All My Children Recaps
AMC Week of June 28, 2010
Jack was unable to convince Bianca to help him thwart Erica from leaving the hospital. Ultimately, Erica talked Jack into seeing matters her way and they left the hospital. They went to Fusion together.
Jake and Amanda chatted in the park about the possibility of Jake and Trevor accompanying her to Italy for her photo shoot.
Angie pondered the possibility of going blind while in bed with Jesse. When Jesse woke up, she put on a happy face. Jesse went to work and found out from Natalia that Mayor Blanco had been by that morning. Jesse decided to send Nat down to West Virginia to see what was delaying the investigation into Erica's plane crash. Jesse explained to Nat that he didn't want to let David slither out of trouble this time. Meanwhile, Angie had another bout of visual disorientation while at the hospital. Jake spotted her having difficulty navigating the halls. Jake forced Angie to cop to her vision troubles. With difficulty, she admitted that she was experiencing periods of total vision loss due to a rare condition that she had contracted from the young patient she'd treated without wearing gloves and she could go permanently blind. Jesse showed up and Jake blanched as Angie pretended to Jesse that everything was fine. After Jesse left, Jake urged Angie to come clean with Jesse. She explained that she feared what Jesse would do if he knew of David's role in her illness.
Bianca went to Wildwind and asked Greenlee if she was going to turn in David. David eavesdropped as Greens insisted to Bianca that she trusts her husband completely. After Bianca left, David revealed his presence and noted that Greenlee had considered flipping on him. Greens didn't want to talk about it and stormed out. Greenlee went to Fusion and told Erica and Jack that she wasn't going to turn David in. David entered and announced to the group that he had confessed to setting Erica up to look like she had embezzled from the Miranda line. David said that he had good lawyers on his side. Jack accused David of being responsible for the plane crash, which David denied. Erica said she didn't know who David was anymore and couldn't say with confidence that he hadn't tried to kill her. Greenlee told David that she didn't want him to do this; he said he couldn't live with himself if he didn't. Greenlee was moved by his nobility.... Erica mused to Jack that it might be time for her to step aside from Fusion. Jack noted the change in Erica since her experience on the mountain. Jack got a text informing him that Doc Waller had sent them instructions from Palmer regarding his will reading.... Bianca marveled to Greenlee that David had decided to do the right thing.... David met with the SEC investigator, who he'd paid off. The fella agreed never to let Greenlee know that David only turned himself in because he'd been guaranteed leniency.
Erica had a sexy dream about Caleb and woke up to find Bianca at her bedside. Binks wanted to know who Caleb is, since her mother was murmuring his name in her sleep. Erica described the grumpy hermit but Bianca sensed there was something more. Bianca shared she was leaving for Paris right after the reading of Palmer's will but will be back for Erica's wedding to Jack. Krystal showed up and, after Bianca left, recounted Jack's devotion to Erica. Krystal hoped that Erica is 100 percent in love with Jackson so he won't be hurt. La Kane ordered her to mind her own business. Meanwhile,
Caleb read, then destroyed Jackson's legal letter saying that Caleb's refusal to accept Erica's compensation for his destroyed property would absolve her of any future obligation.
Scott worried to Annie that he will be exposed if Palmer reveals the nanotech project in his will. Scott was grateful when Annie said she would accompany him for moral support. Later, Annie had reservations about going and Scott said he would text her later. After Scott left, Annie and Marissa crossed paths, then rehashed Annie's affair with JR. She chided Marissa for withholding sex from JR. The ladies got physical with each other and knocked over a portrait of Palmer, breaking the frame. Annie whipped out her nail glue for an emergency repair job.
While waiting for Palmer's will to be read at the yacht club, JR voiced his concern to Scott that too much Chandler money was being invested in the nanotech project. Scott advised his cousin to get on board.... Erica derisively asked Krystal if she cooked grits for Jack during her absence but Krystal countered that she can serve up much more than that.... Scott texted Annie to come to the club and she arrived with Marissa. The tension between the ladies was evident and their guys separated them. Everyone took their seats when one of Palmer's favorite songs began to play.
