We are posting some old articles to fill the gap of the missing episodes of Loving and the pages of the Soap Opera Digest () with some summary of the plot.
Interview with Elizabeth from Soap Opera Digest (January 17, 1995)

Will Dinah Lee (Elizabeth Mitchell) ever forgive Curtis for causing the plane crash? Mitchell responds: “She almost does, because she’s more angry at herself. I think she blames herself for leading Curtis astray. I think she’s blocking out [what happened], and I think she’ll continue to block.”
Soap Opera Digest (February 7, 1995)
The discovery that the body in Trisha’s grave is not Trisha effectively ends Trucker and Dinah Lee’s plan to live happily ever after on Loving.
Says Elizabeth Mitchell (Dinah Lee), “The first thing she thinks is, ‘it’s over, I’ve lost him again.’ Dinah Lee loves Trucker in the way where she wants him to be as happy as he possibly can. She’s upset that this is making him unhappy. She can’t pretend things are OK, because they’re not. Her heart is broken. Every day a little something more gets her upset.”
Trucker is torn. He loves Dinah Lee, but feels the need to search for Trisha. Dinah Lee overhears Alex and Trucker talking about Alex searching for Trisha, and she cancels the wedding. Trucker’s response is to take Dinah Lee to a justice of the peace anyway, vowing that they will marry tonight. “He just picks her up and carries her out,” laughs Mitchell.
Unfortunately, Alex and Ava arrive and tell the couple they can’t marry until Trisha is declared legally dead. Mitchell says, “I don’t think Dinah Lee really wanted to do it, anyway. She’s watching Trucker go through all this denial [about the possibility that Trisha is alive]. I don’t think she’s happy about anything, and she wasn’t really looking forward to it.”
Complicating matters is Christopher (Trucker and Trisha’s son), who, this week, asks Dinah Lee if he can call her “Mom.” “She says, ‘Why don’t you just call me Dinah Lee?'” says Mitchell.
Trucker hits the road by week’s end, but he’s bound to be surprised by Dina Lee’s request.
