What Did You Think Of One Life to Live's Season Finale?

Courtesy/TOLN

Courtesy/TOLN

In the final episode of the season of One Life to Live, it was not a good night for many of the citizens of Llanview and that’s putting it mildly! ( SPOILER ALERT: If you have not seen the episode do not read on).

First, Clint (Jerry verDorn) had a drunken and drugged meltdown at the Man of the Year Gala and ends up in stretcher and in restraints and carted off to the Psyche Ward at the hospital!  A big old bad “thank you” would be in order to Carl Peterson (Ron Raines) and his protege Jeffrey King (Corbin Bleu), who set up Clint for interfering in their mission somehow with their cult, and their plans for Todd and Victor Jr.

Clint’s daughter, Natalie (Melissa Archer) came out of the night emotionally and physically tattered! First, the man she is dating and just slept with Cutter (Josh Kelly), turns out to be a scoundrel, once again!  Nat learned from bartender Nikki (Jenni “JWoww” Farley), that the bar keep had been having sex with Cutter for months. Meanwhile, Nikki is holding Cutter’s dealings over his head, so he stays away from Natalie.   But then, Nikki spills a drink intentionally all over Natalie’s white dress! Next, poor Natalie watches in horror as her dad is being put in restraint and taken to the hospital. Then she pleads with the rest of the family to help him, but  she ends up along with Matthew (Rob Gorrie) being the only ones from the Buchanan clan to go check on Clint in the hospital!

Blair (Kassie DePaiva) has a tough night too! She got all upset and in tears crying over Todd during a speech made at the Man of the Year Gala! And yet, she still did not tell Viki (Erika Slezak) what trouble, or where on earth Todd went too! Later, Jack (Andrew Trischitta) has a heart to heart with his mom, only he just got done having sex with his summer school teacher, Kate (Alice Callahan)!

Tea (Florencia Lozano) and Dani (Kelley Missal) had a horrible night for the most part too!  First, Dani gets a snotty mouthful from Michelle, who shows up in the exact same dress at the gala, and then Tea freaks out when she learns Dani is with the much older Arturo (Paolo Seganti) as her date. As Tea tries to protect Dani from what she thinks could be a sexual predator, Dani tells Tea off and leaves with Arturo. These two end up in Arturo’s hotel room … having sex!

And then … for the season final cliffhanger, as Natalie (who has now sent Matthew and Michelle home) is waiting to see her dad in the hospital, the doctor comes to take her to Clint, and when she gets there, she sees what appears to be that he has just been in injected with a syringe … and then Natalie screams in horror! Like horror-movie horror!  For whom does Natalie see? None other than evil lunatic Allison Perkins (Barbara Garrick) who gleefully says with syringe in hand, “Hello Natalie!”

So OLTL fans, what did you think of the season finale episode? Were you shocked seeing Allison Perkins back for the cliffhanger?  How many characters do you think had a really bad night at the Man of the Year Gala?  Comment below! And if you have not seen the season finale, check it out below too!

I agree. I like Victor and I was excited to see him back. What upsets me is that is the last episode and they leave you at an immediate cliffhanger and don’t choose to continue it. At least tell us what happens to Victor and Todd, Tea Arturo and Dani, Jeffery and Chris, and most of all Clint Natalie and Allison. Very disappointing.

I think a lot of us knew Allison was coming back, but not in such a graphic way! OLTL has always had a dark side and the tradition continues. I’m ready for the online OLTL round two!

I agree. Having seasons is a bit disturbing considering that season 2 has not been announced. IMO they made the same huge mistake ABC made, having a big cliffhanger on the last episode. What if it doesn’t come back? What happened to wrapping things up in the season finale? I hate these unfinished endings. They left more questions unanswered than ABC. Unfortunately, for most of this season OLTL ran like those writing and producing it didn’t know what they were doing. Too many changes, new characters, unfamiliar places. It really stunk when all they had to do was copy what… Read more »

New viewer here. Who is Allison Perkins (the FABULOUS Barbara Garrick) and why is her return so significant?

