    Introducing Mr. J!

    Friday, January 09 2009
    A new teacher arrives in Llanview, Marty gives John a warning, Cole faces temptation, and Nora makes a shocking discovery...

    When the new teacher appears in class, Langston comments on how hot he is, leaving Markko irritated - and Starr staring at the new faculty member! After Mr. J announces that he plans to take a more hands-on approach in his class, in regards to human biology, Starr makes a joke to Langston - and Mr. J confronts her to ask what she knows about reproduction and conception! When Markko interrupts with an answer, Mr. J thanks him but says that 'the young lady' needs to know the basics if she plans to pass the class. "I had a baby," Starr blurts out. "And she died!" The teacher quickly apologizes then carries on with the class, leaving Starr in a daze.

    Still in the hallway, after Asher offers Cole a joint, Cole replies, "Thanks, but that's not going to do it for me," leaving Asher to say, "Then I'll get you something stronger," and Cole can't argue that he needs something to take the edge off! Suddenly, Matthew approaches them. After Asher leaves, Matthew tries to talk to Cole about his experience with having a mother who lost her memory. Back to school talk, Matthew gushes about the older popular kids then asks Cole to take him to a rave sometime. Cole gives Matthew a warning, "Who you hang out with doesn't make you cool. It's who you are." Matthew thanks him then takes off with some friends to meet 'the girls'.

    After class, Mr. J asks Starr to stay behind and again apologizes. When he says that no one even gave him an attendance sheet, he asks what her name is, to which Starr replies, "Starr Manning," then says if he knew she was in this class he would've never taken the job! "The J stands for Joplin. Dr. Joplin was my mother," he says.

    Out in the hallway, Markko and Langston joke about their new teacher. Down the hall, Asher approaches Cole, letting him know that his friend will be able to get Cole the drugs! After Cole joins Langston and Markko, they inform him about their new teacher - and about how Starr is in the room with him now!

    While Blair continues to talk to Todd at his estate, someone from outside videotapes them! As Blair talks about how much she sees Todd in the kids, Todd moves in closer - and Blair assures him that there's still a good man inside of him, even though he needs to pay for the things he's done! Bringing up how he was going to steal Starr's baby, Blair warns, "And she may never forgive you for that." Before Blair leaves, she hands Todd a picture of them and their kids and asks him to remember the man he was!

    Just as Blair opens the door to leave, Tea appears outside and asks, "What're you doing here?" Blair and Tea throw a few barbs before Blair goes, leaving Tea watching as Todd stares at the photo that Blair left! Getting down to business, Tea asks about Todd's plan to kidnap Starr's baby - and Todd tells her everything! "I knew Starr would regret giving this child to Marcie," Todd says. "So I decided to take it." Todd gives Tea the same excuse he gave Starr but fills Tea in on how he was going to steal the baby - and Janet's part in it! However, Todd also talks about how he changed his mind at the last minute. When Tea asks who all knew about the plan, Todd says, "Starr's doctor," but Tea reminds him not to worry about her - because she killed herself - and Todd replies, "That's not my fault!" Talk turns to Janet, and Todd assures Tea that he paid her to go far, far away! Once Todd tells Tea how he blackmailed Dr. Joplin, Tea warns that she needs to find Janet before anyone else does - or else he's screwed!

    When John sees Marty in Wes's room, he asks Wes, "Who the hell are you, and what'd you do to her?" Although Wes tells John to take a hike, John pushes his way through the door - but Marty refuses to leave with him! After Marty and John bicker some more about Todd, John warns Wes, "Hurt her in any way and I'll kill you!" Wes doesn't back down and listens as Marty explains that John was a cop - as well as her lover! Bringing up Cole, Marty snaps about her memory loss then says, "He'd be better off believing I was still dead!" John assures Marty that Cole just wants his mom back, reminds her that she can find him 'right down the hall' then leaves.

    When John arrives back in his room, Blair is waiting for him. "I just saw Marty," John says, to which Blair hands John a beer and replies, "I just saw Todd."

    Wes leaves for work and allows Marty to stay behind. Marty takes out a photo of her and John, remembering what John once told her - not to let Todd hurt her any further!

    Nora calls Antonio and Talia to the diner, to ask for help in Todd's case, to which Antonio refuses, adamantly, of Nora's urge to question Tess! Nora assures him that Viki already denied her access to Jessica then they talk about Todd wanting to steal Starr's baby - and how they can prove it! Outside the diner, someone videotapes Nora, Talia and Antonio, as they discuss locating Janet! Nora fills them in on all of Janet's aliases, and how she used to be a prostitute - and how Renee was her Madame, and they're sure she knew about Todd's baby stealing plot! Before Nora leaves, she implores them to locate Janet ASAP!

    Later, when Matthew arrives home, someone watches him from the bushes! Once inside, Matthew briefly talks to Renee then answers a phone call - but no one replies from the other end. Back outside, someone with a gloved hand ends a call and closes their cell phone!

    When Nora comes home, Matthew gets a call from 'Becca' then rushes to his room to take the call in private. As Nora is moving Matthew's backpack, the contents spill - and she finds a joint!

    Back out in the foyer, the doorbell rings then the door slowly opens. After someone pulls Renee outside, they reveal themselves to be Janet - who asks for Renee's help!

    Antonio and Talia arrive back at the station and get a tip on Janet!

    Next on One Life to Live:

    Nora calls Bo!

    Many are on the lookout for Janet!

    Cole finds himself going down the wrong path.

    Viki is there for Todd.

    OMG! Even now, after everything that has happened, Todd still does NOT respect Starr's choice to give up her baby. Yep, that is being a supportive father! What a jerk!

    Posted by luvinitall at Friday, January 09 2009 12:55 PM

    jumps, do you really not see where todd is coming from? i love marcie and understand the things that she did, but from todd's perspective, she kidnapped his son and then his daughter was going to give her child to him. it's a complicated situation and everyone involved should have sympathy, not criticism.

    as far as today's show, i haven't seen it yet but cannot wait til soapnet tonight. i loved scott clifton of GH and am sure that he will do just as good of a job on OLTL.

    I feel sad for Todd as he only did what he thought was right. I sure hope Tea can get to that nurse.

    I'm trying to think of who that could be taping Todd and Blair and then Todd and Tea. At first I thought it might be Janet but I don't think so now.

    TipsyTess - Are you actually saying that Todd thought it would be RIGHT to put Starr through the agony she's experiencing right now?! (Thinking her baby is dead)

    Posted by loveOLTL at Friday, January 09 2009 02:21 PM

    What Todd let Starr beleived that her baby was death was wrong, but giving away a child to the woman who already have a nistory a kidnapping your brother, hoiding gun to your aunt when she had heart problem were more wrong.

    The different is Todd was come around and changed his mind, but stupid brat Starr didn't do anything for Cole's sake for the last 9 months. What a Jerk she was!

    Don't let me have needle around me; otherewise I will sew Nora's BIG mouth off.

    Again, today she ran around like a ego miniac. No wonder Marty and her could be friend. Both of them are neglecting on their sons. No suprise both of their son turn to use drug. What a motheres of the NEW year!

    Posted by loveOLTL at Friday, January 09 2009 02:27 PM

    Oh, I am not forget about Blair. What the point she rescue Todd, lectured him 'don' do that again' and told him tell the judge what Starr had been told. The end she still wanted him to be put in prision; why don't let him do it in the first place. What a hypocrite of Blair! This woman needs a critical thinking class to clear her cloudiness head!
