Footage of the surgery, like a documentary.  

Wow, wasn't expecting that for 80s TV. 

 

I wasn't aware that JC had substance abuse issues, but I wouldn't be surprised if all those unexpected absences were stints at rehab.

Yeah, the facelift was a pretty big deal.  

 

Jeanne Cooper was evidently a little bit vain about her appearance, and for YEARS she wore these rubber bands, that were fastened behind her head, which pulled her cheekbones tighter and smoothed some of the lines above her mouth.  When she decided to have a facelift, and Bill Bell agreed to write it into the show, she started leaving off the rubber bands, and her face fell pretty drastically.  She looked terrible, if you think wrinkles look terrible (which I don't).  That was written into the script too.  Jill Foster paid her a visit and said, "My God, Kay.  What HAVE you done to yourself?!  You look positively awful, even worse than usual, and you normally look petty terrible", etc.  These scenes were done because Jeanne Cooper had been advised by her doctor that for the face-lift to be completely successful, she needed to remove all the stress and worries from her life.  Likewise, Kay Chancellor went through the same process, trying to make peace with Jill Foster, but of course it didn't work.  Still it was fascinating to watch.  

 

The surgery was taped.  The removing of the bandages after the surgery was also taped.   (They had a backup plan in case she bled a lot.  If she'd bled excessively, they were going to cut the scene, wipe off the blood, rebandage her, and then "reveal" her for a second time, this time with no blood.  But as it happened, she didn't bleed, and they were able to use the first take.)    Her real doctor did the reveal, and the actor playing her doctor on TV said the lines of dialogue while the real doctor unbandaged her.   We never saw the real doctor on camera, just the actor who played the doctor. 

 

Jeanne Cooper was an alcoholic and also a heavy smoker, like the character she played on the show.  Kay Chancellor periodically stopped drinking, and then would fall off the wagon again.  Jeanne Cooper was going through the same things in real life.

I think.Y & R milked the Jill and Kay feud far too long from the mid 80s and after with no break.  At least from 1980 through 1983/4..the feud was rested except for occasional encounters at social events.  There was little to no break from the mid 80s and there after.  

 

I'm excited to see more of the 1975 summaries since GL is getting close to when the Dobson's first took over.

Funny and this is just a random observation, how come when jill and Katherine would have there verbal show downs cussing each other out about Phillip this and that, why was there other feud with derek never mentioned as a jab at each other.

 

Does anyone know how long the jill/Katherine/Derek story ran for, even later on in the years they always argued about phillip but not Derek or Mayne it's because Derek didn't die tragically that could why i guess.

Derek was first introduced in 1976 but the story was scrapped after a couple months. Then Joe LaDue came on 77 - 81, but Jill had exited that triangle in early 1980. By May 80 she was already working at Jabot. Derek last appeared in 1984 at Victor and Nikki's wedding, though very briefly and I am not sure he was ever mentioned again, other than Kay referring to Thurston as one of her married names. Not sure why they never argued about him, would have been cool to have his name brought up in their fights. Bell seemed to just act sometimes like certain characters never existed.

Another World

Iris Carrington was proceeding with plans for her wedding to Russ Matthews, but to the dismary of her housekeeper, Louise Goddard, seemed to completely disregard Russ’ personal wishes for the wedding or the future. Over his objections, she had invited her vacuous jet-set friends from New York for the ceremony and had actually told Russ’ aunt, Liz Matthews, that despite Russ’ desire to havie children, Dennis, her son by her previous marriage, would just have to be enough for Russ. However, Louise’s greatest fear was that Iris would completely lose Russ when he discovered that instead of accepting her father Mac Cory’s marriage to Rachel, Iris was still engineering a plot to break up that marriage. Indeed, Iris brought Phillip Wainwright from New York to try to put Rachel in a compromising position, but the plan hadn’t worked. Phillip was deeply hurt by the loss of his girlfriend Clarice when she discovered that he was part of this shabby scheme and Phillip had tried to show Iris that Rachel indeed loved Mac, not his money, and it was only Iris’ jealousy that prevented her from seeing that. Iris continued to drop remarks to Mac in Rachel’s presence about how dangerous Phillip was with married women which upset Rachel, as it increased Mac’s jealousy. Rachel had continued her riding lessons with Phillip, but only on the condition that attorney Barbara Weaver, her good friend, was always with them. Phillip finally set up a meeting with Rachel and Barbara at which time he begged Rachel to get Mac to take her out of Bay City until Iris’ wedding was over, for the sake of her own marriage, but he refused to discuss it furtuer. Iris, realizing that if it was going to be done, she was going to have to do it herself, embarked on a new scheme.

 

Under the guise of giving all relatives a piece of her jewelry in honor of her wedding, Iris told Mac that Rachel should have an antique brooch which belonged to her mother. She showed it to Mac who was delighted by her choice. After Mac left, however, Iris pried a pearl out of the setting. Later when Rachel arrived, Iris presented the brooch to her in Louise’s presence insisting she wanted her to have it and wear it to her wedding. However, when Louise left the room, Iris pretended to notice a pearl missing and told Rachel she’d have it immediately fixed and bring it to her. After Rachel left, Iris told Louise Rachel took the brooch with her to her riding lesson. Iris then had the brooch repaired and bribed the jeweler to forget he ever saw her. Rachel, meanwhile, worried about Phillip’s words, asked Mac if they could go away, suggesting their absence at the time of the wedding – Rachel was previously married to Russ – would make things easier for the Matthew family. However, when Mac reminded her the opening of his publishing complex was approaching, she dropped the subject. Mac was confused when Rachel told him Iris kept the brooch to have a missing pearl replaced when Iris told Mac that Rachel had the jewelry. Learning that Phillip was leaving town, Iris realized she had to act. She summoned Mac in tears and told him Phillip repaid the personal loan she made him with a brooch given him by his married lover – the brooch she gave Rachel. Iris insisted she hated telling him this, but it proved Rachel had been unfaithful from the start. She discounted the missing pearl story by displaying the perfect setting and called in Louise who honestly said she saw Rachel accept the brooch from Iris. Mac was devastated. He painfully told Iris she shouldn’t have told him this, saying he had never loved before. Iris was aghast, asking if he didn’t love her mother. Mac brokenly revealed that marriage was arranged and Iris’ mother died before they had a chance to know if they loved each other. Mac then questioned Barbara who staunchly defended Rachel against Iris’ insistence that Barbara was shielding her. Barbara insisted that Rachel would never hurt Mac. Learning Rachel had already left for her riding lesson, Iris dispatched Mac to catch Rachel and Phillip together. When Iris then assured Barbara she had done all of this out of love for her father, Barbara disgustedly replied she didn’t love him of she couldn’t have destroyed his happiness.

 

Rachel was reluctant to wait at Phillip’s without Barbara but he quickly told her the whole truth about Iris’ scheme explain losing Clarice made him realize love was more important than money. However, Mac walked in and finding her there was convinced Iris’ story was true. Rachel, seeing the level of Mac’s insane jealousy, didn’t try to defend herself, rather she asked why he was willing to believe Iris instead of trusting his wife. He replied in light of all this he couldn’t. Crushed, Rachel felt she had lost Mac’s trust forever and went to Ada’s leaving Mac with Iris who continued to turn the knife in his wounds.

 

Rachel later tried to reason with Mac at their home. Despite her assurances she loved him and had done nothing wrong, Mac asked if she was the girl who hit Phillip with the crop. When she admitted this explaining she concealed it for their sake, he insisted this kind of live proved he could never trust her again. Rachel told Mac of Iris’ plot but he called this an ugly lie. He suggested they try to make a marriage out of what was left but Rachel in tears, replied if he couldn’t love her the way she loved him, she didn’t want it – she couldn’t live with that after what they had together.

 

When Clarice, who was dating Neal, learned of the breakup, she confronted Phillip on his involvement. Believing he had no part in what Iris did, she gave Ada the check Iris gave her to keep quiet about the plot. Clarice kept the check with no intention of cashing it. Ada called Russ and Clarice told him the story. Russ didn’t want to believe the woman he loved could be capable of this treachery but Ada appealed to his sense of fairness begging him to find out if Iris was guilty of creating this entire situation. Ada returned home, with hope, to find a note from Rachel saying she had gone away to pull herself together.

 

Alice Frame and her brother-in-law Willis, returned from Oaklahoma where the funeral for her late husband Steven Frame was held at his family home. Alice was grateful the funeral was there as she had learned much about Steven’s past and was grateful that Steven’s sister, Emma, had come to Bay City to help her and Willis through this trying time. Alice was determined to go ahead with a single-parent adoption, but the judge ordered an additional search for recently orphaned Sally Spencer’s relatives be undertaken before the case was heard. Rachel’s son, Jamie, whose father was Steven Frame, had been taking the death of his father very badly, but Emma’s reminiscences helped.

 

Since Steven’s death, Willis had pressed his power play moves againt Vic Hastings for outright authority control at Frame Enterprises. While it was Vic who had the experience of the company, Willis made it clear he was the partner in the firm – a partnership which John Randolph, the firm attorney, and Vic realized Willis would never have had if he were not Steven’s brother. Architect Carol Lamonte, who was furious with her plan to break up her boss Robert’s marriage to Lenore worked, but backfriend in that Robert fired her instead of falling into her arms, had gone to Willis to convince him to give her, not Robert, the contract on the shopping center for which Frame Enterprises was the contractor. When Willis pointed out the shopping center project was almost promised to Robert, Carol told Willis if Robert did the job, Vic would get the credit as he arranged this. If Willis got a new architect, he got the credit. Vic tried to explain to Willis that Carol was too inexperienced to go the job and she was only doing it to hurt Robert, but Willis, annoyed at what he felt was interference by Vic, replied the decision was his alone. Carol, meanwhile, sneaked into Robert’s office and copied the bid file on the supermarket project; her bid therefore came in considerably under Robert’s. Carol continued to play Vic against Willis, but Willis finally told her the company couldn’t afford to take the loss if her lack of experience blew the contract. Insisting she needed the chance, Carol, who was wealthy in her own right, offered to guarantee to underwrite her losses, if any, to make up the difference. With this guarantee, Willis gave Carol the contract.

 

Furious at learning of the contract award, Robert confronted Willis scathingly saying Carol bought the award. Willis again pointed out the decision was his and forbade Robert to discuss it with Vic of would ruin Robert’s company. Carol then visited Neal Johnson, Robert’s associate, flauing her suite of offices at the Bayview Towers, admitting she was out to ruin Robert because of the way he treated her. Carol, unable to be Robert’s carrer guiding force, was apparently trying to be Willis’s career mentor by cutting Vic out of Frame Enterprises. While Vic had always given presentations for the company, Carol pressed Willis to do the shopping center presentation himself as people would otherwise think Vic ran the show. She virtually told Willis, unless he ran all facets of the company, people would think he was a token figurehead. Willis further infuriated Vic by ordering him not to go to Washington D.C. – Vic had helped Lenore secretly leave town and had arranged a job and an apartment for her. – However, to gain him out of town for the presentation, Willis finally told Vic he should go to the Frame D.C. office the following day and he, Willis, would handle the presentation. When Willis refused to back down, Vic said he could announce his resignation at the same time. John persuaded Vic to hold off his resignation for Alice’s sake as well as the company’s and warned Willis to make concessions to keep Vic, because without him there would be a question of leadership in the firm that could ultimately destroy Frame Enterprises. The customers’ confidence laid with Vic. Alice had been reluctant to get involved in the business, but learning of Vic’s threatened resignation, she agreed to try to persuade him to stay. She said Vic should decide the next project. Willis soon realized presentations weren’t his thing, they were Vic’s and he needed him, if only for that. Carol, however, told Willis she had access to virtually everything he needed to make the firm his and cautioned him not to play it safe. Ironically he noted that his girlfriend Angie disapproved of his course of action and without her approval, there was no enjoyment in the work. Willis confided to Angie he had helf inferior all his life – that creepy Willis in his hand-me-down clothes – and he was determined no one would stand in his way of being “someone.” Touched, Angie promised she wouldn’t let anything come between them. Angie’s pleasure at hearing Willis make conciliatory statements to Vic on the phone were a little dimmed when Willis admitted John convinced him he needed Vic. John made Alice, who held control of Frame Enterprises, see that Steve had intended Vic to run the company if he couldn’t, that Willis was assuming authority Steve never intended him to have. Alice acquiesced for the good of the company, but expressed concern that Willis not be humiliated in his necessary eviction from the executive office he had been using.

 

Even though it had been almost 10 years ago since her daughter Jennifer disappeared, Beatrice Gordon, the Corys’ housekeepr, finally agreed to allow Gil McGowan to being a new confidential investigation.

 

Marianne Randolph had met Chris Pearson, a junior at Bay State College, who was applying for a summer job at Frame Enterprises. While Willis seemed unimpressed by Chris, Marianne put in a good word for him and Chris was hired on a temporary basis. Suddenly, Marianne, who had definitely decided against college, had begun to study hard for her exams with Chris’ help, hoping to enter Bay State in the Fall. Chris and Marianne began dating and he took her to a dance at Bay State. However, when they came home late and her father John found them kissing on the sofa, he read Chris out for bringing her home late and for what he assumed happened. Marianne was furious at this overzealous embarrassment. Chris went to John’s office the following day to offer his apology again and to tell John that Marianne needed confidence in herself. Both Pat, John’s wife, and Jim Matthews, his father-in-law, told John he was overreacting, that fathers invariably resented the boys their daughters dated.

