Are there any OLTL fans here? I noticed so many other soaps mentioned but not this one. I started watching this show when i started college, it happened to be on during my lunch break, and now 14 years later I am still watching it.

who do you all think is the Killing Club Murderer? I think it is Marcie's ex-Agent

Wow, good guess ... but was he around when she was writing the book?

My question is, how on earth did Jessica become a multiple? I thought it was never genetic ... and I have no memory of her being abused as a kid in any way ... I have been watching from the Joe Riley days, so watched her grow up!

No the Agent was not around when MArcie wrote the book. But he probably has read it. And when he was fired he was P.Oed!!!

I don't think Jessica had anything happen as a kid. Does D.I.D. only come if you have a child-hood trauma? This is a soap so she could have stubbed a toe and got it :).

She has had some Trauma in her life. Losing her baby, Then all she went through with her Father Mitch. Then what happened with Tico..being stabbed and all.

I think her alter has come out because Jessica was tired of being the victim, and relying on others to protect her.

Vicki's other daughter Megan had D.I.D. as well

I love the show and have been watching for years. I am really not caring for the Jessica alter ego thing. I would really like to see John and Natilie together.

I agree ... too many reruns ... nobody can top Vicki/Nicki ... maybe they are trying to get us to care for this Jessica? I like the old one!

I also wish Christian had died ... will be the doom of John and Natalie, who I want to be together too!

Dorian has been vintage these days!

Carey, OLTL Reach Contract Agreement

biocarey9bi.jpg

Talk of Phil Carey's (Asa Buchanan) exit from One Life to Live has been greatly exaggerated. Though unconfirmed by the network at "post time," Soap Opera Central has learned that Carey and the show have come to terms on a new contract.

Because of the ongoing contract talks, Carey's character was temporarily removed from all scenes taping after February 24th. This led to reports that Carey was out -- and that he wasn't coming back. But this wasn't the first time that the proverbial fork had been put in Carey's long career by some media outlets. News of Carey's possible exit first emerged around the first of the year when the actor revealed that he had not yet been approached by anyone to re-sign his contract. When Carey and network execs were unable to reach an immediate deal, ABC reportedly approached Carey with a plan to have him remain with the show on a recurring basis.

"Phil Carey is an extremely valuable member of One Life to Live, and we sincerely hope we can come to an agreement with him," said an ABC spokesperson while negotiations were ongoing.

The terms of Carey's deal were not released, however, long-time One Life to Live fans should be pleased that the 25-year veteran isn't going anywhere.

Carey will return to the screen in May.

Isn't the murderer Daniel Colson ...a.k.a.  Theodore? 

At least that's the impression I'm getting from this show.

He is one of them ... he murdered Kelly's brother, the baby snatcher ....

They seem to be setting Jessica's alter up for the other murder (car accident), but OLTL always gives us an obvious one before getting to the real one! :wink:

I think the Jessica being the killer was squashed last week when They showed the hands of the Killer, with the pictures of the two kids they killed. THen showed Jessica with her mom and sis.

Rumor has it that Melissa Archer (Natalie) isnt going to resign her contract....She wants outs for other projects and ABC has already said the John-nat-vangie storyline will go on with or without her. Sad really that we wait all this time for John-nat and when we finally get them it may be a newbie.

I have been watching this show since the whole Jenny- Marco baby stealing storyline and I hate to say it but I think its now at one of its lowest points ever in terms of quality of storyline. Aside from Todd and Blair and John/Nat, the only two couples I like Dorian/David and RJ/Lindsey dont seem to get much air time. They have the talent but they just dont seem to know how to use them very well. Kevin is hot, but Kevin and Kelly seem to have the same conversations over and over and over again, Dorian has been rewritten from a strong, conniving woman into some henpecker from hell, Duke is dull and bringing in some new chick thats unrelated to every other character as a foil between him and Adrianna is so been there done that, and dont even get me started on marcie "I am the moral majority" walsh and michael "please forget I am really AL" mcbain. And BO+NORA part III = BORA!! I wanted to see Lindsey shove Nora out the window when she came over to offer her sympathies. HELLO Nora, Lindsey hates you and you just yelled at her that she was a crappy mom, and now you think she wants to cry on your shoulder?? If she is that stupid, its no wonder she hasnt caught on to Daniel.

