    Wanna See A Dead Body?

    Wednesday, June 10 2009
    Olivia's frustrated, Rafe feels dejected, Reva's house is vandalized and Edmund's body is gone.

    Olivia calls Natalia and leaves her a message, telling her what a good time she had with her yesterday. She goes to Company and interrupts Blake while she reads a romance novel. Olivia orders some coffee and Blake admits that she's thinking of going back to writing. When Olivia wanders off, Frank comes in and Blake tells him something is off with her.

    Rafe and Natalia are meeting with his parole officer. He doesn't say much. His mother explains that he's been doing volunteer work and meeting with his mentor. The officer reminds them that the parole mandates that he be employed. When they walk out, Nat is disappointed that her son didn't try harder in the interview. She orders him to show his parole officer that he has potential. Rafe isn't sure he does.

    Natalia walks into Company. Frank asks her how the hearing went. She tells him that Rafe doesn't seem to care about anything and now he's drifted off. She worries that he'll do something stupid. Frank offers to help her find him.

    Natalia bumps into Matt at the minimart. They talk about Rafe and he tries to reassure her. She calls her son and leaves him a message to say that she's angry.

    Rafe arrives at the bar. As he orders a beer, Frank surprises him. Rafe complains about how he can't even get a job interview. Natalia stands in the doorway and listens while Frank tries to reassure him. She walks over and decides to join them for a drink.

    Josh is jogging in the park. He stops and sits down with Marina. They talk about Shayne and Josh admits that Edmund seems to be causing more pain dead than he did when he was alive.

    Olivia tries to start her car. When it's not working, she pops the hood just as Josh arrives. He offers to help. "I fixed a stroller yesterday. Maybe I'm on a roll," he says. They engage in a lot of mechanical double entendres and then begin kissing. She pulls away and apologizes. "But you did it so well," he says. He teases her and offers to fix her car. After he does, she drives off.

    Shayne goes to Cross Creek for lunch with his mother. As they begin talking about the case against her, she asks him what he wants. He wants to talk about confessing. Shayne blames himself for Edmund's death because he brought him back to town. Although he believes his mother is innocent, he wouldn't blame her if she did it. A bit of her wonders if he is guilty too.

    Jeffrey drops in to see Dinah at WSPR. They begin talking about murder theories and he wonders if Mallet is leaving someone off the list. Someone who happens to be his ex and has a history of blaming other people; someone like Dinah who let her own brother be blamed for Lizzie's kidnapping. "You do not come to my place of business and push me around," she warns. He continues questioning her and she thinks he's crazy. "Who are you? Is this your new self? I don't believe that people can change," he says. While he continues confronting her. Shayne arrives and stands up for her. He claims that he trusts Dinah with his life. Jeffrey doesn't trust anyone. He walks off.

    Jeffrey calls Josh and asks him if he wants to come and see a dead body. Josh isn't busy so he goes to the morgue to see him. The mortician comes out and tells them that they can't find the body. "I'm afraid there was a misunderstanding," he explains. Edmund was cremated that morning.

    Marina and the baby go to Cross Creek to see Reva and ask her for a walk. They stroll away to the park.

    Shayne brings Dinah outside and shows her a pair of bikes. She talks about how a clown taught her to ride and then they discuss her backside. They ride around town and he thanks her for being the only uncomplicated part of his life. They ride up to Marina and Reva and chat. The topic turns to Edmund again. Shayne wants to look for another distraction.

    Olivia goes home and does yoga to relax. It's not working. She rushes off to the lingerie store. As she looks around, Blake surprises her. "A girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do," Blake tells her.

    Dinah is sneaking around the evidence barn when a cop catches her. She claims that she is just doing journalistic work. When he walks off, she pulls out a Molotov cocktail.

    Reva goes home and catches vandals attacking her house. She rushes to the station and begins ranting to Mallet about it. They painted 'murderer' on her house. After they argue, he offers to put her under protective watch.

    Next on Guiding Light:

    Dinah contemplates setting a fire.

    "What if that body wasn't his?" Jeffrey wonders to Josh.

    Reva asks Mallet what would happen if she confessed.

    I have to agree 3Puppies. The show was a total snooze today.

    The actor who played Coop is go to Y&R. From the worst soap in ratings to the best and just in time. When are all the old characters coming back to GL?? They’re running out of time.

    ITA with you 3Puppies. I haven't watched in a few days and again, all I have are questions:

    Why didn't Marina hire Rafe? She hired Cyrus.
    Why won't Alan take Rafe on at Spaulding/Lewis Enterprise or hire him as his personal chauffeur/butler/gardner, etc.?

    GL, what are you doing to Dinah's character? She thought for a moment Shayne might have killed Edmund; why are you making it look as if she's guilty? BTW, what is she doing?

    How long has Edmund been dead?
    Who gave the consent to have Edmund's body created?
    When Reva told Shayne she would handle the arrangements for Edmund, what did she mean?
    What did Reva mean when she told Shayne ..."after a day in jail"... How long was she in jail?

    Today, Marina told Josh Baby Henry is 9 months old. Reva's baby was born the third day of April - making him 2 months old. Most of the times, Colin looks larger than Henry. When Marina and Reva met (the day Edmund supposedly was killed) Reva said Henry looked like Shayne when he was a baby. She made reference to Henry's eyes. Shayne said Henry has Lara's eyes...

    Wow, you are getting like me. Questions, questions, all the time but NO answers. Every single one of your questions have been mine as well. Doesn't anyone think the fans know ages, gender, married, divorced, and etc. I really like the fact that Shayne (should be about 19) ia dating Dinah (should be about 30) and James, I don't even want to go there. Hope they clean up a lot of the stories before they go off the air. I would love to see GL continue but it sure doesn't look like that is going to happen.

    SPD is the most unprofessional department in the history of police departments. Or, is it just Mallet? Don't these writers at least watch cop or forensic shows since they clearly do no research whatsoever??? Babysitting on the job? Crime scene evidence on the kitchen table? (Can you say, "chain of evidence"?) Lawyers taking prints weeks after the crime? Did the cops not bother with this? Oh, I'm sorry...the cop was Mallet. Of course, he didn't. A sixth grader could do a better job with this wonder the show going off the air. I realize that yes, it is a soap opera...but, if the characters are supposed to have a particular profession, wouldn't it make sense to be remotely realistic in the portrayal? JMO

    Earthmom, I was thinking the something? I don't think that crime investigators can take crime evidence home, Like Mallet did. That would contaminate the evidence. A lawyer would have that piece of evidence thrown out of the case.

    3 Puppies, ITA with you on all 7 points.

    Hi 3Puppies, Mom of 6,Julien, Vanillahere,GlandWT,and everyone else...

    I was eally upset with Olivia kissing Josh today. I guess she's just feeling a little lonely right now but Nat is the love of her life right now and I'm sure she realize that. I just hope she doesn't give in to Josh. Just hold on Olivia, you promised Nat you would wait for her and that she's worth waithg for. I hope that's true as it is a truy great storyline. True love story for sure.

    Damn, please don't throw away Octalia now. It took so long to get into it and it seems like they are letting it die without a fight.
