What did you think of the season three finale of Venice?

Courtesy/Venice

Courtesy/Venice

A letter burned beyond recognition, a marriage proposal, an unexpected lip-lock, a daughter in search of her parents, a split personality, a conniving cousin, a woman who is desperately trying to crossover to the afterlife,  a startling revelation and a pool of blood, were all elements of the season three finale posted for the first time to Venice the Series subscribers, yesterday.

If you have not watched the final episode of season three we won’t spoil all the soapy cliffhangers, but needless to say there were some standout moments in particular from Nadia Bjorlin as a drunken and possessive Lara, and Dot-Marie Jones as a single mom who is trying to cope with life after  the death of her late partner, and raise her child who is being bullied in school.

Crystal Chappell who never fails to illustrate to viewers why she is one of the genres greatest treasures, and Jessica Leccia, who is always understated and pure in her acting choices, along with the supporting cast of daytime favorites: Galen Gering, Eric Martsolf, Jordan Clarke, Hillary B. Smith, Peter Reckell, Molly Burnett and Liz Keifer who all provided plenty of drama throughout the finale.

So now we throw the question to you? Did you enjoy the finale?  Were you caught by surprise? Was there any shock and awe moments?  Let us know your thoughts, as we have to now wait till season four to see how this all plays out!

If you want to check out the final episode and the entire season go to the Venice the Series website and subscribe to see the show!

I’ve read the weekly recaps but I’m waiting for the DVD to be released. Watched S1 online, S2 on DVD. I prefer it on my big screen….just have to be a little more patient to get it. Next season I may do both!

Loved NB’s acting.Excepional.But so disappointed that they are wasting Lara on Giani.There is so much more to do with this character.Let someone else prop boring Giani.That said,obviously Lara is head over heels i love with Ani.Flawed with issues but madly in love.And Ani is just using her.I hope once Lani break up,Lara won’t waste her time pining for Ani.

I thought the finale was great. It set up some good soapy stuff for season 4. I have a lot of sympathy for Lara, but am looking forward for some great romantic gesture from Gina next season to stop Ani from making a mistake and marrying Lara.

This finaly was great and a tease, I just can’t for season 4 to start.
Well the burning of the letter was really like a knife through my heart, the unexpecting kiss between Gina & Stella was really an surprise ( it was a friendly kiss). Amber secret is another revelation, Owen been stabb by his former gf was a suprise a lot of surprises in this finaly. What a way to end S3. I will say Vteam bring on S4 and sooooon please.

I’m obviously watching something different than most people, because I was hugely disappointed in this season. The simple fact that I haven’t felt compelled to rewatch a single episode tells me this season just fell so flat for me. I felt like so little happened up until the last episode. Giani/Lani just sort of spun around and went no where, the whole Van being a jerk for whatever reason (I’d like a little more motivation than Mommy wasn’t there for him as a kid as to why he’s such an arse) story just kept going on and on, Sami’s sudden… Read more »

A terrible finale to cap a terrible season. I thought there were a couple episodes in the beginning of the season that were decent, but it completely lost its way throughout the course of the season. The main issue I see is that the focus of the series has lost it’s way. Instead of being a show focused on Gina and her relationships with her family and girlfriends, they decided to make it an ensemble. Ani should have been the second lead, but this year she was middle of the pack, if that. They put tons of focus on the… Read more »

Season 3 Finale was unexpected.. not in my wildest imagination I expect a lot of what happen. NB really what a last moment cast for Lara… JL she is so genuine in her acting, HB love her as well LK..and the Colonel.. there is a lot of drama and new interesting storylines for Season 4, 5,6,7 ect,..

