    If I Didn't Know Better...

    Tuesday, May 27 2008

    Ethan tells Gertrude he should leave and Gertrude thanks him for saving her life. They hug and Gwen enters rolling her eyes at the two of them in an embrace. Gwen interrupts them holding a couple of glasses and a bottle of champagne. Ethan says it’s not what it looks like and Gwen says she understands because she’s the one who sent Ethan in to talk to Gertrude in the first place. She assumes Ethan told Gertrude about not undermining her and was just comforting her. Gertrude plays along and Gwen says she has amazing news. She excitedly lets Ethan know that the lady from the church called and they have a date for their wedding!

    Are You Ready to Die?

    Monday, May 26 2008

    While Ethan performs CPR on Gertrude, Little Ethan pleads with him to not let his mom die. Pilar whispers to her grandson not to let their secret out while Ethan and Gwen look confused over him calling Gertrude “mom”. Ethan says Gertrude is breathing again and then asks Little E why he called Gertrude “mom”. Pilar interjects and says that Little E has been traumatized by Theresa’s death and needs a mother figure and sees Gertrude as that. Ethan tries to call 911 to get Gertrude help, but the phone lines aren’t back up yet due to the earthquake. Pilar notices the color coming back into Theresa’s cheeks and prays that she will wake up. Ethan stares at Gertrude and Gwen asks him what’s wrong. He says he doesn’t know, but flashes back to telling Gertrude about Theresa and then him and Theresa having sex. Gwen asks Ethan to stop staring at Gertrude because it’s giving her the creeps and Ethan says there’s just something strange about her. Ethan tries to call 911 again and Gwen wonders what’s going on with him. Pilar notices Theresa’s wig coming off and panics while trying to put it back on without Ethan and Gwen noticing. She succeeds and Ethan kneels down next to Gertrude, as she opens her eyes. Ethan thanks her for saving Little Ethan’s life and she says any woman would have done the same thing. Gwen thinks to herself, “I have had it with this woman. She has got to go!” Ethan flashes back to his drug induced night with Theresa again and wonders why Gertrude makes him think about her.

    Ethan carries Gertrude up to her room and puts her in bed. Pilar tells Ethan she can take care of Gertrude now if he wants to leave and Gwen say that’s a good idea. Ethan says not yet and thanks Gertrude again for saving Little E’s life. Gwen takes Ethan’s hand and leads him out of the room. Little E comes to Theresa’s bedside to make sure his mother is okay. Theresa and Little E hug over both of them being alive.

    Ethan and Gwen go up to their room and discuss Little E referring to Gertrude as mom. Gwen makes jokes about Gertrude’s appearance and Ethan says it’s obvious Little E needs special attention right now and he’s glad they didn’t send him to boarding school. Gwen tells Ethan she wants to fire Gertrude and Ethan is shocked she wants to get rid of her after what she did tonight. Gwen thinks she’s becoming too obsessed with the children and is suspicious of her. Ethan just thinks she a good person. He doesn’t want to get rid of her, but he will tell Gertrude that Gwen doesn’t like her undermining her. He says that’s as far as he will go and the matter will be closed afterwards.

    Ethan goes to Gertrude’s room and sees that she’s sleeping. He sits down on the bed and asks, “What is it about you?” He asks why he’s so drawn to her and kisses her on the lips. Theresa wakes up and says, “Ethan” in her real voice and then covers using Gertrude’s accent.

    Let the Games Begin!

    Wednesday, May 21 2008

    Before the earthquake hits, Gwen tells Ethan she wants to fire Gertrude because she constantly undermines her. Ethan defends the nanny, but Gwen holds her ground. The quake hits and Gwen worries about the children, but Ethan thinks Gertrude is keeping them safe and calm. Gwen says after the quake, Gertrude has to go! Ethan says they’ll talk about it later and while the earthquake is still going on, they get up to make sure everyone is okay.

