THIS WEEK ON: ONE LIFE TO LIVE
Rex doesn’t like seeing Gigi and Schuyler together on Monday, June 1. Hoping for the sympathy vote from Rex, Stacy asks Stan to hit her in the face before she will hand over his money. Much to her delight, Rex again falls for her ploys. Meanwhile, Schuyler and Gigi grow concerned after Stacy’s blood sample mysteriously turns up missing. Fish demands Schuyler calm down after he attacks Kyle, and accusses him of stealing Stacy’s blood on Wednesday, June 3. Later, Stacy brushes off Kyle’s warnings about her sister and Schuyler. Believing the loft to be empty, they sneak in to try to keep another sample of Stacy’s DNA. Instead, they arrive just as Stacy has Rex into a rather compromising position. On Thursday, June 4, the sisters engage in a cat fight. Afterward, Gigi bolsters Schuyler’s confidence by revealing that she got what they came for. Elsewhere in Llanview, Rachel asks her mother point blank about her feelings for Bo and Clint on Tuesday, June 2. Fish’s dislike of his old buddy Kyle is clearly evident. The search for a third roommate gets off to a rough start for Layla and Cristian. After warning Destiny not get to get her hopes up with regards to their brother, Shaun invites Rachel out for a night on the town on Thursday, June 4. Destiny, meanwhile, conceals her excitement of spending more time with Matthew as she helps him study for an exam. Cristian and Layla decide to allow Fish to be their roommate, but trouble may be brewing on the horizon.
