GENERAL HOSPITAL: All Roads Lead To Helena Cassadine In Major Cliffhanger Episode!

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

Friday’s episode of General Hospital was filled with intense scenes, great performances, and left the viewers with even more questions to ponder, which now seem to be becoming very interconnected, which after all, is good cliffhanging soap opera!

The show moved at fast pace, and had some moments that can now propel the story forward.  (However, we are sure there will be the naysayers here who perhaps don’t feel the same way).

Kelly Monaco (Sam) was finally given a meaty scene to sink her teeth into and delivered beautifully, as Sam learned the shocking truth, well sort of!  Patrick (Jason Thompson who was all terrific in these scenes) knew Jason was alive, and didn’t tell Sam, and had the Intel for months, even when the duo were investigating Crichton-Clark, and he reveals how he ran into Robin (Kimberly McCullough) there! Patrick explains that Victor Cassadine (Thaao Penghlis) blackmailed Robin to leave her family to save the life of Jason.  Only as Patrick believes after Jason was saved, he eventually died.  Sam is devastated and feels betrayed by Patrick who she sees as her best friend, and whose relationship was developing into something more!  She accuses Dr. Drake of playing God!  Is it curtains for Samtrick? Or, can they overcome this?

Meanwhile, Faison (Anders Hove) who started the fallout between Sam and Patrick with his revelation that Jason never died and was at Crichton-Clark, now has another intense scene with Anna (Finola Hughes)! And once again, brilliant performances were delivered by Anders Hove and Finola Hughes and their characters continuing cat and mouse game.  Anna questions …. just what is Faison’s involvement with Helena Cassadine (Constance Towers), who now seems to be coming up as the epicenter of all the evil-doings in Port Charles?  It is then that a key element to this entire story comes into play when Faison utters that he hasn’t worked with the Ice Queen since Lucky Spencer’s brainwashing, to which Anna gets very disturbed over.  Faison tell her that the spell is broken … and he does not love her anymore …and she is no longer worthy of his love, meaning as he claims, his obsession with the commish is kaput!  Is it though?

Courtesy/ABC

And as for Fluke … so now the real Fluke (?) has the real Luke hostage.  One interesting thing we noticed is that Fluke’s vocal inflections and intonation seemed to be altered a bit from what we remembered it to be previously.  Is that a clue? Or, are we hearing things?  Luke demands to know who this guy is and what was Faison’s involvement in all this … since the Dane was wearing the prosthetic “Lukealike” mask!  Fluke explains Faison wore the mask to trick the police and that Helena Cassadine plans on freeing Faison.    Fluke then put the screws into Luke pulling on his own face, saying there is no mask on him, as Luke wants to know who has been taking over his life.  In the end, Luke’s mouth is duct-taped! And as for Geary’s performances, you can’t really get any better than this man in the acting game.

Courtesy/ABC

Jason AKA Jake (Billy Miller) is on the pier, and who should come waltzing in to the scene but Helena! And what does she do? She fills in the blanks for the amnesiac! She reveals he is Jason Morgan!  The scenes were deliciously played by Constance Towers and Billy Miller.  Jason then realizes from Helena, just who he is, and how that must be affecting all the people who he has encountered who believe he is dead, especially when he learns that Danny is his son, and he has wife, Sam!  But not so fast GHers, he isn’t going to remember this conversation?  Apparently not, because Helena has Jason under mind control!  Helena reveals he’s working for her now.  He’s been conditioned to take her orders and do whatever she says, and he won’t remember anything afterwards. She explains she has big plans for him, and a task to be done.   Later towards the end of the episode, Sam is grabbed by a man in black ski mask!  Is that Jason?

With all roads now seemingly leading to Helena, could it be that this new theory could be a viable one?  That Fluke is really the very much alive Bill Eckert, and Helena got a hold of the guy years ago and resurrected him, and has him under mind control, which is why he is acting so despicable towards Luke?

Finally, in Pentonville we saw the long awaited freedom of Carlos and the return of Jeffrey Vincent Parise to the canvas, Sonny (Maurice Benard) lamenting over losing Michael as his “son”, and at the end of the episode the highly-touted return of Johnny Zacchara (Brandon Barash)!

So, what did you think of Friday’s GH? What performances stood out to you? Do you think Jason is the man in the ski mask? Do you think our theory could hold water as to who is Fluke? Share your thoughts below!

