All My Children Recaps
AMC Week of June 21, 2010
Angie tried to sidestep Jake's questions about her health but Jake demanded answers. Angie was saved by a page.
Annie told Scott that Erica had survived the plane crash. JR entered and Scott and Annie both looked panicked when JR reported that Erica had Palmer's new will. Scott took off to find out what was in the will. Annie joined him. Marissa pressed JR to take the day off but he said he couldn't.
At Fusion, David reassured Greenlee that no one would connect them to the crash. David suggested that they throw a launch party tonight so that Greenlee would win the competition. Randi was upset with Greenlee's plan but Greens threatened to fire her if she didn't start planning the bash.
Bianca and Erica had a warm reunion at the hospital. Jack took Binks aside and asked her not to bring up Greenlee. Jake and Angie examined Erica. Once Jack and Erica were alone again, he proposed. Jake's return put the matter on hold. Jack fielded the arrival of Opal and, later, Scott and Annie, who pumped him for info on Palmer's new will. Annie hissed to Scott that they had to find and destroy the will. Scott reluctantly agreed. When Greenlee showed up with flowers, Jack and Bianca pounced on her, demanding that she leave. Annie got in on the Greenlee-bashing.... Krystal and Opal pumped Erica for details about her mysterious rescuer.... JR caught Scott trying to swipe Jack's duffel bag, which contains Palmer's papers. Scott played it off, but lost his shot at the will. JR demanded to know what Scott and Annie were doing there but Angie showed up to whisk JR away... Erica caught a glimpse of Greenlee and had to be restrained from tearing after her.... Bianca stressed to Opal that she planned to make Greenlee pay.... Erica told Jack that she wanted to marry him. They shared the good news with Opal, Krystal, Jake and Angie.
In West Virginia, Caleb was besieged by memories of Erica. Caleb got the check from Jack reimbursing him for his house and tore it up.
David and Marissa met up in the park and he urged her to use AJ to keep JR's attention off of Annie. Marissa said "no way." At the yacht club, he and Greens went over party plans and she told him how poorly things had gone at the hospital.... Marissa went home and was upset to learn that JR hadn't gone in to work, after all. She called Scott and learned that Annie wasn't with him. When she got a call about AJ, she decided to use news of AJ's bee stint to her marital advantage.
Angie took JR to meet the widow of his late friend, who had just given birth. The conversation reminded JR how lucky he was to be alive. He went to the park to think and ran into Annie. He apologized to her for how he had been treating her and thanked her for giving him back his life (via the marrow). She was about to leave when he grabbed her and kissed her.
At Krystal's, Marissa claimed to her mom that AJ was stung by a bee so she pulled him out of swim camp. Krystal could tell that AJ was just fine so she asked Marissa if this is just a ruse to get JR's attention. Marissa admitted she was trying to give JR a reminder that his focus should be on her and AJ.
JR and Annie started mauling each other and he took her down on the lawn. Annie suddenly pulled away and said this was "a mistake." She insisted her future was with Scott and he seconded that he needed to be with his family. She wondered if they could ever be a couple. "You're a walking disaster," JR snarled and got a slap to the face. His cell phone rang; it was Marissa calling about AJ's bee sting. Before he took off, Annie assured that losing control with JR would never happen again. He went home and checked on AJ. Marissa suggested they save their marriage by sleeping in the same bed again. He agreed, then embraced his wife.
At the yacht club, Bianca overheard Greenlee and David talking about their launch party and blasted them. Greens defended that this is business and that Fusion will be her company, which means Erica is out. After Bianca stalked away, David urged his wife to be strong.
Jack, Ryan and Emma fussed over Erica at the hospital. Ryan asked if she has seen Greenlee yet but Erica said no. Jack took Ryan aside and pointed out that Erica knows nothing about Greenlee and David possibly being responsible for the plane crash.
Bianca tattled to Jack about Greenlee's victory party and wanted to warn her mom. Jack didn't want Erica to be bothered with the news so as not to hinder her recovery. Bianca went to Erica's bedside and the patient demanded to know what all the whispering was about. Bianca fibbed that she was being hounded by the press about Erica, who wasn't totally convinced
Jack urged Greenlee to do the right thing about Fusion but David advised her not to listen to her dad. Jack revealed that he and Erica are engaged. "I feel so sorry for you," Greenlee scoffed. "Erica only cares about Erica." Unable to get through to his daughter, Jack stormed out. Greenlee told David that she had a few things to wrap up at work and said she would meet him at the party.
