Before Sarah and Patty can get further into their discussion, Jack arrives home wanting answers.

Alone, Sarah suggests that they keep up the doctor patient pretense in case they need to help each other down the line. Later, Sarah tells Patty that she needs her help with Michael but the two women end up butting heads instead. After talking to Phyllis, Jack realizes that Emily could be faking her pregnancy.

Meanwhile, the court is in an uproar and the judge asks Victoria if Billy’s claim is true but Victoria denies everything. Later, Victoria is hauled off but not before she admits to Victor that what Billy said was actually the truth. Nearby, Nikki pleads with J.T. to back down where Reed is concerned for Victoria’s sake but he refuses and Nick promises that J.T. is in for the fight of his life. Outside the courtroom, Jill realizes that Billy and Victoria were sleeping together just as J.T. arrives and the two come face to face.

Billy arrives at the station with the Newman’s but Chance refuses to let Billy see Victoria and he gives Billy a hard time after Billy gave him a false statement. J.T. goes to see Victoria and realizes that Billy’s confession was true and that Victoria is covering for someone and he immediately assumes its Victor. J.T. tells her that he is grateful that he was granted full custody because she made her choice when she chose to be let herself get arrested for her family rather than give her alibi and go home to her son. Later, Billy gets in to see Victoria but she is furious with him and throws his gesture hard back in his face so Billy tells her that go to someone else the next time she needs help. Nikki and Nick continue to believe that Billy’s outburst was a lie as Victor keeps quiet about Victoria’s confession. Meanwhile, J.T. arrives at the Chancellor mansion and clues both Mac and Chloe in on Billy’s tryst with Victoria. Later, Billy runs into Heather at Jimmy’s and propositions her. At the station, Michael shows the Newman’s the pen that Adam was killed with. Tucker agrees to stop dismantling Chancellor when Kay gives him back Jabot just as Jill arrives to hear the news and tells Kay what a slap in the face it will be to both the Newman’s and the Abbots to hear this. Later, Billy decides to pass on a night with Heather. Nearby, Jill tries to make her unemployment status work for her with Kay but Kay dismisses her.

J.T. assures Reed that he and Mac will be there for him while Mommy is away. Meanwhile, Nick admits that the pen was a present for him from Victoria. Tucker asks Ashley to trust him where Jabot is concerned but she tells him that he has made that impossible.

Meanwhile, Daniel offers to help Phyllis out with Summer when she can’t get a hold of Nick. Later, Nick and Victor tell Owen and Chance the truth about their struggle with Adam and how blood got on Nick’s jacket but Owen isn’t sure to believe their story after all the lies they have told. Jack is blown away when Neil and Ashley tell him that Kay is giving back control of Jabot to Tucker without a fight. Meanwhile, Patty stalks around the tack house as Phyllis is inside doing chores. Later, Jack calls Victor to tell him what is going on with Kay. Nearby, Kay reminds Tucker that no matter what part of his empire he takes away from her the only thing he can’t take away from her is her friends and family and that is something knows nothing about. Patty arrives to confront Phyllis and Phyllis gets a first hand look at exactly what Jack was talking about when he said how much “Emily” has changed. At the G.C.A.C., Murphy stands up to Tucker, to everyone’s surprise, and tells him to stop blaming Kay for his miserable life. Later, Phyllis tells Patty about the doubts Jack is having regarding marrying her and Patty suddenly decides to play the sympathy card and starts yelling about her pregnancy and takes off. Phyllis calls Jack after Emily is gone to tell him about their encounter. Kay tells Murphy about Tucker’s blackmail and Tucker tries to spoil her in order to take her mind off what she has given up. Ashley and Neil go home together and finally make love.

Chance and Owen drop the charges against Victoria only to turn around and charge Nick with Adam’s murder. Meanwhile, Phyllis calls to check when “Emily” signed into the ranch. She is caught off guard to learn that she never did and wonders how she got onto the ranch without anyone seeing her. Victor calls moments later to tell her about Nick’s arrest. Later, Jack arrives home and Patty tells him that she lost the baby and Jack confronts her with the truth that she was never actually pregnant. Paul brings Heather to visit Emily, who barely registers who Heather is, but asks if Jack has figured out the truth yet. Meanwhile, Jack refuses to believe anymore of Patty’s lies, even as she tells a story of going to see Phyllis and Phyllis causing her miscarriage. Later, Patty tells Jack that she has a condition from childhood that made it difficult for her to conceive in the first place and that Phyllis is the one he should be blaming for interfering in their marriage. Jack isn’t sure if he can trust her and decides to take a walk. Michael stops by Gloria and Jeff’s to check on Fen and wonders what is going on with “Lauren” when he hears from Gloria that she hasn’t checked in Fen once all day.