 

Gil had agreed to unofficially help Robert in he search for Lenore, but pointed out her letter made it clear she left of her own accord. Neal told John that Robert was not doing any work, he had lost all interest in everything. In fact, he had turned his curring project entirely over to Neal and noted his only friend was his bottle. Helen Moore, Lenore’s mother, tried unsuccessfully to make Robert see he was destroying himself and the company. Barbara had started to refuse to see Vic socially. She explained that she was fed up with his “secret errands” which she felt indicated indifference towards her and she couldn’t tolerate it. She made it clear that she had guessed his errand was Lenore, that they were out of town the same time and since he wouldn’t explain it, she would no longer see him. When he complained about the way she had treated him, Barabra said she was treating Vic the way he was treating her, with indifference, and that Lenore stood between them and always would until he talked to Robert. Vic visited Lenore in Washington. She admitted she still loved Robert but maintained her right to leave. Vic hoped to keep the D.C. office open so he could visit Lenore every few weeks. When Robert, intoxicated, found Carol at Willis’ office, he tried to warn Willis that Carol was a barracuda. Carol’s vindictive verbal assault on Robert shocked even thick skinned Willis.

 

Since Jim Matthews had started to shake the depression he had suffered since the sudden death of his wife Mary, his sister-in-law, Liz, was suddenly very worried that Jim might be susceptible to a conniving woman’s advances. Jim’s son, Russ and Dr. Richard Gavin poo-pooed this. Russ and Dr. Gavin later agreed it was actually Liz’s problem, not Jim’s. Liz assured Dr. Gavin she was not romantically interested in Jim but she was afraid he could be taken advantage of.

She was uneasy about coming between Dan and his ex-wife, Susan. Kim’s sister, Jennifer Hughes, reassured her. Dan urged Kim to get a quick divorce, and Kim discussed it with John, who said she could do whatever she wanted, but he had been countin on the 6 months a divorce would take in Oakdale to try to win back her love. To reinforce his feeling to Kim, Dan shared Betsy’s real parentage to her. Betsy was his real daughter, but he felt it best to have her think of him as his uncle because of the emotional upheaval of her mother’s death. Kim looked forward to mothering Betsy and Dan’s daughter by Susan, Emmy. When Emmy didn’t recover from a cold and sore throat, but became worse, Dan rushed her to the hospital, where she was found to have bacterial meningitis, Dan tried to contact Susan but to no avail. Dan’s father, David and John both found Susan unconscious from drinking and were unable to rouse her to get to the hospital. Kim finally succeeded with a cold shower, eggnog, and determination. Susan begged for a drink, but Kim refused, making Susan realize Emmy needed her. Susan almost collapsed at the hospital, but Dan straightened her out by calling her a quitter. Ampicillin was prescribed for Emmy, but had no immediate effect on her 105° fever. After a long day at Emmy’s side, Susan ran into John. She clung to her purse, and recalling another time when she had scotch stowed in her purse, John asked her to leave her purse with him. Susan was torn. Finally, when Dan interceded, reminding her he had been there, she gave the bottle to him. They stood vigil all night. Kim confided to Jen that she didn’t feel she could take Dan from Susan and resolved to stay away from him until Betsy, aware of Dan’s feelings for Kim, said Dan needed her. Kim went to the the hospital to find Susan had disappeared. She offered to search and found Susan in the Chapel. Kim told Susan Dan wanted her, then stayed behind, shocked at herself. Emmy was worse.

 

Jennifer found the competition in her med classes was terrific, and when she expressed her feelings of inadequacy to Bob, her husband he was supporting, saying once she was organized, she would do well and he was proud of her. Jen and Bob both tried too hard to reassure each other that the classes wouldn’t have any effect on their lives, despite the disruption of plans through such things as a conference with Jen’s teacher scheduled during dinnertime and Jen’s helping Kim with Susan, necessitating her going to class without going him first. Nancy Hughes, Bob’s mother, refused to understand when Jen turned down a morning of shopping or dropped Frannie, Jen and Bob’s daughter, off in an emergency. Candidly, Nancy pointed out to Bob that the inconsistency of adult supervision in Frannie’s life was bad. Jen did better and was selected to represent her class at a conference in Cleveland, necessitating her leaving Frannie alone for almost a week. She was afraid to tell Bob. Bob’s ex-wife, Sandy Wilson Garrison, arrived in town – for a reste – and lunched with Bob. Chris found Sandy’s son, Jimmy, was living with Sandy’s father. Sandy was evasive about her past.

 

Jay Stallings, after assuring his bride, Carol Hughes Stallings, that he never looked at anyone after meeting her, had to do some fast talking to keep her when Carol discovered he had a tryst with Susan. During the upheaval, Jay demanded Carol choose between him and the Hughes clan. They ironed it out, and went apartment hunting, choosing an expensive apartment near Kim. Accidentally, Tom Hughes, Carol’s ex-husband, saw his girlfriend’s medical file on his father Bob’s desk. Bob refused to discuss Natalie Bannon’s case. When Tom asked Natalie about her recurring visits to Bob, she insisted it was just flu, then stormed at Bob for allowing Tom to know so much about her illness. Suddenly, she told Bob he could tell Tom, then when he did, Natalie accused Bob of being unethical to break them up. Tom took that to Bob, who reassured him, then confronted Natalie in front of him. Through fast-talking and a show of tears, Natalie cleared herself.

 

Days Of Our Lives

Julie Anderson, badly hurt by the very cold reception she received from her son, David, explained to Doug Williams that David obviously came home for his inheritance from his grandmother, and he was showing his natural father, David Martin’s playboy traits. Indeed, David had asked Marty Hansen – Mickey Horton – to look at the trust papers to see if it could be broken. Julie later told Marty it might be better if David couldn’t get the money immediately, as he would have to rethink his lifestyle, and give Julie time to get a line on Brooke, David’s new fiancee, whom she was convinced was putting on an act. Indeed, seeing Brooke clowning around at Doug’s Place while Doug rehearsed – Julie had long been in love with Doug -, Julie acidly remarked she had “seen Brooke’s performance from the beginning.” Brooke appeared to be crushed and hurried in tears to Phyllis Anderson’s boutique – Phyllis was Bob’s ex-wife – finding Bob there. She told him in tears Julie was sarcastic to her and Bob left to confront Julie. Playing Phyllis’ jealousy of Julie, Brooke told her she wanted Julie to love her as her own mother had died. Phyllis compassionately embraced Brooke, who stood there self-satisfied. Brooke then fed Phyllis’ self-pity, assuring her Julie got pregnant only to hold Bob, and telling Phyllis she would get Bob back one day. Bob castigated his wife Julie for being cold to Brooke and Julie in turn was annoyed that Bob was at Phyllis’ again. Julie then went to Don Craig for reassurance. He told her that he found Brooke dressing up in Julie’s clothes and noted her fascination with them as if she had seen what she wanted and was moving in on it. Learning of David’s half-million inheritance, Don warned Julie not to meet this straight on or she would lose. He suggested playing it Brooke’s way – fight sweetness with sweetness.

 

While out walking, David accidentally discovered The David Martin clinic, which he didn’t know existed. Walking in, he found Susan, who was shocked to see him. He vaguely remembered her as the woman who took care of him, but was amazed to learn she was his father’s wife. Realizing what lied ahead, Susan asked Doug to tell Julie she would accept anything Julie felt she had to tell David. When David finally asked Julie to tell him about his father, David Martin, Julie straightforwardly explained she and David were in love, but following a lover’s quarrel, he got Susan pregnant, and, at Julie’s prompting, married her. Susan then would not give him the divorce she had promised and when Susan’s baby, Dickie died accidentally as a result of David’s inadvertent carelessness, Susan shot and killed David and was later acquitted on a verdict of temporary insanity. David accepted all this, coming away with admiration for his mother. Their relationship seemed to become closer and David began to fell he had come home. Brooke however was horried to find that David was honest in his admiration of Julie and insisted that she was leaving. As David tried to pacify her by reminding her of the money, she tried to alienate his affections for Julie by reminding him that Julie gave him up for adoption. David was disgusted at her attempt, but felt he had to find out why. He questioned his grandfather Tom Horton, who admitted it was he who practically forced 16-year-old Julie to give her son up for adoption. He then added Julie returned and fought to regain him in a bitter custody battle and then married Scott Banning so David would not lose the only father he ever knew. David was deeply affected by this. He felt he owed her so much and admitted he hated Mom for all the wrong reasons, because he never understood. When Julie told Susan she had to tell David the truth, she was horrified when Susan hysterically accused her of throwing her to the wolves. Still sure that Brooke was not what she appeared to be, Julie asked Don to investigate the girl’s background. Brooke, however, decided to try another angle, and went to Julie contritely confessing she tried on her clothes and Don caught her. She said her parents did not have money, she was a scholarship student at the university and put on the act she did as she was afraid Julie would think she wasn’t good enough for her son. She then asked Julie’s forgiveness. Julie, overjoyed with her new friendship with David, accepted Brooke’s apology and even sent Brooke on a shopping spree to Phyllis’ boutique. She then told Don to cancel the investigation, but he replied, “You may be taken in, but not me. I’ll pay for the investigation if I’m wrong.” Julie, sure that he relationship with both Brooke and David was fine, was very happy and content with her life. Even with her new clothes, Brooke still couldn’t keep out of Julie’s closet and trying on Julie’s full length mink told herself, “I’m going to have it all – money, position, clothes, and nobody is going to stand in my way.” David warned Brooke she’d better cover that story about a dead mother before Phyllis started repeating it and Julie picked up on it. So, Brooke cleverly told Bob, with tears in her eyes, she always said her mother was dead, making him feel like a cad for mentioning it.

 

However, returning from an evening out, Julie found Brooke and David making love in Bob’s studio and told David his lack of discretion could embarrass Bob. David cruelly reminded her of his illegitimacy, saying like mother like son. Julie slapped his face. Julie was horried, sure she had lost David again. Brooke later assured her she hadn’t but implied she, Brooke, was the one who can smoothed the troubled waters.

 

Depressed by David and her marriage to a man she didn’t love, Julie drove to Doug’s Place where Neil Curtis, in a moment of honesty, told her Doug still loved her and made reference to her cancelled abortion. Julie confronted Doug who admitted he broke off their marriage plans to stop the abortion. He admitted he loved her, but they both realized there was nothing they could do about it. Bob awoke to find Julie gone and Brooke; on a calculated hunch, called her at Doug’s Place – Brooke had sensed something between Julie and Doug -. Julie rushed home and surprised Brooke by gaily telling Bob she had been having hot chocolate at Doug’s Place.

 

Robert LeClair had returned from Paris and Doug asked him to come back to work as as singer at Doug’s Place as he needed more time for his daughter Hope who would soon be living with him.

He was married to Maggie Hansen who was recovering from surgery to regain use of her paralysed legs -. Linda tried to hide the desperate need she had to know if he remembered their affair as she saw his disgust over the man who hwas Mickey Horton. Linda continued to make herself indispensable to Maggie, and it was to Linda that Maggie admitted she was terrified of Mary’s memory returning as the Horton world was more interesting than the Hansen world. Bill Horton, Maggie’s doctor and Mickey’s brother, accused Linda of undermining Maggie’s spirits by actually proposing the idea of Marty’s memory returning and he ordered her to stay away from Maggie. However, without Linda there to support her, Maggie’s courage faded and her therapy suffered a setback. Marty, seeing Maggie’s helplessness, went to Linda, accusing her of abandoning Maggie. She tearfully told him Bill ordered her to stay away. Marty insisted that Linda was important to Maggie and had to visit her. Mike went to Linda accusing her to using Maggie for her own motives. He was disgusted at his father for being taken in. Marty decided that Maggie’s recovery didn’t need to occur at the hospital and he began arrangements to take Maggie home to the farm and provide therapy for her there. Linda had agreed to accompany them. Feeling Maggie’s health as well as Michael’s relationship with his father were being risked, Tom accused Marty of taking Maggie away from the hospital for his sake, not her’s. Upset to learn Michael wouldn’t visit the farm if Linda was going to be there. Marty confronted the boy who told Marty that Linda was not giving Maggie reassurances, she was increasing her doubts and fears. Marty warned Mike not to make him choose between his wife and his son. Maggie told Marty they couldn’t leave while there was trouble between him and his son. Trish Clayton, with whom Michael lived platonically, pointed out that if indeed Linda had driven a wedge between him and his father, perhaps he had better go to the farm to protect Maggie’s interests. Maggie told Tom she feared that staying in Salem could give her husband another heart attack.

 

Linda tried to win Mike over by admitting she loved Mickey, but not Marty. Mike asked if Linda’s daughter was his half-sister. Linda said no, but she wished she were.

