Before Lucky can visit Siobhan, Anthony visits her in her hospital bed.  Siobhan leaves a message.  Skye harbors Jax safely and in secret.  Carly faces off with Sonny for being a murderer.  Jackal, P.I., pauses over the bakery name “Luzetta’s.”  What is the gumshoe onto? Liz fears Lucky will blame her for some recent issues.  Will Lucky find Siobhan’s mysterious message?  Carly and Shawn discuss family as Sonny takes vigil in his greatest regrets at the GH chapel.  Sonny gets Michael on his side.  Maxie takes Jackal, P.I., to Georgie’s grave in hopes that will jog his true identity.  Abby calls Michael out on his irresponsible support of his father over Jax.

Skye delights when she discovers Tracy trying to cover her tracks about Gino Soleito.  Later, Skye meets up with Anthony to discuss the terms of their scheme as Johnny arrives to overhear.  Dante arrives to hear Sonny and Carly fighting about Jax.  An emotional glimmer of Spinelli shines through – and is gone again.  It gets ugly between Abby and Sonny.  Later, Abby runs into Johnny, and they discover they have a lot in common.

Despite his seizures, Jason tries to conduct business from his hospital bed.  Sam puts her foot down, and the two share a romantic moment planning their wedding.  Later, Robin arrives with a shocking explanation for Jason’s seizures.  Drugs threaten to take a place in Lucky’s life again.  Meanwhile, Steve questions Liz and Matt over missing drugs at the hospital.  Matt discovers Siobhan’s note and shows it to Lucky  – what does it mean?  Jackal, P.I., continues his stakeout of Luzetta’s, making himself at home in the dumpster.  Mac comforts Alexis as she mourns missing Jax.  Diane and Max break up.

At the hospital Patrick, Robin and Matt discuss Jason’s surgery. Robin would like Matt to assist Patrick, but Patrick bristles at the suggestion. He argues that his little brother would be too busy competing and would be a distraction. At the nurses’ station Elizabeth frets that Steve and Epiphany will discover she was the nurse who stole the drugs. Matt calms her down; she got them for Lucky, so she shouldn’t worry. Carly catches up with Michael to tell him that Sonny is manipulating him, but Michael accuses her of being one of her “I hate Sonny” rampages. He knows Carly will forgive Sonny sooner than later. Carly admits that was true in the past, but says this time is different. Matt and Elizabeth join Robin and Patrick as Patrick repeats that he does not want Matt assisting him in surgery. Matt argues that Patrick needs an extra pair of hands and eyes and Elizabeth agrees.  Meanwhile Jason and Sam debate on whether Jason should have surgery. Jason wants to make this decision with Sam; what does she think? Do they risk the time they have together now or try to buy more time later? Later Sam joins the group by the nurses’ station. She announces that Jason has decided to have the surgery. Carly overhears and slips away as Monica tells Sam that she made the right decision. Patrick and Matt continue to argue until Matt angrily agrees to stay out of the OR.

Carly sneaks into Jason’s room where she can’t help but dump her worries about Michael following in Sonny’s footsteps. Sam enters and chastises Carly for making Jason worry before his operation. Carly realizes Sam is right and leaves. Sam takes a moment to thank Jason for every day they had together and how she looks forward to the rest of their lives together. She leans down to kiss him, but a nurse interrupts. It’s time to head to the OR.

As Jason is wheeled away, Robin urges Monica, Carly and Elizabeth to not watch the surgery. Instead go home or somewhere safe and think of Jason. Patrick warns Edward that Jason may not wake up the same person, which gives Monica hope. She wonders if it’s bad to wish for the old Jason back. Edward grimly warns Monica to be careful for she wishes for.  Sam returns to Jason’s hospital room where she looks at a photo of them from their vacation in Hawaii. She has a fantasy where she and Jason are married and have moved to Hawaii. Jason spends his days surfing while Sam searches for sunken treasure. Her latest adventure includes a tribal mask that leads reveals the coordinates of an old World War II ship (that is rumored to have gold) when placed over a map of the area. Jason excitedly agrees to go with Sam as a stranger lurks nearby, listening. Elizabeth heads to her art studio where she remembers Jason seeking shelter there after he had been shot (many, many years ago). She has a fantasy where Jason is an architect and she is a successful artist. Jason announces he has to move to Tokyo for his next project. Elizabeth agrees to go with him as we learn they have no kids and live a very bohemian lifestyle. Jason urges Elizabeth to finish her last piece for her upcoming art show as he removes his clothes. It turns out Jason is also Elizabeth’s muse. Later Jason finds Elizabeth’s unopened package of birth control.