Chris
Guest

Allison Perkins first came on OTL back when it was on ABC back in 1986. She was a volunteer nurse at Llanview Hospital who joined Mitch Laurence’s evil cult. Mitch brainwashed Allison to kidnap Clint and Viki’s baby Jessica. Allison kidnapped Jessica, but later brought back to her parents. She was then hit by a car and fell into a coma. Allison resurfaced several years later in 2001 long after she awoke from her coma, and sent Natalie from New Jersey to Llanview to befriend Jessica in college. Natalie later revealed to Jessica and her family that she was Clint… Read more »

I have always seen Allison Perkins/Barbara Garrick as a Cartoon Villian, a kooky kook silly villain in comparison to Heather Webber/Robin Mattson the queen of female villins who hold 2 pages of dark deeds done..

Carl is the new Mitch Laurence…Natalie pregnant by Cutter, and Alison plots to take the baby(twins) from her, Kate is an online porn star, and using an unwitting Jack in her movies… Ramas pregnant but is Vimal or David the father…Michelle is Carls daughter, and a drug dealer…Dani gets an STD from Arturo who is later found murdered…Did Tea kill him…Shelter catches fire(arson) leaving a drunken Blair trapped inside…will Todd rescue her? This is what id like to see happen next season…

Love your storylines…
How about The tattoo organization being run by the Living Victor Lord Sr.
And Viki and Dorian must track him down to retreive their family members
that have been taken… they are on the run and must depend upon each other to live.

And then they find out that Karen and Larry Wolek are involved too..
How delicious would that be.

BTW – I believe that Michelle is Alison’s daughter and Kate is a long lost daughter of Mitch Lawrence (Who might just have had a hand in the death and/or presumed death of Cole and Hope – in Port Charles).

jimh(leave it to beaver)
Guest

Like your ideas too…maybe Victor Sr. could be holding hostage a much alive Cole and Hope…and even Tea’s thought dead baby Victor jr. They could write that all in and make it believable.

love your storylines EXCEPT Natalie getting pregnant with cutters kid.. we dont even c enough of liam.. she needs to take care of one kid at a time! lol

they should write a different type of storyline for natalie like something she hasnt been through yet.. an illness is something i would wanna c her go through being she hasnt had that happen.. I just dont want her to be killed off the show if they do go alone with an illness storyline.

jimh(leave it to beaver)

You inspired me: maybe Nikki could put a dangerous drug in Natalies drink which causes her to have serious heart trouble and she’ll need a transplant just like her mother Viki…

love this fan fiction thread.

I wonder if there anyone on the new writers staff, that reads these.

Anyway – to bring these ideas to fruition they will need more that 50 half hr episodes. Bring OLTL back on a daily basis! (or minimum 4 days per week)

This is my third attempt to become a OLTL viewer as it was my favorite soap when it was on TV. But its just not hooking me yet. As a cliffhanger that’s supposed to have me dying to find out what happens, it just didn’t. Was there any doubt that Allison would show up? Hanging the episode on an actress of Melissa Archer’s abilities wasn’t a good thing.

Christy
Guest
Christy

it was B-movie acting, at best. I’ve watched all along, but have to say it was a poor ending in my opinion… so bad I like to think it’s just a bad dream Nat’s having while snoozing in the hospital waiting room.

Always think that perhaps this tat organization is Irene Manning, Victor Sr (can he still be alive?) and the evil Mitch Lawrence – even tho he’s been killed a time or two… there could be clones, you never know! ;-D

I was very disappointed in the final episode. I assume that was a regular episode that was cut short by the work stoppage in June and they just added the Allison Perkins part to the end……because there were no cliff hangers and no stories wrapped up. It was just another episode but with Allison at the end.
I’m a fan of OLTL for 45 yrs,. I stick with them no matter what. But that last episode was a huge disappointment.

It was a good finale. However, I thought the Dani – Arturro encounter was way too much. Icky. ( That will not have me tuning back in – to see them.) Jerry Ver Dorn stole the show. I wish we had seen more of RonRaines and Corbin Bleu. It was an easy guess for Aliston’s return. That scene was not good. It would have been better to see someone completely out of blue. It had already been revealed that Ron Raines character was her brother. Wish they had saved Corbin Bleu’s reveal as an evil character as the cliffhanger (… Read more »

It was good overall with some great acting by the cast but I must say the final scene was disappointing..We were promised a shocking return by a fan favorite, but in an episode prior to the finale, it was revealed that Carl Peterson sis is none other than Allison, so I am sure many of us figure out she was the “fan favorite” returning.

I honestly was not feeling it. OLTL re-started out very strong, but lost major momentum halfway through. Hopefully the new head scribes can pick the series back up from the rut it’s in once again, like it was when Ron had control of it.

