    More than meets the eye? (TOLN/Hulu)
    Welcome to Amy's "One Life in a Week" for August 19:

    Never have two episodes been filled with so much drama! Mysterious connections were revealed, true intentions were made apparent, and one of Llanview's most well-known villains proved to be a big force in deciding what comes next. Let's break down the season finale…

    Cutter and Nikki's business.
    Other than working at the same club, and having a few rolls in the hay, it's clear that there's more behind Cutter and Nikki's relationship. Nikki stated, "Just remember, we have business to take care of." To which Cutter replied, "Exactly, and this can't come between it." Warning signs and memories of his past scores with Aubrey Wentworth/Kristine Karr point to a bigger score. This time toward a female Buchanan, namely Natalie verses Joey, as was the pre-reboot case. And much like the case with Aubrey falling for Joey, it looks as though Cutter has fallen for Natalie too. If my assessment is true, and Cutter and Nikki are trying to scam Natalie out of millions, the tables have turned on Cutter, making Nikki his loose end whereas he was once Aubrey's.

    Not a summer school drop-out.
    It's safe to say, considering Jack and Kate are still having sex, that Jack passed his summer school class with flying colors. While Jack's infatuation with his teacher is understandable, the ongoing risky, illegal affair should have Kate running for the next school district. She became nervous about losing her job, should the truth come out, yet she had her most recent sex with Jack on her desk in the very same school that could put her behind bars for participating in such an act. Since the storyline didn't come to a conclusion before season one ended, I'm hoping Kate gets a job, or has one already lined up, as a regular teacher so the character is forced to face her actions. Whether it's legally or through her conscience, this storyline would be best served as more than just a summer fling for Jack.


    Natalie's horror! (TOLN/Hulu)
    Allison Perkins strikes again.
    Throughout season one the writers have paid homage to certain characters and storylines and have tied them in with the reboot. Leaving viewers hanging with Allison holding the syringe over Clint, as Natalie screamed in horror, was another instance where they did this. The ABC finale had Allison holding Victor hostage, and now we will all have to eagerly wait to learn Clint's fate and what Allison decides to do with Natalie. Can't wait!

    Dani officially has a sugar daddy.
    The scene where Dani and Arturo threw caution to the wind and gave into their passion would have been extremely hot if only I could get past the huge age difference, much like scenes with Jack and Kate. Tea garnered my sympathy when she had to watch Dani leave the gala with Arturo. Her hands were tied, as Dani is legally an adult now, but as a parent, that's the hardest pill to swallow.

    Biggest season finale annoyance.
    Season one of "One Life To Live" rated an overall A in my soap book. However, the storyline surrounding mysterious Michelle fell flat. For a character who appeared as much as she did, and could have proven to be a big asset in the form of a stalker or the child of someone who was after the Buchanans, leaving us with more lame questions about her past didn't do this storyline any justice. Matthew once again picked up on discrepancies through stories she's told of her home life. Instead of leaving us annoyed by Michelle's secrecy the writers should have at least shown a private moment to give us a hint at who Michelle really is and what she's after.

    Cutter and Nikki aren't scamming Natalie, Amy! When Nikki said they had "business to take care of" she meant their working relationship at Shelter (or the drug ring at Shelter)! And what about Cutter's shady dealings with the drug and call girl ring at Shelter? Nikki is even a drug user!

    I agree. I do not think Cutter and Nikki are scamming Natalie. I mean if they were, why blow it by telling Natalie she and Cutter have been having sex?

    Jack and his teacher are just BORING BORING BORING!

    Dani and Arturo are creepy, yet hot at the same time. Weird, I know!

    So excited that Corbin Bleu joined the cast!!! Been looking for something to see him in regularly ever since High School Musical ended. I also loved seeing him in the Godspell musical and I can't wait to see him in The Monkey's Paw! If you guys haven't seen the trailer check it out here: www.monkeyspawthemovie.com/.

    I love Corbin so far as Jeffrey King and am very excited to see him in upcoming seasons! Love you Corbin!

    Loving this new season. It seems like the producers/show runners made the right decision in hiring a new writing staff. The writing seems much sharper than it did before. Also, I can't tell you how much I love Corbin Bleu and I'm so excited that he's joined the cast. It's refreshing to have him here among all these veterans, and so far he's been killing it.

    I've also heard Corbin's great in Dancing with the Stars and I've heard he's great in The Monkey's Paw (monkeyspawthemovie.com/). I'm a huge fan of his and I'm looking forward to seeing more of him in OLTL.
