    So Did I.

    Thursday, July 23 2009
    Reva plans the memorial, Rafe tells Ashlee about his mom, Mallet confronts Marina and Dinah rejects Shayne's proposal.


    Reva and Billy talk about planning the funeral. She doesn't even know what Jeffrey would want. He's sure she'll get a feeling for it. They meet with the funeral director but Reva has no idea what to pick. "We had hot dogs for our wedding," she randomly says. Reva's overwhelmed and walks out. As she walks, she flashes back to spending time in the park with Jeffrey and their son. She calls Billy with an idea.



    Rafe spots Olivia and confronts her, accusing her of driving his mother away. "She left me because of you," he says. She throws it back in his face and tells him this is his fault. He insists that she took advantage of his mother because she was weak and needed someone to love her. After he leaves, she throws baseballs and pounds her hands against the fence.



    Mallet tells Marina that he knows all about her secret. "A man is dead and I know that you murdered him," he states. She's shocked. He tells her that he can help her. She can't believe he's serious and storms upstairs. When she takes the baby outside, Mallet chases after her. Marina tells him that she is not a murderer. He points to the evidence and she shouts at him that she didn't do it. When he accuses her of lying to him for weeks, she storms away with the baby.



    Marina goes into Company to see Danny. He can see that she is upset but she won't talk about it. They talk about him coming back to town to do some work in the restaurant business. "I'm glad to have you back in town. You can never have too many friends," she says. They have coffee and he tells her about his new life.



    In the gazebo, Shayne takes the ring and gets down on his knee to propose to Dinah. She doesn't know why he'd want to do that – she's bad luck. He tells her that she makes him feel alive. At first, he wanted to run, but he thanks God that he didn't. It's not enough just to share a bed, he wants everything with her and he wants it forever. "You're everything I've ever wanted, but the answer is no," she says. She explains that there are a million reasons they shouldn't get married right now. He thinks that she is afraid that she doesn't deserve a good life. "You don't know who I am," she says. He knows that she's saved him and he wants her. After he asks her to think about it, Billy calls and tells him that he needs his help with the funeral. Awkwardly, he leaves.



    Dinah goes to the gym and runs into Mallet. She tells him that Shayne proposed but she's not feeling it. He tells her that he confronted Marina. Dinah can't understand why he is throwing things away. "My wife killed someone," he says. "So did I," she reminds him, telling him he asks too much of people. After Mallet leaves, Frank comes in and they talk about the unsolved murder case. She thinks they should just drop it but Frank says Mallet doesn't do that.



    Remy pushes the stroller out into the parking lot. Mallet catches him, becomes panic stricken and takes it away. He smashes it against a dumpster and then throws it in. "I guess you didn't want the stroller," Remy says. Mallet tells him it is a murder weapon and he never wants to see it again. He says that Marina killed the John Doe and he can't understand why she hasn't turned to him for help.



    Billy meets with Reva in the park. She announces that they will have the funeral in the park and everyone can share everything they loved about him. She rushes over to the town hall and asks Doris if she can officiate at the service. Doris agrees.



    Marina's surprised when Billy comes into Company and turns down pie. He tells her how hard things have been for Reva. She walks over to Ashlee and asks her to look after Henry while she goes to see her husband. After she runs off, Ashlee turns to Rafe and they begin discussing his mother running off. "My mother thinks she's in love with a woman," he says. When she asks him if his mother is gay, he becomes defensive and asks her not to tell anyone. He feels like he doesn't know his mother.



    Olivia calls her daughter and tells her that the service will be tomorrow. She's glad that she'll be coming. "Everyone deserves the chance to say goodbye," she says.



    Outside Company, Ashlee leaves Dinah to look after Henry for a minute. Dinah shows Henry the ring and tells him she doesn't deserve it. She never wanted anyone to get blamed for the murder, but she had to protect the baby from Edmund. As she confesses to killing the man, Matt stands a few feet away and listens. Dinah hopes that someday she'll be forgiven, but she did it all for Henry. Matt startles her and admits that he heard everything. Ashlee comes out and Dinah runs off. Matt chases her down. He tells her that this isn't the same as what happened with Hart. She cries and he suggests that she just let the police blame Jeffrey and leave this alone. He thinks she needs to have a happy life. She doesn't deserve it, she claims. He tells her that no one does and she should just bury this skeleton in her closet.



    Doris goes into Company and tells her daughter that she is going to be looking after the service. Ashlee tells her mother that she admires how reliable she is and then tells her all about Natalia being gay and never telling her son. "That's a huge secret to keep from your kid, don't you think?" she says.



    Shayne goes to Cross Creek and his mother tells him that she's figured out what to do for the service. She wants him to stop being the concerned son and get on with his life with Dinah.



    Mallet goes home and Marina tells him she wants to work things out. She repeats that she didn't do it.

    I wish Rafe would understand what it means to be supportive to your family. He was in prison for a federal crime and his mom was there to support him without hesitation. He caused harm to others and she stood by him. But he has done nothing but be mean to Olivia and his mom. They aren't causing harm to anyone by having feelings for one another. He is causing harm by being mean and by not trying to understand that sometimes two consenting adults, even of the same sex, can develop loving feelings for one another.

    I have never been a fan of Olivia and Natalia but after watching what has happened to the character of Olivia, the writers should put her with Natalia and have it over with. This whinny pitiful Olivia is horrible. Make her happy and give her "Nat" or send her away. Geez, it is getting boring watching Olivia grieving for Natalia. I guess if Natalia comes back (pregnant) she should not tell Frank, she can always say the baby belongs to her and Olivia.LOL!!
    I can't believe they made Dinah the killer of somebody. I thought she was leaving the show. Now, is she or isn't she? Good to see Danny again today. Didn't know he was back. Just love that guy. Now, Marina, she should just give Henry to Shayne and her and Mallet can go anywhere out of SF. I felt so sorry for Reva again today. Is Jeffery coming back or not? Does anyone know for sure?

    I never thought it would be Dinah who killed that man. I am glad she decided to stay on the show. Loved seeing Danny today he was always one of my favorites, hope he stays awhile. I sure hate that Jeffery decided to leave the show before the end.

    3Puppies, Mom6, Julien, Gossipqueen75, Vanillahere, Sunflower23 - Just wanted you guys to know that I an done posting. I have enjoyed posting with you all; however, when GL made Dinah the killer, it's the straw that broke the camel's back.

    Why would GL have Dinah do this to Reva? Why did they toy with us? Surely Dinah would know Edmund. Did Dinah killed the Edmund look-a-like or did she kill the real Edmund?

    I'd rather Dinah had left the show on a good note rather than have her kill again. She had worked so hard to mend her wrong doings.

    To all of you, good bye. I'm done.
