GENERAL HOSPITAL: Carly Accepts Sonny's Marriage Proposal! Should These Two Characters Get Married For a Fifth Time?

This week on Genera Hospital, Sonny (Maurice Benard) asked Carly (Laura Wright) to marry him … yet again!

After listening to Sonny’s sincere and sweet proposal, Carly took a moment before she gave the mobster her answer when she said: “We’ve been married four times and we couldn’t make it work.”  To which Sonny replied: “The last one doesn’t count, because I tricked you.”  Carly goes on to say: “The point is … maybe things are better the way they are.”  But Sonny persists and says: “Why do we keep pretending that this isn’t for the long haul … for better or worse?”

Carly comments, “It can get so much worse!”  Sonny comes back with, “But that’s when we shine.  If you love somebody through the good times, that’s easy.  You’ve loved me through the dark times, and I’ve loved you the same way.  I know you’re going to love me no matter what … but I guess I’m old-fashioned.”  Carly finally gives in and say, “I would love to be Mrs. Corinthos again.”

So this begs the questions: Should Sonny and Carly walk down the aisle yet again?  Do you think the story would be more interesting having them married overcoming issues and problems? Or, do you think it would be better if they eventually break-up, yet again?  Watch the proposal after the jump.  Next, share your thoughts on where the love story of CarSon should go from here in the comment section below!

I’m happy they will marry again..
It’s going to be a big part in Sonny’s turn around, Sonny has really mellowed out during the past years.. Age and time is taking the tuff gangsta outta Sonny, for sure

GH has no mobs.. they have faded away..
The mob comes down to 2 men who want money and power, no big deal..
Sonny doesn’t even have a wing-man, it’s just him same with Julian..
Two retiring gangsters it not a mob, it’s two men/criminals nothing more ..

Sonny standing alone with make believe invisible connections has faded out..
Sonny marrying Laura is the way to go..
Sonny and Carly have always been and will always be..
Things are turning in the Corinthos family as in the Jerome family..

Scotty is out to get Sonny, but Sonny is now a married man with a baby so how that will work out dunno… Something will go down so Ava gets her baby back..
I also see an Ava, Carly and Sonny triangle upcoming..
Somehow someway Sonny and Ava will be paired and that will be awesome!
A Jerome and Corinthos merging ahaa!
Father and son loving the same woman, good soap stuff !

I am going to really really miss the mobs/gangsta’s.. 🙁
2 men is not mob’s it’s 2 men .. lol 🙁

Carly and Sonny they are and will be …
I can’t wait til Ava comes out! She will be Sonny’s worst nightmare.. !

FV&RC you’d best get me some tuff gangstas back in Port Charles, I don’t care where you have to import them from just get ’em !!

Patrick

“…I can’t wait til Ava comes out! She will be Sonny’s worst nightmare.. ! ”

the first thing that crossed my mind… they are only marrying… and seemingly “happy” ever after… complete with “family”

Ava’ daughter !

this will be good drama… depending on the writing… if they draw this out… PLEASE, WRITING !

Ava : fighting with Sonny and Carly : court battle

I’d LOVE to see Ava win and regain HER child… and see Sonny and Carly crumble down the road

tit for tat… you know… Sonny and Carly can’t win them all

CeeCee

This storyline keeps repeating itself, right, Patrick? It is time these two misfits grow up……how dare they try to raise this beautiful, innocent baby! They can’t even keep themselves in check. Another messed up, little life. Yes, Avery belongs with her mother. but, will she be better off with another misfit? However, Ava is her mother and she does love her baby. I am between a rock and a hard place with this entire situation. If this were real life, I would really worry about this kid’s emotional stability.
I have missed all their previous marriages. What will be different about this one? Have they learned anything? It seems to me that when Sonny and Carly love, they REALLY love, but when they hate, they REALLY hurt each other every-which-way. ” it was one thing to make a mistake; it was another thing to keep making it” Jodi Picoult.
And, Patrick…I am still trying to figure out Su’s fascination with Sonny and his ilk (the mob). He is a worm, not a man in the true sense of the word. It is understandable and a given that “all men make mistakes, but a good man yields when he knows his course is wrong, and repairs the evil.” Sophocles. Sorry, Sophy….some idiots do not know that there is a guiding light in their path…it’s just a matter of finding it. Sonny only worries about women and who to stick it to next. Sorry about the pun, Patrick. I do not mean that the way it sound. I mean, stab someone in the back. This man has no honor….something by which real men live and to which they adhere.
My main focus was on Avery…I mostly drown Carly and Sonny out. The baby is out-of-this-world cute. She is sooo sociable. I do like how at ease and comfortable she is with Laura and Maurice. One can tell both of the actors are around children and interact well with them. That is a definite plus, in my book.

Tristan

The last thing this tanking show needs is more gangsters. The mob is killing ratings! So, let’s really let Sonny mellow out and find a new direction in life!

Harry

The SuOOster has spoken!
But hark! The SUOOSter is wrong. There are two mob families–the whole Jerome family (a new family which we are supposed to embrace) are mobsters. Yes, Jullian tells Alexis he is out, but he’s not even out enough to be pulled back in. Sonny is still the Kingpin of Port Charles, and continues to break the law with his “coffee import business (wink, wink, cough cough).
And the whole redundancy of Scotty trying to “get” Sonny is as tedious and redundantly boring as Carly and Sonny getting married for the millionth time.

Harry

When Scotty was telling Jordan that he is going to “get Corinthos” just harked back to Taggert in the 90’s saying the same thing to his chief of police. It’s tired writing and we know no one will ever get Sonny–he’s the Road Runner of Port Charles.
And the whole Denise mess has got to end. The East New Jersey accent is as fake as that ugly stupid wig. Even her brother doesn’t know it’s really Ava?
And here we are on day three of little Jake’s return and there has been nary a word mentioned to anyone about it.

su0000

Dear Harry-
The The SUOOSter is not wrong..
Sonny stands alone, there is no mob there
Julian stands alone, there is no mob there..
Where from and whom do you see see as being a mobster ‘family’ LOL
Julian is not a mob
Sonny is not a mob
They are more-so gangstas !
but they are even too mellowed out in their old age to even be good gangstas … lol

GH hasn’t had a real mob stuff for a long time..
Not even mobster stories, just Sonny and Julian vying for king of the hill status..

A mob is many hardassed killars not 2 old guys trying to outdo each other..ahaa!
GH needs to bring in Brad’s crime family, that would rock!!
Sonny and Julian would run for the hills facing off against the real deal crime lords!
I think Brads family is very dangerous!

