    Money Grows on Trees.

    Monday, April 06 2009
    The Spauldings have a dinner for Phillip, Shayne comes clean with Edmund, Child Protective Services call Mallet and Marina and Blake gets a new job.

    Bill stands outside of the mansion waiting for Lizzie. When she appears, he tells her how perfect she is. She thinks he's corny, but in a wonderful way. He asks her out bowling. She agrees. This will make three dates; that means sex at the end. He leaps up the garden path to her. She's never seen him move that fast. He tells her they should wait until they've had ten dates. She doubts he could last that long. "I have willpower," he claims. She tries challenging it by kissing him. "I have to go home and practice bowling," he announces. She teases him with a kiss and he runs off.

    Shayne and Dinah are in bed. She wakes up and he tells her how great he feels. She giggles. They kiss. She needs to get to work but he's having trouble letting her go. He asks her to come back in three hours.

    At home, Mallet is trying to get the baby to burp when he gets a call from Child Protective Services. He explains to Marina that they are reviewing the adoption. She worries that they could have found out how he got the baby. He claims there is nothing to worry about. Marina assumes that they are just checking up and tries telling herself that they have nothing to worry about.

    Dinah goes to Company for coffee. She runs into Marina who tells her about the call that she and Mallet got. Dinah urges her not to worry and runs off.

    Dinah goes to see Mallet at the station. She reminds him that Child Services have no jurisdiction over Bosnia. He doesn't want her to get into trouble. She doesn't want him to lose his baby. He won't let that happen.

    At the mansion, Beth gives Hilda some instructions for a family dinner. Phillip comes down the stairs and she explains that it will be nice to have a family gathering while they still can. They decide to invite Bill just to annoy Alan. When Beth leaves him alone, Blake arrives. He asks her how her kids are. "You killed their father," she says. He apologizes. She hates that he's alive and hopes he rots in jail.

    At home, Natalia is surprised to find Olivia is already awake and eager to help her plan her wedding. Nat hasn't really thought about the details. Olivia takes her to the dress shop. Nat tries on a dress. Olivia tells her how beautiful she is. Nat thought that marrying Gus would be the only time; she never expected to meet anyone else who would make her want to go through it again. "I don't know how to thank you for all this," she admits. Beth calls and invites Olivia and Emma to the family dinner. She agrees to come for a little while.

    As Alan walks the grounds, he discovers the bag full of money. Hilda finds him with the bag. He claims he's gardening. When she leaves, he hangs out in the garden until Lizzie approaches him. He says that he's been thinking of how brave she was to get rid of Grady. She explains that she threw money at him and he went away.

    In the mansion, Beth invites Lizzie to Phillip's dinner. "This is like the last supper," Lizzie snipes.

    Phillip walks outside and invites his father to the dinner. Alan tells him he's gained a new perspective on things after what he found during his walk today.

    Edmund runs into Shayne at Cedars. They look at Reva's baby. Edmund apologizes for how he broke the news. Shayne appreciated his honesty and Edmund is grateful that he's found someone he can trust. "I'm responsible for Lara's death," Shayne confesses. He was in charge of clearing the minefield where she died. There are no excuses for what he did. Hearing about her pregnancy almost destroyed him, but he's finally come to a place where he can see a future for himself. "It must have been hard to keep that inside all this time," Edmund says through gritted teeth.

    Blake is at Company talking to Marina. She complains about how she has ten jobs but no work, just a lot of free time. Marina asks her if she would be interested in a management position and hands her an apron. "I don't know how to be a waitress," Blake says. Marina wants her to be a manager.

    Dinah meets Shayne at Cedars. They go to see his little brother and he tells her that he may be wondering about what sort of father he would have been, but he isn't falling apart. She knows that he's strong.

    At the mansion, Lizzie tells Bill what a freak show her family dinner will be. Alan is acting weirder than usual and she's sure something is up. Emma runs into the dining room and jumps into Phillip's arms. Olivia follows her in. Everyone sits around the table until Alan arrives and announces he stumbled on something. He pours the cash on the table. "I think there's enough there for all of us," he says with a smile. Everyone stares. Emma's impressed. Hilda comes in and Alan offers her some cash and asks that the soup be brought in.

