On-Air On-Soaps has named Robert S. Woods and Jerry verDorn’s performance on this past Thursday’s episode of One Life to Live this week’s Power Performance of the Week! As Buchanan brothers, Bo and Clint, Woods and VerDorn’s long awaited showdown did not disappoint, in fact, it exceeded our expectations!
Finally, Clint fesses up in his bitter vitriol that he did indeed set up Bo and Nora’s marriage to unravel and pulled the strings with Inez to get her to be part of his payback for Nora leaving him for brother Bo, and the humiliation he suffered because of it. VerDorn played it to perfection.
But it was Robert Woods, quiet, powerful, understated performance as betrayed brother Bo, that pulled at our heartstrings, when all the pieces come together for the police commissioner as he holds his older brother at gunpoint. And, as the scene unraveled in yet another powerful moment, Bo tells Clint due to Clint’s part in his plot against them, he almost got Nora raped by Eddie Ford!
What made the scenes even more stellar for long time fans of the Buchanan family and One Life to Live were the references to Asa, and that Clint has now sunk lower than Asa ever did! The icing on the cake was at the end of the showdown when Bo picked up Asa’s hat and told Clint he doesn’t deserve to call himself a Buchanan.
Brilliant writing, brilliant performances, and the best part – we don’t have to live through Bo and Nora being duped any longer! Kudos to Robert S. Woods and Jerry verDorn for delivering to us classic soap opera! Check out the video clip below of Woods and VerDorn in this week’s Power Performance of the Week!
