66 May 13th, 2013 Florencia Lozano and Trevor St. John’s Heartbreaking Performances on Monday’s One Life to Live!

Courtesy/TOLN

One Life to Live fans of Tea and Victor Jr. (AKA actors, Florencia Lozano and Trevor St. John) take note!  Monday’s episode of One Life  on Hulu and iTunes, illustrates once again the power of the performances when these two get together and ignite on screen!

(SPOILER ALERT) If you have not watched today’s episode you may not want to read any further, but to suffice to say, we will give you these heads-up below!

Victor Jr. comes to Tea to tell her he is leaving town again and to keep the family safe! A devastated Tea tries to come to terms with the news after she finally was reunited with the love of her life for just a stitch in time!  Then Victor Jr. has the difficult task of telling Jack, Dan. and little  Sam he has to go away.  All hankie-filled moments.  Kudos today to Florencia Lozano and Trevor St. John who continue to amaze!

Meanwhile, in another great performance, that of Roger Howarth as Todd Manning, Todd is trying to make amends with his family, can he do it?   Elsewhere, Matthew turns out  to be a not-so-good dad, and that’s putting it mildly! Jeffrey tells him off for it.   Destiny looks like she is clearly hiding something and not working where she says she is, and Dani and Matthew look to be growing closer.

Watched today’s episode of One Life to Live after the jump! Then, let us know what you thought of Florencia and Trevor? And Roger, too?  An embarrassment of riches in Llanview today, that viewers who fought so hard to have their show back got to enjoy on this heartbreaking episode!

    totally disagree. This show holds no appeal for me anymore. The acting isn’t great…I don’t believe the stories…there’s a lack of cohesiveness.

    Trevor/Victor still hasn’t been properly acknowledged! He’s back from the supposed dead…and there’s been no reaction…no conversation. Absurd.

    Vicki’s talked to him once…for two minutes.

    We never saw him unite with Sam, his only biological child.

    We never saw Blair have any reaction other than “glad to have you back…for Jack’s sake.”

    The scenes are spliced together snippets.

    Just when I was thrilled that Trevor was back he’s leaving…and c’mon…he ain’t comin’ back. He made it clear on ABC’s OLTL that he was done with soaps…. Now, granted, they only shoot for four (five?) weeks and then have the same amount of time to pursue other projects. But if he lands a full time gig somewhere else…

    If he wanted to stick around I doubt he’d be written off so quickly.

    Dani is obnoixious. I get that she was hurt…but there’s nothing likeable about her anymore.

    There’s no sense of family/community…nothing that brought the characters of OLTL together.

    David is on the one hand the same silly/funny dude he was on ABC…but then all of a sudden he’s serious and wise. But not like the savvy guy that his character was originally, way back. So now he’s just somewhere in between.

    All in all, a huge disappointment on every level.

    Hearbreatking scenes? I think the show is heartbreakingly bad…

    Just watching now…but I agree with you about the show, where is the family?? I do love TSJ and TL thought.

    AJ replied

    The show isn’t about TSJ.. who cares how the rest of the characters react to him, obviously they don’t care about him that much. There’s only 30 minutes of the show each day, they don’t have time to dedicate an entire episode to people crying and getting reactions to his return.. there’s a greater story to be told.

    TnT 2.0 Forever replied

    @AJ

    TSJ played the lead character on the show for 8 years, it would just make sense from a writing standpoint to explore how the rest of the characters react to him. Logically, they should have some reaction, whether negative or positive. As for who cares, all the TSJ fans who waited over a year for his return to OLTL care.

    jimh replied

    I kept wondering why im not hooked and your comments made me understand why. You are so right! The show for me looks good but storywise its too dark and gloomy…i have a teenager who dont like it at all. Danis done drugs, a moody Victor seems more intent on killing Todd then spending time with his family, Viki cares more about the banner and Victors return is like no real big deal to most…youd think Viki would make his shocking return a news event, Dorians political scandal is a snooze fest, Mathew is a deadbeat dad and Destiny is supposed to hook up with a sugar daddy, Rama wants an open marriage, Natalie seems lost without John, Nora and Bos return seems pointless, Vikis and Clints wedding which i looked forward to may not take place…it barely feels like the show i remember. I will watch only a few episodes that sound interesting but if it doesnt improve soon ill be done with it for good!

    Chelle replied

    I hate to say it but I agree. I noticed that with David first, he was always so funny, it was almost like shock value with some of the things he did. Everyone seems watered down. The whole TSJ coming back as Victor and his scenes with FloLo have been soooo great, but yes, there was no explanation, like he was just back from a vacation. I don’t want to tune out…but I just might

    MSpellen replied

    I agree. Victor’s return should have had a huge impact on everyone. Bo and Nora are bored w/o Matthew around. Why did they changed the actress that used to play Destiny? And if Starr left Port Charles, where did she go, and why wasn’t she by Danni’s side with Todd?

    josiem replied

    I watch in hopes that it will get better but it doesn’t. The acting is so bad. Everyone is trying so hard to be cool. I can’t believe the language I hear either. Blaire Kramer was always such a lady now she’s using the word a-hole. I was so excited to have the show back and now I’m just made that the characters of Starr, John and Todd were removed from General Hospital. Foul!

