Amy’s One Life in a Week!
Tess plans for her secret room! (Soaps.com)
Welcome back for another edition of Amy’s “One Life in a Week!”
It’s been an exciting week in Llanview and with a lot of the characters starting out in the past this week – literally – it was nice having some ‘past’ come back to Llanview! I loved seeing Cord return and watched with emotion as Tina hashed out their love of a lifetime, only for Cord to decide that they had their one, two, three, etc., chance – without another in sight! I, personally, would welcome a Cord and Tina reunion!
Remember that old phrase ‘You don’t know what you got till it’s gone’? Seeing Rex and Gigi finally realize just how much they love and need each other has made the fight to reunite that much better! Okay, I have fully climbed aboard the 1968 bandwagon, am enjoying the way the storyline is playing out (maybe because I now have everyone’s past names in check) and can’t wait to see how it all turns out – especially with Rex stuck in 1968 and Gigi on the hunt to find him! I also thought that Adriana sending Gigi Rex’s DNA was her way of letting Rex go – and I commend her for that. However, I don’t see what difference it’s going to make if Brody gets rid of Rex’s toothbrush or not. In the end, all Gigi has to do is tell Rex the truth, who will submit to a DNA test if that’s what he wants…
I’ve always been a fan of Bo and Nora as a couple and haven’t really warmed up to her being with Clint. However, now that Dallas is back in town, I must say seeing Nora’s claws come out is rather enjoyable to watch – especially since Lindsay isn’t there to keep her feisty side peaked!
Two weeks ago I talked about the possibility that Todd is falling for Marty. Could it be that the feelings are mutual? Is Marty falling for Todd as well? While I was a little taken back by Todd’s motives and lack of information he’s given Marty about her past, I know when the truth eventually comes out it’ll make for a more complex storyline. Aren’t they always when feelings are involved? I say, “Game on!”
Just when I thought Blair and John had put a halt to their ‘extra curricular’ activities, the sexual tension just keeps getting more evident every time they’re around each other! Loving it!
Starr and Cole are literally breaking my heart. However, the veracity of teenage pregnancy is very real in this day and age and I think it’s so important for everyone to see all of the emotion that surrounds the issue. I’ll be eagerly watching this young couple to see how their feelings start to change once Starr is further along in the pregnancy.
At first, when Todd handed Starr that voodoo doll of Cole, I was like, “Did he really think that would help win back her trust?” However, seeing the sincerity in his attempt to break though to Starr and try to get her to change her decision about keeping the baby, I think maybe there is still hope that this father and daughter can overcome the darkness in their relationship.
My favorite storyline right now revolves around Tess. Okay, I'll admit the whole D.I.D storyline has been played out over the years, but it still works! And to see her take a few pages from Viki's book is classic! Telling Leo that 'this room' she wants built is kind of like a theater room and saying, "This room is going to provide me with hours of entertainment," Natalie and Jared should be scared! However, my only problem with this storyline is that you'd think someone would notice that Jessica is acting a little out of her norm, even while still grieving for Nash, but totally in Tess fashion…
And the funniest quote, or rather conversation, of the week has to go to Roxy and John! After seeing Blair come out of his room a few nights before, Roxy presented John with some fresh towels and said, "I thought you might be needing these… you little devil you!" John's reply about the threesome he and Blair had with a mysterious woman, and how he'll never look at his handcuffs and shoulder holster the same way again, had Roxy practically undressing right there in the heat of the moment! Way to get Roxy off your back, John!
Before I close this week's column, I'm curious to know how many of you think the filming of the scenes are too dark? I'm not sure if it's just my local channel or if it's all the 'dark' storylines as of late that are making things appear this way. Good thing for the color control setting on my TV capture card because dark or not, I couldn't imagine One Life to Live not being a part of my daily routine!
As always, thanks for stopping by for Amy's "One Life in a Week!" Be sure to jot down your comments below to let me know your personal views on Llanview last week!
