Liza shows Erica a security camera snapshot of Kendall with a pillow near David’s face. After overhearing Liza insist she will use the photo in court and put Kendall on trial, Jackson makes it clear that the evidence is inadmissible. Jackson vents his frustration to Erica over not knowing about Kendall’s incident. Caleb gets help from Asher & Bianca when he asks them to reenact the Ryan and David fight. Caleb realizes Erica didn’t have an angle to shoot from and confronts her with his theory that Kendall was the one who shot David. Erica tries to deny it but finally admits it’s true.  She details what happened and how she covered for Kendall.  She also points out that Kendall hasn’t said anything because she doesn’t remember what she did. Erica and Caleb kiss. Erica reflects on the year 2010 through a letter to her mother. Kendall bursts into a coughing fit and winds up falling into Caleb’s arms, unconscious.  Rushed to the hospital, Erica learns Kendall has pneumonia & must be monitored carefully due to the fact she’s had a heart transplant. Caleb’s a little thrown off his kiss with Erica but promises to keep that, along with the secret that Kendall shot David between them. Annie’s insecurity over her relationship with JR continues to escalate. JR assures Annie that as soon as it’s possible they will go public with their relationship.  Annie silently tells herself that her New Year’s resolution is to never be “the other woman” ever again. Caleb toasts to JR, Asher, and himself that they all have a better 2011. Madison changes her mind about taking Greenlee up on her offer of a new start in New York.  Kendall and Griffin grow closer and he urges her to take better care of herself. In an effort to keep up her spirits, Ryan and Madison arrange for Spike and Ian to visit. Greenlee continues to worry about Madison’s pregnancy and how it’s going to affect her relationship with Ryan.  Frankie tells Greenlee he knows what her real motives are and later advises Madison to watch her back when it comes to Greenlee. Greenlee tells Griffin she has the perfect friend for him. Watching Ryan and Madison interacting with Kendall and the kids really worries Greenlee but she denies it when Griffin calls her out. JR admits to Marissa that he interrogated Scott because he was concerned his cousin conned her into representing him. Distrustful of JR, Scott warns Ryan that his cousin plans to make a move on Cambias. Ryan tells JR he better treat Annie right because he doesn’t want to see her snap like she once did with him. Annie tells JR that she’s sick in the hopes he will come and take care of her.

Kendall continues to feel threatened by David despite the fact he is still in a coma. Damon tries to mend Colby’s strained relationship with her mother. Colby blames her childhood absence of a father on Liza. Asher gets Colby to open up and she admits she’s not sure if she believes Liza’s accusations of her father not loving her are true. Asher can’t imagine anyone not loving her and Damon arrives just in time to see them kissing. As Marissa and JR grow closer, he and Annie become more distant. Marissa warns Annie not to jeopardize JR’s health if she is sick. When JR goes for his health check-up Marissa accompanies him and JR admits that with her support he can get through anything.  When the doctor says he’s cancer-free, Marissa and JR embrace which Annie oversees. Caleb is affected by his feelings for Erica but assures her that he is comfortable in continuing to work with her and understands she is marrying Jack. Caleb tells Liza that he and his client (Erica) will take the lesser charge. After turning him down, Caleb suggests she reconsider. Both Marissa and Annie start to question the other’s relationship with JR as he tries to keep them both happy. After learning that Ryan warned JR about her “spinning out of control”, Annie tells Ryan not to screw up her relationship. Damon is devastated to see Colby and Asher kissing. JR tries to comfort Colby after her breakup with Damon. Damon reveals to Liza what happened and that he and Colby are over. Damon and Liza kiss. Erica worries that Kendall might remember shooting David and Ryan calms her down. Erica convinces Kendall that her anxiety over David is due to the medicine and she doesn’t need to keep thinking of the pillow accident since no crime was actually committed. Liza questions Erica on why she’s in David room. Erica rips into her, insisting that Liza is just jealous of Erica’s personal and professional success, something that Liza is lacking in both regards. As Erica and Jackson look at an unconscious David, Erica doesn’t really care if he comes out of the coma. When they leave, David lips move and he mutters Kendall’s name.

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Tells Nina He Knows Exactly Who He Is; Jason & Carly’s Wedding Comes to an Explosive Conclusion

Is it game over for Nina Reeves (Cynthia Watros), or does she have another trick up her sleeve to keep Sonny (Maurice Benard) to herself, now that he remembers who is he?

