The celebration begins quite early tomorrow when we ring in General Hospital’s 50th anniversary in a unique way! Monday morning several GH cast members, along with executive producer Frank Valentini and head writer Ron Carlivati, will visit The New York Stock Exchange and ring The Opening Bell at promptly 9:30AM EST!

Joining in the festivities and the honor will be: Finola Hughes (Anna), Jason Thompson (Patrick), Kelly Monaco (Sam), Tony Geary (Luke), Genie Francis (Laura) and Kin Shriner (Scott).  You can watch the Livestream of The Opening Bell ceremonies by clicking here!

Honoring its 50 years on the air,  General Hospital is the longest running American soap opera currently in production, plus the longest running scripted drama on television currently in production.  The show has aired well over 12,000 episodes and has was won the Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Drama Series a record eleven times!

What do you think about GH being given the honor to ring the bell at The New York Stock Exchange in honor of their milestone?  Let us know!

Wow, thats gotta be a first! ABC should go totally out of busines if theyd cancel GH anytime soon and all other networks, cable ect. would be even bigger fools not to pick the show up unless the ratings drop drastically and the show is not repairable. And if the show does get canned eventually, id like to see these two men do a primetime updated version of Peyton Place or create a show of their own. Congratulations to all!!!

Will June Lochart make an appearance for the shows 50th or was her char. killed off?
I know shes in her 80s now. What about Roseanne Barr in a return cameo as Jennifer Smith? Helene could use her appearance to torture Luke, and some soap viewers? lol. And bring back Holly!

For the NYSE to take note-this is huge-they don’t exactly hand invites out…

I agree. Last year when the Girl Scouts of America celebrated the 100th birthday they got to observe it at the NYSE too. The public likes to make soaps, especially daytime ones, seem small. This proves how huge an impact GH has had on our culture.

Well it sounded like a great day until you mentioned Ron was going to be there. Great producer and actors. Mediocre head writer. Hardly the type of person I’d want front and center to show up for anything besides the opening of a letter.

Wow. You can thank that “mediocre” writer for saving your beloved GH from cancellation. #truthhurts

So sick of people saying RC is a bad or “mediocre” writer. I’d like to know whom among them writes for anything but Twitter, FB or comments sections. RC and FV along with terrific actors saved GH and have brought it back from near death. 50th annniversary extravaganza, NYSE, Paley Center, 20/20 spot and just plain great soapy-soap episodes show how talented Ron and Frank are. Poo on all the rest of you who are compelled to criticize

That is so cool! Love all the accolades that GH is rightfully receiving! So , soaps are becoming obsolete, eh , ABC/D? You’re looking pretty foolish now, especially with all of the joyous support of AMC’s and OLTL’s return!

I think it is awesome that GH gets to celebrate this important milestone
with the world by ringing in the opening bell at the NYSE. I didn’t think the
anniversary would be so closely followed until lately when I have been reading more plans to honor and celebrate my favorite soap. Keep up the great work.

OK, I’ve just seen the live broadcast, but who was that kid with the GH gang- Finola’s son? Also, it was strange to see Tony Geary in glasses AND a tie! I couldn’t help but notice that Genie Francis was next to Kin Shriner on the left, and Tony was all the way on the right-hmmmmm……

That’s fun! so I take it they had to go to NY to do so…. now if OLTL were still in NY they could have rung in their 44th!

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

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.