Lets send Ranster over to ABC and he can rewrite the scripts for us!! What do you say Ranster :?: :wink:

That is something I would love to do ... this is my last daytime soap ... I gave up GH when Laura left, and finally lost my AMC addiction ...

I have been watching this one since Victor Lord (the original) died ... I think this show is slowly fading too ... sure there is a lot going on, but not much with any substance ... I want ASA to liven things up again ... I will never forget the party he had when he was marrying Samantha and Olympia was hiding in the house ... took over a week for one hour to tick by ... and I was on the edge of my seat ... or the days of Karen and Jenny ...

This show needs something !

I hear Carlo is coming back -- now if they would only bring back Alex and Cassie Callison sigh what am I talking about -- they wont write anything good for them anyway.

From what I see posted on other sites, the head of ABC basically thinks incidents are more important than specific actors. Which is why they pay no attention to the character history AT ALL, dont use the vets very much, and recycle the story lines so they dont have to think of anything creative.

now to have Alex back would be a dream!

as for Cassie ... they played her out in my opinion ... and I want the old Dorian back too!

I actually think that Margaret's Baby is not Todd's and is Asa's :wink:

I still like Cassie with Kevin -- Laura Kauffman is gorgeous and talented and would be able to hold her own with David Gauthier. I know everyone raves about Heather Tom but I dont get the hype. She's okay in the role I guess but she doesnt hold a candle to Gina Togliani (sp?). Heather's Kelly is boring to me especially with Kevin. They are bringing on Paul Satterfield to play David's brother and as a spoiler between Kevin and Kelly. Sorry but i could care less about that triangle.

I hope they bring on someone hot for Rex. He is way underused. Loved the scenes with Bo and Rex at the gay bar. You could see how uncomfortable Bo was (not surprising since Clint was a homophobe) but Rex was just playing it up for all it was worth. :rofl

Melissa Archer of ABC's 'One Life to Live' has re-signed with the show she has been with since 2001. Her character Natalie Buchanan is the off-spring of a tentpole couple of the series, Vicky and Clint.

ABC Soaps In Depth is reporting that Forbes March will portray the role of Nash, a man who will pose a threat to Jessica Buchanan (Bree Williamson) and her alter, Tess. The role has been in casting for several months now and several names including Austin Peck and Dax Griffin were being considered for the role. March is well known for his role as Scott Chandler which he portrayed from 1999 to 2000. Look for this contract role to start airing in late June to early July.

In addittion, another young male has been casted. Josh Casaubon has been cast in the recurring role of Hugh Hughes. Hugh will be the new assistant district attorney and will be involved in Marcie's storyline. Hugh first hits the screen in June. Sources say the role should eventually become contract if everything works out.

FROM TV GUIDE: Soap Scoop

Friday, May 20, 2005

As David prepares for his date with "One Perfect Rose," a beaming Dorian informs Kelly she's about to meet the "King of Hearts." Nora is perplexed when Natalie insists she can't allow her to take Matthew home. Bo and Rex find themselves in a gay bar in New York City as they close in on their killer. Meanwhile, in their corner booth, Mark encourages his nervous lover to relax and enjoy the chance to just be himself for a change. Missing her own daughter, Lindsay thanks R.J. for letting her tuck Jamie in. David tells Viki about venturing into the world of Internet matchmaking. Blair suggests to Todd that he owes Kevin a debt of gratitude for drawing them closer. Natalie tells Nora why the person who murdered Paul was almost certainly also responsible for Jen's death. Though R.J. encourages her to stay with him, Lindsay decides to go home and start dealing with her grief. Natalie brings a dejected Matthew to Llanfair for safekeeping. Across town, Nora asks R.J. for some help figuring out what's going on with her husband. Dorian and David are startled to realize that they each answered the other's personal ad. Todd reminds Blair he still intends to make Margaret and Asa pay for what they've done. Mark convinces Daniel to spend the night with him in a nearby hotel. Kevin apologizes for doubting Kelly. Bo worries that Nora's world will be shattered once he collars Daniel at the swearing-in. Asa puts his new plan into action.

