In this photo handout from Prospect Park/The OnLine Network’s revival of the beloved serial drama, One Life to Live, fan favorites, Erika Slezak (Victoria), Hillary B. Smith (Nora ) and Kassie DePaiva (Blair are pictured here in a jaw-dropping scene from the season finale of One Life to Live streaming online this coming Monday, August 19 via Hulu, Hulu Plus and iTunes!  Is a picture worth a thousand words? What has Viki, Nora, and Blair so stunned that their jaws have dropped?

This season wraps as the entire town of Llanview attends the annual Man of the Year Gala. Viki and Dorian, co-chairs of the planning committee, hope that the event will go off without a hitch. However, with the conflicts between many of the characters brewing to the surface, that looks nearly impossible.  Fireworks explode and it all comes to a head with the shocking return of a fan favorite in a big way. Everything comes to a head on the season finale of One Life to Live!

A breakdown of what is to come in the final two episodes of the season next week ….

EPISODE 54: Clint decides to make his presence felt at the Man of the Year Gala. Tea becomes enraged when she finds out who Dani’s date really is. Nikki tells Natalie the truth about her and Cutter. Jack skips out on the party for some fun of his own.

EPISODE 55: Paramedics are called as the Man of the Year Gala goes awry. Natalie is horrified by what she finds at the hospital. Blair opens up to Jack, who is hiding a secret of his own. Tea confronts Dani and Arturo about their relationship.

Will you be one of the first to watch One Life to Live season finale on Soap Mondays on Hulu on August 19th?  How do you think the season finale will play out? Who will be in danger? What surprises do you think are in store?  Weigh-in!

Frankly, I’m more concerned about the start date for season two.

No kidding I cried for 3 months after it was cancelled. I do know that AMC is starting production in Sept. I am sure OLTL will be soon. I emailed Jeff K because people are going crazy about this. I am hoping that he will email back. He has before to me.

They should be back in production from thier early hiatus by now,so,(depending on how many episodes they filmed,should they have enough)I’d say probably late fall/early winter,maybe not until the early part of 2014.

I agree. I hope Season 2 is On OWN.

Brett

I’m worried about this too. If they must do AMC and OLTL in seasons, I really wish they would alternate them so that we have a few months of OLTL, then a few months of AMC, back to OLTL and so on, that way we’d have one of the shows to keep us going all the time and people will remain interested and tuning in.

I just want to be able to watch on television and OWN is a good place for it. My mom isn’t computer literate and we watched AMC & OLTL since day 1. Even when we’re fighting about everything else, we could always safely talk our soaps. It has been great having safe topics again!

Definitely Carlo is a fan favorite. What about Allison Perkins? Is she a fan favorite?

Tali

I figured it would be Allison Perkins, don’t consider either one of them fan favorites tho’!! More like Victor, Todd, Jessica, John McBain, Joey, Kelly, Christian would be great – any of them but the criminals!

I will defintely be watching OLTL on Monday Aug 19. I am interested in the new Ron Raines character with the new standout Corbin Bleu…but not sure who we will see in the finale. Could be Alison, Todd, John McBain or even Kevin? Who knows…I will be eager to see. I am concerned about the writing for Robin Strasser as Dorian. This is a key role for OLTL. And as I understand it – she is not inclded in the finale other than her promenade with on Raines character. Hope they wrap up the “symbol” notes and tattoos quickly. That… Read more »

yep i will b watching right when they are uploaded like usual- Sunday nite/Monday moring is when I only get 2 hrs of sleep cuz I cant wait 2 see the new episodes of OLTL.
So i guess after next week I will get a little more sleep for a while, since they havent even started filming the new episodes yet.

But I will wait anxioulsy ( and impatienltly – lol) for them to come back.

i have a feeling one life to live will be cancelled yet again. one life to live and all my children. what bs season 2. the soaps started on april 30 2013. season 2 does not make sence at all. im very disappointed with the new one life to live. i thought it would be way better. but its picking up now. too late i smell cancellation yet again. all my children is doing better than i expected. but still dont see the 2 soaps survive at all. i love days of our lives and general hospital right now. both… Read more »

I disagree with you big time – GH sucks and only soap worth watching is OLTL. That’s why there are more than 1 soap, not all of us like the same ones.

