OLTL Story Bombshells: Ron Raines Debuts & Revealed To Be Allison Perkins Brother! Jeffrey King's Heel Turn!

This week’s brand new episodes of One Life to Live on Hulu and iTunes are not-to-be-missed as they offer surprise revelations and more! (SPOILER ALERT: if you have not seen this week’s One Life yet, you may not want to read any further!)

In episodes posted yesterday on Soap Monday, # 52 and #53, viewers learn that Corbin Bleu’s character of Jeffrey King is not the good guy he pretends to be, (we first got wind of this when the mysterious tattoo emblem showed up on the bottom of his foot on last week’s episodes). This week, we come to learn  he has been sent to Llanview to help the “Organization” bring down Clint Buchanan (Jerry verDorn)!  In addition, we learn that Jeffrey was not suppose to let Victor Jr. (Trevor St. John)  slip out of town and disappear!

How do we know all this?  Thanks to the arrival of soap opera favorite, Ron Raines (the former Alan Spaulding of Guiding Light) in his new role as Carl Peterson, who is Jeffrey’s benefactor, but much more than that!  He seems to be part of a huge former CIA operative – remember Irene Manning, Victor and Todd’s mom, on ABC’s One Life? And it is Carl who is pulling the strings and has been having Jeffrey do his dirty work …  substituting Clint’s heart pills with another drug that mixed with alcohol will make him appear manic!

But here is how it ties together – or at least starts to! Carl reveals that his sister is Allison Perkins (Barbara Garrick) and why apparently she kidnapped Victor Jr. at the end of the cliffhanger finale of the ABC version of One Life.  Looks like Allison has some help now, and the “Organization” wants to capture both Todd and Victor Jr. and destroy Clint!

Watch a clip from this week’s One Life to Live below, which begins to reveal the sinister plot of Carl Peterson and Jeffrey King!  And make sure to watch this week’s episodes to see a fantastic star turn performance by Jerry verDorn (Clint)!

Let us know,  were you shocked that Jeffrey turned bad? What do you think of Ron Raines character being the brother of the wacky Allison Perkins?  Do you think the story makes sense to you of how it ties in the entire season of One Life to Live and what came before it at the end of it’s ABC run? Weigh-in!

Oh, I completely agree. OLTL is back and on fire. The show may have started slow, but it’s starting to come full circle. I think how the characters are being tied together in this story line is what makes so thrilling to watch. I am so happy to have OLTL back. I know everyone is nervous about all the changes PP has had to do. Remember…they are the ones who were responsible for keeping OLTL and AMC alive. This is the first time two cancelled soaps came back to life on the web. I am sure GL went through theses… Read more »

I haven’t watched OLTL to live in a while but a fellow fan said it was good this week so I will watch. Ron Raines is a soap legend and OLTL is lucky to have him. However, this “organization” storyline falls flat without Trevor St. John. His character is the reason the “organization” came to Llanview in the first place, how can the show explore that without him and for how long? Hope the writing improves and the writers focus on more character driven storylines like AMC.

I can’t comment on OLTL.

or AMC.

but… Ron Raines on Guiding Light…. va va voom sexy! I loved him with Alexandra… and Beth Spaulding.

It’s great to see Ron Raines again and I’m loving the shocking twist of Jeffery being a part of the ‘organization’. I do hope PP can arrange to get Roger Howarth and Trevor St. John back for some more filming in the near future since it seems Todd and Victor are integral to this storyline. Plus, I just miss them both. 🙂

OLTL has really gotten into a good groove lately. The only storyline I don’t care much for is Jack and his teacher. I hope that comes to an end soon.

One Life To Live is back!!! This is the first week I have heavily enjoyed episodes in months. “The Tale of Two Todds” is back in full effect. I hope Victor and Todd come back either for the finale of season one or the opening of season two. OLTL 4Ever!

Looking at Ron’s photo, I thought, I think he used to be on Guiding Light! Yup; that was Alan Spaulding! I miss Guiding Light. I didn’t watch it every day; but, I used to watch it if home, and I enjoyed it, before the budget cuts. I was just saying to someone in the lunch room, yesterday, that I miss “lunch time” daytime tv. I still watch Days and General Hospital.

Blew my mind yesterday. It was nothing I ever expected from Jeffery. If Irene Manning is still alive it would put me into a tail spin. I know in the end the Buchanan’s will win. Great show. So happy to be able to watch it.

Let hope for a short break between “season 1” and “season 2″… or better yet, no break at all !!!

That means that Carl Peterson is the Uncle of Tina!

Bring back Tina (Viki’s sister too). Love all this intrique and tumult.
I wonder if Carl has Victor Lord Sr captured too, and it turns out that he or his father planted the incest memory in his mind, maybe he really was a good guy.

WOW season two is sure to be a great time. Cant wait for it to start!

brian
Guest

Ok… i have watched OLTL since 1978. How does this make Carl Peterson Tina’s uncle ? Tina’s mother is Irene and her father is Victor Lord.

The above article does not connect Irene to Carl other than they both were CIA agents.

OK – sorry I had a brain freeze.

I temporarily got Irene and Alison confused.
( I know they are not the same person – but could they have been sisters?)

Anyway – you are correct. I just got excited about this new turn-of-events.

OMG! I was like WHAT DID HE SAY?!?! and I had to rewind it to hear it again. His sister Allison! WOW. Love it!

Not happy with Jeffrey being a bad guy – but he isn’t all bad, because he looked upset about Matthew.

