One Life To Live Recaps
OLTL Week of June 14, 2010
After nabbing Starr's car with her and Hope in it, James sped away from the hospital and pulled off onto a country road. Starr threatened to call the cops, then realized that she'd left her cell phone on top of the car before they drove away. She told James to get out and leave her alone, but after he did, her engine failed to start and she had to track him down.
David found Little Bro (a.k.a. Matthew) down in the dumps and asked what was troubling him. Matt just wanted to watch action movies on the sofa and eat junk food, but David got him to reveal that Danielle broke up with him. David tried to give Matt a pep talk and thought about what Bo would do in this situation, seeing as Bo is on his honeymoon. "Fishing!" he suggested, to which Matthew made a face. David came up with another idea and told Matthew to get himself ready for a night on the town. While Matt was in the shower, he called up a woman, identifying himself as "Dave, your fave." When Matthew later reemerged, David had two lovely ladies waiting.
Danielle found Nate sunbathing by the quarry and admitted that she'd hoped to find him there. She informed him that she dumped Matthew the night before and feels terrible about it. Matthew was an amazing guy and all she did was stomp on his heart, she lamented, suggesting that makes her just like her father. Meanwhile, Blair confronted Todd after she found him snooping around Dr. Evans's office. He demanded that Blair tell him why Téa's been seeing Dr. Evans and threatened to "get those records the hard way" if she didn't spill. Blair clutched the file behind her back and refused to hand it over. "Is she sick? How sick is she?" Todd pressed. Finally, Blair admitted that Téa is dying of a brain tumor. Todd wanted to spring to action to find the best treatment and doctors possible, but Blair urged him to accept that Téa is dying and focus on patching things up with Dani.
When Jessica heard that Markko was no longer a suspect in Ford's beating, she assumed that she or one of her alters did it and confessed her fear to Kelly. Jessica told Kelly about her terrible prom night, and how Ford said all the right things to get her into bed. She explained that she thought Ford was Mitch when he was on top of her, and that's when she got her memory back and flipped out. Kelly pointed out that if Jessica doesn't remember doing it, then it's possible she didn't attack Ford.
Meanwhile, John questioned a conscious Ford about the night of his attack, but he didn't remember who beat him. John pulled a nurse aside and asked if anyone had visited Ford. She recalled that his brother was there, but left as soon as "another man" came around. John went back into Ford's room and asked for the name of his brother. After, he showed up at Kelly's office just as she and Jessica were wrapping up their conversation. Jessica looked terrified.
After a little cliff diving, Danielle and Nate searched around for a necklace she lost and came upon a metal briefcase. They hesitated to open it, but ultimately did and found a lot of cash inside. Meanwhile, James promised to get help for a stranded Starr and walked off into the woods. When he got to the spot where the briefcase was, he panicked and cried, "Noooo!" upon realizing it was gone.
Gigi sought wardrobe advice from Natalie for her "first date" with Rex, who promptly arrived with flowers. While Gigi was putting the blooms in water, Rex explained to Natalie that he and Gigi have decided to try again and take things slow.
Matthew was speechless upon seeing the glamorous women David brought for their night on the town. Matt pulled "Dave" aside and asked what he's got planned. David informed his little bro that they're going to paint the town red and asked which hot-blooded Buchanan he'd rather be: Clint or Asa? Matt definitely wanted to be Asa.
John interrupted a conversation between Kelly and Jessica at The Sun to ask Kelly to discuss her mother's case. No new developments, she reported, asking if there's anything new on Ford's attack. John announced that Ford is awake but doesn't remember the details of the attack. Later, Kelly accompanied Jessica home and had to stop her from confessing to to Natalie. After, Jessica asked Kelly how she can be so sure that Tess or Bess didn't come out to attack Ford. Kelly suggested she see her psychiatrist.
Blair phoned Téa to warn her that Todd is onto her. Just then, Todd knocked on her door. She asked him to leave, but he made it clear there's no way he'll stand by and let her die alone. Todd was hurt to hear that Blair knew before he did about her illness. Téa explained that she didn't mean for Blair or anyone to find out. Todd urged her to come clean with Dani. Téa sobbed as she admitted to wanting to be a real family with Todd and Dani but just doesn't know how to do it. He promised to help find her a second opinion or some miracle doctor who could cure her, then told her he loves her.
Blair met up with Elijah at Capricorn and told him what's going on with Téa and Todd. When Blair saw David and Matthew with their "dates," she accused David of trying to serve a teenager alcohol. David insisted that he asked for sparkling cider. She ordered him to behave or get out, so David promised to keep things civilized. At a nearby table, Rex surprised Gigi with a whiskey sour, the first cocktail she ever drank. Rex ran into David and Wendy at the bar and told the prostitute to make herself scarce. David called Rex a "lousy fake Buchanan" for sending away their entertainment. When Rex returned to Gigi, he observed that Fawn had split as well. Gigi confessed that she warned her in the ladies' bathroom that Matthew is the police commissioner's son. Back at the garret, David admitted that their dates were ladies of the night. Matthew was disappointed that their night was over ... until the ladies emerged from the bedroom.
