    Reva says her goodbye to Springfield.


    Reva tries to leave for her new adventure

    Reva goes up the lighthouse one last time to say goodbye to all the sights of Springfield. Before going down to her farewell party, she drops her lucky red rabbit's foot. Upon returning to her room, Billy still wonders why she can't wait any longer, but she insists that now is the time, while she still ahs the strength to do it. When they arrive at the party, she gives her keys to the valet and sees that her rabbit's foot is gone, but realizes that 'I don't need it anymore' before going in to greet the guests already gathered. She moves among them. Harley asks her how she can leave and Reva tells her that now she'll have to be the town's 'new tough doll.' Everyone is jovial, Buzz gives Reva a big kiss and she puts her arm around Jeffrey telling him that 'I always had a weakness for that face.' She's already maudlin and almost in tears as she tells Jeffrey and Blake that she doesn't care who wins the election; no matter what, they have to look after the people of Springfield: They deserve it. Billy's keeping a close watch on her and gets her back when she's woozy, telling everyone that she gets sentimental when she's drinking.


    At the bar, she chats with Rick who tells her that Gus and Harley are pregnant. She loudly congratulates them and asks Harley to promise that Susan will part of their new baby's life. Jonathan and Lizzie arrive next and, after chatting to Lizzie's belly, Lizzie tries to assure Reva that miracles do happen and she shouldn't give up yet. Jonathan takes Reva aside, already realizing that tonight is the night, and makes a brief attempt to talk her out of it. Seeing that this is futile, he stops and she asks him about Tammy. He tells her about their breakup and how he plans to stay with Lizzie. She's heartbroken, but he tells her that it's not her problem anymore; she won't be around.

    Alan comes over to say goodbye, or rather to see her drive off to 'find herself for the fiftieth time.' While she catalogs Alan's failings, he counters with all of hers, saying that she's really leaving town because she's a coward and is simply running away from her problems with Josh. Springfield 'will live happily ever after without her.' Jonathan threatens to throw Alan out, but Reva stops him before telling Alan that, if he doesn't do right by his granddaughter, she will come back to haunt him and hunt him down.

    Next, Tammy arrives but doesn't want to talk about the split up. She asks Reva to take her along when she goes, so that she won't have to watch Jonathan and Lizzie grow closer. Reva says 'no, the car is only a two-seater.' Besides, her story with Jonathan isn't over yet. Tammy insists that it is, even if it is true that 'you only get one real love in your life.' Just then, Josh and Cassie enter. Reva rushes over to them and makes them promise to look out for Jonathan and Lizzie while she's gone. Josh says that's fine until she comes back. She says that she might not come back; she and Billy might find paradise together. Josh then tells her about the dream he had of her pressing car keys into his hands and asking him for help. He imagines this means that there is a part of her that isn't willing to leave. She becomes pale and faint as Billy moves in behind to support her. Josh and Cassie aren't sure what's wrong.

    Hawk and Rusty arrive now and Reva moves over to them. Hawk is bristling with anger still over Josh and Cassie and Reva hooking up with Billy. Rusty keeps trying to calm him down. Reva tells him that, no matter what, Josh will still be a part of her.

    Reva starts up the karaoke and drags Billy up to sing Pretty Woman. After a few torturous bars, he stops the machine and exclaims: 'Damn you Reva! I just can't do this…I just can't sing.' Reva tells him that his singing makes her cry and then tries to challenge everyone else to sing but there are no takers. Finally, she agrees to sing to 'the best audience' and says that she will never forget any of them before launching into Fleetwood Mac's Landslide during which a lengthy montage of her life plays. When that ends, there's a moment of silence before she passes on the microphone to Jeffrey and takes Jonathan aside again. She asks him to keep the party alive so she can slip away. He makes her promise not to go without saying goodbye, but, as soon as his back is turned, she heads for the door.

