One Life to Live is dangling quite the dilemma in front of us these days. Jessica and Nash have had a "moment." Let's not forget that they were once hot and heavy lovers when Jessica was manifesting as Tess. Naturally, there are feelings there. The dilemma for Jessica is should she come clean to Antonio and tell him about her indescretion?
At the same time, Evangeline also strayed when she kissed Todd, albeit in compassion as she explained to Cristian. But she still kissed Todd. Feeling totally guilty about her actions, she discusses the situation with Layla who strongly advises her NOT to reveal the kiss to Cristian. But Evangeline disregards her sister's advice and does tell Cristian that she kissed Todd. Naturally, he is livid. He accuses her of cheating on him, even though she maintains that it was not a romantic kiss in any way, shape or form. Yet, when Cristain asks if she backed away, or tried to prevent Todd from seeing the kiss through, she is at a loss for words because she did nothing to stop Todd.
One Life to Live is putting forth the old "damned if you do, damned if you don't" scenario.
If you tell your loved one that you strayed, even if it was very misguided and would never happen again, what are you doing in essence? You are relieving yourself of the guilt of the indescretion, but you're hurting your partner and making them angry with you.
If you don't tell your loved one about a one-time fling, you are preserving your relationship, while you live with your guilt, but what happens if they find out anyway? Odds are they might and how do you think that will make them feel? Pretty bad, right?
Right! So what do you do? What will Jessica do? Will she finally come clean to Antonio? What would you do?
