    Sarah Comes to Springfield

    Friday, December 08 2006
    Jonathan and Lizzie return with the baby. Tammy makes a disturbing discovery. Gus makes a desperate move. Mallet and Dinah vie for Vanessa's favor.


    Gus makes a desperate move

    Harley brings Gus a calendar to point out that that it's her ovulation time. Even this demonstration can't stop Gus from seeming absent minded. Nonetheless, she manages to pull him reluctantly into the evidence room for another adventure in baby-making. When they get back, she starts planning the nursery colorscheme, but Gus thinks that she might be jumping the gun. Maybe they should be more concerned about the children they already have. She says that she already feels pregnant. Frank arrives and she asks him how the boys are. They're with Rick at a father-son function which Harley failed to tell Gus about. Distracted, he spills his coffee and Harley's concerns about him return. Frank informs them that the baby who they were looking after a few weeks ago is an orphan yet again. Her grandmother just passed away and, with her parents in jail, she will have to go to a foster home. Gus and Harley rush off to see the baby and bring it back to the station. He's worried that the baby will be pushed from foster home to foster home. Some dead beat people get to have kids while others go without, he says sadly to the social worker. While the social worker is calling around, Gus calls in a distraction and then sneaks in to grab the baby while she isn't looking.


    Dinah finds Mallet buying flowers and asks him what she did to deserve them. He tells her that it's 'a work thing' and she shoots him an inquisitive look after he kisses her and walks away. Later, they find themselves waiting at Towers for Vanessa. When she arrives, Mallet gives her the flowers and thanks her for putting his show on the air. The police get all sorts of tips from viewers and it's helping them fight crime. Dinah tells 'pretty boy' Mallet that she's on to him: He's trying to bribe her mother. Vanessa encourages this and they begin to try and out compliment one another. Mallet thinks Dinah is trying to prove what a bubbly TV personality she can have. Vanessa says that putting them in competition was obviously a good idea; it's brought out their commitment to quality television programming. Once she leaves, Ashlee arrives with a bag full of stuff for Dinah. Mallet recognizes that it's all stuff from his show and Dinah says that they're just checking it to make sure there won't be any overlap in content. Mallet takes one of the DVD's from Ashlee's bag and is about to put it in her player when he stops himself. 'I'm a cop, not a TV cop.' He walks off, turning around so that he and Dinah can blow each other kisses. Dinah suspects that he's hiding something.

    Remy finds Tammy and pulls her away from her breakfast for a surprise. Josh, Cassie, Billy and Reva are in Towers around the bar wondering where Jonathan and Lizzie are since Alan's case has been thrown out. Alan appears and launches into an attack on Josh and his involvement in this mess and asks him if he's switched sisters again. Even Billy's offended, but Alan continues and demands that they tell him where Lizzie and the baby are. Lillian gestures to the doorway as the new parents walk in. Jonathan surveys the situation and says that he's 'glad to see not much has changed.' They walk in with the baby, announcing that they have named her Sarah. Lizzie tells Alan that the baby is fine and they've had her checked out by a doctor. Beth asks her if things are really okay and a glowing Lizzie says that they are. Remy and Tammy walk in. She's shocked to see them there and he explains that he tracked them down for her and told them about Alan's failure in court. Jonathan and Tammy stare at one another while Lizzie rolls her eyes. As Tammy moves closer, Lizzie tells her that she should hold the baby and puts her in her arms. It's a little much for her and she gives her back before congratulating Jonathan and moving away.

    Reva holds the baby and Jonathan asks if she's 'normal.' "Normal is boring,' says Reva. 'She's extraordinary.' For once, she'll be able to be with a child from the very beginning and all the way through her life. Josh welcomes Jonathan to parenthood before Alan interrupts to tell him that he can't keep the baby from it's mother's family. In response, Jonathan has Remy present Alan with a restraining order. 'I'm done being nice,' he announces before Alan grabs him by the throat. Remy pulls him off before Alan vows that Jonathan will be 'very sorry.' Lizzie says that they should go; they're trying to restrict the drama in the baby's life. She asks Josh, Cassie and Reva to come home with her, but Cassie says that she's going to stay with Tammy. Beth wants some time with Lizzie alone and, though she's reluctant, Jonathan says that it's fine: He'll take the baby home. Lizzie thanks him for everything and kisses him. 'Sarah's really brought everyone together.' Tammy sinks into the background watching them.

    Josh, Jonathan and Reva bring the baby to Cross Creek. Reva says that this is a good place to raise kids and starts to talk about how good Josh was with the children. Jonathan teases her and she teases him about Tammy. 'It sucks to miss someone when they're in the same room,' he admits. But Lizzie and Sarah are his life now. Later, while Jonathan and Josh watch Reva holding the baby, Josh thanks him for all the help he gave to Reva. 'No one's ever needed me before,' Jonathan says. 'That's called 'family',' Josh tells him.

