44 April 4th, 2013 TOLN Releases One Life to Live Video Story Recap Featuring Epic Feud Of Viki & Dorian!

Courtesy/TOLN

One Life to Live fans are in for a real treat because The Online Network (TOLN) has just released this juicy video clip package to get you up to date at where we are in the story since the 43-year-old soap was cancelled by ABC, and it aired it’s final episode and sensational cliffhanger back in January of 2012.

Now, fast forward to April of 2013 and Llanview is back, featuring so many of your beloved favorites when it’s first new episode is revealed on April 29th on Hulu.com, HuluPlus and iTunes!

To get you caught up and ready, six-time Daytime Emmy winner Erika Slezak (Viki) provides the narration and re-introduces us to the people in Viki’s life and her family   It starts with classic clips of the best supercouple on daytime, Viki Banks and her nemeisis, Dorian Cramer Lord (Robin Strasser).  From there, we see Viki’s on- again off -again relationship over the years with Clint Buchanan (Jerry verDorn), whom when OLTL went off the air, Clint had proposed to Viki!

Then, the excitement picks up from there with the “Tale of the Two Todds”, and how the Todd (Roger Howarth) and Victor Jr. (Trevor St. John) story played out right till the end of the ABC version of the series, where we saw that Victor Jr. was very much alive!  Plus, we learn of Nora (Hillary B. Smith) and Bo’s (Robert S. Woods) relationship, their son Matthew (Then Eddie Alderson, now Robert Gorrie) and Bo’s son, David Vickers (Tuc Watkins)!  In addition, brand new footage from the new One Life is part of the clips!  And oh yes, Viki also tells the story of Natalie (Melissa Archer) and John (Michael Easton) and says they were “star-crossed” lovers!

Watch “The Best of One Life to Live” video story recap below, and let us know if you were as excited to see all these amazing clips?  And, how do you think the story will begin to unfold when One Life resumes in just a few weeks?

    Oh my goodness I am so excited I was excited before but now it’s to the tenth power!!!
    I am very excited to see my show again. I hope this means Victor is back I want to see him reunite wih Dani and Tea and knock Todd the heck out with a right hook! He has so much potential in stories from his crazy love with Tea and his feuding with his beautiful daughter Dani to his great scenes with Roger Howarth to when they explore the history of him/ Victor. I also want to see where Danis story goes now that hates out of the picture she could actually have a good love interest her young love story with Matthew was great but I hope they don’t reunite because with a new actor it won’t be the same and this pretty boy seems like he will suck I won’t mind her being single for a while I really hope they don’t make her and Destiny sluts like it seems they will. I want to see an episode with Todd, Tina, Vicki, and Victor All in it that would be classic. But no matter what they do I will be tuning in April 29th save the date OLTL forever!!!!!

    I am kind of surprised that Prospect Park was allowed to use clips from ABC.
    Michael, Do you know if Soapnet will be able to continue to show OLTL & AMC repeats once the new episodes start?

    internet only. Besides, we need to make sure that people can only watch the shows online.. the more hits/downloads.. the better! I encourage everyone to watch each episode a couple of times on different services for more ‘unique’ hits, the fans will decide if this is a success or not, don’t think we’ll get a 3rd life to live.

    PP bought the rights to OLTL- all the RIGHTS!! I believe they have a piece of the pie also.

    Mark in FLA replied

    The repeats I am talking about are the ones that Soapnet still shows early in the morning. 6AM here on the east coast for OLTL. It appears the episodes are 2 to 3 years old. I fully understand that all of the new episodes will be internet only.

    I wouldve loved a feud between brothers Todd(RH) and Victor(TSJ) similar to Viki and Dorian! If only everything couldve worked out btween abc and pp…and if TSJ had returned full time…both OLTL and GH i feel couldve benfit greatly ratingwise with a crossover storyline…but thats old news now and the both shows must go one!

    Love, love, love the recap. I can’t wait till the 29th. Fitting that ES narrated it, she did a wonderful job. Enjoyed watching the last scenes of when OLTL was first cancelled, a colossal mistake it was. Still get choked up when Bob Woods he said I love you to his red…could barely get the words out.

    Yay… :)

    Can’t wait for the 29th. Will be watching. So thankful we our soap got another chance, should have never been cancelled. Just hope they re-cast John McBain as he is such an important character in the show. Although we will miss Michael Easton, I am sure in time we can adjust to a new actor.

    Really good trailer/recap got me even more hyped then I was for April 29th but it would had been 10 times better had they shown the scene of Victor alive right after they showed John arresting Todd.
