    So Can I.

    Thursday, July 09 2009
    Olivia and Doris search for Natalia, Mallet gets a new suspect and Reva leaves to find Jeffrey.

    Lizzie and Bill feed the swans and she wonders if they ever fight. They joke around about their families until Billy walks by. He explains that Jeffrey has gone missing. Lizzie thinks they should postpone the wedding. Billy explains that Dinah could be dead too and wants to take his son to talk to Vanessa. Bill is shocked. Lizzie hugs him and repeats that they should delay the wedding. She can forgive Dinah for everything she did if it would mean getting her back.

    Olivia is waiting in the parking lot for Doris so they can go searching for Natalia. Doris shows up with an armload of stuff and lets Olivia load the car. They look over the map. Doris talks about Oakdale and Olivia worries about what to say to Nat. Olivia just wants to be with her. Doris has never had a relationship like theirs. She suggests that Nat feels the same way about her religion as they do about their daughters. She may not be able to have both in her life. "God can be very powerful," Doris warns. "So can I," Olivia says.

    Olivia goes to a convent and searches for Nat. She even tells a nun that God has sent her to find Natalia. "I've seen many angels and you're not one of them," the nun says. Olivia runs around the grounds. She screams up at the window, demanding that Natalia come down so she can talk to her and make her understand.

    After Doris and Olivia get in the car, Olivia decides to head home. What she just did made her realize that she can't be the pathetic heroine in a Tennessee Williams play. Nat has pushed her away and she's going home.

    Mallet and Marina pace around their kitchen. She worries that Edmund is still on the loose and wishes he was dead. As she sits with Henry, she suggests they get a security system for the house and tell her family that Henry is related to Edmund. Mallet worries that if everyone knows the truth, it would change things. He wants to get to work, even though she insists that this case is a waste of time and he should let it go.

    At Cross Creek, Josh and Reva continue to question Dinah for details. The FAA calls Josh. Reva tells Shayne and Dinah to go away together. After they leave, Josh takes out a map and shows Reva how large the search area for Jeffrey is. She's ready to go down south to search. Josh lists the reasons why this is a bad idea but it doesn't make any difference. He refuses to go along with her and walks out. Mallet calls and asks her to meet him at the station.

    Dinah and Shayne go back to his place and he tells her how thankful he is to have her back. He informs her that Edmund learned that Henry is his grandson and Mallet figured things out too. Shayne blames all of this on Mallet. Jeffrey would still be at home with Reva if it wasn't for his hard headed ways.

    Lizzie walks into Company, hugs Shayne and tells him how sorry she is. He doesn't quite understand and then explains that Dinah was not on the plane that went down. She runs off.

    Bill meets his father at the office. Bill remembers what a hard year he had with his sister but he thought that he'd be able to fix things. "Regret is a hard thing," Billy says. Lizzie shows up and tells them that Dinah is alive. They're relieved that they didn't talk to Vanessa first. Lizzie drags Bill away to see his sister.

    Reva shows up at the station. She and Mallet argue and she refuses to help him with anything. She even accuses him of trying to kill Edmund. Before she leaves, he wishes her good luck searching for Jeffrey.

    Marina goes to see Shayne and Dinah. "I have some important questions about our son's grandfather and what you intend to do about him," she says. She stutters and questions them but they can't tell her much. When Shayne leaves to get ice, Dinah asks her why she is there, forcing Shayne to step up for his son like this. Dinah urges her to be careful.

    Josh runs into Shayne in the hall and tells him that Reva is going in search of Jeffrey. Josh wants his son to go with her. He already promised Jeffrey that he would keep his distance from Reva and he has to keep his word. Shayne's impressed but thinks his loyalty should be with Reva, not Jeffrey.

    Bill and Lizzie go over to Shayne's to see his sister. They ask her to their wedding. Lizzie explains that they want to start things over. Bill feels the same way. Dinah is touched and hugs them. After they leave, Shayne comes in and tells her about his run-in with his father.

