One Life To Live Weekly Blog
Thanksgiving in Llanview.
It looks as though the holiday will mark the start of a lot of fences being mended. Natalie took the first step in apologizing to Jessica, so here's hoping the sisters can move forward now that they both have a little more stability in their lives. From Jessica visiting Brody to Roxy bringing Shane for a visit, the scenes were both heart wrenching and celebratory. Matthew narrating the episode was sweet, but my heart broke for Bo and Nora, who have now lost their son.
Eeny, meeny, miny, moe, who killed Victor, we don't know.
Tomas thinks Todd did the deed. Todd thinks Tomas pulled the trigger. One of my blog posters, "JerrysGirl1964," made a good point and said, "There is much more to Todd's story than we know yet. I think Todd really does have D.I.D. and after his years in captivity with the torture, he is more fragmented than ever. His conversations with Irene prove that he is not thinking clearly." With Viki as a sister and Jessica his niece, it wouldn't be surprising if Todd inherited the disease as well. If this is the case, nine out of ten, it's possible those still grieving Victor could forgive Todd if he did kill him.
Funniest lines of the week:
Alex to Cutter: "Someone should've taught you some manners." Cutter to Alex: "She walked out on me."
Alex in regards to Rex: "If it wasn't for him, I'd be Mrs. Bo Buchanan or something close enough."
Goodbye "One Life To Live."
Sadly, while I was recapping today's show it was released that Prospect Park Has Suspended Online Migration of All My Children And One Life to Live. I am truly crushed by this news and numb. I know Prospect Park gave it their all, and I respect their efforts in trying to give life to our beloved soap operas after ABC threw in the towel. Let's join together, as fans, and support each other and those who brought Llanview into our homes and hearts for so many years. No aspect of Llanview will ever be forgotten.
Join us on Twitter @soapoperafan, and Facebook. Come tweet and Facebook with us about "One Life To Live," all the other soap operas, "Dirty Soap," "Glee," "Grey’s Anatomy," "Vampire Diaries" and "Venice The Series!"
Have a wonderful holiday. I'll see you back here next Friday for another week's worth of my "One Life In A Week."

Welcome to Amy’s “One Life in a Week” for November 21- 25:
It was a short week in Llanview with many rallying around for the holidays in hopes of mending fences, making new beginnings and aiming toward getting what they want no matter what. Let’s take a look.
Losing yet another child and his mother.
Earlier spoilers implied that Brody would go off the rails in a huge way. Props to Ron Carlivati for creating, maybe even rewriting, such an emotional scene, one that didn’t have Brody doing something even more desperate than kidnapping Liam. John and Natalie’s sense of understanding, along with Brody’s heartfelt goodbye to Liam, contributed toward a possible redemption for this once loved character. Facebook friend “Shirlene W.” admitted, “I kind of feel bad for Brody. That guy has gotten such a raw deal.” Yes, Brody has lost three children now, as well as three women – if you count Gigi. For that he gets sympathy, but to go to the extremes he has… Brody’s in charge of his own actions and could’ve handled things a lot differently. Nevertheless, Mark Lawson’s scene was definitely Emmy worthy. Now the question remains, where do John and Natalie go from here? Soaps.com poster “GeneRandolf” stated, “I’ve replayed the scenes of Natalie and John working together in the office researching Brody’s steps in the kidnapping of their son, Liam, several times. The secretive smiles they gave each other were so telling of how truly these two belong together.” You won’t get any argument here. It’s been a longtime coming for John and Natalie to discover the truth and reunite. Let’s just hope it’s a bit more exciting than the last time they gave it another go-round. It’s safe to say “Jumps” doesn’t think it will be, “I am so over Natalie and John. Are they going to talk their relationship to death now?” Another poster, “Ladyhell,” agreed and stated, “I absolutely hate John and Natalie together. John is supposed to be this super smart detective but being with Natalie just makes him stupid. At the end of the day she is still a lying, cheating witch. If I were Jessica or John I wouldn’t be able to stand to even look at her.” Vote where you think John and Natalie should go from here.
Cutter wasn’t kidding when he vowed to standby his childhood promise to himself, to kill Alex if he ever laid eyes on her again. Good thing ‘Stacy’ was there to prevent him from having to dispose of another dead body.
