When Cara asks how things are going between her and Griffin, Kendall admits she needs to let go of her past. Ryan catches Griffin in David’s office and questions if he’s having doubts about David. Griffin tells Ryan the Orpheus Project is a research project but doesn’t expand because he doesn’t want to risk ruining something that is bigger than all of them. Ryan warns Griffin if David’s secrets end up getting people hurt that will be on Griffin’s head. Ryan tells Kendall that Griffin knows about the Orpheus Project and could possibly be helping David control Erica. Kendall can’t believe he’d hide something from her and is disappointed that he might be working with David. Erica insists to Jack and Jesse that she is telling the truth. They listen as she details story of what has gone down over the past few months with her, David, Jane and Ben. Acting as her concerned fiance and a doctor, David plays on Jack and Jesse’s disbelief of the outrageous story. Frustrated as David continues to do what he can to discredit her, Erica ultimately stabs him. David will only Griffin to treat him. He claims all the others will die without him. Erica is sent to Oak Haven for an evaluation and runs into Janet.

Tad and Cara toast to the road that led them together and are proud of the fact that were both able to let the other put to rest their past relationships. JR talks to Dixie but in his drunken state thinks she is a figment of his imagination. He believes he would be better off dead but reconsiders when he thinks about AJ. JR thanks Dixie for the talk and stumbles away to go and find his son. Still drunk JR shows up at Krystal’s only to find that AJ is at the movies with Marissa. He takes his anger out on Krystal, claiming she wants everyone to be miserable because she couldn’t hold onto Tad, and when she tries to call Tad, JR grabs her. Realizing what he’s doing JR drops to the couch with his head in his hands. Tad shows up to help him and is startled when JR says Dixie was not happy with him and wouldn’t talk to him today.

            ( — “One Life to Live” fans can breathe a sigh of relief. After months of reports of old faces returning to sister soap “All My Children’s” for its ABC finale, “One Life” finally have something to cheer about, with two big returns of its own. This fall, Andrea Evans (Tina) and John Loprieno (Cord) will be finding their way back home to Llanview to reunite with friends and family.

            According to both Soap Opera Digest and ABC Soaps in Depth the actors, who were last seen in 2008 for “One Life’s” 40th anniversary celebration, will be returning for a brief stint beginning in September. The show is set to wrap production on its TV run in November ahead of its final ABC episode, which is set to air on January 20, 2012. It will then move production to online-only distribution.

            As for how Evans’ return will affect her recurring role Tawny on “The Bold and the Beautiful,” a spokesperson for the show reveals that “We’re thrilled for Andrea and her fans that she gets to return to ‘OLTL’ before they go off the air to reprise a role that started her illustrious career in daytime television. We’re also happy to report that Andrea remains a part of the ‘B&B’ family portraying the character of Tawny Moore.”

            In a statement issued by ABC, Evans comments that “Working with John is and always has been a pleasure. Our characters of Tina and Cord have always had an easy chemistry, and I am delighted that we will be able to bring them both to Llanview once again!” In the same press release, Loprieno adds that “Working with Andrea was one of the high points of my acting career. Her work ethic, wonderful talent and incredible sense of humor were always appreciated on the set and in rehearsal. When I think of all the times I had fun on the set or interacting with people backstage, Andrea figures prominently in those memories.”

            Evans echoed similar thoughts on her website shortly after ABC cancelled “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” back in April, stating that “I am heartbroken over the cancellations of both ‘AMC’ & ‘OLTL.’ ‘OLTL’ has been a huge part of my life & some of my oldest friends live & work in Llanview.And, if at all possible, I would love to bring Tina back home where she belongs.”

            Andrea Evans originated the role of Tina Lord in 1978. After leaving the show in 1981, she would return from 1985-1990 and again in 2008. John Loprieno debuted as Cord Roberts in 1986. Exiting the show in 1992, he would later reprise the role from 1993-97, and again in 2004 and 2008.

            No word on first airdates for either actor, nor is it known the number of episodes they are returning for.

              ( — “All My Children” Episode Recap – Wednesday, July 20, 2011.

              IT HAPPENED TODAY…

              Frankie doesn’t believe Asher when he says he needs another bottle of pills because Colby lost the ones he had. Instead he’s convinced Asher is developing a serious problem. Asher threatens to find a doctor who will give him the pills. Caleb overhears Asher and Frankie and agrees his son needs help.

