An Emmy winner during his run as One Life to Live‘s resident scalawag, Howarth brought Todd to GH this past Monday, initially on a short-term basis, as the protective pop seeks out a pound of flesh for the tragic death of his granddaughter.

As seen in promos, Todd will train a gun on no less than mob boss Sonny (yes!), laying the groundwork for an imminent showdown between the Mannings of Llanview and Port Charles’ Corinthos clan.

Howarth’s TV daughter, Kristen Alderson (Starr), herself made the jump to GH in late February, as a contract player. Kassie DePaiva, who plays Blair, Starr’s mother/Todd’s ex, at this point is still recurring.

What do you think, GH and/or OLTL fans? Hoping to see Todd evolve into a full-fledged foe for Sonny?
