    Congratulations For Not Hyperventilating.

    Monday, July 05 2010
    Vienna and Henry are married and Barbara is trapped.

    There are a lot of anxious glances from the wedding guests at Al's. After an awkward pause, Henry stutters and Paul hands him the rings. Chris worries the groom's head will explode. Katie says he always looks like that. Paul asks that the vows be shortened because his brother is so nervous... and drunk. They try exchanging rings but Henry's barely fits over his knuckle. Kim and Bob are surprised Barbara hasn't stormed in. Before the marriage is finalized, Vienna halts things so she can recite her own vows. The guests whisper among themselves as Vienna talks. Henry stares until Paul pokes him. The groom didn't prepare anything so he starts to babble and then he talks about the baby and how the child brought them together. Chris and Katie guess that Vienna didn't tell him the truth. The minister declares them man and wife. Emily congratulates him for not hyperventilating and hopes that Barbara is gone. Katie corners the bride and pulls her into a corner to confront her about not telling Henry. "Tell Henry what?" Henry asks, interrupting. Vienna claims that she had cold feet and prayed for guidance. Saint Lucia came and told her that she owed it to their child to get married and make things work. Katie cringes and tells her to be ashamed. Chris intrudes and tells her to back down. Henry's confused. Chris drags her away and Henry says Katie is just upset because she was supposed to be a godparent with Brad.

    Outside, Katie and Chris bicker. He tells her that Henry may have wanted to be tricked into this and it's done and none of their business. Henry will figure things out sooner or later and then he'll need a friend. She wishes she'd spoken earlier. So does he.

    Back inside, Kim worries about Barbara, which leads to bickering with Emily. Kim defends her niece and walks away. Henry strolls by and over to Vienna as she puts her powder in her milk. She claims it's anti-nausea powder. Paul wheels out the cake and toasts to the bride and groom. As Katie drinks champagne, Kim whispers to her, advising her not to let the bad things in life make her afraid of things that could be good. Vienna calls the women together to catch the bouquet, but Katie is the only one who isn't married. Reluctantly, she agrees to catch it. As Chris leads her out, she tells Henry she just wants him to be happy.

    Barbara wakes up in a warehouse and her eyes narrow in on a toy clown named Chuckles. After finding the chloroform rag that knocked her out, she stumbles around and begins to laugh to herself because she's surrounded by party supplies. She lights some birthday candles and finds some juice boxes. She rants to the clown about the 'tart' who snagged Henry away from her. Looking around, she wonders who would have done this to her. "Definitely a woman," she decides, assuming Vienna is the culprit. Mulling it over, she decides that might be too obvious. After eating some candy, she imagines that Katie must have done it and remembers when she was a 'scheming, needy Mata Hari'. Thinking it over, she decides that Katie is too 'white bread' to have done this. She decides that the only person evil enough to pull this off must have been Emily. "She eats people alive," she tells Chuckles before worrying that her son might have helped Emily. Barbara worries about being trapped in there forever and cries about things being over with Henry.

    Chris walks Katie home and she sadly wishes him goodnight. When she goes into her place, she begins taking off her ring but stops herself.

    Henry and Vienna go up to their place. As he carries her across the threshold, he's amazed she's so light. She makes him stay in the bathroom while she puts her fake belly away and turns out all the lights. When he joins her in bed, he stares up sadly.

    At Fairwinds, Paul assures Emily that he will never let anyone come between them again. Not even his mother. When she goes off, he calls his mom and leaves a message, telling her she is classy for skipping the wedding and asking her out for lunch.

    I'm still confused as to who kidnapped Barbara. It seemed obvious that Emily had done it...but, Katie slipped up when Chris mentioned her visit to Brad's grave in the morning.

    ***************FROM THE SPOILERS**************

    If Barbara ends up being in the party supply basement for several days...which it appears is going to happen...would Katie really do that? She is being all high and mighty over Vienna's not telling Henry the truth about the, I can't see her endangering someone like that. (Even tho I can't stand her...I'm giving her that much credit.)

    Emily, on the other hand, would have no qualms about leaving her there to die. She is DEFINITELY capable of that. And, now I think Vienna is too. The little creep. How completely deceitful she has become.

    Well...I just wish Barbara (and Henry) did not have to suffer so. I have enjoyed the past few episodes...too bad we have to suffer thru Janet and Dusty (not to mention Lily & and CarJack) tomorrow. They are soooo unfulfilling to watch nowadays!

    I have really been enjoying this S/L it is great IMO to see Colleen Zenk Pinter's acting. I am really going to miss Barbara. Loved seeing Bob/Kim. Loved Kim telling Emily off. I can't wait until John Dixon shows up. Now is a fine time for Katie to want to tell the truth. I hope Chris doesn't get involved with her but it looks like it's going to happen. Kim wouldn't be so nice to her if she knew Katie put Chris's career and freedom on the line to help trick Henry into marrying Vienna. I can't understand why Vienna would want to marry Henry when he obviously didn't want to marry her.

    I'm not sure who kidnapped Barbara, I think their might be some twist to this not sure who did it but I think Katie/Vienna are to obvious suspects, I think it will be someone else.

    Loved that they gave Barbara a lot of time today. Colleen is such a great actress and she did a great job. Wish someone would slap the you know what out of Vienna & Katie. How does Vienna expect Henry not to notice that the baby bump isn't there when they are in bed. CAN'T WAIT FOR HER TO TRY AND EXPLAIN THAT ONE AWAY!! Thought that it was great of Paul to help Henry out with the wedding vows as Henry seemed at a loss as what to say or do. Maybe they will wind up being good friends after all. As for Janet and Dusty tomorrow I can take them or leave them.

    I think Iris may be the one who kidnapped Barbara to force Will Gwen and Hallie to come to Oakdale. So glad to see Kim talk to Emily like she did. Emily deserved it. She is such a brat.

    Someone posted last week that they wouldn't be surprised if Iris was behind what happened to Barbara. After today's episode, I have to agree. As devious as any of these women are (Emily, Vienna, Katie) I don't think it's any of them. I do hope they don't drag this s/l into weeks.
    On another note, why is Katie acting so all and mighty towards Vienna now? She betrayed her best friend...even till the end she could have told him the truth but kept her big trap shut. Rolling my eyes, please Katie.
    I understand the actors are doing their best with the materials given, wish the writers were smarter.
    Tomorrow, I will be skipping the show because I can't take Janet. Please give Dusty his b@lls back..maybe then I will watch when they are on.
    When is my other favorite couple going to be on? (beside barb and Henry) Luke and Reid? So I can watch

    Can't wait for your other favorite couple to be on----I sure have missed them. LOL

    Wait for this to happen. Vienna is going to get sick because of the fertility crap she has been drinking, goes into the bathroom, comes out and tells Henry that she MISCARRIED their baby. Lying hussy! I cannot stand Vienna.
