In case you missed last night’s two hour internet/radio special on BlazinRy Radio on the BlogTalkRadio Network, host, Ryan Holmes welcomed as his special guest and co-host for the evening, On-Air On-Soaps Michael Fairman for the OLTL Finale Special.

Michael shared this thoughts on the finale and the conclusion of One Life to Live after its 43-year run on network television.  Michael and Ryan also heard from callers who shared their heartbreak and sentiments at losing their favorite soap. And you, the fans of OLTL, made this BlogTalkRadio Special the number one most listened to broadcast on Friday and Saturday on their entire Internet radio network!

In addition, our very special guests, One Life to Live’s John-Paul Lavoisier, Melissa Archer and Kristen Alderson all gave insight for the first time publicly on what went down behind the scenes during the taping of their final scenes, and their final moments together as a cast at ABC, and much more. The talented trio and Llanview favorites also took time out to field questions from the fans.

The big question of the night as to would Melissa Archer be joining Michael Easton over at General Hospital, was also responded to by the actress.  Make sure to listen to the show for her answer! During the special it was revealed by the OLTL stars that they were all gathering at the Alderson’s to watch the final episode of One Life for the first time that aired earlier in the day.

Michael, I enjoyed your radio show last night. It was so great to hear from your three guests And how lucky were those call-ins to be able to speak with JP, Kristen, and Melissa. Each one was very out going in their reparte’ with the guests. I do have to say though, I tried to call many times and couldn’t get through. But I did listen to the full 2 hours and thought they were very easy to talk to for those that were able to get through.I understand that your show was number one on that network. The show… Read more »

Trevor I think you did Todd the best!! You had the moves, facial expressions and I just think you played it perfect. I know the long die hard fans watched Roger back and he’s okay but he is certainly no Trevor St. John. Thank you for all the years you played such a wonderful Todd.

(Barb, I didn’t know U were nearby. We got to get together for lunch toward our movement). Lol

This I got off another forum….is there truth to this Michael or any possibility?? ‘Hey Guys, Remember the hints I gave you yesterday about the two more on their way to GH from OLTL? Many of you guessed Trevor St John (especially after what I reminded you about today along with the hints from yesterday). I told you again and again that Victor was not dead, Todd did not kill him, and that you would see him again before the show closed (we have come full circle today). Dry those eyes my fellow Trevor St John fans.. You will have… Read more »

Raven’s. She stated that TSJ would be going to GH but nothing official has been confirmed by the network.

Raven is not a reliable source. She’s just speculating like the rest of us are doing on a daily basis.

So what that she was right about All My Children and One Life to Live being cancelled. She just predicted what many have predicted would happen.

Below is the “who and what”, I am talking about. You wrote below, you gave hints yesterday. I, am simply asking hints from where, whom, and where did you get the hints from. I am following the conversation from your written words below. Therefore it you dont have the answer’s to your OWN post, quite frankly, you are making NO sense! You’re on here conversating, conversing, giving information WE ARE ALL SEEKING, and then you have the NERVE to say, U “owe nobody no explanation! ” What? Then don’t give information that leads into a discussion. Now THAT MAKES SENSE.… Read more »

Wouldn’t it have been easier just to ask where the post came from instead ‘numbering’ points to me??

Dear Michael, Thank you so much for the radio interviews. Thank you to JP, Melissa, Kristen for taking the time to call in.:) I just want to say to the actors , thank you!

I honestly enjoyed the show and hearing from all 3 special guests. From my perspective all three of them have given Emmy winning material each to numerous to name. I wish that they all submitted their best work. The cast and crew at OLTL are all appreciated so much.
Michael,I also appreciate what you bring to the soap opera genre.It’s like giving back.:)

Kassie DePavia (Blair Manning, OLTL) posted the following on her Official Website: “I must say the ads and press release by ABC is a little misleading and I feel I need to clarify to all my friends, family and fans…wondering when I’m moving to Los Angeles.

TONIGHT: 73rd Primetime Emmy Awards on CBS

Who will take home the gold at Sunday night’s 73rd annual Primetime Emmy Awards?  Well, from the looks of it .two heavy favorites going into it are Ted Lasso in the comedy categories, and The Crown in the dramatic categories, but as we have seen on previous Emmys there may be upsets afoot.

Other leading contenders through the night will include the series: The Mandalorian, WandaVision, The Handmaid’s Tale, Saturday Night Live, Lovecraft CountryThe Queen’s Gambit and Mare of Easttown.

Cedric the Entertainer will host the three-hour special on CBS beginning at 8 pm EST emanating from the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles.  Pandemic and all there will be a return to an opening number.

The broadcast’s executive producer, Ian Stewart, confirmed an opening number, when he previously told Deadline, the number “is going to be a lot of people participating, singing, rapping.  It’s hopefully going to be a very impactful start, a ton of fun.”

The Primetime Emmys will have nominees in attendance, with a more limited amount virtually, and those who have tickets can stay in the venue through the whole show, unlike the Grammys or Oscars were those nominated were ushered in and out.  Look for the Emmys to take place outside the theatre under a tent.

One Life to Live alum Renée  Elise Goldsberry (Ex-Evangeline) will be competing in the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie for her role in Hamilton.  Another OLTL alum, Jonathan Groff (Ex-Henry), is nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie for his role in Hamilton, as well.

In the Outstanding Actor in a Drama Series, Sterling K. Brown tries to win another Emmy for his role as Randall Pearson on This Is Us.   To view all the nominees, head on over to the TV Academy’s website.

This past June, CBS also aired the 48th annual Daytime Emmy Awards in a pre-packaged show for broadcast due to Covid-19 restrictions.

So, who are you rooting for to win the gold at the 73rd annual Primetime Emmy Awards? Comment 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.
