All My Children Recaps
AMC Week of March 7, 2011
Cara and Jake had an emotional moment as Amanda watched unseen. Cara gave Jake back her engagement ring. She left and Amanda revealed herself. Jake told Amanda that he would give the ring away and that he forgave her for calling immigration. Amanda left; Jake ran into Griffin and narrowly missed seeing him swiping meds. Jake returned home and Amanda seduced him.
Griffin warned his mom to back off when it came to Tad and Cara. Jesse entered and Tad asked Jesse to vouch for him. Jesse hissed that he wanted to talk Tad out of the wedding. Once alone, Tad talked Jesse into being his best man.
JR blew up at Colby for the video she posted about Liza. Asher entered and offered to do technical damage control. Colby didn't want the videos taken down. Meanwhile, Liza was confused by the leering looks she was getting at ConFusion.
Diane told Ricky that he'd have to get rid of Kendall if he couldn't find the evidence. Kendall got a call from Diane, pretending to be the school nurse, who told her Spike had a stomachache. Ricky said he'd stay behind and lock up the boat, thrilled with his chance to scour the place. Kendall returned unexpectedly whilst Ricky was still pawing through her things and demanded an explanation. He claimed to be missing his cell phone. He then “found” it. Griffin entered, upset with Kendall and Ricky for potentially jeopardizing Kendall's health. Ricky pretended to leave, but really listened in on Griffin and Kendall and learned about Griffin taking the drugs from the hospital.
Opal and Krystal worked on decorations for the wedding. Krystal was having a hard time with the changes to her family that were imminent. Opal tried to talk Krystal out of her plan to move out. Cara showed up for her (fake) bridal shower, where she met up with her family. Tad arrived. Liza pulled him to the side with a wedding present/peace offering. Kathy showed Liza the damning video. Opal saw it, as did Krystal, and the ladies read Liza the riot act. She rushed out. Cara tried to do damage control for her stunned mom. Back at the house, Cara gave Tad the chance to back out. He assured her that he wanted to go through with it.
Colby and Liza had a run-in in the park. Colby was unrepentant about the video.
While Jake was showering, Amanda found the ring he was supposed to have given away in his jacket.
Opal noticed that Tad had been in a good mood ever since getting engaged. Meanwhile, Agent Trumbull questioned Frankie about Cara, upsetting Griffin.
At the police station, Jesse got a call from Angie, who had been cleared to travel home.
Cara dreamed about her wedding day to Jake. Kendall gave Cara a wedding present. Griffin showed up to warn Cara about Trumbull's latest inquiry. Griff offered to skip town with her if she didn't want to go through with the nups. Cara assured her brother that she wanted to marry Tad. Kendall assured Griffin that Tad is a good guy.
Amanda questioned Jake about why he hadn't given away Cara's ring. Jake got irritated with his wife. A fight ensued and Amanda refused to go to the wedding. Joe and Ruth arrived and grilled Jake about his feelings about his ex marrying Tad. Amanda claimed to her in-laws that she was too sick to go to the wedding, but they saw through it.
JR prepped AJ for Tad's wedding. AJ wondered why people always leave them. They went to the wedding and JR faced an icy reception from Krystal. Krystal told Tad that she was thinking of moving out. Tad thanked Krystal for being amazing. Joe and Ruth came to see Tad. Tad came clean with them about the nature of the wedding. Joe didn't want Tad to go through with it. An arriving Cara heard Tad refer to Amanda as the person who called immigration. Cara hightailed it to Amanda's to confront her about the call. She then returned to the Martin house and confronted Jake about not telling her that Amanda was the caller. Jake prepared to leave to go find his wife. Trumbull arrived and asked, “Is there a problem?” They claimed everything was fine and invited Trumbull to stay. Kendall reassured Griffin that everything would be fine with Cara and Tad. Griffin's mom asked Griffin who the lady was. He deflected.
Amanda went to ConFusion for a drink and ignored a call from Jake.
Griffin and Cara shared a warm moment before he walked her down the aisle. Jake looked like he was going to be sick. JR eyed Marissa during the ceremony as Cara said her vows. Tad said his vows; they were pronounced husband and wife. Trumbull went to ConFusion and saw Amanda getting trashed.
At the Martin house, everyone toasted to Tad and Cara's happiness. Jake and Cara shared an awkward hug. Tad tried to convince Joe that he was doing the right thing. Opal used the happy occasion as an excuse to hug Griffin. Marissa resisted pressure from AJ and JR to stay overnight. Cara said good-bye to her mom, whose cab arrived. Everyone dispersed. Tad observed that they were being watched from outside by an undercover agent. To make their wedding night look more authentic, they went to a hotel. There, they shared a first dance.
At ConFusion, Amanda drowned her sorrows in dirty martinis. Trumbull approached her. Amanda tried not to succumb to his goading. Jake called and Amanda said she'd meet him at the house. Trumbull tried to get Amanda to open up to him. JR came to her rescue and brought her home, where Jake arrived soon. Amanda told Jake that she knows he still has feelings for Cara (he denied it).
