Episode #13,448----Meg and Dusty instinctively blame Paul for kidnapping Eliza and ask Barbara to call him. Paul ignores Barbâ€™s calls and sneaks into Josieâ€™s car with Eliza, startling her, as she was on her way out of Oakdale having just left Dusty a goodbye letter. By insinuating he has a weapon, Josie is compelled to drive Paul out of town. At Josieâ€™s insistence, Paul returns Barbâ€™s calls and assures her Elizaâ€™s fine. He warns Barbara not to tell anyone heâ€™s made contact with her. After a while, exhausted Josie pulls over alongside a TV studio. Paul apologizes for forcing her to be his accomplice. A stage manager at the studio mistakes them for actors and Paul and Josie use the studio for food and shelter. Meanwhile, even Dustyâ€™s efforts to soothe Meg fail. They go to Fairwindâ€™s with Jack to investigate any secret passages or rooms Paul may be hiding in, but are unsuccessful in their search. Meg returns to Dustyâ€™s room to rest. Dusty finds Josieâ€™s goodbye letter and, inspired, leaves her a message wondering if she knows anything about Eliza. Unbeknownst to him and Josie, Paul intercepts the message and deletes it.
Jackâ€™s distracted in his effort to find Eliza when itâ€™s discovered that Parker and Liberty lied about their whereabouts. Craig admits he gave Parker money to go to a concert in Chicago. To make up for it, Craig will use his sources and finances to track them down. Carly accompanies him, and Janet and Jack baby-sit Johnny. Jackâ€™s once again livid at Craig for being a bad influence on the kids. And later, Carly also yells at Craig for his lack of parenting skills.Make Soapdom's Recaps, Your Recaps, and the Best on the Net