The season 3 finale was sorta uneventful just as the season 2 finale of Venice. But then again I have to be honest and say that season 3 of Venice has been pretty dull. First of all there was NOT nearly enough of Jessica Leccia and her lovable character Ani Martin. Jessica Leccia is why myself and loads of others are continuing to still support and watch Venice. So Jessia and her character Ani should have been featured in every episode. And the episodes she was featured in she should have had way more actual screen time than she ended… Read more »

Here’s what was difficult for me. After episode 2 – which I felt was fantastic and set up so many exceptional storyline opportunities – particularly in the Ani/Gina and Ani/Lara and Lara/Gina realm – I was panting for more. DYING to see what was going to happen. And then weirdly, they dropped the ball and didn’t really explore any of it. It was TEEMING with possibilities: They could have followed Lara’s struggle – why NOT see her at AA and how she responds to it. Does someone challenge her on her BS there so she doesn’t want to go back?.… Read more »

Crystal Chappell did not disappoint!!!! She has brought all those daytime elements we fell in love with to the web. You’ve got angsty love, secret love child, questionable paternity, a proposal, manipulations, relevant social issues and of course the split personality crazy chick! We were left with cliffhangers all around and anxiously awaiting Season 4. If you havent seen Venice it is well worth $9.99!!!!!

Was a surprising season ending episode. Crystal Chappell brought back the good daytime drama that’s been missing for some time. Love all the cast, Nadia was brilliant and as always Hillary B Smith brings it yet again. So excited for season 4. Venice is proof positive why Crystal is an emmy winner! Michael Fairman you said it best “Crystal Chappell who never fails to illustrate to viewers why she is one of the genres greatest treasures”

Absolute crap on a stick. Venice has now turned into a bad generic soap and those are free on network tv. Venice lost its way and its focus. Way too many characters. Episode 2 was the highlight of the entire season, there were so many places to go and it went nowhere. The surprises in the last episode were poor only because they weren’t built throughout the season. It takes really masterful writing to lay the ground work and still surprise. This was not Venice. You want to surprise me? Kill off Owen and get rid of all the characters… Read more »

Loved Venice! I realize not everyone is happy with everything that happens in every epi, but if everyone agreed on all things..it wouldn’t be fun now would it lol.. I love all the actors involved with Venice and I’m enjoying the story that CC wants to tell. I will say tho, that the only thing i wasn’t to thrilled with was the baby s/l..but it happened and we’ve moved onto other things.
I’m enjoying Gina and Ani’s journeys and can’t wait til they’re together again 😉

I thought season 1 was FANTASTIC and it’s all gone downhill from there. Didn’t Kim Turrisi write season 1? For the love of all that is good, please PLEASE bring her back and get her writing again. Crystal, I love you. I do. But step away from the keyboard.

I have watched Venice from its creation and loved it from the very first episode. Crystal Chappell has brilliantly cast this show. I feel like she has brought back good solid daytime drama . I appreciate the use of family and personal relationships she has brought to the canvas taking us on a journey to get to know Gina and what makes her Gina. As I am sure we all know most of us have or have had relationships and life changing experiences that shape us to be who we are, makes for great layers of storytelling right? I know… Read more »

This season started out with such promise in my opinion. Epi 1 was a great recap of S2 and setup for S3. Epi 2 was tightly written with compelllingly tight story and great acting. It was just great soap. After that it started to unravel for me. Too many characters and too many disjointed storylines I sadly found myself not caring about. The finale was a disappointment to me. I felt like Gina and Ani were further apart than ever before. There was no real forward movement in that story. There were so many WTF moments that weren’t set up… Read more »

Part of my problem is what I am actually seeing on my screen and the other part is that what I am seeing doesn’t match what I am being told, by CC, about V3. CC had said that in V3, Giani go in separate directions(which happened), that they are connected but not together(which I have to think about), and that the season ends with them in a better place than ever(which I disagree strongly with). From what I saw, on my screen, they are not in a better place. They spent two epi’s sharing scenes alone. In epi 2 they… Read more »

It was awful. The whole season was terrible. The show is terrible. So much promise and CC basically just wasted it all. I have to wonder if this was say Ken Corday;s show if everyone would be praising the work. It’s complete rubbish. I just find the praising all comes from CC die hard fans. There was absolutely no follow through on any scene. First off the cast is way too huge for a web show that sometimes has shows that are less than 20 minutes. There is no way you can get a story out.

