happened to Asa’s ex-wife. The one who had the Egyptian wedding?
I missed a few months and never knew what happened to her.
The last time I saw her, Carlo Hesser was watching her through a two-way
Olonov, played by Tonja Walker, became mayor of Llanview and married underworld
kingpin Carlo Hesser in October of ’96, pretending to be pregnant with his
baby by wearing a cushion under her wedding dress.
All went totally sour as Asa, knowing Alex had had her tubes tied a few
years earlier, pulled off her dress in front of the entire crowd, exposing her
secret. Carlo was livid, to put it mildly and told her, “No
one ever betrays me.”
trying to explain to Carlo why she did it, he wound up trying his best to choke
her. She told him she wanted them
to adopt a child and everything she did was out of love for him.
In answer to this Carlo took off his wedding ring.
A few weeks later he informed her of a petition that was circulating to
have her thrown out of office. Using
a little double-talk Carlo managed to convince her that he was there to help her
(NOT!) He told her for her own
protection she should shred all her important and sensitive files.
She believed him and did as he said.
she was busy shredding, Carlo was busy calling Hank at LPD to tell him what Alex
was up to. After she was caught
red-handed, she realized that Carlo was the culprit who double-crossed her.
She then spilled everything to Hank about Carlo being the mad bomber of
the Palace Hotel and the fact that he was the infamous “Poseidon.”Next, she
hot-footed it to Todd to tell him about Carlo, in order to have it published in
the Sun. In other words, she was
out for revenge.
Carlo made plans to fake his own death in order to leave the country.
He arranged to have cocaine planted in Alex’ room as payback for her
opening her mouth once too often. (Do these two ever quit??)
Alex was taken into custody. Things
got worse after the police found the drugs in her room.
Hank offered her a deal -- a plea bargain for information about Carlo.
was planning to frame Antonio Vega for his demise, because Antonio lied to him.
On this same night Todd was giving a huge party for Blair.
Everyone who is anyone was there, including Carlo Hesser.
All of a sudden the lights went out and next thing we know, Carlo is
found dead floating in the water with a bullet-hole in his head.
there, practically every major character in Llanview became a suspect in the
murder, as everyone hated Carlo for one reason or another.
Alex, not to be forgotten in this, showed up later on with Carlo’s
Will, which she forged of course, naming Antonio as the heir to Carlo’s
passed. Carlo’s twin brother, Mortimer, showed up in town and testified that
Alex was the murderer. Carlo -- er -- Mortimer got close to those in Llanview and
was regarded as the “good” brother.
day Alex was sitting alone and discussing with herself (needed help at that
point), the possibility of running for mayor once again.
Behind her she heard clapping as if in congratulations for her decision.
Carl – er -- Mortimer -- e r-- Carlo was indeed alive and was standing
right behind her. Alex, overjoyed,
but a little taken-back by his sudden appearance, began to rehash everything she
did to him and why. (Obviously this
girl had never heard the old expression “Let sleeping dogs lie”) They
are drawn together again in
Carlo’s limousine and soon disappear into the sunset, never to be seen again.