SPOILER ALERT:

Just as Daniel is about to be sworn in as lieutenant governor, Bo busts him for the murders of Paul Cramer and Jennifer Rappaport. (As Mitch Laurence was fond of quoting from the Bible: "How the mighty are brought low!") Nora's world is rocked as she and the rest of Llanview learn of Daniel's sexual orientation

Thanks Salter for the update on Melissa Archer. I wasnt feeling positive at all that she would resign after the producer told soap Opera Digest that the show would go on with or without her. ABC treats their talent like dog pooh so i figured they would give her the shaft.

Bring on Jolie (John +Natalie)

Okay%20I%20had%20to%20rant%20--%20I%20am%20mad.%20%20" target="_blank">

I know this is from a site on general hospital but is goes to the heart of how ABC treats its talent. The actors (at least the non-minority characters) are usually taken care of but the actresses, especially those over 40 are treated basically like crap. We have seen this with OLTL just recently when they dropped Catherine Hickland to recurring. How long have we waited to see RJ have a real love interest -- and please dont tell me his two week fling with Evangeline or his two week rekindling thing with Keri's mom somehow count. Lindsey and RJ have spark -- something this show desperately needs and Catherine Hickland is arguably one of the best actresses on daytime. But does ABC care, hell no RJ is black, Lindsey is over 40 whats to care about. Does ABC even understand what there audience wants??

Now on GH, they are going to play out a story that goes to the core of GH's history -- BJ's heart. The BJ's heart story line was one of the most famous storylines in the history of the show - it went on for months, had major ramifications for almost every character on the canvas, and won the show numerous awards. Two long term characters, Bobbie and Tony Jones, lost their young daughter in a sudden way. Three other long term characters, Felicia, step-father Mac and bio father (and Tony's brother) Frisco were facing the impending death of their young daughter to heart failure. The daughter, Maxie, had been played for years by the same young actress so the audience was really attached to her (like OLTL viewers watched Erin Torpey grow up on the show) Eventually, Tony and Bobbie made the decision to donate BJ's heart to Maxie and Maxie ultimately lived. The last scene before the donation was Tony with his head lying on the chest of his brain dead daughter listening to her heart beat one last time. For years after, we watched Tony and Bobbie mourn BJ and even commemorate the date of her death and we watched young Maxie struggle with the idea that her beloved cousin had to die so that she could live.

Now GH is preparing a storyline where Maxie starts to have medical problems with BJ's heart. But they are telling the story with a recast Maxie (they JUST dumped the original actress), a recast Felicia (they had the original Felicia on recurring but refused to give her a contract), no Frisco (Jack Wagner is now at CBS where they treat their talent with RESPECT), and no Tony, who was was basically let go years ago. Why TPTB at ABC are going to tell the story this way, with actors no one cares about it, is beyond me.

Yes, recasts are a necessary evil but to throw all these new faces in a major story right away when the ORIGINAL ACTRESSES ARE AVAILABLE is beyond me.

This is why I was surprised that they were able to work things out with Melissa Archer.

Okay I had to rant -- I am mad.

Monday, May 23, 2005

Daniel is perturbed to learn that Mark plans on attending his swearing-in ceremony. Nora explains to R.J. why she doesn't want to even deal with Bo until after her husband has officially become lieutenant governor.

Meanwhile, Matthew asks Bo why he has to stay with his Aunt Viki.