Susan apologized to Amanda for her jealousy. Amanda assured Susan she was no threat; Susan’s husband, Dr. Greg Peters was just a friend, and she, Amanda, was still fighting her feelings for her ex-financé, Dr. Neil Curtis; However, at the clinic, Greg professed his love for her, but Amanda said she still loved Neil. She tried to convince him to return to Susan, but Greg said he doubted if the marriage could be or was worth saving. Amanda later admitted to Greg she was susceptible to him, but refused to hurt Susan’s marriage. She told him, however, he had shown her she could be with another man than Neil. Amanda had previously known that Susan’s baby, Ann, was not Greg’s child, but only when she read Greg’s brother Eric’s novel, In My Brother’s Shadow, did she realize that it was Eric who was the baby’s father and she asked Eric, who confirmed this. Greg told Susan he did have deep feelings for Amanda, but she hadn’t reciprocated. Susan, pleased he had opened up to her, told Greg the confrontation with Julie made her realize that she had been a shrew. Greg noted that she seemed different. Amanda told Neil she was upset by his letting himself and his career fall apart with his drinking and gamblind. She continued to insist, however, that she no longer cared about him romantically. But he pointed out she was very obviously concerned. Learning of Neil’s precarious financial situation, Phyllis convinced him to let her advance him a loan. Phyllis, who had been seeing Neil socially, remarked to Amanda that nothing could come of it because of their age difference, among other things. And, when Neil tried to make Phyllis accept him as a serious man in her life, she backed off, afraid to take this sept. When Neil finally paid Greg his overdue salary, Greg accused Neil of being law in his practice, noting more and more of Neil’s patients were coming to him, Greg. Neil told Greg that was what he was being well-paid for.

 

Neil was jubilant at a change in luck in his poker game and arrived at Amanda’s with his winnings to repay a loan she had made him. He was horrified to learn Greg had been trying to locate him. His longtime patient, Jim Warner, had suffered a massive attack and surgery had been delayed as Jim’s wife, Cynthia, had refused to give consent without Neil’s concurrence.

 

Arriving at the hospital with Neil, Amanda was touched at Cynthia’s complete faith in Neil. When Neil later told Cynthia that Jim didn’t make it, she assured him he and the other doctors did all they could. Neil, in great pain, turned to Amanda incredulously stating, “My God, she’s trying to comfort us!” Amanda took Neil home to her apartment and put him to bed. Greg arrived and angrily announced he was filling charges with the medical board against Neil for being out of touch with his answering service. Amanda told Greg he was so self-righteous. If he ever fell, it would be a long way down. Greg then said he loved her but she replied Neil needed her, he couldn’t make her choose. As he insisted he needed her as a woman and continued to vilify Neil as a doctor, Neil walked in and assured Greg he would see Cynthia’s face forever. Greg angrily left and Neil admitted he heard their discussion and pressed Amanda to admit she had made love to Greg once. They argued and she threw him out. He went to Doug’s Place where Greg, still seething, dropped Neil with two quick blows. Neil, smiling, assured Doug he had it coming.

Mike met a minister on the plane who caused Mike to reexamine his feelings about Toni, which he found in conflict with his feelings for nurse Dawn. Confused, Mike arrived at the Madison, where he was confronted by Alan Stewart, who called Mike a leach and impostor and demanded he leave. As they came to blows, Sgt. Ernie Cadman arrived.

Monticello’s Crime Commission, appointed to investigate the organized underworld activities of their beleaguered city, had been headed by the highly respected lawyer Mike Karr for over a year with the complete cooperation of Police Chief Bill Marceau and his trusted assistant, Lt. Luke Chandler. When the police finally contacted a possible secret witness, Ernie Casper, someone who had been high enough up in the ranks of the organization to name the names of all the important underworld bosses, an all out campaign of scrict security had to prevail to protect the life of his valuable witness. Mike, selected as Casper’s contact, met with him in a sleazy waterfront bar called Pier 19 and arranged to comply with Casper’s demands of no police protection and guaranteed him a large sum of money and a new identity in a foreign country for his valuable information. As good faith, Mike got Casper to agree to give the police the name of te mob’s informant placed in Police Headquarters, in return for $5.000. Just as Mike arrived at Pier 19, expecting to learn the informant’s name, he discovered Casper had been killed! Bill, Luke and Mike were mystified and chagrined as ti how their well-guarded secret could have poissibly leaked out resulting in the mob’s removal of their key witness before they could gain any useful information. The whole story leaked to the newspaper, presumable through the spy at Police Headquarters, further galled Bill and succeeded in frightening all other possible Crime Hearing witnesses underground. Johnny Dallas, once a part of the dyndicate as an undercover agent for the Crime Commission, had settled down into a peaceful life of running his popular New Moon Café and looking forward to the arrival of Laurie and his first child soon to be born after Laurie’s tragic and upsetting miscarriage. John found himself reluctantly involved again with crime when Gerald Kincaid, the mob’s silent partner in the New Moon, threatened Laurie’s life if John didn’t comply and “bug” his father-in-law’s private study phone so the mob could learn the name of the Crime Commission’s secret witness, who threatened the security of the anonymity of the mob’s key leaders. John, desperate to protect his vulnerable wife, complied, but almost immediately removed the bug. When Casper was found dead, John believed himself responsible but unknown to him, the bug hadn’t even been activated and it was the barman at Pier 19 who had informed Kincaid and who was really responsible for Casper’s death. Kincaid, cleverly seizing the opportunity to keep John entangled, gave John the complete ownership of the New Moon as his promised payment for services will rendered. At a follow-up meeting in Mike’s private study at home, Bill made a startling discovery that Mike’s phone might have been tampered with but they couldn’t be absolutely certain. Nancy Karr, learning of Mike’s activites, was alarmed over her husband’s dangerous involvement with hoodlums again and the possible threat to her home and family. Nancy was further concerned when Laurie, who had already confided in her mother about John’s strange over-protective attitude about her safety, and John appeared to be developing a rift in their heretofore happy marriage. At a confidential Crime Commission meeting between Luke, Mike and Brandy Henderson, who is the Assistant D.A. and liaison between the city’s law enforcement agencies and the Crime Commission, Luke told of the futile secret investigation that Bill had conducted to expose the spy at Police Headquarters, and postulated the spy had to be in the only other possible office that had access to confidential matters – Brandy’s office!

Adam, reminding Brandy that their resumed relationship was to remain a casual one, discovered that Brandy had difficulty keeping her deep regards for Adam in check. Serena, showing Adam her lovely oil portrait slashed to an almost unrecognizable state, and a second lipsticked death threat on her living room mirror, begged Adam’s help. Serena was convinced her ex-husband, Mark was responsible for all the vandalism and Adam was half inclined to believe her, because Mark did have a duplicate key to her apartment. Mark stoutly denied any part or any knowledge of there stange happenings and warned Adam that Serena was just using him. Adam was further upset when Mark seemed to know about Adam’s weekend plans to spend time with little Timmy, something he couldn’t have possibly been told. Although Adam felt rather coerced into following up on Serena’s unsanctioned promises to her son Timmy, he was understandably concerned when Timmy, awakened from a nightmare told of a dark-haired woman who had come to his private boarding school wanting to kill him. Serena, who appeared to have a restrained, subdued and vulnerable character, was actually, unknown to everyone – even to herself suffering from the clinical malady of a dual personality. The Josie side was brash, sexually aggressive and domineering and presented an actual threat to Serena and Timmy’s safety. Serena rationalized her strange behavior as fatigue or memory lapses, which had plagued her sporadically since her transient and unstable childhood. While acting under the influence of the Josie personality, she became friendly with Kincaid, who believed he had uncovered blackmail material against John, because John and Josie were loves. Kincaid was annoyed when he called a phone number, secretly taken off an I.D. on Josie’s keyring, only to have a rather indignant Serena tell him she didn’t know who he was. After a delightful weekend together, Adam, preparing to drive home, realized a small gift had been left in his car and returned unexpectedly to Serena’s apartment. Adam, finding the front door unlocked, and a terrified Timmy, who had sought refuge by huddling behind his bedroom door, hysterically screaming for his mother to save him from the threatening dark-haired lady who had suddenly appeared, rushed to the boy’s rescue. Josie, who hid in the closet as Adam entered, managed to give Adam the slip by getting away in the elevator before he had a chance to catch her.

Troubled times for the 7th Floor and General Hospital when Dr. Steve Hardy and Dr. Joel Stratton were forced to stand by and watch their medical careers be placed in jeopardy while controversy raged over who was entitled to research the various patient complaint files, including the disputed Pizzara case involving a malpractice law suite. While Mr. Thurston, Administrative Head of the hospital, and his assistant, Margaret Colson, who secretly bore a deep-rooted grudge against Joel, her former lover, had the files, Steve and Joel were completely unable to defend themselves against the charges. Steve, insisting he had complete confidence in Joel as a cardiac surgeon, was still worried about the reputation of the hospital because of his fiancée Kira Faulkner’s public announcement of the unsubstantiated charges brought against the hospital, which she had publicized on her popular newscast program. Steve’s personal feelings for Kira had been affected by her actions because he believed she should have been helping him and what obviously was a most important element in his life – General Hospital – and, instead, was defending her right to be an investigative reporter and expose the truth to the community no matter what the consequences. Kira believed their was no point in having an engagement if they couldn’t even discuss their future wedding date and returned the lovely diamond engagement ring to Steve. When Kira finally obtained the needed legal papers to gain accesse to the transcript and files, Thurston refused at first, threatening a long court battle, but Steve effectively fought for Kira’s legal rights, claiming the longer the hospital refused to allow anyone to see them, the more it appeared to the public that the hospital, was trying to cover up and Thurston relinquished the controversial records to Kira. Later, at the T.V. station, Steve asked a favor from Kira to allow Joel and him to have the files so that they might review them and to thus delay her public announcement. At some personal risk to her career and the station’s “scoop,” she agreed to let Steve have the records.

 

Joel, who had lost all will to fight the malpractice suit, appeared to have lost his confidence in his medical judgements as well, and refused to operate or give his opinions on medical consultations. Steve, pleased with Kira’s cooperation about allowing them a few days to examine the transcripts, was upset over Joe’s defeatist attitude and wondered about Joel’s innocence. When Margaret permitted Joel to see some original patient files, he was stunned to read about his questionable diagnosis and procedures in handling the case. Even though Joel couldn’t truthfully remember the former patient clearly, he was forced to realize he might have been negligent in the handling of the patient’s cardiac procedures.

When Jim mistakenly assumed Audrey’s evening meetings with lawyer Lee Baldwin, a reformed alcoholic, were come kind of a tryst, she confessed her fears over his drinking and all about AL-ANON. Jim, hurt and belligerent, insisted he was not an alcoholic and refused to allow Audrey to go to any more meetings. When Jim cut his hand in a drunken encounter at Johnny’s Bar, the barman took him to Joel and the Free Clinic where Steve, who happened to be there discussing the malpractice suit with Joel, insisted on driving Jim home. Steve, understanding Audrey’s concern for her unemployed husband, suggested Jim use his expert medical knowledge to act as one of the impartial examiners of the complaint files against Joel, who ironically as the man who replaced Jim as the head cardiac surgeon.

 

When signs of serious heart complications were added to the already dangerously ill Joanne Dawson’s critical kidney damage, brought on by the complications of a strep infection, her worried mother Jane turned to her friends for emotional support. Jane, believing Joanne would soon recover and making plans to being a more meaningful life together with her cheerful, sweet little daughter, as her divorce from Howie, was behind her, was completely destroyed when Joanne’s little heart just couldn’t function any longer and the child died. Jane shocked her concerned friends when she bitterly lashed out at Howie for having a secret vasectomy which prevented her from bearing more children.

Diana Taylor, who remained beside the grieving mother, realized how much she would lose if her only daughter, Martha, had been in Joanne’s place. Diana and Dr. Peter Taylor, who was secretly the father of Augusta’s unborn child, had just purchased a lovely new home and were finally a happy family unit. Peter consistently refused to discuss Diana’s desire about adopting another child. After the death of little Joanne, Diana believed Peter should be the one to go to the women’s prison and tell Augusta about Jane’s loss because of Augusta’s close friendship with Jane. Since Peter was the one that Augusta confessed to and had received mail from her, everyone believed that the sympathetic psychiatrist was just a close friend of the otherwise friendless confessed killer of Dr. Phil Brewer. Jessie Brewer, formerly married to Phil, recalled a conversation where he openly inferred Peter and Augusta were much closer than just good friends. Jessie, who was trying to understand the reasons why Phil became such a different person just before his murder, regretted mentioning Phil’s hostile innuendos to Peter. Peter’s intended arrival was noticed by prison trustee and cellmate Billie Dutton as being more than just a casual visit from a friend.

 

Dr. Lesley Williams, deeply hurt and bewildered over Joel’s sudden coolness towards her, reflected over her life and concluded she could never have a lasting relationship with any man. Unknown to anyone, Joel feared the recent discovery of heart trouble might mean the same serious inherited problems that claimed the life of his brother Owen and he didn’t want Lesley to know. Working daily in the Free Medical Clinic, which was supported by the wealthy Cameron Faulkner, Lesley treated a timid young man named Felix Buchanan for peptic ulcers which were aggravated by emotional stress and a poor diet. Felix, an unemployed veterinary assistant, was fearful of hospital, but promised to follow all Lesley’s medical instructions. Lesley, who had had to change her phone number recently because of numerous anonymous crank calls from a muffled voice claiming he loved her and wanted to protect her from the dirty world, was unaware that Felix not only had been the one calling her, but was also keeping her little English style cottage under surveillance as well. Cameron told Kira, his ex-wife, of his plans to propose marriage to Lesley. Lesley, not wanting to be alone forever and highly impressed with Cam’s desire to have more children, was undecided about her answer to Cam’s proposal.

Ed felt, however, as a neurosurgeon, that his present partial paralysis was as hopeless as total. Recovered enough to undergo electromyography, Ed’s test results showed scar tissue indeed blocking the nerve, requiring cutting and resuturing. Ed was called upon to give a deposition to the police in which he explained that Ken was not responsible for what happened and to put him on trial would be as senseless as the shooting. On the basis of Ed’s statement and his personal plea for Ken, the criminal charges against him had been dropped and he was entered into a sanitarium for treatment.

