    In Company, everyone gathers around to go through more baby names. Olivia announces that she, Frank and Nat need to meet with the nursery designer. Frank tells them that he has a date. Everyone teases him. Daisy comes in and announces that she is leaving for Berkley in a couple of hours.

    Doris tells her daughter that she pulled a few strings and got her into the writing program at Berkley. Ashlee runs off and tells Daisy. She thinks they should rent a house together. "We're going to California!" they scream.

    Frank gets called away as Nat and Olivia walk in the park. They sit down. Olivia is amazed that she is getting everything she's ever wanted, but she feels kind of bad for Frank.

    Remy tries to get Christina to relax. She's eager to get married before they have the baby. They rush off to find Mel. When she opens his door, they see Cyrus naked in bed. "I was just giving her her birthday present," he says.

    At the mansion, Lizzie complains to Bill that Alex seems obsessed with Fletcher. He interrupts them to promise that he won't let them get into any trouble. Alex hopes that they can get into some kind of trouble. Phillip and Beth come in. He pays his condolences.

    Lizzie goes outside to mope. Her parents assure her they aren't going anywhere. Fletcher comes out. He and Bill talk about Ben and then Alex comes out with her bags. "I'll be back for the damn wedding," she tells them with a laugh. They drive away.

    Inside, Phillip tells Beth that he feels weird. He's the oldest Spaulding in the mansion now. She gives him a notebook and tells him he should write everything he's done and felt down. They kiss. Rick calls and asks them to go to the park.

    Mindy goes to see her father. She tells him that she'll be staying in town. He's thrilled.

    Jonathan and Sarah are playing with Reva at his new place. Josh calls and asks her to meet him at Cross Creek.

    Maureen tries setting up her father with her drama teacher. She tells them that they should ride their bikes together some time.

    Reva drives to Cross Creek to meet Josh. He tells her that he isn't going to Venezuela anymore. He's going to go and oversee the new wing of the HB Lewis hospital in Oklahoma instead. He'd also planned to kidnap her and marry her... "I love you, I always have, always will," he tells her. She gets upset, but she loves him too... still, she's not ready. He admits that he's not ready either and that's why he's leaving so that he can get ready. Then they can be together, always. He promises to come back and meet her in one year at the lighthouse at noon. After Josh drives off, Billy arrives and asks her what she's going to do. "I don't know," she says.

    Remy and Christina call their friends down to the courthouse for a speedy wedding. Doris performs the service. They sign the license and run off to say goodbye to Ashlee and Daisy. Everyone hugs, Doris cries and Daisy tells Marina she'll have to handle being the only Cooper girl. James and Daisy tell each other that they love each other. She and Ashlee jump in the car and drive off.

    Frank and Blake cross paths in the park. They soon realize that they are there to meet each other. They shake hands and say how much they like talking to each other. As they walk, hand in hand, they run into Nat and Olivia who tell them that they are going to name the baby Francesca. Frank's family crowd into the park and see him with Blake.

    Phillip and Beth arrive in the park. Rick reveals that Danny, Michelle and Mindy are all moving back to town. "The Four Musketeers ride again!" Rick says. Phillip wanders over to his son. James tells him that Daisy is gone, but he's right where he wants to be.

    Daisy comes back to town and runs into James' arms.

    Mallet and Dinah run around Europe.

    Reva and Colin go to the lighthouse to meet Josh. She tells Josh that she had to find herself again. He's found himself too and he wants to be with her, the woman he has loved his entire life. "If you still want to be together, then I'm in," she says, in tears. They kiss and load up his truck. "You ready?" he asks. "Always," she says. They drive off in HB's old truck.

    When I was 8 years old we moved to a new town and I had no friends except for our neighbor, an 80 year old woman named Mrs. Frost. She had been watching (or listening to) Guiding Light since the first episode on the radio! That was the summer I got hooked; Reva had just come to town, and I have been a loyal fan of the show ever since.
    Mrs. Frost past away a while back, but between the two of us she and I have seen the show through from beginning to end. I am sad that it’s gone but I guess it’s the circle of life. It can still go on in my imagination and memories.
    Thank you Mrs. Frost, I’m glad you showed me the Light.

    Good by 3 pupps I wish you all the best! To everyone else, I will be on ATWT

    I loved the episode, but sad to see it go... Glad they had Reva & Josh back together. Thought the writers did a great job, why couldn't they write like that always...

    Honestly, all I can say is that I hated the finale. I understand that they wanted to appease the Reva and Josh fans but for a whole year Jonathan didn't say anything and Jeffery didn't care about his son? Honestly? I don't believe that. And I didn't like Shane and Marina and Dina and Mallet together. I wish that they would have kept Dinah and Shane together. And I just don't see Rick and Mindy happening but I think that they might have been together, or at least he wanted her when they were in high school. Everything else was fine with me but them just ignoring Jeffery and putting Josh and Reva together ruined it for me.

    Ok why did it take the show to end to get Frank and Blake together and Mindy and Rick together? If they would of done it before they canceled GL I do not think it would of been canceled.I do hope one day it will return.

    The above update regarding Rick and Mindy, Phillip and Beth makes it appear that Rick and Mindy were toasting Phillip and Beth who were getting married. But I believe (unless I"M nuts) it was Rick and Mindy getting married and Phillip and Beth were toasting them.

    Oh what happened to Jefery and Edddie?

    I think the writers did a fantastic job....keeping us on our seats till the very end. I am sad to see it end, I am still hoping for someone to pick it up at some time. seventy some years is a long time to just let it go!! Yay for Josh and Reva!!!

    Posted by ladijoy at Friday, September 18 2009 01:24 PM

    It was Mindy and Rick's wedding.....not Beth and Phillip

    As for what happen in the end I really wanted Reva to be with Jeffery and I don’t like that he didn’t have a final SL. Is he just out there waiting or did I miss something? He should be with his son! Everything else seemed pretty nice. I can’t believe it’s over.

    I grew up watching Guiding Light with my grandmother. We watched it every single day and Reva was ALWAYS our favorite. When she died in December I took over watching on my own, and I feel like I am not only loosing a long time friend but my last piece of my grandmother. I have so many good memories of Guiding Light and it has such a strong place in my heart. Goodbye Guiding Light, your light has shown so brightly in many people's lives. We will miss you.
