One Life To Live Weekly Blog
Dorian gets her paybacks. (Soaps.com)
Welcome to Amy’s “One Life in a Week” for April 18 – 22:
After last week’s news, the show’s cancellation is still fresh in our minds. However, I’ve chosen to enjoy the ride as long as Llanview is still being brought into our homes. With that being said, I refuse to allow anyone to ruin my love of this show. On with my thoughts…
You don’t have to hide anymore.
Ford trying to comfort Tess brought me right back to the days of Tess and Nash. I love Tess’ feisty, devious and flirtatious side but have always enjoyed when that little bit of vulnerability comes through. In regards to men, she’s only really shown it to Nash and now Ford. If Tess stays in control for a bit longer, I wouldn’t mind a little serious action taking place between her and Ford.
That’s Niki Smith to you, bitch!
Tess opened up a whopper of a mental can of whoopass when she lured her mommy dearest, Niki Smith, out. It’s been a while since we’ve seen Niki. She’ll surely give us a bit more excitement than Viki has of late. Not that I blame Viki… Her life has gone down the tubes, and she could use a little R&R. Niki is sure to screw things up for someone along the way, but it’ll be fun to watch.
Buchanan rules don’t apply.
In Bo and Nora’s position, I side with Clint on this one. I’m not sure I could turn my son in for killing Eddie. Matthew’s right. Eddie was a human being all the same, but in this case it would be best to let dead dogs lie, if you will. On the other hand, if Matthew can’t live with what he did, he should be the one to turn himself in and face the crime. Really, it’s neither here nor there when you think about it. I’m sure Nora would be able to get Matthew off in the end anyway. I’ve had enough of the whodunit storyline, so let’s wrap it up. It’s not as though we have all the time in the world…
Please cancel the show.
“Access Llanview” that is. I was all for the added drama within the drama, but here again… If they’re taking away our soap, let’s not waste time with these unnecessary touches. We no longer have the luxury of enjoying scenes outside of the box.
Payback is a bitch.
There was no lack of using the B word in dialogue this week. Dr. Dorian Lord Vickers had Clint right where she wanted him and finally got the goods on Echo. I hope Dorian hightails the goods to Charlie and blows Echo out of the water. Surely this news will also be the end of her relationship with Rex. Can't say Echo didn't have it coming…
I am who I am because of you.
It's about time Rex and Gigi decided to tie the knot and make it official. It's been a long time coming.
Keep your enemies close.
Like mother, like daughter. Checkmate! Starr cornering Deanna into moving into the mansion was brilliant. I liked that she was honest with James as to her reasoning for doing so. Didn't I say just a few weeks ago that Starr was bound to relate Deanna to Hannah? Then there's Blair… Even though she plans to date Tomas to gain information about his past, Blair probably won't be able to get past his charm, especially since he rescued Jack from those thugs. Speaking of which, who do you think hired those goons to rough Jack up? Clint's the obvious choice, but I'm hoping a little Buchanan came out in Rex and he had the warning passed along to Jack physically. Let me know what you think through my Poll: Jack Gets A Warning. However, considering Jack's a kid, it wasn't the right thing to do on so many levels.
Tomas 'Classified' Delgado.
If we go with the obvious here, it would appear Tomas is in the mob or a hitman. I'm leaning more toward a high-powered, secret position in law enforcement. Why else would the file on his prints come up classified? I'm just not sure where Current Todd and Old Todd fit into this whole mess just yet.
Liam Asa McBain.
No big surprise here. I've suspected Liam was John's from the get go. Either commit crazy Marty or send her off to Never-Never Land. I don't care which. I just want her gone. She's a perfect example of more time wasted on things I don't care about.
Have a wonderful holiday! I'll see you back here next Friday for another week's worth of Amy's "One Life In A Week."
