As The World Turns: Ep. #11283

Ben arrives to do a pre-op exam on Andy. John warns Denise that if Andy can't walk again after the surgery, she'll have to stay with him forever. A shaken Denise insists she had nothing to do with Andy's decision to undergo surgery. Ben asks Andy if he's certain he wants to have Ben to perform the surgery. Andy stands by his decision. The family gathers to wish Andy well, including the newly returned Margo. The surgery goes off well, although Ben cautions they won't know if it was a complete success for a while. Kim overhears Ben admit to Denise he gave Andy the chance to back out and wonders if he pushed Andy into having the surgery. At his new penthouse, Jake begins to go through his things and is flooded by memories of his life with Vicky and the boys. Molly arrives with a housewarming gift and they bond over their mutual interest in motorcycles. Jake tenses up when Molly offers to unpack a box - not realizing it's filled with Vicky's things. Finally, Jake loses his cool and vents his frustration at being forced into a new life. He breaks a vase and injures his hand. Molly cleans and bandages Jake's cut. Molly leaves and admits her visit was a mistake, since Jake wasn't "ready." Later, Jake takes a snow globe from the box of Vicky's things and puts it out, side by side with the plant Molly brought. Luke admits to Lucinda that he misses his "real" mommy. At WOAK, "Lily" confronts Katie about the portrait switch. "Lily" is annoyed about the position Katie has put her in and announces that if she's going down, she's taking Katie with her. Katie reminds "Lily" that she hasn't held up her end of the bargain and fired Henry. Henry, angry that Katie continues to shut him out, warns he'll make her regret it. Lucinda tells "Lily" the kids have picked up on their mother's distance. Lucinda urges "Lily" to reconcile with Holden and is shocked by "Lily's" cool attitude about losing her husband. Later, Mitzi arrives and Rose orders her to get some dirt on Katie and Henry - or she may have to leave empty-handed!
