CBS SID "HEART TO HEART"
Posted by JaimeGL at the GUSH board
http://gharleyfanboard.yuku.com/topic/4056?page=2

Heart to Heart
As Olivia desperately clings to life this week on GUIDING LIGHT; her unlikely friendship with Gus takes a dramatic turn when he dies in a motorcycle accident... and she gets his heart! As Olivia struggles to accept her fate -- -- and Gus' -- -- his demise shatters Springfield and changes many relationships forever.

Good News, Bad News!
As the week begins, Ava and Jeffery are thrilled to learn that a new heart is on its way -- -- until they see a mangled Gus wheeled into the trauma unit on a gurney. His, they realize then, may be the heart that ultimately saves Olivia's life! Meanwhile, not knowing that her friend is also nearing his end, the fading beauty prepares to die. "Olivia has been admitted to the hospital and is not doing well, but in many ways, she has made peace with the fact that this is what's going to happen to her," explains Crystal Chappell of her character's imminent death. "She asks Reva to take her outside because she doesn't want to die without seeing the sun one more time."

When Olivia returns to the hospital ready to say her good-byes to family and friends, she realizes that maybe she's not ready to depart after all! In fact, her already unstable heart is jolted with pain when she finds out that Gus was in a terrible motorcycle accident and may not make it through the ordeal alive! "Olivia sees that he's badly injured, and he has to go have a serious operation," Chappell explains. "So you have Gus in one room dying from his accident-related injuries, and you have Olivia in an adjacent room dying from her heart condition."

The Ultimate Gift
Though the two critical patients share a tear-jerking conversation that helps give Olivia hope, in the end, Gus dies from a severe head trauma. "Ricky [Paull Goldin, Gus] was a mess, and I was a mess; everyone was a mess!" says Chappell of the scenes. Adds Goldin: "Only in daytime do you get to love each other and be with each other for this amount of time. There's a part of my heart [as an actor] that is broken." Though Gus is gone for good, he will never be forgotten in Springfield, because his heart is passed on to Olivia! "She wakes up with a new heart, but nobody tells her that Gus died!" Chappell explains. "And they're not going to immediately tell her [that she has his heart]" Though she'll surely be grateful that her life was spared, how will Olivia respond when she finally learns the truth: that her friend had to die in order for her to live? "When she finds out, I think she'll feel devastated and that she's not worthy of it," Chappell predicts. "And certainly, she'll feel that if he can't be there with her, she doesn't want to live. Although she will see it as one last generous gift of his, there's no way that she could embrace
it at this point."

The End of Gus & Harley
Of course, since Gus was married twice, Olivia isn't the only woman who is crushed by his passing. While Liv bears the burden of having to keep a part of him to survive, Natalia and Harley reel from the tragic news that they will never see their shared soul mate again. "This opens a lot of stories for my cast members," Goldin admits. "It
leaves all my women at a loose end and a piece of me behind. I'm sure they will all turn it into gold." "It opens up all kinds of possibilities in terms of relationships," adds Chappell. "Natalia and Olivia are going to be connected, and they're going to have to deal with that connection. In the aftermath of the heart transplant, Natalia....is drawn to Olivia because she has the last physical piece of Gus. [There will be] a forced connection, and it will be antagonistic, but at the same time, I think there's going to be a lot that comes out of it that will be surprising." As for the lasting effects on Harley, Chappell says that it all depends on how Buzz' daughter reacts to the news, "Relationships are changing."

Though Goldin hopes to remain close to his GL co-stars, his dramatic exit is also changing their real-life relationships. "When you've been working with someone for months and months, not to mention how he and Beth [Ehlers, Harley] worked together so beautifully for years, it is very emotional," says Chappell. "We're all a mess [over Ricky leaving and the death of Gus], but that, to me, is good soap. I think in some ways, this has been a blessing. Ricky gets to be great, somewhere else unfortunately, and we get a great story."

SOAP OPERA WEEKLY
Posted by JaimeGL at the GUSH board
http://gharleyfanboard.yuku.com/topic/4056?page=1

GUS DIES!

Gus breathes his last this week, leaving Olivia the gift she's been dying for: his heart. "When Olivia sees him wheeled into the emergency room, she's told it's not as bad as it is," sets up Crystal Chappell (Olivia). While Jeffrey encourages Gus to hold on, Ava takes Olivia in to see him. Gus tells Olivia he was speeding to get to her when he had the accident. "He wants to be her hero," explains Chappell, "so she tells him, 'You saved me.' He did, not by getting her a heart, but by being in her life. It's a devastating conversation."

