GENERAL HOSPITAL: Maurice Benard Delivers Emotional Turn As Sonny Confesses At Morgan's Funeral

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

On Monday’s episode of General Hospital, it was the airing of a very highly-anticipated scene as Sonny (Maurice Benard), with gun in tow, addresses family and friends in front of his son Morgan’s casket during the young man’s funeral service.

Sonny, who has left Carly (Laura Wright) a letter (which she never got thanks to the machinations of Nelle!) and who said some ominous goodbyes to his children, looks to be ready to take the blame for his son’s death and take his own life in the process.  The mobster wants to right the wrong, but first he wants to make sure everyone knows how sorry he is, especially Carly, who is overcome by Sonny’s words and actions.

Next thing you know when Jason (Billy Miller) tries to talk Sonny down, he says he has to do this.  And with that, Sonny disarms his gun and tells his son Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) to handcuff and arrest him for Morgan’s death.  At this point, Sonny believes when he called off the hit meant for Julian (William deVry), which ultimately in a series of circumstances took Morgan’s life instead, that the hit was still carried out.  But Jason knows better!

Later at the PCPD, Sonny is in the interrogation room when Jason slips in and tells him that Diane (Carolyn Hennesy) is on her way.  Sonny needs to lawyer-up since he has the beginnings of evidence that show that Sonny is not responsible for the hit.  Dante and Jordan (Vinessa Antoine) are outside the room in the police station, where Jordan is trying to get Dante to step away from the case against his father.

Carly is now faced with losing her husband for a prison sentence, following the death of her son.  She is devastated, but Jax (Ingo Rademacher) tells her Josslyn, Michael (Chad Duell) and Avery need her now more than ever.  Meanwhile, Bobbie (Jackie Zeman) is on to Nelle, who is up to something, but what is her end game? Ava (Maura West) popped up at the church to say her goodbyes to Morgan when everyone else was gone, and Kiki and Dillon had a very touching scene portrayed on the money from Hayley Erin and Robert Palmer Watkins after the funeral when they met up.

However, it was Maurice Benard who in the first ten minutes of the episode illustrated Sonny’s sorrow and his guilt that his son is dead, but that he is still alive.  Several moments were played with quiet intensity, and when Sonny cried, we cried.  Watching Sonny break down in tears was even too much for his family as Michael and Carly watched in sadness.  Again, beautifully played by Benard, who should consider this and other performances this year for his Emmy reel.

So, what did you think of the conclusion of Morgan’s funeral?  Maurice Benard’s performance?  Who is truly responsible for Morgan’s death? What is up with Nelle? Share your thoughts to these questions in the comment section below!

Julian is responsible…he put the bomb in his own car to frame Sonny but it was suppose to go off with no one in the car!!!

If that is the case, then the question will be how does Julian get himself out of this one? It is always interesting to see what they throw in to get Julian and Ava off the hook. Those birds should have been jailed and executed many times over but yet they still come up smelling like a rose.

Maurice did an amazing performance, he had me tears the entire scene in the church. I could literally feel Sonny’s heartbreaking as he said he wished he could trade places with Morgan. I know there are a lot of Sonny haters out there, and at times I dislike the things Sonny does, but I wouldn’t wish that on any parent. The thought of your child dieing because of you has to be a pain like no other, and Maurice showed that yesterday. His guilt over his sons death was simply overwhelming. If Maurice isn’t at least nominated next year for… Read more »

Unfortunately, I did not get to see aforementioned scene , thanks to Obama’s long winded interruption of our soaps. I read the re-cap, but not the same. Iam sure Maurice Bernard did a bang up job, no pun intended, as only he can do. I know I would have been crying right along with him.

Well if that was the plan it wasn’t well executed, no pun intended, by the writers since Julian knew his driver would be sitting in it. Unless the driver was disposable to Julian. I also think it would be a dumb move by Julian to hire Curtis; he’s pretty good at his job. And…Julian still wants to win back Alexis…

Maybe Paul ordered the hit from jail; he was out to get Sonny. Maybe a Zaccharia hit… Maybe something to do with Nell. I’m goin’ with a Nell connection….

