    He Has No Rules.

    Friday, June 12 2009
    Rafe tries to figure out what's happening, Beth finds out how long James could go away for and Frank gets a home of his own.

    Ashlee and Christina are shocked to see Daisy mopping the floor. They invite her to the jail to see James. She looks for excuses but Buzz thinks she should go. After they leave, Frank comes through with his boxes. He's been looking for Rafe to help him move.

    Matt helps Frank pack up his stuff. Frank's sure his family is relieved to get rid of him. After they get the boxes into his new place, they have a beer and Matt tells him that they should go cruising after he settles in. Frank tries calling Rafe over for help.

    Ashlee and Christina go to visit James. He confesses his guilt. They want to know if the stolen money paid for their trip to Florida. It didn't. They return to Company and tell Daisy about their visit and then tease her for bringing James cake.

    Rick walks in on Bill and Lizzie while they make out in the office. He needs some help from the Spauldings and doesn't know who else to turn to. After drinking a glass of water and acting melodramatic, he tells them that he needs them to look after the kids' games at the barbecue.

    At The Beacon, Phillip offers to go and see James with Beth. She lashes out at him for what he's done to their son and refuses to make things any easier for him. After she storms off, he hangs out in the hall until Emma wanders over to him and invites him in. They hug and he tells her they can have fun this summer. She tells him he's a good dad.

    Beth goes to Company to pick up some food for James.

    When Phillip goes to visit his son, he tells him that the food in there isn't all that bad. He tries to be friendly, but James is cold and tells him how much he hates him. After Phillip leaves, Beth comes in. The prosecutor arrives and explains that he's being charged with 312 counts of fraud. Beth realizes that he could end up in jail for 850 years. She tells him that they can fight this. "But I'm guilty. I'm going to go to prison," he says.

    Rick finds Phillip on the basketball court looking lost. Phillip is afraid that his son doesn't seem to be feeling anything. He scares him. "He has no rules," he explains. "I wonder where he got that from," Rick says. Beth comes out and begins laying into Phillip. Rick is called back to the hospital. Beth tells Phillip how long their son could go away for. He tries to play it down but she's furious that James could spend the rest of his life in prison.

    Phillip meets with the prosecutor to talk about the case. The prosecutor is confused how, after turning him in, he can be so shocked that he's being punished. He says that James was just a spoiled rich kid who stole from people living paycheck to paycheck.

    Lizzie and Bill are playing ball at the office when they start making out again. His secretary interrupts and then leaves his papers by the door. They go to the gym and Ashlee and Christina arrive to try games for the barbecue.

    "You make me feel beautiful when you look at me like that," Natalia tells Olivia. They touch each other's faces and talk about how they feel. Olivia tells her that she won't love her any less if sex never happens. "It will. I want it to," Nat assures her. Rafe watches them from a distance as Natalia offers to do her 'I love Olivia dance'. Rafe wanders over and his mother tells Olivia about his new job. Natalia decides they should celebrate. He leaves to take a shower. The women are sure this will all work out.

    Matt runs into Olivia while she's picking some things up. They wander down the street and he talks about riding his bike and invites her hiking. She fobs him off.

    Natalia goes to visit Frank and offers him some cookies. She thanks him for helping her son.

    Rafe goes looking for Olivia. He finds Emma with the babysitter. Jane slips away so he sits down with Emma. She shows him her 'My Two Mommies' paper and tells him about family day and all the time they've been spending together. She tells him that everyone knows their mothers are 'BFF's'.

    Rafe drifts around and bumps into Daisy. He asks her what happened at the wedding and wonders how his mother could have just changed her mind like that. Daisy tells him it's because women are complicated and gives him a hug.

    Natalia goes to Gus' grave and tells him that things have been turning around. She tells him that Olivia makes her really happy and she's sure it would make him happy.

    Buzz goes to visit James and hands him dessert. He's impressed by the scam that he pulled and admits that, when he was his age, he would have done the same sort of thing.

    When Buzz gets back to Company, he finds Frank working there. He tells his son that he'll miss him.

    Phillip goes to see Rick in the parking lot. He complains about how ridiculous things are. He just wanted to teach his son a lesson, not ruin his life. "You set it in motion, you gotta stop it," Rick says.

