Will they bring Frank Benson to GH?

I have a feeling that Frank will appear. Maybe in a flashback. He was mentioned a lot in today’s show.

I thought there will be more of the flashback scenes. Nelle told Carly that she saw her when she visited Frank. I wonder if he is dead. I remember when Nelle worked for Carly and had an apartment, she called someone. I don’t remember if they revealed who she called.

I don’t know

Was it Frank Benson that molested Carly when she was younger or was it her adoptive dad? I remember she had a nervous breakdown and had to be in ShadyBrook for a time because of the trauma she suffered at an earlier age.

Oops, I just remembered that Frank Benson was her adoptive father. So was it her biological father that molested her?

After reading about Carly being molested, I have been racking my old memories of GH. I don’t remember that happening, I am not saying it did not, I just don’t remember. When Carly was still called Caroline, her best friend was a girl named Carly. Caroline slept with Carly’s father. There was a car accident and Caroling thought Carly had died. Caroline changed her name to honor her friend, and gave up driving. I don’t remember the timeline, but Caroline learned that Carly had not died. Caroline’s bio dad was a rich man who Bobbie dated. Eventually he turned up in Port Charles. He was a federal prosecutor after Sonny of course. As best as I can remember, he was killed in a shoot out

A lot of things happened to Carly, that we didn’t see in real time. We found out through explanations from the original ( and my favorite Carly, Sarah Brown). Caroline was seduced by Carly’s father, which ended their friendship. Later, Carly was killed in a car accident and Caroline took her name.

When her biological father came to town to prosecute Sonny, Carly eventually found out who he was. The two did become close before he was killed. The actor, Corbin Benson, played her dad. Oh…the irony…lol

Carlye had an ‘affair’ with he best friend’s dad…Which was probably statutory rape. Other than that, I don’t remember a father figure molesting her.

I don’t know the answer for sure, but I thought Carly did not know her bio-dad who was played by Corbin Bernsen (John Durant was his character name). He came to Port Charles in 2005 and Carley figured out he was her father. Bobbie was hooker with heart of gold before becoming a nurse at GH.

I think I may have been incorrect in who molested Carly. I do seem to recall her friend who had changed her name to Reese who later came to PC & slept with Sonny. I am still not sure whether it was that friend’s dad that molested Carly or if it was Frank Benson; I just know she was molested and it caused her trauma late in life. But if I misled anyone with my post I apologize. I’ve been watching GH since I was a child and sometimes it is hard to remember everything, especially now that I have gotten older. I suppose I should just be thankful I have any memory left though. :grinning: given the history of Alzheimer’s in my family.

Don’t be so hard on yourself. Maybe they will clear up that mystery today, or next week, next month, or in five years. You know how long it takes them to end some stories.

I know the real Carly`s father seduced Caroline (Carly), and caused a rift between the two friends. Could that be what you are thinking of?

Possibly so. I just know that somebody molested Carly so it may have been the real Carly’s (later Reese) father. You know, I just realized that poor Carly has had her share of people from her past seeking revenge on her. Reese came back & wound up seducing Sonny (that’s not hard to do) to get back at Carly. Nelle was and still is hellbent on revenge against Carly too. If I were Carly I would always be looking over my shoulder. :grin:
