General Hospital Live Day Two: Carlos Dead, Nina Weds & Nikolas Silences Hayden!

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

On Monday’s second episode of General Hospital Live there were plenty of plot developments and fantastic performances and only some very minor technical issues on the version we watched on the west coast.

First as the pick-up from Friday’s episode, Anna Devane (Finola Hughes) made sure she shot Carlos Rivera  (Jeffrey Vincent Parise) dead, this time plugging him with multiple bullets!  It was the end of the line for actor Jeffrey Vincent Parise who made Carlos such a memorable character.  Once again, Finola Hughes delivered a top notch performance as Anna comes to realize she just exacted revenge for the death of her beloved Duke (Ian Buchanan), but at what cost?  Later, Sloane (Grayson McCouch) finds her on the pier and says he will help her cover up the crime!

Meanwhile, the answer to who’s behind the door is revealed, when none other than Ric Lansing (Rick Hearst)is the groom set to marry Nina (Michelle Stafford) the bride, much to the chagrin of Franco (Roger Howarth).   While Nina and Ric’s out of the blue relationship is thrown in Franco’s face, Roger Howarth, during the live show, gave a nuanced and stellar performance while trying to talk Nina out of a making a big mistake and to marry him instead.  When the minister arrives to marry Nina, he asks which gent is the groom?  Ultimately, Nina marries Ric!  Say what?

Hayden (Rebecca Budig) is at Julian garage where Jake (Billy Miller) works and is about to tell him and Sam (Kelly Monaco), his real identity!  But Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) who is becoming more unglued is begging Nikolas (Tyler Christopher) to silence Hayden if he ever had feelings for her!  Liz hitting with some low blows to keep Jake AKA Jason!

Elsewhere, Sonny (Maurice Benard) has ordered a hit on Jake for “killing” Duke, and in great scenes featuring Laura Wright as Carly, she begs Sonny not to kill Jake, but Sonny informs her its too late.  Shawn (Sean Blakemore) left an hour ago to do the deed.  Only as Shawn went to fire on Jake, there is another gunshot and Hayden gets hit and takes a bullet to the head!  The police and Jordan (Vinessa Antoine) find Shawn outside the garage and arrest him.  Shawn and Jordan have the moment of truth, where he figures out she is a cop!

Courtesy/ABC

When Hayden is wheeled into GH, Elizabeth, who is on duty, sees her as well as Sam and Jake , who tell Liz that Hayden was about to tell them something about Jake’s true identity.  Liz is not happy!

Cut to Nikolas and a hit man who tells the dark prince that all was taken care of.  Hayden was silenced and the police think  Shawn Butler did it!  Nikolas says this truth can never come to light!

The closing credits this episode are given to the audience by the very energetic and cute Nicholas Bechtel (Spencer Cassadine) who dances around the set showing the cue cards of the producers, writers, and the director of today’s episode.

So, what did you think of GH Live day two? Did you like the stories?  What do you think about scheming Nikolas and Elizabeth?  Nina’s wedding to Ric?  Carlos dying?  Shawn getting framed and taken into custody?  Which performances did you enjoy the most?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

Okay, Michael. There were more than a few minor technical glitches in this episode. You can tell that actor Jeffrey Vincent Parise (ex-Carlos) has something very square sewn into his shirt pretty much where his heart is……..a blood patch. That was way too obvious! I knew what it was right away. And then at the beginning, when they were airing what was going on on Friday’s episode, you can tell from the picture on the screen that it was from tape to live when I saw this glaring line between both episodes appear as it went from tape to live.… Read more »

If the bullets that Shawn fired didn’t hit Hayden, how would the hit man’s? Shawn was firing through a small crack in the door and standing in front of it. How would he have shot past Shawn and through the opening? Nik tells Liz it’s only a matter of time that people find out that Jake is Jason, so he tries to kill Hayden to stop her from exposing the secret that he thinks will come out anyway? That doesn’t make much sense. I guess it could be that he needs more time for whatever he’s doing with ELQ, but… Read more »

AJQ, re: the shooter of Hayden. Did you notice there is another door in the Garage? That’s the door Shawn surprised Jake when JuliAnne came to see him a couple weeks ago. So, maybe Nik’s Hitman was creeping up in there. Where did the bullet hit Hayden in the head? What direction was she facing when Shawn’s gun went off?

