Hey all you One Life to Live fans: Don't forget, this week and next there will be plenty of excitement. In celebration of the show's 10,000th episode, there will be mention of the number 10,000 in every show between July 30 and Aug. 10, as well as temporary homecoming of many fan-favorite characters.

James DePaiva (Max Holden), Nathan Fillion (Joey Buchanan), Dan Gauthier (Kevin Buchanan), John Loprieno (Cord Roberts) and Tonja Walker (Alex Olanov) all will be reprising their roles as they come back to Llanview to celebrate the life of patriarch Asa Buchanan (Phil Carey), who was killed off earlier this year. As many of you know, contract talks failed to resolve the differences between what the show wanted from Carey and what Carey wanted from the show. OLTL honchos wanted the character of Asa to be downgraded to recurring and Carey wanted to remain a contract player. The show refused, so Carey left. His last appearance was on April 26, 2007.

OLTL will officially hit the 10,000 mark on Friday, Aug. 17.
