    Like A Field of Poppies In Llanview!

    Friday, May 08 2009
    Tea, Todd and Blair find themselves pulled into Powell's plans, Marty finds herself in danger, and Lola goes to Dorian with the goods on Langston and Markko...

    At Todd’s, after Blair, Tea and Todd open their invitations to the KAD Spring Fling, Blair passes out! As Todd screams for Tea to call 911, Tea passes out too, and Todd does as well – before any of them can get to a phone!

    When Rebecca locks John in Powell’s cell, at the Sitwell Institute, he finds an invitation for the KAD Spring Fling and demands answers from Rebecca, who’s peering in through the window!

    Back at the motel, Marty looks at the invitation then answers a call from John. As she’s trying to explain what she found, Marty starts feeling strange and says that she needs some air. Just as she reaches the door handle, John screams for her not to unlock the door, but it’s too late – Marty opens the door, passes out then a man walks in and hangs up the phone!

    After the phone goes dead on John’s end, John starts to appear dizzy, and Rebecca informs him that the invitations have been chemically tainted – and that he will soon become immobile! John grabs his gun, takes aim, but Rebecca calls for help – then some orderlies rush in and restrain John, who Rebecca blames for attacking Powell, who is now in the infirmary. She then announces that John McBain is wanted for murder! As Rebecca walks away, John screams, “You witch!” As John is put in a straitjacket, he is able to get an orderly to listen to him, and he begs him to call the Llanview PD and let the commissioner know that he’s there!

    Still in the motel, when Marty opens her eyes, she sees Powell standing over her! Powell calls Todd, who is able to press a button on his phone – and Powell laughs. “Hey, Todd, did you get my invite?” Powell tells Todd that there’s no need to RSVP to his invitation then says, “I’ll see you at the Spring Fling!” Later, after Powell has gotten Marty to the bed, Rebecca arrives to let Powell know that everything is going as planned then Powell holds her and says, “We’re finally going to have it all.” Powell and Rebecca then gather Marty up and leave the room!

    Back at Todd’s, Jack comes downstairs and sees Todd, Tea and Blair passed out on the floor!

    During gym, just as Matthew apologizes to Destiny for the way he treated her, Justin appears and starts calling him names. Over talk of prom, Justin taunts Matthew with not having a date, as well as bashes Destiny, saying no one would ever take her, causing Matthew to defend Destiny – and Destiny to claim that she has a prom date, who isn’t Matthew! After Justin and Becca leave, Matthew asks Destiny to the prom, but she still claims that she has another date. Matthew then decides not to go to prom then tells her, “Have fun tonight.” Once Matthew is gone, Destiny calls someone and demands that he take her to prom!

    Out in the hall, as Langston talks to Markko about preparations for their night ‘after prom’, Lola listens from around the corner then approaches them with sarcasm, leaving Langston to tell Markko, “She’s up to something!”

    Starr and Cole arrive at the Buchanan mansion. Though Cole is reluctant to face Bo, they ring the bell…

    Inside the Buchanan mansion, Bo picks up on Nora’s nervousness, as she prepares to head to work, then suggests that they stop avoiding each other and talk. Suddenly, Cole and Starr are at the door, wanting to see Bo. As Cole faces Bo, for the first time, Bo admits that he has been avoiding him too – for fear of what he’d do to Cole! Though Bo is angry with Cole, Cole apologizes for what he’s done then promises to try to live a different kind of life. “I’m clean right now, and I’m working really hard to stay that way,” Cole says then asks for a favor. “A favor?” Nora asks. “From us?” Cole and Starr explain the situation with Hope then ask if they can help them get Hope’s body exhumed. Bo agrees to help, and appears to accept Cole’s apology, then Cole and Starr go to leave – but Nora asks for a word alone with Cole.

    Alone, Nora sincerely tells Cole that it took a lot of guts to come there today, and she hopes that his recovery goes well. As Cole worries about his mom, Nora assures him that John will protect her – because John would need to be tied down and knocked out before he let anything happen to Marty! Though Nora can’t forgive Cole just yet, she apologizes for his pain. As Cole goes to leave, he comes face to face with Matthew! Back in the living room, Nora agrees with Bo – that they need to talk.

    Lola arrives home, as Dorian is finishing up a phone message to Blair, then acts as though everyone hates her. Dorian assures Lola that since her ploy didn’t work, no one hates her then decides to give her a second chance – for Ray’s sake – to become part of her family! Lola starts whining about feeling like a little girl and admits that she’s not ready for a guy like Markko. Lola then talks about how Markko is pressuring Langston then says, “I heard them talking about something called Operation Deflower.” Lola appears innocent, and acts as though she has no idea what that means, then spills about how Markko and Langston are planning to get a room after prom – and about buying condoms!

    Langston and Starr arrive home in the foyer, and as Langston tells Starr that she and Markko are going to go all the way tonight, Dorian enters and says over her dead body!

    Next on One Life to Live:

    After Cole sees Matthew, he's tempted to take a pill!

    Powell and Rebecca continue with their plan.

    Langston and Dorian have it out.

    Rebecca and Powell had a good plot to be two mental patients. Meaning Powell literally and Rebecca a mental case in the head but running free.

    I was glad that Lola told Dorian. Condoms are not full proof. Don't want her to end up like Starr.

    How is it that nobody can notice someone dragging a drugged out woman around.

    Lola had no right to tell Dorian about what Markko and Langston were planning to do, I mean they love each other. . .and Lola wants a guy she can't have, lol. I hope Dorian figures out what Ms. Montez is really up to, I also want to figure out about Cole and Starr wanting answers if their daughter died or not. and she will not end up like Starr, cuz she will be careful. Langston and Markko are a really cute couple and it upsets me that Lola would do just about anything to break them up.

    I would also like to see Cole & Starr and Matthew & Destiny as a couple. Shaun is right she does have a crush on Matt, I can see it in her eyes. . .she just doesn't show it.

    Todd is amazing even passed out!!!

    Things sure are getting very interesting in Llanview.

    Thank god no Stacy, Rex and Gigi today, that s/l is driving me mad.

    Nice to see Cole clean. Thought the day would never come. Hopefully they will keep him that way.

    Hopefully they will keep John in that straightjacket for a long long while. Give him time to reflect on all the laws he's broken.

    As I stated, condoms are not full proof. They can break.

    Posted by cowboys fan at Friday, May 08 2009 12:52 PM

    I'm sure it's tons of people out there who were careful and ended up pregnant anyway.

    Well, well, well . . . All the loonies are out running free!
    Hopefully Starr and Cole will get closure on their child. Hope things blow up in Lola's face. Also I hope things work out well for Matthew and Destiny. How insensitive can Becca and her crew of stuck-yps be??
    Great day because there was no Stacy to make me gag!!
    Happy posting everybody. Where's gulla??

    Thank GOD, no Stacy today...which leaves John for me to FF thru. Matthew/Destiny's friendship is refreshing. Justin/Becca are losers.

    Posted by dallasgirl0708 at Friday, May 08 2009 01:10 PM

    Yeah, Matthew doesn't deserve a loser like Becca. . .Destiny does cuz she was honest with him and doesn't do anything behind his back. I know they can break, everyone knows that but some people are still careful these days and that still doesn't give Lola the right to snitch, she just wants Markko to herself which she won't get.

    Posted by dallasgirl0708 at Friday, May 08 2009 01:12 PM

    well, janjan03. . .I hope things will blow up in Lola's face, Langston/Markko doesn't deserve this. *Spoiler Alert* - - After Lola confesses to her dad and Dorian, Ray will sent her to boarding school in Colombia.
