    Cutting Their Losses.

    Tuesday, August 03 2010
    Molly makes a decision, Blackthorn calls in his marker, and Luke needs time.

    Craig bursts into Lucinda's office and assumes she was the one who set Lily up with the fictitious factory. He also assumes she knew he was bankrolling Lily and was trying to bankrupt him. She denies it and wants him to take responsibility. Lucinda says if Lily is ruined it's on him. Craig vows to expose her to Lily if he finds out she had a hand in this. Craig leaves and Blackthorn comes out to discuss the next step in his plan with Lucinda.

    Blackthorn finds Craig in Old Town and brings up how Craig lost the money he loaned him on a factory that didn't exist. Blackthorn says he has to cut his losses and he's calling in his marker. Craig can't come up with the money right now, but Blackthorn says the people he reports to don't play nice like he does. He gives him 24 hours with interest in full and makes a veiled threat against Johnny if he doesn't pay up.

    In Canada, Lily realizes how much Holden loves Molly and bribes the pilot with a diamond Holden once gave her in order to get him home to Molly. Holden tells her she didn’t need to do that, but Lily knows it's time to let go no matter how much it hurts.

    At the farm, Carly takes action to distract Molly from Holden not being there and pretends to hurt her ankle. Carly thinks she should go to the hospital but Molly should get ready. She asks her to postpone the wedding until she gets back and Molly says of course. She asks Jack, who is in on her plan, to help her to the car. As Jack brings Carly outside, she fesses up that she really did hurt herself.

    Upstairs, Abigail tells her mother how much she admires her. Abigail asks if Molly is upset with Holden for going after Lily. Molly knows she and Holden love each other and nothing else matters. Molly gets dressed in her wedding gown and notices her daughter is upset. She questions her if it's about the guy she's been seeing. Abigail tells her mother he is married and is just one more in a long list of what-am-I-thinking-guys. Molly urges her not to settle and to hold out for someone who is all hers. Abigail says, "Just like you did."

    Lily drops Holden off at the farm and tells him to be happy. Holden walks inside and finds Molly who has changed out of her wedding dress. He wonders why she isn't at the wedding and she tells him there isn't going to be one. They talk about Lily and Molly tells him she's leaving. He wonders why and she says maybe for the first time he should have said no to Lily, especially on their wedding day. He promises it won't happen again, but she knows better. He thinks they can get past this and she thinks they could and she could make him happy, but she won't sit around and wait until he runs after Lily again. He wants to promise to love her forever and he asks her to give him the chance to make it happen. She wants a man she doesn’t have to share with another woman and can't believe the example she's set for their daughter. She doesn’t want to settle for a man who loves someone else more than he loves her. She gives him her ring back and walks out of the room.

    Lily comes home and finds Lucinda. They talk about the fake factory, but Lucinda also tells her daughter Holden's wedding is off. Lily wonders if she had something to do with it by asking Holden to come to France. Lucinda fesses up but says Holden made his own choice. Lucinda thinks Holden will come back to her and reminds Lily to thank her when he does. After Lucinda has left, Holden comes over to check on the kids. Lily says she's sorry, but he tells her it's not her fault. She assures him it's not his either, but he's not so sure.

    Still outside, Blackthorn calls Lucinda to tell her Craig is right where they want him.

    Jack brings Carly into a hospital room and flirts with her as he looks at her ankle. He says they could have just rescheduled the wedding but Carly reminds him how things can change in just one day. Abigail calls Jack to tell him the wedding is off.

    Carly and Jack run back to the farm and find Molly. Carly tells her cousin she can't give up on this. Abigail comes out to say her goodbyes to Carly and Jack. Alone, Molly assures Carly leaving Holden is the right thing to do, but encourages Carly to fight for Jack. Jack comes in and Molly says she'll come back to Oakdale when they set a wedding date. Molly leaves and Carly gets upset because weddings get to her, especially the ones that don't happen.

    At the Lakeview, Luke tells Faith and Parker about the wedding getting called off, as Reid tries to answer the younger kids' questions. Luke laughs at his uncomfortable demeanor and takes over. Luke, Reid and the kids walk away, as Parker consoles Faith.

    Reid and Luke go upstairs to Holden and Molly's room in the Lakeview. Reid thinks they should take a breath before packing everything up and going back to the farm. Luke thanks Reid for helping with the kids, but turns away when Reid moves in for a kiss. Luke explains he's only been with Noah and he associates everything like this with him. He asks for time, but Reid notes patience isn't his best asset. Luke kisses him for encouragement.

