GENERAL HOSPITAL: Olivia Dumps Sonny! Has The Mobster Gone Too Far?

On yesterday’s episode of ABC’s General Hospital, Olivia (Lisa LoCicero) confronted Sonny (Maurice Benard)and asked him if he had sex with Ava Jerome (Maura West)!

After trying to deflect the truth, Olivia zeroed in on him, recounting her conversation with Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn), recalling how Morgan (Bryan Craig) came to the Metro Court to tell her something about Sonny, until Sonny walked in and broke up the conversation, and when she was called away from the tense moment by a phone call!

Putting two and two together and showing she is not some dumb cookie from Bensonhurst, Olivia demanded that Sonny fess up to which he did!  He then admitted to having sex with Ava!

Lisa LoCicero in a heartfelt performance recalled how deep her relationship with Sonny goes from their childhood, to her giving birth to their son, Dante and more!  At the end of the scene, Olivia walks-out on Sonny!  Leaving him once again devastated by his own actions!  And this begs the questions, has Sonny Corinthos gone too far?  He has now slept with the enemy and he shot and killed AJ Quartermaine?  Do you think Sonny will continue to go down this dark path! And wait till Michael (Chad Duell) finally finds out!

Wow that was a great episode, I love Olivia I’m so happy that she dumped sonny. Lisa is a terrific actress. Olivia needs someone like Johnny Zacharra to hang out with. Bring back Johnny, they were hot together.

I miss Brandon (Johnny) and that was a nice pairing. RC didn’t seem to like “Steve” (Scott Reeves) so that was a disaster.

It wasn’t just RC. I didn’t care for him either. Liked Scott Reeves, boring character.

I liked Johnny and Olivia, too.

Echo the sentiment on Johnny and Olivia, they were mega hot!

Patrick

is it just me…

does it seem like there are not enough men to equal how big Michelle Stafford can be?

Brandon Barash and Ingo Rademacher would raise the bar and bring even more story for the cast…. Johnny and Jax…. Yum, Yikes, YES !

imagine… this mix back… for Olivia, Nina, Carly, throw Ava in

I really have to wonder…
The Carly and Franco Show… are we stuck with them… and they to each other? we need more mix

Ava has proven she’s so good with Morgan… and if no choice… with Sonny…

but adding Johnny and Jax would set fire

I agree, Olivia and Johnny were great. I also agree with you Patrick about bringing Jax back if Ingo would commit to coming back for a longer extended stay. Jax needs to spread his wings and be paired with someone other then Brenda or Carly for once. Besides, I think the writers have now permanently paired Carly with Franco. She probably won’t be with anyone else unless Roger H. leaves the show. Again though, I agree, bring back Jax and Johnny.

I’ve never liked him at all

Sonny will have a mental breakdown and sent to mental hospital…Alexis will defend him at his trial for the shooting of A.J. but he’ll plead insanity and not do any prison time…Micheal will confront Sonny with a gun and actually pull the trigger but itll be a fake gun…Micheal tells Sonny he is nothing to him and that A.J. is his ‘ONE AND ONLY FATHER’…at least i hope it turns out this way!!!

Michael

Lisa was brilliant in this and it has emmy reel written all over it.

Patrick

ditto, Michael.

I thought so too…. it’s about time… the audience… heck TPTB see her acting chops.

it’s amazing… what a good acting partner… is ALL about… think… the deelish Kelly Sullivan… I miss those cousins.

I hope the writers foray in to… some… Olivia and Duke… romance and passion’ista is written all over this pairing

——-

if Carly and the audience know… Sonny… for reals this time… took someones life out… will he pay? with so much at stake… first, Olivia… possibly Michael…. Carly turning her back… Sean and Duke… leaving…. Morgan leaving…

where CAN Sonny truly go? Can Ava save him? I don’t see that… I see her, going back to Ava… as she loves him… for her? plus the audience truly seems to like her with Morgan… so do I.

