AMC Week of July 5, 2010
Today was a rebroadcast of the April 14 episode — Kendall tells Ryan not to give up on Greenlee
Liza looked at the incriminating pics of herself on Damon's phone. Opal came by and advised Liza not to get in between father and son.
At the police station, Tad was forced to stay overnight after slugging Paul. Damon showed up and was moved to hear that Tad had decked Paul for speaking ill of his son.
JR told Annie that he was going to the cottage. She smiled that he was leaving to get her out of his head. JR bolted when Scott came downstairs and smooched Annie. Upstairs, he told Marissa that he was going to focus his thoughts on their family while he was away and assured her that he wants her and their family. JR got word of Tad's arrest and phoned Liza. JR and Liza showed up at the police station and Liza angrily showed him the phone, calling him out on not having deleted the pictures. JR posted Tad's bail and Tad, Liza and Damon returned home, where Damon and Tad signed the adoption papers. Once alone with Liza, Damon told her that she hadn't congratulated him yet and hugged her, then spontaneously kissed her. They pulled apart before Tad reentered. Damon looked stunned.
Caleb ignored Erica's messages then grumpily received a visit from Scott and Annie. Caleb was surprised to hear that Adam had left Pine Valley. Scott asked Caleb if he knew Adam. Caleb was evasive. Scott offered to buy Cortlandt from Caleb. Caleb told them to leave. Once alone, he remarked to Palmer's portrait that he had long wondered what he would say to Adam “after what he did.” Caleb went to Krystal's and encountered Opal, who urged him to respect Palmer's last wishes by staying in town. After their chat, Caleb left a message for Scott, saying he was ready to discuss his offer. Scott and Annie were thrilled but he cautioned that he needed JR's approval to make the deal. When Scott went to make a call, Annie snatched the Cortlandt prospectus and ran out of the house. Scott and Marissa discussed their relationships with their respective, “difficult” partners.
A frustrated Erica told Jack that she kept reliving her plane crash. Bianca entered and she and her mom discussed Erica's interest in stepping back from Fusion. Bianca said that she would take over. Erica accepted the offer. Jack was delighted.
Caleb went to the park and ran into Erica. He accused her of following him, a charge that she denied. Caleb scoffed when Erica suggested that she could help him learn to run the business. Jack approached and Caleb stomped off. Erica went to Wildwind.
JR arrived at the beach cottage. He shut his eyes and imagined that Marissa and Annie were vying for his affections. He was rattled by the vision. When Annie actually showed up, JR was floored.
Erica went to Wildwind to see Caleb. She killed him with kindness as she poured him the whiskey she had brought for him. Erica presented Caleb with documents and he called her out on trying to trick him into relinquishing Cortlandt.
David and Greenlee discussed kicking Caleb out of Wildwind.
In the park, Madison and Ryan talked about their upcoming trip to New York and flirted. Ryan overheard David on the phone with his contact, copping to only having turned himself in because he knew that he wouldn't go to jail. Ryan revealed his presence but didn't let David know what he had heard. David left; he and Greens went to Wildwind. Caleb asked David to tell him everything he knows about the Chandlers. He also asked David if he could be trusted. David claimed that he could be and gave Caleb his negative take on all the Chandlers (save for Marissa). Meanwhile, Erica informed Greens that she was leaving Fusion. Erica told Caleb that David and Greenlee were the ones responsible for sabotaging her plane. Caleb fumed that because David ruined his home, he was going to take his (Wildwind). The Haywards left and Erica assured Caleb that she would never try to dupe him.
JR was upset when Annie showed up at the cabin. She explained that she was there on business. She made the case for him to sign off on the deal to buy Cortlandt. While he reviewed the papers, she started reminiscing about her time on the run with Emma. They ended up sharing a close moment that freaked them both out. They agreed that this could never happen again. Annie returned home from the cottage. JR arrived moments later and she and JR gazed longingly at each other across the room.
At the Chandler manse, AJ told Marissa that he wanted to go surprise JR at the cottage. Marissa tried to explain why that wasn't a possibility.
Bianca vented to Frankie and Randi about the bad rep the Miranda center had gotten in the wake of the David-created scandal. Bianca asked Madison to come back to work at Fusion. She shared her good news with Frankie. When there was a delay with Madison's new apartment getting ready, Frankie invited her to stay with him and Randi. Ryan showed up at Krystal's and told Madison about what he'd overheard David saying. She informed him of the crisis with the Miranda Center's funding and noted that the place had saved her life. Madison arrived at the Hubbards' apartment.
