Final Broadcast Episode on ABC Daytime
The last episode of "All My Children" begins with a series of births, starting with Erica's (Mona holding a pretty baby girl), followed by Bianca's (Erica and Travis in the delivery room), Jake's (Charles Tyler congratulating Joe Martin -- it's a boy!), Amanda's (Natalie urging Janet to push), and Trevor's (Amanda smiles at Jake). We see happy families now and happy families then: Brooke and Tad with little Jamie and now with adult Jamie, hugging him good-bye; Dixie with baby JR; Angie hugging baby Frankie as Jesse drives; and Erica brushing the hair off of Bianca's face and Bianca turning to do the same to Miranda. We hear Angie's voiceover as she attempts to convince Jesse to release David. She says to watch your children grow up and share that with a town is such a gift. (How very meta!) Conflicted, Jesse understands, but he can't condone David for breaking the law. Cara defends David as she says he gave many people second chances. As Cara talks, we see Greenlee and Ryan playing with Emma in the park and Kendall and Zach playing with their boys at home.
