One Life To Live Recaps
OLTL Week of March 21, 2011
At Capricorn, Blair sidled up to the bar and discussed Todd's condition with Cristian, who quipped that Todd's too stubborn to die. Tess arrived looking for a cocktail and ruffled everyone's feathers. Ford showed up to take her
back home and told her to behave, at least until Ryder's custody is decided.
Rama was elated to move into Asa's mansion with Aubrey and Joey, who was
still curious about Aubrey's motive and worried what Clint might think.
Aubrey then flashed back to Rama threatening to expose her real identity if
she doesn't come up with the cash to keep her quiet. Rama made a stink about
her small room, much to Nigel's chagrin. Aubrey abided by Rama's requests,
which Joey took note of and asked what's going on.
Bo and Rex showed up at the courthouse to arrest Clint for kidnapping David.
Nora and Viki were stunned by Clint's elaborate plan involving Alex, David,
the fake MyFace messages and the Moroccan prison. Clint had his own story to
explain everything away and claimed it's Vickers's word against his. Bo had
someone willing to testify against Clint, who threatened again and said they
still don't have solid evidence to put him behind bars. Clint pointed out
that Rex knew all along about David and said if he goes down, Rex should to.
He then threatened to plant evidence to incriminate Rex, who promptly
punched Clint in the face. After, Viki was forced to side with Clint out of
the safety and security of Jessica and Ryder. Bo and Nora agreed there's
nothing they can do; Rex thought otherwise. They finally all agreed to focus
on building a tight case to nab Clint for Eddie's murder, instead.
David barged into La Boulaie and was stunned to see Dorian kissing Cutter.
She was unapologetic and introduced David to his replacement: Cutter. "What
is this a cheap knockoff?" he quipped and was outraged that Dorian had
burned all of her mementos from their relationship. David made another plea
to Dorian and kicked gold-digging Cutter out. "My fiance is no goose!" he
spat. Then he explained that he was kidnapped by Clint and didn't run out on
their wedding. After declaring his love, Dorian finally believed David. He,
however, wasn't so quick to forgive her for writing him off so fast and
being so easily swayed by Clint. They eventually made up and had makeup sex.
After, David set out to get revenge on Clint.
Kelly called Joey to tell him about Tess's antics at Capricorn. He rushed
off; Rama needled Aubrey about her husband running out at Kelly's beck and
call. Meanwhile, Tess eyed Cutter and was determined to seduce him. Joey
arrived; Tess ignored him and jumped in a car with Cutter. Kelly comforted
Joey — just as Aubrey arrived.
Back at the mansion, Clint came home and was surprised that Rama was moving
in. Nigel warned Clint about the awkward tension between Aubrey and her pal
Rama.... David left Dorian and pulled a shotgun on Clint.
Natalie overheard Brody singing a sweet song to baby Liam on the baby
monitor and was touched by moment. They bonded over the tense situations
with their significant others. They didn't want to let anyone down. Nat was
taken aback when Brody said that he also feels a responsibility toward Liam
and her now. Nat thanked him for being there for her; he vowed never to
abandon her but questioned whether being there would make her family upset.
At Capricorn, Ford frantically searched for Tess, who'd fled with Cutter,
saying she has a lot to offer him ‹ if he's not gay. Meanwhile, Aubrey spied
Kelly and John sharing a close moment. Rama rubbed it in her face. Aubrey
confronted Joey and wondered why he wasn't with Tess. They all realized
that she'd escaped on the sly. Kelly wondered why she didn't recognize Rama
from boarding school; Aubrey covered. Ford entered to say that Tess ran off
with Cutter. Kelly figured it was because Cutter needed a rebound after
Dorian ditched him. Aubrey was miffed and left to call Cutter. Rama,
meanwhile, met Cristian at the bar and they shared a spark
Charlie paid Echo a visit and they quickly fell into a loving embrace. After
sex, Charlie said he can't stay because he has to go home to Viki. He said
he can't leave Viki but doesn't want their relationship to end either. Echo
David ditched Dorian, who was surprised when Viki stopped by her bedroom.
Viki presented a note from David, saying he has to take care of business.
She refused to lose David again and caught Viki up on their reunion. Viki
feigned happiness for her pal. Viki wondered what Tess might know that
Dorian does with regard to Charlie and Echo's "relationship." Dorian
claimed that Tess is just trying to rattle Viki and make her weak by forcing
her to question Charlie's loyalty. Viki thanked Dorian for being such a
Vengeful David, meanwhile, went to confront Uncle Clint ‹ with a shotgun in
tow. Clint goaded David on and pointed the shotgun right at his own heart.
David surmised that Clint really wanted to get shot so Bo would have to
arrest his own son and put him away forever. "Sorry but you're not worth
it," David told Clint and left.
At the Minute Man Motel, Tess ignored Ford's call and tried to put the moves
on Cutter. She started drinking and was delighted that Cutter didn't try to
stop her. They toasted to the bad things in life and bonded. Cutter admitted
that they have a lot in common as nonconformists and laughed that he's not
always been "Cutter Wentworth." Tess was intrigued and they kissed.