Emily gives Heather a cup she has been drinking out of and asks her to test the DNA. Later, Jack asks Paul to help him track down Emily’s younger brother. Meanwhile, Patty goes to see Emily and asks her to be her doctor again. Emily becomes concerned when Patty tells her that it may be time to teach Jack a lesson. Michael is not at all thrilled when Sarah tells him that she bought him a sports car to make up for the things she has done lately. Meanwhile, Jana and Lauren reminisce on the love they share with Michael and Kevin as Jana decides to try and make a psychic connection with Kevin by meditating on the word “zoo.” At the penthouse, Kevin, Gloria and Jeff use the Ouija board to try and find a clue to where Jana is and it spells out the word “zoo.” Later, Sarah tries to smooth things over with Michael but before she can she is thwarted by Fen wanting to spend time with her. As she is reading a book to Fen, a spider runs across the book and Sarah kills it, traumatizing Fen and Michael realizes that there is something truly off about his wife. Sarah realizes that she needs to get Michael on her side so she allows Lauren to call Michael herself. Meanwhile, Gloria tells Kevin that the clue is because Fen wanted Jeff to take him to the zoo and Kevin is disheartened once again. Later, while on the phone, Lauren tries to subtly tell Michael that he is being tricked. After Sarah and Daisy leave, Lauren tells Ryder that if he tells Michael the truth she will take care of him for the rest of his life. All alone, Jana tells Lauren that there is something really wrong with her head. Ryder and Daisy go to the coffeehouse but Daisy drags him out reminding him about their restraining orders just as Kevin gets a glimpse of Ryder. Meanwhile, Michael tells Sarah that he is moving in with Gloria because Fen doesn’t even feel safe around her anymore.

Nick tells Michael everything that happened with Adam that night as Phyllis, Sharon and Victor look back on their own actions with regret. Later, Chance questions Sharon about how Nick’s jacket got out of tack house in the first place. Jack refuses to let Patty lie to him anymore, every chance he gives her to prove to him that she is telling him the truth about the baby she rejects. Jack hopes that seeing Jamie will help “Emily” get back to her old self but Patty refuses to stick around which only irritates Jack further. Later, Patty goes to see Emily for information on her brother. As Jana’s condition worsens, Sarah refuses to help her making it clear that Jana is expendable. Sarah taunts Lauren, telling her that everything is perfect at home with Michael and Lauren but when they are alone, Jana reminds Lauren that everything Sarah is saying is a lie and they need to find a way to escape. Later, Sarah grows impatient when Patty doesn’t show up for their meeting. Meanwhile, Emily tells Patty that Jamie is very refined, intellectual type that graduated with honors from school. However, when Jamie arrives at the Abbott mansion, it becomes quite clear that Emily is setting Patty up. Victor and Michael confront Owen, trying to rattle him to get him to drop the case against Nick but Owen walks away unfazed and Victor wonders just as confident Michael truly is that he can win.

Later, Jana manages to get a fire started and both Lauren and Jana pray someone will see and come looking for them. When Nick’s bail is denied Phyllis lets all her angered towards Sharon loose, blaming her for Adam and Nick’s situation. Later, Sarah asks Patty to help her kill Michael and Phyllis in order to get them out of the way to achieve their ultimate goals. Meanwhile, Victor announces that he is guilty of Adam’s murder in front of room full of witnesses.

General Hospital

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.

Days Of Our Lives

Days of our Lives Kicks-Off Possession Storyline Revisted with ‘Doug’ Twist Cliffhanger, Followed by Fall Preview

Did the ‘Devil’ make them do it? Doug Williams  (Bill Hayes) is Satan? In what can only be described as major surprise twist on NBC’s Days of our Lives, for weeks, fans have thought they were about to embark on another dementia or Alzheimer’s storyline on the soaps with another beloved character.

However, Days head writer, Ron Carlivati ,and his writing team came up with a way to make it seem like this may be Doug’s fate only to use the long-running character as the impetus to bring the classic possession storyline back on the air some 25 years later.

It all goes down after Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) calls Marlena (Deidre Hall) to ask him to see Doug, after his MRI and other tests proved inconclusive for dementia, etc, to see if Dr. Evans can assess him.  The phone call to Marlena happened after John (Drake Hogestyn) was discussing the past, since Johnny (Carson Boatman) is ramping up to a shoot a movie on Sami’s life, that will include the time that Sami walked in on John and Marlena having sex, which caused Sami to act out for years and years.

 

However, and this is key, John tells Marlena that moment in time also left her alone and vulnerable to the darkest time in her life – alluding to when she became possessed by the devil – and Marlena was clearly having difficulty admitting that or going down that road of remembrance, when the phone call from Kayla saved her from digging deeper into the past.  Well now, John and Marlena may never have that conversation as she is primed to once again become possessed.