David met Ryan and Greenlee at Krystal's. David was in scrubs because he was volunteering. David offered his full cooperation in their search for Emma. Ryan explained his plan to lure Annie out of hiding.
Scott used his computer access to schedule a sonogram appointment for Madison. He was there when she heard her baby's heart beat for the first time. She learned it was a girl. Greens ran into Scott as he was holding the pic from the sonogram. Ryan joined and congratulated Scott on his baby girl-to-be. Ryan's broadcast plea to Annie hit the airwaves. Back at the apartment, Scott told Mad about the deep feelings he was developing for her and the baby.
JR was psyched to come home and find Marissa there. JR vowed that the house would be full again.
David, Ryan and Greenlee waited together to hear from Annie. David's cell phone rang and he answered it...
Kendall and Griffin met at Krystal's. He talked her into telling the police about her Zach suspicions, so she showed the letter to Brot.
Erica spoke with Ricky about the Kendall situation. Erica got a call from Jack and she excused herself from Ricky. When she went home, Jack had packed their bags as a surprise and asked her to come with him to find out what he had in store. He brought her to the yacht; he had bought it from Kendall.
Madison told Scott about an idea she had for a new organic line for Fusion. He was enthusiastic. She got a stomach cramp. Mad insisted that it wasn't a big deal. She went to work and caught an earful from Randi about not telling Ryan the truth about the baby. Randi got a call with bad news about the company.
David got a call from Emma. Ryan grabbed the phone. Emma asked to speak to Madison and hung up when Ryan said she wasn't there. Ryan told the group what Emma had said. Ryan left to find Madison. David asked Greens when she was going to vouch for him regarding his medical license. She snapped at him and he theorized that she was ticked off because Ryan needed Madison, not her. Randi called with the news that an ingredient in one of Fusion's products was "potentially toxic." Ryan came home and told Greens that was going to ask Mad to come to Boston with him to find Emma. The Laverys went to Fusion and Mad agreed to go to Boston.
Ricky told Diana that Griffin had been stealing meds. He went back to Fusion and saw Kendall meeting with Brot and Griffin. A snarkfest broke out between Griffin and Ricky and Kendall apologized to Ricky on Griffin's behalf, which he did not appreciate.
Erica went to ConFusion to see Caleb. He asked her if she still planned to quit Cortlandt. Erica said no. She was alerted to the Fusion crisis, and the staffers' inability to find Kendall, so she got up to leave. Caleb made a parting dig at Jack.
Scott caught David trying to access the hospital computer. The men exchanged harsh words. David was suspicious as to how Scott secured his job at the hospital.
Ricky broke into Kendall's house. Kendall returned home shortly thereafter and could sense that something was amiss. But when Jack and Erica showed up, she decided she was just imagining things. Kendall told them that she was going to drop the idea of Zach having been murdered.
Kendall walked into Fusion to find out from a flustered Greenlee that their
new line may have to be scrapped because of a toxin. Greens was peeved that
she couldn't reach Kendall last night when the crisis first started because
her phone was turned off. Kendall claimed she was dealing with a personal
problem but Greenlee was unappeased. She finally softened when Kendall
lamented that Zach's letter has made her lose her sense of direction.
Ryan and Madison returned from Boston empty-handed. A disappointed Ryan
thanked Mad for joining him and offered to make her breakfast. She begged
off but was hit by a cramp. The pain intensified so he took
her to be checked out by a doctor.
Jake tore into Scott for breaking into the computer system to get Madison
ahead in the line for an appointment. Jake warned another infraction would
mean immediate termination.
Griffin blasted Amanda for turning in Cara to INS. She apologized and
claimed she never knew his sister was in danger. After Griffin left, Amanda
hoped Jake will be able to secure permanent employment for Cara.
Diana accused Ricky of being off his game due to his obvious feelings for
Kendall. Diana stroked Ricky's hair and wanted him to come back to the hotel
so she could help him with his focus but he pushed her hand away and said it
wasn't going to happen for them.
The day after their wedding, Tad and Cara returned home and he carried her
over the threshold in order to perpetrate their sham marriage. Tad got a
kink in his back and needed Jake's help with unloading the bride. Jake
explained the hospital board would need to approve a permanent position and
Cara was grateful. After Cara left the room, Jake asked how far his brother
is willing to go for her but Tad was put off by the question. In the other
room, a distrustful Cara bristled when Amanda tried to make nice.
Kendall showed up at the hospital and told Griffin that Zach's letter was
causing too much trouble for her and she needed to move on. She then
crumpled up the letter and tossed it into the wastepaper basket. After
Kendall left, Griffin fished out the letter. Meanwhile, Kendall came home
and was elated when Ricky showed up. He advised her to concentrate on the
good memories of Zach.
Scott told Greenlee that helping Madison is his way of making up for his
past mistakes. Meanwhile, Ryan brought Madison to the hospital and during
an examination, the doctor asks how far along she is. Ryan answered 11 weeks
and an uneasy Madison sent him on an errand. Mad then confessed to the doc
that she is actually 19 weeks pregnant. Oops. Ryan overheard that and told
Madison that Scott wasn't even out of prison then. "I'm the dad," Ryan
realized, as Greenlee watched.
