    Big Mistakes

    Monday, December 04 2006
    Josh and Reva may be making up too fast for Cassie. Jeffrey hunts dowbn Lizzie and the baby. Alan cozies up with Doris.


    Beth is playing both sides

    Tammy and Remy are sitting in his car. He's making his best offer to help her forget Jonathan, but she can't accept. He offers to track Jonathan down and drag him back so that he can prove that he is the better man.


    Josh is telling Reva that he finally understands what she did. It was her sacrifice that allowed him to build the veteran's hospital. She's happy to hear this and cries while she recalls watching him accept his medal; she felt like she was with him, where she belonged, that whole time. Cassie appears in the background but stays out of sight while they speak. Josh and Reva exchange apologies and she confesses that it would have been easy for her to fall into his arms when he gave her Cross Creek, but…Cassie interrupts and asks them why they left the hospital. Reva says that hospitals make her uncomfortable and then changes the subject: She's worried about Jonathan and Lizzie. Tammy appears and informs them that Jonathan called her to say goodbye: He's gone for good. She's broken up about it, but maybe it's for the best. Josh tells Reva that, if she needs help fighting Alan, she should call him. Reva walks away, still disturbed to see Josh, Cassie and Tammy bonding together.

    Josh and Cassie try to convince Tammy that Jonathan isn't her problem anymore. This is hard for her to admit. The thought of never seeing Jonathan again frightens her. Josh tells her that it takes a lot of time to get over your first love. Cassie glares at him and gives Tammy some hot chocolate to cheer her up. Tammy goes off and Cassie says that her daughter needs less drama in her life. Josh says that's what he's going for Reva; he's not angry at her anymore. Cassie tells him this is good because, if it hadn't been for Reva, they never would have fallen in love.

    Lizzie is with the baby in a hotel room. She is promising her that she'll give her the best home 'no matter where they are.' She assures her that her daddy loves her and hopes that he'll grow to love her as well. Right now, he is out shopping and Jeffrey stands outside the door. They were easy to track down. He tries to tell himself that this is 'just a job', but can't put Ava's disgust over him taking the position out of his mind. While he listens at the door, Lizzie calls Reva to tell her that they're fine and Jonathan's hidden them well. Reva's worried that the longer they stay away, the angrier Alan will get. Lizzie says that they'll only think about coming back when Alan calms down. Meanwhile, she and Jonathan are getting closer. When she hangs up, Jeffrey knocks on the door and, expecting Jonathan, she eagerly answers. Jeffrey walks into the room while Lizzie starts to panic and threatens to scream. He tells her that Jonathan won't be back for awhile because he has a flat tire. He's only there because her grandfather is worried about her. The baby starts to cry and Lizzie says she needs feeding but doesn't have any food. Jeffrey sends her out, but demands that she leave the baby with him. Reluctantly, she goes, leaving the baby in his arms. He begins singing to the baby until it stops crying. Then he tells her about his daughter, how he never knew her and she was probably better for it.

    Reva goes through the pictures of Lizzie and the baby on her phone before stopping at a picture of Josh. She takes the wedding rings hung around her neck off and puts them in a little box. There's a knock at the door. It's Beth, who hurries in, lest Alan should spot her. Beth assures her that she only wants what's best for her daughter, even if that is Jonathan. Reva tells Beth that Lizzie just called and this throws her off a bit. She lets Reva know that Alan has hired Doris to sue for custody and urges her to help bring Lizzie back; the longer she's gone, the worse things will be. They need to be convinced to return before something bad happens.

    Alan has invited DA Doris to lunch. She can read his mind: He wants to hire her to get him custody of Lizzie's baby. He tries to get her drunk and tells her that they have a lot in common: They both hate Jonathan and are protective of their families. Ashlee interrupts them after eavesdropping and tells them that they should be ashamed of plotting against Jonathan. He's 'just misunderstood,' she claims before confessing that she wishes that she was having his baby. Alan tells her that he wishes she was too. He goes on to assure her that he is just doing Jonathan a favor and trying to free him from his obligations so that he can go back to being his old self. When he gets back, Ashlee could be a positive influence on him and help him move on. Ashlee is excited to hear that Alan thinks this way and eggs her mother on a bit before going off. Alan and Doris are sure that they're going to have 'a beautiful friendship.' However, Doris is concerned that Alan has hired Jeffrey. 'Once in a while he has a conscience,' she says disparagingly before leaving. Ava has been sitting only a few feet away and heard the entire exchange. Alan sits with her but she tells him that Jeffrey is a stranger to her and she wants to keep it that way.