At the Buenos Dias, Nate explained to Danielle that his mom is in a tight spot and could really use the money they found. After hearing him out, she promised not to tell anyone what he does with the money. At another table, John and Natalie discussed Ford's case and John mentioned that Jessica seemed awfully interested in Ford's well-being. Natalie assumed that Jessica was just working on a story for The Sun.
Dani returned home to find Todd and Téa snuggled up on the couch and sensed that something was troubling them. "Who died?" she asked. They claimed that they were just discussing Ford's case for a story and that Todd needed a quote from Markko's lawyer. Dani seemed to buy it and said good-night to her mom, basically ignoring her dad. After, Todd promised to be there for Téa in whatever way she needs.
After finding her parents cuddling on the couch, Danielle confronted Téa about what it will take to really get rid of Todd. To Dani's dismay, Todd arrived with breakfast for everyone. Todd wanted to accompany Téa to her treatment and was disappointed to hear that she'd cancelled the appointment. Téa explained that there's no point in continuing with treatment because she's going to die either way. They agreed to table the discussion for today and focus on Starr's graduation.
At La Boulaie, Kelly, Blair and Dorian showered Starr with praise. Dorian wondered where their little valedictorian was, while Langston anxiously worked on her speech at the apartment. When she heard a knock on the door, she hoped it was Markko, but it was a tough-looking guy in search of Starr. The man claimed he found Starr's bag and just wanted to return it. When the guy took awhile to make himself scarce, Langston became really uncomfortable. Once he was gone, she left for Dorian's, but the guy broke in. At La Boulaie, Langston delivered Starr's bag and said "some big, weird guy" returned it.
At the quarry, James started to panic when he saw that the money was gone, while Nate had the cash in his backpack at school. Darren saw the moolah and asked if Nate robbed a bank. Nate insisted it was just a prop for the school play. Darren informed him that the show has been cancelled and suggested they burn up the fake money, which caused Nate to freak.
At the Buenos Dias, Viki and Charlie congratulated Markko on being cleared in Ford's beating. Viki and Charlie sat down to breakfast and discussed their respective relationships with David and Dorian. Viki insisted to Charlie that she couldn't be more serious about hiring David, who's going to be working for The Banner. "As what? A naked mascot?" quipped Charlie. At the counter, Markko was interrogated by James, who had a lot of questions about Markko's history with Ford. James headed to Starr's apartment next and was disturbed to find that her place had been ransacked. He looked everywhere for Starr and found the invitation to her graduation on the floor.
David woke up on the sofa with his prostitute pal Wendy to a loud knocking on the door. It was Destiny, who couldn't believe her eyes when she saw Matthew with his arm around a slutty blonde. David explained to Destiny that they'd all had too much to drink the night before and the girls just stayed over because they couldn't drive. Destiny immediately pegged the girls for hookers and told Matthew she can't believe he'd, you know, with Fawn. Destiny accompanied her pal to school anyway and tried to boost his spirits when they saw Nate and Dani in the gym together.
The Cramer women arrived to the auditorium for the graduation ceremony and Blair got weepy thinking about the day Starr was born. David found Dorian wiping away a tear and offered a handkerchief with the Buchanan "B" stitched into it. Todd arrived with Téa and pulled Kelly aside to ask her to fill in for him at the office. Blair immediately apologized to Téa for Todd finding out about her condition, but Téa said he was bound to find out sooner or later. Langston and Starr gave each other a hug before the ceremony, unaware that the stranger who found Starr's bag was watching them. Langston kicked off the big event with her valedictorian speech, but paused when she locked eyes with Markko, who was standing at the door. She continued, saying the most important thing that she's learned is to take responsibility for her mistakes. Certain parts of her speech affected various attendees, from Téa to Charlie and Viki, but Markko walked out in the middle of it. Everyone laughed when the principal read off Jessica's name, but Viki was mortified. The principal corrected himself, realizing that Jessica has recovered from her amnesia. Langston ran out and apologized to Markko. "I'm sorry, too," he said, before taking off. After Starr's name was announced and she crossed the stage, someone pulled her behind a curtain.
Starr was grabbed by someone after she received her diploma, while Langston was still in the hall looking for Markko. Todd kept bugging Téa about how she's feeling and was pleased to hear that she'd rescheduled her appointment.
Téa hurried off to her radiation appointment, lying to Danielle that she's working on Todd's case. At the radiation appointment, Todd was disappointed that he couldn't be present for Téa's treatment, but managed to talk his way back in and make her laugh during the session. He stuck to her like glue after the appointment, following her into the bedroom back at her Palace suite. He advised her to take a nup and even tucked her in.