Holly pointed out he could stay and write there as well as anywhere, but Andrew replied that while he was staying for the present, he was not sure he could write there. Andrew immediately sensed Holly was under pressure and brushed off her assurances it was Ed’s arm injury, pointing out he had always known when she was concealing something. Under Andrew’s pressure and her own need to share the burden, Holly told her brother about her disastrous affair with Roger Thorpe a few years ago, her subsequent entrapment of Ed into marriage, the problems of her affair with Roger when he returned to town. Holly explained the baby was Roger’s, she and Ed were sleeping in separate rooms when it was conceived and she was terrified that Ed would realize this when the child he had so eagerly awaiting was born a month too early.

She answered she realized this and felt Billy had a right to his own friend. Peggy later told Leslie she was afraid to take another chance with Roger, even though she really wanted to, and later admitted to Ed that she was drawn to Roger, almost against her will. Holly became quiet upset when Ed casually mentioned this conversation with Peggy. And, despite her desire to forget the past, Holly, upon learning Roger might go to Mexico on a business venture with a friend, begged him not to go. Roger later told his father, Adam, he was not leaving, but the reason was his hope he could somehow reconcile with Peggy.

One Life To Live

The shocking discovery of police fugitive Dr. Mark Toland’s body – shot to death by a .32 caliber gun after a struggle, sometime between 9 o’clock and 10 o’clock p.m. – in the nearby parking lot of the Llanview Motel had rocked the peaceful existence of the inhabitants of the town. As the public clamors for more information from the local newpspaer, The Banner, owned and operated by the powerful Victor Lord, Police Lt. Ed Hall, investigating the Toland murder, had clamped the lid down tight on all information regarding the case. Ed received his first break when the motel’s desk clerk, Charley Woods, recognized Victor’s photo in the paper as one of Toland’s late night visitors. Since Ed was already suspicious of Victor, because of the unique, expensive umbrella found in Toland’s room – the other clue was a valuable jade medaillion -, he interrogated Chapin, Victor’s trusted man-servant, who denied Victor’s ownership of the umbrella. Ed, confronting Victor with the facts, learned that Victor received a call from Toland that night, but claimed he never entered Toland’s room because he was not in his room when Victor knocked. Further denying possible ownership of the umbrella, Victor claimed he couldn’t have left it inside the motel room. Victor recognized the umbrella as one he loaned to Dorian Cramer, and later confronted her in front of Matt McAllister, Victor’s trusted protégé, about it and learned that Matt had “borrowed” it because of the stormy weather when he went to Toland’s room to supposedly ask Toland to leave Dorian alone, but claimed Toland was absent whe he arrived. Victor, who was in love with Dorian felt betrayed by Dorian for not revealing her contact with Toland and ordered Matt to go to directly to the police and tell them his story, which he did, byt Ed was no more taken in by Matt’s story than anyone else’s. Eventually Dorian was able to regain Victor’s confidence and she learned of his love for her while it appeared that Matt had permantely lost favor with Victor. Matt bitterly threatened Dorian with exposure of all her devious plans to entrap Victor, and their plot to cover up knowledge of the valuable Randolph documents revealing the existence of Victor’s long lost illegitimate son if she tried to cut him out and got it alone. While Dorian attempted to gain the forgiveness Matt sought from Victor, she learned that Victor felt Matt had not only disappointed him personally, but professionally as well. Victor realized he was not only using Matt as an inadequate substitute for the son he longed to have to carry on Victor’s family name forcefully.

 

Ed’s second big lead was the police artist’s portrait, taken from the description of the desk clerk, of Toland’s second vistor that night. Although Vinnie Wolek, against the wishes of his wife Wanda, was assisting Ed with the investigation, even though he was laid off because of City cutbacks on the police force, couldn’t believe the picture was really Tim Siegel’s, Ed was convinced that the entire Siegel family, Eileen, Julie and Tim, had been lying about being home the whole evening and therefore somehow knew of Toland’s death before the police informed them. Ed believed, since the murder was probably not premeditated, that Julie, who admitted seeing her husband Mark in town but claimed she never went to the motel at all, probably told her brother Tim, who was obviously covering up something, about Toland’s whereabouts. After her husband’s funeral, Julie, much to everyone’s concern, seemed to be slipping deeper and deeper into a dangerously depressed state. Ed decided to place a 24-hour surveillance on the Siegel household and noted a reaction when he mentioned the murder weapon. Julie, fearing Tim might have murdered Mark, removed the gun when she discovered the body and threw it away into a wooded area while she drove hom from the motel.

 

When a strange, handsome adventurer, Tony Harris checked into the Llanview Motel with his Japanese “wife”, Michiko, who was a resident of Vietnam and appeared to have a dubious reputation, and began an investigation of his own into the Toland murder case, the curiosity of the police was aroused. Unknown to everyone, Tony, who was trying to retrieve a valuable smuggled jade piece that he believed Toland had, puzzled over a newspaper clipping about Joe and Viki Lord Riley’s wedding taken from the personal effects of his mother. Tony, while managing to meet Joe in a press lounge, claimed to be a freelance writer, and used Joe to gain access to the paper’s old files, when he learned of Julie, Larry and Dorian, who were all closely linked with Toland at the time of the Wilson murder trial. He polotted to further his secret investigation by getting to meet them all eventually.

 

Susan Barry, whose drinking bouts thoroughly wiped out all the memories of her actions, believed the man she loved, Larry, was having an affair with Viki. What she didn’t realized was because of Larry’s respect of Viki’s personal problems about wanting to keep Joe’s illigetimate child Megan’s fatal inherited heart problem a secret from her husband, Larry had been draw closer to his former sister-in-law. Larry and Viki believed they were the only ones who knew about the reason why Toland came back, which was to gain enough money to buy a doctor’s practice in Central America. However, unknown to them, Toland’s first intention was to get Victor to give him the money for the valuable Randolph document which later fell into Dorian and Matt’s hands. Although Larry was puzzled by Susan’s odd behavior whenever Viki was around, and sincerely wanted to help her overcome the drinking problem, he told his sister Anna Craig that it was not a marrying kind of love.

 

Cathy Craig, who believed her little daughter Megan had completely recovered from the serious heart ailment as the “successful” operation had been completed, resumed her career as a writer.

 

Novitiate Jenny Wolek realized she had allowed the appealing Tim Siegel to mean too much to her personally when she attended Sheila Rafferty’s party and became jealous over Sheila’s attentions towards Tim. However the tables turned when Tim, showing too much attention for Sheila’s taste, assisted Jenny after she slightly sprained her ankle at the annual intern’s picnic. Jenny struggled from within over her desire to serve God, as a missionary nun in the Amazon, versus her growing affections for the young man she knew was in serious trouble over his lies regarding his true whereabouts on the night Toland died. She knew Tim was not at home because she called and spoke to Eileen, his mother, about the time of Toland’s murder.

However, Louise’s greatest fear was that Iris would completely lose Russ when he discovered that instead of accepting her father Mac Cory’s marriage to Rachel, Iris was still engineering a plot to break up that marriage. Indeed, Iris brought Phillip Wainwright from New York to try to put Rachel in a compromising position, but the plan hadn’t worked. Phillip was deeply hurt by the loss of his girlfriend Clarice when she discovered that he was part of this shabby scheme and Phillip had tried to show Iris that Rachel indeed loved Mac, not his money, and it was only Iris’ jealousy that prevented her from seeing that.

Rachel had continued her riding lessons with Phillip, but only on the condition that attorney Barbara Weaver, her good friend, was always with them. Phillip finally set up a meeting with Rachel and Barbara at which time he begged Rachel to get Mac to take her out of Bay City until Iris’ wedding was over, for the sake of her own marriage, but he refused to discuss it furtuer.

Later when Rachel arrived, Iris presented the brooch to her in Louise’s presence insisting she wanted her to have it and wear it to her wedding. However, when Louise left the room, Iris pretended to notice a pearl missing and told Rachel she’d have it immediately fixed and bring it to her. After Rachel left, Iris told Louise Rachel took the brooch with her to her riding lesson. Iris then had the brooch repaired and bribed the jeweler to forget he ever saw her. Rachel, meanwhile, worried about Phillip’s words, asked Mac if they could go away, suggesting their absence at the time of the wedding – Rachel was previously married to Russ – would make things easier for the Matthew family. However, when Mac reminded her the opening of his publishing complex was approaching, she dropped the subject. Mac was confused when Rachel told him Iris kept the brooch to have a missing pearl replaced when Iris told Mac that Rachel had the jewelry. Learning that Phillip was leaving town, Iris realized she had to act. She summoned Mac in tears and told him Phillip repaid the personal loan she made him with a brooch given him by his married lover – the brooch she gave Rachel. Iris insisted she hated telling him this, but it proved Rachel had been unfaithful from the start. She discounted the missing pearl story by displaying the perfect setting and called in Louise who honestly said she saw Rachel accept the brooch from Iris. Mac was devastated. He painfully told Iris she shouldn’t have told him this, saying he had never loved before. Iris was aghast, asking if he didn’t love her mother. Mac brokenly revealed that marriage was arranged and Iris’ mother died before they had a chance to know if they loved each other. Mac then questioned Barbara who staunchly defended Rachel against Iris’ insistence that Barbara was shielding her. Barbara insisted that Rachel would never hurt Mac. Learning Rachel had already left for her riding lesson, Iris dispatched Mac to catch Rachel and Phillip together. When Iris then assured Barbara she had done all of this out of love for her father, Barbara disgustedly replied she didn’t love him of she couldn’t have destroyed his happiness.

 

Rachel was reluctant to wait at Phillip’s without Barbara but he quickly told her the whole truth about Iris’ scheme explain losing Clarice made him realize love was more important than money. However, Mac walked in and finding her there was convinced Iris’ story was true. Rachel, seeing the level of Mac’s insane jealousy, didn’t try to defend herself, rather she asked why he was willing to believe Iris instead of trusting his wife. He replied in light of all this he couldn’t. Crushed, Rachel felt she had lost Mac’s trust forever and went to Ada’s leaving Mac with Iris who continued to turn the knife in his wounds.

 

Rachel later tried to reason with Mac at their home. Despite her assurances she loved him and had done nothing wrong, Mac asked if she was the girl who hit Phillip with the crop. When she admitted this explaining she concealed it for their sake, he insisted this kind of live proved he could never trust her again. Rachel told Mac of Iris’ plot but he called this an ugly lie. He suggested they try to make a marriage out of what was left but Rachel in tears, replied if he couldn’t love her the way she loved him, she didn’t want it – she couldn’t live with that after what they had together.

 

When Clarice, who was dating Neal, learned of the breakup, she confronted Phillip on his involvement. Believing he had no part in what Iris did, she gave Ada the check Iris gave her to keep quiet about the plot. Clarice kept the check with no intention of cashing it. Ada called Russ and Clarice told him the story. Russ didn’t want to believe the woman he loved could be capable of this treachery but Ada appealed to his sense of fairness begging him to find out if Iris was guilty of creating this entire situation. Ada returned home, with hope, to find a note from Rachel saying she had gone away to pull herself together.

 

Alice Frame and her brother-in-law Willis, returned from Oaklahoma where the funeral for her late husband Steven Frame was held at his family home. Alice was grateful the funeral was there as she had learned much about Steven’s past and was grateful that Steven’s sister, Emma, had come to Bay City to help her and Willis through this trying time. Alice was determined to go ahead with a single-parent adoption, but the judge ordered an additional search for recently orphaned Sally Spencer’s relatives be undertaken before the case was heard. Rachel’s son, Jamie, whose father was Steven Frame, had been taking the death of his father very badly, but Emma’s reminiscences helped.

 

Since Steven’s death, Willis had pressed his power play moves againt Vic Hastings for outright authority control at Frame Enterprises. While it was Vic who had the experience of the company, Willis made it clear he was the partner in the firm – a partnership which John Randolph, the firm attorney, and Vic realized Willis would never have had if he were not Steven’s brother. Architect Carol Lamonte, who was furious with her plan to break up her boss Robert’s marriage to Lenore worked, but backfriend in that Robert fired her instead of falling into her arms, had gone to Willis to convince him to give her, not Robert, the contract on the shopping center for which Frame Enterprises was the contractor. When Willis pointed out the shopping center project was almost promised to Robert, Carol told Willis if Robert did the job, Vic would get the credit as he arranged this. If Willis got a new architect, he got the credit. Vic tried to explain to Willis that Carol was too inexperienced to go the job and she was only doing it to hurt Robert, but Willis, annoyed at what he felt was interference by Vic, replied the decision was his alone. Carol, meanwhile, sneaked into Robert’s office and copied the bid file on the supermarket project; her bid therefore came in considerably under Robert’s. Carol continued to play Vic against Willis, but Willis finally told her the company couldn’t afford to take the loss if her lack of experience blew the contract. Insisting she needed the chance, Carol, who was wealthy in her own right, offered to guarantee to underwrite her losses, if any, to make up the difference. With this guarantee, Willis gave Carol the contract.

