We love Viki (Erika Slezak) and Charlie (Brian Kerwin) on "One Life to Live." Despite them making moon eyes at each other all the time (and Viki always using "grateful" and "Charlie" in the same sentence ... a sure sign she's into someone), they're not together. But why? And what do you think?
OK, so the couple met in a diner in Paris, Texas where, naturally, Viki was working as a waitress. He was recovering alcoholic and she was an eight-time divorcee. What could possibly go wrong?
As a matter of fact, everything went right! They were falling madly in love with each other and both had occasion to head back to Llanview. Here's where things get tricky. Seems Charlie had to lie about a few things. First, he discovers his son Jared is pulling a fast one on the Buchanans. But out of familial loyalty, he keeps his mouth shut. Then, to make matters worse, he lies AGAIN by claiming to be Rex's father.
The proverbial poo hit the fan when Jared's scheme was to bilk the Buchanans was exposed. Jared accidentally killed Viki's son-in-law Nash after Nash attacked him and unintentionally plunged through a skylight. Viki learned that Charlie knew about all this beforehand and didn't come clean. She says she can't be with someone who lies.
