Former The Young and the Restless hottie Wilson Bethel (Ex-Ryder) who has been a hot ticket on CW’s Hart of Dixie for the last four seasons, has  landed a new role in the upcoming midseason replacement The Astronaut Wives Club on ABC!  On the new series, Bethel will play Scott Carpenter,  the most laid-back of the astronauts and husband to Rene Carpenter (Yvonne Strahovski).

According to TV Guide: “Bethel is only slated to appear in eight of Wives‘ 10 episodes, and because Dixie has already completed filming on Season 4, the two shooting schedules don’t overlap.”

And that has also put into question, just what is the status of Hart of Dixie!  From the looks of it, it appears the show is coming to an end.  First, Wilson tweeted out on October 6th, “Thank you, Wade Kinsella for these four wonderful years. It’s been a mighty pleasure knowing you.”   Wade is the name of the character he has played on the CW drama!

And now Bethel is expanding his relationship with the series’ executive producers Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage as well as the network and studio behind Hart of Dixie, the CW and Warner Bros. TV, with two new gigs! One is the aforementioned “Astronaut Wives  Club” which is being produced by Schwartz and Savage, and the other is a turn as a writer!

Deadline.com reports the actor is writing a series for the CW: “Bethel has closed a blind script deal with Warner Bros. TV to pen a drama project for the CW. He has writing experience — Bethel wrote, produced and starred in the CW digital series Stupid Hype and L.A. Rangers. Additionally, he penned the viral Funny or Die video Call Me Doctor starring Hart Of Dixie leading lady Rachel Bilson.”

So, excited to see Wilson in his new series?  Sad to think Hart of Dixie is a goner?  What do you think of his TV success from his time in Genoa City? Comment below!

Oh, my gosh. I had completely forgotten about Ryder, and how he exited from the soap.
Whatever happened to his sister Daisy Carter and her baby Lucy? Is the baby with Daniel? I can’t remember.
Lucy will probably show up as a teen…Wow! Phyllis with a grown granddaughter is hard to grasp….I am just ruminating and fantasizing…LOL.

His atrocious “southern accent” in “Hart of Dixie” is reason enough to cancel that turkey.

Oh yes! Now I remember who he played. I was drawing a blank there for a moment (which happens more times than I care to admit).
Yes, he and his creepy sister Daisy were Children of the Corn.
Congratulations to this young and talented actor.

The broadcast’s executive producer, Ian Stewart, confirmed an opening number, when he previously told Deadline, the number “is going to be a lot of people participating, singing, rapping.  It’s hopefully going to be a very impactful start, a ton of fun.”

The Primetime Emmys will have nominees in attendance, with a more limited amount virtually, and those who have tickets can stay in the venue through the whole show, unlike the Grammys or Oscars were those nominated were ushered in and out.  Look for the Emmys to take place outside the theatre under a tent.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Remembers Carly Just as She Is Marrying Jason

After nine months of being “Mike”, Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) had a major breakthrough as his memory is all coming back to him now (as the Celine Dion song says), and in the process the Tan-O has burned to the ground, signaling the the probable end to the Nixon Falls arc of the story.

As the story picked-up on Thursday, Nina’s (Cynthia Watros) plot to keep Sonny for herself and away from Carly majorly backfired on her.  Not only does Phyllis (Joyce Guy) now know that Nina lied about “Mike’s” identify the entire time, but Peter August (Wes Ramsey) is running wild and free heading back to Port Charles to claim his baby and Maxie (Kirsten Storms), after setting fire to the building.

Since “Mike” ran in to save Nina and got hit by a beam in the process, he is alone in the burning Tan-O enveloped by flames, but that triggers the beginning of his memory coming back.

Meanwhile, back in Port Charles, Jason (Steve Burton) and Carly (Laura Wright) are at their wedding, with the five family mob bosses present with a plot of their own and everyone wondering if Jarly will say “I do'”.    The two light a candle together for those loved ones no longer with them … ah, Sonny!

Back the burning Tan-O, Sonny is visited by the vision of the real Mike (Max Gail) who tells him it’s time for him to go home now.  A conflicted Sonny tells Mike he is very happy in Nixon Falls with Nina, but Mike tells him he needs to know his past in order to move forward.  When Sonny has flashes of his violent past it frightens him, and he says whatever family he has is better off without him in their lives.

Jax (Ingo Rademacher) tries to text Maxie while still in Nixon Falls with Nina to watch out for Peter, but she is attending and managing Carly and Sonny’s wedding, so she doesn’t pick up the phone!

Inside the Tan-O, Sonny sees a vision of woman, who when she turns and faces him is Carly. While Sonny is lying on the floor and is engulfed in flames and trapped, Mike tells Sonny he can die as “Mike” or live on as the man he truly is, Sonny.  It is then Sonny calls out “Carly!”

So, what did you think of the episode? Do you think Carly and Jason will get married? Will Sonny tells Nina he remembers? What will Nina’s next move be? Are you glad Sonny seems to have his memory back? The episode featured another strong performance by Maurice Benard.  Share your thoughts below.