 

Furious at learning of the contract award, Robert confronted Willis scathingly saying Carol bought the award. Willis again pointed out the decision was his and forbade Robert to discuss it with Vic of would ruin Robert’s company. Carol then visited Neal Johnson, Robert’s associate, flauing her suite of offices at the Bayview Towers, admitting she was out to ruin Robert because of the way he treated her. Carol, unable to be Robert’s carrer guiding force, was apparently trying to be Willis’s career mentor by cutting Vic out of Frame Enterprises. While Vic had always given presentations for the company, Carol pressed Willis to do the shopping center presentation himself as people would otherwise think Vic ran the show. She virtually told Willis, unless he ran all facets of the company, people would think he was a token figurehead. Willis further infuriated Vic by ordering him not to go to Washington D.C. – Vic had helped Lenore secretly leave town and had arranged a job and an apartment for her. – However, to gain him out of town for the presentation, Willis finally told Vic he should go to the Frame D.C. office the following day and he, Willis, would handle the presentation. When Willis refused to back down, Vic said he could announce his resignation at the same time. John persuaded Vic to hold off his resignation for Alice’s sake as well as the company’s and warned Willis to make concessions to keep Vic, because without him there would be a question of leadership in the firm that could ultimately destroy Frame Enterprises. The customers’ confidence laid with Vic. Alice had been reluctant to get involved in the business, but learning of Vic’s threatened resignation, she agreed to try to persuade him to stay. She said Vic should decide the next project. Willis soon realized presentations weren’t his thing, they were Vic’s and he needed him, if only for that. Carol, however, told Willis she had access to virtually everything he needed to make the firm his and cautioned him not to play it safe. Ironically he noted that his girlfriend Angie disapproved of his course of action and without her approval, there was no enjoyment in the work. Willis confided to Angie he had helf inferior all his life – that creepy Willis in his hand-me-down clothes – and he was determined no one would stand in his way of being “someone.” Touched, Angie promised she wouldn’t let anything come between them. Angie’s pleasure at hearing Willis make conciliatory statements to Vic on the phone were a little dimmed when Willis admitted John convinced him he needed Vic. John made Alice, who held control of Frame Enterprises, see that Steve had intended Vic to run the company if he couldn’t, that Willis was assuming authority Steve never intended him to have. Alice acquiesced for the good of the company, but expressed concern that Willis not be humiliated in his necessary eviction from the executive office he had been using.

 

Even though it had been almost 10 years ago since her daughter Jennifer disappeared, Beatrice Gordon, the Corys’ housekeepr, finally agreed to allow Gil McGowan to being a new confidential investigation.

 

Marianne Randolph had met Chris Pearson, a junior at Bay State College, who was applying for a summer job at Frame Enterprises. While Willis seemed unimpressed by Chris, Marianne put in a good word for him and Chris was hired on a temporary basis. Suddenly, Marianne, who had definitely decided against college, had begun to study hard for her exams with Chris’ help, hoping to enter Bay State in the Fall. Chris and Marianne began dating and he took her to a dance at Bay State. However, when they came home late and her father John found them kissing on the sofa, he read Chris out for bringing her home late and for what he assumed happened. Marianne was furious at this overzealous embarrassment. Chris went to John’s office the following day to offer his apology again and to tell John that Marianne needed confidence in herself. Both Pat, John’s wife, and Jim Matthews, his father-in-law, told John he was overreacting, that fathers invariably resented the boys their daughters dated.

 

Gil had agreed to unofficially help Robert in he search for Lenore, but pointed out her letter made it clear she left of her own accord. Neal told John that Robert was not doing any work, he had lost all interest in everything. In fact, he had turned his curring project entirely over to Neal and noted his only friend was his bottle. Helen Moore, Lenore’s mother, tried unsuccessfully to make Robert see he was destroying himself and the company. Barbara had started to refuse to see Vic socially. She explained that she was fed up with his “secret errands” which she felt indicated indifference towards her and she couldn’t tolerate it. She made it clear that she had guessed his errand was Lenore, that they were out of town the same time and since he wouldn’t explain it, she would no longer see him. When he complained about the way she had treated him, Barabra said she was treating Vic the way he was treating her, with indifference, and that Lenore stood between them and always would until he talked to Robert. Vic visited Lenore in Washington. She admitted she still loved Robert but maintained her right to leave. Vic hoped to keep the D.C. office open so he could visit Lenore every few weeks. When Robert, intoxicated, found Carol at Willis’ office, he tried to warn Willis that Carol was a barracuda. Carol’s vindictive verbal assault on Robert shocked even thick skinned Willis.

 

Since Jim Matthews had started to shake the depression he had suffered since the sudden death of his wife Mary, his sister-in-law, Liz, was suddenly very worried that Jim might be susceptible to a conniving woman’s advances. Jim’s son, Russ and Dr. Richard Gavin poo-pooed this. Russ and Dr. Gavin later agreed it was actually Liz’s problem, not Jim’s. Liz assured Dr. Gavin she was not romantically interested in Jim but she was afraid he could be taken advantage of.

Days Of Our Lives

Julie Anderson, badly hurt by the very cold reception she received from her son, David, explained to Doug Williams that David obviously came home for his inheritance from his grandmother, and he was showing his natural father, David Martin’s playboy traits. Indeed, David had asked Marty Hansen – Mickey Horton – to look at the trust papers to see if it could be broken. Julie later told Marty it might be better if David couldn’t get the money immediately, as he would have to rethink his lifestyle, and give Julie time to get a line on Brooke, David’s new fiancee, whom she was convinced was putting on an act. Indeed, seeing Brooke clowning around at Doug’s Place while Doug rehearsed – Julie had long been in love with Doug -, Julie acidly remarked she had “seen Brooke’s performance from the beginning.” Brooke appeared to be crushed and hurried in tears to Phyllis Anderson’s boutique – Phyllis was Bob’s ex-wife – finding Bob there. She told him in tears Julie was sarcastic to her and Bob left to confront Julie. Playing Phyllis’ jealousy of Julie, Brooke told her she wanted Julie to love her as her own mother had died. Phyllis compassionately embraced Brooke, who stood there self-satisfied. Brooke then fed Phyllis’ self-pity, assuring her Julie got pregnant only to hold Bob, and telling Phyllis she would get Bob back one day. Bob castigated his wife Julie for being cold to Brooke and Julie in turn was annoyed that Bob was at Phyllis’ again. Julie then went to Don Craig for reassurance. He told her that he found Brooke dressing up in Julie’s clothes and noted her fascination with them as if she had seen what she wanted and was moving in on it. Learning of David’s half-million inheritance, Don warned Julie not to meet this straight on or she would lose. He suggested playing it Brooke’s way – fight sweetness with sweetness.

 

While out walking, David accidentally discovered The David Martin clinic, which he didn’t know existed. Walking in, he found Susan, who was shocked to see him. He vaguely remembered her as the woman who took care of him, but was amazed to learn she was his father’s wife. Realizing what lied ahead, Susan asked Doug to tell Julie she would accept anything Julie felt she had to tell David. When David finally asked Julie to tell him about his father, David Martin, Julie straightforwardly explained she and David were in love, but following a lover’s quarrel, he got Susan pregnant, and, at Julie’s prompting, married her. Susan then would not give him the divorce she had promised and when Susan’s baby, Dickie died accidentally as a result of David’s inadvertent carelessness, Susan shot and killed David and was later acquitted on a verdict of temporary insanity. David accepted all this, coming away with admiration for his mother. Their relationship seemed to become closer and David began to fell he had come home. Brooke however was horried to find that David was honest in his admiration of Julie and insisted that she was leaving. As David tried to pacify her by reminding her of the money, she tried to alienate his affections for Julie by reminding him that Julie gave him up for adoption. David was disgusted at her attempt, but felt he had to find out why. He questioned his grandfather Tom Horton, who admitted it was he who practically forced 16-year-old Julie to give her son up for adoption. He then added Julie returned and fought to regain him in a bitter custody battle and then married Scott Banning so David would not lose the only father he ever knew. David was deeply affected by this. He felt he owed her so much and admitted he hated Mom for all the wrong reasons, because he never understood. When Julie told Susan she had to tell David the truth, she was horrified when Susan hysterically accused her of throwing her to the wolves. Still sure that Brooke was not what she appeared to be, Julie asked Don to investigate the girl’s background. Brooke, however, decided to try another angle, and went to Julie contritely confessing she tried on her clothes and Don caught her. She said her parents did not have money, she was a scholarship student at the university and put on the act she did as she was afraid Julie would think she wasn’t good enough for her son. She then asked Julie’s forgiveness. Julie, overjoyed with her new friendship with David, accepted Brooke’s apology and even sent Brooke on a shopping spree to Phyllis’ boutique. She then told Don to cancel the investigation, but he replied, “You may be taken in, but not me. I’ll pay for the investigation if I’m wrong.” Julie, sure that he relationship with both Brooke and David was fine, was very happy and content with her life. Even with her new clothes, Brooke still couldn’t keep out of Julie’s closet and trying on Julie’s full length mink told herself, “I’m going to have it all – money, position, clothes, and nobody is going to stand in my way.” David warned Brooke she’d better cover that story about a dead mother before Phyllis started repeating it and Julie picked up on it. So, Brooke cleverly told Bob, with tears in her eyes, she always said her mother was dead, making him feel like a cad for mentioning it.

 

However, returning from an evening out, Julie found Brooke and David making love in Bob’s studio and told David his lack of discretion could embarrass Bob. David cruelly reminded her of his illegitimacy, saying like mother like son. Julie slapped his face. Julie was horried, sure she had lost David again. Brooke later assured her she hadn’t but implied she, Brooke, was the one who can smoothed the troubled waters.

 

Depressed by David and her marriage to a man she didn’t love, Julie drove to Doug’s Place where Neil Curtis, in a moment of honesty, told her Doug still loved her and made reference to her cancelled abortion. Julie confronted Doug who admitted he broke off their marriage plans to stop the abortion. He admitted he loved her, but they both realized there was nothing they could do about it. Bob awoke to find Julie gone and Brooke; on a calculated hunch, called her at Doug’s Place – Brooke had sensed something between Julie and Doug -. Julie rushed home and surprised Brooke by gaily telling Bob she had been having hot chocolate at Doug’s Place.

 

Robert LeClair had returned from Paris and Doug asked him to come back to work as as singer at Doug’s Place as he needed more time for his daughter Hope who would soon be living with him.

 

Marty Hansen told Linda Phillips he felt he could confide in her because she made no demands on him and admitted he was remembering his past – Marty who was Mickey Horton had amnesia following open heart surgery and until recently had no memory of his previous life. – He once had an affair with Linda. He was married to Maggie Hansen who was recovering from surgery to regain use of her paralysed legs -. Linda tried to hide the desperate need she had to know if he remembered their affair as she saw his disgust over the man who hwas Mickey Horton. Linda continued to make herself indispensable to Maggie, and it was to Linda that Maggie admitted she was terrified of Mary’s memory returning as the Horton world was more interesting than the Hansen world. Bill Horton, Maggie’s doctor and Mickey’s brother, accused Linda of undermining Maggie’s spirits by actually proposing the idea of Marty’s memory returning and he ordered her to stay away from Maggie. However, without Linda there to support her, Maggie’s courage faded and her therapy suffered a setback. Marty, seeing Maggie’s helplessness, went to Linda, accusing her of abandoning Maggie. She tearfully told him Bill ordered her to stay away. Marty insisted that Linda was important to Maggie and had to visit her. Mike went to Linda accusing her to using Maggie for her own motives. He was disgusted at his father for being taken in. Marty decided that Maggie’s recovery didn’t need to occur at the hospital and he began arrangements to take Maggie home to the farm and provide therapy for her there. Linda had agreed to accompany them. Feeling Maggie’s health as well as Michael’s relationship with his father were being risked, Tom accused Marty of taking Maggie away from the hospital for his sake, not her’s. Upset to learn Michael wouldn’t visit the farm if Linda was going to be there. Marty confronted the boy who told Marty that Linda was not giving Maggie reassurances, she was increasing her doubts and fears. Marty warned Mike not to make him choose between his wife and his son. Maggie told Marty they couldn’t leave while there was trouble between him and his son. Trish Clayton, with whom Michael lived platonically, pointed out that if indeed Linda had driven a wedge between him and his father, perhaps he had better go to the farm to protect Maggie’s interests. Maggie told Tom she feared that staying in Salem could give her husband another heart attack.

 

Linda tried to win Mike over by admitting she loved Mickey, but not Marty. Mike asked if Linda’s daughter was his half-sister. Linda said no, but she wished she were. Mike wasn’t swayed and still refused to go to the farm. Jim Phillips believed Linda’s reason for cancelling her apartment lease was their possible reconciliation, until he learned she was going to the farm. He was furious at Marty’s appropriated his ex-wife and his daughter, and was sure Marty was becoming Mickey again.

 

Trish missed her mother Jeri badly, but told her step-father not to instigate a search for her. Then Trish asked Doug to help her conduct the search. Brooke, prying this time at Trish’s, had learned Jeri was once arrested for prostitution and dropped this fact on David when she felt he was too attracted to Trish. Trish admitted to mike she was embarrassed that David and Brooke assumed they slept together because they lived together. Mike assured her whay they really were was what was important and they agreed they had a special relationship.

