Paraphrased & Reworded:
Summer Preview:

RC says that Tale Of Two Todd's will dominate OLTL this summer. There will be tons of story for every character on the canvas, but the Two Todd's story is what they are most excited about and the cherry on top.

Tale Of Two Todds: RH's character is being held someplace. He escapes and makes his way to Llanview. The story of the summer is what happens when he gets there and starts interacting with Blair, Tea, Starr, and Viki. Is he or isn't he Todd is the question. The big moment being built up to is when RH and Todd come face to face. The question is how will they react to one another and if they are surprised to see one another. The reveal of RH's characters identity will unfold as the summer story. Clues will be given but just when you think you've figured it out, you'll learn you don't know.

Clint/Matthew/Bo/Nora: The Buchanans are falling apart. Clint needs a heart transplant but he is low on the list. Then there's Matthew who has a brain injury. He survives surgery, but has an unexpected complication. So he and Clint are both in trouble. This will really complicate things for Clint & Matthew, Bo & Nora. Clint is looking for a heart and Matthew has one and they share the same blood type.

Shane/Jack/Rex/Gigi: Rex and Gigi plan their wedding. Jack doesn't stop his bullying of Shane. Shane starts to fight back and stand up for himself. This makes Jack even worse. Jack and his pal hatch a revenge plan. The tension between the Mannings and Balsoms reaches epic levels. This story will end in tragedy.

Blair/Tomas: Their relationship deepens, but he's keeping secrets from her. Plus there's a man with Todd's old face running around town.

Marty/Natalie/John: Marty is on the run with Liam but when she learns that Natalie's alive it ruins her plan. She wants Natalie gone, but she gets heavily involved in the Todd story. She learns the Todd/Tomas secret and uses it to keep Todd under her control. Viewers will see resolution to Todd & Marty's relationship. RC says he thought it was important to tie Marty back to Todd. The tape with Marty's confession will keep passing from one person to another and someone may have their own motoves to use it. John is leading the search for Liam, not knowing he's searching for his own son. There are many opportunities for the truth to come out over the summer.

Aubrey/Joey/Kelly: Aubrey has a battle ahead of her. It's not determined if Joey and Kelly will reunite.

Cutter/Tess/Brody/Ford: Cutter commits Tess. She's admitted to St. Anns and not happy about it. Ford and Tess are starting to develop feelings for each other. But they deny it. Brody and Natalie shared a moment and there are feelings under the surface, but he couldn't go there until he tried everything he could to get Jess back. That seems to be failing. They become even more closer while searching for the baby.

David: David returns and will be on all summer. It's unpredictable how his movie turned out.

Starr/James/Deanna/Nate/Dani: Deanna causes problems for both Manning girls relationships. She's living with Nate & knows he caused Matthew's injury so they begin to grow closer. Starr & James' relationship builds but they are affected by the Todd story. There will be romance.

Echo/Viki/Dorian: Echo wants revenge against Dorian & Viki. She focuses on one of them & goes after her. She also be involved in the Rex/Shane stuff. Viki is back by Clint's side. She can't abandon him. She will also be involved in the Todd story and Jess/Nat story.

Cristian/Rama/Vimal: Rama feels guilty about lying to Vimal and she has feelings for Cristian. There's a chance Vimal will get out of prison and that will complicate things.

Newcomers Baz & Yvette: Baz has close ties to someone. It might not be who you think. He's into music, which may hint who he'll cross paths with. Yvette is connected to Baz.

Joey & Aubrey Showdown

Joey confronts Aubrey about her lies. Aubrey admits to Joey that she was conning him at first, but now is in love with him for real. Joey rips into her, but they have to stay married so they can keep Ryder. They have to act like everything is fine. Aubrey thinks she can win Joey back but his feelinsg for Kelly are back. Joey visits Kelly and tells her what's going on. John also pays Kelly a visit. They part ways. Kelly realizes he still cares for Natalie. They agree that they can't be friends. She knows he wants Natalie and she wants Joey.

Matthews Brain Injury

Both mags have same story on it. He has bleeding in his brain. EA talks about the story & seems happy & says how it'll bring everyone together so he's cook with just laying in bed. Bo and Nora tell Destiny what's going on.

Two Todds

We see more of RH this week. He's being held in some mysterious confinement. The story heats up when RH begins to have scenes with the people he used to share scenes with. Todd & Tomas have formed a strange alliance and he's now fine with Tomas living at his house. Todd & Tomas' alliance ties to the man with the scar on his face whose on his way to town.

