    How Do You Murder a Ghost?

    Monday, March 24 2008
    Rebecca gives Gwen some interesting advice on seducing Ethan, Ethan and Ivy have a heart to heart, Theresa sneaks in to see Little E, and Fancy lays down the law with Pretty and Sheridan.

    Upstairs in the Crane mansion, Rebecca gives Gwen some "emergency" lingerie in order to help her give Ethan the best sex he's ever had. Gwen laughs at her mother while Rebecca pulls out some S&M gear. Gwen thinks her mother is ridiculous, but Rebecca asks if Gwen wants to spend the rest of her life competing with Theresa's ghost. Gwen answers, "Oh God no," and Rebecca tells her to get to it then! Rebecca gets Gwen more "tools of the trade," but Gwen doesn't even know what half the stuff is. Rebecca tells her daughter to become the sex goddess of Harmony, but Gwen isn't sure Ethan is even into any of it. Rebecca says of course he is and once Gwen fulfills his fantasies, Theresa's ghost won't stand a chance. Rebecca then offers up some pornos she's made of herself to help get Ethan in the mood. Embarrassed, Gwen declines. Gwen later models her lingerie of choice and Rebecca notes that it's like lingerie a nun would wear. Gwen thinks Ethan will approve and lights some candles. Rebecca tells her that sex and romance are two separate things and blows out the candles. She says Gwen needs to focus on the sex and make him forget about Theresa.

    Believing that Theresa is on the wharf, Ethan turns and says, "Theresa, you're here?" He sees a woman and hugs her. The woman turns out to be Ivy, but Ethan says he felt Theresa's presence. Ivy tells her son that Theresa is gone, but Ethan won't hear it. Theresa watches Ethan and Ivy and says to herself no matter how hard it is, she has to protect the people she loves and walks away. Ivy tries to convince Ethan that Theresa is dead and wasn't on the wharf. She urges him to accept her death and move on. Ethan says he has accepted her death, but can't get her out of his heart and doesn't even want to. He says there will never be anyone else and Ivy asks what about Gwen? He says he's made a commitment to her, but she will never be Theresa. Ivy suggests he think back to when he first fell in love with Gwen and tap into those feelings. He compares his love for Theresa with Ivy's love for Sam and says no one will ever replace her because she will be in his heart till the day he dies. Ivy asks Ethan to leave himself open to loving someone else like Gwen, because Theresa would want him to find love and happiness again. Ethan says it will take time and Ivy suggests that Gwen can help him get over his loss and eventually the memories of Theresa will fade. Ethan retorts he doesn't want his memories to fade and Ivy says that's his problem. Ethan vows he will never stop loving Theresa. Ivy says Theresa's death isn't his fault, but Ethan insists it is. Ivy asks him to allow a little happiness into his life and urges Ethan to give Gwen a chance.

    Theresa goes to confession and tells Father Lonigan her story. She says she knows it's a shock that she's alive, but she needed to talk to someone and urges him to keep her secret.
    Theresa later returns to the docks and looks at the device and sees Ethan tuck Little Ethan into bed. Little Ethan tells Ethan he had another dream about Theresa being lost and calling out his name. Ethan offers to stay with him until he falls asleep, but Little E thinks he will be okay. Little E says he said a prayer for his mother and hopes that she is happy in heaven. Ethan bets she is and thinks she is watching them right now. Little E says he loves and misses her and Ethan hugs him. Theresa watches all this and runs off saying she needs to see her son.

    Fancy enters the cottage and sees Sheridan and Pretty together. She tells them they need to have a serious talk. Fancy apologizes for her "inexcusable behavior," saying she feels bad for how she treated them and Marty. Sheridan doesn't want to hear her apology and tells her to stay away from her son! Fancy asks Sheridan to give her a chance to prove she's not the same person who went after Marty that night, but Sheridan tells her niece she's too unpredictable to be around him. Fancy wonders if Sheridan's objections are more about Luis than about Marty and tells both her aunt and sister that she won't let either of them sabotage her relationship. She vows to fight them both to the death for Luis if she has to. Sheridan counters that if their love is so strong she shouldn't be worried and tells Fancy that Luis's memories of her will always be alive and that they have a bond that is unbreakable. Fancy retorts that Sheridan is Luis's past, but she is his present and future. Fancy then turns to Pretty and tells her sister that Luis only had sex with her because Alistair forced him to. Pretty responds that Luis assured her he would have sex with her under uncoerced circumstances and Fancy calls her pathetic. She says Luis just didn't want to hurt her feelings and insists he would never make love to her again. The sisters argue and Pretty goes for Fancy's throat. Sheridan pulls her off and Fancy adamantly tells Sheridan and Pretty that she will not give Luis up and if she has to lose them both in the process, then so be it! Fancy then gloats about the romantic dinner Luis prepared for her and says she needs to get back to him. Pretty and Sheridan think they have to figure out a way to get Fancy out of the picture.

