( — Tuc Watkins finds himself back in Llanview once more, and this time he plans to hang around for awhile.

The last time viewers saw David Vickers Buchanan he was blackmailing Kim to walk on his uncle Clint. Now comes word that he will back in town again in the near future, as Watkins has signed a new contract with the ABC sudser.

Watkins has been portraying the popular conman on and off since 1994. After leaving the show in 1997, he has returned for several short stints on a yearly basis since 2001, including being on contract again from 2003-06. Before coming to Llanview he played Dr. Pierce Dorman on “General Hospital” from 1996-97. And since 2007 he has portrayed Bob Hunter, one half of Wisteria Lane’s only gay couple, on “Desperate Housewives.”

Although a spokesperson confirmed the news to Soap Opera Digest, there is no word on the length of Watkins’ new contract or when his first airdate will be. However, on Monday, May 3rd, Kelly’s old flame Reed Wagner eases Dorian’s suspicions about him when he mentions that he knew David while he was staying in London.

( — “One Life to Live” uses the sound of music to usher in the month of May.

Is Viki and Clint’s prodigal son Kevin (Dan Gauthier) on his way back to the canvas? It appears so (albeit briefly) since Kevin and his little sis Natalie sympathize with one another over the sorry state of their love lives on Friday, May 7th.

Tramaine Montell Ford, who has recently been tweeting about his days taping on the “OLTL” set, has announced on his website that fans can see him on air during the musical on May 14th, 17th, and 18th.

Meredith Collins recently shot “back to back” episodes of “One Life.”

Cole’s arraignment begins on Wednesday, May 5th, when the teen goes before a rather strict Judge.

More new faces are heading for Llanview as the calendar changes from April to May, however it is unclear exactly who will playing the new minor characters at this time. Look for Penny and Otto to make debuts when Rex and Gigi travel to Sante Fe, New Mexico after getting a lead on the locket Nurse Wojohowitz gave him that belonged to his birth parents on Friday, May 7th. You can read a summary of the audition scripts for both roles here.

Also on May 7th, Danielle accepts Matthew’s prom invite after seeing Nate asking Whitney (Erin Moriarty – but no relation to the “48 Hours” correspondent of the same name) to go the dance. We first saw Whitney last week when she was selling prom tickets to Cristian Vega.

A day earlier, Darren returns and manages to convince Destiny to escort him to the prom. Darren was last seen on March 23rd, when he was Cristian’s one man stage crew for the upcoming musical.

You can read about “One Life” fan Megan Gerth‘s in-depth account (including pictures with the show’s cast) concerning her visit to the studios earlier this month at her blog. Among the things discussed in her blog is a blurb about a guy named Matt, who will playing a Rodi’s Bartender in an upcoming episode.

Shenell Edmonds’ (Destiny) fan club manager has released a statement mentioning the teen star’s upcoming 16th birthday, and the expanding of her character on “One Life to Live.”

And, as for the progress of the impending musical “Starr X-d Lovers,” “OLTL” Music Director Paul Glass tweeted Monday that “we’re more than halfway done…just one more week of taping musical segments when we get back. Thanks!” He also reports that the “Studio is dark this week..much needed rest from a crazy couple musical weeks!!”

( — Pine Valley bids adieu to three major forces this week.

“All My Children” says goodbye to Palmer Cortlandt on today’s episode. The episode will feature flashbacks of some of Palmer’s most memorable moments along with unaired footage of James Mitchell portraying Palmer (the footage was taped at the actors California home for the soaps 40th Anniversary episode earlier this year). Gillian Spencer, who played Palmer’s most memorable ex-wife Daisy, Taylor Miller, who played Palmer’s daughter Nina, and Alicia Minshew, who plays one of the Kane women the tycoon had a special affinity for, will make guest appearances on the tribute episode. Mitchell passed away on January 22 at the age of 89.

David Canary puts in his last appearance as Stuart Chandler on Wednesday, April 21, when Adam shares heartwarming scenes with his deceased brother’s spirit.

On Friday, April 23, Canary wraps up nearly three decades of playing the undeniable force that is Adam Chandler. Look for the heart-sick character to reunite with the love of his life, Brooke English, and take off for a stress-free happily ever after. Of course, this means that the Emmy darling is taking Julia Barr, the actress who has portrayed Brooke from 1976 to 2006 and since February, off-screen with him. Barr returned to the soap specifically for this story. In another nice nod to “AMC” history, look for Susan Lucci’s Erica to play a big roll in Brooke and Adam’s exit episodes. Although the retiring, east-coast based Canary has said that he’s open to returning for stints, it appears more likely that we’ll see Barr on-screen as Adam’s surrogate from time to time in the future.

Make sure not to miss a moment of “AMC” this week!
