General Hospital

James Franco returning to GH just as Jason & Sam are set to wed!

Courtesy/ABC

Breaking news this morning out of TV Guide! It appears that James Franco is on his way back to General Hospital, yet again!  This time the Oscar nominated motion picture star will be returning to Port Charles as serial killer, “Franco” starting on the September 20th episode, which will coincide with just about the time Jason and Sam are set to finally wed!

Will “Franco” be so jealous of Sam (since he is beyond obsessed with Jason Morgan) that he will do finally do away with one of the lovebirds?

Well, according to TVG, this time Franco’s return is “longterm”! And that means soap fans can see the character on through the fall and possibly longer.   As for James himself, we all know he loves to multi-task and take on so many projects that he can’t even count on two hands.  God knows where he will find the time to do it all,  especially in lieu of the fact that in addition to appearing on GH, he will be debuting on Broadway this fall in Sweet Birth of Youth. But with the magic of soaps, he could tape a week’s worth of episodes and they could be strung out for months!

An ABC rep stated to TVG, “This is the baddie’s “most twisted plan yet” and that he’ll likely be pulling other characters into his web, including ditzy heroine Maxie Jones (Kirsten Storms) and bitch queen Carly Jacks (Laura Wright) and her baby Josslyn.

This will be Franco’s fourth trip to Port Charles.  So what do you think of this storyline development? Are you clamoring for more Franco, or no? Let us know.

I’m okay with Franco coming back but hoping he won’t do anything until after the wedding, Jason and Sam deserve a little time to be happy. Really not sure about “longterm”. So many of the storylines have gone on way too long and become stale and I can’t wait for them to end but maybe with Mr. Wolf now writing it will be different.

I hope Mr. Wolf will write that jason witness sam’s death. Just like Sonny did with Lilly. that will make jason change his life around the lost of his only son and his wife..

I am not looking forward to Franco, I think GH has enough “baddies” with Anthony Z, I was hoping with new writers GH would get back to “love in the afternoon” rather than focusing on the violence that seems to be the show’s focus point for last 10 years

i’m hoping he tries to go after jason’s othr love, Liz, how can franco not know about Liz? so i’m hoping its spread out more, instead of the usual people, so tire of every single plot revolving around Carly. A real good villian would stuff her in a basement somewhere not to be heard for , for months. now thats a real story there, lol

would of been a better plot if franco would reveal that claudia was alive, i miss sarah brown, she made claudia a complex villian who wasn’t appreciated till she was gone. but it wont happen since ms brown is heading to days. which sucks. she belongs at gh .

Welcome back, James Franco, I love it when you hit Port Charles. You always shake things up a lot and make General Hospital very exciting for the short time you are on the show. Can’t wait to see you – and those evil eyes of yours – always letting us know that you are getting ready to do something really evil!!! See you soon, my friend!!!!!

Please don’t bring him back! He is such a terrible actor. Did you not see his Oscars hosting???????

The last time he did anything good was on Freaks and Geeks and that was only good because of Linda Cardelini.

I’m ok with it seeing that Garin Wolf is in and Guza is out. I expect much better SL and material this go round. I don’t find a problem with Franco. James is a great actor. Love everything he’s been in. Past GH? Not so much. I am expecting good stuff from GW and the whole cast!

James Franco can do no harm, however bad. Just because he plays a baddie does not deter me from watchimg him spin his webs so brillliantly. He is fascinating to watch. So bring him on. I’ve been waiting to find out how his story plays out in the end.. Go Franco!…

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.
