    Until It Was Too Late.

    Monday, July 19 2010
    Henry searches for Barbara, Vienna goes on the run and Iris pops up.

    In the Lakeview massage room, Henry confronts Vienna and demands that she be honest with him about where Barbara is. She insists she has no idea where the other woman is. The argue and he refuses to back down though she is adamant that she had nothing to do with the disappearance. She claims that she went crazy with love but he doesn't think love hurts people. He refuses to forget or forgive. "I hate you," he says, before declaring that they are going to the police. She runs off in her sheet, locking him in.

    At the station, Katie is uncomfortable talking about what happened to Barbara but Margo demands some answers. She finally explains that Barbara called Vienna before she vanished. Katie admits that she knew about the fake pregnancy and feels terrible about everything. She goes over all of the details of Vienna's plan and the fake miscarriage. Will and Gwen gasps but Katie makes excuses for her friend. Will is sure that Vienna did something to his mom. He begins accusing Katie of protecting Vienna. Margo tells her little sister she has a lot of questions to answer.

    Margo and Will go to set free Henry at the Lakeview and question him. He fills Margo in and then Will demands to know what kind of games he's been playing with his mom. Henry wasn't playing games. He explains their convoluted courtship and how it developed into something strong. When he thought Vienna was pregnant, he tried to do the honorable thing, though he found it devastating. He admits that he still loves Barbara and rushes off to search for her.

    At WOAK, Chris calls Katie and leaves a message. His mom wanders over to check in. He tells her about the mess Katie is in. Kim's shocked when she hears all of the details and disgusted that Katie was involved. He makes excuses for Katie but she's disturbed when he admits that he stood by and never said anything.

    Alison and Casey are taking Hallie window shopping in Old Town before sending her off to get ice cream. The adults talk about being parents and he says it would have been a nightmare to share parenting duties with Vienna. When the little girl comes back with her cone, Ali and Casey discuss how they've stopped hating each other. He leaves for work and Gwen comes by to get her Hallie. She fills Ali in on the latest with the Vienna mess. Ali laughs about how unbelievable it is and then tells her about Casey's part in it. Will arrives and tells Gwen what else he has learned from Henry and they try to wrap their heads around it. He's sure something must be seriously wrong.

    At the hospital, Casey walks into an examining room and finds Vienna standing there in her sheet, begging for help. He refuses to get involved. She claims that Henry tried to kill her and Casey can understand why. He agrees to grab her some scrubs or something. When he walks into the corridor, he fills Ali in on what just happened. She tells him not to help Vienna and tells him what his mother suspects. He gulps when she informs him that Vienna was never even pregnant. They mull over the situation and she advises him not to get sucked into this anymore. Margo shows up and Casey tells her where Vienna is. When they return to the room, only the sheet is still there.

    Katie goes home and sees that she has twelve messages from Chris. She decides not to drag him into her mess though. Henry shows up and demands to know where Vienna is. Katie has no idea. He tells her that Vienna freaked out and ran away. Katie keeps apologizing but he wants answers and begins searching the apartment. After he searches, she tells him she was just trying to help. He says she's ruined his life and they can never go back to the way they used to be. She's desperate to help but he refuses to let her relieve her guilt. She never realized he really loves Barbara. "I didn't know it either... until it was too late," he says. Katie says she'll never be able to forgive herself for what she's done. He doesn't care and walks out.

    Will and Gwen go up to Barbara's room. She thinks she can smell his mom's perfume. He calls for her. Iris walks out, playing with Barb's perfume.

    Gwen tries to call the cops on Iris.

    Oh I am so glad it is coming back to Katie! Loved Kim's reaction! I wonder if it will come out about Chris's involvement in changing her medical records. I hope Kim fires her.

    Oh, goodness. It looks like we won't see Barbara tomorrow...we just get to be reaquainted with low life Iris. Yuck.

    I hope Henry never forgives Katie. And, hopefully, we won't see Vienna ever again. I'm hoping today was her last day. I am through with her lies and simpering.

    I want Barbara to be found....NOW!!! It's going to make me crazy waiting to see if she's still OK.

    Will was fantastic, as always. I hope he and Gwen are here for the rest of the show.

    Can't wait for Henry and Barbara to be reunited!

    Yes that song is playing in my head right now - "Reunited and it feels so good ...."

    I wonder if Iris is the person who kidnapped Barbara. How will Henry ever find her.

    I don't like Barbara and Henry together. I think that Emily is the one who kidnapped Barbara. Is Vienna leaving the show? I bet she got pregnant on her wedding night.

    Felt like telling Will to just stuff it several times today. The sooner the jerk leaves again, the better! He's acting like he was fathered by a Snyder rather than Hal. He's acting like he's never done anything wrong in his life. Hello? Killed Rose, didn't graduate from HS because he plagarized a paper, cheated on his wife of a few months. Yes, Will, you're so much better than the rest. NOT! As Emily told him, he hasn't bothered to come back to town in over two years, but presumes to think he knows so much more than those who have been around the whole time. He verbally attacks Em, Katie, and I'm sure Paul will be next.

    More Iris tomorrow, and we've still got Sierra and Lucy to hit town yet this week. No wonder finding Barbara is taking forever.

    I know I have read somewhere that Barbara is found and I think it is this week. Maybe it is Paul and Henry who find her. I like Henry and Barbara together. Soaps pair up old men with young girls all the time its nice to see a cougar in

    I read on another site where Emily finds Barbara in the wine celler at Fairwinds. (Hope I didn't spoil too it for too many of you). But this was just too good to keep secret.
    How did Iris get into Barbara's apartment? You can be sure that she is up to no good. Hope that Will kicks her to the curb and sends her on her way with Vienna.

    I still think that James Stenbeck is the culprit. I heard that he is coming back to the show before it goes off the air. He and Barbara have a very long history together. But Iris, could also be involved. Yeah, Gwen, call the police on Iris. No good ever comes from any of her visits.

    I also read the "spoiler" about Barbara being found this week by Emily in the wine cellar. However, in the "spoilers" for next week, it says "Henry and Paul step up their search for Barbara". So who knows when she'll be found, where at and by whom. Poor woman will be dehydrated and have a really bad bladder infection from not having a potty to use for all this time!!!

    Way to go Henry!!! About time Katie got put in her place!

    And Kim was GREAT!!! I'd like to see her tell Katie a thing or two. All in all, enjoyed the show today.

    Have a good evening everyone!
