      The man with Todd’s original face has spent the night at John’s. Looking for answers, John takes a DNA sample, warns him to stay put, then leaves to have it analyzed. Roxy nearly discovers him. The man with Todd’s original face listens to an incoming message for John from Tomas who wants to talk about Todd Manning. Defying John’s orders, he answers the phone in John’s voice.

      Knowing Téa’s searching for the truth, Todd admits he’s been involved in some dangerous business dealings but assures her that’s all over and, as he believes, the person who kidnapped Sam is dead. Todd and Téa end up making love. Afterward, Todd goes to his office and discovers John McBain, who has covertly obtained a sample of Todd’s DNA.

      Tomas tells Blair the story he told Téa about his involvement with the CIA. Blair appreciates his opening up and agrees to go to David’s movie premiere with him.

Rex later sees Blair and Téa blithely having their hair done and grows even darker. Dorian receives a call for Clint warning her to back off Echo or face prosecution herself. Dorian later tells David she was forced to drop the charges against Echo and though both Dorian and David are disappointed that Echo won’t pay for her crime, they focus on the impending movie premiere and look forward to a great night.

        On “One Life to Live” Shenell Edmonds plays Destiny Evans, a teenager who is seventeen and pregnant. That alone would be enough to scare the average teenager. But it is even worse for Destiny, considering she is estranged from her grandparents, her father is in jail, and her boyfriend recovering from severe brain injuries in a special treatment center hours away. Next month, the frightened young mother-to-be weighs her options, and has her world turned upside down yet again, thanks to forces (and people) beyond her control.

        On Monday, August 8, Tonye Patano reprises her role as Destiny’s grandmother Phylicia Evans when the troubled teen confides in her and asks for her help with the matter after receiving some important information from Dr. Vivian Wright (Kearran Giovanni). Meanwhile, Matthew (Eddie Alderson) receives a special visit from his big brother David (Tuc Watkins), and the two share a little bonding time. (In June, both Patano and her onscreen husband Frankie Faison, who plays Richard Evans, were spotted leaving the studio after taping scenes).

        For a time all seems well, however, what will happen when Bo (Robert S. Woods) and Nora (Hillary B. Smith) learn about their their son’s girlfriend’s little bundle of joy and how will their reaction to the news affect the relationship between their two families? And just how will big brother (er, uncle) Shaun (Sean Ringgold) handle the news of little Destiny’s pregnancy? Be sure to tune in next month to find out! It’s an event you won’t want to miss…

        In other news…

        Check out these photos of Andrew Trischitta (Jack) with some of his co-stars from Trevor St. John‘s (Todd) last day on the set last Friday. The shots include one of Trischitta and St. John, as well as this one of his onscreen sister Kelley Missal (Dani), and another one of them in a different pose.


        ( — Llanview loses a Todd, Dorian moves on to a higher calling, Kelly makes her next move, and other casting changes for the month of August.

        As we previously reported, Trevor St. John (Todd) revealed on his website in June that he would be leaving “One Life to Live” when his current contract ends this summer. We now know his final tape date, which, according to Soap Opera Digest was last Friday (July 22). SOD also reports that St. John treated his fellow cast and crew mates to a catered breakfast, lunch, and snacks on set, and his onscreen daughter Kristen Alderson (Starr) tweeted that she had received “Gorgeous ‘thank you’ flowers from Trevor St. John… Going to MISS him around the studio. Love, love, love him.” Just a few days earlier she also commented that “Trevor made us laugh, laugh, & laugh today!”

        According to reports “OLTL” has ripped a page from the headlines to help give Robin Strasser (Dorian) a proper sendoff. Apparently, Mayor Lord will be receiving an offer too good to pass up in the coming weeks when she is called to serve as a Senator after her predecessor is ousted as a result of a scandal that is eerily similar to that of real-life former Congressman Anthony Weiner of New York. Strasser, who last airs on Thursday, August 25, is reportedly leaving “One Life” as a result of back problems.

        August also marks a new chapter in the life of another Cramer girl as Dorian’s niece Kelly (Gina Tognoni), who just recently reunited with her old beau Joey Buchanan (Tom Degnan), makes a decision about her future on Wednesday, August 17.

        And, just because James (Nic Robuck) hasn’t been seen lately, don’t look for him to be leaving Llanview anytime soon. In fact, look for he and Starr to grow closer in the coming weeks.

        In other news…

        Meena Nerurkar and Harsh Nayyar play Vimal’s  (Nick Choksi) parents from India.

        Helmar Augustus Cooper portrayed Louie, the man who pulled the man with the scar (Roger Howarth) out of the Llantano River last Friday.

        Austin Peck is still taping scenes as the sleazy porn producer Rick Powers.

        Carlos Gonzalez appeared again as Officer Garcia back on Tuesday, July 19.

        Look for some courtroom scenes coming up next month as Clint (Jerry verDorn) prepares to face the music for the crimes he recently confessed to. The scenes will also feature a dayplayer judge and Clint’s attorney, however, it is unclear at this time if the Buchanan patriarch hires Morgan Guthrie (Tom Zeman) to represent him, or if he gets someone else.

        Kristen Alderson tweeted this picture of herself in her Starr clothes as she prepared to tape scenes on July 19 along with the tweet “All dressed and ready for Llanview! Have a great day everyone!” Later she commented that it was “Nap Time in Llanview. So Cozy..” So keep a watch out in the coming week’s for Starr’s green dress.

        Is Barret Helms (Baz) not long for Llanview? Last Saturday he tweeted a fan that “It’s gonna be a while til I work again.” And on June 21 he tweeted that he had “Just finished one of the craziest 13 week periods of my life!!” It should be noted that Helms was cast on April 14, the day ABC cancelled “One Life to Live” and “All My Children.”

        David A. Gregory (Ford) has also been MIA from the studios lately. The actor commented on Facebook on July 17 that “I haven’t been in to the studio this month. Going back in soon.”

        Check out these adorable pictures of Andrew Trischitta (Jack) hanging out at the “OLTL” studios last week with his onscreen little brother Patrick Gibbons, Jr. (Sam). And here’s a picture of the plaque outside Trischitta’s dressing room which also lists his “roommates” Eddie Alderson (Matthew) and David A. Gregory.

        And “OLTL’s” Music Director Paul S. Glass, responds to a question from a fan asking about the name of the song played in the closing montage of the June 11, 2008 episode (where Adriana left Rex for Paris), by tweeting that it was “CARMEN RIZZO ‘Next Life,’ featuring Thomas Hanreich.”

        The man with Todd’s original face conceals himself in John’s bedroom as Téa relays the information she gleaned from Tomas: That he is ex-CIA and, though on the scene at Todd’s shooting, was not responsible for it. In fact, he acted to save Todd. John tells Téa to leave the investigating to him.

        Elsewhere, Tomas informs Todd that he was compelled to give Téa a few tidbits in the hope that it will satisfy her curiosity.

        Natalie, fresh off another argument with Jessica, visits Brody. She agrees that they should move in together, but not at the Angel Square Hotel where they’ll be rubbing the relationship in John’s nose. At EOD Brody misses a call from Vimal, who may have made a decision as to whether or not he’ll keep Brody’s secret.

        Viki takes note of the continuing thaw between Jessica and Ford. James advises Ford not to get any closer to Jessica.
