05/11/2007 Jenny Is Ready To Leave The Hospital



"JR, along with the newly merged Carey-Martin clan gets Jenny ready to go home. Everyone seems excited except for Krystal, who is holding her breath, hoping that nothing goes wrong this time to get in their way.

Barry visits Adam in the hospital and tells him that there is no evidence linking him to Janet or Jenny's disappearance from the hospital, leaving recovery from his heart attack as the only thing left to do. Adam notes that it will be easier to do that without all of the distraction around him, just as Tad enters the room. Barry tries to send him on his way but Adam vetoes that, saying that he needs a good laugh. Tad notes with a smirk on his face that he was going to tell him to stay away from his family, but seeing that Adam is in no position to do much of anything, he decided to refrain and will just take his new daughter home for good. He goes out into the hall and finds Babe incensed that Adam won't be charged for his crimes. Tad reminds her that with no evidence, there's no case.

They rejoin Krystal in the hospital room, and Joe gives Jenny a clean bill of health. Krystal begs Joe to tell her that she will have no reason to worry or look over her shoulder once she leaves the hospital. The chief of staff does the best he can by assuring her that she and her daughter are surrounded by love. He leaves, and Tad soon follows, and asks his father that Adam not be on the loose while his daughter is leaving the premises.

Barry offers to call Adam a car to get home, but Adam dismisses him saying that he has other people to take care of those things. Barry leaves but the Elder Chandler is alone for mere moments before Joe comes in and informs him of his discharge orders and the advice that he should have a friend or family member escort him home. This hits a nerve and Joe says aloud what is running through his head: Adam has no one to call on. Emotionally injured, Adam covers with bravado and takes a crack at Tad to make Joe leave. In retaliation, Joe tells him that they are waiting on his test results and the lab is horribly backed up. As he leaves, he passes Colby, who had been able to hear the exchange. She steps away from the room and is soon rejoined by her brother and sister-in-law. She lets on that she feels guilty because Adam is alone, but the both remind her that he brought it on himself. In addition, JR applauds her for breaking out of the Chandler mold that Adam tried to force her into and notes his hope that she doesn't get sucked back in. The trio then goes back to Krystal's room to help her pack it in and leave. Tad catches up with them, but before they go, Krystal locks eyes with a very lonely Adam.

Krystal and crew arrive back home, but the new mother refuses to let go of Jenny. JR tries to ease her anxiety by letting her know that Winifred isn't far away in a back room, taking care of Little A. She reluctantly allows Colby to initiate some baby massage, which is supposed to encourage bonding, but only really lets her guard down when she realizes that Colby isn't 100% there. The young girl admits that she feels bad that this group is together and happy while Adam has no one. She knows that she shouldn't care but she does. Krystal tells her that she is a wonderful and loving person and that she should do what she feels she needs to do, despite all of the horrible atrocities that Adam inflicted upon them. She tells the young girl that no matter what happens between family members, you can't just turn your feelings off. She says that it's not too late to smooth things over with her father and urges her to go. Colby does as asked, allowing Tad to come out from his hiding place in the hall. Together, the new parents muse about all of the firsts that Jenny has brought them, and Krystal finally lets her guard down, saying that she would be more than happy to let him be the one to get up for the 2 a.m. feeding.

Back at the hospital, Adam barks orders into the phone as a means of getting a car sent to pick him up. Babe joins him, uninvited, and asks if his heart attack was a life-changing experience for him like it was for so many people. He throws out caustic one-liners to keep her at bay, but she tells him she is aware that he asked for Krystal when he was rolled in, and knows that he couldn't keep his eyes off of her as they were leaving. Adam continues to assert that he wants nothing more than Krystal and her baby out of his mind and out of his life, but Babe doesn't believe him. She reminds him of all of the ways that he tried to break Krystal and how he lost every time. Before walking out of the room, she tells him that his failures make him a loser and that her mother deserves better than that.

Colby returns to the hospital and tells her father that she has come to take him home. He reminds her that the last time she made the offer, it was a trick. She assures him that she is being straight up this time, because she still loves him and doesn't want him to be alone. Grateful, he embraces his youngest child tightly.

Kendall is frantic at knowing that even though she locked Greenlee away to prevent her from ruining the wedding, she still got out. Zach tries to convince his wife that she should take that as a good sign, and that Greenlee probably left after knowing that she couldn't get what she wanted. Kendall tells him that there is no way that Greenlee would give up that easily, and storms out to track her down.

In the garden, Ryan dispatches all of the guests to the reception area inside so that they can get the party started. Meanwhile, he announces, he will giving his new bride a surprise gift. They do as they are told as Ryan leads a bewildered Annie to another part of the garden. When she spies his gift, she is hesitant to give in, but he convinces her that she can do it. She comes face to face with a beautiful horse, Othello, and allows Ryan to lift her into the side saddle and lead her around the beautifully landscaped grounds. After a few moments, unbeknownst to the newly wedded couple, Greenlee shows up and watches them from behind a tree.