    Gillian replied

    I stopped watching because of the awful writing. I’ve always lived the actors but want to remember the show the way it was in the end – brilliant. AMC still remains a must see for me, along with GH.

    I think that Victor and tied to join together to protect the kids from: whatever is going on with Victor the kids must come firstI enjoy watching Todd on the show and will miss him if you take him off but if you send him away on business he can always come back . and Jack is a lot like his dad Todd so he needs to come at a different angle with Jack you can’t buy his love he had to earn his respect cannot buy itI also think Victor and Todd need each other they have good fights and battles but they are brothers after all

    I’m starting to think that Todd did not shoot Victor and Victor realizes all the crap that happen because Todd was on trial (star driving threw port charles, and Tea ending up there when the baby was born.) and that is way he stop trying to kill him.

    Reply

    TNT 2.0 Forever replied

    What does Todd being on trial has to do with Tea losing her baby? I have never heard of a woman losing a baby because someone else was on trial for murder. The problem isn’t where she had the baby, its the fact that the baby died. Besides, Port Charles is a great place to have a baby since they have such a great hospital there. As for Starr being in Port Charles, that has less to do with Todd being on trial and more to do with the fact that KA signed a contract with GH. Besides, whose to say that Victor has stopped trying to kill Todd? The storyline isn’t over yet.

    Why should I watch anymore if TSJ as Victor is gone again? PLEASE tell me that this is just part of the s/l and that Todd will somehow save Victor from the weird tattoo underground gang.

    Reply

    TnT 2.0 Forever replied

    I would like to think that Victor is coming back. However, this is Victor’s storyline, not Todd’s, so Victor should be the one to triumph over his own demons. He doesn’t need Todd to rescue him.

    Reply

  13. AJ says:

    I haven’t seen the episode, but I’ve read the spoilers, and while I’m no great fan of TSJ like many here.. it’d be an EPIC LETDOWN to have him leave town and disappear.

    Victor was poisoning Todd, that’s a conflict that needs to be resolved.. you can’t just walk away from that. Either Todd finds out, or somebody finds out and blackmails Victor. You can’t have Victor poison Todd.. decide not to anymore.. and leave it at that. Plus, where the hell has Victor been for a year.. finding out the details of Victor’s capture and escape needs to be told.. who was the guy chasing him.. what does the tattoo mean.

    If they let Victor walk away without some kind of resolution to those stories.. then the writing staff needs to be FIRED! Piss-poor storytelling, Victor v. Todd is a great budding rivalry that can only help this show and keep it interesting and butts in front of the screens.

    It be great if Victor started working for Viki at the Banner, while she’s busy trying to get the financials together.. Victor could be running the paper and going after the Sun.. which would create another conflict between Victor and Todd.. upping their hatred for one another and the rivalry. Victor doesn’t have a job.. he ran the Sun.. sure he could help Viki at her paper. Viki mentioned it was part of Todd’s legacy.. it’s also Victor’s.

    I’m not gonna bitch and moan too much, because I’m just happy to have the show back.. but misuse of characters drives me up the wall. If the writing staff can’t figure out how to create conflict and drama for these characters, they need to be replaced.

    jimh replied

    I agree with you…im trying to stay a fan but unresolved storylines like you mention will eventually cost some viewers like me! They should at least say where Victor was all this time plus a feud between brothers is why i tuned back in as well. I like your idea with Victor working for Viki at the Banner!

    OL is doing great! It is everyday it is exciting, and emotional..
    The writers are doing a good job..
    It has only been 11 shows including the Friday reviews..
    I think the pace and the stories have been awesome and they are just getting started and I’m looking forward to watching them all unfold as time goes by..

    The bellyaches and complainers should just simply stop watching and or shut the hell up, they are so much like spoiled children who bang their heads on walls a stomp their feet for attention, very annoying people… (glad I don’t have to live with them sourpusses lol

    I have a feeling the answer to that is no. Have not watched week 3 episode 1 yet, but in the first two weeks no one has mentioned Starr. Not even her parent’s!

    TnT 2.0 Forever replied

    Yeah, that’s odd! I think its being intentionally the writers until they decide to re-cast the character.

    Correction: I think its being done intentionally by the writers until they decide to re-cast the character.

    Joliefan forever replied

    I don’t think that would be a smart idea right now, That little girl meant everything to him and I think at this point and time it would not have been a smart thing to do…..

    Reply

    TnT 2.0 Forever replied

    Yeah, but its strange that no one has at least mentioned Starr though. Victor spent more time with Starr than with Hope. I would think he would at least ask for Starr. I think the writers just omitted Starr and her family, just like everyone else besides Tea seemed to overlook the fact that Victor had returned from the dead. They might re-cast Starr though, but for now no one seems to know she exists just like no one seems to know that Jessica Buchanan or any of Vicki’s children besides Natalie exists.

