ATWT Recap Written by Wanda

Craig is astonished that Carly is speechless for once in her life. She sneers that he should be in some maximum-security prison somewhere. But she will stay and be his drinking buddy since he asked. She reminds him though that she hasn’t forgotten the trail of victims that he has left behind including her own sister. He retorts that as he recalls she wasn’t exactly Miss Popularity herself. And how noble of her pretending to send Jack off in wedded bliss to someone else. Underneath every cynic is a romantic that has been dumped. Well good for her, sometimes it is liberating to let someone else go free. Paul tells Barbara that he is avoiding her. Meg wants a divorce, and he doesn’t want to talk about it. She offers him help in getting Meg back. He has no choice since there is no one else. Her solution is to get Josie to come back and pay her more to change her story. Paul is loathe to do it, but Barbara tells him he has to get his life back and Josie may be that only chance. Meg drops in on Dusty and still wants to be his friend. He doesn’t hold her responsible for Paul’s actions. He just hopes she stays away from him this time. He also admits that he put this Josie before finding his own son, now the trail has gone cold. He’s not sure how he feels anymore, but he offers Meg a cup of coffee at Java. Brad confronts Dani to see if there are any more leads in Spencer’s case. He comments to Katie that it may not be a grand conspiracy, but it is interesting that Dani is always there when the police drop the ball. Dani calls Craig, who does not take her call but continues to talk to Carly instead. He doesn’t believe her that she wants to be an independent woman without a man, not the Carly he knows. She assures him that he doesn’t know her, and that man would certainly not ever be him. He reminds her they weren’t so bad in hitting the sheets previously. He comments that he would do anything, even sleep with the enemy, to find his son.

Dani finds Craig and in her brief conversation Carly is not fooled. She thinks Dani sounds more like a jealous lover than like a daughter which Craig alludes to. Craig catches up to Dani and tells her she doesn’t have to be suspicious of his golden oldies. They need to stick to the plan. She snorts that she is sick of the plan. In fact she is getting sick of him too. But Craig won’t let her go until he tells her she can go. And he declares that she will do exactly what he tells her to do. Paul shows himself to Josie rather than Barbara whom she was expecting. He wants her to talk to Meg and convince her that Paul wanted her to tell Dusty the truth, but that she thought she was in love with him and refused. She turns down double the money he offers. He grabs her by the arm and tries to force her until Dusty walks up and demands he leave Josie alone. Meg suggests that Dusty take Josie with him and she will stay and deal with Paul. Dusty tells Josie that Paul will not let up on her as long as she is in town. She needs to leave. She exclaims that she has no family, just a degree and a pile of loans. She won’t take Paul’s money nor Dusty’s. She’s not for sale. He says he’s only trying to buy her a new start not to buy a clear conscious as she states. She wants what he has; a place that feels like home where people care about you. He cared about her once. She wishes they could get that back. He agrees to dinner, with no promises and no more lies. Meg returns to the farm but immediately has pains. Paul shows up and takes her to the hospital. The doctor calls it Braxton Hicks contractions and takes her home. Katie comes looking for Craig, but runs into Carly instead. She chides Katie for hating her brother in the past and now suddenly she is his alibi. Take it from an expert, Katie is terrible at lying. Katie asks her to let this go. Brad looks for Dani and spies her with Craig. She tells Craig she doesn’t see what is so bad with people thinking they are lovers. At least that way they wouldn’t suspect something else between them. He warns her to watch her sexy little mouth. If she blows this, she will regret it for the rest of her life. As long as Spencer stays out of sight, Brad can’t prove that he was set up. Paul tells his mother that Josie refused more money, but Barbara won’t let him give up. He claims everything he does always backfires, and he digs a deeper hole. Paul says he loves her, but if she really wants to help, just leave him alone. Craig enters his room only to find Brad sitting there. Craig quips that he usually invites his guests in, but why be so formal they are family now. Craig would like to avoid this, but Brad says it is the perfect time for him. He’s involved his sister, Brad’s wife, into something and he’s not leaving until he finds out what.
