These pictures are of Shuis in November in front of the fireplace in Sheridan's cottage before Fancy walked in and spoiled the beautiful sexual chemistry that is Sheridan and Luis together! They look so HOT, as they always do and the chemistry just oozes from the duo.

This is a picture of the lyrics to "Imagine" as it was placed in a scrapbook made by Charity and Miguel for Luis after Sheridan was presumed dead and buried in Bermuda. I love the song! It is so very appropriate for Shuis and I am so thrilled that TPTB gave their signature/supercouple a song that was written just for them. The show always proved what a very special couple Sheridan and Luis (SHUIS) really were. http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb281/shuismagic/Pdc4675392516845622773.jpg (http://s207.photobucket.com/albums/bb281/shuismagic/?action=view&current=Pdc4675392516845622773.jpg)

This is the ticket that Luis gave Sheridan for speeding on her way into Harmony and crashing into his police cruiser. This is also from the scrapbook that Charguel made for Luis after Sheridan was presumed dead in Bermuda.

This is another memory from the memory book that Charity and Miguel made for Luis after Sheridan was presumed dead in Bermuda. This is of course of Sheridan and Luis' first real date at the Lobster Shack and what they ate after they had their talk about what to order. LOL!

Thanks, Ann for putting up all of these beautiful pictures and memories!

3.17.08, 1:38 AM
Another memory from the scrapbook that Charity and Miguel made for Luis after Sheridan's "death" is this one of a card that Luis gave Sheridan on New Year's after she came back from being buried alive. Isn't it beautiful and didn't Luis write the sweetest things to Sheridan?
http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb281/shuismagic/19.jpg (http://s207.photobucket.com/albums/bb281/shuismagic/?action=view&current=19.jpg)

Shuis toast to New Year 2001.

After the toast and a few kisses, Shuis snuggle on the couch at Sheridan's cottage to watch the fireworks that Ethan had arranged for Theresa that New Year's Eve.

3.18.08, 1:15 AM
Another memory that comes from the memory book that Charity and Miguel made for Luis is this recipe for scrambled eggs from Sheridan. Luis said that scrambled eggs were an accident. LOL!
http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb281/shuismagic/4_a.jpg (http://s207.photobucket.com/albums/bb281/shuismagic/?action=view&current=4_a.jpg)
The night before Luis ended up sleeping on Sheridan's couch was the first time that Sheridan tried to cook scrambled eggs for Luis. This is such a touching picture of Sheridan running her fingers over Luis' hair as he slept after being overcome by exhaustion.

3.18.08, 5:43 PM
Thanks, Ann! I loved those scenes!

3.19.08, 12:11 AM
Here is another memory from the book that Charguel made for Luis after Sheridan "died" in Bermuda. Here is the recipe for Eggs Benedict that Luis attempted to make for Sheridan after the mine shaft incident. Luis didn't follow his recipe, did he? LOL!
http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb281/shuismagic/4_b.jpg (http://s207.photobucket.com/albums/bb281/shuismagic/?action=view&current=4_b.jpg) Luis in the kitchen attempting to make the Eggs Benedict to impress Sheridan because he was so "crazy about her!"

Shuis have a heart to heart talk...

3.20.08, 1:20 AM
Once again I am borrowing from the memories that Charguel compiled for Luis after Sheridan's "death" in the boat explosion in Bermuda. This is the invitation to the engagement party thrown for Shuis by Al, Julian and Rebecca. Of course, we know that they did that to break up Shuis but Sheridan was so thrilled to think that her father and brother really loved and cared about her.
http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb281/shuismagic/Pdc4675392515471928386.jpg (http://s207.photobucket.com/albums/bb281/shuismagic/?action=view&current=Pdc4675392515471928386.jpg)
Here are several screen caps of Sheridan and Luis enjoying their engagement party.
Shuis toasting...

3.21.08, 12:15 AM
Another memory from the book of Shuis memories that Charguel made for Luis after Sheridan's "death" in Bermuda. The vows that Sheridan wrote and recited to Luis were so touching. They brought tears to my eyes!
http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb281/shuismagic/Pdc4675392516851290539.jpg (http://s207.photobucket.com/albums/bb281/shuismagic/?action=view&current=Pdc4675392516851290539.jpg) Sheridan reciting her vows to Luis...

I loved those wedding scenes, especially the beautiful vows.

3.21.08, 9:47 AM
Thanks, Ann. Such beautiful scenes. Shuis is the best thing that happened on Passions! What a shame JERk was such a jerk!

3.22.08, 1:34 AM
The Vows Luis Wrote to Sheridan

You are my life.
You are my whole reason for being.
From this moment on you'll never be alone, you'll never be unhappy, or afraid.
You will always know how deeply I love you, how deeply you are loved, and mo matter what, I'll always be here.
We've both suffered painful losses: you lost your mother, I lost my father.
Together, we will build a family of our own, a family of love and support.
We will be together Sheridan, till death do us part.
If you were to die, then I would die too.
I couldn't live my life without you, I wouldn't be able to go on.

3.23.08, 1:43 AM
This is a cute picture that I recently found of Galen and McKenzie when posing for publicity shots. This must have been sometime during the time Sheridan was stuck on the island with Brian because Galen's hair is so long there. We all know that he cut it after his encounter with Liz and just missing Sheridan on the island when he went back to get Beth's boat. McKenzie is just radiant in this picture, absolutely stunning!

This is another picture from the same photo shoot.

3.24.08, 12:12 AM
I love this picture of McKenzie and Galen laughing and having a great time during this photo shoot! What a beautiful couple with the best chemistry in daytime!

3.24.08, 11:16 PM
Thanks, Ann!

3.25.08, 12:46 AM
This is a magazine article from SOD in 2002 that highlighted some of the "Firsts" on the show. http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb281/shuismagic/Media50.jpg (http://s207.photobucket.com/albums/bb281/shuismagic/?action=view&current=Media50.jpg)

3.26.08, 1:16 AM
This is one of the many soap magazine articles that Galen and McKenzie have appeared in together and separately. This is an interview done just around the time Sheridan returned to Harmony after having amnesia in St. Lisa's. Gorgeous picture of "Soaps Hottest Duo's" and very cute answers...

Sorry this scan is so blurry. I found this a long time ago posted on the net so I didn't scan it, although mine not have been much better. LOL!

3.26.08, 11:31 PM
Thanks, Ann!

3.27.08, 1:32 AM
I wonder if the former character returning for a brief appearance will be one of these Shuis obstacles? LOL! Neither one was a real match for the love of Shuis!

3.29.08, 1:32 AM
This is another of the memories that Charity and Miguel chose for the memory book that they made for Luis after Sheridan was blown up on the boat in Bermuda. This one is a beautiful letter that Sheridan wrote to Luis on their wedding day while waiting to meet him at the altar.

Thanks, Ann!

3.30.08, 12:09 AM
s actually the latest picture that NBC posted of the cast of Passions. There are so many of the actors who are no longer with the show but amazingly 10 original cast members who are still with the show. I think it is wonderful that Galen, McKenzie, Ben, Tracey, Lindsay, Eva, Juliet, James and Kim stayed for all 9 years of the show, and to Liza who was an original cast member who left for 2 years but returned to the role that she originated. I would hope that SOW or SOD would interview these 10 original cast members and ask for some of their special memories over the past 9 years. Here's to the wonderful cast of Passions on entertaining and bring us such wonderful memories of our favorite characters! I will miss you all!

3.30.08, 8:02 PM
Thanks, Ann. What a great cast!

3.30.08, 10:46 PM
I found two more versions of the last cast photo that I posted last night. These are rather blurry but you can tell they are each slightly different.

Thank you, Cast of Passions, for entertaining us so wonderfully over the past 9 years!

Thanks to Passions Talk for the pictures.

I love this picture of Galen and McKenzie as Shuis on an early magazine cover or two. They are just beautiful together!

Isn't this a cute picture of Jesse Metcalf, McKenzie, and Galen rehearsing at a skating rink for the upcoming ice skating scenes for Valentine's Day 2000? They sure do look comfortable with each other. It was cute how someone put them in the flim strip. Thanks to Jen's Passions Page for the clip.

Another beautiful banner made by srhrobin. This one is of sexy Shuis in the hot tub in Bermuda! Gorgeous! I can certainly "feel the magic" any time they are in a scene together.

I am sorry that I missed posting our Shuis pic of the day the last couple of nights. Thursday we had bad thunderstorms and cable was out when I came home for work. Last night I didn't get home from work until after 11pm, then had to be back earlier than usual this morning so I fell asleep almost right away watching the news! LOL!

4.9.08, 2:30 AM
I love the description of the beautiful McKenzie that this magazine used for her gown worn at the Hollywood Christmas gala in the show's early years...probably in 2000. They called McKenzie the epitome of the word goddess. Love it!

Thanks, Ann. Great pictures!

4.11.08, 1:18 AM
This is a beautiful picture of our favorite couple at one of Al's quickly called parties...I believe it was the one where Liz poisoned the cigar and his brandy. On second thought, Luis wasn't there for that one.

Thanks, Ann. It's hard to believe JER would destroy such a beautiful couple!

4.14.08, 1:44 AM
Here are several pictures of Galen and McKenzie at one of the Daytime Emmy awards. McKenzie was a presenter but Galen was not going to be able to attend but showed up at the last minute by himself. Carolyn Hinsey from SOD escorted him into the theater. LOL!
McKenzie was very stylish in her peacock feathers for the soap from the peacock network!

Thanks, Ann. What great photos!

4.16.08, 11:53 PM
Thanks to Alexisfan on the NBC board for posting these pictures of the memory collages by year that were sent to the Passions Fan Club members as a farewell surprise.
In 1999 we see the cast photo, Sheridan in Paris, Luis with Sam, Shuis with Hank, Shuis arguing at the Youth Center about Sheridan's interest in finding Luis' dad just before they go on the New Mexico adventure, and Sheridan's dreams of her "mystery man" who saves her which turned out to be Luis.
http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb281/shuismagic/pass1999.jpg (http://s207.photobucket.com/albums/bb281/shuismagic/?action=view&current=pass1999.jpg)
The 2000 poster shows Luis on the boat rescuing Ethan and Theresa after the prom boat disaster, as well as Sheridan in her coffin as Luis mourns at the church before she is buried alive.
http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb281/shuismagic/pass2000.jpg (http://s207.photobucket.com/albums/bb281/shuismagic/?action=view&current=pass2000.jpg)
2001 brought Luis and the guys fighting the forces of evil with he11 in the closet (when Hank returned after having grown 2 feet!), the beautiful Shuis/ET double wedding, and the memorable Shuis Titanic past life.
http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb281/shuismagic/pass2001.jpg (http://s207.photobucket.com/albums/bb281/shuismagic/?action=view&current=pass2001.jpg)
On the 2002 poster we find pictures of Shuis in Ancient Egypt in another of their past lives, Sheridan and Luis in Bermuda at a masked ball where they didn't recognize each other (preposterous!), and Shuis in another double wedding but this time it was Sheridan marrying a dying Antonio and Luis with Beth. Poor Shuis!

In 2003 a pregnant Sheridan had an Alice in Wonderland adventure while being held captive in the pit in Beth's basement until her baby was born. This same poster has a picture of Shuis meeting thier "dead" parents Katherine and Martin (Kmart) in Mexico. (They are obviously off a bit on the timeline here but what's new!)

Continuing with the fan club collages, in 2004 Luis and Sheridan share an adventure in one of their past lives with the Pirate storyline, my favorite of the past lives. Then they have the most beautiful and most memorable Commitment ceremony while in Mexico where they went to bring Paloma home to a very ill Pilar.

On the 2005 poster, we have Galen and the guys at the Passions disaster premiere, Precious daydreaming of Luis in a detective show on TV, and a picture of Shuis chasing Beth to rescue a kidnapped Marty.

2006 has a great picture of the lovely ladies of Passions at the Daytime Emmys, a cute picture of Luis with his mother and sister, and Luis after he was found alive in Hawaii. Sheridan is sitting by his bedside and they are so happy to be together in that hospital room.

On the 2007 poster, we see Shuis working together to find their son who they believe Alistair is hiding and best of all Shuis get Marty back as the Christmas miracle of 2007. Sheridan, Luis and Marty are so happy to be together!

Even though only 3 months had aired on Passions by the time the collages went out in the mail, they have picures of Luis and Pilar looking sadly at Theresa's picture as they mourn her "death", Sheridan being chased by a remote controlled Fancy, and Sheridan as she argues with Pretty on the wharf where she puts a stop to Pretty's plan to kill Fancy by throwing the remote control into the water.

For the next few nights I am going to repost the last 3 Shuis summaries before I left off when I became too busy with my second job but now that tax season is over, I will pick up where I left off...after these reposts...

Luis carries Sheridan into the bedroom to make love again. This leads to a very sexy, sensual scene of Luis kissing Sheridan’s neck and shoulders from behind as they kneel on the bed……beautifully done!

Shuis are basking in the afterglow when Sheridan looks up at Luis and says that he is not thinking of her. He says that he is always thinking of her. She knows otherwise. He says that she is right. He can’t help but be worried about Theresa because she can be so impulsive. No sooner has Luis finished talking about Theresa’s impulsiveness when Ethan and Theresa walk through the front door of Sheridan’s cottage. Ethan calls out to Sheridan that they have some important news to tell them.

Ethan and Theresa have told Shuis about Theresa giving Ethan her savings. Ethan wants to do something great for Theresa and asks what that could be. Theresa tells him that she wants to get married right away. Luis says, “NO”. Ethan and Theresa ask if Luis is against their relationship now. Luis says that he is not against them getting married but that they should wait until Ethan is established financially. They have no money. Theresa says that they love each other but Luis says that they cannot live on love. Luis tells Theresa that he wants better for her. He wants her to have a foundation, home, and a man who can look after her. Theresa reminds Luis that Ethan is an attorney and will easily get a job. Luis thinks that the Cranes might blackball Ethan. Luis asks Ethan and Theresa just to wait until Ethan has a job and money. Ethan doesn’t even have a last name to give Theresa. Sheridan says that she is more concerned with Ethan’s emotional stability and she knows that Theresa will give Ethan emotional stability. Sheridan says that money doesn’t matter. Luis turns to Sheridan and says, “Sheridan, I love you but you have no idea what it is like to scrimp and save. It can really put a strain on a marriage.

