The "Death" of John McBain
Just when Natalie and John finally make peace with their past and their anxieties about a long-lasting relationship, an automobile accident ruins everything. After Bo and John's brother, Michael, receive the news of the crash, they finally arrive at the crash site. Apparently, there is a badly, burned body, with John's police badge lying next to it. When Michael finds the St. Jude's medal with the corpse, he and Bo assume it is John. Well, as previously stated in another post on my blog, Michael Easton, who portrays John McBain, just re-signed his contract with "One Life to Live." What this means, is that John's character may not be dead. Furthermore, I think I saw an upcoming episode, where John is still alive, while his family, friends, and co-workers mourn for and bury someone else. This is quite typical for a soap opera. Often, characters are presumed dead, while their loved ones mourn, move on with their lives, and end up falling in love or starting relationships with other people. Then, a few months or years later, the "dead" person suddenly resurfaces, with the attitude, "Hello, honey, I'm home!"
