One Life to Live's Victor Jr. And Todd Showdown: "Hope You Burn In Hell Brother!"

Courtesy/TOLN

Courtesy/TOLN

In a scene that fans of One Life to Live have been waiting for since January 2012, (when Todd was arrested for the murder of his brother Victor Jr.,  only for viewers to find out that Victor Jr. was alive and being held hostage by Alison Perkins) on today’s episode the two had a very intense and contentious moment!

On the heels of Victor Jr. (Trevor St. John) exiting the canvas, Todd (Roger Howarth) baits Victor into a fight, after Victor apparently came to see Todd to call a truce for the good of the Manning children.   However, was Victor still poisoning Todd?  Whatever the case, the scene ended with Victor trying to choke Todd to death, and Todd lying on the floor.  Victor then uttered the words, “Hope you burn in hell brother.”

So, the question is:  Did you enjoy the scenes between two titans of soapdom, Trevor St. John and Roger Howarth?  If not, what would you have liked to have seem happen? Let us know your thoughts after watching today’s episode from Hulu,  after the jump!

Their scenes were the best thing on the show! I could have watched a few hours of them and skipped the nightclub…. and all the drinking at Dani’s.

so glad that Jack arrived when he did… but what will happen next?

and it’s soooo great to watch Roger on two shows a day! what fun!!

Agree completely! Their scenes were the show! In almost every other scene on OLTL… drinking is involved… or coffee at the coffee shop! The scenes with Dani, Matthew, and Jeffery were unwatchable and again because they can. Shelter is turning out to be a character like the Horton Town Square. Would rather see the diner (Buena Vista) back as the character. I realize they are appealing first and foremost to the younger crowd… but let’s give them great mysteries or drama and minimize the drinking… please!

I wish people would just grow up already. College-age kids drink, it’s no big deal

I would have liked them to figure out a way to get along (and share information) for the good of their family and perhaps for Victor to ask for Todd’s help, since “todd” is exiting soon as well, it would have made sense. I do not understand why Trevor is leaving and very upset. How will that be for the family to be abandoned by both. I enjoyed the beginning of their interaction, but not the animosity. And I have to admit, while I’m so happy the show is back, I did not enjoy the shelter scenes (not my thing)… Read more »

Trevor is leaving because he doesn’t want to be tied up on a soap because he has a ton of other things he is busy with. His life doesn’t revolve around you. You should be grateful he came back at all out of the goodness of his heart to provide a small bit of resolution to the story instead of whining selfishly about your own needs.

I, for one, am glad Trevor St. John will not be on “One Life to Live” permanently. He has been phonining in his performances for years now. He’s a snoozer!

Trevor is not leaving compleatly just for a short time. I have a friend who Talked to Flo/Tea and she told her Trevor has taped some new shows in the last 5wks so hang on everyone Victor will be back like he promised.

Guest

@ Joshua What the heck are you saying ? !!! Trevor is terrific. If he is acting different now it is because his character Victor has suffered a lot what with being held captive for a yr . He will get back to normal soon just hang in there.

@ Linn, i agree, i think with both Trevor and Roger leaving, the twin brother’s truce should’ve been real. I never cared for Trevor as Todd because Roger owned that role in every way. I did however respect Trevor as Victor . Trevor was a dark Todd and it was hard for me to like the character when he played it. I hated the way he treated Star and Cole during that whole pregnancy story. And whatever happened to the diner! The club and the drugs and drinking is supposed to appeal to who exactly? I hope there’s a story… Read more »

Yes, the plot line with Trevor/Victor is a little too dark for my taste. that’s not his fault though as some have implied. I don’t like what they’re doing to the character. About the only storyline’s I’m really enjoying are Vicki/Clint, Nora/Bo, I like that Jeffrey and Destiny, and happy to see Sean back- hope we will see him more. When Todd leaves, I hope he’ll work for Vicki in some way or even Bo. Back to Trevor- I liked Trevor as Todd a lot of the time, but not all. If Roger was not coming back- we needed a… Read more »

TSJ and RH both are the best actors that the soaps have..
Those two when doing their brother thing can bring it in any direction..
always a pleasure to watch the Manning brothers go at it..
They were awesome last show!!
Powerful acting!!!!
both have the talent to be creepy and loving ..