I’m happy with the size of the cast of Venice. Having several storylines seems very soapish to me. As a lesbian I love seeing a soap that has a main story focused on gay women, but I think after a while it could be a little boring if it only focused on those three women. I like seeing the other stories too. I loved Otalia, but I’m glad the Venice is not trying to repeat that story and that Gina and Ani are very different from Olivia and Natalia. From other soaps I’ve seen, where they have tried to bring… Read more »

CC should have kept Venice as the lesbian niche soap web series. And then made an entirely new web series about straight folks. She should have never tried to mix the two. CC should have NEVER chased the elusive straight soap viewers with Venice. Straight soaps fans still have Days, B&B, Y&R, and GH to watch if they want very badly written straight drama and romances. Plus the straights have plenty of well written and entertaining prime time soaps to watch heterosexual romance and stories. CC was foolish toalienate her core audience who would have kept Venice profitable for many… Read more »

Don’t assume that only lesbians watch Venice. I am straight and a diehard Giani fan. I loved Otalia. I think it is worse for me because I want to see the soulmates, Gina and Ani come together and do not enjoy Ani and Lara scenes, they are great acting together, but I don’t want to see them kiss. I often see them referred to as the “pretty”. I don’t watch for that, I watch for Gina and Ani. I also love Gina and the Colonel scenes and Owen and Gina and Owen and the Colonel.

I can understand that not everyone is going to like all the stories or all the characters on a soap. But to me, it’s like some comments give the impression that there’s something wrong with Venice having straight characters as some of the main characters. Like Venice is supposed to be the Soap equivalent of the Michigan Womyn’s Music Fest and somehow S3 is some big betrayal of this pure ideal. I don’t think that that was ever the intention of this show. I thought Venice is supposed to be for everyone. Well, maybe soap opera style story telling isn’t… Read more »

I started watching because of Jessica and Crystals old characters on the tv soap. The first season was very good and promising but since then, a big letdown. Crystal is way off of the bad girl she used to be and Jessica is being a fool, not the strong woman from their relationship on tv. Too many characters and too many story lines. Try to focus on the main characters Crystal and Jessica and build more slowly for the rest.

I thought the storyline pace for Season 3 was much too slow. The writers are used to writing for soap operas that are broadcast every day for an hour. Outside of the last episode, nothing new. At this pace, Gina and Ani will finally be together in a Nursing Home. Someone needs to persuade Kim Turrisi to return to the writing staff as these are her characters and her input is needed. That being said, I do think the story is good and the acting at times is great. I just think all web series not only Venice have to… Read more »

I find it offensive to see some people leaving personal attacks and throwing tantrums, simply because the show is not being written the way that they want. The idea behind leaving feedback is to give your opinion of the content of the show. I’m astounded to find that a community that fights for and deserves unconditional love, acceptance and equality of all people, knows how much words can hurt and affect someone would be the first to sling the mud. In any show there is always room for improvement, its one thing to provide constructive criticism. I can’t think of… Read more »

I LOVE CC and am so thrilled that she has continued on with Venice. I loved season 1 and 2. They left me begging for more. I was so excited at the beginning of season 3. Unfortunately I was really disappointed in season 3. With once a week 20 minute or so shows, there are too many characters and too many gaps in all of the character’s stories. I found myself really only loving Guya this season. I thought there should have been some growth in the Gina/Ani situation. There wasn’t. I thought there was so much potential for a… Read more »

I feel there should have been more of Lara/Ani. There is so much chemistry between them, that it got lost in the small puzzling clips we saw of them. Why did Lara not decide to try AA, why did Ani decide to forgive her so fast.

Obviously Lara loves Ani and she is ready to go great extent to have her in her life, but most of the time the two characters just never got justice in CC’s storyline as she tried to introduce too many characters.

I loved the idea of Venice when it first came out.. I too am disappointed in the fact the story line, which brought most of us to shell out $10 for season one has totally dissappeared.. I mean really, I wanted to see a love story between Gina and Ani and one or two supporting characters. But with season three and all the “new” people, I think we only got to see 10 minutes of actual screen time between Gina and Ani (including the flashbacks) ..