Or perhaps Carlos’s brother?

Rebecca1
Guest

Ooh! That’s a good suggestion too! In doing so, he would have gotten revenge on Julian AND Sonny! I still think it would be interesting if it was Carlos’s twin that had been killed…and Carlos is really alive but has to “play dead.”

Celia
Guest

I agree, Rebecca. I never thought Julian fid it; too obvious.
I do think your idea that Joe is really Carlos has a lot of merit. I think he came back with the intention of getting his family back, never imagining Sabrina would die in the interim. He does have his son.
If what you propose is true, would it mean that it was Joe who actually died by Julian’s hand?

Rebeccaq
Guest
Rebeccaq

Hi CeeCee…yes, that was my theory a while ago. (barely remember it now…but Joe came to Port Charles pretending to be Carlos…then was shot by Julian who thought he was Carlos.) The only hole I see is the composure Carlos maintained after hearing about Sabrina’s death. Still, workable theory, especially for a soap.

If MB would stop playing every scene with his eye on the Emmy reel, he just might get that Emmy nod. If TPTB would stop catering to MB’s desire to win that Emmy, GH would improve. When you stop trying too hard in arenas of acting and writing, a natural flow is achieved. MB seems to be trying way too hard and the end result is he leaves viewers like me cold and underwhelmed. The Mourning Morgan show is dragging the show down and like a bad song you hear on the PA system of the grocery store, it’s seemingly… Read more »

The best part of the episode was Ava and Scotty who had me laughing out loud..Scott is such a smarmy hoot. And don’t get me started on Jason just walking into the PC precinct..handing a faceless cop some money..telling him to get lost and walking into the interrogation room.

This Suooo person should be able to express his or herself about a soap opera without being insulted for doing so. I agree with him or her. Besides, Sonny is way too big of a narcissist to kill himself. He managed to make Morgan’s funeral all about him. “Enough about me! What do you think about me!” he seemed to be saying while rubbing his temples and while trying to cry. And that scene in which Jax and Sonny share that awkward hug, and Jax discovers that Sonny is holding? Well, that was hilarious, albeit unintentionally. I fully expected Jax… Read more »

I find GH very difficult to take anymore and I rarely watch it anymore. It’s just way too dark and depressing day after day, week after week, on and on and on. Enough already! Frank Valentini and those inept female writers need to go. Daytime soaps should ostensibly provide a fun escape from the horrors of the real world. And in case you haven’t been paying attention, there have been a ton of disturbing real life news stories recently, even just in recent days following the election with violent protests everywhere you look. Whatever happened to the high doses of… Read more »

Christine I couldn’t agree with you more. This show is a shell of its former self. I started watching again when they had the 50th anniversary show nurses ball. I wanted to see if they mentioned anyone from the glory days, and in the process got hooked on the Patrick and Sabrina storyline. And then when Billy Miller came on I kept watching because I missed him on the Young and the Restless. And then I just stopped ecause the stoies were to long and drawn out. To much death and depression as of late. To dark. Not like the… Read more »

Sorry, I respect your opinion, but I just don’t get the whole “show is too dark” criticism. Soaps are about drama and human emotion. They’re called daytime drama for a reason. You watch a soap opera and then get mad at it for being a soap opera. Claire Labine just passed away last week, and she was head writer during one of the true GH glory periods. Her main stories were about a young man dying of AIDS, a little girl dying in a school bus crash and her heart being given to her cousin, a middle aged wife and… Read more »

Maurice shined baby! He is not a poster boy for most beloved BUT if you are fair you got to tip your hat, he did very well. The ONE problem I have with Sonny confessing is he still has other kids that he is raising and or need their dad. Dont throw yourself away for one kid. Sonny TRIED to call off the hit. And I think it was off until Julian set Sonny up. Those Jeromes are dirtier than the Corinthos’s!

