One Life To Live Recaps
OLTL Week of March 7, 2011
At St. Ann's, Marty stopped John from leaving, saying there's something he needs to know about Liam when Viki arrived to see Dr. Levin about Jessica. Marty surmised that Tess has returned due to all the recent drama.
Natalie was stunned to realize that it was Tess, not Jessica holding baby
Ryder at Foxy Roxy's. Nat refused to let Tess leave and they played a bit of tug of war with the infant until Liam started crying. Nat tended to her own child while Tess ran off with Ryder. Brody arrived; Nat panicked and was thrown to hear that Tess and Ford are married. She was eager to help in whatever way she can.
At Buenos Dias Café, Cristian was stunned to hear that the guy Blair is hung up on is Téa's brother, who was also acquaintance from Cris'schildhood. Cris told Blair that Tomas left his family quite mysteriously when he was younger. Meanwhile, Tomas made a phone call in French regarding Todd. Tomas stopped in to say hi to Blair and had an awkward reunion with Cristian. Blair was pleased to hear that Tomas is staying in Llanview. After Tomas left, Cris warned Blair to be careful, citing his reputation for ditching people he loves.
Todd threatened to kill Téa for tying him up and gagging him at the cabin. Téa wasn't scared and held a butcher's knife on Todd until he promised to leave Nate and Dani alone and agreed to consult her with all of his parenting decisions from now on. She threatened to leave if he didn't comply. He swore to be good. When Téa let him go, he tricked her and pinned her down. She was outraged and rattled. "I'll see you in hell!" she seethed and then they tore each other's clothes off and had angry makeup sex. After, Téa mentioned that Todd's been "off" recently and wondered what's going on. He said he's afraid of losing everyone he loves and hates seeing his daughters growing up so fast. They agreed they don't want to lose each other and laughed about blaming the trashed cabin on the kids.
Starr came home and caught Langston up on what happened at the cabin. Lang confirmed that Tess is back and hitched to Ford. Starr was excited about having the mix up between her and James behind them and looked forward to the possibility of finally being with him. Lang wasn't so thrilled about her own situation. Meanwhile, Ford admitted to James that he's only with Tess so he can get custody of his son. Ford felt awful about what he's doing to Langston, who was outraged that he pushed her aside for a wackadoo like
Back at St. Ann's, Viki got word that Tess took Ryder from Natalie. Viki
tried to tell John that Nat loves him and not Brody. She advised him to make things work with regard to Liam. John said good-bye to Marty, apologized and left. Marty noted that things are working out, but said it's too bad John's going to lose his baby in the process.
At the Ford apartment, Tess shooed worried Brody away and told him to get a lawyer if he wants to get the baby back. Then she left her new hubby in charge of the baby. Ford was overwhelmed with daddy duty and recruited James to help him change Ryder's diaper. James called Starr for help. She showed up to take care of the baby with James, showing him how to change the diaper. Tess entered in a towel and flirted with James, much to Starr's chagrin. Meanwhile Ford went to appeal to Langston and brought her flowers. He promised to make things right and let her in on his plan.
Brody returned to Foxy Roxy's, where he held Liam and shared a moment with Nat, which John spied.
Gigi arrived at Rodi's, where she found John drinking. He was surly and had been there all night long. Gigi wasn't sympathetic to John or his drinking
binge and defended Natalie's actions. John was upset that Gigi knew the
truth all along as well. So, he fired her.
At La Boulaie, Dorian told Kelly she picked the wrong guy to get involved
with to get over Joey. She worried that Kelly has real feelings for John.
Dorian seemed distracted by Cutter as she glanced at an old photo of her
with David. Meanwhile, Cutter announced to Joey over breakfast that he's
staying in Llanview. Aubrey wasn't pleased and bickered with Cutter about
their plan to nail Clint. Cutter demanded that Aubrey get her hands on the
jump drive that would expose everything about them. Aubrey was miffed that
Cutter also had his sights set on seducing Kelly. Later, Cutter arrived at
La Boulaie, where Kelly was stunned that he'd brought flowers for Dorian,
not her. Dorian called Cutter out on going after her money. He, in turn,
surmised she's still hung up on her ex. To prove he's serious, Cutter kissed
her. They broke away from the buss. Cutter told her to call him after she
burns the photo of David to prove she's really over him and ready to move on
with someone new.
At school, Matthew read a story in The Banner (on his iPad!) about Eddie's
killer still being on the loose. Destiny approached and wanted to make sure
that Darren didn't hear about their recent kiss. Matthew promised he'd keep
mum. He showed Des the article. She wondered how or why he cares about
At the Moroccan prison, Bo called Nora with an update. He was determined to
find David. Bo was stunned to see that Rex had followed him halfway across
the world, uninvited. Rex explained that he was on the next flight out of
Llanview and is ready to help find David. Bo was still sore about Rex's lies
and didn't want Balsom's help. Back in Llanview, Clint tried to get Nora to
give him details about Bo's sudden trip. She refused and continued to call
him out for his involvement in Eddie's death. He reminded her that there is
The prison warden told Bo and Rex there isn't anyone resembling David there
and started to kick them out until Rex saved them by citing Amnesty
International laws. He then presented fake credentials to get them inside.
