Wednesday’s episode opened with Dorian (Robin Strasser) watching a video of herself resigning as the senator from Pennsylvania. She started talking to herself, and said she didn’t approve of the message. Then, she pulled off her wig.
Hurricane Dani (Kelley Missal) burst into Matthew (Robert Gorrie) and Jeffrey’s (Corbin Bleu) apartment, and proceeded to give herself a tour. When she discovered they had a third bedroom, she suggested it would be perfect for her to move in. I have to say, I like this version of Dani much better than the one pre-TOLN. READ MORE

Soap opera's grandest dame is ready for her second act. I recently caught up with six-time Daytime Emmy winner Erika Slezak to discuss the return of her beloved One Life to Live. How is television's—and soon-to-be the Internet's—Viki Lord dealing with her second life to live? After Prospect Park's first attempt to reboot the sudser fell through, what made Slezak sign on for a second time?
She answers those questions, as well as providing insight into what her legendary father, Walter Slezak, would make of soaps on the web. Slezak also goes into detail on why she feels Brian Frons isn't responsible for OLTL and All My Children being cancelled by Disney-ABC.
Daytime Confidential: How does it feel to slip back into the role of Viki?
Erika Slezak: I’m very excited. After the whole thing kind of fell apart almost two years ago, we thought, “Oh boy, what a shame.” Because it was such a good idea.
