One Life To Live Recaps
OLTL Week of January 17, 2011
John was horrified to see Roxy in Marty's hospital bed. The nurses rushed to make sure she was alive as Roxy wondered what happened. Meanwhile, having escaped her room, Marty headed to the nursery to check out baby McBain. John caught her with his son in her arms and realized the situation was precarious. John played along as Marty talked about "our son," and assured Marty that they were all going home.
Natalie was horrified to see Marty with her baby and started screaming. Marty grew hysterical and locked the door, leaving John and Natalie on the other side of the glass. Natalie played along and aplogized to Marty for hurting her. After Natalie left, John unlocked the door and convinced Marty to hand him the baby ... which he then handed to Natalie. Frantic, Marty collapsed to the floor and was wheeled out to St. Ann's.
On the witness stand, Nate admitted he had lied to protect his mother; he had not murdered his father. Téa demanded that Inez be arrested for the murder of Eddie Ford. Téa wanted Nate's charges dropped. The judge asked for a brief recess and ordered Nora to look into the Inez accusation.
Dani hugged Nate, but he was upset at Téa for coercing him into admitting he hadn't killed his father. Téa assured him the judge would throw the case out. Nate apologized for stealing Todd's cufflinks, then told Dani he just wanted his dad gone. The judge came back into the courtroom, adjourned the hearing and said that Nate had to be returned to his cell. Nate apologized to his mother. "All I wanted to do is protect you," he said. Inez denied having murdered Eddie, but Bo and Nora demanded to know how murder weapon landed in her house. Bo said he found out about being drugged; Inez told them that nothing had happened with Bo.
At the hospital, Kelly explained the whole Aubrey situation to Rex. She didn't believe for a minute that Cutter was Aubrey's brother. Rex did some investigating and discovered that Aubrey had a brother named Cutter, but Kelly remained determined to get the scoop on her rival. Joey almost caught a kiss between Aubrey and her "brother." While he, Cutter and Aubrey worked out together at the gym, Joey told Cutter he didn't care if he was completely cut off from the Buchanan fortune. Cutter promised he'd take care of the Kelly situation.
Aubrey wanted to have it out with Kelly about showing Joey the incriminating photo. After their confrontation, Aubrey staged it so it appeared Kelly had hit her. After Joey ordered Kelly to leave, Aubrey fell into his arms crying, "You don't know about the names that she called me." That didn't sound like the Kelly he knows, puzzled Joey.
Blair ran into Cris at the gym. She wanted Cris to look at the painting again. He saw a "B" on the back of the painting. It was a watermark on the canvas. Blair and Cris thought they should go to Paris to check out the painting and Layla.
Joey and Aubrey went to see his two new nephews. Aubrey went on about how Kelly attacked her. Joey wondered what was going on between Aubrey and Cutter. He added that Cutter was nervous when Joey said his uncle was the police commissioner. Aubrey said she didn't really grow up with Cutter and that she didn't know him well at all. Joey told Aubrey that he really doesn't know that much about her. Joey asked her about her hopes and dreams. "I'm very easy to please. I just want you," she insisted as he kept asking her questions. Joey said he wanted lots of kids making a mess. Joey wanted to make this amazing team. Aubrey loved Joey's dream. Joey wanted to raise a family in Llanview. "We can live wherever you want," Aubrey said. "Your dad hates me and so does Kelly," Aubrey said.
Kelly ran into Cutter, both wrapped in towels. She said she didn't believe he was Aubrey's brother, "I think you are her lov-ah." Kelly assured him that she had already checked him out. Kelly said that she'd catch them in a lie one of these days. Cutter kissed Kelly and she slapped him. Kelly said she wouldn't be following up with Cutter.
At the barn, Echo warned Clint about Dorian. She shared that Dorian had snuck into her AA meeting. Echo jumped to Rex's defense as Clint said that Rex "would bring this family down." "Your loss is Charlie's gain," Echo said. Echo said she couldn't stop feeling guilty about lying to Charlie. She wondered if Clint ever felt guilty. Clint told Echo to go. Echo asked what happened to that Clint Buchanan "I knew all those years ago?" Clint no longer thought it was an insult to be compared to Asa. Clint wondered who Echo thought she was to "judge me." Echo admitted to having made a boat load of mistakes and said she was using her drinking to get closer to Charlie. "I'm falling for another married man again," she said adding that she had hated herself for many years. Echo wondered what turned him so bitter. Clint didn't want to talk about it. Clint wasn't worried about Dorian adding that Echo would keep Dorian from finding out the truth about Rex.
