The ABC soap, “One Life To Live” was a sizzling story about town matriarch Viki Lord’s and the many citizens. From the start, the action in Llanview, Pa., has centered around newspaper publisher, university president, former mayor and sometime waitress and oft-married Viki Lord Riley Buchanan Buchanan Carpenter Davidson Banks, the rock of the town despite her multiple personality disorder.
Her portrayer, Erika Slezak, who was playing Desdemona in Buffalo, N.Y., when she got the role in 1971, took one last curtain call Thursday at a tribute to the show on “The View,” which airs today. And in an interview in her dressing room before the taping, she teared up a few times as she talked about leaving Llanview.
I’m starting off my new year by having an identity crisis. Once upon a time, I thought I knew exactly who I was, namely a redneck with eclectic tastes. And, no, Eclectic ain’t just a town in Alabama.
I wish I could state that definitively who I am. Maybe you can’t either, or you think you’d just confuse other people if you tried to explain yourself. I’ll tell you about my multiple personalities, and perhaps you’ll feel better if you’re an odd duck like me.
At my funeral, I want passages read from Shakespeare, John Keats, John Donne, and Habakkuk 3: 17-19 (my life verses). I also want the music to include “Old Rugged Cross,” Johnny Cash’s “Ain’t No Grave Gonna Hold My Body Down,” Schubert’s “Ave Maria;” and Mozart’s “Requiem.” And don’t forget the usual “Amazing Grace.”
OK. This has been about me, me, me. But here’s my point. I think most of us would have difficulty answering the-who-am-I question. Or am I the only one who finds it hard to wear a label? Should we even be limited by labels?
An extraordinary scene depicts Lyssa's dragon surfacing and speaking with Eddie. It is like a dissociative identity disorder: Lyssa exists with a separate distinct being inside. Like Eddie, Lyssa lives with grief because of personal loss, and she is terrified of her power. Lyssa also has pyrokinetic abilities, but there is far more to this heroine's story.
Even after Eddie breaches her defenses, slowly wheedling his way into her life, she is determined to protect him from a looming showdown with the Cruor Venator — and what is buried inside her. The loneliness and sadness of both these characters radiate from the pages in waves. What I liked about their relationship is that it is developed very slowly over the course of the story, a "slow burn" in more ways than one.
Liu doesn't hold back from exposing the dark underbelly of society, incorporating serious social problems such as homelessness, spousal and child abuse and prejudice in what proves to be a gripping multilayered tale. Be forewarned, Within the Flames has its share of violence and grisly kill scenes, but I have to say I felt no remorse when the bad guys got their due. This is a creative, emotional tale.
