    Saying Goodbye

    Thursday, October 26 2006
    Reva and Jonathan say goodbye. Billy gets drunk. Lizzie tries to start a new life with Jonathan.


    Jonathan and Reva try to say goodbye

    Jonathan comes back to the remains of the party to find Reva and say goodbye. A miserable Billy tells him that she's already gone and he runs off to find her. She has driven down to the end of the road and prepares to let herself go. It's difficult because 'there's still so much fight' left, but she still feels that she needs to do it 'for her kids and everybody else.' She runs through the radio stations and gets annoyed that she can't find 'any decent music to die to.' She gets out of the car and moves the blockade at the end of the road so she can get through. After climbing back in the car, she discovers a CD and puts it in. As she starts up the car again, Jonathan jumps onto the hood of the car and exclaims 'I'm not done with you yet!'


    She's afraid that he's there to stop her, but he insists that, if he wanted to do that, he could have done it at her 'creepy party.' He tells her that he hated her before he ever knew her because she rejected him and sent him to live with Alfred. He came back just to hurt her and everyone she cared about, but something happened while he was fighting her that he didn't expect; she just kept taking everything he threw at her and he learned to love her. She tells him that he managed to give her back a big part of herself. He starts to apologize for everything, but she closes his mouth and tells him not to regret anything and just to stay with her for awhile. They lay on the hood of the car in each other's arms for some time. He tells her she's about to find out the answer to the greatest question in the world. 'Life after death?' she asks. 'No, is Elvis alive,' he jokes and she laughs before wondering if there is some afterlife. If there is, she will never leave him. He tells her not to jump into his baby's body before she's born. Through all their jokes, tears crease their faces and she finally tells him that it's time for him to go. They kiss and an incredible look of fear fills her face as they exchange an 'I love you' and she turns her back.

    Josh takes Cassie up to the lighthouse. This was his special place with Reva He tells her that he's brought her there so that it can become 'just a lighthouse' again and they can find special places of their own. While they embrace, he looks down and spot Reva's lucky red rabbit's foot sitting on the floor. They sit down and he tells her that a huge weight was lifted off of him tonight when he realized that he belongs with her. Cassie says that now Reva is free and they can both love her again by letting her ago.

    Lizzie is ordering food and Tammy invites her to sit down while it's being prepared. She says that she could tell that Tammy wanted to help Jonathan at the party but stopped herself. He's 'a big boy now…he doesn't need your help anymore: He has me.' Tammy is disgusted at this and begins biting on her lip. Lizzie continues, telling her that with the baby, Jonathan and she have chance at something really special. Tammy can't take it anymore and accuses Lizzie of planning to take Jonathan away from her the whole time. This offends Lizzie, who tells her that this is not what she wanted; she didn't plan any of it and it's not like she could tell Jonathan what to do. It was Tammy who forced him to want the baby. 'Don't you get it? We're married; we have a baby and a whole future ahead of us: We have to make it work.' She finishes by telling Tammy to 'grow up' and then walks out on her just as Remy and Marina walk into the room.

    Remy takes Tammy back to her room to help her finish packing. He says this means that she's ready to move on. She throws a picture of Jonathan in the trash and says that he belongs with Lizzie now. Remy asks her where she belongs and she kisses him. He pushes her off and tells her that he doesn't want her unless 'it's about me.' Right now, it's only about Jonathan. Tammy is put off and tells him she doesn't need his help. He helps her pack anyway.

    Jonathan is at the lighthouse getting drunk when Lizzie finds him. He tells her to go away but she's already figured out what's happened. He tells her to go home but she tells him that he is her home. She says that they have another chance at a family with their daughter and they can tell her all about Reva. What Reva did tonight was about 'giving up for the sake of love.' Jonathan breaks down and tells her 'it sucks' before laying his head on her lap. She promises him that she and the baby will always be there to look after him.

    Billy props up at the bar and begins to drink. 'I don't want to remember her face, her name or who I am.' Soon Josh and Cassie come to find him drinking. Josh instantly starts arguing with him and imagines that Reva has left Billy because he's fallen off the wagon. Billy tells his brother that he doesn't know anything. She's gone now and that's the way she wants it. He decides to call Reva but Billy insists that it doesn't matter anymore and keeps saying that 'it's too late.' Josh tries calling Reva who has gotten back in the car and started it up again as the phone begins to ring. She lets it go for awhile but it doesn't stop so she reluctantly answers it. When she answers, he berates her for abandoning Billy and tells her that he's drinking again. She's horrified but insists that she can't help him; she's already gone. 'You're his brother; you have to take care of him.' But Josh insists that he can't pull him out of this, he needs her. Reva refuses again and he tells her that she only cares about herself and she can go 'straight to hell' before hanging up. Reva tries to tell herself that one day, he will understand and starts the car again. Billy tells Josh that he'll find out what's happening soon enough, but that he has to leave him 'forever.' Cassie tries to tell Billy that they will help him and look after him, but he can only say again that it's too late.

