        ( — “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.

The man with Todd’s original face pulls a gun on Todd and marches him out to go see what Téa and Blair and Viki have to say.

            Natalie and John question whether there could be two Todd Mannings. Natalie looks for forensic evidence, and later finds a hair on the real super hero that doesn’t match that on his head. John confronts Tomas about the encrypted file that turned up when the dead Kent’s prints were run. Tomas insists he knows nothing about it.

            Blair presses Tomas to say something if he knows something about Sam but insists he doesn’t. Jack finally reveals he was attacked in the office. Before John can react, Dani comes in and reveals she thought she heard Sam’s voice at the Minute Man. John and cops show up there but, there’s no sign of Sam – only part of the super hero costume, etc.
