    Let's Do This.

    Thursday, August 05 2010
    Katie makes a bold step with Chris, Henry finds a major clue that leads him to Barbara, and Iris continues to wreak havoc on Oakdale.

    Casey finds Alison in the staff lounge and asks her out on a date for deep dish pizza. She happily accepts and agrees to meet him later. Chris enters the lounge and informs Casey that Tom and Margo invited him and Katie on a weekend getaway to the family cabin, but Katie declined. Casey wonders if Chris is giving up.

    Katie plays with Jacob at home and asks him why she is being such a chicken about going away. She tries to talk herself into going. Katie wishes she had someone to talk to. Chris arrives and pulls her into a kiss. He then leaves to get food and hopes she'll join him to go to the cabin. Margo calls Katie and informs her she and Tom can't make the trip to the cabin because of work. Katie sits alone with Jacob and contemplates her next move.

    Iris goes to see Barbara where she is keeping her captive and informs her she is living with the entire family at Fairwinds! Barbara thinks it is impossible. Iris orders her to pay her what she demands so she can leave for Tahiti or she'll be locked up forever! Barbara refuses to give her what she wants but offers to write her a big fat check if Iris fetches her checkbook for her. As Barbara tells her the location, she drops a pen in Iris's purse. Barbara begins to talk to the clown again and wonders if everyone really forgot her.

    Henry dresses in drag for a stakeout at the Lakeview. He takes a call from Katie and tells her that he is positive he heard Barbara talking through Jacob's baby monitor. He asserts he will not rest until he finds Barbara! As he leaves to adjust his bra, Iris enters Barbara's suite! She finds a safe and pries it open with the pen that Barbara dropped in her purse. She takes the checkbook, sprays herself with Barbara's perfume and leaves. Henry walks around the corner and smells Barbara's perfume! He decides to go into Barbara's room and investigate. He discovers the open safe on the desk!

    Chris waits at Al's for Katie and is disappointed when she doesn't show. As he leaves with a pile of food, he is surprised and happy to see Katie walk around the corner. She informs him Alison is keeping Jacob and says, "Let's do this."

    Alison arrives at the Hughes home and tells Casey she is keeping Jacob for the weekend. Casey offers to help take care of him and thinks it will be a blast! They work together to calm a fussy Jacob. Alison decides to call Gwen and Will for reinforcements.

    Emily and Paul cuddle in the living room at Fairwinds. Gwen and Will enter the room and ask Emily how she is taking the news about Iris movin in. Emily can't believe Iris is living at Fairwinds! She retorts she'd rather have the bride of Frankenstein living there! Will thinks if Gwen can put up with Barbara, they can put up with Iris. Emily thinks they shouldn't have to deal with either one of them. Gwen answers a call from Alison who invites her and Will over. She happily agrees so they can escape the tension. Paul tries to calm Emily down with a kiss. As they kiss, Iris arrives and says, "Emmy! You're home!" Paul orders Emily to play nice and leaves her alone with Iris. Emily wants to set some ground rules, but Iris gives her a list of things she needs to make her stay more comfortable. Emily comments that she needs a drink.

    Chris and Katie arrive at the cabin. Chris is surprised that Tom and Margo are not there. Katie informs him they aren't coming. Chris realizes that Katie came up to be alone with him. He then notices she isn't wearing her wedding ring. Chris lights candles and Katie returns without her shirt on! Chris tells her she is beautiful. A nervous Katie comments that her goose bumps have goose bumps, but everything feels very right. Chris pulls Katie in for a sweet and tender kiss. They fall onto the floor and begin to make out, but Chris pulls back with chest pains. He tells her he wants to be with her more than anything but can't breathe!

    Gwen and Will go to the Hughes home for a cookout with Casey and Alison. As the men tend to the grill, Alison thanks Gwen for helping calm Jacob down. Gwen notes that practice makes perfect, as well as a good partner. Alison wonders how you know who the right person is. Gwen asks about Mick. Alison says things got so out of control but believes she really is ready for marriage now. Gwen believes that she should go for it and never look back. The ladies join the men by the grill. Casey can't believe how grown up they all are becoming! Will gets a call from Henry and leaves to check it out. Casey wonders if he and Alison could be like Will and Gwen. Alison thinks it's possible.

    Will heads to the Lakeview and laughs to discover Henry in drag. Will wonders why he didn't just dress as a construction worker. Henry wishes he thought of that. Henry explains how he smelled Barbara's perfume. Henry then finds a pen on the floor that says "The Party Warehouse." Will notes that the pen wasn't there before!

    Will and Henry go to the party warehouse but Barbara is nowhere to be found!

