    I Knew That You Could Be A Hero.

    Wednesday, September 09 2009
    Phillip and Alan say their goodbyes, Jonathan decides to move back and Frank, Nat and Olivia go through baby names.

    Natalia goes to see Olivia with a baby name book. She thinks they and Frank can all start lists or get together to make a big list. Olivia tells her she needs to move slowly. Nat tells her to jump in with both feet and takes her hand. Natalia begins reading names. Olivia feels the baby kick and tells her that she loves her, but she still needs to catch up with her. Nat tells her to hurry up because the baby is coming and she wants her to know that they are both her mother.

    At Company, Frank and Blake are looking at the picture from the ultrasound. He's eager to do the right thing but he doesn't know what it is anymore. Reva and her baby come in. She hopes that both sides of the family will be supportive of Henry. Frank looks forward to going broke spoiling his child and grandchild. Blake and Reva sit together and the redhead says she's impressed by how well Reva's doing.

    Jeffrey stands in an alley as Edmund pulls up. He tries to get a shot at him but has no luck. He follows him into a garage and tries shooting at him. Edmund stands behind a wall and they begin taunting each other.

    Sarah and Jonathan walk into Josh's office and surprise him. Jonathan asks him if it would be safe for him to move back to town. He thinks that Sarah needs more of a girl influence in her life. Josh explains that Alan has relaxed since Phillip came back and plenty of people will help to make sure that Sarah is safe.

    Reva takes Colin home and tells him that they will never forget Jeffrey but they have to get through this. Josh comes to the door and then lets Jonathan and Sarah in. They send Sarah to get some toys and Jonathan explains that he wants them to stop running and stay there. Jeffrey calls Jonathan and tells him that Edmund is watching everyone so they need to be careful. Josh brings Henry over to meet the other kids.

    Lizzie and Bill rush to the hospital. Alex, Beth and James are also there. Lillian and Rick come out and explain that Alan has volunteered to save Phillip. Rick says the chances are only 50/50. James demands to speak to his father. Alex sends Lizzie to see Alan.

    Phillip and Alan are being prepped for surgery. They try joking around. Alan refuses to back out. They join hands and tell each other how much they love each other.

    James sits with his father. He hopes this works but doesn't know why he is taking Alan's help and not his. Phillip couldn't let him do it. They hug. Bill comes in next. Phillip tells him that he needs him to make sure that all of the loose ends are taken care of if he and Alan don't make it. "Lizzie's family is my family," Bill says.

    Lizzie goes to see Alan. He assures her that he will be fine. "I always knew that you could be a hero," she cries, hugging him. James comes in next. Alan admits that he's terrified. James tells him he'll make it.

    Olivia runs into Alex in the minimart. Alex explains that Alan is in surgery. They try to be positive and Olivia asks to be informed of what happens. They share an extremely awkward moment.

    Olivia runs into Josh at The Beacon. They catch up and talk about babies. When she mentions Nat, he tells her that she should just get back together with her.

    At Cedars, Alex goes to see her brother as he's being sedated. He tells her that she's been a wonderful sister. She thinks he's been a wonderful father and is being heroic. Alan just hopes he can save his son. He brings up his funeral and explains that he wants it to be a quiet scattering of his ashes for the family. She gives him a kiss.

    Beth goes to see Phillip. They joke about how nothing kills Alan so they must have a good shot at surviving this. She cries and he admits that he knew he was dying when she kissed him, but he felt in that moment that nothing could separate them. If he can make it through this, he hopes they can find a way back to each other. Before she can say anything, Rick and the nurses come in and wheel him out.

    Bill and James bring sandwiches for everyone. Beth tells her mother how angry she is with her for never telling her that Phillip is sick. Lillian tells her that lying about this has been the hardest thing she's ever had to do. "I just wanted the chance to take care of him," Beth cries.

    Lizzie and James talk. He's angry that his grandfather is taking this risk. She reminds him that he has already saved one member of the family. Now they have to help their mom and Alex.

    Frank, Blake and Nat discuss baby names at Company. Nat insists that it has to be chosen before the baby is born. She starts the names from the beginning. Olivia arrives and sits down to help. Frank seems uncomfortable. When they reach the letter 'b', Frank leaves to take a call. Nat tells Olivia to move into the farmhouse today. Olivia agrees. Frank returns and says that he's going to be chief again.

