One Life To Live Writer Reacts to Controversial Story Line

by at . Comments

Numerous One Life To Live viewers are unsure how to react to the story line that has Todd cozying up to amnesiac Marty, the woman he raped?

"I understand the initial impulse," Head Writer Ron Carlivati told Soap Opera Digest. "The goal is to more to take these two characters who have an unbelievable, dark history with each other and explore where we could go if they didn't have that obstacle — the rape — between them."

It's touchy territory. Do you think One Life to Live should go there?
