In the final episode of the season of One Life to Live, it was not a good night for many of the citizens of Llanview and that’s putting it mildly! ( SPOILER ALERT: If you have not seen the episode do not read on).
First, Clint (Jerry verDorn) had a drunken and drugged meltdown at the Man of the Year Gala and ends up in stretcher and in restraints and carted off to the Psyche Ward at the hospital! A big old bad “thank you” would be in order to Carl Peterson (Ron Raines) and his protege Jeffrey King (Corbin Bleu), who set up Clint for interfering in their mission somehow with their cult, and their plans for Todd and Victor Jr.
Clint’s daughter, Natalie (Melissa Archer) came out of the night emotionally and physically tattered! First, the man she is dating and just slept with Cutter (Josh Kelly), turns out to be a scoundrel, once again! Nat learned from bartender Nikki (Jenni “JWoww” Farley), that the bar keep had been having sex with Cutter for months. Meanwhile, Nikki is holding Cutter’s dealings over his head, so he stays away from Natalie. But then, Nikki spills a drink intentionally all over Natalie’s white dress! Next, poor Natalie watches in horror as her dad is being put in restraint and taken to the hospital. Then she pleads with the rest of the family to help him, but she ends up along with Matthew (Rob Gorrie) being the only ones from the Buchanan clan to go check on Clint in the hospital!
Blair (Kassie DePaiva) has a tough night too! She got all upset and in tears crying over Todd during a speech made at the Man of the Year Gala! And yet, she still did not tell Viki (Erika Slezak) what trouble, or where on earth Todd went too! Later, Jack (Andrew Trischitta) has a heart to heart with his mom, only he just got done having sex with his summer school teacher, Kate (Alice Callahan)!
Tea (Florencia Lozano) and Dani (Kelley Missal) had a horrible night for the most part too! First, Dani gets a snotty mouthful from Michelle, who shows up in the exact same dress at the gala, and then Tea freaks out when she learns Dani is with the much older Arturo (Paolo Seganti) as her date. As Tea tries to protect Dani from what she thinks could be a sexual predator, Dani tells Tea off and leaves with Arturo. These two end up in Arturo’s hotel room … having sex!
And then … for the season final cliffhanger, as Natalie (who has now sent Matthew and Michelle home) is waiting to see her dad in the hospital, the doctor comes to take her to Clint, and when she gets there, she sees what appears to be that he has just been in injected with a syringe … and then Natalie screams in horror! Like horror-movie horror! For whom does Natalie see? None other than evil lunatic Allison Perkins (Barbara Garrick) who gleefully says with syringe in hand, “Hello Natalie!”
