GENERAL HOSPITAL: Curtis is Stunned When Marshall Reveals He is his Father

Monday’s episode of General Hospital brought with it some very intense scenes between Curtis (Donnell Turner) and Marshall (Robert Gossett).

While at Curtis’ Savoy nightclub, Marshall confesses to Curtis that he in, in fact, the father Curtis believed to have died all those years ago, thus causing Curtis and his brother to grow up without a father.

Marshall explains he’s the man Curtis has been searching for his whole life … ‘Marshall Thomas Ashford’.

At first in denial, Curtis wants Marshall to leave the premises. Marshall tells his son to look at him and in his eyes. Curtis cannot comprehend how if he was alive, he could have left his children behind causing them a lifetime of instability.

It’s then that Marshall goes on to say that he could not come forward before because it wasn’t safe until now for him to reveal himself.  Marshall then asks Curtis for a chance and to take things one step at time.

Curtis demands that Marshall gets out of the nightclub immediately.  Before he leaves, Marshall leaves behind a family photo and once alone, Curtis breaks down and cries.

So, it appears that everyone’s guesses were correct – that Marshall is Curtis’ dad – but what’s the back-story, or is there a twist coming?

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.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: What Did You Think of the Carly and Nina Showdown?

Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital brought with it the long-awaited and highly-anticipated showdown between Carly Corinthos (Laura Wright) and Nina Reeves (Cynthia Watros) and ended with Carly’s threat to Nina for all she has perpetrated on Sonny (Maurice Benard) and his loves ones, shouting to Jason (Steve Burton), “I’m going to burn Nina’s life down and spit on her ashes!”

But before all that, Carly found Nina at the Q’s, and thus began the confrontation. Armed with the information from Maxie (Kirsten Storms), that it was Nina who kept Sonny from his life for over nine months, Carly comes at Nina that she will pay the consequences for what she did.  Nina says she regrets what she has done, and is sorry for the pain she caused everyone. However, there was a caveat to her response.  She says Carly isn’t owning up to her part.

Now we get the back-story of reasoning to Carly; about the phone call that set Nina off on this deception in the first place. When she tells Carly she called to tell her she found Sonny alive in Nixon Falls, Carly was so hateful to her on the phone call about her rights to see her grandson, Wiley, so she withheld the truth. Carly gets another shocker when Nina drops that Jax (Ingo Rademachee) knew, too.

Carly then figures out this is payback time for what happened to Nina’s daughter, Nelle.  When Carly says the world is better off without Nelle, Nina goes into how Carly did not tell anyone about Nelle’s fall and kept it quiet!  She then says that Carly got Sonny back, but she will never get her daughter back.  Carly is still in disbelief that Nina could do this to all of Sonny’s kid … not tell them their father was alive. Nina counters she will apologize to everyone, but not ever to Carly.

Then, Nina says to Carly she should just be happy that Sonny’s back, but drops another cryptic message expressing, that she wonders, “how long he’ll be happy?” She then really hits Carly with a low blow sharing that “Mike” was happy with his life and not having to witness or deal with the mob violence that took Morgan.

That was enough to send Carly finally into a full-on rage against Nina, but Jason arrives on the scene, throwing himself between the women, with Carly screaming that Nina will never see Wiley again ,and as mentioned at the top of this recap, that she is going to destroy Nina’s life in retribution.

What Carly still does not know is that “Mike” fell in love with Nina.  What will happen when she learns that?

Great performances by Laura Wright and Cynthia Watros throughout the key scenes.

So, what did you think of the showdown? Did it live up to your expectations?  What do you hope happens next? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
