On today’s episode of One Life to Live  on Hulu and iTunes, the action shifts to the underground and the underbelly of Llanview, when Club Shelter is the scene for a night of music!

Super deejay duo Nervo appears and spins some tunes, and then rapper, Riff Raff makes his debut as shady Miami art dealer, Jamie Franko who wants his money back from Cutter Wentworth (Josh Kelly)! What ensues is a night of dancing, and temptation of drugs and sex!

In other developments, Bo (Robert S. Woods) and Nora (Hillary B. Smith) spice up their marriage, and we have the continuation of the Todd and Victor Jr. (Trevor St. John) story!  When we last saw Todd (Roger Howarth) on Monday’s episode, he began drinking a spiked liquor thanks to whatever Victor Jr. put into it … and from the looks of it, it’s lethal poison!

Watch the episode after the jump! Then, let us know what you thought of a few of the sexually explicit overtones to a few moments in the episode! And, what do you think will happen next with Dani (Kelley Missal) and Matthew (Robert Gorrie)? Tea (Florencia Lozano) and Victor Jr.? And, will someone get to Todd in time?  Weigh-in!

Not into rapp music. Never have been. This music seems to be for the younger crowd! Ilike the disco music from the 70’s & 80’s….

Bo and Nora were wonderful together as always. They have such fun being together. Seeing Victor and Tea united in their love for Dani was great. I so hope their marriage can weather whatever happened to Victor. I can’t image what is going to become of Dani, Destiny and Matthew. It looks like a real mess for all of them. I was happy to see Rama go home to Vimal. Being an oldster, I have no opinion on the DJs or the guy with the tattooed face. They were there. I assume we’ll see them again. I loved the transition… Read more »

OK, here’s a message to Thom Racina….I’m a hardcore, long time fan of OLTL, and I’m in my mid-thirties, so I still consider myself to be rather young….lol But let me tell you these episodes centered around Shelter aren’t going to cut it for me. Slow down the freaking pace of the show, focus on story development, and character development…just like AMC. And quit feeling the need to say shit in every other sentence. OLTL is so much better than this. If you have to, go back and watch what Ron did, because I’m not too happy with the direction… Read more »

Torrey, I agree with you about OLTL. I’m hoping that we will find out what happened to Victor during the time he was held captive, but it’s just not being addressed right now for some reason. There are times when I do feel like a few pages of script must have been misplaced and they forgot to shoot a scene here and there. It just doesn’t feel like real reactions, to certain situations, are always being played-out. And I do believe and expect that more attention will be paid to the vets. Youth is fine – I was young myself… Read more »

Torrey, I don’t like the Shelter scenes nor do I like the riff raff, but I DO like the new young actors/actress and “I got You Babe” at the end. There’s alittle for everybody. Hope the younger generation is liking the show. I’m a 50+ viewer and still love the show and will support it everyday. I need some Natalie, Liam and a new John McBain, PLEASE!!!!

” If you have to, go back and watch what Ron did”
No no no no no. Ron was fun but too campy. His stories dragged on for years with very little variation, DNA this DNA that. DIDIDIDID until people had alternate personalities coming out of their ears. I’ve loved what Thom and Susan have given us so far and only in 5 hours! Each day we are getting more sets and with the reintroduction of characters they are laying the framework for the stories to tell.

Torrey
Guest

To be honest, I’d much rather focus on story lines and character development that focus in on sets. And I don’t mean that I want the stories to drag on for years, I just mean that it would be nice to actually have some stories to actually get invested in. This weird open relationship with Rama and Vimel…the return of Victor that no one seems shocked by (with the exception of Tea and Dani screaming in the hospital), Not to mention Dani getting out of the hospital then heading back to the club the same day, the scandal of Dorian… Read more »

Totally agree Torrey…its not as good as i thought it would be…shit seems to be Thoms all time favorite word. Its used too much…i knew these shows werent going to be the classy shows they once were. I have no problem with a few cuss words but now i feel they are just using it just because they can and the love scenes are dragging the show. I dont mind some love scenes but they need to shorten them and give us some story development. If they dont start explaining soon at least a little something that happen to Victor… Read more »

Well said Torrey… and agree completely! I am older than you and I watched OLTL pretty much from day one and loved it for years. I am also a change agent and consider myself open to many things but… this OLTL and especially Tuesday’s episode is so disappoining to me and it hurts because I want to love the show… I am so happy the actors and crew have jobs… I love the new changes in exploring anytime and new media viewing… however this is not the OLTL I have loved for years and while I am going to give… Read more »

HORRIBLE !!!!I If this is the kind of story-telling we can expect it will not last long.

brian

Please, am I the only one who thinks that this isn’t hitting the mark OLTL viewers expect ?

The scenes are going on too long with no dialogue, just looking at each other, too many scene of people just dancing, and not enough story developing.

