Natalie confronts Marty about why Marty’s carrying around Liam’s paternity test results. Marty’s cryptic, so Natalie snatches the records from Marty’s bag. She furiously and unwittingly tears up the evidence that her baby really is John’s, but we see that Gigi, after swiping what she believes is the tape from Shane’s shrink visit, now holds the secret. John goes to talk to Dr. Buhari about Marty, but Dr. Buhari trumps him and then pulls back. John, tweaked, accepts Marty’s previous invitation to dinner, hoping to find out more. Because Jack filed a complaint against Rex, Brody is forced to question him. Starr’s thrilled when James tells Deanna that Ford loaned him the money for Deanna to leave town. Deanna doesn’t like it one bit. Deanna reveals to James that the reason she broke up with him is because his father forced her to. Blair overhears Tomas and Calmar. Blair looks forward to her date with Tomas. Rama and Cristian grow a little closer.

Niki drops in on Echo just to see her squirm, as Niki is holding a certain audiotape confession over Echo. Echo tries to nab the tape from Niki, but the pair is interrupted by Charlie’s arrival.  Niki makes her getaway and Echo is left jarred by the experience, worried that the tape may surface at any moment, thus destroying her relationship with Charlie. Tess and Ford prepare for the outcome of their custody suit. Tess confides in Ford how her attack on Viki enabled Niki’s appearance and the subsequent hatching of the plan to win Ryder. But Tess and Ford are uneasy as the hour grows late and Niki has yet to make her entrance. Joey and Natalie visit a sedated Clint. Joey learns of Natalie’s run-in last night with Tess and a Nikily-dressed Viki. Joey and Natalie confront Ford and Tess about the possibility that Niki is back. Cutter tells Aubrey that Kelly knows everything but told him she won’t out them. Cutter and Aubrey voice doubts about the other’s commitment to the plan, in light of perceived feelings for Tess and Joey. Cutter suggests that they have been presented with a solution to one of their problems: Why not help Clint (defenseless after his heart attack) into an early grave? Aubrey flat out refuses, but Cutter hasn’t abandoned the idea. Starr confesses to Blair her misgivings about Deanna. Deanna explains that she’s always been in love with James but was forced to abandon him when she made a deal with the devil. Now she’s back in Llanview hoping to rekindle her romance with James.

Joey and Natalie want to know if Viki is Niki as the fight for Ryder’s custody is decided. Ford and Tess don’t want Niki revealed. Niki takes the stand and says she’s giving up the fight for custody. Meanwhile, inside Viki’s mind, the struggle for dominance plays out between Jean and Viki. Viki wants Jean to release her but Jean tells her she’s only as strong as Viki herself. At one point Jean takes over in the courtroom and seems to advocate for Viki to take custody, but her effort fails. Viki passes out, overwhelmed and exhausted. Natalie and Joey panic and an ambulance is called. They summon Viki back, reminding her of her strength and importance. Jean convinces Niki that if Viki dies, so do they. Even Niki urges Viki not to give up without a fight. Ultimately Viki wakes up and she’s Viki. Despite Viki’s recovery, the appearance of her alters leads the judge to deny her bid for custody of Ryder. Tess and Ford’s celebration is brief, however, when the judge finds them unfit parents and intends to place their son in foster care. To everyone’s surprise, Aubrey convinces the judge to let her and Joey take temporary custody of the baby. Kelly prepares dinner for John, only to learn that John is cancelling their date to have dinner with Marty. He explains that it’s a fact-finding mission during which he hopes to determine Marty’s real mental state and to learn what she meant by her threats against Kelly and her cryptic comments about her role in his breakup with Natalie. Before John leaves for his date with Marty, Kelly gives him the encrypted document she found hidden in Todd’s office. Marty happily awaits John’s arrival for dinner and is visited by troubled Dr. Buhari, who urges her to tell John he’s Liam’s father. Marty refuses and at John walks in on an argument that has him at its center. Rex admits to Gigi that he was, in fact, behind Jack’s beating. Gigi confesses to her own crime, having taken the tape of Shane’s private psychiatric session from Buhari’s receptionist’s desk. Gigi and Rex prepare to listen to the tape, unaware that it isn’t Shane’s recording, but Marty’s, on which Marty confesses to having switched Liam’s paternity records. Cutter and Aubrey continue to clash over her growing feelings for Joey. Dorian arrives to visit Clint and warns Cutter and Aubrey she’ll tell Joey the truth about their scam as soon as possible. After Aubrey leaves, Clint wakes up and talks to Dorian privately, blasting her for causing the severity of his condition by her refusal to get him help. Cutter overhears and at tells Dorian she’s going to keep his relationship with Aubrey to herself or the world will know she nearly killed Clint Buchanan.

Marty covers to John, complaining that Dr. Buhari accused her of stealing the tape from her session. After Buhari goes, John plays along with Marty on their “date,” trying to find out what she’s hiding. She admits she has a confession to make, but before she tells him, she kisses him. Gigi and Rex are about to listen to the tape they believe is Shane’s but is really Marty’s and Natalie interrupts. When they tell her what they were doing, Natalie offers to help them out. Starr’s stunned to find Deanna still with James. They tell her Deanna’s story about why she broke things off with James. Deanna reveals that she’s staying in Llanview. Dani tells Tea about the syringe she and Nate found in Todd’s room. Tea reveals that she was suspicious of Tomas but isn’t anymore. Tea is starting to lose hope about Todd, but she regains it. Blair and Tomas have their date. Tomas ends up disabusing her of the idea that she’ll find something out from him about whether he shot Todd and they kiss.

Days Of Our Lives

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Marlena Becomes Possessed … Again!

On Tuesday’s episode of Days of our Lives, the devil had his way with his favorite person, Dr. Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall)! In story, leave it to Marlena to save Doug (Bill Hayes) by giving herself up to Satan!

As Doug revealed himself to be Satan while in a therapy session with Marlena in her office, a shook Marlena tries to comprehend what is happening! When the devil says if Marlena won’t accept him in, she will punish Doug, he does just that.

Poor Doug is left writhing in pain and on the floor, crying out for help! When we come back to the scene Marlena is not exactly right near his body, but sort of overlooking what is happening. Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) rushes into Marlena’s office to find Doug as Marlena stares blankly. Eventually, she calls for help.

After Doug is put in a hospital room and is monitored, Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) and Tripp (Lucas Adams) can’t find anything wrong with him. Meanwhile, Julie finds Marlena at the nurses station and asks what happened with Doug during their therapy session.  Marlena flashes back to what led to Doug writing on the floor, and clearly something is way off with Marlena, because she has now become possessed.

Later, Julie sits by Doug’s hospital bed as he opens his eyes, as he tells his beloved wife, “He left me and went in to her.”  A confused Julie is left to ponder what on earth Doug could be talking about.

When Marlena comes home to John (Drake Hogestyn) – who is already concerned with Johnny (Carson Boatman) being set on making a movie of Sami’s life story which includes points on Marlena’s original possession – she tells him Doug collapsed in her office. When the two hug, Marlena slowly opens her eyes  revealing that they are glowing yellow.  Yup! We are off to the races. Marlena is now once again possessed.

So, what did you think about the scenes between Deidre Hall and Bill Hayes? Are you enjoying the revisiting of the infamous ‘possession’ storyline thus far? Comment below.

General Hospital

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.