Friday’s episode was excellent and full of surprises! Its why I watch General Hospital!

I so AGREE! I love how some of these long-playing “secrets” are revealed from unexpected sources, like the blunt reveals of Faison telling Sam about Jason & Helena telling Jake he’s Jason. GH isn’t falling back on the old “memory coming back” trope, where Jason or someone close to him controls the information, or discovers it unexpectedly. That would take to long to play out, as we’d see him hem & haw about repercussions, feeling, yadda-yadda…Instead, stuff is being flung at the good guys & they just have to deal with it. As for Fluke, he doesn’t frustrate me as… Read more »

Hi Kansas, I don’t know if the truth ( that Jake is actually Jason) being flung in Jason’s face will make any difference. Other than the cryonics shop quartet, no one knows Jason’s true identity. Not even himself….perhaps I heard wrong, but I thought Helena told Jason, after blurting out his true identity, that he would forget what she had just revealed. Thus, it will still take THAT long to play out, …JMO… Fluke? Well, he’s just gross…frustration is not the word I would use…..repulsion just knocked on my door…lol. I do agree, though that the arrest of Fluke-who-turned-out-to-be-Faison skit… Read more »

Some of my predictions for this story has come true: Helene using mind control on Jason to help Faison(who really might be Victor) escape police custody and Faison goes on the run with Liesl…and while Liesl is gone Helene remains in PC wearing a Liesl mask…Nik confronts Liesl because of Britt leaving town, unaware its Aunt HELLena and NOT Brittas Mutter From Hell…lol

Lol, Howard. We are to believe that while Jason was at the clinic, his brain was somehow altered to do Helena’s bidding. …..for what purpose? Unknown. Because of her hate for Luke? If so, how does Sonny, Faison, Jerry, Larry or the Jeromes and, now Liesl, fit into the picture? I’m wondering if it was indeed Robin who re-arranged Jason’s brain under duress . The Cassadines all come back to life sooner or later. They take a trip to hell, make a pact with the devil and then re-surface from the earth’s bowels, as the walking dead to cause havoc.… Read more »

It was a fantastic episode EXCEPT for the time allotted to Sam for crying once again. Crying seems to be the only “emotion” allowed her since when she isn’t crying she is as dull as dishwater. I sure hope the mind control gimmick isn’t overused as an answer to all the questions raised by this extensive umbrella plot. If Jake is under Helena’s mind control, what is his trigger? Lucky’s control was “protect your queen.” Personally, it would make more sense for Helena to remind Jake that he is Jason Quartermaine rather than Jason Morgan. As a Quartermaine Helena would… Read more »

You make a very good point about Jason Quartermaine. Did the writers even consider that? And how did Helena mastermind this whole plot when she was frozen for the last 1 1/2 years?

I really think that the writers don’t even know the final goal, at this point, Engrady. There are so many holes…it seems that plots and scenes are thrown in at the last minute for good measure. This bread has been baking for so long, it is now as hard as a rock…inedible. Why would Helena be so interested in ELQ? Not money. Doesn’t she have more money than God? Power? She seems to control every corner of the planet, what else does she want? The Vatican? The Royal Jewels? Disney World?…LOL. I can’t see Port Charles as one important city… Read more »

Hi Engrady…first…I have to commend you for remembering Lucky’s triggerl, “protect your queen!” LOL…I would never have remembered that! As to the Jason M vs Jason Q…as said he’s not going to remember who he is anyway…so it may have been just to give us, the audience, a “pacifier” to see how Jake/Jason reacts to the news…which I personally felt was rather sedate. There are a few possibilities, though. For all we know she can have him programmed to act as both Jason M and Jason Q. Meaning…when she needs him to strong arm someone/kill…she triggers Jason M..( and he… Read more »

Michael Fairman, I’ll try not to be a “naysayer” (lol, love the preemptive strike!) so I’ll mainly pose some questions. First let me agree with you about Anders, Finola and Tony Geary. This is what we need more of on GH; fine actors, who make the right choices and who can play material like this without being OTT and chewing the scenery to a point that drains all credibility and drama out of the story. All three are superb. Now, some naysaying, or question posing 🙂 All the villains being connected is just too much because I’ll be shocked if… Read more »

I totally agree with you. They don’t seem to read the history nor have or utilize an expert on GH history. They don’t have a final goal/endgame in mind. Never figured out why everyone was so thrilled when they came from OLTL. I loved ol but there were story problems similar to now GH. However it’s better than GH was. But where are the character driven stories and relationships.