Marty & Todd Alliance

Viewers don't know what the secret between Tomas & Todd is, but Marty does. She overhears Todd & Tomas talking & tells Todd to hide her or she'll reveal what she knows.

Week of 5/30

MARTY CONFIDES THE TRUTH TO TODD

Tomas stands watch over Marty, but when morning comes, Todd takes his turn. Marty refuses to believe Natalie is still alive when Todd tells her, so Todd leaves her to find proof of his claim. Marty vows to rectify that particular situation post haste. Natalie tells Brody that she is certain the tape of Marty’s session with Dr. Buhari contains critical information. Meanwhile, Roxy has found the tape. Roxy blabs to John that Brody and Natalie kissed recently. Marty discovers that Natalie is just outside the pool house and is prepared to kill her off, but Brody shows up so she hides. Todd comes to retrieve Marty and take her to another location. Marty tells Todd that she wants him to tell John that Liam is his son. When John and Brody arrive at Todd’s house with a warrant, the house is empty, but John goes to the pool house where he discovers Tomas holding Liam.

Viki tries to reason with Tess without success. Ford shows up to rescue Tess from St. Ann’s, but he wants the goods on Aubrey and Joey so he can get custody of his son. Eventually Tess tells Ford everything, but they are caught trying to escape and Ford is ejected from the facility. Joey is amazed to learn the sacrifices Clint made to ensure Jessica received the help that she needs. Cutter evicts Joey and Aubrey and Ryder, but allows Rama to stay after she persuades him that she was on his side and tried to persuade Aubrey to stay with him. Ford finds Ryder with Aubrey and tells her he will use the information he got from Tess to get his son back. Aubrey points out that the judge’s reaction might not be what Ford expects and offers to work with him to get better visitation. Aubrey lets Ford take Ryder for the day, which makes Joey furious. Joey vows he will be rid of Aubrey so he can be with Kelly.

Monday, Memorial Day holiday is a time for OLTL to air the April 15th rerun, where Clint belatedly reaches out to a bullied Shane over Rex’s dead body.
Roger Howarth’s character, aka “The Man With The Scar,” shakes his WSB-like shackles loose, evades the suits, and runs for the hills.
Todd and Tomas tag-team babysit Marty, ‘cause she’s a loose cannon and they have to.
Todd reports that Natalie survived Marty’s shove off the Angel Square Motel, but Marty thinks he’s high for saying this.
Todd goes to retrieve evidence that what he’s saying about Natalie is true to Marty.
Natalie’s indestructibility – in the face of falling off a tall building and surviving – dismays Marty to no end. And sets Marty determined to go back and get the job done (in deleting Nat permanently).
Natalie shares her belief with Brody that whatever caused this whole mess can be figured out once they get their hands on the missing session tape.
Natalie joins Brody as he returns to Todd’s for some answers.
Roxy haplessly picks up the missing session tape of Marty confessing all to the late Dr. Bhuhari.
Roxy lets the cat out of the bag to John about Natalie making out with Brody only days earlier. This causes John no small amount of torment.
Marty spies Natalie rounding a corner in Todd’s pool house.
Marty gets ready to pounce on Natalie for the final mortal combat, but then Brody comes around.
Brody does Natalie a huge solid, saving her bacon.
Todd returns to his house to get Marty and hide her somewhere else.
Marty pushes Todd to be completely forthcoming with John about the true DNA linking him after all to Liam.
Armed with a search warrant this time, John and his police force do a thorough search of Todd’s place and come across something immensely fascinating to a certain case: Tomas and Liam, together, at the pool house.
Tomas maintains his cover to Blair, not giving himself away.
Ford gives Shane some food for thought. And it’s valuable food for thought too, which Gigi appreciates, however odd the source.
Shane doesn’t lie down and take Jack’s sh*t anymore.
Gigi and Blair get mean with each other, too. They’re yelling and carrying on.
Refusing to take the hint and actually have a life of his own, Jack proceeds to screw with Shane bigtime.
Annoyed with recent events, Gigi proceeds to kick some ass. But her actions could backfire.
Matthew receives proper health care for his head trauma, relieving everyone who knows about this and loves him, including his parents, Destiny and Dani.
Just when it seems Matthew’s gonna come around, he falters.
The hospital staff tries to ascertain what next to do with additional tests on Matthew.
Matthew’s health deteriorates fast, until he is on nothing but life support. This hits his parents—and Destiny—like a ton of bricks.
Viki and Rex surround Bo and Nora with love as they wait out Matthew’s health crisis.
Filled with remorse and scared out of his mind, Nate attempts to check in on Matthew’s health progress.
It’s the worst news for Nate to hear about Matthew dying and never coming back.
The only person Nate feels safe enough to confide in, is Deanna. He vents about having caused Matthew’s head trauma and what to do.
When Nate’s unburdening himself to Deanna, the porno king Rick is nearby, absorbing every word for his future gain.
Rex takes up some serious matters with Clint, voice raised as if in attack mode.
Clint suffers from massive heart failure as Rex and Viki helplessly stand by.
This is when Rex is informed that Clint will die from his heart condition, no question.
Clint’s cardiac arrest catapults him to the front of the list for a heart donation.
Matthew’s loss will turn out to be Clint’s last, saving gain.
Viki visits Tess at St. Ann’s, and maybe gets the girl to lighten up, face a few facts.
Tess tunes Viki out. Viki’s the enemy.
Bess reminds Tess she’s been pushed up against the wall and must face the last resort.
Ford tries and tanks at giving Tess an exit clause from St. Ann’s.
Ford grills the hell out of Tess as to what she’s got on Aubrey about Joey. Maybe Ford can use this gossip to win custody of Ryder.
Tess gives Ford all her secrets about Aubrey and Cutter.
In return, Ford puts on an orderly costume to quietly, quickly escort Tess out of St. Ann’s and to freedom. Not so fast.
Tess and Ford barely get to the exit doors of St. Ann’s before staff clamp down on them and send Ford on his way.
Joey stands there dumbfounded by Clint’s sacrifice for Jessica—and the fact that Cutter’s moving in as the new owner of Asa’s mansion.
Joey and Cutter fight amongst themselves.
Cutter relishes his place at the head of the table (sole owner of a billion-dollar mansion, for starters).
Cutter has all the riff-raff (this means you Aubrey and you too Joey) vacate Asa’s mansion.
Rama works on Cutter to relent on all this by lying her ass off of course.
Rama’s lies that she was the one who worked on Aubrey to go back with Cutter works; Cutter makes an exception for Rama to stay in the mansion.