Ethan and Theresa decide to run tell Ivy that they are getting married as soon as they can. Sheridan sees ET to the door. As she walks down the stairs, Sheridan says that Ethan and Theresa are so deeply in love. She says, “Isn’t it just wondef…..” as she sees Luis’ face. He doesn’t look happy at all. Sheridan asks if he is mad with her for supporting ET getting married. Luis says, “Let’s go for a walk” and he hands Sheridan her coat. She looks down at the coat and says, “This can’t be good” as she follows Luis out the door.

As they walk, Sheridan tries defending her supporting ET. She keeps talking, even when Luis tries to cut in. He grabs Sheridan and kisses her…a very passionate kiss that leaves Sheridan wanting to know what that was for. Luis says that was to tell her that he will always love her. Even though there will be times that they may disagree, he would always love her and at the end of the day they can agree that they still love each other more than anything else in the world. Luis says that is all he wants for his sister. Sheridan says that is what she wants for her nephew, too... Until she remembers that Ethan is not her nephew. Luis thinks that Ethan is better off not being a Crane because the Cranes will not will not be trying to break up ET. Sheridan is worried now as she tells Luis that she is still a Crane. She is worried that her brother and father will try to split them up but Luis says that they can try but their love (Sheridan and Luis) is just too strong for that to happen.

To be continued………..

I didn't find a picture from the time of the summary but I found this one at passionstalk.net and thought it was cute. It shows how much fun Galen and McKenzie have during their photo shoots.

4.20.08, 12:06 AM
This is the second of 3 reposts to get us back to the new summaries...

Alistair calls Julian to ask how he intends to break up Luis and Sheridan. Julian doesn’t have a plan and wants to know why Alistair doesn’t just play Sheridan’s confession tape for Luis. Alistair doesn’t want any more bad publicity. He thinks the Crane Empire could crumble if more bad news was leaked to the press. Alistair doesn’t want Luis digging around and finding out any Crane secrets.

While Sheridan is reading a book, Luis calls the station to check on the search for Charity. He learns that Father Lonigan has called off the search because Charity is no longer missing. Luis doesn’t understand how that can be because neither Miguel nor his mother has called him with any news. Sheridan remembers that Father Lonigan said that evil had come to Harmony. Sheridan thinks that he may be right due to all of the bad things that have happened in the past day or two. Luis assures her that evil has not come to Harmony. He believes that all of the bad things that have happened recently are due to people having secrets and making bad choices. Ivy and Sam both made bad choices which ultimately caused Grace to lose her baby. Charity has been known to sleep walk. Luis and Sheridan are glad that they have no secrets that could come between them. Sheridan said the only one they could have had was cleared up when Eve hypnotized her and helped her to over come the fear that she had something to do with Luis’ father’s disappearance. Luis is reminded of his father’s disappearance and he vows once again to prove that Julian and Alistair caused his disappearance. Sheridan doesn’t believe they are capable of doing anything like that but Luis is convinced that they are. Luis wishes that there was someone who could tell them the truth. Sheridan smiles as she turns to Luis and tells him that she knows someone who can tell them the truth. She thinks that her mother may have known something. She may have written some information in her diaries. She tells Luis that her mother left her the diaries in her will but Sheridan has not had a chance to read them. Sheridan decides to ask Julian where the diaries can be found. She wants so badly to help Luis find his father. They leave the gazebo in search of Julian.

To be continued………..

Here are a few more behind the scenes pics of Galen and Kenzie during that same NBC photo shoot...

Another repost of the summaries (I think I said that there were 3 but there will be 4, one more tomorrow, before the new summaries begin again.)

Sheridan and Luis find Julian in the solarium where he has been practicing his golf swing while being fussed at by Alistair. LOL! Sheridan asks Julian where she might find her mother’s diaries. Julian says that he doesn’t know but that he will ask about them. Sheridan tells him not to bother; she will just call the Crane attorneys and find out for herself. Julian says not to bother because he has to call the legal people and will ask for her. Sheridan wants to do that herself. Sheridan suddenly remembers the Crane Archives and tells Luis that they should head over there. Julian forbids Sheridan to go to the vault and lets her know that she couldn’t get in there anyway because she doesn’t have access. He and Alistair are the only ones with access now. Sheridan says that she is a Crane, too, and should be allowed in the vault. Julian makes up some excuse about it being unsafe for her to go there. Sheridan doesn’t like that but when Luis tries to go against Julian, Sheridan tells him that it won’t help anything and they leave. Alistair once again tells Julian that he has messed things up. He says that Julian made them more suspicious than they were before. He tells Julian that if Sheridan found those diaries she would know the truth about Martin Fitzgerald. He pounds his fist on the desk!

Ethan, Theresa, Chad, and Whitney return to the Book Café and are talking about Ethan having been to the Crane building for the last time. Ethan thanks Chad for helping him clear out his office. Sheridan and Luis arrive at the Book Café and talk to ET. Theresa leaves to buy a muffin from Beth. After a few minutes of talking, Luis joins her. Luis and Theresa both enter a contest to win a trip to the islands. When Luis leaves the table, it gives Sheridan the chance to talk to Ethan about her mother’s diaries and how she wishes she could get into the Crane archives. Ethan says that he wishes he could help her but he threw away his access card earlier when he cleaned out his office. Sheridan is disappointed. Ethan tells her that he is not sure that he would have let her use the card even if he had it because she would be putting herself in danger. Sheridan wants to know why. She loves Luis and wants to help him. She says it would be worth being disowned by her family if it meant helping Luis. She loves him and would do anything for him just like she knows that Ethan would want to help Theresa.
Sheridan and Luis move to their own table to talk while Ethan and Theresa are left to talk. Theresa tells Ethan about entering the contest to try to win them a honeymoon trip. Ethan says that it would be perfect but he doesn’t look very happy so Theresa asks him if something happened with Sheridan. He tells her about Shuis wanting to get into the Crane archives to look for clues to her father’s disappearance. Theresa tells Ethan that she picked up the card in case he wanted it later on. Now she says that she has what Shuis need and asks Ethan if he wants her to tell Sheridan that she has the card.

4.21.08, 11:54 PM
This is the last of the reposts. Tomorrow we begin the summaries where this one leaves off (I hope...LOL! Well, hopefully, nothing will happen and I will see you all tomorrow night!)

Theresa says that she has what Shuis need and asks Ethan if he wants her to tell Sheridan that she has the card. Ethan takes the card from Theresa but says that he doesn’t think he should give the card to Sheridan. He doesn’t want her to get hurt or disowned like he was. Sheridan and Luis decide to leave. As they pass Ethan and Theresa, Sheridan spots the card and is amazed that Ethan still has the card. Ethan tells her that he just now got it back. He says that Theresa actually retrieved it for him as a memento. Sheridan hugs Theresa and tells Ethan that he is marrying one smart woman. Sheridan’s says that now she and Luis can go to the archives and find her mother’s diaries but they have to be careful not to let Julian or Alistair know about this. Julian walks up and demands to know what it is that he shouldn’t know about. Sheridan finally tells him that she was going to lend Ethan some money and she didn’t want him and Al to know about it because she knew that they would not like it. Julian says that she is right and she shouldn’t be hanging around with the locals. Sheridan tells Julian that he doesn’t have to worry about it because Ethan turned her offer down.

Julian walks off and Sheridan asks Ethan for the card. Ethan says that he won’t give it to her. She begs him but he doesn’t want her to be punished. He thinks that she doesn’t realize what she is risking by going to the archives when Al and Julian have forbidden her to go there. He doesn’t want her to lose her family. Sheridan says that she knows the risks and Luis is worth it. Besides, she wants to find out the truth not only for Luis but for herself, too. Luis says that Ethan is right and he doesn’t want her to risk losing her family or anything else. He will find another way to find information on his father. Finally, Sheridan convinces Ethan and Luis that she is determined to do this. Ethan gives her the security card but tells her that she shouldn’t use it. Sheridan is so excited that she hugs and thanks Ethan and she and Luis quickly head to Crane Industries to find the clues to Martin’s disappearance.

To be continued………..

This is what goes on behind the scenes at the photo shoots...McKenzie in hair and make-up, as well as Galen being touched up for the shoot. LOL!

4.23.08, 12:54 AM
At Crane Industries, Julian talks with Alistair as he takes the elevator to the floor that houses the Crane Archives. Al warns him that he has to stop Sheridan from finding her mother's diaries. Sheridan and Luis are slowly making their way down the hall to the Crane Archives. Luis says the coast is clear, Sheridan sees the door to the Archives and kisses Luis for luck. She hopes Ethan's security card still works. Sheridan pulls out the card and just as she is about to swipe the card, two security guards grab them from behind and force them against the opposite wall. Luis tells them to take their hands off him. One of the guards tells the other to call Mr. Crane and let him know that they have visitors.

Just as Julian is about to walk off the elevator, he is stopped by an employee with a question. Sheridan turns to face the guards and tells them that she is sure they are the ones who will be sorry when she tells her father and brother how she was treated by them. They apologize to Miss Crane. She tells them that she is just showing her friend around the building and wants some privacy. They understand but ask is she will be reporting them to Julian. She acts like she might but then tells them that she doesn't think that there is any need for that. When the guards turn the corner, Sheridan breathes a sigh of relief but Luis looking past her says they are not in the clear yet. She looks to see what Luis is talking about and sees Julian getting off the elevator.

Sheridan and Luis quickly hide around the corner as Julian heads their way. Sheridan realizes that she has dropped the security card in front of the door. They both hold their breath as they wait to be discovered, but upon opening his wallet, Julian discovers that he has forgotten his security card in his office so he leaves to get it. Sheridan and Luis come from their hiding place. Sheridan picks up the card and goes to the door. She says that she is so nervous and can't believe that she was born a Crane but still doesn't feel like she belongs there. Luis says it is because of Alistair's rules about men only in the Crane family matters. Luis asks if she wants him to do the honors since her hands are shaking so badly. She tells him that it is time she broke some rules. She slides the card through the slot but nothing happens. Sheridan looks incredulous and says, "It doesn't work!" She tries once again. Her hands are still shaking horribly. She tells Luis that she is so sorry for getting his hopes up but they must have already changed the code. Luis takes the card from Sheridan and with a steady hand swipes it one more time. All of a sudden, "ACCESS GRANTED" and "Ethan Crane" appear on the screen as the door slides open. Luis steps through the door followed by Sheridan. She activates the door closing once they are both inside. They both look wonderously at their surroundings.

"Tax returns from the 1960's! How are we ever going to find my mother's diaries in all of this?", Sheridan asks. Luis turns from searching another of the many file cabinets and tells her that they will do it by searching one file cabinet at a time. There are two of them and together they can do anything! Sheridan smiles, touches Luis' face, and says that when he says it like that she almost believes him. Awww... They turn back to searching another drawer but look up as they hear the door. Julian has returned with his card and as the door slides open, he looks to where Shuis were just standing as says, "What the he!!!" in a very surprised voice!

To be continued...

I don't have a picture that goes along with this episode so I will just post one of my favorites of them from a photo shoot (the same shoot that produced their first magazine cover...just a slightly different pose) early in the show's history...

This picture belongs with last night's summary but I didn't find it in my hundreds of screen caps till just now. Here Shuis are hiding around the corner in the hall so that they will not be discovered by Julian.
http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b369/dolphin711/vault1.jpg (http://s23.photobucket.com/albums/b369/dolphin711/?action=view&current=vault1.jpg)
Julian can’t believe what he is seeing! Sheridan and Luis are crouched on the floor behind a bank of file cabinets and holding their breath. Julian says that this is outrageous. Some files that Sheridan and Luis left on the table were not there the last time Julian was in the archives. He says that only three people have access to the Crane Archives……Alistair, himself and Ethan…..he thinks that Ethan must have been there earlier. Still crouching behind the file cabinets, Sheridan tells Luis that if Julian catches them they will go to jail for trespassing.
http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b369/dolphin711/vault2.jpg (http://s23.photobucket.com/albums/b369/dolphin711/?action=view&current=vault2.jpg)
Luis assures her that Julian will not catch them. He says they just have to lay low and when Julian leaves they will make their get away. Sheridan thinks this is sexy and asks Luis if cop talk is sexy or is it just him? (I think it is just him!) Luis takes her arm, they smile at each other, and lean in for a kiss until they are interrupted by a noise from Julian. They were just so cute!!!

Julian moves from his spot at the table and nears the cabinet that hides Shuis. Luis leads Sheridan to the other side of the cabinet and out of Julian’s sight. At the hospital, Ethan is worried about Sheridan so he decides to call to see if she is all right. The camera zooms in on Sheridan’s cell phone peeking out of her purse on the floor near Julian’s feet. The phone could ring at any time giving away their location. Thankfully, Theresa tells Ethan that the nurse is there to give them their blood tests. He hangs up the phone and goes with Theresa saying that he can call Sheridan later.
As Julian is engrossed in reading one of the files that Shuis has left out, a security guard comes to the door and calls to Julian startling him. The guard says that he is checking to see who is in the archives. Julian asks if Ethan has been there today. The guard says that he has but left a while ago. Julian gives the guard orders not to allow Ethan to enter the building again. Sheridan and Luis keep moving around the bank of file cabinets to keep Julian from seeing them. Shuis stay in hiding as they wait for Julian to leave the vault. As Julian heads out the door with the security guard, Sheridan begins to stand but bumps into the cabinet making a noise. Shuis look at each other when Julian asks the guard if he heard that noise. The guard says that he didn’t hear anything. Shuis look at each other with a huge sigh of relief when Julian leaves. Julian closes the door behind him.

Sheridan wants to leave the vault but Luis assures her that they are safe. Sheridan looks around wide-eyed and frightened. Luis asks what is wrong and she reminds him that she is claustrophobic. He says that everything is fine because there is enough room in the vault to play a basketball game. Sheridan continues to look worried even as Luis puts his arms around her and pulls her to him.
Al orders Julian to deactivate Ethan’s security card immediately. Sheridan looks around once again as Luis soothingly rubs her back and tries to assure her that they are all right.

Julian tells Alistair that the vacuuming process will begin momentarily to preserve the valuable paintings housed in the vault. Luis talks Sheridan into staying to continue the search. They begin to search the file cabinets once again. Julian tells Al that Ethan’s card has been deactivated. As Sheridan and Luis continue to search for Katherine’s diaries, the gage on the wall in the vault shows that the oxygen level is beginning to decrease.

