To be completely honest, One Life to Live has become my least favorite of the ABC daytime soaps. I have been so bored with it lately that my nap time is normally between 2 and 3 pm. These are just a few suggestions that I have to make Llanview a more interesting place.
Who killed Spencer Truman??? We know who did NOT do it---David, Dorian, and Blair. Those are the only three I am sure of, anyway. But who DID kill the evil doctor? Saving the big reveal for May sweeps is probably a good idea, but the investigation hasn't even been mentioned recently. We only hear about Spencer when Miles is talking or while Todd and Blair are discussing the search for TJ. Are the Llanview police capable of investigationg only one crime at a time?
The one crime they seem to be stuck on right now is the rash of arsons in the area. Who is setting fire to vacant businesses? I don't care! My interest in this story was only slightly heightened when Nora and Matthew were caught in a fire in their home. This story is dull and I am so looking forward to its conclusion.
When Jessica was finally integrated, I thought the whole Nash/Jess/Antonio thing would be over. No such luck. Now we have Jessica married to Antonio but suddenly in love with Nash, the man her alter had a baby with. I don't buy this love story at all. Never did. While Claudia was in town, I was relaly rooting for her to get back with Nash. Antonio and Jessica deserve a little happiness, even if it is only for a month or so, before problems arise. And now Jamie has witnessed her step-mommy and Nash kissing, and ran out of the apartment and into on-coming traffic when she heard Antonio and Jessica fighting. Let me tell you, if that little girl does not survive, I will be done with this show.
Why can't Rex and Adrianna catch a break? They are in love, and when they were finally able to admit it, her mother hired a stalker to break them up. Now we have Tate Harmon, an arrogant former pitcher, getting in the way. Good looking? OK, maybe Tate is. But he is rude and selfish. The way he declared his love on national TV was just wrong. He knows that Adrianna is with Rex and she has told him that she is uninterested. Tate needs to get over himself and find a girl who wants him. What about Layla? Last I looked, she was single still.
