General Hospital Serves Up CarSon Montage! Carly Prays For Sonny's Recovery & Recalls Their Journey!

Courtesy/ABC

On Monday’s episode of ABC’s General Hospital, fans of Sonny and Carly as played by Maurice Benard and Laura Wright, were treated to a recollection of scenes and moments since Wright has played the love of Sonny’s life.

Over the years and during Wright’s tenure in the role, Sonny and Carly really never got as close as they are now about to be remarried.  However gun shots intervened and now instead of exchanging vows, Carly is praying that Sonny will live to see another day.

When sitting in the hospital chapel, Carly recalls their stormy and romantic journey which led them to the place they are now.  And in the end, Carly still vows to be with Sonny and that they were meant to be with each other.

Courtesy/ABC

To illustrate the journey, the GH producers culled clips from past scenes of fights, sex, weddings, emotion, and more between the duo.  It was clear the magic that Benard and Wright have created, and how Sonny and Carly have always been in each others orbit, had each others back, and loved their children, no matter what was going on in their lives and around them.

Now after the jump watch the CarSon montage. Let us know what you thought of the clip package and what has been your favorite moment through the years between Benard and Wright’s Carly?

At least Maurice let GH show clips! Tony Geary, shame on you! No but I was more focused on the three sons at Sonny’s bed side. I thought Morgan’ s scenes sucked, not bad for Dante and Michael pulled off the most emotional bed side visit. Chad is too light and fluffy to be Michael but he rises in big scenes. BTW, Michael E. Knight just signed with Y&R. He reminds me of an older Chad Duell.

Hi, Timmm. I agree about the brothers 3. Very well done, Timmm…perfect depiction. I think Morgan is acting like a lunatic. However, could this be done purposely by the writers? You know, show the extent of Morgan’s mental disorder? I am not enjoying his acting right now….it is forced; it is not smoothly executed as his previous scene with Sonny was. Dante was great …..natural…believable. Michael? I still can’t get passed the switch from resentful anger to loving son to a man who not only killed his bio father, but the man who kept him from AJ all his life.… Read more »

After the Metro Court siege and Sonny helped Carly bathe in the tub..I loved Laura Wright as Cassie on GL and that GH scene cemented her as a viable replacement in the role of Carly.

Every time Snorebrina walks into a scene she sucks the life out of it. However, when she showed up at the hospital with a fresh change of cloths for Michael, I thought that was sweet. BTW, why isnt Olivia at the hospital? She and Sonny have history and they recently talked and were civil. Plus, she is Dante’s mother and his dad is fighting for his life!

We disagree but thats okay. I respect your choices. One thing I see with Morgan is they seem to be shoving bi polar down are throats very quickly. His past actions have clued us in on him possibly having this disease. Him being obnoxious in the hospital and lashing out on everyone doesnt help Carly and his dad is lying there “Dying.’ Save the over the top stuff if Sonny dies or if Julian taunts him. And Ric never did anything to Morgan. I know he released Charlie but it was through Jordan AND Sonny was a fool for going… Read more »

There a many mental disorders.
Morgan may not be bipolar and simply is just cray cray lol
Body chemicals can go wacko, the guy needs a pill.
He is mentally ill and mentally ill people do very crazy things that is what they do, go bonkers lol
anyways= it is soap and soapy type drama ..

Timm, I do agree. Morgan is suddenly acting all shrill goofy and his behavior is not indicative of bipolar disorder. He is quite simply acting like a Jackass.

It’s ridiculous how they try to spin Sonny and Carly’s “romance”. Sonny’s TRUE love is and always will be Brenda Barrett. When the show ends, he will go off into the sunset with BRENDA!!!

I feel like Carly is so much better suited to Sonny now, Brenda is a children’s rights advocate, for crying out loud! The mob life is not for her and her son. Unless Sonny has a huge sea change, “sees the light” so to speak, I cannot see Brenda wanting to be with him ever again.

I like Sonny and Carly but i prefer Jax with Carly (with Layra as Carly)….. And then there is MY couple that i will never get 🙁 but i want since forever: Jason and Carly! Their story is way deeper than friends, i remember how Jason was hurt by Sonny and Carly’s betrayal…. He took Micheal as is son and i always dreamed that in the end, he would be his real father.

