I’ve been noticing for months that there’s been this good chemistry going on between One Life To Live‘s John McBain and Blair Cramer.
And now that they’re finally together, I’m liking what I’m seeing.
Now I don’t really know where this will go or how long it will last.
Let’s face it.
The two are…..well…..complicated at best.
They don’t have the best track records at relationships.
How many times has Blair (Kassie DePaiva) married Todd?
I think even the best OLTL statistician has lost count.
And John?
There was Natalie, which didn’t work out – twice.
Then Evangeline.
Then Marty.
Although, she doesn’t really count as a failed relationship because she died….although, not really, because we now know she is alive, but HE doesn’t know that……..yet.
The major theme in John’s doomed relationships is his failure to communicate his feelings….
And his demons.
Demons like the death of his fiancee, Caitlin, and the death of his father.
But I think he may have rid himself of those demons.
Which may have cleared the way for Blair.
Blair and John

I like them together.
And this is why.
Blair brings out the lighter side of John McBain, wearer of all things black.

How about that yellow Hawaiian shirt with Tucans on it?
Too Funny!
Only Blair could get him to put on that shirt.
And John?
Well, he’s been my favorite since he came to Llanview.
I just love the brooding, do-the-right-thing, Detective McBain.
And what I like about him is much more than those big blue bedroom eyes and his gorgeous good looks.
It’s his honesty, integrity and loyalty…..qualities that are rare and wonderful in this day and age.
I love the fact that amidst the chaos of Llanview, John McBain (Michael Easton) is the one constant you can count on when the chips are down.
And I’m wondering.
What’s going to happen when he finally finds out that Todd has deceived everyone and that Marty is alive?

Oh what a week on One Life To Live!
Let’s recap, shall we?
Marty dies in a fiery van explosion in Ireland as her son, Cole, and boyfriend, John McBain, watch.
After coming back to Llanview, Cole overhears McBain (Michael Easton) talking to FBI agent Ramsey and discovers that Ramsey shot the tires of the van that he and his mother were in, causing it to go off the road and ultimately explode.
Cole, who’s out of control in a rage, gets Ramsey’s gun and threatens to shoot him, but, instead, accidentally shoots Miles Laurence (David Chisum) in the chest.
Miles falls into the river and McBain struggles to find him, ultimately rescuing the man whom he hates.
Now, Miles is in the hospital, hanging onto life by a thread.
Cole is in hiding from the police.
And McBain tells Bo that he was the one who shot Miles.
First of all, the scenes where Cole (Brandon Buddy) had the gun trained on Ramsey were so powerful….I mean, you could just see the rage all over his face and through his body language. It was intense realization that this man had caused the death of his mother.
Buddy has been superb throughout the week in his emotional reaction to his mother’s death and the realization that he’s an orphan. (His father was already dead.)
I particularly enjoyed his scenes Wednesday with Brittany Underwood, who plays Langston.
Both of Langston’s parents had died more than a year ago – and she never told anyone until recently, when Dorian discovered the truth.
Now Langston and Cole have a common bond.
And their scenes together on Wednesday were so poignant.
After all, Langston has been there.
She knows how he’s feeling.
These two young actors were wonderful together as Langston tried to comfort Cole in his grief.
The intense pain.
The raw emotion.
Cole: How long do you feel like this? How long do you feel bad?
Langston: I haven’t stopped feeling bad. But it’s been over a year now and finally I don’t always wake up in the middle of the night and cry – only once in awhile. I can laugh again and think about the future.
So what’s in store for Cole’s future?
Not only is he dealing with his mother’s death, but now he has the guilt from shooting Miles.
Will he be prosecuted for the shooting or will McBain continue to take the blame?
