Henry demands that Vienna tell him what she’s done to Barbara. He thinks she did something to silence Barbara from revealing her pregnancy as fake, before the wedding. Vienna denies, and manages to escape and lock him in the spa room at the Lakeview. Margo and Will arrive to help Henry, off their scenes with Katie in the Police Station where Katie admitted everything she knew about the fake pregnancy.  Alison and Casey bond while babysitting Hallie. Casey gives Ali a quick kiss. Later, at the hospital, Casey finds the recently escaped Vienna in a hospital room. She begs him for help. In the corridor, he runs into Ali who informs him of the police investigation into Vienna’s role in Barbara’s disappearance. Casey brings Margo to the room he saw Vienna in. She’s gone.

At the EOD, Will and Gwen are happily surprised to hear noises coming from inside Barbara’s hotel room. They assume Barbara’s returned, but to their shock, Iris is waiting for them.  Gwen and Will are reluctant to let Hallie bond any more with Iris.  Gwen wishes Iris would just leave.  Iris says she’s there to help.  Also, she’s found religion.  Hallie wants Iris to stay, though.  Iris wants to continue ingratiating herself with Hallie, but Gwen wants Iris on a bus out of town ASAP.  Gwen considers calling the police but Iris reminds her that Barbara would also be implicated.  At EOD, Iris has promised to leave town, making Hallie sad, but alone she books a room at the Wagon Wheel. Lily shows Carly that she closed the deal.  Lily doesn’t tell Carly about Craig’s involvement.  Lily also tells Lucinda about the deal.  Lily hopes Lucinda is proud of her.  Lucinda, a little guilty, says she is always proud of Lily, who is thrilled with this project.  Carly hears from Molly that Lily and Craig were in that motel room together.  It really gets to Carly, who rushes right to Craig and asks him what’s going on.  Craig talks to Holden about this same thing in Java, and Holden is slightly jealous of Craig being with Lily.  Gabriel is happy enough doing the work he’s doing.  Craig tells him he’s destined for bigger things.  Carly asks Lily why it was Craig and not Lily who told Carly that he and Lily were together in New York.  Lily spins the New York encounter with Craig as pure coincidence – and quite friendly.  Lily plays up her “friendship” with Craig to keep Carly from hitting on his business involvement with Carlisle Fragrance.  Craig and Lily kiss and Carly sees.  Carly talks to Jack about Craig and Lily maybe getting together, and Jack maintains that they’re both single and not to concern herself too much.  Lucinda talks to Lily about her denial that she’s okay with Holden, the man she loves, marrying someone else.  Meanwhile, everyone prepares for the bridal shower at Milltown.  At EOD, Lily shows up, unexpectedly excited for it.

Dusty reveals that Blackthorn is working with Craig.  Jack and Dusty are both concerned about the Craig/Blackthorn association, but Dusty spurns Jack’s offer to help get more information on the subject.  By end of day, Jack and Dusty agree to work together to look into the Blackthorn situation for the sake of Janet’s protection, and Dusty stuns Craig by revealing he knows that Craig’s buy-in money for Worldwide came from Blackthorn.  Lucinda wants Dusty to leave the Craig/Blackthorn issue alone, and makes a mysterious call asking someone to return to town that day.  Craig twists the knife with Lucinda; having bought into Worldwide despite what he assumes was her opposition.  Lucinda covers her knowledge of Blackthorn’s association with Craig, but is shaken by Craig’s innuendo about his and Lily’s “closeness.” Craig tells Lucinda it’s time for Lily to feel fulfilled in every way, and coyly suggests he’s ready to help her.  By end of day, Sierra is waiting for Lucinda in her office.  Sierra wonders as to Lucinda’s motives for asking Lucy to come back to town.  Lucinda insists she only wants to help Craig. Craig tells Carly he’s bought into Worldwide and is legit now.  He insists he’s moved on and suggests she do the same.  Carly insists she has moved on – with Jack.  Craig stirs the pot by dangling the notion that he’s gotten closer to Lily.  Lucy is back in town hears that Lucinda wants to help make amends with Craig.  Lucy’s not buying it, since Lucinda has always hated Craig.  Really, Lucinda wants Lucy around to create some space between Craig and Lily.  Lucy also wants to see Johnny.  Lucinda then tells Lucy about Dusty’s on-again, off-again relationship with Janet.  Lucinda calls Francoise one-way to express her hopes that Lucy will be enough to distract Craig.  Lucy finally meets up with Craig and Johnny in Old Town.  Craig hears it was Lucinda that brought Lucy back to Oakdale and he confronts Lucinda about it, who merely says to enjoy the fact that Lucy’s around.  Lucy goes with Johnny to see Dusty.  They’re happy to see each other.  They go to Old Town to get Johnny ice cream and run into Janet.  Dusty is not cold to Janet, but is indifferent. Lily and Faith encounter Holden at the dress shop.  Holden and Lily have an awkward moment and squabble over Lily’s encounter with Craig in New York.  Lily confesses to Holden that Faith in her bridesmaid’s dress made Lily realize Holden’s marriage to Molly is real.  Lily tells Holden she wants to be happy for him in his new marriage, but comes close to admitting that she can’t be.  Molly and Holden meet with the minister for a pre-wedding interview.  The minister asks if Holden still loves Lily.  Holden and Molly touch on their past relationships, but affirm they bring out the best in each other.  Lily tries to smile her way through Molly’s wedding shower, but after hearing how excited Holden is about getting married, and after everything else, Lily just can’t take it any more and has to go.  She leaves Molly’s present on the porch.  Gabriel is thinking of blackmailing Lucinda. Liberty and Parker talk, and Parker admits that no one can ever be a friend like Liberty.  But Liberty was sort of jealous of Parker and Faith.  At EOD, Parker and Faith have gone to the woods, kiss, and are on their way to making love. Blackthorn sees Janet at the diner, asks her out, but she politely turns him down.  He’s playful but insistent.

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.