4.25.08, 12:32 AM
Now at the hospital to talk with Eve, Julian is once again talking to Alistair on the phone. Al asks Julian if he has seen Sheridan and Luis recently. Julian has not. Al says it makes him nervous that they don’t know where Shuis are.

In the vault, Luis asks Sheridan if she has seen anything of her mother’s diaries. She hasn’t and doesn’t know when they will find them but thinks that they should get out of the vault now that Julian has left. She turns to the door but Luis catches her arm and asks why she is in a hurry. He still wants to search for the diaries. Sheridan is worried that Ethan could be in serious trouble with Julian and Al over his security card. Luis tells her to relax and that no one knows that they are in the archives. He tells Sheridan that her mother wanted her to have the diaries since she willed them to her. They are just trying to find what is rightfully hers. He says that they will also contain some clue to what happened to his father. Sheridan says that he is right. They should stay until they find the diaries. Luis reaches down and gives Sheridan a kiss. He asks Sheridan if she remembers that she said that she felt safe when she was with him. She says that of course she does. Luis says that is because she is and he would never let anything happen to her. He looks around and suggests that they keep searching because they “have all the time in the world.”. On Luis last words, the camera pans to the oxygen gauge which shows the level slowly dropping.

Luis, on a ladder searching some of the higher cabinets, asks Sheridan, now seated at a round table searching through folders, to tell him again what her mother’s diaries look like. Without looking up from her task, Sheridan tells Luis that they are dark green leather books with red ribbon to mark the pages. I remember seeing her writing in them when I was a little girl. Luis descends the ladder and stands over Sheridan with a book in his hand and says, “Like this?”. Sheridan looks up and says, “Oh, Luis! That is it!”. She happily jumps up and hugs Luis tightly around the neck. They are both laughing and hugging and so happy! Sheridan thanks Luis. As Sheridan begins looking through the book, she says that this is one of them which mean that the others must be there, too. Luis says that he hopes that there are some clues about his father in there. Sheridan hopes so, too. He wants Sheridan to know that even though Al and Julian are her father and brother, he will make them pay if he finds that they had something to do with his father’s disappearance. He looks very intense when he says, “an eye for an eye…..that is what the Bible says and THAT is what I want.”

As Sheridan stands looking down at the pages of the diary she murmurs, “Oh Mother!” She returns to her seat at the table as Luis asks if she is all right. Sheridan is sniffling now and says that she feels like a voyeur reading her mother’s most intimate thoughts. Luis reminds Sheridan that her mother willed the diaries to her so she must have wanted Sheridan to read them. There must be some reason that Julian didn’t want her to see them. With tears in her eyes Sheridan reads a passage to Luis. Katherine wrote, “Even with all the pain that Alistair has caused me, it is worth it because of the light in my soul…… my Sheridan, such a loving little girl. I pray that Alistair doesn’t do anything to harden her heart. I pray that she always remains the open radiant girl that I see right now.” Luis has been kneeling beside Sheridan and touching her back for support. He now smiles and tells her that her mother’s prayers were answered. Luis moves his arm to hug Sheridan’s shoulder lean in for a kiss. He smiles that gorgeous smile for Sheridan and she returns her sweet smile as she looks into his handsome face.

Sheridan is still sitting at the table engrossed in reading her mother’s diary when Luis comes from around one of the filing cabinets and announces that he has found 3 more of the diaries. Sheridan said that the lawyer said there were four of them. Luis says that in that case they must have them all. He says that they should get out of there now since they have all of the diaries and she can read them at home. He adds that it is getting stuffy in the vault. Sheridan agrees (they still have their coats on and Luis even has his gloves on. LOL!) and walks toward the door. She swipes the card. She tells Luis that the card isn’t working. Luis says that it didn’t work for her on the way in either. He takes the card from her hand as Sheridan says, “That’s right, you have the magic touch, don’t you?” He laughs and in a very cocky way says, “You know I do!” He scans the card but the monitor says that access is denied. Sheridan says that they must have deactivated Ethan’s card. They are locked in! Sheridan and Luis face each other with wide eyes!

Sheridan panics and is banging on the door for help. Luis tells her that the door is soundproof so no one will hear her. He will call for help on his cell phone. Sheridan tells him that he can’t because the vault is lead-lined, waterproof and state of the art. Not even a nuclear bomb can penetrate it. She remembers now that not only is it waterproof but also air tight, too. Luis says that surely some air can get in but she assures him that it cannot as she points to the gauge on the wall that shows how much (or how little) oxygen they have in the vault. She says that they are going to suffocate!
Shuis have finally taken their coats off. Luis is checking the door and the gauge with the oxygen pump. Sheridan is hyperventilating until Luis helps her to calm down. He tells her that he will find a way out but she will have to remain calm. She says that she will try. Luis takes her into his arms to comfort her. They both look frightened.

Sheridan and Luis are holding each other, Sheridan with her head on Luis’ shoulder, while sitting on the floor in front of one of the cabinets. Luis hears a noise and asks Sheridan if she hears it and wonders what it could be. Sheridan raises her head to listen and tells him that it is the air pump. Luis says that is good. They will be all right now because they will have some fresh air pumped in. He laughs weakly. Sheridan says no they won’t. The pump is sucking the air out. The art works and old documents are preserved by forming a vacuum in the archives. In a little while they won’t have any air left. She says that they are going to die in there. Even Luis looks worried now.

4.26.08, 1:52 AM
Looking at the oxygen gauge, Sheridan tells Luis that they are running out of air. Luis tells her to calm down. She says that they are not going to make it but he says that they are. Luis says that they just have to think and wants to go over things one more time. He reminds her that she said that the air pump that came on sucks the oxygen out of there. She tells him that her father keeps the place air tight to protect his art and documents. Luis wants to know if she knows how to turn the pump off. She doesn’t know about anything there or how it works. Luis thinks that there has to be a way to shut it off. Luis goes to look at the gauge again. Sheridan says that they are running out of time. Luis still thinks that there has to be some way out. Sheridan says that there isn’t. The vault is electronically sealed and the only way out is with the security card. Luis reminds her that the card is not working now. Sheridan once again says that the air will be gone in a matter of minutes, they are trapped, and they will die in there. Luis walks to the other side of the vault. He says emphatically that there has to be a way out of the vault. Sheridan starts to hyperventilate again and Luis rushes to her side. She has panicked again and tells Luis that she feels so light headed and can’t breathe. Luis says that she has to stay calm and conserve oxygen. He will come up with something. She now thinks that they were wrong to used Ethan’s card. She was just so desperate to help Luis find out anything about his father that she just wasn’t thinking about what could happen. Luis tries to calm her but Sheridan says that they found the diaries but they won’t do them any good if they will never get to read them. Luis says again that there has to be a way out. He walks around once again, turns back to Sheridan, and says, “That’s it!” Sheridan asks. “ What?” Luis tells her that he has just figured a way out of there but they have to act fast. Luis walks around the vault while Sheridan leans against a cabinet for support. Luis tells her that they have to find the power source and cut it off to stop the pump. They both begin to search for the power supply. Sheridan calls for Luis when she has found a box on the wall that looks like a circuit breaker box. She can’t get it open. Luis thinks that she has found it and tells her to find something to help pry the door open. Luis opens the box and looks at the many wires. He just has to figure which one to pull to stop the pump. Sheridan looks back at the oxygen gauge and tells Luis that they need to hurry. Luis looks at the wires, trying to decide which ones to pull as Sheridan tells him to be careful. Luis finally tells Sheridan to stand back and he pulls two wires apart, holding one in each hand. A jolt of electric current runs through Luis’ body electrocuting him. Sheridan screams his name! As the current passes through his body, he shakes and is finally thrown away from the wires to the floor. Luis is not breathing and appears to be dead. Luis is once again standing in front of the wires in the box. He is looking at the wires that he pulled apart and exclaiming, “What a jolt! When that current went right through my body I thought I was a goner for sure. The old man had the thing booby trapped.” He looks over at Sheridan sitting on the floor and tells her that they are all right for now because he has stopped the pump. When she doesn’t look up, he sees that she is crying and asks her what is wrong. She doesn’t need to cry now because they will be all right now that he was able to shut off the pump. He asks her to tell him what is wrong. Sheridan is cradling “him” in her lap. He says in a questioning voice, “It’s me!” Luis can’t believe that he could be the one on the floor with Sheridan even though he can see himself there. Sheridan cries that she can’t lose him and that he can’t be dead. Luis tells her that he is not dead. He is right here. He tries to touch Sheridan’s back but his hand goes right through her. In disbelief he says, “Oh God, no. That is me. I am dead!” Sheridan continues to cry over Luis’ body. She asks how this could have happened. Luis tells her not to cry. Sheridan says, “I just found you, Luis. What am I going to do without you?” Luis says so very quietly, “I love you.” Sheridan says, “Just when I find a perfect love…..I can’t lose you. I need you.” Luis tries again to touch Sheridan but his hand slips right through her. Sheridan cries out, “You are the love of my life.” Luis tells Sheridan that he won’t leave her. No, never. He tells her that he will always be here with her. Sheridan pleads with Luis not to leave her. Luis says again that he won’t leave her. Luis is being pulled upwards into the light. He shouts, “No, I’m not going. I won’t leave Sheridan!” The white lights surround him as he is suspended above Sheridan the Luis that she cradles in her arms. To be continued………. I wasn't able to find a picture to go along with this episode so I am reposting the one from yesterday so we all remember what Shuis looked like in that vault. http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b369/dolphin711/vault3.jpg

4.26.08, 11:39 PM
Sheridan still cradles an unconscious Luis in her arms as she cries and talks to Luis telling him that he can’t be dead. She wonders why she let him come to the vault and why didn’t she stop him for disconnecting those wires. She cries, “Luis, I can’t live without you. Let me die with you.” Luis tries to get her attention as he floats near the ceiling by calling her name. She doesn’t look up at him and he wonders why she isn’t answering him. Then he says, “I’m dead!”

Sheridan cradles Luis and caresses his cheek as she tells him, “I’ve waited my whole life for a man like you. You’re everything that I ever wanted, ever dreamed of.” Luis, floating above the cabinets and looking down at Sheridan crying, responds, “You’re everything I ever dreamed of. I treasure every moment with you. You gave my life new meaning. And now…..”, he trails off as he looks down at the shelf just below where he is floating. “Martin Fitzgerald, a file on my father.” Luis reaches out to try to grab the file but he can’t. He smiles and says, “You know what, I don’t care. If I were offered a chance to see what was in that file to find out about my father or to spend the rest of my life with you, there’d be no choice. I’d spend it with you. Sheridan weeps, “Don’t leave me, Luis. I love you. I love you.”

Luis is being pulled up higher to the light so he shouts that he doesn’t want to go. He isn’t ready to die. Sheridan cries over Luis’ body, “My love, my sweet, sweet love.” She leans down to place a kiss on his lips. As she lifts her head, Luis’ eyes begin to open. Sheridan says that Luis is alive. He has come back to her. She turns her eyes to Heaven and thanks God. Luis looks around trying to get his bearings as Sheridan hugs him to her. Luis begins to get up with a little help from Sheridan. He looks up to where he had been floating moments before and said that it was the weirdest thing. He had been floating around over there looking down and he could see her crying over his dead body. Sheridan hugs him and says that she thought that she had lost him. Luis looks stunned but asks if it is possible that he was dead for a minute. Sheridan says that she doesn’t know but “the Angels knew how much I loved you and how much I needed you and they gave you back to me, never to take you away again.” This whole time Sheridan has been touching his chest, back, arm, face, and hair to assure her that he is not dead and to express her happiness at having him with her. Luis takes Sheridan’s hand from his chest and places it in his hand. He tells her that it is strange but when he was floating around over there, he saw something, something important, and something that could affect both of their lives. What was it?

Luis says that whatever was up there was beside him when he was floating near the ceiling. He says that he can’t remember what it was now. How can that be? Sheridan answers, “I don’t know, Honey.” Luis says that he knows it was something important. Sheridan is glad that they at least found her mother’s diaries. Luis looks confused and asks, “What?” Sheridan reminds him of finding her mother’s diaries and she says that even though her mother died before Martin disappeared, she had hoped that there would be some hints as to what happened to Martin and whether the Cranes had anything to do with it. Luis tells her that they have to get out of there or they won’t even get to read them. Sheridan reminds him that at least they can breathe thanks to him. Luis reminds her that the guards are going to find them soon enough and will take the diaries and they will never see them again. Sheridan asks if there is anything they can do before the guards come. Luis paces the floor a minute before he spies the control box for the sprinkler system. He tells Sheridan that if he can hot wire that the sprinklers will go off and the door will open. They will be able to get out with the diaries. Sheridan tells him that is electrical so he could be hurt again. Luis says that it will be all right. Sheridan asks if there isn’t another way because he could be electrocuted again. She is so worried about losing him again. Luis tells her that this is it, the only way out with the diaries. Sheridan says to let Julian have the diaries if there is the slightest chance that he could be electrocuted. Luis looks at Sheridan and says that he has to do this. He will not just sit and wait to be caught by Julian Crane. Sheridan can only stand by and watch as Luis opens the box of wires.

Alistair tells Julian that an alarm is going off at Crane Industries. It is in the Crane Archives.

Luis has hot-wired the sprinkler system and the water begins pouring from the sprinklers in the ceiling. Sheridan squeals with joy! Luis laughs out loud shouting that he did it. He tells Sheridan that it is a little trick that Sam taught him. Sheridan runs to get his coat. As they are putting their coats on, the door opens. Luis tells Sheridan to look at the door. They are going to get out of there and she tells Luis that he has saved them and gives him a big kiss.

Luis pulls away from the kiss that he is enjoying so much to say, “Why don’t we take this back to your place, take a real shower, finish reading your mother’s diaries, and make love all night long.” Sheridan giggles and says that she is a fast reader. They kiss again. Awww...they are so adorable in these scenes. As Luis leads the way through the door, he stops Sheridan by telling her that they can’t leave.

Alistair tells Julian on the phone that the sprinkler system went off. He tells Julian that he must get over there and turn that water off. It will ruin all of his art work and documents.