Bo was impressed. They went to David's cell but it was empty. Bo saw a crude
drawing of Dorian on the wall and knew David had been there.
At Asa's, Joey looked at the newspaper and recognized Eddie's mug, suddenly
realizing that he recalled seeing Clint with the man before his death.
Later, Aubrey tried to break into Clint's safe to score the footage of her
and Cutter, to no avail. When Clint showed up, she flat out asked him for
it. He scoffed and said the jump drive will stay there unless she tells Joey
herself that she's a gold-digger who's just after his money.
Joey went to see Nora at Buenos Dias Caf. She congratulated him on his
marriage and they caught up. Joey asked her about Eddie's case. She
confirmed his suspicions that Clint is involved. After Joey left, Nora was
excited that Joey remembered his dad's connection to Eddie. Nora also told
Matthew that they think Clint's at fault and it's only a matter of time
before all the pieces come together.
Joey came home and told Aubrey that they're building a case against Clint in
Eddie's death. He surmised the proof was in his pop's safe, so he broke in —
and was caught red-handed by Clint himself. Meanwhile, the prison warden
called Clint with an update on Bo's visit to Morocco and assured Clint that
no one will find David. Bo and Rex sweet-talked a guard to get more info at
the prison. Bo left the guy his business card.
Back at the bar, Kelly stopped by to comfort John. They laughed about being
on ACCESS LLANVIEW and quickly fell into a kiss.
John and Kelly went to the storage room at Rodi's to have sex, where Jeff, the new waiter, spied them. Kelly pulled away when she had thoughts of making out with Joey there the night before the botched double wedding. Tomas and Téa showed up looking to buy lunch. Meanwhile, Natalie saw Gigi filling out an application at the café and asked what's going on. Nat was stunned that John had fired her and was overwhelmed with guilt for the Tess situation and Gigi getting canned. Gigi comforted her. Nat went to confront John.
At Asa's mansion, Clint caught Joey trying to break in. Joey said he's looking for evidence about Eddie. Clint copped to talking to Eddie about Inez and was stunned when Joey said Nora thinks Clint's a suspect in the crime; Clint maintained his innocence. He then told Joey he can view the flash drive if he wants, much to Aubrey's chagrin. She knew Clint was just trying to out her relationship with Cutter so she talked Joey out of looking at it. Joey destroyed it; Clint threatened to kick him out so he left.
"Well played," Clint smirked to Aubrey.
At school, Jack taunted Shane and forced him to hand over money that he'd
collected for a raffle. Shane told the principal. Meanwhile, Blair summoned
Todd to tell him to back off with regard to Starr. She warned him that she
and Tomas both have their eye on him if he makes any more outrageous moves.
Later, they got a call from the school about Jack's little scheme. They met
up with Gigi at the school, where they got the full scoop on what happened
between Jack and Shane. Todd defended Jack, who planted the money in Shane's
locker and framed him for stealing it.
Tomas advised his sister to leave Todd again. She promised that she has
everything under control and said he can go back to Paris. He announced he's
saying; she assumed it was for Blair. Téa advised her brother to steer clear
of her because she's afraid Blair will get hurt. They bickered and Tomas
Back at Rodi's, Natalie walked in on John and Kelly making out. Tensions
flared. Kelly split. Nat railed at John for firing Gigi. He surmised Nat got
the idea to lie about the paternity of the baby because Gigi, who also did
it with Shane, gave it to her. Nat called John out on trying to hurt her and
told him to go to hell. "I'm already there," he said and started drinking
At home, Blair interrogated Jack about what happened at school. Todd
supported the teen, much to Blair's dismay. After, Jack hatched another
bullying plan to make Shane pay. Meanwhile, Shane got suspended. Jack texted
him: "Talk and you're dead" just as Gigi asked what's going on. Shane lied that he had taken the money.
Todd was on his way out when he ran into Tomas coming to visit Blair.
Viki caught Clint up on the situation with Tess having custody of Ryder.
Clint was outraged; Viki discouraged him from going after Ford again. She
was insistent that they focus on getting Jessica to St. Ann's. Meanwhile,
the baby hung out with Ford at the café; Langston swooned and was
understanding of why Ford did what he did when she saw him being a good
father. Ford explained he has a plan. His attorney stopped by and was
hesitant to draw up paperwork for Ford that would send Tess to St. Ann's.
Ford assured him that she is a definite danger to herself and others.