Inside as the guests mill about and talk amongst themselves, Ava (as Lily) excuses herself, and Aidan starts to suspect that something is amiss when he catches her paying a little too much attention to a passing waiter.

Kendall and Zach arrive at the reception, and take relieved, Kendall admits that Zach may have been right about Greenlee taking her lumps than leaving. She doesn't have time to ponder any alternatives, as the bride and groom finally arrive to mingle with all who came to wish them well.

Jamie and Julia reconnect at the reception, and she tells him that since Kathy has settled in well at Wildwind, she thinks the time has come to take a trip out to California to introduce her to the Santos portion of the family. Jamie thinks it's a great idea for Kathy to be such an integral part of large network of people who love each other. He then tells her that he decided to return to medical school and fulfill his dream of becoming a doctor. Julia instantly knows that his work at saving his baby sister's life was what pushed him back into it, and his glowing fa├žade is proof. She tells him that she will do whatever she can to help him, and he reminds her that her most important role will be stress reliever. Cheekily, she agrees to accept the challenge. A little while later, Jamie finds Amanda and she tells him that although the damage had already been done, it reminded her that she can never truly relax or let her guard down, lest life smack her in the face and remind her of her true station. Jamie offers that positive thinking about her cool house, friends, and fantastic job could help her out of her perpetually negative cycle.

Jonathan approaches Ava, believing her to be Lily, and offers her a drink. After making him sit it on the bar so she wouldn't touch him, she justifies her lateness by offering that she didn't want to interrupt the ceremony. He then tells her that he is glad she is talking to him, especially after his bad run-ins with her sister. She defends herself in a very Lily-like manner, and Jonathan buys the whole thing. From across the courtyard, Aidan and Di watch them, and Di reminds him of his disparaging opinions regarding Ava, and how it doesn't seem that she has had an ill effect on Lily. They start to argue the point, but Del interrupts them and redirects their attention to the bride and groom's first dance. Ryan and Annie proceed to show off the fruits of their salsa dancing lessons, and then invite the others to join them on the floor. A few moments later, Kendall is able to make her way over to Ryan, and she tells him that he has no idea how much he owes her.

A short time later, Kendall and Di briefly talk about the cute scene before them in which all of the kids clamber over each other for a chance to dance with Ryan. Their conversation doesn't last long as Zach shows up to steal his wife away. He takes her on a walk and shows her a private bridge on the grounds. She is amazed that he always knows exactly what she needs, but he tells her that it's his job. She notes that Greenlee's return has made her so crazed that she has had to force her smile all day. He tells her that he wants her to smile for real, and sweeps her into his arms before lowering both of them to the ground for some afternoon delight.

Annie dances with her new brother-in-law and thanks him for believing she could be with Ryan before she believed it herself. She tells him that she wants him to have the same kind of thing, not just by living through them. As he gazes at the woman he believes to be Lily, he notes that he had an amazing love once and it was one that he will never forget.

Jonathan asks Lily to dance with him as they'd done before but not knowing how to react makes Ava extremely uncomfortable. She tries to escape the situation by saying she needs to go to the bathroom, but Aidan interrupts her flight by telling her that she looked uncomfortable and he wanted to check on her. She nervously asks why they are both being so nice to her, but before she completely falls apart, Di swoops in and saves her, noting that the loudness might be getting to her. She whisks her away inside, but as they round the corner, a waiter drops a tray. Ava's reaction of putting her earplugs in is too slow and knowing the difference, Di coaches her to start counting backwards from 100 before she is found out.

Back in the courtyard, just after Ryan announces again how lucky they are for this day and the celebration with their friends, the authorities show up with a warrant for Ryan's arrest. He makes them go inside, where they explain to him that he is being charged with bigamy, as there is proof he is still married to his former wife. Annie comes in, demanding a good explanation, as Emma fears she will be taken away again. Ryan tells her exactly what happened, and tells her that it boils down to a clerical error. He promises that he won't be gone long, as he needs to rush back and feed his new bride some wedding cake. He kisses her and then dashes off with the police, his little brother following closely behind. Annie makes her way back out to the yard, where everyone but her closest friends had cleared out. Barely holding back her tears, she tries to act as if everything would be fine, but asks if someone can explain to her what had happened to mar her previously unflawed wedding day.

JR visits his mother's grave, and says that he has no right to be there because he failed to grant her dying wish. He tells her that a lot of pain could have been avoided if he had just done what she asked. He apologizes, and asks her how he can make it right and become a son that she can be proud of.

Kendall and Zach return to the courtyard to find out that Ryan had been arrested. Without hearing any details, Kendall immediately recognizes it as Greenlee's handiwork.

Ryan and Jonathan arrive at the station with the authorities, and Jonathan immediately calls Jack and requests that he come downtown and act as Ryan's legal counsel. Ryan thinks it's a colossal mistake, but the authorities swear they have proof. They lead him into the interrogation room and soon after, the person who filed the charges follows suit. Ryan turns and finally comes face to face with the woman he believed was his ex-wife – Greenlee."
