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

Photo: ABC

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 »

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..

we all need to feed our addiction 🙂

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 »

Enjoyed seeing S.Kanan. and others again. Sonny was one good looking dude, those dimples are to die for. I was not watching at the time of Sarah Brown’s Carly, but just love her.

Dominic Zamprogna On His Return To General Hospital: “So Great To Be Back With My Family!!”

The big surprise on Monday’s General Hospital in its first episode back amid the coronavirus pandemic, featured in it none other than Dominic Zamprogna and his return to the show as Dante Falconeri.

In it, viewers see Dante still struggling from his PTSD while at a WSB facility in Geneva, Switzerland at the top of the episode.

We later see Dante writing a letter to his mother, Olivia (Lisa LoCicero), that he just saves and tucks at the end of his bed, never meaning he as he says to send it, in order to keep his family and loved ones safe from him.

Zamprogna was last seen on GH back in March of 2019.  Dominic originated the role of Dante back in 2009 and had stayed with the series for 9 years before deciding to previously exit the show.  Over the last several months, Dominic has been public about wanting the opportunity to work with his GH co-stars again and how he missed them,

After today’s episode of GH aired, the series Twitter account, tweeted: “Welcome Home” to which the actor expressed: “Thank you!! So great to be back with my family!!”

This sets the stage for Dante to get well, head back to Port Charles, only to find the love of his life Lulu (Emme Rylan), involved with another man, Dustin (Mark Lawson), or who knows what else may be on the horizon.

So, what do you think will happen next for Dante? Glad Dominic is back on GH? Comment below.

Exec Prod Frank Valentini On GH’s Return with New Episodes: “There is a Bang and a Surprise and a Twist”

Monday, General Hospital will finally be airing a new episode – the first in months due to COVID-19 – which had previously shut down production of the show.  Now with safety protocols in place, GH will become the first ABC network show back on TV with original installments.

GH’s executive producer, Frank Valentini spoke to ABC 7 Los Angeles’ entertainment guru George Pennacchio on the legacy soap opera’s return and picking up the story where things left off.

Valentini offered up for Monday’s episode: “The very first few seconds of the show, I think, will blow a lot of the audience’s mind because there’s a big surprise that we inserted in.”

Meanwhile, viewers know that their is a major custody case going on for Wiley/Jonah, and that Mike’s (Max Gail) battle with Alzheimer’s could wrap in the coming months if the story continues as it had before the shut down.

However, Valentini shared that fans have some very exciting things to look forward to on GH: “There is a bang and a surprise and a twist and it’s going to be a lot of fun.”

In addition, Pennacchio reports that the GH Nurses’ Ball will return sometime in August, which usually airs in May, but didn’t, because of COVID-19 this past spring.

As to how GH will handle the love scenes, the kisses, and the intimate moments between characters which are a staple of the genre during the health crisis, Frank expressed:”Physical intimacy is limited.  We’re going to leave a lot more to the imagination.”

So, what surprises do you think are in store as previewed by Valentini when GH returns with new episodes? Comment below.
