There’s lots going on in Llanview these days.
I mean LOTS!
And there’s some heavy-duty questions that are hanging in the air on One Life To Live.
For instance….
What’s going to happen to Marcie, now that she’s in jail for babynapping?
And Gigi.
What’s going to happen to her now that she’s been arrested for aiding and abetting Marcie?
Will Adrianna and Rex also be arrested for keeping the secret that TJ/Tommy/Sam is really Todd’s kidnapped son?
And that sleazy FBI agent Lee Ramsey. He keeps threatening Gigi and her son, Shane.
What is the always chivalrous John McBain going to do to stop Ramsey?
And speaking of Shane.
Who exactly is his father?
Is it Rex?
They’re alluding to that scenario since Gigi Morasco (Farah Fath) and Rex Balsom (John-Paul Lavoisier) were high school sweethearts and haven’t seen each other since. We now know that Gigi left Michigan shortly after Rex – Gigi going to Paris, Texas and Rex to Llanview.
I seem to remember awhile back that Gigi told Viki she hadn’t dated anyone since she was with Shane’s father — but she’s never, ever mentioned the father’s name and the guy is supposedly dead.
Perhaps the most intriguing question on OLTL is the mystery surrounding Rex’s father.
Rex’s mom, Roxy, and his aunt, Corinne, who raised Rex, are keeping some kind of family secret and it may have to do with who is Rex’s father. After all, on Friday Corinne said she’s not sure if Rex is a Balsom.
There is some speculation on message boards that Roxy was raped by the evil Mitch Laurence and that Rex is Mitch’s kid.
Again, it’s just speculation.
But that would be an interesting twist….That would mean that Rex and Jessica would really be brother and sister, when Jessica’s twin, Natalie, was raised as Rex’s sister….Of course it was later discovered that Allison Perkins stole Natalie for Mitch Laurence and gave her to Roxy to raise.
Whether or not Rex is Mitch’s son, remains to be seen.
But it is awfully coincidental that crazy Allison shows up Friday, after being gone from the canvas for a few years.
When she sees Jessica at St. Ann’s, the local mental institution, Allison tells Jessica that she has a secret.
Hmmmm….could it be about Rex?

    That would be a VERY interesting twist!
    It would give Rex more ties in town & would give Miles some family as well. Maybe Miles will soften towards Roxy a little if this happened.
    And Rox did tell Miles recently that his brother Mitch was a monster .. of course anybody who experienced Mitch Lawrence or was around during any one of his reigns of terror could easily make that claim.
    Hmm, I like these possibilities that’s for sure!

    Hi Kimi,
    The jury’s still out on whether or not that’s a viable scenario or just speculation. I think there may be some kind of a Mitch Laurence secret, because crazy Allison is back and she mentioned her secret again yesterday to Jessica.
    It would be interesting, though, because it would give Rex more ties to Llanview.
