Full detailed profile on Blair Cramer Manning Played by Kassie DePaiva on One Life To Live Daytime Soap Opera.
As the lights flicker throughout Llanview…
At the mansion, Blair shows Todd the painting Tomas painted of her that Tea sent over. She throws it. Why would Tea think she'd ever want anything that Tomas touched? Blair whines about being gullible with men. Todd reminds her of the strong woman she used to be. 'She' wasn't a victim. Blair trashes the painting and asks Todd to spend New Year's with her. Downstairs, James shows Starr the "Jailbait" video. It went viral. Starr admits she allowed Rick to release the video in exchange for him dropping the lawsuit. How can Starr work with Rick after he blackmailed his brother? Starr defends Rick. James warns her not to trust him. Though they had plans, Starr wants to stay behind with Hope, who was afraid when the lights flickered. James thinks she's using Hope to get out of their date. Starr doesn't use her daughter and sends James away. He returns soon after and apologizes. James doesn't want to be the guy who holds her back. If Rick can get her to the V.I.P. section then he's all for it. They kiss. Later, Todd joins Blair on the patio, dressed in a tux. She lights a candle, writes 'Trusting the wrong man' on a piece of paper then burns it - like it never happened. Todd writes, 'Killing Victor, framing Tomas' then burns it. He feels better and leans in for a New Year's kiss… Blair kisses him back.
Todd brings Blair to the mansion. He thinks Neela was following orders from Rex and vows revenge. Blair suggests they help Tea build a case for their son. Todd wonders when Tea and Blair became so close. Blair reflects and urges Todd to cut Tea some slack. Later, alone, Todd thinks back to recent confrontations with Tea then whispers, "Tea knows I killed Victor." He recalls the time Tea's spending with John and thinks he knows too. Todd throws a glass dish. Blair rejoins him and listens as Todd claims his upset is due to Jack. He's beyond repair. Blair snaps, "Jack needs a father who believes in him!" Todd apologizes and wishes he could make Jack love him. "You stand behind Jack," Blair says. "And I'll stand behind you." Just as Todd says he wants Tea fired, Tea appears with Jack and questions his motives. Blair minimizes Todd's words. Tea shares that Gigi's alive. Todd notes, "He's not a murderer." Tea whispers, "It makes one of you."
In his office, John tells Tea Shane asked Neela to help him prove Jack had gotten away with murder and says, "Apparently, he was right." Out in the station, Todd tells Blair someone set Jack up and vows not to let them get away with it. "What're you going to do, Todd? Kill them? You would, wouldn't you?" Tea says from John's doorway. Todd questions if Tea thinks he killed someone. John stops Tea from elaborating. Tea admits that Neela set Jack up and says, "Jack could be in big trouble." He could be facing a murder charge. Blair defends Jack. He didn't mean to hurt anyone and shouldn't pay with his life. "Like Gigi Morasco did?" John asks. Tea sends Todd and Blair home and insists on talking to Jack alone. When Jack's brought in, John gives Tea some time alone with her client in his office. She promises to do everything to help him. Jack feels stupid for trusting Neela. As Tea warns Jack not to say a word about Neela, Shane barges in to surprise John. Gigi appears. Jack and Tea are the ones surprised.
Rama finds Neela crying in Angels Square. She fears Jack will never trust or speak to her again. Rama thinks that's a good thing, seeing how Jack could be facing many years in prison. Neela blames herself. Shane's stupid plan ruined everything! "If that woman hadn't died I wouldn't be in this mess," Neela snaps. Todd and Blair appear. "If it isn't Llanview PD's newest little helper," Todd says and lashes out over what Neela did. Rama takes Neela away.
Blair visits Jack in jail. He's afraid and wonders what's going to happen to him. Now that Victor's dead, Jack thinks Brad ratted him out. Blair notes this is the first time Jack's admitted he caused Gigi's death. She screams at Jack for his lack of remorse and how he's treated Todd. "The only time you show interest in me is when I'm in trouble," Jack snaps, claiming Victor was the only one who knew and cared about him. "I was always one kid too many for you." Blair loves all of her kids equally. Jack has a good family and has no idea what it's like to grow up alone, like Blair did. Before Blair leaves, Jack admits what happened to Gigi was an accident. He never meant for anyone to get hurt.
In John's office, Todd demands John let Jack go. Tea appears and listens to Jack's taped confessed. Todd demands to know who set his son up. John refuses him. When Blair appears, Todd leaves. Blair hears Jack's confession. Tea admits if the tape checks out, Jack's in big trouble. Tea promises to help Jack and comforts Blair, who's still hurting from Jack's words. Later, alone, John admits to Tea that Neela set Jack up.
Back in Llanview, at the mansion, Sam rushes off to check for Santa on the roof. Starr comforts Blair over losing Tomas and suggests he's not the man Blair's supposed to end up with. Blair wonders if she thinks Todd is. Jack and Todd arrive with gifts. Starr and Blair are surprised to hear Jack invited Todd. Starr takes a call from Dani then talks to Jack about Neela. Sam reappears. Does Todd know where Santa is? He showed up last year.
At the Manning Estate, Tea urges John to go be with Natalie and to not put off making things right. Time is precious. After John leaves, Dani joins Tea, who urges Dani to be careful about getting too close to Todd. He has a habit of hurting the people he's closest to. They hear caroling and find Blair, Starr, Jack, and Sam outside. After a toast to Victor, Sam begs Blair to bring him home to see Santa. Jack promises Santa will show up, as Dani slips Starr a gift for Todd. Later, Dani finds gifts that Victor left for them. Tea reads a note from Victor, claiming if she's reading this, he's gone but will never stop loving her.
When Sam, Blair, Jack and Starr return to the mansion, they see Santa by the tree. Later, Todd joins them. Blair privately thanks him for making Sam's night then Starr gives Todd Dani's gift. Just as Jack calls Neela to thank her for being there for him, John appears and places Jack under arrest for Gigi's murder.
