What most I am looking for at The Nurses Ball is seeing Robin walk in and see Patrick kissing Sabrina! And let the fireworks begin! Luke & Laura find LuLu! And realize they both belong together! Seeing Rick Springfield Rock N Roll! I saw Rick Springfield years ago in person at Radio City Music Hall! Really enjoyed the show and he was wearing his black pants that had zippers on the side of each leg! Nikos comes out of his Coma & so does Robert Scorpio! Happy 50th GENERAL HOSPITAL! And many more!

oh yes! I saw him in concert in 2006. It was fantastic. He got up and walked thru the crowd using the armrests to walk on and we helped to support him… some even caught him (on the butt!) when he started to lose balance. What fun, huh? te he he

Girls still threw panties on the stage for him. Funny! and he did the strum the guitar with a bouquet of roses, which shreds them and they go everywhere. But yeah, that was a great concert, even better cuz it was a round rotating stage and smaller venue.

I will absolutely be tuning in for this major milestone not only in GH’s history, but in the history of this wonderful genre. I am sooooo proud of all those that have worked sooooo hard at GH both in front of and behind the cameras to even make it to this landmark event, especially since just one year ago, we did not even know if GH had a future to look forward to. I cannot wait to see how everything plays out, and I am sure we will not be disappointed. I look forward to everything. Happy 50th GH, and… Read more »

Actually Days killed off half its cast several years ago and then later brought back all of them which most of us thought wouldnt happen…so i have to say they did it first, even though it seemed to have been their plan all along. Im excited GH is doing it!!!

I am hoping that the long-suffering A.J. FINALLY finds happiness with Elizabeth, and wonder what they will do at the NB. I’m crossing my fingers for a real L&L reconciliation, and Jax & Brenda return to town married (as it should have been from the get-go). As to Sabrina, I can’t accept her with Patrick knowing Robin is still alive- she’s better off with Milo. Bobbie’s been throwing hints about her son Lucas looking for Mr. Right- could it be Felix DuBois? And will someone PLEASE give Monica a man?? It would be great if Alan were actually alive and… Read more »

I’ve been watching GH (and all the ABC soaps, RIP) since I had a babysitter who watched them all. She had to take me to the dentist one day and the Muzak in the waiting room was the song playing when Luke raped Laura at the disco. of course, I said his out loud which embarrassed my poor babysitter to have people thinking she was letting a child watch such things!

Loved today’s episode- especially the prolonged scene between Laura Wright and Jackie Zeman. Love, love, love Zeman- and it was great to see these two pros together. If I’m not mistaken, it is probably the first time Zeman and Wright have had a long scene together. I really hope they keep Zeman after the anniversary episodes- she’s still fantastic! Is there a Frank/Ron fan club somewhere? They have not only saved this soap, but made it “fun to watch” again.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Carly Admits To Sonny She Was Falling Back In Love with Jason

On Friday’s episode of General Hospital, Carly (Laura Wright) and Sonny (Maurice Benard) finally had the “talk”.  You know, the one about what Sonny really walked in on the night he “returned from the dead” on Carly and Jason’s (Steve Burton) wedding night?  Yeah, that one.

Sonny has already had a conversation with Jason, where Jason admitted he was starting to fall again for Carly, even though they were originally getting married to show a united front for the five families.

Now coming to confront Carly, Sonny is at first greeted by her with “Mike’s” cowboy hat, where she says the man he was in Nixon Falls is a mystery to her. Sonny tells her he spoke with Jason and so Carly is compelled to admit that she and Jason would have slept together on their wedding night, if Sonny hadn’t shown up alive and in the bedroom!

Sonny’s clearly upset about his best friend and his wife getting so close and rekindling their old feelings. Carly tells Sonny that, at first, Jason and she were just going through with the wedding for show, but later, they decided to make it a real marriage, and were falling in love.

When Sonny poses the question to Carly, if she has any residual feelings for Jason, she says they have gone back to being best friends, and how much she loves Sonny.  Carly points out that Nina (Cynthia Watros) did this to them – she kept them apart for nine months – and so much has happened that it’s been difficult for them to be together as it was in the past because of it.

In the end, despite what Nina had perpetrated on them, Carly and Sonny come to an agreement that they need to rebuild their relationship.  But the cowboy hat looms as we fade to black.

Clearly, the Jason and Carly relationship and almost consummating it on their wedding night, is not sitting well with Sonny; plus Sonny seems to continue to not really tear into Nina for her deception as much as someone would if he didn’t also have feelings for her.

So, what do you hope happens next? Do you want Sonny and Carly to work things out? Do you hope Sonny sleeps with Nina? If he does, and Jason goes back to Britt (now that they are going on another adventure together to locate Liesl) is Carly ultimately the odd woman out?  Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.
