Earlier we reported on the dramatic final scene on last night’s midseason finale of ABC’s Revenge!  DO NOT READ ANY FURTHER, IF YOU HAVE NOT WATCHED THE EPISODE YET.

As the show promoted someone would die … and in the end … it was Daniel Grayson played by Josh Bowman who would take bullets meant for Emily (Emily VanCamp) and meet his maker!

Actor Josh Bowman spoke exclusively with EW.com on how it was to tape his final moments, and how it all came about that showrunner Sunil Nayar and the writers crafted Bowman’s exit story, especially when Josh had been quoted, or misquoted, as saying he wanted out of the ABC soap in the Hamptons.  Here are a few excerpts from the Bowman exit interview below!

Josh on departing the series and his request to leave the series:  “I think I was definitely wrongly quoted by that particular reporter. It wasn’t a plea to leave the show at all. I mean, I love working on the show. I’d do it for six seasons. I had a sit down with Sunil at the beginning of this season, before the writers were in the writers’ room, and we just discussed my character and the arc, where he could go, where he shouldn’t go. We thought it was very important to have him be redeemed and have some sort of heroic last act for Emily. We thought that would bring the character full circle considering where he’s come from. We’d lead him right back to where he was in season 1. By having him save Emily and sacrifice himself, it was the perfect, fitting end for the character. Sunil and his team of writers did a fantastic job. As actors, you always just want what’s best for the story. I think, collaboratively, for the show, we thought it was a good idea to have a domino effect moving forward. It’s not a good thing to leave a show, but it’s a good thing for the story to help move it forward.”

Josh on how his last tape day went: “Sad. It was very sad. I didn’t think it would be as sad as it would be, but it really pulled on my heartstrings a lot. I’ve grown up on this show, really. It’s been four years. I’ve made some amazing friends. Honestly, it was very difficult. It was difficult to leave the lot as well for the last time.”

What do you think about Josh’s comments?  Was it it a fitting conclusion for the arc of the character of Daniel Grayson? Let us know your thoughts below!

I guess I’m a sentimentalist. I was hoping Emily and Daniel would finally get together for real. To me that would have been fitting way to rise above all the Grayson BS they both had had to put up with over the years. Oops…what was I thinking…a happy ending?

I don’t know…as I said on the other post I LOVED Daniel..and for me it’s a great loss as far as the show goes. To me he was the heart and soul…I felt empathetic toward him during his relationship with Emily. He really loved her and tried so hard to be the perfect boyfriend. She completely took advantage of him when in essence he had done nothing wrong to harm her or her father. I do believe she did fall a bit in love with him…but rationalized her feelings away. I loved his connection to his sister, to Margeaux (sp?)…how… Read more »

Well you may just get your wish…perhaps he’ll come back to console his mother. However, if I had my druthers, he WOULD have been the one to say adios! Not because I don’t think he’s gorgeous; he is. But I wasn’t invested emotionally in him…and that is precisely the reason why tptb didn’t choose him.

It was definitely a sad and shocking way to write the character off, but I would’ve preferred for Emily to end up with Daniel when the series ended. Jack is just too boring for Emily.

Great ending for Josh but sad for us as we won’t see his gorgeous self anymore! Josh was a great actor as well! Never once did I hear his English accent creep into his dialogue.

I’m going to miss him. But, this being a soap, I hope they bring him back some day. I wouldn’t mind at all.

Ingo Rademacher Speaks Out On His Dismissal From GH Sharing: “I Was Hoping to Play Jax For Another 10 or 25 Years and Unfortunately, That’s Not Going to Happen”

For the first time since he was fired for not adhering to General Hospital’s and Disney/ABC’s Covid-19 vaccine mandate, Ingo Rademacher (Ex-Jax), addressed his exit from the soap opera via an “official video” message on his Instagram account.

Ingo expressed: “I’m sorry that I didn’t put out this video earlier, but this is about thanking you guys, the fans of the show and also the GH crew and cast. I was on the show for 25 years. They were like my family a lot of the people there. I was hoping to play Jax for another 10 or 25 years and unfortunately, that’s not going to happen. I want to thank you guys for sticking with Jax for 25 years and I’m sorry that I’m not there anymore to play Jax, which is still something that I am trying to process  … it’s just kind of crazy.”

Rademacher also took aim at his former co-star, Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis) for announcing on Twitter that he was no longer on the show, before he had a chance to do so, which he says was a huge disappointment to him given that they worked together for 25 years.

He went on to say how he appreciated all the positive comments from the fans adding, “A lot of you come on there to say that you’re vaccinated but stand for medical freedom, I love hearing that, because I believe it should be a choice.”  Ingo continued to express his view, “I don’t agree with vaccine mandates or corporations ever being able to mandate a vaccine to keep your job.”

The actor closed with another nod to the viewers of GH adding, “Thank you so much for supporting me for 25 years. I will have more news later on, but for now, just wanted to thank all of you amazing fans. Thank you.”

You can watch Rademacher’s full statement via his IG post below.  Then, let us know what you thought of Ingo’s long-awaited exit message in the comment section.

I’m so impressed with the way they navigate the Covid protocols. It’s not easy but we’ll worth it. We’ve got some fun storylines coming up. I’ve been thrown in the middle of a current storyline and I think Felicia’s part in it gives it some color. Stay tuned!”

Earlier in the week on Tuesday via Twitter, Kristina expressed: “Tomorrow I head back to work on General Hospital! Lucky me. I couldn’t be more thrilled to be a part of that family once again. Here we go. More to come. Felicia Scorpio rides again.”

‘Dr. Oz Show’ Taken Off the Air in NY and PA Due to Senate Run; Daphne Oz ‘The Good Dish’ to Fill Time Slot

In light of his announcement that he will be running as a republican senate candidate in the state of Pennsylvania, Dr Oz’s daytime talk and medical show, The Dr. Oz Show, is being taken off the air in key markets in New York and Pennsylvania, according to the Fox Station Group.

According to Deadline’s sources, Fox TV Stations proceeded with pulling the Sony Pictures TV-distributed syndicated series because of the prospect of being forced to give other political candidates running in Pennsylvania equal time, expressing that it “would be a nightmare for us, there was no way we were going to be able to do that.”

In its place, look for Dr. Oz’s daughter, Daphne Oz, to be the fill-in with her show.

Starting on January 18th, Daphne’s The Good Dish, will take over the time slot during the duration of her father’s political campaign.  This potentially could go all the way through November of 2022, if Oz remains in the race through election day.

Last fall, Fox TV Stations renewed The Dr. Oz Show for two more years which gave it life through 2023.

So, do you think more stations will go bye-bye and have The Dr. Oz show pulled? What do you think of daughter Daphne’s series as the fill-in? Comment below.