CeeCee

CeeCee

Exactly, GH50. It seems that these miscreants (with and without masks) are re-introduced nilly-willy en masse….then TPTB bunch them all together in one mad plot with small sub-plots here and there. It is an uphill battle without purchase or foothold, despite the fact that the acting has been superlative. I am all for suspense and cryptic plots, but not a maelstrom of confusion. This storyline is all over the map….no end and no beginning. I completely forgot how it began….the Jeromes resurfaced to take revenge on Sonny and then everything went haywire? If I could just piece these people’s connection… Read more »

Chris, that is truly an unfair comment. GH50 was fairly positive and pretty objective with his/her comment. The truth is there are loose ends and contradictions with this story and all GH50, Cin, and Cee Cee are saying is they hope those loose ends will be tied up. Cee Cee is almost always positive about this daytime series and I have read a few positive posts from GH50. I do not appreciate the mantra which dictates love-it-or-leave it. I also detest it when someone accuses someone they don’t even know of not having a life. GH50 and Cee are hardly… Read more »

Enjoying it overall. A little Helena (like Stavros, Faison and anything having to do with masks and mind control) goes a long way for me and the scenes with Jason were painful (and not in the way the show intended, I think). On the upside, the Fluke/Luke scenes were great and the Faison/Anna scenes made me squirm (can’t remember the last time a soap did that). Never cared for Carlos before but loved him on Friday. Would like to see him find some redemption as a modern anti-hero. Not sure how everything will tie together from the past three years… Read more »

I got a feeling Carlos and Sabrina will leave town to start a new life together but first Carlos will be the one to find Ava and turn her in for Connie’s murder right before Ava is able to locate her baby…just a harmless prediction!!!

Andrew
Guest
Andrew

I think you’re right. When she told Michael that she’d been fired from the hospital, it was clear that she’s being written out. I liked the character but they just seemed to run out of things for her to do once she moved on from the Patrick/Robin story. Thank God the rumors awhile back that she was another child of Sonny turned out to be just a rumor.

rebecca1
Guest
rebecca1

I don’t know jimh…Carlos seems bent on revenge. He may just go up against Duke to take down Sonny’s territory (Sonny DID try to kill him and let him rot in jail) and I doubt he’s going to help find Ava’s baby since she’s the one that made him take the fall. LOL…he should team up with Nina and Franco for the Revenge Squad.

Oops! jimh…I read you wrong. Yes, I agree with that part of what you wrote…that would be a great part of my “revenge” theory…for Carlos to be the one to turn her in.

Could be…no one else has seen Fluke with Luke…maybe its like the Jimmy Stewart movie where he’s the only one who sees Harvey the bunny…lol…Luke as Fluke only imagines he is talking to Luke…could be…im still hoping for a battle between two Lukes and no one knows which is fluke and which one is real luke…im getting so dizzy talking about luke & fluke i could puke…lol

This is the best guess regarding fluke I’ve heard definitely more plausible then all the other scenerio that have been put out there. I would find this version more realistic then all the others and less creepy that poor Tracy has been having sex with some psycho out there.

Hi k/kay…Sorry it took me so long to reply. I didn’t see your question until today. Can’t say that I was thinking of Stephen King’s The Dark Half…never read it! Sounds like a good read!

rebecca1
Guest
rebecca1

That would be a great twist…but then how would they explain Luke drugged out of his mind in miscaviage and everyone else interacting with Fluke. Julian knew Luke was being held prisoner…and everyone else saw Fluke on the outside. (unless when he wasn’t being Fluke they drugged him, kept him there and only brought him out to play when they needed him.)