And Bo just finding out that Nora has a radio show in the collage days ?
I think these characters know each other better than that.

I won’t give up on OLTL yet… but if we don’t get some solid storyline happening soon….

Does anyone else feel this way?

Johnny
Guest

Yes, there is something missing, Brian, I don’t think you are alone in your opinion. I think the shows, both OLTL and AMC need time to develop, and it’s a little hard to do with 26 minute episodes – I am trying to hold positive thoughts. The shows don’t look the same, not that I expected them to look the way they did on abc, but with all different sets and a completely different feel and pace, I don’t know, it’s interesting to watch them unfold but somehow it’s not quite as compelling as it ought to be.

I feel the same way Brian…its like the show is working with half a script and strectching it out. It has some good moments here and there but its not as addictive as it used to be! Hoping it improves…im still watching and not ready to give up on it yet…its too soon. Bo and Nora deserve something better! It needs more story development that is certain. I dont mind some cursing and a few love scenes thrown in but being online it seems the writers and producers feel thats all they need and very little else to attract an… Read more »

the show is finding their way–bo and nora’s sexy talk via cell phone was terrific–light, funny–hope they don’t blow the victor/todd potential with the brief time they have with roger howath–them getting what irene did to both of them would be what would move this forward–not just you tried to kill me, you tried to kill me–and jack and dani continue to be snotty jerk off kids. shelter is going on too much–show is too schizophrenic (but at least the twenty somethings act somewhat like twenty somethings rather than a romance novel version of teens on all my children (mysterious… Read more »

AMC has been firing on all cylinders….I’m actually finding myself excited about watching the next episode! It’s a complete 180 from the Charles Pratt, David Kreizman & Donna Swajeski days…..where they committed a crime with horrible script after horrible script.

“I got you, babe” Wow. who ever thought that song could have such a playful and chilling effect all at once. The music on OLTL has been fantastic. And hahaha but doesn’t Riff have a real life tiff going with James Franco? Too much fun!

They really ought to knock it off already with the ridiculous amount of time wasted on stupid club scenes – if we want to see club scene we could all jump in my car and go to a club – more storyline, less inane dancing scenes – not necessary, and doesn’t do much to help plots move along.

Especially because the dancing is awkward at best. Makes me so uncomfortable to even watch…

At first I didn’t much care for today’s show but then started to see it as a way to move some stories forward. Dani is still a mess and hanging around with the wrong crowd. Cutter obviously had some underground dealings that will probably affect Blair as co-owner of the club. Rama started to see the caliber of guys out there and may start to appreciate what she has with Vimal a bit more. It is possible to be married and have fun. Just look at Bo & Nora. I think we need to look at the big picture and… Read more »

Cutter doesn’t co-own Shelter with Blair! Blair owns the club all by herself while Cutter is the manager and promoter of the club. Kassie DePaiva (Blair) and OLTL associate producer Jared Kaplan confirmed that to me on twitter when I asked them both about the club.

I too, agree with Torrey and the others. Nervo and Riff Raff? Never heard of them. The younger actors are getting far too much storyline at the expense of the vets and I do not like the scenes in Shelter. Not interested in seeing young people dance.The music is mixed way too loud. Please OLTL cool it with the rappers and DJ’s. If you have the money to pay these performers, then spend it on Ilene Kristen and bring Roxy Balsam back! One other thing that’s driving me nuts…Hulu’s numbering system. Why was Monday’s episode lableled #6 and that dreadful… Read more »

I wish the love scenes with TEA AND VCTOR were longer, they were surprisingly HOTTER AND RACIER on ABC far. It seems like they are just teasing us right now, hopefully they will get racier/longer soon. Miss the intensity they showed on ABC (surprised they got away with what they did on Network TV 🙂 )

I think Shelter picks up the feel of Blair’s old club (which I’m forgetting the name of at the moment) just fine. I’m thinking that it seems part restaurant/part club since she was at the bar area when Tea, Dani & Jack arrived, so perhaps part of the place is restaurant, and another section for the club. I’m nearly 40, but on the rare occasion that I went to the local LGBT bar (within the past year), they had similar playing music at the club. Not usually my thing (clubs) but every once in a while I would go. Blair’s… Read more »

Not sure who they are trying to attract as viewers and I am not a big Rif Raf fan….I would much rather have had more Todd Manning.

