Can Natalie move on from John? (TOLN/Hulu)

Welcome to Amy’s “One Life in a Week” for May 21 and 23:

It was a very short week with only two days in Llanview, but at least we still have our soap. Victor was MIA, Todd was secretly watching his family, and Rama seems to be getting the most non-action in town. Let’s break it down…

The secret tattoo.
Props for getting Tea out of the nursery and back into law, even if the love of her life is at the center of an investigation. Tea’s gone through hell this past year, so it’s nice to see her as a strong woman trying to help not only fight for Victor but search for answers surrounding what’s behind the secret tattoo. There are other people clearly at the helm warning Todd to finish what he started, as the tattooed note stated. Someone wants Victor dead, and adding that to Todd’s resentment toward his brother can only mean he’s the one expected to carry out the hit. Having Todd monitor the goings-on with his family is a sure way to allow fans to believe he’s doing just that while the actor’s new character is off causing issues for Port Charles residents. Good visual element. However, with Jack left stewing without Victor’s lack of presence in his life it’s safe to say we’re going to see him act out more like his two father figures have done in the past, which isn’t good for anyone.

Loaning services to save The Banner.
We saw a bit of the old Clint resurface when he overstepped in Viki’s bid to save her cherished family business. He may be offering Buchanan Enterprises money to help her save the newspaper, but Clint’s never been one to sit back and allow others to disperse and use company funds at their leisure. Viki is getting a clear picture of this, which is causing major tension and could very well halt a future wedding for this once super couple of Daytime.
