Thursday’s episode of One Life to Live left viewers with many questions that are yet to be answered!  First, just as Natalie (Melissa Archer) get the seal of approval from mom, Viki (Erika Slezak) to move on with her life and date again, (Natalie made a date with Cutter) at the end of the episode, Natalie receives a call from lo and behold John McBain!  Only, Natalie misses the call.  Is she really over him?

Elsewhere, Matthew (Robert Gorrie) and Dani (Kelley Missal) continue their secret lust for each other, while Matthew looks to be getting himself deeper into chatting with the mysterious “Michelle”!  Is this a catfishing scheme, or what is going on?

Viki and Clint (Jerry verDorn) come to blows over The Banner, while Jeffrey continues to infuse new ideas into the digital age for the online version of the paper and more!

Finally, Todd (Roger Howarth) tries to make some headway with his son, Jack (Andrew Trischitta), but Jack is still angry over losing Victor Jr. and holds Todd responsible.  Jack has an outburst while an upset Blair (Kassie DePaiva) looks on and wonders what the future holds for her son.

Watch today’s episode after the jump and let us know what you thought of it? Are you enjoying One Life? Or, are there some things you would like to see happen in the storylines?  Weigh-in!

Okay episode. Would be nice if Blair had something to do. Trischitta can’t act, still can’t act, can’t act, can’t act, and I wish they would stop ramming him down our throats.

I wonder about this “Michelle.” I don’t think she is what she appears to be. I smell a rat. Or, what if it is really Destiny? Just a thought. I was shocked to see the missed call from John. I don’t watch GH. I think I heard Clint had a hand in Natalie finding out about John kissing Sam. How did his storyline end on GH? Again, I am in the minority and never felt they were right for each other. Natalie was such a compulsive liar and he was Mr. Uptight/Reserved/Law and Order. How could he trust her? If… Read more »

Todd was responsible for Natalie finding out that John kissed another woman (Samantha Morgan). John McBain was sent out on an FBI assignment.

What would make this ”Michelle” storyline shocking is that the person turned out to be Mathews so-called good friend Jeffry? And im suprised OLTL is using some of gh storyline after pp complained about how abc used the three oltl characters in gh stories without their consent…it seems, however, it works for OLTLs storylines so pp shouldve allowed abc to continue using the oltl characters on gh but its too late now!

would love to see more of the Todd/Victor storyline. I wonder what Todd has to do with the organization that held Victor captive and did he know he was alive all along?

Natalie will NEVER be over John!!! its obvious! if she was over him she wouldn’t have cared that he called her. With John and Natalie’s 10 year history and son, its never gonna be over between them. if ME ever comes back it will be EPIC! GH just messed up Johns character this past year! They didn’t even write Johns character the way he was written on OLTL, he was a totally different character! n GH needs to let ME go so he can go back to OLTL!! They’re keeping him on purpose because they don’t want OLTL’s ratings to… Read more »

Agreed! “JOLIE” story needs to continue even if that means recasting John McBain and I love Michael Easton and wish him nothing but good fortune & success.

I don’t care for Natalie with Cutter . I never cared for Cutter before or now. He is a ladies man … In my opinion Cutter can’t stay with one woman for very long. And Natalie has Liam and I don’t think Cutter is to crazy about children. He likes all the glamor of his job & all the woman he meets up with this job. He is a shady character.I don’t think he is trust worthy to go into a full blown relationship with just one woman. I think Cutter likes varaity! Can’t stay with one person for very… Read more »

Totally co-sign your post cegee05! Love my Jolie & they never really got enough of happy times for us fans to enjoy, so I will never accept her with that player Cutter!!

