    Plans Wear Thin

    Tuesday, October 17 2006
    Dinah goes after the blogger. Josh talks things over with Reva. Marina has mixed feelings about Mallet.


    Dina has a plan

    A tired and goofy Gus comes to the police station to kill time with Mallet. He lets out that he and Harley are trying to get pregnant and, just as they get into the birds and the bees routine, Marina appears and Gus excuses himself. Marina imagines that Gus is embarrassed to be around them because he believes what the blogger has been saying about her and Mallet. On that point, Mallet says that they need to have a talk about their feelings. Marina becomes nervous and says that they don't need to have this talk, but he insists and then lists all of the things she does that annoy him like listening to talk radio, eating health food on stakeouts etc.. She tells him that he's being obnoxious (yet, seems disappointed that this is all he's said) and tells him just to forget that she's a woman.


    Jeffery is still anxious about what the blogger will do next. Dinah teases him until he gets annoyed and goes to take a shower. Once he's busy, she uses his password on his computer to send the blogger a message. She soon receives a reply and calls the police station, pretending that she's the blogger and leaves a message for Mallet to meet her at the fishing shack. Once she arrives at the shack, she looks around in the dark until someone knocks her on the head and she falls to the ground unconscious. She wakes up as Mallet discovers her. He holds her while she explains her plan to trap the blogger to him. She thought that, maybe, if she could help capture him, it would make up for things and confesses that she misses him. Marina interrupts to say that the guy they were after escaped down the alleyway. She is noticeably uncomfortable looking at Mallet and Dinah. Suddenly, Jeffrey appears, explaining that he saw the message Dinah sent from his computer and was worried about her. Mallet begins to tell him off for involving Dinah in all of this, but Jeffrey tells him to look after the crime scene while he takes Dinah to the hospital. Jeffrey's involvement makes Mallet even more worried about Dinah and he tells Marina that he will be keeping a close watch on both of them from now on. Jeffrey takes Dinah home and tells her that she has to be more careful and stop acting stupid.

    Harley has come to see Cassie to borrow some fertility books. She's baffled to learn that Cassie has sent Josh out to talk to Reva. When Cassie goes to get the books, Gus appears and begins making out with Harley on the couch until Cassie returns and he runs away. Harley tells her that she is stirring up trouble by sending Josh to see Reva and Cassie admits that sending Josh back into Reva's orbit is her worst nightmare. With all of this strange behavior, Harley suggests that Cassie must be trying to sabotage her own relationship. Then, she tells her about her and Gus attending Reva and Billy's non-wedding in Las Vegas. This is all news to Cassie who demands details for why they didn't go through with it. Harley lets her know about Reva's slip, when she said that she couldn't wait to marry Josh, but then explained that she was really happy with Billy. Cassie worries, Harley tells her she has to stop and allow herself to be happy. Then, Gus returns and throws Harley over his shoulder and takes her away.

    Josh tells Reva that Cassie is worried about her and relates everything that Cassie told him about her recent 'stranger than usual' behavior. Reva panics and becomes distraught, asking 'what more does she want? I gave you up, what else could she want?' This isn't the way Josh thought things had happened; he reminds her that she pushed him away for months and realizes that there must be something else wrong. She's reluctant to say anything and remains defensive. Finally, she tells him that she has a gambling problem and the trips away, the large withdrawals of money etc. have all been part of her dealing with gambling addiction. Josh tells her that she did the right thing in not involving him in her problems, but offers to help pay off her debts. He even offers to sell Cross Creek and this makes her very upset; she says that would be like ripping out her heart. She then talks about all the time they spent there with their children and alone. He says this makes it sound like she still wants to be with him. She says no yet again and then tells him that her fight with gambling has been 'tough, but is almost over now.' She is going away, she confirms, but doesn't know to where or when she'll be back. She tells him that he should celebrate Christmas at the cabin and there, in Marah's secret hiding place, he'll find a letter from Santa Claus.

    Josh returns to Cassie and tells her that Reva has a major gambling problem and they aren't going to do anything about it because she can look after herself. He says that he's glad she asked him to talk to Reva though, since, now they know what's wrong with her and don't need to worry about it. Meanwhile, when Reva returns to her room, she finishes her goodbye letter to Josh in which she confesses that he was the love of her life and she would always be grateful for knowing him.