Robin Strasser's recent announcement that she will not be in the last weeks of the show saddens many of her fans but sources say that her Doctor said that surgery is not urgent at this time and if she wants to do the ending she is free to do so. But after going to Robin's Twitter account she wrote that she and the show have come to terms and agreed on her final tape date, July 1. Look for Dorian to depart Llanview sometime in August or September. While Dorian is 1/2 of the atom of OLTL and Viki the other half it saddens me to know she will not be around for the final days. For more on Robin go to http://twitter.com/#!/robinstrasser
Todd not "Todd" saves Marty from a shallow grave. He also becomes ensnared in the bullying story. Didn't you love when Madame Delphina said the man with Marty is wearing a mask. Was that a clue or what!!!! Natalie discovers something suspicious at a recent crime scene........Todd is about to tell John about Marty, until McBain harasses him and he changes his mind......Tea gets 'devastating news' and the next day, lives hang in the balance at the hospital. John finally gets his hands on Marty's tape....The word on the street is that by August we will have 3 gone and by September another 5 say goodbye to Llanview.

http://www.soaptownusa.com/Loose.html


Robin Strasser just announced on Twitter:

Quote:
HONORABLE DISCHARGE JUST SIGNED AND FAXED. Mutually agreed to, I will tape my last show July 1. I look forward to my life AFTER One Life.
http://twitter.com/robinstrasser


Rumors Gina Tognoni will be out in July as well but not confimed yet. Also from Robins twitter:
"Have no control over how they'll write Dorian/Kelly off by July 1- I haven't had significant story in years-hoping they'll do D. and K.good."

I'm not crazy about Shanes bullying coming back into play either and it sounds as if it will be worse this time. Wondering if there is a curveball coming since we already know Shane and Clint have the same blood type.

You would think whoever is holding RHs Todd would think hes headed to Llanview but this whole thing has been poorly done so far, so it wouldnt surprise me if they just drop that alltogether once hes back in town.

So bummed Strasser is leaving early. I think it has more to do with her being so outspoken than her health but I do wish her the best with her surgery. Hopefully they will pretape at least a scene or two for the finale with her and Viki otherwise it will just be wrong. Both actresses and the fans deserve at least that much.

