One Life To Live Recaps
OLTL Week of May 31, 2010
Happy Memorial Day! Today's episode was a repeat.
While Markko was being arrested at the diner, Langston stepped in and insisted to Brody that there's no way Markko is capable of brutally harming someone. Brody presented Téa with a report on Markko's bloody sneaker prints. Téa laughed at the report, but Brody said they have an eyewitness who saw Markko toss his sneakers in the dumpster the night of Ford's attack. After Markko was dragged away in cuffs, Langston called Starr and left a message saying she really needs her friend right now. Meanwhile, Starr visited Cole in jail and Cole tried to convince her that she's wrong about her dad.
Todd continued to torment a tied-up Hannah in his office and handed her a photo of Ford, bloodied and battered. Hannah claimed not to know Ford. After using subtle threats in an attempt to make her retract her statement, Todd decided to let her go, but requested that his goons follow her. Hannah's next stop was the hospital, where she inquired about Ford's condition.
Natalie went to visit John at his office and they were immediately kissing and making googly eyes at each other. She expressed her anxiety about not hearing from him since his airport confession, but John assured her that he wasn't ignoring her and that things have been busy at the station. Brody arrived to announced that Markko's just been brought in and has a lawyer. While John was speaking with Markko and Téa, Natalie asked Brody what they're going to do about their secret. John returned before they could come to an agreement. Once Brody was gone, she and John agreed to talk about their relationship when John was a little less busy at work. He surprised her, however, by asking her to attend Bo and Nora's wedding with him. She let him get back to work, but later dropped in with a Rodi's burger for him.
Nora stopped by Viki's to ask her for a big favor. She explained that Rachel has the flu and is unable to make it to Llanview for the wedding, so she asked Viki to her matron of honor. "This time's different," Nora smiled of her impending nups to Bo. "This time's the last time." Clint walked in just as the ladies were remembering their joint wedding this time last year. Bo ran into Jessica at the hospital and told her how happy he is that she's recovered her memory. Jessica wasn't sure if she remembers everything, though. Just as she was admitting this to Bo, a nurse informed the police commissioner that things aren't looking good for Ford. Bo wondered if Jessica was an acquaintance of Ford, but Jess didn't have to say anything because Bo received a call that an arrest had been made. Jessica was clearly relieved. Meanwhile, the subject of Jessica came up during Nora's visit with Viki, and Viki admitted that she can tell there's something that's bothering Jessica.
Markko was placed in a cell across from Cole and caught him up on all the Ford drama. Téa advised Markko not to say anything further about his case. Langston met up with Starr at the Buenos Dias and informed her that Markko was arrested. Even though she had greatly disappointed Starr, Langston asked Starr to stand by her. They agreed that they both needed their friendship at this difficult time.
At Viki's, Nora told Clint that she thought they'd reached some peace since Bo's accident and it would mean the world to Bo if he'd come to their wedding. Bo walked in with Jessica and reiterated Nora's assertion. Clint wasn't so sure he was up to the task. Jessica was thrilled to hear that Brody wouldn't have to work the next day and could escort her to the wedding. Bo returned home with Nora and they were simply giddy about the idea of marrying again. The next morning, Bo happily whispered in Nora's ear, "It's time to get married."
Bo woke up excited for his and Nora's wedding and snuggled with his bride-to-be. Nora remarked that the only way things could be more perfect would be if Rachel could make it to their wedding. Suddenly, they both heard thunder and the sky darkened. They checked the weather on the computer and learned the ETA on the storm is the exact time of their ceremony. Regardless, they went ahead with their preparations for the day. Meanwhile, Matthew was having an awkward conversation with Danielle and they agreed to catch up at Nora and Bo's wedding. Destiny dropped by and reassured her friend, who was still nervous that Danielle wanted nothing to do with him since he blabbed that he loves her. When Bo entered the living room, Destiny asked if she could bring a date to the wedding. Matthew was shocked to hear that Darren managed to grow on Destiny. Bo remarked what a perfect day it would be, just as a cry was heard from the other room. The distressed bride came out with a towel on her face and told them she mistakenly used an exfoliating toner instead of contact lens solution. Matthew tried to cheer her up with a walnut cream cheese-slathered bagel, but she promptly chipped her tooth on a walnut shell.
Nate ran into Danielle at the Buenos Dias and asked if she thinks Markko attacked Ford. Danielle wasn't sure, saying sometimes people do crazy things. Especially when they're in love, added Nate. Dani confessed that Matthew professed his love for her after the prom. Nate asked if she feels the same way, but then claimed he didn't want to know the answer.