    Tammy and Cassie are eating. Cassie tells her it must not be easy when Jonathan still looks at her the way he does. Tammy says that it only gets worse and she can't understand why Lizzie doesn't look happy after she's gotten everything that she wanted. Tammy's too annoyed by Lizzie to sit still and moves closer so that she can eavesdrop. Beth and Lizzie are sitting and Lizzie starts to cry. Beth thinks that she just feels overwhelmed, but Lizzie insists that that's not it. 'Things aren't working out,' she explains. She had expected Jonathan to fall in love with her when the baby came, but he doesn't give her anything at all. 'He's my husband, but he's not really mine.' After awhile, she calms down and says that she'd better get home. Sarah is 'the best trick in the book,' she tells Beth who gives her a concerned look. Explaining herself, she continues 'I love Sarah and I love what Sarah can do for me too.' Sarah will get her Jonathan. Tammy is completely agog and can't believe what she just heard. Cassie walks up to her and Tammy repeats what Lizzie just said. Cassie thinks she must have misunderstood, but Tammy thinks she's made a big mistake. Lizzie doesn't love her baby the way a mother should. Maybe giving up Jonathan wasn't the right thing to do after all and that baby doesn't belong with Lizzie.

    Next on GL:Tammy starts to make a plan. Mel tells Rick that she wants a divorce. Josh are Reva spend a lot of time together with the baby.

    I dont like where this show is starting to go......I want Lizzie and Jonathan to be together. The whole Tammy and Jonathan thing was getting really old....not to mention they are cousins. Lizzie is just being arrogant right now , I think that she will grow up if she can finally find a man that will love her and Sarah, Even if its not Jonathan.....They need to bring another good looking and nice man to the show... I wonder if they'll bring shane back to town?

    Oh, come on Lizzie. I thought that she had finally sarted to grow up, but alas, she is still the same person. I liked believing that Lizzie had changed. I wish Tammy wasn't so stuck on Jonathan. It would have been so much easier for Jon to be more committed to Lizzie. Oh, well. So Josh and Reva are going to start spending more time together, it says, now that the baby is here. That will be great. I hope they realize that they need to be together. Alan sucks. If he was served a restraining order, then would he not go to jail for choking Jonathan??? I don't really know. I was wondering.

    I think Lissie will make a goog mom. Maybe the baby is what will bring Riva and Josh closer but he should still have to Earn back the love. After all life with her sister makes no since the two of them belong with each other. Tammy shouldn't have to loose her love for the baby. He can be a good dad & be with her. Tammy,(with Riva's help) can become stronger as a single mother & maybe grow up to!

    lizzie deserves to have that baby take away she dont even want to be a mom she just and always has only cared about her self and no one else. and no matter what tammy and johnathan do belong together .

    I dont like where this show is going either. I can't believe that Lizzie is using her own baby as leverage to get closer to Jonathan. Lizzie really needs to grow up she has Jonathan. If she even heard him say that Sarah and Lizzie are his life now I think that she would be singing a different tune.I also think that it was a good idea for Jonathan and Lizzie come back. I beleive that Reva needs bonding time with her granddaughter.In regards to Tammy she really needs to move on with her life, she should be happy with Remy. Remy is a great guy in my opinon. I wonder if Gus and Harley will keep the baby that they found and that was brought back after her grandma died. I really hope that they do for the babys sake.

    I'm glad Tammy heard what Lizzie said. That's sad for her to use her baby to get a man that doesn't want her the way she wants him. I hope before he leaves the show, he leaves Lizzie and get back with Tammy.

    Gus needs to tell Harley he is sterile. There's nothing like having your own baby, but sometimes you have to resort to other measures. We all know through time they will adopt the baby whose parents went to jail and grandmother just died.

    I can't stand Lizzie, she is the same spoiled brat she's always been. She doesn't know how to be a good mother to that baby. Tammy was so good to her when she was pregnant and Lizzie schemes and plots to steal her man away, but he still doesn't really want her. There is a big difference between Josh and Cassie being together (they have known each other as brother and sister for a loong time) and Tammy and Jon (they began falling in love before they even knew they were related). I would much rather see Jon with his true love Tammy, who is a good person, than that pathetic excuse for a friend, mother and woman Lizzie. I do think the baby will bring Reva and Josh together, and Cassie will be busy helping Tammy try to get Jon back, so they will hopefully get back together.

    Lizzie, is a Spaulding, it is in her blood. She will do anything to get what she wants.

    Tammy needs to get on with her life, her first love was her cousin and no offense that is just wrong and disgusting. Remy is pouring out his heart to Tammy and she doesn't want to see it nor does she even care. Tammy deserves to be alone the way how she keeps on crapping on everybody because she isn't getting what she wants.
    Lizzie does need to grow up and to be honest so does Jonathan. They can do it together and learn to love each other for Sarah's sake. Jonathan made the first step by making the point that Sarah and Lizzie are his life now.
    Josh and Reva deserve to be together. Cassie needs to find a man similar to Josh....why is it that Cassie and Tammy have a problem with finding unavailable men? Like mother like daughter I suppose.
