    Did I Win A Beauty Pageant?

    Friday, July 30 2010
    Lily is lured away to France, Janet pushes Blackthorn away and Lucy and Dusty get intimate.

    Blackthorn runs into Dusty at Java and taunts him because he's taking Janet out to the baseball game. Dusty tries questioning him and Blackthorn tells him to get a life.

    Lucy shows up at the farm house looking for her brother. Janet tells her he's off work today and invites her in for lemonade. They chat about Dusty and stuff. Lucy assures her that he's just her ex. Janet glares as Lucy talks about how rocky things can be with Dusty. Lucy gets confused when Janet tells her about moving into the cabin. Janet tries staking her territory when Blackthorn arrives to pick up Janet. Suddenly, she's not feeling well.

    Lily shows up at Craig's door with some flowers. "Did I win a beauty pageant?" he asks. She wanted to apologize for whining to him about Holden's marriage and wanted to thank him for his help. Lily asks him out for dinner.

    Craig and Lily go down to the dining room and toast to a future of good choices. They talk about their night in New York and laugh. Lucinda comes in and stares. She slips off and calls Francoise to come up with something else to ruin Lily's company. Francoise calls Lily and tells her they lost her spices and production has to stop. Craig tells Lily not to worry about the cost of keeping production alive. She's worried about all of their debt but Craig isn't. She decides that she has to talk to Carly immediately, though he claims she doesn't need to drag her into it.

    At home, Carly is admiring the work she did on a wedding dress when Jack walks in. He tells her she looks great with the dress and they flirt. They change the topic to Craig and Lily.

    Holden and Molly wander around Old Town and talk about how she flubbed her lines at the dress rehearsal. They make out until Abigail interrupts them. When Molly leaves to check on her dress, Abigail asks her dad how Lily is taking the wedding. He changes the topic.

    Blackthorn and Lucy take Janet to the hospital to get her checked out.

    Lucy finds Dusty drinking at the Lakeview and joins him at the bar. She tells him about Janet and Blackthorn. Dusty thinks she is taunting him.

    In his room, Craig is calling around about the factory when he discovers that it's all a scam. He immediately calls Lily and leaves a message before ordering a car to the airport.

    Jack and Carly arrive at Metro for the rehearsal dinner. Jack toasts to the bride and groom. Abigail takes out a poem and her mom starts to cry. As she reads it, Lily walks in. She stays at the back and listens until Carly spots her and ushers her into a corner. Lily tells her about the latest disaster and says she's heading to France to sort it out. When Carly asks her about Craig, Lily gets defensive until Holden approaches and asks what she's doing there. She assures him she's not there to cause trouble and asks him to tell Molly she's beautiful.

    Blackthorn takes Janet back to the farm house and makes her tea. He puts on some music and tells her his feelings for her haven't changed. After they discuss their prom, he gets her to dance with him. He starts to kiss her as Dusty walks by the window. Dusty storms off as Janet pushes Blackie off, telling him to go. He warms up her tea instead and she starts to nod off at the table. She wakes up a few hours later and wonders why he is still there. She tells Blackie that they have no future. He can't see why she keeps wasting herself on men who don't understand her. "You're my angel," he says. She shows him the door.

    Lucy goes to Dusty's room to apologize. She walks in and they start to make out before jumping into bed.

    Francoise calls Lucinda to tell her that Lily is on the way to France to deal with the disaster. She worries about the next step. "Maybe it's time to let everything blow up," Lucinda says. She calls Holden and stutters as she tells him how worried she is about Lily running off to France. Holden doesn't understand so she tells him to forget all about it.

    At Metro, the party breaks up. Holden and Molly look forward to their marriage and then split up for the night. Holden tells Jack that he's going to France and it's not for a bachelor party. Jack is shocked that he seriously wants to run off to France on the night before his wedding but Holden is sure he can be back in time.

    Jack stops by Carly's to say goodnight. He explains that he took Holden to the airport and he's headed to France. Carly flips out and wonders how he could let this happen.

    Lily arrives in France looking for the perfume factory and discovers that it doesn't exist. Craig pops up.

    Molly wonders why Holden went after Lily.

    Lily wonders why Holden came after her.

    Barbara gets shot.

    Lucy is so pathetic. She knows Dusty moves on quickly. Her time with him has passed.
    Holden please make up your mind, Lilly or Molly?

    Craig & Lily work, so I give it 2 thumbs up!

    Janet has made more trips to the hospital with this pregnancy than I can count! Do ya think the reason might be because this baby is farther along than even the doctors know and that would mean that it's Dusty's!!!

    And why does Holden have to rush off to Paris to "rescue" Lily, especially the night before his wedding?

    And would somebody please put a sock in Lucinda's mouth!!! I hope John Dixon gets here soon and puts her back in her place! He was always good at that...

    This show is ending in seven weeks right? How many more people are they going to resurrect from the past and bring back? It's just becoming more of a jumbled mess every day...and now Chris may have some "obscure tropical virus"! He's been back for how long? Oh please, just put an end to this madness and give us some storylines with some continuity instead of skipping all over the place!!!

    And Babs looks pretty good for a woman without any water, food (she hasn't been seen eating candy since the first day) or bathroom, not to mention no purse with any makeup. Like to know what brand she uses cause it really lasts!!! Even the lipstick!!!

    Have a great weekend everyone...

    I sure wish ATWT wasn't going off the air. Now look what they are replacing it with. What a bummer. I will definetly miss this show since I have watched it for over 30 years. They are bringing in John, but why wait for the show to be over to do that. The writers should of had some of the old characters back in Oakdale along time ago. I really will miss Jack and Carly. Oh crud I will miss everyone, except Luke and his friend. Not into that at all. Thanks for fastforwarding. Wish some other channel would take over ATWT.

    I have been wishing that something would save it but I think its a done deal. But I wish they would end things a little better than they are doing its a mess.

    Barbara gets shot??!??! NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    angellove: I agree with everything you said!!!!
    Am anixous to see what happens with Barbara on Monday. As far as what they are replacing ATWT with I believe that CBS is definitely going to lose out big time. I know that after Y&R is over that I will be turning off CBS.

    Dusty only has eyes for Janet and any other woman is just keeping Janet's spot warm. Any woman can see it and Sierra said as much last week. I wouldn't want a man who didn't go looking for me once I left. He has every resource in the world to find her if he wanted her in the last five years. Today Dusty was thinking of Janet and went looking for her and no one else. I wouldn't want another woman's scraps. Janet made it clear that she has room for one man in her heart and even though things are ambiguous (and complicated as Mr. Donovan put it), she is meant for Dusty.

    I agree that contrary to what Janet (and Dusty and Jack) thinks, she is closer to the end of her pregnancy. Maybe there's something about Dusty that makes it hard to conceive and carry babies to term. Can you imagine how happy he'll be if he is the father of his beloved's baby?
