On the heels of viewers getting the eerie feeling that something is not quite right with General Hospital’s little Jake (James Nigbor), news out of Soap Opera Digest on Wednesday has that fan favorite Jon Lindstrom (Kevin Collins) is returning to the ABC soap for some upcoming episodes!

With Lindstrom making a return, that means that Dr. Kevin Collins will be back on the scene! Might he be being helping out little Jake with some therapy sessions? Perhaps, or maybe he will help Morgan Corinthos (Bryan Craig)?  And, what about Jake AKA Jason (Billy Miller)?  This guy may need some help trying to unscramble his past!

But Lindstrom’s return even surprised him! The actor related: “I was very happily surprised to get a call from (Casting Director) Mark Teschner asking if I’d be interested in making some appearances. I was so pleased to go and romp with my old friends at GH again.”

Lindstrom last appeared on the ABC sudser back in 2014.

So, glad to hear Jon is coming back to GH? What do you think brings him back on to the canvas?  Comment below!

ok..
Little Jake would be referred to a child therapist or physiatrist..
I doubt Dr. Kevin Collins is qualified to work with children which is whole different thing..

Since Kevin is not a child therapist or physiatrist I will say he is there for Morgan or perhaps Kiki..

Considering all doctors on GH act as jack of all trades with little distinction between specialties (for example, I remember brain surgeon Patrick acting as a pediatrician when Britt brought Ben/Rocco back from his kidnapping), I wouldn’t bat an eye at Kevin counseling Lil’ Jake.

I highly doubt his qualifications as a child psychiatrist would come into play. If the story line involves Jake, I’m just happy they are bringing back a legacy character instead of using a random actor to play a child psychiatrist.

Yes, is it not refreshing that they are not introducing yet another brand new character to the overly saturated canvas with no acting experience?

@su000… I read he may be back to help Anna…

Yes, Fanny. Poor Anna is a mess. Paul is making me seethe over his subtle torture of Anna.
Also, let’s not forget that Patrick recommended Hayden see Dr. Kevin. The good Doc will be quite busy.

@CeeCee…Hello Sweets…
There are numerous candidates on canvas that would benefit greatly from
a psych consultation with Kevin. Let’s hope he stays on long enough to help
them all.

They could have a spin-off called General Asylum. Kevin could be the doctor. Milo and Alice could be the bouncers. The patients would include Sonny, Carly, Morgan, Valerie, Nina, Franco, Ric, Alexis, Jake (big and little), Nikolas, Hayden, Olivia, Spencer, Ava, Paul, and others to be confirmed. Or committed.

That LSD trip that Heather sent Olivia on is still packing one helluva punch!! The most notable symptom is Olivia running around in EXTREMELY public places talking to others or just to herself saying things LOUDLY…such as “No one must ever know that the biological father of my child is really mob kingpin Julian Jerome. Did you hear me??? No one can find out that JULIAN JEROME is my baby’s father!!”

Hello, my Fanny. You always make me feel so good, with your endearment.
I, too, love the Doc. Sadly I really did not get to know him as Dr. Collins too well. But I enjoyed watching him with Lucy. He seems to be well-received by the audience. I do hope he has a longer run this time around. A’ bientot.

Patrick

“oh, lordy” are they dumbing down Olivia

just like, Sonny, w/ Avery
just like, Victor, w/ Christian
just like, Julian, w/ Leo

any thing… to get Julian out of Alexis clutches

would work for me

th lesser of two evils… as Olivia … granted I like her work…. doesn’t reel that much.. but the sex appeal is that much… better with Julian

Totally grateful for Jon’s return as Dr. Kevin….but, what about Lucy, where is Lucy? What about Kevin and Lucy scenes? Has ANYTHING transpired with Kevin and Lucy’s relationship? Did they end up divorcing? Are they together? We’ve been left with no answers. I do hope we see Lucy reappear, too. Otherwise, it’s a big disservice to these legacy characters, so Kevin now after a long absence just pops back into action to counsel Little Jake? Come GH, give us some updates with Kevin and Lucy. I hope we hear and see them.

I’d like to know that, as well, Jeremy. I love this couple together….I would love to see more of their interaction myself.

Speaking of Liz. I know she’s the most ‘persona non grata’ on stage, right now; but, Patrick wasn’t her acting as calamitous as it gets? She was impressive, as she circled Hayden like a bird of prey, ready to swoop and feast on the spoils. And, her eyes, the cataclysmic change in her face….I really saw evil. Rebecca really worked that scene today.