Harry
Guest
Harry

So Rebecca, as I understand this theory, Luke’s battle with Fluke is a psychological internal battle of wills. Helena has been mind controlling Luke and he goes in and out of being Fluke. Maybe when Fluke was blowing it big time they sent him back to that facility to tweak the mind control thing so Fluke could come back acting more like Fluke. I like the idea of it but think it might be too intellectual, too Dostoevskian for Ron (or Gogol, or Nabokov). Or we could have an Orphan Black scenario here–Fluke is a clone who has been infused… Read more »

Guest
rebecca1

Thanks, Harry. Ya, that’s what I was saying above as well. Out in the land of the living as Fluke/Luke…back and drugged in the facility to, as you said, “tweak the mind control.” And yes, it would be quite the intellectual turn…but perhaps part of the writing team is more versed in literature than we give them credit for. Orrrrrrrrrrr…maybe it turns out Luke has mutiple personalities ala Vicki on OLTL and GH’s Connie.

k/kay
Guest
k/kay

@ Rebecca a question are you thinking that maybe the Luke/Fluke storyline could be a rip off of the book by Stephen King The Dark Half it was later made into a movie with timothy Hutton? If so it would be a great idea and Geary could pull it off.

Finally we see a different side to Billy Miller as “Jason”…loving Billy Miller in the role…love his approach. Glad he’s been paired with the beloved Constance Towers (Helena). Great to Carlos return to the canvas, and Johnny, too. I’m SO over the masks and more masks, and MORE masks. It’s banal. Pointless. I’d love to see GH reduce the cast and get rid of the boring characters: Sabrina, Lucas, Felix, Brad, Kiki, Dr. O’, Olivia, and others. Recast Michael, too. Chad is boring. And, if Kelly leaves, recast Britt. Instead, keep in the reccuring mix, Lucy, Kevin, Scott, Bobby, Duke,… Read more »

I was surprised that Helena spilled, especially since the spoilers didn’t really indicate such. I hope it isn’t “false” hope that the Jason s/l’s picking up speed. I thought BM & CT sizzled w/chemistry. I loved the refrained Helena vs. OTT Helena, too. Now THIS is closer to the BM I know & love. Of course he will outsmart Helena, hopefully sooner rather than later. We must get some love or heat going between somebody on this show! Might as well be Jason and Sam.

My concentration capacity is tapped out with this s/l, although it’s fun, I’very long ago given up guessing Fluke’s identity, ALMOST. I, too, feel it could be Bill Eckert, except it shifted to STEFAN CASSADINE Friday, since he hated Luke, had a terrible disfigured face from the fire shortly before his 2003 “death”, and Fluke was waxing poetic in that pompous Stefan Cassadine accent… Read more »

Hi Laurie…

I actually feel like Anthony Geary is still not up to par, healthwise. Dunno…his body seems stiff…as if his back is still bothering him. He’s moving…but not with the grace of a cat.

Love the idea of Stefan coming back…but only in the form of Stephen Nichols. But then that wouldn’t work…because if it does turn out to be him he’d be arrested and off the canvas again.

Harry Naysayer here. Well, I am just going to dwell on the positive given it’s the holiday season and really, it has been interesting. 1. Loved seeing Johnny at the end of Friday’s show–he was like seeing the face of the sun parting the dark clouds. A sight for sore eyes he was for sure. 2. Yes indeed–Tony Geary is simply a brilliant actor who shows without telling. We don’t have to be told he’s Fluke, he shows us without telling us through his vocal intonations and physical mannerisms. It’s not in your face, it’s subtle which is why it… Read more »

Honestly I’m so over this s/l. The Fluke mess has gone on too long (I do understand why though with Anthony Geary needing surgery). Considering it feels like just recently we had a good amount of the crazy bad guys all in with that mess surrounding Robin I’m just tired and want to see Jason get his memories back and deal with everything that has happened to him and his family while he was gone.

I think Carlos and Sabrina may be headed out of town–not sorry to see her go. I agree, a LITTLE Helena goes a long way–and there was TOO MUCH Helena Friday. She used the word “action” several times with emphasis–I assumed that was the code word. But is Faison also playing mind control games? Anna was so unnerved. Helena also mentioned the WSB, so it’s still dirty. Does Robert know? What about the new agent? Is he a bad guy? I also noticed Fluke’s change of voice. Must be a hint of some sort. DON’T want Sam back with Jason.… Read more »

i’m loving how things are playing out, and can’t wait for more revelation. It was great to see ” jake” learn he was jason only to have him forget. For me this is the first time Helena is delivering as a villain, she’s being cunning and smart and not just annoying like in past appearances wheres she’s normally all talk but no action. I stll wish the “good” guys would figure things out more quickly or at least be more suspecious instead of just give in to any simple explanation.