Jimh(leave it to beaver)

Carly isnt shown even being a mother to her bad seed daughter Josslyn yet she is sooooo ready to be mommy to Ava’s daughter is absolutely ridiculous…Denmess/Ava should win worse costume award and worse acting at next years emmys…i was a Maura West fan but this is an absolute embaressment and its time to write out this overplayed character!!! Back in the 80s there was a few silly plots like the freezing of Port Charles and Casey The Alien but they look like Shakespear compared to the constant silly campiness of todays GH! At least back then the stories were character driven and well written with more realistic plots mixed in with those campy plots you could easily overlook…its time GH stops hoarding actors and clean up its messy storylines!!!

Timmm

The Woos are coming!

Tea

I really think Sonny and Carly makes the most sense of anything on this show. Sonny and Carly belong together. Maurice and Laura have so much chemistry, they really shine together on screen.

Jennifer

I agree with you completely! Sonny and Carly together through whatever life throws at them is what I want to see. I hope this story is Ava’s swan song. Love Maura but I feel Ava’s time is almost up…

CeeCee

Sonny and Carly are combustible together. I am glad someone sees the sunny-side to this worn-out reunion. I am not well-versed in GH lingo, but, from my reading the back stories, the same was said about Sonny and Brenda. There is no way on earth, in my opinion, that these two destructive beings are good for each other, or for the people closest to them. They are like an incurable malady….a cancer who infect everyone in their path.
As su says, perhaps in his old age, Sonny will see life as a journey of giving and living by a moral, judicious and law-abiding code; and not as a privilege to take everything and leave everyone behind, regardless who gets hurt.
Look at what their polluted life created…..children without a true sense of self. Michael is , at least, recognizing the infestation attached to Sonny’s name and is treading easily, but Morgan? Wow, he really is screwed up….like father like son. Where is Christina? And, how many more seeds has Sonny sown of which we are not aware. Lord help Joss and Avery.

Jess B

In all honesty I want to see them make it this time. They’ve given up in the past & it would be nice to see them actually fight to make it work this time. To see them work together in love & overcome outside obstacles would be new for them. To simply have them marry & break up again is tired & boring. They have a rich history with each other & quite frankly the dialogue this week has been swoon worthy.

So yeah let’s try something new with them-
– A wedding with guests & their kids filled with romance& not violence
– A couple who loves each other enough to work together & overcome obstacles without cheating on each other & bailing
– A couple that actually makes it even though it gets difficult

And hey I wouldn’t mind if Avery was Morgan’s & they made a new baby girl to love

In short something new & different for this couple would be for them to actually make it

Margie

Day three of boring, rehashed, awful couples. Ron can’t do romance. Where’s Jake? The cast is so huge it’s like we have A stories and B stories and then dreadful C and D stories.

Harry

Ron can’t do romance? How do you explain Morgan and Ava? Morgan and Denise? Morgan and Kiki? Ric and Donna Mills? Franco and Nina? Sparkle Pony and Michael? Lizzy and Jake 2? Valerie and Dante?
Oh, well….never mind.

Patty

LOL love your comments, I so agree!

CeeCee

Hi, Harry.
I am not sure if you are being sarcastic…I f you are, very well proffered. If not, then I agree with Margie.
None of the couple’s you mention fall into the ‘romance’ category…..Romance is true and fresh. Passionate, yes, but, with breathless hesitation. Some of these people are animals with no sense of good and bad.
How can there be real romance when it is hiding behind lies and deceit?

Jimh(leave it to beaver)
Jimh(leave it to beaver)

Spenser and Emma…lol

Harry

I thought my ‘nevermind’ made it clear I was kidding.
Margie and I go way back. Yes, I totally agree with her.

CeeCee

Well, Harry. I’m a little slow. Lol.

Jenn

I’ve enjoyed CarSon in the past but to say I’m not feeling them this time around would be an understatement. I feel like GH is toting them as their moral center and default supercouple. I don’t feel anything for this pairing at all.

SZima

Finally, some one who doesn’t feel anything for these two. I’ve never been a Sonny fan, and even though I used to love Laura Wright’s Carly, I can no longer stand her now that she’s hooked up with Sonny.
So, if they must be together, marry them off and send them on a 1-year honeymoon so I can give my FF button a rest!

Timmm

Let them marry. When Brenda returns its over!

Fanny

I wish.

Alan

They should definitely get married…and then leave Port Charles forever.

Let’s get back to some hospital drama and give the mob stories a rest.

Charday

I’m with you 1000 percent.

Jimh(leave it to beaver)
Jimh(leave it to beaver)

GH needs to clean house and stop hoarding actors…there is about a dozen who should be dropped…too many characters and draggy storylines stagnate GH and thats why ratings are down!!!

Li

agree!!! Too many characters are dragging out the mediocre story lines. I loved when you had your main stories with a few sub stories. I actually feel bad for some of the actors and their stories; they have to be thinking “what the heck is this about?”
Where is Maxie? I love her!!!

soapgal

I so loved their scenes and the proposal was even more than I had hoped it would be. I loved how Sonny’s voice cracks as he relays his heartfelt love by saying …”I wanna love you for the rest of my life , I want you to be my wife.” After that I was just a puddle on the floor lol .At present their love is strong and they have such a great bond which the hands of time seems to of made stronger through the years , I have no doubt together these two can over come anything. I am awaiting to see what this wedding does bring and if the sl bonds these two into a even stronger married couple

su0000

soapgal, hi
Sonny is Hot.. He and Carly will always be, they have the soulmate thing going on..
Sonny loves his family and like Victor Newman nobody better mess with them..

Rock on Sonny and Carly !! 🙂

Jimh(leave it to beaver)
Jimh(leave it to beaver)

Dont care who Skankster moll Carly marries…Sonny Corrupthos needs to be locked up for good…but that will never happen unless he gets an exit story…lol

Scott (ATWT Fan)

Him being jailed was meant as an exit storyline, since Maurice was in contract negotiations. I only wish it’d been a permanent exit.

Jimh(leave it to beaver)
Jimh(leave it to beaver)

i agree…

Scott (ATWT Fan)

Please, no! Laura and Maurice’s chemistry is strictly friendship, only. Laura’s Carly had the best connection with Ingo’s Jax, who Carly ultimately belonged with. And while Roger’s Todd would’ve also made a good match, they cannot happen. I’d rather see Carly single for a lengthy period of time, then end up with Julian Jerome (William deFry) or Kyle Sloane (Grayson McCouch) than with Sonny Corinthos.

Patrick

you have some really strong choices, for : Grayson and Julian

my first choice… for Carly : Ric Lansing

for Carly… “god knows why” Laura Wright continues to be front and center.. is beyond me… OK i’m on repeat

but.. for her “strong” character… which she isnt… OK her latest feature… once again arguing with Sonny… she just had to know what was going on… ala Dante… “Lulu is my cousin” LOL… really? no sooner does she head over to Lulu and spills the beans… that Valerie and Dante “kissed”… whatever

but… she needs a man who offers tingle, sensation and a machismo WHO will LEAD

Rick Hearst as Ric Lansing…. there you go…

CeeCee

This strikes as very weird, Patrick. Think about it….you feel the same oh, so rosy (not) sentiments for Carly, as I do for Sonny. Now, if we practice mental telepathy, we may make something happen….hmmmm…LOL.

