All My Children Recaps
AMC Week of July 12, 2010
Jack told Erica that he deserved to know the truth about what was happening between her and Caleb. She answered honestly that she didn't know. She told him about her experience on the mountain. Jack suggested that they get married on the yacht, but she didn't think that running away was the answer. She told Jack that she was going to sever all of her ties to Caleb.
Krystal gave Caleb the skinny on the Chandler family. Caleb was evasive when Krystal asked if he knew Adam. Krystal told Caleb that she had seen the spark between him and Erica.
Scott broke the news to Marissa that Annie was the new head of PR for Chandler. JR thought that he and Annie had made a mistake by thinking that they could work together. They went back to the mansion, and while JR went to check out AJ's new fort, Marissa and Annie had words over Annie's new job. "Don't set up any private meetings with my husband," warned Marissa. Caleb went to the Chandler mansion and had odd flashbacks about dousing a door with lighter fluid. Annie and JR met with Caleb over the terms of the Cortlandt sale. Caleb picked up a framed photo of Adam and JR grabbed it away from him, but broke it and cut his hand. While Annie tended to him, Erica entered and demanded to know what was going on. Caleb told JR that all the Chandlers could go straight to hell and stormed off, but Erica intercepted him and asked him what had upset him so much. "Talk to me," she begged, stroking his face. He walked away. Marissa went to Krystal's to prep for the bar exam. Krystal told Marissa about seeing JR and Annie at the house in a warm moment. Marissa told Krystal about Annie's new PR gig. Annie tended to JR's hand and he admitted that being close to her without being able to touch her was a challenge. Meanwhile, Erica pursued Caleb in the park, pressing him to come clean with her.... JR and Annie's close moment was interrupted when Marissa returned home. Annie helped JR out by pretending that they were fighting, not bonding. Marissa purred to JR that they should go upstairs so that she could take care of her husband. JR and Annie separately tried to shake their thoughts of each other.
Tad and Liza had another round of bickering over Damon. Liza got a call telling her that Colby had turned down her internship. Back at the Chandlers', Damon and Colby talked about her staying in town for the summer. She then sneaked over to the Martin house in the hopes of finding out if Damon was cheating on her. Liza caught her and they got into an argument over Colby's decision to turn down the internship. Liza also called Colby out for her snooping, decrying the kind of person her daughter was becoming.
Tad and Damon went to lunch at the yacht club. Tad opened up about what his early life with the Martins had been like. Tad and Damon came home with flowers for Colby. He apologized to her for their earlier argument and Liza fumed in the background. Colby and Damon went to the park to enjoy each other's company. Back at the Martin house, Liza got a gleam in her eyes when she spied Damon's medication...
Jack went to Krystal's and he admitted that Erica had been scattered in the wake of her return from the plane crash. Krystal assured Jack of Erica's love for him.
Caleb kicked down a door at the yacht club and went inside with Erica, who said that she should leave. And yet, she didn't leave as he stared at her intently....
At the yacht club, David asked a distracted Greenlee if she was still upset with him. "I said I forgave you," she snapped. Greenlee excused herself to go to Fusion. Frankie entered and confronted David, having just found out that he (Frankie) was on the short-list to be axed in the next round of hospital lay-offs. Frankie went home, where Randi was packing for her trip to Italy, and vented to her about David. Frankie assured Randi that she should still go to Italy as planned.
Ryan broke the news to Madison that to appease an upset Emma, he might have to cancel their trip to New York. Madison thought that she could take care of it. Emma joined them at Krystal's and they talked about the trip, convincing the little girl to give them the go-ahead. Ryan was impressed with Madison's easy way with his daughter. Ryan then ran into David in the park and they got into it over Greenlee.
At Fusion, Jack assured Bianca that he would help figure out why she had ended up on a no-fly list. She fretted that she would be unable to get back to Paris right away to see the girls. Greenlee entered and saw the guest list for Jack and Erica's wedding. She was hurt when her name wasn't on it. Greens went to Krystal's and, noticing that she had missed a call from David, turned her phone to vibrate and ordered a double scotch. David went to Fusion and after goading Bianca about her marriage, Binks ordered him to leave. Ryan arrived at Krystal's and joined an inebriated Greenlee at the bar. Ryan suggested that she should be at home in bed. She tried to stand up and fell into Ryan's arms.