    They leave him and he continues drinking until Reva appears. For a moment, he thinks she's a hallucination, but she's real. She tells him that she can't leave him in his condition and will hold on for a few more days, but makes him promise: No more booze and he has to find someone to love him other than her. She gets ready to drive him home but collapses on the floor.

    Next on GL: Josh wants to take Cassie away from Springfield. Olivia and Ava have plans for each other. It may be over for Reva anyway.

    I missed yesterdays so I didn't get to see it. I believe this is how it's going to play out from here. Reva is not going to wake up this time, so they have to go to the hospital. Josh and Cassie are getting ready to go out of the town, when Billy or either Jon is going to call him telling him about Cassie. It still won't be until next week before he knows that Reva has cancer and is going to die. I'm thinking that me the way it ends, I just want it to end. Cassie and Josh together is nasty nasty nasty. I would never sleep with my sister's husband. Kissing cousin should not be together, but neither should Jon and Liz. They are just wrong for each other and she is just a skank no matter how you say. I do not like Liz and I wish they would get rid of her and this new Cassie. The old Cassie would have never done that, well you can't say that she did get involved with Richard, but she would have gotten involved with Josh. Man I wanted to see that party, but I forgot to turn off my VCR. I hope everything comes out on Friday and they don't prolong it any further.

    I feel that the writers need to close this story line because there is no man that wouldn't want to be with his wife if she going to die.I don't remember reading that Reva was going to leave the show. Have someone heard that please write me back.I want to know what wrong with story. There no way that cassie need to be with josh.She isn't Reva, she could never replace Reva. No matter what.Jon need to found his self and liz is not it.I wish they can find away for him to be with Tammy.maybe she not cassie child.How cool is that.(lol)

    Reva and Josh belong together, I must say it looks like this is really the end for Reva. I've been watching it for 23 years and she has come and gone. She has been off a bridge before when Josh fell in love with Harley so who is to say. I just hate this Cassie, she just doesn't do it. Please lets just get it over. I'm really sad for Josh and Reva I wish they could find Peace hint hint Writers!!!! I've been around a long time!

    opting not to renew Kim's contract is suicide for GL. The problem is not Kim ,it's the script. If Reva goes so do I.

    I as well as all my friends are with the lady that posted "If Reva goes, I go". I've been watching ever since I can remember and I've always loved Reva. So you take her you take ratings and that probably doesn't matter but I had to voice my opinion, well fact!!

    Posted by CBSoapKing at Thursday, October 26 2006 10:03 AM

    Well maybe you should check GL's recent ratings and compared it to Y&R or B&B (for heavens sake). I too have liked Reva's character for a long time but something behind the scenes happened about a year ago that sent this once great soap to the basement. Many actors quit and I began seeing too much of Reva - and Billy. Even a near sweep at the recent Daytime Emmys doesn't seem to help things.

    Okay so Reva did not do anything yet...now is the time for something good to happen for her. If Lizzie does not know the truth about Reva..and Jonathan is drunk he may say something about the cancer and as much as I like Lizzie..she will blab it to someone..so Josh and Cassie will find out. I still think something will happen to Lizzies Baby and that is what will save Reva. And that bond will draw Reva and Jonathan closer than ever and once he knows that she is okay that will be when he will go away with Tammy (since they are both leaving anyway). I really pray that Cassie will feel like dirt...but Josh and Reva will get back together. What does everyone else think?

    All I want to really say is I am not sure what they are doing with Reva but She is one of my favorites on the show so whatever it is I hope it is not to land her off the show.

    this is how I think it will go down - Reva will not die due to being able to use some kinda transplant from Lizzie's baby which will be premature and probably will not survive. there has to be a storyline that proves Jon & Tammy are not related, otherwise that is just too creepy. Josh & Cassie will not last once they discover the truth about Reva's illness.

    Posted by TammyP at Thursday, October 26 2006 11:44 AM

    Today I feel like something has happened in my family and I'm just waiting for the dime to drop. I sure hope I don't have to go through the weekend feeling this way. I feel like if Reva leaves by death something will be missing that will never be replaced. With Jonathan departing and Tammy the Lewis clan will all but die. It will be left up to the Coopers to carry on, which will never be the same. So sad in Dallas Texas.......
