Brenda announces she is leaving Sonny after what he did to Jax. Carly, Kristina and Ethan set out to find Morgan, Molly and Josslyn. Kristina finds the children and Jax threatens Carly that he’ll erase Carly from Josslyn’s life. Lulu struggles against Javier – but just when it looks like the worst will happen, Dante charges in and saves her from being raped. With no news of Luke, Lulu decides to set fire to the Bordello in Spencer fashion. Kristina remains ever so set to accompany Ethan to Vegas – he’s in deep.

Jason and Sam counsel a heartbroken Molly over the concept of love – bringing the couple closer together about their future.  Jason invites Sam for a rooftop dinner. Lucky and Liz come together for Aiden’s birthday – and Liz graciously invites Siobhan. As Brenda comforts Jax in jail, Carly questions Sonny’s methods wishing he had taken less extreme measures to win her Josslyn. Later, this quadrangle of lovers throws down outside the courthouse, and a verdict is leveled – in light of recent events Carly gains sole custody of Josslyn. Sonny remains determined not to lose Brenda, no matter how upset she is right now at him.  But she screams she will never come home with him.

With Maxie’s help, Jason picks out an engagement ring for Sam. As preparations are made, Sam confides in Alexis the possibility she is getting married.  But there is a snafu – Maxie accidentally drops the ring off the balcony! Jax levels awful insults Carly’s way as Sonny fights to hold onto the woman he loves. Jax makes plans to leave Port Charles, and Brenda catches Carly and Sonny in a situation. When Lucky steps away, Siobhan attacks Liz for putting on an act of kindness. Lucky tries to maintain a peaceful triangle, but drama looms between the three.

Unflappable, Jason moves forward with the rooftop proposal.  Sam makes a heartfelt decision.  Jax says goodbye to Michael, Morgan and Josslyn. Meanwhile, Brenda returns their rings to Sonny. Devastated and heartbroken, Sonny finds little comfort from Carly or Robin.  Brenda jets off on a plane with two surprising passengers. Lulu and Dante make their way home from Florida and find themselves in a cave on the Cassadine Island. Later, Dante crosses with Helena as Lulu eavesdrops. Meanwhile, Mac assigns Lucky a serious case with missing prescription drugs. Liz tries to help his investigation. Siobhan considers refilling the malpractice suit. Robin, Chief of Staff, becomes a nightmare to Patrick, Matt and Steve. Anthony Zacchara makes an appearance at ELQ with flowers for Abby. Later, Asher sows seeds of doubt in Michael and Abby to Tracy. Spinelli, as Jackal P.I., stakes out the bakery for serious and offers (bad) advice on what to do about Robin to Matt and Maxie.

This show only caters to a certain audience. I’m done watching a soap that doesn’t give other races a chance to experience love, romance & danger.

Don’t know if you’ll get this as your recaps are out dated but I was having a conversation today with a fellow GH watcher and we were discussing Sonny’s character wondering where the hell the writers are going with this story line. It seems so foolish to have brought Brenda’s character back so weak and have her exit on a poor note. Fans have been waiting so long to see their wedding and marriage bet the odds. We feel robbed that the writers wrote such a foolish story line of their love. What was the point of her short cast?… Read more »

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.

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.