In the room at the yacht club, Caleb told Erica that he had taken her there to "end things." She said that she wanted to stop caring about him. They bickered and Jack walked in on them. He was angry but let Caleb leave. Erica tried to cover what Jack had walked in on by telling him about the fight Caleb had had with the Chandlers. Jack said that he was more interested in what Erica wasn't telling him, but when he got a phone call, he told her that she had a temporary reprieve. Erica went to Fusion and comforted Bianca, who had just gotten the news that no progress had been made on the no-fly list front. Jack sauntered in and surprised Bianca and Erica with Miranda and Gabrielle. As the Kanes celebrated their reunion, Jack slipped away unseen. Bianca probed Erica about Caleb. Erica admitted to Bianca that Caleb “may” do more than fluster her. Erica assured Bianca that she believes that Jack is her destiny. Erica sent Binks and the girls back to her place and began to conduct an Internet search on Caleb.
Jack went to see Caleb (who got word that his missing dog was safe) and interrogated Caleb, who sniffed to Jack that he should keep Erica away from him. Madison went home and supported Frankie when she heard about the potential lay-off.
Angie confronted David about why Frankie was on the short list to be laid off during the next round of budget cuts. David challenged Angie to figure out another way to close the budget deficit, but she had trouble seeing the papers when David handed them to her. Jesse asked Jake to keep an eye on Angie, about whom he was worried. Jake said that he'd gladly do it. Jake saw Angie and David together and intervened, helping Angie cover. David encountered Jesse and again maintained his innocence in the plane crash debacle.
Ryan helped a soused Greenlee back to her room at the yacht club. Madison called and heard Greenlee commenting that Ryan's hands were all over her. Greenlee let it slip to Ryan that sometimes when she wakes up in the morning, she expects to wake up with him beside her. "Just sleep it off," he said quietly as he exited. David returned and demanded to know what Ryan had been doing in his room. After their brief face-off, David went into the room and asked Greenlee what was going on. She copped to having had two drinks and falling off her stool into Ryan's arms. She made a pointed comment about how depressing it is when trust goes out of a relationship; he insisted that he trusted her completely.
After conducting research on Caleb on the Internet, Erica went to Wildwind to confront him. She called him a fraud, revealing that she knows that he graduated magna cum laude from Stanford law. Caleb scoffed at Erica and told her that Jack had just been there to order Caleb to stay away from Erica. Erica probed Caleb about what had made him flee society, postulating that it was the owner of the locket Erica had found in Caleb's pocket. Pushed to his breaking point, Caleb revealed, "She was my wife! And Adam Chandler stole her away from me!" Caleb clarified that the woman was actually his fiancee, Sonia, and that Adam had seduced her while he had been working as Adam's attorney. Caleb copped to having tried to burn down Adam's house. Caleb wept as he explained how he had ended up alone on the mountain in the wake of his loss. Jack called and Erica admitted that she was with Caleb. Caleb grabbed the phone and told Jack that Cortlandt Electronics was officially for sale, on the condition that Chandlers be blocked from ownership and that the sale be a quick one. Caleb told Jack that he was leaving town that night and hung up. Jack placed a call regarding the sale of Cortlandt and became upset when he found Caleb's bio up on Erica's computer screen. Back at Wildwind, Caleb accused Erica of not wanting him to leave.
Madison sought counsel from Frank about whether she should be worried about Ryan and Greenlee's relationship. He advised her to proceed with caution. Ryan showed up and apologized to Madison for being late. She went to grab her bags. Frankie gave Ryan the cold shoulder and told him not to hurt Madison. Madison and Ryan headed out. They grabbed dinner at the yacht club and Ryan told Madison about what had happened with Greenlee.
Jesse and Angie went over to see Frankie and ended up knocking their dinner to the ground due to another bout of visual impairment.
Greenlee dreamed about Ryan. She woke up when Bianca knocked on her door. Bianca bashed Greens for missing an important business meeting. Binks let it slip that Ryan had gone to New York with Madison. Greens lay in bed and thought about Ryan.
At Krystal's, Jack informed Krystal that he was selling Cortlandt for Caleb. He let Krystal know about Caleb's Stanford roots and Krystal once again assured Jack of Erica's love for him.
Madison and Ryan arrived at the hotel in New York. Due to a logistical problem with the hotel, they had to share a room. Madison and Ryan got dressed up and complimented one another on their appearance.
