(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Back in June at the Creative Arts Emmy Awards, “One Life to Live” executive producer Frank Valentini alluded to Soap Opera Network that we hadn’t seen the last of Farah Fath despite her character, Gigi Morasco, being killed off. In our Twitter posting that night, we stated “according to Frank Valentini, more surprises in store for #OLTL. Have we seen the last of Gigi? Don’t believe what you see!” Come August, that’s never been more certain!
During the “One Life to Live” Fan Club Weekend, Fath herself shed a little light on her storyline when she shared with a fan that “the storyline’s not over.” So how can that be considering Gigi died in June thanks to carbon monoxide poisoning after being locked in a basement by Jack Manning (Andrew Trischitta), his buddy Brad (Frank Dolce), and Llanview High School cheerleader Hayley (Gaby Leyner)? Well Gigi’s heart may have gone to Clint Buchanan (Jerry verDorn), which conveniently occurred off-screen, but Stacy’s (played by Crystal Hunt) body was never recovered.
Interestingly enough, Stacy’s best friend Kim (Amanda Setton), Clint’s most recent ex-wife, returns on Friday, August 19. In the episode, the character will learn some interesting information from Rex (John-Paul Lavoisier) about the goings on in Llanview and shares these tidbits with a certain someone next week.
We wonder what that means? Hmmm…
(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — It appears that not even death can keep Gigi Morasco (Farah Fath) away from Llanview and her beloved Rex (John-Paul Lavoisier). Fath revealed recently that, even after her character’s demise, “I can’t say that I’m 100% done with the show.” True to her word, the actress brings Gigi back to “Life” in the coming weeks when Rex needs her the most. But is it really her spirit that is seeing, or simply a product of his grieving, overactive imagination?
When viewers last saw Gigi she was brain dead and lying in a coma after suffering from carbon monoxide poisoning as a result of Jack Manning (Andrew Trischitta) and his friends Brad (Frank Dolce) and Hayley’s (Gaby Leyner) actions. Later Rex made a bargain with Clint (Jerry verDorn) to give the Buchanan family patriarch Gigi’s heart. Now with Clint on the mend, Rex is focusing his full attention on seeking revenge on Jack and his millionaire publisher father Todd Manning (Trevor St. John).
The week of August 1, Rex makes an important decision and later receives a visit from beyond the grave. However, things aren’t always what they seem, which leads Echo (Kim Zimmer) to become concerned about her son’s state of mind. But just how far will Rex go to try and prove that what he thinks he is seeing is real? And what will it mean for his family? Tune in to find out!
