One Life to Live's Fourth New Episode! Tea Tells Victor Jr. About Their Baby!

Courtesy/TOLN

Courtesy/T"OLN

Holy Moly!  Today’s fourth new episode of One Life to Live on Hulu and iTunes, in our opinion, was the best of the first week of action in Llanview!

First, we got the long-awaited scene between Tea and Victor Jr. where she finally is able to tell him, she lost their baby, and … that Todd had a hand in switching their baby for another! Oh-oh!  And how great was Florencia Lozano (Tea) on today’s episode? How quietly contained but filled with so much rage is Victor Jr, played so stirringly by Trevor St. John?

And if that is enough, we got to see some great scenes between Kassie DePaiva and Roger Howarth as Blair and Todd! Great on-screen chemistry doesn’t go away!  Then there was the classic Viki (Erika Slezak) and Dorian (Robin Strasser) feud really kicking into high gear, because now Dorian is about to set something in motion to payback Viki for her bringing Dorian’s political scandal to light!

We also got to see some of the development of the working relationship between Viki and Jeffrey King (Corbin Bleu)! We have to say, we see where it’s going and we liked it!  And then there is the open relationship that Rama (Shenaz Treasury) proposed to Vimal (Nick Choski), which he seemed to accept!  Finally, there is a great cliffhanger at the end! And now we will have to wait till next Monday for an all-new episode!  So hang tight!

After the jump watch today’s One Life to Live! Let us know what you thought of the Tea and Victor Jr. scenes, and the rest of the episode!

In ONE week the new OLTL has covered more ground than ABC did in a month, or months! It’s great. It seems like the new writing team wants to clear the decks of all the messed up stuff ABC left hanging at the end. The new producers seem to understand and LISTEN to the fans in ways ABC never did. It proves just how much ABC didn’t care about soaps or their fans.

Just rewatched an old OLTL episode where Shane held Jack at gun point in the grave yard. (LOVE Jack peeing his pants)

After rewatching this episode I have just ONE question….. HOW the HECK did they do an autopsy on Victor…(They even had a bullet to rule out Shane and Rex’s gun) So HOW could they get that bullet outa Victor and not find out that he was NOT dead???

Anyway I am still ECSTATIC that TSJ is back. Whoo HOOOO!!!!!!!

TSJ and FL haven’t lost their chemistry whatsoever. Today was a mix of sexiness with their hot love scene and sadness when Victor found the nursery. Kudos to Flo and Trevor.

They keep saying that these web soaps are going to be sexier, edgier, whatever. Well, Victor and Tea were pretty darn hot and sexy on network television! If they’re any hotter on the web than they were on TV, then it’s going to be like watching HBO or something! lol

Tea and Victor were stimulating’ HOT…. oye… it’s not even the “profanity” that surprises me…. what did was Angie… LOL… and she even revealed… she was the one that wrote the parole board that Dr. David was eligible… LOL. I sincerely hope the writers.. draw from this electric twosome…. friendship is one thing… respect for the medical field being what it is…. and adversaries? these two real big. i’m instantly smitten with this “unexpected” bonding… if you will… Angie and David Hayward….

sorry wen’t from one soap to the other…

Victor… is still coming down to earth. his showing us that his loss of Victor Jr… is volcanoe….we can only imagine how these two formidable talents… Victor and Todd… will become.

the first thought that came to mind… ie: stand offs… Ie: Todd and Victor…

was imagining…. Adam and Palmer….

that’s how love i’ve watched soaps.

but.. these two… deliver big.

This was the best episode of the week, not only because of all t he action, but because we also got to see so many of our favorites together again. Can’t wait til Monday!

PS, It was nice seeing Vimal back today as well.

Tea broke my heart when she told Victor about the baby. Florencia Lozano is super as usual. I love seeing Tea and Victor together. And Victor’s quiet rage building as he learns of Todd’s part in the tragedy. It is such a relief to have Trevor St. John back. Todd had better get out of town fast. Victor is coming for him. Victor is coming for him. Blair’s disgust with Todd was palpable. I loved Todd’s admission that he’s a lousy excuse for a husband and father. Blair and Todd are wonderful together as always. Rama and Vimal are so… Read more »

Would like to see Vimal show up at Shelter with Aubrey(that was her name, i think, the one who was once with Cutter?) if they could get the actress back to play her! Id love to see both Ramas and Cutters reaction!

I agree, Kim. I want Vimal to show up with someone he seems interested in, to see how long she likes this “open marriage” pact. 😉

I have to admit though, Trevor and Erika [not Tea/Flo] are what make this show for me. All the other [many] characters I love are just icing on the cake. 🙂

I forgot to mention the other day that it was delightful to see Nigel!