I dont know that Strasser actually wanted out early. Its being spun as mutual but after all the comments shes made she was expecting to be fired anyway and said as much. So I think its more of an "I'll quit before you can fire me" situation. Thats just my take though. Whatever the real story is I definately think theres more to it than meets the eye.

The Kelly comments are weird. I kinda figured theyd send Dorian off on some great adventure with David and like you that we'd have a Kelly/Joey wedding close to the end. Theres still no confirmation GT is out so maybe it was just something lost in twitter translation?

At this point its hard to tell whats really happening with a million different rumors flying everywhere.

I'd have to look up some of the exact quotes but she has been saying lots of nasty stuff about Frons and ABC among others. She called JPL butt smoocher of the year for thanking Frons for his amazing talent and creativity or something to that effect. She was ordered not to speak after the cancellation announcement and thats when she started her twitter account. Her and Cat Hickland did a blogtalk radio intvw together and spilled alot of gossip. I swear her twitter is like a soap in itself, especially if you go all the way back to the beginning. I think she also said some stuff on her hotline that got her in hot water but I havent heard that.

Cat Hickland talks very highly of the show and her time on it prior to Frons being hired. To listen to Cat and Robin, Frons is the devil and they dont try to hide their disdain for him at all. If I get some time this weekend I'll dig up some of their juicier tweets and comments and post them.

Heres just a bit of Strassers comments. All are exact quotes except the context of the Chelsea Handler part I added just to clarify. These are from around the time of the announcement up til the end of April.

Butt smoocher award goes to JP Lavoisier, who says "Thank you" to Frons for "amazing talent and decision making". Extricate lips, use brain.

KNOW I'll never work for these peeps again. Ask Be-atch Chelsea Handler, I'm 2 OLD. Not 2 old 2 tell the truth. Don't thank the foreclosers.

(Shes feuding with Chelsea Handler since Chelsea made fun of a David/Dorian love scene on her show.)

Note to Chelsea Handler: when u have my mileage, and don't look like roadkill, I hope you get paid to kiss gorgeous guys 2. Jealous/ageist?

Hanging in or hanging myself? All due respect: There is NO honor giving into some one else's bad program(ming). Respect/honor your AUDIENCE

Let's trade two iconic dramas for two untried cooker/realities? kill off hundreds of jobs in the process? delete protests? Diss-aster brew.

Luv all my 2,558 follower/friends! THANK YOU! Spouting my mouth off, is surely gonna cost me. I willingly pay price of honest protestation.

NY Post wants to talk to me? Read what they wrote yesterday. I did get a "directive" to "keep quiet". Pants on fire denies but it's true.

What r u going to do? Kill me?" Susan Hayward-I Want to Live- to Death Row guards. Dead Daytime Diva Walking proud. Right of right protest.

She walks in condescending certitude doesn't Oprah, having gotten rich in the afternoon. You could put a continuing drama on a night? HarpNO

DON'T TWEET TWEEKED: AMC/OLTL could be broadcast AT NIGHT, if Oprah opines that's the 1 digit obstacle. Her discourse drips diss-dain.

Swelled Head easier to place on chopping block. Just sayin' but payin' attention. I want to be a positive rep of my profession/our audience.

Going 2 work 2day/1st time since death sentence served. Note to self: maintain dignity, manifest respect,do the BEST u can! Luv 2 our fans.

Love,Loss,Dress I Wore: aware it not just ME, but 100's of others soon 2 be out of work does NOT make it easier. Wore black 1st day back.

http://twitter.com/robinstrasser


After that it goes for awhile with her making random tweets about life etc nothing really about the show or anything of note. Then it picks up again mid may with her talking generically about the show and trying to be positive. Since the news broke she was out early shes been revealing lots of backstage gossipy tidbits nothing really nasty just kinda fun stuff to read as a fan. I definately see a Strasser book coming....

Frons has proven himself an idiot over and over, clearly ABC just doesnt care which is sad. Its been a systematic destruction of the genre and unfortunately its almost complete.

Twitter can be fun. I mostly just read though since I've been having technical issues with it lately I'm not on there as much but I do try to check it every so often and keep up with a few of the more interesting people.

Strasser has spoken very highly of Slezak on twitter a few times. She made special mention of her anniversary and went on to say how much she loves working with her. I dont know if she'd tell the truth if they really hated each other but it seems to me she genuinely respect Erika. Like I said I smell a book coming lol.

