One Life to Life is pulling out all the stops in their final two weeks of airshows starting tomorrow where we pick up from Friday’s episode, in which the entire town of Llanview goes dark and there is a prison break at Statesville Prison! And with that said, it paves the way for several of the inmates and famous characters of the past to return to wreak havoc on several of the most popular characters on the canvas!

In this week’s ABC promo for One Life to Live, fans can see that Troy McGiver, Alison Perkins, Mitch Laurence, Hannah O’Connor have all run amok and are out for revenge on their mortal enemies!

But there is more to this story! After watching the powerful and dramatic promo after the jump, who’s arm is outstretched in the hospital bed?  Who do you think Starr is talking about when she says, “What if he dies?”  Let us know your thoughts!

    I hope it’s Todd! Couldn’t stand him before, still can’t stand him now! What a waste of time bringing him back!

    Wow, how heartless are you? You don’t even deserve to watch. Roger Howarth is one of the best actors on the show.

    lipstickcat replied

    I wouldn’t be so quick to defend someone who left OLTL & only came back because ATWT was cancelled! Trevor was a 100% better Todd!

    Debbyscats replied

    It’s someone connected to Starr and Blair or why would they be upset? My money is on Todd.

    that will be nice ,I cant stand him either, every time he is on ,he makes my skin crawl, but why would star seem concerned about him? I really have no guesses on who it is yet,I hope its not cole or todd.maybe its one of those ford brothers no one likes.well, I for sure will be tuned in to find out.I still cannot believe we have only 9 days left to watch this show.time seems to be going quickly now ,I wish we had more time,or hear good news that one life to live will continue.

    This is so very heart breaking knowing that this series is coming to an end. Especially after watching some of the older episodes from the soapnet marathon on Sunday. The look in Erika Slezak’s eyes at the end of the wild west episode when as Ginny she saw Viki walk in on her wedding to Clint was just incredible. Without saying a word you could see what was going on in her mind. I am going to miss Ms. Slezak, I hope she continues to act.

    It will probably be Todd…and he’ll make a death-bed confession that he’s the one that killed Victor.

    I am thinking the same thing…..

    barbara t replied

    no todd cant die and I dont think he killed victor.It has to be someone else.how sad 8 more days .

    Torrey replied

    Although, it could also be Jack….

    Reply

    Debbyscats replied

    Never thought of Jack but it would make sense since who ever gets it is close to Starr and Blair!

    Why would Blair be that upset if it is Cole? I would think it is probably Todd because I do not think RH was ever going to Prospect Park who knows the marathon was good I had not seen a lot of those episodes great to see my Asa loved the actor and the character.

    Maybe it’s Todd since some of the dead characters like Gabrielle (and I’m forgetting the other one) come back before the end also. Maybe his life is just in limbo like when Vicki went to heaven.

  11. Blake says:

    I would hate for Todd to die after killing his brother, I was hoping they would find out he was really brainwashed or Irene really did it. The Todd and Victor Jr story should have been written so much better. TSJ should have been able to come back (assuming he wanted to).

    Talk about a woman carrying a show….. Erika Slezak’s, another Erica to say the least. Only thing, this Erika is a real person. This lady like Susan Lucci, is CLASS but without all the FUSS and high maintenance. Erika Slezak is the Meryl Streep of Daytime. Actually, I would bet every dollar in my Bank Acct, that Erika Slezak (if given the opportunity with a major Leading Role in the movies, she could and would come home with the Oscar from th Academy Awards. I love you Erika (Vicky) Slazak. Please do Broadway, win a Tony. Take a major role in Prime-Time and win an Emmy. Audtion for a lead in the movies, and bring home the Oscar as the 1st soap actor with 6 Recording Breaking Emmy’s, and the ONLY to win and Oscar…!
    Erika, I love you. And I adore how STRONG you are in your SPOT. You always give prompts to Robin Stresser (Dorian Lord). I will miss watching you and learning from you on screen. You are amazing!

    Watching much of the SoapNet OLTL marathon New Year’s Day proves your points, friend. She is incredible, even if the material is almost too much to believe. Class act? You got that right! I told my partner that Slezak surely must do legit theatre. She is clearly a consummate actress. I would love to see her in classics (Chekov) and contemporary roles. I cannot see Slezak ever “going Califorinia” and the movies though.

    You said it all, erika slezak is class ,And I will miss visiting with her everyday.Bring out the tissues people ,this will be for me the hardest ending of a soap .I cried through those 14 hours on soap net and now I have to watch the dismantling of the best soap and group of people ever,on daytime television history ,thankyou to all the cast ,writers for coming into my home 5 days a week for decades of enjoyment ,you will be missed.

    My guess, the person on the stretcher in the ER that Starr is referring to, is Cole NOT Todd.

    I agree. I feel like they’re intentionally misleading us by showing the sobbing Blair clip so close to it. I bet Cole dies saving his daughter.

