Eve told Ian that Caleb was still watching and waiting to take Daniel away. Alison tried to help Jack pick up the spilled clothes from the suitcase. Alison said that Jamal and Jack and Livvie and herself all need to take a trip together but Jack nixed the idea telling her that Livvie can't get Caleb from her head and that they needed this time together. He also told Alison that if Caleb were still alive he'd kill him all over again for what he had done to Livvie. Jack couldn't reach Livvie on her cell phone. As Livvie ran from the cave she ran into a mysterious stranger who told her that there is an evil man in the area that attacks women. She asked him if this guy had fangs. Livvie told herself that she needed to get a grip on reality. Livvie saw a snake but didn't believe it was real. Eve and Ian argued about her leaving the baby while she went back to her room to rest for a while. She reluctantly agreed to go when the nurse assured her no harm would come to Daniel.

Due to the horrible tragedies befalling our nation today, all soap operas were pre-empted today. Presumably all network programming will resume tomorrow with no episodes lost.
Soap Opera Central would like to extend our deepest, heart-felt sympathies to any and all persons affected by these horrific events.
Due to continuing news coverage of yesterday's attacks against The United States, all regular daytime network broadcasts have been put on hold. Therefore, no soaps will be shown today. It is unclear when programming will resume as normal. However, Soap Opera Central will remain on deck and provide complete coverage as soon as we are able.
Again, the thoughts and prayers of all those involved in Soap Opera Central -- our staffers and visitors -- go out to everyone touched by these horrors.
At this time, one may find comfort in the words of Agnes Nixon, a profilic soap opera scribe and creator of All My Children and One Life to Live.
Speaking of the "kinship of humankind under God," Nixon writes:
The great and the least
The weak and the strong
The rich and the poor
In sickness and health
In joy and sorrow
In tragedy and triumph
You are All My Children