That’s what my heart has longed for…Sonny & Brenda. In the end
they should come full circle… It’s the romantic in me that still wants
them together. Maurice and Vanessa have unbelievable chemistry
that obviously spills over unto their characters.. What can I say the
heart wants what the heart wants… Carly is better & smarter w/ Jax.

Sonny’s wedding vows were perfect n loved how they had Sonny say them!!! I’m so glad they went all the way back to 2005 for flashback clips. Sonny n Carly fans have waited 10 yrs for this reunion!!! This shows how CarSon through all the ups n downs are meant to be, soulmates n end game!!!

Hi, Sarah. I admire your sentiments and romantic heart…I really do. We all love a good passionate story with breathtaking romance. But, the romance between Carly and Sonny, as I understand it , has the unfortunate history of chipping away at the edges and riddled with festering holes. Repeating wedding vows to the same person five times becomes redundant and moot, when said bows are not met or kept. It is like making the same mistake over and over again. Sonny’s vows lose their meaning…it’s a joke, really. Carly is so much more believable. She was great today. But, I… Read more »

@CeeCee….
Isn’t that a true sign of insanity…. Doing the same thing over and
over again, hoping for a different outcome..so we see insanity

was cheating on Jax with Sonny…Jax was by far her best mate.

@Fanny. I am just in love with your always jovial personality. As with Shay, Timmm and several more posting-friends, I feel I’ve known you forever. You ARE the sweet one. Poor Morgan. So, his parents have been dancing this dance for decades, it seems. I suppose Sonny is not the only one with the mental disorder. Carly does not sound of being in her right mind herself……to subject herself and, more importantly, her children through the insanity. Going away to boarding school has nothing to do with it. I have five siblings (same parents.Lol); we all attended boarding school (… Read more »

Cee Cee, I do agree. I also see Carly as Sonny’s chief enabler just as Nikki is Victor’s from Y&R.
The enabling of bad behavior on both of the characters’ parts is redundant, boring and irritating to me.

Sonny & Carly are a great couple.
They have survived through all .
They do indeed have a long history.
The only other person I’d like to see Sonny with is Ava, they have chem and would not bore me/never a dull moment for sure.

The Sonny & Carly reuniting story is awesome. It is emotional in more than one way.
ALL weddings are interrupted, and-
I did not see this one coming (surprise, I like surprises..

We get it, we get it — Sonny Corinthos is the greatest man/husband/father/insert title here in the history of ever. This half month (and counting) of all things Corinthos has certainly been giving the old fast forward button a work-out. Between Michael’s character ruining decision to just forgive the man who murdered his real father in cold blood, screechy Carly’s sudden dignified grace over a man she acts like walks on water, and Morgan’s over the top behavior I just can’t. (And as my boyfriend said “everybody knows Sonny’s not going to die or be paralyzed so why are they… Read more »

Couldn’t agree more. I was basically going to write the same thing. This non-stop Corinthos every day has to stop. If the powers that be think this will turn around the ratings, think again.

I ff’d so much of yesterday’s episode that I think I watched it 10 minutes. Today wasn’t much better as Maxie and Nathan spent almost all of their scenes talking about Sonny.

ENOUGH!

Hi, Paul. The worst for me is Michael’s 180 overnight. The idea is neither palatable nor digestible. Perhaps, I could have made a little peace with it if years had gone by. No one seems to feel any pity for Sonny except Su…(hi, Su…luv-ya)…LOL. Seriously, the writers want us to forget all of Sonny’s demonic actions and dark lifestyle….. he being redeemed right before our eyes. His hospital bed is being used as his pulpit. Even unconscious, he orates without words. Whoopee !!!!! He opened his eyes!!! But, never mind Sonny. This platform has shown me what a good actress… Read more »

lol
Morgan’s over the top behavior is because he is mentally ill = logical
Son’s forgive their fathers when facing death= logical
Carly has always loved & Sonny forgiven him, she actually understands him= logical

GH has been far during the past month from being ”everything Corinthos ” (gotta keep up)

Of course Sonny will not die, it is a soap, it is the story, the journey all face and the love, the trials, struggles, the changing of lives.. it is the bumpy ride 🙂

right on schedule Su0000 you miss the point. The point is that millions of viewers have abandoned this show because they are sick and tired of the character of Sonny being written as a hero and moral center of the show. It doesn’t make any sense!

