All My Children Recap With A Friend 2/22/11
Wedding Bells Are Ringing
The INS believed Tad when he declared he and Cara are engaged to be married. When asked for proof of this, Cara pulled out the ol' engagement ring that hangs around her neck 24/7. The one Jake gave her years ago during their stint together at Doctors Without Borders; the one that ridicules Amanda every waking second. It lucked out that she's been clutching onto it. Who woulda thunk it? So, miraculously, INS was satisfied with their story, and so now Tad and Cara have a wedding to plan. Yay! A spring wedding. I knew Tad and Cara were a better couple than Cara and Jake. Oh, wait, what is that? Hold the phone? Jake doesn't know that Amanda was the one who ratted Cara out to the government? Jake still has to find out this information? Oh no. Poor Amanda. Not only will Tad be giving her those dirty you-are-scum sneers, but soon Jake will be too. It's inevitable.
Ryan filled David in on how Annie had been trying to kill Marissa and now-aha!-David's been caught on film helping Annie. Not a very doting daddy, are ya? Well, with a daughter like Marissa, who can blame him? But, David is set on making things right again. He told Ryan where Annie should be hiding out: none other than a cabin near a forest near Stowe, Vermont. Has anyone else been following (okay, and entering) the contest HGTV is running right now? A chance to win a mega-house in Stowe, Vermont? I have caught "All My Children" doing product placement over the last year, but this one is really interesting. Wouldn't that be awesome if they showed Annie and Emma hiking up Highway 108 right past the Dream Home?
Madison has high maternity bills. She was finally hit with them. Why is she seeing an out-of-network provider? Surely, she has her pick of obstetricians at Pine Valley Hospital. She went to Greenlee to ask for help, and Greenlee suggested she have Scott help her. How can Scott afford to help her when he is working as an $8/hour clerk? But, Madison said she would rather work overtime hours instead, and Greenlee approved it. Greenlee does care.
The Last Time Ever I Saw Your Face
Opal opened her big mouth and told Colby that her grandmother, Marian, had slept with Tad, crushing a teenage Liza back in the day. On a hunch, Colby asked Liza point-blank, "Mom, did you sleep with Damon?" To which Liza blubbered and said, "Oh, I guess you'll never talk to me again." End scene.
