    Current: Heads up Crane Industries


    Julian is the son of the powerful Alistair Crane. His family has ruled Harmony for many years and they have a way of getting what they want. Julian fell in love with Eve many years ago and the two of them had a child that was stillborn. Eve was not aware that Julian knew anything about their son. Eve and Julian separated when she met T.C and Julian ended up marrying Ivy. His marriage to Ivy was planned by both sets of parents. Her family needed financial support and his family needed a good moral reputation. There were many affairs (on his behalf) over the years and it was clear that he was discontented with their marriage. The one highlight of their marriage was their son Ethan. That all ended when Julian (and the rest of Harmony) discovered that Ethan was really Sam Bennett�s son with Ivy�not his!

    Julian started to rebel against his father and focus on his family. While in Bermuda finalizing his divorce from Ivy, Julian had a run in with Theresa. She was there trying to get him to reinstate Ethan as the Crane heir. Being the womanizer that he is, Julian played along and filled Theresa with fine champagne. Much to his surprise, the two of them woke up the next morning�married! Julian was persistent to annul the marriage, but Theresa wasn't as willing as he was. Theresa wanted to get what she came for first. When Julian consulted with his father regarding the situation, his answer was to kill the three women in his life who are causing the problems. Before that plan could be carried out, someone ended up shooting Julian. The body was never found and it launched an investigation with numerous suspects!

    With Julian out of the picture, his latest wife Theresa tried to stake claim to the Crane fortune. Julian was actually away chasing the yellow brick road with Timmy (on a quest for the Demon�s Horn). They finally found the Horn and made their way back to Harmony, just as Theresa was being executed for Julian�s murder. Timmy was defeated by his final battle with Zombie Charity. In a moment of weakness, Tabitha and Julian turned to each other after Timmy had passed away. Their fling resulted in a daughter�Endora. It was then realized that Theresa was expecting Julian�s child. Julian and Theresa managed to live together for a while, but he was thrilled to learn that he and Theresa were never legally married. Even though he won the baby in the custody trial, he still allowed him to stay with his mother. Rebecca coerced Julian into going for full custody after Theresa was involved with Sarah�s death. The courts did side with Julian and he decided to sign over all parental rights so that Ethan and Gwen could adopt the child. Julian also began to become closer with his true love�Eve. This was a difficult time since he had already married Rebecca, but he finally made the decision that he had to be with Eve.

    Thursday, August 07 2008: There is Finally Harmony in Harmony.

    The crowd from the basement joins those in the church and they catch everyone up on what just happened with Theresa, Ethan and Juanita. Julian and Eve then reciprocate and explain about the volcano and the lava. The earth starts to shake again and Father Lonigan and Tabitha stand around the holy water, but they are having a hard time because the dark side is trying to prevent her from becoming baptized. Julian asks Endora to use her magic to help things and Endora zaps the bowl of holy water. The shaking stops and Father Lonigan baptizes Tabitha, but the volcano erupts again. Miguel says it didn’t work and Kay thinks the good side just needs some time to prevail over centuries of evil. Everyone is confused and Esme explains how Tabitha is a witch and gave up her powers for the good of the town. Esme tells everyone that Endora and Kay are witches too and Sam is shocked. Kay explains that all the Standish women have powers. They all listen to the volcano as it quiets down and Julian says Timmy was right, baptizing Tabitha saved their lives. Suddenly a bright light shines on everyone and they all stand with arms raised up to it. Tabitha cries and tells Endora that she’s truly happy for the first time in all her lifetimes because she knows what it is to feel happiness born of God’s love. Endora says she’ll live an eternal life like Timmy. Tabitha thanks Timmy because there was forgiveness for her after all and she will dwell in the house of the Lord forever. Tabitha says there is only good magic in Harmony now – no more evil or demons. Sam asks, “What about the Cranes?” Julian responds that his father is dead and from now on Crane Industries will only do good things. Ivy says, “Redemption or not; I really need a drink!” Esme is way ahead of her with a bottle of pills and champagne.

    As Theresa walks down the aisle Fancy tells Luis that she’s pregnant. Luis is thrilled and Sheridan tells Antonio that will be them some day. Noah comments to Paloma that they will wait to have babies until they have more money, but Paloma tells him she’s pregnant too. Eve tells Julian there’s finally harmony in Harmony. Julian says all is quiet on every front and sadly looks down at his lap and says, "A little too quiet." Kay and Miguel tell him that everyone knows what happened and Kay offers to fix it. Julian and Eve say they would be most grateful and Kay takes his hand and magically corrects his “member” much to Eve and Julian’s delight.

    Wednesday, August 06 2008: I Wallowed in Love but it's Wrong.

    Upstairs, Tabitha laughs after Kay tells her that she was just in Heaven. Kay's not sure why they let her in, but it was beautiful. Eve's having a hard time dealing with this: "First everyone goes to Hell and then everybody goes to Heaven... who is your travel agent?" Tabs just wants to hear about Timmy but the thought is interrupted when baby Endora suddenly appears. She tells her mother that Timmy told her how to stop the disaster. Eve wants to drink the sacrificial wine. Julian tells her to stop; life may be strange, but they can face anything as long as they're together. Kay explains that Tabitha needs to do something to save Harmony. Endora bursts out laughing. A drunken Esme stumbles in looking for the weddings. She wonders where the priest is; she needs to make a confession again - she was down at the wharf when the fishing boats came in and she became the catch of the day. She strolls out, saying that she saw lava running down the street outside.

    Back upstairs, Kay kneels down and tells Tabitha that she has to be baptized. "Let some decrepit old priest pour water on my head and consecrate my life to the wrong side? No, not me!" Tabs snaps. Kay tells her that God is the right side. "Not where I come from," Tabs insists. There's no way she's doing this. The last time she had anything to do with a baptism, John the Baptist's head ended up on a platter. Kay and Endora beg her to save the town. She refuses. Miguel reminds her that the magma is outside the church. She still refuses; she's always been a Dark Side witch. Julian reminds her she's not a witch anymore. Tabitha still refuses to betray the Dark Side. Julian tells her to give something to the town. She continues to refuse. Kay tells her that being baptized is actually a gift. Tabitha doesn't follow. Miguel explains that it means eternal life. Tabs had that before she gave up her powers. Kay says this isn't the witch version of eternal life where you're condemned to spending centuries doing evil. "Some of us like that sort of thing," Tabs points out.

    Meanwhile, Kay makes the pitch for Heaven again but Tabitha doesn't like all the singing and dancing or the wings. Kay reminds her that Timmy is there and may never see her again if she doesn't do this. Tabitha misses the boy, but she'd have to die to see him. Miguel explains what eternal life means but Tabs thinks they all just want to save themselves. Eve argues that if Julian can change and use the Crane empire for good, she can be good too. Tabitha wants to stay evil. Kay tells her she stopped being evil when Timmy came into her life. "I wallowed in love but it's wrong," Tabitha insists. Kay has never met another witch who has friends and makes sacrifices for her neighbors. Tabs is tired of being bullied and insists she doesn't have a heart. Endora conjures up a device so that she can hear her heart beat. She's baffled; she doesn't have a heart, she repeats. Kay says that love has made her human. Everyone continues prodding her to be baptized. This is Endora's dream, the only way she and her mother can be together forever. Looking in her little girl's eyes, Tabs finally agrees to do it for her. Everyone except Tabitha is relieved. Kay tries to zap up Father Lonigan to perform the ritual but gets Esme instead.