Would I subscribe to V4, probably. I love CC she is an amazingly talented and beautiful women that also has great thoughts and ideas and her writing skills are not to shabby BUT she needs to focus on the reason why she started this show. S1 was the best series for me with S2 leaving us with the angst and excitement for S3. In my opinion S3 fell short, far to many characters and so many story arcs that could’ve should’ve and fell flat. The main characters got lost in the back of the pack.

I want to hold up a beacon for a show to take emotional maturity seriously. This is strong writing. This is what keeps me engaged. For myself, all the daytime soaps seem fake. The acting may be fantastic and win awards yet there is a quality missing. This is where webseries or other formats can reach for the higher bar. For example, Owen kept the fact that he was laid off from his movie gig. It is very unbelievable, to me, that Sami would break off the relationship because of this. Sami is a world traveller and peace corps volunteer.… Read more »

Days Of Our Lives

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Abe Goes to the Light While John Faces Off with MarDevil

Monday’s highly-anticipated episode of Days of our Lives did not disappoint. In fact, we think that this episode should be a strong contender for DAYS to consider for one of their Outstanding Drama Series submissions for next year’s Daytime Emmys.  Why? It has it all – emotional heart with Abe’s journey to and from the light, touching flashbacks, a great performance by James Reynolds, and some special effects and editing during the John (Drake Hogesytn) vs. MarDevil scenes, which also gave us a delicious performance by Deidre Hall.

At the start of the episode, Abe has flatlined after being shot as Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) tries to revive him, but they are losing him.  As this is going on, Paulina (Jackée Harry), Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) and Eli (Lamon Archey) are gathered at the hospital awaiting news on Abe’s condition.  Later, Eli decides to go find out what is happening with Abe, and gets the shock of his life when he walks in on Abe flatlining, while Kayla tells him that Abe is gone.  Eli implores her to try to bring him back. He tells the others they are working on trying to save Abe, as Julie and Paulina bond, and later, Lani must call Theo and Brandon to let them know about Abe’s condition.

Photo: JPI

Julie reminisces about Abe, and how they have known each other for 40 years, our wink-wink that this is James Reynolds’ 40th anniversary episode.   Then, we see Abe has gone to the light wearing a white sweater and who should he see but his beloved late wife, Lexie.  No, it’s not Renee Jones, but an actress who delivers Lexie’s lines, since it had been previously reported that Jones was unavailable for the episode.  In scenes with the replacement Lexie, Reynolds showed us why he is an MVP of DAYS.  He acted up a storm and brought the emotion regardless of who was standing there.

 

However, longtime viewers got a wonderful surprise when flashback clips of scenes between Renee Jones and Reynolds were shown and they were some major moments in the history of Abe and Lexie’s relationship including: the moment when Abe learns Lexie’s pregnant, the moment when he is disgusted by Lexie’s betrayal when he learned of her involvement in the Zack baby switch storyline, and what she did to Bo and Hope, all because she was desperate for a child. Later, it’s the five-hankie moment of when Lexie, who was dying from a brain tumor, passes away in Abe’s arms.

After all the flashbacks, Lexie tells Abe he needs to go back and not to come with her to heaven. He has children, and people who love him and need him. Eventually, he says his goodbyes to Lexie and returns to the present, just as Kayla is about to call his time of death in the hospital room. All of a sudden, Abe’s heart begins to beat.

Photo: JPI

Kayla brings Julie, Eli, Lani, and Paulina the news that Abe will need surgery, but he will make it.  Then, Paulina and Lani make their way to see him. In another emotional moment, they tell him how much they love him (Paulina looks worried about her lie being exposed that Lani is not really Abe’s bio-daughter).  As the episode comes to its conclusion, we see the back of Lexie making sure Abe is safe and sound among the living, while signifying she is watching over him.

And if that was not enough, this episode also picked up where John had confronted MarDevil in the church, letting Satan knows he is on to him and that he is not going to win … he is going to get Marlena back.  Satan drives home the point that Marlena belongs to him now.  John is mortified as the cross on the church wall turns upside down. Later to show off his prowess and control, MarDevil turns the holy water blood red. As the scene progresses, MarDevil is jumping all over the church and showing up in different spots.

