    It Always Ends Badly.

    Tuesday, July 13 2010
    Lily and Craig play into Lucinda's hands, Parker gets a new job, and two estranged couples grower closer.

    At Al's, Dusty tells Janet Craig is keeping him away from Johnny as pay back for the World Wide situation.

    In her office, Lucinda talks with Francoise on the phone and they discuss how they are setting Craig up to fall, as the deal Lily and Carly have made is bogus. Dusty comes to Lucinda to talk about Craig and she assures him things always end up badly for him.

    After Jack rides Parker about getting a summer job at the farm, Parker gets a call to do a commercial for a tennis sportswear line. He tells Liberty and Faith about it as Gabriel works on furniture for Janet's new place. Parker leaves and Gabriel disdainfully discuses Parker new gig with Liberty. Faith comes out after changing and says she's going to watch Parker's photo shoot. Liberty and Gabriel get in a fight about Parker and she leaves to go watch the shoot as well.

    Jack comes to see Carly at her house as she prepares to leave town to sign contracts for Carlisle. They discuss Parker, as he runs in the door telling them about his new job. He just needs an okay from them, but Carly says he can't do it because she can't be there with him. Parker pleads with Carly and Jack asks to talk to her alone. After Parker has left the room, Jack convinces Carly Parker should do this and Carly says she'll cancel her trip.

    Lily waits at home for Carly with Craig. As they talk, Craig declares he has come to realize how selfish he is and knows he's done terrible things to people. He feels he's been given a second chance and Lily thinks this is a great step forward for both of them. Lily gets a call from Carly who says she can't go on their trip, so Lily will have to sign the contracts herself. Lily understands and they hang up. Lily tells Craig she doesn’t want to go to the meeting alone and asks him to go to New York with her. She says they'll just go for the day, but he worries about being too high profile. She ultimately convinces him and they leave.

    Lily and Craig arrive in New York to meet with Francoise. Lily tells her Craig is their financial advisor but asks her not to mention his presence there to anyone. After going over the contracts, Lily signs the papers, which completes the sale of the perfume factory. Francoise gets a phone call and tells them all the airports have been shut down due to a baggage handler strike so they will have to stay the night. Once they've left, Francoise calls Lucinda to tell her it's done. Lucinda revels in Craig falling into her trap. Francoise tells her Craig was there as Lily's financial advisor and they had to stay the night tonight. She also says they seemed very chummy.

    Lily and Craig go to an airport hotel, which Lily thinks it's a dump. She wants an additional room, but Craig informs her there are no other rooms and no extra cots either. They flip for who gets the bed and Craig says if it's heads he get the bed, if it's tails they share it.

    Back at the farm, Jack and Carly tell Parker he can take the job. Jack offers to tag along, which pleases Carly and they flirt.

    At the tennis courts, Carly goes over the contracts and offers her opinion on Parker's wardrobe. Parker goes to change and Jack tells her how impressed he is with her. After Parker changes, he sees Faith, who feeds his ego, and he is happy to see her. Jack and Carly look on with pride at Parker as he shoots the commercial and inch closer to each other. On a break, Carly goes over the particulars with the producer, as Parker teaches Faith how to play tennis. Liberty walks up as Parker and Faith have fun on the court and thinks it was stupid to come. Carly and Jack note how well things worked out for Parker and then Jack asks Carly to dinner. Carly tells him he's on.

    After Dusty leaves Al's, Janet sees Johnny with his nanny walking outside. She runs out and tells them to come have lunch inside. The nanny has errands to run so Janet suggests Johnny stay there until the nanny is done running around. She brings Johnny inside and calls Dusty to come back to the restaurant. Dusty rushes over and thanks Janet before he sits down with Johnny. The nanny calls Janet and tells her Craig went out of town, but he can stay with Janet for the afternoon.

    Janet, Dusty and Johnny go to the movies and then Dusty offers to take Janet to dinner. She balks at first, but then agrees to meet him at Metro.

    Next on As the World Turns:

    Craig wonders why he and Lily never got together.

    Reed asks Luke on a date.

    Janet introduces Blackthorn to Dusty as her old friend Tony.

    Jack tells Carly he wants to be with her.

    I love the look on Liberty's face today when she saw Parker actually having fun with a girl and he wasn't drooling over her. That was priceless. Parker who???? LOL!!!! Best moment of the show today.

    I actually didn't skip pass Janet today which is surprising since I normally do because I can't stand her. I think it was because Johnny was there with her and he is just so adorable. I loved the preview of Luke and Reid. Reid asking Luke on a date to the movies made my day. I was very happy with it especially the thought of them in a dark movie theater having a hot make out session! I can't wait until tomorrow.

    First of all, I was happy that Janet could arrange Dusty and Johnny spending some time together.

    I think it's good for Liberty to see Parker having fun with another girl (even if she is his cousin)!

    Actually Parker and Faith are not biological Cousins, and only 2nd cousins through Jacks adoption of Parker!

    Craig and Lily should have done research and not signed the contract. They will lose millions of dollars. I don't like the idea of them getting involved; Craig will use Lily and hurt her.(Lucinda should be ashamed of herself, Lily will resent her actions. She won't ask her for help in future deals). I liked the scenes with Jack and Carly; Dusty and Janet bonding/getting closer again. (I think both couples will be reunited before the show ends). Parker and Faith looked cute together. Liberty was shocked and jealous; it's time she realized Parker has moved on. (She used Parker anyway; and she's into Gabriel now. He will use her and she will know how Parker felt). Once again Janet helped Dusty spend time with Johnny. They would make a good family. It was a very good episode; wish I had taped it.

    It was good to see Jack, Carly and Parker today and their interaction as a family. It was good to see Liberty realize that Parker is starting to get other interests I hope other than her. Way to go Faith!!!! I hope Lily and Carly don't lose their business as a result of Craig, but it's time Craig got his. Can't wait to see Henry!!!!!

    DanElk, I know that Parker and Faith are not BIOLOGICAL cousins but they've grown up emotionally as cousins their entire lives.

    I truly LOVED when Dusty twirled around as he came into Al's. It was random but fun!
