Despite being the home of jealousy, betrayal, and the occasional baby-swapping, Llanview, Pennsylvania is where the Buchanan, Lord, and Cramer families struggle to retain the strong family ties that have always united them. Erika Slezak portrays the town matriarch, Viki Lord Davidson, who's constantly at odds with longtime nemesis Dorian (Robin Strasser). The tempestuous relationship between Blair Cramer and Todd Manning (Kassie DePaiva and Trevor St. John), the continuing saga of Rex and Gigi, (John-Paul Lavoisier and Farah Fath) and the electricity of young couple Starr and Cole (Kristen Alderson and Brandon Buddy) help complete the multi-generational and faceted cast.
