Emily finds Iris drinking in the Fairwinds Wine Cellar, with the place a wreck.  Iris thinks she’s been caught and that Emily has also seen Barbara, but when they talk to Gwen it becomes clear she has not, and is disappointed only in Iris’ drinking.  Iris, glad she hasn’t been found out, plays up her shame and throws herself on Gwen’s mercy.  Gwen understands, and actually blames Iris’ relapse on Emily, for not being as kind as she could be.  Emily can’t believe it.  Iris goes to Barbara’s room and gets ready to cash a large check.  At EOD, Emily is again disbelieving when she finds Barbara in the wine cellar. Emily has found Barbara tied up in the wine cellar.  She toys with her little bit, teasing her about it being nice with Barbara bound and gagged.  Iris finds this scene and knocks Emily over the head with a wine bottle, then ties Emily to Barbara.  Emily reveals to Barbara that Henry and Vienna are no longer together, and that ever since Barbara “disappeared” Henry has been spending all his time trying to find her.  Barbara’s faith is renewed and now she needs to escape to get home to Henry.  Gwen calls the hospital to know when to pick Iris up but hears that there is no AA meeting at Memorial today.  Henry has more or less confirmed that Barbara is in trouble.  He still considers Vienna a suspect.  Iris, sensing their getting close, suggests it could be Emily – who she’s tied up in the wine cellar.  Henry, still in his get-up, goes to the Warehouse with Paul and Myra Haft, the psychic.  Myra says Chuckles has been witness to much pain and suffering in the room, but confesses that there’s not much to offer in the way of evidence or testimony.  But Henry keeps believing, and in the end finds the scrap of paper on which Barbara had written that she was in trouble.  At EOD, Henry is vindicated.

Chris has his blood tested for an illness and Reid is concerned.  Both prepare for a meeting with union reps at Al’s, Reid with Luke, and Chris with Katie.  But Chris snaps at Katie because of his stress and later finds out that he’s tested positive for a serious condition.  Chris falls asleep while preparing for the meeting and is later chewed out by Bob for appearing lackadaisical, the opposite of how he should act if he wants to be COS, considering he’s Bob’s son.  Reid, meanwhile, takes Luke’s advice (mostly) and knocks the meeting out of the park.  Luke and Reid go for dinner at Metro.  Luke talks about Noah, and Reid is uncomfortable at that.  Later, Alison sides with Luke that Noah has been a big part of his life and Reid will have to accept hearing about him.  Noah is moving to LA in September.  Meanwhile, at Metro, Katie and Chris, and Casey and Alison, are also there.  Chris asks Reid to give him an injection, and he does so in the restroom.  Katie later complains to Reid that Chris has been hot and cold with her and Reid, knowing what’s going on with Chris’ health, asks her to be patient, while having already encouraged Chris to tell her the truth tonight.

Lucy goes to Craig’s room and they have an awkward reunion. Johnny returns with a scraped knee and Craig’s alarmed, internally, that Blackthorn could have been the man who knocked Johnny over as part of his threat. Craig accuses Blackthorn of attacking his kid, and Blackthorn denies but still wants his money.   Carly’s informed by Lily that there’s no perfume factory and that Craig was the silent partner. Carly’s upset that Lily would let Craig into their business plan. Carly turns to Jack for emotional support. Together they will look into Craig and Blackthorn.  Carly overhears Craig and Blackthorn talking about their deal. She confronts Craig, and he denies that helped Carlisle fail. Carly tells Jack that she wants to set up Blackthorn to get to the truth of the matter. Jack will let her if she wears a wire.  Dusty and Lucy wake up together. Dusty rushes off to a meeting with Teri, leaving Lucy wondering about his feelings for her. Dusty tells Teri he saw Blackthorn and Janet kissing. Teri goes to Janet and encourages her to take action before she loses Dusty. Janet takes lasagna to Dusty’s room, only to find him back in Lucy’s embrace. Jack takes distraught Janet home from the Lakeview, where she saw Dusty and Lucy in bed together. Jack tells Janet she has no one to blame but herself, since she pushed Dusty away so often. Janet concedes that Jack has a point. Dusty tells Janet that he’s sorry she was hurt by his actions, but he can’t apologize for not being perfect – he never said he was.  Janet can’t accept Dusty’s love since he slept with Lucy. Liberty defends her. Janet takes Blackthorn up on his offer to meet. Meanwhile, Jack and Carly can hardly resist the heat when Carly unbuttons her shirt so Jack can wire her. Holden walks in on them, diffusing the moment. Carly finds Blackthorn in the Lakeview Lounge and flirts with him in the hope of discovering some evidence of his corrupt past. Blackthorn is about to admit to something when Janet walks into the lounge.

