Tess and Cutter admit that they married each other out of spite, and now they’re stuck in a crummy motel room with no money, no allies and no plan. Brody arrives and he’s determined to get through to Jessica so he forces a kiss on Tess, with unexpected results. Cutter admits to Joey, in front of Aubrey, that he married Tess to get his hands on the Buchanan money, and tells Joey to inform Clint to have the checkbook handy if they want to get Jessica the help she needs. Aubrey denies any knowledge of Cutter’s scheme, but Joey is seeing the light. When Joey informs Clint of Cutter’s demands, Clint keeps his dire medical condition secret. Joey confesses he thinks Cutter and Aubrey are in this scam together and Clint confirms, but persuades Joey to keep this knowledge under wraps until they get Jessica back. Meanwhile Jessica’s latest alter, Wes, who is patterned after Brody’s old Navy Seal comrade, slips away from Cutter and Brody and winds up at Capricorn where “he” comes onto Aubrey and Rama. Joey rushes to Kelly’s side when he learns of her injury and he and Dorian console one another. Joey confesses he doesn’t know what he would do without Kelly in his life.

Kelly is burning with desire (for Joey), and waits for John in his office for a little distraction. Marty overhears John and Kelly making arrangements to hook-up at his place later. Natalie tries to call John to tell him what she heard on the tape, but he doesn’t pick up, so she takes Liam and goes to find him in person. Kelly finds Marty waiting in John’s room, and things get out of hand. Natalie arrives at John’s, which appears empty, and discovers a note directing John to meet on the roof so she goes there to find Marty preparing a romantic dinner for John. John discovers Kelly bleeding on his bathroom floor. John goes with Kelly to the hospital. Kelly manages to tell John that Marty stabbed her and that she heard Natalie in his room. Assuming John is close behind her, Natalie confronts Marty with what she learned from the tape. Marty is determined to keep Natalie from telling John he is Liam’s father, and the ensuing struggle sends Marty over the edge, literally! Natalie hesitates before pulling Marty to safety, but Marty doesn’t hesitate to push Natalie off the roof. The information Kelly provides about her attack sends John back to the Angel Square Hotel where he finds Natalie’s broken body. Natalie barely manages to reveal that Marty has Liam on the roof. Brody comes upon John and Natalie and rushes to the roof to rescue “his son”. When he gets to the roof Marty gets the jump and knocks Brody out. John takes Natalie to the hospital. She is frantic about Liam but John can’t reach Brody. Brody regains consciousness and discovers Liam and Marty are nowhere to be found.


Viki learns of Clint’s imminent death. Todd continues to insist that Tomas tried to kill him while Tomas continues to insist he is innocent. Tomas dodges Tea’s questions prompting her to resign as his attorney. Blair’s feelings for Tomas are conflicted. Dorian, Starr and Blair wait for Kelly to come out of surgery. Viki arrives to support Dorian and is horrified when she learns Natalie has been injured and Liam is missing.


Cutter reveals his plan that he married Tess because he’s after the Buchanan money on Monday, May 9.

Kelly finds a vengeful and crazy Marty in John’s room, determined to let Kelly know once and for all that John belongs to her on Tuesday, May 10.

Brody and Cutter are present when Tess yields control to a new personality, Wes, based on Brody’s old Navy comrade Wednesday, May 11.

Natalie and Marty’s struggle results in Marty’s going over the side of the roof, where she clings to the edge. Natalie considers letting her fall, but ultimately pulls her to safety. Marty, however, is not so generous on Thursday, May 12.

Joey’s devastated over Kelly’s condition. He sticks close to her, but she barely comes to. When she’s wheeled off for surgery, he breaks down in Dorian’s arms on Friday, May 6.

Soaptown Loose Lips Spoilers

ONE LIFE TO LIVE: Those rumors that Brandon Buddy will return for the finale seems to have alot of steam behind it. Brandon Buddy's rep has said Brandon's return has been verbally confirmed between him and the show and he will be returning as Cole before the show goes off the air......Also hearing that even though Howarth is returning and we will see the tale of two Todd's it is being said he will make an early exit, as he did not sign on for the finale when he was negotiating a return, which if true again things change, it makes me think that Trevor just may be the real Todd, if there is even a real Todd at all....Hmmmmm, Guess we will have to wait and see.....What connection does Todd and Tomas have that they hate each other so much and why is John wondering the same thing?....Will Thorsten return as Patrick on OLTL also? HIS body was never found as well so it seems every time Kaye plays a character they die but not really. HIH? Oh yea this is a soap opera! Remember on PC he died and came back as a vampire?.....Get ready for some exits sooner then later as TPTB are cleaning house before the so called end.

