Return To THE BAY


THE BAY, the wickedly entertaining Web series that took home this year's Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding New Approaches -- Drama Series, is returning with eight new episodes for what's sure to become a December to remember.

Picking up where the story left off nearly a year ago, Bay City socialite Sara Garrett (Mary Beth Evans, Kayla, DAYS OF OUR LIVES; ex-Katherine, GENERAL HOSPITAL) remains behind bars and facing murder charges while her son, Peter, is rebounding from his emotional break-up with his Mrs. Robinson (aka Janice; played by Lilly Melgar, ex-Lily, GH) by getting all hot and bothered with his other super hot ex, Vivian. What he doesn't know is that Janice has just been brutally raped and is now being verbally assaulted by Lianna (Jade Harlow; ex-Sheryl, DAYS), who found out about their affair. Making matters worse, Sara's conniving husband, Steve Jensen (Matthew Ashford, ex-Jack, DAYS; ex-Tom, GH) is scheming to get his hands on her money while a volatile John Blackwell (Ronn Moss, ex-Ridge, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL) is plotting to take down the Garretts in an even darker way.

Can Sara get released in time to save her family AND her fortune? The answers are coming beginning with two back-to-back episodes on Tuesday, December 1, and another on Thursday, December 3. The rest of the season will be unveiled every Tuesday and Thursday through December 22. For a sneak peak, check out the promo here.

Nathaniel Marston Passes Away


Nathaniel Marston (Al, ONE LIFE TO LIVE; Eddie, AS THE WORLD TURNS) has passed away at the age of 40 from injuries suffered during an automobile accident. His mother, Elizabeth Jackson, broke the news on Facebook.

"Dear family and friends," she wrote, "it is with a heavy heart that I share this devastating news. My beloved and cherished son, Nathaniel Marston, who was putting up the good fight until last night, was not able to continue due to the traumatic and devastating nature of his injuries. Nathaniel passed away peacefully as I held him in my arms."

If Marston had survived the surgeries, his quality of life would have drastically changed. "He would have required a ventilator and would never have been able to utter one more word and would have been sentenced to life as a quadriplegic," Jackson wrote. "A condition that Nate would never have been able to tolerate. By God's love and mercy, Nathaniel was spared this living hell and has traveled on to be with God, his cherished grandmother Mary Jackson, grandfather John Jackson and my sister, his Aunt Nora."

Memorial services are planned for New York City, Kauai, Hawaii, and Gerlach, Nevada. Our thoughts are with his loved ones as this difficult time.

Marston Scheduled For Another Surgery Today


According to his mother, Elizabeth Jackson, Nathaniel Marston (Al/Michael, ONE LIFE TO LIVE; Eddie, AS THE WORLD TURNS) is scheduled for another surgery later today, pending the results of a brain scan. There is a fluid build-up in his skull due to the brain shearing injury, and his doctors want to alleviate the pressure by drilling two small holes in his skull. Yet because Marston has been much more alert the past few days than he had been, "[the doctors] will perform a brain scan on Wednesday prior to surgery to see if the fluid has begun to dissipate on its own," wrote Jackson. "If, in fact, the fluid is dissipating on its own, surgery will be cancelled... So let's continue to pray that this surgery will not be necessary."

Jackson went on to detail several other "miracles" that the family has been given in the days since her son's accident, starting with how having been thrown from the cab of his pickup truck actually saved Marston's life. "Had he stayed inside, he would have been taken out in a million pieces," she explained. "The truck looks like it went through a crusher. This did not happen, and Nathaniel does not have a visible cut or bruise on his face, hands or feet. He has a few minor abrasions on his legs. How does this happen to a man who went through a windshield? God's will and love, that's how."

Marston's Mother Hoping For A Miracle


As Nathaniel Marston (Al/Michael, ONE LIFE TO LIVE; Eddie, AS THE WORLD TURNS) continues to fight for his life following the October 30 car accident near Reno, NV, that almost killed him, his mother, Elizabeth Jackson, continues to ask her son's family, friends and fans to keep sending their prayers, love and support.

In a Facebook update posted last Thursday, Jackson wrote that Marston's heart had stopped twice and that his doctors were planning to install a pacemaker "to help regulate his heartbeat so it is more consistent. For now, an external pacemaker has been placed on his chest, and it is helping."

Even more devastating, Jackson added that her son's doctor "shared with me that the most likely prognosis is that Nathaniel will live out his life as a quadriplegic."

Gaskill Is CASTLE Bound!


In "Cool Boys," the Monday, November 9, episode of ABC's CASTLE, Brian Gaskill has traded in the wings he was awarded as angel Rafe on PORT CHARLES for a very different kind of role. He's appearing as a dangerous man who heads up a heist crew. "He has a big scene with both Nathan Fillion [Joey, ONE LIFE TO LIVE] and Adam Baldwin [THE LAST SHIP], who is returning as Detective Ethan Slaughter [from season four], that you do not want to miss," previews showrunner Terence Paul Winter.

For Gaskill, reuniting with Fillion, whom he'd met while they were both soap stars, was an intriguing prospect. "I'd done stuff back with him in the 90s for ABC Daytime," Gaskill reveals. "He was Joey [on ONE LIFE TO LIVE] when I was Bobby [on ALL MY CHILDREN]."

However, Winter says their interaction on CASTLE might leave an even bigger impression. "I think it's something that people will be YouTubing and watching over and over and over again," he suggests. "I don't want to risk spoiling it by saying more, but it's wonderful!"

During the week leading up to shooting, Gaskill enjoyed spending time on set. "You know, when you're on the air eight seasons, you're not just successful, you're probably good people," he surmises of the CASTLE crew. "Not only were the costume people great, but also, they immediately sent me down to production where they were shooting and brought me to set to meet with the hair and makeup people. I don't think I've ever been on the primetime show where they took that kind of time with a guest star. It was great."

Tune in to catch him at 10:00 p.m. EST. For more about the episode, don't miss the CASTLE Primetime Preview feature in next week's ABC issue of Soaps In Depth.