Jack opened Palmer's will, which spelled who is bequeathed what:
Peter: A trust "to fund his dreams." Opal: Besides money, Palmer arranged for the old Glamorama sign to be restored. There was also a letter that revealed his intentions to ask her to marry him again. Bianca: The puppets Palmer used to entertain her with as a child and a letter that reminded her how important her relationship with Erica is. That compelled Binks to tell Mom that she will bring her kids to Pine Valley for a longer stay. JR: The forgotten shares that Palmer owned in Chandler Industries, making JR equal partners with Scott. JR also got a letter from Palmer that he wanted
to read in private, Scott: Palmer warned Scott to not take what isn't his. A nervous Scott stood up to defend himself and Annie stopped him. Jackson then presented Scott with a picture of Pigeon Hollow that Stuart had painted along with the reminder that Stuart was a man of integrity.
For some reason, a break in the reading was called. JR found a private spot to read Palmer's letter. It contained keys to Dixie's beach cottage that Palmer encouraged his nephew to use when he needed to to find himself. Annie appeared and saw the keys. JR explained why Palmer left him the cottage and she wanted to know why there are two keys. Marissa interrupted them and JR left with his wife.
Annie was surprised when Scott said he was okay with being an equal partner with JR. Scott looked at Palmer not revealing the nanotech project as a second chance.
The reading resumed and Jackson announced that Palmer is leaving Cortlandt Electronics to Erica and his nephew Caleb. Erica was stunned when Caleb arrived.
Erica was stunned when Caleb showed up at the yacht club. Caleb wondered if "Dorothy" was playing a trick on him and planned to take his check and leave. As Jack cautioned that the matter was a bit more complicated than that, Opal observed to Krystal that Caleb reminded her of Palmer. Jack explained to Caleb that Palmer had put him in the charge of the company alongside Erica. "No way!" they both protested. Caleb was anxious to leave but Opal tried to talk him into staying. Jack informed Caleb that Palmer had purchased Wildwind for him. Jack and Erica brought him there. They invited him to dinner but Caleb said no (he doesn't trust restaurants). Once alone, Caleb groaned, "Pete, why did you do this to me?" At dinner, Erica told Jack that she wanted to set a wedding date. She hoped to be married by the end of summer.
At the Chandler house, JR phoned the board members to let them know he was now an equal partner in the company. Marissa was upset by JR's focus on business. Marissa and Annie got into another verbal disagreement in the hall and JR asked them what they had fought about earlier but neither woman would reveal the truth. Annie left to deliver a check in Palmer's honor to the hospital. Marissa called Krystal and left to go meet her. She was terse with Tad when they crossed paths on her way out. Tad and JR talked about Palmer's bequeathal. They discussed the state of JR's marriage and JR adamantly denied that he had feelings for Annie. Tad accused JR of being addicted to Annie and urged JR to get Annie out of his life.
At Fusion, David made more arrangements for the charges against him to go away. Greens walked in and David covered. He assured Greens that she had nothing to worry about. They kissed passionately and she wondered how she would ever be able to thank him. When they got home, they learned that they had been locked out by the police department. They headed to see Jesse, who reported that Palmer had purchased Wildwind and the eviction was legit. David and Greens got a room at the yacht club and she told him that it was okay that there was only one bed. She told him that because of all that he was willing to sacrifice for her, she no longer felt alone. He carried her to bed.... Jesse asked Tad to help him pin the plane crash on David.
Marissa told Krystal about the fight that she had had with Annie. Krystal balked at Marissa's plan to give herself a sexy makeover to better compete with Annie. Marissa got upset, told off Krystal, and stormed out. Marissa purchased a sexy new dress and left a message for JR saying that she couldn't wait for him to get home. AJ saw Marissa all dolled up and said that he was scared. She told the boy that she was going to wash off her face.
At the hospital, Annie tried to get Frank to pull Angie out of a meeting so that she could donate the check. Annie slipped and referred to JR as the man she loves. JR showed up and made the donation to the hospital before Annie had the chance. She was annoyed and taunted him about Scott having something (her) that he wanted and couldn't have. JR told her that he was going to conquer his craving for her the way that he manages his craving for alcohol. JR went home and told Marissa, who had shed the skintight dress and face full of makeup, that he was thinking of going to the beach cottage that Palmer had left for him by himself. She protested.
David and Greenlee snuggled in bed at the yacht club. He assured her that she wasn't going to lose him but she worried about him going to jail.
