Welcome to Amy’s
“One Life in a Week!” (January 26 – 30)
Do the week’s fly by for you, as they do for me? Can’t believe it is Friday again, but thanks so much for making a pit stop to the One Life to Live News Room at Soaps.com for my weekly thoughts! Let’s get on with the show – and what a week’s worth of episodes they were!
Todd gets a shot at Janet’s goods then escapes jail time – but lands himself back in court!
“If there’s anyone else who knows about your little plot, you are sunk!” Tea warned Todd after she halted him from being arrested for attempted rape – again… He’s back! It was so nice to see the depression leave Todd’s being and have the old Todd back – filled with confidence and a warning not to cross him! However, what Tea did by going to Starr for the sole purpose to make her feeling guilty about her father’s suicide attempt, tears or not, they were fake and she was wrong!
With Tea back in the mix of things, in and out of the courtroom, I found an old, old video clip of another time Tea was in court – defending Antonio Vega! Look carefully because you’ll also see a ‘blast from the past character’ – and the original actor who played Cristian Vega, Yorlin Madera!
Lola relives her childhood nightmare then falls into her cousin’s boyfriend’s arms!
“Then I woke up again… I went to their door, that’s when I saw my father on his knees beside my mother’s body,” Lola confessed to Tea… Well, it’s about time we found out how Lola’s mother was murdered! I feel for Lola, and her confusion, and I hope Tea can get to the bottom of her mother’s murder, but… I can’t help wonder if Lola is falling for her cousin’s man, Markko. If she is, this would definitely add a bit more drama to the already stressful situations at Llanview High!
Schuyler hands out some homework and some advice!
"They're only going to get help if they want help," Schuyler told Starr in regards to 'her friend' who is doing drugs… This storyline just keeps getting better and better for me. However, I think the intense connection between Starr and Schuyler is going to get these characters in trouble. Not because they'll fall in love or anything, I don't see that happening mutually, but I'm still wondering if his past drug addiction was ever made public knowledge? Will the school find out and fire Schuyler, would that send him back into the depths of drugs? There are so many angles that the show can spin from this - and so many storylines surrounding it! Bravo One Life!
Cole puts the smack down on Wes then Wes reveals a secret!
"So you're the guy who's been using my mom?" Cole screamed at Wes before laying the smack down on him… Cole is breaking my heart. It's as simple as that. This character has gone through so much in his young life, and Brandon Buddy is doing a fabulous job at playing the part… from his acting, body language, facial expressions, he has it all down to a tee! This storyline surrounding Wes just keeps getting more interesting to me as well - especially that he's been revealed to have known Janet! With Janet now found dead, in Todd's presence, there are too many suspects lurking around Llanview to have Todd be the real killer... This will be yet another storyline twist that I'll look forward to being thrown into the already impressive mix! Please be sure to leave me your murder suspect below! I'm curious to hear who you think killed her!
Moe wins the Cramer Lotto and Llanview spits out some more monks!
"Moe!" Dorian screamed. "I want you to take all of my stuff. I beg of you…" I don't know what you think, but what started out as a funny storyline is getting a tad out of hand. I mean, who's going to turn into a monk next? Viki? Jessica? Carlotta? Maybe Rex? No, Rex is too smart to go down the 'yellow robed road', which leads me to my funniest quote of the week! "Namaste, Rex," David said when Rex approached him and Dorian at the diner, to which Rex replied, "Will I stay? I don't mind if I do!" I'm patiently listening through the chants and namastes, but come on everyone, let's get on with the show!
Natalie can't get over the declaration of death by Jessica!
"I hope that witch stays in St. Ann's for the rest of her life," Natalie said to Rex… Until I see this sisterly friction pan out a bit more, there's only one thing I have to say, "Glad to see you back, Natalie!"
Thanks again for stopping by to share my thoughts! Given all of the excitement going on, I want to know what your favorite storyline is at the moment. Please place you vote in my new poll below! If you missed out on my Teenagers Poll, you can still Vote Here!