I’m glad that Olivia figured out everything on her own and that Sonny confessed to her.I still think the show is going to have Sonny lose everything he cares about and then have him fight to regain it all.

Just kill her off now please, very boring character from day 1

I agree. I didnt find her performance to be that heartfelt. Sonny needs someone else!

Reagan

I like Olivia and Sonny, but there are so many other options for both those characters. GH would NEVER do it, but it would be awesome for Olivia to fall for a woman like GL’s Olivia did. B&B doesn’t even remember they supposedly have a lesbian story line, and instead of bringing on more new characters it would be significant for GH to take an established character and give them an unexpected lesbian story line. That could shake Sonny up too! Losing his woman to another woman!

Patrick
Patrick

The actor, who plays Olviia… certainly can create and move story… she did it with Kelly Sullivan’ Connie

she’s capable with Dante.

she’s showing good acting with her break-up with Sonny.
she would be excellent with Duke.

———

she was a total snooze with Steve….

so… if given the chance and good writing… I like Olivia chances

Sonny and Olivia were not my favorite couple. Because of the onslaught of recurring characters on the show, it is hard to see a relationship develop and have a favorite supercouple. In the 70’s, it was Luke and Laura. The 80’s, Frisco and Felicia. The 90’s, Sonny and Brenda. I know there were others, too. I don’t care for any of the couple pairings right now. I can’t stand Franco; yet, I love Roger Howarth. I don’t find Franco amusing as I did Todd. I guess what I am saying, is that this break-up does not excite or upset me. All Sonny does is preach about how important loyalty is; yet, he betrays Olivia. Hypocrite.

Olivia deserves better than Sonny.
GH seems short on men these days, especially the good and honorable ones. With Nina Clay awake and soon heading for Port Charles the ration of men to women shifts again. Maybe Nina will get over Silas quickly and set her sights on Nicholas Cassadine.

I think Lisa has the potential to be a great actress but unfortunately Olivia has always been a filler character. For much of 2014 she has been placed in scenes to have visions about things and characters that she didn’t even interact with. These seemed misplaced and served really no value. Lisa deserves better. It would be better for all parties to just write off the character of Olivia so Lisa can go to another show like Days or B&B and have more opportunity to be in more of a lead role and GH can write more for the primary characters. I’m afraid on GH she will only serve as a filler.

My favorite line has to be “it didn’t mean anything.” Really? Maybe not to him, but it certainly meant plenty to Olivia, and if he really loved her, he would never want to hurt and humiliate her like that. But then Sonny has only had one true love EVER, and that person is….Sonny!

Lisa knocked it out of the park.

andrew hass

Plus i’m sure if Olivia cheated on Sonny and said it didn’t mean anything Sonny would have a different opinion.Had Sonny just confessed right after that he slept with Ava maybe Olivia could have forgiven him in time but probably not now.Plus Olivia may not be happy when she learns Sonny’s other secrets,

WHOOPIE!! with hopes they end..

I want Sunny with Ava.. they rock!
and will never put me to sleep..

Olivia with Sonny is snoooz land, beyond dull, boring, no fire ..
Like watching grandma and grandpa ..

GO SUNNY & AVA !!!! … BRING IT ON HOME !!!!

This writing regime have really dehumanize and are destroying the character of Sonny.

They did it back in OLTL with the character of Marty, played by fan fave Susan Haskell..She turned out to be a crazed murderer because of a man and after all her misdeeds, she got a happy ending without paying for her crimes.

This character needs to be loyal friend and father like before and still be a bipolar mobster on a verge of a breakdown. But the crap that is being written for him now.

Omar

Having written my previous statement, I have to say that Maurice is giving a great performances with all the crap being written for him now.

Unless you know Maurice Benard personally you don’t know how he feels about the material he’s getting now and he may not think it’s crap.Plus he likes that the show is putting his character through the wringer.

