The latest comings and goings for the month of December and beyond.
The Llanview PD is about to have another murder mystery on their hands when Eddie Ford (John Wesley Shipp) meets a grizzly fate on Tuesday, December 14. The long list of suspects includes his next of kin, his ex-wife, and yes, even Llanview's perennial suspect Todd Manning (Trevor St. John). But only one of them actually pulled the trigger. But which one?
Carolyn Hinsey wrote on her Facebook page on Monday that "Did you guys notice that 'coming attractions' are back on 'OLTL?' Look for a new open, new credits and a few new bumpers this week, too. Llanview is alive and well!" On a related note, the previews for the following episode returned with Monday's show (in addition to a few other changes) and the opening credits were updated to include Nic Robuck (James), along with Lenny Platt (Nate) and Sean Ringgold (Shaun), both of whom were recently upgraded from recurring to contract status with "One Life to Live," as well as a few new background graphics. The soap also began broadcasting in "digital widescreen" format on Monday.
Kourtney Kardashian's upcoming lawyer character now has a name -- Kassandra Kavanaugh. Look for her scenes to air sometime in March.
Destiny's (Shenell Edmonds) adoring boyrfiend Darren (J.J. Singleton) is back on Monday, December 27, when he arranges a little surprise for his lady love.
Get ready to see some more of Detective Theo Price. Max Tapper noted on his Facebook page on December 3 that he was "On my way in to the set. Late day today. Shooting scenes with Todd Manning, its gonna be goooood!"
Nick Choksi is back as Clint's (Jerry verDorn) hired hand Vimal Patal (who was last seen carrying out his orders in the DNA lab at Llanview Hospital) in scenes airing in the coming weeks.
Speaking of verDorn, he has posted some pictures on his website of how the fictional town of Llanview will be celebrating the Christmas holiday in upcoming episodes of "One Life to Live." Click here and here to check them out.
Upcoming airdates for David A. Gregory (Ford) include December 7, 9, 10, 13, 14, 20, 22, and 29.
"One Life to Live" has released four new audition scripts. The first, which is a "wide release," is for the role of "Barton." The scene opens with him him asking "Lily" what a nice girl like her is doing all alone on Valentine's Day. When she responds that she is waiting for her date to arrive, Barton suggests that he could be her date instead. She tells him no and to leave her alone. However, he asks Lily how long she intends to wait for her date, to which she responds that her date is on her way to meet her. Barton tells her that didn't realize she was a gay and apologizes. Then he asks her again where her date is. Lily says that he is not there yet. Confused Barton asks her if she is with a guy now. Lily responds that she only told him that she was dating a woman to get rid of him. As the scene ends, Barton seems relieved that she is not really a lesbian and Lily impatiently asks if there is anything at all that she can say to get rid of him permanently.
The next script is for the role of Repo, which is also a "wide release." The scene opens with him telling "Kelly" that his old lady is away so they can talk now. Kelly asks if they know one another. He responds that just a moment ago she was ready to shack up with him to get under her boyfriend's skin, and states that he is more than willing to help her out. Kelly informs him that she'll pass on the proposition, claiming that she is no slut. She also tells Repo that his girlfriend should dump him. Ticked off, he asks her what the hell her problem is. She fires back that he obviously has no respect for women. Repo orders her to shut up before he does something he might regret. He then tells her that her boyfriend needs to learn how to keep her in line. Kelly reminds him that she's not somebody's trained dog. As the scene ends, Repo asks her boyfriend what kind of a man he is, that he would let his woman dominate their relationship. He goes on to say that she has probably flirted or cheated on him before, perhaps even right in front of him, and asks him to tell him if he is telling the truth or not.
The third script is for the role of "Kris." The scene opens with her yelling at "Emma" and calling her a slut. Emma asks if she is talking to her. Kris says yeah, and demands that she stop batting her eyes at her boyfriend. Emma tries to calm her down, claiming that she has no interest at all in him. Growing upset, Kris asks why, is he not good enough for her or something. Emma says that maybe she should do like "he" did and fall head over heels with the first person she meets, and marry him. Kris shouts that he's already married. Emma responds that he's only getting what he deserves. Kris then confronts her man, and asks him if he tried to hook up with this slut the moment her head was turned. Emma then reminds Kris that she is no slut, and urges her to end the relationship, telling her that sometimes your man just isn't all that into you. As the scene ends, Kris fires back, telling Emma that she doesn't know who the hell she thinks she is, but that she just needs to keep her eyes off of her man for good.
