Actually she shouldve played Jessica …Dusky couldve been one of her alters! Meanwhile this overexposed Shelter seems more like a Jersy Shore hangout…give me back my One Life To Live!

I was thinking the same thing about her playing Jessica! For some reason, she reminds me of Erin Torpey. I also like Bree Williamson’s Jessica as well. Who in the world is “Dusky”? One Life to Live, please do not waste my time with bringing on new characters that have no connection to the show. My patience for these kind of decisions is wearing very thin. Why not bring Trevor St. John back and finish his storyline?

Well for one Trevor St John is currently working on a movie he signed to be in, so cannot be in two places at the same time. As for Dusky, TPTB can just send her and Cutter off to parts unknown as far as I am concerned!!!

Singer?? In what universe? A singer sings. Lyrics, like notes, like music. She talks, can’t she sing. She’s awful. White Girl Wasted, what a lovely message to send, her parents must be so proud. 😉

This is not the OLTL I love. I waited a long time, and was very excited to see OLTL back, but it is not good. We need more veteran actors and places we remember like Rodie’s. And why do all the exterior doors open out? It is awkward ad the actors have trouble with them.

I’ve noticed that about the doors too. I thought perhaps it had to with the foundations of the sets also being used for AMC. Not so. The AMC doors open outward too. Very odd.

In my opinion, OLTL was a classy show with some edge and humor to it. I like and enjoy the old guard and am open to new characters and storylines, that’s why the show was on for 43 years. But these sleezy V.I.P room people just do a disservice to the show. I will take Lindsay and R.J. anyday.

I agree.. the show seems so much more trashy.. hate that Dani is drinking and drugs.. the swearing and flipping people off is really messed up.. thats NOT what I was hoping that would come back when the show came back.. I am VERY disappointed!!

The song was not my cup of tea either. But, if it gets younger people to tune in and become fans of the show, so be it. Hopefully, they can integrate the character into the story lines.

OLTL needs to go back to its roots. Recast McBain and bring on more Buchanans, Roxy, Nigel and more police drama. Bring back Rodis and the BonJour as well as the Palace. We need more veteran characters and more OLTL landmarks.

Would love to see Max Holden and Blair together again. Also recast Starr and bring her home, too.

Not impressed at all! I was hoping we would only see her that one time. Wish I could fast forward her scenes on hulu!!!

NOT impressed. ARE YOU listening prospect park? The club scenes HAVE to go, the writers need to concentrate on the more mature characters who can actually act and get away from this Teen scene that is so not working – I think enough people have written on here that this is not the One Life to Live that they remember and love – and while some changes are acceptable, they are deviating too far from what made OLTL the iconic soap show that is always was.

Kayla

With alienating a younger audience the show is sure to last forever right? WRONG!!!! When those more mature stars die off then what?

Johnny

Well, right after I posted what I did it was announced that a New head writing team had been hired. So, I don’t think I was too far off the track. I am not saying that they should concentrate totally and completely on older characters played by the more mature actors (although they are usually more proficient at acting from seasoning) but if you think these young “teen scenes” showing kids drinking excessively and playing “let’s strip” games and the camera showing “stills” of Matthew posing in a provocative manner – if anyone thinks that will keep One Life to… Read more »

nice to see 99% of us don’t like the Shelter crappy scenes…. what a waste of Blair!

give the young adults better scenes and the younger viewers will be hooked… but watching young adults sitting around and drinking and swearing

well you could watch that in a lot of places… even the mall!

bring back capricorn, Roady’s, the Vega brothers, Rex, LIndsey, RJ… bring back more of the great writing OLTL used to have!

This is horrible. Last time I heard singing that bad the person was actually wasted. I hope we are not going to be subjected to more.

‘That’s A Wrap’ For Dynasty’s Elizabeth Gillies & Adam Huber As They Share Farewells

The fifth and final season of CW’s Dynasty is currently playing out with the series finale to air in the early fall.

However, filming on the show wrapped this past week for series star Elizabeth Gillies (Fallon) and her on-screen husband, Adam Huber (Liam).  Each of them took to their Instagrams to share heartfelt goodbyes and ‘thank you’s’ for the journey they traveled as part of the reboot of the classic ABC primetime soap opera with its own twist.

Huber shared his thoughts, when he expressed: “That’s a wrap!! When I got the call in 2017 that I was going to be flying out to Atlanta to join the show DYNASTY for a few episodes I had no idea what it would turn into. 4 years of my life and 84 episodes later is what happened. I am beyond grateful for this show. This is the first time I’ve ever really been apart of something like this. I’ve learned a lot. I’ve cried a lot. And I’ve made friendships that will last a lifetime.

A huge thank you to anyone and everyone who was with me on this journey. Thank you to my friends and family for your non stop love and support. My manager and agents who are absolute rockstars. The crew that wakes up day after day working lonnnng hours so we can have a finished product. The writers, directors and producers for making this show the success that it is. The casting director for saying “I think I found our Liam” The entire cast for being so welcoming from the first day I stepped foot on set. The day players, extras, stand ins, all of you!!

And gigantic thank you to all the fans!!! Thank you for staying with us the whole time during this wild ride. Without you watching and binging on whatever platform you watch the show on, we would have not been able to bring you 5 seasons and 108 episodes of DYNASTY craziness. Thank you so much. From the bottom of my heart. This has been an experience I will never forget! 🖤Ps…new episode tonight!! I hope you enjoy the rest of the season! It’s going to be a lot of fun!”

Gillies, simply brought out her inner-Fallon with her Instagram post which said, “Every day, I take one man’s dirt and turn it into diamonds. And digging up insider info is even easier when they assume you work for the airline, instead of owning the plane. Bon Voyage, Fallon 🥂”

Elizabeth’s co-stars were quick to heap praise on the talented actress/singer/director (she directed the two most recent episodes of the series). Rafael de La Fuente who plays Sammy Jo, expressed: ‘What a gift for me to get to work with you for five years. Forever a fan, forever family.”

Pop superstar, Arianna Grande, a longtime friend, and Broadway co-star with Gillies in the musical 13, posted: “Oh my.congratulations, my Liz, on completing this massive and magnificent chapter with Fallon.  she is / you are utterly spectacular. !!!!!!!!! love youuu. sm.”

You can check out their farewell posts below.

So, sad to know that Liz and Adam have wrapped their run as the fifth and final season of Dynasty is coming to a close? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