Patrick

i’m still so involved in the ; is it Liz or Sam ? I’m awstruck at how vocal… the Sam and Jason fans are…. Liz made a mistake…( ONE ) by all accounts, of all that I’ve read and learned… why is she burned at the stake ? ! and yes… it is out of character… for her to have “given” in to her needs… ???? it’s indescribable… selfish? what? thought of her ownself, first ? is evil incarnate? I adore this woman… all these posts… ie: that Liz can’t seem to not live without a man… in her life…… Read more »

@Patrick. ….thing is, Patrick. Liz did not just make one mistake. She continues making the same mistake every day, every hour, every second she holds the truth from Jason. That’s what is unforgivable. As I said a few times before, her only redemption is if she’s diagnosed as nuts. There’s another patient for our good doctor Kevin. Lol. I am very disappointed in her, but I still think Rebecca has found her niche. She’s so good at playing the bad girl. Kelly is not even in the running. She is not adept at either. She goes through her scenes like… Read more »

Very few people do “bitch face” like Mizz Becky. LOL. And it’s extra funny and cool because her character is not one you could categorize as a bitch. Its almost like her back arches and her feathers get all ruffled.

@Dylan.
Hi, Dylan.
You said it, when you mention Liz seemingly arching her back, I have this vision of a virago in the guise of a helpless little kitten who hides very sharp claws. Appearances are deceiving, are they not?
I found it tres amusing when Liz questioned Hayden’ s sincerity…..” Every word that comes out of your mouth is a lie.” That’s rich….Those words are fraught with irony. Say WHAT?!?!?!?!
Actually, I do believe that Ms Lizzie is stepping in caca; digging her own grave in the process.

Maybe he’s coming back to counsel Emma, Nicholas and Cam when they realize that Josselyn suddenly out aged them by about 5 years.

Kevin is clearly going to treat Morgan and/or Lil’ Jake, but I really hope he has scenes with Lucy too. I love them together and this might be the last chance for the show to fix them.

Great news! I hope they dont weigh him down with Lucy! I would NEVER take that bimbo back! Although Moran, I mean Morgan is beyond help, I’m sure this is why Kevin is returning.

Lucy is not a bimbo, You seem unstable. lol. Heather Webber needs a roomate. You should join her, and make Heather s BLT. Lucy is a wonderful character and Lynn Herring is a terrific actress. Dont bash and diss Lucy, I will find you and crush you like a bug. Lol.

I’m with you, Timmm! I cannot stand that hyperactive hussy, and never could…even back in the day when she debuted as the supposedly meek librarian with the secretly uninhibited social life.

On today’s show Hayden was referred by Patrick to the good shrink Dr. Collins.

The bigger ??. Why wasn’t little Jake taken for counseling immediately–poor writing obviously! Kidnapped by a madwoman, kept however kindly on a Mediterranean island with a nanny, no socialization, then taken to America to a family he barely remembers. Sure, he can just join his brothers at the breakfast table, no sweat, and lead a regular life.

People are right–there’s no shortage of patients for Kevin!

Hi, Anne. You have just summed up little Jake’s probable state of mind in a nutshell. Additionally, you have subtly depicted Miss Lizzie lost in her own little ‘netherworld’, looking at her crazy-fantastic life with Jason through rose-colored glasses….her favorite color. She needs as much psychoanalysis as her son, if not more. This whole scenario only reinforces my belief that the writers, in general, do not think ahead; ( I have noticed GH adopting this practice more than any other soap) they do make stuff up as they go along. Otherwise, taking little Jake to check his mental state, as… Read more »

kudos to the new head writing team ( s)

for going their

I don’t know… i’m giving the actor… who , as the original Jake.. has come back… that much more creative… for such a young person… to share his craft

i’m still in tears and angst over what little we’ve seen Liz.. and the danged GH production… missed the beat… and heart beat of audience pull…

if they raally want to do a “fun storyline” at least for me. Why not do a VeT triangle. I’d love to see Felicia and Kevin ..they had great chemistry but it was too weird in the beginning due to Ryan. but with the friendship of Lucy, Felicia ,Mac and Kevin..what if ? what if trying to “help” Kevin and Lucy…Felicia and Kevin get involved. That would really make things complicated and give all these vets something to do..Then maybe they could get Laura involved with Mac, throwing in Lucy/Scott. A real VET love mess which would shake up PC.… Read more »

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.
