    The Killer Strikes Again!

    Friday, April 17 2009
    John makes a shocking discovery, Roxy wants Gigi to expose Stacy, and Starr and Cole want answers about Hope's death...

    Wanting to clear John as soon as possible, just as Bo explains what's going on with Fish and Talia, the mayor appears, ranting about John being the killer! Though Fish defends John, Bo leads the mayor away - and Talia warns Fish not to tip John off, for John's own good! Nora and Bo back John up, but the mayor orders Talia and Fish to arrest John now! After the mayor leaves, Bo, Nora, Talia and Fish discuss John not having any motive - and Nora says that he wasn't even near Zach's room. Forced to tell the truth, Talia explains that John was in Zach's room when the break-in was reported. Bo and Nora lash out at Talia and Fish as they explain how John has been investigating the murders, unofficially, then Bo demands that they find John and bring him in! "Somebody is setting John up," Bo says.

    John arrives home to the mansion and finds Marty waiting for him, who admits that she did remember Zach - and explains how all of the memories of the rape came rushing back. Over talk of Zach, John confides that he doesn't think he's the killer, and Marty knows John will find out who is. "I hope so," John says. "Before whoever is does it again."

    Outside, someone peers through the bushes and stares at John and Marty through the window… As John and Marty make their way out onto the patio, Marty brings up Starr's involvement with Schuyler then they both hear something from the bushes! John orders Marty to go inside and lock the doors!

    When Fish and Talia arrive at the mansion, Fish goes to the front door, and Talia goes around back. Suddenly, someone appears in front of Talia! As she says, "What are you doing…" the person attacks her! Shortly after, while Fish talks to Marty at the front door, John finds blood on the patio, sees someone in the pool then pulls a dead Talia out of the water!

    At Hope's gravesite, Starr and Cole make plans to find out why their baby died, as Starr talks about Chloe's christening. "I held her, and it made me think about how things were before we lost Hope. I wish I could just go backward," Starr confesses, and Cole admits he feels the same way. Starr feels that the only way to let Hope go is to find out why she died then says, "Then maybe there would be hope for us." After they both agree to be there for each other, Cole and Starr make a vow not to let anyone else know that they are looking for the truth.

    In an examine room, Michael checks on Stacy, who later calls Roxy at the special care facility and tells her and Kyle to hurry up already! Just then, Rex appears in her room - and Stacy wonders how much of her conversation he heard! After Rex says he didn't hear anything, Stacy talks about how the procedure is hard - but says that she'd do anything for Shane. Though Rex doesn't condone what Stacy's done in the past, he doesn't know how he's going to repay her - and Stacy says, "You'll think of something. I'd do anything for you… and Shane." Just then, Schuyler appears, and Stacy starts making excuses when Schuyler says that Stacy lives with him - and that they are ex's. Feeling uncomfortable, Schuyler leaves. Over talk of Gigi, Stacy bashes her sister for what she's done to Rex.

    Back at the special care facility, as Roxy watches Kyle taking the samples from Rex's father, a nurse calls from the other side of the curtain, and Roxy goes to buy Kyle some more time! However, when the nurse starts to push past her, Kyle emerges and claims he's Roxy's nephew, who is an intern, but the nurse goes in to check her patient. Finding nothing out of the ordinary, she comments on his normal condition, that he doesn't have any brain activity," then leaves. Having gotten what they came for, Roxy and Kyle leave with the samples.

    When Marcie goes to see Shane, she tries to cheer him up by talking about Paris, Texas. As Marcie talks about Shane having a donor, and two parents who are back together again, Gigi breaks down and rushes out of the room. Once alone, Shane confides in Marcie that there's something bad going on with his mom and dad.

    Marcie goes to find Gigi, who admits that she and Rex broke up - and that she slept with Brody. Marcie doesn't buy it, and just as she presses Gigi to fix things with Rex, Schuyler appears, introducing himself then says he just left Stacy's room - she was in there with Shane's father.

    Kyle and Roxy arrive back at the hospital, and as Roxy goes into Shane's room, Schuyler makes a joke to Kyle about holding his lunch - in reference to the cooler he's holding! Back out in the hallway, Kyle gives Roxy the samples then she orders him to page a certain number in a few minutes.

