So it finally happened!
Jax (Ingo Rademacher) finally, FINALLY walked out on Carly (Laura Wright) on General Hospital.
And she so got what she deserved.
I mean really, how annoying has she been over the past few weeks….
And self-absorbed…let’s not forget that.
I simply could not stand another conversation about how hurt she is because Jax kissed Kate Howard.
And how about her whole absurd reasoning that Jax kissing Kate was far worse than Carly and Sonny having sex in the back of a limo.
Yeah. Talk about rationalization.
As I was cheering (silently not audibly) as Jax was finally fed up with Carly’s machinations and was parting ways with her – a funny thing happened.
Carly actually made a couple of good points….points that I had put aside because of Carly’s bad behavior of late.
She pointed out Jax’s bad track record for walking away from wives.
It’s not like I really forgot that Jax had left Skye on their wedding night when Brenda showed up.
I had just put it to the back of my mind.
Because, you see, I abhorred Jax for a long, long time after that happened.
He threw Skye away like yesterday’s garbage – for Brenda, who ultimately jilted him.
It’s kind of hard to feel empathy for him thinking back on that.
And in the end, Carly and Jax got what they deserve – another failed marriage.
Carly Corinthos Jacks is selfish, self-absorbed, irritating and just plain annoying.
I don’t see eye-to-eye about much of anything with General Hospital‘s biggest Diva.
But there is one very important thing to her credit.
She is fiercely loyal to her children and she’ll fight for them against all odds.
That has become clearly apparent over the past couple of weeks – when her son, Michael, lies comatose from a bullet to his brain.
And Carly (Laura Wright) is the only one who believes Michael (Dylan Cash) will come out of it – and back to his normal life.
This despite the fact that the doctors say he will remain in a coma.
They say there’s nothing more they can do.
Carly refuses to accept this.
She keeps telling Michael to come back to her.
Everyone else, including husband Jax, BFF Jason and ex-husband Sonny, are resigned to what they believe is the harsh reality.
But not Carly.
And if it were me, I wouldn’t give up hope either.
You can’t, really.
Not if you really love someone.
And not if it’s your child.
There are medical miracles every day.
How about the woman, just last week, who was shot between the eyes with a 44-caliber bullet?
She never lost consiousness and walked away, virtually unscathed with just stitches.
There are documented cases where people have emerged from comas after several years – in one case 19 years.
So, Carly, I’m with you all the way on this one.