Back at Capricorn, Joey was thrown when Kelly revealed that Ford and Aubrey
used to date but she ditched him because he's not rich. Joey was irked and
confronted his wife. She denied it. Tess and Cutter returned; Ford dragged
Tess home. Tess then revealed that she snapped a cell phone photo of Charlie
kissing Echo at the motel.
David returned to Dorian to say he couldn't end his uncle before Clint gets
his due and pays for everything he's done. David asked Dorian to marry him
immediately. She was thrilled.... Charlie came home and rushed to take a
shower before talking to Viki.
Destiny confronted Nate at the gym to ask about Todd's status. He didn't
know and didn't seem to shaken by the situation, much to Des's surprise. He
admitted he's relieved not to have to constantly look over his shoulder
worried that Todd will attack. He explained what happened at the cabin and
how Todd went psycho on them.
At the hospital, Danielle pleaded with her dad to wake up from his coma. Téa
comforted her. Meanwhile, Blair had breakfast with Starr and Jack at the
diner and discussed Todd. Shane was also there before heading back to his
first day of school since his suspension. He and Jack exchanged looks. James
surprised Starr with flowers and sympathy about Todd. Gigi sent Shane off
and handed him his inhaler, begging him not to get in trouble again.
Meanwhile, Jack copped an attitude when Blair gave him bus fare to get to
school and told him to be nice to Shane, which he pretended to do until the
teens were out the door. Jack then continued his taunts against helpless
Shane, saying he'll put him in a coma‹ just like Todd.
At the Minute Man Motel, a new girl named Deanna checked into her own room.
She pulled out her laptop and logged into MyFace, looked up James and
friended him. She then looked up the address to Buenos Dias Caf. Meanwhile,
James went online looking for a job and asked his MyFace pals for help.
Starr helped him.
John was still investigating the shooting. He went to Rodi's and was
surprised to see Natalie back on the job. She blasted him for firing Gigi
and they bickered. Nat was upset when Kelly showed up and stormed out. She
returned to remind Kelly that reporters aren't allowed at scenes of crimes.
John was annoyed. Kelly split. Nat presented John with a Euro she found,
assuming it belonged to the shooter. John told her good work and left to
patch things up with Gigi. Meanwhile, Shaun caught Tomas snooping around
Manning's room at the hospital. They came to blows, much to Téa's shock. She
explained she hired Shaun to watch in case Todd's shooter returned to
"finish him off." They were all stunned that Tomas knows karate, which he
tried to pull on Shaun. Tomas doubled over in pain, clutching his secret
wound. He covered to concerned Téa. Later, Tomas made a mysterious call
giving a progress report on Todd's condition. He went to the diner and met
up with Blair.
Back at the diner, Blair and Gigi discussed their sons and tried to piece
together what happened with the raffle money fiasco. Deanna showed up and
lurked outside. James changed his MyFace status to say he's dating Starr.
Blair fretted to Tomas about Jack going off the deep end if Todd doesn't
pull through. She introduced him to Starr. Deanna entered, overheard and
eyed Starr, who was happy about her new MyFace status.
At school, Jack and Brad taunted Shane, who yelled at them for setting him
up. "You're gonna pay for that," Jack sneered. Later, Jack overheard Nate
talking about Todd and attacked him. Then he took his frustration out on
Shane ... again. He distracted the coach at the gym and cornered Shane with
his bully cronies. Shane tried to run away and his inhaler fell out of his
pocket. He started wheezing; Jack laughed, took the inhaler and left.
Shaun comforted a distraught Téa, who fretted that Todd might never wake up.
Dani went to school and told Des and Nate about the scuffle between Shaun
and Tomas. Dani saw Jack in a rush in the hall and asked him what's going
on.... Natalie told Kelly that John will come back to her.... Blair
introduced Tomas to John. Gigi rushed out to tell Tomas that he accidentally
gave her foreign money; John's ears perked up.... Shaun surmised Tomas is a
Shane was in the gym gasping for air because Jack stole his inhaler.
Danielle and Destiny rushed to his side. He was on the verge of passing out; they got help.
At Buenos Dias Café, Starr was happy to update her MyFace status to
say she's dating James. Deanna watched from afar. Gigi sensed that Deanna was
short on cash and gave her a free meal. Jack skipped school and returned to
the café, telling Starr he wants to visit their dad. Later, Gigi panicked
when she got a call that Shane had a bad asthma attack and rushed off.
Nate dropped by to see if Ford, who was babysitting Ryder, needed help. They
talked about the MyFace relationship status. James grinned from ear to ear.
He was convinced that he and Starr could take the Todd drama, if and when
Manning ever wakes up.
John was curious when Blair told him that Tomas had just returned from
Paris, hence the Euros in his possession, and started questioning him about
his relationship with Téa. Blair was annoyed. John said it was an
occupational hazard and brought up Todd's shooting. Tomas asked if there are
any leads; John confirmed the shooter is a professional and there has been a
break in the case. He noted that Tomas looks pale and then snagged Blair
alone to get more deets on Tomas. He showed her the Euros found at the crime
scene. John was wary about the portrait of Blair and the photo that Tomas
found of her and Todd in Paris. Blair confirmed there was some tension
between Tomas and Todd.