Todds’ honest admission to Blair…

in all honesty…. RH is so combortable.. in the OLTL setting… he’s on fire with Blair….

his palpable… penetrating… presence… is not to be denied… no matter what you think.

it was just as electric as Victor and Tea…

imagine the sparks and fire these two couples delve.

I love TSJ… and I am glad the time spent at Shelter has been minimized… but this show should be called Angry Lives to Live. Everyone is angry, or yelling or in angst. We see so much time tied up in looking at rage filled faces with no dilalogue. I now see why the picture wuth Blair and Todd with the 10 had them looking so angry… it’s because that’s all they do… Todd has said so few lines he’s just looking angry at whom ever he is in a scene with. There are so few laughs or smiles on… Read more »

I’ll tell you what’s missing, Heidi: the writing! Not the story, which it’s too soon to tell, but the dialogue, which is always the make or break of an episode. And so far, it’s broken. I realize this was all rushed into production, but serious writing staff changes need to be made and fast. Once the novelty of the return wears off, it’s good strong writing that will keep viewers around. Or, to put it into terms the reboot will understand: “Shitty, shit, asshole, shit, shit, shit.”. I remember back when dialogue was clever, not shocking and, worst of all!,… Read more »

I can’t believe how much I love this show – the writing, acting, lighting, sets and music are top notch and more akin to a primetime show. It’s surreal to have this show back with everything I’ve always loved about OLTL minus much of the camp, which while it had its charms, could be kind of ott at times. Thank you Prospect Park!

I love the chemistry between Florencia and Trevor they are AWESOME. I think it is interesting on how intreverted Victor seems nowadays. I cant wait to find out what he went thru. I feel bad for TEA cuz she wants to help him so much but he is just shut down. Florencia can say alot with just a look- when she is on screen you cant take ur eyes off of her cuz not only does she act with words and actions but with facial expressions that say more that words. I also enjoy how Trevor portays Victor so mellow… Read more »

I think Victor changed when he found out who he really was–Victor and not Todd. To me, that seems like that was the turning point for him. Then, whatever he went through the last 19 months has just affected him even more. It’s going to be an interesting story, Victor’s a very interesting and complex character with a whole bunch of layers.

emlons
Guest

Yes I agree. Victor didn’t have anytime to come to terms with who he really was b4 he was killed/kidnapped. I can’t wait to see how Trevor and Florencia play it out – I know it’s going to be FANTASTIC. Like Tea told Victor b4 he was shot, she fell in love with Him (the Man he was at that moment and time – it doesn’t matter what his name was, the name doesn’t make the Man)

right on… love you… Tea and Victor say and DO so much…. without uttering a word… the ambiance… the unquestioned love… and understood being, these two know.

There is a lot of great stuff in the works, especially the Tea/Victor/Todd complexities. However, I really enjoyed the scene between Viki and Jeffrey. It perfectly captured what is happening today in the 24-hour news cycle and social media. Jeffrey wants to rush everything while Viki wants to verify, then publish. You only have to look at the market dip last week after an erroneous tweet said there was an explosion at the White House to see how quickly false info spreads. It was also pretty funny when Viki scolded Jeffrey for sitting on her desk and talking back to… Read more »

I am ridiculously happy having OLTL back! I’ve missed it. So far the acting (‘nach) is great as is the writing. My only worry is that with the 4 day a week half hour episode formula the humor I so enjoyed in the past may be difficult to include in so little time. One of my first memories as a toddler is the opening sequence of The Edge Of Night. Soaps have always been a part of my world . One of the things which made OLTL stand out from the rest was the inside jokes. Please find a way… Read more »

No episodes on Fridays because traditionally on broadcast TV they were always the lowest rated episodes. Why bother?

The ONLY problem I have with the show right now besides the awkward episode on Tuesday where there Tea was the person who was shocked by Victor’s reappearance is that they either need to tell TSJ to speak up or enhance the sound.

Holly
Guest
Holly

I agree! The sound is a little messed up. It’s like I can hear them walking around and their feet hitting the ground fine, but then some of the talking I can hardly hear at all, especially Victor and Tea. So I watch with the sound all the way up on my laptop, but then it’s too loud at other times. They need to fix that!

I agree! i had to watch some of it over to hear what they are saying!

Glad to see these messages, because I thought it was just my laptop sound card. I have to listen at max volume and still miss a lot of dialogue.

I was ecstatic to see someone mention that they had CC, which helped on Thursday.