Caleb and Erica bickered as they tried to figure out why the universe kept bringing them back together. Caleb swept Erica into a huge kiss. “I love Jack,” she huffed. They bickered some more and she left. Erica went to Krystal's but when she saw Jack, she didn't enter and instead phoned Bianca. Bianca went to Wildwind with a letter of resignation from Erica. Krystal showed up with some take-out from the restaurant and Bianca excused herself. Caleb admitted that Krystal might be an exception to the Pine Valley rule of everyone having a hidden agenda. Krystal told Caleb that she had picked up on the spark between him and Erica.
Erica entered Krystal's and told Jack that she wanted them to be sure that when they wed, it was their last walk down the aisle. She suggested that they propose the wedding and take their honeymoon first. Jack beamed that he couldn't wait to have Erica all to himself and they agreed to leave that very night. Jack went to see Greenlee. He gave her hangover-avoiding advice and let her know that he and Erica were leaving for an extended period of time. Jack told Greenlee that he loves her and wants them to make things better. He gave his daughter a picture of her from her happier days and told her to keep it as a reminder. They exchanged “I love you's” and after Jack left, Greenlee spontaneously booked a flight to New York.
Erica went to Fusion to say good-bye to Bianca. She assured Bianca that everything was fine. After Binks left, she was surprised by a visit from Caleb. “Who's running now?” he asked her. He asked if she was leaving because she didn't trust herself around him. Jack's arrival interrupted the moment, but on her way out with Jack, she told Caleb that the answer to his question was no.
Greenlee arrived at Ryan's hotel room and sweet-talked a bell hop into letting her in. Once there, she felt ridiculous and turned to leave, but when she heard Ryan and Madison in the hallway, returning to the room, from a conference meeting, she froze.
Angie dictated an update on her condition into her voice recorder. When Jesse entered, she covered. He told her that he was anxious to get back to work and was going to meet with the mayor. Jesse handed Angie the family bible, which he found in their closet. Angie had another episode with her vision and was panicked when Jesse asked her to drive him to his meeting. Angie thought fast and reminded Jesse that she's directionally challenged, so he drove them.
Scott sauntered into the living room, interrupting yet another sexually tense moment between JR and Annie. Scott told JR about the new assignment he'd given to Annie and JR didn't think it was a good idea, but Annie was confident that she could handle the client, Tucker.
David encountered Marissa at Krystal's. She was studying for the bar and also upset about JR and Annie working together. David made an unsuccessful effort to track down Greenlee. David urged Marissa to keep fighting for his marriage. Marissa came home and was annoyed to find Annie and JR bickering over the Tucker situation. Scott gave Annie a pep talk and she left for her meeting. JR dissed Marissa by not helping her study for the bar, instead running off after Annie (though he lied to Marissa about his destination). Scott tried to help Marissa remain calm as the demands of raising AJ and studying for the bar began to get to her and she threw a tantrum in the living room. Scott warned Marissa against taking David's marital advice. Marissa made it clear that she planned to play to win where JR was concerned and told Scott that he was welcome to warn Annie.
Annie met with Tucker at the yacht club. She noticed JR staring intently at them nearby and excused herself to ask him why he was there. He told her that he was just trying to protect her. Tucker lured Annie back to his room and made a move on her. He refused to take her no for an answer and she screamed for him to unhand her as JR approached the door.
Greenlee scrambled to hide when she heard Madison and Ryan returning to his hotel room. From the bathroom, she listened with difficulty to Ryan and Madison's in-room flirting and kissing session. Their steamy make-out was interrupted by a call from the front desk announcing that their other room was ready. When Madison went downstairs to grab the key, Ryan said, "Come out, Greenlee." She reluctantly faced him. He told her that he had smelled her perfume. She pretended to be there to make sure he wasn't going to go to the cops about David, but he knew better and called her out. She told Ryan that she had just wanted to thank him in person for escorting her home from Krystal's. Greenlee pretended not to remember letting it slip that she wakes up thinking about him. He said that she hadn't been truthful with him since showing up in his room. Just then, Madison entered. Greens beat a hasty retreat and Ryan and Madison agreed that it had been awkward. He then swept Madison into a passionate kiss while Greens felt bad for herself in the hall.
David surprised Jesse and Angie at the police station and they got into it before Jesse urged Angie to let cooler heads prevail. Angie left and David told Jesse that Iris had cancelled the meeting. The men exchanged barbs. Angie went to Krystal's and spoke aloud to God about why he would take her vision. David approached Angie and she told him that he had made her question her faith. Later, Angie was in danger when, barely able to see, she went into a dark alleyway.
