Tucker gives Jill the DNA results and Jill learns that Tucker truly is Kay’s son. Wrecked, Jill becomes determined to make Kay understand what happened between her and Tucker. Meanwhile, Kay comes slamming back into the house and announces to Brock and Nikki that Jill is sleeping with Tucker. Later, Kay starts to believe that Jill was working with Tucker and that Kay never truly meant anything to Jill. Victor asks Nick and Adam for their opinions on how to handle Tucker McCall and Nick isn’t thrilled when Victor decides to head Adam’s advice. Alone, Nick tells Phyllis that he needs to start beating Adam at his own game. Later, Victor meets with Adam and asks him if he can finally put Newman first and earn Victor’s trust once and for all. Brock takes his turn to confront Tucker and finally hits the nail on the head when he tells Tucker the real reason he came to Genoa City was to find Kay., Jill arrives home and demands to talk to Kay but Nikki blocks her way refusing to let her see Kay. However, Kay tells Nikki to let her in. Jill tries to explain how she came to be involved with Tucker and the mistake it turned out to be but Kay realizes that this is just who she is and nothing Kay gives her, including her love, would ever be enough. Later, Cane arrives in time to hear Kay telling Jill to get out of the house. Away from Kay, Cane realizes that Jill is involved with Tucker in more than just a business sense. Meanwhile, Brock brings Tucker to see Kay. Later, Jill makes it clear that she intends to work with Tucker now that he controls Chancellor and Cane can’t believe what he is hearing. Meanwhile, Kay refuses to reach out to Tucker and as he leaves she finally breaks down from years of guilt. Victor brings Nick and Adam together and asks them to call a truce but Adam blows up and tells Nick and Victor exactly what he thinks of them and exactly how he feels about Sharon. Victor makes it clear to Adam that he will never earn his trust. Adam quits Newman. Adam brings Victor his letter of resignation and Victor tells him he is making a mistake. Meanwhile, Adam goes to Tucker and asks him for a job.  Noah gets an email from Eden about her time in Paris and she mentions that her aunt wasn’t the one who contacted her. Noah starts to ponder that and wonders who would want to send her away. Meanwhile, Daisy milks Lauren’s sympathies as she tells her how much she hates living in the dorms and her dreaded roommate. Lauren offers to let Daisy stay in Eden’s room while in Eden is in Paris and Daisy is eternally “grateful.” Later, Lauren’s headache continues to get worse and her mood swings heighten. Daisy notices that Lauren is about to have a drink of whiskey and points it out to her, which surprises Lauren, who wonders what is going on with her. Noah asks Sharon to let him go to Paris to be with Eden because he needs a break from all the family drama. Meanwhile, Adam gives Tucker some confidential files from Newman as a way of showing where his loyalties lay. Tucker is impressed and offers him a job. Later, Victor is not happy when Tucker informs him that he knows about Castle Properties, an acquisition Newman was interested in acquiring and that he also hired Adam. Meanwhile, Adam tells Sharon that he got a job with Tucker and Sharon is not thrilled. Later, Victor goes to Billy and offers to give him the story of his career. As Tucker is having a drink, he looks at the drive Adam gave him and says he doesn’t trust the Newman’s for a second. Chance overhears the end of Chloe and Billy’s conversation and realizes that Chloe is going back to work at Restless Style, an idea he doesn’t agree with.  Noah runs into Daisy at the coffeehouse and learns that Daisy is now living in Eden’s old room, which is unsettling to him. While going through Eden’s desk, Lauren finds a binder of Eden’s with clippings of Lauren’s life and incidents with Sheila and a receipt from a pet store and Lauren starts to think that Eden bought the rat. Adam tells Sharon that he is through trying to earn Victor’s respect but Sharon isn’t completely convinced. Meanwhile, Victor tells Billy that he can have a candid interview with him as long as the interview is all about Adam. Cane is furious when Kay tells him that Jill is sleeping with Tucker and she lied to Cane about it. Later, Victor, Jack and Kay all meet to start planning their take down of Tucker but Kay raises the question of just how long Jack and Victor’s truce can truly last.

Michael is caught off guard when Daisy comes out of Eden’s room in her pajamas. Later, Michael and Lauren get into an argument over Lauren asking Daisy to stay with them without talking to Michael first. Lauren shows Michael the scrapbook she found in Eden’s room and tells him that she believes Eden was behind the rat incident but Michael isn’t so sure. At the coffeehouse, Jana encourages Kevin to focus on what is happening at Chancellor Industries and to put Ryder out of his mind. Adam stops by Newman to drop off a gift to his assistant and Victor makes it clear to him that he’d better be careful what he does next. Meanwhile, Sharon offers to take care of Faith for the day so that Ashley and Jack can work at Jabot. Later, Sharon sits and talks to Faith, blissfully unaware that she is bonding with her own daughter. As Adam tells Ashley about his fight with Victor and decision to quit Newman and subsequent job with Tucker, Sharon arrives home and both she and Ashley are stunned when Adam demands to know what Sharon was doing with Faith. After learning that Adam took a job with Tucker, Ashley starts to wonder how much she can trust Adam after all. Lauren finds a sleeping bag in the backroom at Fenmore’s and Daisy lies saying it is hers. She tells Lauren a sob story about school and Lauren refuses to turn her back on Daisy, regardless of what Michael says. Meanwhile, Jana goes to ask a homeless man to leave the coffeehouse and is stopped short when she realizes that it is Ryder. Adam suggests that he and Sharon move off the ranch but Sharon won’t hear of it. Sharon wonders why Adam is so adamant about getting her off of the ranch. Everyone is shocked when Tucker calls a meeting of all the department heads to tell them that they are all fired. Tucker immediately assures him that he is kidding but that he intends to sell Jabot. Ashley and Victor agree that Abby needs them to show her a united front. Meanwhile, at the bookstore, Abby spikes her coffee as she runs into Ryder and offers him a drink and nearly does a spit-take.