Sheridan says that she doesn’t understand. Luis says that they can’t leave just yet. Sheridan wants to know why because the guards will be there soon to check on the sprinkler system going off. As Luis moves further back into the vault, he says that he knows that but something is bugging him. Sheridan asks what it is that is bugging him. He says that it is just a feeling and it seems important, real important. He can’t seem to get it out of his mind. Sheridan reminds him that they have her mother’s diaries so what else could it be? Luis doesn’t answer because he is engrossed in looking around and trying to remember……….

4.28.08, 1:15 AM
In the vault with the sprinklers drenching them with rain-like water, Sheridan clutches the diaries under her coat to protect them. She tells Luis that they need to leave before the guards arrive. Luis keeps looking around but tells her that he has the feeling that something in that vault will lead him to his father. He asks her to wait one more minute. He walks around the room stopping below the shelf that holds the file with his father’s name on it.

Luis has moved back to one of the shorter file cabinets and is looking through the top drawer. He asks where it could be. Sheridan tells him that he doesn’t even know what he is looking for. He knows that but he knows that he saw something that had to do with his father after the shock. Sheridan thinks that is impossible because he was lying completely still on the floor with his eyes closed. Luis saw her, though, and he doesn’t know how to explain it but when he was floating above he saw her. He asks Sheridan if he said anything to her. She says that he did not. She thought that he was dead. Luis insists that he saw something that had to do with his father. Sheridan says that he isn’t making any sense. Luis thinks that maybe whatever it is isn’t visible from where they are now. Sheridan tells him once again that someone will be coming to see about the sprinklers soon. She wants to leave. Luis looks around, sees the ladder and starts to climb. Sheridan looks after him like he has lost his mind because he certainly isn’t in any hurry to prevent Julian catching them.

Julian is on his way up in the elevator when Alistair calls to warn Julian that no one had better found that file on Martin Fitzgerald. In the vault, Sheridan walks toward Luis on the ladder and begs him to please hurry. Luis is still searching a few shelves away from THE file. Julian is at the entrance to Crane Industries on that floor, and the door opens to him.
Luis climbs higher on the ladder. Sheridan wants him to be careful because the rungs are all wet. Luis reaches around the corner and slides off the ladder. Sheridan, in a voice and manner reminiscent of a mother talking to a head-strong child, tells Luis, “You see. Will you please get off the ladder!” Luis says he will just adjust it and return to searching when Sheridan hears someone and tells Luis that someone is coming. Julian is telling the guards that he thinks that someone has broken into the archives. When he reaches the room and sees that the door is open, he knows that he locked the door himself. Sheridan warns Luis that it is Julian and they can’t let him catch them in there. Luis comes down from the ladder to join Sheridan but he keeps looking up at the shelf with the file on Martin.

Luis tells Sheridan that there are a couple of things he wants to check out. Sheridan says, “Forget it, Luis! We can’t let Julian find us in here.” Julian tells the guards that the door is open so whoever set off the sprinkler system could still be in there. He pushes one of the guards in front of him for protection as they enter the vault and find nothing. Sheridan and Luis sneak out from behind a cabinet and out the vault door as Julian and the guards look the other way.
One of the guards is now telling Julian that someone cut the wires and Julian surmises that he must have locked someone in the room when he sealed the vault. Al calls right on cue to belittle Julian. Al tells Julian to look for the diaries. If they are gone, they will know who outsmarted Julian once again.

Sheridan and Luis are back at Sheridan’s cottage. They have taken a shower, changed into dry clothes and Sheridan reads her mother’s diaries as Luis lies on the couch. Sheridan tells Luis that she may have found something so she reads the passage to him. Katherine wrote that something troubling happened at dinner that night when Alistair mentioned that someone in the company was a threat to the family. She asked who it was but Al told her to mind her own business. Luis sits up then crosses over to kneel beside Sheridan’s chair.
http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b369/dolphin711/marta259.jpg (http://s23.photobucket.com/albums/b369/dolphin711/?action=view&current=marta259.jpg)
He takes the book from her hands thinking it might be about his father. He soon discovers that it is the only mention of the man. He looks puzzled so Sheridan asks if he found something else. Luis says that he doesn’t know but he asks her to take a look at the book.

Sheridan looks at the book still in Luis’ hands and says that it looks like some pages might be missing. Luis says that it looks so neat that it looks like it was cut with a razor. Sheridan asks if he thinks that it could have something to do with his father. Luis thinks it could be but he tells Sheridan that it will be no use looking through the rest of the diaries because they won’t find anything. If Katherine wrote anything else regarding Martin it would be cut out, too. Sheridan tells him that she is so sorry but Luis says that this isn’t over. There is something else about his father in that Crane vault if he could only remember where he had seen it.

Julian checks the vault and returns to the phone. He tells Al that the diaries are not there. Al says that obviously Luis was the one to break in the vault aided and abetted by Sheridan. Julian says so what if they have the diaries. All the incriminating pages have been removed. Al says that Julian better hope that they didn’t find the file on Martin Fitzgerald while they were at it. Julian looks concerned as he looks toward the shelf that hides the file. Julian climbs up to the shelf and sees that the file is still there. He goes back to the phone and tells Al that it is still there. Alistair orders Julian to get rid of the file before it falls into the wrong hands.

Sheridan and Luis are sitting on the couch together now. Sheridan has her arm around Luis as he rests his head against her. She is rubbing his arm and telling him to try to relax. Sheridan is worried about his sustaining such a powerful shock. They talk about having out of body experiences (Sheridan had them in the coffin and she has told Luis that). Luis describes how he felt and what it was like as he remembers floating near the ceiling. All of a sudden Luis sits straight up and says that he remembers what he saw. Sheridan looks very hopefully at Luis.

4.29.08, 12:15 AM
All of a sudden Luis sits straight up and says that he remembers what he saw. Sheridan looks very hopefully at Luis. He tells her about what he saw and how he knows where the file is located. He says that he always knew that there was proof that the Cranes had something to do with his father’s disappearance. He needs to get his hands on that file. Alistair tells Julian they can’t let the file fall into the wrong hands. Julian says that he knows what he has to do.

Luis is putting on his coat to go back to Crane Industries to get the file. He says that it is his best chance of getting information on his father. Sheridan wants him to wait and think this over. What if Julian catches him and throws him in jail? Luis thinks that is a chance he has to take. What if him seeing the file was only a dream or his mind giving him something that he wants but knows he can’t have? Luis knows that it wasn’t a dream because he saw that file as clear as day. Sheridan wants to know how he knows that what is inside that file has anything to do his father’s disappearance. The Cranes have files on all of their employees and it may mean nothing. Luis says, yes, they may have files of employees in a drawer or on the computer but not locked away where only 2 people, Al and Julian, have access to them. They want to keep that file from being seen by anyone else and that anyone is him. The reference in her mother’s diary could be about Martin and the only way to find out is to see the file himself.

Sheridan tells Luis that she understands him wanting to go back to the archives to find that file on his father. She wants to know the truth, too, for Luis’ sake, Pillar’s sake and for herself. Until they find out what happened to him, it will be like a big black cloud over them. Luis looks at Sheridan, picks up her coat and hands it to her, saying, “What are we waiting for? Let’s go!” Sheridan promptly drops the coat on the chair and asks Luis how he plans to get back in there since Ethan’s security card doesn’t work and “I don’t know about you but I am fresh out of dynamite.” Boy, Sheridan is making so much sense here and throughout these last few episodes. Luis looks thoughtful for a minute and says that there must be some way to get in the vault. Julian probably has it all sealed off by now. Sheridan says that Julian has been known to go overboard especially when Al is getting after him. Luis says that is true but Julian has also been known to screw up. Maybe he would have forgotten to do something. Maybe there is a way back in. Sheridan asks how. Luis says that he doesn’t know but he has to try. Luis heads toward the door but Sheridan stops him by grabbing his hand. She says that she is going with him because whether he likes it or not, he is stuck with her. Luis answers, “Like it? I love it!” Luis pulls Sheridan in for a kiss. The phone rings and Sheridan answers to find out that it is Ethan. He is happy to hear that she is all right. He and Theresa have been worried sick about her and Luis. Sheridan gives Ethan a short replay of their adventure in the vault and that they did find her mother’s diaries but she is sure that Al and Julian know that she and Luis were the ones who have them. Ethan warns her to be careful. Sheridan knows that there are risks involved but she is willing to take the chance. Luis smiles in the background as she says that. She tells Ethan that she has to go and hangs up the phone. Sheridan grabs her coat and they head out.

Julian climbs up to the shelf and brings down the Marin Fitzgerald file. He says that father is right. If Luis saw what is in this file he would bring down the Crane Empire and send Julian up the river for good.

Sheridan and Luis arrive at the Crane Archives for the second time that day. Luis demands that Julian give him the file on his father. Julian asks how he would know what was in the vault and threatens to have Luis jailed for breaking in the vault earlier. Julian says that Martin was of no consequence so why should they have a file on him. Sheridan says Julian won’t be any help and tells Luis just to get the file. Julian repeats that there is no file on Martin Fitzgerald. Luis climbs the ladder to where he saw the file earlier. It is gone, of course. Luis says that it’s gone and demands that Julian tell him where it is.

Luis says that he will mop the floor with Julian’s face if he doesn’t give him that file. Julian then threatens to sue him and have Luis. Sheridan advises Luis to let it go. Luis walks off to keep searching for the file.

Julian tells Sheridan how surprised he is at her helping someone like Luis. Sheridan was wonderful with the way she handled Julian and the answers she gave him. Luis keeps looking over at Sheridan as he is so proud of her and he loves the way she is defending him and his cause to her brother. Suddenly, Sheridan stops to ask what the noise is and where it is coming from.

Luis and Sheridan, followed by Julian, head down the hallway at CI to a room with a guard shredding papers. Luis picks up the file on top of the shredder and says, “Martin Fitzgerald!” Luis says that the file has already been shredded and he calls Julian an awful name. The guard tries to restrain Luis but he pushes the guard away. Luis tells Julian that he did have a file on his father. He lied to Luis and to his sister Sheridan. Luis gets right in Julian’s face and demands to know what really happened to his father. Julian says that he will tell him. He says that they had to fire Martin Fitzgerald because they caught him with his hand in the till. Sheridan says that same old story as Luis chimes in that it is all a lie. Luis says that shredding his father’s file won’t stop him from finding out what you did to him. Julian is tired of being accused but Luis says that he is sick of their denials. Julian shredded the files for one reason only and that is that there was something that would prove that either Alistair or Julian had something to do with his father’s disappearance or murder, otherwise, Julian would have used the file to prove that his hands were clean. Julian laughs but Sheridan says that Luis is right. By destroying that file, he and her father have destroyed any credibility with her. She will no longer defend the Crane family and will do everything she can to help Luis find out what happened to his father, no matter where the truth takes them. She walks out the door and Luis follows. Julian says in a low voice, “Luis, Sheridan, you’ve just signed your own death warrant.” (What a chilling thought!)

No picture to go along with this episode so I am posting another picture from one of my favorite photo shoots of Shuis...one that had many poses in magazines and even one cover...

What a beautiful couple they make!

4.29.08, 11:52 PM
Back at Sheridan’s cottage, Luis is deep in thought and pacing the floor in the living room. Sheridan comes into the room and tells Luis that she is heating up some leftovers in case he is hungry. He says that he can’t eat. He wants to know when they are going to catch a break. If they didn’t have bad luck, they wouldn’t have any luck at all. Sheridan tries to comfort him with the fact that they did find her mother’s diaries but Luis says that when they started reading them, they discovered that pages were missing and he is sure they have something to do with his father’s disappearance. Sheridan asks if he really thinks that someone knew that there was something incriminating in those diaries that was cut out so no one could read them. Luis says of course because the cover up has been going on since the night his father disappeared. Then there is the file at the Crane archives, the one labeled Martin Fitzgerald. Sheridan asks Luis if he means the file he thought he saw when he had that out of body experience. Luis tells her emphatically that he knows he saw it. Then Julian shredded them so he wouldn’t be able to get his hands on them. Why? Because they must have contained information that he and Alistair didn’t want me to see about my father’s disappearance. The Cranes are all the same. They sneak around and do underhanded things. They are all twisted and evil! Sheridan has a hurt look on her face as she reminds Luis that she is a Crane. She asks if that means that he thinks that she is twisted and evil. Luis just stares at her.

Sheridan can’t even look at Luis. She holds her head down like she is hurt and ashamed. Luis comes to Sheridan and takes her hand in his. He tells her that he does NOT think that she is evil. She says simply that she is a Crane. Luis says that she is different, she is the exact opposite of the others. They are lying back stabbers but you are good, honest, and loving. Sheridan shyly smiles as Luis talks. Luis says that she had risked her life earlier for nothing. She says that it was not for nothing. At least they now know that Julian and Alistair are hiding something. Luis says that he knows what that something is, too. They are hiding the fact that they killed his father!

Sheridan says that Luis is right. Julian and Alistair probably did kill his father. Luis looks at Sheridan and says that is the first time that she has really admitted that. It never occurred to her that her father could do that. She always knew that he was a cold and ruthless businessman but she didn’t believe that he was capable of murder. But just the fact that they are keeping secrets must mean something and what else but this. Luis says that she isn’t involved but she says that they are her family and wonders how she could have been in such denial. Luis reminds her that they are not 100% sure yet. Maybe not but everything points to the fact that her father and brother were responsible for your father’s disappearance and possible murder. Her own father and brother are murders and she says that she is the daughter of a cold-blooded killer. Luis looks away.

Sheridan says again that her father was probably responsible for killing Martin Fitzgerald. Luis says that he knows that he was. Sheridan is so overwhelmed when she thinks about how much Luis and his family, especially his mother, have had to suffer because her family took his father away. Poor Pilar lost the love of her life. Sheridan can’t imagine how she could go on if anyone took Luis away from her. She tells Luis that she can now understand why he has always hated Julian and Alistair so much. Luis tells her that is between them and him. It has doesn’t involve you, Sheridan. Sheridan says that she knows how painful it was when she thought that she was the one who had killed his father. Luis reminds her that those were just nightmares. Sheridan thinks that they seemed so real. She is thankful that Dr. Russell hypnotized her and helped her see that they were just nightmares that had nothing to do with his father. Sheridan says, “But this, this is reality, this is something we have to face. I didn’t kill your father but my family, Julian and Alistair, probably did.” Luis looks very thoughtful but says nothing.

