Were you all wiping your eyes after watching Tuesday’s One Life To Live?

Soooo many good performances……

Where to start….

First of all, Mark Lawson, as Brody, was phenomenal throughout the past few days…particularly on Tuesday when he was talking to Jessica (Bree Williamson) about how he wants a family with her.

He was crying…..she was crying……I was crying….

I tell ya, Lawson and Williamson together are dynamic.

But most of all they make us really feel what they are feeling.

I have to say that I was a liiiiitle nervous that Tess or Bess would emerge to “rescue” Jess from an emotional situation. Jess was looking a bit unhinged there for a few minutes, but so far – and hopefully – she will remain integrated.

And more kudos to Lawson on his action scenes in the warehouse – gripping!

Certainly the saddest event of Tuesday – and the most shocking – was the news that Shaun (Sean Ringgold) is comatose from the effects of the brain surgery to remove a bullet fragment.

To complicate matters (and in soaps everything is complicated) his brother Greg (Terrell Tilford) performed the surgery, being the best and most qualified in Llanview Hospital.

When Greg had to tell his parents and Destiny that Shaun was not waking up……so moving.

Tilford really showed his depth with those scenes – and then in his later scenes when he totally broke down…..He has shown such a transformation of his character over the past few weeks…..

And Tuesday, Greg experienced a 180 degree turnaround from the cocky, self-absorbed doctor who stepped into Llanview a few months ago.

Daphne Duplaix as Rachel also delivered such good performances over the past few weeks as she wrestled with her feelings about Greg and Shaun, culminating in the realization of Shaun’s fate and Greg’s feelings of guilt.

Duplaix is a very real actress who makes you believe what she is saying and feeling.

Another really good performance from the younger set – Shenell Edmonds as Destiny.

She totally broke my heart when Destiny realized that Shaun was not waking up.

Here are some of the better scenes of Tuesday’s OLTL, including Jess and Brody towards the end.

On the up side: Starr, Hope and Cole were reunited.

Kristin Alderson has been incredible throughout the whole hostage thing and Brandon Buddy has been wonderful in the undercover storyline.

So for all you Sole fans out there, here’s a compilation of their scenes in the video below.

And be sure to check out the montage at the end of the video, which puts to music an overview of all the characters highlights from Tuesday’s eppy.