Aria, I prefer this Helena, too. She’s much more effective as controlled madness than the OTT villain. I agree the good guys should be smarter. You can be smart and still be outwitted. This is 1 of my biggest frustrations with the current writing, though I do like the writing overall. The reason I must side with Sam here is because Patrick didn’t just not tell her to spare her pain, though that was the latter reason. Initially it was just as much do to the fact that he resents Jason and Robin because she has chosen him over her… Read more »

Laurie…I’m confused by what you said…why would Jake finding Sam and telling her all hurt her? She would be ecstatic to find out he’s still alive..memory or no memory! His first instinct (as opposed to Patrick’s) was completely different…Jake/Jason finding out he has a wife and son…that that’s where he finally learns he belongs…or used to…knowing that this woman was (will be again?) his love and that that little boy is his child.

Anthony, Finola, Anders, Constance, Kelly and Jason. Amazing. I especially want to point out Jason Thompson’s job.

While I concur with you that we have been treated to some of the best performances in a very long time, I must admit that the payoffs have still fallen a bit short for me over last year’s dramatic denouement of Robin reclaiming her family…when Real Luke helped Scorpio and Anna finally rescue their… Read more »

I agree Shay. We rode the roller coaster for Robin’s rescue and return to PC and to be reunited with Patrick and Emma ONLY for her to once again be held “Prisoner” and be off camera, directing.

Yes, maybe Kimberly comes back for the Fluke reveal but we cannot have her leave again or at least the character.

You know what, timmm???? I loved the Robin arc of last year because it brought back so many of the best characters of the past, and from that point of view, her storyline was a success. While I certainly did not approve of her leaving in the manner in which she did, primarily because it ushered in that insipid Sappy pregnancy farce, I am in theory not disturbed by Dr. Scorpio-Drake’s comings and goings. I watched her grow up, but once she morphed into that young woman who bonded with Sonny and Stone, I tuned out…hence, I am not nearly… Read more »

Well I don’t really mind that story has as many holes as Swiss Cheese because it is all being acted so brilliantly that I can overlook the plot, which has become as confusing as the last few seasons of Lost. Sometimes soap watching like life, it isn’t always destination that counts, but enjoying the journey. I don’t think the end game will really be all that satisfying where I will go– wow that was so worth it. But I am enjoying all the great acting including making unbelievable lines, sound believable– that is all I am focusing on.

Friday’s episode was great! I laughed at how absurd it was that Jake/Jason was able to sneak into the PCPD in a mask and kidnap Sam. It just makes the PCPD look inept. I completely forgot about Sabrina-as I do most characters that are on 1-2x a week. Sigh…

@Harry.
Thank you very much Harry. Early closings today…the North Shore, including the Hamptons, are expecting a goodly amount of flooding. Thus, I am home.
I do appreciate your championing me. You say it very eloquently (and I feel the same way) that critiquing the soaps and giving our opinion is a no-no, according to some. It defeats the purpose of these sites which Mr. Fairman so kindly affords us. I love GH, ergo the reason I watch….thank you again…later.

Thank you, Shay…so to speak, is right, as there is no high ground in the Hamptons, Suffolk County…LOL. Off to Radio City, Saturday; so, the sun will finally be shining…thank the Fates. I was so surprised to see the many fans Kelly/Britt has “amassed”. I was aware you like her as I do, but did not expect the outpouring of admiration toward her as an actress. When she first appeared on the scene, as it were, she was not very well received. Also, I actually never saw the coupling of Britt and Nikolas as a good match. His character is… Read more »

And yet, Southampton has survived for centuries! It truly must be sacred–not to mention, beautiful—ground, altitude notwithstanding! Glad to hear you and yours remain safe, CeeCee….the Radio City Music show should certainly put everyone into the Christmas spirit after such gloomy weather!!!! (I have to admit I’m still waiting for my snow…..it has been a mild winter for me, so far!) As for Britt, I mean, Kelly, yes, she certainly did receive a fond farewell from her fans….I was thrilled for the overabundance of affection demonstrated for “The Britch,” but at the same time am still so sad to see… Read more »

I hope it’s “November Sweeps” all the rest of this year and beyond! It’s fabulous!

