    Sheridan, I Love you but...

    Monday, June 30 2008

    "Weddings are complicated," Ethan explains to Gertrude as they go into his room. He had no idea. He hands Gertrude Gwen's "to-do" list and asks her to get to work: Gwen deserves the best, he says. Gertrude thought he still loved Theresa. He says he has to keep that locked up in heart. Theresa wonders if she's going to be forced to watch Ethan re-commit to Gwen. "There is no way out," she decides, forcing a smile. As Ethan goes through the wedding instructions, Gwen interrupts, telling Gertrude she doesn't want her involved with this. Theresa is disturbed by this and wonders what she's up to.

    Pretty's big Secret.

    Wednesday, June 25 2008

    In Little Ethan's room, Ethan asks Gertrude if she's in love with him. She thinks this over and tells herself that she can't reveal the truth. "Why does love have to be so difficult?" she cries. He repeats his question but she says she doesn't love him. He begins apologizing but she tells him he's amazing and any woman could fall in love with him. "Maybe in another place and another time, things could be different..." she says. He leaves and she repeats to herself that no one can discover that she's alive. She packs her bag and flashes back to thoughts of Ethan. Stopping herself, she calls her mother and asks her why she can't have a happy ending with Ethan.

    "Theresa has to be Gertrude," Gwen concludes downstairs. She thinks back over all the hints and assumes that Little Ethan must have known the whole time. Rebecca is convinced. They repeat Theresa is Gertrude over and over again. "She is going to wish the sharks had eaten her," Gwen says. As Rebecca pours a drink, Gwen tells her that this is all her fault: She's the one who hired Gertrude. Rebecca tells her that she should be mad at Theresa, not her. Gwen apologizes and wonders what to do next. Rebecca gets a flash: "Call Juanita immediately." Gwen can't do that; she can't be responsible for the children dying. Rebecca says they can keep the children safe but this is the only way to deal with Theresa. "Deal with Theresa? What are you talking about?" Ethan asks, walking in. Before they can say anything, Gertrude arrives. Ethan explains to her that Gwen and Rebecca are talking about dealing with Theresa and he needs to know what it means. Rebecca suggests that Gertrude can answer all of his questions about Theresa.

    She's not Dead!

    Tuesday, June 24 2008

    Theresa paces in Little Ethan's room with the letter in her hands. She wonders how she can tell Ethan how she feels. He sticks his head in and asks her if there's something he needs to know. Theresa tells herself that Gwen poses a bigger threat than Juanita and turns to Ethan, telling him that she has a secret for him to keep. She then remembers that what she wants to say would mean doom for her children and tries to back out of it. He promises that she can trust him. Sitting on the bed, she explains that she is being kept from a very special man and she doesn't know if she can go on without him. "Maybe you don't have to," he suggests. She explains how much she wishes they could somehow end up together; she prays every day for it. It would kill her if she couldn't be with him. After listening to this, he apologizes for taking advantage of her as his "sounding board" about all things Theresa. She tells him how good and caring he is as she stares into his eyes. Taking all of her hints together, he asks her if she is in love with him.

    Macho Gorilla.

    Monday, June 23 2008

    Theresa paces around Little Ethan's room talking to herself about how Ethan will never read her letter. Ethan walks into the room and explains that the letter from Theresa has suddenly vanished. He thanks her for being there to talk to; he feels so close to her. "I'm here for you anytime," she blushes. He explains that he really does love Gwen... you just can't compare her to Theresa. But Theresa is dead and the kids need a mother. Marriage doesn't have to be exciting: It can just be nice and produce children who are productive member of society. Theresa suggests he wait and see if anyone else comes along. "Any other woman would pale in comparison to Theresa," he says before walking off. She decides to write the same letter and plant it again. After she writes it, she realizes that Gwen might find it and realize that it's a duplicate. Since this won't work, she'll have to come up with something new.

    At Sheridan's cottage, Pretty smiles at the vial of acid she holds in her hands. She giddily imagines turning her sister's face into a "seething mass of scar tissue". Sheridan is disturbed, but Pretty is sure this is the only way to get the man she loves. After threatening her aunt, she storms off. "What am I going to do?" Sheridan worries. She realizes that Pretty is right though. Luis won't stay with Fancy if she's disfigured and, since he won't go with Pretty either, that will leave him for her. That's what she wants, but she can't go along with this... or can she? She's not the one throwing acid in Fancy's face... Her moral questioning is interrupted when Ethan walks through the front door. "What's the matter? You look like you just lost your best friend," he says. He guesses this is about Fancy and Luis; he knows just how she feels, even if he still has Gwen. He admits he's still in love with Theresa. She advises him to keep that to himself. At least he has someone... she has no one: Luis is with her niece. Ethan reminds her that she married another man and she needs to accept that Luis has moved on. "He still loves me and he will realize it once..." she stops herself. He asks her to explain, sensing that she is hiding something that she knows is wrong. "Love only happens when there's honesty," he says. Theresa's lies destroyed his love for her and ended up causing her death. She tells him his lecture is misguided. He leaves, sure that she'll do the right thing

    You Killed Roberto?

    Wednesday, June 18 2008

    At the mansion, Theresa is packing up, unable to face seeing Ethan and Gwen getting married. Ethan walks in and glumly walks across the room. Theresa suggests that he doesn't seem too excited about the wedding. He's not; Gwen is marvelous but Theresa will always be the woman in his heart. She tells him that a love like Theresa's doesn't disappear even if she is in Heaven or someplace else... Ethan wonders how she can know such mystical things and asks her how she can know so much about Theresa. "It is so clear now," he starts. She always seems to understand him but how can that be since his love is gone and will never come back? He starts to babble; he doesn't know how he can marry Gwen when he knows they can't have the life he wants. He's sure that Theresa would want the children to have a mother though. "Any mother?" Theresa asks. He talks about how much Theresa loved her children and how good a mother Gwen is. Theresa suggests that he's wrong. He doubts it. Remembering the letter, he starts searching for it so he can read it. As he walks off to search, Theresa wonders how she can tell him what she wants now that Gwen has destroyed the letter.
