GENERAL HOSPITAL: Carly Admits To Sonny She Was Falling Back In Love with Jason

Courtesy/ABC

On Friday’s episode of General Hospital, Carly (Laura Wright) and Sonny (Maurice Benard) finally had the “talk”.  You know, the one about what Sonny really walked in on the night he “returned from the dead” on Carly and Jason’s (Steve Burton) wedding night?  Yeah, that one.

Sonny has already had a conversation with Jason, where Jason admitted he was starting to fall again for Carly, even though they were originally getting married to show a united front for the five families.

Now coming to confront Carly, Sonny is at first greeted by her with “Mike’s” cowboy hat, where she says the man he was in Nixon Falls is a mystery to her. Sonny tells her he spoke with Jason and so Carly is compelled to admit that she and Jason would have slept together on their wedding night, if Sonny hadn’t shown up alive and in the bedroom!

Sonny’s clearly upset about his best friend and his wife getting so close and rekindling their old feelings. Carly tells Sonny that, at first, Jason and she were just going through with the wedding for show, but later, they decided to make it a real marriage, and were falling in love.

When Sonny poses the question to Carly, if she has any residual feelings for Jason, she says they have gone back to being best friends, and how much she loves Sonny.  Carly points out that Nina (Cynthia Watros) did this to them – she kept them apart for nine months – and so much has happened that it’s been difficult for them to be together as it was in the past because of it.

In the end, despite what Nina had perpetrated on them, Carly and Sonny come to an agreement that they need to rebuild their relationship.  But the cowboy hat looms as we fade to black.

Clearly, the Jason and Carly relationship and almost consummating it on their wedding night, is not sitting well with Sonny; plus Sonny seems to continue to not really tear into Nina for her deception as much as someone would if he didn’t also have feelings for her.

So, what do you hope happens next? Do you want Sonny and Carly to work things out? Do you hope Sonny sleeps with Nina? If he does, and Jason goes back to Britt (now that they are going on another adventure together to locate Liesl) is Carly ultimately the odd woman out?  Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.

The story doesn’t work for me because of how much Sonny is overlooking the type of woman Nina was before Nixon Falls what she did to Ava regarding his daughter Avery, etc Sonny the family man should never want to be with a woman that kept him knowingly from his kids & Carly. Carly & Jason tried to talk themselves into being in love. Jason & Britt have tons of chemistry & I hope Carly/Sonny fall even more in love causing delusional Nina to finally go over the edge.

I can answer all these questions with a firm “I don’t care.” Yeah, I’d like Britt to get a break in the romance dept., but she deserves better than to play second fiddle to Queen Carly. And no, I don’t want Sonny or Mike to hookup with Nina either. This story is like a desiccated orange.. all the life was drained out months ago.

I want Jarly. They have been endgame since 1999. But if they do a Brittstop on the way to Jarly, I’ll just cross my fingers for an immediate death to Carson. Carly should drop the Corinthos name and start a Spencer revival. Go into business with Ms. Wu :):)

Carly confessing is the direction the story is going to have Sonny and Nina doing the nasty, finally.
I liked Nina and Sonny/Mike it was a breath of fresh air.
Carly and Sonny had worn out long ago. yawn–
About time for a great shake-up..
But the end game will be Sonny and Carly, no doubt about that happening, sigh..
* Out with the old in with the new.*
it’s desperately needed for my viewing pleasure ..

I don’t know how it will work out but I really don’t want to see Nina and Carly in an actual fight over this Napoleonesque man. I like Sonny, but God’s gift to women, he’s not. If I was forced at gunpoint to pick he or Mike, it would be Mike and the ladies that agree will know why.
Sorry if I didn’t use the word Napoleonesque correctly, so feel free to let me know.

Violet…I don’t know if you used the word right but I’m for team Mike. But let’s wait and see how “Mike” actually changes Sonny, who was never God’s gift to me. But as long as he is a mobster I want Nina to stay away from him. Don’t want her to try to “fix” him.

rose,
I do understand what you are saying, but let’s face it, Sonny is not going anywhere and I do believe he and Nina will see more of each other and he will most likely feel more like Mike when he is with her. Who knows, eventually he may just like it better being Mike and quit the mob altogether.