CeeCee
Guest
CeeCee

We already know that Nikolas’ hitman’s bullet was the one to hit Hayden. In yesterday’s episode, the hit man said to Nikolas…and I am paraphrasing here…” Shawn didn’t even realize his bullet did not hit Hayden”.
Good post, Michael.

I thought it was a great episode, Finola Hughes was outstanding as Anna (as always).
I really do hope that that is not the last we see of Hayden, I was loving seeing Rebecca Budig on GH and I hope we get to see her continue on the show.

Lew, Jason will be furious with her. But what I really hate is that you know Carly will be caterwauling self-righteously in Lizzy’s face while wraggling her finger at her.
The terrible thing is Carly will be right to be all red faced with anger.
I hate that Lizzy did this.

It is ridiculous, but Liz does ridiculous things sometimes. I don’t mind her not telling yet; that is plausible. Having her become instantly psychotic ala Nina is what’s off with the story. The writers are simply ignoring the character and trying to give the audience a reason to accept Jake reuniting with Sam. The same goes for Nicholas. He’s willing to kill a person for Liz because he loves her so much, but he wasn’t willing to break up with Brit? I usually keep quiet about Cartini because I’m so grateful to them for saving GH, but really. The next… Read more »

Dear I Love GH. I don’t think Nikolas put out a hit on Hayden out of this great love he harbors for Lizzy. I think he did it because the Jason reveal would hurt his plans to take over ELQ.
That is why his behavior is so out of character and heinous.

Lee s I’m not going to hate on you but I like Elisabeth I will only say that the same argument your making on Liz can be made on Carly and Sam the other two women in Jason’s life so I guess it boils down to who your rooting for jason to be with. At this point I’m going for Liz.

I also hope he kicks Liz to the curb, but my fear is she’ll be pregnant. Isn’t she always? And I just don’t know what to make of Nikolas completely becoming Darth Vadar in his inexplicable turn to the dark side. Did Helena plant a chip in his brain too?

Not digging the new lows that Nikolas is hitting with all the lying to take over ELQ (like he needs more money?) , sleeping with essentially a stranger who he later ordered a hit on. This guy has always come across as unemotional. The last time I feel he added anything to the show was when he was way younger, in the Luke and Laura days. He character and storylines seem very lost. Things got better for a while when Brit was around – he did show some emotional there.

Loved the ending of the East Coast version- Nicolas/’Spencer’ dancing with the crew member (nice to see him acting like a real kid instead of a rich snob) and Billy Miller’s shout-out to his mom (I’m a mom myself so that truly warmed my heart!). It was also nice to see Tyler Christopher being goofy after that fade-out of evil Nikolas. I really liked how Jake instinctively protected Sam- hoping we see more of ‘Jason’ before the actual reveal. The whole Nina/Franco/Ric wedding was the worst part IMO. The explanation was lame and the whole storyline was lame. It frustrates… Read more »

Live #2 HORRIBLE! Anna gunned Carlos down like he was a rabid dog! Yes, he killed Duke but Julian who killed their baby is still living large! Case NOT closed and now we have Sloan who is going to cover it up. You have two clean cops in town in Dante and Nathan. They cannot even write a parking ticket. You got Anna and Sloan who are capable and they are crooked! Carly is the best detective PC has! That Nina wedding was one of the WORST things I’ve seen on TV in a long time!

Timm–you usually applaud GH so your dissatisfaction speaks volumes about what an epic disaster day two was. And it has nothing to do with it being live. It was bad writing, plain and simple.

