"It's Just Sex" For One Of Sonny's Old Flames!

DahliaSalem.jpg

GENERAL HOSPITAL fans will remember Dahlia Salem as Claire, the federal prosecutor who first tried to send Sonny to jail for murder only to end up (surprise, surprise!) falling for the mobster. But now, Los Angeles-area fans can see the actress dealing with some very different relationship issues in the play It's Just Sex.

"The play is a comedy, which is always good and fun," Salem tells Soaps In Depth. "It's about six friends — all couples — who get together and something goes very askew on the night they meet up." There's no special occasion that draws the pals together. "They just haven't seen each other in a long time. They've been busy with kids and work and they all let loose when they get together while having some drinks and getting a bite."

Salem's character and her husband appear to be a content enough pair — but are they? "We do sound like a happy couple," the actress laughs. "Lisa definitely wears the pants in their relationship, which is fun to play."

Treading the boards again has been adventurous to say the least! "I haven't been on stage in 15 years," Salem says. "I'm really returning to my roots. Theater is where I got my training and where it all started for me. It's exhilarating and you have to be on your toes and be in the moment."

It's Just Sex is set to run at The Secret Rose Theatre in North Hollywood through Sunday, November 2. For more information on the show and to order tickets visit the play's Web site.

Sonny And Carly: Busted!

SonnyCarlyBed.jpg

In Carly's world, love means never having to say, "Did you keep the receipt for this oogly necklace?" If only she had said what she was thinking, her and Franco's day would have gone so much better!

Everything looked to be going Franco's way as he and Nina spied on Carly via his phone app and the nanny cam necklace he gave his bride-to-be. She was alone in Michael's apartment with Sonny, who had his fingers crossed that she was going to tell him she was leaving Franco. But he wasn't even close. "What I wanted to say..." Carly said, speaking slowly and deliberately, "... is that you're a son of a bitch." Not quite what Sonny was hoping for, but the afternoon was young!

Nina grabbed Franco's phone and told him, "Carly passed the test. Stop obsessing." She offered to take him to lunch but he had to leave the phone behind. He whined about being phoneless but ultimately agreed. While they were away, the tone of Carly and Sonny's conversation shifted. Drastically! Sonny poured out his heart to Carly, and it worked. She stepped closer and they kissed. And they did other things, too. Right there on Michael's sofa.

When Franco and Nina returned from lunch, he picked up his phone and turned off the video feed. Unfortunately, Carly spoke, and Franco heard something he didn't want to hear. "I spent the afternoon in my son's apartment having sex with you and my fiancé has no idea." She was wrong.

While Maxie was getting advice from Lulu about her hesitation to meet Nathan for a date that evening, Nathan was filling in Dante. After the Levi debacle, Maxie wasn't ready to trust her heart again, even if it meant losing Nathan. Lulu was not going to side with her BFF on this one. Instead, she encouraged Maxie to go for it. Later, Nathan sat alone at a Metro Court table for what seemed like forever. Certain he was being stood up, he was about to leave when Maxie arrived looking gorgeous.

Sam and Patrick were on their way to Amsterdam, but the flight was the last thing on her mind. She couldn't stop thinking about Danny's pull to the John Doe in ICU. She and Patrick talked about their dislike for each other when they first met, about Jason and, finally, that he received Robin's signed divorce papers. He went on to assure Sam that he got the message loud and clear that they're just friends and not to worry, he wouldn't kiss her again. Bummer.

Meanwhile, Elizabeth sat tirelessly at an unconscious and bandaged John Doe's bedside. Unaware she was talking about Jason, Monica popped in to say "John Doe" had a healthy heart. She and Liz talked about A.J. and, yes, Jason. A nurse came in later and told Liz to take a break. But the minute Liz headed for the door, the monitor beeped and Jason began to move. He was coming to!

Monday on GENERAL HOSPITAL, it's date night for Maxie and Nathan, Franco freaks out and Silas finally learns the surprising truth! Don't forget: 3:00 ET and 2:00 PST/CT on ABC. Be there!

LindstromHerring.jpg

Ever since Frank Valentini and Ron Carlivati took over as GENERAL HOSPITAL's executive producer and headwriter, there have been a slew of classic characters returning to the soap. We've seen folks like Lucy and Kevin return to Port Charles, as well as those believed to be dead like Jason, Helena and Stavros. But while there have been lots of returning favorites, there are still plenty that fans are still desperate to have back on the canvas.

NancyLeeGrahn.jpg

Get ready Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis, GENERAL HOSPITAL) fans — She's got something cookin' that should tickle your funny bones! "We are bringing the funny into daytime TV," she announced to her followers on Twitter. "My new abc.com digital series is called GENERAL HOSPITAL NOW. It's SNL-ish mixed with SOAP. Coming soon in digital near you."