Here’s my take so far. The intro is terrible as well as the theme song. The first episode was terrible and the second wasn’t much better. The third was OK and the fourth was really good. Yesterday’s was really good too. And then today’s was pretty lousy with the exception of Bo and Nora. The show grinds to a screeching halt whenever the night club is a focus. And there’s too much Matthew, way too much. I agree about the language. The needless cursing doesn’t make the show hip, cool or edgy. Just comes across as childish and a bit… Read more »

My favorite part was the two chicks making out! #Biancastyle Thought it was a good episode, I love AMC and OLTL.. i’m hooked. I’ve been hooked on OLTL forever, AMC has brought me back in after leaving due to Babe; how she can do evil sh!t and nobody get mad at her drove me nuts(keeping Bianca’s baby, cheating on JR, etc). Again, people want to complain how it’s not the AMC or OLTL they remember or whatever.. ask yourself, would you rather not have it at all? I know I fought like hell to get the word out to as… Read more »

I’ve been watching the show for decades and it was like losing a family member when it was cancelled. Considering that they’re starting from scratch, I think they are doing a fantastic job. Is it a little uneven? Yes. But the original show was uneven for months at a time. Just like real life. I’m happy!

If you are a very long time OLTL viewer, you have to admit that there were times over the decades where you LOVED it and times where you said WTH are they doing? That is what soap watchers do; have you seen how the GH viewers are pounding Ron Carlivati on twitter right now? I agree with everything that has been said above but as a VERY long time fan, I will certainly give the new team the benefit of the doubt for now; there are glitches, room for improvement, etc but if history is any indication, I’m sure that… Read more »

well, I had read that this Riff Raff was trying to be kinda like Franco on GH — guess he didn’t read that Franco wasn’t well liked on GH, a little of him just went on and on ad nauseam

and “frankly” Riff Raff did the same for me and I fast forwarded past his scenes. I told a co-worker the only Riff Raff I could remember was the creepy guy from Rocky Horror… and he was more “pleasant” to watch and listen to. 🙂

Give OLTL a chance to grow and improve! I think it is doing pretty well but not perfect. But like any show never was! However I am so glad to have it back! It is wonderful and mostly good in my opinion. Love having them all back!! Perfect stories or not. I do agree there is too much at Shelter.

‘This Is Us’ Guest Star Ron Cephas Jones & Jasmine Cephas Jones Become First Father-Daughter Winners In Emmy History

On Saturday night, Ron Cephas Jones took home his second Emmy for his guest-star turn on the hit NBC drama, This Is Us.   Jones, plays the biological father, William Hill to Sterling K. Brown’s Randall Pearson.  Jones took home the gold during the final night of the Creative Arts Emmys leading into Sunday’s night’s major ceremony on the 72nd annual Primetime Emmys on ABC. (8 p.m. EST/5 p. m. PST).

But what made last night all the more special for Ron is that with this win, he, along with his daughter actress Jasmine Cephas Jones, became the first father-daughter duo in Academy history to win Emmys.  Jasmine won on Thursday night’s Creative Arts Awards for her work on Quibi’s #FreeRayshawn.   Ron won in the Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama series, while Jasmine took home the gold in the Outstanding Actress in a Short Form Comedy or Drama Series category.

In the virtual press room following his win, Ron expressed: “As a parent that’s the most fulfilling that I could ever feel at the moment. Winning another Emmy is the icing on the cake, but to see my daughter progress and move into this place where she’s earned an Emmy is beyond words and I tear up every time I think about it to be honest with you. To see my daughter become healthy and happy, that’s a parent’s dream.  I’ve always focused on the work ever since she was a little girl, and coming from the theater it’s always been about trying to do good work…when you do what you want to do and you’re happy and you’re healthy that’s the win in itself… When we found out she was nominated, I was expressing to her that’s the win in itself when your work gets acknowledged and the win itself is the icing on the cake that keeps you humble and keeps you hungry.”

However, Ron’s win did not go off without hitch!  The broadcast announced The Outsider‘s Jason Bateman as the winner, and then suddenly cut to a commercial.  After the break, a title card acknowledged the mistake and confirmed that the This Is Us star was the actual winner.  In the virtual press room an announcement to all was made that: “They announced the right winner and the right slate, but the voiceover was incorrect.”

So what do you think about Ron Cephas Jones second Emmy win for This Is Us, and his daughter winning an Emmy the same Emmy season? Comment below.

Holly’s Alive as Emma Samms Makes a Return to General Hospital

Friday’s cliffhanger ending of General Hospital revealed that Holly is indeed alive and being held captive, but by whom?  Who ever is behind this has her locked away and being watched on a surveillance system.

Viewers saw a hand of someone that is behind the kidnapping, and that Emma Samms made a return to GH in her signature role of Holly Sutton.

Samms, debuted on GH back in 1982, and has come and gone, and come back again to the ABC daytime drama series.  She last appeared back on it in 2015.

Nighttime soap fans remember her fondly as Fallon on ABC’s Dynasty and its spin-off, The Colbys.

Once the secret was out on her appearance at the end of Friday’s episode,  Samms shared on Twitter: “She’s alive…!”

So what do you think of the twist? That Holly is alive and that Samms was on-screen? Who do you think has Holly? Share your theories below.
