‘Grand Hotel’ Canceled By ABC After One Season

Oh no! The soapy Grand Hotel is closing its door.  Word on Tuesday is that ABC has officially canceled the drama after only one season after much hope and speculation that it might return for a second season.

However, the numbers showed that Grand Hotel averaged just under 2.8 million total weekly viewers and a 0.5 demo rating – ninth best against all summer series.

That leaves the cliffhanger episode of September 9th unresolved as its last. We will never know who shot Santiago after learning that Jason was his bio-son, while Danny finally discovered who murdered his sister …. and Javi hooked up with an older woman who turned out to be the boozin’ mama of Ingrid, and let’s not forget that kiss on the ocean between Alicia and Danny.

Grand Hotel starred: Demian Bichir, Roselyn Sanchez, Denyse Tontz, Bryan Craig, Lincoln Younes, Wendy Raquel Robinson, Feliz Ramirez and Demian Bichir, Roselyn Sanchez, Denyse Tontz, Bryan Craig, Lincoln Younes, Wendy Raquel Robinson, Feliz Ramirez, and Anne Winters among others.  The series was executive produced by: Eva Longoria, Brian Tanen, and Ben Spector

Lincoln Younes took to social media to share his thoughts and thank you’s now that that the official word is out:  “Always sad to say goodbye. .. Just got the news our little #GrandHotel familia won’t be reuniting again. But this job has brought me more joy than I could have ever imagined and for that I’ll always be supremely grateful. Thank you to the incredible fans who checked in every night, and invested in our alter-ego’s. Thank you to the wonderful creatives in the various departments who made every day on set a dream. Thank you to my cast mates for letting me bask in their light for a time. And a special thank you to Brian Tanen, Eva Longoria and Ben Spector.”

So, sad to know that there will be no more Grand Hotel? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

GRAND HOTEL Finale: How Sky Died, Paternity Game-Changer, And Another Mystery Begins

ABC’s Grand Hotel ended its season with several plot twists that kept the hour soapy drama in a fast and furious pace to give viewers the answers they had been waiting for, and if the show was picked-up, a cliffhanger with multiple suspects who could be responsible for this new crime.

If you have not watched the finale and intend to, do not read any further, spoilers contained herein:

Danny is finally revealed to Santiago and Gigi to be the brother of the deceased Sky.  Alicia decides to help Danny figure out what happened to his sister on the night she died in the hurricane.  Through flashbacks, we learn that Sky discovered the suicide note that Beatriz had written inside a closet full of jewelry while on a date with Yoli.  Sky used the Intel in it to blackmail Gigi, but Gigi says she does not have access to that kind of cash.   The letter contains the damaging proof that Mrs P and Santiago had a child together, Jason.  Santiago did not know.  To make matters even worse in current time, Santiago just made Gigi’s daughters: Carolina and Yoli part of his new will.

It seems that Mrs. P and Gigi kept the secret of Jason’s paternity and did not want to come out.  Helen put the hotel on lockdown, leaving Sky trapped and having to go through the only available exit to get out of the hotel, which led her into the night and the hurricane.  There, Gigi confronts her at gunpoint. However, there is a scuffle, and lo and behold, Mrs. P husband’s, Malcolm steps out of the shadows after overhearing that his wife had an fling and child with Santiago and clubbed Sky in the back causing her death.

After Gigi admitted to Santiago, while he was trying to push Danny over the hotel balcony, that she did not kill Sky, Gigi eventually reveals who it was, leading Danny and Alicia to later head to the hospital where Malcolm is dying.  Alicia confronts Mrs. P about her lies and how she hid Jason’s paternity from him and Santiago.  Meanwhile, Danny decides not to tell Malcolm’s family that he killed his sister, because as Danny says, “the universe had already found another way to punish him” – and with that – a few moments later, Malcolm dies.

Now that Santiago had learned that he is the bio-dad of Jason, he won’t forgive Gigi, who clearly does not want Jason getting more of the pie than her daughters if Santiago were to have the opportunity to adjust his will.  Meanwhile, Santiago has finally blackmailed Mateo out of his job at the hotel, but Mateo does not want the evidence on the flash drive Santiago has in his possession to come out of the deed that he has done.  Mrs P. also gets into a very intense phone conversation with Santiago and they agree to meet downstairs at the hotel.

However, as Santiago walks through the dark halls, out of the shadows gun shots are fired, and he is left bleeding out on the floor.  Did Gigi, Mateo, Helen or even someone else shoot him?  Maybe Carolina and Yoli’s father is the culprit, who is said to be returning home after finding out his daughters are now in Santiago’s will and who has no love lost for the guy!

In other stories, Javi was seduced by an older woman who turned out to be an alcoholic and Ingrid’s mother, a pissed Ingrid then hooks up with Mateo.  And  finally, as Danny goes to the ocean to say goodbye to his sister Sky by throwing her lighter into the sea, Alicia asks, what he is going to do next?  He says, he will return home to Chicago, but at that point the two of them share a passionate kiss.

Throughout the episode, the emotional heart of it was played to perfection by Lincoln Younes as Danny, who as the brother trying to avenge his sister’s death, played all the beats of his story arc.

So, what did you think of the Grand Hotel finale? What did you think of who was revealed to have killed Sky? Who do you think shot Santiago? Comment below.
