    The Most Beautiful Thing That Ever Happened To Me.

    Friday, August 05 2011
    Starr and TM have an emotional talk, Todd is angry when his loved ones doubt him, Destiny makes a choice, and John has an idea regarding the DNA test results.


    Dani and Shaun wait outside a hospital room for Destiny. Shaun is angry that Matthew is not around to help, but Dani points out it isn't his fault and she has them for support. Destiny emerges and just wants Dani to come in, but Shaun pleads for them to not keep secrets and be a part of it. She relents. Vivian wants them to understand if Destiny decides to terminate her pregnancy, it must happen immediately. Shaun becomes agitated upon hearing that Destiny would consider an abortion. Vivian sends Destiny and Dani to wait outside and hands a hyperventilating Shaun a bag to breathe into. She laughs he is the biggest baby of all. They embrace, as Shaun laments Destiny's tough road that lies ahead.



    In the hospital lobby, Destiny cries that every decision seems like the wrong one. Dani offers to go over all the options. They discuss adoption, but Destiny thinks it would be weird to watch someone else raise her baby. Destiny thinks Starr is doing a great job as a young mom, but Dani reminds her that Starr has a lot of help. Destiny sighs she knows what she has to do, but dreads telling Shaun.



    Walking through the park, Tomas tells Blair she will know who the real Todd Manning is when the DNA results come in. She tells him patience is not a virtue of hers. He isn't thrilled when she wants to go to Todd's house and hear his version of the story. Tomas brings up her kiss with TM again and thinks it meant something to her. He hopes he can break the cycle of her always gravitating back to Todd. Blair can't give him an answer until she knows the whole story.



    Todd is shocked when Jack comes home and reveals that Starr doubts he is her father. Todd asks where Tea stands, but she remains silent. She changes the subject to the DNA test. Todd knows he will pass it. Tea offers to go so he can avoid another confrontation with John. As she leaves, Blair and Tomas arrive, but Todd orders Tomas out. Blair sends Jack away, and Todd gets defensive that she doubts him.



    In his office, Viki tells John that T.M. stabbed her in the heart when he said she was the one person who could help him. She feels she has betrayed him by welcoming an imposter. John thinks the real question is how someone like her can go to bat for someone like him, no matter who he is. Viki believes his feelings about Todd are justified, given Marty's rape. However, once she learned he was her brother, she found him a kindred spirit, as both were damaged by their father. John points out she isn't a sociopath, but Viki believes he is a human being capable of love. John isn't buying it and reveals that Todd paid to cover up Jack's murder of Gigi. Viki can't ignore that, but won't turn her back on him, either. Before John gives her the DNA test results, Tea barges in and orders him not to open it. Viki pleads that they need to know the truth. Tea agrees, and John has an idea.



    In jail, Starr wants to test T.M. to prove who he is. She begins to rattle off questions, all to which he answers perfectly. She pulls out the unauthorized Todd Manning autobiography and thinks he read it and cheated. He claims he has never seen the book. Starr cries that her real dad wouldn't have stayed away from her for so long. After dropping her purse, he hands her a stuffed frog through the cell bars. She tells a shocked TM that it belongs to her daughter, Hope. She softens and explains her accidental pregnancy at sixteen, but asserts Hope is the most beautiful thing that happened to her. He cries, "There you have it, I know exactly how you feel." He then turns the subject to the lowlife who knocked her up. Hope reveals, Cole, Marty and Patrick's son, is the father. TM is shocked he has a granddaughter with Marty's son. He asks to see a picture of Hope, and Starr reluctantly shows him. He tearfully says that she has Starr's smile. He tells her, "The first time Viki put you in my arms you smiled like this, and it was the first time the sun came out." John interrupts their discussion and asks both TM and Starr to come with him.



    A terrified Tea and Viki return to Todd's, as John arrives with Starr and TM. John tells an annoyed Todd, "We're going to find out who the real Todd Manning is."


    Llanview spoilers for the next One Life to Live:

    Nate tells Dani he confessed to Bo and wonders if he'll be made to pay for hurting Matthew.

    Vivian informs Destiny she needs parental permission for the abortion.

    John reveals to everyone who the real Todd Manning is.

    The scene with TM and Star made me cry when he looked at Hope's picture.

    i forgot how annoying it was when u have a really good show and then have a cliffhanger. and u make that funny sound...................loved the show.wish it was monday already. can't wait:trevor looked and acted so...ooo nervous with jack and suddenly hostile and nervous with tea and belligerent and nervous with tomas. rh does sweet so well i go mushy.........glad he's back.missed him.cliffhangers-love and hate them but i've missed shows with them .(wouldn't it be really funny tho if rh-todd and john bond better than tsj-todd and he did? that THIS todd irritates him a lot less and is less than a sociopath?) and to everyone who lost on their 401k when stock market dipped -sorry)

    Why do we have to waite until Monday? I want TSJ to be the real Todd. Love my big baby Shaun. He is such a sweetheart. Des will keep the baby after talking to her mother/grandmother. Hey Des shouldn't you say something to Bo and Nora about having their grandchild? Shaun would love to raise the baby Des...she will keep the baby.

    how does Tomas know about the DNA tests?
    Since Tomas knows, who else knows? I don't know if I can believe the tests now. I think Dorian can tell the Todd's apart. she has always hated him so she can see who she hates the most.

    Destiny: Star lives in a big ole mansion and has the Buchanans as well as the Cramers as well as Todd's money behind her. Can't compare her life to yours. Especially since you gave your parents the middle finger months ago.

    Vicki, what does your heart tell you?

    Jack is truly Todd Manning's son. He is a budding sociopath too.

    Tomas, there is too much drama going on for you to still be trying to get into Blair's pants. But Blair, you and Todd were over long ago,so you shouldn't be this emotional.

    Tea is such a great actress. Love her.

    Wow I almost cried at the sweetness between Starr and T.M. Really??? We have to wait for Monday for the results. UGH! *******SPOILER****** It says both Todd's DNA matches the DNA found in Marty's rape kit.....interesting. I hope someone finds out who the real Todd is soon and then they can move on to either T.M. getting reaquainted with his family or finding out who he really is.

    Destiny really considering an abortions!! I see if she goes through with it she will regret her decision later. Um and doesn't she think that Bo and Nora have a right to know about this baby? Hopefully sooner than later they will find out.

    Have a great weekend everyone.

    That should read Bo and Nora might want to know not have a right to know, sorry!

    Posted by LeaveNatalone at Friday, August 05 2011 12:50 PM

    Both Todds' DNA matches the DNA found in Marty's past rape. That means second Todd is going to be one of the guys who raped Marty with old Todd. That will be why he knows so much about Todd's life. Who where the guys who raped Marty?

    Posted by Blesseddiva at Friday, August 05 2011 12:54 PM

    I don't know if Bo and Nora have a right to know. Matthew maybe, but not grandparents. It would be nice, but why tell them if she is getting an abortion? it would be painful.

    Look at Monica on GH, finding out about a grandchild that will never be part of your life.

    Besides, Nora would want to keep the baby

    Posted by Mygoodness69 at Friday, August 05 2011 12:55 PM

    All I know is I adore both TSJ & RH and I want to keep both to the bitter end.

    Todd's gang that raped Marty, one is dead and the other is in prison.

    Wow, no reaction at all from Queen Victoria about her psycho nephew killing her BFF, Gigi. Always knew her moral compass only came out when it was convenient for her.
