Viki was raped by her father - OLTL

Todd Manning is the Lord heir - OLTL

David Vickers is Bo's son - OLTL

Jessica was molested and had an alter - OLTL

The third one was pointless, stupid, and a great example of what a hack Ron Carlivati is. The other three basically destroyed OLTL.

Amanda is Alan's sister, not his daughter - GL

James Stenbeck is still alive, had a long lost son with Lucinda (even though he had never actually met her until she was well past her child-bearing years), ATWT

Oh chit, I thought this was the new title for GH.

Let me think of something and get back to you.

First and foremost the constant retcons of who Rex's parents were on OLTL. Did anyone really give a f-ck?

The same thing with John Black on DAYS.

I would love an OLTL fan to post a chronological write up of Viki's reasons for her D.I.D, Tina's paternity, Todd's paternity/maternity as it happened on the show.

Ethan's existence period bothers me and I'm talking about both Ethan Ashby on Y&R and Ethan Lovett on GH. Since they fixed it so that we found out one is jsut a complete liar and related to nobody important fix the other so he's related to nobody as well.

1. Greenlee being Jackson's daughter

2. Josh being Erica's unaborted fetus

3. Bianca being Michael Cambias's killer - the early scenes CLEARLY set up Erica being the killer and David helping her in some way, likely helping her dispose of the body.

no, he'd make Ethan related to no one. What a useless character

Days - John is a Brady/Dimera. I hate that and love that its barely been acknowledged since he came back

OLTL - Jessica was molested multiple times at a bar when she was younger and Clint/Viki suspected nothing

Todd (TSJ) was actually a brainwashed twin and the original was tucked away for EIGHT years

If he were smart he'd write it off as a bad con and have Ethan related to nobody.

Lol Cheap we posted basically the same responce at the same time

Girl I'm dm'ing you lol

Well yeah about Ethan, but I doubt they'll undo him completely so at least rewrite the rewrite and make him the son of RnH cause that makes sense
