Unlike with All My Children where a closed-ended finale was reportedly taped, One Life to Live's head writer Ron Carlivati was instructed by Prospect Park—the company that licensed the ABC soaps with plans to take them online—to pen several open-ended storylines in preparation for the soap's move online.  The scribe tells Soap Opera Digest (on newstands now)there is no way to go back and edit the finale, or shoot new footage to give fan's closure.

"It's impossible. There is no reshooting of anything at this point."




You would think Disney-ABC would at least have the decency to produce a pair of 90-minute All My Children and One Life to Live reunion movies to give the fans closure for these storied shows that financed ABC's primetime pilot development for decades, while entertaining millions of fans and training generations of Hollywood A-listers. But then again, that would be too much like right.
