They do need some new staff at GH. I would have hoped for maybe Serena Baldwin or someone with ties to the GH cast.

I am sure they will find out what the antidote is just in the nick of time…

So… how long will she last before she’s killed off like Lisa and Maggie?

Ugh…Maggie. Worst, most worthless character in a long time.

oh there have been a few worthless characters – how about Helen’s “daughter” the white lady?

Can’t really comment on the new actress at all because I haven’t seen her work…I am hoping she has an agenda. I don’t think it takes a genius to deterrmine which doctor she will be paired with. But as a Scrubs fan it is probably obvious what my POV is so I won’t bother to restate it.

We have more than enough newbes on GH already. I feel the new writers have put our favs on the back burner to highlight the oltl cast and a few others. The Lante fan have really been disregarded and now Mcbain is the cop in charge and Dante is just gone?

I don’t think so about writers putting our favs on the back burner to hightlight the oltl cast & others…I see my favs everyday….Each one get’s their turn in the spotlight……Dante & Mcbain are working together…Dante isn’t being diregarded because of John….They are working together as a team….Helping each other out…..They are both great cops & good at what they do….

He’s not gone. I wish he was, but he’s still there. And Lulu is still harping every chance she gets.

Jason is going, which is a great start. Now is Sonny would only drown in a vat of his own tanning oil and the Falconeri’s, mother and son donated themselves to medical research things might start looking up even more than they are already.

We’ve got Anna Devane back, Duke Lavery, Robin returning, maybe Alan Quartermaine, and more to come of the GREAT old days, and some good new characters from OLTL. Time to jettison the dead wood and bring in a few well thought out newbies, fine with me.

Christy
Christy

this doesn’t mean this gal is staying long… remember how they announced the guy who played Delores’ husband… who was on what a few days?

Dante isn’t gone. McBain used to be with the FBI so he just adds some extra experience to the force when they need some extra help – kinda like Anna Devane does (when she’s around), having the experience of the WSB on her resume.

I rather like Dante/Jason/Jax/McBain all working together – even Sonny/McBain working on Joe Skully Jr stuff.

Richard

Why not a young medical student called Serena Baldwin, played by Jenn Lilly?

Totally agree Richard. They need to find a way to bring Jen Lilly back!

i would like to see the character of serena baldwin but i think it is a bit too soon for jenn lilly to come back as a different character…………

TS

LOL . .I agree!!!

I wonder the same thing Michael. But we need some newer late 20-30’s folks.

Is there another doctor left besides Patrick now that Matt is enjoying the facilities of the local prison and Ewen may be joining him or going to join Heather in the loony bin? Well, there’s Monica, but don’t think that would be likely, even if she was seen more than once every few months.

kk

It better not be steve, because himand olivia are great together.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Christine

I adore the name Sabrina, but I am afraid she is there to mix it up with Patrick. I miss Robin so much. 🙁

If they had to add new GH staff, I hope she is somehow already tied to existing characters. I like the idea of Serena Baldwin, as other posters mentioned.

Not excited, but I’ll reserve judgement and see how it plays out. I’m loving GH right now!

Beth
Beth

Why a new character? Why not a character like the aforementioned Serena or what about Liz’s sister, Sarah Webber? She’s already a doctor, has a natural sibling rivalry with Liz, and the hospital could use another staff member.

Theresa

For the writers: just plain ‘why’!

Christy

obvious. people are getting sick, even the current hospital staff, they need extra help – she may only be there for a short time. who knows.

They keep adding characters that have no ties to Port Charles history or the core families. That drives me nuts…why not cast Scott’s daughter Serena baldwin? Why not cast Audrey Hardy’s biracial grandson Tommy Hardy Jr. ( Lord knows the show could use more color). Why not cast Rick Webber Jr, his son with Jenny blake? Why not cast someone else from the Ward Family. Why not give Epiphany another son or a daughter who wants to study Nursing?
Why not add a younger Quartermaine cousin?
Just like the Guza/Phelps regime the only history Cartini cares about is Corinthos history. The core families that founded the show-Hardys, Webbers, Quartermaines, Baldwins, theyve all been forgotten.
For long time viewers that really sucks.

