TINA IS VICTOR LORD'S DAUGHTER, ONE LIFE TO LIVE
When Tina Clayton shook her booty into town hoping to unearth her father's identity, no one was prepared for the consequences. Dismissing her as a manipulative little tart, the Buchanan clan and their friends chose to deal with Ms. Clayton by verbally accusing her of being all kinds of slimy crawly things. But Tina persisted, and later revealed that her daddy dearest was none other than the honorable Victor Lord. The town was scandalized. Poor Viki, unable to bear the thought that her father was a lech, capable of seducing an innocent girl half his age, splintered in two. And even more shocking was the disclosure that Victor (partially redeeming himself) had married Tina's mother Irene. Much to Dorian's dismay, however, Victor had forgotten to get a divorce before marrying her. To put it simply, Victor was a bigamist!
THE REAPPEARANCE OF CAPITOL'S BAXTER MCCANDLESS
It was obvious from the beginning that Ron Harper's CAPITOL character wasn't who he said he was. Jarrett Morgan, indeed. But what was shocking was that the stranger in town turned out to be Baxter McCandless. And not just because McCandless had been dead for years. Baxter's sudden reappearance and gentle, blossoming friendship with Clarissa cleverly threw an effective wrench in her plans to marry Mark Denning, as well as wreaking havoc in the lives of just about every Clegg and McCandless from Washington to Atlantic City. Isn't that was soap opera is all about?
SOPHIA CAPWELL KILLED CHANNING, JR., SANTA BARBARA
One of the biggest surprises in 1985 came after it was discovered that Dominic was really Sophia Capwell in disguise. It was learned that Sophia had murdered her own son, Channing, Jr. But hold on, that's just the tip of the iceberg. It seems that SANTA BARBARA had their share of shocking twists last year! It was also discovered that C.C. Capwell had loaded the gun that killed Channing, thus making him an accomplice in his own son's murder. Wait. There's more. Channing turned out to be a homosexual and (here's the biggie), Channing wasn't even C.C.'s natural son, after all! He turned out to be the son of Sophia Capwell and Lionel Lockridge -- a product of their affair from years ago! Is it any wonder that immediately after learning all of this, C.C. collapsed from an aneurysm?
