One Life to Live Recap: Ghost of a Chance


Todd: Yeah, I thought losing Tea was the worst thing that could happen to me. Try losing the kids.

Hearing Tea, Todd told John he heard a ghost. Todd groused about losing the few people who care about him, but John told him that the deaths of others weren’t meant as punishment for Todd. John alluded to Tea being alive, but warned Todd against losing it.

John told Todd about Tea and chronicled the entire story for a disbelieving and threatening Todd. John indicated that Tea was in the warehouse and Todd freaked. John and Todd created an opening in the rubble and pulled through a thankful Blair. Todd turned around and locked eyes with an emotional Tea.

Hearing muffled sounds, Tea yelled, but Blair covered Tea’s mouth. Tea tried to bite Blair, but Blair insisted that Tea’s “little voice [is] like a bullhorn.” Blair ordered an exhausted Tea to take a break, affirming to Tea that she would return to Dani. Blair realized that the warehouse was unstable and Tea began helping, not wanting to run out of time again.

Natalie began to get hysterical and grabbed at her stomach. Bo worried, but Nat explained that the baby had just moved for the first time. Natalie believed it was a sign that Hondo Jr. wanted John to be his father. Bo insisted on taking Natalie back to the station where she would be safe. Bo pledged that Nat would be his first call when John was found. Natalie hugged Bo tightly.

Brody, with Marty in tow, reassured a relieved Nora that Bo was fine. Nora noticed Marty’s handcuffs. Marty begged to call Cole, but Brody reminded Marty that she only gets one phone call and she should call a lawyer. Marty ignored Brody and confessed to Nora. Nora told her to shut up, asking for justification, but was disappointed and confused when Marty showed no remorse.

Nora was concerned as Bo, and a shaken Natalie, arrived at the station. Natalie went to work as Bo informed Nora that John was missing. Bo heard from the Fire Chief that the search was called off because the building imploded. Bo decided that he would continue the search himself, but Nora argued against him.
