    Different Woman, Different Plan.

    Thursday, February 26 2009
    Reva and Jeffrey fight, Bill confronts Cyrus and Buzz goes to Phillip to help get revenge.

    Reva is gushing to Jeffery about how they can have a happy ending to their pregnancy. He tells her that she should say that on camera. She realizes that he's seen her video. He's angry and brings up her previous suicide attempts. She claims that it's different this time and she wants to be around for their child. "You have to choose to live," he says. She admits that she's made a lot of these videos and takes out a box full of the recordings. He can't get over how every day that he thought was full of hope was filled with her confessing her secret feelings to her son. She wanted to prove that her love for her son would never die. He lectures her about the need to be brave and strong. She yells back at him, claiming that she is hanging on by her fingernails and won't be called a quitter. He forbids her to leave him to raise the child alone; he doesn't want to have to tell their son that she was a coward. She walks out.

    Frank is cleaning up at Company when Buzz walks in. He's exhausted so his son helps him sit down. "Help me make Alan pay," Buzz begs. He needs Frank to turn his back for awhile. Frank doesn't think framing Alan will bring Coop back. He reminds his father of everything he still has to live for and tells him not to dishonor Coop's memory. They hug and Frank asks him to promise an end to the 'crazy talk'.

    Alan finds Cyrus sitting at his desk, gabbing on the phone. Alan tells him that there will be more than enough Spauldings around to handle projects now that Phillip is back. Lizzie walks in and asks them what's going on and then asks Cyrus out for dinner. When she goes to get her coat, Alan warns Cyrus that he hasn't forgotten about what he did to his sister. "Different woman, different plan," Cyrus says. After he walks out, Alan lights a cigar. A pain shoots through his gut.

    Grady calls Bill. Disguising his voice, he tells him not to be stupid or, next time, Lizzie won't be so easy to find. After he hangs up, Bill goes into the jail to see Phillip. "If you love your daughter, you will work with me," Bill says. He admits that he's screwed things up since he got back, but he wants to make them right. Phillip doesn't see how he can help. Lizzie hates him even more than Bill. Besides that, he's locked in jail and he doesn't trust him.

    Buzz arrives next. Phillip tells him that he can't help anyone while he's locked up in jail. Buzz unlocks his cell. Phillip doesn't know what to do. "I expect you to be Phillip Spaulding, not someone soft and sentimental," Buzz says. Phillip doesn't think killing his father will help. Buzz threatens to drag him out of the cell. When he tries, he collapses. Buzz claims he wants justice. "Justice is what they give you when they can't give back what you lost," Phillip philosophizes. He tells him that Coop's books will live on. "You can stay here and rot," Buzz says, walking out and locking him in.

    Lizzie is eating with Cyrus at Towers. She tells him about when her father tried kidnapping her. Bill arrives and confronts Cyrus about his dreams. He accuses him of calling him and threatening Lizzie. When he points out Cyrus' dog tags, Lizzie remembers the sound. She asks him to open his shirt. When he does, they can see that there is no scar so he couldn't be the kidnapper. Bill suggests that he must have had plastic surgery. Lizzie thinks he's an idiot and tells him to go.

    Alan arrives at Cedars looking for a doctor. He runs into Rick before he can get the one of his choice. Rick takes him into the exam room and listens to his chest. "Stick with the cigars, the red meat and stress and you should be dead within a week," Rick says before walking out.

    Reva sits in an exam room talking to her sonogram and asking the baby for advice about what she should do. Rick walks in and interrupts her. She needs him to help her with how to be married. Jeffrey seemed to want a different roller coaster ride than the one she is on with him. He advises her to go home and just live her life. She's not sure how to live the rest of her life. As they talk, Alan eavesdrops. Once Rick leaves her alone, Alan sneaks in. "I know how you feel," he tells her. He tells her to take everything she can from this life and leave the next one to the losers. She can't live in a world like that.

    Jeffrey goes to Company looking for Reva. He finds Frank instead. They decide to have a drink. When they get a beer, Jeffrey tells him that he feels bad about what's been going on. Frank opens up about how Buzz is searching for revenge. They smash beer cans and Jeffrey admits that Reva is scared and so is he. Frank wonders if he is scared that he might actually be able to look after the child alone.

    Jeffrey returns to Cross Creek. Reva arrives a moment later. She tells him about her talk with Alan and how she refuses to be as fatalistic as he is. He tells her to get rid of her tapes. She refuses. He picks up the baby name book and begins reading names.

    Frank arrives at the jail and is angry to see Alan with Phillip. Phillip tells Frank to look after his father. Frank runs off. Alan tells his son that he is taking care of Lizzie. "You stole four years from me. You owe me!" Phillip barks as he grabs Alan by the collar.

    Lizzie returns to the mansion. When she walks into Alan's office, she finds Buzz sitting there in the dark.

    Cyrus goes to see his brother and lectures him for threatening Bill. As they argue, Bill walks in.

    Next on Guiding Light:

    Bill confronts Grady and gets punched out.

    Mallet goes to Bosnia to adopt a baby.

    Well, I had the chance to watch today and my comments are as follows:
    1. Reva is holding back on the truth AGAIN. She fears the outcome of her final chemo and doesn't want Jeffery to know.

    2. Alan has pains, Buzz has pains. Look out for this one.

    3. Maybe, just maybe the kidnapping s/l will be over soon.

    4. Buzz unlocking Phillip's cell????? Phillip didn't go anywhere. Smart man.

    5. Bill gets punched out AGAIN.

    6. That's all folks.

    Why does Grady and Cyrus alway get away with murder and hurting people. The show is sometime not worth watching when the bad guys always win. It doesn't make any since to watch if they are always winning and the good are hurting and being used and manipulated by bad men.

    Mallett sl please end it dumb.I am realy hoping that Phil ends the kidnapping crap once and for all.

    I think Jeffrey was too hard on Reva today. People don't choose to get cancer, and when they lose the battle it's not because they are cowards. I think it was very sweet and practical of Reva to make the tapes for their son. That way, even if she doesn't make it (which I'm hoping she will) her child will get to know her as a person and see how much she loved him.

    On a different note, I am so sick of the whole kidnapping business with Lizzie. Let her find out that Grady and Dinah were behind it and move on already! This has gone on for way too long. It's making me sick to watch her fawning all over Cyrus when Bill is working so hard to prove himself to her.

    I was perfectly fine and dandy without seeing slime ball Grady for the last couple of weeks. I hate him and I want him to go down and get this kidnapping s/l over!!! Poor Bill he needs to come out of this one on top!

    Phillip has almost become a counselor in his jail cell!! I want him out and about to stir things up!! I really hope Lizzy pulls her head out of the sand and loves her father, forgives him, and dumps Cyrus and Alan!!

    I'm brand new to the site, and love the daily updates and the spoilers!! I think the whole Mallett and Marina adoption will end with them adopting Shayne & Laura's baby that she had? Just my theory.....

    I hope that one of them don't die & have to give the other person their heart. *Buzz & Alan* Let's not repeat this one. If so then Frank will fall in love with Alan. haha! Please end this kidnapping story with all the truth coming out. That Grady did it, Dinah helped him, Alan & Cyrus helped also to frame poor Bill. They all need to be held accountable for it but we know how this show is. No one will be. They will all move on to ruining other peoples lives like they always do. Hope Cyrus & Grady leave town!
    Phillip needs to be let out of jail. Geesh! He is paying for kidnapping his kids yet all the other kidnappers of Lizzie run free. Yeah! No whiny Olivia today:-) Thank you!

    Good Evening to all of you!

    Enough of this annoying storyline of Lizzie's kidnapping!!!
    How many months has this s/l been on-going? It seem like forever.

    Greasy Grady and Cyrus should have been "found out" a long time ago. I wish both of them would leave this show, never to return. They should also take nutty Dinah with them to another continent. At this point, I don't give a rat's azz!

    Too bad Lizzie looked at the wrong brother's chest for the scar. Of course, we know Grady covered it up with a tattoo. I am still trying to find out how Bill got the same scar. Would someone please enlighten me?

    Welcome back, Grant! You have been missed. Alan should know that payback is a biatch. I don't believe the two of you will ever be close again. I am looking forward to seeing you here for a very long time. You are now a more sensitive and caring man. Lizzie will forgive you, so will Beth and Olivia. You were not responsible for the things you did four years ago because you were mentally ill. I love the way you are now.

    Bill has a scar on his chest because Grady cut him while he (Bill) was in the coma.

    Posted by Sunflower23 at Thursday, February 26 2009 06:50 PM

    Oh, I hope this means that stupid kidnapping s/l is over really soon. They need to send Cyrus and Grady away for good. I was wondering, does any one know is Shane saw Lara's dead body. If he did wouldn't he have seen that she was pregnant?

    Hi 3 Puppies, Julien,Vanillahere, mom of 6 and every one else.
