    This Is Out Of The Question.

    Tuesday, June 23 2009
    Reva tries to run, Alan bonds with James, Bill and Lizzie's wedding plans are taken out of their hands and Phillip goes to see Ed.

    At Cross Creek, Reva's showing the baby how to make coffee. She begins shouting at the lamp in the window. She's not a patient person and doesn't know how she will be able to wait for Jeffrey.

    Mallet calls Josh and asks him to meet for breakfast. When they meet up at Company, Mallet explains that the charges against Reva have been dropped and Jeffrey is now the prime suspect. Josh is relieved. Mallet wants to arrest all three of them for lying to him from the start but it's not his call. Jeffrey calls and Josh covers, claiming he is talking to Wanda. He fills him in and Jeffrey tells him again to keep his hands off of his wife. Billy arrives and orders his usual eggs and pie. Mallet warns them that this case won't be closed until he gets the truth.

    Marina is feeding Henry breakfast when Reva comes to her door and asks her to babysit for a few days while she runs off. Reva claims that she is going to see her father. When she leaves, Mallet arrives and his wife informs him that Reva has run off on some errands... for a few days. He guesses she's after Jeffrey and wants to call the FBI. Marina tries stopping him and reminds him that their adoption wasn't by the book. He doesn't appreciate the comparison and walks out.

    Reva goes to Cedars and picks up some meds from Rick. Before she can leave, Josh corners her and tells her she's not going anywhere. He reminds her that Jeffrey set himself up to keep her safe and she could ruin everything if she gets involved. "For once in your life, do what your husband wants," he says.

    Bill and Lizzie lounge in bed. She says they should get up. As they start kissing, she bolts up and asks him for the date. Lizzie's realized they only have 21 days until the wedding. She starts looking through catalogs but has trouble making any choices. They make out.

    Lillian and Beth are at Cedars wondering whether Lizzie has made any plans for her wedding yet. Beth has no idea what's going on. Lillian thinks she should take some time off to help plan things.

    Alex meets with Vanessa at Towers. Vanessa's worried about whether there are actually any plans for the wedding yet. Alex says that Lizzie is being very independent these days and hasn't made any plans. "This is out of the question!" Vanessa says. They decide that they better get to work.

    Lillian and Beth go to the minimart and pick up bridal magazines when Alex and Vanessa walk in. They begin discussing plans and decide that Lizzie and Bill need them. They barge into Bill and Lizzie's room, sit in the bed with them and begin dividing up the work load. Lillian and Alex start feeding them cake samples and then pulling out wedding gowns. "I have no pants on!" Bill objects when the tailor asks him to step up and be measured. He wraps himself in a sheet and escapes. The women try plotting as Lizzie stands there haplessly.

    Alan walks in on Phillip and tells him that he's very proud of how he handled James. Now he's looking forward to three generations of Spaulding men working together. They go downstairs as Hilda serves breakfast for them. James tells them that he's only there because he has to be. Alan informs them that they are having a board meeting today and he needs Phillip's vote to make sure that he is the new CEO. Phillip refuses to go so Alan tells James that he can join the board. Alan begins promising him a corner office and then wanders off. Phillip tells his son that he doesn't have to do this. "I can handle Granddad," James says. Phillip warns him that Alan is treacherous. James throws that back in his face and defends Alan for at least being honest. After he storms off, Jeremy tells Phillip that the jet is ready to go.

    When James walks into Company, Billy confronts him for what he did to his son and warns him that he will be watching him from now on.

    James goes over to the office to see Alan. Bill arrives carrying a box of his stuff and advises James to run.

    Mallet calls Josh in to the station and rants at him. He's sick of everyone lying to him. Josh walks away.

    Reva returns to Marina's to get Colin. She explains that she can't go on the run and walks away. When she takes the baby home, she cries and explains that she doesn't know what to do. She wishes that Jeffrey had explained things before he ran off. As she puts the lamp in the window, her phone rings. It's Josh. She shouts at him.

    Marina goes to the station to see Mallet and tell him that Reva isn't going anywhere. She worries about Reva and how she doesn't know who to trust. "Join the club," he says.

    When Bill returns to his room, he finds Lizzie in a dress and painted up. "We can't let those four women plan our wedding," she tells him. They eat cake and she asks him if they can plan things together.

    Vanessa and Billy are at Company talking about weddings.

    Alex, Lillian and Beth go drinking. Lillian thinks that they got a lot done. Alan arrives and talks about his day with his son and grandson.

    As Rick and James shoot hoops, the doctor tells him that he doesn't have the market cornered on hating his father. After Rick leaves, Alan arrives and plays with him.

    Phillip goes to see Dr. Ed Bauer.

    Next on Guiding Light:

    Alan bonds with James.

    Beth gets angry at Alan.

    Phillip tells Ed that something could be seriously wrong with him.

    Hate to use this expression but, what a SILLY show it was today. What guy would not get furious when his mother walks in on him while he is in bed with his girl? Besides that he had to admit he didn't have any pants on. What crap. Lizzie's face painting - what was that suppose to be? Laying in bed eating cake samples = oh please give me a break. This should have been a Wednesday show. Oh, seeing Dr. Bauer again was GREAT. Here goes one more s/l that will probably get lost in the shuffle.

    All I can say it was good to see Ed again. I guess Philip is going to die which realy stinks.I would like to see Vanessa and Billy get remarried.I wish Alan would but out of James's life but then again they are 2 peas in a pod. The murder plot at this point who cares. I do hope Marina finaly cracks and tell Mallet about Henrys tru parents.

    Does anyone know how long Ed Bauer is going to be on the show? Is this just another return of an older character? Would like to see him stay until the end. I guess next month we get the Santos guy. Love Danny, is Michelle still coming back or has that changed? Too many questions.

    3Puppies knowing the writers on this soap not for long.They hate anything that reminds us of the good ole days of this soap and how much they totaly runied it

    Wonder what lies ahead for the writers when GL is gone. Hope they don't get the chance to ruin anymore. Sorry writers, JMO.

    I guess the writers are even going to write crappier s/l. Why do they care. They already ran this show off the air with their lame s/l's. Really, why bring back old characters that are dearly loved & show us even more how horrid this show has gotten. I am sure that whatever s/l's they have for them they will be grateful that no were no longer on this losing show. Why have Phillip die after returning? The show is ending can't they make it at least a happy ending?? Unbelievable!!

    OMG, Lizzie and Bill please get married already. I was hoping they would write in her pregnancy into the s/l With Bill. Instead the writers have made their S/L so boring.

    Hi 3 Puppies, mom 0f 6, Julien, Vanillahere, GLandWt, and every one else....

    I have not watched in a long time & am kind of lost. Did Frank & Natalia get married or did Natalia leave him at the altar for Olivia & now I saw Olivia smooching Josh? Did Olivia mess up Natalia's wedding day b/c she "loved" her & now she's no longer sure she's a Lesbian or what? Help me someone please.
    Thank you, Blue

    I was in tears today when the show ended I do not beleive what I heard. Alex Grant just came back and now you do this kind of writing in the show> What chance of selling this show to another network without the most and best love person on the show. no matter who comes back its not going to be any kind of good show without him on the show. Sorry but I have watched the show since it started and you owe more then this kind of ending. I also have watched this show for so long I am able to out guess the writers so I figured out who did or did not kill Edmond. If dead I know who and why!
