This week’s brand new episodes of One Life to Live on Hulu and iTunes are not-to-be-missed as they offer surprise revelations and more! (SPOILER ALERT: if you have not seen this week’s One Life yet, you may not want to read any further!)
In episodes posted yesterday on Soap Monday, # 52 and #53, viewers learn that Corbin Bleu’s character of Jeffrey King is not the good guy he pretends to be, (we first got wind of this when the mysterious tattoo emblem showed up on the bottom of his foot on last week’s episodes). This week, we come to learn he has been sent to Llanview to help the “Organization” bring down Clint Buchanan (Jerry verDorn)! In addition, we learn that Jeffrey was not suppose to let Victor Jr. (Trevor St. John) slip out of town and disappear!
How do we know all this? Thanks to the arrival of soap opera favorite, Ron Raines (the former Alan Spaulding of Guiding Light) in his new role as Carl Peterson, who is Jeffrey’s benefactor, but much more than that! He seems to be part of a huge former CIA operative – remember Irene Manning, Victor and Todd’s mom, on ABC’s One Life? And it is Carl who is pulling the strings and has been having Jeffrey do his dirty work … substituting Clint’s heart pills with another drug that mixed with alcohol will make him appear manic!
But here is how it ties together – or at least starts to! Carl reveals that his sister is Allison Perkins (Barbara Garrick) and why apparently she kidnapped Victor Jr. at the end of the cliffhanger finale of the ABC version of One Life. Looks like Allison has some help now, and the “Organization” wants to capture both Todd and Victor Jr. and destroy Clint!
Watch a clip from this week’s One Life to Live below, which begins to reveal the sinister plot of Carl Peterson and Jeffrey King! And make sure to watch this week’s episodes to see a fantastic star turn performance by Jerry verDorn (Clint)!
Let us know, were you shocked that Jeffrey turned bad? What do you think of Ron Raines character being the brother of the wacky Allison Perkins? Do you think the story makes sense to you of how it ties in the entire season of One Life to Live and what came before it at the end of it’s ABC run? Weigh-in!