Ghlover

Oh how i agree about Carly and Jax! They are the real soul mates. I say it’s time for a Brenda return for Sonny and Jax backnto Carly.

Fanny

Ditto.

CeeCee

I wish I had had a taste of Jax’s and Carly’s interaction, Ghlover. I saw them together last year when he came to ‘visit’ Port Charles. I did enjoy seeing them together. He poses quite a figure…well, taller than she. They certainly did not look mismatched as Carly and Sonny. She dwarfs him. I believe you when you say Jax and Carly are the real soul-mates.

Rose

Not sure if I think Carly and Jax were an obvious choice, but he really brought out the best in her…something Sonny definitely doesn’t do. Plus, Carly wouldn’t own the Metro Court if it wasn’t for Jax. Wish they could have stayed together but she still has to sabotage their relationship with Sonny. Currently I really can’t see anyone for Carly other than Sonny, and Sonny for the wrong reasons. And definitely not Rick.

Trisha

I’m thrilled Sonny and Carly are getting married again. They were one of the most exciting couples on GH, especially when they were married. Their being together as a family, having to be protected from Sonny’s enemies, always having something going on in their lives while trying to live a normal family life made them one of the best soap couples to watch.

They’ve proved themselves over and over again as the couple who are there for each other, no matter what. They belong on GH , especially now. GH needs them. GH looks like GH with them there. If only they’d get a real story about THEM instead of having them just talking about others.

Sonny needs to get his mobster back. Max has to come back and I just can’t wait to see Sonny tell Max that he and “Mrs. C” are getting married again. A little S&C music would be great too and then just maybe GH can get a little of it’s GH back.

DowntownLA

I don’t care. He will always be a cold blooded killer to me, so I don’t care if he’s happy or not.

Truthfully, I think the recent ratings slide all has to do with the murderer getting off lightly. Viewers waited for years for him to pay. Finally bad behavior would punished. When he walked away relatively scott free, it told the viewers, Sonny would never pay and the viewers realized this show would never have the good guys win. Look at Ava. Viewers finally had enough. Unfortunately, the character of Sonny may have been written into a corner that he can never recover. It’s not the actors fault, but the writers who crossed the line and now cannot come back. So sad as I used to like Sonny, too.

su0000

DowntownLA
Sonny has never been A cold blooded killer..
He never killed his hit men did..

Sonny was in shootouts, gun fire with other mobsters, in day of yore and was never a cold blooded killer.. Mobsters shoot each other that’s what they do lol
He shot undercover Dante but play yah pay, Sonny had not a clue who was shooting at whom and it was a great story!
hmm those days are long long long gone 🙁

Sonny has been changed, mellowed out a lot ..
And there is more to come it’s obvious they are gonna put the mobster out to pasture but he will always be a gangsta 🙂
There is difference between a mobster and gangster…
but! Sonny will always be my special has-been mobster … 🙂

Harry

Sonny is walking poster child for gun control. Let’s see–he shot Dante before he knew he was his son. He shot Carly in the head while she was giving birth to Morgan (which could explain Morgan’s stupidity) and he shot AJ dead when he erroneously believed AJ had killed Connie despite all the signs that he had not. He’s a dumb thug with a gun.
That said, the idea of Sonny and Carly getting married again triggers this response from me..zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
They’re terrible for each other. Carly is the consummate enabler who constantly tells Sonny he is a good father despite all evidence signifying otherwise. In turn, Sonny stifles Carly forcing her to make it all about him and she becomes his accessory.
The only man who brought out the best in Carly and who loved and appreciated her for who she is was Jax.

Tristan

“Sonny has never been a cold blooded killer…He never killed [,] his hit men did”?????? What show are you watching? Apparently you missed the episode where Sonny murdered AJ in cold blood, and all of those where he lied for months out of sheer cowardice!!! Whatever I may have once liked about this character was destroyed by this storyline, for all time. You have a suspicious tendency, by the way, to consistently misrepresent the history of this show. Love Sonny all you want, su0000, but at least be HONEST about him and the show, OK? Jeez.

CeeCee

Huh?????? Sonny killed AJ in cold blood. Did I imagine that?

CeeCee

Su, when someone orders a hit, said someone is just as guilty as pulling the trigger. There is no difference between a mobster and a gangster, Su. Where do you get your info? A mobster IS a gangster. Anyone who is part of a gang is considered a member of organized crime. What do you think mobster means? Basically, the same thing…..part of a ‘mob’, in this case, organized crime.
I really do not understand what makes you an expert differentiating a mobster from a gangster. He is one and the same by a different name. I think we discussed this very subject months ago. It does feel like déjà-vu. And, I believe I told you, you would be singing a different tune if you actually knew on of these crocodilians in real life. LOL

downtownla

Frankly, it disgusts me to see Sonny happy. He has yet to feel true remorse for what he did. He should be on his knees begging forgiveness from both Michael and Monica. Instead, he walks around as if did nothing wrong. And that is why I can no longer watch him on screen. It disgusts me to see him living his life without it having any impact on him or the people around him. His murder should have been the catalyst to get him out of the mob and to leave that life. But no, he only left so he could get his dumb daughter back. I hate, hate, hate Sonny with a passion now. And I used to like him. So sad.

Patrick

“…Viewers waited for years for him to pay. ”

I LOL.. at the elevator scene… as Sonny is being escorted back to Pentonville….

and no sooner… does the Governor show up to pardon the ole …. ” bleep”

in wheelchair no less

I’m finding Michael and Sabrina more interesting than Sonny and Carly.. and that’s saying something

this whole “parts” of Sonny Corinthos’ clan… is dimming

what is going to happen with Morgan… the one character who… (I still give prop to Dante ) is giving Sonny and Carly “any” REEL reason to be

I miss the energy with Ava. where’s Olivia… let’s get some passion back in to the Corinthos’ clan… without Olivia, Ava, and even Connie… this is going nowhere

su0000

yah viewers have waited for Sonny to pay the same as they wait for Victor Newman to pay, it ain’t gonna happen.
They are untouchable, I’d bet it’s in their contracts LOL ..

Nonetheless; both have paid in other ways..
ie( Sonny losing Michels love ,,Nick walking out of Newman Enterprises..
Stuff like that, they did pay a price ..

I just want Ava back in action! the Corinthos are in for some big trouble!

CeeCee

Of course, Sabrina and Michael are more interesting……young lovers exploring each other’s new feelings versus an older couple who has been around the block several times with no success. Who are you going to pick? Lol.

Anthony

They should get married and then get blown up in the “just married” car. Have dislike those characters, especially Sonny, since the get-go. The mob stories have ruined GH over the years. That would be a happily-ever-after for me!

Aden

Agreed!!!! Thanks Anthony!

