Blair and Todd run into each other and Blair spills about Eli’s proposal. Todd tells her to go for it with Eli. Shortly after, Blair calls Eli but he doesn’t answer. She leaves him a message stating she has an answer to his question.

Eli doesn’t answer because he’s too busy trying to cover his tracks with Hannah. He even threatens Hannah if she doesn’t do what he says.

The happy couple celebrates their engagement and after Blair wants to tell Todd and Tea. She does and the four end up having an interesting conversation.

Will Tea give Todd the answer he wants?

Will Markko and Langston be able to work things out?

    Thanks for posting these spoilers. There is still no reason to watch this show…all the stories suck.

    I am curious to see if they kill off Evangeline after all this time.

    Gosh ya’ll almost make me feel bad for loving OLTL right now. I agree though how in the world do they expect us to believe Jessica Leccia had all those kids at the age of 15? But really I love OLTL I watch it over GH and Days.

    I am with Katie too. I am loving pretty much everything that this show is doing right now. I look forward to the show EVERYDAY, and I cannot say that about GH, YR, or Days.

    Another loyal Llanviewian here! I have to watch every day. Can’t say the same about AMC, which is mostly unwatchable for me. Even GH is skippable now and then. I love how RC connects all the s/l’s on OLTL. I’m NOT loving the reveal that Eli is a baddie, but I’m willing to keep watching to find out WHY he is and what he has against the Cramers. Very shocked that Inez is the Ford Brothers’ mom, but interested to see where that goes, and how Eli ties in to all of it, too. Hoping James and “Twinkle” (love that nickname!) give in to their feelings. I’m tired of Sole and would like to see them be “on a break” for a little while.

    Thanks for the spoilers, Melodie!

    Since we seem to be counting heads, here, count me among those who LOVES One Life To Live right now! It’s the only soap that interests me.

    Good lord…OLTL went downhill FAST after the musical. Where were you guys when the show was actually still good??

    It was good from August 2009-May 2010 but quickly turned to shit when Ford was bludgeoned/Jessica got her memories back, etc.

    I HATE when writers do this love of my life crap. Time and time again Todd choose BLAIR over tea now suddenly tea is the love of his life?? PUH-LEASE. The ONLY way I would buy this is if OLTL did the one story I really want to see. That Walker Lawrence was brainwashed into believing that he is todd manning but the real todd manning (played by Roger H) has been held captive all this time by Mitch Lawrence and his followers (that could explain Eli) Have the real Todd return to the love of HIS live Blair and leave faux Todd (aka Todd lite) with Tea.

    Hmm… Could Jessica and Natalie both be pregnant? And IF ;-) they are, who wants to bet a baby-switch storyline is in their future? :-D

    Oh, and count me in as enjoying OLTL. I enjoyed it BEFORE Oliver, Kyle, Schuyler, Rachel and Kim; I enjoyed it WITH Oliver, Kyle, Schuyler, Rachel and Kim; and I enjoy it now. It is very traditional in its sudsy storytelling. Not trying to reinvent the wheel. Or garner buzz with outrageous casting. Just telling extraordinary, yet interesting, stories about ordinary people.

    I don’t think it’ll be a baby-switch this time around. It’s likelier to be a double “who’s the daddy?”vaganza! Did Jess sleep with Ford or not? She certainly slept with Brody. Nat slept with Brody, but did she sleep with John? (I honestly can’t remember, since Nat and John make me doze off, as a couple.)

    “Going by the ratings, apparently not.”

    Agreed. While it’s nice that some people are enjoying the show, it’s obvious that OLTL’s current stories are alienating many viewers. I wouldn’t be surprised if the Ford/James/Nate/Inez/Eli insta-family contributes to OLTL’s inevitable cancellation.

    OLTL is off my DVR until I’m given a reason to tune back in. Which may be never, based on spoilers.

    I’d like to see them pair Starr with James; Cole is a complete bore and the actor playing him is constantly playing catch-up in his scenes with vastly superior actors(Susan Haskell, Kristin Alderson, Jason Tam, the girl who plays Hannah, etc.). I was SO hoping the twitter post about him leaving was true–damnit! I’m also warming to Ford ever-so-slightly; I still think he’s a smarmy douchebag but when he starts talking about his brother and family it ALMOST makes him slightly sympathetic.

    Also hate that they’ve done a Schuyler Joplin on Eli; I loved him and Blair together and now they’ve gone and ruined it.

    The other storyline I’m totally not feeling is the Dorian/David/Viki/Charlie bit; Tuc Watkins is gorgeous but I’ve find him to be about as convincing a straight romantic lead as Christian LeBlanc(gorgeous too, but really? I can’t be alone here). Plus, Charlie’s only interesting to me when he’s playing tortured; otherwise, BOR-ING.

    Finally, the best thing about this spoiler post? No Gigi.
