There have been so many good things happening on OLTL and so many good acting performances that I don’t even know where to begin.
Let me start with the baby switch reveal and Bree Williamson’s powerful performances.
She swept me along for the ride through all three of her personalities (Jess/TessBess) and, especially, her emotions when Jess finally faced that Bess had switched her dead baby with Starr’s live one and the impact to all involved.
Whether Williamson is feeling happy or sad as Jessica, she is always so real and she makes me feel every range of emotion along with Jessica.
And she does this time after time after time – consistent, strong performances.
I also love the Jess/Brody pairing.
Mark Lawson as Brody also has delivered time and again – particularly those scenes when he was comforting Jessica near the empty baby’s crib after Chloe – now Hope – had been given back to Starr.

Then there’s Kristen Alderson as Starr and Brandon Buddy as Cole.
Kudos to both these young actors for their performances when they discover their baby, Hope, who they believed to be dead was really alive.
They, too, took me through their range of emotions….from despair at the death of the baby, to their detective work in trying to find out the cause of death and finally to the elation that their baby was alive!
Starr and Cole reuniting with their baby was one big – awwwwww…..Followed by sadness, once again, when they gave Hope to Marcie and Michael McBain (Kathy Brier and Chris Stack) as promised.
But wait!
Marcie later overheard Langston telling Markko that it broke Starr’s heart to give up her baby and Marcie gave Hope back to Starr!
Elation once again for Starr ……
That is, until she finds out that Cole violated his probation by trying to throw away pills put in his pocket by his former drug dealer when – at that very moment – a cop came by and caught him with the drugs in his hand.
So now, they have their baby back and could be one big happy family…But, oh no, now Cole has to go to prison for two years. Grrrrrrr.

How much more of a rollercoaster of emotion can there be?
One more.
Cole proposed to Starr. She accepted. AND Todd gave his permission! Will miracles never cease?
I was sad to see Brier and Stack leave OLTL, but loved their final scene when Marcie discovers she’s pregnant.
At least that leaves the door open for their return to Llanview.
Another source of my viewing pleasure is T&B – and I don’t mean Todd and Blair.
I mean Tea and Blair…..
I love those two together.
Florencia Lozano as Tea and Kassie DePavia as Blair are so-o-o enjoyable to watch.
Talk about range of emotions.
Those two go from fighting like cats and dogs to bonding over their feelings for Todd.

Remember what happens in the boiler room stays in the boiler room?
Those two are really funny together!
They ratted each other out in heartbeat in court.
And just what secret has Tea never told a single person???
My guess is that she has Todd’s secret love child.
But that’s just a guess.
Now, the only secret left to come out is the fact that Gigi (Farah Fath) did not cheat on Rex (Jean-Paul Lavoisier) and that her sleazy, skanky sister Stacy was not Shane’s bone marrow donor – And that Stacy was blackmailing Gigi to break up with Rex or Stacy (Crystal Hunt) would not save her own nephew.
Well, at least Gigi and Skylar (Scott Clifton) finally found out the truth….
Now they have to find the last puzzle piece – who the REAL donor is.
Let’s hope this happens before stripper Stacy seduces Rex.
I cannot WAIT until Rex finds out the truth.
And then it’s Buh-Bye Stacy and hello Gigi-Rex reunion.
We can only hope.