I don’t think Rocco is being negative – just realistic. Facts are that they have NOT started filming season 2 yet and NO season 2 start date has been announced. I have a feeling an announcement of sorts will be coming by the end of the month. I just hope it doesn’t end with a bigger cliffhanger than the first time it went off the air because if it is cancelled, it won’t be coming back.

I can’t wait. OLTL is on fire!!!!!!!!!!!! Of course, I’m hoping the fan favorite who returns in a big way is Victor. (Unfortunately, not likely.)

I’m so looking forward to season 2. I hope we don’t have to wait too long.

Such negativity on these boards. Would you have rather not had OLTL back at all? Seriously, cut the whining and the nastiness. If I was tossing millions of dollars into the revival of this soap, I might have had second thoughts with some of the self-entitled armchair quarterbacks. No matter what PP does, in the eyes of some, they will never win.

Greg
Guest
Greg

It’s not a question of that. They have changed their story to fans every single time. Nothing that they have said in terms of programming has been true. To run a soap, they have to have actual sources of revenue and they have to keep their viewership strong. Had they said on day 1, “We will have an hour of programming a week for 13 weeks” I think people would be more understanding. Instead, with every new press release, they explain how they will have less and less programming. If I were an actor, I also would not be encouraged… Read more »

On-Line soaps are new and as such they have a lot of tweaking that needs to be done. Please stick with OLTL & AMC thru all these trials. PP are trying to make improvements with everyones feedback!

Jeff
Guest

It’s up to them to change their business model, and they don’t have to apologize to anyone for that. If something isn’t working, they have the right to tweak that business model.

I’m just happy they’re back. I could watch Florencia and Erika do table reads of the script and I’d be happy.

Keith
Guest

Since you asked, I would rather have it end than watch the shallow sporadic version we have now. PP first promised 5 hours a week. Now it’s down to 1 and will there be weeks with no new shows. OLTL doesn’t even look like the same show. Has anyone at PP even watched enough old episodes to know what Llanview looks like or what went on there? Maybe they should and make some changes. Here’s the best feedback to fix things, All PP has to do is copy the old show and go from there, not try to make everything… Read more »

I expressed my opinion and now some people are telling me what to do. Everyone should be free express their opinion, or ideas which might help the show in a positive way, without being attacked. Apparently some people think if I don’t agree with them I should just be quite and go away. Perhaps these people should be in politics. 😉

It sucks that the shows are taking a break for the next season. I can understand if it’s for budget, but what if people don’t come back after the break? PP made it sound like in the beginning that they would constantly be on, but that was also when they had 4 episodes instead of 2!

I don’t get the season approach. In 20 years I never heard of soaps having seasons like primetime shows. If this week is the end of season 1, when was PP going to end it when they aired 4 episodes a week? Was 2 episodes always the plan? Will season 2 start the following week or will there be weeks with no new shows? Didn’t they say they had enough already done? Also, it doesn’t feel the same as the old show. The veteran actors are great, you can see how really good they are because they are carrying the… Read more »

@Keith…I said expressed almost the exact sentiments on the post about “Alison” brother…can’t remember the acto’s name.

The characters still don’t “feel” the same, characters not back are not mentioned, Angel Square and familiar haunts not there…Llanview still feels like a “ghost town” of its former self.

I too will continue to watch in the hope that with steady viewershp, steady budget, better writing, they can add more of the familiar and get the original characters back to their former “selves.”

There is no indication of when season 2 will start. Most likely AMC has to do its stuff first so we are talking about a November re-launch at the latest. These long hiatuses do not bring in viewers.