After her emotional visit with Gus, Jeffrey informs Olivia she won't be getting a new heart. "She had already been preparing for it," shrugs Chappell. "She's actually able to have fun for the first time in a long time because she knows everyone is going to be okay." Everyone except Gus. While Olivia prepares to go in peace, Harley and Natalia cling to Gus a few rooms away as he dies. "Ava and Jeffrey downplayed Gus' injuries," admits Chapell, "so Olivia has no idea." Soon Rick (who himself got Richard's heart) approaches Natalia about donating Gus' organs. Natalia reluctantly agrees to give Gus' heart to Olivia. As Olivia drifts off to sleep, Jeffrey learns the heart is available. The transplant is performed immediately. "Only because she wakes up does she got a heart," reveals Chappell. "She's excited, and asks for Gus. Ava tells her that Gus is coming to see her, so she's under the impression that the donor heart is from a stranger."

Everyone continues to hide the heartbreaking news from Olivia, until Reva feels compelled to tell her the shocking truth. "Reva gets very nervous," says Chappell. "Olivia knows something is wrong. She's saying, 'I can't live without him,' and that's when Reva tells her she got the heart of the man she's in love with. It's a [terrible] thought that he should die so that she could live. She feels totally unworthy of it." Ava thanks Natalia for giving Olivia another chance at life, but Olivia's grief continues to take its toll. "She's in denial," sighs Chappell. But hopefully, her heart will go on.

I would have loved somehow to have Harley get Gus's heart instead of Olivia. I know it wouldn't make any sense, but it would have made me happy :)

Soapdom Fresh Peeks


Olivia comes through her heart surgery, but her elation is soon crushed when she finds out the devastating news about whose heart she received. Yup, you know what we’re talking about. Gus does not survive the car crash. His heart now truly does and always will belong to Olivia. At the same time, Harley decides that Gus deserves only the best. She proceeds to plan a huge funeral. Will Natalia and Olivia go along with Harley’s plan? Shortly thereafter, Ava tells Lizzie about Olivia and Gus. How will Ava react? While on the other side of Springfield, Mallet gets some surprising news. Dinah announces that she wants to get back with him. Is this a welcome surprise or a shocker for Mallet? The week winds down as Cyrus vandalizes Vanessa’s room, she catches him red-handed. Will he be able to talk his way out of this one? Tune in to Guiding Light this week and see.

I get pissed at GL and don't always watch, but I guess I will be here to the end. Today was very sad and next week is going to be even sadder. I will miss Gus.

Dinah signs the papers to officially buy the Spaulding Mansion.

I don't see how she could possibly do this. First, she has no money. Remember when she and Mallet couldn't pay her hospital bills? And second, wasn't the mansion protected somehow from seizure by the Spauldings? Surely Alan had some kind of insurance that would prevent an outsider from coming in and ruining him financially and taking the mansion. This story perhaps makes the least sense of all of them. It might have been good if someone who knows how to research and write had actually taken the time to do so.

I agree Mani. Here's some stuff I remember about the Spaulding family/business. Some of it is contradictory since past writers weren't always consistent, and some stuff may be "outdated" by newer "scenarios" from later writers, but ANY info from past history makes this plot inane and impractical.

*The house itself isn't owned by the Spaulding family but is the residence of whomever is CEO of SE.

*The personal property of the family cannot be seized...(trusts, heirlooms, etc.) if the corp. is the target. If Alan's personal taxes are at fault, then nothing but his personal assets can be touched. This was a big deal in a storyline with Roger long ago, I think.

*No single Spaulding owns a majority of the company. Remember the board meeting with all the ex-wives? It takes a coalition of several people to form a majority. Plus there are non-family stockholders and a board of directors. Hence, this can't be about SE, only Alan's personal income.


Therefore, it should be easy for Lizzie/Alex/Beth, etc. to stay in the mansion, take over the company, etc. Alan might go to jail, but no way Dinah emerges in charge...unless these writers are smart enough to backtrack and show Dinah made major behind-the-scenes changes while she was at Spaulding that she can now trigger and manipulate .

Myworld, this is a VERY cool board -- my favorite, in fact, because people here are allowed to speak their piece. Don't be discouraged or too disappointed if many posters don't always agree with your point of view. We're a diverse group. :) Welcome, and hope you enjoy it here.

If I remember right, last week Alan was puttting alot of money in an account for Phillip (Dinah). So I am guessing that is where she is getting the money to buy the mansion. Not that much they write anymore makes any sense.

Trying to comfort Harley, Cyrus feels as if he is being left out of the picture.
Wellll, poor Cyrus. Or NOT!

Why couldn't Gus tell Harley to stop acting like a whore with Cyrus before he died? Or, even better -- to tell Harley that Marina is the one he really loved all these years. LOL.

I didn't see it, but I guess they wanted to give GusH fans a touching moment in fears they would totally offend them.

Too bad offending rape victims doesn't take presidence to large fanbases.
