FLASHBACK FRIDAY: GH Rebroadcasts ‘Sonny with 3 Carlys’ 51st Anniversary Episode

Dealing with the production shutdown due to the coroinavirus pandemic, GH is spreading out their remaining new and original episodes by airing past broadcasts every Friday.

On tap today, on May 1st, is a very special one that brought together Maurice Benard (Sonny Corinthos) and three of the women the played the role of Carly Corinthos.

Appearing in the episode are: the original Carly played by three-time Daytime Emmy winner, Sarah Brown, who played the role from 1996-2001, Tamara Braun (also a Daytime Emmy winner for her role as Ava on DAYS, but also nominated for her work as Carly)  who took on the role from 2001-2005 and the current Carly, Daytime Emmy winner, Laura Wright who stepped into the role in 2005.  Jennifer Bransford, who played the role for a short run is not part of the episode.

The action in this episode centers around Sonny reflecting on his tumultuous past with Carly.  It first aired on April 1, 2014 as part of the series 51st anniversary episode.

The episode was written by former head writer Ron Carlivati, who is now over at DAYS.  Another of the most memorable moments from the episode happens at the very beginning; when it starts in black and white as GH doctors and nurses past and presents names are paged to honor the legacy of the series and their characters, and the fans of the enduring ABC daytime drama.

It’s not to be missed!  Make sure to tune-in and let us know if you enjoyed the episode via the comment section below.

GH has become more than annoying! every (recent) episode are bursting with flashbacks.. Near a third of the episodes are flashbacks.. After a scene, there is a flashback. An episode is over a 1/3 flashbacks. It’s insulting; like we are too stupid to remember what happened during the past week. We’re not the stupid ones the writers are too brain dead to write a full episode to they have been using filler folder of flashbacks. Now we get 22 mins of an episode with 13 mins of the week or day before flashbacks. it seems. what is up with all… Read more »


appearantly you complain a lot but you don’t read, the flashbacks were inserted after GH had to close down production due to the corona virus (maybe you haven’t heard of that either) that way they could extend the episodes that are currently airing, I too was annoy till I realize its brilliant on GH/ABC part not only does it stretch the episodes but it helps new viewers tuning in follow better. now if you want tune in to DOOL and stop your GH whining. If you don’t like the current GH because RC no longer writes it (thank God) or… Read more »


hi aria 🙂
Seems you are complaining and whining more about my complaining 😉 than I with flashbacks..
I’m well aware of the soaps being down and
do not believe writers and editors/staff, spent time and effort to insert flashbacks to extend it’s time lol
personally- they did the nasty flashback deed
just to peeeeve me off..
yes! watching GH is ”mandatory”!
we all need to feed our addiction 🙂
(( stay safe during this maddening covid19 time..

// thinking soaps won’t be back til Oct, or latter.:(


In a few weeks there will be no new episodes due to the pandemic we are all facing right now!I for one am extremely grateful the show opted to go back and stretch out episodes with flashbacks so we can enjoy GH longer!That is the reason we are seeing more flashbacks because they added in them so as to create 1 episode into 2 giving us longer to enjoy the original shows!Im sure you will be complaining when there is none left of the new shows also!!!!

I think it is very ingenious and thoughtful of them to do this for the fans. It won’t be long before we don’t have any new shows.


Carlypalooza was a good episode. Wish they would go for a TRUE classic episode (i.e. anything before February 2012) but since Valentini seems to be limiting this to only episodes he was involved in, this would be one of the better ones. Though I wish they would have shown the episode where AJ actually got shot, because it reveals the truth that Ava was a lot more to blame for AJ’s death than Sonny was. Yeah, Sonny was holding the gun. But it was Ava’s gun and she already pulled the trigger. The round got stuck in the chamber apparently..… Read more »