Meanwhile, Johnny is reading Will’s script for the Sami movie, and is shocked to read in it that Marlena was once possessed by the devil, as John takes out a dusty box with his Father John collar, a bible, and a news clipping of Marlena being possessed.  John is feeling that this movie will bring bad things on to all those he loves, especially Doc, and he looks to be right!

Now at her office with Doug, he admits he knows something is wrong.  He acts out and does strange things and does not know why.  Marlena brings up why Doug locked Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) in a freezer by accident. Doug gets adamant saying: “That was no accident. I locked that bitch in there on purpose.”  Marlena is shocked at his word and tone.  Then as Doug laughs, he says, “I’m not Doug.”  Next thing you know, the lowered voice of Satan comes out of Doug’s mouth and he tells Doc, “It’s been over 25 years Marlena. But did you really think I wouldn’t come back for you?” End of episode.  Great cliffhanger!

Now, check out the fall preview released following the airing of Friday’s episode by NBC below, which teases more demonic moments on Days. Then let us know in the comment section, what you thought of the ‘Doug’ twist as the possession storyline begins?

Plus, make sure to cast your vote in ‘Michael’s Poll’ of the week on the revisiting of this classic tale now in 2021 below the preview.

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Jason asks Carly to Marry Him and She Responds “With All My Heart”

The stage is set now for General Hospital’s Jason/Carly/Sonny/Nina story to explode as things heated up between longtime friends and former lovers, Jason (Steve Burton) and Carly (Laura Wright) just as Jax (Ingo Rademacher) is in Nixon Falls pleading with Nina (Cynthia Watros) to come clean and tell “Mike”(Maurice Benard) that he is indeed, Sonny Corinthos.  Here’s what went down on Friday’s episode …

Back in Port Charles, at the demolished former “Jake’s”, Carly and Jason’s old stomping grounds, Carly and Jason share a kiss. Carly says she can’t believe this is happening after letting him know that all of her old romantic feelings for him are starting to come back. Apparently that is true for Jason too, as the ABC daytime drama series finally reaches back into the history of these two characters who were in love, before Carly slept with Sonny.  Back in the present day, Jason asks Carly to marry him, and she responds, “With all my heart.” But now, Carly is starting to feel more excited about what started off as a business arrangement between the two of them to retain the Corinthos family hold over the five families and the territory in Sonny’s absence.  Carly says she wants their wedding day to be about them, and later they can come to Jake’s just by themselves.

In Nixon Falls, Jax (Ingo Rademacher) is trying to get through to Nina, who has admitted her duplicity to him and how she has fallen in love with “Mike”.  When Jax informs her that Carly and Jason are getting married, she thinks that’s great then she and “Mike” can have a future together.  Nina wants Jax to just forget this conversation, and seeing Sonny, and do this for her; after all she went through in losing her child, Nelle, and her relationship with him. Then Jax asks her to think about Donna and Avery and Wiley, his children and grandchild, who don’t know he is alive and will never get to know him. Nina cries that Jax has won, and that she will tell “Mike” the truth in private (but something tells us, she is going to make “Mike” walk-in on Jason and Carly’s nuptials, so that she has a shot of keeping him all to herself by the betrayal he will witness).  Jax says he is not leaving Nixon Falls till she tells Sonny the truth, but she somehow she still got him to leave through her pleading to let her do this alone.  As Nina thinks “Mike” is walking in the front door of the Tan-O, in walks Peter (Wes Ramsey)!

Meanwhile, Jordan (Briana Nicole Henry) is rushed to General Hospital unconscious with Portia (Brook Kerr) not far behind, after being trapped together.  More bad news is revealed when Austin (Roger Howarth) gets the blood results back for Jordan and tells Curtis (Donnell Turner) that Jordan’s levels of carbon monoxide are 58% which is not good for someone with one kidney.  Austin relates that if Jordan’s kidney function doesn’t improve, they’ll have put her on dialysis.  TJ (Tajh Bellow) comes to see his mom, and sits by her bedside in tears.  Later, Curtis breaks down in tears holding Jordan’s hand to come back to him, and she opens her eyes, as Portia walks in on the scene.

Three of the five families plan to take over Port Charles and split the territory after their secret meeting, where they plan to blow up a warehouse while Carly and Jason are distracted and at their wedding; the families also received a message from Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober) while in prison.  Who will stop the “hit”?

So, what do you think of Carly and Sonny getting close? What did you think of the performances of Laura Wright, Steve Burton, Cynthia Watros, and Donnell Turner within this episode? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