On Friday’s dramatic episode of General Hospital, “Mike” looks to be gone and Sonny has come back in full force complete with a super hero moment escaping from being trapped underneath the beam that had fallen on top of him inside the burning Tan-O.  Sonny makes his escape after inhaling so many fumes, that he needs medical attention and is rushed to the hospital with Nina going along with him.

Inside the hospital, once given the all clear, Phyllis (Joyce Guy) tells Nina, “Mike” is asking for her, while Jax (Ingo Rademacher) pleads to let the doctors handle this situation.  But, Nina heads inside the room to see Sonny.  Then came the dramatic moment that many GH fans were waiting for.  As Nina calls him “Mike, he rips off his oxygen mask in anger and says that his name is Sonny and he remembers everything!  Nina does a pivot, knowing she is caught, and says the name may have have been a fake one, but they cannot deny the way they feel about each other.  She tells him that she honestly loves him and Sonny defiantly tells her NOT to say that.  Meanwhile Jax confirms to Phyllis that Nina always knew that “Mike” was Sonny and hid it from her and Sonny for months!

Back in Port Charles, Jason (Steve Burton) and Carly’s (Laura Wright) wedding comes to a conclusion! No one interrupts the wedding and the two look lovingly at each other to start their new life together as husband and wife.

After the ceremony, mobsters Ms. Wu, Vincent, and Charles have a moment where she says “be wary of tomorrow”.  Jason and Carly have a moment alone where Jason looks truly in love with Carly now and all of those feelings he had buried for years have now come back to the surface. How will this all play out when Sonny comes back into everyone’s lives, alive and well?

After the reception had ended, Jason and Carly get in their limo to drive away as newlyweds.  She asks Jason what Ms. Wu whispered in his ear at the reception, he says she confirmed something he already knew.  Meanwhile, Vincent and Charles get in their limo.  Charles shares the world is about to be a better place without Carly and Jason in it.

Next, Carly tells the driver to start the car, and we see a bomb device under a car and the chapel blown up as the show comes to its conclusion.

Our bet is that the Novak/Buscema car was blown to bits, not Jarly’s limo thanks to a Wu double-cross, but we shall see next week! Great performances from Maurice Benard, Cynthia Watros, Laura Wright, and Steve Burton throughout this one.

So, what did you think of the moment Sonny told Nina he remembered who he is? What did you think of Jason and Carly’s nuptials? What do you think will happen next? Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.

Days Of Our Lives

Days of our Lives Kicks-Off Possession Storyline Revisted with ‘Doug’ Twist Cliffhanger, Followed by Fall Preview

Did the ‘Devil’ make them do it? Doug Williams  (Bill Hayes) is Satan? In what can only be described as major surprise twist on NBC’s Days of our Lives, for weeks, fans have thought they were about to embark on another dementia or Alzheimer’s storyline on the soaps with another beloved character.

However, Days head writer, Ron Carlivati ,and his writing team came up with a way to make it seem like this may be Doug’s fate only to use the long-running character as the impetus to bring the classic possession storyline back on the air some 25 years later.

It all goes down after Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) calls Marlena (Deidre Hall) to ask him to see Doug, after his MRI and other tests proved inconclusive for dementia, etc, to see if Dr. Evans can assess him.  The phone call to Marlena happened after John (Drake Hogestyn) was discussing the past, since Johnny (Carson Boatman) is ramping up to a shoot a movie on Sami’s life, that will include the time that Sami walked in on John and Marlena having sex, which caused Sami to act out for years and years.

 

However, and this is key, John tells Marlena that moment in time also left her alone and vulnerable to the darkest time in her life – alluding to when she became possessed by the devil – and Marlena was clearly having difficulty admitting that or going down that road of remembrance, when the phone call from Kayla saved her from digging deeper into the past.  Well now, John and Marlena may never have that conversation as she is primed to once again become possessed.

Meanwhile, Johnny is reading Will’s script for the Sami movie, and is shocked to read in it that Marlena was once possessed by the devil, as John takes out a dusty box with his Father John collar, a bible, and a news clipping of Marlena being possessed.  John is feeling that this movie will bring bad things on to all those he loves, especially Doc, and he looks to be right!

