The Scoop On Shirley Jones Guest Appearance On General Hospital!

The Partridge Family mama, Shirley Jones has already taped her appearance on General Hospital, as had been previously announced.   When news circulated that Jones was making a guest stop in Port Charles, fans began speculating that Shirley would play a character perhaps in the Silas mystery storyline!

But today, according to an item from TV Guide Magazine’s Michael Logan, some new scoop has emerged at what the legendary Jones is doing on the 50-year-old soap opera!

Shirley will play the role of Mrs. McClain, “a lonely widow who sees something strange and disconcerting while visiting her husband’s grave.”  Mrs. McLain “comes across a suspicious gravedigger late one night at the cemetery and takes her suspicions to Dante Falconeri (Dominic Zamprogna) at the PCPD, thinking this might have something to do with the fugitive the police are looking for.”

So this begs the question, will Mrs. Partridge err McClain be the key to solving where on earth is Carly (Laura Wright) thanks to loony tunes Heather Webber (Robin Mattson)?   Jones appears on the February 5th episode of the ABC soap opera!

What do you think of the role Shirley is playing on GH?  Last time Jones visited the world of daytime soaps, she played Collen Brady on Days of our Lives.

Heather most likely buried Carly(alive) in the same gravesite where Franco put Heather! Thought S.J. would be Ninas mother…how about Erika Slezak and Jerry ver Dorn guest staring as Nina’s parents then? (commenters be sure to get flu shot…i didnt and its horrible…one min. im fine and the next im misreable…ugh!!!)

Laura Wright must be on vacation if she’s going to be off screen for so long! Wish that meant less of Franco, but I’m afraid it means we’ll see more of him as he’s accused of her murder. I can do without the hysterical Michael screaming and yelling and accusing!

I love how RC gives us mystery writing, at times..
In an interview, RC once said;
His reading as a young man and I’d guess to date was mystery novels..
He mentioned Agatha Christie as a favorite ..
RC’s fav TV Show is Scandal ..

It somewhat shows in his writing.. in my opinion.

Nice to see Shirley Jones, however, it means that the Carly disappearing story will continue longer than hoped for. So boring. Heather is beyond ridiculous at this point.

Great to hear Carly will be gone a while (and hopefully Franco, too). Can’t wait to see Shirley Jones and I hope this is a recurring role.

So then she’s NOT going to be “Dusty Walker’s” mom….Wonder if she will have any future scenes with Anthony Geary? Would be the second time around for them, as he once played Laurie’s beau on the PF, and as a minister, no less!!!! (Too funny….) Speaking of the show, such sad news about Dave Madden…..R.I.P. Reuben Kincaid!!!

So…they can’t find the money to keep Genie Francis or Tristan Rogers. But there’s a few bucks for big ol Shirl. Neat.

Well we know Carly wasn’t buried and Luke just came upon Carly in the boathouse and in preview of Monday episode, she tells Luke that Heather kidnapped her.

Another bait and switch, Re-Ron does it again. next up Donna Mills. As someone else said. We can’t keep Genie or Tristan, but we get loads of OLTL on contract no less. I find myself watching less and less. I get the feeling Re-Ron is getting even with ABC for cancelling OLTL by turning it into OLTL2 Plus call it what you will, Franco is Todd even up to the make him a hero save kids and carley be a hero everyone forgets he was a serial killer, torturer. YUCK.

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.