Anthony

Thanks Aden. However once I posted the comment I realized a bomb wouldn’t solve the problem since nobody ever dies on GH anymore; they just get carted off to a Cassadine holding tank somewhere! But I can keep dreaming…

john

if at first you don’t succeed, try, try, try, try again

CeeCee

Yeah, John. I would just put a question mark at the end of your sentence. LOL

Linda Berthiaume

YES! I’ve been waiting years for this! So happy Sonny put a ring on it and that Carly is going to be his wife again! Sonny asking Carly to marry him with baby Avery with them was my fav scenes this week. Mo and Laura shine together on screen and I’m so happy after years of waiting S&C are finally a couple again.

Lena

IMO, of all the many “loves of his life” , including Brenda and Connie ( most of us are just blessed to have one), Carly has been the most loyal to Sonny and has proven herself to him over and over again- she gets him. Sonny has always respected Carly because of her loyalty, and he gets her. They are kindred spirits- both damaged goods who love each other for the good,bad and the ugly. Carly who has her own violent tendencies,realizes the men she truly loves have a dark side,propensity for violence, or or connected to all that vis a vis family e.g. Jax and Jerry. Back in the day even the good doctor Tony Jones went off the deep end for a while.
My main concern is for the children and especially little Avery. Sonny solemnly swears to protect his new daughter and keep her safe from harm, and today we heard gunfire,then Max brought in nu associate guy with fresh, bloody bullet wound received from the drive by just outside the house… the house where Avery lives. At least “Joss” , who must be out in the corn fields becoming one with the corn,is still safe for the time being.
If Sonny and Carly remarry, I think Sonny can afford to and should build a cloistered compound with state of the art technology to protect Avery in Port Chuckles (if he must live there). I’m sure there is another Spoon Island property with a Wyndemere type dwelling, just waiting for the taking.

Patrick

it bugs me… bugged me with how easy it seems to be to get in and out of Wyndemere… no security… no cameras… no help.. to be seen… OK i can’t stand Sam… Nancy Drew. Nikolas doesn’t owe her a danged thing… she’s “related” thru Alexis? so … what

LOL… bestill my heart

I want for every thing… to go Nikolas way… and all the rest be damned… with all the good intentions, etiquette.. and moral fiber rule … Prince Nikolas should be lording over all of Port Charles… with …. Liz, Hayden, Britta…

anway : back to Sonny…. I’ve never once seen Sonny… demeaned.. violated… blah, blah, blah… I LOL when Ava was asking mom Dehlia to snoop around Sonny office for the bluetooth… that Ava needed to clear herself… dang it! wasn’t that RC/FV ruination of the sublime Maura West.

but… there you go… Sonny … who I thought was having a moral breakthrough… when he was in Pentonville… I certainly didn’t want him to realize the err of his ways… as that would have been obvious.. but, simply, new layers, (acting outlets, choices ) for the lauded… over it… Maurice Benard…. ??? imagine AG leaving the nest… does MB’ Sonny harbor .. imagine the same theatrics?

DCORINTHOS

YES YES YES YES!!! Sonny and Carly fans have suffered for years with our couple being apart and with other pairings that didn’t work out and was not worthy of them! The CarSon fanbase is a Ride or Die Squad and we will forever love and support them no matter what! I LOVE that TPTB at GH are finally putting Sonny and Carly back together where they belong! They are Soulmates and Maurice and Laura have AMAZING Chemistry together. So YES S&C should get married and the 5th time will be the Charm <3 They have both grown as they gotten older and have learned from their mistakes. Carly is the only woman who can truly handle Sonny's lifestyle and today's show (7/17/15) proved that with the way she went to work with helping the guard Max brought in that was shot. She is a Boss Ride or Die Chick and that's exactly what Sonny needs! TPTB really need to give CarSon more airtime and more romance (love scenes) they are a HOT couple that is barely getting scenes and the ones they do get are not long but that doesn't matter because Maurice and Laura KILL it every time with the little time that they do get! Instead of using them and giving them more romance (love scenes) we get couples that are of no use like Morgan and AvaDenise and Ric and Madeline. I can Rrrrrrealy do without their make out sessions and instead give CarSon a real love scene since we haven't had one since before Sonny was sent to Pentonville because we didn't get one on Valentines Day when they had their reunion. Sonny and Carly are a Super Couple that needs to be used more!! Maurice and Laura bring the heat, passion, drama they bring it all because they are Amazing Actors that feed off each other and have the chemistry to back it up! We CarSon fans have waited years for this reunion and it's finally here and hopefully TPTB at GH will keep them together and capitalize on that awesomeness that is Maurice and Laura!!

trisha

AMEN. SOnny and Carly hAve what t takes. The problem is that this writer either didn’t want them and or didn’t know how to write for them. It also didn’t help that he fired most of the GH writers when he came to GH . Now that they’ve decided to put them back where they belong they need to give them the same kind of story that made them a super couple. A story of their own. About THEM. Not just use them for other stories. S And C fans are just waiting to be able to see their adventures again.

The show really did fans a disservice by NOT even considering keeping them up.front and center. A lot of time has been wasted. Hopefully they can get something better going with S And C

Aden

Remember when Sonny threatened to murder Carly a couple years ago??? Thats a turn on for her apparently and a Sonny style soulmate!! Someone he can bully and threaten and scream at and treat like garbage. And Carly laps it up like a kitten with a fresh saucer of milk!

Ev009

Thanks for reminding us Aden. I guess I’m in the minority but these two are just ick to me. I’m not sure what I’m supposed to get out of their union.

Toya

I think they should only get married if the writers plan to do something different and make it work,, show what a true marriage could be, le them have a big wedding too! That makes for great soap!

CeeCee

Finally, someone who speaks what I am thinking. If this marriage is to take place, Toya, then by all means….but, the writers should give them a smooth ride. No killings, no lies, no betrayals. Agreed.

Sandy

They are my favorite part of GH. I hope they actually get to go through with the wedding, and actually make it this time. I love how they are more accepting of each other this go around.,I also like their family scenes as well.

su0000

Sandy, hi

I hope they get through their wedding too, uit-
Ava will be back very soon.. as soon as Franco gets the evidence tape..
And Ava could be the stick in wheel when it comes to Sonny and of course his wedding or marriage..
It’s a soap I wouldn’t expect any less 🙂

Mary SF

Well since I wasn’t watching when the other four marriages happened this will my first time– blush blush— Okay, seriously, after four attempts, they should just live together, but they have to have a wedding so someone can crash it to stop it— of course this will also put Carly in Ava’s vengeful path because there is no way she is going to let Carly be mommy to her baby girl.

So for me it is hard to invest in the romance of this, when I know this is just a plot point to set up another plot point–it really doesn’t have anything to do with the characters at all.

Do we want to start a pool to bet whether whether the wedding will ever take place or if it does how long it will last? If we are, put me down for August wedding– September Carly in danger– Sonny sleeps with Ava in Oct– and marriage is over by November.