ONE LIFE TO LIVE: Major upheavals and reshuffling coming in late July some swill stay and some will go. Just heard the newest addition to the cast is not a happy camper. When he signed to come on they was no talk of cancellations. Seems Anne Sweeney made promises that were all false and never intended to keep her word. She knew what was coming down and didn't bother to mention it.....Another cast member keeps going back and forth with what they want to do. First they said they wanted out then they said they wanted to stay till the end. The sad thing is this cast member was offered parts and a few guest shots and now feels trapped between self-interest and loyalty, other cast members are also going through the same problem....Look for Cole to return sometime in August or September deal still in the works......More personalities come forward for Jessica and the newest is Wes a young kid who is very similar to Viki's Tommy. But lets not forget about Bess who is returning sooner then later......Could Nate be going after Ms Deena who came to Llanview for James and now has intentions of going after baby bro.....Liam REALLY proves to be the new Hope as Liam faces another crisis after John rescues him from Marty.

Spoilers / Articles From May 10th SOD & SOW

SOW – May Sweeps – RC talking
Liam and Ryder both have big story in May. Ryder’s custody is decided and this escalates the hatred between Ford and Tess. Plus, there is a very good chance that the truth will come out about Liam’s paternity, and one of the parents will know, if not both. ( great pic of Jolie/Liam, old pic, but love it)

SOD – Natalie has the Proof!
As Marty and John seem to rekindle their romance this week, Nat comes one step closer to learning that Marty is responsible for Liam’s paternity switch “the truth would be life changing” says MA

After offering to help Gigi and Rex, who think they’re about to listen to a recording of Shane’s private therapy session, Nat discovers the voice on the tape is really Marty – but doesn’t realize she has the truth at her finger tips “everything about Marty baffles her” says MA “she just thinks Marty is insane. She’s constantly there and trying to do something, whatever it may be. Nat just doesn’t trust her. It’s like, what’s up with this chick?”

Rex & Gigi persuade Nat not to listen to the tape anymore “If Nat has that information, the chances things could get better again would be much higher” says MA. Regardless, she agrees to hand over the evidence to Rex, who promptly returns it to the doctor. Meanwhile, Marty thinks she’s got all her bases covered and desperately tries to reignite the spark she once shared with John by kissing him.

By week’s end, Nat zeros in on obtaining the tape and finding out what Marty has up her sleeve. Can Nat win back John once and for all? “She doesn’t know how John would react, but I think I can say that if he knew the truth, there’d definitely be a bigger chance of him starting to forgive her” nods the actress “the pain with Natalie lying, combined with the fact he lost his son, is what made it so much more difficult to get past.”

As for Brody, “It would definitely hurt Brody a lot” says MA “ I don’t know if it would take away from their friendship, but it’s one of those things where people take news differently than you may expect. The last thing she wants to do is crush Brody anymore than she wanted to crush John. She doesn’t want him to be hurt just for her own happiness”.

A Tale of Two Todds

(SoapOperaNetwork.com) -- If you've been living under a rock, you may not have known that Roger Howarth was returning to ABC's "One Life to Live" beginning Friday, May 13. The only question was whether or not he'd be playing the role of Todd Manning or some new character that just happens to look like Todd pre-2003, when Trevor St. John took over the role after it was revealed his initial role as Walker Laurence was really Todd with a face lift. In "The Tale of Two Todd's," Howarth marks his triumphant return to the drama series with the infamous scar and all, so what's the deal? Who is truly Todd?

Based on images released today by the network, it looks like St. John has in fact been portraying an impostor Todd, while Howarth's Todd looks to have been locked away in some sort of psyche ward for the past eight years.

According to ABC, Howarth began filming on Wednesday, May 4. "One Life to Live" Head Writer Ron Carlivati made the decision to quickly insert Howarth on the show shortly after the network canceled the long running soap opera citing poor financial returns from Madison Avenue.

Okay, so what's the scoop on Clint? All I read was "imminent death" and "medical condition." Is this something you think they'll do since the show is ending? Sort of like Alan Spaulding on GL? Oh, how sad.

What we are seeing now on OLTL was filmed back in March, so none of this was influenced by the cancellation notice.

I think that almost makes it worse. I just dont see a need for more Bo/Nora tragedy cancellation or not.

Exclusive: More Tragedy for One Life to Live's Bo and Nora
May 13, 2011 09:59 AM ET
by Michael Logan

Can things get any crappier for One Life to Live's Bo and Nora Buchanan? Oh, yes indeed. The fan-fave couple - played by Emmy winners Robert S. Woods and Hillary B. Smith - are currently in a mess o' trouble because their teen son Matthew killed Eddie Ford, the town psychopath, and they have yet to report it. Their intentions are good - they're trying to find the best way to help Matthew (Eddie Alderson) through the legal system - but it's a clear obstruction of justice made worse by the fact that Bo is the police commissioner and Nora is the D.A. Now they've got bigger problems: This coming week, their kid is punched in the head during an altercation with Eddie's son, Nate. On May 23, Matthew will collapse and, later, he's diagnosed as being very nearly brain-dead. Then comes word that Bo's brother Clint (Jerry verDorn) needs a new heart or he will die. You can see where this plot might go. TV Guide Magazine spoke with Woods and Smith about this tragic one-two punch for the Buchanans and - of course - that even bigger blow called cancellation.