 

Susan apologized to Amanda for her jealousy. Amanda assured Susan she was no threat; Susan’s husband, Dr. Greg Peters was just a friend, and she, Amanda, was still fighting her feelings for her ex-financé, Dr. Neil Curtis; However, at the clinic, Greg professed his love for her, but Amanda said she still loved Neil. She tried to convince him to return to Susan, but Greg said he doubted if the marriage could be or was worth saving. Amanda later admitted to Greg she was susceptible to him, but refused to hurt Susan’s marriage. She told him, however, he had shown her she could be with another man than Neil. Amanda had previously known that Susan’s baby, Ann, was not Greg’s child, but only when she read Greg’s brother Eric’s novel, In My Brother’s Shadow, did she realize that it was Eric who was the baby’s father and she asked Eric, who confirmed this. Greg told Susan he did have deep feelings for Amanda, but she hadn’t reciprocated. Susan, pleased he had opened up to her, told Greg the confrontation with Julie made her realize that she had been a shrew. Greg noted that she seemed different. Amanda told Neil she was upset by his letting himself and his career fall apart with his drinking and gamblind. She continued to insist, however, that she no longer cared about him romantically. But he pointed out she was very obviously concerned. Learning of Neil’s precarious financial situation, Phyllis convinced him to let her advance him a loan. Phyllis, who had been seeing Neil socially, remarked to Amanda that nothing could come of it because of their age difference, among other things. And, when Neil tried to make Phyllis accept him as a serious man in her life, she backed off, afraid to take this sept. When Neil finally paid Greg his overdue salary, Greg accused Neil of being law in his practice, noting more and more of Neil’s patients were coming to him, Greg. Neil told Greg that was what he was being well-paid for.

 

Neil was jubilant at a change in luck in his poker game and arrived at Amanda’s with his winnings to repay a loan she had made him. He was horrified to learn Greg had been trying to locate him. His longtime patient, Jim Warner, had suffered a massive attack and surgery had been delayed as Jim’s wife, Cynthia, had refused to give consent without Neil’s concurrence.

 

Arriving at the hospital with Neil, Amanda was touched at Cynthia’s complete faith in Neil. When Neil later told Cynthia that Jim didn’t make it, she assured him he and the other doctors did all they could. Neil, in great pain, turned to Amanda incredulously stating, “My God, she’s trying to comfort us!” Amanda took Neil home to her apartment and put him to bed. Greg arrived and angrily announced he was filling charges with the medical board against Neil for being out of touch with his answering service. Amanda told Greg he was so self-righteous. If he ever fell, it would be a long way down. Greg then said he loved her but she replied Neil needed her, he couldn’t make her choose. As he insisted he needed her as a woman and continued to vilify Neil as a doctor, Neil walked in and assured Greg he would see Cynthia’s face forever. Greg angrily left and Neil admitted he heard their discussion and pressed Amanda to admit she had made love to Greg once. They argued and she threw him out. He went to Doug’s Place where Greg, still seething, dropped Neil with two quick blows. Neil, smiling, assured Doug he had it coming.

Mike Powers left Singapore for home, unaware that his family was convinced the Mike Powers, who would arrive was an impostor named Robert Wales, an ex-shipmate of Mike’s. As he neared home, Mike’s fantasies about the attitudes of his father Matt and his wife Toni became more relatistic. Mike met a minister on the plane who caused Mike to reexamine his feelings about Toni, which he found in conflict with his feelings for nurse Dawn. Confused, Mike arrived at the Madison, where he was confronted by Alan Stewart, who called Mike a leach and impostor and demanded he leave. As they came to blows, Sgt. Ernie Cadman arrived. When Mike couldn’t remember the whereabouts of Martha Allen the night he and Toni were engaged, Cadman took an angry, bitter Mike in for questioning, and didn’t call Matt for 24 hours. Armed with Mike’s lithium notebook, Matt confronted the “impostor,” and belatedly realized the man was Mike when Mike quoted from the notebook. Matt embraced Mike, who caustically noted that bridging half the world hadn’t helped bridge the gap between them. Mike refused to see Alan who accompanied Matt, but Alan went in anyway to apologie. Mike refused the apology, pointedly demanding to see his wife, alone, in his hotel room the following day. Alan broke the news to Toni, who was glad that Mike was alive, and understood why he left the previous November, but was puzzled about his return. Alan and Matt tried to persuade her from seeing Mike alone, because he was bitter, but Toni maintained Mike had the right since she was his wife. Toni asked Mike why he returned and was stunned when he said he came because of his son. At his request, Toi showed Mike photos of Michael Paul and Mike was moved to tears. Mike asked to see his son, but refused to see Michael under Alan’s roof – ever, and demanded Toni set up regular meetings elsewhere. Hank Iverson, the only person to reserve judgement about the impostor theory, went to see Mike with open arms. Mike felt Hank was the only person who cared about him. Maggie asked Mike how he could leave the previous November, allowing not only Matt, but his sister Greta to grieve. Mike caustically noted Toni didn’t grieve long, but Maggie changed that idea. Afraid Mike might use her living with Alan as an excuse to impede a speedy divorce, Toni moved back with Martha, giving Mike hope she still loved him, as he had come to realize his love for her never died. Joe tried to convince Mike that Toni loved Alan, but Mike didn’t believe it because Joe was Alan’s best friend. Mike went to see his son and Toni early, but they were gone to visit Alan.

Monticello’s Crime Commission, appointed to investigate the organized underworld activities of their beleaguered city, had been headed by the highly respected lawyer Mike Karr for over a year with the complete cooperation of Police Chief Bill Marceau and his trusted assistant, Lt. Luke Chandler. When the police finally contacted a possible secret witness, Ernie Casper, someone who had been high enough up in the ranks of the organization to name the names of all the important underworld bosses, an all out campaign of scrict security had to prevail to protect the life of his valuable witness. Mike, selected as Casper’s contact, met with him in a sleazy waterfront bar called Pier 19 and arranged to comply with Casper’s demands of no police protection and guaranteed him a large sum of money and a new identity in a foreign country for his valuable information. As good faith, Mike got Casper to agree to give the police the name of te mob’s informant placed in Police Headquarters, in return for $5.000. Just as Mike arrived at Pier 19, expecting to learn the informant’s name, he discovered Casper had been killed! Bill, Luke and Mike were mystified and chagrined as ti how their well-guarded secret could have poissibly leaked out resulting in the mob’s removal of their key witness before they could gain any useful information. The whole story leaked to the newspaper, presumable through the spy at Police Headquarters, further galled Bill and succeeded in frightening all other possible Crime Hearing witnesses underground. Johnny Dallas, once a part of the dyndicate as an undercover agent for the Crime Commission, had settled down into a peaceful life of running his popular New Moon Café and looking forward to the arrival of Laurie and his first child soon to be born after Laurie’s tragic and upsetting miscarriage. John found himself reluctantly involved again with crime when Gerald Kincaid, the mob’s silent partner in the New Moon, threatened Laurie’s life if John didn’t comply and “bug” his father-in-law’s private study phone so the mob could learn the name of the Crime Commission’s secret witness, who threatened the security of the anonymity of the mob’s key leaders. John, desperate to protect his vulnerable wife, complied, but almost immediately removed the bug. When Casper was found dead, John believed himself responsible but unknown to him, the bug hadn’t even been activated and it was the barman at Pier 19 who had informed Kincaid and who was really responsible for Casper’s death. Kincaid, cleverly seizing the opportunity to keep John entangled, gave John the complete ownership of the New Moon as his promised payment for services will rendered. At a follow-up meeting in Mike’s private study at home, Bill made a startling discovery that Mike’s phone might have been tampered with but they couldn’t be absolutely certain. Nancy Karr, learning of Mike’s activites, was alarmed over her husband’s dangerous involvement with hoodlums again and the possible threat to her home and family. Nancy was further concerned when Laurie, who had already confided in her mother about John’s strange over-protective attitude about her safety, and John appeared to be developing a rift in their heretofore happy marriage. At a confidential Crime Commission meeting between Luke, Mike and Brandy Henderson, who is the Assistant D.A. and liaison between the city’s law enforcement agencies and the Crime Commission, Luke told of the futile secret investigation that Bill had conducted to expose the spy at Police Headquarters, and postulated the spy had to be in the only other possible office that had access to confidential matters – Brandy’s office!

 

Adam Drake found himself further drawn into helping the lovely and deeply troubled Serena Farady. Having only recently resumed his relationship with Brandy, Adam assured Brandy that Serena was only a friend who needed help, nothing more. Adam, reminding Brandy that their resumed relationship was to remain a casual one, discovered that Brandy had difficulty keeping her deep regards for Adam in check. Serena, showing Adam her lovely oil portrait slashed to an almost unrecognizable state, and a second lipsticked death threat on her living room mirror, begged Adam’s help. Serena was convinced her ex-husband, Mark was responsible for all the vandalism and Adam was half inclined to believe her, because Mark did have a duplicate key to her apartment. Mark stoutly denied any part or any knowledge of there stange happenings and warned Adam that Serena was just using him. Adam was further upset when Mark seemed to know about Adam’s weekend plans to spend time with little Timmy, something he couldn’t have possibly been told. Although Adam felt rather coerced into following up on Serena’s unsanctioned promises to her son Timmy, he was understandably concerned when Timmy, awakened from a nightmare told of a dark-haired woman who had come to his private boarding school wanting to kill him. Serena, who appeared to have a restrained, subdued and vulnerable character, was actually, unknown to everyone – even to herself suffering from the clinical malady of a dual personality. The Josie side was brash, sexually aggressive and domineering and presented an actual threat to Serena and Timmy’s safety. Serena rationalized her strange behavior as fatigue or memory lapses, which had plagued her sporadically since her transient and unstable childhood. While acting under the influence of the Josie personality, she became friendly with Kincaid, who believed he had uncovered blackmail material against John, because John and Josie were loves. Kincaid was annoyed when he called a phone number, secretly taken off an I.D. on Josie’s keyring, only to have a rather indignant Serena tell him she didn’t know who he was. After a delightful weekend together, Adam, preparing to drive home, realized a small gift had been left in his car and returned unexpectedly to Serena’s apartment. Adam, finding the front door unlocked, and a terrified Timmy, who had sought refuge by huddling behind his bedroom door, hysterically screaming for his mother to save him from the threatening dark-haired lady who had suddenly appeared, rushed to the boy’s rescue. Josie, who hid in the closet as Adam entered, managed to give Adam the slip by getting away in the elevator before he had a chance to catch her.

General Hospital

Troubled times for the 7th Floor and General Hospital when Dr. Steve Hardy and Dr. Joel Stratton were forced to stand by and watch their medical careers be placed in jeopardy while controversy raged over who was entitled to research the various patient complaint files, including the disputed Pizzara case involving a malpractice law suite. While Mr. Thurston, Administrative Head of the hospital, and his assistant, Margaret Colson, who secretly bore a deep-rooted grudge against Joel, her former lover, had the files, Steve and Joel were completely unable to defend themselves against the charges. Steve, insisting he had complete confidence in Joel as a cardiac surgeon, was still worried about the reputation of the hospital because of his fiancée Kira Faulkner’s public announcement of the unsubstantiated charges brought against the hospital, which she had publicized on her popular newscast program. Steve’s personal feelings for Kira had been affected by her actions because he believed she should have been helping him and what obviously was a most important element in his life – General Hospital – and, instead, was defending her right to be an investigative reporter and expose the truth to the community no matter what the consequences. Kira believed their was no point in having an engagement if they couldn’t even discuss their future wedding date and returned the lovely diamond engagement ring to Steve. When Kira finally obtained the needed legal papers to gain accesse to the transcript and files, Thurston refused at first, threatening a long court battle, but Steve effectively fought for Kira’s legal rights, claiming the longer the hospital refused to allow anyone to see them, the more it appeared to the public that the hospital, was trying to cover up and Thurston relinquished the controversial records to Kira. Later, at the T.V. station, Steve asked a favor from Kira to allow Joel and him to have the files so that they might review them and to thus delay her public announcement. At some personal risk to her career and the station’s “scoop,” she agreed to let Steve have the records.

 

Joel, who had lost all will to fight the malpractice suit, appeared to have lost his confidence in his medical judgements as well, and refused to operate or give his opinions on medical consultations. Steve, pleased with Kira’s cooperation about allowing them a few days to examine the transcripts, was upset over Joe’s defeatist attitude and wondered about Joel’s innocence. When Margaret permitted Joel to see some original patient files, he was stunned to read about his questionable diagnosis and procedures in handling the case. Even though Joel couldn’t truthfully remember the former patient clearly, he was forced to realize he might have been negligent in the handling of the patient’s cardiac procedures.

 

Audrey Hobart, whose life had been a series of battles with her drunken husband the former Head of the Cardiac Unit, Jim, had been driving to seek help and guidance from the local AL-ANON Group. When Jim mistakenly assumed Audrey’s evening meetings with lawyer Lee Baldwin, a reformed alcoholic, were come kind of a tryst, she confessed her fears over his drinking and all about AL-ANON. Jim, hurt and belligerent, insisted he was not an alcoholic and refused to allow Audrey to go to any more meetings. When Jim cut his hand in a drunken encounter at Johnny’s Bar, the barman took him to Joel and the Free Clinic where Steve, who happened to be there discussing the malpractice suit with Joel, insisted on driving Jim home. Steve, understanding Audrey’s concern for her unemployed husband, suggested Jim use his expert medical knowledge to act as one of the impartial examiners of the complaint files against Joel, who ironically as the man who replaced Jim as the head cardiac surgeon.

 

When signs of serious heart complications were added to the already dangerously ill Joanne Dawson’s critical kidney damage, brought on by the complications of a strep infection, her worried mother Jane turned to her friends for emotional support. Jane, believing Joanne would soon recover and making plans to being a more meaningful life together with her cheerful, sweet little daughter, as her divorce from Howie, was behind her, was completely destroyed when Joanne’s little heart just couldn’t function any longer and the child died. Jane shocked her concerned friends when she bitterly lashed out at Howie for having a secret vasectomy which prevented her from bearing more children.

