All My Children Update Wednesday 7/4/01
Edmund finds Ryan asleep in one of the pews in the Chapel.
He wakes him and realizes that Ryan slept there waiting for Gillian.
Edmund tells Ryan that he had a hard time accepting Maria’s death
especially since they never found her body.
He says that he still doesn’t fully accept her death.
After yelling at Edmund, Ryan apologizes and then leaves saying
he’s going to get on with his life.
Carrying flowers, Leo enters Laura’s room but Laura
is nowhere to be found. He asks
where she is and is informed but the nurse says “I’m sorry.” Afraid that something bad has happened he takes out his anger
on the nurse unaware that Laura and Zora have returned to the room.
Seeing Laura he rushes to hug her and Zora assures him that Laura is
walking just as ordered. Zora puts Laura to bed and then lets Leo and Laura have a
few moments alone. Laura wants to
know if Leo talked to Ryan? He says
yes but explains that Ryan isn’t ready to talk to her yet.
Jake and Myrtle are getting ready for the Martin family
picnic when Tad and Jamie arrive. Tad
asks where Greenlee is saying he thought they were “joined at the hips or
thereabouts.” Jake tells him that
he couldn’t get rid of Greens fast enough.
Ryan goes back to the “Fidelity” and goes to his and Gillian’s stateroom. He starts grabbing Gillian’s clothes and throwing them on the bed. Liza enters and asks what he is doing? She urges him to take some time to grieve and he yells at her. He asks her if she thinks he’s not mourning his wife properly and how does she think he should do it? Liza apologizes for sounding like she was telling Ryan what to do, but she wants Ryan to know that Adam can handle IncredibleDreams.com while he takes some time off. Ryan thanks Liza.
Jesse takes Gillian through the doors into the bright
light. There are a bunch of people
moving slowly through the room and there is a fencer and a woman swinging on a
large clock pendulum. Jesse grabs
two glasses of champagne and toasts Gillian to eternity, but she says she
doesn’t want to toast anything. Jesse
tells her that it is her homecoming. She
tells Jesse that she doesn’t know anyone here.
"I don't belong here," she says. Cindy Chandler appears before Gillian and presents her with a
gardenia. She says that like Gillian, the flowers were her favorite. Gillian
asks Cindy for privacy. Cindy
agrees and goes to the other side of the room and starts talking to some people.
Gillian asks Jesse how the woman knows that she liked gardenias. Jesse explained
that they all knew everything about her. Travis Montgomery introduces himself.
He tells her she’ll get used to being dead. Gillian has other ideas. She pinches herself and said that
she was sure she would wake up and find herself in Ryan's arms.
When asked why she hadn't woken up, Jesse informed Gillian that she was
"the deadest thing." Jeremy Hunter greets Gillian. Gillian recognizes
his name and mistakenly calls him one of Erica's husbands. Jeremy corrects her and
Cindy returns to Gillian and introduces herself. Gillian remembers seeing a
picture of Cindy when she and Scott were seeing one another. Cindy says she
knows that Gillian and Scott were going to get married at one time. Gillian
tells Cindy that she was a different person back then.
Cindy explained that everyone has had the chance to change. Cindy
promises that she would be in touch with Gillian again. Jesse receives a phone
call from the person who was to be Gillian's "next guide."
Natalie Dillon and Harold (the Bearded Collie) are the next guides. Natalie
promises to help Gillian get through this.
Natalie says that the first couple of days she too had a hard time
letting go of Trevor, Tim and Amanda.
Dixie and Tad go to the boathouse but can’t take a boat
ride since the oars are missing. However,
they do get into the boat and start making small talk. Tad starts to laugh at them saying it’s funny how they are
talking to each other like they don’t know everything there is to know about
one another. Dixie says she is sure
that they have things they don’t know and asks Tad if he knows that she now
sleeps in the nude.
Vanessa is shocked at how well Laura looks.
David discharges Laura and David sets up an appointment to see her in one
week. Joe follows him out of the
room and tells him to clean out his locker. Be gone tonight he tells David.
David declares Joe a sanctimonious old fool.
Name calling is a rather desperate measure Joe tells David.
David blames Tad and Jake for Joe’s decision.
Joe tells David to take a look in the mirror and he’ll find the reason. He tells him
that his ego is huge and that he is done and PVH and done taking care of Laura.
Meanwhile Leo tells Laura about their new condo.
Laura is very excited and they discuss it while Vanessa asks to see
Brooke. In the hallway Vanessa
thanks Brooke for giving Leo a chance and Brooke tells her that Leo is a
wonderful man and had made Laura so happy.
Vanessa asks Brooke to help out Leo for a while financially since she
knows that Leo really doesn’t have any skills and they don’t know the status
of his job with Ryan. Of course, she says, she and Palmer will help out as much
as they can too. Brooke assures her
that everything is taken care of and that she even co-signed for the condo.
Dixie laughs at Tads face.
He says he’s sorry it’s just the image she has left in his mind…not
that it’s a bad image or anything. She
prods him to share something with her but he doesn’t think he can top her
little tidbit. Joe arrives at the
picnic and tells Jake about his run-in with Hayward. Joe says he has a sneaking suspicion that they haven’t seen
the last of David. Jake says he
hopes so “for their sake” and nods toward Tad and Dixie who have begun
kissing after Dixie trips and Tad catches her.
After meeting Natalie, Gillian tells her that she has
changed her mind and that she will have a glass of champagne. As soon as Natalie leaves to get it, Gillian runs for the
elevator and pushes the button. When
the door opens Harold is in the elevator and barks at Gillian. Natalie tells Gillian she is lucky Harold stopped her since
that is the elevator down, all the way down.
She begs for help from Natalie saying that there must be a way back to
her life. Natalie hedges.
“I knew it, I knew there must be a way,” exclaims Gillian.
Natalie tells her that there is a small loophole.
The loophole is that she can go back and perform a task but that she must
search out the task. Before she can
explain everything, Gillian is anxious to go back and do her task.
Gillian promises to work hard and complete her task so that she can go by
to Ryan when the task is over. Natalie
sends her to her task.
In the stateroom Liza says goodbye to Ryan and leaves.
He promises her that he will be fine.
Ryan breaks down when she is gone and Gillian appears in the doorway.
“Ryan,” she calls. He
starts to turn toward her.
Tune in tomorrow…
