    Me. You. Sex. Now.

    Tuesday, August 18 2009
    Natalia talks to Olivia and Frank, Jonathan and Jeffrey's ambush is a bust and Lizzie longs for her daughter.

    Lizzie is going through her mementos when she finds a picture of her daughter. She wonders what she is up to now and calls Reva to ask her if she knows where her daughter is. Reva claims she doesn't and tells her she knows all about loss. After she hangs up, Reva goes back to looking at pictures of Jeffrey and laughing about their wedding day. She talks about what a miracle it was to have a man like Jeffrey fall in love with her.

    Josh is at Company chatting with Daisy about Reva. He gets a voicemail from Reva complaining about her plumbing. He holds his head in his hands and then runs off.

    Josh drives up to Cross Creek. Reva runs out to stop him from going inside. After he leaves, she rushes back inside and continues talking to Jeffrey's picture.

    Jeffrey and Jonathan are sitting in a van. Jeffrey is sure that Edmund is watching and says they need to bring someone in to 'be a Sarah' to lure Edmund out. They make a doll to look like her and laugh. They're sure that this will be enough to get Edmund out of hiding and put the doll in Jonathan's babyseat. He drives off and Jeffrey follows behind. They drive over to Jonathan's and then he leaves the car behind. As soon as he disappears from sight, Edmund comes out and heads for the car. He quickly notices it's a doll. Jeffrey tries to arrest him. They shoot at each other. Jonathan returns and starts shooting. As they all empty their guns, a car drives up and Edmund leaps in, running over Jeffrey as they escape. Jonathan helps Jeffrey up and they wonder what to do next.

    Lizzie goes to see Frank and asks him how she can find her daughter. He offers to run a check to see if Jonathan has been arrested.

    On the playground, Natalia tells Olivia that she's pregnant. She wasn't ready to face her with that so she ran. She apologizes. "You left me!" Olivia blurts out. She walks across the street and Nat follows. Natalia says that she is actually very excited to have Frank's baby. While she was away, she realized what she really wants. "I want to be with you," she says. Emma runs over and interrupts. Olivia ushers her daughter away.

    Olivia and Emma eat ice cream at Company. She leaves her daughter with Daisy and a pizza. After she walks off, Reva wheels Colin in and asks Daisy to watch him.

    Natalia watches the swans in the park. Matt stops by and notices she's pregnant. She tells him it's Frank's but he doesn't know yet. After he leaves, Olivia calls to say she's on the way. When she arrives, she keeps her distance and asks her how she can break her heart and then just walk back in? She also points out that she did the same to Emma. She was a mother to the little girl and then dropped her. "She seemed happy to see me," Nat says. Olivia admits that she had to send Emma away because she was falling apart. Just as she's started rebuilding her life, Nat's shown up again. Olivia refuses to let her swan her way back in. "I came back because I want everything to be about us. I want to be with you for the rest of my life," Nat says. She explains that at first she couldn't believe she was pregnant and was sure that God must have been punishing her. Then she realized that a baby is a gift and she wants to raise it with Olivia. Frank can be a father, but she wants the baby to live with them. Olivia says this is completely different from what they had with Emma. Nat just abandoned her when she hit a problem. "You broke my heart and I can't let that happen again. I don't trust you," Olivia cries.

    Frank and Matt are playing golf with Josh. They talk about online dating and Josh says he's looking for a woman he has no history with. Frank admits that he's not comfortable with all of this. He can't spend his life with someone he doesn't love. After Josh leaves, Matt teases Frank.

    Lizzie goes to Cross Creek to see Reva. She wants to talk about Sarah. "I'm sorry you're having such a hard time with this, but I've got groceries I have to take care of," Reva says. When she goes inside, she has a picnic with Jeffrey's picture.

    Jonathan and Jeffrey return to his place. Jonathan has a small bullet wound. When they step into the house, they find a reel to reel in the middle of the room. When Jeffrey turns it on, it plays a recording Edmund left. He tells them they'll have to keep trying if they want to protect Reva. He wants to make sure that she feels all of the pain that he's caused her. Edmund threatens to take all of the children unless Jeffrey lets Reva keep thinking that he is dead. Jeffrey wants to smash the tape but he's too injured to do it so Jonathan has to do it for him. He asks Jonathan to go and see Reva. "I'll be back in less than a week," he says.

    Natalia arranges to meet Frank at his place. As soon as he sees her, he realizes she's pregnant.

