I gotta say, I was quite surprised when I got the chance to sit down and watch the Passions marathon yesterday. Julian is not the real killer of Al after all. The gun he thought he shot to kill Alistair didn't have any bullets and Vikki managed to shoot past Julian when she was standing behind him and actually hit and kill Alistair!! Vikki is distubed but she deserves a medal for killing the old man. No one knows it was her but they showed one of those flashbacks that Passions is famous for of her shooting him from behind Julian.
