Mark Collier and Terri Colombino play newlyweds Mike and Katie.
Simon is crusing for a bruising on 'World' !

Mike comes face to face with Katie's ex-husband today on "As the World Turns" - and promptly punches him.

"Katie and Mike are on a cruise," says Mark Collier, who plays recent groom Mike Kasnoff. "She has taken him on a cruise to take his mind off the fact that she killed his cousin."

It was an accident, but, yeah, Katie killed Nick Kasnoff.

That put a damper on the newlyweds for a while, so she just "kidnapped" Mike for a delayed honeymoon.

Too bad her first husband, Simon, is also on the boat.

"Katie and Mike go downstairs to the bar, and somehow Simon appears," says Collier. "Mike is upset that he's there, because the last time Simon was in town, he made such a mess of everything. So, Mike ends up hitting him."

Simon goes down, and Katie is in a fix, too.

"They [Mike and Katie] start having a conversation, and he finds out that Katie knew Simon was on the boat," says Collier. "Simon tried to come in and pretend he was the masseur when Katie was getting a massage. He was hiding in the bathroom when Mike came in!"

Sadly, Mike is not surprised that Katie lied to him.

"Mike is upset if she is going to lie about Simon again," clarifies Collier. "Does she still have feelings for him? He can't go through this again."

But little Katie is nothing if not a smooth talker.

"Somehow, within a quick amount of time, she is able to convince Mike that Simon is in the past," says Collier. "She did care about him at one point in time, but now she loves Mike. He believes her. But he also knows there is no way she has completely turned off her feelings for Simon."

Mike forgives his bride, and they take advantage of the honeymoon suite and, well, you know.

Later, Katie goes above deck and bumps into a pensive Simon strumming his guitar.

"I didn't see that scene, but I heard it turned out to be good," says the actor. "Paul is a really good guitar player. Katie comes in, and it moves her. She gets caught up in the memories."

Which doesn't bode well for her new marriage.

"The point of the whole trip was to take their minds off the situation with Nick, but now there's all this drama with Simon," says Collier. "Katie has killed two people now - his ex-girlfriend, Pilar, and his cousin, Nick."

So maybe Mike's going to stay with her out of fear?

"Maybe!" says the actor, laughing.

Comings and Goings: Rumor has it that Genie Francis is on her way back to "General Hospital" as Laura. ...