I REALLY want Todd back! This soap just isn’t the same without him. I think that Todd and Blair have more chemistry than Luke and Laura and we, as the fans, deserve to see them happy together for a length of time. They have finally “Grown up” and realized what true love is all about. Let’s see some sparks fly (in bed)between them!

Patricia
Guest

AGREED and think Todd will be back as part of the tattoo story arc when RH has free time off from GH. They couldnt have made it clearer in RH last episodes he would be back(mentioning it every minute the SONG ETC) . It IS nice to see some “grown up love” between todd and blair they have WAY WAY more chemistry then Luke and Laura seeing them work together and happy would make this fan VERY happy!

I don’t like the wait for season 2 but I CAN wait but please don’t make it too long. I have watched OLTL since Act 1, Scene 1 and I have no plans of stopping now. My wish is that #1 – Season 2 starts soon and PP tells us when it is (I don’t care if it is on Hulu, iTunes, Own, I’ll… Read more »

Great picture! I cannot wait to see these episodes. I am also getting anxious as we have not heard about Season 2. Michael, have the All My Children actors returned to CT to start filming? I thought it had been said that they were supposed to return in August? That might give us a clue about the next season.

Greg
Guest

I am much more concerned about when the actors can get back to work. Julia Barr slipped on Michael’s program and told her fellow actors, “See you in September”. This means that OLTL can come back in October at the earliest and launch in November. But TOLN has never told us the truth EVER. First it was switching to 2 eps a week, then they disappointed fans in Canada losing FX Canada, then there was the union dispute, so OLTL only got 1/2 of a second shoot. Then they said if the dispute was ressolved, there would be no interruption… Read more »

I suggest you get/buy your own soap opera and run it the way you’d like it to be.
You do not own the soaps , PP has the right to do whateverinhell with the soaps that see fit to do..
what PP has done is give us our soaps back and they fought every obstetrical to bring the soaps back and you are getting 2 great soaps FREE ..
….. stop complaining.. 🙂

Well you’re certainly right about one thing – “PP has the right to do whateverinhell with the soaps that they see fit to do” since ALL MY CHILDREN vaguely resembles what it used to be and ONE LIFE TO LIVE and the town of Landview seems oddly populated. As for “getting 2 soaps free” personally, I pay for Hulu Plus, and I pay a considerable amount for the Internet. I think it’s nice that both shows are back and I watch them faithfully but Fans have every right in the world to make observations but pro and con and that’s… Read more »

I will be watching and can’t wait to see what happens. I am hoping that the wait for season two is not that long. I wish the absence of Jessica in town would be addressed as she was a major character in The Lord family’s. history and Natalie’s sister. Vicki has not even mentioned her daughters name. That kind of bothers me.

Jessica was mentioned briefly by Viki,when Clint was trying to get Viki to elope and fly to Paris.

I am completely disappointed with PP. I was so excited to know my show was going to continue but they let us down constantly. The writing was centered around to many people new to the show and people like Tea have no one. Apparently neither Todd planned to stay with the show so instead of spending the entire season letting Tea and Blair hung up on these two guys they should have brought in long term love interest for them. There is no way Roger is coming back. He isn’t going to give up the money he is making with… Read more »

PP is doing great.. The soaps are blockbusters on HuLu and iTunes and that has put a huge amount money in PP pockets.. Our soaps are very solid and have a great future.. Some simply are not familiar with the way shows are run on the internet and expect the soaps to be scheduled and run as they were on network tv, and for some reason they continue to compare network soaps with the now internet soaps, they are not near being the same as was, they are produced and scheduled for the internet..

I think it is the biggest villain in OLTL’s history…

…Mitch Lawrence and he has Jessica with him!

That would explain the look of horror on Viki, Nora and Blair’s faces and the return of a fan favorite.

If Victor can be brought back from the dead, why can’t Mitch. There is the Allison connection after all.

I have to agree with everyone, I hope that the Hiatus isn’t very long. I’ve been watching since day one and I love Todd and Blair. I started watching GH because Roger H. was on and so was Starr. I really wish that Todd would be back on OLTL.
