    The Surgeon Dressed Like Fred Rogers.

    Monday, August 09 2010
    Chris gets bad news, Henry finds a clue and Iris gets called out.

    In an exam room at Memorial, Reid interrogates Chris about having himself tested for a tropical virus. He urges him to have a chest x-ray but Chris barks at him to back off. Katie walks in and asks what's going on. Reid covers for Chris but tells him he knows where to find him if he needs him. After he leaves, Chris hugs Katie. She wants to drive him home so they can play doctor. He'd love to but he has to take a rain check.

    In the hall, Luke and Bob talk about the union meeting happening that afternoon and Bob invites him along to 'babysit' Reid. Luke walks down the hall and runs into Reid, who is distracted. Chris walks down the hall and Bob asks him to the meeting too. Chris agrees and loudly makes a jab at Dr. Oliver. After Bob walks off, Luke wonders why Reid is being so calm and professional around Chris.

    In the warehouse, Henry and Paul bicker as the psychic checks out the clown's vibrations. She says the answers they are searching for are in the clown. Paul asks the psychic if she will talk to the police for them. She's reluctant but Henry is still trying to be optimistic. Will questions the psychic, who explains that Chuckles absorbed all of the negative energy in the room. Paul needs something more concrete but she has nothing. After she leaves, Henry starts shaking Chuckles. Will decides to leave and Paul suggests they get a drink. Henry takes the clown with them.

    Emily finds Iris in the wine cellar at Fairwinds. She tells her she's gone too far so Iris chases her up the stairs. Gwen arrives as the two women bicker. Emily tells her that she found Iris drinking in the cellar. Iris admits to it and begs for her daughter's forgiveness. Emily storms off and Gwen lectures her mother. Iris whines and apologizes. Emily comes back and says Iris can go to a halfway house. Gwen starts making excuses for her mom and blames Emily for her relapse. Em starts to blow up and Iris smiles to herself. As they argue, Will arrives and discovers Iris fell off the wagon. Iris says she has to go to an AA meeting and borrows some cash for a cab.

    Chris and Katie sit in an office going over the union issues. They take a break to talk about how much fun they can have some day. She says he's made her happy and hopeful again. They kiss and then get back to studying. He gets a call with the results from his test. He looks worried. She starts to ramble about her kid and other stuff until he tells her she should go. Once she leaves, he passes out.

    Luke and Reid are at his place studying for the meeting. Luke gives him fashion advice and Reid doesn't particularly appreciate it. He's worried about something else and leaves, promising to show up as 'the surgeon dressed like Fred Rogers'.

    Reid strolls into the labor meeting at Al's wearing his lab coat. He introduces himself to the union reps and tells them all about himself and how much he cares about his patients. He knows they work hard and he needs them but the economy sucks so there's only so much he can do. They shake his hand. Luke and Bob watch admiringly. Katie shows up and wonders where Chris is. Reid teases her about her boyfriend and she talks about how much she likes him before going off to make a call.

    Paul and Henry are at the Lakeview with Chuckles. Paul continues trying to calm his half brother and claims his mother is fine. Henry can't shake his gut feeling and is determined to follow it. Paul gets a text about work and then calls Emily, who launches into a rant about Iris. He informs her that he has to go to Chicago and sort something out. When he gets off the phone, Henry is questioning Chuckles. Paul starts to worry a little bit and then heads off. Henry puts his hand up the clown's sleeve and finds a note from Barbara saying she's in trouble.

    Bob finds his son sleeping in the office and tells him he missed the meeting. Chris claims he just dozed off but Bob accuses him of blowing it off and assures him he's not a shoe-in just because he's his son. Bob storms out and Reid trails in. Chris tells him to go away and his fellow doctor guesses what the results must have been. Chris explains that he was infected with the virus before. Reid thinks they should do an MRI but Chris insists on handling this alone and keeping it a secret. Katie interrupts and Reid walks off. Chris assures Katie that he still likes her and isn't blowing her off, but there's something he needs to take care of. He rushes down the hall, right past Reid and Luke. The doctor pulls Luke into a kiss and tells him that life is short.

    Gwen and Will are in Old Town discussing Iris.

    When Emily goes down to her wine cellar, she finds Barbara on the floor.

    Next on As The World Turns:

    Chris asks for Reid's help.

    Katie worries to Ali about Chris.

    Reid has trouble getting used to Luke's obsession with Noah.

    Iris knocks out Emily.

    I can't believe I'm saying this but for one time I agree with Emily. Dang Qwen open your eyes your mama is bad news! Should be good Emily/Barbara tied up together.

    This Barbara sl is not grabbing me, but it should be fun now Emily is going to join her. Reid is showing he has feelings afterall. Chris is acting like an @$$ and going for that position for all the wrong reasons.

    Luke and Reid were on today??? Damnit... they didn't say so in the spoilers... how am I supposed to know to watch, if they don't tell me?

    that being said, it should in fact be fun to see barbara and em tied up...

    Katie was about to sleep with Chris... they are officially LAPPING Reid and Luke in the relationship physical-ness...

    I believe we can see ATWT missed episodes on CBS.COM, right??
    Don't like the idea that Reid might be killed off. Really gets my goat.

    Poor Gwen. If only she would get her head out of the sand and listen to EVERYONE telling her the truth about mommy dearest.

    Luke and Reid look like brothers.

    I actually enjoyed today's episode. I kept wanting Henry to take the psychic seriously and look INSIDE the clown! I loved Barbara's time in the warehouse and the references to long gone story lines and characters. I'm anxiously awaiting Larry Bryggman's return as Dr. John Dixon! My speculation (possible spoiler alert...) is that Chris will consult with Dr. Dixon about his heart--Dr. Dixon was a cardiologist after all! We'll see if I'm right....

    Chris and Reid are the best looking guys on the show. I hope Noah and Luke don't get back together. I am sick of the Barbara thing. Gee, enough is enough...wasted time when the show is so near over. Why oh why is ATWT LEAVING US??? I grew up watching that show with my mom. My favorite soap of all time.