CeeCee

That just about sums it up, Mary….too funny!

TClark

YES!!!! Sonny and Carly fans (myself included) has waited YEARS for this couple to reunite. We’ve been teased and played with for years. Since Laura’s debut actually so it’s been a long time coming. I stopped watching GH for a few years and glad I did. I didn’t have to sit through the Johnny/Todd/Franco Connie/Kate/Connie/Kate/who the frank cares/Olivia mess!! Started watching again when Sonny shot AJ and all 3 Carly actresses shared the flashback episode. Wedding number 5 needs to be a big one since they’ve never had one and they need to stay married. Too many divorces anymore and ya I get it it’s drama but come on the writers can’t think of any other kind of drama other than an affair or divorce!!! Couples face things together all the time and come out of it stronger. Why can’t any soap honor that? There does seem to be WAY too many storylines going on that we sometimes go weeks without any good Carson scenes or other favorites we may have. This week is the first of Alexis and Julian I’ve seen in months! Some stories seem rushed so they can get to others that are dragging out for a year! I’ve read it from many many other GH fans someone should listen. TOO MANY CHARACTERS/STORYLINES!! Actors with amazing talent aren’t getting the time to give us their full potential. So so glad Carly and Sonny are back together but GH isn’t what it used to be……

Daisy

Stuttering Sonny and Screeching Carly should get married the leave town for good.

Harry

Ha! Daisy, this made me laugh aloud.

Rose

I’m Ho-Hum about Sonny and Carly getting married again. Carly said it for me in describing Sonny…arrogant, etc., and any woman choosing this kind of guy again and again should have social services come and gave a talk with her about her kids safety. We’ve already seen how protected Michael and Morgan were. Or fly in Jax since he’s Joselyn’s father. And now there’s baby Avery. Michael could have kept her, and just give visiting rights to Sonny. Anyhow, I figure it’s just a plot vehicle to get us into the next RC story. Probably it will include Brad’s family, and Ava as Ava.

Alexis seems to have the bad-boy attraction as well. Be interesting to see how Julian rationalizes being pulled back into the crime world…and he will. Couldn’t help thinking about the gag factor Cee Cee and Shay must have been going through with the latest Alexis/Julian tête-à-tête at the Metro Court. :))

And Su…it doesn’t matter who pulls the trigger or gives the order…a killer is a killer. If anything Sonny wants to keep his hands clean, and is a coward in my eyes if he does’t pull the trigger. And as far as his loyalty mantra…he let Shawn take the rap for him. Boy he’s come a long way from being an “exotic” dance club owner exploiting women to being a “coffee merchant.” Just my kind of “special” guy.

Harry

Rose, love your comment.
Alexis and Julian need take up a mutal hobby that doesn’t involve sex. They ought to take up ball room dancing lessons or something.
The SUooster (she has asked us to refer to her as The SuOOOster) is wrong when she says Sonny is not a stone cold killer.
I love Maurice Benard but I hate Sonny with the heat of a thousand suns.

CeeCee

Absolutely. Alexis acting the coquette is not very becoming for someone close to sixty…..these sexy, come-hither antics worked better for a twenty-year old Bardot.

rose

harry…Just wanted to make sure you saw this. I posted it elsewhere this morning…

Cee Cee, Shay, Nancy, Rebecca, even Harry and anyone else…We’ve all had our comments on love and sex is shown and written on GH and other soaps with reactions from “love it” to “ugh” to indifference. Here’s a wonderful take on this subject that was the theme on CBS Sunday Morning, July 26. Highly recommend going into the CBS site and checking it out. You can do it per segment…the kissing one was interesting and fun. Loved the “love lost and found again.” Enjoy!!!

Shay

Ah, you know me—actually, CeeCee and ME—too well, Rose! Yes, I was absolutely appalled by the ludicrous sex games in which Alexis and Julian engaged the other day, and I stated so on the previous thread. It really is quite unbecoming watching Ms. Davis always so ready, eager and willing to get her freak on!!!! And it is about so much more than just her age….she is simply becoming a real joke because of her raunchy, randy nature, not to mention that personally, I would like to see some of the unwarranted. repetitive physical activity accorded this tiresome tarted-up woman spread around to some of the other mature ladies….Dr. O. deserves a romance and so does Donna Mills…just not with her poor excuse for a son-in-law!!! Perhaps she should link up with Paul Hornsby? I know that he is Tracy’s ex, but they really do not look like they belong together….he needs a more feminine type. Perhaps he could even take up with Anna when she returns? (And it won’t be a moment too soon when she does….how I miss her!) As for Harry’s suggestion that ballroom dancing might be the answer for Alexis and Julian? Baaaad choice….toooo much close physical proximity….we already know where that will lead. They need to do something that requires distance and the use of both hands to keep themselves away from one another, like maybe rug weaving or whittling, for example!!!! (Then again, there’s always that knitting that CeeCee humorously suggested awhile back…for which she was repeatedly excoriated! LOL…..)

Rose

It’s not that I’m against sex at any age. But there’s more to life and relationships at any age. If not knitting, real conversation, a walk in the park, even a R&R concert could help them let off some steam. Plus, I really don’t like about how they’ve taken some stronger female characters like Alexis and Diane, who at one time were very good lawyers before their badboy weaknesses set in. Or Monica a great surgeon and Chief Of Staff at GH before they put in Dr O, who I love as a character by the way. Or Connie as publisher of a high fashion magazine. On the other hand the writers dragged her down with Sonny and she stole Molly’s book. But still she did more than eat at Kelly’s or order room service at the Metro Court Even Robin when she was on the show (don’t bring back Kimberly, recast) was a great example, at least as a doctor/researcher. Can’t say much about wife and mother…on the other hand, as much as I love Anna and Robert, not good role models as parents. And they aren’t doing much with the up and coming next generation of GH…including the guys. Except maybe Michael and Sabrina…I know touchy with you, Harry and Jimh. 🙂

Shay

@Rose….I take your point, but I can’t compare Alexis and Diane. In Ms. Miller’s case, there was a real romance that developed with Max, and they actually made a cute, devoted couple despite Mr. Giambetti’s less-than-honorable profession. With Alexis, there is simply this sick pattern of engaging in umpteen reckless flings with practically every shady character known to darken Port Charles’ doorstep. Also, Diane and Max had a fun—yet mature and rather realistic—relationship. Alexis has anything but….between the way she acts and dresses she comes off as a desperate hussy always looking for a man, and while it is laughable, there is truly nothing funny about it anymore. As for the other women you mentioned, they’ve all been ruined in one way or another by the current regime….none of them acts honorably, which is a real shame. Each one needs to regain her reputation, although once lost, it’s almost impossible to get back. At the moment, there seems to be a full court press for Tracy to recover her dignity, yet I have a feeling Paul Hornsby will be putting the kibosh on that, not to mention the fact that sticking Ms. Quartermaine with Sappy as her extremely unbelievable new bestie has done precious little to restore her image as a fierce and fabulous femme to be reckoned with. As a matter of fact, it totally beggars belief that Tracy would deign to discuss her most personal business with this immature nitwit as opposed to such longtime contemporaries as Alice or Monica….even Sam or Lulu would be more appropriate choices given their ties to the Q’s. Just saying…..