Pretty much everyone is on twitter these days. Cat Hickland does alot of ABC/Frons bashing but she also constantly promotes her hypnosis shows which gets a little redundant but the ABC bashing is fun to read. I'm guessing the closer we get to the final days the more interesting the AMC/OLTL stars tweets will get. It was that way with GL and ATWT. I really hoped Kassie DePaiva would speak out more but shes stayed pretty quiet thus far. HBS doesnt tweet alot but when she does it can be entertaining. Shes big with the Venice crowd so and CC can be fun when they get together on there.

Lots of the real housewives (I think almost all of them) are on there. Some I follow some I dont. Charlie Sheens incoherent tweets make me laugh.

Strasser is quite hilarious. Love how she broke the news of Carlivati to GH lmao. Bethenny does have a twitter I follow her. KDP does seem to nice to speak out but I really wonder why more people arent. Its pretty clear the soap jobs are all going to be gone soon so why worry about pissing off the showrunners now?

I hope they bring Joey/Kelly back if they are needed too. I wouldnt even mind a one day cameo for the last day with Nathan Fillion back as Joey. I bet he'd do it. I also hope they bring back Dan Gauthier as Kevin in some way before the end. Curious to see who they are making room for to return.

BLAIR IS ON THE PROWL

Calmar nabs a suspicious Blair when she follows Tomas to New York. Blair pretends to comply when Calmar warns her to go home, but returns to hear Tomas angrily shouting and the sound of smashing glass. When Tomas leaves, Blair sneaks into the room to find a beautiful woman claiming to be Tomas’s wife, Yvette. Tomas returns and explains that he and Yvette have been separated for years, since he discovered her affair with another man and that she was pregnant with his child, but Yvette has refused to a divorce. Yvette informs Tomas that her son is actually his child. Meanwhile Starr meets Sebastian, who calls himself Baz, and they share an interest in music. Baz returns to New York, where his parents have been searching for him after discovering him missing, and admits to Tomas, Blair and Yvette that he went to Llanview to see what it was like. Tomas agrees to take custody of Baz at Yvette’s insistence and her agreement to finalize their divorce. As she departs, Yvette issues a cryptic warning to Blair about Tomas. Blair lures Baz back to Llanview with the promise that he can use the sound equipment at Capricorn. Tomas introduces Baz to Dani, and Baz invites himself to go along with her to the graduation. Starr is surprised to learn Baz is Tomas’s son, and James is none too thrilled. Blair checks with Tomas to see how things are going with Baz and Tomas admits that it’s a struggle.

After a conversation with Blair, John is considering reconciling with Natalie, but Natalie tells him of the decision she and Brody have reached.

Soaptown Loose Lips
ONE LIFE TO LIVE: The return of Roger Howarth is as bad if not worst then the return of Vanessa Marcil. Do TPTB even know what to do with the 2 Todds and others involved in this storyline? I hear the Todd story had to be rewritten because one of the actors was not happy. The Story was put on hold and rewriten all over again. Rewrite once more because Ted King wants to take his OUT....... We may or may not see Marty again, there were 2 more eppys shot with Marty in the aftermath but as of now with the show being cut short those scenes have not aired.....Viki begs Jessica to give Brody another chance but the question is does Brody want Jess or Natty?.....July will be even more confusing there have been heavy editing of taped scenes and newly taped scenes patched together which will make for a choppy July.......Except for Cutter's involvement, Brody's arc appears mostly in tact.......No word yet on more exits outside of those 8 going.


Farah Faths Farewell interview

ONE LIFE TO LIVE's Llanview is preparing to say goodbye to Farah Fath as Rex debates whether to give his beloved would-be wife's heart to a dying Clint. "I'm just really trying to look forward and not dwell on losing a job," Fath tells Soaps In Depth. "I've learned so much on OLTL, and I'm taking all of the things that I've learned with me."

Fath adds that the storyline twist that results from Gigi's demise may close the door for her alter ego, but it opens up many others for the characters still on the canvas. "It's going to be a great umbrella story. It's going to be a good thing."

And even after Gigi is taken off life support, OLTL viewers may not have seen the end of Fath just yet. "I can't say I'm 100-percent done," she teases.

A possible return for Dr. Greg Evans.

Terrell Tilford is busy playing Romeo to the ladies of Lifetime's new procedural "The Protector" these days, but the Daytime vet is hoping to make a grand return to Llanview before "One Life To Live" ends its run in January 2012. Can Greg get out of Statesville in time?