Since others are also having a problem, maybe they will do something to improve the sound. Here’s hoping!

Patrick
Guest
Patrick

I think TSJ… is a lil’ shell-shocked… and simply needs to find his bairings…

the indication that he’s fuming… tremoring… is clue to his intent with Todd.

you hear your wife… share what happend to your son… and this is all

victor’s show to relent… his not being their in the first place, for his wife and child.

When Tea kept calling the baby “Victor Jr.” I was thinking, but his dad is Victor Jr., the baby is Victor III (or Little Victor). I couldn’t help but think of calling the baby “Victor Jr. Jr.” like on Friends when Phoebe’s brother named his son “Frank Jr. Jr.” lol

But, it was a great episode, I loved Victor and Tea; well, actually, I always love Victor and Tea!

Am I the only one who finds Flo’s Tea to be a screeching, sniveling, practically soul-sucking character? omg, I think anyone would agree to anything she says just to get her to shut up! I never, ever condoned Todd switching the baby on GH, but Tea’s reaction to seeing Todd with the baby in his arms (who he was about to give back to Sam, by the way) was so over the top, so can’t-get-a-word-in-edgewise, that it was almost out of Todd’s hands whether to give Tea the baby or not. So now, with the reboot of OLTL, I guess… Read more »

I love these two. it’s a little dry… ie: Victor… but.. hey.. he’s amongst the living… after being shackled. i’ve never seen two head to head… mind for matter… beings… battling bit for bit… equals – someone’s going down… this should be big… for the time Todd’s on… if the writing is up… Read more »

hmm, I just don’t see Tea as that deep and introspective at all. I see her as a screeching, wears-her-heart-on-her-sleeve banshee…..and not just with this reboot of OLTL. I’ve always felt that way about her. Oh well! She’s only a part of the show. 🙂

I agree that there were sparks in their first scene together but I was hooked during the New Year’s Eve episode when Victor was supposed to be in love with Marty but was holding Tea’s hand while talking to Tea. I kept thinking, for a guy who is not in love with Tea, he sure likes touching her. I don’t even think it was intentional, I think that Trevor and Florencia are just really comfortable with each other… Read more »

I have loved seeing the wonderful performances by Roger Howarth on my screen and Vicki, David and Dorian. The new actors are doing a great job too. My only complaint is I hate seeing everyone give Todd a hard time, but I figure it is probably necessary for new viewers to get a feel for Todd and understand his history without having watched the show for years so I am tolerating that part for now.

This show was so touching I cryed along with Tea . She lost Victor (or so she though)
She was so thrilled to be having his baby and then when she lost him too it was to much so for her to handle. I think its good that now they can morn together.

All My Children and Guiding Light Vet, Gil Rogers Passes Away

Gil Rogers, who played one of the all-time most dastardly villains in soaps on All My Children and was the on-screen father to the one and only Reva Shayne (Kim Zimmer) on Guiding Light, has died at age 87.

News came via his daughter, Amanda Rogers on her Facebook page, relating that Gil passed away on March 2nd.

The actor had played Tad (Michael E. Knight) and Jenny’s (Kim Delaney) father, Ray Gardner on All My Children from 1977-1978 making multiple appearance though 2001, then later as Hawk Shayne on Guiding Light from 1985-1992 making multiple appearance through 2009.

Gil also appeared on Another World, Search for Tomorrow and The Doctors.

In her post, Amanda wrote: “Gil Rogers died this morning. As you all know, my dad was awesome. He was my best friend, confidant, mentor and just an awesome dad. He came to pick me and  Charlotte Whitaker Zdanowski up at clubs at 2AM in our teens to keep us safe, and drank bourbon with me every day since moving out here 2 years ago. He was welcoming and kind, funny and gregarious, a shameless flirt and a fierce protector. He loved his dinners with grandkids and endured animated movies and discussions about pokemon. And I miss him so terribly already. He died in his sleep, without pain or fear. I am so grateful to have had such a great father and to have spent these past 2 years with him every day.”

Check out this vintage scene below from All My Children where Ray played by Rogers blows up the Martin house.

Chris Harrison In First Interview Since ‘Bachelor’ Controversy Says He Wants To Be Back as Host; But GMA’s Michael Strahan Says Apology was a “Surface Response”

Thursday’s Good Morning America featured the highly-publicized first interview with ‘Bachelor’ franchise host and executive producer, Chris Harrison, since he stepped away from the show following his controversial remarks on current Bachelor contestant Rachel Kirkconnell, amid the airing of a season that has seen the first-ever Black male lead of the reality series, Matt James.