LOVED IT!!! i know they are exiting; but i want more!!! what actually happened? and where is allison perkins? how did she come back from the dead, in soap opera style? who was holding victor and what is their relation ship to todd??(remember, todd had the same tatoo) sooo many unanswered questions….i am sitting on the edge of my seat!!!

Victors exit has left more questions than answers, they have made him so dark I almost don’t like him anymore LOL The scene was the best thing on the show, the rest of it could was really not even interesting. For some reason kids getting drunk and removing their clothes seems to appeal to these writers. They need to concentrate on a good s/l

On another note…in this episode, did Blair finally mention Starr? I think I heard her tell Natalie that she speaks to Starr every day. With the club music in the background, it was a little tough to hear all of the dialogue. Did anyone else catch that?

Yes, Blair said Starr is doing well with her music career and they talk daily.

With both Manning brothers leaving…there is nothing left on OLTL to interest me…wished TSJ stayed a little longer to fully resolved his kidnapping plot…there shouldve been an investigation ect. The rest of the show has nothing going for it…but ill tune in occasionally. Instead of the teen strip scene, id rather had Bo involved in the Victor story … he’d be a P.I. now investigating Victors kidnapping and looking for a missing Allison Perkins! As for Dani, Matt, and Jeffry id have them in a dangerous situation where, after Dani o.d. Jeffry does an online news story on the local… Read more »

How do we know they are leaving? Perhaps TSJ leaving town is so we can delve into what happened to him? Roger Howarth isn’t leaving the show.. he’s doing GH and OLTL. Until they are gone or there’s a report stating so.. I don’t think anyone can say either actor/character is leaving.

I meant leaving for now…if and when they come back ill watch more but not much else is keeping me watching everyday like when they are on…i need more drama!

Thank you! The beauty of their 5 weeks on/5 weeks off schedule is it allows the actors to do other things. Everything I’ve read says that RH will be doing both OLTL & GH. TSJ has been busy working on other projects–one “Finding Normal” is premiering this weekend on GMC–but I suspect he’ll probably be back when his schedule permits.
I absolutely LOVE both actors on screen together (and with anyone else for that matter) and there is so much Todd/Victor story left to tell…I can’t wait!

heidi
Guest

Loved TSJ and RH’s scenes… along with FL’s… that’s the show… the rest was fill because they can… no real story… or anything to care about.

By the way… since we had to endure their drinking scenes… it would have been nice to see a truth or dare question rather than just remove shirt… etc. That would have taken some writing and some story though…

All I will say is that One Life To Live V2 is finally getting it right !

After the first two weeks I was ready to give up, but week 3 is everything I hoped it would be.

Great scene. Hate to see TSJ leave – but I’m sure he’ll be back. He really is an excellent actor. I enjoy the tense interaction of the characters, but I imagine it will be some time before anything is resolved with the brothers. Let’s hope TSJ and RH can come back to continue the saga.

I enjoyed the scenes. I hope he makes a return back to the show. I don’t think they would have him come back for a few scenes. I hope it’s temporary because I do enjoy the scenes between Victor and Todd. Very entertaining. Haven’t seen today’s episode, but do hope that they don’t kill him off. I am enjoying the reboot and hope they continue to deliver great storylines. It will be interesting if Tea does get pregnant again, which would fix the loss from last year.

I thought it was so stupid and forced. Todd being THAT upset at Victor for leaving? Why would he be? If he did he’d be the kids’ only father figure in town and have no one to compete with for their affection! Then Victor getting THAT violent with Todd in response to Todd’s already OOC reaction? Todd not accepting his brother and berating him for leaving the kids is hardly a reason for Victor to go psycho and murderous on his brother (if indeed his visit was really to make amends with his brother, which by the way it played… Read more »

I so agree with you. Need more Bo and Nora. Wish they had turned Bo into a P.I. and had him investigate Victors kidnapping and try to locate Allison. and after Dani O.D. Jeffry, Mathew and Dani shouldve went undercover to investigate Llanviews drug ring which places all three lives in danger!

so they brought victor back for? since your article says he is exiting… we really learned nothing… it makes no sense.. they way you bridge the story is horrible… no allison no mitch the story dropped and you added a tattoo to change a story…. not impressed so far.. especially since you brought Victor back to leave… guess the writers should have left Todd dead two weeks ago with the poison… instead of wasting our time

