Could Clint Get Matthew's Heart on OLTL?



DAMN!  One Life to Live’s Bo (Robert S. Woods) and Nora (Hillary B. Smith) can’t catch a break. TV Guide’s Michael Logan reveals, in his new interview with Woods and Smith, that  “On May 23, Matthew will collapse and, later, he's diagnosed as being very nearly brain-dead. Then comes word that Bo's brother Clint (Jerry verDorn) needs a new heart or he will die. You can see where this plot might go.”

During the interview with Woods and Smith, he asks the popular actors to weigh in on the decisions facing their characters.


TV Guide Magazine: And then, suddenly, both Matthew and Clint are dying.

Smith: Things get so bad that Bo and Nora actually set aside the murder — their minds just can't handle that much. Decisions need to be made about Matthew. They're told he has minimal brain activity just as Clint's condition is suddenly worse. They're being jerked around from one tragedy to another. It's too, too much. Matthew's getting worse. Clint's getting worse. All they need now is a tornado to hit Llanview.

Woods: And Bo has horrible guilt, feeling responsible for causing Clint's heart attack. But at the same time, Bo wants him behind bars, paying for what he's done. Yet here's Clint barely fighting for his life. It's pretty complicated stuff.

She also did the Gillian/Laura story on AMC.

******************

I HATED, absolutely HATED that AMC storyline! I remember it like it was yesterday, Ryan finding Gillian in that room, and placing his hand on her face, then taking her hand, thinking she's sleeping but not feeling a pulse, and then placing his hand on the back of her head and finding the blood on his hands, and realizing she had been shot in that whole stupid mistaken identity crap, and then they had her walking around like an effing ghost for I don't know how long. I was 16 years old and bawled like a baby when it happened. I LOVED Gillian, she was the only woman I tolerated Ryan with (besides early days Kendall) before he won Pine Valley’s Douchebag of the Millennium Award, and they gave her heart to that Laura, who I absolutely abhorred! Her so called love for Leo when he was in love with Greenlee made me ill because I was a HUGE GreenLeo fan back then (they belong together, no matter what FRONS thinks) and I felt that whole storyline was a complete waste of my life!

But like already mentioned--cause it MUST be said again--no matter the outcome of Matthew, Jean Passanante's STANK is INDEED written ALL over it! She's a joke, and don't EVEN get me started on Reid's death either. That entire storyline was convoluted and TOTALLY unnecessary!

Everything that sucks about OLTL is the fault of anyone besides Frank V. and Ron Carlivati. OK...

I hope they don't kill off Matthew. If they want to kill someone, they could kill Nate. I don't give a crap about him.

I don't understand why they would do this so close to the end... why not let that family have a happy ending?!?!?

There were Rumors Of Recasting another One Of The Younger set. Maybe it was Matthew

Maybe he was supposed to be in a coma and sent somewhere and after a feew months wake up as a different actor

If that was the case. Do the coma but have matt wake up and still be EA

well, not everything that sucks, but I blame Jean for the recycled bullshit she carries from show to show and it is indeed, recycled bullshit.

There's plenty I could blame Ron and Frank for, but refrain because I enjoy the show more often than not. I already complain enough about the other shows--especially GH because it was my heart for YEARS--and would like to keep one where I’m not bitching for the most part. I could give a laundry list of things I don’t like or wish would change, from “chosen characters” to storylines to dialog to certain character degradaton to rearranging history to suit current plot--like Dani’s entire existence, she just shouldn’t be around for many reasons, nor should they have EVER made her "Todd's" child, and I’ve ALWAYS thought so--to the little things only long time fans would notice; I’ve watched OLTL for as long as I have GH, little over 20 years, since I was a kid. But this Matthew/Clint storyline sticks out like a sore thumb because she’s done it on two other shows, and I witnessed them both. Just because I love the show doesn't mean I'm blind to the flaws....

This is one those rumours I hate.
A friend of mine pointed out to me that Brian Frons has never liked Eddie Alderson's 'cause he doesn't fit with the typical "sexy teen" sterotype. IThis has his hnads all over it.

Are you kidding me???
I can't stand the character of Matthew but why write such a hearbreaking and stupid S/L when you've only got a couple months left of screentime...why write the heartbreak of loosing a son and the monster of the town getting to live?

Gee guess that's a way to get out of the murder charges he's facing.
and where in the world would this S/L come from...Matthew has been acting fine...it's not like he's sick and the poof in a week he's going to be brain dead...that makes no sense and that is stupid S/L to begin with...if your show is ending don't mess it up by doing something like this...focus on giving everyone a happy ending...sigh.

Whe I originally saw this in TV Guide, I freaked out...then I re-read the "nearly dead" line again and have hope that he will live. It'd be a shame if OLTL pissed me off by killing Matthew just as Roger Howarth comes back!!
Hope Clint gets Marty's heart instead....I think that's the path they are heading down with her character.

Because of the uber popularity of the Ford Brothers (gag me with a spoon!) there were rumors a few months ago that OLTL wanted to replace EA with a hunky hair model actor and RSW and HBS spoke up to keep EA on the show. Since OLTL tapes so far in advance there is no telling when the rumors started to replace EA.

In the summer of 2009, the rumor that Guiding Light was killing off Phillip at the end freaked fans out just like this rumor is doing. My suggestion is to not assume anything and just see what happens. There are plenty of ways this could play out. Personally, I hope OLTL breaks their butts to keep it all a secret rather than giving it all away in advance and calling it a "preview."

I don't think Clint deserves anyone's heart.

I am so with you on this. I was so pissed off at the Reid/Chris bullshit she called a storyline that I wouldn't watch the last couple of weeks either. I can't BELIEVE someone actually hired her to write for them again, and unfortunately for us and OLTL, that's where she is. This is her third time with the heart transplant storyline - the woman is a hack!

It Jean Passante. She did it with ATWT, why not do it with OLTL. I couldn't BELIEVE they would kill off as popular a character as Reid Oliver all in the name of character arc, but they did, right before the show ended. It was shit and apparently it's shit being recycled if indeed the rumors are true.

Matthew had sex. It's all so clear now! He's a goner! They let him have sex once before he dies. Hopefully, Matthew's spirit (Eddie, of course) will be around for the finale. He deserves to be a part of the end of the show in some form or another.

Thinking about all the alternatives keeps my heart breaking. Being the youngest one in the room doesn't mean you will outlive the older folks surrounding you. Ghost Ghost
