One Life to Live Recap: My Problem Is You


Clint: You’re declining my offer?

Clint wants Inez to sleep with Bo, and she’s horrified to realize that Clint’s serious. Bo destroyed Clint’s marriage to Nora, and Clint wants to return the favor. Clint believes that Inez wants Bo, and this plan will get her what she desires, but Inez adamantly insists that she has no interest in Bo. Clint threatens to rescind all of his favors. Clint thinks that Bo and Nora are ripe for an interloper and, believing Bo to be as jaded as Clint is and not forgetful of Nora’s past infidelity, Clint insists that seducing Bo will be easy. Inez refuses to take part in Clint’s scheme, regretting that she ever met him.

Eddie sits, handcuffed, in Bo’s office, threatening to sue the police department until Bo silences him with tape. Nora enters and takes issue with Bo’s illegal tactics. Eddie demeans Nora and when Bo defends her, Eddie realizes that Nora is Bo’s wife. Eddie vulgarly compliments Nora, and Nora stops Bo from attacking Eddie. As a uniform ushers out Eddie, Eddie makes a pass at Nora and also warns her about Inez. Nora believes that Eddie makes a good point: Inez is the perfect victim.

Bo thinks Eddie is abusive and vile, and he promises to find something that will stick. Nora points out that it’s not Bo’s job to watch Eddie, and Bo is going above and beyond because Inez has manipulated Bo out of desire. Nora is upset that their entire life is “all Inez, all the time,” and Nora doesn’t think it’s a bad idea when Bo mentions firing Inez.

Inez encounters Eddie in the squadroom. She blasts him for attacking James and vows that the boys will be safe with her from now on. Eddie taunts Inez about Bo, indicating that a rift between Bo & Nora has been created, thanks to Inez.

Bo is a hero, and although that’s something that Nora loves about him, she knows that it’s his greatest weakness and one that can and will be exploited. Still irritated, Nora is going to handle Eddie’s arraignment personally so that “we can all rescue Inez!” Inez overhears and, after Nora storms off, Inez enters Bo’s office. She has to tell him something.