Antonio urges Jessica to let him help with her recovery. Pennsylvania's attorney general accuses Bo and John of waging a vendetta against Daniel. At Jen's grave, Rex tells Lindsay to expect an arrest soon in her daughter's murder. Mark happily informs an appalled Marcie that everything is about to change for him and his lover. John collars the runaway coroner, who sheepishly admits how he falsified his autopsy report on orders from the district attorney. Jessica again elects not to confide in Antonio or Viki for fear of complicating their already turbulent lives. Riley is puzzled by Mark's interest in Daniel's career. Meanwhile, Kevin wishes his successor luck but cautions the governor's new right hand man to bury his skeletons deep before they rise up and bury him. Antonio and R.J. learn that the judge is ready to hand down a decision concerning Jamie's custody. Hoping to protect his ex from a public humiliation, Bo leaves numerous urgent messages for Nora.

Tuesday, May 24, 2005

Jessica lends a nervous Antonio her moral support as they await the judge's decision. Blair gives Todd the green light to rub Asa out if he can't be brought to justice any other way. As the swearing-in ceremony begins, Riley overhears Mark boasting to Marcie that he'll soon be a fixture at the mansion in Harrisburg. Meanwhile, the Attorney General finishes reviewing all the evidence and gives Bo an arrest warrant for Daniel. Renee grows melancholy pining for Asa. John and Bo agree to quietly collar their suspect without making a scene but arrive to find the ceremony already underway. Antonio is outraged when the judge rules to give Jamie to R.J. for another six months before permanent custody is established. Dorian warns Blair she won't let her throw her life away for someone as worthless as Todd. Duke spots Renee being dragged into a car. Though Evangeline tries to cover for her client's angry outburst, the judge orders that Antonio's visits with Jamie be supervised since he cannot seem to control his temper. Duke trails Renee and her abductors to the airport and slips aboard their private jet. Bo interrupts the swearing-in and is forced to arrest Daniel in front of a stunned Nora and a large crowd of onlookers.

Wednesday, May 25, 2005

Jessica tries to console a gloomy Antonio as he bemoans the judge's latest ruling. Blair panics when she spots Starr talking with a woman in the park. Nora and Riley both sputter in protest as Bo places Daniel under arrest for the murders of Jen and Paul. Blair begins shoving "Margaret" until Starr hastens to point out that the lady with whom she's been chatting is their neighbor. Watching the televised swearing-in ceremony dissolve into utter chaos, Kelly is stunned to hear that her brother's killer has been caught. When Nora angrily insists that Bo divulge what possible motive her husband could have for bumping Paul off, the police commissioner reluctantly explains how Daniel was being blackmailed because he was having an affair. Dr. Spencer Truman arrives in Llanview and checks into a suite at the Palace Hotel. Grateful for Jessica's comforting embrace, Antonio responds with a passionate kiss. Kelly confides to Kevin that she's glad Paul is dead. A frightened Blair rushes Jack to the ER after the boy suddenly stops breathing. Bo is forced to reveal to Nora and the others that Daniel's lover is a man. Antonio and Jessica make love. Nora's world shatters when Mark pipes up to announce that he and Daniel have been sleeping together for months.

Thursday, May 26, 2005

Spencer implores a frightened Blair to let him perform an emergency tracheotomy on her dying son. Mark's announcement sends shock waves through the crowd at City Hall and the wider audience watching on TV.

Todd races to the hospital after receiving an urgent message about Jack.

As Rex comforts a stunned Lindsay, John reads Daniel his rights and leads the prisoner away. Dorian pesters an aggravated Viki to help her separate Blair from her unsuitable husband. At the carriage house, David sheepishly admits to an amused Kelly how he and Dorian accidentally found each other on the Internet. Spencer's fast thinking saves Jack's life. Bo escorts a shell-shocked Nora away from the salivating members of the press. Michael has to intervene after a seething Riley attacks Mark. Relieved to see Jack on the mend, Starr and Blair thank Spencer for his timely assistance. Viki feigns an interest in David to spark Dorian's jealousy and push her towards a reconciliation. Nora comes to the precinct house to face her husband. A jubilant Dorian and David are reunited at last.