    Florencia & Trevor are A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. Their chemistry is off-the-charts and haven’t missed a beat. I hope TSJ returns because there are endless possibilities with those two as a *team* against anyone in Llanview.

    I swear I think FL and TSJ are ‘acting soulmates’ and are electric when they’re having sex or fighting.

    EPIC

    Florencia Lozano and Trevor St. John are SOULMATES when it comes to acting. I could watch them read the phone book together.

    Bring on the love scenes and the arguing, they are rocking it all. I hope TSJ comes back since they back each other better.

    I haven’t stopped watching and supporting but it’s just sad. I love TSJ and FL apart and together!!! They are the OLTL super couple! I am very torn… today’s episode was better because of them and RH!!! However it is just not well written and I am so unhappy TSJ is leaving. The show will be very sad without him and RH. I agree with the lack of family comments above. I am also tired of all of the anger and angst…
    ill keep hoping it gets better!

    The scenes between Victor and Tea are terrific. My heart was breaking as Tea begged Victor not to leave again. FL and TSJ are fabulous together. And of course the water works started flowing as Dani and Jack embraced Victor. I was a mess when Victor held Sam. I’m not convinced that TSJ is leaving the show. Victor’s leaving may just be an element of the story line. Victor did show up at Todd’s in the last shot. I wonder if all of this, including the circular symbol, is part of Irene Manning’s madness.

    I cheered when Destiny slapped Matthew. I’m sorry that Jack destroyed the computer. He should have had a messenger return it to Todd along with a note saying “Thanks but no thanks.”

    AHHHHhhh my FL & TSJ did not disappoint. They truly are acting soulmates. I FLOVE them together and apart. They are the glue that hold my viewership of this show together. Cannot wait for Tea to start piecing stuff together with Bo’s help. I was upset at first about TSJ departure but after today then I am confident he will be back and I am liking the mystery that will involve everyone except RH but As always I take the good, bad, & meh:)

    Only nine episodes in and some are complainng so much! I am so glad to have OLTL back and I am enjoying it. People are actinlg liek it is so bad. Not every story was great when it was on ABC either. True fans stick it out! I think most of the stories are very good for a start. I am not fond of what is happening with Matthew and Destiny but love so much more including the theme song. People cried and complained for a year to get this back and now are ready to abandon ship this fast? Sad truly sad. I will never give up on OLTL! Give the new writers a chance!!!

    OLTL is different but it is fine. I am enjoying having Llanview and its characters back. Is there a little disconnect with characters right now – yes; is the younger generation acting different from what we remember on ABC – yes; was the Victor return handled kind of casually – yes; does it seems like we are expected to accept that a lot of things/conversations are happening off camera – yes. But I’m sticking with the show. I enjoy the half-hour, four-day-a-week episodes and I look forward to the producers learning the best way to present this web version of OLTL. It will take time. We fought and fought to get our soap back – and PP kept fighting when we didn’t even know it – let’s be grateful and enjoy what we have right now.

    I am disappointed about the way the whole Victor Jr story was played out. I don’t feel we got any answers and then he just up and leaves as fast as he shows up. Todd mentions that he and Victor talked but I didn’t see that maybe I missed it. Nobody seemed really surprised by his being alive and while I love he and Tea together but what should she do now? Sit and wait. I waited all this time and really got no payoff. I hope someday he will come back and give my favorite couple the story they deserve.

    Tuesday show seemed to go too fast… or rather the scenes with Todd & Victor. The club scenes were ok, but I hope that Shelter isn’t considered another character in the soap… there is already way too much drinking and drunkedness… unless they’re trying to get underage drinkers hooked on soaps! ha!

    anyways, Tea’s scene were rather slow, too much drinking at the club and Dani’s apt., and then there was Todd & Victor… I wonder if there is still poison in the decanter at Todd’s now. hmmmm… and hopefully Todd will be saved!

    The only thing I hate is that Natalie keeps acting like John left her. Did anyone tell her what she did while John was in Port Charles? Makes me laugh. They had to have watched to be semi-cohesive. She moved on, Clint threatened him, Clint’s lawyers got Nat custody, etc, etc, etc. Sheesh. John WANTED Natalie back now the story is he left her? Bah!

    Reply

  33. Onlymy2cents says:

    IMHO Natalie left John because of the pictures that Todd sent to Natalie of John and Sam. John lawyered up when Clint filed restraining order. John should have gone home and fought for what he loved, but he didn’t. He stayed in town with Sam (off and on) and then decided to get on the police force. Why, all of a sudden, does he want full custody? He should have been calling Nat all along and trying to make peace (if that’s what he really wanted). In my opinion, John has never loved anyone but himself. He doesn’t stick and work it out, he runs away or buries himself in work. I’m surprised Nat wants him back. He’s dull, boring, brooding and isn’t good with his personal relationships. As a father, he should have come back to town just to be with his son, or at least inquired about his son. He had to know Clint was behind all the legalities–if he knew anything about his wife that is…which he obviously does not. John McBain was best on screen as a vampire. Other than that, there is nothing to his character except blah-blah-blah!
