As the World Turns Daily Recap: Enough With The Z's





Bits of annoying banter started off this week for As the World Turns....let's just hope it doesn't dominate the week.

First off lets start with the couple who are definitely not going to make it long term, Parker Munson and Liberty Ciccone. Liberty is far beyond Parker in maturity and you can already tell she wants out. However for now she seems to be letting him get his way as she agreed to turn down the internship of a lifetime. Meanwhile Parker is acting more like a 5 year old then a teen with his pouting and temper tantrums. And I don't care who you are you never speak to your mother the way he spoke to his mom Carly Tenney today, even if he did have a point on the drinking issue.

Earlier that evening Carly returned to her room with Craig Montgomery obviously inebriated and started drinking even more. They were about to have sex when Parker showed up looking for Liberty. Then when Parker misconstrued, as kids his age do and he is a kid, the relationship between Liberty and her new boss he lost it and went off on his mom calling her a gross disgusting drunk. Personally I would have slapped the kid but Carly's feeling a bit insecure at the moment so instead she believed him and decided to stop drinking. We'll see if it works or not although I doubt it will seeing as the build up they've made for this story.

Back in Oakdale Luke Snyder and Noah Mayer were getting settled in for a romantic night of making out and watching movies. But just as they started to enjoy each other Z & Z the "wonder twins" from hell showed up with a ouija board and a bottle of absynth. Noah and Luke both turned down the drinks and weren't buying it when they started using the ouija board and once again ruined a Nuke moment for annoying blah blah blah.  Zac the male twin feigned being sick and ran off to the bathroom while Zoe the female twin feigned needing to make her brother a hangover cure in the kitchen. Shortly after they both left the room the power went out and Zoe screamed. She came out and said she plugged in the blender, saw a spark, and everything went dark. She screamed for Zac saying he was scared of the dark so while she and Luke lit candles Noah went looking for him. Zac was then seen in Luke's room looking through stuff with a flashlight. When Noah found him though he had taken off his shirt and started hitting on him. In Noah's hurry to get away from Zac he let go of his questioning of why Zac was in Luke's room in the first place. Shortly after that the twins left just before Luke's parents Lily Snyder and Damian Grimaldi showed up.

Earlier Damian showed up at Lily's office to try to convince her again that he wasn't the one going after the foundation but she kept her suspicions. After Damian left Lily looked again in the drawer where the stolen discs used to be and found a Grimaldi ring. Back at the hotel Damian and Lisa Grimaldi discussed their lives and some items of his cousins' that she thought he might want. He offered to buy her dinner but she left saying she had other plans. After he got back to his room Lily showed up and started again with the accusations. When Damian showed her that the ring obviously wasn't his size her suspicions shifted and she started to believe him. She allowed him to escort her home where they had a confrontation with Luke. Noah left and later went to see Damian alone. He told Damian what he remembered of the mysterious screenname of the hacker and they considered that it might be the horoscope sign Pisces in Italian. Noah then ran into Z&Z at the diner and saw Zoe with a necklace which he asked about and she confirmed, she and her brother were Pisces.

Personally if these two twits are responsible for such an elaborate scheme they deserve Academy Awards for their acting because I wouldn't ever believe they had enough brain cells between them to pull it off.

Parker ripped into Carly today about being a drunk. I couldn't believe it. They sure do give Parker the chance to rip Carly one a new one every chance they get.

Parker is one step away from becoming an abusive boyfriend. I'd smack him if he ever treated me the way he treats Liberty. They need to send him away and perhaps give the kid a haircut because my god that hair is annoying. I used to like him but lately not so much.

I still haven't forgiven Parker for the things he said to Carly and about her to the judge the day he got married. He's been on my shit list ever since then. Angry

I don't know if it was the way I was raised or what but I would not and could not be that disrespectful to my elders especially my parents. And I also would not and could not be with a guy who is that selfish and controlling. Parker needs a serious wake up call. Hal would be so disappointed in him. It's just wrong and they are ruining the character with this new attitude. Also I agree with the hair cut...I think they need to give him and Dusty a haircut. Yes Luke I said give Dusty a haircut just not a buzz cut like before. I loved his hair circa 555-5555.

