    The Inside Story: Phyllis's Unholy Alliance
    Daniel, who wants Billy and Victoria to have Lucy as their own, decides to go to court to testify that he's willing to let the Abbott's adopt the baby. The judge soon asks Rafe if he knows of anyone that has any objections to Daniel's decision, and all are stunned when Kevin shows up, wanting to talk. They are greatly at ease when he backs Daniel's decision in letting Lucy stay with Billy and Victoria. They are then informed by the judge that a recess will take place before any decision is made. While the court proceedings have ceased, Phyllis, who has lured Daisy back to Genoa City, works to manipulate the young woman into wanting her parental rights with Lucy. Phyllis's plan works and the two of them, along with Leslie, make their way to the courthouse. Back at the courthouse, the judge has made a decision: Billy and Victoria can adopt Lucy. Everyone in attendance of the proceedings are happy for the two of them, but that happiness is destroyed courtesy of Phyllis, who has arrived with Daisy in tow. The judge wants an explanation and Phyllis gives one: she says Daisy wants her rights as a mother back and has agreed that Phyllis should be able to have visitations to Lucy. Daniel and Lauren are outraged by Phyllis's callous actions. Daniel warns Daisy that his mother is only using her to get Lucy and once Lucy is in her hands, she's history. Lauren confronts Phyllis about her betraying her, then goes after Daisy, but is pulled away by Michael before she can get her hands on the troublemaker. Daisy attempts to right many wrongs but her attempts and explanations fall on deaf ears. Meanwhile, the judge informs all that the ruling that was decided will still remain in affect, however, there will be another court case in the near future.

                'OLTL' Casting Spree Continues: Troubled Llanview Teen Gets New Dad

                ( — David Aaron Baker returns to “One Life to Live” in a new recurring role, and will share a connection to one of Llanview’s less than honorable teen citizens.

                Soap Opera Digest is reporting that that the actor has been cast as Brad’s (Frank Dolce) father. Remember that Brad has been Jack’s (Andrew Trischitta) sidekick the past few months, while the Manning heir has been tormenting Shane Morasco (Austin Williams).

                Long-time fans may recall that this isn’t Baker’s first stint in Llanview. He originated the role of the blackmailing lab technician Jeff Barnes in 1999 (which was later taken over by Michael McGee), who put the screws to Lindsay Rappaport (Catherine Hickland) after she paid him to change the paternity test results for baby Matthew Buchanan (Eddie Alderson), so she could get Nora (Hillary B. Smith) out of the way and have Bo (Robert S. Woods) all to herself.

                Look for Baker to first air as Brad’s dad on Friday, June 24.

                In other news…

                Carlos Gonzalez posted that he will be playing a cop on “One Life to Live” from May 25 through June 6, along with a picture of him and his fellow dayplayer cops on his website.