Viki and Jessica picked up a copy of The Sun on their way into Foxy Roxy's, while Natalie stayed outside to take a call from Brody. He suggested they keep mum about their one-night stand and she agreed. Jessica and Viki discussed Ford's beating and Viki said she didn't think Markko was capable of doing something like that. When Natalie returned, she weighed in on the conversation and said she heard Ford's a real dog. She asked Jess if Ford had ever hit on her, just as Brody was telling John that Ford had tried to put the moves on Jessica when she was suffering from amnesia.
Rex and Gigi returned home from New Mexico to find Shane and Roxy camped out in the living room. Shane wanted to hear about their trip, while Roxy just wanted to know whether Rex and Gigi were getting their romance back on track. They basically told Roxy to mind her own business and informed Shane that they'd learned a bit about Rex's parents through the letters they found. Shane was psyched to hear that his biological grandmother was part-Hopi Indian because he'd just learned about that in history class. Later, Rex thanked Gigi for going through this whole process with him and it seemed they were about to kiss.
Roxy arrived at the salon with a Bedazzled cocktail shaker and wanted to make cocktails for the bride. Since Nora wasn't there yet, Viki and Roxy started gabbing about Natalie's reunion with John and agreed that there's a chunk of time she's been very tight-lipped about. Natalie insisted that they know everything there is to know, and both she and Jessica seemed happy to not discuss that night further. Meanwhile, Nora was at home dealing with her chipped tooth. Bo received a call from the church asking him to meet with the singer right away. When Nora smiled, Matthew and Destiny couldn't believe how bad Nora's tooth looked. Before leaving for the church, Bo assured Nora that everything would be perfect. Right after Destiny asked Nora about her dancing skills, Nora tripped over her own dress and ended up flat on the floor. When she later arrived at Foxy Foxy's, she was walking on crutches, wearing glasses and an eye patch, and speaking with a lisp because of her tooth.
Matthew and Bo arrived at St. James to find a terrible smell pervading the church. Even worse, the flowers that had been arranged for the wedding were trashed. The wedding singer explained that animal control had been chasing after the skunk all morning. "The skunk's frightened," she defended when they asked how a skunk could make such a huge mess. Matthew returned with a can of deodorizing spray, but as he started vigorously spraying, the singer developed a cough and became hoarse. At Foxy Roxy's, Nora sat down to a beauty treatment and laughed as she asked, "What else could go wrong?" Destiny left Foxy Roxy's to get a bite at the Buenos Dias, where she saw Nate kissing Dani through the window. Bo sent home the ailing singer and assured his son that everything would work out. Brody, John and Rex arrived to the church, and Bo gave them marching orders to make this wedding happen. But as the boys headed out to handle their assignments, Bo got sprayed by the skunk, while Roxy unveiled a green-haired Nora to a room full of horrified faces.
A frantic Kelly sought Blair's help finding something to wear to Bo and Nora's wedding, which made Blair realize that she hadn't been invited. Kelly reminded Blair that she wasn't exactly the best guest at Nora's last wedding. Blair couldn't believe that Kelly had been invited to a Buchanan wedding even though she'd snubbed Kevin. John arrived amidst the cousins' bickering and announced that he's there to see Blair on behalf of Nora. He explained that Bo is about to remarry Nora and there's a problem with the singer. Blair griped once again that she wasn't invited, and Kelly pointed out that's because Blair got hammered at Nora's wedding to Clint. Blair blamed last year's drunken outburst on John dumping her for Marty. John mentioned that he broke up with Marty, which pleased Blair. Kelly claimed to have a better singing voice than Blair and volunteered to be Nora's wedding singer, but Blair snatched the music away from her and said there's no way she'll let Kelly ruin the family name. John winked at Kelly. Blair said she'd do it but only if Nora apologizes. Since Nora was preoccupied, John offered an apology instead, which Blair accepted.
Destiny spied Nate kissing Dani through the Buenos Dias window and cursed herself for being the one who always catches people cheating. Suddenly, Matthew arrived and asked what she was so upset about. Destiny wouldn't let Matthew into the café and managed to send him on his way. Just as Nate was telling Danielle he's not sorry for kissing her, Destiny interrupted them and scolded Dani for being unfaithful to Matthew. She insisted that Dani tell Matthew the truth before she does. Nate told Destiny to mind her own business, but Dani agreed that Destiny's right.
Rex couldn't believe the smell that was emanating from Bo's body after the skunk sprayed him in the church. He suggested that Bo postpone the wedding, but Bo was determined not to let anything stand in the way of him marrying Nora. Suddenly, Bo realized that his tux was missing, so Rex went to look for it. After the animal control guys nabbed the skunk, Rex unveiled Bo's destroyed tux. Rex had an idea about how to remove the skunk smell from Bo and was soon dunking Bo in a tub full of tomato sauce.