    Ethan and Gwen come out of the kids’ room and marvel that Jane and Jonathan slept through the quake. They go downstairs and see Pilar trying to pick up the bookshelf. Pilar tells them that Gertrude and Little Ethan are trapped under there and Ethan runs to help Pilar, as Gwen thinks at least she won’t have to fire Gertrude now. Ethan hears breathing and says they are still alive and Pilar tries to call for help, but the phones are down. Ethan lifts up the bookshelf and he and Pilar tend to Gertrude and Little Ethan. Ethan can’t believe Gertrude would sacrifice herself for Little Ethan and calls her incredible. Pilar carries an unconscious Little Ethan to the couch and Ethan realizes Gertrude isn’t breathing and says he can’t feel a pulse! As Ethan gives Theresa mouth to mouth, he flashes back to the night Theresa drugged him and they had sex. Ethan stops and looks confused for a moment, but then goes back to trying to revive Gertrude. Pilar worries that Ethan will realize Gertrude is really Theresa, while Gwen wishes Gertrude would wake up or die already. Little Ethan comes to and sees Theresa passed out on the floor and yells out, “Don’t let mommy die!” Ethan wants to know why Little Ethan called Gertrude mommy.

    The New Sheridan Crane!

    Monday, May 19 2008

    Gwen gets a phone call in her and Ethan’s bedroom and tells Ethan that the driver is ready to take Little Ethan to boarding school. Ethan lashes out at Gwen for making the arrangements and says it’s not what Theresa would want. Gwen says she thinks the child psychologist was convincing and that sending him to boarding school is the right thing to do. She thinks Ethan should listen to his wife instead of Theresa’s ghost and demands he make a decision between them right now.

    Dressed as Gertrude, Theresa tells Pilar she wants to live openly with Ethan, but Pilar tells her that’s impossible. Little Ethan barges in saying Gwen and Ethan are going to make him go to boarding school tonight! Theresa doesn’t understand how Ethan could do this and Pilar says its all Gwen’s doing. Little Ethan asks Theresa if there’s anything she can do to stop him from leaving, but Theresa says if they find out she’s alive they will all be killed. Ethan and Gwen enter and ask what she’s talking about. Gertrude says they were talking about how Little E’s mother wouldn’t want him to go to boarding school. Pilar says she thought Ethan wasn’t going to send Little E away, but Ethan says Gwen is his wife and they are going to make the decision together. Gertrude appeals to Ethan’s love for Theresa and Gwen says it’s not her place to discuss the situation and sends her out of the room. Pilar pleads with them not to send Little E away, but Ethan says he grew to love boarding school and he has to trust Gwen’s judgment on this.

    Pilar pulls Gwen aside and accuses her of sending Little E away in an attempt to get Theresa out of Ethan’s heart. Gwen admits she’s just trying to smoke Theresa out because she knows she saw her upstairs with Ethan. Pilar insists she’s dead, but Gwen thinks she’s alive and would never let her little boy go off to boarding school. Gertrude runs in the room saying there’s something she needs to tell Ethan about Theresa and her. She says she was going through Theresa’s things because after hearing everything about her, she started to identify with her. She says she found a letter she wrote about Jane and Little E and that Ethan should read it before sending the boy away. Ethan looks at the note that is dated before she went to Mexico, which says if something should happen she wants Little E and Jane to stay in Harmony close to their family. Gwen thinks the letter is a little too convenient, but Ethan says they should respect Theresa’s wishes. Gwen says the handwriting isn’t Theresa’s and accuses Gertrude of writing it. Pilar pulls out a letter that Theresa wrote her when Antonio died that she always keeps with her. She asks them to compare the handwriting and Gwen begrudgingly says they match. Ethan says he will never go against Theresa’s wishes and that Little E doesn’t have to go to boarding school. Pilar pulls Gwen aside again and asks if she’s convinced Theresa is dead. Gwen says yes and Ethan takes Little Ethan to get a midnight snack. Little E looks back at Theresa and gives her the thumbs up sign. Gwen can’t believe that even in death Theresa always wins.