    Olivia bursts into Josh's room. "You. Me. Sex. Now," she says, kissing him and pushing him into bed.

    Next on Guiding Light:

    Frank isn't sure what to think about the pregnancy.

    Olivia wants to have sex with Josh to forget Nat.

    Reva has a picnic alone.

    Today was very good. I know that Olivia is very shocked about Nats return, but she will realize how much she needs Natalia. Olivia won't be able to stop her feelings about Natalia even if she has sex with every man in town. She better get a grip or she will become a very poor example for Emma who definitely loves Natalia.

    I hate that they didn't get their hands on Edmund. Now Jeffery can't let Reva know he is alive. I don't know how Jonathan will handle it when he sees how bad a shape Reva is in. I just hope this all ends well with no one getting killed unless it is Edmund.

    Does anyone know the exact date of the last episode? I have been hearing several different dates. We have satellite service coming from the DC area and the CBS station has been advertizing "Dr Oz" starting Sept. 14 @3:00 pm which is the Guiding Light timeslot. WHOOPEE We get 2 hours of Dr. shows with instant diagnosis and cures but at least not a retread of a game show that was a dud to begin with. Anyhow, if the date of the 12th is wrong we get robbed of the last week. CBS & PG would probably do just that to the fans. I am so through with Proctor & Gamble products unless there is nothing else on the market. My silent protest. I am going to really miss all the folks on GL. I started watching it with my grandmother when I was just a kid. A loooong time ago. If they don't get Reva & Jeffrey back together I am really going to be po,ed. Have a great day everyone.

    I agree with all that you said, makes me sad for it to end, the least they can do for all of us that have stuck with them for years is have some happy endings!! Last day is Sept.18, month from today actually. 23 more shows it looks like..........they better get busy on those happy endings, now we cannot say if they don't, we won't watch anymore....drats!!

    Shenandoahgal, you can watch the shows on usually after 7:00 ET. Olivia better come to her senses and not push Natalia away too many times.

    sholsten - Thanks!! Guess that is the way I will see the last week. I will be calling WUSA tomorrow to voice my feelings of how long time viewers are being treated. Not only CBS but now the local stations. Surely I am not the only soap viewer in the DC Metro area. This station covers DC, Maryland, and Northern Virginia. That's a lot of folks. They seem to not care at all about the viewers but I will not be watching this station anymore. Sure they could care less.

    Loved Chrystal Chappell to day! OMG! Jessica Leccia (Nat) was good to. I feel eveytime CC does a scene she really sucks you into her raw emotion and it gets the better of you. I really believe she will come to her senses and love Nat no matter what. Didn't you see the way she wanted to grab her but couldn't for a second there. Josh will not sleep with her once he realizes he is only the concelation prize. She loves Nat! Olivia telling Frank to go after what he wants even if its Nat. please she is only saying that B/c she is hurt. She will love her always and If Nat were to end up with Frank Liv would be sooooo jealous!

    GL is looking pretty good in their final weeks.
    Yes, great acting today by Chappell and of course I get more impressed with Tom Pelphrey every time I see him. He's getting better with every appearance.

    My heart was breaking today for Olivia. CC is a very wonderful actress. Somehow she can make you feel the way her character is feeling. I was crying w\ her today. I imagine most of us has had our hearts broken like Olivia. I for one agree w\ her about Nat. Is she going to go away when something else scares her? I do want them together but Nat better do some MAJOR brown-nosing w\ Olivia. Is it me or is Frank just a moron? I know some people might like him but I see no purpose in the Frank character. He had to know the baby was his. He just looked at Nat like what happened to your belly it looks like you have a ball under your dress. He knew he was the last male to sleep w\ her. GL has only 23 more episodes left and I feel like I am losing a part of my family. When I was a little girl and my grandma would watch me. Everyday we would watch GL. If my grandma was a live today she would be crying her eyes out knowing that GL was getting cancelled. It is so sad to see this show end. Once GL ends I will not watch CBS or buy anything from P&G. They could have found a way to save GL but they didn't want to. So thank you Ellen "The Killer of GL" Wheeler for what you have done to our beloved GL.

    I ahte the fact the writers have made Reva a nutted person on this show. Nat should be with Frank not olivia.Reva should go back to Josh since Jeffery is to busey playing Cat and mouse games with the sycotic one Edmond. Because Jeffery is going to be in Jail when he returns to Reva anyway...