Johnny

Um…when was he ever a loyal friend or father??? And to whom? He kidnapped Michael as a child and basically held him hostage all his life. That does not make him a father. He always chose the mob over Morgan…that’s why he sent Morgan away…for his “safety”. His other son Dante…well… He shot him point blank in the chest. He never even mentions Kristina. Yeah Father of the Year here. And loyal friend? His only “friends” are his enforcers…Jason , Shawn, Duke…and if any of them step out of line…we all know what would happen. So…yeah…I dont know when this magical mystical period was in history that Sonny was a loyal friend or father.

I’ve liked Lisa and her acting ever since her stint on Loving/The City. I know she is not responsible for how her character is being written. According to Olivia/Sonny/Connie history, teenaged Olivia loved Sonny who unknowingly got her pregnant with Dante but pledged his “true love to her cousin Connie ” (which for me a viewer for 45 yrs so hard to swallow what with Brenda having had the true love title all the years before the Falconeries were a gleam in any GH writer’s imagination)-We know that Olivia lied to Dante about his father to protect and deflect him away from the path in life his Father had chosen. I never really liked Olivia’s storyline but Lisa has always given her all no matter what. Olivia’s street smarts were generally in the fore up until Connie died- she should’ve known in her gut she was just a comfortable go to rebound for Sonny because of their historical connection and her total submissive willingness. She stepped whole hog, heart first into Sonny’s life after Connie and made herself available to him in every way. I’ve never gotten that Sonny ever once returned her love ,up to date. OIiviabis yet another character that’s been dumbed down. She should’ve figured out that Sonny cheated with Ava from the first time Morgan bee-lined to tell her so. Instead she had to hear it from Sonny before she actually believed what she finally figured out with Alexis’s help. I hope she learns her lesson and finally realizes one needs to be equally loved and inlove with in return. I’d like to see Olivia open up her own super successful Italian restaurant, meet and fall head over heels inlove with a wonderful, handome Italiano who worships the ground she walks on and see them have a big fat Italian wedding.

Never felt any chemistry between them. And throwing around your hair is not acting. Sorry.

I did like Olivia and Johnny. Until she lied on the stand for the scum who shot her son once, and was about to do it again. Sonny goes to the looney Bin. Fine I might watch some of that I ff all the other garbage from Sonny. But if it looks like he will return and not pay for killing some one in cold blood. I will just shut the show off without DVR ing it. Sonny belongs where anyone else who took a gun and shot someone in cold blood belongs. On death row.I will never buy the he ois mentally ill. If Alexis defends him and gets him off. She needs the room next to his.

Lisa is a power-house actress. When she’s given the material, she always knocks it out of the park. I hope she gets a meaty storyline instead of being sent to the back burner. There’s no need for anymore stunt casting on GH when you have actors of this caliber on the canvas already. She dazzles and pulls at your heart strings all at once; so talented.

Johnny
Johnny

I like the actress but these writers have completely ruined the character with her blind and mind numbingly stupid devotion to Sonny. Another thing, it is becoming overload. How many mob molls does one hour- long show need before they all become redundant? We already have Carly, Alexis, Sam, Ava, Olivia, Jordan, etc etc. It would be nice to have a female character who opposes violent murderers rather than sleeps with them because they are physically attractive and emotionally misunderstood.

Rose

Happy they finally gave Lisa/Olivia something to work with. They had turned her original, feisty character into a shadow of her former self. She could have been hunting down Connie’s killer, for instance, instead of always cooking up another plate of pasta.

I just need Sonny and Olivia back together. They have so much history and chemistry and are, what I believe to be, true love. I keep hoping she’ll get pregnant again and they can have a second chance to be a family, eventually getting married. <3

SOLIVIA for the WIN!!!!

General Hospital’s Cynthia Watros Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

Friday’s episode of General Hospital combined with Tuesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, saw Daytime Emmy-winner, Cynthia Watros, run through the gamut of emotions in her portrayal of the duped Nina Reeves on her wedding day and the aftermath.