Monica returns home where she gazes at an old photo of Jason. She has a fantasy where Alan (who is alive in this alternate world) brings Jason into the living room. Here’s to the new Chief of Staff! Tracy and Edward join them in a toast as Monica subtly removes the champagne flute from Jason’s hand, indicating he could have a substance abuse issue. Sure enough, later Monica sees Jason snorting cocaine. Carly enters Jake’s where she has a fantasy of Jason as the new mob boss. He enters Jake’s to play some pool with Carly. Jason tells Carly he couldn’t have secured all those territories without her and almost kisses her. Carly smiles; the sky is the limit as long as they are together! Later Michael walks in and barks at his mother. Back at the hospital Patrick goes to remove the foreign particle in Jason’s brain, but he begins to bleed.

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: 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.

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.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Jason asks Carly to Marry Him and She Responds “With All My Heart”

The stage is set now for General Hospital’s Jason/Carly/Sonny/Nina story to explode as things heated up between longtime friends and former lovers, Jason (Steve Burton) and Carly (Laura Wright) just as Jax (Ingo Rademacher) is in Nixon Falls pleading with Nina (Cynthia Watros) to come clean and tell “Mike”(Maurice Benard) that he is indeed, Sonny Corinthos.  Here’s what went down on Friday’s episode …

Back in Port Charles, at the demolished former “Jake’s”, Carly and Jason’s old stomping grounds, Carly and Jason share a kiss. Carly says she can’t believe this is happening after letting him know that all of her old romantic feelings for him are starting to come back. Apparently that is true for Jason too, as the ABC daytime drama series finally reaches back into the history of these two characters who were in love, before Carly slept with Sonny.  Back in the present day, Jason asks Carly to marry him, and she responds, “With all my heart.” But now, Carly is starting to feel more excited about what started off as a business arrangement between the two of them to retain the Corinthos family hold over the five families and the territory in Sonny’s absence.  Carly says she wants their wedding day to be about them, and later they can come to Jake’s just by themselves.

In Nixon Falls, Jax (Ingo Rademacher) is trying to get through to Nina, who has admitted her duplicity to him and how she has fallen in love with “Mike”.  When Jax informs her that Carly and Jason are getting married, she thinks that’s great then she and “Mike” can have a future together.  Nina wants Jax to just forget this conversation, and seeing Sonny, and do this for her; after all she went through in losing her child, Nelle, and her relationship with him. Then Jax asks her to think about Donna and Avery and Wiley, his children and grandchild, who don’t know he is alive and will never get to know him. Nina cries that Jax has won, and that she will tell “Mike” the truth in private (but something tells us, she is going to make “Mike” walk-in on Jason and Carly’s nuptials, so that she has a shot of keeping him all to herself by the betrayal he will witness).  Jax says he is not leaving Nixon Falls till she tells Sonny the truth, but she somehow she still got him to leave through her pleading to let her do this alone.  As Nina thinks “Mike” is walking in the front door of the Tan-O, in walks Peter (Wes Ramsey)!

Meanwhile, Jordan (Briana Nicole Henry) is rushed to General Hospital unconscious with Portia (Brook Kerr) not far behind, after being trapped together.  More bad news is revealed when Austin (Roger Howarth) gets the blood results back for Jordan and tells Curtis (Donnell Turner) that Jordan’s levels of carbon monoxide are 58% which is not good for someone with one kidney.  Austin relates that if Jordan’s kidney function doesn’t improve, they’ll have put her on dialysis.  TJ (Tajh Bellow) comes to see his mom, and sits by her bedside in tears.  Later, Curtis breaks down in tears holding Jordan’s hand to come back to him, and she opens her eyes, as Portia walks in on the scene.

Three of the five families plan to take over Port Charles and split the territory after their secret meeting, where they plan to blow up a warehouse while Carly and Jason are distracted and at their wedding; the families also received a message from Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober) while in prison.  Who will stop the “hit”?

So, what do you think of Carly and Sonny getting close? What did you think of the performances of Laura Wright, Steve Burton, Cynthia Watros, and Donnell Turner within this episode? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
