    One Life to Live premiered in 1968, centering on the lives of the citizens of the fictional town of Llanview, PA. Concentrating on the wealthy Lord family, and the middle-class Woleks and Rileys, the show was one of the first daytime dramas to depict people from all sorts of backgrounds. The show was the first to depict an interracial relationship, and among the first to explore drug addiction. It has also depicted dissociative identity disorder, cultism, out-of-body experiences, international espionage, time travel, and even underground cities!

    Character Arc Synopsis

    As Danneel appeared in over 60 episodes, not every episode has a full synopsis. For this reason, a brief overview of the character and various storylines have been included below.

    Conniving Shannon McBain arrived in Llanview in early 2004. Her mother had died from a long illness and her father had abandoned the family during her mother’s aforementioned illness. Shannon was acting up at her college and rather than deal with expulsion, Shannon’s aunt Eve helped her get a transfer to Llanview University, where Shannon could spend time with her aunt and cousins. Shannon became infatuated with River Carpenter almost immediately, and tried to break up his teen-dream romance with his virtuous girlfriend Adriana. Shannon’s initial attempts went nowhere, so she teamed up with fellow schemer Rex Balsom, who lusted after Adriana. River enjoyed Shannon’s company, but they never got past a few makeout sessions before River reconnected to Adriana and then abruptly moved to New York City to study at Julliard. By this time Shannon was more interested in trying to seduce Rex.

    Due to failing a few classes, Shannon was forced to move in to a house with various other poor students (Marcie Walsh, Jen Rappaport, among others) and build a community center in order to get a passing grade. The community center was hit by a series of vandalisms, and all eyes fell on Shannon. While getting support from Rex (whom she was now having a fling with), and the trust of a few housemates like Marcie, she fought to clear her name. As Shannon stopped talking about the vandalism accusations, she was presumably cleared on the matter. Shannon tried to help Rex hide evidence in Paul Cramer’s murder, but left town shortly after without even telling her family where she was going. Her family had to find out from Rex.
