Could he be a Rick recast? He does look like Justin Torkildsen, the actor that portrayed Rick and the actor paired the most w/ Frantz. Kyle Lowder needs to be fired from B&B and take acting lessons from his wife Ari Zucker, who’s actually a decent actress compared to Lowder. Or maybe he’s a Thomas recast? Online rumors say 1 of Ridge and Tay’s children gets killed off yet again. They shouldn’t kill off any more of Tay’s children. They should kill off 1 of Brooke’s children, and that should be Rick since Kyle Lowder has destroyed the character. Also,… Read more »

He’s suppose to play a guy naed Liam Cooper so he’s obviusly not playing Rick, Thomas, Eric Sharpe or any other actor already on the show or ex character. I think it would be cruel to kill of Taylor’s or Brooke’s children, Taylor has already lost 1 child and Brooke lost her brother 2 years ago and recently her mother and she has already lost children thru miscarriages. I think Kyle Lowder is a great actor and he has great chemistry with KKL, Brooke is really close to Rick and always has been, I think it’d destroy her to lose… Read more »

When I wrote that, Michael fairman did not update his article yet. When Fairman originally wrote this article, no details of the character’s name were released yet. Clifton will last on B&B if his character is paired w/ Amber since Brad bell can only write for Amber.

Tallulah, you’re the idiot! Open your eyes and read. Michael fairman did not update this entry when I first wrote. The first article did not specify Clifton’s character’s name. Why don’t you read my reply to Merima. And Kyle Lowder is and always will be a crappy actor and his “acting” will forever live in infamy in Talk Soup. LOL!

The internet is obviously a place for speaking your mind frankly. However, it’s disappointing that MF on air on soaps allows people to write insults and does not publish rebuttals to those insults. It was the same thing during the kish mess. My opinions abt the kish actors whining and bitterness was very unpopular on this board. Yet no one could refute the logic of my arguments regarding their firings. People were personally attacking me and calling me names, w/c is fine. I don’t care abt someone calling me names when I don’t even know these people personally. However, if… Read more »

That’s ok. It’s your board so what you say, goes. I’m glad (for lack of a more precise word) that what you wrote is directed at the entire board, even if it’s in reply to my comment. Things were much worse during the kish brouhaha. Being in entertainment, it makes people fair game, and if people think the critiques of soap actors, writers, exec producers, directors, shows, TPTB, etc are harsh here, they should read the other boards, w/c are a lot more intense.

I really hope he isn’t paired with Amber, I don’t even want to see her on B&B. I wish they’d just kill that idiot off.

Chanda: majority of the Forresters hated Amber when she left town. Ridge, Brooke, Stephanie, Bridget, Thomas and Rick hated her for trapping Ridge and Bridget in a pit at Big Bear and taping their icky kiss. Yes that storyline actually happened and they even went on a remote for that crap. So, it would actually be realistic if a murder mystery happened around Amber’s onscreen, there’s no way she can be revived, hallelujah death. They could even make Taylor the killer. Tay could have hit the booze again and blamed Amber for Tay’s second “death” and separation from Ridge and… Read more »

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.

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.

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.