    Next on Guiding Light:

    The Spauldings wait for news.

    Reva thinks Jonathan should call Lizzie.

    Doris tells Olivia that she's worried since Ashlee ran off after she came out to her.

    Great show today.I really love that Jonathan will be moving back to s/f,But still so sad that my favorite show is almost over.

    CBS I cant believe you are taking off this show and putting on Lets Make A Deal !!!!!! Do you really think that is going to help your ratings that time of day? That was a stupid game show when it was on way back when. I can say I for one will not be watching I guess Rachel Ray here I come !!!!!!

    CBS what the heck are you thinking? Not a smart move on your part. GL is like family. I remember watching it when I was little (now 45). My daughter who is 17 loves it. Especially Reva. I love them all--even Alan on one of his mean days. Replacing it with another stupid game show isn't going to help you. I do believe you will be losing a lot of your watchers. This is devastating. Not only do you have the best looking cast but also the most talented. Drop B&B if you have to drop something. They doesn't need to be on any way. That's just a sleezy show. I am a nurse and when GL comes on almost every single one of my patients have GL on. Thanks for taking away family--not a smart move:(

    It is good that Jonathan is back to stay. I look forward to seeing Lizzie & Sarah being re-united. Otalia finally built a little more. I'd rather get "Let's Make A Deal" instead of a double dose of "The Price Is Right" everyday.

    It is just so sad that time is running out, I have watched for so many years. It is one of my favorite shows, I won't be watching lets make a deal.

    Alan has proven he IS a great dad. I suspected he would be this surgery for Phillip and I don't believe he will die. Alan has to be there for the family. Phillip has to be there for the family. Bill Lewis is NOT a Spaulding and he could never fill the shoes of either Alan nor Phillip. I love Bill but he doesn't do it for me. Alex was so precious today. She truly loves Alan and he loves her. Can't quite figure out Beth, why would she be so angry at her mother? I thought Beth didn't want Phillip in her live. James just doesn't know how to show his love to Phillip. Too bad. Jonathan is and will always be my favorite. What a guy!! His laugh is contagious. Sarah is a real cutie. I think Jeffery will be killed. (Hope not but.....) I like Jeffery but I still love Josh/Reva.
    Now I read somewhere that GL is NOT be on Friday. What is that all about? It is almost the ending and we lose a day. CBS really screwed up big time on this show. GL is the only soap I watch. Hate to start with ATWT if it is going to be cancelled soon.

    Hey 3Puppies, hope that you and yours are well....I agree especially about Bill, nice guy, but don't feel as tho he can carry out what Phillip ask of him. But hopefully he will never be tested, they need to keep Phillip and Alan both going unti the end. Friday it will be taken off once again for "tennis". We missed Monday and now Friday, what were they thinking, certainly not about their GL followers..

    I have one question with all these pre-empted shows is that going to push the last episode back. I really enjoyed the writing the past few weeks I can only wander if they was writing like this the entire time maybe the show wouldn't be cancelled.

    3Puppies ATWT is okay and Tom P is moving to Oakdale I'm not sure if he is going to stay for a while or just a couple of episodes but I believe he is going to play a bad guy and we know he does that well. If everyone that watches GL would tune in for ATWT maybe their ratings will go up enough to keep them on. We just have to do our part bt posting and watching.

    I have enjoyed all of you and your commets during the past years.
    I will be watching General Hospital after Sept 18.
    There isn't another CBS soap opera that I like.
    I so wish the writers would be nicer to Frank--don't like the Natalia-Olivia S/L.
    Anyone have any idea how this all will end ?

    Posted by shorty1943 at Thursday, September 10 2009 08:51 AM

    They say that it was planned and that the story will end as planned on Sept.18th...still makes me upset that we will have 5 days this week and only 3 shows....that is rotten no matter how you slice it. Also about ATWT, Simon, Ben, and Mike are all due to come back on the show in the near future.....that should help the ratings a lot, sure will for my part, I will look at all 4 of those beautiful men at least double them and Tom.