Justin that is bull 🙂
it was near 3 million with all enjoying GH, Sonny and all..
It lost viewers over Fluke not dying lol they couldn’t take it any longer.
Sonny is loved by millions , also.
He is a cornerstone character, and has lasted, been on top, for decades.

I do not see Sonny being written as a hero, I see a man dying because he did a stupid thing ..
And, it’s not unusual for Sonny to rescue the ones he loves..

So yeah Morgan’s bi-polar but his scenes are just painful for me to watch (that hug he gave Patrick today after Patrick told them that Sonny made it through surgery — was I the only who expected him to ask for his hug back when Patrick said Sonny wasn’t out of the woods yet?) People don’t always forgive and forget regardless of tragedy because emotions aren’t always logical. Grudges are real and letting characters carry them is believable; having characters forgive things like someone killing their parent is completely unbelievable.There is way more story to come out of a long… Read more »

Su, nothing about this family is logical . You will never convince any of us, that is, those who abhor Sonny, otherwise. Carly doesn’t know her own mind. A normal mother would have taken her kids and would have run like the very devil were on her heels. Why? Because he was, literally. Lol, later.
PS. Sonny is not Michael’s father. What a farce.

Exactly, Lil Angel. I have been saying this forever….Sonny’s sins are unpardonable. One just does not forget. Su keeps saying it’s a soap not to be taken seriously. We know it’s a soap….we’re not children. For said reason, we would like to eat something we can swallow.
As Alan said, I’m sure Carly loves Sonny….as screwed up as that is. But do not shove it down my throat, as the writers are doing.
I guess I’m not a good Christian? I should be more forgiving. I draw the line on cheaters, murderers and those who inflict pain on humanity.

Harry

Well done, Alan! You too, Little Angel and Cee Cee. That hug was just plain weird.
Someone needs to educate Bryan Craig on the characteristics of bipolar disorder.
One minute he’s acting like he has Tourette Syndrome and the next minute he’s acting like Dustin Hoffman’s Rainman with a dash of Tom Hank’s Forrest Gump. I fully expect him to start telling viewers that he’s an excellent driver and that life is like a box of chocolates.
Morgan is like a box of chocolates–you never know what you’re going to get.

I’ve never understood why someone like Sonny is considered a romantic lead. Personally, I could not care less if he lives or dies (and there is zero suspense because we know he’ll end up fine). And no matter how much my “father” loved me growing up, if I found out that he basically stole me from my real father, hung him from a meat hook, and ultimately murdered him, there is no way I’d ever let him be my father again. OR, if he shot me at point blank as a spy, I’d certainly never forgive him just because he… Read more »

Soaps are fictional drama..
watching a soap and expecting it to be as reality is not gonna work, it is entertainment.
Taking GH or any soap seriously and wanting fiction to be as real life, well it’s not.lol soaps are wild stuff.
All kinds of crazy over the top unbelievable stuff happens in soaps, enjoy it for what it is= fiction 🙂 Sonny is a complicated deeply layered two sides of the coin character..Sonny is a great soap character.. (Maurice never killed anyone LOL)

‘Moral decay’, how fitting, Justin. I love it. Their relationship is always out of sorts. ….too old to be star-crossed lovers. No Shakespearean tragedy that. But, this couple does have its fans. What to do, what to do.
I can say for a certainty that Morgan is on his way to destruction. He will try killing Julian. Sonny is the ‘lost’ son of Fenrir. He destroys everything and anyone with whom he comes into contact.

Su0000, I’ve been watching GH since 1978, so please don’t school me on fiction. What I’m talking about is how much I hate the mob worshiping that goes on. The show is called “General Hospital”. I, and obviously millions of others (DO YOU ACTUALLY READ THE RATINGS?) are tired of the Sonny Hour.