Sheridan looks so sad when she tells Luis that she doesn’t know how he can stay with her, even look at her. Luis tries to say something but she doesn’t stop. She asks him to look at what her family did to his family. They took his father. No one should have to live with a constant reminder of the worst pain that they have ever suffered. She tells his that she wouldn’t blame him if he left her. She wouldn’t blame him if he walked out of her life right now. Luis looks at Sheridan as if he is deep in thought and trying to think of a way to convince her how much he loves her.

As Luis continues to look deep in thought, Sheridan says that she wouldn’t blame Luis if he never wanted to see her again or never wanted to have anything to do with her again. The buzzer goes off in the kitchen so Sheridan excuses herself to check on the food. When she comes back into the living room she is taking off an oven mitt and saying, “Wouldn’t you know it! I burned the leftovers. What else could go wrong?” She stops in her tracks when she sees that the front door is open. She looks around the now empty living room and in a very quiet but devastated voice she says simply, “He’s gone.”

Since I didn't find a picture that was taken from this episode, I am posting my scan of one of the pictures that was printed in SOW from the Passions cast and crew farewell or wrap party after they finished filming their last scenes. This one is of Galen and McKenzie, of course.

5.1.08, 12:18 AM
In Sheridan’s living room, Luis continues to look deep in thought, while Sheridan says that she wouldn’t blame Luis if he never wanted to see her again or never wanted to have anything to do with her again. The buzzer goes off in the kitchen so Sheridan excuses herself to check on the food. When she comes back into the living room she is taking off an oven mitt and saying, “Wouldn’t you know it! I burned the leftovers. What else could go wrong?” Her words trail off and she stops in her tracks when she sees that the front door is open. She looks around the now empty living room and in a very quiet but devastated voice she says simply, “He’s gone.”

Julian is reading the newspaper in his library when Alistair calls. He wants to know what Julian has come up with to break up Luis and Sheridan. Luis is hell-bent on finding out what happened to his father Sheridan is determined to help him so they have to stop that. Julian says he is working on it but it has to be flawless and that takes time. Al says that every second is one step closer to the destruction of the Crane Empire and if their family goes down it will be all Julian’s fault. Al tells Julian that he better come up with a way to rip Luis and Sheridan apart or he would be living under a park bench.

Sheridan closes the front door. Walking slowly back to the couch she says that Luis must have realized that it would be too painful to see her everyday. She would constantly remind him that her family is responsible for his father’s death. Sheridan sits on the couch and cries that she loves him so much. “Luis, how am I ever going to live without you?” Luis’ voice from the door says, “You’re never going to have to answer that.” He smiles and holds his arms out as Sheridan turns her startled face towards him. He then says, “I am going to be your side forever.” Sheridan smiles and says, “Luis” as she jumps up and runs into his arms. They give each other the biggest hugs. (This was a great scene, so meaningful, as are all of the scenes in this episode. This is just one of many episodes that are all reasons that I don’t buy all the rewrites that have come in the last year and a half.)

Luis asks Sheridan why she would ever think that she would have to live without him. She says that it was just that when she came back from the kitchen he was gone. She thought that he had decided that it would be too difficult to see her every day. She would remind him of his father’s disappearance. Luis then says, “Nothing can ever make me leave you.” Sheridan says, “I love you so much,” as she caresses his chest. She looks up and asks him where he went. He tells her that he went to get her something. Something to show you how much I love you. Sheridan looks at the flower he gave her and says that it is beautiful. She can’t believe that he ran all the way to the solarium to get it. Luis says that he didn’t. He picked it right outside. It’s one of the first flowers of spring. Sheridan caresses Luis’ cheek and says that he is so incredibly sweet. Luis tells Sheridan that there is a reason that he got that flower for her. “This flower is like our love.” Sheridan asks, “What do you mean?” Luis replies, “This flower came from a plant that was growing outside. This plant survived the winter. The ground froze trying to keep it down. The flower still blossomed like our love. Nothing can keep it from blossoming and NOTHING can keep us apart.” Sheridan murmurs, “I love you so much.” Luis whispers, “I know,” just before he kisses her.

Alistair tells Julian what he said when Sheridan and Luis were leaving the Crane Archives was “dead on”. (Julian said that Luis and Sheridan had signed their own death warrants.)
Sheridan asks Luis if he really means it ….that nothing will come between them. Taking Sheridan’s hand in his and holding them snuggly between their chests, Luis says, “From the bottom of my heart, I swear that there is nothing that could ever keep us from being together.” Sheridan answers, “When you say that I feel so safe, protected.” Luis tells her that is exactly how she should feel. We’re going to be together forever. With her hand brushing Luis’ cheek, Sheridan says once again that she loves him so much. Luis says that he loves her, too, just before they kiss. Luis bends slightly to take Sheridan into his arms. She looks lovingly into his eyes and says that she could spend the rest of her life in his arms. Luis says that is good because that is where she is going to be.

They kiss again as Luis walks off to the bedroom with Sheridan in his arms, alternately kissing and smiling all the way there.

Back in the library, Julian tells Al that it wouldn’t be a good idea to kill Luis because they would be the first people the police would suspect. Al tells Julian that Sheridan must die so the Crane family can survive. He wants Julian to kill Sheridan!

Luis gently places Sheridan on her bed. Sheridan says that he always makes her feel so loved. Luis runs his hand up and down her leg as he tells her that nothing is ever going to come between them. He tells her that he loves her as he places his hand on her face. Then he says that he is going to show her just how much he loves her. Luis takes the flower from Sheridan’s hand and places it on the nightstand for safe keeping. They continue to kiss as they fall back upon the pillows.

“Me kill Sheridan?” Julian says. He thinks Al is joking but Al says that he is serious and that nothing is more serious than protecting the Crane Empire. Julian doesn’t think he can kill his own sister. Alistair says that as head of the Crane family, he has to be willing to do anything it takes including sacrificing one of their own. Alistair then informs Julian that he not only wants him to kill Sheridan but Luis, too. Just make sure they both die!

To be continued……….

Sheridan and Luis are lying on the bed kissing but they are still dressed. Luis tells Sheridan that he loves her so much. Sheridan tells Luis that she loves him, too, and she doesn’t want anything to change what they have right this very second. Luis says that nothing can, nothing will. It’s going to stay like this forever. Sheridan repeats “forever before they lean into another kiss.

Julian is deep in thought in his library. With hands hiding his face, he remembers what Alistair ordered him to do…..kill Luis and Sheridan. Julian gets up off his leather sofa and makes his way to the desk. He opens a drawer and pulls out a gun. He just looks at it.

Sheridan and Luis are now under the covers and are naked. They are both lying on their sides, Luis with his back to Sheridan. She is running kisses across his shoulders and back. (Just adorable and so sexy!) Luis is holding Sheridan’s hand to his chest. Luis sounds like he has had an incredible time…..purring and smiling. Luis tells Sheridan that what they have is so strong. It is unbreakable. Nothing can ever come between them. Luis brings Sheridan’s hand to his lips and kisses it. He asks her if she believes him. Sheridan replies that when he says it that she almost does. That’s something coming from Alistair Crane’s daughter, Julian Crane’s sister. She knows that they would like nothing more than to break Shuis apart. Luis says yes, but he turns on his other side to face Sheridan. He tells her that he is not afraid of her family but he is not going to let their threats stop him from searching for what happened to his father. Sheridan asks if he is positive that they know. Luis says yes, now more than ever he is sure. Why else would they cut the pages out of her mother’s diaries? Why else would Julian shred the file on Martin Fitzgerald? Sheridan thinks that if Julian and Alistair are responsible for his father’s disappearance, then they are capable of doing the same thing to Luis. Sheridan looks so worried and Luis does, too.
Still in bed, Sheridan repeats that Julian and Alistair can do the same thing to Luis, especially if they feel he is getting too close to the truth. They are ruthless when they are threatened. Luis tells her that they know that he is persistent when they know he is on the right track. They are not scaring him off no matter how hard they try. Sheridan thinks that they will do more than try. “What if they do the same thing to you……?” (Her voice trails off not able to say it.) Luis puts his hand on the nape of Sheridan’s neck and quietly says, “Sheridan, the word is murder.” He caresses her cheek.

Julian arrives outside Sheridan’s bedroom and is looking in through the window at Sheridan and Luis. The window is ajar so he can hear them talking.

Luis tells Sheridan that he hopes that they didn’t murder his father. He hopes to God that his father is still out there. Whatever went down, he knows that Julian and Alistair are involved because they’ve gone to such great lengths to cover it up.

Listening at the window, Julian has his gun pointed at Sheridan and Luis but he turns away and sits on the ground under the window. He says that he just can’t kill his own sister. He mumbles about disobeying father’s orders but gets an idea that he can talk to Sheridan and convince her to drop Luis. That’s it; he will talk some sense into her, brother to sister. Julian turns back to the window in time to hear Sheridan tell Luis that as hard as it is for her to believe that Julian and Alistair could kill someone, if they did it once, they can do it again. Then she says, “I swear if anything happens to you, Luis, I will not stop until I can prove that they are behind it.” Julian gasps and says, “Why did you have to say that? You’ve just signed your own death warrant, Sheridan.” That is the second time that Julian has used that phrase…..ugh!!!

Luis tells Sheridan that he doesn’t want her to worry about Julian and Alistair but Sheridan asks, “How can I not worry when you’ve thrown down the gauntlet and told them that you are not going to give up until you find out what they did. They are not going to take that very well!” Luis responds with a Ssshhhh and a heart-stopping kiss. As the kiss ends Sheridan says, “If you think you are going to shut me up with kisses…..”, but Luis kisses her again and again, saying, “Umm”. Sheridan murmurs, “Ummm” now, gives in to his kisses and says, “You’re right!” She throws her arms around his neck and pulls him to her. They were just so adorable in these scenes, so playful yet so romantic.

Julian standing outside the Book Café tells Alistair that of course Sheridan and Luis are still alive. He couldn’t very well kill them in cold blood without some sort of plan. Julian goes into the Book Café, orders an espresso, and asks about murder mysteries. The clerk brings Julian a handful of books about committing the perfect crime.

Sheridan and Luis are again basking in the afterglow of making love. This time Luis is the one kissing Sheridan’s neck and shoulders. Luis asks if he got her to stop worrying about Julian and Alistair. She purrs, saying that he did a whole lot more than that. Luis grins and says that he did as he plays with her hair. Sheridan says that the trouble with that is that the happier she is, the more scared she is that it won’t last. “I am so afraid I’ll lose you.” Luis replies, “NEVER! There is nothing that your father or brother can do to break us apart.”

To be continued……….

Once again, I wasn't able to find screen caps to go along with this episode but I am posting one of the many magazines where Shuis were privileged to have graced the covers. This is one from that photo shoot that was used in so many of the mazagine articles.

Thanks, Ann!

5.3.08, 12:26 AM
Ethan and Theresa are stand outside the Book Café watching Julian through the window. Ethan is concerned by how angry Julian was about Sheridan and Luis having been in the Crane archives. Ethan decides that he needs to see Sheridan. Theresa wants to go with him so they head to Sheridan’s cottage.

Walking into the living room of Sheridan’s cottage, Luis tells Sheridan that Julian and Alistair may rule in the financial world but when it comes to them, they have no clout whatsoever. Sheridan say to tell them that. “You’ve admitted that they’ve done gone to extreme lengths to cover up what they have done to your father. Who’s to say what they’ll do to us to keep us from finding out what it was?” Sheridan looks so worried. Luis, who is now wearing the tightest jeans that he owns (LOL!), pulls Sheridan to him to comfort her.

Now sitting on the couch holding hands, Luis tells Sheridan, “You can take this one to the bank. I’m not going to let anything happen to us.” There is a knock on the door that visibly startles both Sheridan and Luis. Sheridan hopes that it is not Julian. Luis stands and asks who is at the door. Ethan calls out that it is he and Theresa. Sheridan says, “Thank goodness.” Luis breathes a sigh of relief. Luis stands in front of the couch as Sheridan goes to open the door. Theresa says that they are sorry that it is so late. Sheridan tells them to come in. They were still up. She asks if they would like coffee. Both Ethan and Theresa say no. Ethan says that they ran into Julian in town. He asks Shuis to tell him what is going on. Sheridan asks why and wants to know what Julian said to him. Ethan tells her that Julian didn’t say a lot but is still ranting and raving about him giving Sheridan his security card so they could get into the archives. Theresa asks how Julian knew that they were in the vault anyway. Sheridan says that it is a long story. Luis says they avoided being busted the first time but they had a run in with Julian on their return visit. Ethan wants to know why they risked going back. Luis tells him that he was looking for a file. After a pause he says, “On Martin Fitzgerald.” Theresa wants to know why the Crane’s would have a file on their papa in their top secret vault. Luis says that is what he was trying to find out. Sheridan continues the story by telling ET that it was too late because by the time they got there the file was being shredded by one of Julian’s lackeys. Ethan asks what Luis thinks they were trying to cover up. Luis says, “How about murder?” ET look shocked.

Julian is sitting at the Book Café by himself looking through some books to get some ideas on how to murder Sheridan and Luis. First he imagines putting poison in some chocolate cake and sending it to them from the mansion. Then he decides that won’t do because Sheridan is always on some kind of diet or the other so she might not eat enough to kill her. She might just be sick and that would be a painful death. He couldn’t do that to Sheridan. She is his sister. He has to come up with something “more humane.” LOL! Then he thinks that maybe he can fix the brakes on Sheridan’s car to kill her when she and Luis go out on one of their romantic evenings. No, there are too many things that can go wrong in a car crash. There must be some less ghoulish way to obey Alistair’s orders.

