GH fans were hoping that Ingo Rademacher’s return to the ABC daytime drama series would be a little longer, but news today from the fan favorite himself via his Instagram account, revealed he wrapped his return and is headed back to his home in Hawaii and to appear on the hit CBS series, Hawaii-Five-O.

Next week on the Monday August 1st episode of General Hospital, Jax will be on action on-screen as he comes into the Josslyn kidney donor storyline.  Over the last week, Ingo has been posting photos and videos from the set on his social media accounts, especially with his longtime cast mates, Laura Wright (Carly) and Maurice Benard (Sonny).

In this week’s Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Rademacher previews: “Carly has made this whole thing public. and Jax wants to keep a lid on it for many reasons.  One is that if something comes out that is bad news for Josslyn, he wants to protect her, and the other is that he knows Carly too well! He doesn’t believe she will give up the search after one conversation with their daughter.”

So, sad to hear Ingo is done at GH?  Excited to see though, on-screen starting next week?  How will Jax impact the Josslyn kidney donor storyline? Comment below!

i hear he loves living in hawaii, so hard for him to return full time if he doesn’t want to give that up, so i’m happy if we get him when he’s able to do it, its sure better then nothing. i just wish the character wasn’t tie to Carly, how next time he comes back he will inter act with more characters, although maybe he will in this run who knows. He’s so hot though, i can’t wait to see him onscreen.

The Josslyn donor story is a total fail..
It is empty, simply empty. I have not even been interested the BLAH ..
But— I am really looking forward to seeing Ingo/Jax !!!!
No matter how sloppy lame he will be written, I really am looking forward to his scenes!

A total fail is right, but YES we get to see Ingo/jax..This dude always has great screen presence regardless of the poor writing given his way.

Back in the day, I though he would have made a good recast of OO7, adjusting his accent to British.

Always though Laura’s Carly was best with him chemistry wise!

Goes right along with the failure of revealing what happened with little jakes time away with Helena. Why bother with that weird book Helena gave Elizabeth, and they brought in Kevin to help with Laura and Spenser but no one hypnotized jake to see what he remembers… just odd that that night he “died” and Jos got her mysterious kidney was the same and they choose the boring half of the story to delve into.

it really would have amped up the story… had the “last” Josslyn been a part of this

Carly needs all the help she can

Agreed, Patrick! I really miss Hannah Nordberg’s “bad seed vibe” take on Joss! That girl was too much fun!

I agree! Boring! Who cares! The Nathan/claudette crap is stupid too. Andre & Jordan are boring and mismatched! What us working is Laura & Kevin!

They didn’t ever give Jordan and Andre a chance…they give Jordan much more screen time with Curtis who I think she’s REALlY into, which is awkward because he’s seeing her employee/friend Valerie…made all the more confusing because there’s always this undercurrent between Curtis and Nina…and Curtis with Hayden (which they suddenly dropped). Curtis is the “man around town”…for a new guy he’s already been involved on some level with four ladies… I think Andre and Jordan’s relationship was to set up a chemistry…push/pull between him and Anna. Nathan and Claudette could get interesting once Nathan has possible renewed feelings for… Read more »

I think Jordan is too defensive with Andre. She always has to put up her dukes with him which doesnt come off very well. The elusive woman is ok to play but Jordan is just so exhausting! Now she probably wants Curtis because Valerie wants him. Breaking the friendship code. I think Andre & Anna have more chemistry but not sure if he’s enough for her to move past Duke. I hate the ex returns to town story with Claudette. It’s more believable with Spinelli since we’re invested in him as a character. Also, as cute as Ryan is, he… Read more »

What if Ava, somehow unaware, is the donor??? …that would shock Carly and Sonny…i miss when this show was set in Port Charles…why did they have to change it to Sonnyville-lol

Christy

Or maybe Franco was a donor… and he gets along with jake because they share kidneys. Te he he

I think Ava being the donor sounds too much like One Life to Live when Todd got Alex Olanov as a donor for Star… but they are similar. Both blonde, both mob involved. 🙂

Triple ditto. Other than his good looks, I don’t get it. A pretty face can only take you so far! Uh-hum Nathan & Griffin! Dull.

I never thought Ingo would stick around. With his home in Hawaii, that’s pretty hard to do.
Maybe GH can come up with short arcs for Jax a little more often though.
I’m glad he’s continuing to do guest appearances on Hawaii Five-O.

