Great news for Llanview fans!  While many have been commenting that all the actors thus far who have announced that they are participating in the upcoming Prospect Park reboots are from All My Children, well that ends tonight thanks to fan favorite Jerry verDorn!

The Daytime Emmy winner took to his Facebook page to announce he has signed on for the revival of One Life to Live! 

Jerry verDorn stated,  “Hello Everybody. One Life Lives.  And good things come to those who wait.  Or so it is said.  About an hour ago I agreed to be part of the OLTL revival and I’m thrilled to be involved in entertainment history as the show we love moves to other formats. The fans consistent drum beat of support played a large part in Prospect Park never giving up trying to find a solution. And today they announced it to the world.  With the cherry-on-the-top-news that Agnes Nixon has been hired as a consultant! For those who doubted, I don’t blame you as this has never been done before.  For those who never lost hope and never stopped writing and calling, well, good things come to those who wait.  Congratulations to you all. Welcome back to Llanview.  Love, Jerry verDorn.”

So soapers excited to see Jerry back in the saddle as Clint Buchanan?  Weigh-in on this exciting news!

Another HUGE get!!!! So important to get one of the Buchanan brothers on board! One down, 20 or so more to go.

This is so unbelievable! A year ago, it was all but dead and buried. And here we are, and there is a glorious light ahead. So, so proud of all this beautiful movement taking place in the right direction! THANK YOU Prospect Park!!!

This is getting more promising with each passing day, may it continue!!! I am glad to see Jerry aka Clint on board. Here is hoping his coming back will help lure Erika Slezak, Robert Woods and Hillary B Smith (although I believe she might be doing another online soap) back as well. I hope all of our beloved actors and actresses, who have not moved on to other shows or endeavors can all come back too, like Trevor St. John (Victor), Rex and Gigi, Roxy, Blair and her boys, Tea and her daughter, Shaun, Destiny and Mathew B, the hunky… Read more »

I’m hoping ME will head back to Llanview and Natalie & Liam 😉 Todd & Starr are working out nicely in Port Charles, so they can stay with brief pop-ins to visit Blair, Dorian, Vickie, etc.

Mr. Fairman, when you remove the R.I.P.s could you add “Pretty Little Liars” to your list? Other than GH and SOAPnet it is the ONLY ABC/D product I watch. It is an excellent drama featuring many soap actors. Thank you for your consideration.

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.

REPORT: Clayton Echard Cast as the Next ‘Bachelor’ for its Upcoming 26th Season

After all the turmoil of the previous ‘Bachelor’ seasons, it looks like the ABC reality-dating competition may have found their man.

Multiple sources are reporting that Clayton Echard, who no one has seen yet, and who appears as a suitor in Michelle Young’s season of The Bachelorette, has actually been given the nod to be the lead in the new upcoming 26th season of the series.

On Wednesday, leaked photos appeared online of Echard with a camera crew by E! News  questioning if he would be the new “Bachelor.”

Variety is saying that their sources are saying Echard is ABC’s choice for the lead, but that no official announcement will be forthcoming especially since Young’s season of The Bachelorette which bows October 19th had not even begun.

What we can glean on Echard from his Instagram page is that he is 28-years-old and from Missouri and played college football at U of Missouri and was signed as pro to play with tight end with the Seattle Seahawks, but he is now an orthopaedic saleman.

So, will you be watching the new season of The Bachelor when it comes around most likely in January 2022? Comment below.
