( — You gotta have Hope.


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. 

The Inside Story: Baby Steps
Brody’s attempt lure out Jessica begins to back fire when Bess persuades Nash’s parents that he is dangerous.  When Cindy whacks him on the head, Jessica temporarily returns on Monday, June 1.  However, Bess soon regains control of the situation.  As the police, along with Bo, Viki, and Clint, begin to close in on the Brennan’s home, Bess locks herself in an unpstairs bedroom only to be confronted by Tess. Desperate to get her daughter back, Viki devises a dangerous plan on Tuesday, June 2.  Meanwhile, Natalie and Jared explain the details of the situation to a despondant Phil and Cindy, who spirits are raised upon learning that they really do have a granddaughter.  On Wednesday, June 3, Viki fakes being her gatekeeper personality Jean Randolph, and manages to convince Bess that Jessica needs to face the truth.  Shortly thereafter, Jessica returns and understands that her baby has died. With her mother’s encouragment, Jessica is able to recall the details of the night she gave birth to Chloe.  As she prepares to leave for Llanview with Viki and Clint, Jessica and Brody glance at one another. 

A Closer Look: Renewed Hope
Todd is relieved to hear that Starr no longer despises him.  All those involved have conflicting emotions on exactly what baby Hope’s return means for them on Monday, June 1. John provides Marty with a shoulder to lean on after she voices her concerns about Cole.  On Tuesday, June 2, Starr conveys her feelings about the baby to Langston, while Cole confesses to Markko that, while he wants to keep the baby, he can’t bring himself to ask Starr to go back on her promise to Marcie.  Starr considers her future with Cole, who can’t picture his life without her.  Later, Starr and Cole have an encounter.  By Friday, June 5, Blair asks Starr if she still plans on letting Marcie adopt her baby.  John raises Cole’s spirits.  Viki and Clint are heartbroken as Jessica says good-bye to Hope.  At the same time, Starr and Cole await their baby’s return.  Jessica somehow gathers the courage to tell Bree that Chloe will no longer be living with them.  Viki places Hope in the arms of Todd and Blair, while Brody discovers an emotionally distaught Jessica in the nursery.  And, as Marcie and Michael prepare to welcome Hope into their family, they receive an apology from Todd, as only he can deliver.

Alderson, Buddy Keep Roots in Llanview

Wednesday, May 27, 2009 3:18 AM ET | By Scotty Gore

( – Kristen Alderson and Brandon Buddy set the record straight about their future with “One Life to Live.”  

With Internet speculation swirling that Llanview’s tumultuous teen couple Starr Manning and Cole Thornhart may soon be out the door, the actors behind two of “One Life to Live’s” most popular characters tackle the rumors surrounding their future with the show. 

For almost a decade, Kristen Alderson has literally grown up before the eyes of “One Life” fans as the troubled daughter of reformed rapist Todd Manning.  Now the 18-year-old actress is ready to advance to the next stage of her career, venturing into primetime.  However, Alderson admits that, while interested in pursuing guest appearances in after dark network television, she is content on staying true to her daytime roots, telling Soap Opera Digest that “I’m definitely not planning to leave ‘One Life to Live.’”

As for Buddy, reports indicate that the actor, who made his “OLTL” debut in 2006 as the son of Marty Saybrooke and Patrick Thornhart, also has no plans to leave Llanview anytime soon.  That appears to be the story, despite speculation that the daytime sudser may be planning to kill off the character of Cole.  Instead, it appears that Buddy will remain with the show for the foreseeable future, and that viewers can expect to see more of Cole in the weeks and months ahead.   

In other news…

Matt Drago will return to “OLTL” in the coming months in a dayplayer capacity.  Drago, who appeared as a Rodi’s Patron last month, posted in his blog for the week of May 17th that “…tomorrow I will be back on set in ‘One Life to Live’!”  The soap regularly tapes approximately six weeks in advance.   

The recently released audition script for the role of Elijah Kent looks to be for a new lawyer.  Also, another audition script has just been released by “OLTL,” this time for the role of a Rabbi.   SON will have more details on these casting calls as they becomes available.
