Hating the way this return is unfolding. As everyone else said almost every beat is played wrong.

On the other hand, I will watch the Nina/Carly showdown because this is the kind of scene LW was born to play and in the scene-ender, Nina didn't look like she was going to be as remorseful to Carly as she had been to the others. Which is what I want to see. 
Can't tell you how much Joss' "So because my mom wasn't nice enough to her..." line irritated the hell out of me and basically put me squarely in Nina's camp. Quite the feat.

I will say say that after Sonny's cemetary scene with Nina, it is pretty clear to me they are not letting that thread go because they are playing Sonny a lot softer towards her almost immediately, whereas I expected at least a few weeks/months of rage and revenge-swearing on his part.
I am half expecting him to try and discourage Michael from using Wiley to punish Nina - and that creating tensions with Michael and Carly. We will see. I have been so wrong about this entire story and they have messed it up so much that I am not going to overthink it too much.

Perhaps a bit more time was needed before this part came out.  Nina should be the last thing either discussed minutes in after a 9 month separation.  The whole reveal is just bizarre.  Really bizarre.  

Maxie runs over to the Corinthos house, a place she's never been, to give information on a friend no one ask for?  Weird af!  

We still have the Smike loves Nina part but my expectations are really low.  Like super low!  

Well, Sonny has met Carly and I think he knows she would go nuts over this.  And Carly is clearly not going to agree with you about that lol.  I would be frustrated too if I had to hear it from someone else, even though Sonny may have decent reasons to keep it a secret.

I thought maybe I missed a reason why Maxie would be the one who felt Carly needed this info immediately or that they were better friends than I remembered.  The Maxie I know wouldn't give a crap about this.  She has her own problems and she would consider those more important.

"Can't tell you how much Joss' "So because my mom wasn't nice enough to her..." line irritated the hell out of me and basically put me squarely in Nina's camp. Quite the feat".

This is the first time I have enjoyed Joss since Eden took over the role.  Joss was absolutely correct.  Carly not being nice to Nina is no excuse for what she did, especially after Michael, Sonny's kid, allowed Nina to see Wiley against Carly's desires.

I also thought it was random that Maxie, who isn't even involved in this story, was the one to tell Carly. Why not Jax? Did he get lost in Nixon Falls? 

Maybe Ingo was getting vaxxed that day 

It would have been better if Jax told her, but I wonder if Carly would have just taken her wrath out on him instead because he didn't tell her immediately.  And Jax just thought it wasn't worth it to hear her screeching more than he has to.

I'd much rather the old fashion reveals.  Carly finding out publicly or overhearing Sonny and Nina.  Folks knocking on her front door bringing fruit baskets and "tea"?  This is some Leave It To Beaver mess here.

For sure.  So if Sonny didn't catch Jason/Carly initially Carly overhears Sonny/Nina and falls into bed with Jason.   I keep thinking (hoping) there is a greater, soapy plan here but I am not seeing it.

The only thing I can think of is that Sonny and Carly disagree on what to do with Nina. Maybe Sonny wants her to continue seeing Wiley, but Carly doesn't. Ultimately, it'll push Carly in Jason's direction for real. Though I'm still hoping for Jason/Britt at some point

But that's pretty boring.  Fighting over one's grandkid zzzzzzzzzz...........

I do think we will get Jason/Britt some point too, but this whole story has just shifted weirdly so many times who knows?  Maybe they will be like Liz and Jason and hook up a million years after the initial hints of romance. 

Or maybe Carly/Jason will have a one night stand, they both go back to their respective partners, and it comes out explosively later.

I think Sonny is going to defend Nina until they found out Sonny was in wuv.

It's something at least. Something that puts them all at odd with one another, and could possibly drag Michael/Willow into it as well. They're boring now, even though taking Chase out of their orbit was the right thing to do (if he wasn't going to become a villain of course)

Idk maybe we'll get some good story in the next few months. Judging from how previous storylines were shot to hell, it seems like Frank only interferes in the summer  But October to May is usually pretty good.

LOL right? It's so bad. What happened to Jax? (I mean, in the grand scheme of things I don't care LOL but he makes more sense)

I'm not holding my breath.

