    The Best Friend Anyone Could Have.

    Friday, July 09 2010
    Vienna scrambles, Katie tells the truth, Will and Gwen return and Barbara gets nowhere.

    At the hospital, Katie admits to Chris she doesn’t want him to leave, but she isn't sure she will ever be able to give herself to him. Chris thinks it will just take time, but she's not sure it will ever happen. She explains she felt single for the fist time at the wedding, but she couldn't take off her ring later at home. She took it as a sign that she's not ready to move on. They change the subject to Vienna and Henry. Katie thinks Vienna will come clean to Henry soon. She tells Chris he's been really great with her in regards to Henry and as they come close to kissing, Chris gets paged away.

    In Vienna's room, Henry tries to console her over the loss of their baby and he wants to talk to her doctor about it. Vienna insists he not do that as Katie walks in. Henry tells her Vienna had a miscarriage. Vienna gets Henry to back down on talking to the doctor and he leaves to get the car. Carly lashes out at Vienna for lying about a miscarriage. Vienna cries saying it was necessary, but Katie only sees that Henry is devastated and mourning a child that never existed. Vienna thinks they can make a real baby now and start their life together. She thanks Katie for being the best friend a person can have.

    Henry brings Vienna home and tucks her into bed. He says they have to figure out what went wrong so she doesn't go through this heartbreak ever again. She asks if he's sorry he married her now that there's no baby. He tells her to rest and says he loves her. He leaves their room and Vienna gets out of bed and exits herself.

    Katie finds Chris in the halls and explains what Vienna just told Henry. She doesn’t know what to do and leaves. Vienna then finds Chris to desperately ask him to tell Henry she is fine and can have more babies. Chris doesn't want any part of it, but Vienna threatens that Katie will get caught in the crossfire with Henry if he finds out the truth.

    Katie finds Henry at the bar and after he blames himself for what's happened, she blurts out there was never a baby.

    While sitting on a bench in Old Town, Paul sees Will, Gwen and Hallie. He's excited to see his family and tells them Barbara is on a cruise. They tell him Barbara was supposed to meet them in Carbondale yesterday so it doesn't make sense for her to have gone on vacation. Paul then updates them on Barbara and Henry and then Casey and Allison see Will and Gwen. Casey and Alison take Hallie to get some ice cream, leaving Gwen and Will to marvel over Casey and Alison's seemingly repaired relationship. Gwen goes to get the dirt as Will talks with Paul about what's going on with Barbara. Will doesn’t agree with Paul that she's on a cruise because she was supposed to watch Hallie for them while they went somewhere. Paul just thinks she needed to get away and Will asks about Paul's new calm, zen-like attitude. Paul catches him up on how good his life is and says he thinks Will worries too much, because Barbara is probably fine.

    Gwen, Hallie, Alison and Casey go to Al's and catch up. Alison and Casey explain what's been going on and claim they are just friends and all is forgiven. Once alone, Gwen questions Casey who explains he realized he wasn't perfect and he shouldn't have expected Alison to be either. She shares with him that she and Will are doing amazing. They discuss their past and his pregnancy scare with Vienna. Will and Paul come to Al's and Casey walks Alison back to work. Gwen and Will decide to stay at Barbara's place despite Paul offering his home to them. Gwen is cold to Paul and once he walks away Will asks her to be more polite to his brother. He also expresses his worry for his mother.

    Paul gets Will and Gwen settled into Barbara's and leaves. As they muse on Barbara's disappearance, Hallie finds Barbara's passport. Will and Gwen don't see it though and discuss how sweet it is to be back where everything started for them.

    The person Barbara heard outside the storage room leaves after she is unable to get his attention. She then decides it's time to put Chuckles away and finds another door in the process. She pries the door open, but it just leads to a brick wall. In a panic, Barbara brings Chuckles back out, as someone chloroforms her again. Barbara groggily wakes up, sees Chuckles and then hangs her head in dispair.

    Next Week on As the World Turns:

    Henry lashes out at Vienna.

    Katie worries she lost her best friend.

    Reed tells Luke he can't believe he's in a relationship with someone so naïve.

    Jack tells Carly he wants to be with her and kisses her.

    Craig asks Lily why then never got together.

    Barbara "Frickin" Ryan!!! I loved that so much! Colleen is a wonderful actress, I hope that she can receive an award for it even tho the show will be gone.

    Katie you came thru for your best friend a little late, but at least you finally came to your senses! She and Chris deserve each other since they are not either one the sharpest knife in the drawer. I just have to ff when she is on the screen, she is so annoying!

    Loved Will, Gwen, and Hallie today, always loved them. Was hoping that Will would talk Paul into thinking something was wrong with Barbara but instead Paul convinced him that she was alright!

    I already set my recorder for Monday, do not want to miss one second of Henry telling Vienna off...then I pray he turns around and lowers Katie!! Katie is getting way too much air time, some of the actors that have been around for years deserves it so much more than she does!

    Good show today and again no Janet, Liberty, or Gabriel!!

    Katie gets no points from me. She was part of the cover-up. She even came to the wedding. She could have pulled the plug long time ago, instead she asked Chris to compromise his licence and lie.

    Is it possible that Meg is out...or has Emily lost it? Who has Barbara?

    Posted by shorty1943 at Friday, July 09 2010 12:40 PM

    Blessed, I agree, no points for Katie!! She did everything she could to ruin hers and Henrys friendship and even tho I have not liked her for years, after what she has done to him....I cannot stand to even look at her. Wish they would have sent her off into the wild blue yonder with Meggie!!

    I am just not at all sure who got Barbara and of course that is how the writers want it....for no one to figure it out. Many are saying James and the way he keeps springing back to life, it just might be him. I just want her and Henry to have some time for us to enjoy them before the show goes off, that is not asking too much is it??

    Why do i believe its osmeone totally different than what we are lead to believe...Im soooo tired of Vienna, please send her away...and let Babs & Henry live it out til the end!!

    I don't post very often, but is it just me or when they show baby Eliza {Not sure if I spelled her name right} someone is always holding her with her head on their shoulder and mostly sleeping. I think I saw her once, awake and standing but for the most part she's always being held. Just can't help but notice.

    I think it seems too coincidental that Ally just received a letter from Mick earlier this week. Hum, could he be back as James again???

    Mick was so creepy...I just had to wonder what is wrong with Allison. Why now though would James kidnap Barbara?

    Vienna has gone off the deep end. If she really loved Henry, how could she put him through that heartach again.

    Oh, fullz! Good one! But, the 'comings and goings' said that Anthony Herrara will return as, I'm still confused. The gloves always seem to be on a slender, feminine, that's no help. Ack!

    I was sooooo delighted to see Will and Gwen! They are both such beautiful people! I hope that they stay for the rest of the show!

    Boyd's Bear Girl...I've noticed the same thing about Eliza! In fact, I mentioned it yesterday...she is ALWAYS sleeping! It's the only mode she is ever in! I wish the kids I'm around were that quiet!

    Shorty and the rest, I agree w/ everything you've said. I think Vienna is seriously in need of professional help...maybe she should try a Dr. in Sweden??? Katie should go with her. She is at her supreme most irritating!

    I am absolutely LOVING every minute with Barbara! I too, think Colleen deserves an Emmy!

    And, Henry? Henry deserves Barbara...the insanity has got to stop!