TV Guide Magazine: Before we discuss Bo and Nora's troubles, let's get the real-life trauma out of the way. How are you guys dealing with the end of OLTL?
Woods: We were all blindsided by the news that we'll go off the air in January, but we're doing OK, I guess. It's weird. We thought we were in pretty good shape.
Smith: When I was on The Doctors we got canceled and we were only two weeks ahead back then. It was so abrupt. I like that we have seven months to get our act together. Even before we got the official word, I kind of thought we were in trouble and I was concerned that they'd stop us before we had a chance to write appropriate endings.
Woods: All of us are determined to go out on top - proud, strong, head held high.
Smith: I want us to go out with every fan celebrating how much they love the show, not by boycotting us as some people want to do. We should keep OLTL vital and alive for as long as possible so that when we do go off the air we all feel satiated. After that, we can decide how we want to react, but while we're still on the air, let's celebrate. I know there's a feeling of great helplessness and ownership. How can you do this to what is mine? Our show is a legacy that keeps our audience connected to the past, to their upbringing, to their mothers and grandmothers. And it's being dismissed. Our fans aren't just heartbroken about losing their soap, they're heartbroken for the genre.

TV Guide Magazine: Despite all of Bo and Nora's troubles, isn't it great they're going through this hell together? There are so few real couples in soaps anymore. Watching you two back together makes us feel better about the world, schlocky as that sounds.
Woods: It's what this medium is all about. It's about the decisions you have to make that put you to the test. Bo and Nora are being tested emotionally, physically and spiritually but they're hanging together and fighting as a team. They make each other strong enough to take on the world, which is cool.
Smith: We're living in an ADD world and so many relationships reflect that. Despite their struggles and estrangements in the past, Bo and Nora have an enviable relationship, and that's what people want to watch. [Laughs] Just this morning, a lady at Lord & Taylor told me how lucky I am to be married to a real hunk like Bo Buchanan. Woodsy, she told me to tell you, "Hey, from Mae at Lord & Taylor out in Bridgewater, New Jersey!"
Woods: I might have to make a trip out there. [Laughs]. That reminds me of all the times women have come up to my wife, Loyita, and said, "I wish I had a husband like Bo Buchanan." And Loyita always says, "Yeah, me, too." [They both laugh hysterically]
Smith: One time back in 1990-something, one of the people in our production office called me to get a hold of Bob because he was on vacation. I had to explain that we were only married on the show.
Woods: Hey, if you can fool the people you work with who should know better, that's a real testimonial!

TV Guide Magazine: Aren't Bo and Nora in major hot water here?
Woods: They're trying to figure out how to go about dealing with the murder legally while still doing what's best for their son.
Smith: They're stepping through a minefield of emotions. Neither will be able to live with themselves if they break the code of ethics they live by. They know what the end result is going to have to be. They just have to figure out the process, the best way to approach the inevitable, while still trying to wrap their heads around the fact that Clint manipulated all of them. He manipulated their son into killing someone. That's huge.

TV Guide Magazine: This is one of those great soap stories that has every viewer thinking, "What would I do if my kid was in this kind of trouble?"
Smith: A friend of mine has always said to her child, "If something bad occurs, you call me immediately and tell me exactly what happened - the truth and nothing but the truth - and I'll grab a shovel and help you bury the body!" The important thing is to tell the truth, confess to what you did and own it. But Bo and Nora are having trouble with that.
Woods: And as angry and resentful as they are with Clint, because you can so easily hate the guy, they still love him because that's what they're always about.
Smith: Well, Bo can love him. Nora can't!

TV Guide Magazine: Even if they ultimately to do the right thing, dragging ass like this is really bad. They're guilty by reason of delay.
Smith: They are definitely obstructing justice and Nora could be disbarred.
Woods: They could both be out of jobs and disgraced in the community. But because this is about their son they love so much, they're ready to go right to the edge. How close to the edge can they get and find the best possible outcome for this? How much time can they buy?