READ MORE
GENERAL HOSPITAL: After Learning The Truth About Sasha; Nina Leaves Her Wedding To Valentin ... With Jax

Watros, who made Annie Dutton of Springfield and Guiding Light one of the most memorable soap roles of all-time, showed GH viewers why she is just THAT good!  We have always said that Cynthia can play: drama, romance, torture, cray-cray, heartbreak all rolled-into-one; especially when given the material.

Courtesy/ABC

In story, after part of the secret is out that Sasha (Sofia Matteson) is not really Nina’s bio-daughter – Nina, who has had everything she believed in fall in on her, tries to regain her strength to go back to Wyndemere to face Valentin, and move out of his house.  Once there to get her things, Nina tells Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) that where she goes is no longer his business.

 

Valentin admits that he was looking for her daughter which caused this whole situation, but he also does not admit his part in the Sasha cover-up and that he was the one paying her to portray Nina’s daughter.  He even goes so far to insist that Sasha’s actions were all her own.  Nina still does not believe him.  After she packs her bag, and heads for the door. Valentin tells her that his life is meaningless without her. Nina basically says, “True, that” in so many words … and makes her exit.

Next, with sunglasses on, Nina returns to the workplace at Crimson where she finds Sasha with Michael (Chad Duell) and Lucy (Lynn Herring).  She calls security and tells them all to get out.  Sasha then spins a yarn, much to the chagrin of the audience, knowing that if she implicates Liesl (Kathleen Gati) and Valentin, Nina would be devastated.  So, Sasha says she acted alone and faked being Nina’s daughter, when she was contacted by her attorney, and she was in cahoots with the guy … until he suddenly died!  What!?  Nina looks very suspicious… and throws back that how would Sasha know how to change three DNA test results.  Sasha had an answer for that – she had a friend who works in a lab do it.   Nina still believes she could not have done this alone without Valentin.  Then, in a heartbreaking speech, Watros as Nina shares how she has lost everything: her daughter, her marriage, hope she even had a daughter in the first place, and the list goes on.

 

Courtesy: ABC

And … let’s not forget Tuesday’s nuptials, which we gave our review and recap previously here.  It is there that Nina is first blindsided, and the betrayal, rage, and hurt displayed by Watros was all top-notch.  Here is Nina finally marrying the man she loves, whom she had to allow herself to come to trust all over again so she could be with him, even with all of the warning signs around her.  Not only does she have Lulu (Emme Rylan) spoil her nuptials with exposing the secret of Sasha, but then has to process the deception  which means to her that maybe she never had the child she so desperately wanted and believed she had all along.

The Friday cliffhanger though posed an upcoming intriguing scene.  Ava (Maura West) showed up with a bottle of booze to commiserate with Nina at Crimson (The same woman who Nina literally ripped the baby right out her and kidnapped it in a heinous revenge plot).  Will these two wronged woman team up?  Will there be hell to pay?  That is yet to be seen, but without a doubt, Cynthia Watros is Michael Fairman TV’s ‘Power Performance of the Week’.

James Patrick Stuart Finally Gets His Photo In The Hallways at General Hospital: Watch What Happens!

Where has James Patrick Stuart’s (Valentin Cassadine) photo been all this time from the dressing room area at General Hospital?  Well, looks like we may have the answer to that question!

In a brand new video ditty posted by the folks at GH, Stuart is seen combing the hallways looking for his portrait along with the other major stars of the ABC daytime drama series .. problem is … it’s MIA! Something James takes notice off.

Then, in a time-jump (LOL), Stuart finally gets his big moment when he officially joins the ranks of the cast with his photo being unveiled right next to Maurice Benard’s (Sonny) picture.

The tweet accompanying the video relates: “Contrary to Valentin’s opinion… @japastu is having the best week ever.”   Of course, the tweet refers to Stuart’s character who has just had a disaster-filled wedding to Nina (Cynthia Watros)

Watch what happens below.
