Reva Bend

Reva lived quite a few different places in Springfield over the years. My favorite though is Reva Bend. It was a pretty cottage in a bend of the river. The name was a pun (Reva Bend/River Bend). I’m a sucker for puns. Reva was living there when she had Marah. Reva Bend was later Holly Thorpe Reade’s house. It was outside of this house where Danny gave Michelle his first present (that creepy photo meant to intimidate her).

I think the river was Springfield River. I don’t remember it having a different name, although during the Carrie Curthers storyline, they mention there are 5 bridges that cross the river in and nearby Springfield (such as the one Reva jumped off of when she tried to commit suicide over Josh). It is presented as a fairly rural location and is a drive, not a walk from the Marler Carriage House. However, there must be enough traffic that Michelle didn’t realize Danny’s car was following hers before the present exchange I described above. The house is two stories and there are at least 2 bedrooms because there was both a room for Jeva and a separate nursery for Marah when they lived there. The house has a patio that is covered by a porch roof, but it’s flat to the ground with no railing. There are many bushes and trees planted close around the house making it an ideal spot for lurking, like in Elizabeth Keifer’s first scene as Blake when she spied on Ross and Holly there or during the Nursery Rhyme Stalker storyline. Once Holly moved in we mainly saw the great room downstairs which was part living room/part kitchen with a large table that did double duty for kitchen table and dining room.

UPDATED December 1, 2015: I added the signature block. I need to redo this with video links.