    Emma sits outside. She's sad that her father may be going away. Olivia promises her that they will be okay. Emma worries that Natalia will leave after she marries Frank. Olivia explains that married people need their privacy and it's what she wants. Emma doubts that; she's seen her crying and suggests that she doesn't want to marry Frank at all.

    Lizzie is panicking that her grandfather is toying with her. Bill tells her they need to keep building their moat and suggests they go bowling. She warns him that she will take him down.

    Alan and Phillip sit at the table alone. "I guess money really does grow on trees around here," Phillip says. Alan tells him that he's been beaten; he's already pieced together what Phillip did to Grady and refuses to let him stick around and hurt Lizzie.

    Edmund goes to Shayne's apartment. He picks up the music box and sadly winds it. As he stands there, he hears Shayne and Dinah coming in. They're surprised to find him there. He leaves.

    Next on Guiding Light:

    Alan goes to see the judge in Phillip's case.

    Phillip's verdict comes down.

    Shayne tries to convince his father that Edmund has changed.

    Edmund starts to crack.

    Can anyone out there tell me why on earth they would take a much loved person like Coop off the program but yet leave someone that serves very little purpose such as Blake?? There is no way that the love the viewers had for Coop did not out weight the feelings about Blake! Have to admit that I have changed my mind about Shayne, did not like him at all when he first came on the show, but he and Dinah are too cute together. Edmond is back, you could see it in his eyes today, hate that because I rather liked the good version!!

    Why is it that everyone who seems to have issues with Phillip being back in town have dirty hands themselves?

    Posted by GLandWT at Monday, April 06 2009 03:22 PM

    Phillip would have done better leaving the money in his vehicle. Grady has been gone how long? Today, Alan and the maid decide to take a stroll where the money (one million dollars)just happened to be. Unbelievable!

    Shayne better watch his back. I don't think I would have told Edmund that I was to blame for Lara's death. Edmund is capable of doing anything - and Shayne has become his number one enemy.

    Ok, how did Child Protective Services get involved with the baby all of a sudden? Who called them? Seems like this s/l is going to come to an end real fast. Does anyone think Marina will hook up with Shayne once she knows the baby is his? Would she want Dinah to have the baby, don't think so. Blake just happens to walk into Company and get a job???? What's up with that? Alan finds the money, you go Alan!! Phillip's trial, hummmmm, what will happen to him? Is this just another way to let Phillip leave the show? Sure hope not. And, Edmund, looks like the bad boy is coming back. Look out S/F here comes the dark prince once again. Maybe that is what G/L needs, some action from Eddie. Dinah and Shayne together - ok with me. Did Lizzie really eat dinner with her hat on?

    I agree about Blake. Especially when they had a good idea that the show was going to be canceled. Some parts of this show are getting better now that it's going to end. ugh! Hate that. Still a lot of dumb stuff tho:-( Um If Marina owns the Company now why don't the rest of her family move back in there? Omg! End the Olivia & Nat story line a be done with it. We know that it's going to happen & have known it for a long time. Get the pain overwith. I hate watching them. Poor Frank

    I hope that people won't keep posting just because the show is going to end. We maybe can have a little ray of hope? Maybe another station but it won't be a major network. who knows.

    Maybey Alan called CPS? That is the only person I could think of that would want to hurt the Coopers.Or a disatisfied customer at the resturant.I guess they had to find Blake something to do. I realy hope they are not setting things up for Philip to leave.

    Maybe someone from the restaurant called child protective services after watching Marina carrying little Henry around that hot kitchen cooking burgers and such and then serving the people with hot food in one hand and little Henry in the other. I thought in real life that would be a very dangerous thing to do.

    I love GL but if Fridays show is any example it sure explains why they are cancelling.
    How crazy is it that Dinah is sueing herself. Come on Get real here!!!!!!
    These s/ls getting more stupid as the days go on.
    I don't want the show to cancel but I certainly don't want them throwing just anything at us either!!!!

    That mirror scene between Olivia and Natalia! Wow! Smokin' hot! As were Dinah and Shayne. Get these two a bed already. I love how sweet Phillip and Emma are together and how changed is Olivia that she consented to bring Emma to the dinner?
