That's Our Guy!
Which guy? Our guy! Whose guy? Ours! I don't mean to embarrass myself here, folks, but you have got to be a pretty cool customer if you're not at least a little curious and excited by Roger Howarth's return to One Life to Live! I, for one, am giddy like a schoolgirl because I have not seen one single spoiler and have not one single clue how this is all going to play out. Sure, I wish I hadn't known at all that he was returning, but aside from that one obviously major factor, so far is this is like old-school soap-viewing when you don't already know most of what's happening because of spoilers and internet rumors. Remember the element of surprise? I don't know if (a) I've just been lucky enough to avoid information or if (b) the folks in charge at OLTL have learned something and are miraculously keeping this thing quiet or if (c) the spoilers simply aren't out there because they're going to drag out this tease in tiny bits and pieces for ages because they haven't even written the actual reveal yet. (Are we all pretty sure it's option C?) (And wait! Dear readers, if it's option A, please keep me in the dark, I beg of you!)
Because seriously, y'all.
I mean, right?
I am just so excited! Straitjackets! Mysterious injections! Ambiguous interrogations! Undisclosed locations!
And they're really laying it on thick with Tomas calling Todd "Todd," as if it's in quotes (if Trevor St. John's Todd gets revealed as a fraud, I will give one hundred crispy fresh dollars to the first character to throw some air quotes in his face, by the way) and with Todd referring to himself in the third person, and the two of them speaking vaguely to each other about secrets and questions.
Todd and Tomas agreeing to keep some sort of mutual secret so that Todd can keep his family; a secret that Tomas would "go down for" as well if it came out. Tea dropping anvils like "Sometimes I feel like I have no idea who he really is." I am having a lot of fun, but I do have one request: as a seasoned soap viewer, I know full well that traditionally they would drag this out by showing Roger Howarth's character for weeks on end in just short, tiny scenes in which he's always isolated from anyone else in the cast until weeks or even months from now. Please please, pretty please, don't do that?!
As much as I love Matthew and don't really have a problem, necessarily, with the fact that he and Destiny just had sex, I can't quite say I'm completely comfortable watching them discuss it. Perhaps it's just because they just look like children to me. And I'm perfectly aware that kids that age are having sex but... oh dear lord I'm turning into my mother right before your very eyes, aren't I? I just don't want to hear children talking about the sex! I can't be the only one, can I?
As for our resident first-class passenger on the Crazy Train, Marty's madness has gone downhill a bit as today's plan was totally derivative of Hannah's big plan to kill Starr and make Cole fall in love with her because she "saved" Hope, just as Marty now thinks she killed Natalie and that John will fall in love with her because she "saved" Liam.
I want to squeeze Liam's little toes!
And poor Destiny, constantly in the wrong place at the wrong time and getting involved in everyone else's drama and being, you know, held at gunpoint.
Speaking of her, Destiny out (of sexual innocence)!