The final script is for a "Priest." The scene opens with him announcing that everyone is gathered for the christening of two children. He asks one of the mothers if she is ready to present her child. After she responds in the affirmative, he asks who will be responsible for helping the children lead a moral and faithful life. The mom responds that "we will, with God's help." The Priest then asks everyone to pray for the infants, and leads the group in a prayer. The mom asks the Lord to please hear their prayer. The Priest then proceeds to baptize them. Later, he congratulates the grandparents on the christening, telling the grandmother that it must be a happy day for them. The grandmother asks if it really shows that much. The grandfather responds that her ear-to-ear grin gave her away her joy. As the scene ends, the Priest tells her that he sees a lot of those and wishes the family the best of luck. The grandmother thanks him and says that it was a rather lovely ceremony. The Priest states that it was his pleasure as he starts to walk away.

Spoilers For The Week Of Dec 20th
(SoapOperaNetwork.com) -- Todd Manning's youngest son Sam gets a new face just in time for Christmas.
The Philidelphia Enquirer is reporting that Plymouth Meeting, Pennsylvania five-year-old Patrick Gibbons, Jr. has been hired by producers at "One Life to Live" to take over the recurring role beginning Wednesday, December 22nd.
The kindergartener replaces twins Jacob and Luke Clodfelter who had played Sam since 2007 (the role was originated by another set of twins, Zachary and Daniel Frisch, in 2006). The casting shake-up also ages the character -- but only slightly -- since Sam's fifth birthday wasn't supposed to be until February 6th. Also oft referred to throughout the past year, Sam hasn't been seen onscreen since January. Sam Manning is the son of Todd Manning and the late Margaret Cochran

Who's The Real Daddy?
The birth of Jess and Nat's babies isn't exactly going to come off without a hitch," previews Carlivati with a chuckle. "Underneath the surface is the paternity of the kids." After all, Clint made it clear he didn't want Ford connected to the Buchanan family. Could he have tampered with the test results? "There is a chance that Jessica's baby is actually Ford's." the scribe confirms. In fact, it's looking a lot as if neither sister really really knows who fathered their respective babies, which will cause big trouble!. "Natalie having told so many lies will be major, and you always know that when Jessica is just going along and everything is great, disaster is on the horizon."
Will Clint's Duplicity be Exposed?
Clint's devious schemes beging to unravel around him. "He's commited a couple of acts that are pretty out there, and so the question is how long he can keep this all going. How much destruction will he cause? It's really set up for Clint to destroy his family whether intentionally or unintentionally," previews Carlivati. When Bo begins piecing together recent events, it will "lead him right to Clint." Something tells us there's an epic battler brewing between the Buchanan boys.
Who Killed Eddie?
The fallout from Eddie's murder "will have far-reaching consequences on the whole canvas," promises writer, noting that the local cops will have no shortage of suspects thanks to the baddie's recent behavior. When Todd becomes the prime suspect, expect trust issues to rock his and Tea's marriage. But is Todd the guilty party? "We certainly know he's capable," concedes the scribe with a grin.
Viki & Dorian Team Up Against Echo
Every now and again, longtime rivals Dorian and Viki find themselves united against a common enemy. Having done her fair share of damage to Charlie's marriage in the past, Dorian becomes a most unlikely ally during Viki's latest crisis! "As Charlie builds this family with Echo, Rex, and Shane, Viki plots with Dorian to bring her down," he explains. "Viki won't allow this woman to have her happiness. Her marriage is at stake." Although Viki managed to win the first round years ago, will her luck hold out....or is Charlie slated to become her latest ex-husband?
Kelly Fights for Joey's Heart.
Sure, Joey's got a new lady in his life, but that doesn't mean Kelly is ready to give up on making the hunk hers! "There is that nosey-reporter part of Kelly that sees a schemer in Aubrey," says Carlivati. "She starts trying to figure out what this girl is up to. She believes that if she can find something wrong with Aubrey, then Joey will get rid of her." Perhaps the key to Kelly's success lies with Cutter? ALl the scribe will say of the soon-to-arrive guy is that he's connected to Aubrey.
In other Llanview News
The contents of the box that Eli left for Blair will literally open up a whole new world for the lovelorn lady. "Blair finds something very intriguing inside that takes her on a new journey that will lead her to a mystery man." Carlivati reveals. Meanwhile, don't expect David to remain locked up much longer! "He's pining for Dorian and plotting his escape." But his favorite politician isn't the only person on his mind. Look for David to seek revenge on those who wronged him.....namely, Clint and Rex! "There will definitely be hell to pay!"
