ATWT Recap Written by Wanda

Regrettably, Janet takes her wedding dress back to Fashions and asks for a refund. She explains she is still getting married, so it has a happy ending, just not in that dress. Carly walks up and quips that it looks like she is fixing a $5,000 mistake. Janet says it just didn’t seem right getting married with it in City Hall. Carly replies that Janet won’t be wearing her dream dress, but think of it this way – one more thing she can hold against Carly. She knows she gave up her Cinderella gown because Carly said they couldn’t afford it. Janet assures her it is okay. She’s only going to get married once and it is definitely Jack’s last. Jack misses Holden to return the money he loaned him. Lily manages to talk him into having the wedding at her house. Meg wakes Paul from a nightmare. It seemed so real. He saw Meg between Casey and Craig and they were pawing for her attention. She tells Paul that James is right. Paul is not man enough to be the father of her baby. Dusty gloats that now he has all the money and Meg and the baby too. Paul begs Meg not to call the doctor even though she warns him that there could be side effects from the anti-anxiety meds. He assures her that all he needs is her and his little girl. She tells him not to think about Craig and just to focus on his recovery. She gives him full credit for turning his life around, and says she is proud of him. Not wanting to see Craig, Dusty groans that he’d rather spend five years in solitary confinement than to listen to his nonsense. Craig produces Josie and thinks maybe they want to mend fences. Dusty is not happy to see her either, and wonders how she got hooked up with Craig. She explains that she barely knows him, but Craig tracked her down, told her that Dusty was in jail, so she came. Dusty made her walk away once before, but she’s not going to do that now. She feels responsible for him shooting Paul and she can tell the truth to the police.

Carly drops by Janet’s to pick up Parker’s books. Janet is trying on and wanting to decide what to wear for her wedding. Nothing seems to be just right and she does want to look like a bride. Carly offers her help. Just make a pattern from a dress that Janet does like and make it in white. She volunteers to do that. Jack drops by and can’t believe what these two women are doing in the same room together. He gives Janet the good news, no city hall wedding but at Holden and Lily’s. Janet says Carly is going over and beyond and she’s like to officially invite her to the awesome wedding. She explains to Jack that she is really doing this for them. She wants Carly to see them together, to see that this marriage is for real….it’s true and meant to last. That will nip anything else in the bud and Carly will be able to let him go. Lily cautions Carly that showing up at the wedding may not be a good thing for her. Margo is shocked that Craig would be willing to help Dusty and possibly get him out of jail. Craig sees Dusty again and Dusty is skeptical why he would help him, must be something in it for Craig too. Craig replies that he only wants peace in the family – family in the sense that they are both fathers to Johnny. He realizes now that Jennifer picked Dusty to raise her son and he is okay with that. And they won’t find Johnny unless they work together. He doesn’t want to be enemies any more, that won’t help either of them. But they could join forces and perhaps be able to bring their boy back. Craig tells Margo he realizes it is hard for everyone to believe that he is trying to redeem himself, but he’s really just trying to do the right thing. Paul is mad that Josie shows up at Fairwinds. He paid her good money to get lost. It’s too late for her to cry over spilled milk with Dusty being in jail. Josie declares she will not leave until she speaks with Meg, and Paul is vehemently against that. Meg returns and does want to hear what Josie has to say. However, she doesn’t believe her either. Dusty is using her to get himself out of trouble. She tells Paul that if he is lying that she will find out and it will be worse. He feigns disappointment that she would take an admitted con artist’s word over his. He agrees he was wrong, but he did it for all the right reasons. He loves her and was protecting his family. She assures him that she’s told him over and over that Dusty is no threat, but Paul ignored that and engineered this unforgivable scheme with Josie. Paul begs for her forgiveness. He will even go down to the station and tell them it was self-defense and get them to drop the charges against Dusty. She tells him to go now. Josie drops back in on Dusty and tells him she spoke with Meg. She’s curious why Dusty would still want to protect her. He admits she and his wife both had something in common – being victims of Paul Ryan. Josie says even more – they both loved Dusty. Paul bumps into Craig and has a few choice snide words for him. Then he tells Margo he’s there to correct an injustice. His memory is a little hazy, but Dusty is telling the truth. He shot Paul in self-defense. Margo files the papers and takes the handcuffs off of Dusty and says he is free to go. He lucked out, but don’t leave town just yet. Josie says that this calls for a celebration and Dusty accepts her offer for a cup of coffee. She mentions he must still care for her otherwise he would not sacrifice himself in prison. He tells her he doesn’t think it will work out for them. She gives him a kiss and he says he’s not sure about anything anymore, but thanks for the coffee. When Paul returns, feeling all good and tells Meg that Dusty is free now, she informs him that here is his key, she is leaving. He keeps saying he has changed, but he never will. Their daughter needs a mother strong enough to know when to be on her own because unfortunately her father can’t be trusted.

B&B Recap Written by Wanda

He cradles her in his arms and maintains that he will be there for her always.

Rick continues to beat upon himself and how all of this is his fault. He even confesses to Brooke that it was not Ridge that attacked him on the rooftop, but he attacked Ridge. He did that so she would break up with Ridge. He even forced her to make Ridge move out of the house, and faked his paralysis longer than he should – all for her attention and love and devotion which he felt was lacking. Brooke wants to take some responsibility in that feeling, but Rick won’t let her. In fact he confesses more, it was him that edited the podcast so Ridge never heard the good things she said about him. Ridge was angry and almost left Brooke then. Rick wishes he had. He also tells her about sending Marcus to Paris and his move on Steffy. Phoebe found out and this is what led to her being so hurt and angry that she jumped in his car and grabbed the wheel causing the accident. None of this should have happened, and it’s all his fault. Lt. Baker walks Stephanie through the accident site. She then goes to see Brooke and blames Rick again for her granddaughter being dead. This was no accident. It was his irresponsibility and carelessness that caused this, and she vows that Rick will pay for what he has done.
