Today's recap was provided by Kathy Gire. Check out more of Kathy's work in our Whaddya Think? poll!

Carly and Brad arrive at Fairwinds after their "date," to find John there holding baby Parker and hurling accusations. John tells Carly that he is watching every move she makes.

Denise, who is staying at Ben's because Gary evicted her from her apartment, has a poignant moment when she looks at a pair of ballet shoes in her bag. Ben sets her up on the couch with pillows and blanket, but Denise tells him she has no nightie to wear.

Jack, who is preparing to go to the police station for his shift, comments to Julia that she seems tired all the time. He questions her about how many sedatives she is taking, and Julia, to prove she no longer needs them, throws her bottle of pills into the trash.

Georgia tells Holden and Lily that James caught her and Eddie in the barn, and now James knows that Eddie is living in Lucinda's pool house with her. She tells the Snyders that she is sure James is up to something. Holden leaves for his latest project: renovating Lucinda's stables.

Denise puts on the tops only of a pair of Ben's scrubs. She is jumpy and concerned that Gary will find her. Sara Ruth appears at the door and chews out Ben for abandoning Camille in the recovery room.

Jack suggests a special get-away weekend for him and Julia in New York City, and just as he is walking out the door, he receives a cell phone call from Carly. Julia is very jittery and keeps looking at the bottle of pills in the trash. Carly needs Jack's help, the same old ploy. This time she needs his help in getting John to leave. When Jack departs, Julia retrieves the pills and takes some.

Brad reasons with John and convinces him to leave Carly's. Now there is no reason for Jack to come over, but Carly refuses to cancel her call for help. Brad suggests that Jack find them in a compromising position so that Jack will feel jealousy, but Carly is not convinced.

Sara Ruth is haranguing Ben when suddenly a half-dressed Denise appears out of the bathroom. Some heated words are exchanged between the two women while a helpless Ben looks on. Sara Ruth leaves in a huff. So ,who is this Camille? asks Denise.

In the barn loft, James has rigged an elaborate accident. He has roped several bales of hay together that can be triggered by a rope on the ground. He visualizes the scene he wants to happen: James confronts Holden about killing David and then releases the hay bales which fall and crush Holden. James' reverie is interrupted when Holden comes into the barn and begins sawing boards right beneath James' perch in the loft. Lily arrives and she and Holden make plans for the evening and point out their initials carved many years ago into a post in the old stables.

Back at Fairwinds, Jack checks out Carly's alarm system and the alarm inadvertently goes off. Brad rushes down from upstairs with his shirt unbuttoned and tells a surprised Jack that he is doing "renovations" in Carly's bedroom. Jack leaves to go home to Julia.

Julia is restless and imagines that she has lost Jack to a conniving Carly. To calm herself down, she takes more pills. When Jack returns home, he finds her groggy and sleepy on the couch. He carries her upstairs. Her pill container falls on the floor.

Holden leaves the stables, and James climbs down and secures the rope holding the bales of hay to the post with Holden's and Lily's initials.

Up at the mansion, Lucinda finds the mysterious note that James received declaring that David has been killed by Holden. Lucinda is stunned to realize that James knows the terrible secret!

Today's recap was provided by Kathy Gire.

Margo, who is dressed to go out, kids Katie about the teenager's blushing whenever Eddie Silva is mentioned. Katie admits that she would like to be more than friends with him, and Margo suggests that Katie ask Eddie out. Katie decides to give it a try to hurries out to find Eddie before she changes her mind.

Georgia tells Eddie that she asked her Aunt Lucinda for a computer for him, but that does not please Eddie. Georgia realizes that Eddie is packing to leave, and she frantically tells him that she will go with him since he is uncomfortable being in Lucinda's poolhouse, but Eddie tells her no.

Holden comes into the stables, unaware that James is lurking there. Holden does not see the screwdriver driven into the post that anchors the rope that triggers James' boobytrap. Lily and Luke arrive to have "Daddy Holden" allay the boy's fears about bad dreams and monsters.

Back in the mansion, Matthew tells Lucinda that James has gone down to the stables and Lucinda has a moment of fear for Holden, but then suddenly James is there. He tells her that he is looking forward to spending the evening alone with her when Lucinda confronts him with the note she has found that says Holden killed David. James says it came to him anonymously but that he believes it. Lucinda suggests that David and Emily have run away together, but James tells her he has proof that Holden killed David and cites the blood and fingerprint evidence on the revolver.

Lucinda is stunned and blurts out to James that the killing of David was an accident. James asks how long she has known, and then suddenly realizes that is why she married him. He goes ballistic, and Lucinda begs him to not seek revenge on Holden but to let their two families be resolved and at peace.

Margo is just ready to go out for a celebration at Yo's when Tom appears at the door. He asks her to go to marriage counseling with him, but Margo needs time to think about it. He inquires why she is so dressed up, and she tells him it is none of his business. She explains that his affair with Emily has consumed most of her waking moments while, although he was suffering too, at least Tom has had a job to occupy him. But that has all changed, says Margo, because the celebration at Yo's tonight is in honor of her being reinstated as a detective on the Oakdale PD. She leaves without inviting Tom along.

Eddie and Georgia continue to have a heated discussion about her staying at Lucinda's, and Georgia runs out telling Eddie that she will find Lucinda and "fix everything." Georgia runs into Lily outside the stables and Lily promises to speak to Lucinda on Georgia's behalf and convince her to let Eddie stay.

Katie comes to see Eddie and is too embarrassed to say what is on her mind. Finally she gets it out that he has been a wonderful friend to her but now she is hoping for something more and she hopes she has a chance with him. Eddie is delighted and they kiss.....just as Georgia bursts into the room.

Lucinda continues to plead for no revenge on Holden when it suddenly occurs to her that James might have already harmed him. She remembers that Holden is working in the barn, and she rushes down there. When she leaves, James phones someone and asks for his plane to be made ready and for all of Lucinda's World Wide stock to be transferred to his own private account.

Lily and Holden and Luke arrive at the mansion looking for Lucinda so that they can intercede on Georgia's behalf. Matthew tells them that James is going out of town on business and that Lucinda has just run out.

Lucinda runs into the barn, calling for Holden. She spots the screwdriver driven into the post with Lily's and Holden's initials and gets hysterical and vows to stop this here and now. She pulls out the screwdriver which releases James' booby trap. In dramatic slow motion, the entire loft, with all its bales of hay, falls down on top of Lucinda.