Hate to say this after all the years of watching GH, enduring Fluke/Geary, and hoping for a breath of fresh air after that was over, but ff may to not be enough. How dark stories one after another, characters with not many redeeming qualities/values monopolizing story lines, who suffer no consequences and have everyone forgiving them or looking the other way…it’s getting beyond my entertainment threshold. Especially for a soap which I thought was supposed to be more of a “romantic ” (not just kissy stuff) escape in the afternoon with both strong and flawed character…not a crime-focused, psycho-drama.

Rose, thank you.
I cannot help but feel that there is a ‘careful-for-what-you-wish-for” thing going on here.
Yes, we were rooting for core families to come back to the forefront, but NO, we were not wishing for a repeat of the Sonny saga.
This is beyond depressing and I will not tune in for the Sonny show yet again.

Harry…I really want GH rebound. I have hope for the new/old writing team, not to totally take us backwards, but still maintain the character and personality that was uniquely GH. But sometimes I wonder if “some of what we wish for” speaks for all GH viewers. And even here we don’t always agree. After all we MF commenters are but a fraction of the GH viewers. And I don’t read other fan sites. What do you think?

Having said that, this latest emphasis on Sonny and Carly is absolutely nauseating, and watching Morgan’s bizarre meltdown can hardly be called entertaining by any stretch of one’s imagination.

Kim Delaney’s Lifetime Movie ‘Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice’ Drops Trailer

Coming up as part of Lifetime’s Ripped from the Headlines true crime series of movies, The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice, is now slated to premiere next month on February 20th at 8 pm ET.

General Hospital’s Kim Delaney (Jackie Templeton) stars in the film, executive produced by Deborah Norville. in which she portrays, Mari Gilbert, a mother who becomes alarmed when her daughter Shannan (Katharine Isabelle) is MIA and doesn’t return home. Knowing her daughter sometimes works as an escort, Mari fears the worst.

As those who know the true life story, Mari’s attempt to find her daughter and the subsequent investigation leads to a chilling discovery – the bodies of several other missing women.

Photo: Lifetime

In the real life story, the remains of the women were uncovered accidentally as police searched for Shannan, who went missing after visiting a client, whom she met on Craigslist, in the gated community of Oak Beach on Long Island, and then fleeing the man’s home.   However, police believe that Mari’s unwavering fight to find her daughter which led to finding the other women is not how Shannan ultimately disappeared.

While the case has yet to be solved the film shares, “Though the search for the serial killer is still ongoing, Mari’s passionate dedication to giving her daughter and other forgotten women a voice, and the attention they deserve, has kept the case alive with hopes of a breakthrough soon.”

PEOPLE exclusively dropped the trailer over the weekend.  Make sure to check it out.

Once the trailer was released, Delaney shared on her Twitter account: “Amazing director @StanleyMBrooks Thank you so much, Stan!Very special producers, cast and crew. An important story!”

WATCH: The Cast of ‘Studio City’ Talk On the Latest Five Episodes & The Making of the Critically-Acclaimed Digital Drama

It’s one of the most talked about digital dramas out there, with a look and feel all its own, containing smart, witty, and dramatic plots and dialogue, and stellar performances abound.

In Amazon Prime’s Studio City, the story about life on a soap in front of the camera juxtaposed with the often harsh reality of life behind the scenes, will have any fan of the genre getting a kick out of some of the very familiar soap tropes contained within balanced with the five-hankie moments throughout  And now, Studio City has dropped their latest five episodes picking the story back up from where it left off.

Michael Fairman chatted with the cast of Studio City in his latest interview for The Michael Fairman Channel on You Tube. Those taking part in this virtual conversation included: Sean Kanan (Sam), Sarah Joy Brown (Laurie), Tristan Rogers (Doc), Carolyn Hennesy (Gloria), Scott Turner Schofield (Max), Anna Maria Horsford (Jolene), and Justin Torkildesn (Jacob).  Ronn Moss, who also appears in the series playing a version of himself, was filming a movie during the scheduling of this chat, but his presence is felt when some hilarious moments featuring him and Sean Kanan were discussed.