TV Guide Magazine: And then, suddenly, both Matthew and Clint are dying.
Smith: Things get so bad that Bo and Nora actually set aside the murder — their minds just can't handle that much. Decisions need to be made about Matthew. They're told he has minimal brain activity just as Clint's condition is suddenly worse. They're being jerked around from one tragedy to another. It's too, too much. Matthew's getting worse. Clint's getting worse. All they need now is a tornado to hit Llanview.
Woods: And Bo has horrible guilt, feeling responsible for causing Clint's heart attack. But at the same time, Bo wants him behind bars, paying for what he's done. Yet here's Clint barely fighting for his life. It's pretty complicated stuff.

TV Guide Magazine: This sounds like strong, really adult drama, the kind we haven't seen on a soap 10 times before.
Woods: I'll tell ya, this story has pulled a lot out of me. Needless to say, there are a lot of times when you come to work thinking, "Oh, God, let's get this done and go home." But this material, man, you can really do something with it!

TV Guide Magazine: When Clint knows he's terminal, he goes on TV and confesses to killing Eddie Ford, a pretty decent if not downright heroic thing to do. Don't Bo and Nora think, "Hey, why don't we just shut the hell up and all this will go away?"
Smith: Oh, Nora goes right there! Of course, she does!
Woods: [Laughs] It's like, "Hey, here's the solution to our Eddie problem! Wanna go have lunch?
Smith: [Laughs] "Works for me! I think we're kinda done here."
TV Guide Magazine: OK, you wisenheimers, there will be happier days for Bo and Nora, right? Tell me they will live through all this tragedy to jitterbug again.
Woods: [Laughs] It'll have to be at a much slower tempo! Nothing on this body moves as fast as it used to. Loyita and I recently went to Billy Warlock's house for his birthday. We're having a lot of laughs and a few drinks and then we all start dancing. Well, the next day, I am so stiff I cannot move and Loyita's knee is as big as a cantaloupe. So I don't know about any more jitterbugging.
Smith: Oh, my God, even back in the day we would do those jitterbugging scenes and be using Tiger Balm for weeks!

TV Guide Magazine: It sure would be a great way to end the show in January.
Woods: Well, maybe we could do a fox trot in the last episode. Maybe a waltz. [Laughs] But definitely no barrel rolls!

He also made added a clause that he has the option to leave if he so desires but with no payment. Guess it's a wait see if he will stay or go.....When Howarth returned to ABC many of his ex cat mates were thrilled to see him return. Those rumors that Roger had a fling with one cast member which added to his exit have been put to rest now that he is back....This was mentioned a while ago but things are changing and rewrites are coming in like mad. Tale of Two Todds has been written four times and they say they have it right this time or so they say....What if someone was behind Marty's breakdown and they have been manulipating her since she got out of the St Anne's and who would have something to gain if they did? Why does Marty call Todd when she goes missing?..ROXY ARLERT!!!!


Susan Haskells exit

(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Last week on ABC's "One Life to Live" viewers were left on the edge of their seat after Marty Saybrooke lost her rocker and killed her therapist Dr. Burhari (Tamela Aldridge), assaulted cop Brody Lovett (Mark Lawson), nearly stabbed Kelly Cramer (Gina Tognoni) to death and got into a battle with Natalie Buchanan (Melissa Archer) that resulted in Ms. Buchanan being thrown off the roof of a building while Marty looked on gleefully above (not to mention kidnapping her baby), all the while obsessively preparing a romantic dinner for her fantasy boyfriend John McBain (Michael Easton). This week has thus far proven to be an another equally eventful week on the the soap as Marty has gone on the run now that the police are hot on her trail. And just what about that missing therapy session tape? All we can tell is to expect someone very unexpected to take possession of it.

While on the lam, Marty gets mixed up with not one, but two men looking for a little action -- smut peddler Rick Powers (Austin Peck), and Wes, Marty's gal pal Jessica's (Bree Williamson) personification of her old boytoy Wes Granger (played by Justin Paul Kahn from 2008-09), prompting the psychotic shrink to think Jess is the crazy one (imagine that). Now, you might think that all this would mark the beginning of the end for Ms. Saybrooke, but you'd be wrong...technically.

As previously reported, Susan Haskell, who portrays Marty on "One Life," is reportedly leaving the drama series. While a network representative was unable to confirm those reports when news broke in early April, Soap Opera Network has since learned that the actress is indeed leaving the drama series in the very near future. While a last airdate has not been set nor will ABC release the information, we have been assured, however, that when Marty leaves you'll not only be left on the wondering how that.just.happened, but you'll be glued to your TV set for weeks to come in the aftermath!

We've learned there's a major reason why, but we just can't spill it! Say it ain't so!

In the meantime, look for Marty's path to get intertwined with several more Llanviewites, including Todd Manning (Trevor St. John), the man who twice raped her, and his mysterious brother-in-law Tomas Delgado (Ted King), one of which will learn her dirty little secret. But will she uncover what Todd is hiding as well? And what will become of baby Liam? Tune in to find out!