Violet Lemm
Guest
Violet Lemm

I agree, especially poor little Avery with no one but the housekeeper to care for her .Carly was only thinking of her own pain leaving the child without a mother there for comfort. I don’t know what Nell’s agenda is, but she truly seems to care for all the Corinthos kids.
Speaking of which, what’s up with Dante? He seems to have no love or compassion for his father. Is he so perfect, done no wrong, etc? We know better, right LuLu?

AJ
Guest

True Dante has always been high and mighty and that’s always annoyed me about him. He acts like he can do no wrong so I wasn’t surprised by his response to Morgan’s death ( when in doubt blame Sonny). What I was really disappointed with is Michael’s attitude, I hate the way they writers have changed him. Michael use to at least give Sonny the benefit of being innocent. It just doesn’t seem like it’s that way anymore, that’s sad because they use to be more connected like Sonny and Jason are. Jason always knows when Sonny is innocent and… Read more »

Avery is probably better off with the invisible housekeeper.

Say what you will about Ava, she is not the parent who was actually convicted of killing an innocent man and beat the rap. I still don’t know how a court would give any form of custody to a parent with Sonny’s history.

Timmm
Guest

If Nelle hits on Michael and kisses him, she is NOT Carly’s daughter. [I hope not!]

Dante is a stick in the mud with a hypocritical mind. Crime and murder are more serious than an affair BUT it is hurtful to Lulu and WRONG!

Celia
Guest
Celia

Nell’s agenda is clear. ( if I am wrong, I will apologize, LOL). She is ingratiating herself for her own benefit. There are many reasons for her skulking behavior. One of the reasons is probably one of entitlement.
Joss is alive because of Nell’s kidney. She wants payback—compensation for the ‘indisposed’ life she has had to live; such as depending on meds for her every breath she takes for the rest of her life.

Hey, Timmmy, I wouldn’t put it past TPTB to go there with Michael and Nell, even if they end up bring siblings. Dante? What a joke. He shouldn’t even be involved in his father’s case….which leads me to ask: why is Sonny not wearing prison garb? Then, there’s Griffin. Yeah, here I go again……. I cannot believe these writers!!

No institution or religion made up of man/women is free from them from the parishes to the Vatican. As far as Jesus, he wasn’t Catholic or any denomination, and probably unlike Canon Law, I was taught he was forgiving…”Forgive them, they know not what they do.” And I’m sure he could find someone like Griffin in his fold who has tried to be a healer, whether as a… Read more »

@Rose. Sorry to disagree with you, Rose, but I need not to be patronized, with all due respect. I have enough education on my plate in both Theology, and genersl Academics /sciences to know Jesus was of no religious denomination. That is not my point. The point is that when a priest takes his vows ( strictly the Roman Catholic faith), he moulds himself in the image of Christ; pure, honest, with integrity. A priest takes vows, when these vows are broken, he cannot continue being a priest, in the true sense of the word. And, I am very familiar… Read more »

Rose makes a REALLY good point. I truly think the Catholic Church could obliterate many of the problems facing it if they stopped making the priests pledge the vow of chastity. They should be allowed to be married the way ministers of other faiths are. It’s time for the Catholic Church to step up to modern times which includes embracing reproductive rights, embracing same sex love/marriage and allowing women to become priests. Pope Frances has been a welcoming voice and is making strides which might help propel the Catholic Church out of Medieval times. I am not saying this vow… Read more »

I am not sure why Rose was compel d to open this ‘can of worms’, as she calls it. It seems to me that she actually stirred those worms, not mine.

It was one of Maurice Benard’s finest performances. When he broke down in front of Carly and Michael I could feel Sonnys emotion and pain. Their reaction was also very real. The look Carly gave Sonny as he left the church tore at my heart. How can they ever come back from this. I hope the writers will make it happen. I hope Carly will open her heart again. As for Sonny, he bared his soul and I think he will always take some of the blame for the death of his son just because of his violent lifestyle. He… Read more »

OH dear God, I cannot be the only one who thinks Maurice was just phoning it in and mugging it up for the sake of an Emmy reel.
He is dragging the show down and needs to take a long vacation. Hell, I will pay for his ship fare.
Sonny just needs to do like a sheep herder and get the flock out of here.

phoning it in, I don’t know what performance you watched but it is very rare that actors leave me in tears.