Back at Sheridan’s cottage, Ethan asks if Luis really thinks the Cranes murdered his father. Luis answers that they must have done something to him or they wouldn’t have gone to so much trouble to keep Luis from knowing what it was. Sheridan tells ET about the pages that are missing from her mother’s diaries. She and Luis are pretty sure that they must be about Martin Fitzgerald. Luis asks, “Why would Julian have the file shredded and not let me see it?” Ethan answers because that is what the Crane’s do. They value privacy above all else. Sheridan says that’s true in such a matter of fact tone. Luis looks at her and walks off to the other side of the room. Ethan follows and tells Luis that he is not trying to defend them because he doesn’t have to but from a lifetime of being one of them, he knows what they do. They are paranoid about anyone knowing anything about their business. Luis counters that if anyone should know what they are capable of it is Ethan. Theresa moves to stand beside Ethan and tells Luis that Ethan is on their side. Luis says he is not saying that Ethan isn’t on their side but just that old habits die hard and Ethan is used to being one of them. Ethan says that Luis is right about that. It will take him time to get used to not being a Crane but Theresa is right that he is on their side, just as Sheridan is. Sheridan walks to Luis’ side and puts her hand on his arm. Ethan asks what else Luis thinks the Cranes are up to besides covering up what happened to his father. Luis says that he and Sheridan were just discussing that. Sheridan tells ET that she keeps telling Luis that Julian and Alistair will go to any lengths to get what they want. Ethan says that’s how they get to the top and stay there, by methodically eliminating the competition. Luis chimes in, “You mean like they did with my father?” Ethan answers that he is talking about their business practices not real life. Luis asks him if he honestly thinks that Julian and Alistair can differentiate between the two.

Ethan responds that he knows where Luis is coming from but he doesn’t think that Julian and Alistair would go as far as to kill someone. Luis thinks that maybe Ethan is a little too close to the matter to see what is so obvious to everyone else. He thinks that Ethan’s ex-family is capable of just about anything when push comes to shove. Ethan thinks that Luis’ hatred for the Cranes has gone on so long that he can’t see things clearly. Luis opens his mouth to respond but Sheridan tells the men that is enough. This is not getting them anywhere and she wants to talk about something more pleasant. Theresa says that is a great idea and promptly changes the subject to her wedding. She tells them that she and Ethan have gotten their blood tests so they can get married as soon as they want to. Sheridan thinks that is wonderful and hugs Theresa. Luis holds out his hand to Ethan as he tells him what a lucky man he is. Sheridan hugs Ethan as Luis hugs Theresa saying that he can’t believe that his little sister is getting married. Theresa says that she has a fantasy that their papa is alive somewhere and will see the announcement about the wedding and come home just in the nick of time. Luis tells her that is a nice fantasy to believe in. Theresa says that maybe Antonio, too. Sheridan asks if that is their brother. Luis says he’s been MIA ….and trails off, and then says “for years.” Luis then tells Theresa that he supposes that anything is possible. Theresa says that is right. She knows this is going to be the most perfect wedding. She then asks if they told Shuis that Chad had agreed to be Ethan’s best man. Ethan says that’s right unless Chad is getting married himself. Sheridan wants to know what that is all about. Theresa says they are working on Chad and Whitney.

Clutching a book called PERFECT MURDERS to his chest, Julian passes Sheridan’s cottage on his way to the mansion. He is deep in thought.

Ethan and Theresa now sit on the couch as Sheridan moves to sit on the arm next to Ethan. Luis sits in the chair. Theresa says that she and Ethan have been through enough. Nothing is getting in the way of a perfect wedding. Sheridan says that she will second that. Luis says so will he. He doesn’t want his little sister to worry about anything. Theresa answers that it is a deal if he promises not to worry about the Cranes. Luis says that it is a deal. Sheridan walks to the window and looks out to see Julian standing there looking at her cottage. She turns slightly and says, “Please don’t come after Luis, Julian. Please leave us alone.” She looks very worried.

No screen caps from these scenes to be found so here is an article from SoapOperaUpdate (9/25/01 issue) about the celebration of Passions' second birthday at a fan luncheon. McKenzie and Lindsay sang together. They all look like they were having a great time.

Sorry, no Shuis summary tonight. I have had problems with my computer freezing up today every time I would go on line or to some of my regular sites. I got so tired of having to reboot after only a few minutes! My son finally came home a little while ago, did something to my computer and it seems to be doing fine now, but we shall see. Anyway, I didn't have time to write up a summary so hopefully, I will be back to writing tomorrow night.

5.5.08, 1:20 AM
Sheridan is still looking out the window of her living room as Luis helps himself to another cup of coffee and Theresa says that she doesn’t think that anything will harm she and Ethan’s wedding or Sheridan and Luis either. Ethan says that they are safe and no one will interfere with their wedding plans but he wouldn’t put it past Julian and Alistair to derail Luis and Sheridan. Their being together is a threat to the Crane family secrets. Luis asks if it is because he is determined to find out the truth about his father. That is correct. Julian and Alistair have something to hide. Luis says that he knows that Sheridan’s father and brother have no problem playing dirty but he isn’t going to let anything come between them. Luis smiles lovingly towards Sheridan at the window. She repeats her plea for Julian to stay away from Luis and her. Outside Julian says that he warned her, his dear sister, to stay away from Luis but she refused. Now there is no choice but for both of them to die.

Julian still stands outside Sheridan’s window wishing that she had stayed away from Luis so that they wouldn’t be in the predicament that they are in now. Inside the cottage, Theresa joins Sheridan by the window. She tells Sheridan not to worry. She and Ethan are getting married very soon and Luis and Sheridan are so in love and she knows that they have nothing to worry about. Theresa says there is nothing that Julian and Alistair can do to any of us. Sheridan smiles and tells Theresa that she is so happy for ET. She agrees with Theresa that no one will interfere with the ET wedding now that Ethan is not a Crane. Theresa asks if Sheridan thinks that Julian and Alistair will do something to come between her and Luis. She says yes and sadly turns away. Luis comes up to Sheridan and tells Theresa not to upset Sheridan. Theresa says that she wasn’t but she was just telling Sheridan that the Cranes won’t try to come between Shuis. Luis says she is right. There was a time when they might have been able to come between them but not now. Their relationship is rock solid. There is nothing they can do. The only way Julian could keep him away from Sheridan now is to kill him. Sheridan looks panicked as she says, “Don’t say that!” Luis, seeing how worried she is says that he is sorry and pulls her to him. Sheridan then says that Luis may want to think that Julian isn’t going to break us up but he may think differently. Luis asks what makes her say that. Sheridan informs Luis that Julian has been outside watching them for a while now. Luis looks out the window then rushes out the door followed by Ethan.

Luis and Ethan return to the cottage and inform Sheridan that there was no sign of Julian. Sheridan is sure that she saw him. Luis thinks that maybe she imagined him due to the talk of Julian breaking them up. Sheridan says no, it was so real. Julian seemed so frightening, so cold, and so angry. Ethan says that she was probably just imagining him because he just can’t see Julian stalking anyone. Luis says not to talk about Julian anymore and asks Sheridan to go for a walk.

In his library, Julian is pouring himself a drink when Al calls. He wants to know what Julian is going to do about Shuis. Julian says again that Sheridan is his sister, his own flesh and blood. He can’t kill her. Al says that Sheridan has to be eliminated. She helped Luis break into the Crane archives and they almost found the file on Martin Fitzgerald. That wasn’t the first time either. She helped Luis try to break into the safe right there in the library. Al says that he can’t allow his daughter to continue to work against the family. Julian says that killing them is extreme. They should just wait and see what happens. Sheridan has an atrocious track record when it comes to men. Maybe she will break up with Luis and forget all about him. Al laughs and says that isn’t going to happen. Luis is not like the other men in Sheridan’s past. He doesn’t want her money, he just wants her and he will fight to keep her. The only way to eliminate the threat they pose is to kill them both.

Sheridan and Luis walk around the estate stopping at the gazebo where Luis tells Sheridan to relax because nothing can come between them. Sheridan says she wishes she could believe that but she is so afraid of the future because she has been so unlucky in love. Luis says that her luck has changed now because she is his girl now. He gives her that sexy and cocky grin before he kisses her. Sheridan smiles that she is his girl now and she couldn’t be happier. She wishes she were more like Theresa. Luis asks how so. Theresa has such faith in love and believes that nothing can come between two people in love. She wishes she had that confidence. She turns away but Luis grabs her chin and tells her that Theresa is a romantic who believes that two people fall in love, get married and stay together forever. Sheridan would like to believe that, too. She thinks that you can’t just jump into marriage. Luis says that marriage is a major commitment. You don’t want to make a mistake. Sheridan agrees that you want to make sure that your love will last. Luis says that you want it to last forever. Sheridan replies, “Forever”.

When Julian tells Al that buying and reading a book don’t make you a murderer, Al tells him to go on the internet because he will find every evil known to mankind at his fingertips. Al warns Julian that if Sheridan and Luis find out the truth about what happened to Martin, he won’t be in prison but Julian will. (Hmm…. Sounds harsh for Kat and Martin only running off together. LOL!)

Luis and Sheridan sit down at the table in the gazebo. Luis thinks that it must be hard to know when you find the one person in the world that is your soul mate. Sheridan agrees that it must be very hard. Luis believes that people sometimes fool themselves into believing that they have found their soul mate because they are lonely, on the rebound, or want to start a family. He says that there was no way he could have married Beth right out of high school. She wanted him to commit to marriage but he just couldn’t. Part of that was his having to take care of his family after his father disappeared but in the back of his mind he was worried that there would be someone else. Sheridan asks if he means his soul mate. Yes, that is what Luis meant…..his soul mate. Sheridan tells Luis that she can understand him not wanting to rush into marriage after her fiasco with Jean Luc. At the same time it would be a mistake to wait too long. Something could happen to wreck two people’s one chance at happiness.

Julian is sitting in the library in the dark with drink in hand when Rebecca enters. They talk for a while. Rebecca sees how sad and despondent Julian seems and offers to help him with whatever he has to do that he doesn’t want to do.

Holding hands, Luis tells Sheridan that there are no hard and fast rules when it comes to love. You just know when it’s the real thing. Sheridan asks Luis how you know that you are with that one special person you are supposed to be with forever. Before Luis can answer, he gets a call from the station. As he talks on his phone, Luis and Sheridan each wonder if the other is the one special one that they are supposed to be with forever. They look at each other and smile.
To be continued……….

Once again, I don't have screen caps for this episode but I found a couple of pictures of McKenzie taken at a recent opening. She looks so cute with her new hair style.

5.6.08, 1:40 AM
Luis puts his phone away. Sheridan walks over to him and asks if everything is all right at the station. Luis says that it is. They just wanted to give him his schedule for next week. Sheridan smiles and says that she supposes that they didn’t have any answers for them. Luis says no. He doesn’t think the desk sergeant would ever let him hear the end of that. Sheridan again asks Luis how one knows when their relationship will last forever. Luis answers that if they spend enough time together they will just know. Luis thinks that one day they will just look at each other and they will just know. He thinks that there is something that a couple can do and they should do it often. Sheridan asks what that would be. Luis shows her by pulling her into a heart-stopping kiss.

Ummm…….Sheridan ask if this mean that if the couple does this enough, they will know that their love will last forever. Luis answers that is right. Sheridan says that there must be other ways of finding out. Luis thinks that you can look at how other people react to seeing the couple together. We have all seen couples that we know shouldn’t be together. Luis maneuvers Sheridan so that he can hold her from behind. He says it works the other way, too. When a couple is right for each other, everyone can tell that they belong together. Sheridan knows what he means because she thinks that about ET. She thinks that they are perfect for one another. Luis says that he didn’t want to admit it at first but he thinks they are perfect for one another. Sheridan says that she has a confession to make. She turns in Luis arms to face him. “I am not talking about any other couple. I’m talking about us. I want to know if we are ready to make a real commitment to each other.” Luis just looks at her.

Julian once again tells Alistair that he cannot kill his sister. While he is talking to Al, he remembers his promise to his mother on her death bed that he would always take care of Sheridan.

Sheridan asks Luis to say something. When he doesn’t immediately respond, Sheridan talks a mile a minute thinking that she has scared Luis off with all this talk of commitment. She knows they haven’t been together for very long, etc. He finally gives her one of those wonderful kisses to stop her from continuing. When she is quiet, Luis tells her that he wasn’t talking about a hypothetical couple either. He was talking about them. Sheridan smiles at Luis.

Sheridan and Luis are kissing again. What a beautiful sight! Sheridan says that she is so happy that Luis was thinking the same thing that she was. She asks how they know they are ready to make a commitment to each other. Luis comes up with an idea of how they can find out. He tells Sheridan that there is a place in Harmony where they can go to find out. Sheridan asks what you have to do at this place. Luis says the couple has to do something together and if they are successful, they will stay together forever. Luis grabs Sheridan’s hand to leave immediately but Sheridan pulls him back. She isn’t sure that she wants to find out because she has been so unlucky in love. She doesn’t know if she can handle it if they don’t pass. Luis agrees not to go but Sheridan asks if he thinks they can pass. He says that he does. Sheridan says all right then, let’s do it. She really wants to know if they are ready to make a commitment to each other. They leave for their test.

To be continued……….

No screen caps to go with these episodes so I thought I would repost some of the famous Shuis tangos.

5.7.08, 12:42 AM
Sheridan and Luis arrive at the site where Luis says they can take a test to find out if they are ready to commit to one another. Luis wants to know if Sheridan wants to go through with this. She does since it is a Harmony tradition. Luis says they have arrived. Sheridan looks up, sees the place and asks Luis if this is some kind of joke. He assures her that it is not. This is where they can find out if they are going to be together forever. Sheridan says in a very skeptical tone, “Sally Chinn’s House of Noodles”? (LOL! We all know that Shuis are perfect for each other.) Luis tells Sheridan that every couple he knows that has a successful relationship has passed the test. Sheridan asks what happens if they don’t pass this test. Luis says they will……no sweat. Sheridan wishes she were that positive. Luis puts his arm around her and tells her to quit worrying. She tells Luis that what they have, their relationship means everything to her. Luis says it means everything to him, too. Sheridan turns to face Luis and says, “You know, Luis, you’ve always had love in your life. Your family has always been so supportive and caring. I’ve never had that kind of love. You know my family, cold and distant, except for my mother. She died when I was so young. This love that we have is terribly precious to me. If I were to find out that I wasn’t going to have it forever, I don’t think I could bear it.” Luis tells her that she will never have to worry about that. Sheridan says, “Just the same, I think I would rather pass on the restaurant. I will hang on to my illusions and just keep on pretending that this love we have will go on forever.” Luis reaches out and holds her close to him and offers all his comfort and love.