I agree with all of you – Jolie was an EPIC love story, best one on all the soaps as far as I’m concerned, in the past 10 yrs. Soaps have forgotten how to do a love story. Throw them into bed, yeah, now they’re in love! Jolie simmered and simmered, making the audience WAIT for it .. then maddeningly they were torn apart again and again! FINALLY at the end, they were together. Then what does GH do with John? Make him go sniffing after Sam? After he finally got the woman he’d always wanted, the family he’d always… Read more »

I am not enjoying the show at all! I think I know why. There are so few likeable characters. With the exception of Jeffery, the young characters are selfish and self centered. Even Destiny is now out clubbing with Natalie while somebody babysits. And we are supposed to feel sorry for her! Matthew is a jerk. Dani is a total mess. Who wants to watch that? And sorry to say,I agree, Trishitta CANT ACT! Even the so called grown ups are so wrapped up in themselves they aren’t anybody you would want as a friend…except for poor Vicki. I say… Read more »

I like Jeffrey also… Matthew & Dani are totally out of hand…And Dani lusting for Matthew etc.I like Bo &Nora and Viki. Sounds like you don’t like oltl . I don’t think Bo is half witted.. I don’t agree with your statement about putting the show out of it’s misery! We finally got it back and I am happy about that.

Great scenes with the dysfunctional Manning family. Intentional or not, Andrew Trischitta plays Jack with a disaffection that works wonderfully in the charged scenes with his father, Todd.

I hope there is a new McBain waiting in the wings, or at least in the works.

I think Andrew has improved greatly. He has become Jack, a Todd clone with a hint of conscience.

Just so disappointed in where OLT is going. I am a true fan, purchased HuluPlus.. Started out great, but for me just falling apart… no heart…no suspense….hate the sex with the young kids.. No romance…pace is going sooo slow… Smart decision on the part of the Landview 3 went to GH!

I totally agree. I wish I liked the new oltl, but it almost hurts to watch it….almost like it does a disservice to the wonderful show it used to be.

Now Jack might be involved with his summer school teacher!

I love all the established couples on the show .. Bo&Nora, Vicki&Clint, Dorian&David, Blair&Todd, etc., but ITA about the horny teenagers. Pathetic!

Emmanuel Acho Replaces Chris Harrison as Host of ‘The Bachelor’ Finale ‘After the Final Rose’ Special

Former NFL linebacker and Fox Sports analyst and host of the weekly web series Uncomfortable Conversations With a Black Man, Emmnauel Acho has gotten the nod to replace longtime ‘Bachelor’ franchise host, Chris Harrison, for this season’s ‘After the Final Rose’ special.

On Saturday, in an Instagram post confirming the news, Acho wrote, “I’ve accepted the Rose and am honored to be hosting the @bachelorabc After the Final Rose this year. It’s been a pivotal season, and this episode will hopefully be one of the most storied shows in TV history. Empathy is needed and change is coming. Share the news! I’ll see y’all then!”

Previously, Chris Harrison revealed that he was stepping aside from The Bachelor after he made controversial remarks to Rachel Lindsey during her interview with him on Extra.  At that time, Harrison and Lindsey, who was the first Black Bachelorette in the series history, were discussing current contestant Rachael Kirkconnell’s controversy, which included photos of her attending an antebellum-themed college party in 2018, and allegedly liking and sharing social media posts with the Confederate flag and Qanon conspiracies.  Harrison’s comments seemed to indicate he felt people were passing judgement on Kirkconnell on this time of ‘cancel culture’ in our society.  Those remarks inflamed viewers and Lindsey.  As Bachelor Nation knows this season featured Matt James as the first Black bachelor ever within the franchise.

As for Acho, he will anchor the After the Rose special airing on Monday, March 15, immediately following the season finale of The Bachelor. He will sit down with James as well as the three finalists Kirkconnell, Michelle Young and Bri Springs, which is said to include talon the past racist remarks made by Kirkconnell and Harrison’s exit for the special.

So, what do you think about ABC’s choice to replace Chris Harrison for the ‘After the Final Rose” special?  Has this whole season of ‘The Bachelor’ backfired when it should have been groundbreaking? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