Now at her office with Doug, he admits he knows something is wrong.  He acts out and does strange things and does not know why.  Marlena brings up why Doug locked Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) in a freezer by accident. Doug gets adamant saying: “That was no accident. I locked that bitch in there on purpose.”  Marlena is shocked at his word and tone.  Then as Doug laughs, he says, “I’m not Doug.”  Next thing you know, the lowered voice of Satan comes out of Doug’s mouth and he tells Doc, “It’s been over 25 years Marlena. But did you really think I wouldn’t come back for you?” End of episode.  Great cliffhanger!

Now, check out the fall preview released following the airing of Friday’s episode by NBC below, which teases more demonic moments on Days. Then let us know in the comment section, what you thought of the ‘Doug’ twist as the possession storyline begins?

Plus, make sure to cast your vote in ‘Michael’s Poll’ of the week on the revisiting of this classic tale now in 2021 below the preview.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Jason asks Carly to Marry Him and She Responds “With All My Heart”

The stage is set now for General Hospital’s Jason/Carly/Sonny/Nina story to explode as things heated up between longtime friends and former lovers, Jason (Steve Burton) and Carly (Laura Wright) just as Jax (Ingo Rademacher) is in Nixon Falls pleading with Nina (Cynthia Watros) to come clean and tell “Mike”(Maurice Benard) that he is indeed, Sonny Corinthos.  Here’s what went down on Friday’s episode …

Back in Port Charles, at the demolished former “Jake’s”, Carly and Jason’s old stomping grounds, Carly and Jason share a kiss. Carly says she can’t believe this is happening after letting him know that all of her old romantic feelings for him are starting to come back. Apparently that is true for Jason too, as the ABC daytime drama series finally reaches back into the history of these two characters who were in love, before Carly slept with Sonny.  Back in the present day, Jason asks Carly to marry him, and she responds, “With all my heart.” But now, Carly is starting to feel more excited about what started off as a business arrangement between the two of them to retain the Corinthos family hold over the five families and the territory in Sonny’s absence.  Carly says she wants their wedding day to be about them, and later they can come to Jake’s just by themselves.

In Nixon Falls, Jax (Ingo Rademacher) is trying to get through to Nina, who has admitted her duplicity to him and how she has fallen in love with “Mike”.  When Jax informs her that Carly and Jason are getting married, she thinks that’s great then she and “Mike” can have a future together.  Nina wants Jax to just forget this conversation, and seeing Sonny, and do this for her; after all she went through in losing her child, Nelle, and her relationship with him. Then Jax asks her to think about Donna and Avery and Wiley, his children and grandchild, who don’t know he is alive and will never get to know him. Nina cries that Jax has won, and that she will tell “Mike” the truth in private (but something tells us, she is going to make “Mike” walk-in on Jason and Carly’s nuptials, so that she has a shot of keeping him all to herself by the betrayal he will witness).  Jax says he is not leaving Nixon Falls till she tells Sonny the truth, but she somehow she still got him to leave through her pleading to let her do this alone.  As Nina thinks “Mike” is walking in the front door of the Tan-O, in walks Peter (Wes Ramsey)!

Meanwhile, Jordan (Briana Nicole Henry) is rushed to General Hospital unconscious with Portia (Brook Kerr) not far behind, after being trapped together.  More bad news is revealed when Austin (Roger Howarth) gets the blood results back for Jordan and tells Curtis (Donnell Turner) that Jordan’s levels of carbon monoxide are 58% which is not good for someone with one kidney.  Austin relates that if Jordan’s kidney function doesn’t improve, they’ll have put her on dialysis.  TJ (Tajh Bellow) comes to see his mom, and sits by her bedside in tears.  Later, Curtis breaks down in tears holding Jordan’s hand to come back to him, and she opens her eyes, as Portia walks in on the scene.

Three of the five families plan to take over Port Charles and split the territory after their secret meeting, where they plan to blow up a warehouse while Carly and Jason are distracted and at their wedding; the families also received a message from Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober) while in prison.  Who will stop the “hit”?

So, what do you think of Carly and Sonny getting close? What did you think of the performances of Laura Wright, Steve Burton, Cynthia Watros, and Donnell Turner within this episode? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