Luis releases Sheridan and says, “Forget about illusions. We are reality here. I love you and I am not about to stop loving you anytime soon.” Sheridan says that she knows all that but if they were to take this test and fail, she doesn’t know how she would react or how she would feel. “I am so afraid of losing you, Luis.” Luis tells her that she has to trust him about one thing. He would never do anything to hurt her. The only reason he suggested going to the restaurant was because they were talking about how a couple knows they are ready to commit to each other. He thought it would be fun. Sheridan smiles and says that Luis is right. She is just acting silly. Luis says that if she is worried they can turn around and go. Sheridan asks Luis again if he thinks they can pass this test. Luis grins and says that he is positive! But if it makes her uncomfortable……. Sheridan interrupts to tell Luis that he is such an incredibly caring man. It is amazing how understanding he is. Luis responds, “I love you. You come first. I just want you to be happy.” Sheridan tells him that it has been a long time since anyone cared about her happiness, not since her mother died. She doesn’t want to let fear rule her life because that would truly be silly. She finally says, “Let’s get in there and ace this test!” Luis asks if there are any doubts. Sheridan answers, “Nary a one! I can’t wait to see if we are ready to commit to each other.” Luis says that they should go see Sally. They put their arms around each other and head towards the restaurant.

Inside the restaurant Sheridan and Luis are greeted by Sally. Sally asks if it will be two for dinner. Luis leans over to her and tells her that and something more. Sally says, “Oh the noodle! You came here for the noodle.” As they follow Sally to a table, Sheridan asks what this is about a noodle. Luis says that she will see. As they take their coats off to be seated, Sheridan asks Luis how many times he has been there and how many women have taken the test with him. Sally tells Sheridan that Luis has been there countless times but never has he brought such a beautiful woman and never has he been here with someone for a test. “You must be a very special lady for Luis to want to take the test with.” Luis reaches his hands across the table to hold Sheridan’s hands and says that she is. Sally says that she sees something very deep between them. She thinks that the test will be a mere formality. She thinks that Sheridan is the woman for Luis. They are ready to make a commitment and they will be together forever. Sheridan is just glowing as Luis smiles upon her with such love in his eyes.

As they wait for their test, Sheridan asks Luis about the test. He tells her that his parents took the test before they were married which shows how good it is at predicting happiness. Sheridan reminds Luis that his father disappeared. Luis doesn’t think it was because his father wanted to leave his family. He could have proven that if Julian had not shredded that file or the pages hadn’t been torn out of her mother’s diaries. Under his breath, Luis says, “Damn Cranes!” Sheridan sadly turns her head away. Luis sees her and tells her how sorry he is. She knows that he blames her family for his father’s disappearance. Luis tells her that he doesn’t blame her. All of a sudden, Luis says that they are going to forget about all of this and have a happy evening. They are going to pass this test with flying colors. Sheridan hopes so. Luis doesn’t want her to get the wrong idea about the test. Just because you pass it doesn’t mean that you won’t have problems in life. It just means that you are ready to make a commitment. Sheridan jokes that they are definitely going to have problems if he doesn’t tell her what the test consists of. Luis says not a whole lot. He sees Sally approaching their table so he tells Sheridan to see for herself. Sally says they are all set. Sheridan asks, “Where is the test?” Sally says this is it. The love noodle! Sheridan smiles but looks quite surprised.
In that disbelieving voice, Sheridan asks, “This is the test? This noodle? This is how you know you’re going to be together forever?” Sally says, “Yes, the love noodle. It is an ancient custom in her family. If a couple can eat a noodle all the way to the middle without it breaking and meet for a kiss…” Luis says the kiss is very important. Sally thinks that Sheridan can handle that to which Sheridan answers, “No problem.” She says that she is sure they will pass with flying colors. Sally gives one end of the noodle to Luis and the other end to Sheridan. Sally tells them that when they meet in the middle all the way without it breaking, you will be together forever. Luis chimes in, “You forgot about the kiss part.” Sheridan says that she won’t forget. Sally tells them that she has a feeling this will work so well and they will be married very soon. Luis says that she sounds like his sister. Sally says that his sister is a very wise woman. Now eat! Sheridan and Luis begin to eat the noodle from their respective ends while looking into each other’s eyes. Hecuba wants to do evil and is using Julian. She sees Shuis looking happy and she can’t have that so she zaps the noodle and it breaks in the middle just as Shuis are about to meet for the kiss. Sally can’t believe it. This has never happened before. Sheridan is devastated!

Sheridan cannot believe what has happened. She keeps picking at the broken piece of noodle on the plate in disbelief. Sally says that she was so sure they had it, true love and they would be together. Luis stops Sally and tells both her and Sheridan that it doesn’t mean anything. Sheridan, it is just a noodle. Just because it broke it doesn’t mean that they are not going to be together forever. He tells Sally that they needed it al dente. Hecuba says that Sheridan should be worried because Shuis can’t be together because her brother Julian is going to kill them. Sheridan has not spoken, looks to be in shock and is inconsolable. Poor Sheridan! Poor Shuis!

Here are a few more Shuis tango pics. No one does it like Shuis. These, like the ones last night, are from the first tango at Pilar's birthday party.

Thanks, Ann. Beautiful Shuis tangoes!

Sheridan is beyond upset about the love noodle breaking before she and Luis meet in the middle for the kiss which would mean that they were ready to make a commitment to each other and would be together forever. Ethan and Theresa arrive at the Chinese restaurant ready to take the test themselves. Theresa spots Shuis and tells Ethan that they must be there to take the test, too. They see that Sheridan doesn’t look very happy so they head over to the table to see what is wrong. Sally is telling everyone that she doesn’t know what happened. She thought that they were going to be perfect for each other. Theresa asks if the noodle broke. Sheridan gravely answers that she and Luis will never be a couple. She is so sad over what just happened.

Hecuba is laughing over Sheridan being in pain. Luis tries his best to tell Sheridan that things are all right. Things have not changed between them. Luis still loves her and they are going to be together. Luis says, “I love you. I will always love you. Just because the noodle broke doesn’t mean hat our relationship is on the rocks or that we won’t be together.” Sally says that Luis is right. It was probably just a defective noodle.

Luis says what is important are his feelings for her. Ethan tells Sheridan that a noodle is just flour and egg. Luis says that he will always love her and nothing is going to change that. Theresa asks Sheridan to listen to him. Sheridan says that she is. She is sorry that she freaked out. It’s just that she saw her whole life being pulled away from her. Luis says again that nothing is going to pull him away from her. Sally wants to bring them another noodle to retake the test but Sheridan says it isn’t necessary. Luis is all she needs. Luis always makes her feel better. He always does. Sally is going to bring them all a supreme dinner on the house to make up for what happened. Ethan turns it down at first but Theresa and Luis tell him never to turn down free food. He is one of them now. LOL!

Shuis and ET are enjoying their free dinners and talking about planning ET’s wedding. ET want to figure out what Shuis can do in the wedding. Luis thinks that he is going to walk Theresa down the aisle. Theresa just blurts out that they have a triple wedding. Sally brings the group fortune cookies to end the meal. Theresa opens hers and reads it to the group. It says,”Two brides for 2 grooms”. Theresa is sure this is a sign that they are going to have a double wedding.
The others want Sheridan to open hers next. She doesn’t want to but Luis insists. Sheridan holds her cookie and just looks at it for a minute like she is afraid to see what it says. Hecuba zaps the cookie just as Sheridan cracks it open. She reads the fortune to herself and it looks like she has seen a ghost or something. She says nothing. The others ask her what it says and she answers, “Nothing. It says nothing.” Luis takes the fortune from her hands and reads it, “You will never see children with the man you love.” Luis tries to comfort Sheridan but she is totally devastated now.
Hecuba laughs about Sheridan’s distress over her devastating fortune. ET and Luis try to make Sheridan feel better Sheridan still looks devastated. They are all so concerned about her so she finally tells them that she is all right.

Luis again tells Sheridan that he loves her and will always love her. He asks her not to tell him that she doesn’t believe him because that would really tick him off. Sheridan says that she believes him but he should know how she has always felt about having children. Luis remembers that Sheridan told him that she had this fear that she would never get married or have children. Sheridan tells him that it is like this fortune cookie just confirmed her oldest and deepest fears. Poor Sheridan! Sally arrives at the table again and hopes that they are not still upset about the defective noodle. Luis tells her that it isn’t just the noodle and asks when she started giving out fortunes that frighten the customers. Sally tells Luis that all of their fortunes are fun and romantic. Sally apologizes again but she has never seen a fortune like this one.

Ethan believes that this is obviously a joke by someone who works in a cookie factory. Sheridan wants to talk about something else. Luis begins to talk but sees Julian enter the restaurant and the others turn toward the door and Julian. Sheridan wonders what Julian would be doing there. He doesn’t like Chinese food and he never eats in local restaurants. Ethan says that this is not the kind of place Julian would frequent. Julian then comments that he has never before been in a place that sells “take away”. LOL! Sheridan is concerned about her brother and goes to Julian’s table to talk to him. Sheridan asks if he is all right. They talk a few minutes which makes Sheridan more worried about Julian because he acts so strange. Julian runs Sheridan off. Hecuba is controlling him and keeps telling him to kill Sheridan and to kill Luis.

Back at the Shuis/ET table, Luis gets beeped by the station. He kisses Sheridan and heads off to return the call. ET attempt to cheer up Sheridan with talk of their wedding plans but Sheridan is still too upset. She grabs her coat and purse and tells them that she is going to get some fresh air.
Luis returns to the table. When he doesn’t see Sheridan he asks ET what happened to her. Theresa tells him that Sheridan went out for some air. Ethan adds that she is still upset about that fortune cookie. Luis rushes out to find her. Sally brings another bowl to the table. She asks what happened to Luis and his beautiful girl friend. Ethan says that they had to step out for a bit. Sally says that is too bad because she brought them a special noodle to make up for the defective one. She made this one so strong that there is no chance that it would break. They would definitely pass the test. It is such a shame because they (Shuis) are obviously made for each other……just like you two. She asks if they want to take the test. Theresa says that is why they came there tonight. Sally says with this strong noodle, they have nothing to lose. ET are just about to meet in the middle of the noodle when Hecuba zaps the noodle and it breaks again! Theresa is now the one who is upset with this turn of events. Sally is in the background saying that this is impossible.

Luis finds Sheridan sitting on some steps on the wharf. She wipes her eyes when he calls out to her that he has been looking for her all over the place. As she wipes away what remain of her tears, she tells Luis that she just had to get out of there. Luis asks, “Over a noodle and a fortune cookie?” Sheridan knows that he must think that she is the biggest idiot that ever lived. Luis says, “NEVER”, as he wraps his arms around her from behind. Sheridan tells Luis, “It’s just that everything that I have ever loved has been taken away from me.” Luis attempts to comfort her by telling her, “Sheridan how many times do I have to tell you that is not going to happen.” Sheridan goes on, “Ever since my mother died, I never thought I would find love in my life again. I still kept looking even if it was in all the wrong places. Because of you, I actually started to hope again. I actually started feeling that I would have happiness in my life after all. That is why I’m so terrified of you being taken away from me.” Luis assures, “I’m not going anywhere. I’m going to be here with you always...(he then whispers in the most convincing tone of voice)…..”Always” as he takes her in his arms. These scenes were so beautiful…..beautifully acted and beautifully written.

5.9.08, 1:03 AM
After picking up some coffee, Shuis are now walking through the park. Luis has his arm around Sheridan as he asks her if she is feeling any better. Sheridan nods her head in the affirmative. He says good because he doesn’t want her to think anything as silly as a broken noodle and a fortune cookie could break them up. Sheridan is worried about Julian. After a brief discussion about Julian Shuis stop walking and turn to face each other. The conversation comes around to Al not wanting Luis with Sheridan. Luis tells her that her family is not going to separate them. He loves her. Sheridan says that she loves him, too, but she is still afraid. Love is so fragile and she has lost it so many times before. “You’re not going to lose my love,” Luis emphatically tells her. They kiss and confetti begins falling from the sky. They look up, laugh, and look all around before Luis asks, “What’s this?” Sheridan laughs in amazement and answers, “It must be magic.” They kiss again.

Sheridan and Luis are looking up at the falling confetti when they notice a bride and groom near them in the park. They surmise that a wedding is going on in the park. The photographer tells them that the wedding reception is at the Seascape but the bride and groom wanted to take pictures in the park. He asks Shuis to stay back. The bride says that she is sure they won’t get in the way. The groom says that they want everyone to share in their happiness as he hands Sheridan and Luis each a glass of champagne. Luis offers a toast to the happy couple. The four of them say, “To love” and Shuis keep their eyes on each other as they drink to that sentiment.

At the park, Sheridan watches the bride and groom. She asks if Luis has ever seen a couple so much in love. Luis looks at Sheridan and says that yes he has and he kisses her.
http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb281/shuismagic/34.jpg (http://s207.photobucket.com/albums/bb281/shuismagic/?action=view&current=34.jpg)
Sheridan wonders if she and Luis will ever have that, cutting the cake, taking pictures. ET and Chadney arrive at the park. Theresa thinks that running across a wedding is a sign that there will be another couple getting married with them. She looks over at Shuis, then Chadney and proclaims that she knows which couple it will be. A waiter walks around refilling their glasses. Theresa says it will be Shuis who will be getting married with them. As she watches Sheridan and Luis kissing, Theresa daydreams of a double wedding.
http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b369/dolphin711/doublewed.jpg (http://s23.photobucket.com/albums/b369/dolphin711/?action=view&current=doublewed.jpg)
Sheridan and Luis watch as the groom removes the garter from the bride’s leg. Luis imagines that he and Sheridan are the bride and groom. Sheridan looks so beautiful as the bride! Sheridan says that she has always dreamed of having a big wedding with all the traditions. Luis asks if that includes the garter routine. She says absolutely! They kiss again.

Shuis pass the bride and groom again. Sheridan wonders aloud how they knew they were meant to be married. How does anyone know? Luis enfolds her in his arms from behind as he responds, “I think poets have been trying to figure that out for centuries.”