    Alan imagines going Christmas shopping with Lizzie, but Beth breaks him out of his trance. Things shouldn't be this way, he tells her, and this should be a happy time for everyone. Beth tells him they should go home, but he has work to do. He calls Jeffrey who tells him that he lost Jonathan and Lizzie. Alan reprimands him and promises him that, if he doesn't capture them, he will never have any kind of career in Springfield again. Lizzie is started that Jeffrey has done this and realizes that the baby got to him. He tells her that they need to hide better and they should have the baby checked out. Lizzie hugs him before he leaves with an awkward feeling.

    Reva arrives at the court room and meets Mel to talk strategy. Mel wants to call Josh in for support but Reva refuses. Alan and Beth arrived and are dismayed to see Reva there. Doris tells him to let her do all the fighting. Meanwhile, Mel tells Reva that she doesn't have to fight alone. She turns around to see Josh followed by Tammy and Cassie (who shoots a worried look at Josh and Reva standing together). Tammy can't face this however; this is the same room she gave up Jonathan in. she leaves and calls Remy to help her track him down.

    Next on GL:Gus and Harley go off in search of the mysterious woman in the photograph. Ava tries to deal with her parents. Alan launches his fight for custody in court.

    I can't believe that Lizzie would leave her baby with Jeffrey. Than goodness he had a change of heart. Alan and Doris need to find a hole, curl up, and die. I wish Tammy's character was stonger. I do not know if I could still love a man who has had a baby with a person who was supposed ot be one of my best friends. And come on, Remy is so fine and sweet. I would have fallen for him a long time ago. She kissed him at one point right? So whats up? Cassie ticks me off. She should just back away and let Josh have his Reva and let Reva have her Josh before things get ugly because I know that Cassie would lose when it comes to Reva. She just needs to give it up.

    Alan wanting custody is ridiculous. The baby has both parents and it makes no sense that a judge would even consider giving him the baby. Hopefully Lizzie and Jonathan get the baby checked out and she is healthy.

    I guess when Lizzie finally gets the baby checked out, something will seriously be wrong and the baby won't make it. Jonathan will not be able to handle it and leave forever, sending Lizzie back to Alan.

    I hope nothing hapeens to the baby, after what all Reva just went thru, they ALL really need a new baby in the picture.

    alan needs to leave them alone. They are adults and they want what is best for that baby. Johnathon will make a great father and lizzie will make a great mother if they are given the chance. cassie needs to grow up. But, I don't think that Reva and Josh are going to get back together. I just have that feeling!

    What I cannot understand, is what about Emma? Is'nt that is granddaughter to? Why is'nt he trying to get to "know" her? Will we ever see Emma with the Spaudings?

    Posted by woolgal at Monday, December 04 2006 12:36 PM

    suburbandiva...excellent point about Emma. This is absurd that Allan could even get as far as the court room door with this one. countrychick420...do you really have that feeling about Josh and Reva? You could be right...how depressing to think that that could happen. I can't believe Cassie so innocently walked up to Josh and Reva and pretended like it was nothing. As if she didn't know she was interrupting them! Was she not listening to them from a distance, and how interesting that she specifically told Josh at the hospital to go ahead and go after Reva and she would catch up with him later...So I guess that really ment if your not back in ten minutes i'll come and find you Josh cause that is exactly what she did! What a looser!!!!!!!!! Get rid of her now PLEASE!

    I will be so glad when Phillip comes back..

    Beth should be ashamed of herself....I feel sorry for Lizzie because she has really tried to change for the better..Tammye and Jonathan are sickening...they are cousing for crying out loud...Please.....

    Mr. Remy...I would give Tammye the time of day...what about Remy and Marina.....

    Alan is an old fuddy duddie and don't know how to act....

    Cassie needs to get a life and get over herself...

    Now that everyone especially Josh know's the trueth about Reva, and how desperate he was to keep her alive...his be-loved-Reva...how Cassie (dingy) watched him..you would think she would beat it..

    I think Ava likes Alan Micheal...Coop is a nice guy, but he is so Boring..

    If you remember, Phillip is not a real Spaulding. He is a Marlar.

    Posted by SoapBoxJunkie at Monday, December 04 2006 01:04 PM

    I do remember, but Phillip has a hold on Alan...

    Why is Alan so obsessed with this whole baby thing anyway.

    Is he so amped up on himself he can't get it on to have his own he can't....
