If you caught Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital, the show opened up with a melancholy Patrick Drake (Jason Thompson) strumming his birthday gift  …  an acoustic guitar.

The gift was given to him by his current lady love, Sam (Kelly Monaco).  Earlier, Sam turned down Patrick’s marriage proposal saying she is not ready quite yet and that the timing was bad.   Sam related she had to through the next few days, because it would have been her and Jason’s (Billy Miller) fourth wedding anniversary.  So with that, Patrick wrote a new song on his brand new guitar, while Sam was remembering Jason as she went through a box of their shared belonging.

As Patrick sang the song, which contained the lyrics: “I can’t tell you what hurt first.  The regret of my question, or the truth in your words.  Love has shown me there’s always an open door.  So be careful what you wish for, ” Sam overheard the good doc singing it, and noted its content.  The tune was also played over the action of other scenes at the beginning of the episode.

Many fans took to social media since the episode aired asking Jason Thompson whether or not he penned the tune that he sang? And the answer was a resounding, “Yes” as he clarified on Twitter.   Today, Jason posted the lyrics to the song which is entitled “Sailor Short on Wind”.

So, what did you think of the song and it’s lyrics? Did you enjoy seeing Jason sing on GH again? Do you think Patrick should be more upset with Sam turning down his marriage proposal?  Share your thoughts below!

The song is okay but Jason isn’t much of a singer and needs to stick to acting.

I actually like the intonation of his voice. He is better than a lot of bellyachers out there who pose as singers. And, I do love his hair.

The song was a nice touch and made for an effective opening. I think Patrick’s reaction has been appropriate and, happily, has not been written in a cliched way. Jason Thompson is so good in the role – really natural and completely believable.

Only if they have a new actress who can make a commitment to GH. Get tried of Kim coming and going because of her other career ambitions.

The way he’s been acting lately, when I saw him with the guitar I expected to hear Dr Drake sing,”I am Woman” by Helen Reddy.
All kidding aside, the song was very nice.

Good one, Harry! With it being GH, we know it wouldn’t be another Reddy hit, “Peaceful.”

Since we’re getting to know who Jake is very soon it’s funny how Sam can’t commit to Patrick. I’m guessing she’s going to find that out real soon too.
I don’t like when actors write and sing on their soaps.
Frisco however was so different.

Ooooh Frisco can sing anytime!!!

Wow, terrific lyrics! Funny, Shay and I were just talking about the lack of A song on a soap like they used to do on soaps in the 80’s. [“Lady of my Heart”, ode to Felicia from Frisco.] Its nice to see and I couldnt help but see Dr. Noah Drake in that scene. Patrick and Noah really could pass for father and son and I’d love to see them perform together. Some of the fans complain about the mob element and want the hospital in GH to return. Well, hire Dr. Drake as Chief of Staff.

The lyrics of “Sailor Short on Wind” are profound & poetic.
J.T. did a really beautiful job on the song.
I enjoyed his sincere performance. The song suites mood & atmosphere of
what was going on between Sam & Patrick.
Sam, as always looked beautiful & compassionate.
I love the dynamic between these two engrossing characters.
(Don’t get how anyone would call them boring!
I’ll miss Samtrick with J.T. & K.M. When they’re over!)

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.

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.

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.