Or how about Hawaii on location shots… remember those scenes GH had for puerto rico with Luke, Sonny & Brenda? They used that scene of jumping in the boat as part of the opening montage.

I have to agree the writing is a bore on GH these days. What bores me: The donor story, Cassadine Island, Kristina’s sex life, Claudette, and Julian. Julian is creeping me out. So glad he is behind bars. I think they should trim the cast. I would have Julian and Ava in prison for many years to come. I love the actors, but their stories are done. I am not missing Olivia. She and Lucas were great confronting Julian. The only story keeping my interest is the mention of Jeff Webber. The likelihood that Elizabeth and Hayden/Rachel are sisters could… Read more »

I think Berlin paid Heather off to keep quite about the ponzi scheme AND about ElizAbeth and Haydens connection.

So do you think its like the parent trap where two (mrs berlin and rick webber) had an affair and each took a child. Or do you think it was another baby switch decades ago? Or maybe Elizabeth was adopted, and is really a berlin child given up?

So many choices!

Just thinking, elizabeth could be a result of mr berlin affair with her mother.

His life looks pretty good (via socia medis pics) in Hawaii…and I doubt he’d want to leave his wife and young kids for more than a short trip…so I never expected him to stick around too long. Hopefully his scenes will add some nice drama to this storyline.

Happy to see him AND Jax…not so thrilled to see “them” go but as Aria said it’s known he lives in Hawaii and loves it there. I do agree it’d be great if they could have him pop in more often!

If he is just about to appear on screen and has already finished taping in real life, how long will Jax be on GH? With everything else going on, the boring stories, starting and dropping the stories, having too many stories, having too many new characters, having long-time actors off screen for a myriad of reasons for too long, I’m exhausted. That doesn’t translate into must-see TV for me. I’ve not seen much of Jax on GH since I started watching so I don’t have a real investment in the character. However, if you’re bringing in someone like that, that… Read more »

Totally agree! When I’m multi-tasking while watching the GH there is a real problem! I was so busy not paying attention, I looked up to see that Kirsten was Maxie today!! That was a hilight; too bad the story blows!

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.

Courtesy/ABC

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: Sonny Remembers Carly Just as She Is Marrying Jason

After nine months of being “Mike”, Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) had a major breakthrough as his memory is all coming back to him now (as the Celine Dion song says), and in the process the Tan-O has burned to the ground, signaling the the probable end to the Nixon Falls arc of the story.

As the story picked-up on Thursday, Nina’s (Cynthia Watros) plot to keep Sonny for herself and away from Carly majorly backfired on her.  Not only does Phyllis (Joyce Guy) now know that Nina lied about “Mike’s” identify the entire time, but Peter August (Wes Ramsey) is running wild and free heading back to Port Charles to claim his baby and Maxie (Kirsten Storms), after setting fire to the building.

Courtesy/ABC

Since “Mike” ran in to save Nina and got hit by a beam in the process, he is alone in the burning Tan-O enveloped by flames, but that triggers the beginning of his memory coming back.

Meanwhile, back in Port Charles, Jason (Steve Burton) and Carly (Laura Wright) are at their wedding, with the five family mob bosses present with a plot of their own and everyone wondering if Jarly will say “I do'”.    The two light a candle together for those loved ones no longer with them … ah, Sonny!

Back the burning Tan-O, Sonny is visited by the vision of the real Mike (Max Gail) who tells him it’s time for him to go home now.  A conflicted Sonny tells Mike he is very happy in Nixon Falls with Nina, but Mike tells him he needs to know his past in order to move forward.  When Sonny has flashes of his violent past it frightens him, and he says whatever family he has is better off without him in their lives.

Jax (Ingo Rademacher) tries to text Maxie while still in Nixon Falls with Nina to watch out for Peter, but she is attending and managing Carly and Sonny’s wedding, so she doesn’t pick up the phone!

Inside the Tan-O, Sonny sees a vision of woman, who when she turns and faces him is Carly. While Sonny is lying on the floor and is engulfed in flames and trapped, Mike tells Sonny he can die as “Mike” or live on as the man he truly is, Sonny.  It is then Sonny calls out “Carly!”

So, what did you think of the episode? Do you think Carly and Jason will get married? Will Sonny tells Nina he remembers? What will Nina’s next move be? Are you glad Sonny seems to have his memory back? The episode featured another strong performance by Maurice Benard.  Share your thoughts below.
