    I've Seen Bigger Smiles at Funerals.

    Tuesday, April 14 2009
    Olivia makes a confession to Natalia, Buzz expresses his doubts to Frank and Reva battles Edmund.

    Olivia is packing her stuff to move out. She wants to be out of the way for Frank. When Nat sees a plate that Emma made for them, Olivia tells her to keep it. Natalia tells her how much she is going to miss their time together. They're awkward and Nat rushes off. A moving man looks in and takes a box. "It must be hard to lose such a nice place," he says.

    Buzz jokingly fakes a heart attack after Frank tells him that he and Natalia are getting married today. He hugs his son, thrilled to see him happy. Frank is going to need a best man and asks his father. Natalia arrives and they begin talking about honeymoon plans. Buzz wants them to go to Greece. Frank wants to go to a resort. Natalia wants to stay here for now so she can look out for Olivia and the kids. When Frank goes upstairs, Buzz tells Nat that he's seen bigger smiles than hers at funerals. She claims that she's feeling dazed and is crazy about his son.

    At Cedars, Josh and Jeffrey are hoping that Shayne will be okay following his attack. A nurse rushes over and tells Jeffrey to come with her. They discover that the baby is gone. They run down the hall to Reva's room and discover that she is gone too. They call the cops. Both of them are sure that Edmund has Reva and the baby. Josh tries to stop Jeffrey from freaking out.

    At Cross Creek, Edmund grabs the baby. "Luckily you won't have to grow up in this hideous place with wooden bears and wagon wheels and commemorative plates," he says with a smirk. When he opens the door, Reva is standing there gasping and demanding her baby back. She tells him that she saw him on her webcam and came running. He laughs when she threatens to send him to prison. She falls on the floor crying. He admits that he should just punish Shayne but this is sweeter. "I'm going to rob his family the way he robbed mine," he says, telling her that her son is nothing but a murderer. As he rants at her about his loss, threatening to raise the child on all of the hate he has for her, she stabs him in the neck with a needle. He collapses, gasping that he did this for Lara. She tells him that he did this because he can't help himself. She says that a man like him doesn't deserve love; all he deserves is nothing.

    Natalia goes to the church and lights a candle before she and Frank meet with Father Ray. The priest is happy for them but wonders if this is a little too sudden. He offers to try and re-arrange his schedule so he can perform the ceremony. He asks Frank what marriage means to him. Frank says that she's his family. "You're both ready to do that? Commit to each other forsaking all others?" the priest asks. He thinks they need to be open and honest. Nat asks what she should do if feelings come along that she doesn't understand. The priest knows she has strong values and urges her to believe in them. She feels like Frank understands her. He tells them that Olivia has coached him through the relationship, suggesting things and looking out for them.

    Olivia goes over to the Cooper house. She asks Buzz why he doesn't seem happier. He thinks that his son and Nat are moving too fast. She talks about what a privilege it has been to know Nat. Buzz has never seen her be so sentimental. She says that Nat has brought out the best in her. Buzz says Natalia seems awfully nervous. Olivia insists that this is what everyone wants.

    Olivia goes to Gus' grave. When he gave her his heart, it's like she could feel everything he felt for Natalia. Now she has this big love and she doesn't know what to do with it. They fought at first but now they have a happy family. After all of the breakups she's had, she thinks that letting Nat go may be the only one she's done right. Her heart may be healthy, but it feels like she just broke it. She used to mock Natalia all the time for her 'eternal chipperness' but she just envied her. Now she is ready to watch her walk away. "I have finally learned to put someone else first," she says. She cries knowing that she is about to give up the one person she would give anything for. When she turns her head, she sees Natalia standing there. Olivia jumps up. She wants to say goodbye to everything they've had since Gus died. Natalia came to say goodbye too. "We're doing the right thing. It's the best thing for everyone," she says. Olivia cries and says that's important. She tells her to go and try on her dress. She begs her to go. Natalia asks her why she is so upset. "I'm in love with you!" Olivia cries.

    Josh arrives at Cross Creek after getting a message from Reva. He asks her what she did to Edmund. Jeffrey arrives later, after Edmund has been hidden, and Reva explains some of what she did. She and Josh dissuade him from sending an APB out on Edmund and claim that they talked him into leaving town. Jeffrey swallows this and takes the baby from her arms. As he steps away, Reva cries and tells Josh that she can't lie to her husband. Josh tells her she has to. If Jeffery finds Edmund, he'll kill him and the baby will be left with a sick mother and no father. Josh offers to deal with Edmund, he already has a plan. He calls Roc.

    When Frank gets home, he can see that his father is tense. Buzz asks him if he loves Natalia enough to let her go. Frank is bewildered. Buzz worries that Nat is trying to please other people instead of herself and suggests that they are rushing and she may feel more like she owes him than loves him. Frank asks if he thinks he is just incapable of being loved. He rants at his father and insists that this is his shot at true love. "You just couldn't be happy for me?" Frank asks in disbelief.

    Jeffrey brings the baby back to Cedars to get checked out.

    Next on Guiding Light:

    Edmund tells Josh he knows where he stands on the day of reckoning.

    Roc promises to make Edmund wish he were dead.

    Olivia tells Natalia that she wants her to have what she deserves and she can't give that to her.

