would be. They hang up on her when she gets flippant. Jack shows up with papers to have the charges against Parker expunged from his record. They begin arguing about her saying he wasn't Parker's father. She claims he was being rash but he's sure that's how she really feels. He doesn't know where they can go at this point; they're too different from each other. Crying, she worries he's not her 'G-Man' anymore. He offers to pay for Parker's schooling but she refuses. She swears she didn't mean what she said. "Sometimes all the trying in the world isn't enough and it's no one's fault," he says, walking out.

    Dusty is at Al's visiting Janet. She giggles about her son and practices saying 'son' over and over. She thinks things are finally working out. He pulls out the engagement ring, but she declares she has to tell Jack about the baby. He pockets the ring and walks off. Liberty comes in. She's miserable so her mother hugs her. Libby begins telling her about Gabriel and how he doesn't seem to have a conscience. Her mother suggests she step away from him. Liberty admits she feels tempted by him. They mull over Liberty's options and Janet offers to help her out anyway she can.

    Janet and Carly run into each other in Old Town. Janet babbles until Carly begins mocking her and tells her that her life stinks. Janet claims she's not living 'a charmed life' and they start hurling insults. Carly says she doesn't want Jack anymore; she has her eyes on a bigger prize.

    Dusty goes to the Lakeview and makes some romantic arrangements. When he turns around, he runs into Jack and accidentally tells him that he's having a little boy. Jack stares. "Janet is having my son, not yours - don't forget that," Jack says. He wishes that he has told Janet that he's been lying to her about the inheritance money. Janet just happens to arrive and overhear this and stomps over to confront Dusty.

    Gabriel finds Liberty at Java and they argue about his behavior. He thought they had something special. They sit down and talk. She's scared of what might happen between them. She can't give into her feelings while he is so angry.

    Carly goes over to the station and asks Tom how much money Craig could get from the insurance. He says there won't be any money as long as arson is suspected. She wants that money but he doesn't think that's very likely. She immediately calls the insurance company to talk about the 'accident'.

    When Lily gets home, her mother is waiting with a gift for Gabriel. As they bicker, Gabriel heads for the door. Craig suddenly walks in and begs him not to go.

    Next on As The World Turns:

    Meg moves back in with Paul.

    Holden wants to marry Molly immediately.

    Lily tells Holden she still loves him.

    go dusty and janet love how they both told off jack and carly

    Carly is a one woman wrecking crew. She poisons everyone. Look at how she is teaching her kids to lie and deceive when it suits them. Isn't part of AA recovery making an attempt at HONESTY?
    Wow, she has not learned anything.

    Janet needs to be happy she has Dusty who care so much about her.
    Jack wants an ideal that doesn't exist--a truth telling, rational and kind Carly Tenney. Sorry but that is opposite everything Carly is.

    Im sick of Lucinda butting in on other people's storylines

    Jack needs to stop being in denial. He is a self-righteous prick and needs to take a long hard look at himself. Janet and Dusty boring, so is Liberty and Gabriel. Craig, Katie(female Craig) and Lily, no longer interested in. With the current storylines, it is getting more and more difficult to stay with this soap to the end. This was a wonderful soap and the writers have and continue to totally destroyed it.

    It's true about Carly. They worked hard to make her nuanced and interesting -- trying to do the right thing, sometimes failing but at least trying -- and now they are dismantling their work. Maybe they feel they need to keep Jack and Carly apart until September?

    Jack seemed to be learning too, about the shades of gray in life..

    On the other hand, the Luke/Reid story is quite good, that Reid thought Luke should just wait for him is lovely in it's naivety, he is a genius but almost childlike in his attempts at relationships. actually it's refreshing sometimes from Luke's over emotionality... so maybe they have different writers for the two storylines

    also, is reid on a shorter contract? why is that storyline so minimized?

    I suppose if they know the show is ending cutting cost corners is inevitable? why sink new investment into something that has no long term prospects.

    Though I don't think Lily and Craig is a good combination, they might be the best couple to take Gabriel in.
    Jack and Carly are a mess; they need to move on without each other.
    Emily should also move on without Paul. They're both batting a million for failed relationships.
    I hope Craig cleans Lucinda's clock when he gets out of jail.

    They can minimize the L/R story line all they want, as far as I'm concerned they can cut it out altogether!!
    Hope that they start bringing back some of the original members of the cast as the story lines now are just blah.

    It almost seems like the writers just don't care anymore and don't really know what to do until it's time to wind things up and they are just making unnecessary and/or stupid complications to pass the time. They have ruined almost every couple on the show, and yet they continue to spend time on those storyline and not give much time to the ones that have some life in them (Luke/Reid/Noah, Henry/Vienna/Barbara). The only good thing I can say about today's episode is that at least Katie wasn't in it.

    Sad to see what the writers have done to this long running soap! Awful S/L's. I didn't understand ATWT's thinking when they have been adding all these new characters when they knew the show was going off the air. I thought they should have started trying to tie up S/L's,instead of starting new S/L's. They had the perfect opportunity to end Katie S/L's when they had her a good bye party and she could have lived happily ever after with Simon. The baby could be Dusty's and that family could also leave town, taking care of Dusty/Janet/Liberty, and they would have more time for original cast S/L's in their final months. JMO

    I could tell my Friday's previews of Mondays show that the nerve-wracking , flapping mouth Janet is going to give Dusty heck about the inheritance money, that he has given her, and having her think it was from her dad. Good grief, Janet, YOU WERE LIVING WITH YOUR EX-HUSBAND , Jack and his wife Carly!!!! Why is Janet so darned hard to please? Dusty should just wipe his hands off her. He has done everything for Janet and Liberty, yet Janet still acts like a blubbering idiot. Jack should have kept his mouth shut and not said all that stuff to Dusty. I hope the baby is really Dusty's. I think Janet is farther along in her pregnancy than they think, and Dusty is the father. JANET AND LIBERTY NEED TO LEAVE TOWN!!!
