Full detailed profile on Theresa Lopez-Fitzgerald Crane Played by Lindsay Hartley on Passions Daytime Soap Opera.
Theresa and Ethan are one step from making mad passionate love in Chris' office while Gwen and Jared are outside the office door, wondering where their errant significant others are. They hear noises in the office which causes Jared to knock on the door. He thinks it must be Chris working late. He calls out to him asking if he's seen Theresa or Ethan and interrupts the two from making love—temporarily.
Theresa thinks that they should just let Jared and Gwen see them together but Chris doesn't want to. He's not leaving his wife.
Jared tries the door and finds it locked. He enters the security code but gets it wrong. Ethan starts to panic. And Gwen becomes suspicious. To her, if both Ethan and Theresa are missing then they must be together.
Theresa calls Ethan a hypocrite. Ethan admits he is a bad husband and a weak and bad man. Theresa says he just made a mistake when he married Gwen. Divorce Gwen and that will make everything alright.
Theresa repeats that Ethan can have it all but Ethan wants to be loyal to Gwen. Theresa points out that he really sucks at the loyalty thing. He keeps on cheating on his wife with her because he can't stay away from her. She is his dream woman. She tells him to stop fighting it and make love to her.
When they don't find Theresa waiting for them at Jared's office, Gwen decides to go look for her and Ethan.
It seems like Ethan will give Theresa what she wants right there on Chris' desk. Gwen and Jared are back outside the office door. This time Jared has the right security code.
At Crane's, Theresa screams as someone scares her from behind.
It's only Ethan. Theresa lays into him for scaring her telling him he can't just go wandering around the building anymore. He tells her he was looking for her to let her know that her trick didn't work. He read every piece of material she brought to him in record time. Ethan just wants to talk professional to professional and as friends. Theresa's not buying it. She's too angry. She thinks that Ethan is jealous because she's finally moved on and that Ethan wants to control her but that's not going to happen anymore.
Ethan questions how much Theresa really knows about Jared. Theresa recites Jared's resume and then reminds Ethan that he is married and he ought to go back to his wife. Ethan takes the moral high road and tells Theresa he's just there to get Theresa to be the good guy and settle this case with Stewart. This would be her chance to set a good example for little Ethan. Theresa says that's the reason she's fighting the case—for little Ethan. The company is his legacy. Then it's back on the low road again. Theresa tells big Ethan she can't take seeing him all the time so "unless it's in court, I never want to see you again."
Ethan says he can't accept that but only because they're friends and because he's very confused. He thought Crane was going to be his destiny. Now he's just another lawyer on the make. With tears streaming down her face, a very emotional Theresa tells him he can fulfill his destiny because he still loves her. He can be CEO, her husband, and raise little Ethan. He can have it all.
As Fox eavesdrops on this touching scene, Ethan tells her any man would kill for a chance like that but there was still a hitch—Gwen. Theresa says that was her stupid fault for letting Ethan keep on seeing his ex. Fox realizes he's making the same mistake and runs back to Kay.
Ethan makes an attempt to leave but Theresa locks the door. She tells him she knows he loves her and proves it by kissing him passionately against the door. He kisses her back. His shirt disappears as they're about to do the nasty.