    Next on GL:While Jonathan is practicing to be a father, he has a ghostly visitation from his own.

    Okay, this is too bizarre. Reva will tell Josh about a fictitous gambling addiction which is an illness most people are long into denial over, but she can't tell him that she has a terminal disease??? All I can say is "Writers, what were you thinking"????????????? When I think it can't get any worse---it does! I can't believe that Guiding Light will throw away all those good years of storylines for one that is so ridiculous.

    I'm so tired of Josh being stupid about Reva--he should have known that she was not telling the truth--that something is WAY OFF concerning her; he knows her better than this! Thanks for letting me know what happened--I won't bother to watch this garbage.

    How much longer is Josh going to continue to be so stupid? He has been with Reva long enough to know she has no gambling problem. Why are they being kept apart? When you are in this type of situation, you want your love ones around you. This is unfair to Josh and the kids and they are being cheated out of precious time, they could be spending together. Josh and Cassie is a real snooze.

    This whole story line is absolutely ludicrous!!! That Billy would know that Reva is dying from cancer and not tell Josh??? That Cassie would, knowing the history of Reva and Josh and the Break up to Make up way they live, become involved with Josh??? That Tammy would tell "Uncle" Josh that it is OK that he sleeps with "Aunt" Reva's husband?? The only real thing about this is Josh, as usual, hiding from the truth and not paying attention to Reva because he is hurt/pissed at her behaviour. After all this time, you mean to tell me that Josh doesn't know when Reva is lying or hiding something? come on. I can't see how they are going to resolve this plot. I'm curious though.

    I agree that this is getting a little wierd....Get it over with..I am not sure where the writers are going with this, but it is time to stop and either have Reva die in the show or get her back with Josh...The whole idea of Cassie being with Josh is sick.....No matter what is happening with Reva. The whole Blogger thing is really BORING! Diana deserves to be happy....Why keep making her out to be a bad person.......

    Guiding Light come on, this is crazy. Is Reva dying off the show or not? Get it over with already! Josh is acting so clueless to the love of his life, it's ashame. Reva and Josh have been the couple that has made Guiding Light and the writer's couldn't come up with nothing better than this. I would hate to see Reva Leave but this storyline needs to come to a resolution and quick. I'm going crazy!

    I have to agree with everyone here. Reva and Josh have been together so long he should know her, and know about the sickness. Cassie and Josh is just wrong!!This isn't Jerry Springer...The story lines seem to dragg. Dinah and the blogger this is too out there!!Very hard to follow
    Because of the non-interest after the World Turns I watch
    "Montel" I check online just to see if anything new has happened and in 4 months the answer is NO.

    Oh come on! If Reva is the "love of Josh's life", so why can't he tell that is wife/ex is that sick. I think that Cassie and her daughter are a couple of sick people."

    It seems from today's episode that Cassie is terribly insecure in her relationship with Josh (and she should be). Josh is blind as a bat regading Reva, but what else is new. Reva was absolutely right to tell him Billy did not try to fix her, and it's obvious he was offended. Tough! If Josh wants slow and easy, he has it with Cassie. If he wants predictability and no surprises, he has it with Cassie. If he wants terminal boredom, he has it with Cassie, and so do we. This SL plods on like a Missouri mule pullin' a plough, and it's about as interesting. Stop the stupidity and treat us like adults for a change, writers. Give us something we can sink our teeth into instead of snoring through the show, for Pete's sake! I'd rather read a romance novel. At least there I see an end in sight and it's always a happy one. Can't say that about GL, now can we?

    GL is getting worse by the day. I didnt watch the whole show today and I didnt miss much from the update. This whole Reva thing is utterly stupid and is dragging on way too long. If Reva is gonna bite the big one pls get it over with. Where are the interesting story lines? Back in the day I couldnt wait to watch GL to see what Alan, Reva,Alex and Roger T had up their sleeves. It kept us on the edge of our seats everyday. Now I skip thru the majority of the show. Lizzie is annoying and this whole Jonathan/Tammy thing is old. Everyone knows that Josh will never be over Reva so why in the world would Cassie think she's the one to do it? Harley couldnt, Annie couldnt and Olivia couldnt.