Tess tried to seduce James, who was fresh out of the shower. She pulled the
towel off of him just as Starr arrived to bring some supplies for Ryder.
James was forced to explain; Tess taunted Starr, who reminded herself that
Tess is insane.
Blair broke up a near-fight between Todd and Tomas. Both vowed to protect
what is theirs. Todd stormed out. Blair warned Tomas that her ex is quite
possessive. Tomas told Blair about Téa's concerns but asked her out anyway.
Natalie told Brody that John's having an affair with Kelly and worried that
John wants to have a relationship with her. They bonded over their troubles
with their other halves. After, Nat freaked and rushed to tell Brody that
there's something wrong with baby Liam.
At Rodi's, John continued to drink. Téa tried to talk some sense into him,
saying that if Todd can forgive her then John can certainly forgive Nat. He
refused, saying that there's nothing that ties them together now, especially
because Liam is Brody's baby. Later, Todd told Téa he's having her brother
investigated and possibly deported; she advised him to get a grip and
mentioned that Tomas might be investigating him, too.
Viki and Téa hatched a plan to get Tess in St. Ann's by working with Ford,
but had to ask Clint for his support and requested that he be lenient with
Ford's visitation rights to see Ryder. Back at the caf, Langston was happy
to hear that Starr and James are finally together.
Ford came home where the landlord, who'd come by for rent, was being
"entertained" by Tess. Tess called Ford out on going behind her back to get
her committed. She reminded him that he won't be able to pay his rent or see
his son without her help. She told him to play his cards right if he wants
to get access to Ryder's money, pointing out that Jessica is in charge of
all the baby's finances. Later, the authorities arrived to retrieve Tess.
Todd sidled up to the bar at Rodi's and ordered a drink from John. They
talked about Tomas; Todd was convinced that Delgado is hiding something and
(shock!) recruited McBain to do some digging. John wasn't keen on the idea,
pointing out that he's a cop, not a P.I. They argued; John refused to do
Todd a favor. As Todd was about to leave, an unseen assassin targeted him
with a gun.
Dorian paid Charlie a visit to see if he would come clean about sleeping
with Echo. Charlie told her to back off, saying she doesn't know what's
going on. Dorian berated him for cheating on Viki. Dorian demanded that he
end things with Echo lest she come clean to Viki.
Echo showed up at the carriage house, thinking she could spend some quality
time with Rex and Shane, but Gigi informed her that Rex is out of town on
business. Gigi and Echo shared a pizza; Shane was upstairs doing homework.
Gigi left to get her book at Rodi's, while Echo hung out with Shane.
Meanwhile, Bo and Rex continued their search of David in Morocco. Bo was
frustrated and worried that Clint might have ordered to have David killed.
Rex was determined to be there for Bo and keep hunting. Then the guard from
the prison showed up with a lead on David's whereabouts. The guard explained
that David had called Dorian to explain what had happened to him but she
didn't believe her.
Ford changed his tune about sending Tess to St. Ann's, and when they came to
take her away, he refused to let her go. He ripped up the paperwork and sent
his lawyer away. Tess was delighted. Meanwhile, at the caf, Langston
excitedly waited for Ford's plan to go into action so they'd both be free of
Tess for good. She did, however, worry about getting too attached to Ryder
should Jessica return and take the baby back from Ford.
Outside of Rodi's, someone took aim at Todd. John joined Manning in the
parking lot to give him keys that they left at the bar. John spied the laser
on Todd's body and yelled for him to take cover as shots rang out. They hid
behind a Dumpster. After John saved his rival’s life, he wondered who was
after Todd and cracked, "That line to kill you is as twice as long as mine."
More shots were fired. John and Todd were trapped; Todd dropped his keys.
John took a look at the roof to see who was there; Todd, curiously, wondered
if Téa was up there. John popped off a few shots and heard a scream. Gigi
had arrived to fetch her books and was caught in the crossfire.
Clint, Téa and Viki agreed to be a united front so they could take care of
Tess and baby Ryder. They opened the door to Ford's apartment just as the
lawyer was departing. Tess and Ford were also a united front, much to Viki's
dismay. Téa presented Ford with a deal involving custody of Ryder and
granting generous access to his son if he agrees to send Tess away. Viki
promised Ford that Clint has agreed to everything and won't change the
stipulated rules. Tess tried to dissuade Ford from signing the agreement;
Téa countered. He was torn but sided with Tess and kicked the others out.
Langston arrived and was none too pleased to see Tess was still there.
Back in Morocco, the guard hinted that Dorian was taken in a van by a guy
named Olanov. "As in Alex Olanov?" Bo queried. Meanwhile, Clint called Alex
and was happy to hear their plan had worked. Bo and Rex headed to St.
Blaise's Island.... Charlie told Echo he can't leave Viki and pulled her
into a kiss.... Todd made a run for the car and was shot.