Love that last sentence there.
You are so right, Addison. Why are the writers stretching Sonny’s scenes, situation, whatever one wants to call it?
I am also tired of his somnambulistic ‘limbo’; on both the threshhold of half dream and half reality.
This torture, displayed by Sonny, does not the heart move. It did at first, but now, it is passe and I find myself in deep ennui. He just does not generate patois, at this point. After all is said and done, he is still SONNY!

I think Paul is responsible. He blew the case on Julian in court because Ava was blackmailing him with knowing he was the hospital killer. Now that the information is out and he’s in prison, what perfect way to both get back at Ava, and right the wrong of destroying the case against Julian and letting him walk free, than to plant a bomb to kill him? By the time Paul was captured, he realized that his actions crossed the line and he hurt so many people. This could have been his final act to try and correct some of… Read more »

Yes, Maurice was at his finest during these scenes. And of course we have the predictable outcome of Sonny not being directly responsible. During the funeral and so far this week, budget cuts are showing on air. First, no day-players as seat fillers plus the absence of Lucas, Valerie and TJ from the funeral. A throwaway line from Bobbie mentioning Lucas & Valerie working might have helped. I gather Ryan C is no longer on the show and Brytni S is now recurring. Other noticeable cost saving measures — the one table restaurant (Scott/Ava/Kiki/Dillon), lack of extras and especially the… Read more »

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Port Charles Learns a Bomb Caused the Explosion as Lives are Forever Changed

This week’s General Hospital has reminded us all of why we love daytime drama and why GH possesses some of the finest performers in the genre.

Wednesday’s episode featured several emotionally-charged and gut-wrenching moments as loved ones find out the fate of several people in crisis, or have to deliver terrible news in the wake of the bomb explosion at the Floating Rib, which already had taken the lives of Dev (Ashton Arbab) and Dustin (Mark Lawson).

Courtesy/ABC

As we begin, Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) has a passed-out Lulu (Emme Rylan) in his arms and brings her to Portia (Brook Kerr), who sends her for tests.  And in true soap opera fashion, just as Lulu was presumably going to tell Dane she still loved him and wanted him back (following Dustin’s death) … he never heard what she had to say.

 

Laura (Genie Francis) fills in Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) that Dev did not make it, and then Liz decides to tell her son, Cameron (William Lipton) the heartbreaking news while he is recovering from his injuries.  When she does, Cam is overcome and devastated as his mother holds him in her arms.  Meanwhile, Carly (Laura Wright) is filling-in Trina (Sydney Mikayla) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) about Dev’s untimely death.

Later, with Laura present, Portia tells Lulu’s loved ones that she has a cerebral contusion, and that there is a a traumatic brain injury which has caused swelling on the brain.  Laura and Dante look on devastated.  Portia then says they have already rushed Lulu to urgent surgery.

Julian (William deVry) is with Ava (Maura West) at Wyndemere.  She is attempting to hide him there, while he figures out his next step after planting the bomb.  However, Jason (Steve Burton) shows up looking for Julian now that Sonny found out that a bomb caused the explosion that ravaged the Floating Rib.  From that point on calls are made to ensure Sonny’s family is protected as a mob war is about to go down. Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Jason believe all roads lead back to Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober).

Courtesy/ABC

Jason leaves Wyndemere before spotting Julian; leaving a distraught Ava to come down hard on her brother … he has two choices…  leave Port Charles, which she will help him do, or stay, and if he stays, she will not help him or be a part of his life.  While they are discussing his next move, they learn Lulu is now in critical condition from the bomb.  Ava tells Julian in no uncertain terms that everything he has done has come with a cost.  Jason shows up at the Corinthos home where Sam (Kelly Monaco), who is not happy about any of this, finds out along with Carl,y that Jason believes he was the target at the Floating Rib.

