Nice assets, boys! (Soaps.com)

Welcome to Amy’s “One Life in a Week” for June 28 – July 2:

This week in Llanview was full of excitement including confessions, favors, some great eye-candy and one hell of a storyline shocker! Lets take a look…

Calling In A Favor, Manning Style.
It looks like we finally got somewhere this week where Dani and Todd are concerned. Some call her a hypocrite for only going to Todd when she needed help but I call it reaching out. If Dani could’ve went to anyone else she would have. She knew Todd had the means to get the money and act fast in order to save Nate. However, did Todd go about it the wrong way? Take a moment to vote in my Todd’s Way of Handling Situations Poll to let me know your thoughts. I personally like it when Todd takes charge and goes after what he wants. It’s one of the reasons Todd fans like him. Could you imagine Todd calmly awaiting word from John on the situation? Not! It still remains to be seen if everyone will come out of this unscathed. However, the writers have hit their mark on how they are handling this estranged father/daughter duo… Todd’s giving in a little yet being stern toward Dani while trying to win her heart. And how about James kissing Starr? Hot! I don’t know about you but I’m all for a James/Starr hookup! Next week is going to be filled with excitement inside that abandoned barn. I can promise you that! Hannah’s been arrested so that should hold us off until Tuesday, since the show is airing an encore episode on Monday due to the holiday.

Work and Play.
Natalie and John have decided to try their hand at working together again. I can respect Natalie’s need to get back into the crime scene, if you will, but I’m not sure working alongside John is going to be good for their relationship. It didn’t work in the past but here’s hoping things are different this time around. I did get a kick out of John asking where his kiss was at the station before Natalie left. That’s something John never would have made a point of doing in the past.