Madison showed up at the hospital to visit Erica. There, she met Bianca, who asked Madison not to upset Erica about Greenlee. Erica saw the gals outside her room and called Madison's cell. Erica instructed Madison to pretend to leave in order to shake Bianca, then double back to her room. Once Madison did that, Erica wanted to know what was going on. Madison shared that she thinks Greenlee and David tried to kill Erica and that the Haywards were throwing a Fusion party. Madison then helped Erica get dressed to the nines and they snuck out of the hospital.
Ryan scolded Annie for being tardy again in picking up Emma. Scott rushed to Annie's side to defend her. Ryan was surprised to hear that Annie is still living at the Chandler manse. Later, Ryan was upset when Madison confessed that she updated Erica on Greenlee and David, then helped her escape from the hospital. Ryan said he needed to get to the party and ran out.
As the party began, Bianca warned David she was going to create a scene with the buyers so he drugged her drink. That made her woozy and David escorted her out.... At the hospital, Jack discovered that Erica was gone.... At the office, Greenlee prepared to leave for her party. She was stunned when the elevator doors opened and Erica popped out. "Hello, Greenlee," chirped La Kane. "Miss me?"
Frankie confirmed for Jack that Erica wasn't officially released. Meanwhile,
Erica yanked a surprised Greenlee onto the elevator and stopped the lift
from going anywhere. Erica recounted her terrifying experience of the plane crash, then accused Greens of sabotaging the flight. As Greenlee got nervous with claustrophobia, Erica threatened to expose all of Mrs. Hayward's misdeeds and send her to jail.
David rented a suite, then put an unconscious Bianca to bed. As he exited
the room, he ran right into Ryan. David was able to slip out without Ryan
seeing Bianca and Ryan blasted Hayward for freezing Erica out of Fusion.
David refused to make any apologies and stressed he is being a supportive husband to Greenlee, something Ryan obviously didn't know how to do.
Tad's plans to spend a quiet evening with Liza were thwarted when they
encountered Damon on the sofa. Liza wanted to call it a night but Tad asked her to stick around to make nice with his son. The trio hunkered down for movie watching, which Tad enjoyed; Liza not so much. Tad got a call and had to run out for a break in a case, leaving Liza and Damon alone. He took glee in her discomfort but mentioned that if he could start trusting her, he may start deleting certain pictures from his phone. Liza reluctantly sat back down in front of the boob tube but Damon riled her by asking about Tad sleeping with her mother. Damon claimed he wanted Liza to his friend. She said that can't happen till he erases those photos of her, but he wanted to keep them for a backup plan.
Bianca woke up to find David sitting nearby. He wanted to have a reasonable conversation but she threatened to go to the police for drugging her. He assured that the drug he administered will soon be out of her system, plus he's not about to let her ruin Greenlee's victory. David was unnerved when Bianca said that Greenlee doesn't really love him. Confident that Greenlee already experienced her triumphant moment, David allowed Bianca to leave.
Jack showed up at the party, where Ryan shared that Madison aided Erica's
escape from the hospital. An agent with the SEC arrived and canceled the
party due to an ongoing investigation. David and Bianca showed up and both were alarmed that the celebration was called off and Erica was missing.
Tad met up with Damon's adoptive father Paul, who assumed Damon was in trouble again. Tad announced he is Damon's bio dad but Paul said he
suspected that for years. Paul groused that Damon was a problem child as
soon as he could walk; Tad said he had a special offer for Paul. Tad
returned home to find Liza had left but told Damon that he wanted to adopt him. Meanwhile, Liza ran into Paul, who revealed Tad's adoption request.
Erica and Greenlee emerged from the elevator to find that the SEC had
confiscated all of Fusion's computers due to the embezzlement of the Miranda Center. La Cane was delighted, until an agent said that Fusion was closed down for now. Erica offered to share Fusion with Greenlee but she refused. David and Jack arrived, but couldn't calm their ladies down. Bianca appeared and pointed out that Fusion could be lost for good. Erica declared to Greenlee that they will save the company now; Greens will go to jail later.
David and Greenlee discussed how they would address the whole "Erica's story." Greens then went to Erica and Bianca and flatly said, "Let's just do this." ... Investigators wanted to shut down Fusion to investigate the books. "This seems like a witch hunt," gasped Erica. The probe prompted Greenlee to admit -- on the record -- that Erica was innocent. As the Fusion crew readied for the press conference, Ryan tried to keep the peace between the warring factions. He worried that Madison wanted to take the rap for the "accounting screw up" that led to the crash. Erica wouldn't hear of it. Erica and Bianca tried to get Greenlee to turn on David. She stayed true, but Erica insisted that David needed to be arrested. Later, Bianca called Kendall to let her know things were okay at home. Bianca hoped her mom and Jackson could celebrate their engagement. Later, Ryan and Madison ended up in a kiss.
