GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sam Shoots Sonny Then Kicks Him To The Curb!

Courtesy/ABC

On Tuesday’s General Hospital, Sam (and it’s nice to see “Badass Sam” return albeit psychotic version) finally had her showdown with Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard).

Believing that Sonny is going to harm her children and Jason (Billy Miller) by having his former favorite hit man be part of his crime syndicate and getting pulled back into that life (although Sonny is saying he is getting out of “Mobsville”) she goes after Sonny with her gun.

On the docks, she finds Sonny with her gun pointed on him, tears in her eyes, telling him he is not going to destroy her family.  Sonny tries to calm her down and gets his hands on her wrists with the gun. However, the gun goes off and Sonny is hit in the leg.  Now believing she did not intend to do it, he is positioned inside a deep hole that is usually covered at the docks. Sam turns on him and then kicks him all the way down the hole!  She leaves him there, tosses the gun in the dumpster, rubs off her fingerprints, and takes off.

Later Sam shows up at the Morgans, saying she did what she did to protect them to Jason.  Next thing you know … she passes out! Medical alert!
Meanwhile we cut back to Sonny alone, shot at the docks in the deep hole.  Bets are that  the covering will go over it by some dock-worker, or nemesis of Sonny’s and we are off to no one knowing where Mr. Corinthos is.  Fans already know Michael Sutton (Stone) is due for a return in August. Will he appear as an hallucination to Sonny, as he did when Robin (Kimberly McCullough) was left for dead in a well years ago?

Kudos to Kelly Monaco in these scenes, but also to another member of the cast, Carolyn Hennesy (Diane) for in scenes with Carly (Laura Wright), she is emotionally torn-up upon learning that the love of her life Max (Derk Cheetwood) is now the interim head of Sonny’s organization, until Sonny finds a permantent replacement for him.  Hennesy difiintely has one of her Emmy scenes for next year!

So where you jumping for joy when Sam kicked Sonny to the curb and shot him? Where you upset she did it?  What do you think will happen next? What did you think of Ms. Monaco and Ms. Hennesy’s performances? Comment below.

If a masked Ava strolling under the darkness of night were to fall down that Port Charles version of “The Rabbit Hole” would Sonny and she reprise their tawdry tango for two ala The Crypt Tryst? Between his delusional hallucinations and her Phantom of the Opera-like disfigurement, it would make for a truly surreal sight…a macabre horizontal mambo between two loathsome creatures.

She did well. Kelly’s “seizure” was surprisingly well portrayed. I believed it. I noticed minute details….the eyes —the stffness of limbs and fingers—the shaking. Kudos!!!! As far as shooting Sonny? Well, now….we knew this was coming, and as everyone else, I questioned a few posts ago, this guy has nine lives and then some. How many times can one be riddled with bullets and survive? He actually invoked God!!!!! Does God listen to murderers? God is good. God forgives. But, but, but…. Until the last minute Sonny ‘retained’ Jason’s services to beat a confession out of Valentin. Is that ok… Read more »

If I am Donna Beck- without the client list- what soaptown do you hail from? I would venture New York and venture further to Rae Woodard. Adored her. Despite the money, furs, power, prestige and political clout, the glittering jewels always seemed beyond her grasp. Oh, she certainly grasped Frank Ryan’s jewels, but never gained a firm grip on the task at hand.She was cunning and ruthless and beautiful and really only wanted to be loved. And the mob-always menacing, but never to the point of things with Sonny. I forget what became of Rae and Seneca and Rae’s daughter,… Read more »

Does anyone remember that Sam & Sonny had an affair & Sam became pregnant & gave birth to Sonny’s daughter who died shortly after birth? Sonny was very involved/concerned-Sam & Jason bonded at that time-I can’t rem. the details but Sam & Sonny have always had a bond, not to mention that Sonny is the father of one of Sam’s sisters! I LOVE SONNY.

Was I upset when Sonny was shot, the article asks. Big no…we all knew it was coming. And we know he’ll be rescued. Who knows, maybe the PCPD will actually be the ones to rescue him. It seems the citizens of PC solve most of the crimes and perform most of the rescues. Particularly Jason, but he’s tied up right now…

Anyone who harms Sonny gets an A Plus in my book! If only one of these bullets would really take and finish him off!!! But no, he will be rescued and will continue to blow sunshine and unicorns all over Port Charles.

Even a lengthy coma would have sufficed….Then again, that would have meant lots of Carly lovingly emoting at Sonny’s bedside as she willed him back to the land of the living. Oh, that makes me sick just thinking of it!!!!

Because you long for Sonny. Or Julian. You are bored with it all and long to walk on the wild side and both Carly and Alexis are in your way. I feel your angst and then some. I strongly feel that together, you and I could reach those dazzling heights and I will simply not take no for an answer. I will, certainly abide by any restraining order- but in that case, lunch is off.

Sonny has always been a friend, cancer/tumor or not, Sam should not have gone after Sonny.

So, are you “Lee” as played by “Phyllis,” or “Phyllis,” as portrayed by Lee??? Some clarification would be much appreciated even though you are an utter delight regardless!…Oh, by the way, would you per chance be acquainted with the lovely Peggy and her sister who graced these threads a year ago spring??? They were quite marvelous additions to the website! Alas, their stay here was all too brief and once they departed, they failed to make any return engagements. If you do know them, please send them my best!