Hi Rose…

I agree with much of what you said..perhaps stronger. While I think Sonny and Carly are a great match, if I could block out all the evil they’ve inflicted on various people, or just started watching the show and wasn’t aware of any of it, I’d love them together. Some of their scenes are some of the coziest, most domestic on the show. However, I abhor that they’re happy! I’ve allowed myself to get suckered back into Sonny’s world repeatedly…always detesting what he did to AJ. But killing him, and not only getting away with it but having Carly AND his baby back is infuriating. I still hold out hope that Michael will forever resent Sonny…their relationship forever tarnished.

As for Alexis, she’s had a ‘bad boy” attraction for some time, starting with Sonny, moving along to Rick, Sean, Jerry and Julian. But how many women on GH don’t have the same. Diane, Carly, Sam, Elizabeth, Dr. O, Anna, Tracy…even Emily fell for Sonny! As for Alexis and Julian’s attraction, I think the uncomfortable part is how they portray this couple’s attraction, not that they’re so incredibly attracted to eac other. They’re the only couple that we’ve seen “play games”…or come on really jphot for each other. While I think it’s perfectly realistic and not demeaning or negating Alexis as the highly intelligent, witty, snarky woman she is…I’d rather see them romantically enthralled, or shown in a more sensual way like Patrick a spud Dam waking up together…Nathan and Maxie showering together. How Alexis “acts” when sexual is perfectly appropriate for her or anyone of any age (and this comment is not directed at you, Rose) because couples in love..or even couples just hooking up…are sexual beings. Period. The question is, how comfortable is it for the audience…and is it a “romance” that we buy. It’s not working for me for two reasons..we don’t see Alexis and Julian just enjoying each other as people…and for some reason Nancy doesn’t seem comfortable in the full out scenes. Just a ” vibe” I get. But I do know from interviews she’s done that she’s happy that she, Anna, Tracy…are being given romabpntic/sexual material instead of just focusing on younger couples. Which, obviously is great, being much more realistic and representative of all.

I do like Sabrina and Michael; they both have hearts of gold…

Tim

Now would be a good time to bring back Connie,it would bring conflict to Sonny and Carly’s relationship,and would eliminate the murder charges against Ava.Kelly Sullivan is now on Y&R,but Jessica Collins might be a good recast,plus she’s about the same age as Megan Ward,the original Kate/Connie.

CeeCee

Oooooouuuu! Tim, I like it…..why didn’t I think of that. Good call!!

richard

No this should not happen at all, as Sonny’s soulmate will ALWAYS be Brenda Barrett, everyone knows they are ENDGAME. Vanessa Marcil has even said. Carly is a fool if she thinks Brenda couldn’t comeback and blow her and Sonny out of the water!!! Certain coupls on soaps are ENDGAME and I am sick of these filler romances blocking the route!! YR’s Nick and Sharon…BB’s Ridge and Brooke, etc. Sonny and Brenda forever!!!!

kissangel864

you are so right

Timmm

They should cast some spicy nurse to come to Port Charles with her husband as a doctor. Sonny gets shot in a mob showdown, goes to the hospital to get checked out. Its only a flesh wound, he flirts with this twenty something new nurse. The nurse falls for Sonny and she leaves her husband. I think the new nurse should be named CeeCee!

su0000

Nobody can kill Sonny, ever! I won’t allow it ..
There was lots of mob stuff in past years,, heh there were even mobsters, a dozen or more of them in the past there were many more than the now 2 men ..
Even the Alcazars are gone 🙁

however in past 3 years there has been little mob stuff in comparison..
Every scene Sonny and Julian are in is not actual mob stuff..
The mob activity has greatly faded away, the action 🙁

I hope Brad’s family is brought to GH to give Julian and Sonny something to do aha!
The Woo family to shake up Port Charles..
I think the Woo’s would be more of a power family, power and money peoples with their fingers in every money pot including government officials, sophisticated crime lords..
( dangerous crime and corruption !!

then Sonny and Julian would need to team up to save themselves heh ..

Fanny

Aren’t you a clever cat!

Timmm

I know how much CeeCee LOVES Sonnybucks!

CeeCee

HaHaHaHaHaHaHa. Sonny would not know what to do with me, Timmm!! You are so funny. I need to show this to my husband, the doctor!
You know I luvs-ya, Timmy Boy! LOL.

Timmm

Peace and Love CeeCee!

Jimh(leave it to beaver)
Jimh(leave it to beaver)

You forgot su…CeeCee’s evil faternal twin, and their stern but understanding father Harry and fun-loving cousin Timmm…lol

CeeCee

HaHaHaHaHa…I am having so much fun reading these posts. You guys are great…crack me up!
Keep ’em coming, Jimh.

Iakovos

ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ. Unless they marry to stay and make some changes, then no. I do not enjoy this yo-yo relationship, never really have. You just cannot keep repeating. Same thing goes for Victor and Nikki on Y&R. After a while, we just do not care anymore.

Justin

Sonny should be in prison for murder, and Carly is still the worst. No character development here, move on.

CeeCee

Yup!! What you said, Justin.

Patrick

OK Justin… thanks, you helped my post… see below

every since Ingo Rademacher, left…. ( or was fired)

Carly has never been the same

Don

I do not think it will last they’ll be some competition on the horizon or triangle coming.

Tea

I’m loving the Sonny haters showing up. Good job. Just shows mw my Sonny is still worth talking about. Hope Sonny & Carly gets married and stay married this time. I LOVE Carson.

su0000

Tea, hi
It’s a soap..
rule #1 all couples must part lol the love drama thing..
I just hope their upcoming love drama involves Ava..
I always thought Ava and Sonny would be an awesome couple / never a dull moment ..

CeeCee

You have a point, Tea. I guess all this disdain toward Sonny is keeping him front and center. LOL.
A very smart observation.

Shay

C’mon CeeCee, you have to admit that your “SonnyBoy” revealing himself as a quoting connoisseur of Willy S. finally made you swoon just a teeny, tiny bit!!!! LOL!

CeeCee

@Shay.
Too funny, Shay! Sonny, quoting Willy? My head spun faster than Linda Blair’s. LOL. How dare he speak Willy’s name in vain? HaHa
Sonny quoting Shakespeare is as incongruous as Dogberry’s malapropism and consistent, idiotic ramblings. … ” Why, then, depart in peace, and let the child wake her with crying; for the ewe that will not hear her lamb when it babes will never answer a calf when he bleats”. Dogberry from MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING. My poor Willy….love of my life!!!!
How much sense does that quote make, Shay? NONE. that’s Sonny….LOL. later.

