On last night’s Dancing with the Stars, Pretty Little Liars star Brant Daugherty received the highest score of the night, a 27 from the judges for he and his dance partner, Peta Murgatroyd!

The duo danced the Quickstep to a flapper remix version of  Beyonce’s Crazy in Love for Hollywood Night.  In it, Brant played the matinee idol to perfection and he emerged as one of the contenders for the Mirror Ball trophy, if fans vote for him!

Shockingly at the end of the night, during the live elimination from last week’s viewers vote combined with the judges score from last night, Brant was in the bottom three! Luckily, he wound up being safe!

But, Brant was not safe last week when he was actually mugged at gunpoint on his way home from the live Dancing with the Stars taping!  A detail that was revealed along with the fact that Brant had torn a ligament in his foot during the video segment of the duos rehearsals, before Brant and Peta took the stage last night.

Brant opened up to PEOPLE backstage after DWTS with the details on the mugging incident:  “After the show I got dropped off and was walking up to my apartment building and a man followed me up with a gun and told me to give him my stuff. It was a complete random occurrence of events and it led up to one of the worst nights of my life – after having such a great night last week on the dance floor.”  Daugherty also related that his mugger made off with a pair of workout pants, two T-shirts, dance shoes, a toothbrush and his cell phone – making it impossible for him to contact the police immediately.

Peta Murgatroyd also revealed how Brant was of course, rattled by the situation during their rehearsal after the incident:
“He came in the next morning … and he was so flustered and emotional. I was like, ‘Oh my Lord, he’s had the worst time.'”

With a horrific week, Daugherty pulled off what the judges deemed as the best dance of the night!  Watch his DWTS performance from last night below and let you know what you thought of it? Are you rooting Brant on now more than ever knowing the hell he had gone through, almost facing elimination, and dancing his way hopefully into the hearts of the voting public?  Weigh-in!

At least he still has his life. Material possessions can be replaced. Good luck to him.

I am so sorry for anyone who have gone thru that experience. I am not a big fan of DWTS but I try to tune in for his performances, he is a great dancer. I hope this show brings him some solid exposure to casting directors and producers, he has what it takes to be a major film and television actor.

This sets the stage for Monday’s episode where Abe will go into the light, as Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) works to save his light and while he hovers between life and death, DAYS fans are treated to the special 40th anniversary episode of James Reynolds as Salem’s Abe Carver.   The Daytime Emmy-winning actor, (he won Lead Actor in 2018) began his Salem journey when he first aired back on October 29th, 1981.

DAYS Head Scribe, Ron Carlivati, Shares On Marlena’s Possession 2.0: “We Decided John Needs To Get On To This Sooner Than He Did In The Original, Because That’s What The Audience Would Expect”

As viewers of NBC’s Days of our Lives are watching the revisiting of the classic possession storyline revisited with its 2021 version 2.0, the stage is being set for plenty of devilish drama, now that good doc, Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall) is once again in the grips of evil.

We have already seen her with yellow eyes, conjuring up some demonic plans, and of course, the devil trying to pull the wool over the eyes of Marlena’s husband, John Black (Drake Hogestyn).

Back in the 1994/95 version of this storyline, Father John emerged and exorcised the demon from Marlena, so he knows a thing or two about being possessed, and the horrors it caused to Marlena, and the town of Salem 25 years ago, and as we have seen John is very, very concerned about all this talk of Marlena being possessed by the devil from the script that Johnny (Carson Boatman)  is set to make into a film on Sami’s life story.

Current Days of our Lives head writer, Ron Carlivati, spoke with Soap Opera Digest in their latest issue on newsstands now, about his plans and the creation of the 2021 possession storyline. Ron revealed that John is not going to be in the dark for long, sharing: “John has been through this, so the devil isn’t going to be able to pull the wool over his eyes the way he did the first time.”

Carlivati also added: “Even though all soap opera stories, I would argue, depend on some characters being a little bit dumb, in this case, we decided John needs to get on to this sooner than he did in the original because that’s what they audience would expect.  Look for the story to move along at a pretty good clip. We are not rushing, anything by any means – we are having so much fun with the story, but it was important to us that John not look stupid here so he starts to suspect something is wrong with her pretty soon.”

So, are you glad that John will not be completely dumped? Will Father John return to save the day? Are you enjoying the story thus far? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

Then, check out our recent interview with Ron all about the creation of DAYS limited-series, Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem still streaming on Peacock.
