There you go Jim, Nina should wrestle Crimson away from Julian and her and Maxie and Lucy would be a riot together!

RRRRRRRobin! Love it! It is all about her love for Stone and AIDS itself. Why not? I cannot wait to see the scenes where Robin meets Griff AND I bet Griff and Emma will perform together at the Ball. Welcome back Kim!

Yes, my Timmmy. It would be out of this world if Robin and Griffin were twins separated at birth. Picture this: they see each other from across the room; their eyes lock; speaking without words; something otherworldly, bigger than they …..a force pulls them together. Then, they remember their time in-utero together. LOL.

In – our – ideally perfect soapie land… this would be one of the biggies danged it tho… fans were so pulling… for Griffin to be Anna’ biological LOL… your post just brings tears all for Anna… I was watching Tuesday ep last night… when Griffin and Emma .. looked like they were play acting in Anna living room… it just looked SO RIGHT Anna and her two pups… so… i’m happy with that… BUT… Grifin is still THAT mystery i’m gonna hope with you… that the GH writers… just bring it HOME… and since Griffin is still a newbie…… Read more »

I’ll watch GH again just to see Kimberly McCullough/Robin (the only Robin ) back on GH with her daughter Emma. It will be GH again with them and other Vets. The characters like Ava, Hayden, Sabrina, and Nina (nor do the actors who play them) belong on GH. In fact, it doesn’t look like my GH anymore with these Chara a

Glad to see Robin. Perhaps she can talk Sonny out of using Corleonish stunts/warnings to scare Ava from taking her baby back.

I do not Robin, never have never will..
I can not give a ”WHOOPIE!

Sonny should never be made into a monk, he is the badazz Sonny Corinthos!!
I want to see the man do his Sonny stuff and burry this saint routine that does not fit him.. LOL 🙂

ummm I’m going to invite the Sonny character to your house for dinner !! ahaa!

Lol, SuzieQ.
I am not very familiar with Robin, but I like her….I watched past episodes, as she aged on GH. So sweet.
Sonny will have a long way to go to get to my house, su.
So, you want Sonny to get his mojo back, is that it? Hmmmmm. I’m not into the mob or killing. You know that, right? However, “cosa nostra” doesn’t seem to be moving from GH.
Futhermore, Julian is still soooo deep into the muck, the ‘malavita’ is here to stay.
Do you think Sonny or Anna will kill Carlos? We shall see.

Absolutely excited! The NB would not be the same without Lucy and Kimberly (Robin) has always been the heart of the NB and it is a shame that it took this long to bring her back.

I am so happy to hear of these two actresses returning for the Nurses’ Ball. It is this kind of “guest star” that I want to see; not some “celebrity” with no link to the GH canvas. Returning GH stars will attract me more than anything else, so for that, I say Thank You to TPTB for pulling this off.

I was never a BIG fan of Robin, though I didn’t dislike her either. But when she had that deeply moving scene last year with Jason on the bridge, I began to appreciate her more. Of all the women in Jason’s “new” life, she was the only one other than Carly that immediately touched me. That was a beautifully underplayed scene by Kimberly & Billy, proving again that less can really be more. So I will enjoy her return to the ball. And it’s worth having Lucy at the ball just for the costume changes. That is one gal who… Read more »

That was it, those scenes on the bridge were great. In those few short moments it seemed as though Kim and Billy bonded better than Sam or Liz? Not as a pair but as friends and actors.

Good news indeed that Robin will be back for the NB in a normal capacity for the first time in an age….however, since we already know that her spouse, Patrick, shall be otherwise engaged in Genoa City, would it be too much to hope that perhaps her father-in-law, Dr. Noah Drake, could accompany her instead? What a welcome sight Rick Springfield would be! Having said that, I’m none too pleased that we are in for the umpteenth installment of “I Loathe Lucy” to endure. Whilst I adore tradition, there is also something to be said for providing a fresh spin… Read more »

Sweet Shay, you hit it out of the park AGAIN! Rick subbing for Jason! That would be cool and Rick is always promoting his music! Its a win win. I have to say, Jason is doing well as Billy Abbott BUT not as well as I thought. I would rather see them shelve the character after this whole PASSKEY story is over! Billy Miller could return in a year and blow the place up! ANOTHER point we agree on, NO Lucy! She isnt on the show currently and I dont need another wardrobe malfunction. Mudder and Finn could have Lucy… Read more »

@Timmm….I agree it would be so great to see Rick back at the NB, be it as Noah Drake, Eli Love….or himself!!! Any of the three—or combination thereof—would be fine by me! As for my disappointment about the hosting arrangements, yes, I was truly hoping for a more original choice this time around….I simply don’t get the desire for the same old, same old act in that respect when there are other capable options already present on the GH canvas. Lastly, I did reply to your thoughtful post on the previous thread, although not directly to your inbox due to… Read more »

Agreed, guys. I like Lucy Coe, but, I find her a little too neurotic….she gets so excited when speaking, I feel I can’t catch my own breath.
Jason Thompson is a big disappointment for me as Billy A; as much as Billy M is as Jason. He needs to go back to being Jake. That demon-like stare into nothingness, as he was chocking the life out of Nikolas, made him look like a psychopath.
Nah; me no like.

Glad to see Lucy’s back to oversee the Nurses Ball. It’s her baby, it just seems right. She’s helped put Humpty Dumpty together on many occasions in her own inimitable style, along with the inspiration and help of Sabrina, Felix, Laura, and almost Tracy in other years. Even some of Lucy’s predictable mis-calculations lend a kinda of charm for me. Except last year. But we’ve been promised way better this year.

I do love Kimberly’s Robin, but I admit that I get somewhat annoyed with how she just pops in and out. I prefer stories that I can get invested in. With that said, Robin is such an important part of the Nurse’s Ball and it makes sense she would return. 🙂

You know what? I’m ready to let go of Robin. Especially now that there’s no hope she’ll ever return with Patrick. I’m happy they got their happy ending and I’m just as happy to hear about their lives off camera. Anna can reference visiting them from time to time; and Emma can come back for breaks and summers until they rapid age her into being a doctor at GH.

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.

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.
