One Life To Live (OLTL) was a popular soap opera that ran from 1968 to early 2012. The soap was reprised for a few months in 2013 when it hit the web through iTunes and Hulu, but officially went off the air in August of that year due to a lawsuit involving Prospect Park. Alas, even after all these years, there are still some OLTL fans still missing their favorite soap, with unforgettable storylines, rivalries, adventures and couples. Despite this, there are a few Llanview characters and couples we wish we could forget. Below are seven of the worst OLTL couples in the show’s history.
7. Charlie Banks and Echo DiSavoy
After 27 years of absence, Echo DiSavoy stormed back into Llanview with nothing but trouble on her mind. While it was nice to see veteran soap opera actress Kim Zimmer on OLTL, the affair she engaged in with Charlie Banks was a horrible watch from the get-go. It’s never a good thing to see a manipulator win over a decent guy, and when these two hooked up in 2011 fans had to endure this terrible coupling for months. Echo successfully tore Viki and Charlie’s marriage apart; however, thankfully Charlie learned the truth about Echo’s paternity lies and ditched her by the year’s end. The only sad part was, with his relationships to Viki (and Echo) behind him, Banks left Llanview and headed back to Texas shortly after the storyline ended.