My theory about the whole “Mike” thing is that Sonny didn’t know who he was, but subconsciously, he was playing his own father. The name “Mike” is an obvious clue, of course. But he was also happy being a bartender…. as the real Mike was most of his life in Port Charles. And when Lenny & Phyllis were in financial jeopardy, “Mike’s” first impulse was “hey, where’s a card game, I’ll get you the money”. Gambling, was the real Mike’s favorite past time, of course. Though he wasn’t always successful at it. Of course, Sonny had some of his own… Read more »

Violet, Rose, I don’t know how long you’ve been watching the show; Sonny’s handsome now, but back in the day, he was FINE! And “Mike” was always a part of Sonny, it’s just with years of terrible writers we didn’t see him very often. But the “Mike” part of Sonny was the romantic that made good women like Brenda, Alexis, Connie/Kate and Olivia fall for him and the loving, generous, heartfelt “Mike” is why good girl Robin will always love and be loyal to Sonny. “Mike” is the one that took a kid of the street, gave him a home… Read more »

I forgot to say that I really couldn’t believe Carly today when she told Sonny how long and hard they searched for him. For what, all of a week maybe,?

I was glad Carly and Jason admitted where their feelings were taking them on their wedding night to Sonny in record time for a soap instead of dragging this part of the story out. I want Jason with Brit. Not sure about Sonny and Nina because I think it has to be Mike to make them work. But I think there is still room for some kind of relationship. As for Sonny and Carly, they might stay together, but they will never be the same. And as Diana said, “there was always three in our marriage.”

This is definitely NOT the most interesting storyline on GH right now. With the Drew and Liesl abductions, they’ve somehow snuck in a compelling umbrella storyline that involves at least a dozen characters. This should be the lead story right now. Cameron Mathison (and his abs) are a welcome edition as Drew. The end of the stalker storyline is also more interesting. Maura West has helped elevate Nicholas Chavez’s performance. Mark Teschner (as usual) did a great job casting Spencer and Esme. Time to move along the Portia/Curtis and Brando/Sasha stories. Although they come across nicely as a couple, Brando… Read more »

The new Spenser is a find, for sure but I still cannot feel comfortable with NuNick. Esme is fantastic. This actress owns every scene she is in! Personally, I think she is Ryan’s daughter.

Satan

Definitely Ryan’s daughter. Now they just have to make a plausible case for who her mother would be. I’m guessing Alex Devane. Since both she and Ryan once worked for the “DVX” (the GH version of the KGB) they probably knew each other. Esme could easily pass as Finola Hughes’ daughter.

Unfortunately this would also make her Whiny Heiny’s half-sister, and the last thing that idiot needs is more family ties.

I wouldn’t miss them either, but they better take that horrible Gladys with them. I’d never leave her alone with my baby , grandmother or not.

I’d like to see Gladys and Carly trapped in a limo for an hour with Gladys constantly getting on Carly’s nerves. That’s the only reason to keep the character on.

Love or hate her, Bonnie Burroughs as Gladys definitely has presence.

I loved how honest Carly and Jason were with Sonny about their feelings and their intentions. This rarely happens on a soap. What was really cool is the stories were told separately and they matched. These three are close and anything other than being honest to each other wouldn’t have jived with who these three are. Its a soap and Nina is also included in this variable so something bad is bound to happen. I just want Jason to be with Britt. Sonny and Carly will always find their way back to each other.

I love this story! I think they are playing all the beats and mining it for all it’s worth instead of “Oh, Sonny’s back. Now we can return to normal.” No you can’t. Normal was shot to pieces when Nina kept her secret all those months ago. There’s nine months of story for these characters to process. That doesn’t disappear in two days. I think everyone is doing a great job playing the fall out. And as a bonus, I’m so happy Phyllis is in PC. Hope she stays.

I do and have always loved Olivia. I’ve never seen her turn away from a problem or compound one as she has been lately. First with Ned who has been bending over backwards to make amends for his indescretion with Alex. I understand why she doesn’t want to accept the idea that her child could be Autistic, but she has to be blind to not see that her son has a problem. She is such a smart and insightful woman, but I want to just shake her. Also, why hasn’t Monica noticed anything strange about Theo, especially in contrast to… Read more »

Kin Shriner Celebrates 45-Year Milestone as General Hospital’s Scott Baldwin

What would General Hospital be without Kin Shriner, who has always played Scott Baldwin to the hilt with unique style and acting chops? Today on August 2nd, Kin marks his 45th anniversary with the ABC daytime drama series, and the series just would never be the same without his four decades plus of performances, making him an enduring fan favorite.

