Looks like another ghostly return for "One Life to Live." John Wesley Shipp, who played the abusive father of the Ford brothers and ex-husband of their mom Inez Salinger (Jessica Leccia) appears to be headed back to Llanview for the show's final days on the air. But just what brings the murdered deadbeat dad back to the canvas?

The plot mirrors "OLTL's" own predicament, having been dumped by ABC earlier this year.