    Rebecca meets Ivy on the wharf who tells her Ethan is in bad shape and that she wants him happy with Gwen. Rebecca says it won't be a problem if Gwen does what she instructed. Ivy is afraid Ethan will spend the rest of his life pining over Theresa and worries that Gwen won't stand a chance. Rebecca says it's up to them to get Ethan and Gwen together, but Ivy says they have a problem. She asks, "How do you murder a ghost?"

    Ethan comes up to Gwen's dimly lit room and finds her in bed waiting for him. He's a little confused, but walks over to her. She pulls him into bed and kisses him. Ethan tells her that Theresa is still in his heart and Gwen says she's not interested in his heart. Ethan remarks he's never seen her like this and Gwen tells him to stop her if he doesn't like it. She continues to kiss him and Ethan responds.

    Theresa goes into Little E's room while he's asleep and hugs him. Little E wakes up and says, "Mommy? It's you. You're alive!"

    Next on Passions:

    Fancy asks Luis to teach her the tango.

    Pretty and Sheridan secretly watch Fancy and Luis dance. Sheridan is outraged, exclaiming, "That's our move!"

    Ethan calls out Theresa's name while having sex with Gwen.

    Theresa tells Little E that she is never going to leave him again.

    I don't beleive it talk about get your own life. Why is Fancy repeating Shius's relationship? Is it because she doesn't know how else to get him to love her. Next thing you know she'll want his baby. That'll be the day I stop watching. What'll that make Marty and the unborn baby? brothers/ uncle/nephew? how sick is this its almost as bad as Vincent. Come on time for a new story line please.

    How ridiculous! If i have to go through so much trouble to keep a man or to win him over, then i wouldn't bother with him (he wouldn't worth my effort). Gwenilla you are such a pathetic low life loser.

    I want to see Luis back with Sheridan and she is right, " the tango is Luis and Sheridan's dance."

    Ivy you should be ashamed of yourself, for being the worst mother there is on the show....Rebecca is kinky but she still is a better mother you are.

    Rebecca hmm, is just a lunatic as always.

    Theresa i hope you are in Harmony to really shake things up a bit where your enemies are concerned.

    iwant lius and sheridan not with fancy . and gwen 2 get what she deserves. and fancey actually on the 1 of thisweeks episodes does tell luis she wants ababy. and this is really bad this is why passions is not working luis andsheeridan arent together the good times the romance they shared and so good together. not these new couples ilike fancey when she was with noah they need 2 be together if slviana not coming back. these are the couples that need 2 be together luis and sheridan , eve and tc . fox and kay played by justin hartley. and charity and migul as jesse or other migul the 1 that plays him now is terible. his name is blair. whitney and chad cant belive they killed chad awful people. 1st charity please come back. grace and sam. ivy and julian . jessica and hank if come back on. petty and the guy they showed in flashbacks when fancey was ruining her life. esme iuse 2 love her but the things she says anyway istill kindof like her. so put her with some new guy. and make it turn up there is a valerie and she is locked up. and ihate vincent and if he does have ababy take it away from him and let eve raise the baby or the real valerie.

    Has everyone forgotten about Sheridan marrying Chris Booth? Which, I wish I knew what happened with that b/c I don't have sattelite, I only know what I read from the updates. For a few months I didn't even have internet. Anyhow though,Sheridan broke Luis's heart a long time ago, and that made me sad b/c she really should have left Chris. Oh, and what about when she married his own brother Antonio. And about everyone else...hmm. I really always wanted Kay and Miguel to be together, definatley Sam and Grace (I can't stand Ivy),Theresa and Ethan, I like Piloma and Noah, Eve and old whatshisface. The thing I want to stress the most is that Gwen should go throw herself off a very high bridge

    Super Couples:

    Theresa and Ethan
    Sheridan and Luis
    Miguel and Charity (if she should return)
    Kay and Reece (if he should return)or Fox
    Whitney and Chad
    Julian and Eve
    Sam and Grace
    Fancy and Noah

    Couples that doesn't really matter to me:
    Paloma and whoever
    Ivy and whoever
    Rebecca and whoever
    Gwenilla and maybe Hank (if he should return)
    Simone and whoever
    Allistair and Tabitha (LMAO)
    TC and whoever (he is too ignorant for my liking)

    Writers please put everything back the way it was. I am tired of these new faces and change of partners.

    WHAT IS WRONG WITH PASSIONS!!!!!!!!First of all don't make us think that Ethan will see Theresa if he really wont.Why don't you all let Ethan and Theresa see each other and then Theresa tell her family later.And why do you all keep secrets for so long ya'll never bring them out why keep making them then.Passions used to be my favorite Soap but not any more ya'll are so PREDICTABLE!And why do every couple on Passions have to have sex 24-hours a day,I mean really!!!

    Posted by DeVine_Right at Tuesday, March 25 2008 12:26 PM

    Looks like Passions is trying to keep our attention again. I hope this week something just happens good or bad. Don't get me wrong I am a huge fan but it's been a little dull lately. Or it seems like a situation is going to occur then nothing.

    I am so ready for Tess and Ethan to get back to their lives and unite their little family with Jonathan although I question his paternity. Gwen does not deserve her son she almost let him die to just to be with a man. Hope the ball is rolling.