Speaking with GMA co-host, Michael Strahan, Harrison spoke of remarks he made during his interview with ex-Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay on Extra that sparked the firestorm.

Harrison admitted the words he spoke to Lindsey were “in a manner that perpetuates racism,” adding “I am an imperfect man I made a mistake and I own that. I believe that mistake doesn’t reflect who I am or what I stand for.”

 

The incident began when photos surfaced on social media of Kirkconnell at an Old South-themed party that she attended back in 2018, along with allegations she “liked” many Instagram posts that were racist in nature, and what many viewed as Harrison coming to her defense in this time of what he then called “cancel culture”.

On GMA, Chris expressed: “Antebellum parties are not OK,  Past, present, future, knowing what that represents is unacceptable.”

He also apologized to Lindsay, who had to shut down her Instagram account because of viral vitriol being sent her way over the incident with Harrison, adding this message to the public, “Anyone who is throwing hate towards Rachel Lindsay, please stop. It’s unacceptable.”

Photo: ABC

As to how he is trying to make amends, Harrison shared: “I made a mistake and I own that, Racism, oppression, these are big dynamic problems and they take serious work. I am committed to that work.”  The longtime Bachelor host then announced he is working with race educator Dr. Eric Dyson who has taught him about the idea of “counsel, not cancel”.

Chris says he plans to be back hosting the reality-dating series, expressing:  “I plan to be back. I want to be back.  This interview is not the finish line. There is much more work to be done.”

Following the exclusive, Michael Strahan described his conversation with Chris Harrison stating: “His apology is his apology, but it felt like it got nothing more than a surface response on any of this. Obviously, he is the man who wants to clearly stay on the show, but only time will tell if there is any meaning behind his words.”

So, what do you think of Chris Harrison’s responses during his first interview since the controversy? Should he return to hosting The Bachelor franchise? Comment below. But first check out his GMA exclusive.

GH’s Wes Ramsey Makes Statement on Criticism, Social Media, and Professionalism

General Hospital’s Wes Ramsey, who portrays polarizing character, Peter August on the ABC daytime drama series, responded to a recent take on his role from cast mate, Tristan Rogers (Scorpio) when a video made its way through social media.

The video was from a Cameo appearance, where Rogers offered an assessment of the Peter August storyline and expressed that while he knows Ramsey is a strong actor, he felt he was “wrong for the character” being that Peter was the son of the evil Faison played by Anders Hove.

Rogers also came to the defense of Ramsey and shared: “Don’t be too hard on Wes Ramsey. He’s got himself into a horrible storyline, and the storyline is the fault of the show. What they’ve literally done is they’ve painted themselves into a corner, and they don’t know how to get out of it.”

Currently, Peter’s story is front and center on GH with his wedding to Maxie (Kirsten Storms), and the fallout from all of the character’s dirty deeds.

Now Ramsey took to his Instagram account to address what transpired and his thoughts on the perils of social media, professionalism and acting, expressing: “Actors are storytellers, shapeshifters, chameleons. We’re also in the business of cultivating trust bc that’s how the best work is brought to life. We have to trust our imaginations, our instincts. We have to trust our fellow actors, because without them, there’s no scene to play. In the collaborative efforts of bringing any show to life, we also have to trust our directors each day to steer the arch of our story (like a conductor with a symphony) & trust our writers who are tasked with composing the symphonies we play out. I came up in a world of classical theater, where trusting the play, text, story is essential to the tightrope balancing act of making magic.  You will never hear me critique (on any public platform) the people responsible for the creative opportunities I enjoy each day. Without the trust of my writers, directors, producers & fellow actors, it would be impossible to live out my dreams. My job (& my only job) is to bring fearlessness, playfulness & passionate conviction to what has been created for me. My aim is to stretch myself (beyond the limits of where I think my boundaries may lye) each time I’m entrusted with material that allows those boundaries to be tested.

 

Every actor must believe they are the right person for their part or they will never achieve their potential, let alone surpass it. I was raised a gentleman & have two wonderful parents to thank for that, however, my polite personality (while rendering me easy to get along with on set) should have little bearing on my caliber of performance nor my castability as a professional.  I am leery of the pitfalls of social media & believe there are advantages to maintaining some mystery (even as a public figure) but I will always defend & protect what I hold dear (my job & my career) when they are publicly challenged, especially by those closest to me, whom I love & respect. Please know I bear no ill will. As a society, we are all still learning the full ramifications of living in an internet dominated culture. To all my many fans out there who offer encouragement & support, I hear you & am grateful for you. I’m having a blast… 🙂. Onward we go.”