@ I love GH, Hi, I love GH. I soooo agree with you. The PTB want Jake and Sam together , thus they must use whatever means to achieve that goal. So far, it is working….at least for me. She is the biggest disappointment. She falls under the label, BESMIRCHED reputation to me, now. I had a fresh start with Liz when I joined the GH fan-group, as it were. I came knowing nothing about anyone. I fell in love with Elizabeth’s character…..I saw pretty, puffy clouds, butterflies, flowers swerving and dancing daintily surrounding her and a halo on her… Read more »

Totally agree, the live shows were horrible, especially the ridiculous wedding which made absolutely no sense. Roger Howarth is the only reason I bother to watch GH and they have virtually destroyed him as Franco. I was on the bandwagon cheering Franco and NIna to become a soap super couple–and was hoping the wedding fiasco was somehow a bad dream. Unfortunately, it was a bona fide nightmare. Apparently, there is some speculation that Roger may be paired with the returning Genie Francis’ Laura (maybe a last ditch effort by Carlivati to script his “happy ending” for Franco) First, Carly cheats… Read more »

I am sorely disappointed in Michelle’s stint on GH. She is so talented and what a misuse of her capabilities! Roger has been on longer and after his character Todd was taken away he has been lost. I did enjoy his Halloween “Wedding” but he has too much talent to be misused. I hope your right about Roger and Genie. NEVER thought of them to together but wouldnt Scott hit the roof if his own son stole Laura away from him to!

Great show, stellar cast. Loved Nicholas (Spencer) at the end; he looked as though he was having a blast-such a cute, talented kid. Tired of the same ol’ with Sonny and Carly. Seriously, Carly-Sonny putting a hit on Jake is going beyond crossed lines? Sonny accidently shooting you while giving birth to Morgan, Michael being sent to prison, Sonny sleeping with Morgan’s girlfriend, all of the lies and affairs; this is a line he shouldn’t cross? As much as I love Sonny-total narcissist who takes no responsibility for any of his actions-always the victim. Too bad that we didn’t see… Read more »

I had a feeling Nicolas was up to something but didn’t want to implicate Liz…when he said she needed to trust him that he’s taking care of it…Nicolas has turned to the dark Cassadine side which I stated a while back; the hurt, betrayal, disappointment he’s felt from loss….his mom, Stefan, Courtney, Emily, betraying Lucky, Britt…twice…. Like Elizabeth, each feels cheated of happiness and are going to do whatever they can to get it. From the minute he concealed Jason’s true identity and started scheming to take over ELQ he was a changed man. Attempted murder? I don’t know how… Read more »

Hayden left spur of the moment, and Nicholas didn’t leave Liz’s side.

Oh…and Nina/Rick? That was possibly the most inane scene I’ve ever watched. Annoying, uninteresting and ridiculous.

Monday’s LIVE show trumped Friday’s, Roger, Rick, Michelle, Tyler, Laura, Maurice, Kelly, Billy, and Finola stellar performances. Evenly distributed between the preposterously funny wedding scenario, Marriage a’ trois anyone, anyone… To Nik’s low key acceptance of Hayden’s will she, won’t she, spit it out already… Confessional. What’s Gen without a well deserved shoot out “BANG, BANG, I SHOT YOU DOWN, BANG, BANG, YOU HIT THE GROUND BANG, BANG”, Carrrr-LOST because he brought his big Mouth to a gun fight.

I guess its a testament to the acting but I wouldn’t have known it was live or not.

However, good acting doesn’t negate the bad storylines. The mob war is tired, Nina and Franco are tired, Jake/Jason is tired.

Overall I liked both LIVE shows. However, I was really annoyed with the way Nina’s dress kept getting in her way and her Stepford-wife-like hand motions that reminded me of a hand model. I guess that was supposed to be funny, but I’m such a fan of Nina and Franco together that the whole thing irritating. The story line really jilted me. Other than that, good job to everyone involved. I will miss seeing Carols on the show; Jeffrey is a really great actor.

