GUIDING LIGHT SYNOPSIS OCTOBER 12-16, 2009

Via @MelindaSueLewis

Bill invited family and friends to a surprise party welcoming Lizzie and baby Alana Grace home from the hospital. Billy was so enthusiastic about taking pictures and videos of his new granddaughter that Mindy had to tease him about all of her baby pictures being lost. It's like she didn't exist before the age of two! Her teasing upset Billy more than Mindy expected, and she was forced to apologize.



Jonathan arrived at the party without Sarah and told Lizzie the little girl was still upset about sharing her mom with the new baby and refused to come. Lizzie wanted to know who Sarah was with now, and Jonathan admitted she was with Aubrey, the young woman Jonathan became involved with while on the run with Sarah. Lizzie refused to have Aubrey watch Sarah and demanded that Jonathan bring Lizzie her daughter. Jonathan just shrugged and walked out, infuriating Bill.

Rick tried to convince Leah to stop hiding her intelligence and and sign up for the academically accelerated program her teacher recommended.



Leah fired back with, "Dad, have you looked at how many Black kids that top private school you're sending me to has? Exactly one in each grade. I'm already a minority. You force me into the gifted program, and I'll be a minority within a minority. No way. I'm not doing it. At least Mom gets it. She says I don't have to."

And then Leah told Mindy and Rick, "
I hear you're planning on having a baby. Maybe IT can be your trophy show pony of a genius. At least he or she won't have to go through their whole life in Springfield hearing: But how can YOU be one of THOSE Bauers, you're... "

(Thank you to everyone who let us know there have been some problems with registering for the poll. We are trying to get the issue straightened out right now. The Guide the Light poll will return next week. We appreciate your patience.)

I agree with elvara. I thought that when Guiding Light went off air that it was over not that it would continue on the internet. Seriously, people move on. Do these Actors and Actresses just come in to the studio to shoot these photos or something? I want to see news and rare photos from As The World Turns like you used to post. What happened to that? Why did you all of a sudden become so facinated in Melinda's tweets?

Thanks Trinnie. I thought I was alone in feeling like this. I was a fan of GL and loved AW but they are gone. I don't understand why this blog has done so much focus on soaps that don't exist anymore. ATWT is in trouble, but at least it's still on the air. Why not talk about it?

Trinnie said...

Exactly, I completely agree with you on this Elvara.

Elvara and Trinnie, there are enough GL fans who want the Tweets and blogs to continue, so you'll just have to deal with it. Stop complaining and watch ATWT on CBS. If you watched it, you wouldn't have to come here.

Guiding Light is not dead and it will never die. I'm sorry to disaapoint you about that.

Also...if someone doesn't care about GL and the Tweets, why waste your time here?

Thank you for the GL tweets. I wish the show was still on.

Maybe the P&G people could find the funds to do a GL movie every so often. I miss those characters!!!

I just stumbled upon these tweets/posts. I am enjoying them immensely. If you don't recognize the pictures as shots from the show while it is on the air - you must not have been a big fan anyway.
