LIVE BLOGGING: Thursday's Episode of Guiding Light



Hey y'all! Mel Here to bring you the next to last episode EVER of Guiding Light! Let's see if I can get through this episode and not cry at least 3 times! I doubt it though!

Drop me a line in the comments and tell me what you want to see!

And away we go! Recap from yesterday! Who else forgot Beth had that other baby Peyton? LOL

Damn Alan was cremated fast?!? Doesn't it take a while to emblam ppl! Oh well, we don't have that long.

Why would a college call Daisy at Company?? Just wondering. Anywho, YAY for Daisy! GO TO COLLEGE GIRL!! I'm trying not to go hard on her for the last days.

LOL to Jon drinking outta the carton! Then Reva does right after him after she gripes at him for doing it. LMAO for Jon asking Reva if she was stoned!

Lewis Construction! Robert Newman is SO FINE!!! He's like a fine wine, he just get better with age! Kidnap Reva, Josh! KIDNAP HER!! Hell , I will HELP YOU!! Just do it....NOW!!!!

I'm LOVING this old school truck that Josh has all of a sudden. Yes, YES Josh! You should have kidnapped Reva long long ago. LOL Billy's a chicken!

I agree with Buzz! Go to College Daisy! To hell with James...Hold up on second thought that's another fine man...LOL

Awwww, Phillip and Aunt Alex! Marj Dusay is KILLING IT!!! Such subtle performances. Get it Marj!

Awww Frankie and Blakie! B for Blake! LOL. Why is Christina in this scene! OH LORD IT'S MY HUSBAND CYRUS!!!! Why is he NOT SHIRTLESS!! He should always and FOREVER be shirtless!

Lewis and a few others Family Lunch. Josh and Reva scenes! They make me smile. Oh yeah Reva. Josh wants some of you chicken. Actually he wants ALL of it if you know what I mean.

YAY for Danny and Michelle moving back to SF! Oh Nancy St. Alban and this hair....oh foots. I said I wasn't gonna go hard.

Hey Remy! Red is a good color on you. Olivia just came outta NO WHERE!! LOL. I love her line. "Yeah, then your not married"

Jeffrey/Prince Richard WHY are you on my screen . If your still Jeffrey, please go somewhere and STAY!! Dont come back. I call him Jeffrey/Prince Richard b/c Bradley Cole is clean shaven and that in my mind means Prince Richard NOT Jeffrey! Silly GL!

Why couldn't we have more Josh/Billy scenes over these last couple of years? I miss them so!

Ed and Rick! I love how all the Bauers move back at the end! Why couldn't we DO THAT BEFORE THE SHOW WAS CANCELLED! MERCY!!

This Jeffrey/Edmudn stuff is STUPID!!! And y'all know I LOVE Edmund! I wish Edmund would just bust a cap in Jeffrey's ass and call it a day.

Where in the GL hell are Buzz, Lillian, Bill, Lizzie and the rest of the Spauldings! Lizzie: I always loved this spot! Funny how I've NEVER seen it before and I've watched for 20 years!

Remy and Christina! I'm SO OVER this running joke of them NOT being married! It was cute and fun the first time but I've had enough. But they are a cute couple, even I have to admit that. Awww Pregnant! How cute!

Oh LAWD!!! There goes my husband lookin like PURE SEX AGAIN!!!! How I wish I was Mel on GL rather than Mel on DC right now! Sweet Mercy!!! I'm going to LICK MY SCREEN that MAN IS SOOOOO FINE!!!! Yeah, Damn those cookes Mel! I'd love for Cyrus to have ALL of my cookies!!!

And I'm back in soap land! Lewis Lunch.

Spauldings saying goodbye to Alan. Marcy Rylan is soooooo short! But sooooo adorable! Of course Buzz has to say something. He's the great orator of SF now that Ross is gone! Oh mercy...Ross! Look what I did, I'm tearing up again.

Buzz giving a speech about Alan! Tina Sloan's face is heartbreaking during all this! Oh Marj Dusay is another one that if you look at you WILL bust out into tears!

Spreading Alan's ashes! I LOVE how we don't have any music here. Just the sound of the water. So Real and So Appropriate! Oh Alex! "Bye My Brother." and There go the tears!

Watching the commercials for Survivor! The Hick in the beginning needs to get off of tv and go back on the turnip truck he fell off of!!

Awww Phillip and James! I do have to say it does bother me a little bit that James told Phillip he didn't like him a week ago but now everythings all good! Just saying. Awwwww fly James, Fly! That Zach Conroy is another hottie!

Frank is too busy MACKIN on the dating site with Blake to pay attention to Rick and his foolishness! Since when can you have a LAPTOP IN THE KITCHEN!!! I'm surprised this place hasn't burned down yet!

OH LORDIE!! CYRUS NAK....................That sound you just heard was me hitting the floor! I WANT TO BE MEL ON GL!!!