 

Potential remains but as Chit said, this Leave it to Beaver drama doesn't cut it

Yeah, not that I'm dying to see Jax on my screen, but it would've made a lot more sense story-wise. Jax was actually part of the story and he's connected to both Nina and Carly. Maxie is totally irrelevant. Might as well have the mailman tell Carly the news about Nina.

And I know that Sonny has technically only been back for like one day, but where the heck is my girl Phyllis? She needs to come to Port Charles. She has nothing left in Nixon Falls. No Lenny, no Tan-O, no friends now that "Mike" and Nina are gone. I mean I know she has that nursing job that she never seems to be at, lol, but she can get a job at GH. Make it happen writers.

    • I'm pretty sure Chris was present when Kay Chancellor kicked the Fosters out of her house, after Jill, thinking she'd inherited the house from Phillip, moved the whole whip-stitch tribe to Foothill Road.  Wasn't there a big scene where Kay waltzed in and tossed all of them out.    Kay Chancellor and Lorie Brooks had a couple of scenes in 1979.  It was a complicated storyline.  Kay was "dead", having been "killed" in a fire at the sanitarium.  In reality, Kay had survived of course and was staying in the Foster home with Liz.  For several weeks, Liz was the only person who knew Kay was still alive; they had Kay's funeral and everything.  Jill was married to Stuart Brooks and was trying to bilk a divorce settlement from him.  Stuart was anxious to get rid of Jill and was willing to pay a premium to get her butt out of his house.  Brock had revealed to Lorie that, in his opinion, Jill was planning to extort a settlement from Stuart and then run away with Derek Thurston, profiting financially first from Stuart and then secondly from Derek.  Not knowing Derek Thurston, Lorie wasn't sure if this account was valid or not, but she HATED Jill and wanted to be sure Jill got $0 settlement from Mr. Brooks.  Liz babbled to Kay that Stuart was in the process of writing Jill a check for $150,000 to get rid of her .  Kay Chancellor, knowing how Lorie felt about Jill, called Lorie on the phone and said, "Lorie, this is Kay Chancellor.  No, I'm not dead.  Everyone just THINKS I am.  Now, lissssen to me, Lorie. Take the check that your father has written to Jill and rip it to shreds.  Tell Jill to just GO.  She's already made plans to swindle a fortune from my husband.  But I'll stop that as well, and she will get nothing.  Ab-so-lute-ly nothing."  Lorie snatched the check away from Jill and ripped it up.  Jill left Stuart's house with nothing at all, and then Kay herself interrupted Jill's next foray -- a wedding to Derek.  Kay and Lorie were pleased that they'd stymied both of Jill's get-rich-quick schemes.  I don't recall Jennifer Brooks ever interacting with Kay.  It would've been superfluous, as they were the same prototype character -- the vain, wealthy, society matron who depended upon male companionship for validation of their fading beauty.  I expect Bill Bell thought it would be wise to keep them separated, as Kay was simply a more flamboyant version of Jennifer.    
    • She was always fun when she appeared on Larry King Live dishing about old Hollywood. She was a good friend of Dame Joan Collins, who posted this tribute. 96 is quite a fabulous run.  
    • Hardly a week goes by without a network or streamer announcing some sort of reboot or re-imagining of an old TV series. So before the well runs dry I'm challenging our talented posters to submit their own. You can be as creative as you like, adhering to the original concept or using it as a starting point. If you have casting ideas, please include. Should be fun. To get things started Barnaby Jones (original 1973-80)Barnaby Jones is  a formerly retired investigator who with widowed daughter-in-law, run a private detective firm in LA. Jeddediah Jones, a much younger cousin Barnaby eventually joined the firm. Reboot Barnaby Jones is a 50 something silver fox who likes to use 'traditional' detective methods to solve crimes. Luckily his beautiful Asian  American daughter in law Betty Lin Jones is a tech wiz and can often step in to assist Barnaby. Also in the cast Barnaby's nephew Jed a 20 something Latin male who sparks some sexual tension with Betty. Harte to Harte  Original Hart to Hart  79-84 Self-made millionaire Jonathan and freelance writer Jennifer are the Harts - a globetrotting married couple with a talent for finding mysteries wherever they go.  Reboot Jonathan Harte is a young black tech billionaire who together with his influencer wife Gennifer play amateur detectives. Get the idea? Looking forward to your concepts.
