    Jonathan Catches Beth in an Uncompromising Position

    Thursday, August 31 2006
    Jonathan takes pictures of Beth & Rick's liason. Alan-Michael comforts a crying Ava. Olivia tries to have Ava arrested. Lizzie admits to Lillian that she is in love with Jonathan.

    Rick asks Mel to get together for coffee but she replies that she's very busy and is unable to. He calls Beth and tells her he'd like to see her if she can come by and then has second thoughts after he hangs up.

    Rick heads to Beth's "room" and knocks on her door. In the background, Jonathan is stunned realizing Beth is having an affair. After making love, Beth asks him what he's thinking?! Rick admits that it feels so right and wrong all at the same time and doesn't know how to deal with it all. Beth tells Rick they should rent a movie next time or better yet, go out to see one. Rick tells her they can't be "seen" together and kisses her goodbye. She runs to the open door and kisses him one more time while Jonathan video tapes the entire moment. After Rick leaves, Jonathan knocks on Beths' door with a smile! Jonathan shows Beth some of his favorite moments on the video. Beth tries to deny it all explaining her and Rick are very affectionate with each other. Jonathan continues, explaining that Beth will destroy Alan's case against Lizzie or he'll blow up the pictures and make certain everyone will know what went on today. As she glares at Jonathan he asks if they have a deal?

    Rick heads out for lunch and meets up with Mel and her brother. He tells her he thought she didn't have time for even a coffee? She said she didn't and still doesn't because she was going over the case with Lizzie. Tammy approaches them and asks them who would testify against Alan. Rick replies that she can start with him. Tammy thanks him for that.

    Ava and Coop pack up lunch for a customer while she worries about Emma and how she's doing.

    Olivia watches Emma sleep feeling guilty for leaving her with Ava. Buzz tells her she doesn't mean it and it was an accident. Olivia refuses to believe it was an accident and thinks Ava really poisoned Emma on purpose. Buzz talks with Olivia and comforts her and replies that Frank is going to stop by. At the moment, in walks Coop and Olivia asks if Ava is with him. He assures her that Ava is not around at all. But Olivia asks him to call her because she has some apologizing to do.

    Coop calls Ava and tells her she won't believe who wants to talk to her. She agrees to come by the hospital. Coop thanks Buzz for whatever he did to calm Olivia down. In walks Ava and hugs Buzz thanking him for convincing Olivia it was an accident.

    Moments later, Olivia walks in with Frank and tells him to arrest her! Stunned, Ava and Buzz look on in confusion. Frank asks her what he's supposed to arrest her for? Ava tells them it was a mistake. Olivia attacks Ava screaming that she's lying. Buzz and Frank get in between them while Buzz drags Olivia off. Frank asks Ava to leave and stay away from Olivia until she calms down. Out in the hall, Alan-Michael approaches a crying Ava and asks her what happened? She explains the entire thing and is devastated at the fact that this happened to Emma under her watch. He tells Ava that she's welcome to lean on him anytime she needs to.

    Buzz asks Frank to talk and asks him to leave them alone so he can talk with Olivia. Buzz kisses Olivia and tells her she can't use his family like that and won't be doing it again. He heads over to check how Emma is doing.

    Mel talks with Jonathan, Lizzie and Tammy about their options against Alan. She suggests to Lizzie that she needs to stay away from Jonathan. Jonathan stands up and asks why she would suggest such a thing. Mel replies all of Jonathan's history and things he's done make Alan look like the most stable of the 3 of them.

    Lizzie approaches Coop and asks why he's at the hospital. He explains he's there to see his little sister Emma and tells her what happened. Lizzie gets overwhelmed for a moment talking about how hard it is to raise children. But he assures her she'll do well as a mother.

    Later on Lizzie talks with Lillian about the baby and what's best for everyone. Lizzie tries to tell her that she will be a very responsible mother and needs her help. Lillian asks Lizzie if she's falling in love with Jonathan. She replies that Jonathan and Tammy are getting married but Lillian pushes her, wanting to know her feelings. Lizzie gushes about how kind and wonderful and safe she feels around Jonathan, admitting she is in love with him.

    Jonathan calls Tammy telling her he's "onto something" and will call her back when he can.


    Jonathan assures everyone that Beth will do the right thing. Alan follows Beth. Jonathan tells Josh he's not welcome around.

    Guiding Light writers need to wake up and do something with this story line. I hate that are messing with reva and josh again. How can you save reva from cancer when she has had all the treatments. Many people want reva to stay and i think they will lose alot of veiwers if they don't turn this around. I'm tired of waiting for them to have the cancer out in the open. I stopped watching for quite some time when reva left before and sure thinking about it again.

    Johnathon was very very smart in taking those shots, but unfortunatly for someone Rick knows, those pictures will hurt her more than anything! How can Rick cheat on his own wife? What's been happening to them? Beth....what a nut job! She marries Alan, thinks she can lock him up, and now what? She thinks she can have an affair without him knowing about it??! Is she stupid or what? The whole Lizzie thing, it's getting ridiculous. She needs to leave Johnathon and Tammy alone, even though they don't belong together!!!

    Blah, blah, blah! same old, same old thing. Writers wake up! End these storylines and get something good going! Obviously you have new, creative ideas since you decidethat Rick should cheat on his wife! It used to be that I went crazy when commercials came on-now it doesn't make any difference.

    Wow, I'm back to school as a teacher & haven't missed a thing about Reva. I feel all the trivial stuff about the other characters is getting No-where & I don't care for the story-line. Please have Reva tell Josh about her cancer & have Josh WAKE UP to his senses. As for Cassie, I think the old character was much more believable. The chemistry is missing between this Cassie with Josh. Reva is the strong foundation of this Soap. Always has been, always will. PLEASE get things settled w/ Josh & Reva soon. Thanks!

    I've watched this show practicly since it first aired. When I work I record and watch it at night when my husband goes to work. Reeva has always been my first priority for watching. She has alot to give to this show. A few weeks back I lost someone very close to cancer and this has really hit close to me. If Reeva can't beat this and leaves the show then so do I. Reeva and Josh were both wrong in their decisions. However, the one who was really in the wrong was Cassie. It wasn't her place to interfere with her sister's relationship with her husband. She moved in just a little too fast. Family is sacred and Cassie crossed the line. No excuses! I've always enjoyed Reeva and Josh's relationship but I don't think Reeva should take Josh back now knowing how intense his involvement is with Cassie. Keep Reeva, get rid of Josh!!!
