GENERAL HOSPITAL: Julian & Sonny’s Showdown Ends Tragically; Cyrus Reveals His Past; Curtis & Jordan on the Rocks

Courtesy/ABC

Friday’s General Hospital left viewers in a free fall, literally, following the conclusion of the long-awaited final confrontation between arch enemies; Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) and Julian Jerome (William deVry).

Sonny tracks down Julian to the footbridge with gun in tow. He tells Julian the only way for him to get out of this alive, and for all his crimes, is to help him take down Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober) and implicate him as the person behind the bombing a the Floating Rib. Julian says if he talks Cyrus will kill him, anyway.  Sonny says Julian will finally have some redemption if he does the ultimate sacrifice in order to bring down the drug lord.

Next, Julian seems to agree and then collapses, and we are to believe, at that point, that he has died, but when Sonny reaches down to check his pulse, Julian lunges at Sonny! Then a fight ensues and the gun goes off.  We don’t know whether it was Julian or Sonny who was shot.

 

However, it is Sonny who is alive and Julian has been shot dead in the stomach.   Next, Jason (Steve Burton) comes across the two on the footbridge.  As Sonny and Jason see each other, the bridge collapses underneath Sonny and Julian … and they go overboard!  Jason yells “Sonny!”

Back in Port Charles, Curtis (Donnell Turner) is hurt and betrayed by Jordan (Briana Nicole Henry), because she hid the truth from him that Taggert was alive.  She says she is sorry, but she did not want anything to happen to her husband, so she kept him out of the plans and to not let him in on what she was doing to protect Taggert.  Curtis says she never gave him an option and it is not OK about her consistent lies when comes to Taggert and her feud with Cyrus Renault.  There looks to be real trouble in paradise here.

At the long-term care facility in Vermont, Laura (Genie Francis) is an for an earful once Cyrus enters Florence’s room and he and his brother Martin (Michael E. Knight) go at it, reliving old wounds about their father.  Cyrus admits to Laura he figured out she was his half-sister and knew if he fed her bread crumbs she would make it to Vermont and figure it out.

Next, things get heated as we learn Cyrus was the odd man out in his relationship with his father, Gordon Gray.  Martin tells Laura that Cyrus intentionally ran down their father with a car.  Cyrus says it was accident.  in these scenes,  Jeff Kober delivered a top-notch performance revealing not only Cyrus’ inner pain and past, but leaving the audience and Laura still not trusting him and still fearful of him.

This episode seemingly marked the end of William deVry’s run of Julian Jerome who throughout his time in the role gave viewers memorable performances. William showed us the complexities of man caught up in the mob, but who loved his children in his own way, even through countless mistakes, bad decisions, and criminal moves.  And let’s not forget, Julian was one-half of the former fan favorite duo, Julexis with Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis).  Kudos to Will for a job well-done.

So, what did you think of the ending of Friday’s GH?  Will you miss Julian? What do you think will happen next to Sonny? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Kudos to deVry, but Julian stayed long past his expiration date. deVry made the most of what the writers gave him and a lesser actor would have departed the role years ago. Directly responsible for numerous deaths and indirectly for quite a few others, there was no other way out but to (finally) kill off the character. When you think about, sure, Sonny killed AJ, and should be admonished for that. But AJ’s (final) demise started with Ava killing Connie to protect Julian’s identity. Of course, stupid Connie didn’t help by writing “AJ” in her own blood instead of “AVA”… Read more »

Cyrus is still a slimball and always wants to show he has the power but Laura will be one of many to take him down. I still do not believe Julian is dead and I hope he has a part of taking Cyrus down. The Police commissioner has made so many bad decisions in this Cyrus fiasco it makes my head hurt and I do not blame Curtis for being angry with her.

William DeVry : “Julian” I did not expect this MUCH tease sensational delight he’s a good actor, solid imagination whet and senses checked I’m certain Julian was kept around because Message Board LIGHT UP ! Thank YOU for that. when any arch nemesis for Sonny and Carly have run their course… well you can imagine the obvious… Julian caught with every cast member. YES he caught on with all triggers sensored. one of the sexiest … of all cast members… AND that speaks VOLUME.

Happy Holidays GH viewers! Sarcasm meant here. Sorry great actors have to deal with the writer’s stories whose idea of drama keeps getting uglier and uglier over the last few years starting with fluke. Now we have a narcissistic bad guy who thinks it’s okay to make a living addicting people because of daddy issues. And “oh” let’s do it through the hospital. Then there’s Sonny (also step daddy issues), and Jason, who is more loyal to Sonny and Carly than to his own wife and kids. Not sure what they do but are less bad because they don’t deal… Read more »

GH has been firing on all cylinders for weeks now! The acting and writing have been top-notch, especially the scenes between Laura, Cyrus and Martin. Jeff Kober is fantastic in this role, Michael E. Knight is as charming as ever (even with the heavily put-on southern accent), and Genie is Genie, need I say more? She shines no matter what material she’s given. The writing in those scenes was great, and I look forward to seeing more of this new family dynamic. As for Julian, I’m really sad with what the writers have done to him this year. His downfall… Read more »

Hi Jimmy
I don’t think we’ll ever see Julian again since Sam identified his body but what I thought was pretty rotten was her telling her brother that their father got exactly what he deserved. He was not a good father but he loved them in the only way he was capable of. I guess if Julian and Alexis didn’t act as she thought they should then they weren’t worthy of her love. God, what a hypocrite!