Getting a show up and running and then taped during the Covid-19 pandemic is no easy task as Kanan shared in the group interview.  As well, Anna Maria Horsford and Sarah Joy Brown share how they came to their parts and the rapid-fire pace in which their scenes were shot.  Tristan Rogers, who won a Daytime Emmy last year for his performance as Doc, gives another heartbreaking turn, and reveals his thoughts on the work he did, plus shares his remembrances of his late friend and GH co-star, John Reilly.

Scott Turner Schofield talks about how Sean and his wife Michele Kanan, two of the creators of the show, have given him and the transgender community a space with Max’s storyline in Studio City.  GH favorite, Carolyn Hennesy shares how she crafted her role of Gloria, the executive producer, after Jill Farren Phelps, and Daytime Emmy winner Justin Torkildsen shares how he wound up with a part in the digital drama and the scenes he shares with Hennesy.

GH’s Lisa LoCicero Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

This week on General Hospital the truth came out on all fronts; as Olivia (Lisa LoCicero) put two and two together and realized Ned (Wally Kurth) cheated on her with Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn).  Meanwhile, Alexis figured out Tracy (Jane Elliot) framed her to make it look like she passed out drunk behind the wheel.

Throughout, there were great performances from Wally Kurth, Jane Elliot and Nancy Lee Grahn, but it was soap vet, Lisa LoCicero, who for us was given the material and stole the show with her heartbreaking performances as a woman scorned.

LoCicero plays Olivia Falconeri from Bensonhurst, so believably, that viewers understand her every woman, who married into the well-to-do Quatermaines, and who has a much higher moral and ethical standard then the Q’s.

In key scenes at the Quartermaine mansion, Olivia confronts Ned about the night he never came home, and she wants the truth.  She also rightly accuses Tracy on being part of the cover-up.  A caught Ned confesses.  He tells Olivia he was in a terrible place, and jumped to the wrong conclusion about her and Robert (Tristan Rogers), and began drinking, which Sam (Kelly Monaco) overhears and can’t believe he was drinking with an alcoholic. Olivia says that Ned is incapable of being trustworthy after spending his entire life amongst a house full of liars and cheats.  Meanwhile, Alexis shows up in the middle of all this to confront Tracy on her machinations setting the stage for a showdown between Olivia and Alexis.

When Alexis and Olivia talk in private, the former legal eagle apologizes to her friend for sleeping with her husband; saying they both knew it was wrong right after it happened, but Olivia quickly points out that they didn’t seem to stop themselves or think it was wrong, while he was unbuttoning his pants or she was taking off her blouse!

Olivia stands her ground through her devastation and is appalled that Alexis calls her a “friend” and how she is only showing remorse because she has been caught!

Courtesy/ABC

When Ned tries to talk to Olivia and professes how much he loves her and how sorry he is for having sex in a drunken stupor with Alexis, Olivia is gut-punched.  Ned continually says he thought Olivia and Robert hooked-up thanks to Brook Lynn deleting messages meant for Ned.  The fact that he would assume the worst of her, only made things worse for Ned, and then to go as far as having revenge sex with Alexis, made Olivia feel her husband had sunk to new lows.

It is then Olivia has a moment of reckoning; wondering what is her role in the Quartermaine family anyway, and how she doesn’t really fit in.  Ned promises to wait for her and begs her not to give up on them.  When he leaves, Liv breaks down … her marriage in pieces and betrayed by all those she thought she could trust.

Each of the aforementioned moments were played to perfection by LoCicero, leaving the audience wondering just what will Olivia do next and how will she bounce back from this betrayal.  That is why Michael Fairman TV names Lisa our pick for The Power Performance of the Week.  And, if it’s one thing we know about Olivia, she is a scrappy fighter, a survivor, and in the capable hands of this actress, we will be rooting for her all along the way.

So, what did you think of the performance of Lisa LoCicero?  Do you hope Olivia and Ned work things out and they stay together, or do you want to see if she and Robert Scorpio might have a new romance? Comment below.
