    One Lifes finale, last scene: Natalie arrives to her apartment and makes a shocking discovery-the babysister is found stabbed to death and Liam is missing! Cut to street scene: a blonde woman walking down the street with a small child by her side. The woman is singing: ‘Hush little baby dont say a word’ ect. The woman suddenly turns to face the camera, and she smiles wickedly at the audience…its Allison Perkins, and the child with her is Liam!!! She resumes walking with him and continues singing. The end of first season! Fade to black! Season two: the return of John Mcbain in search of his missing son!!!

    I’m thinking you’re right….it’s been a fool’s game on Fans.

    I do expect to see more of the cast taking other roles. Putting a halt to the show due to the lawsuit is not in the best interest of the show. More importantly, it’s definitely not in the best interest of the fans.

    I agree. I predicted this would happen. The hiatus is not a smart idea. The actors need a paycheck. They are not going to just sit home waiting for OLTL to return. Once the show finally returns, they might have to get a whole new cast because many of the original cast members might be attached to other projects.

    From day 1 PP gave all the cast the freedom to pressure other projects while under contract with them…
    You will see others branching out if even for an episode on other shows if the opportunity comes their way..
    Their online contracts are not like network tv soap contracts..

    I was aware that they are allowed to pursue other projects. The issue is how long will the lawsuit take? PP is going head to head with Disney who can afford to make this difficult if they chose to by using legal tactics to delay a quick resolution to this lawsuit. Disney probably won’t though, but they could. Meanwhile, the cast members need to be paid and might sign on to long-term projects that would prevent them from taping when OLTL returns. I can’t see PP preventing them from landing long-term jobs on other soaps and TV shows when OLTL isn’t even taping. They need stable jobs.

    Good for Amber. Nothing against her, but I really didn’t like her character and wouldn’t mind if she wasn’t back, should OLTL return.

    That being said, I read an article that reminded me that all pioneers of different mediums fell flat on their faces when they started and those who followed learned form their mistakes and succeeded. Could PP be considered Pioneers in web-based soap operas? I wonder because I think, while some aspects of what they’re doing are different, many are the same as those who have come even before them. People like Crystal Chappell (who’s shooting a bazillion on-line shows), Van Hansis and Martha Burns, with shows like EMPIRE, GOTHAM and EASTENDERS, to name a few, have been hitting their marks.

    So I want be patient and hope for the best. I find this halting production of OLTL because of what ABC did a bunch of hooey. Re-write what ABC did and go on. Maybe they can’t get RH, ME. or KA back right now. Move on. Forget that ABC killed Hope, Cole and Tea’s baby. They didn’t have to accept that. The fans would have understood if they had picked up as if the characters never went to GH.

    Get OLTL back on the air and let’s move on before other stars get contracts for other shows. That would be the real crime in my eyes.

    CW’s b& the beast is one of the most racially diverse tv shows and it’s quite good. It’s shocking that kristen kreuk wasn’t whitewashed and actually portrays a char who’s part Asian american! They even had her Asian american sister on an ep. Her boss is African american. The main villain is Indian american actor sendhil ramamurthy who is not only handsome but a very good actor best known for nbc’s heroes. It’s very diverse and quite well acted and entertaining for a sci fi tv show. They should continue more racial diversity on b&tb! While that other show abbreviated as b&tb should learn more abt racial diversity from much younger beauty and the beast.