CeeCee

Correction; baes, not babes.

Shay

Hah! The Bard of Avon, Sonny, and YOU! Who woulda ever thunk it, CeeCee???? LOL…..

Patrick

seriously, tho ?

as a relative newcomer to GH…. ( I chose AMC over GH)

I LOVED Carly’ as played by Laura Wright… “WHEN”

Ingo Rademacher , was still on the show…. dang it… isn’t he a show stopper

have to pull out the chemistry bag…. LOL… these two just belonged

when a character falters…. along with writing… it’s angst agony… and , after all these years, since… left by the wayside

Carly and Jax “forever” in my book.

so… there you have it… my full explanation

Shay

Though Sonny and Carly are far from a charming and romantic duo in my book, I consider putting these two toxic characters back together for the umpteenth time to be a public service to the singletons of Port Charles. Since the “Couple Corinthos” always proves poisonous to their partners, marrying them off to each other will quite simply save another gullible man and woman from becoming their next victims.

su0000

Shay, hi
do you really believe there will be a wedding lol
and if there is and they do get married it is doomed.. Ava will pull them apart..
I do not see Sonny and Carly being married for long to even be in bliss lol

CeeCee

I agree. It ‘ain’t’ ‘gonna’ happen. TPTB do not like happy.

Shay

Well, su, given Sonny’s propensity for “gunshot weddings” (not to be confused with the “shotgun” variety….) it’s anybody’s guess as to whether the nuptials will actually take place. Neither he, nor Carly for that matter, have a very good track record at wedded bliss! (All I want to know is if Josslyn will be reprising her role as the prickly flower girl….her performance at the Franco Hallowedding was priceless perfection!) As for your prediction about Ava? I cannot see Sonny going for “Round Two” with her….that’s one mistake I don’t picture him repeating….the only drama surrounding her is going to be regarding Avery….there is no way in Hades that Ms. Jerome will tolerate Carly playing MamaBear to her precious little one!!!!

janet

Great Shaay. Now it will be much easier to FF when they are together.If I even bother to watch this mess again.

Shay

That is a convenient thought, Janet. Sort of like being able to skip practically the entire Wednesday through Friday episodes of last week, since nearly all of the obnoxious, meaningless characters were grouped together in one huge block of nothingness!

CeeCee

@Rose.
I hear you, Rose. I am not against sex at any age either, but, I would think the writers themselves would give Alexis a little pudor. It just isn’t realistic…it’s the constant dance of the Sphinx and the Chimera. I want to throw up!
That’s all these two do, Rose.
You’re right. Where’s the adult conversation? The walks in the park? Act like adults, please!!!! All they do is act like teens with their sexual innuendoes and banter. This display of juvenile googly-eyed adoration is disgusting for a woman her age….and, Julian looks like a fool. I wonder if Nancy and William protest about how looow they must gooo! LOL.

Shay

Exactly, CeeCee!!!! It was already a huge stretch that this preposterous “romance” was predicated upon a single tawdry teenaged backseat episode of two anonymous strangers that ultimately just happened to result in an unwed pregnancy. To make it even more ridiculous, we’re supposed to buy into the notion that these so-called adults suddenly found love with one another practically the moment after discovering that they were the parties involved in this ancient escapade? Oh, spare me. Whilst I can completely understand the childless Julian accepting the daughter (and later, son) he never knew he had, it was simply too convenient the way he and Alexis were almost immediately shoved together. Add to that their redundant, unabated passion and the whole thing has become one big joke! I swear every time we get another nauseating sex scene with these two, I think they can’t be any more vulgar or base, but then they outdo themselves. I can totally believe that NLG revels in this embarrassing farce, because she looks positively giddy and pleased as punch whenever she gets the chance to be down and dirty with Julian, but I’ve always gotten the feeling that WdV is just being a consummate (no pun intended….) professional and doing the job at hand, no matter how ludicrous and demeaning it proves to be.

GH’s Laura Wright and Wes Ramsey Talk Their Love Connection & The Demands Of Daytime

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

After presenting for the first time together, at the 45th Annual Daytime Emmys since they’ve been a couple, Laura Wright (Carly) and Wes Ramsey (Peter aka Henrik) of General Hospital have certainly been in the throes of a romantic, fun, and cherished relationship. The two former stars of Guiding Light reconnected last year at Emmy time. Now, sharing their over one year anniversary, Michael Fairman TV caught up with Laura and Wes to get some insight into what makes their relationship work amidst the hustle and bustle, and pace of both being on a network television daytime drama series, and with the pressures of Hollywood where often relationships between two actors seem to start hot and heavy but then fizzle out.

If you caught this week’s GH, you witnessed that the town of Port Charles has found out that Peter is the notorious Cesar Faison’s son, and the ramifications that will be felt for weeks and months and potentially years to come. Meanwhile, Carly is in all sorts of trouble, thanks to naughty Nelle (Chloe Lanier). Nelle is making Carly look awfully unstable and what happens next could change Carly’s life forever.

So, what do these two lovebirds have to say about their relationship and their passion for working on the soaps? Check out what they had to share below. 

Wes, you had met Laura originally years ago on Guiding Light.

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

Wes: Yes, 15 years ago in New York.

And what did you think of her then?

Wes: Well, I was smitten, but I had to keep it to myself.

You had to keep it under wraps, huh?

Wes: Yep!

Laura: I was married then.

Wes: She was pregnant with her second child.

Laura: And he’s a good Kentucky boy.

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

Wes: Uh-huh! But we would run lines in the green room and I would try very hard to make sure she didn’t catch me staring at her… too often. But we laughed, and had great conversation.

Laura: I would always say, “Wes, will you run lines with me?,” because I would want to run my lines.

Wes: We never had story together, but she always knew I was game to hang out with her for a moment.

It’s good when you’re in a relationship with someone and you can laugh with them. You seem to be able to do that a lot!

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

Laura: Oh, gosh. I think that’s all we do.

Wes: Yes, yes, yes, yes…

Laura: Like, we belly laugh. It gets to the point where people would think we were ridiculous. We’ll say things and just think it’s the funniest thing ever and people would be like, “You guys have a problem …” and we’re like, “Yeah.” (Laughs)

Laura, and then he comes back into your life years later…

Wes: That’s right, it was Emmy weekend 2017.

Laura: I totally was not expecting it at all. Even when I gave him my number I walked away going “huh…”

You mean you thought he wouldn’t call?

Laura: No, I didn’t feel that… because he hit on me hard. He’ll tell you that.

Wes: I still am hitting on her.

Laura: I remember I walked away quick after he got my number. I was like, “Oh, my God … I gotta go.”