Gigi reluctantly handed Nora a mirror after Roxy ruined her hair and Nora let out a bloodcurdling screech. Everyone brainstormed ways to fix the green hair when Nora noticed that a curling iron had just ignited her highly flammable gown. Nora cowered behind Viki as Gigi and Natalie put the fire out too late to save her scorched dress. Nora was ready to call off the wedding, but Viki gave Nora a pep talk and handed out assignments to everyone to fix Nora's problems. Gigi and Viki headed to the garret to go through Nora's closet because the power was out at Logan's Department Store. Gigi thought she hit the motherlode when she found a wedding-ish gown, but it turned out to be the one Nora wore when she wed Clint. Just when things were looking bleak in the wardrobe department, Gigi found "the dress." Meanwhile, Natalie smacked (literally) some sense into a self-doubting Roxy and told her to mix up the best bowl of red hair dye she can. A jazzy CSI-style montage ensued as they mixed up the dye and put Nora's hair through another cycle under the dryer.
From his tomato tub, Bo called Nora to check in and make sure everything was going well. Bo sensed some anxiety on her end and asked if there's any reason to postpone, but they both agreed they want to do this today. Bo resumed his bathing and Rex fixed him a Bloody Mary while they chatted about his New Mexico trip. Meanwhile, Gigi admitted to Viki that there may have been a special moment or two in New Mexico with Rex. Viki urged Gigi to pursue a romance with Rex pronto, just as Bo was advising Rex to do the same thing. Matthew returned with the deodorizing spray and went to work on the chapel. Danielle arrived and said she needs to talk to Matthew right away. David, meanwhile, found "Pa" Bo in his tomato tub. Bo didn't look particularly pleased to see his flighty son.
Someone was watching Kelly from the La Boulaie terrace. When Shaun saw something moving outside, he grabbed his gun and went outside only to find Reed soaking wet from the rain. Shaun was a little suspicious, but let him enter at Kelly's request. Blair answered the front door to find a drenched Elijah on the other side. She explained that she got a last-minute invite to Bo and Nora's wedding and needs him to be her date. Blair was surprised when he said he'd had his invite for weeks and wondered why he hadn't asked her, but he assumed she didn't want to attend Nora's wedding. Meanwhile, Reed asked Kelly for another date, so she invited him to attend the wedding with her. Shaun jumped right in, announcing that he loves weddings! Reed assured Shaun that he'd take good care of Kelly, but Shaun held up his own wedding invite, claiming he was already planning to attend. Kelly introduced Reed to Eli and Blair, who made a joke about how his accent reminded her of an old lover, Ian, she and Kelly fought over.
As Rex was dousing Bo in tomato juice, David walked into the rectory, to Bo's surprise. Danielle arrived to St. James early to talk to Matthew about their relationship. They were briefly interrupted by John, then Brody, who'd gotten a great deal on a new floral display. Luckily, the abundance of flowers got rid of the skunk stench. Brody found Bo in the rectory and showed him the only tux he could find, which was pretty hideous. When Danielle and Matthew were finally alone, she tried to talk to him again but was dismayed when he tucked a flower behind her ear and told her how beautiful she looks.
The timer went off on Nora's dryer and to everyone's great relief, Nora's regular shade of red was back. Gigi and Viki returned from the garret and presented Nora with her wedding gown: the one she wore to her first wedding to Bo! Nora had assumed the dress was lost, so she was thrilled. Also inside the garment bag was Bo's tux, which greatly touched Nora. Gigi phoned Rex to ask if Bo would like to wear his original tux, and Rex told her to get over there ASAP. Nora started to have second thoughts again, but Viki assured her they'd get everything fixed. Nora was feeling a little better until she saw her extremely young-looking "dentist." As it turned out, he was a first-year dental student and she was his first patient. Murray didn't think he could handle this one, but Natalie gave him the same pep talk he gave Roxy. "You will do this!" she commanded, slapping him across the face. "Now get cracking." Sure enough, Murray was able to successfully bond the tooth. Natalie made a speech and a toast to their success, just as John was doing the same for Bo at the rectory.
Blair arrived to the church to find Danielle sitting alone. Blair noticed how sad she looked and Dani said she's just waiting for Matthew. More guests arrived, and Kelly was surprised to hear that Reed and David already know each other. As Bo put on this tux, he thought back to dancing with Nora at their first wedding and how happy they were. Meanwhile, Nora stepped outside Foxy Roxy's to see that the rain had stopped and did a little twirl of joy. Bo finally emerged from the rectory and asked where Andrew is. David explained that the airport shut down because of the storm, so Andrew's flight was likely rerouted. Bo didn't know what they were going to do, but David volunteered to lend a hand.