    Beth returns to the cells. James reminds her that he did everything he could to get his father out of jail. Phillip paid him back by sending him to jail. He's sure that he just wants to get rid of him.

    Phillip goes to see the judge for a private conversation.

    Matt and Rick arrive at the gym where everyone is playing tug of war.

    Olivia returns to the farmhouse. As she and Natalia drink champagne, Rafe watches them getting close and then blurts out, "Ma? What the hell?"

    Next on Guiding Light:

    Rafe says his mother isn't the person he thought he knew.

    Cyrus is under pressure from Natasha.

    Jeffery suggests that they set him up to make it look like he killed Edmund.

    Phillip tries bribing the judge.

    Well looks like the actors are slowly getting picked up by other soaps. Crystal Chappel is going to Days and I heard Gina Tognoni is going to OLTL. So it looks like no one is going to pick up this show. I sure do hate to see it go.


    Jeffery leaves to go hunt down Edmund because they don't think he is dead. Dinna goes with him.

    I guess this is how she leaves the show, but it does not say this. It is just my thought.

    Will someone please slap Beth. How dare she dismiss James' criminal actions. Does she really want Phillip to go to jail for the brat? Phillip is only trying to help his son and teach him responsibly. Beth has turned into Alan. Daisy wants James so she can stop the I Hate the Spauldings routine. Why would a doctor eat his lunch in the trunk of his car? What is wrong with Rick? Sorry lovers of O&N, today's situation with them really turned me off. How can a woman sit at her husband's grave and proclaim her affection to another woman? Now don't everyone jump on me, it is only my opinion. I respect yours so let me have mine.
    I think Rafe is going to have a problem with this.
    So, everyone have a great weekend.

    Thanks for the info. I guess you are right, nobody wants GL. But, I am happy that the actors/actress' are being relocated.

    Well with story so lame especialy when a show is fighting for its life it is no wonder that great actress are going to other shows.Oliva's great personality was been killed right in fornt of us and ever since they choose to have the crappy relationship w/ Marina and Mallett and Dinah sl have just gone realy donwn hill. It is just sooo fusterating! The lets try games out at the local school gym DUMB!
    It just realy upsets me that the writers were and still are getting a paycheck to kill Guiding Light.You would think whoever is in charge would do EVERYTHING to keep GL on

    Sorry for the rant.

    Hello:GLandWT,3Puppies,mom6,gossipqueen75,Sunflower and Eeveryone.

    Why is everyone in Springfield doing whatever they can to see James get off and go free as a bird??? He has admitted what he did. Why is Beth so willing to see Phillip suffer for something James did knowing exactly what the outcome would be??? Maybe she should step up and say it was her if she wants him to get off so bad.

    Now here comes Rafe with his convict butt is here to try to put a damper on the almost there romance of my beloved Otalia. Can we get this kid a job in Sweden perhaps?

    3Puppies ITA I hope that story line stops. Some of us said yesterday if they had picked different people it would have went over better.

    Beth has gotten on my last nerve. I have really never liked her, but now it is even worse. Like lacollins26 said why don't she step up and take the blame. I am sure everyone would rather see her gone than Philip.

    Posted by 3Puppies at Friday, June 12 2009 02:34 PM


    i just read that Phillip will become seriously ill. I don't know if they plan on killing him off but I sure hope not. I am tired of all the actors being killed off. Do you think that is the way they plan to end GL - everyone dies?????

    Well no wonder the show is ending. The story lines are stupid! For a Friday this was one of the most boring ones & there have been plenty of those in the past year!!
    I for one is SO SICK OF THE OLIVIA & NAT ONE that I could puke! I have nothing against lesbians. It's how they have drug it our forever! I just hate seeing Olivia playing this role as compared to how she was.
    Omg! Bill & Lizzie do I need say more? Get it over with!! They aren't going to change anything so I am so done with this show & actually will be glad when it's over. I just wonder if they can end it with some good things happening!

    I will be glad to be back at work next week and will not tape GL. This whole week has been so boring. I know this is going off the air, but the acting has been so laid back and unemotional, except for Phillip, that it is painful to watch. I was a loyal fan for most of my 50+ years, starting as a young child when my mother watched. It is sad to see how bad this show has become. No wonder no one wants to pick it up. Things just kept going more and more downhill since the Bauers left.
