It's not over yet! Last week's "gay wedding of the year" between professional party boy Dirk Evans and snarky WeHo queen Nelson Van Eddy (special guest stars Greg Louganis & Bruce L. Hart) concludes with today's new episode of Old Dogs & New Tricks, "Bad Reception". Watch it below!
Special Guest Stars Ian Buchanan (General Hospital) and Thom Bierdz (Young & the Restless) also return.
As Amanda Abel gives a blow-the-roof-off performance as singing secretary Lydia Lasker, Nathan (Leon Acord) is mortified to learn he and Christoph (Buchanan) have crossed paths before. Muscles (Jeffrey Patrick Olson) makes an impromptu declaration to Bobby (Bierdz). And while Ross (David Pevsner) finds the romance way too much to take, Brad (Curt Bonnem) has way too much to drink.
Finally, a confrontation between the boys and the grooms results in a big wedding surprise for Van Eddy - and a "drive of shame" for the boys, where Muscles emerges as a surprising 'voice of reason.'
"We are both very accepting," says actor Olson of his character Muscles. "But Muscles draws a line in the sand more readily, to his credit."
This is the second of Louganis' three episodes this season, while Buchanan returns for his second of four appearances. Is a potential triangle brewing between Buchanan's Christoph and Nathan's boy toy Damian (Ryland Shelton)? Enquiring minds will have to wait until the series returns on Wednesday, March 27 for answers.
While the show pokes fun at gay marriage, Acord acknowledges it is a serious issue. The show includes a card in the end credits, with a link to the NOH8 campaign's website, urging viewers to support marriage equality.