    I agree i think it is cole on the stretcher and he is the one she is referring to. and i also think they are misleading us by showing blair sobbing in the clip.this is like a few weeks ago in the promo they showed gigi and rex and todd and blair. two different storylines and they had starr say to todd not to fool around if you love someone tell them. well it was not todd who tells blair he loved her it was rex telling gigi he loved her! so these promos are definatly misleading to get you to watch.

    barbara t replied

    Thats good drama,I love the writers of one life to live.best stories ever,General hospital is lucky to get them.

    hummingbird replied

    I think the reason Hannah is @ the house is because she’s come to finish what she started & kill Starr. Cole sees Harrah & follows her into the house. Hannah holds Starr @ gun point. Cole comes out of the shadows & takes a bullet for Starr. I don’t believe Cole dies though in the ER. I think the person that dies, is Ford. He will take a button too protecting his woman, but sadly he will pay with his life. Cole & Starr will elope with Hope in toe with Todd & Blair’s help. Leaving both families to live out their lives happily ever after, but seperately. My guess, Cole,Starr & Hope will start their new life family life together by joining Patrick & Marty full time. While they travel back to visit Starr’s family often.

    I don’t know how to explain the sadness I feel to others, without them thinking I am crazy. I know it’s just television, but I LOVE OLTL. WHY does a show this BREATHTAKINGLY STUPENDOUS have to end?

    Reply

    Gloria replied

    I feel exactly the same way. The cancellation of this show is the worst thing that happened to me in 2011. Because without it where do you turn for escape? When huge, tragic things happen, which they seem to every day, everywhere and you can tune them out for an hour a day with your Llanview friends the world doesn’t seem so bad, does it? Now what? What to count on, look forward to, be excited about every day? I felt so happy & relieved in early July when we thought the show was going online, got my first good sleep since April 14. Then the bombshell dropped on us very cruelly on the night before Thanksgiving. This has really put a damper on my holidays-no matter how good everything else is going there is the black cloud of January 13 looming. I cannot stand it.

    After I wrote this, I read another thread of Michael’s–Best and Worst List of 2011 (Dec 31)–where someone compared OLTL to a “pile of garbage,” and I felt worse, for a moment, until I read your response. Thank you, Gloria.

    I don’t know where to look for escapist entertainment on television anymore either. I like the intergenerational family drama of OLTL; I’ve grown to love the characters and actors like my own family. And like you, I really look forward to it everyday. I feel disappointed when the weekend comes because OLTL isn’t on. It’s funny that the last sentence you wrote–I cannot stand it–is actually the first sentence I wrote, but I deleted it before submitting.

    The loss of OLTL is painful for those of us who have cherished it for years. It is like the death of a beloved family member. We will cry and grieve. But I think the last thing the cast, crew, writers, and producers would want is for loyal viewers to remember OLTL sadly after so many wonderful years. We must go on and seek solace elsewhere. Gloria, you won’t be alone.

    I really do not want to be right here… but I think it could be Sam. He’s been so great to watch… too bad it couldn’t be James. Actually not sure why we have to end the show this way…

    Has to be Rick the Prick. Who would they kill off this late in time? Nobody who matters much. I still say Todd is arrested, but killed?

    I am hoping it is not Todd. I think OLTL’s end will allow for some redemption on the character and hope for he and Blair to finally be the couple they are destined to be. Cole or Rick are better guesses, particularly Cole (Weren’t they trying to woo back the actor?) I keep praying the finale will not be the disappointment AMC’s was or the rush-job GL was. Some did not care for it, but I thought ATWT ended well with its OUR TOWN take on Oakdale. No, it did not have as much history shared and all, but it was effective for me.

    Damn, you watch all the soaps, how do you keep up with so many on more than one channel? I mean, you know the ending of these other shows……

    We are a big ABC family, until I defected to CBS. (I never watched NBC programs save for SUNSET BEACH (loved their shipwreck plot line). I often would switch back and forth. I would tape some, then technology allowed online and DVR. And there was Soapnet. Thanks to Michael Fairman and others like him (the great Lynda Hirsch) you could keep up with all the plots. I like to watch the youtube clips and read anniversary books and other histories, too. But I do not know everything. There are gaps. Daytime drama is a great genre. I feel as my dad must have when he spoke of radio shows. He always missed them. I am missing my soaps.

    Heather replied

    I don’t think there was anything wrong with the final episode of Guiding Light (though the final episode of ATWT might have been better). But then again, I never watched Guiding Light other than its final episode on Youtube. So it’s hard for me to really judge if it was a rush ending. But as a one time viewer, the GL ending seemed reasonnable to me.

    As for the final episode of All My Children? No comments.

    CAN SOMEONE TELL ME WHAT HAPPENED TO THIS…. WHICH WAS POSTED ON DECEMBER 7th, UNDER NEW SOAP BUZZ……
    ( Here we go again, soapers! And let’s hope nobody is yanking on the chain of the soap world again! But, news out today from Variety is that Prospect Park is still looking to bring One Life to Live and All My Children online! )

    WHAT HAPPENED, are they still looking? I have been looking on this site and other’s for an update since Dec 7th, so I thought it was STILL a possibility…. I was aware in the article that for AMC it might be a LONG HAUL, but OLTL seemed moreso. WHAT HAS OCCURED SINCE DEC 7th? And, WHERE DID YOU READ IT AND WHERE CAN I FIND IT TO READ IT?

    nothing,There has been no more talk other then they are looking for funding overseas,At the google news ,I have a one life to live updates and there is a interview with erika slezak.and she said that pps heart was in bringing the soaps on the net but everyone on the show ,well there all going in different directions ,thats bad.she also said that the main reason abc drop the soaps is greed ,as I said all along ,both amc and oltl were doing good in the ratings abc wants out and I think gh is next,there changing the face of daytime tv for cheep crap shows and she also said that alot of people will be out of work,so abc disney the family channel doesnt really care about family,look what they have done by killing the history of all my children and one life to live for more talk shows to shove down our throats ,I for one will not be watching.