I hope more previous cast members return, as well. Would love for Terri Conn (Aubrey) to return to cause trouble for Natalie / Cutter. And then, where in the Hell is Jessica?! Not a mention of her! Recast her if Bree Williamson is unavailable.

ICAM! Even though I’ve never been a fan of either Todd or Victor, I thought the first 2 weeks were really strong, but then everything just fell apart. I wish they’d explored Dani having a drug addiction more instead of pushing her into the arms of this older guy. For a show trying to build up a young fan base, I felt all the younger stories, including Matthew’s online girlfriend and Jack sleeping with his teacher, were just badly done and dull. My main disappointment with the stories is how most of the show is now centered around this tattoo… Read more »

If Bree Williamson can’t come back, wonder why they don’t ask Erin Torpey to come back as Jessica since she is the one who originated the role and she was good?

It was good and I really hope that there is going to be a second season because so many questions need to be answered. I LOVE Allison but really, truly thought it should have been Viki walking into that hospital room and seeing Allison. Jerry verDorn stole the last couple of shows, hope to see more.

Michael, what do you mean by Nikki is holding Cutter’s dealings over his head so that he stays away from Natalie? Doe Cutter’s dealings have to do with Cutter’s shady dealings at Shelter (re: the drug and call girl ring), or their past fling together?

I took it to mean that Cutter is still into the con game. I still want to know how he got out of that prison in Kentucky.

I agree with the person who said once Carl revealed that Allison Perkins was his sister, it was pretty easy to guess that she was the former cast member returning so it wasn’t as much of a shock. I’d much rather have seen Starr walk in by Blair, or John to Natalie. I am still having a hard time getting used to the Matthew and Destiny recasts (Desitny in particular was terrible casting) so I PRAY PRAY PRAY the show can get 1 or 2 more former cast members to return for season 2. Recasting characters won’t do it for… Read more »

Like everyone else said in other posts, once Carl was revealed to be Allison Perkins brother, I knew she would return. It made sense. I was thinking it would have been nicer if she would have held someone else captive, like Starr or Jessica. This would have been a great way to introduce the characters we’ve been wanting to see since it relaunched in April. The last few episodes picked up and I like the Carl Peterson character and his interaction with Dorian. I would love to see he and Clint square off. Looking forward to Season 2 and do… Read more »

Heather Webber/Robin Mattson is the queen of female villains!!
She is suburb incomparable!! in a league of her own..

I have always seen Allison Perkins/Barbara Garrick as a Cartoon Villian, a kooky kook silly villain in comparison to Heather Webber/Robin Mattson..

I look forward the story, but geez I just can not take Allison Perkins/Barbara Garrick seriously as being a true villain, but she is fun to watch..

What a GREAT season one cliffhanger!!! I loved it. Prospect park has done a great job with both shows. Many people complaining about so many changes the first season but all must understand we are in a new world of media and the networks do not want to put the money in soaps. Two days a week of both shows is great. They are about 26 minutes long so no much shorter than the one hour eposides on ABC. Acting is great, sets are wonderful, and I will follow them both into season two. GREAT JOB PROSPECT

This was a spectacular season one for the show. I hope season 2 will start soon, so fans can stay current with the story line and not forget about it. The writers have left so much stuff open and unanswered. I was very disappointed to not have my 2 new episodes and my update showing on HULU. Come on guys, get it in gear and the show back on for season 2.

I was a little surprised when I saw Allison but not totally since she had been mentioned but the surprise was in where we saw her. I totally loved the whole “season” and I hope Season 2 begins soon. I’m having withdrawals. I would love to see Todd come back soon also. Victor was a little too violent for me this time around so I’m not sure if I were Tia I would want to be around him. Has a date for Season 2 to begin been set yet?