Photo: JPI

John then gets the lowdown on how Satan struck a deal with Marlena to let Doug (Bill Hayes) live if she let him in.  That is followed, by some of the back-story of Marlena’s first possession over 25 years ago, and why it happened when she was alone and very distraught.  MarDevil even goes on to say that he tried once before to regain control of Marlena during the Salem Serial Killer storyline, but it did not work out that time, because all the victims turned out to be alive.  MarDevil brings up Stefano and how he had made Marlena believe John was dead which left her vulnerable.  He goes on to relate that Doug was the gateway for Marlena’s re-possession.

Photo: JPI

MarDevil tells John what she did with Doug by committing him and how she wanted to kill Julie. John knows that Marlena can hear him and tries to bring her back, but as the devil struggles with that, ultimately, he wins and begins to show his strength to John tossing him around the church, where he is eventually is knocked unconscious and then dragged to, we don’t know where, by the MarDevil!

Throughout the scenes, Deidre Hall looked like she was having so much fun playing the devilish one in this campy storyline revisited.

So, what did you think of James Reynolds performance and his 40th anniversary episode? What was your favorite moment? Are you glad John knows for certain now that Marlena is once again possessed? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Jensen Ackles Shares Heartfelt Message on Death of ‘Rust’ DP Halyna Hutchins: “This Has Been a Tragedy of Epic Proportions”

Former Days of our Lives and Supernatural star, Jensen Ackles (Ex-Eric and Ex-Dean)  took to his Instagram over the weekend to pay tribute to cinematographer, Halyna Hutchins who was tragically killed in New Mexico, on the set of the film Rust in which Ackles co-starred with Alec Baldwin and Frances Fisher. Baldwin is also one of the producers of the film.

Last Thursday, in the initial investigation reports surfaced that Baldwin discharged a “prop gun” leading to the death of Hutchins and injuring director, Joel Souza.  Since that time it has been reported that Baldwin was told by the assistant director, David Halls, that the weapon was a “cold gun” meaning not loaded with live rounds following its preparation by the film set’s armorer, Hannah Gutierrez.  But in his affidavit statement, Halls says he was unaware that the prop gun contained live rounds when it was given to Baldwin for his scene.

The scene Baldwin was rehearsing was inside a church building at the Bonanza Creek Ranch. In new affidavit’s, it was noted that Baldwin was ‘cross drawing’ the weapon and pointing the gun towards the camera lens.

Photo: Getty

A grief-stricken Ackles shared:  “I’m not even sure where to start.  This has been a tragedy of epic proportions that we are all still processing. Earlier last week I felt compelled to tell Halyna just how awesome I thought she was. I told her how incredible I thought her camera shots were and just how exciting it was to watch her and her team work. Truly. She laughed and said thank you and gave me a hug. I’ll forever be thankful we had that moment.  She had a spunk and passion that infected the entire crew from the top down. She was an inspiration. My heart and prayers go out to Halyna’s husband, son and the rest of her family. There just aren’t enough words to express what an immense loss this is. She will be incredibly missed by all of us who knew and admired her.”

Since Hutchins’ death, a video also surfaced of Ackles discussing his concerns for gun safety on the set of Rust at a Supernatural convention in Colorado prior to the tragedy.

Jensen told the crowd: “I’ve got a 6 a.m. call tomorrow to have a big shoot-out. They had me pick my gun. They were like, ‘Alright, what gun would you like?’ and I was like, ‘I don’t know?’ and the armorer was like, ‘Do you have gun experience?’ I was like, ‘A little.’ And she’s like, ‘OK, well, this is how you load it, this is how we check it and make sure it’s safe. “So she’s like, ‘OK, I’m gonna put some blanks in there and I want you to just go and fire off a couple rounds towards the hill.’ And I was like, ‘OK.’ So I put the belt on, I put the gun there, and I walked out and she’s like, ‘Just make sure that you know, you pull the hammer all the way back and you aim at your target.’ And I was like, ‘OK, I got it.’  The footage was originally on You Tube, but now has been taken down.

The investigation remains and open and active on what occurred on the set of Rust, according to the Santa Fe New Mexico Sheriff’s office.
