    Taking One For The Team.

    Monday, June 21 2010
    Lucinda plots, Craig stalks around and Janet fights with Dusty.

    At the Lakeview, Janet flips out at Dusty after Jack tells her that the money she got was from him, not her father. Dusty defends his choice but she thinks he was trying to buy forgiveness. "You made me feel like I lost my father twice," she says, storming off. He takes out the engagement ring and stares at it.

    At her place, Carly meets with a man from the insurance company. She puts the blame for the fire on Gabriel's incompetence. As she goes on about 'poor Craig', Parker walks in. Once the adjustor is gone, Carly tells her son that getting Craig off is the only way he'll get his money back. In that case, he doesn't want it and wishes she would concentrate on fixing things with Jack instead.

    Lucinda freaks out when Craig walks into Lily's. Lily explains to her mother that she bailed Craig out. Faith walks in and Gabriel storms out with Craig trailing after him. Lucinda wonders what her daughter is doing inviting an arsonist and a grifter into her house. Lily sends her daughter off and then explains herself to her mother. Lucinda lists his crimes so Lily lists theirs and refuses to change her mind. Her mother thinks she's just looking for a hobby because she's miserable about Holden.

    Outside, Craig thanks his son for coming forward with the truth. They bicker and Gabriel strides off. The insurance adjustor walks up and tells Craig to call Gabriel back. Craig offers to answer his questions, though it soon becomes apparent that he doesn't know anything about his son. The adjustor wonders about sabotage and tells him what Carly hinted at.

    Parker shows up at the station. Jack excitedly tells him that he and Janet are having a boy. They look at a photo of Hal and Jack explains that he taught him to be a good cop. Parker tells him that all the times he's screwed up don't matter; what counts is the times he gets things right. As they hug, Janet walks in. She's miffed when Jack tells her he already knows her news. Parker heads off and Janet shows Jack a sonogram.

    Parker runs into Gabriel on the street and orders him to stay away from Liberty. They taunt each other and Parker says Liberty would never hook up with him. Gabriel claims they already have. Parker rants about how Liberty would never want him and Gabriel decides to stick around town just to stick it to him.

    Craig stalks over to Carly's and nearly kicks her door in. She mocks him and he tells her she will pay. He accuses her of trying to pin the blame of his son. When he offers to confess, she tells him just to blame it all on an electrical fault so they can get the money.

    Dusty goes back to his place and hangs out with Johnny. Craig shows up and Johnny leaps into his arms. He explains that he's out on bail so everything is going back to normal. Dusty growls as Johnny packs.

    Faith and Lucinda are still at Lily's. Lucinda tries to explain why Lily is acting so strangely. They exchange gossip and Lucinda moans that they will never get rid of Gabriel... unless... "You're a pretty girl. It might be an achievement to take one for the team," Lucinda suggests. Her granddaughter asks her if she's asking her to sleep with Gabriel. Actually, Lucinda wants her to plant some drugs on Gabriel. Lily returns and wonders why they both look so guilty. After Faith goes out, Lily accuses her mother of undermining her family and insists that she can look after things herself. She admits that she made a terrible mistake and still longs for Holden. Her mother tells her that she still has a chance with him.

    Jack and Janet go to Java and look at the sonogram. They discuss names and chuckle until Dusty arrives. Jack makes himself scarce. Dusty sits with her and shows her the ring. She tells him she can't marry him and asks about Jennifer. He doesn't want to talk about her and gets uncomfortable. Janet admits that she still loves him because he listens and has quiet confidence. She wishes he could love her enough to respect her and tell the truth instead of trying to fix things. She's giving up the apartment and will go it alone.

    Gabriel returns to Lily's and begins bickering with Faith. He tells her that she should get behind his relationship with Liberty so she can have Parker. Lucinda walks by them, telling him not to get too comfortable. Faith tells Gabriel he should be afraid of her grandma.

    At home, Carly is calling around for money when Parker comes home. He's decided that he wants his money back.

    loved dusty and janet talking to each other the love is still there.

    The only thing that could have made this episode more boring would have been actually HAVING Liberty present, instead of having all three of the teens yammering about her. ENOUGH! Wake me up when something interesting appears. Even Craig and Lucinda couldn't keep me awake today, the teens kept me dropping off. Plus the idiocy of the stupid insurance adjuster who takes the word of CARLY without checking with cops.

    I'm sick of Lucinda trying to run everyone life. Give her a man of her own so she can get a life.

    I'm sick of parker mooning over Liberty, Gaberial obsessing over Liberty and Faith being jeakous of Liberty. In fact I'm sick of Liberty period.

    Janet get off you high horse please and Dusty stop mooning.

    Jack...oh never mind I don't have the stomach for him.

    Craig...see my above comment for Jack.

    Lily find a man other than Holden or Demon and PLEASE try to be happy.

    I want Luky and Reid to go off inot the sunset together giving Noah the finger on the way.

    I want Babs and Henry to be together because they both need to be happy.

    End of my rant.

    Well,well----looks like tomorrow is another L/N/R PUKE BUCKET,FASTFORWARD DAY.

    How exactly is Lucinda better than Craig? At least Craig owns up to his madness. Getting Gabriel to lie to the cops to get rid of Craig, now she wants her granddaughter to pin drugs on Gabriel to get rid of him.
    Yikes. Lucinda Walsh is a hypocrite and a meddling old bag.

    Luke and Reid are the only reason I watch! Can't wait until tomorrow.

    Lucinda needs to stop meddling and get a LIFE! Janet needs to stop being a hypocrite, stop clinging to Jack and move on with Dusty! Lily definitely needs to move on! Parker needs to move on!! Looks like the writers are trying to reunite Jack and Janet. Maybe those judgemental fools belong together. I'm sick of this merry-go-round! Writers, put Carly and Dusty together. Do it!! I'd love to see Janet's and Jack's reactions then. They would break their ankles rushing over to break them up!!!

    I totally agree with you. Put Carly and Dusty together dating and see the color of green that Jack and Janet would turn. At least with Dusty Carly would never have to worry about money again. This is the last week of filming so the ending has already written and played out. The way the writers are writing right now it looks as if we fans are going to truly be disappointed with the outcome. I dread it.

    I'm with you Angele Lanclos. Finally a reason to watch. You're so right...Luke and Reid are the only reason I watch now. (Except for Henry and Barbara.) Can't wait until tomorrow!

    And please, let us have some quality time with Luke and Reid tomorrow!!! Not just three short meaningless scenes like last week. Was totally ticked over that! And Keelex I feel the same way you do about Noah, except I'd do more than just give him the finger!!! What an A-1 jerk he has turned into. He definitely doesn't deserve Luke and Luke deserves a whole lot better and has found it in Reid!

    I so enjoy a good love story, no matter what the gender of the characters may be, and these two have so much chemistry between them that you can see and feel it. True love is matter what your sexual orientation may be.