David went to Jackson and asked him to reconnect with Greenlee. Jack told David he wanted to be a part of his daughter's life but since she's under David's influence, he didn't see how that was possible. He tried to wish for the best between David and Greenlee, but couldn't get past the trouble David brings with him. Watch your back, Jack warned. David and Greenlee discussed drugging Bianca. "I was motivated in helping you," David insisted. Greens secretly wondered if she should align herself with David or Erica.
Liza talked to Colby about love. Colby thanked her. In a father/son chat with Damon, Tad admitted his indiscretions and told Damon that he's still proud of his boy, despite his missteps. Just then, Colby and Liza showed up. They discussed their plans for the evening. Damon admitted that he really wanted to be a Martin, prompting a hug with Tad. Colby told Damon she was worried because she said, "I love you," but he didn't say it back." Damon insisted that he was gun shy, but he didn't want to mess things up.
Liza was dumb-struck that Tad wanted to go through with the adoption of Damon. Once the kids left, Liza suggested that he look in matters before he go through with an adoption. Tad insisted that even if Damon was damaged goods, it didn't matter. Liza sighed. It would mean so much more if she was on board for a "family" reconciliation, Tad urged a wary Liza.
A local came by to talk to Caleb about the woman who fell out of the sky. He was pretty much silent, but told a neighbor that the woman who crashed into his house was named Dorothy.
A tired Angie worked in the hospital lab in the dark, checked out samples under the microscope and spoke into a recorder about her "patient's" condition. Just then, Jesse entered and turned the lights on. Jesse insisted that Angie eat breakfast to keep her strength up. "You get more done before 8 a.m. than most people do in a day," he pointed out. "And I'm still behind," she noted. Jesse reminded her that she missed an appointment last night to celebrate Natalia's promotion. Angie got angry with herself but said she'd make it up. Just then, her vision blurred. David entered and said he wanted to speak to Angie. She reluctantly agreed and Jesse headed to the station. Once alone, David told Angie he wanted to know what was going on with her. Angie was concerned but he wanted to talk about the budget. David then chastised her for the way she treated a patient, the young boy she worked on a few weeks back, pointing out that she wasn't wearing gloves, as is proper procedure. David walked out and Angie broke down.
At the station, Jesse told Natalia that Angie was very sorry she missed her last night. Natalia felt bad for Angie having to work so hard. Jesse then pinned the detective badge on Natalia and her co-workers all applauded. The Mayor stopped texting long enough to offer his congratulations. After, Jesse and the Mayor exchanged words about David. Then, as part of the tradition, the new detective had to buy lunch for her co-workers, who lifted Natalia up and carried her out.
At the luncheon, Frankie and Brot proposed a toast to Natalia. Angie arrived and hugged Natalia, and apologized for missing her last night. Angie gave Natalia some encouraging words when it came to dealing with the Mayor. Afterward, Angie returned to the hospital, where a patient's monitor went off and Angie's vision blurred again. Jake showed up and Angie asked him to take over.
Angie stopped by the park and met with the young boy she treated a few weeks ago. She said she had a few questions for him. Just then, the boy's older brother showed up and said his sib needed to get home. He handed his brother a cane and helped him home. Angie was stunned the boy was blind.
Elsewhere in the park, Jesse and Frankie had a quick bite. David stumbled upon them and told Jesse to avoid giving advice to the Mayor. After David left, Jesse told Frankie that his mother had a pregnancy scare. Frankie was speechless. He spotted a football and told his father to "go long."
Angie went back to the lab and made a startling discovery. Jake knocked and asked if she was okay. Angie said she was just concerned with a patient. Jake praised her for being a good doctor, but was worried she was off her game. Angie assured him everything was fine. Jake left and Angie went back to her recorder. Angie stated the "patient" had a transmittable virus of the eyes and the effects were unpredictable. Treatments, she noted, were purely experimental and complete blindness was a distinct possibly. Angie wept as she spoke. Frankie arrived and gave his mother a hug; Angie covered.
Later, Angie met Jesse for dinner and remarked on how much she enjoyed the sunset. Angie told her husband she needed to talk to him but they didn't get past small talk. Jesse took Angie home and told his wife he loved her, then said she was working too much and he wants her back. They needed to make time for each other, he said, urging, "Stay with me. I don't want either of us to leave this room for the entire night." He took Angie by the hand and was about to turn out the light when Angie stopped him, saying, "I don't want to miss a moment of this." The kissed passionately and moved over to the bed.