Henry is the cutest soap baby I have EVER SEEN!!! I mean that. Why is he wearing purple pants....oh it doesn't matter he's so precious!

Awwww Jon and Reva walking hand and hand. Random Yellow house that Cassie bought for Jon and Tammy.

Oh Hell! Jeffrey's back. ARe you kidding me with this mess GL?? Somebody deserves the V8 Stupid Slap for putting this on tv for the next to last show! Hey Edmund! Look at you and your evil self! Edmund just Shoot Him and be done with it! We are wasting time on them when we could be seeing Josh and Reva scenes, or anything with Alex and Phillip! I love how Edmund just blew Jeffrey kiss! Like see ya, Punk!

OMG ED AND HOLLY!!! Go with HIm Holly! Go!

Phillip and Beth! Just kiss her Phillip! Y'all have wasted enough time!

Alex and Bizzie! Hilda is looking all kinds of pregnant! OMG FLETCHER!!!! ALEX AND FLETCHER!!!! I'm crying again!!

Daisy telling James she's going to college.....in some coochie cutters! If she's not careful she's gonna catch something if they get any shorter!

Josh and Billy! LOVE THEM!!

Oh the previews! I'm still crying about Alex and Fletcher!! OMG!!!

That's it for today y'all! Join me again Tomorrow at 2pm CST for The Finale Episode of GL! I'm sure it's gonna be a Tear Jerker! Drop me a line in the comments and tell me what you thought of today's episode!!

Okay so Jeffrey fighting that guard looked more like sexual foreplay to me

Enjoyed the blogging Mel.......you got a lot of Cyrus..congrats LOL
Jeffrey on the roof fighting day player....no just no

Loved Robert Newman saying goodby to everyone..he was very emotional. Hell Kim Zimmer, Grant Alexzader..so full of emotion...
Grant made me cry last few days...

Looks like they paired up almost everyone-except Josh & Reva..I guess we have to wait till the last episode.

Is a lighthouse going to get in somewhere? What happened to that light Reva put in the window for Jeffrey? Is it still there?

Can't believe one more show...then the rest is silence......

Today Show was well written and thought out! It seems as though they are tying up all loos ends with every character on the canvas....And also gives an impression there life after Sept 18 for as story and character wise....Love seeing fan favs, Holly, Ed, Fletcher,but do wish Fletcher would have brought back Meg for Holly....Lastly, the whole jeffrey and edmund storyline could have been omitted...ALL and ALL great tear jerking, riveting emotional scences from Reva, Jon, Billy, Josh, Beth, Philip, Marj, Buzz, Lillian!

The best of today for me is the surprise appearance of Ed at Holly's door! This takes me back to fulfill a need all the way back to when Holly(different Holly)was blonde! I have always wanted them to end up together but I gave up on that idea. Wow, the writers came thru on this one!

It was sure great seeing Danny, Michelle, Holly and Fletcher; I will be watching the last episode with my 3 sisters and my mom, I'm a straight guy but I like GL, started watching when I was in the hospital for 2 wks that's when I got into it. Started watching it in the early '80s god it was so good back then when soaps rlued and GL was number one in the ratings, if you can beleave that. Thank you DC for all the great post that you have given us, hope continue to get updates were the GL actors are going to end up. Thank you GL for the great joy given us. You can see old clips and storylines on youtube; at least see them in there prime.

I've got to get this out: Wheeler has known since April 1st that this show would have it's last episode on September 18th and THIS is how she "ties" things up?

With Josh & Reva apart despite their incredible chemistry, rapport, and history?

With The Rapist & PsychoEddie STILL torturing us with their bizarre homoerotic cat and mouse game on the second-to-last episode EVER?

With Blake stuck with that boring loser Frank? Ugh. I'd honestly rather see her commit suicide so she could be with Ross than have her stuck with that clueless idiot.

With Rick totally alone, as usual? Oh they might tell us he's with Mindy in the flash-forward but by robbing us of the opportunity to actually see them fall in love again, who cares?

With Dinah and Mallet roaming around Europe, alone, and Dinah a fugitive forever?

With Cyrus and Marina trapped in ridiculously rushed, contrived, and shallow relationships with Mel and Shayne, who they have no chemistry with, rather than reuniting?

With Ed & Holly getting a total of three minutes of airtime in the final weeks and getting shoved off in an ending that had no setup and doesn't make sense? We saw them interact with each other for 30 seconds three weeks ago and now they're gonna travel the world together out of the blue? Huh. Are we even gonna get to see Holly say goodbye to Blake?

With Olivia & Natalia "together" but only in the "BFFs who occasionally hold hands and headbutt" sort of way?

A short flicker of Fletcher is nice but why the hell wasn't he here weeks ago? Why did we have to watch four months of front-burner M&M, who aren't even together anymore, rather than real interaction between Ed, Holly, Fletcher, Alex, and Rick?

