Monday’s episode of ‘One Life To Live’, or should I say “Fraternity Row” began:
Roxy having just fainted wakes up in ‘Fraternity Row’. She is Lorraine and married to Derwood who has been in “Eternity” all these years. They live in a mansion very similar to Llanfair and their maid and butler look exactly like Viki and Clint. They are at the top of their game using accents and Erika Slezak gets into her Gilda role with such vigor she is hysterical. Dash , who looks like Todd is Lorraine’s half brother and is suspected of being an imposter. Macy and Murphy , a crime fighting duo(Tea and Blair) think he is holding the real Dash somewhere. The logical thing to do is have a DNA test. Derwood brings up their son, Brandon, and is stunned to hear he’s Brianna’s brother. Lorraine accuses Derwood of cheating on her with Nigelia,( Nigel), who appears in tears. Nigelia thought she lost Derwood. “You cheated on me with this?” Lorraine asks. She can’t believe Nigelia kept Brianna’s paternity a secret. Gilda speaks up and accuses Lorraine of having an affair too. Gregor, the butler scolds his wife for revealing the truth. She holds her head in pain then confronts Derwood as another personality emerges, Matilda. Derwood wants her to tell him who Lorraine is cheating on him with.
John is Brandon and Natalie is Brianna. They listen while Norbert(Rick) tells the teens they are to clean up their behavior in the frat house or they are out. He tells Brianna she is in an incestuous relationship with Brandon . Brianna is upset that Brandon could be her brother and Brandon does not think it means much but suggests a DNA test. The girls accuse the boys of cheating on them. They deny it. The girls find a blonde hair and think Roxanne the slutty alter, is the one cheating with their boyfriends.
Murphy and Macy take Dash to a lab for the DNA test. They cannot keep their hands off of him.The lab tech(Vimal) is worried he will screw up the tests. Brandon and Brianna and the girls want DNA test too. He gives them the results, Dash is Dash, the slutty alter is cheatting on her boyfriend with herself and all the guys are cheating with Lorraine.
When the guys return to the dorm they all take off their shirts and Lorraine walks in and they all grab her.
A Shaun look alike with a scar is being held somewhere when Destiny as Irene Manning sits at her desk. She is upset about having to raise a baby alone. She pulls a gun and Shaun breaks free and a shot rings out.
Dash returns to the mansion saying he is the real Dash when the Shaun lookalike runs in and claims to be the real Dash. Lorraine comes in to hear they are twins. Irene comes in and claims that Lorraine was the ringleader. Matilda says Brianna is her child. She had twins but gave one to Nigelia. The girls rush in attacking Lorraine for sleeping with their boyfriends, when the boys rush in to save her. It all ends up in a riot with fists flying and Macy and Murphy trying to arrest Lorraine.
Roxy comes to, calling Derwood. David explains she was unconcious. He tells her he knows how much she loved ‘Fraternity Row’ , but it is over now.
In a scene all too real to the ‘OLTL’ family, Roxy and David walk out of the dark, empty studio.
The One Life to Live actors show themselves to be good sports. playing their characters in an exagerrated and comical portrayal. Each and every one of them will be missed by their heartbroken fans.
Once again Ron Carlivati and the writer’s show themselves to be on top of the news of the day. Unfortunatley the news is not good, but the show as always is..
