Wasn't today's Christmas episode on ONE LIFE TO LIVE kind of bizarre? It was just very different from the usual holiday fare, although a departure from the norm is certainly not a bad thing in a genre that has as many recycled plots as it does. You've got the police commissioner dressed as Santa trying to buoy the spirits of the many Llanview denizens who are having a crummy December, while Sarah sadly looked on after learning that her boyfriend is going to marry a hot Colombian woman who needs asylum. Meanwhile, Jessica was having a major breakdown at St. Ann's and ratting Brody out for seeing visions of the Iraqi boy he killed — all to an eerie rendition of "Carol of the Bells." Doesn't it seem that since Jessica has checked herself into the mental hospital she's crazier than ever? I think Tess and Bess come out as often as Jessica does. And which one will Brody fall for? Frankly, two crazy people do not equal one healthy relationship so let's hope they explore that angle after they're released.
