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

Courtesy/ABC

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.

The one part of Ghost Mike’s comments that I didn’t get was when he implied that he brought Sonny to his “brother in arms” Lenny, as if Mike & Lenny had served together in the military. Now how does that work? First of all, I would guess that Mike was a decade or more older than Lenny. Second, of all the years that Mike Corbin (in either of his incarnations) was on GH, I can’t recall military service being part of his backstory. What would be the point of adding that into the character a year after his death?? And… Read more »

I am sooo happy Sonny is back. I wished they would have interrupted the wedding. I pray they find out before the wedding night.

Jax tried to call Maxie – not text (that would have made too much sense!)

Phyllis’ insurance claim on the Tan-O couldn’t be that much. The place never had any customers to begin with.

So predictable. How can suspense build when the audience already knows the outcome? Sure, soaps are mostly predictable but that doesn’t mean boring. And this new “Mike” saga is dull and irritating. The wedding is just silly and often nauseating (those loving looks between Carly and Jason) and Diane looked better than the bride. The fallout for Nina might be the only compelling part of this.

Welcome back to Sonny. If Nina truly loved him, she wouldn’t have witheld the truth all this time. True, Carly doesn’t deserve him, but no one could be happy living in that cocoon of lies and deception. I guess you could call it a Fool’s Paradise.

Glad Sonny is back!! The acting is fabulous, but I hope this poorly executed revised history story arc is worth it. I’m not a Jason fan, but it seemed very disrespectful to fans of super couple JaSam. Not sure how the familial relationship between Sonny, Carly and Jason will ever be the same. Applaud writers for taking risk, but is it worth it? Also, a shame how many other fabulous actors have gotten back storied for back to back seasons because the mob stuff eats the show alive.

What bothered me most is when Jason, former love of Sam’s life and she his, tells Carly he’ll ALWAYS BE THERE FOR HER FOREVER!” He promised Sam the same thing but JaSam were ACTUALLY in love. I don’t believe that he’s “in love” with Carly-I could tell by his KISS!!

Great drama. Maurice was chilling. Big omission no Jake or Danny?? Several key players missing at wedding. Get Alexis out of jail, back to the fearless woman she was. She needs to be with Shawn. Where is Taggert? Keep Phyllis. Not a fan of Nina’s pirtrayer.LOVE DIANE!! Epiphany should have sung at the wedding and deserves a storyline!! Weren’t she and Diane dating brothers?

Max and Milo are no longer on the show. The real life brothers moved from California long before the pandemic. Epiphany and Milo break up took place off camera but was mentioned in story. Diane doesn’t even mention Max anymore. Lucas, due to a throwaway line during Austin’s hiring, has also departed Port Charles.

It was something like “A staff position is now available since Lucas moved on”. Really weak, hardly memorable. No scene of Bobbie, Carly or Sam mentioning anything. The new guy aired maybe 3 times after Ryan Carnes departure. He certainly looked interesting. Don’t know why they can’t focus on a legacy gay character.

I want to know why didn’t the firemen put out the fire at the tan-o?? All they did was stand there. Did Jason think and get him and Carly out of the car before it blew up. Gotta love those cliff hanger Fridays

I’m thinking Jason’s men switched bomb & the men that was waiting for bomb to go off…
I’m hoping any way.

Carly & Jason’s wedding is not valid… since Sunny is alive!

They made some half-assed excuse for the fire department’s poor performance, claiming that their delayed response was due to the fire department being called to a fake “fire” at some other address. Implication here being that Whiny Heiny called it in, hoping he could burn up Nina & Phyllis before they showed up. Apparently Tricky Dick Nixon falls is one of those old style small towns with an all volunteer fire department & only one fire engine.

I love Mike and Nina! Which surprises me because I haven’t been a huge Nina fan. I guess I partly like that storyline because I liked Phyllis and Lenny so much. I was hoping Sonny would be discovered while still Mike and in love with Nina.Then he could gradually recover memory and be torn between Nina and Carly. And end up eventually with Carly again, no doubt. Don’t forget that Nina tried to tell Carly! And I think Nina was happy that Mike was so happy. I’m beyond tired of Jax! I hope Nina doesn’t get back with him.

Glad Nina got caught. Mortified that Carly & Jason exchanged vows. Preferred them to be friends. Dummy Maxie for assuming Jax wants to interfere with the wedding. Now she’s at risk from Pete. Sonny go rescue Carly so the marriage can be annulled and Jason returns to Britt. My perfect story line

I just don’t buy the Jason & Carly love match. Who hasn’t she been with?? Better off friends and put Jason back with Sam.

Please let sonny and carly get back together. They truly make the best soap couples. Jason go back with Dr. Britt who had a one night affair with Jax.

So glad Sonny is back..just hope that he and Carly can get back together and Jason can move on with Britt. I feel those relationships are better.. Carly is definitely better with Sonny. Thanks for ending the Nixon Falls episodes..it was so wrong and boring. Not a fan of Nina..she gets what she deserves. Get rid of Peter
Please..let Maxie get her child.

I LOVE Mike/Max Gail——

We went down that Sonny/Nina rabbit hole for THAT conclusion? What man walks into his bedroom to see his wife pulling the tie off another man, champagne on the nightstand, hear they married despite their lame excuse for it, and have no reaction! “Mike’s” smiling and weird goofiness seemed more like Maurice knew the storyline was dumb and he couldn’t keep a straight face.