Ryan went to the yacht club and told Greenlee that David had paid off the SCC to avoid a jail term.
David tattled about Jesse's investigation into the plane crash to the mayor. At home, Angie struggled with her vision and missed a call from Jesse because she couldn't get to the phone. David and Iris confronted Jesse. The mayor suspended Jesse indefinitely without pay.
Amanda practiced her Italian. Jake entered and they talked about the trip. Angie's vision returned and she called Jake to tell him about her bout of visual impairment and to ask her to come help her move some furniture around. Jake again urged her to come clean with Jesse and she refused. With Angie on his mind, Jake broke the news to Amanda that he couldn't join her in Italy. She decided to stay behind as well. Jake went to help Angie move the furniture. Jesse returned home and they had to cover what was going on. Jake bolted and Jesse informed Angie of his suspension. He proposed that they take the time to work on having another baby. Angie was hesitant but appreciative of her husband...then rattled when Jesse copped to sometimes wanting to kill David. Jesse took a nap with his head on Angie's lap. She touched the contours of his face and began to weep.
Amanda went to Fusion to break the news to Bianca and Randi that she isn't going to Italy. The women decided that Randi should replace Amanda at the shoot.
Ryan told Greenlee everything about what he'd heard David saying to the SCC. "It can't be true," said Greenlee. "He's playing you," warned Ryan. Greenlee was left shaken by their encounter and, once alone, rooted around in David's stuff looking for evidence. David returned home and she asked him to tell her the truth about the SCC agent. She quickly realized that he had indeed lied to her. Livid, she told him off. When she indicated that she had slept with him out of gratitude, he was stung. They argued but Greens didn't leave. Instead, they looked at plans for their new house, though she remained suspicious.
Madison got settled at Frankie and Randi's place. Unaware that Ryan was with Greenlee, Madison beamed that he thinks Ryan is truly over Greenlee. Later, Frankie returned and caught Madison in a towel. She got all dolled up for her date and looked away from Frankie's muscles when she walked in on him working out. Madison was disappointed when Ryan called to postpone their date because he was investigating David's SCC connection. Frankie cheered her up by ordering pizza. Ryan then dropped by to apologize for having cancelled on her and asked her out again. Randi returned home as Madison and Ryan were on their way out and Madison thanked her for letting her stay there (which was news to Randi). Randi wasn't thrilled about the Madison situation but she and Frankie celebrated the good news about her Italy trip. Madison and Ryan went to the park and he explained why he had decided against working to expose David (because she was more of a priority to him than David).
Damon came to see Colby, who tried to coax him into coming to New York with her. He was adamant that he couldn’t leave but also insisted that there was no other girl in the picture. They had a fight and he stormed off.
JR and Scott prepped for their meeting with Caleb. Annie broke the news to JR that she is the new head of the Chandler PR department. They had a nice conversation about Annie feeling like a real member of the team. Krystal walked in and was suspicious. She told Annie to leave and warned JR against hurting Marissa again. Marissa entered and told JR that she had moved back into their room. She and Krystal went to Krystal’s for some quality mother/daughter time and Marissa defended her decision to move back into JR’s bedroom.
Annie found Colby in the wake of her fight with Damon. She got a call regarding her internship and told the person that she couldn’t accept it. Annie advised Colby not to throw the opportunity away over a boy.
Tad and Liza went to see Caleb, introducing himself as Dixie’s husband. Caleb, as usual, was gruff. Caleb all but ordered them to leave, then took his locket and left for his meeting.
Jack and Erica strolled in the park and she vented about Caleb. He thought she needed to focus on something else for a while and took her to the yacht club. There, Caleb commenced his meeting with JR and Scott and Erica couldn’t resist striding over to urge him not to sell the business. Caleb grumbled to the Chandlers to draw him up an offer and stormed out. Annie gave JR a congratulatory hug. Jack, who had heard a comment Caleb made to Erica, demanded answers as to what had happened between Caleb and La Kane the previous night. She explained that she had tried to get him drunk so that he would sell Cortlandt to her but Jack didn’t feel reassured. He asked if something had happened between them while in the mountains.
Tad and Liza went back to his place and played a fixed (by Tad) game of strip poker. They started making out, which ground to a halt when Damon entered. Tad took a call; Damon told Liza that he had kissed her because he had gone off his meds for a few days. He asked her not to tell Tad, who reentered the room. Damon went back to the Chandler house and Colby apologized for having lost her cool with him. Colby fibbed that she had lost her internship slot.
Caleb went to Krystal’s and kicked out all of her customers in order to grill her (“renting the place,” he called it) about the Chandlers.
