(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — ABC offers fans a special treat next week with a special online version of the February 15th episode of “One Life to Live.”
With a blizzard blowing through Llantano Mountain and several characters on thin ice (both literally and figuratively), Monday’s episode of the popular ABC sudser will offer up much drama for several Llanview residents, including Rex, Stacy, and Gigi.
In conjunction with the special episode, ABC.com will provide interested viewers with two options on the website’s Full Episode Player. Starting on the morning of Tuesday, February 16th, you can watch the episode as it aired the day before on ABC. However, you can also view the same episode, but with special added commentary throughout the show from John-Paul Lavoisier (Rex) and Farah Fath (Gigi), who will share their thoughts and insights into the writing and filming of that particular episode. Lavoisier and Fath will also provide a sneak peek into some of the special effects used to turn Llantano Mountain into a dangerous winter wonderland.
For those who cannot wait until next week, here is a little preview into Monday’s episode…
With Stacy’s baby in her arms, Gigi falls through the ice. As she manages to keep the baby out of the freezing water, Rex and Schuyler work to save the aunt and niece. After being pulled to safety, Schuyler breathes life back into the woman he loves, as Rex looks on. At the cabin, Kim locates Stacy, who promptly vanishes. Dorian is worried when Mitch offers up a new threat against her family. Kelly and Adriana accept champagne from a stranger named Emile in Paris, and later Adriana leaves with the guy. Kelly gets a call from Cassie informing her that Dorian’s claims could actually be true. Charlie confesses to Viki that he was the one who shot Jessica, but explains that he was aiming for Mitch. Meanwhile, Mitch delights in telling Viki that Charlie and Dorian were in cahoots together. Viki later has a run-in with Dorian. And Marty isn’t able to keep her emotions in check after seeing John and Natalie kissing one another.
This is not the first time ABC has offered special episode commentary with regards to their daytime dramas. On January 29th, “General Hospital” stars Lisa LoCicero (Olivia) and Dominic Zamprogna (Dante) talked viewers through the episode where Sonny shot Dante after learning he was an undercover cop, and then discovering that he was his son.