Diana Taylor, who remained beside the grieving mother, realized how much she would lose if her only daughter, Martha, had been in Joanne’s place. Diana and Dr. Peter Taylor, who was secretly the father of Augusta’s unborn child, had just purchased a lovely new home and were finally a happy family unit. Peter consistently refused to discuss Diana’s desire about adopting another child. After the death of little Joanne, Diana believed Peter should be the one to go to the women’s prison and tell Augusta about Jane’s loss because of Augusta’s close friendship with Jane. Since Peter was the one that Augusta confessed to and had received mail from her, everyone believed that the sympathetic psychiatrist was just a close friend of the otherwise friendless confessed killer of Dr. Phil Brewer. Jessie Brewer, formerly married to Phil, recalled a conversation where he openly inferred Peter and Augusta were much closer than just good friends. Jessie, who was trying to understand the reasons why Phil became such a different person just before his murder, regretted mentioning Phil’s hostile innuendos to Peter. Peter’s intended arrival was noticed by prison trustee and cellmate Billie Dutton as being more than just a casual visit from a friend.

 

Dr. Lesley Williams, deeply hurt and bewildered over Joel’s sudden coolness towards her, reflected over her life and concluded she could never have a lasting relationship with any man. Unknown to anyone, Joel feared the recent discovery of heart trouble might mean the same serious inherited problems that claimed the life of his brother Owen and he didn’t want Lesley to know. Working daily in the Free Medical Clinic, which was supported by the wealthy Cameron Faulkner, Lesley treated a timid young man named Felix Buchanan for peptic ulcers which were aggravated by emotional stress and a poor diet. Felix, an unemployed veterinary assistant, was fearful of hospital, but promised to follow all Lesley’s medical instructions. Lesley, who had had to change her phone number recently because of numerous anonymous crank calls from a muffled voice claiming he loved her and wanted to protect her from the dirty world, was unaware that Felix not only had been the one calling her, but was also keeping her little English style cottage under surveillance as well. Cameron told Kira, his ex-wife, of his plans to propose marriage to Lesley. Lesley, not wanting to be alone forever and highly impressed with Cam’s desire to have more children, was undecided about her answer to Cam’s proposal.

Dr. Ed Bauer, recovering from surgery following gun shot wonds inflicted by his emotionally disturbed brother-in-law, Ken Norris, told his wife Holly that Dr. Steve Jackson was not eager to do a resection of the neurona in Ed’s arm because while there was a 50 percent chance of total cure, there was also a 50 percent chance of total permanent paralysis. Ed felt, however, as a neurosurgeon, that his present partial paralysis was as hopeless as total. Recovered enough to undergo electromyography, Ed’s test results showed scar tissue indeed blocking the nerve, requiring cutting and resuturing. Ed was called upon to give a deposition to the police in which he explained that Ken was not responsible for what happened and to put him on trial would be as senseless as the shooting. On the basis of Ed’s statement and his personal plea for Ken, the criminal charges against him had been dropped and he was entered into a sanitarium for treatment.

 

Barbara Thorpe, Holly’s mother, was overjoyed when her son Andrew called from Paris and agreed to come home upon receipt of money that Adam, Barbara’s husband, would send him.

When he arrived, he apologized to her for not being there when she was going through the enormous problems with Ken. Indeed, upon his first visit with the family to Ken in the state hospital, Andrew was badly upset and felt it was indeed hopeless. Andrew admitted to the family he had literary aspirations and when Barbara offered him the guest house, he agreed to stay there under the condition he would refurbish it. Holly pointed out he could stay and write there as well as anywhere, but Andrew replied that while he was staying for the present, he was not sure he could write there. Andrew immediately sensed Holly was under pressure and brushed off her assurances it was Ed’s arm injury, pointing out he had always known when she was concealing something. Under Andrew’s pressure and her own need to share the burden, Holly told her brother about her disastrous affair with Roger Thorpe a few years ago, her subsequent entrapment of Ed into marriage, the problems of her affair with Roger when he returned to town. Holly explained the baby was Roger’s, she and Ed were sleeping in separate rooms when it was conceived and she was terrified that Ed would realize this when the child he had so eagerly awaiting was born a month too early. She admitted her feelings for Roger were ambivalent, she wouldn’t have made love to him if she didn’t love him, but Ed was her concern. Her guilt had been increased with Ed’s recent firm declaration of love and hope in their marriage. Roger, who was in love with Peggy Fletcher, continued to assure Holly everyone would merely think the baby was prematrure. Andrew assured Holly she was no longer alone in this – she had him.

 

Young Billy Fletcher called Roger thanking him for attending his school play, explaining his mother, Peggy, saw Roger and was not mad – Peggy and Roger dated seriously until Roger inadvertently endangered Peggy and Billy’s lives when he became involved with a loan shark. – Roger later told Peggy he attended the play for himself, not to upset her. She answered she realized this and felt Billy had a right to his own friend. Peggy later told Leslie she was afraid to take another chance with Roger, even though she really wanted to, and later admitted to Ed that she was drawn to Roger, almost against her will. Holly became quiet upset when Ed casually mentioned this conversation with Peggy. And, despite her desire to forget the past, Holly, upon learning Roger might go to Mexico on a business venture with a friend, begged him not to go. Roger later told his father, Adam, he was not leaving, but the reason was his hope he could somehow reconcile with Peggy.

One Life To Live

The shocking discovery of police fugitive Dr. Mark Toland’s body – shot to death by a .32 caliber gun after a struggle, sometime between 9 o’clock and 10 o’clock p.m. – in the nearby parking lot of the Llanview Motel had rocked the peaceful existence of the inhabitants of the town. As the public clamors for more information from the local newpspaer, The Banner, owned and operated by the powerful Victor Lord, Police Lt. Ed Hall, investigating the Toland murder, had clamped the lid down tight on all information regarding the case. Ed received his first break when the motel’s desk clerk, Charley Woods, recognized Victor’s photo in the paper as one of Toland’s late night visitors. Since Ed was already suspicious of Victor, because of the unique, expensive umbrella found in Toland’s room – the other clue was a valuable jade medaillion -, he interrogated Chapin, Victor’s trusted man-servant, who denied Victor’s ownership of the umbrella. Ed, confronting Victor with the facts, learned that Victor received a call from Toland that night, but claimed he never entered Toland’s room because he was not in his room when Victor knocked. Further denying possible ownership of the umbrella, Victor claimed he couldn’t have left it inside the motel room. Victor recognized the umbrella as one he loaned to Dorian Cramer, and later confronted her in front of Matt McAllister, Victor’s trusted protégé, about it and learned that Matt had “borrowed” it because of the stormy weather when he went to Toland’s room to supposedly ask Toland to leave Dorian alone, but claimed Toland was absent whe he arrived. Victor, who was in love with Dorian felt betrayed by Dorian for not revealing her contact with Toland and ordered Matt to go to directly to the police and tell them his story, which he did, byt Ed was no more taken in by Matt’s story than anyone else’s. Eventually Dorian was able to regain Victor’s confidence and she learned of his love for her while it appeared that Matt had permantely lost favor with Victor. Matt bitterly threatened Dorian with exposure of all her devious plans to entrap Victor, and their plot to cover up knowledge of the valuable Randolph documents revealing the existence of Victor’s long lost illegitimate son if she tried to cut him out and got it alone. While Dorian attempted to gain the forgiveness Matt sought from Victor, she learned that Victor felt Matt had not only disappointed him personally, but professionally as well. Victor realized he was not only using Matt as an inadequate substitute for the son he longed to have to carry on Victor’s family name forcefully.

 

Ed’s second big lead was the police artist’s portrait, taken from the description of the desk clerk, of Toland’s second vistor that night. Although Vinnie Wolek, against the wishes of his wife Wanda, was assisting Ed with the investigation, even though he was laid off because of City cutbacks on the police force, couldn’t believe the picture was really Tim Siegel’s, Ed was convinced that the entire Siegel family, Eileen, Julie and Tim, had been lying about being home the whole evening and therefore somehow knew of Toland’s death before the police informed them. Ed believed, since the murder was probably not premeditated, that Julie, who admitted seeing her husband Mark in town but claimed she never went to the motel at all, probably told her brother Tim, who was obviously covering up something, about Toland’s whereabouts. After her husband’s funeral, Julie, much to everyone’s concern, seemed to be slipping deeper and deeper into a dangerously depressed state. Ed decided to place a 24-hour surveillance on the Siegel household and noted a reaction when he mentioned the murder weapon. Julie, fearing Tim might have murdered Mark, removed the gun when she discovered the body and threw it away into a wooded area while she drove hom from the motel.

 

When a strange, handsome adventurer, Tony Harris checked into the Llanview Motel with his Japanese “wife”, Michiko, who was a resident of Vietnam and appeared to have a dubious reputation, and began an investigation of his own into the Toland murder case, the curiosity of the police was aroused. Unknown to everyone, Tony, who was trying to retrieve a valuable smuggled jade piece that he believed Toland had, puzzled over a newspaper clipping about Joe and Viki Lord Riley’s wedding taken from the personal effects of his mother. Tony, while managing to meet Joe in a press lounge, claimed to be a freelance writer, and used Joe to gain access to the paper’s old files, when he learned of Julie, Larry and Dorian, who were all closely linked with Toland at the time of the Wilson murder trial. He polotted to further his secret investigation by getting to meet them all eventually.

 

Susan Barry, whose drinking bouts thoroughly wiped out all the memories of her actions, believed the man she loved, Larry, was having an affair with Viki. What she didn’t realized was because of Larry’s respect of Viki’s personal problems about wanting to keep Joe’s illigetimate child Megan’s fatal inherited heart problem a secret from her husband, Larry had been draw closer to his former sister-in-law. Larry and Viki believed they were the only ones who knew about the reason why Toland came back, which was to gain enough money to buy a doctor’s practice in Central America. However, unknown to them, Toland’s first intention was to get Victor to give him the money for the valuable Randolph document which later fell into Dorian and Matt’s hands. Although Larry was puzzled by Susan’s odd behavior whenever Viki was around, and sincerely wanted to help her overcome the drinking problem, he told his sister Anna Craig that it was not a marrying kind of love.

 

Cathy Craig, who believed her little daughter Megan had completely recovered from the serious heart ailment as the “successful” operation had been completed, resumed her career as a writer.

 

Novitiate Jenny Wolek realized she had allowed the appealing Tim Siegel to mean too much to her personally when she attended Sheila Rafferty’s party and became jealous over Sheila’s attentions towards Tim. However the tables turned when Tim, showing too much attention for Sheila’s taste, assisted Jenny after she slightly sprained her ankle at the annual intern’s picnic. Jenny struggled from within over her desire to serve God, as a missionary nun in the Amazon, versus her growing affections for the young man she knew was in serious trouble over his lies regarding his true whereabouts on the night Toland died. She knew Tim was not at home because she called and spoke to Eileen, his mother, about the time of Toland’s murder.

After Tony’s funeral, Jo answered to door to find a young girl who expressed her sympathy and admiration for Tony, but didn’t give her name – it was Robin.

 

Scott Phillip was trying to find out just owh much financial trouble they were in when Jennifer broke the news her father was coming for a visit. She asked that even though Scott disliked Pace, he tried to get along with him for her sake as this was the first time Pace had attempted to be a father. Mr. Pace said he would forgive Scott, but Scott said he needed no forgiveness, that Mr. Pace was the one who had always tried to buy Jennifer’s affections. Then he offered to set Scott up in practice in Maryland and buy them a house, but Scott refused. Scott visited Kathy when he was out walking after Tony’s funeral, and said Eric, his step-ston, could come home when school was over, but Kathy said to let him stay. When Scott got home, Jennifer said he wouldn’t leave town because of Kathy. He admitted he loved Kathy, didn’t love Jennifer and never had. Trying to get away from the things Scott was saying, Jennifer, in hysterics, tripped and smashed through a sliding glass door. At the hospital, Mr. Pace overheard Scott telling the unconscious Jennifer he didn’t mean for this to happen. Mr. Pace told John Wyatt and Eunice he blamed Scott for the “accident” and everything that had happened to his daughter. After blood transfusions, stitches and minor facial cuts – the possibility of scarring not minor to Jennifer – the threat of a ruptured spleen became evident, and Dr. Josephson prepared to operate to save Jennifer’s life, engendering grave danger for the baby she was carrying.

Eve Lawrence returned to her job at Paisley’s and she and Ned affected a businesslike demeanor, which neither was comfortable with. Eve had been in the hospital, the innocent victim of the person trying to kill her daughter, Heather Kane. Regaining consciousness, hse had mistaken Ned for Julian Cannell, and told him she had never loved Ned, devastating him, because Eve was the first woman he had ever loved. Victoria, ned’s sister, newly returned from Europe, got the story from Ned and told him that he, not Eve, made a fool out of him. With new-won courage Ned went to Eve’s office to try to fathom her feelings about him. Afraid of being hurt and humiliated further, Eve put on a brave front about continuing their successful business relationship and letting the past be the past. Ned solemnly agreed, and left, the conversation giving neither what they really wanted – a reconciliation. Eve, disconcerted, that night drank too much and allowed Tom Conway to make advances, but Heather dropped by, spoiling the mood.