              JR tells Amanda he can relate to some of what she’s feeling because of his own situation. He tells Amanda that Marissa fell in love with Bianca and takes a drink from a flask. Amanda’s sorry to see that he’s drinking again and hopes he gets his act together but won’t be the one to help him do it. Caleb and Asher find JR drinking in the parlor and Caleb grabs the flask and chucks it in the garbage. He plans on taking Asher home where he belongs. An angry JR doesn’t want Asher to leave and gets nasty, telling Caleb it’s a little too late to be a father now. Asher leaves and JR pours himself another drink.

              Amanda tells JR about her biopsy but declines his offer of support should it turn out to be cancerous, saying he is the last person she would turn to for support. In tears, Amanda goes home to Opal and admits she might have cancer.

              Tad tells Cara that Dixie’s father just passed away and they must have found the journal in his stuff. Tad reads the diary and learns that Dixie always wanted the type of life she had with him. Overwhelmed, Tad needs to get away from the house. Tad and Cara head off to the park and he admits that life with Dixie was a life changer for him, made him see himself differently. He figured if she loved him than he couldn’t be all that bad. Cara doesn’t believe he was ever bad so he tells her the story of “Tad the Cad”. Dixie changed him and when they were finally able to be together, she died. Tad comes to the realization that he needs to find out who he is separate from Dixie. Cara offers to help him move on like he helped her move on from Jake.

                Real-Life Husband and Wife Duo Returning to 'All My Children'

                ( – On Tuesday, ABC Daytime announced that Justin Bruening and Alexa Havins will be making a return to “All My Children” before shop closes on ABC Daytime. The duo who played Jamie Martin and Babe Carey on the ABC soap from the Fall of 2003 to the Fall of 2007 will return for a handful of episodes scheduled to air in September. Bruening and Havins met on the cast of the ABC soap in 2003 and were officially married on June 5, 2005. The couple welcomed daughter Lexington Grace into the fold on August 9, 2010.

                Bruening first aired on “AMC” in the role of the son of Tad Martin (Michael E. Knight) and Brooke English (Julia Barr), Jamie, in September of 2003. He remained with the show until August 2007. The former model has jumped into the prime-time television pool somewhat successfully since his departure from daytime television. The hunk landed the leading role on the NBC reboot of the “Knight Rider” series after a television movie reboot, also starring Bruening, of the series landed good ratings. The series aired in the 2008-2009 season before being cancelled. Recently, Bruening was set to star as the male lead in a “Wonder Woman” television series reboot for the same network. The series was dropped from contention for a time-slot in the 2011-2012 fall line-up due to excessively high production cost. The actor has guest starred on multiple prime-time series’ including ABC’s “Castle” and and CBS’ “CSI: Miami.”

                Havins, of course, played the controversial but popular Babe Carey Chandler on “AMC” from October 13, 2003 to October 8, 2007. The role of David Hayward (Vincent Irizarry) and Krystal Carey’s (Bobbie Eakes) daughter and the love of JR Chandler’s (Jacob Young) life was immediately recast. Havins was replaced by Amanda Baker no later than on October 8, 2007. Babe died after being crushed in the wreckage of a tornado protecting her son, AJ Chandler, the following year. Or did she? With her father’s project encompassing the entire canvas at the moment, one can’t rule out Babe miraculously returning in the flesh due to his machinations quite yet. Havins earned a Daytime Emmy Award nomination for her work on “AMC” in 2005. The 30-year-old actress recently landed a series regular role on STARZ series “Torchwood: Miracle Day.” Before landing the role, she had guest-starred on several prime-time series including FX’s “Rescue Me” and ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy.”

                Soap Opera Network will continue to keep viewers and readers updated as we get more information on both the specific dates and length of returns for all of the returning actors. Bruening and Havins comebacks brings the total amount of actors confirmed to return to “AMC” since the news of cancellation this past April to fifteen. Only Cady McClain and Thorsten Kaye are scheduled for returns that extend to more than a handful or two of episodes.

                “AMC” concludes airing on ABC on Friday, September 23. Prospect Park has licensed both “AMC” and “One Life to Live” from ABC and is rumored to be prepared to have new episodes of “AMC” set to go by Monday, September 26. Fans are skeptical of that as numerous actors from the 41-year-old daytime drama have confirmed that they have yet to be contacted by the production company to discuss any potential negotiations. All “AMC” actors will be released from their contracts with ABC on August 31, 2011, the last day of filming.
