General Hospital to Incorporate In-Story ‘GMA3: What You Need to Know’ Jackie Templeton & Sasha Gilmore Interview

Photo: IMDB/ABC

In a crossover of sorts, on the upcoming, Wednesday, January 27 episode of General Hospital, the daytime drama series will bring the characters of Jackie Templeton (Kim Delaney) and Sasha Gilmore (Sofia Mattsson) to its true lead-in, GMA3: What You Need to Know, but in a fictitious way for a revealing and explosive interview.

The scene is set in the Metro Court in Port Charles, and Jackie, the ace reporter and journalist has some tough questions for Sasha during their sit-down interview.  The in-story tie-in helps promote both shows in the ABC afternoon line-up.

Soap Opera Digest, who first brought the news of the mash-up in their latest issue, revealed that the moment is “being played as a remote segment for the ABC news and lifestyle program.”

However, there will be no one from GMA3 appearing on the Wednesday episode.

So what do you think will happen during the Jackie/Sasha sit-down? Comment below.

I guess it’s a way to do a PSA, but I really couldn’t care about the GMA3 promo. These “news” and talk shows bore me terrifically stiff.

Well if i am the only who now wants more than anything for Sacha to be Jackie’s daughter…

That doesn’t seem likely, since Sasha would have to be older than Chase for that story to work. And that wouldn’t appear to be the case.

Presumably Robert would be Sasha’s father in this scenario, but I’m not really seeing that either.

I agree—not Robert’s daughter. But, it’s a soap—I’m sure ‘ye gods’ could think of something to accomodate the story, if they chose to go that way. How about Cyrus’ daughter? Oh, the irony….
There are many possibilities. Way back when, I had intimated Chase ( sp?) could be Finn’s son. Now, we know Jackie and Finn had a “one-night-stand”? What if they ‘met up’ several years later and “danced” again—another procreation? Vicious circle. Repetitive plots are the heartbeat of soaps.

Considering Cyrus seemed to have some sexual interest in Sasha when he was supplying her with drugs, I would certainly hope he’s not her father! It would only be slightly less creepy if he was her uncle, so that lets out Martin as well, I would suppose. If she had to be related to any existing families in Port Charles, I’d guess she’s a Quartermaine, from either the Celia or Jimmy Lee branches of the family tree. She actually has a resemblance to Celia (for those who can remember back that far). And at least that way, she and Mikey… Read more »

OK, Iam lost here. Where does this idea come from? Why would Jackie and Sasha be related? Help!

You are not—-I thought about it, myself, Bruni. However, my “farout” notions are mainly just that. So, it’s refreshing to see someone else think the same thought —at least, in this instance.

I love the creativity & cross promotion! GH is best soap going right now.

I can not get over Carly’s over the top interest in Nina’s finding out her daughter was Nel, other than the fact that she actually had something to do with Nel’s demise.
She used to accuse Nel with being obcessed with her, but it looks like the other way around now. If she had just told the truth from the beginning, it would not have blown over.

You know, Violet, whenever a movie becomes a hit, they say that executives then get together and try to mold every subsequent film the same way. I read that way back in 1970, any new ideas for plots were met with the question, “How can it be like “Love Story?”, the biggest movie back then. I think GH execs do something similar. They sit around thinking, “How can this storyline involve Carly and/or Sonny?”

You are so right! I forgot, this IS the Carly and Sonny show but try as hard as they can, somehow there is always some other characters that make it more interesting at least to me.

I watched before I read this and frankly, I had no idea it was a “cross-over” bit. So, I guess it wasn’t made very prominent.

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.