Chloe tells Jack and Emily that there is an emergency at the church where they planned their wedding and they need to move it to Sacred Heart, where Jack married Patty. Later, while Chloe and Emily are dealing with the wedding crisis, Jack confronts Jill about her involvement with Tucker. The two exchange some pretty harsh words and Jill doesn’t reveal to Jack Tucker’s intention to sell Jabot. Meanwhile, Cane can’t help reminding Tucker just how lucky he is that Kay is his mother but Tucker’s only concern is business. Kay matter-of-factly asks Tucker what he plans for Chancellor Industries and he tells her that he is going to sell all of it off, piece by piece. Tucker states that it is purely business and Kay calls him out on his lie. Katherine finally admits to Tucker why she gave him up all those years ago and strikes a chord with him but he refuses to acknowledge it and continues to state that breaking up Chancellor is purely a business decision. Kay, however, knows better and hits the nail on the head when she calls Tucker out on his “tantrum.” Kay finds Jack and tells him that Tucker plans to sell Jabot and that needs to make Tucker an offer, quickly. Meanwhile, as Ashley and Victor are discussing Abby, Jack calls Ashley to tell her that Jabot is in play again. Ashley moves off to talk to Jack and Victor hears her over the baby monitor and realizes that Tucker plans to sell Jabot. Later, Victor calls Jill and tries to persuade her to convince Tucker not to sell to Jack. Jill returns to her meeting with Tucker and Cane and tries to convince Tucker not to sell Jabot but instead to keep it as a part of McCall Unlimited. Although intrigued, Tucker turns her down. Ryder tries to take Abby’s alcohol from her as Noah approaches and misreads the situation. Ryder lets Noah take over and Abby finally lets down her guard with him. As Noah tries to sober Abby up, he calls Victor to tell him that he found Abby is bringing her home soon. Later, Ashley and Victor try to talk to Abby, who is extremely emotional.

Sharon brings home a copy of the newest issue of Restless Style to show Adam and Ashley Victor’s interview on Adam. Phyllis, meanwhile, reads the article to Nick and is surprised by how far Victor went to smear Adam’s name. Victor arrives and both Nick and Phyllis wonder if Billy misquoted him but Victor tells them that he stands by every word. Later, Noah and Abby read Victor’s article and start to realize the type of man Victor is and the family they are a part of and truly wish they could both get away. Meanwhile, Adam reads the portion of the article about his mother and Adam is truly gut-punched. Jack confronts Billy about the new issue of the magazine and demands to know what is going on. Billy tells Jack that Victor came to him as he remembers the interview. Jack wonders what is going on, because something about Victor’s motives doesn’t sit right with him. Mac tells J.T. that she has another ultrasound today as Cane and Lily arrive and Lily can barely contain her excitement. At the doctors, Lily, Cane and Mac are all affected when they hear the babies’ heartbeats for the first time. Meanwhile, J.T. runs into Nick at the coffeehouse and asks about Victoria. Nick tells him that things in Dubai are a mess right now and that she will be home as soon as she can. Victor is hit when he overhears Noah talking to Nick about going to France for a semester and wishing he could take Abby with him. Meanwhile, Abby asks Ashley about Victor’s article and Ashley is at a loss as to how to explain Victor’s intentions. Later, Phyllis is furious when she learns that Victor is trying to force Ashley off the ranch and tells Ashley that she will stay on the ranch only if Ashley does. At the ranch, Noah asks Victor how he truly feels about Adam, Victor assures him that although there are elements at play here that Noah can’t understand, Victor does love his family. Sharon continues to support Adam in his pain and Adam blurts out that he doesn’t deserve her. Meanwhile, as Jack, Ashley and Phyllis are having lunch, Nick and Victor arrive at the G.C.A.C. Billy joins his siblings and shocks Ashley and Phyllis when he tells them that Victor brought the Adam interview to him. Later, Ashley confronts Victor at the G.C.A.C. as Abby and Noah arrive to see it. Victor tells her that he isn’t going to fight her for the ranch, leaving her speechless. Moments later, Sharon and Adam arrive and Adam immediately attacks his father in public, telling him that he went too far. Lily comes crashing down off her cloud of bliss when she learns that her friend from chemo, Harry, passed away. Meanwhile, J.T. and Mac bond as they play with Reed and J.T. admits how bad things are between him and Victoria. Later, J.T. and Mac share a moment when Mac admits to her that she wishes she was the one in love and about to have a family with the man she loves. Meanwhile, Cane tries to get Lily to talk about Harry but Lily just wants to focus on the babies and the future.

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.