At LaBoulaie, Dorian wanted to find out how to prove that Clint was Rex's father. "But how do I prove it?" she wondered.
Ford told Langston about Nate's hearing. Nate had been covering for Inez. Langston wondered if Ford thought Inez could have murdered Eddie. Ford didn't know what to think. Langston and Ford entered Dorian's living room. Dorian remembered seeing Aubrey and Ford all over each other. Ford clarified that — they hadn't been all over each other — and said that he and Aubrey had had some history. Dorian wanted to know more. Ford explained that Aubrey made him feel they were destined to be together. Ford added that things didn't go very far. Ford didn't know why Aubrey had turned from Ford to Joey. Ford said when he had told Aubrey he didn't have any money. "She dropped me so fast," he said. Ford declared that he hadn't seen Aubrey since Venice. "There is nothing there," Ford added. Langston believed him and wanted Dorian to "leave this alone."
Inez told Bo and Nora that she and Bo never had sex. Inez apologized for what she did. She admitted to drugging Bo. Bo told how Rex found out about the prescription. Nora grew angry. "We never slept together. Bo loves you too much for that," Inez said. Nora and Bo hugged each other and then Nora told Bo to arrest Inez. Inez denied knowing anything about her kidnapping. Inez said she had no choice. Nora wondered who would have forced Inez to sleep with Bo. Nora was convinced that Eddie was working with someone — Inez. Bo agreed. "Clint is the one who wanted me to sleep with you Bo," Inez blurted out. Bo and Nora were stunned. Inez rattled off all of the favors that Clint had done for her. "Clint wanted to wreck your marriage, Inez told the stunned couple. Inez said that Clint had threatened her sons as well. Inez talked about the deals that Clint made with her. Inez added that Clint was behind Nora's kidnapping. Bo still couldn't believe that Clint would do all these bad things. "This was all Clint's doing. Please tell me that you believe me?" she begged. Bo then arrested Inez. Inez begged him not to do that. Bo explained he was arresting her for drugging him.
Bo left. "There is something I need to do," Bo said. Nora begged him not to do anything he'd regret. Echo told Charlie he didn't have to wear Asa's hat. He could go back to being "the man I used to know." Echo left. Kelly came home to Dorian's. Dorian told Kelly that Ford knew some interesting stuff about Aubrey "whatshername." Kelly was eager to hear details. She showed Ford the photo of Cutter and Aubrey.
Aubrey worried that Clint would make things bad for them. Joey said he wanted to be photographer and he would do anything to make her happy. Cutter overheard Aubrey tell Joey that he was so different "than anyone I've ever known." Cutter interrupted them. Cutter pointed out that he's never seen her so into someone. Cutter mentioned that he met someone at the gym.
Nora asked Inez if it ever crossed her mind to come to Bo and Nora about Clint's plan. Nora hoped that Clint and Bo could settle this. Bo showed up at the barn and pointed his gun at Clint.
There was no new episode today. Tune in tomorrow!
Natalie squirmed when the nurse said her son and Jessica's looked like brothers, not cousins.
Right after Vimal wrote his letter of resignation, his wife Rama surprised him in Clint's office; she had just come from London. Vimal explained he was quitting because his boss "is not a nice guy," then rattled off all the DNA tests he'd been asked to change. Rama was stunned. Vimal added that he forgot which daughter needed the DNA test changed, so he flipped a coin to decide which to switch. Vimal was afraid of Clint, but Rama didn't think Clint could do them any harm.
Ford recognized a photo of Cutter. Kelly told him she is still not convinced that Cutter and Aubrey are related. Ford wondered why Kelly wouldn't give him a second chance. "Maybe we don't have to be enemies," Ford suggested. As he left for the hospital and check out some old injuries, Kelly told him he had to bring the people who beat him up to justice.
Kelly called Aubrey to apologize, admitting she had some residual feelings for Joey. Claiming she felt bad because they'd hit if off so well on the plane, Kelly said, "I'd like to try to normalize things for Joey's sake."
Joey walked into an argument between Cutter and Aubrey, saying he wanted to introduce Cutter to his two sisters. Brody thought Cutter looked familiar when they shook hands.
