    Prisoner 92973.

    Tuesday, January 03 2012
    Bo and John find out who masterminded the prison break, Nora's held captive, Starr's surprised, and someone comes looking for Jessica...

    John and Bo arrive at Statesville where Mr. Evans explains over one-hundred prisoners escaped, armed. He pulls back a curtain. They were able to capture the ringleader, who's unconscious: Prisoner 92973 Mitch Laurence. His face is covered and bloodied from the bomb used in the escape. Mr. Evans leaves to get an update in order to ID those who've escaped. He returns with the names of the men from Llanview who've escaped: Cole Thornhart and Troy MacIver. Bo grabs his phone and admits Troy tried to kill Nora once.

    Nora's shocked to see Troy at the loft, who says, "I've missed you, Nora." She plays along with Troy, who claims he got out on good behavior. When she tries to call Bo, Troy pulls out a gun and orders, "Put down the phone." Troy admits he escaped. It was the only hope he had of ever seeing Nora again. She's flattered but talks about her and Bo's recent marriage. He thinks she only married Bo because he was in prison. Troy holds Nora and professes his love, claiming his brother Colin was the one who hurt her. The phone rings. Nora convinces Troy to let her answer it, so Bo doesn't become suspicious. "If Troy's there tell me you love me," Bo says from the other end of the line. "I love you, Bo," Nora replies. Troy disconnects the phone and plans to take Nora somewhere they can be together. She stalls Troy and offers him some wine and conversation. He starts kissing her neck. Nora lays on the seduction and makes a toast, "To us."

    Back at Statesville, Bo tells John that Troy has Nora.

    Natalie's terrified to see Mitch at Llanfair. Dressed in a guard's uniform, Mitch covers Natalie's mouth, halting further screams. When Mitch releases his hand, he taunts Natalie about killing Jared. Natalie shoves Mitch down and starts strangling him. She turns to run, but Mitch puts her in a headlock. He wants Jessica. Natalie would rather die than tell him where she is. He grabs her by the hair and starts to head upstairs. They hear Liam's cry through the baby monitor. Mitch thinks it's his grandson, Ryder. From the staircase, Clint calls out that Viki's taking care of the baby. When he enters the living room, Mitch pulls a gun on him. Clint makes a move for the gun. Mitch slams it down hard on Clint's back.

    Starr can't believe Cole's at the mansion. How did he get out? He explains how all hell broke loose at Statesville. The inmates were beating on the guards. It felt so good to be outside. Cole had to see Starr and Hope. Starr wants to bring Cole back to prevent further trouble. He refuses to leave, not until he sees Hope. He begs for one more chance to see her. Hope appears and calls out, "Daddy." Cole rushes to hold his daughter. Starr gives them a moment then orders Cole back to Statesville. "I'm not going back," he snaps and shows Starr a letter he received. His dad is alive and is with his mom. Patrick promised they'll be together again one day. Cole has to find his parents. He begs Starr to hide him until he can take off to find them. Out on the patio, after their kiss, Todd and Blair enter the cabana. Blair admits, "It's too soon for me." Todd claims they belong together. Why is Blair holding back? "It's you," she replies and reminds him of the good 'ups' and the horrible 'downs' of their relationship. How many times did he stomp on her heart? Blair can't go there again. Todd can't promise he'll never hurt her again. No one can make a promise like that, but Todd can promise to love her and their family. She wants to love him and promises that someday she'll be ready to throw in with him again, just not tonight. "We have so much to look forward to," Blair says and kisses his nose. They enter the house and call out to Starr. They find her and Hope and question her about the man's voice they heard. Starr covers and asks them to take Hope to bed, who calls out "Daddy." Cole hides in the shadows. They wonder what Hope's comment was about. Starr claims Hope had a dream about her daddy. After they leave, Cole thanks Starr. She brings him into the cabana and says, "Take care of yourself." Starr turns to leave, but Cole stops her. Back inside, Blair sends Todd home but invites him to kiss her goodbye. He kisses her neck and leaves.

    Troy is loony as a bird. He said he got out for good behviour. Did he forget that he was wearing his prison garbs.

    Mitch do us all a favor and get rid of Gnat.

    How dumb could that prison guard, or what ever he was be. He just assumes that man is Mitch because of the shirt he was wearing. Sounds like a conclusion Dumb(Bo) would come up with.

    Where was Viki and Clint when Gnat and Mitch were boxing down stairs? That must have been ringing in the new year with some loud love making. Gone Viki I ain't mad at ya. It's been a long time since your toes were curled up. Heck and she is still upstairs. She must be in some good sleep right about now.

    Looks like the police department needs better identification systems. I don't know why I'm feeling this today, but Cole coming back to Starr is just making me mad, I can't stand his character anymore (then again, I really couldn't stand him back in the day either).

    Only 8 episodes to go before The End.

    I liked the new Cole. If OLTL were not gone, he'd be an excellent recast, provided the writing were as good as it was today.

    Hope they turn on the lights so we can see how well Troy has held his age! LOL

    A very satisfactory episode IMHO.

    this sounds really good. Can't wait to see it. I hope Cole does go with his parents. I hate ABC is letting such a good show go and want let anyone else have it...shame on you ABC. By the way tried to look at the chew over christmas break..........boring! I guess I will have to start looking at Y&R and The Talk! Don't want to see the show they are replacing OLTL with it looked boring too! I wonder who will die? Can't wait to see my girl Natalie choking Mitch! Keep that loon away from the kids Natalie! McPain in the A$$ is going to kick your A$$ for messing with his girl and son! Saw in previews Sam's crazy mother is tring to him and Todd is stopping her! This should be interesting!

    I was off work over the Christmas holidays and decided to watch Las Vegas rather than go anywhere Near The Spew. And what's really bad is they always run their closing credits into OLTL's time so you're forced to watch for at least a few seconds. Not me!! I've gotten Really, Really good at knowing when the flip over. Maybe this time they'll actually kill Mitch Laurence. He outlived his usefulness when he tried to rape his own daughter.

    cowboys you know that you have been putting your OLTL and GH comments in the Passions board. Pages 15-22 are from you..were you tipsy when you have been writing your posts. Anyways fromthestart and AMC Lifer from the AMC board would like you and others that watched AMC to go comment on the AMC board as they would like to hear from you again.

    I just can't wait to see Allison Perkins and this whole statesville storyline could have happened sooner if they did not waste so much time on the Rex/Gigi crap.Also wouldn't it make for a great plot line if Irene Manning was at one of her hideouts holding Victor there, and she was the one behind the whole Blackout.For the show should have had her on front and center all these months.I could totally see that Irene could have Allison doing everything for her with Mitch believing he was controling her and everything else but in reality Irene was the one in charge.

    I was disappointed in todays show. Todd and Blair were a bore and I was looking forward to Cole back but just could not get used to him so yes Starr get him some clothes and money and help him leave to be with his parents. There that is the end of him.
    Troy and action there.
    Only excitment was Mitch..yeah a real evil person but the only part of the show worth watching. Kinda liked Natalie not knowing what to do.
    Hope tomorrow's show is better.
