A Recap of 2007 Thus Far
2007 began with Carly and Simon getting closer and eventually leaving town to
evade prosecution for stealing jewels. Jack and Katie harbored a lot of resentment
for their exes but found love in each other. Carly returned by early summer
ready to reclaim what was hers, but it wasn’t available. Parker didn’t want anything
to do with his mom, and Jack certainly didn’t want another unstable
relationship with his ex-wife. Carly and Jack were forced together when a
character from Julia’s past (JJ’s mom) came to town and kidnapped JJ. Carly and
Jack ended up traveling across the country and tempting fate multiple times to
save their son.
Brad was waiting in the wings hoping Katie would fall in love with him but it
didn’t happen. Brad tried to avoid getting sucked into Carly’s plans to break
Jack and Katie up, but he gave in and helped her out. Carly learned she was
dying the week Jack and Katie were supposed to get married. Brad was the only one
there for Carly as her condition worsened. Carly was put in the hospital on Jack
and Katie’s wedding day and the truth came out. Jack stayed by Carly’s side
eventually ending his marriage to Katie and planning to marry Carly.
Carly almost won the man, but the truth about her illness was revealed. She was
accidentally misdiagnosed and didn’t tell Jack because she feared losing him to
Craig and Paul continued to fight over Meg all year. She flip flopped from month to
month on who she wanted to be with. Finally deciding she was in love with Paul,
she plotted to get Lucinda’s company back by marrying Craig. The marriage was
supposed to be a sham, but they are still married and expecting a baby. Paul
followed Meg on her honeymoon and was pushed off a cliff by Craig. Meg was in a
deep depression believing that Paul had died. Paul survived and came out of a
coma in the same hospital Rosanna was in. Paul stayed with Rosanna and brought
her out of her coma. Rosanna returned to Oakdale with Paul. They wanted revenge
on Craig and they got married.
Luke found love, but not before getting involved in the almost murder of Gwen
and Jade. Jade brought a Gwen look alike named Cleo to town to break Gwen and Will up.
The less fortunate Cleo became obsessed with the aspiring singer who embraced
her. While on a special concert tour in Branson, Missouri, Cleo snapped
and tied Jade and Gwen to train tracks. Will and Maddie saved them just before a
train hit them.
Maddie still suffered from emotional problems stemming from her
sister’s serial killing spree. Casey didn’t help matters as he became heavily
involved and in debt from gambling. Finally Casey stole from Will landing
himself on probation and eventually going to prison. Maddie and Gwen became
entangled in the murder of Adam. Adam attempted to attack Gwen, Maddie saw it,
and hit him over the head in the woods. It killed Adam, so they thought, and
they hid the body. Maddie, Casey, Will, and Gwen had to go on the run as Jade
got closer to the truth. Adam didn’t die and he was out to get them all. Jade
led Adam to a hideout when the four kids were on the run. Casey and Will fought
Adam off and he disappeared. The kids returned home. Shortly after returning
home Gwen found out she was pregnant but lost the baby. Gwen is determined to
give Will a child, no matter what it takes.
Emily began prostituting and enjoying it, until she discovered a “John” with a
porn DVD of Allison. Dusty and Emily saved Allison from the immoral life.
Allison was hooked on drugs and defiant. It took Emily falling in love with
Dusty and learning he and Allison had a one-night stand to straighten Allison
up. It wasn’t long after Allison returned to Oakdale, Aaron did too, but things
weren’t smooth between the ex-couple.
Emily left town and returned with Chris, the ex-fiancé of Allison, after learning
of the one-night-stand. Dusty remained a helpful friend to Allison but soon
found plenty of trouble of his own.
Having battled Cherie, the town madam, for the entire year, Dusty found that he
was the prime suspect for murdering her. Dusty’s only friend Lily helped,
despite what her friendship is doing to her marriage. Cherie turns out to be the
biological mother of Noah, the new WOAK intern who is homosexual. Noah became Maddie’s boyfriend after Casey
went to prison but was attracted to
Luke. Luke was attracted to Noah as well. Noah couldn’t face his feelings for a
because his father is a stern, disapproving Army colonel who must always be in
control. Col. Meyers turned evil, first killing Cherie to prevent Noah from
learning she was his mother, then attempting to kill Luke to get him out of
Henry found himself in a love/ hate relationship with Vienna that soon turned to
pure adornment. Vienna stayed in Oakdale through the good and the bad with Henry.
They almost married but he couldn’t because he feared he was still in love with
Katie. Realizing he loves Vienna, they have a fun flirty relationship. Henry won
Al’s diner in a poker game.