Bo pointed a gun at Clint and demanded to know if Clint had forced Inez to try to ruin his marriage. Clint admitted was still angry at the humiliation Bo caused him. "What did you want me to do? Let it go?" Clint snapped. "Did Nora deserve to almost get raped?" Bo asked Clint, catching him off guard. Bo accused Clint of being behind the Eddie kidnapping, but Clint claimed he'd never even met Eddie Ford. Bo hit him. "I'm just doing what Pa would have done," Clint sneered. "Go ahead Bo, pull the trigger," Clint taunted, as Nora and John arrived on the scene. Nora reminded Bo that Clint failed at breaking them up, and declared her love. "Put the gun down and we'll beat them together," she implored. Bo pulled back his gun, but said he was going to arrest Clint for what he and Eddie did to Nora. Nora took Bo home, but not before Bo touched Asa's hat. Bo recalled fighting over who got to wear Pa's hat. "I don't know who this belongs to now. But it sure as hell isn't you and it never will be," Bo said, walking out of the barn with Nora.
Cristian and Blair walked into their Parisian hotel's restaurant, mystery
painting in hand. Blair was having no luck tracking down its origins, and
Cris ordered them some champagne to cheer her up. As Blair again studied the
painting, a man walked up with information. He'd had the painting in his
gallery for a few weeks, until he sold it to Eli. Blair asked if he knew
who'd painted it. The gallery owner didn't want to spill, but eventually
ponied up the guy's address. After he left, Layla showed up...and she was
surprised to see Cristian with Blair. Blair explained her portrait mystery
and went off to investigate the artist. Alone, Cris admitted to Layla that
he'd woken up in bed with Blair on New Year's after a game of strip poker.
As for Layla? She admitted she did sleep with Steffen. Ouch!
Elsewhere in Gay Paree, Blair found the artist: daytime veteran Ted
King! "It's you!" he gasped, when he saw her.
Robe-clad, on the couch, Nora and Bo promised to not let anyone else pull
them apart. Matthew walked in on them cuddling and demanded to know what
they were doing. Bo and Nora didn't want to explain the details of their
reunion. When Matt wanted to drop by BE, they sternly told him he wasn't
going back to work there and that he was to steer clear of his uncle Clint.
Alone, they discussed the whole situation, not wanting to destroy Matthew's
illusions until they had complete proof of Clint's villainy. As Clint
studied a Sun headline about Nate and Inez, a jailed Nate and Inez tried to
figure out who really killed Eddie. Clint flashed back to telling Bo he has
"nothing" on him. Then, Viki came by to ask if Clint would co-host their
grandsons' christening with her. Clint said he was preparing trust funds for
them, in case something should happen to him. Viki was alarmed! Clint
quickly changed the subject. Later, Matthew slammed in to confront his
uncle. He wondered if Clint's lies were just a way to keep Matt quiet about
Rex being Clint's son. Clint just manipulated the boy all over again.
Meanwhile, Bo and Nora tried to figure out if Clint could've killed Eddie.
Then, Nora told Viki that she and Bo reunited. They also gushed over baby
photos. When Viki mentioned Clint, Nora excused away her instant tension. As
for Bo, he visited Inez. She suspected Clint had set her up, but she had no
proof. Matthew came home, having skipped school, and told Nora he'd quit his
job. Meanwhile, Inez vanished from the jail...and showed up in Clint's
At the Buenas Dias, Téa, Blair, Todd and Dani were discussing the Nate/Inez
situation. Naturally, James and Michelle walked in. Awkward! Of course,
Michelle didn't know it was awkward, and waved at Starr cheerily. James then
walked over to thank Téa for all of her help with Nate. Afterwards Todd
asked Starr what was up, but Starr wouldn't 'fess up. Then, Téa got a call
about the judge wanting to talk to Nate. She updated a nervous James before
she and Dani left. James hoped his mom could go free, too. Nearby, Todd
gleefully told Starr about Marty flipping out and ending up in St. Ann's.
"God, poor Marty!" moaned Starr. Todd was all smug and superior about being
right about Marty. Throughout all of this, Starr and James couldn't stop
staring at each other. In court, the judge told Nate and Téa that his case
was dismissed. He was free to go! Inez's fate weighed on Nate, though. Back
at the diner, Todd urged Starr to move on with her life, citing that Cole
was as crazy as his mother. Starr refused to abandon the father of her child
and told Todd to leave her alone. When she stalked off, James demanded to
know what Todd had done to her. Todd warned James he was driving Starr right
out of his life. Starr walked up on the confab. Todd basically laid out that
the kids wanted each other.