Courtesy/Instagram

Wes: There was an assertiveness on my part that was for sure 15 years in the making. I did not expect to run into her. I also did not expect for her to tell me that she was recently single. In that split second, it was one of those, “stop the presses!” moments. Like, you need to give me your number, I’m taking you to dinner.

Laura: I go, “Oh, be quiet! Are you like, 32, because I can’t do that.” (Laughs)

Wes: And I said, “Far from it.”

Laura: He’s like, “I’m getting ready to be 40.” And I’m like, “I can do that!”

Then, on top of all of this, Wes, you land a primo role on General Hospital. That of Henrik aka Peter, Cesar Faison’s son.

Photo Credit: Courtesy/ABC

Wes: Yes, a dream come true.

Laura: I’m going to jump in and say it’s a role that he worked all on his own for. He had to screen test against 8 plus guys, 3 different auditions, 2 different days.

Wes: That’s true.

Laura: I can’t say strong enough that the best actor got the role. Meaning, Wesley is so talented and has the ability to give this character the depth, and emotion, and layers that it needs to tell the story that needs to be told. I just think he’s incredible.

So, did you know from the get-go who you were going to be playing?

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

Wes: I did not.

Laura: I did! (Laughs)

Wes: I’m thrilled that the writers have been giving me such incredible material to dive into.   Each month that goes by, it becomes more and more complex, and more and more layered and intense. I love the depth… I love the conflicts… I love the humanity… I love the desperation… I love the psychology behind it. It’s a very interesting story and a great journey to tell.

Laura: I was getting ready to say, where you mentally have to go to be the son of Faison and Anna Devane (Finola Hughes)! To blend that together is amazing. It’s incredible to watch.

You used to run lines together on Guiding Light. Do you run lines together now on GH? It’s like a full circle moment.

Laura: We do, and we carpool.

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

Wes: Something we were trying to manifest together. We thought it would be a lot of fun to work together one day.

Laura: The last week we worked, we didn’t. He worked all afternoon. I worked all morning. I was like, “Are they doing this on purpose?” I was so mad! I was like, “Why are you in the afternoon everyday?” (Laughs)

Wes: She lost her chauffeur. (Laughs)

Laura: I did! He always drives us to work. I also love when we both have afternoon calls, because we love having mornings together. So, I didn’t get my morning, nor did I have my chauffeur!

So, two actors can have a good relationship? You see so many Hollywood relationships with actors and they go bust. But that’s not always the case …

Wes: Oh, my God, yes.

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

Laura: I’m going to say this; I think I can see it being more difficult for daytime

actors, because the work we do is so intense. I know the weeks he’s getting ready to go into, and I’m getting ready to go into. Where we go emotionally and psychologically to tell these stories, on the level that we tell them, as quick as we tell them, you kind of have to become really in a headspace. The fact that we can …

Wes: … the long hours …

Laura: Yes, and exhaustion! You really have to go, “Wow! It’s not about me right now. It’s about us individually as actors.” Thank God, we know the workload. I know what he’s getting ready to go through.

Wes: I have always had so much respect for Laura’s work. On Guiding Light, I’ve always been in awe of what she’s capable of doing. So, the level of respect is obviously there. But also, the understanding whatever it is that you need from a personal assistant in one moment… or a life partner in another moment … or a best friend in moment … or whatever it is in order to get through the day-to-day and the week-to-week, so we can do what we love to do. We know we’re very lucky to have the opportunity to do what we love.

Laura was such a great co-host on my Soap Nation Live! Daytime Emmy Nomination Specials, in particular when she talks about acting. It’s so rewarding to hear the other actors who are guests on the show listening to what Laura has to say about her craft and respecting the hell out of her.

Wes: Without a doubt. You can’t watch her work and not be in awe. It speaks for itself.

Laura: I just love the journey of going to the places that we go; to bleed for it.

Wes: Leave it all out on the floor.

Laura: I know that process. So, when I see another actor that’s bleeding, I just bow to them, because I know what it takes to go there. I know the work that Wesley does. When I see that he’s spent at the end of the day, I’m like, “Babe, I so get it.” So, I can see where it could be really difficult for people that haven’t been there, because it’s a lot of work and you’re spent. It’s hard! For us, that works.

What do you think of Laura and Wes’ love connection? What do you think of the latest developments for GH’s Carly and Henrik? Comment below.

GH Nurses’ Ball 2018 Conclusion: Anna Learns Henrik Is Her Son, Maxie Has Her Son, Ava Wows, Mike & Sonny Duet!

In the most moving and exciting episode of this 2018 GH Nurses’ Ball, all roads lead to the truth about Henrik and how he is really living his life as none other than Peter August (Wes Ramsey).  First, Robert (Tristan Rogers) who has punched out by Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) on stage drags him outside of the ballroom for his part in the cover[up.  Robert is worried about Anna’s (Finola Hughes) safety. Nina (Michelle Stafford) confronts her husband about how long he’s known who Henrik is.  She later figures out why he has been trying to whisk her and Charlotte out of the country.

Onstage Mike (Max Gail) takes a mic, and makes a moment of saying he has Alzheimer’s and then launches into the song he remembers,“The Summer Wind.” As he sings, he imagines being accompanied by a big band as he proceeds to deliver a showstopper.  Suddenly, in reality, Mike is lost and disoriented … scared he stares around at the audience.  Sonny (Maurice Benard) gets up to the stage to help his dad by cluing him into the lyrics.  Sonny sings with Mike and gets him through the song.  They receive a standing ovation.

Ava (Maura West) who is preparing to perform her number comes across a moment between Kiki (Hayley Erin) and Griffin (Matt Cohen) backstage where they are in a hug.  Little does Ms. Jerome know that Griffin was consoling Kiki after her lewd run-in with Dr. Bensch (James DePaiva).   Then it is Maura West, who truly brings down the house for this year’s ball with her Ava’s rendition of “You Don’t Own Me.”  That tune was certainly a nod to all those that Ava feels have wronged her.  Yup! Sonny, Griffin and Kiki we think are some on her list!   Dressed in a white pant suit and accompanied by a bevy of male dancers, West knocked the interpretation of the song out of the park, to make it work for her character and the Nurses’ Ball.

Elsewhere, Maxie (Kristen Storms) has gone into labor, and Peter is right there safely delivering her baby boy. Maxie is taken by paramedics to the hospital, while Peter calls Spinelli (Bradford Anderson) at Maxie’s urging to let him know what happened.  Spinelli has just found out, through Sam (Kelly Monaco) and Jason (Steve Burton) that Peter is Henrick!

Anna is walking into a trap on the pier as she waits for Henrick. When he appears, he has no idea that Anna is his mother, and thinks it’s all been a set-up.  He points a gun to eliminate her once and for all, but Anna says she has something to tell him.

The Nurses’ Ball concludes with a touching finale of “Champion” featuring: Epiphany (Sonya Eddy), Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel), Bobbie (Jackie Zeman), Amy (Risa Dorken) and the other nurses.