PS please leave Jenn Lilly wherever she has gone. She was horrible!

Christy
Christy

“why not cast Scott’s daughter Serena baldwin?” cuz this gal’s going to be working with all those sick people at the hospital… if I saw a familiar family name coming to work at the hospital during a crisis, I’d think either they or someone else in that family is going to die and have this other by their side.

Serena can come back when it’s safe to be PC! :-))

Karen

As long as she isn’t paired up with Scott Reeves (Steve) I’m okay. I wish Steve would have left with Heather. Sorry but he needs to go.

Not for Patrick! I hope not bring Robin back

come on…natalie….bring natalie in.

They should have brought in some more oltl cast. That would boost ratins. Oh wait abc wants to kill it now keep it on the air.

ENOUGH WITH THE NEWBIES!!!

I swear I don’t recognize anyone on this show anymore! 3/4 of the cast has been on for 3 years or less. That’s HUGE!!!! I don’t know what I’m watching anymore!!! So many new faces I can’t keep track anymore! ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!!! This is getting RIDICULOUS!

/rant over.

Hmmm…well since there are only 5 doctors at GH- 2 women (who will doubtfully be paired with her), Ewen (who has gone off the deep end), Steve (who seems to have his hands full with the woman he’s currently with) and Patrick (newly widowed, hasn’t had decent airtime in months and currently has no story whatsoever)- gee, I wonder who it could be….? /sarcasm.

As a Scrubs fan, it was bound to happen they were going to pair Patrick up with someone, and I’m betting that will be this chick’s purpose. Fine. If she must, they can try. I get to sit back, not watch, and wait until Robin makes her way back to PC and reunites with Patrick…whether this chick is in his orbit or not. No doubt in my mind and not even a smidgen concerned. 😀

A med student whose storyline is with a doctor. The only doctors left are Patrick and Steven Webber. Matt is in prison, Keenan is leaving and Monica is “gone”. So what’s the big deal?

Alley

I want Blair!

FAB!

kathleen johnson

well it will proably be patrick but i hope not unless she is part of jerry and dr ewens plan

Christine
Christine

You know, kathleen, I was thinking the same thing after a thing I read regarding Robin. It said something to the effect that is there a reason why Robin would purposely stay away from Patrick and Emma? Makes me think this new girl might be a plant to keep Patrick busy and maybe to make Robin think he has moved on. Like we haven’t seen this scenario before, making it EVEN longer before they are reunited. 🙁

Rodney

How do we know she won’t be tied to someone already on the canvas? Some fans really love to knock something down without even seeing it play out first.

SZima

Unless this character DOES have ties to the show, I hate that they’re bringing on someone new.

Or, maybe they’re going to kill off a few people with this virus and we just haven’t heard about it.

Anyway, unless they get rid of a few of the superfluous characters, there just isn’t room for any more. That’s why it seems like so many characters are back-burnered…they are trying to tell too many stories involving too many characters.

Mark

Could be another daughter of Sonny’s.

Scott

Stop adding new characters. Bring back the veterans and exited cast of “General Hospital” that we’ve wanted for years!

Jamie

I totally agree with you Scott.

Hummm I hope it is not for Patrick but that would make sense it can not be Steve, are there any female docs left??

BOnnie
BOnnie

she looks sweet, I hope her character is not a bad on like Maggie or Lisa. Humm maybe we will get a male med student.

Rusty

It’s probably going to be another crazy person. Seems like the last few times they’ve brought on new medical staff, they’ve been nuts, like Ewen and Lisa. Hopefully this is not just another recycled storyline.

karen

Yawn!

Sabrina and Spinelli hook up and make geeky but beautiful music… perhaps they’ll get adventurous and find Robin for Patrick and Emma.