Shriner debuted on GH back on this date in 1977.  Scott’s love story with Laura (Genie Francis) would begin to set a new trajectory for GH. Later, when Laura married Luke (Tony Geary) in 1981, and Scott made a shocking appearance at the reception and caught the bouquet, the character turned to the dark side which started a new era of story for Scott/Laura/Luke and more.

Scott is the stepson of attorney, Lee Baldwin (the late Peter Hansen) and Dr. Gail Adamson (the late Susan Brown); although through the years they tangled over differences, the family loved and cared for one another.

In more recent years, Scott’s legal eagle courtroom antics are always a must-see for viewers, as well as any time Shriner gets to show Scott’s emotional side, such as the time he learned his son Franco (Roger Howarth) had died.

Kin’s scenes with his current on-screen love interest, Kathleen Gati (Liesl) are always a delight for GH fans, as well.

In addition to his General Hospital run, Shriner appeared as Scott in the GH spinoff; Port Charles from 1997-2000 and again in 2001.

General Hospital’s Maura West Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

On last Thursday and Friday’s episode of General Hospital, the ABC soap opera finally moved the story forward with the reveal to Ava (Maura West) that Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Esme (Avery Pohl) slept together, and within it, fans got to witness the beginning of the fallout and the reaction as played by three-time Daytime Emmy-winner and enduring fan favorite, Maura West.

As one might expect, the material in the hands of the mighty West, and the acting choices she makes are always intriguing and masterful.

In story, things start to unravel for Ava, when outside Trina’s (Tabyana Ali) courtroom trial, Esme and Ava have a confrontation.  It is there that Esme snarks at Ava, that she has the ability to destroy her world.  When Ava dares her to try, Nikolas shows up on the scene begging Esme to stop.  However, a manipulative Esme says, “Too late, I’m ending this right here, right now.” After lighting the fire, Esme walks off telling Nikolas to have a nice chit chat with his wife.

Next, Ava and Nikolas go to a private office, and Nikolas tells her that he made a huge mistake. A now suspicious Ava, asks, “What kind of mistake?” Nikolas then goes on to explain how he slept with Esme, just once, when he thought his relationship with Ava had tanked and had suffered irreparable damage.

What comes after was where West shined, as a sarcastic Ava quipped, “Poor you, seduced by a high school graduate.”  Ava, then launches into that she thought she married a man, but instead she married a spineless weakling, and now she is going to burn him to the ground.

Later at Wyndemere, as Esme is frantically packing her suitcase and taking with her the all-important envelope linking her to Ryan (Jon Lindstrom), Ava appears and a confrontation begins with Ava calling out Esme as a, “conniving little whore”. Esme flaps back that Ava slept with both Morgan and Sonny (Maurice Benard)! Having put two and two together, Ava says she know that Esme is responsible for the revenge sex tape of Cameron (Willian Lipton) and Joss (Eden McCoyand setting fire to her car.

Courtesy/ABC

Ava has wised up from all of Esme’s nasty statements and has come to realize that everything Esme has done including sleeping with Nikolas, feels like a targeted, planned attack on her, and she knows there is more to this story than Esme has ever let on.  When Ava spots the envelope in Esme’s suitcase, she goes to get it, but Esme grabs it from her. Then, with a steely warning, Ava tells Esme that she will be going to the courthouse now to exonerate Trina, and if she doesn’t, Ava will make sure Esme disappears and no one will ever be able to find her alive.

Now, while some viewers may be waiting for a knock-down drag-out catfight, we don’t know what will happen on Monday or Tuesday’s episode, but sometimes it’s more delicious just letting the words and its intentions drive the action, and West delivered the goods in spades in scenes with Marcus Coloma and Avery Pohl.

For all the reasons stated above, Michael Fairman TV names Maura West’s work as The Power Performance of the Week.

What did you think of Maura’s performance in the scenes where Ava finds out Nikolas slept with Esme and Ava’s confrontation later with Esme? What do you hope happens next?  Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section.  But firstm check out some moments from West’s performance below.