WOW! WOW! WOW! Amazing Julian-transformation. Bravi, makeup artists—and, bravo William!! A true thespian!
Sonny needs to rest—such a put on. Plus, the entire deal with Jason, the arresting cop and Diane was such a forced scene—-nonsensical words from a nonsensical attorney. Really?! A farce!! Just sayin’.

Hi Celia 🙂
Good to see you are alive well and sassy 🙂
They actually did, it!!! Julian was actually killed off..
How he would be brought back would now need miracle writing.
Wonder if he’ll be cremated– burying people is gross.
You take care- be safe !!!
MERRY CHRISTMAS !!!!

I can’t bear to lose Sonny or Julian. Carly,Ava,Alexis,Tracy,Monica,Epiphany and Diane are irreplaceable. At the same time I am so sick and tired of the Michael,Chase,Sasha and Willow story. Anna has become tiresome with her obsession about Peter. Jordan has become a real pain in the butt. She needs to leave Port Charles as soon as she can Her character is soooo repetitive and redundant. My biggest complaint is the writers. So many things that happen are simply not realistic. A shoot-out in an unoccupied bus terminal? Teenagers hacking into hospital records and no one knows? None of the PCPD… Read more »

Truth be- soaps stories are ”simply not realistic.”

Top to bottom, GH has been great since coming out of the initial Covid shutdown. Connecting a current storyline with Laura’s past and making her related to Cyrus and Martin, BRILLIANT! Three top notch actors chewing up good dialog. A positive treat in a not so positive year!

Hi Timmm —
goes to show that being on lock-down with time
on hand you can create awesome stories
out of boredom and isolation..
And– it gave time to recharge../reboot oneself.
Looks like covid jump-started the brains of the writers.

Hi! Iam having a hard time remembering exactly which women you are speaking of. Just for hoots, would you name a few?

Right??!! TPTB expect the viewer to give a blind eye and a deaf esr to Sonny’s criminal activities, machinations and male superiority. I’ve only been watching for six years, but his sexist intonation has reared its ugly head many a time..
The hypocrisy by both the show’s elites and the character is quite ironic..

Man, TPTB really wanted to make a point to/about deVry, didn’t they? It’s a shame they took their gripes with the actor to the screen and made him run around like a rat for weeks before jumping off a parapet, being shot, then shot again, then falling off a bridge, and then dragged around the set around in a body bag. DeVry is a damn good actor & I’m sad to see him go. The whole thing reminded me of a story told by the character of Moira on Schitt’s Creek about her soap persona being killed 7 different ways… Read more »

Hi !! Celia 🙂
Sonny hasn’t committed crimes, he has other people do what’s needed..
And- he’s never coldblooded killed anyone, that’s Jason..
Actually, Sonny is quite clean..
Carly & Sonny have become boring eeehhhh
Their relationship has outlived its time.
But it seems that there isn’t anyone else for the characters.
So- if they break up for the 10000 time they will remarry for the 10000 time.
I still have’t figured out the reason for them, at their age, to have a baby/Donna- makes no sense, nope..

Hey, Susie Q—- Great “seeing” you. Hope you had a joyful Christmas—no large family gathering? LOL Donna is a menopause baby. Realistically, it does happen. My grandmother gave birth to my father at forty-seven years of age. We call my dad an “oops” baby. However, I don’t know what point the writers were trying to make when they decided to give Carly and Sonny a baby. Was it to show that Sonny is as virile as ever and Carly still hot to trot?. I suppose TPTB are running out of bright ideas to keep this couple relevant. BTW—-Sonny is definitely… Read more »

Thought Julian would survive. he never found out he has another baby. why did they kill him off, still a lot of stories for him? Can’t they have his death be a plot to help him escape for a while?

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Carly Admits To Sonny She Was Falling Back In Love with Jason

On Friday’s episode of General Hospital, Carly (Laura Wright) and Sonny (Maurice Benard) finally had the “talk”.  You know, the one about what Sonny really walked in on the night he “returned from the dead” on Carly and Jason’s (Steve Burton) wedding night?  Yeah, that one.

Sonny has already had a conversation with Jason, where Jason admitted he was starting to fall again for Carly, even though they were originally getting married to show a united front for the five families.

Now coming to confront Carly, Sonny is at first greeted by her with “Mike’s” cowboy hat, where she says the man he was in Nixon Falls is a mystery to her. Sonny tells her he spoke with Jason and so Carly is compelled to admit that she and Jason would have slept together on their wedding night, if Sonny hadn’t shown up alive and in the bedroom!

Sonny’s clearly upset about his best friend and his wife getting so close and rekindling their old feelings. Carly tells Sonny that, at first, Jason and she were just going through with the wedding for show, but later, they decided to make it a real marriage, and were falling in love.

When Sonny poses the question to Carly, if she has any residual feelings for Jason, she says they have gone back to being best friends, and how much she loves Sonny.  Carly points out that Nina (Cynthia Watros) did this to them – she kept them apart for nine months – and so much has happened that it’s been difficult for them to be together as it was in the past because of it.

In the end, despite what Nina had perpetrated on them, Carly and Sonny come to an agreement that they need to rebuild their relationship.  But the cowboy hat looms as we fade to black.

Clearly, the Jason and Carly relationship and almost consummating it on their wedding night, is not sitting well with Sonny; plus Sonny seems to continue to not really tear into Nina for her deception as much as someone would if he didn’t also have feelings for her.

So, what do you hope happens next? Do you want Sonny and Carly to work things out? Do you hope Sonny sleeps with Nina? If he does, and Jason goes back to Britt (now that they are going on another adventure together to locate Liesl) is Carly ultimately the odd woman out?  Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.