    Next on As the World Turns:

    Henry grabs the phone and tells Katie he found Barbara.

    Barbara vows to never turn over her life savings to Iris.

    Gwen wants Iris to stay with Paul.

    Katie wonders why Chris wants to be chief of staff.

    Why did they bring Molly back? Please do NOT put Holden and Lily back together. They are not the Reva and Josh (from GL) of ATWT.

    Fullz---ITA, Not like leslie kay has an active role on B & B unless they are bringing her back there where she is not used as she should be. Back to soap life...I'm bummed about Holden/ Molly. I liked them together. Lilly deserves nothing more than Craig and I wish Lucinda would suffer a stroke leaving her unable to speak. Holden & Molly will find there way back to each other.

    Molly was a lot more gracious than I would have been, that's for sure! So, they brought Abigail back so that she can take Molly back with her to California.

    And why did Holden go to Lily's? I don't see the purpose of that visit, unless it was to send a sublimimal message to Lily that's he's available again?!?

    Won't even comment on Lucinda...

    Loved Luke and Reid scenes, as always! For those of you who are LuRe fans, there is a website just about them. The address is at the top of the ATWT's home page. You can see them anytime you want and blog also.

    I'm going to Canandaigua, NY to see my daughter and son-in-law, so you get a "break" from me till next Tuesday.

    Enjoy ATWT's the rest of the week and have a great weekend!

    I really like Holden and Molly together. Sorry Lucinda was able to split them up. Just hope that Holden and Lily don't reunite before the end of the show. Lucinda will sure gloat. Can't stand that woman.

    I was hoping Lily would NOT end up with Holden... There is something about her role since the new actress took over, makes it hard to like her. The old Lily was PERFECT!

    I am happy about Reid and Luke... it's good for both of them!

    They need to wrap up this Barbara thing already... going on for too long now!

    Jack and Carly??... don't think that shocks anyone! lol...

    Gotta love everything about this show!

    Oh and... Lucinda is really bugging me with her demanding ways!!! I used to love her, but all she does is force things and set people up -- I am not liking it anymore... I really think Craig should be left alone - just for a little anyways... I was curious to see what would happen with him and Lily!!! lol..

    fullz: ITA with your comment. I had high hopes for Molly and Holden. Of course, Lucinda always plays dirty and achieves what SHE wants.

    If they were going to destroy Molly in this way, why did they bother wasting air time with her great love for Holden?

    What Lucinda wants, Lucinda gets.

    Now, I want to know what she is going to do about Craig.

    Lily is so FAKE. I cannot stand her character. Holden should never have left town to see if Lily was all right. AGAIN...Lucinda.

    I am looking forward to seeing more of Henry and Barbara.

    Most of all, I want Iris to get hers.

    I forgot to mention that it is so wrong what Lucinda did to Lily regarding the perfume factory. If it where me I am not sure I would ever forgive her. I might even leave town with Sierra and Lucy taking the kids with me.

    Why Holden Why? Why would you be stupid enough to go chasing after Lilly on your wedding day? Oh I know why because you are a jerk and dont know what you want. You love Lilly than Molly, but look who got hurt the most, and you didnt even care about how your kids felt. It was sad how Molly was done, Your a jerk. Glad Molly called off the wedding she knew the truth, and that she didnt have all of Holdens heart and if she would of married him she would always be wondering where he is at or what he is thinking life is to short for that. I know she called the wedding off better than I would of.
    I wished ATWT wasnt going off the air, or another channel would take over. I am going to miss ATWT, just like I miss GL. Wont know what to do. Is Y&R,& B&B next? What is going on with these Soaps? I have watched these over 30 years, and it is a very disappointing what they are replacing these with. Please Please someone take over ATWT.

    I am so disappointed with the way things end between Holden and Molly. I know TPTB are going to put Lily and Holden back together, but oh how I wish they didn't. Molly deserved to be happy and she was very gracious today. Great job Leslie Kay.

    Posted by sweetcaoline at Tuesday, August 03 2010 02:14 PM

    Don't know who styled Molly's hair but the first thing I thought of when I saw it was----ROOSTERS TAIL---LOL.
    On the whole I thought that todays episode was pretty good with one exception--L/R YUCK,YUCK,YUCK.
    Was disappointed in the s/l for Holden & Molly as I think that they belong together. Leslie Kay is a great actress but I think they have done her wrong with this s/l. OMO