Let me be clear at the start – General Hospital is MY soap. I have watched it for decades. It currently has the best cast in daytime. I want it to succeed and flourish for decades to come. Having said that, I must voice my opinion that the show is presently terrible; nearly unwatchable. This is mainly due to the writing. Individual scenes can be fine and the dialogue is often very good but the long term stories the show is telling are dire and directionless. God bless the actors for selling this sludge. The lack of continuity and follow… Read more »

No offense to Maurice Bernard, but I’m sick to death of the Sonny show. I wish the writers would stop making Sonny out to be some wonderful man and fantastic father. It really undermines the integrity of the characters. It was incredibly satisfying to see Michael wake up and turn on him, but then they eventually did a 180 and reunited the two. Even Monica waivers depending on the season, and Sonny virtually destroyed her entire family. Those hatreds should be deep and permanent. And let’s not forget that he shot Dante straight in the chest, yet Dante and Olivia… Read more »

Sonny shot? What? What a surprising twist! Not. Sonny could be a human sprinkler as many times he has taken bullets or been near death. I just cannot care anymore. Maybe a solid story about the rise of senseless gun violence in our country could be done. Hospitals certainly are treating such all the time, even General!

Iakovos…I am so with you on the senseless gun violence in the US. And am very frustrated by groups and “responsible” gun owners who look the other way while the shootings continue every day. And the courts that seem to think it’s okay to be a gun culture which allows multiple guns per person, and not just one “regular” small handgun per. And allowing concealed carry from churches to schools and it seems everywhere else. But major fire power. The excuses, and reasons to own them is so self serving. I’m sure even the founders would have adapted to current… Read more »

Sam finally had a good reason to wear those boots! There’s probably many viewers who wished they were in her boots right then.

And yes, Diane was a highlight as well as the charming Scorpio family reunion.

In my dreams, Sonny succumbs to his gun shot wound. There’s a be-all, end-all funeral. The following week, Maurice Bernard walks into the MetroCourt lobby to check in. When the clerk asks his name, MB replies “Nico Kelly”.

Now how many times has Sonny been shot? Oh, I guess no one is counting at this point–LOL!

One last musing, however. After being shot countless times, is there any dramatic effect?
Oh, well–just musing!

any impact this latest “stunt” by Shelley and Frank to give the audience reason to care

was lost that quick… no sooner had Sonny come too

the very next scene, @GH… Sam has another vision… or hallucination.. with Sonny asking her… what are you going to do now that i’m dead ?

well he’s not.. and the impact of him dwelling in the pit is now lame. till Carly goes all banshee

perhaps Griffin will hold a vigil replete with memorializing the stud

He could have disarmed Sam at least 4 times, sigh..
One thing about GH and guns know one knows how to take another down, no one.
Sam should be dead :).. Sonny needs to up his game.

Now I’m mad at my Sonny. Because he couldn’t disarm and kill Sam I have to either suffer her or FF ..
Sonny will be just fine (hopefully not paralyzed, again lol)

Glad Sam has something to do but you’d think someone with Sonny’s fortune could get a cell phone that works on the docks or in a warehouse, wherever he is. Of course, my favorite part was later, when Jason just picked her up like a feather and carried her to GH. But Billy’s delts have always made me weak in the knees.

OK – my appreciation for Sam JUST JUMPED .

Sonny to Sam : “You didn’t mean to do this”

Laura Wright : Carly. this is taken from another thread by @Jovin. ie: Carly “…Random question…is Carly the stupidest woman ever? A couple months ago Sonny was calling her a worthless whore. Now she is happily back canoodling with him. ” I watched the 7/25 ep with Carly and Diane. Carly just sat their deadpanning Diane in the scene.. and said next to nothing… naturally.. one must just let go and let the uber talent of Carolyn Hennesy fly. yet still… Carly just did nothing .. did not even acknowledge how she felt. she also looked uninteresting even with Jason.… Read more »

What I meant to say is, Sonny need to face new challenges for me to keep tuning in-since he is usually the center of everything. So why not the center of the earth? Why not Dr. O falls into the pit and hit her head and falls into a coma and Sonny cares for her, talks to her, sings Edelweiss to her so beautifully and with his shirt off and pausing to stroke Liesel’s brow with a cool compress.

Is GH trying to make us feel sorry for Sonny with a lame imitation of the classic ALL MY CHILDREN plot where Janet trapped Natalie in a well?

If so, they should realize that the big difference is that viewers were actually rooting for Natalie to escape.

I, basically, have felt the same way, Alan….I have noticed the “poor, poor” Sonny indoctrination since I started watching GH. Sometimes the commiseration is proffered subtly; sometimes arrogantly thrown in my face. It is non-stop. I said the same thing; are the PTB trying to make us feel sorry for Sonny? It has not worked the last time he was shot, and it “ain’t” working now.

Great question, my Timmmy. I say Victor. Why? Not even a million doses of Viagra could help him. Then, he’d just leave be. LOL.
Thing is, I do not dislike Victor. Go figure!!! The mind works in mysterious ways.
HaHa. My mind has never gone there. Ewwww.
I guess it’s because Victor is credible. He truly is scary to me. Sonny is just a joke. Can’t take his chilly, evil stare ( which is supposed to instill fear in anyone who crosses his path) seriously.
I just started taking Tae kwon do; I can take him…HaHa!!

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.