Look out! I have put my cranky pants back on. Day Two was a disaster of Titanic-like proportions. Not only was it horrifically written, it was horrifically acted. Nina, Franco and Rick! Oh my! What was that? A poor man’s interpretation of The Three Stooges? I don’t have the words. Now there seems to be a nasty case of SD (Sonny Disease) transpiring in the town of Port Charles. Nikolas, who has always been polite to a fault, a gentleman and a scholar, puts out a hit on a woman with whom he has been having sex? That is so… Read more »

@Harry….Speaking of “Titanic,” I find it to be no small coincidence it was cited as the CrayClay’s favorite movie, since MS’s utter failure, otherwise known as the “SS Nina,” is sinking faster than the mighty ship itself! (…With the characters of Franco and Ric aboard in the bargain……)

Liked everything except the absolutely ridiculous Nina/Rick wedding. There was no back story or lead up to this pairing at all. I had to fast forward through their scenes. It seems as though they quickly cooked up this s/l for the sole purpose of the three actors appearing on the live shows. It was the most terrible thing I’ve ever seen on a soap, and I’ve seen plenty.

But I’m sad the direction they are taking certain characters, why would nikolas bother putting out a hit on Hayden when he can easily have her vanish to an island like he did with grandma Helena? Or come up with something else, he’s rich and powerful I’m sure money can buy something better then a hit to kill someone, it was just a bad turn for this character and Elisabeth becoming desperate and… Read more »

I assume there’s a point to the wedding–there has to be. Clearly Nina is nuts, Rick must have an ulterior motive and Roger is must the most amazing actor. I have long said I still think Helena is doing something to Nikolas and hopefully Laura’s arrival will do something about that. Anna was grieving & Carlos deserved to die, so whatever…And Sloan and Anna had way better rapport on Monday’s show than Friday’s. (He was weird Friday) I can’t take what they’re doing to Elizabeth.

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Comes Home as Jason and Carly Begin Their Wedding Night

Monday’s episode of General Hospital continued to set the stage for major payoffs in the long and winding road tale of everyone in Port Charles believing Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) is dead.

Only now, with his memory in tact, Sonny is very much alive, no longer living as “Mike” in Nixon Falls. and back in the town which he ruled as the mob kingpin.  Problem is: his wife, Carly (Laura Wright) just got married to his best friend, Jason (Steve Burton) and they are about to have their first night together as newlyweds.  And without all the subplot and subtext, Sonny has no idea that they were first brought together to be a united front to save Sonny’s territory from the ‘Five Families’.  Only now, the two have admitted they truly are in-love with each other.

In story, after the bomb that went off was proven to kill mobsters Buscema and Novak, and not its intended target – the newlyweds – thanks to a double-cross from Ms. Wu – Jason, Carly, and Ms. Wu discuss Cyrus Renault’s (Jeff Kober) involvement and that Wu is happy for Jason and Carly.

 

At the wedding reception, Michael (Chad Duell) gives a touching speech about his mom and Jason and gives the official toast.  Later, Jason and Carly head out after Carly throws the bouquet which Willow (Katelyn MacMullen) catches.

Meanwhile, back in Nixon Falls, Sonny gets out of dodge and away from Nina (Cynthia Watros), thanks to Jax’s (Ingo Rademacher) plane, while Nina gets a visit from Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) and Anna (Finola Hughes), where she admits that Peter (Wes Ramsey) was in Nixon Falls, and caused the fire, and is going to go after Maxie (Kirsten Storms) and the baby.  She does not tell them what she did keeping Sonny away from his family for 9 months.

Anna and Peter split up to find Peter, and Peter’s exit ride hasn’t show up yet to get him out of Nixon Falls, so Anna catches him, gun drawn.

Later at the Corinthos home, Jason and Carly are alone together in the bedroom with wedding night jitters, but Jason says there is no rush as the two kiss, just as Sonny arrives home, smiles, looks around, sees photos of himself with Carly and the family, and heads upstairs!

Will Sonny find the two in each others arms and not tell then he is alive?  Will something call him away? Will Jason and Carly have sex? When will Nina get payback for all that she has done to Carly and Sonny?  Will Peter get away from Anna? Let us know your theories in the comment section below.

General Hospital

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.

Courtesy/ABC

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.

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.