    Marina gets home as Mallet returns. He starts looking for Henry's inheritance from Edmund. She explains that she burned it. He's shocked that she destroyed evidence. "I would do anything to make Edmund go away!" she shouts. After she flounces off, he notices that a piece of the child's stroller is missing. He realizes that it could have been used to kill Edmund.

    Lizzie and Bill go home. She tells him that it's the night before the wedding so he has to find somewhere else to sleep and then shows him the door.

    After Reva packs up, she heads out the door only to find Josh waiting for her. "We better go," he says.

    Bill and Lizzie's wedding day starts going wrong.

    Mallet confronts Marina about the broken stroller.

    I guess all the N/O fans was totally impressed with Olivia today. I thought the acting was superb. I am not a fan of Nat/Olivia but Crystal did an excellent performance today.
    Now really, is Mallet going to suspect his own wife for the murder of Edmund? I don't even believe Edmund is dead. Mallet use to be a good cop what happened to him? Glad Josh decided to go with Reva to find Jeffery. Also, glad Dinah is back. Only hope she stays on. I have a question, is Cyrus responsible for the stove (Buzz) and the $30,000 to Daisy. I saw part of Tuesday's epi at 2:30 a.m. but it was cut before the show was over.

    I agree with 3Puppies about Crystal performance. Great job. i hope she changes her mind and does not go home and keeps looking for Natalie. Yes, Cyrus is responsible for the stove and the money for Daisy.

    Iheard Mallet and Rick are going to die.

    Has anyone else heard this?

    I think Olivia did a great acting job today and I love her as an actress, But I don't agree with her reason for doing it. She used to be such a strong woman I don't like seeing her this way. Loving someone is one thing but running all over the country crying and hollowing for them to come back, I just don't like that.

    I am glad Bill and Dinah made up.

    ******************SPOILER ALERT*************************

    I read that about Mallet but I think it might be just a rumor. It was stated that at the end of the show the PD would be blown up and people killed. I read that it would include Mallet and Marina. Again, it might just be a rumor.

    Great performance by Olivia (Crystal Chappell) today. Now that's what I call true love. I think she did a superb job. She definitely deserves an award for todays episode and others of course but today was very well done. I wanted to cry for her. I am a big fan of Crystals and Otalia. I do hope her and Natalia end up together.I hope she doesn't give up on Natalia.

    I am glad Dinah/Bill/Lizzie made up today; however, it seems Josh will not be there to perform the wedding on tomorrow.

    What is wrong with Baby Henry's stroller? I can't believe Marina has been pushing him in an unsafe stroller.

    I liked what Dinah said to Marina about running to Shayne instead of going to Mallet. I did not like her reasons for destroying the contents of the box that Edmund sent. I think she could have kept the picture of Lara, Baby Henry's biological mother. She must not be planning on telling him he was adopted later when he is older.

    Why is Reva taking the baby with her? Wouldn't little Colin be in the way of her trying to find Jeffrey? I can understand she would want Jeffrey to see Colin, but she doesn't know the circumstances or conditions facing them.

    Olivia is a very good actress; nevertheless, she could have given Natalia time to sort things out... Olivia had just told Doris that she was going to wait for Natalia... Then she tries to find her without success and her whole attitude changed.

    Hi 3Puppies, Mom6, Julien, Gossipqueen75, Vanillahere, Sunflower23, and all.

    Yes, the acting on today's show was great by Crystal (Olivia). I just hope that the writers don't go the path of all the other shows that have come before with lesbian characters, and have them go their seperate ways. As a lesbian, I am so tired of the played out drama that never leads to a real(make believe)romance. It's hard enough to find characters that have some resemblance to myself. Just once it would be nice to have a "Happily ever after."

    The best part of the Doris/Olivia road trip was when Doris stated that they would be going past Oakdale and that she had been thinking of moving there after her term as mayor of Springfield was over and then run for mayor of Oakdale. If would be nice to see a few old friends come to Oakdale from Springfield when the Light is turned off.