 

Carrie Wheeler, cub reporter on the Register, confided to her mother in Wilkes Barre that she really cared for Greg Mercer, her rival at the paper. Greg, meanwhile, showed real jealousy towards Jill Farmer and Tom Conway. Jill told Greg she wanted only friendship, but he refused to believe that, begging her to love and make love to him at the Kane cabin. Gently, Jill acknowledged his feelings but told him she didn’t love him, or anyone, because it was too soon after Mitch’s death. When Carrie found Greg put her by-line on a story he wrote for her because she had to go to her mother, she thanked him. He, in turn, responded to her, revealing the incident with Jill. Carey warned Greg not to let his self-esteem plummet because he was really a great guy. Greg took her to inner, but they ended up at her apartment where she offered her honor; he honored her offer. Later, Carrie received a phone call – her mother died. Greg pulled her together and got her to the airport, where he agreed to accompany her home. Upon arriving in Wilkes Barre, Carrie lashed out at her father, Jack, saying he had something to celebrate because her mother was dead, then refused to have anything to do with him. Carrie was bitter because her mother spent her last years paralyzed after a car accident. Jack had been drinking, but was never charged. When Greg tried to help, Jack told him it was non of his business.

 

Dorothy Conrad, Jerry Kane’s deranged ex-wife, stood outside the Kane apartment and shot at Heather, who bent over at that moment. Sure her mission was accomplished, Dorothy left. Stan and Terri Kurtz arrived for dinner as the shot was fired. They called Lt. Price, who became more suspicious of Jerry who was detained by emergency surgery, and couldn’t account for every moment before he fot home. Radio and T.V. coverage were extensive and Dorothy was angry because she failed again. Julian was late getting ome to Kate after covering the story with Greg and driving Eve home. Kate was furious when she learned where he had been, accusing him of not only neglecting her for Eve, but of neglecting his responsibility as an editor for sitting on the story all the time and then being scooped. As she ranted, Julian told her to shut up. Lt. Price ordered Jerry to stay in town. When Price received the ballistics report on the bullet fired at Heather, and found it was from the same gun that killed Jerry’s girlfriend Wendy in New York a few years ago, he called Jerry and Heather in for questioning, revealing to Heather for the first time that Jerry was married before. When the shock wore off, Heather backed Jerry, who recalled Dorothy’s brother, Ralph, threatened any woman who came near him. Price found Ralph had an iron-clad alibi for the night of the shooting, but Jerry refused to believe it and left, against Price’s orders, to find Ralph. The following morning’s paper carried a factual story about Jerry’s disappearance, further infuriating Kate because she wanted more sensatonalisme. Julian refused to damange Jerry’s reputation through innuendo and another heated argument ensued. Eve visited Julian to find out if he knew Jerry’s whereabouts. He didn’. He picked up Kate up at Dr. Porter’s and Kate warned him there was such a thing as emotionally induced miscarriage. Jerry found Ralph in Florida – paralysed from the waist down. Ralph told Jerry that the divorce put Dorothy in a mental hospital. Jerry was devastated, assuring Ralph he sincerely felt the divorce was best for all concerned. Back in Somerset, Jerry told Stan and Terri about Dorothy, and the name rang a bell. They checked personnel files and found Dorothy was working at the hospital until the day Jerry came on staff.

 

Dorothy, meanwhile, dressed as a nurse, and using the excuse Stan sent her, gained access to the Kane apartment which Jill had just left with Heather’s keys to pick yp some groceries. Dorothy pulld her gun and told Heather she had to die so Jery would come back to her. Heather played for time, learning Dorothy killed Wendy. Jerry realized Dorothy could be stalking Heather. Dorothy heard a key in the lock and hid, warning Heather not to scream of she was dead. Tom and Jill entered. After assessing the situation, Tom stalled for time. Jerry called to check on Heather, who called him Stan. He bolted out, leaving Terri to call the police. Jerry entered the apartment through the patio door as Dorothy was about to kill Heather. He asked for the gun, but Dorothy refused, talking about their past life. Saying they couldn’t be happy until Heather was dead, Dorothy shot and Jerry lunged, taking the bullet in the shoulder. Tom was able to grab the gun. Ellen and Eve rushed in – they had been coming for a visit -, followed by Lt. Price. Dorothy was taken away.

 

Julian got a tip at gome and, unable to find Greg, left an angry Kate to cover the story himself. At the Kane apartment, he saw Eve was about to fall apart. He took her home where she had four brandies in short order. When he asked, she told him she had to drink to get through the tense days at Paisley’s. He refused her offer to stay the night, and when he left, she collapsed into tears of loneliness. Jerry and Heather claimed Muffin and moved back to the cabin. When Kate found out Julien took Eve home, her jealousy erupted again. Julian, sick of her outbursts about Eve, told Kate he was Eve’s friend and would help her again. Kate was disconsolate.

 

The Young And The Restless

Jill Foster, who married Brock Reynolds, in a self-performed ceremony that was still unconsummated, was told of the coming divorce of Brock’s mother, Kay, and Phillip Chancellor. Jill took Brock to the restaurant where Phillip used to take her, but they ran into Phillip with Lorie Brooks. When Jill fainted at home, Brock called Dr. Mark Henderson, who told Jill she was pregnant and she asked that he told no one. When Jill and Phillip met the following day, they found they were still in love and Jill told him about the baby, a result of the one time they made love. Since she was not breaking up Phillip’s marriage, she consented to marry him when his divorce was final. Phillip asked his lawyer for the fastest possible divorce and was told he could get it in 24 hours in the Dominican Republic if Kay consented. When Phillip told Lorie that their relationship had ended and he was leaving the country for a few days, Lorie flew into a rage saying he had been her whole life for several months and she put aside her book and had nothing but bills. He picked up the bills on his way out saying he would see to them. Kay confessed to Brock that she knew Phillip was in love with Jill and Brock confessed that he knew also, and married Jill to help her because he cared for Jill. Kay said Phillip ahd to come back to her because she had given up everything and prayed so hard, but Brock said this might be God’s will for someone else. After Brock left, Kay chastised God, and ended up drinking to soothe her nerves. When Phillip arrived after calling, she found God wouldn’t give her a second chance, and, so, signed the papers. When Brock awoke her from a drunken stupor, she refused to believe Phillip had already been there and that she had signed the papers. Kay tried to reach Phillip, to no avail; after his lawyer warned him. Kay finally reached the lawyer in the Dominican Republic, but it was too late and she swore that if she couldn’t have Phillip – no one would. She met his plane and insisted on talking to him. Once in the car, Phillip told Kay he couldn’t give her a second chance as the divorce was already final. When he requested she stop the car, Kay accelerated. A witness said she never tried to manuever the curve, but drove directly off the cliff!

 

Jill told her family she wasn’t legally married to Brock, and would marry Phillip the following day, when Snapper, her intern brother, called and revealed Phillip was critically injured. Jill rused to the hospital to be with Phillip and insisted they be married immediately by the hospital chaplain. Snapped told the family they had little hope that Phillip would recover, while Jill was freshening up for the ceremony. She asked Brock about Kay and was told Kay was in very bad shape. After the ceremony, Phillip told Jill that he wanted her mother to quit her job at the factory and her parents were to start making plans for the new house he would buy them. He also asked Jill, her mother, and father, to go out to celebrate their marriage. Jill was in very good spirits talking about the future. Her parents agreed that things should continue as the were – until Phillip was better. After a while, Jill felt a compulsion to be with Phillip. Kay came out of her coma wondering where Phillip was and Brock explained that Phillip couldn’t come. Snapper, while checking Kay’s vital signs and finding them better, was summoned by a nurse. When Jill arrived at the hospital, Snapper tried to get her to sit down so he could talk to her, but she rushed to Phillip’s room and found the bed empty. Snapped held her as she screamed she loved Phillip. Jill went to the Chancellor house and ordered the maid to dispose of all Kay’s things, and, still in shock, arranged the funeral, a private service with closed casket, followed by burial on the estate. No knowing how to refuse, Snapper permitted Brock to attend. Greg was anxious to file for a surviving spouse’s award for Jill, because she was spending money for the funeral she was not legally entitled to spend. Meanwhile, alone in the hospital, Kay groped her way to what was Phillip’s room, pouring out her sorrow over the accident to the back of a sleeping form. Horrified to discover the man wasn’t Phillip, Kay stumbled out. Seeing a newspaper with Phillip’s name and picture, Kay discovered his death, but, suspicious of the closed casket, sneaked out of the hospital to the funeral. Kay tried to open the casket, but was led away by Brock who convinced her Phillip was dead. Kay wailed it should have been she, a sentiment echoed by an embittered Jill.

 

Leslie Elliot was nervous as she rehearsed for the upcoming concert. Her husband, Brad, told her to admit her anxiety and face it. The whole Brooks family, except for Lorie who had an attack – due to a refusal to share the limelight, according to Mark Henderson – attended the concert which was a huge success. Jennifer Brooks finally realized the devastation of her intent to one day leave Stuart and marry Bruce Henderson when Peggy refused a call for her from Bruce and refused to be rational. Jennifer called Leslie, Chris and Lorie together and told them she would remain with Stuart because she could never be happy with Bruce after causing them all such pain. Peggy couldn’t forgive Jennifer, though, saying if Jen stayed, she went. Meanwhile, Regina Henderson, searching for the other woman in Bruce’s life, was convinced it was Jen and went to Stuart, trying to confirme her suspicions. Stuart was adamant it couldn’t be Jen until Regina asked if Jen had changed lately. His silence was her proof and Regina left.

 

Lorie called her agent, Jed Allen, giving him as much of the manuscript as she had done, asking him to find a published. Jed asked if Leslie knew about this book, since it was a reflection on her life and Lorie said she knew – but didn’t mention that Leslie was upset by it. After Phillip’s death, it was a devastated Lorie who persuaded her father Stuart to keep Jill’s name out of the papers.

 

Oh this is getting good, so Lorie was involved up until Phillips death omg and i never knew that until reading this. I wonder if there is any confrontations between Lorie and jill or lorie and Katherine.

 

We all know this beefed up the stsrt of jill and Katherine, but i wonder if lorie had anymore involvement after his death.

Not much from what I think (I only browsed quickly the upcoming summaries). Lorie will be in debts as Phillip was supposed to pay her bills but he died before he could. Lorie will move to the novel storyline completely I think.

Oh to see all those June 75 Y&R episodes! I actually didn’t realize how intense everything with Phillips death was, and Jill ordering Katherines things out of the house sound so amazing! I also wish they still had Lories involvement In the story and see her go up against Katherine and Jill, but I’m glad they had her acknowledged of Phillips death!

Jill/Katherine/Phillip must have been almost the entire show in June. I can only imagine seeing those episodes. They must have been on almost every day or possibly every day. As I was reading I thought, oh June will end with them going over the cliff, but it just kept going.

 

Agree the story sounds intense. Jill coming in to Phillip's hospital room and seeing an empty bed, how sad, I can see why long time viewers were always on Jill's side, Bell certainly made her suffer. Plus having Lorie attached to the story to the end. I so wish Jill and Lorie had connected more about Phillip's death. I do wonder if there were any scenes between them.

Thats the same thing i have been wondering, but if they didn't i assume they just let Lorie branch off into her own orbit like she basically always was.

 

Plus the next year would be the arrival of Lorie worst nightmare vanessa prentiss i would love to see how scary Vanessa looked when she first arrived.

It seems by the August episode that is online, that Lorie was back more in Leslie's orbit while Jill was battling Kay in court. It would have been great if Lorie was supportive of Jill's fight against Kay. Surely everyone in town had heard that Kay drove Phillip off a cliff. If Lorie doesn't at least console Jill or have it out with Kay, then it will baffle me. Lorie, even then, sounds like she wears her emotions on her sleeve. She seems quite fragile in those days. It would be almost neccessary to have her lash out at Kay over Phillip's death, at least once. Then move on, but it seems that isn't going to happen. 

 

I assume, by the sounds of it, that the most we get is a scene with Brock and Lorie. Bell seemed determine to keep Kay and Lorie from having any real scenes together. Jill and Lorie also seem to have had few scenes over the years, despite the connection to Phillip and Stuart.

Derek was first introduced in 1976 but the story was scrapped after a couple months. Then Joe LaDue came on 77 - 81, but Jill had exited that triangle in early 1980. By May 80 she was already working at Jabot. Derek last appeared in 1984 at Victor and Nikki's wedding, though very briefly and I am not sure he was ever mentioned again, other than Kay referring to Thurston as one of her married names. Not sure why they never argued about him, would have been cool to have his name brought up in their fights. Bell seemed to just act sometimes like certain character

 

 

Derek Thurston just doesn’t seem worth the time that Katherine & Jill would fight over and the story eventually delved into the more gothic side of things between Katherine paying Derek off to leave Jill to come live with & marry her and then the arrival of crazy Suzanne and all that madness. I get confused by the timeline but Jill had the time snag & marry Stuart away from Liz before her and Derek married right as Katherine came back from the dead. In addition to the Felipe story Derek cheated on Katherine  with his secretary Judy. Given Derek had done both wrong, it was probably for the best to make him a foot note in their history.

Yea Kay and Lorie never really did get to have great significant scenes and they were both equally popular on the same platform, come to think of it kay never really interacted with Lorie or leslie or Peggy or Chris who I forget sometimes but we all know they know each other lol.F

Does anyone know Derek's interactions with eve were about? I've read they had a few scenes in 1980 when victor arrived, also jill and Eve being roommates that just sounds and looks funny to imagine them.