    Olivia watches as Natalia walks down the aisle.

    I am glad Reva got the baby back and they didn't drag it out to long. I just hope they don't let her die, it would be a shame for her to go out this way. I didn't see where she got the needle from, if they showed it I guess I missed it. Does anyone know where she got it?

    I just hate the Oliver and Nat story line. But I'm afraid Nat won't marry Frank, I hope he doesn't get dumped.

    I feel sorry for Frank. He is such a good guy: reliable, honest, loyal. It's a shame that he can't just find a nice woman who will love him for who he is. It's plain so see where the writers are headed with the Natalia/Olivia storyline, and it is just a waste of two good characters. Olivia has just been filling space on the show for a long time now with no real storylines. I guess since they couldn't find another male character for her to screw over, they picked a woman. That's about the only thing she hasn't tried yet.

    Poor Frank. Has anyone wondered how they are going to write Nat out of the story when she goes on maternity leave? She'll probably leave Frank at the altar and something to do with her conscience will make her leave town. They should bring back...I forget her name but she was a red head who was with him and I think she might a been a stripper or something. I think that she had been doing illegal things too. It was so long ago I don't remember. I felt bad for him when he was arguing with his farther.

    I was so happy that Reva got her baby back and was able to hold him. The actors that play Reva and Edmund were wonderful today. For some reason I have a feeling that her not telling Jeffery about what she did to Edmund is going to make him think that she still has feelings for Josh and it's going to break them up. I hope not because I love them together.

    And Colin is in third place for earliest kidnapping. (At least as far as I know.) Michelle's daughter Hope(?) was first by being kidnapped right after she was born, Phillip was second when he was switched at the hospital, and now Colin's third by being a couple days old.

    I would like to see where this is going with Edmund. Roc is Jeffrey's friend/colleague, yet he is doing a favor for Josh. I bet this is going to bring about a riff between Reva/Jeffrey/Josh. Before Reva stuck Edmund with the needle, I thought she was calling Jeffrey on her phone (which she did); I guess the needle was in her other pocket. That scene was priceless - in fact, the whole cabin scene was great. Edmund plays his part so well. What a mother wouldn't do for her baby (children). Go Reva! It took a sick woman to rescue her baby. So very glad the baby is okay. I do feel sorry for Edmund - to lose a daughter you never knew you had along with a grandchild. I can't begin to imagine how one would feel; nevertheless, I do hope before GL is cancelled, Edmund can redeem himself.
    Hi 3Puppies, Julien, Mom6, Gossipqueen, Vanillahere, Sunflower23, and all. I have to go a meeting - will catch you again on tomorrow. Have a great evening.

    Buzz is not as dumb as I once thought he was. Sorry, I can't say the same for Frank. Love has him blind. I wish GL would have gone in another direction with Gus's heart thing. Cassie love for Richard was far greater than Gus's love for Natalia and Rick didn't fall in love with Cassie. I know they are all different individuals, but I could have understood Rick falling in love with Cassie far better than Olivia falling in love with Natalia.

    I have stated many times how much I hate this s/l with Olivia and Nat. But, today was interesting. Olivia is crying her eyes out about her big LOVE for Nat and yet when she told her it didn't look like Nat understood what Olivia meant. She told Father Santos about her unknown/not understanding feelings but I still don't think Nat loves Olivia in the same way as Olivia loves her. "O" needs a MAN. Poor Frank, left out one more time. Will Nat run away after she understands what Olivia means? (because of real life pregnancy) Does anyone know if Michelle Bauer(Santos) is still coming back? If the show being cancelled I just wondered.

    Oh well, at least soon they should be able to end this story line of Olivia & Nat. Looks like they will hook up just like we thought! What a waste. They could of saved us the months of torment of already knowing how this would end. At least now we won't have to see Olivia bawling & sniffling & pining away for Natalia everyday. She can be happy & turn back into the witch she once was. Go Reva. Surely Josh isn't going to have Edmund killed. Wow. they have way to many s/l to clear up before the cancellation sure hope they end things. Better yet. DON'T CANCEL GL!!!

    Today's show was phenominal!! Olivia was the best part of the day, then Reva, then Frank. Did he give a great peformance or what!?! It's really a shame that he still isn't gonna have his chance at love. I do feel sorry for him. When he went on and on about the Coop clan and how everybody has found love several times except him. Maybe him and Blake can get together. She's been all alone since Ross and he's been alone.....forever!!!! I can't wait to see what happens tomorrow.

    Reva was the best today. I love Kim Zimmer!!! I always have. She has been kind of boring lately but today she was like the old Reva again. I really hope she doesn't die. Edmond is about to be off the hook!! He is really back in full effect! Shayne has unleashed the dragon! Can't wait to see where this sl goes.

    I hate to see Guiding Light go off the air. I remember when I was a little girl and visited my grandmother, I would listen to GL on the radio with her. She listened to it every day.I started watching it on TV in 1962 until 1972 and again in 1992 until now (I was teaching school during the 20 year gap). If I am going to be gone during the day I always make sure the VCR is ready to go. Good luck to all the wonderful people who have given so much time and talent through the years!

    What an awesome episode! I can't wait for tomorrow! I am obsessed with the Nat/Olivia story line! It's the best story line on tv! So glad Reva saved Colin. What a great acting job that was too!