    Iris goes to the wine cellar to nab a bottle of wine. Iris hears someone coming and hides. Emily enters as Iris looks on. After Emily leaves, Iris sighes in relief. She drinks the wine straight from the bottle and tells a hidden and gagged Barbara she's drinking to her!

    Next on As The World Turns:

    Katie cries for Chris to come to when he passes out on the floor!

    Reid discovers Chris is self-medicating and asks him what he is doing.

    Henry finds Chuckles the clown and sees that it has Barbara's lipstick on it.

    Gwen insists to Emily that Iris is not drinking again.

    Iris tells Barbara not to move or she'll shoot her! Barbara points out it is a toy gun, but Iris fires off a shot!

    Unreal. This Iris/Barbara thing is insane.....

    WHY HAVE SOMETHING WRONG WITH CHRIS!?!?!!? I am so happy him and Katie are FINALLY working!!!

    Casey and Allison are sooo cute together. I hope it works out for them this time.

    I loved Gwen's hair today. Having a ponytail gives her more of a short haired look and it's very flattering.

    Iris makes my skin crawl...ewwwww...I want to shower after she's been on.

    Henry, you are as gorgeous as ever in drag! LOL!!Love it! Please hurry and find your Barbara...she needs you!

    1Smitty....the last shows have already been taped so there's no going back now.

    Chris is self-medicating--that is illegal. And he wants to be chief. And he wants Katie to fall in love with him so he can die on her--That is so rich.

    Yea, this show is writing itself out really crazy.

    Casey and Allison - YAY!
    Katie and Chris - meh.
    Tom and Margo - MORE!
    Paul and Emily - double meh.
    Gwen and Will - MORE!
    Henry - why can't you be just a little bit smarter?
    Iris - Boo! Boo! Boo! Boo! Why are they dragging this out and wasting so much time when there is so little left? FREE BARBARA RYAN!!

    Why does Henry like to dress like a woman? ATWT is always doing this to him, or maybe he likes to be one. He is very funny. I know all the shows are already taped, but why let the kidnapping of Barbara take up all the time now? I love Chris and Katie together. I can't see Paul character being so placid and boring. Emily talks smut about his mother and he just looks at her. Emily has a lot of room to talk!!! She has been the most evil, sick-minded woman on the show at times. I love Will and Gwen. I hope Barb is found soon, as I am sick of looking at IRIS!!!!!

    Let's face it guys we have no choice but to endure the never ending saga of the kidnapping of Barbara by Iris. The writers are done, the taping is complete and we just have to sit back and enjoy-or not-the remaining scenes.

    I too am getting tired of the Barbara kidnapping story line but I think it will wrap up within the week. I am enjoying Henry's frantic search and drag stake-out scenes and that and Will's stress over the fact his mother is missing and Paul is not as worried as he is and now his mother-in-law's return are making this story for me. The Emily saga of I hate Barabara is old to me as well as I just cringe whenever Iris is on the screen. The actress is great - the character not so much. But PLEASE FIND Barbara already. And how did she get moved from the warehouse to Fairwinds winecellar anyway - did I miss something in the transfer?

    Allison and Casey are cute together. I think the whole Vienna may be carrying my baby got to Casey and he's really thinking about a family of his own. That would be nice and if he and Ally can make it work finally that would be wonderful too. Jacob is adorable.

    Still don't think Katie is really ready for a serious relationship with Chris or anyone but if she thinks she is go for it Katie- Brad would want you to be happy. And if we're going to do a Chris is ill story line please have more interaction between Chris and Reid. I still say they are and could have been the recreation of the old fued between Bob Hughes and John Dixon.

    Am loving all the Will, Gwen and Hallie scenes and though I know they are just mingling around town here and there and worried over Barbara the fact that they will be going back to Carbondale before the end of the show has me loving every second that they are on; slow story line and all. I take what I can get and a slow story line of Will and Gwen is better than no Will and Gwen at all.

    Sure wish Gwen would take the blinders off where Iris is concerned. How many times does Gwen have to be hurt by her mother to realize that she is no good and up to no good? Poor Gwen when she does realize that it's Iris who has Barbara is gonna feel horrible that she didn't see this coming not to mention the coincidences in timing of Barbara's disappearance and Iris' arrival as well as Iris's behavior.

    why does'nt Barb make a sound? Even if you're gagged you still have your voice box to moan or something. This is so ridiculous, how does one woman without a weapon keep overpowering another. Iris turns her back and just strolls out the door and Barbara just stands there. Why did'nt she take off and knock Iris to the floor? I just can't take this stupidity any more. If this is a sample of what the writers have to offer, I am happy that they're going off the air.

    How in the world did Iris get Barbara from point A (Party Warehouse) to point B (Wine Cellar at Fairwinds)...GIVE ME A BREAK. This is one of the most ridiculous storylines.
