    For Pete’s Sake, Sonny. Shut Up and Untie Her!

    Jax managed to untie Phyllis and walk out of the Tan-O while “Mike” continued to kneel in front of Nina and profess his love instead of getting her out of the burning building. What the heck? Untie her, run out of the burning building, THEN tell her you love her, for crying out loud!!

    Sorry, couldn’t keep that in!

    I would rather he leave her at this point but you are right that he was being pretty stupid. I think they just wanted to show the audience how much “Mike” and Nina love each other before he potentially gets his memory back. But it just made him look stupid to me.

      Right? Although, not gonna lie, I was cool with either or both of them dying because they took time out of escaping a fire to DTR. Also, I would laugh for ever if Sonny died because he got clobbered by a falling beam after failing to hurry his rescue because he wanted to talk about his effing feelings.

        Cause of Death: Too Stupid To Live!

        He has to live because we didn’t sit through months of that stupid NF story for no payoff. And while it would be pretty funny for Jax to go home and tell everyone Sonny was alive but died again that wouldn’t be as dramatic. So Sonny needs to live and Nina probably does also so that Carly can slap her and Michael and Ava can be disappointed in her because of the kids. Then they can both die or leave or whatever.

      There are so many reasons why I want Sunny back but this has got to be the primary reason: Mike is a world-class idiot. Why on earth would you run into a burning building to have a conversation with someone? Did the amnesia make him stupid?

        Watching Sonny be a bumbling fool trying to save his lady love was so frustrating to watch! I can't stand watching them anyway so his stupidity just made it more unbearable!

          Why did the writers do this? Takes away from what could've been a better, less frustrating, shaking my head scene. But the writers did it, not a character named Sonny.

        The whole thing was so frustrating. First he's standing out the door shouting for Nina to answer him when both women were not that far away and screaming as much as they could while gagged. So after that delay, he wastes time chatting instead of rescuing her. THEN I know it was slo-mo but it sure seemed like he had enough time to get out of the way of that beam after pushing Nina out of the way.

          They should have given long, lingering pledges of love and exchanged a slow, romantic kiss!

          Great fire effects, by the way.

            Or just tip the chair backwards and drag her out, genius! Jeeze…then you stop and look up, and push Nina out of the way of a falling beam, and get knocked it when you could have gotten out too. If that knock on the head brings his memory back, the show has devolved into Gilligan’s Island.

              Exactly! He didn't have to get her awake or untied to get her out.

              Perfect comment! It would indeed be on par with Gilligan’s Island!! I remember watching G.I. and yelling at the TV even when I was a little kid. This storyline continues to be so frustrating…

            By far, one of the dumbest scenes of 2021!

            It was beyond lame! None of it made sense, and it wasn't anything an actual person would do. Plus, instead of pushing her out of the way and standing there, why don't you push and run WITH her out of the way?!?! Lame, lame, lame!!

              My husband was laughing so hard.
              And did you see how easy it was for Jax to get the rope off Phyllis?!

                Maybe Phyllis is just better at tying ropes than Peter is.

                These comments made me laugh! Too bad Phyllis didn't take the shot, she is probably better at that then Peter too.

                My co-worker and I laughed so hard at all this! We agreed it was entertaining but probably not in the way GH writers intended. And I didn't see their feet tied to chair. Why didnt net hey just walk out????!!!

              I disagree. To me, today was classic Sonny as he literally almost talked Nina to death. It’s why he never finishes anyone off when he’s holding them at gun point: too busy talking!

              OP, thank you for this thread. I was hoping someone would start one.

              I’m only surprised Sonny didn’t interrupt his soliloquy long enough to throw some barware around.

                You know, you’re right…Mike was channeling his inner Sonny! He always tried talking them to death, lol!

              LOL, that has got to be the most inept rescue I've ever seen. She could have died twice before he made a move to free her. I'm glad that Jax was all motion.

                I was hoping Peter would come back to check on the fire and just shoot them both while Sonny kept yelling 'don't leave me' and I kept yelling 'until the ropes, you idiot!'.