At the Llanview PD, Rex tried to make things up to Bo (still!) for what he
did to David by bringing him chocolate-covered coffee beans — Bo's fave! Nora
said she understands why Rex would keep mum because Clint is so threatening.
Their chat turned to Eddie's murder case. Rex refused to stop investigating
until Clint was put away for the crime. Nora figured out that Eddie died
after the crash. Meanwhile, Bo and David went to
question Nigel about what he knows about Clint's behavior. Nigel admitted
that Clint has been though a rough year and he has done some unethical
things, but he would never commit murder. Nigel then said he was watching
ACCESS LLANVIEW on the night of the crime and when Clint came home he said
he'd been at the office. Bo concluded Clint still doesn't have an alibi. He
returned to the office and told Nora, who suddenly remembered that she went
to the Minute Man Motel after the accident.
Tomas returned to the hospital and gave Shaun a break from watching Todd. He
made another cryptic call, saying Todd could go "either way" and that "he
knows what to do." Blair caught him acting shady in Todd's room. Meanwhile,
John ran a background check on Tomas.
Gigi and Rex arrived at the school, happy to see the nurse gave him an extra
inhaler, which ultimately saved his life. Shane fibbed that he lost the
inhaler. He claimed that the device was ruining his life and said he threw
it out on purpose. Rex and Gigi were concerned that people were making fun
of him. They assured him that he's not a loser. They knew Shane wasn't
telling them the entire truth.... Dani went to the café and asked Jack if he
knew why Shane didn't have his inhaler. He was annoyed and left.... Deanna
assumed Starr and James had a baby together after seeing a pic of them with
Ryder on MyFace.
Tess came home to find Ford in his hot dog outfit. "Oh, look. My husband, the big wiener. Talk about false advertising," she cracked. Ford was upset that Tess had just come home from shopping and spending Ryder's trust fund money while he was out making it at his hot dog gig. He chided her for running off with Cutter and told her that the judge is ready to make a decision regarding Ryder's custody.
In bed, Aubrey shot down Cutter's idea of pursuing a relationship with Tess, worried that she'd ruin things. She fretted that Joey also is (finally) suspecting that she only married him for his money. They hoped things would stay on track until Clint gets arrested for murder so they can steal from the family and split town.
Excited about her nups, Dorian asked Viki to be her matron of honor and arrived at the courthouse all dressed up and ready to tie the knot. Viki was stunned that it was happening so fast; Dorian said they've waited too long and she doesn't need the fanfare because this time it's all about love. Dorian thanked Viki for standing up for her as a friend and they share a sweet moment. When Clint entered, Dorian blasted him for trying to ruin her big day. Viki supported her and forced Clint to leave. Meanwhile, Matthew reunited with his brother, David at Asa's place. David was surprised by Matthew's allegiance to their shady uncle Clint.
At the police station, Nora confessed to Bo that she remembered returning to the Minute Man after the car accident after blocking it out for so long. She was distraught, recalling that she had blood on her hands from the scene of the crime before he found her in the woods. She recalled going back to find Eddie and freaked out at the thought that maybe she killed him for kidnapping her. Bo pushed her to recall every moment of the night she returned to the motel. She was happy to recall that that door was locked and she couldn't get in, therefore, didn't kill Eddie.
Joey complained to Brody about meeting Tess for the first time and explained that she'd taken off with Cutter after making a scene at Capricorn. Joey admitted he's starting to worry about Aubrey and Cutter because they don't seem to be who they say they are, adding that she didn't tell him about her past with Ford, who claimed that Aubrey dumped her because he doesn't have money.
Rex headed to the motel to continue his investigation and went into Cutter's room. Aubrey hid; Rex opened the bathroom door and was shocked to find her there with her half-naked "brother." She claimed she'd just come by to chide her bro for sleeping all day and was upset at Rex for barging in on her. Rex was confused and noted that their exchange was weird. Cutter was happy that they were on Clint's trail. Later, Tess and Cutter made plans to meet up. They didn't tell Aubrey, who'd rushed out to placate Joey, or Ford, who wanted Tess to stick around until the judge called. Later, Tess showed up at the motel and greeted Cutter in a sexy outfit. When they kissed, Jessica re-emerged and wondered what she was doing and where she was.
Matthew confronted Clint for all he did to his parents and setting up David, and wondered if he was part of Clint's big plan, too. Matthew explained that his parents and David are on the verge of having Clint arrested for Eddie's murder.
Rex went into another room at the motel and unwittingly walked in on a porno shoot, surprised when they assumed he was the star of the film! Confusion ensued. Rex was introduced to Rick, the porn director, who was eager to get his production of Hold The Pepperoni: IV rolling. Rex found out that they had to reshoot the movie because of the shooting and were actually filming on the night of the crime. Rex asked for the footage from the movie and saw someone exiting the room next door (Eddie's room!) He was shocked by who he saw....
Back at the courthouse, Viki ran into David, who was excited about marrying Dorian and was determined not to let anything ruin it — until he got a phone call. Later, David broke the news that he can't marry Dorian after all...