Jerry is doing a fantastic job as a drunk (and drugged) heartbroken Clint. Can’t wait to see what happens……

This is really good. I love this storyline. It does explain the cliffhanger on ABC and can’t wait to see the season finale next week. He’s going to shake things up in Llanview, can’t wait to see him pair up with Viki or Dorian and go against Clint. This is exciting, hope we don’t have to wait too long for Season 2. I’m also curious if we’ll see Allison Perkins in the finale, or Victor. Can’t wait, so glad I continued to watch this show online. The storylines are good and very entertaining.

I love love love the talent on OLTL but I really do not care for espionage and intelligence plot lines. They tend to begin strong, go over the top, and become so convolutedand well, I prefer more humanity-based stories dealing with families, social strata, economy, dreams achieved and lost… I miss romance. There does not seem to be enough.

mgb357
Guest
mgb357

I think the producers are taking the right path.
Romances take time to develop and sometimes get too melodramatic.

Beside – the classic romance of Blair and Todd are still apart of this storyline.

But gotta get the younger audience – and this storyline will impact all of the characters.

This is fantastic. I knew the circular tattoo had to have something to do with the organization Irene headed. I am just thrilled and on the edge of my seat as usual. Can’t wait to see what comes next. Is that nut job Allison going to show up again?

The scenes between Viki and Clint in Llanfair and in his office were terrific.

Love it! But with all this CIA stuff, someone needs to be there to help Bo figure it all out and save the day…………………….enter John McBain!! I also hope Jeffrey does not turn out to be the bad guy, maybe a double agent, I really liked him until we found he had the emblem on his heal!

Love that the show is staying somewhat connected to what happened on ABC. If we can’t have more former cast members back this is the next best thing. Love this storyline so far and cannot wait for the finale next week.

I hope the surprise visit by a fan favorite that Michael mentioned last week is someone who hasn’t been on the show yet. Very curious to see who it is.

The show was terrific again this week. JVD’s acting was spot on. I feel so bad for Clint. The Clint and Viki scenes were really good especially the one in Clint’s office where Viki took the alcohol from him. The Jeffrey reveal was a great twist. In my opinion, the show is doing fine without Starr and John. There are so many other talented actors who are not overrated.

Definitely more into OLTL in these last few weeks than its not-so-great online preview. For me though…even though I’m getting into it more and more and look forward to seeing it…there’s still something that’s off. The characters don’t relate to each other the way they used to…Vicki doesn’t come off the same…in the ABC show she was oozing warmth and maternal and “hominess”…this Vicki is much harder/colder. Don’t like her as much in this version. Feel like even though a lot of the originals aren’t back they should be mentioned; no mention still of Jessica…Natalie told Vicki she was dating… Read more »

Really?
Vicki has alot on her plate. Don’t you think… She is showing remarkable restraint considering her situation …… with Clint and the Banner and Todd and Victor and 3 of her 4 children are out of town.

She seems more human to me (love anything that Erika does).

Hey maybe we will see a re-occurance of an alter (Niki, Jean….) who has a connection to the tattoo organization – and it turns out she is the one in charge!

Keep OLTL alive. Hopefully Season two will increase to four episodes per week.

Vicky’s always had a lot on her plate! Half her children were always gone, she had multiple personalities, divorce, breast cancer, daddy issues, her daughter’s multiple personalities, her brother’s death, her brother’s return, her children’s divorces…shalll I go on? LOL. Yet, she “oozed” warmth, a maternal instinct and love. She was the go-to person. She was the “heart” of the show. Don’t feel that way about her now; especially with the lack of emotion when Victor returned and her hard-nosed reaction to Clint’s help, etc. We never had an hour of OLTL on ABC…when you factor in the commercials the… Read more »

I agree with some of what you said but it is difficult to “ooze” warmth and get to the grip of the story when you only have an hour a week to do it. When it was on ABC we had an hour a day for the characters to act natural. I love OLTL and I’m not going to complain about the length of the episodes because I just want it to continue but I am saying it is hard to give every character their due time to emote life feelings in such a short time frame. Hopefully as it… Read more »

I have one question to this storyline…wasn’t Margaret Cochran or Allison Perkins who is the mother of Sam Manning?

mgb357
Guest
mgb357

Margaret was the mother of Sam. My memory is that she drowned in a lake at the hands of Todd/Victor (TSJ). Todd/Victor was going to be executed for her death. I forget why he was freed. Could it be that Margaret is alive also?

Christy
Guest
Christy

she didn’t drown. She was an expert swimmer. She was in cahoots with Spencer Truman, to take down Todd (trevor) so he could have Blair. Margaret was discovered alive in Thailand, by David Vickers… while at the very same time Todd was convicted of her murder. Todd went to death row and was in the death chamber and just had been killed when John McBain broke into the room, with Margaret Cochran on his arm. Ironically, Spencer was there to “support” Blair while Todd was being put to death, and had to resuscitate Todd. Their baby (Todd & Margaret’s) was… Read more »

was sorta surprised about Jefferey’s involvement with the odd tat club, but not surprised that his “sponsor” is a bad guy. I had figured he would be, but thought maybe Jefferey didn’t know it. Disappointed that he does. and what a twist that the crazy guy is related to the crazy Allison! but my question that remains to be answered is WHY? Why are they after Todd & Victor? You know if must be something to do with Irene and possibly Victor Sr. Todd & Victor have enough problems, they don’t need this constantly keeping them in trouble, without any… Read more »
