Funniest Moment: Sometimes, it's a well-placed reference to the show's history that gets us chuckling. And other times, it's when terribly dire events are undercut with humor that elicits a laugh. This week on One Life to Live, Starr Manning gave us both. When talking about John McBain and his role in rescuing her mom from Evil Eli, she said -- in a fairly brilliant deadpan -- "At one point or another, he's saved the lives of everybody I care about." That's kind of true. The question is, why has everyone Starr cares about been in mortal danger at some point or another?
WTH? Moment: Brody and Ford's fist-fight -- if you can even call something so one-sided a "fight" -- was notable for many reasons. It paid off the weeks-long tension surrounding Jessica's paternity secret. It was a pretty excellent release for Brody, who's had a lot on his mind lately. And, much as we love Ford, he's kind of had a beatdown like this coming. (Of course, he's already been pummeled nearly to death once, by Eli. Maybe we give Bobby Ford a break for a while, huh?) The WTH element -- and an appreciative WTH at that -- was in the way Ford took Brody's punches. Not since Glass Joe from Mike Tyson's Punch-Out has a man sold a pummeling so convincingly!
Best Moment: Cole laid it on the line for James in plain English: leave Starr alone. He's been saying this for weeks now, but this week felt different. This wasn't the same puffed-up posturing or bitchy sniping. Cole was speaking from the heart in defense of his relationship and his family. We're really into James and Starr right now, but Cole made his case and he made it well. And as Starr and Cole have been doing for years on this show, it made teen relationships feel real and important and on the same level as the adults.