    As Gigi walks into Stacy's room, Rex is thanking Stacy again - and holding her hand! Once Rex takes his hand away, Gigi says that all that matters is that Shane gets better. Suddenly, Michael appears, ready to take Stacy's samples, in order to start the transplant! As Stacy acts as though she's feeling sick, Roxy barges in, tells Rex and Gigi that Shane needs him then switches the blood samples after Michael goes to take a page! With Rex's father's blood now switched in place of Stacy's, Michael reappears and takes the blood for the transplant! As Stacy is hiding her samples, Schuyler enters and asks, "What was that?"

    In his room, with Gigi and Rex, Shane begins the bone marrow transplant.

    Not wanting Shane to see her upset, Gigi steps out in the hallway, and Roxy reminds her that after the transplant is over, she can expose Stacy - because not Stacy, or anyone, can take the bone marrow back!

    At the special care facility, the brain wave machines hooked up to Rex's father start to show activity!

    Next on One Life to Live:

    The mayor wants John charged with attempted murder.

    Rex's father begins stirring to life!

    It's not looking too good for John. Now he will be caught with Tea's dead body.

    This is my opinion only and not a spoiler alert - I think Fish is the killer. Who else would Talia let that close to her without drawing her gun on them? IMO it was between Fish and the lab tech Kyle but since Kyle was with Roxy getting the bone marrow sample that leaves Fish. He also had the opportunity to leave the knife in Zach's room when John called the police about the break in and he and Talia (the only two cops in LLanview) came on the scene.

    I don't think its fish or kyle because the killer was in the bushes at LA Boulaie watching john and marty, before fish and talia got there and kyle was with roxy. whoever this person is its going to a shocker I cant wait lol:)

    I just started watching One Life To Live again, and it's the same old thing dragging storylines out. Please get on with the climax as to who is the serial killer.

    Please stop making Todd to be a bad father, if Todd is branded as a bad father, then Blair should be branded as a bad mother. Give to kids to Addie, she seems to be the one with the most sense.

    Posted by zphib_96 at Friday, April 17 2009 01:35 PM

    Boy, Marty has some balls, doesn't she? Waiting for John where BLAIR lives?? I gotta give her some credit, looks like she's going to "creep" up on John using the angle of "solving the serial killer" as her means by which.

    It's obvious she's catching feelings for John; the way she looks at him, the way she hugged him TIGHTLY when he came downstairs from Todd's and now, being at BLAIR'S HOME waiting on him.

    She could've called him on the cell to tell him about her "rememberance" but instead, she waits at the house to tell him in person.

    Marty, you slickster you...

    Sorry, but Todd is a bad father and Blair is a bad mother. There aren't really very many examples of good parents on these shows. It's funny when we agree that the person with the most sense to raise the kids is the one who spent most of her life in a psychiactric facility! Of course, having spent the last weekend with my cousin's 3 kids, I could see how spending your life around crazy people would be good preparation for child rearing! LOL

    Very interesting, Talia's dead. All the past murders / attempted murders were tied to Marty and Todd - mostly people Todd had a grudge against. Talia would also fall in that list as she's tried to nail Todd for his crimes many times. So Todd has the motive, but John's looking like the one with the opportunity (being seen at / connected to the crime scenes). I wonder where this is going. I don't think that the killer necessarily had to be someone that Talia knew very well, but just someone that she recognized who she didn't consider to be any kind of threat.

    Granny50:I so agree with you about Todd.Theyr'e are many parents in llanview who made worse mistakes then he has.and have thier kids.Like Dorian. Dorian just won a poll on another site for best villian from all the soaps ,Todd didn't get to the semifinals.but right now he in the for best hero. he wasn't on oltl's ballad he became a write in canadate ,he beat John who came in fourth out oltl charcators Todd hes in the finally againist Zach AMC& Patrick GH, and hes representing oltl for best looking male in the semifinals. Todd&Tea won the best should be couple ,OLTL DIDN'T MAKE IT TO THE SEMI FINALS FOR WORST SOAP. ***A VERY GOOD THING! OF COURSE TODD HELPED WITH THAT! LOSS ,LOL!****I haven't a clue who the killer is today.I still want to know who was vedio taping Todd. it wasn't Zach. maybe it was the mayor,if he was in Todd's pocket as Bo thinks,he would have helped Todd with Ramsay ,but he didn't,he knew all along Ramsay had Marty.