Carly should've knocked the living hell out of Parker! I know that kids his age are selfish and slick at the mouth, but enough is enough. That boy needs a serious reality check.

Parker is one of the most unlikable characters on the show right now. Run away Liberty!!!

I don't really have a problem with the twins. I don't love them but I don't hate them either. And I think Galbraith and Sullivan are doing a good job.

I'm really liking this bond between Damian and Noah. I never expected we would see that when it was announced that Paolo was coming back. I loved it when Damian told Noah that he was glad that Noah was in Luke's life. That was sweet.

And it was great to finally see Lisa on our screens again. Even if it was just one scene. Eileen Fulton looked great. And in the previews we saw Bob and Nancy. Is it vets week at ATWT or something?

Parker is being a teen out of control, man i remember the days, I had a mouth like that and i was aweful...I was kinda rooting for him at 1st but now ,even tho he's being rebelious, he's starting to be to whiny for me, "what Liberty you don't love me..."...shut up.
and WTF is up with Z this and Z that? come on, ok they are making these 2 seem like the greatest minds ever if they have come up with all of this, as was said above, i just wish they would wrap it up and thank God Holdon is not there I am so sick of him right now as well, but i am Loving having Damian back...but there is one reason i don't want the twins to go...if they do, then that means a new mystery next week for the gay crime-fighters to solve.

Parker has plenty of reason to be hostile toward Carly. His very existence is the result of a plot for her to secure money. She lied to what, three men, about his paternity, and ever since he was a small child, he has played a backseat to one of her schemes after another. Carly is a great, classic soap character, one of my favorites, but she is a terrible role model. Parker's acting out makes total sense to me. He is, after all, his mother's son.

Hmm. Parker is doing a little more than acting out IMO. What he said to Carly was bad. Awful. You don't talk to your mother like that. I'm more concerned about the way he's treating Liberty. He seems very obsessive and stalkerish and I don't think you can blame Jack and Carly for that. They're not the best parents. Not at all, but I don't think you can blame his behavior 100% on the parents. I do think they need to do things different. When Parker misbehaves nothing happens. They need to stop coddling him. That's why I was happy with Jack's reaction to the marriage. And that's why I was disappointed in Jack when he apparently gave Parker money to go to New York. I hope Liberty gets her backbone back soon and breaks up with Parker.

You don't talk to your mother like that.

True, but your mother shouldn't abandon you and your siblings to run off with some strange man every Sweeps either! LOL I believe in children respecting their parents, but parents should respect their kids. Carly needs to take responsibility for the way Parker has turned out. She can't expect him to be a well-behaved, mannerable child after the schizophrenic upbringing she and Hal and Jack and Julia and Janet and the other Julia and Craig and Holden and Simon subjected the poor kid to.

I guess we'll have to agree to disagree on this somewhat. :D 

While I don't excuse Carly and Jack's behavior, and it's definitely part of the problem, I don't think you can just say that Parker is the way he is just because he has the parents that he has.

But we've disagreed about other things too. Although I did change my mind about Alison. I really loved her, but since she's been with Casey I can't stand her anymore... LOL! Hopefully the return of Larry next month will make her interesting again. And even though I wasn't a fan of them, I'd rather see Casey with Emily.

One of my grandfather's fave phrases was "Boy I'm gonna bust your brains right outta your ears!" LOL Luckily for me, the effort of getting up out of the recliner, and missing a scene or two of Matlock, was usually deemed not worth punishing me for my smart mouth! I can actually count the actual spankings I got, but Lord knows I needed many more!

Parker needs to be taken behind the woodshed for an attitude adjustment.

The Z twins have to go. Every time they are in a scene it is about as pleasant as finger nails on a blackboard.

If Noah and Luke stay together, could Luke please be a little less needy and whiney. Who knows maybe Damian and Noah will end up as a couple, maybe that is why Damian protested so much about Luke's sexuality.