Gabriel hints to Lucinda that he knows she’s behind the sabotage of Carlisle. Lucinda goes to Worldwide only to find a crying Lucy. Lucy berates Lucinda for coaxing her back to town and into Dusty’s arms when Dusty loves another woman. Lucy and Gabriel meet for the first time and bond over memories of Lidia. Lucy tells Gabriel she’s leaving because she can’t put up with her family. Gabriel confesses that he knows Lucinda set Craig up.  Craig receives a threat.  Lucy advises Gabriel to do whatever he’d like with the information that Lucinda set up Craig for failure. Gabriel goes to tell Craig, but Craig, worried about Blackthorn’s threat to his children, tells Gabriel to stay away from him. Hurt Gabriel goes to the Snyder pond. In Fashions, Liberty berates Lucy for sleeping with Dusty and ruining her mother’s happiness. Lucy tells Liberty that Janet already won. Liberty joins Gabriel at the pond, where they console each other.  Craig’s freaked out by the bomb threat he’s received. Dusty learns of Blackthorns menace to Johnny. Dusty threatens Blackthorn at Al’s. He leaves, only to run into Lucy who’s there to say goodbye.

Holden tells Lily he’ll always rescue her, no matter what. Lily doesn’t want to need rescuing. Holden recommends she stop hanging out with Craig then. Lily’s not entirely convinced. Lily meets Holden, who presents her with the necklace she hocked to get them flown back in time for Holden’s wedding. Lily’s touched by the gesture, until Holden starts to go off on Craig. Lily tries to convince Holden that Craig isn’t to blame, but they argue instead. Lily walks off, only to come home to find Sierra and Lucy there to warn her about Craig as well. They discuss how Lucinda’s played them like chess pieces and they bond.

Days Of Our Lives

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Marlena Becomes Possessed … Again!

On Tuesday’s episode of Days of our Lives, the devil had his way with his favorite person, Dr. Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall)! In story, leave it to Marlena to save Doug (Bill Hayes) by giving herself up to Satan!

As Doug revealed himself to be Satan while in a therapy session with Marlena in her office, a shook Marlena tries to comprehend what is happening! When the devil says if Marlena won’t accept him in, she will punish Doug, he does just that.

Poor Doug is left writhing in pain and on the floor, crying out for help! When we come back to the scene Marlena is not exactly right near his body, but sort of overlooking what is happening. Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) rushes into Marlena’s office to find Doug as Marlena stares blankly. Eventually, she calls for help.

After Doug is put in a hospital room and is monitored, Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) and Tripp (Lucas Adams) can’t find anything wrong with him. Meanwhile, Julie finds Marlena at the nurses station and asks what happened with Doug during their therapy session.  Marlena flashes back to what led to Doug writing on the floor, and clearly something is way off with Marlena, because she has now become possessed.

Later, Julie sits by Doug’s hospital bed as he opens his eyes, as he tells his beloved wife, “He left me and went in to her.”  A confused Julie is left to ponder what on earth Doug could be talking about.

When Marlena comes home to John (Drake Hogestyn) – who is already concerned with Johnny (Carson Boatman) being set on making a movie of Sami’s life story which includes points on Marlena’s original possession – she tells him Doug collapsed in her office. When the two hug, Marlena slowly opens her eyes  revealing that they are glowing yellow.  Yup! We are off to the races. Marlena is now once again possessed.

So, what did you think about the scenes between Deidre Hall and Bill Hayes? Are you enjoying the revisiting of the infamous ‘possession’ storyline thus far? Comment below.

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Comes Home as Jason and Carly Begin Their Wedding Night

Monday’s episode of General Hospital continued to set the stage for major payoffs in the long and winding road tale of everyone in Port Charles believing Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) is dead.

Only now, with his memory in tact, Sonny is very much alive, no longer living as “Mike” in Nixon Falls. and back in the town which he ruled as the mob kingpin.  Problem is: his wife, Carly (Laura Wright) just got married to his best friend, Jason (Steve Burton) and they are about to have their first night together as newlyweds.  And without all the subplot and subtext, Sonny has no idea that they were first brought together to be a united front to save Sonny’s territory from the ‘Five Families’.  Only now, the two have admitted they truly are in-love with each other.

In story, after the bomb that went off was proven to kill mobsters Buscema and Novak, and not its intended target – the newlyweds – thanks to a double-cross from Ms. Wu – Jason, Carly, and Ms. Wu discuss Cyrus Renault’s (Jeff Kober) involvement and that Wu is happy for Jason and Carly.

 

At the wedding reception, Michael (Chad Duell) gives a touching speech about his mom and Jason and gives the official toast.  Later, Jason and Carly head out after Carly throws the bouquet which Willow (Katelyn MacMullen) catches.

Meanwhile, back in Nixon Falls, Sonny gets out of dodge and away from Nina (Cynthia Watros), thanks to Jax’s (Ingo Rademacher) plane, while Nina gets a visit from Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) and Anna (Finola Hughes), where she admits that Peter (Wes Ramsey) was in Nixon Falls, and caused the fire, and is going to go after Maxie (Kirsten Storms) and the baby.  She does not tell them what she did keeping Sonny away from his family for 9 months.

Anna and Peter split up to find Peter, and Peter’s exit ride hasn’t show up yet to get him out of Nixon Falls, so Anna catches him, gun drawn.

Later at the Corinthos home, Jason and Carly are alone together in the bedroom with wedding night jitters, but Jason says there is no rush as the two kiss, just as Sonny arrives home, smiles, looks around, sees photos of himself with Carly and the family, and heads upstairs!

Will Sonny find the two in each others arms and not tell then he is alive?  Will something call him away? Will Jason and Carly have sex? When will Nina get payback for all that she has done to Carly and Sonny?  Will Peter get away from Anna? Let us know your theories in the comment section below.

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.