Courtesy/ABC

As Liz is struggling to hold it together with Franco (Roger Howath) having brain surgery, she speaks with Scott (Kin Shriner), who did not know of his son’s tumor.  She shares with Franco’s dad that Franco is worried he will wake up a very different person.  Liz is told Franco is out of surgery, and is in tears over his hospital bed.  She prays he will be alright and Franco wakes up!

Portia tells Nikolas (Marcus Coloma), Laura, and Dante that Lulu is out of surgery but in a coma, which Kevin (Jon Lindstrom) points out is normal in these situations. Dante goes to sit by Lulu’s bedside and begs her to wake up.

Courtesy/ABC

Then, in devastating news for Laura, Lucas (Matt Trudeau) gives her the real 411 on Lulu.  He tells Laura that Lulu’s brain started swelling the minute she hit her head at the Floating Rib, and that her injury got worse the longer she was not checked out.  Laura achingly realizes Lulu was so worried about Dustin that she never was immediately checked out for head trauma.  Lucas lets Laura know that Lulu’s recovery could take a very long time, if she recovers at all.

Heart-tugging performances throughout the stellar episode were given by: Dominic Zamprogna, Genie Francis, William Lipton, Rebecca Herbst, and Maura West in very intense and dramatic scenes.

So, what have you thought of this week’s episodes of GH? The fate of Lulu? The performances from yesterday’s airshow? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Ashton Arbab Says Farewell To General Hospital: “It Was Such An Honor To Have Worked Alongside Of Such Talented Actors”

Yesterday, viewers of General Hospitals witnessed that as a result of the bomb explosion at the Floating Rib; it meant the end of the road for a couple of characters.  One of those was Dev, and thus ends Ashton Arbab’s over two-year run in the role.

In key scenes, Dev dies in the ambulance ride to the hospital and thanks Sonny (Maurice Benard) for making him a part of the family and tells Sonny to tell Josslyn (Eden McCoy) that he is sorry.  Will Sonny recall what Dev said and pass that on to Joss? Will anyone figure out Dev’s duplicity in keeping Joss and Cameron (William Burton) apart? Stay tuned.

Meanwhile, Ashton took to Twitter on Tuesday and shared these words of praise and ‘thank you’ for his time on the ABC daytime drama series.

 

Arbab expressed: “I am forever grateful to Producer Frank Valentini and Mark Teschner (casting director, GH) for this amazing opportunity. It was such an honor to have worked along side of such talented actors and I’m beyond blessed for your friendship. Most of all thank you General Hospital fans.”

So, what did you think of Dev being killed-off? Will you miss Ashton? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Mark Lawson Shares Heartfelt Sentiments As He Exits General Hospital

General Hospital fans knew Monday’s episode would bring with it who might have survived the explosion at the Floating Rib, and who might still be in peril or who did not make out.

This afternoon as viewers were learning the fate of several characters including Dustin, who was proposing to Lulu (Emme Rylan) as the bomb went off, his portrayer, Mark Lawson took to his Instagram to announce his exit from the series.

Mark expressed: “Actors know this moment is bittersweet.  Job well done, but leaving a set full of like-minded, inspired people. Playing Dustin was a joy. Every day on set was a gift, as were: Emme Rylan, Kirsten Storms, Brian Lane, Dominic Zamprogna, Lisa LoCicero, Maurice Benard, Bradford Anderson (And others that don’t have social media!) Thank you General Hospital. Honored to be part of television history not only on this show, but to be among the first actors back to work in town post-Covid. The set always felt safe, and I was proud to be in front of the camera in such a strange time  Thank you for everything.  Stay soapy.”

Check out Mark’s post below.

So, are you sad that Dustin is no longer on the canvas in Port Charles? Will you miss Mark in the role? Comment below.
