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”?

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Steffy’s Not Having Any of Sheila

Friday’s episode of The Bold and the Beautiful saw Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) step up to the plate and not buy whatever Sheila (Kimberlin Brown) was selling, and is horrified what her new hubby, Finn (Tanner Novlan) and his father, Jack (Ted King) pulled behind her back.

Therefore, Steffy put them all on blast and with that came another powerful performance by two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Jacqueline MacInnes Wood.

In story, Steffy decided not to take her business trip.  So, she comes home to find Sheila holding baby Hayes and begins to freak out, and wouldn’t you?  After all, this is evil Sheila we are talking about who has kidnapped babies before!

Jack tries to explain their way out of it, that Sheila promised to see Finn and her grandson Hayes and hold him, and then she would leave town. Throughout all of the scenes, Finn looked like he realized his marriage could have just hit the rocks before it even got started.

Steffy cannot believe that no one is not seeing through Sheila’s epic manipulations.  She wisely points out that, why did Sheila come out of nowhere when he wed a Forrester to finally reveal herself to him as his bio-mom?  Sheila tries to make Steffy understand mother-to-mother why she wanted to see her son and hold her grandson, and Steffy is becoming more unglued, rightly pointing out what Sheila did to her mother and grandmother … she shot them both! Sheila says Steffy has a narrow perspective of how her grandmother treated her.

Next, Steffy just can’t listen to this anymore, or have Sheila in their home and near their child one more second.  Steffy then lays into Sheila, and says she hopes her son doesn’t have Sheila’s “sickness” and tells her she’s getting a restraining order against her and she will never see Finn and Hayes ,or come near her family.

Sheila thinks it’s very cruel of Steffy to threaten her with time in the slammer for wanting to see her son.  Steffy orders Sheila to leave and Jack as well, since he is the one that set this in motion.  Steffy tells Sheila she’s a monster with no feelings!  Since Sheila won’t start to exit, Steffy walks over to her and bitch-slaps her yelling: “Don’t you ever try to take someone I love away from me. Get out!!”

Jack drags Sheila out and Steffy glares and Finn! Ruh-roh!

So, what did you think of the performances of Jacqueline MacInnes Wood and Kimberlin Brown in the major confrontation scenes? What will Sheila do next? What will happen to Finn and Steffy? Share your thoughts in the comment section. But first, check out the final moments of Friday’s Steffy vs. Sheila below!
