    Friday, June 25 2010
    Jack and Janet do Lamaze, Craig scopes out new business and Meg gets out and flips out.

    Lucinda follows her daughter around her house and continues badgering her about Holden. Lily makes excuses but her mom won't drop it. Her mother wonders what she will do with the rest of her life, alone and lonely... Lucinda suggests that she come back to work for her. Lily just wants to be a mother but her mother thinks she needs to find some focus.

    At Carly's Jack tells her not to take the money Craig is offering her from the insurance company. She doesn't want to turn down five million dollars but Jack says it's not worth the pain it will cost her in the long run. She sends Craig away and then argues with Jack, claiming she needs the money for Parker. He says she can always count on him financially. She'd rather have cash in the bank. He shrugs and leaves.

    Barbara goes down to the cells to taunt Emily. She lets her know that Paul is moving Meg back into Fairwinds. Emily finds that hard to believe and Barb keeps pushing her buttons.

    Paul shows up at Memorial to get Meg and bring her back to Fairwinds with him. He assures her that Emily will never hurt her. Meg smiles.

    Janet is surprised to see Dusty walks into the farm house. She complains again about how he lied to her and insists that she is where she needs to be. After he leaves, Jack arrives. She complains about losing her Lamaze partner so he offers to take Dusty's position. She doesn't want him to feel obligated but he's eager to get involved.

    Carly takes the check to Java and shows it to Parker. He's stunned. She suggests that he give her the money instead of placing it in a trust again. He agrees to let her invest his money.

    Jack and Janet are touring the hospital birthing rooms and discussing labor. They talk about what great parents they will be. When they join the class, they face awkward questions from other parents. When the session ends, she tells him it felt natural to be there with him.

    At the Lakeview, Johnny gives Dusty a hug. Craig sends the child upstairs with the nanny and then offers Dusty a business deal. He wants to buy into WorldWide. Dusty's not interested. Craig threatens to use Johnny as leverage. Dusty bristles.

    Paul and Meg return to Fairwinds. He tries to get her to relax so she takes his hand. Emily and Barbara burst in and the arguments begin. Emily and Paul throw accusations around until Eliza is brought in. Emily bites her lip as Meg holds the baby. Paul orders Emily out and asks Barbara to leave as well. The women storm off. Meg gleefully talks about holding her child and goes upstairs with her and Paul. After they put her to bed, they go back downstairs once Meg has changed into something that shows more cleavage. She tells him how much this is like old times and wonders how she could show him how much this all means to her. As they get close, he says this might not be a good idea. He gets a business call and then declares he has to leave for Chicago. Paul agrees to leave her alone with Eliza as long as she agrees to call someone for help if she needs it.

    At the Lakeview, Emily calls her mom and thanks her for bailing her out. Barbara pops up and they launch back into their argument. Paul arrives and announces he's left Meg alone with Eliza. He threatens to have Emily arrested if she steps near his house. He plods off and calls Meg to check in, assuring her that he will see her tomorrow. She thanks him.

    Dusty drops by WorldWide to tell Lucinda what happened with Craig. She suggests they offer Craig a deal he can't afford so he can't complain that they didn't offer. Dusty smirks.

    Craig arrives at Lily's and hands her flowers. He thanks her for her support. She tells him not to blow his newest chance. He reminds her of the perfume company he wanted to start and suggests she run it with Carly but not tell her he's involved. She refuses so he tries to guilt her into it.

    At Fairwinds, Meg dumps a photo of Emily and Paul into a drawer. Emily suddenly shows up and challenges her to make her leave. She vows that she will get the truth, whatever it takes. Meg takes a bunch of pills and says she will convince the cops that she tried to poison her. Then she whips out a gun and levels it at Emily's head.

    Craig goes to see Dusty at WorldWide. Dusty hands him an estimate on what the business is worth. Craig thinks it's outrageous and threatens to keep Johnny away from him. Dusty won't negotiate so Craig vows this isn't over.

    At home, Carly meets with Lily and they discuss the perfume idea. They agree to put all of their differences aside so they can keep themselves busy.

    Next on As The World Turns:

    Chris and Katie kiss.

    Vienna asks Katie to hep her get rid of Barbara.

    Barbara turns to Henry for help saving Meg from Emily.

    Meg takes a shot at Emily.

    loved seeing dusty talk to janet about family aww and have scenes with lucinda and craig

    I absolutely cannot believe Jack is for real. Lamaze? Seriously? This is not going to go over well....with ANYBODY!

    Except of course, Mommy J and Daddy J.

    Give me a break.

    Wow, apparently Meg really is crazy (and all along I've been thinking she was just devious). She's got Emily right where she wants her, no need to break out the firearms! And where did she get that, anyway?

    Nice to see Paul, though. My favorite storylines (Paul/Meg/Emily and Henry/Babs/Vienna) are not getting nearly enough air time, they are wasting it all with the Dusty/Janet/Jack/Carly/Craig/who cares? mess.

    I am starting to wonder if Paul is on to Meg.

    Posted by Shortmetal at Friday, June 25 2010 01:18 PM

    I think Paul knows the truth. and as for Meg she did need to pull out the pills and the gun because she had Emily in a guilty position. Lucinda needs to mind her own business. Loved Barbara today

    Wonder how good of a shooter Meg is?

    Just watched the sneak peek video for next was awesome!!! Luke and Reid are the very first ones on the video. From the short scene shown, I can't wait to see the rest of what happens!

    And it looks like Vienna is finally going to get what's coming to her! Go Babs!!!!!!!!!

    And Meg's plan will be finally revealed! That is if anyone will believe Emily! And "Peteena", I think she got the gun out of Paul's safe. He always keeps one in there and Meg was watching him when he opened the safe and took out some papers. She probably remembers the combination and took it. That should be her downfall right there! That was her one really big mistake. She had enough sense to get Paul's gun to shoot Emily. Bad move on her part. Now, will Paul forgive Emily and, better yet, will Emily take him back!

    Will true love prevail? Will Meg hit her target? Will Henry finally come to his senses? These questions and more, hopefully, to be answered next week on another episode of As The World Turns! Key the organ music. Have a great weekend everyone in SoapsLand!

    i meant she didnt need to pull out the pills and gun

    I Hate the Janet and Jack thing,but they are both so hollier then thou, so maybe they should wind up together. I would like to see Carly and Dusty get together to talk about there situation, and maybe they could get a few sparks going, I would love to see Jack and Janets face if they were to see them together talking. Janet has to much pride to have Dusty help her, but she lets Jack help her. I was thinking that maybe Paul is not so sure Emily is guilty, so he set it up to be pretending to leave town to see what happens. I AM so sorry to see what they have done to Meg,I use to love her now she is just plain crazy. I can not see Barbara taking Megs side, she needs to go get Henry away from Vienna and let Paul work things out with Emily and Meg .

    Barb G, you are a good writer. Is Jack for real? Telling Carly to give back 5 million dollars to Craig. He wanted to take a mortgage on the house Carly and the kids live in to pay for a wedding. He can't afford anything. Dumb Janet is back at Emma's boarding house with Holden, Faith, Molly---Liberty, soon Meg again. This is too much.

    Did anyone notice that Janet did not over hear the part about Jack and Dusty talking about him lying about her inheritance? She didn't walk in on the conversation til later. I caught it right away and even did a rewind, as I tape them. The writers messed up there. Dusty had such a smirk on his face when he spilled the beans to Jack about her having a son. Between lying to Janet about the money and spoiling her surprise to tell Jack about the sonogram, Dusty will be lucky if he can salvage their relationship.