Loved the scenes. I don’t claim to know anything about the actors personal lives, but maybe it’s possible that TSJ was only available for a short time and agreed to come back to help the relaunch? I think Victors psycho reaction goes along with the way he’s been written-darker, unpredictable-possibly as a result of whatever happened to him in the past year? Tea finding the decapitated giraffe was a clue to her about his mental problems. Todd’s reaction was understandable-he hates Victor but knows the animosity isn’t good for his kids and Victor disappearing again will just make it worse… Read more »

Speaking as someone who has pretty much only followed this show in its new incarnation, I personally didn’t care much for TSJ. I found him to be extremely dull and one-note. I’ve been enjoying RH on GH, so I enjoyed him here as well. I know that actors like TSJ and Michael Easton have a WOW factor, but as I just watch them mumble their way sullenly through scenes, I’m thinking “what’s the big deal?” I too hope that Shelter fades into the background, or at LEAST turn the music DOWN so that we can hear what the characters are… Read more »

OK That tattoo on Victor’s arm…… didn’t Todd have one also or was that just Irene’s henchmen that had them? Anyway… Could Irene still be alive and be behind Victors abduction and the tattoo gang?

I thought I remember Todd holding a box with that same insignia that’s tattooed on Victor’s arm, making it seem like he knows something about it or is apart of it.

I immensely enjoyed the scene. My TSJ as badazz Victor is totally swoon worthy. Him being this bad is just SEXAY!!!! Loved him choking that rat basted Todd out & letting him know about the poison…Karma is a B & Todd deserve that & much much more:)

Todd and Victor were really intense. I was gasping a little for breath myself, it turned so violent so fast. Powerful stuff between two superb actors, and two deadly delicious characters.

I like the reboot but wish there is more air time for the older actors. The young actors look they were cast out of the Abercrombie and Fitch catalogue and not for their acting skills. Having them shirtless doesn’t compensate for their lack of acting experience. It is even more evident when they are in a scene with Todd, David, Vicky or almost any adult. We missed the older characters not these vapid tiny boppers.

Monday and Tuesday’s shows with Todd and Victor blew me away! Almost glad the drama calmed down a little for Wednesday and Thursday! Monday’s episode totally affected me for the whole day! And then Tuesday, I said NO WAY is Todd going to be killed off! WOW is all I can say! Awesome writing and BRAVO TO PP!! Now on the other hand, the thought of never having Todd or Victor back on OLTL is devastating to me. It is my hopes that that they will continue on and that all the rumors I see are true that TSJ will… Read more »

I SO AGREED WITH YOU. TSJ AND RH ARE GREAT TOGETHER! ALSO I JUST LOVE VICTOR AND TEA TOGETHER!!!!!!! I HOPE THE RUMORS ARE TRUE AND THAT TSJ WILL BE BACK TO OLTL VERY SOON. HE HAS A VERY HUGE AND HOT STORY GOING ON REGARDING THE PEOPLE RESPONSIBLE FOR WHAT HAPPENED TO HIM. WE NEED TSJ, TEA AND RH AS WELL AS BLAIR AND THE KIDS IN THIS BIG STORY! PLEASE OLTL BRING BACK TREVOR ST. JOHN AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. MISS HIM.

Peter Bergman Signs 5-Year Deal with The Young and the Restless

Some of the hottest news on Daytime Emmy night was the reveal that 23-time Daytime Emmy nominee, and 3-time Emmy-winner, Peter Bergman is staying put at The Young and the Restless for quite some time to come, in fact, at least five more years.

Bergman, who plays Genoa City staple, Jack Abbott, has inked a new five-year deal to stay with the CBS daytime drama series, which is a significant contract in the world of soaps.  The usual contact for actors is somewhere between one and four years, with thirteen-week or twenty-six-week cycle, if the show were to not pick up an actors option.

While Y&R has been renewed thus far through the 2024 TV season, it would seem this move to ensure Bergman is sticking around as the show moves past its 50th year on the air, is a vote of confidence by Sony Pictures Television and CBS that the top-rated daytime drama will live on.

Deadline first reported the contract news.  Peter joined Y&R back in 1989, after first successful soap foray on All My Children as Dr, Cliff Warner.

So, what do you think about Peter signing on for five more years at Y&R? Comment below.
