One Life To Live's Jamie, Sweetiepie, Saoirse Scott

Again my heart is bursting and One Life To Live's Jamie, portrayed by sweetiepie Saoirse* Scott is the reason. She has such a sweet voice, she's beautiful, bright and can melt your heart like a marshmallow in a microwave with just one bat of an eyelash.

Recently Jamie's storyline has been on the OLTL frontburner. Her stepmom Jessica was supposed to legally adopt her, but at the 11th hour had a fit of conscience primarily because she's been cheating on her husband Antonio [Jamie's papi] and bolted from the courthouse leaving poor Jamie confused and in tears. Anyone who's been following the show recently would have to agree that Jessica did the right thing by not officially becoming the mom [can you say unstable parent?], but man, her timing on coming to that decision could not have possibly been worse. Even though Jamie was traumatized, she was a real little trouper having heart to hearts with her papi, her abuela Carlotta, her grandpa RJ Gannon,
and flakey stepmom Jessica. The best recent scene was when she told her papi that
"Jessica is sorry about the court and the kissing."
It would have been more of a BAM! moment were it not for the fact that "detective" Antonio is completely clueless to the fact that wifey has been unfaithful for weeks. O.K. in fairness to the character i shouldn't say completely clueless because he has suspected something was up with Jessica, but for him not to know that not only has she been cheating but that she's been doing it for weeks with Nash, the biological father of Jessica's psychological alter Tess' daughter Bree/Brennan [wow was that exposition convoluted or what :-) but it's accurate yes?:-)], doesn't say much about his powers of deductive reasoning.

Just as Jessica is about to come clean, the baby overhears her parents arguing and she runs out of the house and into oncoming traffic. Nash and her uncle Cristian witness the accident. Nash has just told Cristian that Jessica was having "the talk" with Antonio just before the accident happens. Nash rushes upstairs to tell Antonio and Jessica about the accident just as she is about to spill her guts.

Jamie is rushed to the hospital, the diagnosis is fluid on the brain, but the doctors expect her to pull through with no permanent brain damage. An anguished Antonio is comforted by Jessica at Jamie's bedside while a pining Nash looks on.

Later, when Jessica is called away to work, friend and Llanview Detective John McBain, and Jamie's aunt Natalie come to visit at the hospital. Jamie awakes and asks where's Jessica?

Nash has followed her to her job, and soon after the only business going on is strictly of the monkey variety.