"I'd love to make a final appearance before it goes off, especially considering some of the stuff coming up story-wise with my little sister and all that," Tilford told Soaps.com. "We're talking about making it happen, so we'll see."

Tilford also shared his take on Daytime's newest cancellations. "This is probably not going to be the most popular opinion. I am sorry to see it go. At the same time, it was on for 40-plus years. Most things don't run that long. I was also on "Guiding Light," which was on for some 72 years. They have run their course, whether it's changing times or something else. [Daytime is] still an institution. Why we can't still have a happy medium? Instead, with more and more reality and talk shows, it's canceling out a medium. I try to encourage the fans: You won't forget your shows, but also, support your actors in the new shows that they move on to. They're opening up a new avenue. I hope I won't get slayed for that."

"The first people I always think about are the crew - those guys and women with families," Tilford adds. "Not just the lighting guys, but the florist, the delivery people. It's still very difficult losing a job, but I'm a believer in one door closes, another door opens. Every job I've been on, if the contract ends, people always say, 'Oh, I'm so sorry!' Don't be sorry for me. What's next? There's more out there."

Next up for Tilford is upholding the law, while flirting with Tisha Campbell-Martin on The Protector Sundays at 10.00 PM Eastern.

Don't expect Karen Wolek to make a return trip to Llanview, PA. before One Life to Live ends next January. According to sources, Judith Light recently declined an offer from the sudser to reprise the career-making role as the housewife hooker she played from 1977-1983.

I'm hearing this isn't the first time Light has turned OLTL down, despite always speaking fondly of her time on the serial in the press. Reportedly the brass wanted Light to appear as Karen for the soap's 40th anniversary back in 2008, but the Who's The Boss? and Ugly Betty star allegedly passed that time as well.

Here's hoping, with seven months left before the finale, TPTB will somehow be able to convince Light to change her mind. Watch a clip of Light as Karen Wolek on the stand after the jump!

Amanda Setton (Kim) returns

(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — As we first reported last night, thanks to a tweet from a "One Life to Live" crew member, it was looking as if Amanda Setton, who currently plays Penelope Shafai on "Gossip Girl," was making her way back to Llanview as the former stripper and Buchanan wife Kimberly Andrews. This afternoon, both Soap Opera Digest and ABC Soaps in Depth confirmed the news, stating that the actress was indeed returning to Llanview.

The tweet in question came from Julia Davis (of Julia Jovone Beauty), who has been a make-up artist on "OLTL" since October 2005. On June 13, she tweeted that she had "Just finished getting @amandasetton into character for 'One Life to Live.' Love her features."

"I am thrilled to be returning to 'One Life to Live.' I had such a great time working with everyone at 'OLTL' and I am looking forward to the trouble that Kim will get into once she is back in town," the actress said in a statement.

However, Setton's first airdate, as well as the length of her stay on "One Life," are unknown at this time. But with her taping scenes earlier this month, she should first appear on screen sometime in August.

Setton made her "One Life" debut as Kimberly Andrews on August 14, 2009. She left the role on April 2, 2010 after rejecting an offer by the show to place her on contract, in order to return to her primetime roots.

So what brings Kimberly back to Llanview? Revenge on David Vickers after he blackmailed her into leaving town? Looking to reunite with her sugar daddy Clint Buchanan? Or could it be something more? Here's your chance to sound off!

Possible return for Underwood and Tam

(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Jason Tam reveals on Twitter that both he and Brittany Underwood may be returning to "One Life to Live" as former lovebirds Markko Rivera and Langston Wilde before the show is scheduled to wrap production in November.

Tam was asked by a fan if there "Is any chance that Markko and Langston will make a return to Llanview BEFORE 'OLTL' ends?!?," to which the actor responded simply "You bet!" The response was short, but enough to give fans of both actors reason to hope that they may step foot in Llanview at least once more before the fictional soap town fades into daytime history. Underwood, meanwhile, has remained silent on the possible return to "One Life" on her Twitter page.

Brittany Underwood originated the role of Langston in in 2006. She exited the role on April 12 of this year after the show chose not to renew her contract. Tam joined the cast in the role of Markko in 2007, and left the show in November 2010 following a brief hiatus. He returned for two episodes in April to usher Underwood off the show.

Both characters are currently said to be in Los Angeles writing and directing the screenplay for David Vickers Buchanan's biopic "Vicker Man."