If you've ever attended one of Grahn's fan gatherings, you'll know one of her co-writers, funny man Kaore Bonell, who frequently entertains the crowds. And there are others involved, too. "Hate to name drop but my new ABC sponsored show includes [CHELSEA LATELY's] Sarah Colonna and CONAN O'BRIEN's Jimmy Pardo," Grahn revealed.

As far as other surprises, Grahn tweeted a photo of herself with apparent guest Justin Chambers from GREY'S ANATOMY and noted that her show had wrapped shooting and was in post-production!

Grahn's daughter, Kate, threw in her two cents to promote the project. "[Please] watch my Mom's new show on abc.com in October," she tweeted. "Maybe then she'll sign my lunch program card so I can eat." Yep, she's got Mom's sense of humor!

GENERAL HOSPITAL's Tracy already has her hands full with Fluke, but as we broke last night on Twitter, ABC has confirmed that Hugo Napier is going to be returning to Port Charles as her ex-husband (and Ned's pop), Lord Larry Ashton!

Back in the day, the cad proved he was no prince (heck, he wasn't even really a lord!), and his and Tracy's relationship was anything but a fairytale. At this time, there's no information on when Napier will first air, or how long his stint will be, but we'll let you know as soon as we find out!

How will the fake royal's return impact Ned and Tracy's lives this time? What do you think brings him back to town?

All Roads Lead To Fluke!

TracyDante.jpg

Thirty-seven hundred miles away and Luke Spencer was still the talk of the town... but not in a good way!

Relieved that Lulu was safely home, Tracy threw her arms around her and then almost immediately asked if she had seen Luke. Lulu saw right through Tracy's claim that she and Luke were "better than okay." If that was true, why didn't she know where he was? The more Tracy said, the less Lulu believed. Finally, Tracy admitted the truth -- she hadn't seen Luke since their honeymoon. "It's as if he's become a complete stranger," she mourned.

Dante stepped in, saying he might know what's going on with Luke. "Anna thinks Luke could be the head of the Jerome crime family," he revealed. Tracy was stunned. Then, she was hit with a memory. The night of Nikolas and Britt's engagement party, she saw Julian and Luke together in the Wyndemere stables.

Meanwhile, Patrick and Sam told Alexis they were following a lead about the person who might have put Rafe up to running Patrick's car off the road. They told her their theory about Luke and how Spencer's story fit in. Like Tracy, Alexis remembered something the night of the Wyndemere party. Julian had gotten a text from someone who wanted to meet him right there and then. An hour later, she ran into Tracy looking for Luke, who, like Julian, was nowhere to be found.

Julian was worried sick about Ava, unaware that was hiding out with Morgan at the brownstone. Morgan couldn't wrap his head around the idea that Sonny would kidnap her, drag her off somewhere to have the baby and then kill her. "He can and he will," she shuddered. Although she was determined to get out of town as quickly as possible, she had no plan. Morgan, however, did. "Stay with me! I don't want you to go, Ava!"

Before answering the knock at his door, Julian grabbed a gun. It was a big bruiser of a guy named Kobe, who was sent by Fluke to find Ava. Kobe tried to intimidate Julian into revealing Ava's whereabouts, but Julian really didn't know. He ordered Julian to sweep up after his sister and not only get the goods on Sonny, but also kill Michael! Kobe flashed his brass knuckles like he was going to punch Julian's lights out. Julian, however, was the smarter of the two and got the upper hand!

Jordan marched right past Kobe and into Julian's apartment like she owned the place. Kobe recognized her as the woman who killed Mickey Diamond and, after a rather unpleased exchange of words, he left. Once alone, Julian asked Jordan about Ava. She filled him in on what happened the night before, and he filled her in on what happened with Kobe. "He was here for my sister," Julian began. "Ava was supposed to take out Michael Corinthos and she refused. Now I think he might be on his way there to do it himself."

Monday on GENERAL HOSPITAL, Kiki learns that someone wants her mother dead, Michael's life is in danger, and Olivia has a close encounter with Ned! Don't forget: 3:00 ET and 2:00 PST/CT on ABC. Be there!

Is Victor Really Dead?

ThaaoPenghlisWarren.jpg

We saw Obrecht shoot Victor dead at nearly point-blank range. We saw him fall to the floor, only to later regain consciousness long enough to discuss their relationship and -- lest we forget -- detonate the explosives that destroyed Crichton-Clark. What we didn't see was a body, and you know what that means!