And the actors have not even been contacted to prepare for production. Robin Strasser says she was told that TPTB are “strategizing” so there’s no word. I don’t think that’s encouraging. I would imagine the employees are worried. I am concerned because PP hasn’t been forthcoming and honest since this began. Playing the bait and switch…4 days down to 2 days….then saying it would be uninterrupted, then saying it was doing “seasons”…and adding “season 1” to all of the videos. So my attitude now is ….I believe what I see. If and when season 2 comes to life, I’ll be… Read more »

Really liked the toln version of OLTL, and I didn’t think that I would. I stayed away from spoilers so that I could enjoy the story – so Allison’s appearance gave me the right kind of soapy jolt. I have to admit that I thought the show was gone forever, so to get a few dozen more episodes has been a treat. Not convinced though that it’ll be back. I kind of wish that if they didn’t have the money to do a full year’s worth of shows, that they would have just sold it back to ABC and/or let… Read more »

TONIGHT: 73rd Primetime Emmy Awards on CBS

Who will take home the gold at Sunday night’s 73rd annual Primetime Emmy Awards?  Well, from the looks of it .two heavy favorites going into it are Ted Lasso in the comedy categories, and The Crown in the dramatic categories, but as we have seen on previous Emmys there may be upsets afoot.

Other leading contenders through the night will include the series: The Mandalorian, WandaVision, The Handmaid’s Tale, Saturday Night Live, Lovecraft CountryThe Queen’s Gambit and Mare of Easttown.

Cedric the Entertainer will host the three-hour special on CBS beginning at 8 pm EST emanating from the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles.  Pandemic and all there will be a return to an opening number.

The broadcast’s executive producer, Ian Stewart, confirmed an opening number, when he previously told Deadline, the number “is going to be a lot of people participating, singing, rapping.  It’s hopefully going to be a very impactful start, a ton of fun.”

The Primetime Emmys will have nominees in attendance, with a more limited amount virtually, and those who have tickets can stay in the venue through the whole show, unlike the Grammys or Oscars were those nominated were ushered in and out.  Look for the Emmys to take place outside the theatre under a tent.

One Life to Live alum Renée  Elise Goldsberry (Ex-Evangeline) will be competing in the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie for her role in Hamilton.  Another OLTL alum, Jonathan Groff (Ex-Henry), is nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie for his role in Hamilton, as well.

In the Outstanding Actor in a Drama Series, Sterling K. Brown tries to win another Emmy for his role as Randall Pearson on This Is Us.   To view all the nominees, head on over to the TV Academy’s website.

This past June, CBS also aired the 48th annual Daytime Emmy Awards in a pre-packaged show for broadcast due to Covid-19 restrictions.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Remembers Carly Just as She Is Marrying Jason

After nine months of being “Mike”, Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) had a major breakthrough as his memory is all coming back to him now (as the Celine Dion song says), and in the process the Tan-O has burned to the ground, signaling the the probable end to the Nixon Falls arc of the story.

As the story picked-up on Thursday, Nina’s (Cynthia Watros) plot to keep Sonny for herself and away from Carly majorly backfired on her.  Not only does Phyllis (Joyce Guy) now know that Nina lied about “Mike’s” identify the entire time, but Peter August (Wes Ramsey) is running wild and free heading back to Port Charles to claim his baby and Maxie (Kirsten Storms), after setting fire to the building.

Courtesy/ABC

Since “Mike” ran in to save Nina and got hit by a beam in the process, he is alone in the burning Tan-O enveloped by flames, but that triggers the beginning of his memory coming back.

Meanwhile, back in Port Charles, Jason (Steve Burton) and Carly (Laura Wright) are at their wedding, with the five family mob bosses present with a plot of their own and everyone wondering if Jarly will say “I do'”.    The two light a candle together for those loved ones no longer with them … ah, Sonny!

Back the burning Tan-O, Sonny is visited by the vision of the real Mike (Max Gail) who tells him it’s time for him to go home now.  A conflicted Sonny tells Mike he is very happy in Nixon Falls with Nina, but Mike tells him he needs to know his past in order to move forward.  When Sonny has flashes of his violent past it frightens him, and he says whatever family he has is better off without him in their lives.

Jax (Ingo Rademacher) tries to text Maxie while still in Nixon Falls with Nina to watch out for Peter, but she is attending and managing Carly and Sonny’s wedding, so she doesn’t pick up the phone!

Inside the Tan-O, Sonny sees a vision of woman, who when she turns and faces him is Carly. While Sonny is lying on the floor and is engulfed in flames and trapped, Mike tells Sonny he can die as “Mike” or live on as the man he truly is, Sonny.  It is then Sonny calls out “Carly!”

So, what did you think of the episode? Do you think Carly and Jason will get married? Will Sonny tells Nina he remembers? What will Nina’s next move be? Are you glad Sonny seems to have his memory back? The episode featured another strong performance by Maurice Benard.  Share your thoughts below.