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.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Remembers Carly Just as She Is Marrying Jason

After nine months of being “Mike”, Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) had a major breakthrough as his memory is all coming back to him now (as the Celine Dion song says), and in the process the Tan-O has burned to the ground, signaling the the probable end to the Nixon Falls arc of the story.

As the story picked-up on Thursday, Nina’s (Cynthia Watros) plot to keep Sonny for herself and away from Carly majorly backfired on her.  Not only does Phyllis (Joyce Guy) now know that Nina lied about “Mike’s” identify the entire time, but Peter August (Wes Ramsey) is running wild and free heading back to Port Charles to claim his baby and Maxie (Kirsten Storms), after setting fire to the building.

Since “Mike” ran in to save Nina and got hit by a beam in the process, he is alone in the burning Tan-O enveloped by flames, but that triggers the beginning of his memory coming back.

Meanwhile, back in Port Charles, Jason (Steve Burton) and Carly (Laura Wright) are at their wedding, with the five family mob bosses present with a plot of their own and everyone wondering if Jarly will say “I do'”.    The two light a candle together for those loved ones no longer with them … ah, Sonny!

Back the burning Tan-O, Sonny is visited by the vision of the real Mike (Max Gail) who tells him it’s time for him to go home now.  A conflicted Sonny tells Mike he is very happy in Nixon Falls with Nina, but Mike tells him he needs to know his past in order to move forward.  When Sonny has flashes of his violent past it frightens him, and he says whatever family he has is better off without him in their lives.

Jax (Ingo Rademacher) tries to text Maxie while still in Nixon Falls with Nina to watch out for Peter, but she is attending and managing Carly and Sonny’s wedding, so she doesn’t pick up the phone!

Inside the Tan-O, Sonny sees a vision of woman, who when she turns and faces him is Carly. While Sonny is lying on the floor and is engulfed in flames and trapped, Mike tells Sonny he can die as “Mike” or live on as the man he truly is, Sonny.  It is then Sonny calls out “Carly!”

So, what did you think of the episode? Do you think Carly and Jason will get married? Will Sonny tells Nina he remembers? What will Nina’s next move be? Are you glad Sonny seems to have his memory back? The episode featured another strong performance by Maurice Benard.  Share your thoughts below.

Briana Nicole Henry on Her Decision to Exit GH: “I Decided It Was Time to Move On”

On Monday’s episode, GH viewers learned that Jordan will need to start dialysis and treatment at a specialty clinic in Albany from kidney damage and suffering renal failure.  But on Tuesday, fans of the ABC daytime drama series learned that Briana Nicole Henry has left the show, all her decision, according to her post on Instagram.

A Daytime Emmy nominee this year in the Outstanding Supporting Actress category, Briana shared the news on her departure expressing: “I suppose it is that time isn’t it. As I celebrated my third year of being on General Hospital yesterday, I also watched my last episode as Jordan Ashford air. People kept asking me how it felt to have ended my time on the show, and it wasn’t until yesterday that it really sank in, as I watched Jordan’s goodbye to her family and knew the tears you saw were real tears between not just colleagues but friends. I decided it was time for me to move on from @generalhospitalabc and I got nothing but love and support from everyone involved. Not to mention was given the most beautiful send of that left me quite literally shaken.  I’d like to take a second to thank every single person in my @generalhospitalabc family that helped me make GH my home over the last three years, especially @fvalentinigh . From the crew, to my cast mates to our security guard Emma, there were multiple people on any given day that brought such a smile and warmth to my heart.”

Briana finished her post with, “When I started GH it was my first opportunity as a series regular, and to get the opportunity to throw myself into Jordan for the last three years and work with some truly incredible actors has been an honor. Thanks for holding space for me to grow. I am a better actor because of the time I spent within those walls and will forever be grateful for the way the show nurtured and challenged my ability.  To the fans, it took me a while to win you over, but once you saw my heart you made me feel so much love. I hope I brought something unique and honest to your beloved character of Jordan Ashford, she’s one helluva woman. Until next time loves 👋🏾.”

This will be the second Jordan to exit General Hospital.  The role was originated by Vinessa Antoine, and Henry took it over for the last three years.

So, sad to see Briana leave GH? Should the show recast? Comment below.
