One Life To Live history:
The show returned last week on April 29. Back on that same date in 2008 Antonio Vega was tempted to steal money from a drug dealer during a bust that Lee Ramsey set up. Why would one of Llanview's best cops even contemplate such an act? Lee knew Antonio took a few stacks of money from the evidence bag and believed it was so Antonio could care for Jamie. However, it was all a ruse. Antonio was working with John McBain and Talia Sahid in order to bust Lee for the crooked cop he was.