James pulled Starr into a nearby classroom to warn her that the guy chasing him is also after her. That same bald-headed man made his way into the gym and started looking around for someone, presumably Starr. James asked Starr if everything in her bag had been returned to her, but she realized that her cell phone was missing. While Langston was talking to Blair, she noticed that the guy from earlier that day was walking around the gym. James begged Starr not to go to the cops and explained that the guy is after $50,000, which has now gone missing.
Unbeknownst to Starr, Cole was granted a bail hearing that day. He explained to his mom that he told Starr to stop visiting him in jail. Hannah arrived to support Cole and the hearing got underway. Eli assured the judge that Cole is not a flight risk because his daughter and girlfriend live in Llanview. Everyone was pleasantly surprised when the judge released Cole on bail. Cole wanted to go straight to Starr's graduation, while Hannah pulled Marty aside and suggested they straighten a few things out. Hannah accused Marty of spreading lies about her to get Cole to turn on her, which Marty denied. "I'm warning you..." Hannah angrily threatened.
After the graduation ceremony, Nate made sure to hide his bag of cash and asked Danielle to check the news on her phone to see if there's anything about $50,000 missing. David remarked to Dorian that Langston's speech was rather unusual, while Viki pointed out an old photo in the gym of Joey to Charlie, noting that that was right around the time Dorian seduced her teenage son. Dorian accused Viki of hiring David to just to get back at her. Langston and Blair had to stop the women from flinging drinks at each other. As Nate and Dani went to retrieve his backpack, the bald man walked right by them. Blair was shocked to see Cole in the gym. He asked where Starr was, while Starr and James escaped from the scary bald man, who was now toting a gun.
Cole and Langston failed to find Starr after the graduation ceremony, so Cole started to fret, blaming himself for telling Starr not to visit him in jail. Cole dialed Starr's cell and thought he heard her ringtone nearby, while Bull, the creepy bald man, stalked around the halls with Starr's phone in his possession. Meanwhile, Starr took James to Viki's cabin, where she once again threatened to call the cops. He begged her not to and admitted that he stole the money because he didn't want to work for his dad's sketchy chop shop anymore. James proceeded to recap the plot of Gone In Sixty Seconds, more or less, and revealed that his father literally bullied him into stealing cars and even broke his nose. Starr asked about his mom, and James explained that his mom left when he was little. He said he came to town when he heard that Ford had been attacked, and Starr was shocked to hear that Ford is his brother.
After Cole's bail hearing, Marty was spooked by Hannah's threatening behavior at the courthouse. John walked in and sensed the tension, but Hannah flashed him a smile and said they were "celebrating" Cole's release. John asked Hannah to sit down, then proceeded to ask if she was in the stairwell the day Marty fell, because some fibers from a blue sweater like one that she owns were found there. Hannah immediately became defensive and said she has nothing to do with Marty's accident and stormed out. John told Marty he's certain that Hannah is hiding something, and she agreed.
Jessica met up with Kelly at the Buenos Dias and reported that Dr. Levin believes she is still integrated and that her alters did not reemerge to attack Ford. Jessica still thought this meant she could have attacked Ford, so she wanted to confront the victim himself. Kelly didn't think that was a good idea, but Jessica was resolved to speak with Ford. At a nearby table, Nate introduced Danielle to his mom, Inez, who was impressed with the pretty teen. They sat down to lunch, and Nate surprised his mom with the cashier's check, just as Bull walked in. Bull called his boss and said "the kid" claims he lost the money, then phoned James and urged him to pay up. He threatened to hunt James and his "little girlfriend" down, which put the fear of God in James. Meanwhile, Nate lied to his mom that he played the lottery and got this money from a winning ticket. Inez didn't buy it, pointing out that the state doesn't issue lotto tickets to minors, so Nate explained that he used a fake ID to collect the money. Inez accepted the money and promised to set some of it aside for Nate's college education. Once Dani and Nate were gone, Inez opened the newspaper and was intrigued by a story about Ford.
Langston and Cole returned to La Boulaie to feed Hope, and Langston asked if he could forgive her for hurting his best friend. Cole couldn't even think about that situation at the moment, since he was so focused on finding Starr. At the cabin, Starr decided to call Cole and tried to come up with a way to explain why she won't be coming home anytime soon. Cole let a call from Hannah go to voicemail, but when he saw another call coming in, he answered and was relieved to hear Starr's voice on the other end.
Cristian and Layla visited their roommate at the hospital. Ford was thrilled ... until the couple explained they're not there on a friendly visit. Since Markko is his friend and was devastated by Ford's affair with Langston, Cris wanted Ford to move out. Once they were gone, Ford resumed looking at a note that he'd found on his meal tray. Jessica arrived at the hospital in her quest to talk to Ford and ran into Layla and Cristian on her way in. She apologized to them for trying to break them up while she was sick, but it was already water under the bridge. Kelly accompanied her in to visit Ford, while Jessica asked point-blank if she attacked him. He claimed he doesn't remember, but when the ladies were gone, he resumed reading his note, then called John to ask him to come to the hospital. Once John was there, Ford announced that he remembers who attacked him.