Holding hands, Shuis continue watching the bride and groom in fascination. Sheridan thinks to herself, “What is my future with Luis? Are we ever going to be bride and groom? Will we love each other for the rest of our lives in sickness and health, for better or worse? Am I going to lose the one man I really and truly love?” She leans over and snuggles close to Luis who asks if she is cold and suggests that they go home. Sheridan replies, “No, I am not cold. I just felt my love for you rush right through me. I love you.” Luis looks into her eyes and says, “I love you.” They kiss again.
Theresa is so excited that Shuis are so in love. They can have a double wedding, maybe even a triple wedding, as she looks toward Chadney.

Shuis snuggle together as they watch the fireworks that Hecuba has created. They are soon joined by ET and Chadney who have come up behind Shuis to also watch the display of fireworks.

Sheridan and Luis are holding hands while walking through the park. Sheridan says that it is nice to see Ethan so happy after all that he has been through. Luis says, “I have to admit they look happy. How about you, Sheridan, are you happy?” Sheridan thinks back to what happened at the Chinese restaurant and doesn’t look as happy as she should. When Sheridan hesitates, Luis tries again, “Come on. Talk to me, Honey. Are you happy?” Sheridan smiles up at Luis.
Once again Luis tries to get an answer from Sheridan, “Come on, Baby. Tell me. Are you happy?” Sheridan finally responds, “Yes, yes I am.” Luis asks if she is still thinking about what happened at the Chinese restaurant. Sheridan says that she knows it sounds silly but he said that the love noodle was a Harmony tradition and every couple that is meant to be together passes the test but they didn’t pass the test. The noodle broke. Luis says that doesn’t matter. “What matters is that we have enough love to last a lifetime.” Sheridan then asks about her fortune cookie. It said that she would never see children with the man she loves. She can’t bear the thought of that. Luis tells her not to think of that. As he touches her chin, he tells her that what matters is their love. She tells him that she loves him. ET rush up to Shuis and tell them that they all need to hurry home so they can help with the wedding planning. The two couples begin walking off together when Sheridan stops to look one more time at the bride and groom kissing. She imagines that she and Luis are the bride and groom. She dreamily smiles and asks, “Will that ever be us, Luis? Will we ever be husband and wife?” She hurries off to catch up to the others.
http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b369/dolphin711/lsael2d.jpg (http://s23.photobucket.com/albums/b369/dolphin711/?action=view&current=lsael2d.jpg)
Shuis and ET arrive at the Lopez-Fitzgerald house to make wedding plans and are greeted by Pilar. The always practical Luis (well, he used to be back then) thinks ET should do some after the wedding planning first like where they will live. Sheridan says she will build an addition onto the cottage for them. Ethan says since he is not a Crane, he shouldn’t be living on the Crane estate. Pilar says they are always welcome to live there but Ethan turns down her offer, too, saying that he wants Theresa to have her own place. Then Luis asks about Ethan’s job prospects. Ethan has interviews lined up but no resume so Theresa runs off to get her computer so they can compose the resume. Sheridan and Luis snuggle close together as Sheridan wonders what her future holds with Luis.

Pilar takes Luis to the kitchen to talk. She thinks that Sheridan looks a bit upset. Luis tells her about what happened at the restaurant tonight. Pilar wants to know if Luis is going to commit to Sheridan. Luis says that he loves Sheridan very much. He has never felt this way about a woman before. Pilar doesn’t want to see Sheridan hurt. Luis says that he would never hurt Sheridan. Pilar knows that Sheridan needs stability and commitment. She asks if Luis intends to provide her with that commitment. Since Sheridan and he just started dating seriously, Luis doesn’t know what he should do. Pilar tells him that he has to follow his heart. If he doesn’t see himself making a commitment to Sheridan then he should tell her so she won’t be hurt. Sheridan walks into the kitchen in time to overhear what Pilar has just said. Sheridan apologizes for interrupting but Luis tells her to stay. There is something that he wants to tell her and he should do it now.

Luis tells Sheridan that his mother is right. He needs to be honest with her about his feelings. Sheridan thinks that he wants to end their relationship. She stands with her back to Luis and her eyes close to ward off tears. She is bracing herself for the bad news. Pilar leaves the room so they can talk. Luis says that it is time for him to be totally honest with her about his feelings. Sheridan turns around to face Luis. She asks what he wants to talk about. Luis just says her name before she stops him by saying that she already knows what this is all about. The love noodle, the fortune cookie. It’s okay. She knew that this was too good to be true. She’s never been lucky in love. She says that she understands and hopes they can be friends. She knows that he doesn’t want to make a commitment. Luis says that she got that all wrong. That is not at all what he was trying to tell her.

Luis tells Sheridan that he doesn’t want to end their relationship. He wants to know why she would even think that. Sheridan says because of the restaurant, the noodle, the fortune. Luis tells Sheridan to look into his eyes. He asks what she sees. He tells her, “Love. I love you and I’ve never felt this way about a woman before.” Sheridan says, “I love you, too, Luis, so much.” They hug. Luis continues, “There are other things we have to consider.” Sheridan wants to know what things. Luis doesn’t think that either of them wants to rush this thing. They are not teenagers. They can take their time. There is no point in rushing things at all. Sheridan agrees with a half-hearted, “Right.” Luis hugs her and says, “That’s great. I love you, Sheridan, I really do.”
Luis wants to be sure that Sheridan does understand what he is saying. Sheridan says that she thinks she does. Luis knows that she has been hurt but he would never hurt her. She says that she knows that. Luis tells Sheridan that he loves her. He doesn’t want them to rush into something if they are maybe not ready. Sheridan understands. Luis then says that he definitely wants to get married one day when the time is right. Sheridan says that she couldn’t agree more. Things will happen when they are supposed to. They will commit to each other, get married, or whatever when they both know that the time is right. Luis laughs and says, “Exactly! Oh, man, this is great. I’m so glad that we see eye to eye.” They smile at each other.

Thanks, Ann for all of the great pictures, and summaries!

5.12.08, 2:05 AM
After Pilar tells Theresa that she will have to cut the cost of her wedding reception in half, Theresa sees Shuis walk in from the kitchen and she knows how she can have the wedding of her dreams while cutting the cost in half. A double wedding is the solution. She just has to convince Sheridan and Luis to be the other couple.

Theresa says that Shuis should just get married with her and Ethan. Sheridan looks shocked that Theresa knows that Sheridan and Luis will be the ones getting married. Luis looks like Theresa is nuts but Sheridan is looking rather dreamy and hopeful.

As Theresa keeps trying to convince them, Luis tells her that they can’t rush into this. Sheridan says that Luis is right. Marriage is a huge decision. Luis says that it is a humongous responsibility, right? Sheridan responds, “Right, humongous.” Luis adds, “Not to mention that Sheridan and I haven’t been going out that long. Although we love each other very much, we don’t think that marriage is necessarily the best thing for us right now, right Sheridan?” Sheridan doesn’t answer so Luis turns around to look at her. All Sheridan can do is smile such a sweet smile.

Luis reminds Sheridan that they just discussed this in the kitchen. He laughs and says that he gets it now. He thinks that she is just teasing him about getting married now. “You were just joking about getting married now, weren’t you? You don’t really want to get married now, do you?” Luis looks scared and Sheridan still says nothing, just smiles.
Luis asks Sheridan again, “You don’t want to get married now, do you?” Theresa says when you put it like that, what is Sheridan supposed to say but no. Luis says that it is better to go slow and let things progress. We’re not kids so no need to rush into anything. We’ll just wait till the time is right, right? Sheridan says that is what Luis said. Luis says, “Yeah but I thought felt the same way.” Theresa chimes in to tell Luis that apparently he thought wrong. Luis leans closer to Sheridan and asks her why she didn’t say anything before. Sheridan replies that she didn’t see the point because he seemed so adamant that you weren’t ready for marriage. Luis then tells her that he just figured that she wasn’t ready either. He guesses he didn’t ask her, did he? He says that he is asking her now. “Do you want to get married? Please tell me what is in your heart. I want to know.” Sheridan replies, “If you’re asking me how I feel, what I really want.” Luis says that he is. Sheridan continues, “Then, yes, I’ve always wanted to get married and have children.” Luis says, “Yeah, I want that, too, but do you want it now?” Sheridan answers, “What I want is for you not to feel pressured. You asked me a question and I answered honestly. I don’t expect anything to come of it. But if you want the truth, then, I would rather get married soon than later. (Luis swallows and looks awfully nervous.) Theresa stands behind Shuis with Ethan and Pilar and smiles the whole time Shuis are talking. She is listening to the conversation and she knows there will be a double wedding.
Luis says, “I didn’t know that you wanted to get married sooner than later. I thought that you wanted to wait.” Sheridan tells him, “Now you know. I’d like to get married before too much longer and start a family.” Much overdue but at this point, Pilar interrupts and tells everyone that this is not the right place for Luis and Sheridan to discuss such a personal matter where people are hanging on their every word. Theresa protests but agrees.

Pilar leaves to go to the Bennett have to check on Miguel. Theresa and Sheridan go to the kitchen to make coffee while Ethan and Luis stay in the living room. Their interesting conversations will be picked up tomorrow night.

In the Lo-Fitz kitchen as they prepare the coffee, Theresa tells Sheridan that she knows that Luis will propose to her. Then they will have a double wedding and they’ll be sisters. Wonderful! Sheridan was deep in thought and didn’t hear what Theresa said so she asks Sheridan if she really loves Luis. Sheridan says that she does…..so much. Theresa continues, “And you know that you want to marry him?” Sheridan answers with a dreamy smile, “Oh, absolutely. But I don’t want you to say anything to Luis that might make him feel pressured or that I am trying to force him into a bigger commitment because I am not. When Luis and I are ready to take the next step, I want it to be right for both of us.” Theresa tells Sheridan that she understands. Sheridan says, “Good because your brother doesn’t like to be rushed or coerced into anything. I would never want to do that to Luis. I know that he loves me. He has a lot on his mind right now. When the time is right, we’ll talk about marriage again. Theresa looks at Sheridan and tells her that she hears what Sheridan is saying but underneath it all, she thinks Sheridan is really nervous. Why? Sheridan looks down, then at Theresa before she replies, “Because I love Luis. I don’t want to risk losing him.” Theresa tells that she won’t. Sheridan says, “Every time I’ve had love in my life, I’ve lost it and now I’ve finally met the right man. I want to marry Luis, spend the rest of my life with him, and start a family with him. I’m certain of it. I am just so afraid we might lose our chance of getting married if we wait too long.”

In the Lo-Fitz living room, Ethan tells Luis that he guesses that he (Luis) has a lot to think about. Luis says yes, more than he ever imagined. Ethan says, “You love her, right?” to which Luis responds, “Totally, but you can’t just rush into marriage, a lifelong commitment. It’s a lot to think about.” Ethan then asks Luis if he is worried that Sheridan isn’t the right woman for him.

Back in the kitchen, Sheridan and Theresa are still talking but have moved to the table with their coffee. Theresa says that she still thinks they will have a double wedding. Sheridan puts down her spoon and says, “Well, you’d better think again. You saw the look on Luis’ face when I told him that I would be happy to get married now. He looked like a deer that didn’t see the truck until it was too late.” Theresa says that he was just shocked. Sheridan replies, “Theresa, Luis isn’t ready to get married yet.” As Sheridan got to the refrigerator for milk, Theresa thinks out loud that Luis might be more ready than she thinks. LOL!

In the living room, Ethan is telling Luis that he knows when he has found the right woman. He just has to look deep into his heart and ask if Sheridan is the one for him. Luis says that without a doubt Sheridan is the one. Ethan then tells Luis that is great because now he knows what he has to do.
Ethan goes to the kitchen to get some coffee. He talks to Sheridan about Luis. He surprises Sheridan by saying that he thinks there may be a double wedding after all. In the living room, Theresa has gone to take Luis some coffee and talk with him about Sheridan. As soon as Luis thanks Theresa for the coffee, she begins her campaign to get Luis to propose to the woman he loves. She tells Luis that he knows that he is going to marry Sheridan so why not just ask her now. Luis says that he has a lot to think about. Theresa tells him that fate brought him and Sheridan together, just go with it. She insists that he go propose to Sheridan now!

In the kitchen, Sheridan tells Ethan that Luis is not ready to marry her yet. He saw Luis’ face when the subject came up. Ethan tells her that she doesn’t know what is going on in Luis’ head because Luis doesn’t know himself. Sheridan doesn’t think that is an ideal basis for a marriage proposal. Ethan says that he used to think there was a perfect time for a proposal, but not any more. You love Luis and Luis loves you, end of story. That’s why he thinks that Theresa’s fortune will come true and there will be a double wedding this spring in Harmony if you follow your heart.

Out in the living room, Luis tells Theresa that even if he were going to propose to Sheridan, he can’t do it right now. Theresa asks him to give her one good reason why not. Luis opens his mouth to give one but Theresa hushes him and said that she said a good reason. LOL! Then she tells him that he loves Sheridan and Sheridan loves him. What more do you need? Luis looks like she has lost her marbles as he says, “You really think that I should walk into Mama’s kitchen right now and ask Sheridan to marry me?” Theresa says that she does…..with all her heart.

Back in the kitchen, Sheridan asks Ethan if he doesn’t think that he and Theresa are getting a little ahead of themselves with the double wedding scenario. Ethan says not really. You love Luis, right? Sheridan answers, “More than I’ve ever allowed myself to love anyone. If I could have one wish granted to me for the rest of my life, it would be to marry Luis.” Ethan asks, “Then, what’s the problem?” Sheridan says, “There is no problem really. I’m just being realistic. Luis has a lot on his plate right now. He’s very involved in his police work. He’s the main provider for his family, not to mention how driven he is to find out what happened to his father all those years ago. He’s just not in a position to marry anyone right now.” Ethan let’s her know that she hasn’t heard a word he said. He tells her that no one is ever in a position to get married. There will always be more reasons to wait then to take the plunge. Life is too short to always do the practical thing. When two people are meant to be together you have to seize the moment before it slips away. Sheridan smiles at Ethan and tells him that he sounds like Theresa. Ethan tells her that logic doesn’t count when it comes to romance. Luis can have all the reasons in the world but when two people are made to be together, nothing should get in the way……NOTHING.

Theresa tells Luis that he can do it. She says, “Tell Ethan to come out here to me, get down on your knees and ask Sheridan to marry you. You know you want to.” Theresa sounds like a cheerleader. She is going a great job with Luis. Luis gets up from the couch and heads to the kitchen door but stops himself when he touches the door.