While I loved Phillip's proposal to Beth and her acceptance, my enthusiasm for it flew right out the window yesterday when Beth didn't offer a single word of comfort to Phillip for losing his father after he risked his life to save him but proceeded to selfishly mourn the man she despised as if he was everything to her. And what exactly was the point of SORASing Peyton just so we could not see Beth tell her anyway?

Marj Dusay was fantastic yesterday and the star of the show hands down but all her performance really did was make me irate at EW for reminding me how awesome Alex is and that she was wasted and ignored for years while we were stuck suffering through Harley, Gus, Jeffrey, Edmund, Daisy, Rafe, and Grady for how long?

Okay watching live. What the f*** is this Jeffrey/Edmund shit doing in the second to last episode?! Seriously, this NYC roof was ugly, give me the lovely Peapack anyday over that, but seriously, unless Ellen Wheeler is in that car Jeffrey's waiting for with a gun, not worth it!
Really liking this episode better than the past two days. So doesn't feel like an episode leading up to a finale though.

Jeffrey and Edmund should just get it over with and have sex on the rooftop it's so obvious they want to bang each others brains out.

Yay for Mel & Cyrus! They are HOT!!!

P.S.
It is pathetic that GL did have Olivia and Natalia kiss.

I'm really curious to see how they end this Jeffery/Edmund storyline and to see if Jeffery makes it back to Reva or she ends up with Josh. It's going to be a sad day tomorrow either way.

Thanks for the live blog, Mel! You always bring it back home to what's important...more of Cyrus on the screen! And I don't mean more screen time. Someone who needs less screen time--Jeffrey. Why isn't this man dead? Having him remain alive has served no purpose. Jon could've come back without Jeffrey's involvement. Enough venting.

I definitely shed more tears today too! Alex had me yesterday and today. Marj Dusay has played it understated, which is nice. Until Fletcher came. I was bursting into tears right along with her. Loved Phillip and James again.

We have needed to overlook some things to make the last couple weeks flow. The "redemption" of Alan's character, the bonding of Marina and Shayne, Henry's purple pants, characters who should've shown up weeks ago, others who should've gone away years ago, but despite it all, I've really enjoyed the last couple weeks. I felt connected with the characters again, and gosh darn it, they have me believing love can save the world. Really looking forward to the live blog again tomorrow!

Aside from the Jeffrey/Richard/Edmund foolishness GL was wonderful today it makes me sad that it took cancellation for so many beloved characters to come back were, were the Bauers all these years? Why did it take so long for Marj to get screentime? Why is Cyrus not got his shirt off all the time?

Also why the heck are we not seeing Natalia and Olivia kiss for heavens sake are they afraid they'll lose viewers? Or is EW letting her religion get in the way?

Why does it seem like Maureen Garrett doesn't age? And why hasn't she been scooped up by another soap? OLTL should bring her on as Dorian's sister Melinda and hook her up with Clint; MG and JVD have always had nice chemistry.

Marj Dusay killed it again today especially when she just finally let go of all of her emotions when Fletch walked in the room. If AMC wasn't being run by illiterate chimps I'd love to see her return to the show as a back from the dead (and no longer insane) Vanessa just to make David's life miserable. And I know it may be sacrilege to some but I think Marj would make a kickass Sally Spectra recast on BB. Either way she needs to be on another show pronto!

I cried my eyes out today. Alex and Philip was the reason for most tears but Reva and Jonathan got to me as well.

I loved seeing Fletcher.

Rick always makes me laugh, nothing like the Bauers.

Do you think that Mallet and Dinah are together somewhere? Will we see them?

Oh one more thing...I remembered why I always loved Reva.

Katiebug,

Ellen Wheeler came up with the idea of Natalia and Olivia becoming lovers. So, don't blame her. I'd look to the network or P&G.

Amen about Robert Newman "is so fine", good to see Fletcher with Alex today (she broke my heart) and Ed and Holly wow.
But I know see my all time favorite couple Josh and Reba is going broke my heart for good. I am going miss them so much, thank you Kim Zimmer and Robert Newman!!!

I echo most of the posts on here. Loved today's show..Loved seeing the Bauer family again ...Michelle & Danny and Robby and Hope (okay they are technically Santos family)...Great seeing Ed and the wonderful beautiful Holly. Seeing Fletcher was awesome...

Now, where was Leah Bauer?
But I digress.....Oh wait, where was Alan-Michael?
Anyway....I would like Ellen Wheeler to take a look at this week's episodes.

Then, I would like her to take a look at the week of shows that aired around this time in September 2007.

Can she see what a mess the show was back then?

Do you think she gets it now? Why did it take cancellation week to write a show that would appeal to many of GL's fans?

Goodbye GL.

I agree with the others the last 2 weeks have been great,even with the break nut speed the story lines are moving so they can tie most of them up. I still can't believe there's only 1 episode left.

Now I'm just praying the final show is not preempted or interrupted with a breaking news story, like we were on Tuesday in my area, thankfully it came back right before Alan died, but the way the show was dissed at the emmys, I would not be surprised.

Lights Out
