Today's One Life to Live introduced us to Dash Dunning, the soap-within-a-soap Fraternity Row's counterpart to Todd Manning. When Destiny talked about Matthew waking up to learn that she was carrying his child....
Roxy: You know, at least your daddy didn't, you know, try to go after him and kill him or anything like that. Like Dash Dunning did with his daughter's boyfriend after they did the deed? (Sounds familiar. --Ed.)
Nigel: Which was the first clue that Moon's real father (Moon! Teehee. --Ed.) wasn't the real Dash Dunning. Her real father never would have committed such violence. (Okay, as a counterpart to Todd, that's a bit of a stretch! --Ed.)
Speaking of our own "Dash Dunning," today was a Todd/Starr day! Those are the very best days of all. This is the stuff most of us have been dying to see since his return. But I have to ask: why is it that the one front page mock-up that Todd would have enlarged, mounted on posterboard, and displayed on an easel in his office at The Sun would be Jack's "Scar Leaves Starr Holding the Bag" headline that was intended to hurt Todd and Starr?
A strange choice, right?
Starr gave her father a little good advice about pursuing Blair (who he'd like to "foist"), namely to chill out for five seconds so he doesn't blow it. Later in the episode, Todd picked up the phone to call his beloved and we were shown this glorious little treat:
If I'm not mistaken, the little note next to Blair's photo on his desk (aww!) is an underlined note he's written to remind himself, "Call hit man." That is... amazing.