Ryan and Madison encountered each other while out on a jog. She tripped and he helped her up. He massaged her leg when she got a charley horse and David and Greenlee, who were strolling through the park, approached them. Ryan urged David to cop to sabotaging Erica's plane. Greenlee told Ryan and Madison that David is building her her dream house. After the Haywards left, Madison revealed to Ryan that she had sold her watch in order to pay him back. Ryan was impressed by Madison and invited her to join him on his upcoming business trip to New York. Meanwhile, at Fusion, Greens assured David that she felt nothing for Ryan.
Colby shared with Liza the news that she had been selected for the fashion internship in New York. Colby made it clear to Liza that Damon is going to New York with her. Liza expressed her concerns; Colby waved them away.
Jake and Amanda went to visit Tad and Damon. Damon went to the car to get the gifts Amanda had lugged home for the kids. Tad told Jake and Amanda that he plans to adopt Damon. Amanda went outside to help Damon and found his phone. Spotting the pic of a scantily-clad Liza, she immediately confronted Damon. Damon told Amanda the truth about how the picture had come to be taken but asked Amanda not to tell Tad. Damon pretended to delete the pics at Amanda's request, then had to cover when Colby arrived. He and Colby went to Krystal's and she told him about her internship. Damon told Colby that he didn't think he'd be able to go her and her feelings were hurt. She rushed off.
Amanda went to the yacht club and berated Liza about the pictures. Liza admitted that she had been in the wrong. Amanda beat a hasty retreat when Tad arrived. Tad thanked Liza for helping him with the adoption. Liza went to the Martin house and lambasted Damon for letting Amanda see the pictures. Damon assured Liza that he took being adopted by Tad seriously. Meanwhile, Colby opened up to Tad about her squabble with Damon. Colby thought that Damon might be cheating on her and tried to hire Tad to investigate.
Amanda went to the hospital and pleaded with Jake to talk to Angie about getting time off to join her on the photo shoot in Italy.
Damon wanted to know why Liza was being nice to him. She asked him to erase the pictures of her but he balked. Liza implored Damon to be straight with Colby and promised to be his friend if he did.
Tad assured Colby that Damon wasn't cheating on her and refused to investigate him. Colby went to the Martin house to see Damon. He said he had to go somewhere but would call her later, leaving her upset.
Brot and Jesse discussed Jesse's investigation into Davids' activities. Tad came by and updated him on his investigation.
When Tad returned home, he found Paul, the man who raised Damon, who had brought some of Damon's belongings. Damon walked in and was upset to see Paul. Damon spat that Tad had already been more of a father to him than Paul had ever been. Liza and Tad, meanwhile, chatted on the porch and she admitted that she was worried that Damon would end up disappointing him. Tad went back inside and, when Paul proclaimed Damon a lost cause, Tad threw him out of the house. Damon went to see Colby to apologize for his earlier behavior but he urged her to go to New York without him. Damon told Colby that she shouldn't put him ahead of her career and an eavesdropping Liza was impressed.... Paul and Tad ran into each other at ConFusion and Tad punched him. Brot witnessed the event and Paul decided to press charges. "It was so worth it," said Tad.
Amanda and Jake planned the trip to Italy that they hoped to take, pending Angie giving Jake the time off. At the hospital, Angie recorded an update on her condition into her dictaphone. Jesse stopped by and tried to get Angie to tell him what was going on with her. Angie was evasive but agreed to meet him later for dinner. Jake came to see Angie and she reluctantly agreed to let him take her to her doctor's appointment. Jake was taken aback when he ran into Amanda at the doctor's office. After he got rid of her with an excuse, Angie emerged from her appointment and told Jake that the doc had confirmed her self-diagnosis and given her an experimental medication to try. She insisted on going back to the hospital despite her sadness over the likely loss of her vision. There, they bickered over Angie's refusal to tell anyone about her illness. Angie promised to focus on her administrative duties but Jake didn't want her seeing any patients. She was grateful for his support. Jake went to fetch Amanda from work and he told her how lucky he was to be able to see her. Angie went home and Jake told her that he had to go to West Virginia to put the heat on the plane crash investigation. When Jesse railed against David, Angie tried not to betray her growing worry over what Jesse might do if he knew the role that David played in her illness.