Laura

Patrick and Robin were boring…Patrick needs a new exciting storyline.

Heather

I love Sabrina, she gives you compassion for the underdog and I wish they would allow character Sabrina to really get back at Britt. Sabrina brings out the evil in Britt. When are they going to show the public the real Sabrina, what she really looks like. She is a very pretty young lady. Then maybe Dr. Drake will fall in love with her. You are a talented actress and I am rooting for Sabrina.

Whitney

I think Sabrina is the missing Quartermaine … I would love to see where things go for her and Patrick but what about Robin?

GENERAL HOSPITAL Flips The Switch In Sonny-Centric Episode Featuring Standout Performances

On Monday, in honor of Maurice Benard’s 25th anniversary as Sonny Corinthos on ABC’s General Hospital, the daytime drama took a look at what life would have been like if Sonny had not fallen in to a life of crime and in the mob. The standalone episode featured the return of Dominic Zamprogna as Sonny’s eldest son, Dante.

But in the twist on ‘soap-reality’, Dante was now the ascending mobster in Port Charles, and Sonny was a sergeant in the police department in Brooklyn married to Olivia Falconeri (Lisa LoCicero).  It all beings when Sonny remembers being 18-years-old and that fatal day when he shot Vincent Marino.  The young Sonny is played by Maurice’s real-life son.   Sonny then dreams of what would have happened to him if he never pulled that trigger.

Sonny is now a by-the-book cop, who visits his son Dante along with Olivia.  When they get there, Dante is now married to Sam (Kelly Monaco), who is his trophy wife.  Dante is working for the Jerome family – enter Julian (William deVry) and Ava (Maura WestO – and we quickly learn that “Jason Smith” is the hit man who works for them.  And, wouldn’t you know?  Seems like Ava and Jason have a “thing” going on … sealed with a kiss.

Now disturbed by his son’s life of crime, Sonny goes to the PCPD to talk to the police commissioner, who is now Anna Devane (Finola Hughes).  In the story, Anna is very inward, depressed, and more.  We find out that her daughter, Robin died of complications from AIDS in the 90’s, in which Anna has never recovered from.   We also learn at the PCPD that Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) is the current District Attorney.

Carly (Laura Wright) enters the scene, and she is still married to A. J. Quartermaine.  Sonny takes a liking to her and vice-versa.  We later learn that Jordan (Briana Nicole Henry) is back working for the DEA and Dante has gone undercover to bring down the Jeromes; so the entire territory is under his control.

Dante and Sam have a major falling out, as he is excited by the power he will have once he rids the Jeromes out of his business.  Sam has had it. She doesn’t want to dress like this, be his trophy wife, or have this kind of life. When Dante walks out, an upset Sam is alone with Jason, and the two connect.

In the conclusion of the episode, Dante shoots Jason on the pier, a scene which Sonny walks in on.  Sonny and his son struggle for the gun, and once again Dante is shot, just like in the original version of the story years ago, but with the twist of the struggle.  Olivia comes running onto the pier and sees Dante shot, and yells at Sonny the signature line, “You shot your own son!”

CourtesyABC

At the end of the dream, Sony goes back to the mark in time where he decides whether or not to pull the trigger on Marino with Mike (Max Gail) and him looking on at the young version of himself.  In the end, Sonny still pulls the trigger.

The episode featured stand-out performances by: Dominic Zamprogna (how great was it to see him again, and to see him play Dante’s dark side), Maurice Benard (who illustrated the other side of Sonny, more reserved, and delivered a heartbreaking speech as Sonny to Dante about his life being abused, and the choices he made), Kelly Monaco (who showed a woman unhappy with the outward shell she had created and been a part of), and Finola Hughes,who gave us a different look  at what life would have been like for Anna had Robin been taken from her years ago.  Additionally, it was nice to see the entire cast deliver in support of making this episode work in the ‘flip the switch’ sequence of events.

So, what did you think of the Sonny-centric episode? Who was your favorite in it?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