    Josh stops her in the doorway and asks her if she thought she 'would really get away with this?' But he only means leaving without saying goodbye. She says that he knows her better than anyone and he answers that, if he knew her for a hundred years, he still wouldn't know her well. She doesn't like saying goodbye, especially to him, yet she already has one foot out the door. He tells her that she's 'always looking for a new adventure and I'm always looking for you.' Reva says she doesn't believe that and tells him that he's good with Cassie and they shouldn't let anything get in their way. They say goodbye and Reva looks at the crowd, at everyone drinking and dancing and singing. She kisses her rings and walks out. The valet doesn't have her keys; Billy took them as an insurance policy for his goodbye. He's still reluctant to let her go and can't watch her get in the car, she tells him not to be soft or sad and not to let anyone else be sad. She starts the car and drives off.

    Next on GL:Lizzie and Tammy have a confrontation. Jonathan goes after Reva.

    Okay here is what i think will happen...the doctor will somehow call Billy since they can;t reach Reva and tell him she is either in remission..or it is not cancer after all. Billy will leave to go after her to tell her...but due to being sad..he probably has had a drink or two..he will reach her by cell phone and tell her to wait somewhere.that the doctor called..but he won;t make it to her..he will probably crash and die. She will contact the doctor herself..learn the truth and then feel guilty about Billy's death. Any comments..anyone?

    That's not bad. I can see the remission thing but I can't imagine them killing Billy off like that. Someone is definitely going to get hurt in the next day or two though.

    mod matt..you are probably right..it may be Reva will have an attack of some sort will crash..but not die. Billy will be the one to find her as he will be looking to find her..she.will be hospitalized and then it will all come out. Billy will be forced to tell the truth about her situation. I honestly cannot see them letting her leave. She is such a key character on the show.

    I CAN NOT BELIEVE IT. I AM ACTUALLY HOME TO SEE REVA'S GOODBYE PARTY AND THE SO CALLED PRESIDENT HAS A CONFRENCE(WHO CARES!!) WILL WE EVER BE ABLE TO SEE THIS EPISODE AGAIN. I MUST ALSO SAY THAT AFTER RECOVERING FROM CANCER MYSELF THIS YEAR, THIS STORY LINE WHILE AT FIRST WAS INTRIGUING IS NOW DOWN RIGHT EXHAUSTING AND FRUSTRATING. I LOVE REVA AND JOSH TOGETHER AND IF THIS STORY LINE DOESN'T TURN AROUND REAL SOON I WON'T BE ABLE TO KEEP WATCHING. I TEVO DAILY AND HAVE BEEN LESS LIKELY TO WATCH THIS SILLY CASSIE, JOSH THING. YUK!!! i CAN'T SEE WASTING MY TEVO SPACE ANY MORE.

    I am so tired of this story line. They need to bring back danny and michelle, Maura and Shane and put josh and reva and tammy and john back together again. Please don't put Marina with Maleet that's just really really wrong. Nasty...

    I can't believe they pre-empted the show. I wanted to see Rusty and Hawk. They need to re-run it.

    I don't think they'll kill off Billy as, this year, was the first time he has a contract with GL. I was thinking Tammy hides in the car (because she wanted Reva to take her) and just as Reva is going to end it all, she discovers Tammy. or will this whole thing be someone's dream - possibly Cassie's?

    you Irishprincess they did a similar thing on Married with Children that time..when Peg was pregnant...but when she lost her baby in real life.they wrote it as Al dreamed the whole thing. You are probably right..Tammy could be in the car..but if it is a two seater..where would she hide at. I really hope it turns out this way.

    Guys, Reva will probably die. I saw her on the Emmys and she stated she will be leaving in a year, which is right about now. What makes me mad, is the way they did it. I've watch Reva since the 80's. Not having Josh is just not right. Also, I also hope they repeat the program. I waited so long for it and now we can't see it,

    I can only say that the G.L.won't be the same without Reva.She has so much spunk and character.I was told that she will be alright and resuming her role.Now I am not certain that this will happen.

    I know i work two jobs i actually called one of my boss's and told him i was running late so i could see the whole episode and then came the brodcast. I am seriously considerin writing a letter to the president and telling him that he should keep his stupid brodcasts til after 9 am do them between 10-11:30 when there is nothing but gameshows on. God. Also I was looking at the polls Tammy and Johnathan are destined to be together. I can't stand seeing him put his arms around lizzie. Why? They have to work things out. any comments?
