GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Tells Nina He Knows Exactly Who He Is; Jason & Carly’s Wedding Comes to an Explosive Conclusion

Courtesy/ABC

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.

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.

From what Jason said, he and Spinelli were already aware that Novak & Buscema were plotting an attack even before Ms Wu whispered in his ear.

Good to know that she didn’t side with the other two idiots. Why not? Maybe she knows they’re conspiring with Cyrus the Virus, who she didn’t seem to like at all.

There’s also the possibility that she’s somewhat a fan of Carly. Being a woman in the mob herself, she admires how Carly stepped up to lead Sonny’s business when he was presumed “dead”. And of course, she and Carly are technically “family”, since she’s somehow related to Brad… who is still Carly’s brother in law, despite the fact that we never see Lucas (why wasn’t he at his sister’s wedding, for Hell’s sake??)

Clearly it was the two rogue Cyrus loving mobsters in the exploding car. And as I said yesterday, that’s only disappointing that Gladys wasn’t in there with them.

That being said though, it’s not out of the question that Jason and/or Carly might have to fake their deaths for a while… because Jason (at least) will definitely be disappearing for a while (on his COVID vacation).

Poor Sonny…. finally gets his memories back and he has to come home to all of this…

Oh no I hope you’re wrong about another possible 9-month “presumed dead” story, this time concerning Jason and Carly. But, if you’re right, it would offer Sonny the time to calm down and show feelings for Nina again (if he still has them.) I have no opinion who Sonny ends up with. I’m just glad to see the Nixon Falls story end. I like Phyllis and I hope she can come to Port Charles too.

No, it wouldn’t be another 9 months. If Jason is playing dead, it would only be for 3 weeks, or how ever much time he was required to take off after testing positive for COVID. Since only one limo presumably blew up, they might not even pretend he’s dead at all. Though if he and Carly went into “hiding” while Sonny is still recovering physically from the fire & mentally from 9 months of amnesia, it certainly wouldn’t be good for the “business”, with 2 of their rivals/associates inadvertently taking themselves out of the picture.

What do I think? Cynthia Watros is giving 1,000 percent to this thankless role; she should win a “good sport” Emmy for having to look longingly at the dullard called “Mike” and for being a borderline neurotic once again. The wedding made me nauseous, save for the moment when Gladys stole her date’s hanky without even asking. The bomb? Sort of anti-climactic after having to watch that marriage kiss!

Soaphound,
So right! I agree with what Satan said also about why wasn’t Gladys in the car with the mobsters. I can’t stand that woman! I wouldn’t want to be in Nina’s shoes for anything. I hope she brushes up on her tap dancing cause she’s going to be doing a lot of it in the days to come.

Yes, Soaphound—Cynthia should get all kinds of rewards. Specifically? The make-out interludes with Mike—
She must have run in and out of “la salle de bains” a million times, gagging and “Listerining”, after exchanging kissy-poo fluids with Mike-a-licious.
I guess all of Nina’s machinations were for naught. What Jax said!! Mike would remember, sooner or later. Served no purpose unless Nina is off to the looney bin or the hoosegow.
I don’t get this whole Gladys thing. What kind of mother would give such weird, ill-advice to her child, as to live a life of crime, rife with mortal risks? Sick!!
—- and Novak? That guy has ITALIAN written all over his face, expressions and demeanor. He looks like my builder. Novak is an Eastern European name. Why not make him Italian?
I was not aware Burton had his “bout” with Covid—-Satan—you make so much sense; as usual!!

Celia, dear, the name of our Aussie actor playing Drew’s guard is Josh Murray. I found some Google images of him, not to be confused with a Bachelorette contestant with the same name. Why are so many gorgeous men named Josh? Duhamel, Hutcherson, Lucas, O’Connor, Bowman. Wow, an embarrassment of riches!

I know—-Josh must be the magical name—not to ignore the fact that Aussie men are to die-for.
So is my husband, albeit he’s 100% Italian. LOL—-but his name is Giuliano (Julian—-I call him Jude). Italian men are up there, as well, and not only in looks.
Lest I forget—-Paul Telfer. He may not be Australian (he’s Scottish), but, he makes my heart skip a beat.

Celia
Only you with your Know-it-all and pretentious attitude would make a reference to the actor playing Novak, having Italian all over his face and looking like one of your workers. The stupid writers probably thought giving him an Italian name would be too obvious. My grandparents were from Italy and unlike your lawyer parents, doctor husband, yourself a teacher as you mention ,very frequently. My mother was a petite blonde, blue eyes, unlike yourself, and didn’t have Italy all over her face, so calm down lady, I bet there are many people out there who have as good as you do or more but don’t feel the need to flaunt it as often. I took this comment personally and insulting but I don’t want to hear any long dissertation or explanations from you, this being one of the reasons we don’t post each other anymore.
Please excuse grammar, spelling, etc. It’s so hard being common.

Gee, Violet—-you seem to know so much about me. Obsessed much?
Well, my in-laws are Italian immigrants. My children are half Italian. I have an Italian surname.
Andy is my builder, not my worker—he has workers. Yet, no matter how much I ignore you, you still manage to call me names —remember calling me a sheep?
I tried to be polite.
If I felt above Italians, in sny way, I would not have married one. The Italian culture is, by far, the most notable which includes inventors, writing, education, to name a few. Bath, a city in England, was named Bath because of the Roman baths and aqueducts.
Who do you think you are…..I beg your pardon.
I do respect my elders and the elderly. Therefore, I will leave it at that. You have a great rest of the day.
And, yes, I am an Educator, and proud if it. Children are the future. Do you have something against teachers, doctors and attorneys…..We worked hard to get where we are. It is America. Land of opportunity. Not my fault if you are resentful.
The character Novak looks very Italian, he actually has a very handsome face. But, you needed to pick on something concerning MY character. . Hope all your angst is now gone after getting all your odium off your chest. God bless, Violet. Be hapoy and calm down. I am not worth it, or your time.

Ready for this story to pick up some pace and see how it unfolds back in Port Charles. Glad Phyllis and Sonny finally know the truth. I still wish Leisl could have handled Heinrik. I keep hoping Leisl will handle both Heinrik and Cyrus eventually. I bet the writers have Anna handle Heinrik.

Carrie, I think it’d be great if Maxie takes care of Peter the Puke once and for all. I can see it now… she ices him in defense of herself and her kids… then clueless Dante gleefully arrests her because “Peter had rights too.”

Carrie,
I just want Peter/Heinrich gone and I can’t wait to see who the lucky one will be to finally get the job done.

Gosh what I would have loved to have seen was the face of Brenda turning around that to me will always be Sonny’s true love !! Nauseating the wedding retcon of what we have had to endure for how many decades of Jason I mean the kid with the reindeer sweater you all are falling all over who is a lousy father a murderer a brainless loser ugh Carly should have hit the road years ago as for Nina a never developed character just a nut Staffords over acting now we have her back at Y&R now CW who use to be a decent actor then she fell into the pit of Botox and it’s sad to watch!

Please let Sonny come back looking like Sonny and not some old man. A lot of fans like the look but being old myself, I like a younger looking man especially if he’s going to be with a younger looking woman, aka Nina or Carly. It would be silly seeing this old guy come rushing in, guns and hair on fire. I have an idea that if those guns are blazing it will be in his own bedroom where he’ll find his wife and best friend. I hope so, and hope it’s as bad as we’ve looked forward to.

Sonny needs to tell carly about what nina did an Nina needs to get what she deserves
