    I Don't Really Like Blindfolds Anymore.

    Friday, April 24 2009
    Bill takes Lizzie away, Olivia and Natalia have dinner, the nun tells Dinah about Lara and the Coopers celebrate the adoption.

    Alan shows up at Cedars and asks Lillian if she's seen Lizzie. She says he's still away with Bill. He slips off to call around but decides he'll give her some more time to call him back.

    Olivia can hardly believe that she is sitting in church with Natalia. Nat is sure that God still loves her and wants her to be happy. She's glad that, even if Rafe is gone, she still has the rest of her family with her. Olivia wonders what happens next. "We should take some time and think about it," Nat says. Emma walks up and tells them that she's hungry. They leave for spaghetti.

    They go over to Towers. The women are awkward. Reading the menu, they admit how strange they feel. Stumbling over their words, they start to laugh. When Emma joins them, she tells them they should be holding hands... to say grace. They do so and then start talking business, dry cleaning and money. Emma announces that her friend asked her over to spend the night. Her mother agrees to let her go. Emma runs off to be with her friend. When dinner ends, Natalia offers to take Olivia home. Alan walks in and asks who Emma left with. Olivia tells her that she'll be fine. Alan worries. Natalia asks him if he's alright. He's not. He explains that his son is having a psychiatric evaluation. That sounds like a good idea to Olivia. He walks away. "Well, that was nice," Natalia says.

    Natalia walks Olivia to her door. "Do you want to come in?" Olivia asks. Nat says that they had a nice normal night and if she comes in, that will change. Holding hands, they say goodnight and Olivia closes the door. Both women smile.

    "I don't really like blindfolds anymore," Lizzie reminds Bill as he takes her outside. When he takes the blindfold off, he reveals a tropical pool and tells her they have a busy day ahead of them. They get changed and sit by the pool until a car comes to take Lizzie to a spa. After they have their massages, he teases her about how good his was and she pushes him into the pool. He swims around and then comes up with a water pistol and sprays her. She relaxes and he promises her that she will be having her childhood tomorrow. They sit by the pool and tease each other. He promises that it won't be long until they get to be adults together.

    Mallet and Marina are taking pictures with Henry. He's still worried that their adoption problems aren't over but she assures him it's been taken care of.

    Marina and Mallet head over to the courthouse where Frank and Buzz are waiting for them. They tell her that they can already feel that the baby will be a Cooper for life. The judge reviews their case and says that it looks like Henry has a very safe and happy home. She calls the one witness they have to the stand. Clarice, the Child Protection agent, comes up and sits down. The judge asks her why her home study report has disappeared. Clarice tells her that she has no objections to the adoption. The judge declares the adoption final and congratulates the family. They clap and laugh in relief.

    Marina corners Clarice in the hall and thanks her. "You gave me no choice. You blackmailed me to keep my mouth shut," she says. Marina admits that she might not be the best cop, but she is going to be a good mother and that's all that matters.

    The Coopers go home with the baby and toast to him. They want him to always have good kite flying weather and feel safe there. Marina says that nothing has brought her greater joy than this baby. She's decided to take an official leave from the force. All she cares about now is being a good mother. They toast. As they snap pictures of the baby, Buzz asks Frank if he invited Nat. He tells his father that he and Nat still feel like a family and he's sure it's just a matter of time until they are. Meanwhile, Marina explains to Mallet that her heart just isn't into being a good cop right now.

    In Bosnia, Dinah accuses the nun of trying to extort money from her and trying to exploit Lara's death. The nun explains that she took care of the baby herself. They never knew who the father was. Dinah stares over at Shayne as he weeps at Lara's grave. The nun explains how she got to know Lara and how her baby was born as she died. Dinah is still skeptical. Shayne walks over to them. The nun walks off and he asks Dinah why she seems frazzled. She claims she's just worried about him. Evasively, she tells him about hope but he says there was no silver lining in what happened to him. He's said all he came here to say and is ready to go back. She asks for a few minutes alone with the sister. When Dinah walks over to the nun, she tells her that she is going to dig into what she said to find out if it's true.

    As they sit and have a picnic. He tells her that a great weight has been lifted off of him. He finally feels like he is ready to move on and that's because of her. They kiss and nap. "I don't know what to do. I just know I can't say anything till I know it's true," she says to herself.

    Next on Guiding Light:

    Bill reveals that he's taken Lizzie to Orlando.

    The Spauldings follow Lizzie to Florida.

    Dinah tells Remy that there could be a problem with the adoption.

    Doris tells Frank that Natalia has the hots for Olivia.

    Dinah better tell Shayne about the baby or he will dump her when he finds out and then finds out she knew. If I were her I would have said something to him immediately.
    If I was Marina I may have done the same thing, I can understand her not wanting to lose the baby. To bad the celebration is going to be short lived.

    I hate that they are dragging the church into this gay SL. That’s disgusting! You can’t just pick and choose the rules of the Bible you want to live by and say it’s ok to break the ones you don’t like.

    The nun that stated she cared for Lara's baby seemed so distraught. Dinah kind of annoyed me by not telling Shayne what the sister had told her. Truth or false, he has a right to know. When he does find out, he will be furious with Dinah for not telling him. I just hope they don't ditch this s/l if they are cancelled. That would be terrible. Marina's actions with little Henry today seemed just a little rough when she ripped his hat off. What was with the hat on the hat and then back on? He is adorable and smiles all the time. He belongs with his daddy if his daddy wants him. Adoption or not the bio-father has rights. If I am not mistaken it takes a full year for the legalities are done. Bill and Lizzie seemed like it was just fill-in time. Cute but with no substance. Hope next week is good. Have a nice weekend everyone.

    maybe they are bringing the church into it to show that God loves us no matter who we are, no matter who we love. He just wants us to LOVE ONE ANOTHER. God doesn't love those of us who marry/love the opposite sex any more than He loves those who marry/love the same sex. There is too much hatred in this world as it is. As long as people Love, that's all that matters.

    Well said bishprincess.

    Did anyone else read that Danny Santos is coming back in May. I just loved him and Michelle. I don't know for sure if Michelle is coming back or not. I can't wait. It is great having some of the characters of the past coming back. Just shout it out - Hooray!!!

    Hello everyone What a great Otalia day. I can see how much these two love and care for one another. I don't think that part in the church was so bad. It was showing that no matter what your prefrance is GOD loves you for who you are and not what you are. I think that was the best scene of the day. I just hope the writers keep up w\ this Love story.

    3Puppies ITA I am glad that they are bring some of the old actors back. Danny Santos is a Hottie. I hope they bring Michelle back w\ him. Maybe that will help GL's ratings go up and maybe CBS will keep it on air.

    Another great episode on GL today!!!!

    I can't wait to see how everything plays out with Dinah/Shayne/Mallet/Marina!! This is getting really good!

    Loved Olivia and Natalia's scenes as well today. It made me laugh to see how Natalia dealt with Alan. Hopefully he won't be interfering with Otalia.

    Bill and Lizzie are too cute for words. Hope Alan leaves them alone as well but probably not!

    I don't mean to come off like I hate gays I have some in my family but I do think you are going overboard with this thing with Olivia and Natalia. You don't just wake up one morning and decide that you want to be gay, are you saying that two women can't be friends without falling in love with each other? how crazy is that! I'm sick of Bill and Lizzie, time to move on.

    Another great day for Guiding Light. This show just gets better and better every day. Like others have stated on here, I believe the scene in the church was to clarify that God loves all of us. No matter what you believe or how you interpret the Bible, the main focus is love, love for God and God's love for you. I support this storyline and Guiding Light.
