TONIGHT: GH and Marine Vet, Chris Van Etten Featured In All-New Episode Of ’68 Whiskey’

In what has been called the “Modern day M*A*S*H”, Paramount Network’s latest one-hour scripted series, 68 Whiskey, will feature a very familiar face to General Hospital’s viewers, when Marine vet, Chris Van Etten (Chet Driscoll) is part of the cast of the latest episode airing Wednesday night, February 5th at 10PMEST/9PMCST.

68 Whiskey is from noted Hollywood EP’s Brian Glazer and Ron Howard.  The show follows a multicultural band of Army medics stationed in Afghanistan on a base nicknamed “The Orphanage,” blending intense drama with  irreverent humor. Together, the medics navigate a dangerous and sometimes absurd world, relying on camaraderie, various vices, and occasionally, a profound sense of purpose, to carry them through.

As many know by now, Van Etten is a double-amputee.  Chris lost both his legs after he stepped on an IED (improvised explosive device), while serving in Afghanistan in 2012.

In his role on 68 Whiskey, Chris re-enacts the moment he lost his legs as his character “Louisville”, and then begs medics to give a letter he’s written to his wife.

For those who wonder just what does the title of the series, 68 Whiskey mean:  68W is the Military Occupational Specialty (MOS) code for the United States Army’s Combat Medic.

So, will you be checking out Chris’ performance tonight?  Hope he returns for more episodes as GH’s Chet? Share your thoughts below.

In addition, check out our two-part interview with Chris from a few years back, conducted for the Michael Fairman Channel, where Chris tells his real-life war story, how he has lived his life since losing his legs, and being part of the cast of General Hospital.

Very happy for the actor. I always thought he would have been good with Lucas as an alternative to Brad.

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.
