Over the weekend some sad news to report, Chad Stuart, one half of the popular folk music duo, Chad & Jeremy, and the father to one of General Hospital’s most talented stars, James Patrick Stuart (Valentin Cassadine), died following complications from pneumonia that were reported not to be related to Covid-19.

Chad Stuart had just turned 79-years-old on December 10th.  At first, Chad’s passing was posted on the Chad & Jeremy Facebook which read: “We are deeply saddened to announce the passing of Chad Stuart, a father, a husband, a brother, a grandfather, a friend, a mentor, a teacher and an inspiration to many. Chad developed pneumonia (non-Covid related) after he was admitted to the hospital due to a fall. We ask for love, celebration but also space while the family adjusts to life without this incredible force. The family would like to thank his fans from around the world for the outpouring of birthday wishes and gifts he received every year. Chad took the time to read each and every card. The world has lost a legend today, but his voice will continue to touch our lives through his music.”

James Patrick Stuart took to his social media sharing these touching words and a heart-tugging photo in honor of his father:  “12/20/20  Higgledy piggledy hi-de-ho Miss you, kiss you daddy-o… Wish you’d stuck around a bit, But you were sick and had to split. Just know that I could not be sad When I’m this grateful you were my dad. Love you, Chad Stuart.”

 

As part of the British music invasion of the 60’s, Chad & Jeremy were best knows for their hits:  “Yesterday’s Gone,” “A Summer Song” and “Willow Weep for Me.”

Our thoughts, and condolences are with James and his family during this difficult time, and know that through his own musical talents which have been on full-display for GH fans and music fans, Chad’s legacy lives on within him.

My condolences. It’s always hard to lose a parent and other family members, especially over the holiday season. So best to remember “how grateful your were to have him as your dad.”

Prayers for him and his family. It’s never easy and even worse during the holidays. I’m grateful his father is not suffering now though. Sounds like they are trying to focus on the good times and that is good.

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.
