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…

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.

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”.

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

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.

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 »

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.

Thing is, I do not dislike Victor. Go figure!!! The mind works in mysterious ways.

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!!

Lynn Herring Celebrates 35th Anniversary of Her General Hospital Debut; and ‘We Love Lucy’

Today, April 11th marks the 35th anniversary of the debut of Lynn Herring on General Hospital as Lucy Coe.  And wow, when you look at the road this character has gone on played to the hilt by Herring, it has been one entertaining ride for GH fans along the way.

Lucy started out as a mousy librarian, if you can believe that! And of course, she eventually showed all that she was a bombshell.  She then became quite the schemer and seductress.

Along the way, Lucy was married to Alan Quartermaine (the late Stuart Damon), was involved with Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner), Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom) and other men in Port Charles.

 

At one point, Herring took the character of Lucy to the now defunct Port Charles where she stayed from 1997-2003,

But this one time gold-digger eventually became the champion of the GH Nurses’ Ball and helped raise awareness and funds for HIV/AIDS research. Now, year after year, the one thing you can always look forward to is Herring’s hilarious antics and sincerity in her star turn as the emcee of the annual fundraising event.

On Sunday, the GH tweeted posted: “Lucy Coe knows everything about everyone in Port Charles and we would be lost without her. Please help us congratulate TheLynnHerring on the 35th Anniversary of her #GH debut”. 

Lynn responded sharing: “Thank you! Have loved every @GeneralHospital  moment!”

Share your congratulations to Lynn via the comment section below, and let us know your favorite Lucy moment too!

GENERAL HOSPITAL: “I’m Alexis Davis, and I’m a Fighter, and an Idealist, and an Advocate”; Nancy Lee Grahn Gives Masterful Performance In Special Episode

When you combine superb direction, writing, production, and acting in a special episode of a daytime drama, viewers can see and understand the thought and care that went into it.

This was more than on display during Thursday’s highly-anticipated ‘Alexis-Centric’ episode honoring the 25th anniversary of Alexis’ portrayer, two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Nancy Lee Grahn, on General Hospital.

Courtesy/ABC

In the story, symbolism was apparent and used for dramatic impact and it worked beautifully throughout, and best of all, Nancy received a script worthy of her immeasurable talents, and showed us once again why she remains one of the gold standards of our genre.  If you have not seen the episode DO NOT read any further as it contains spoilers.

It begins with an emotional Alexis looking at her mother’s watch which was still frozen from the time of her death.  While playing one of her mother’s records very loudly, she recalls Mikkos Cassadine kissing and dancing with her mom as a young Alexis (Natasha) looked on from the staircase.  When Sam asks her about it, Alexis shares that she sees the watch as sort of a representation for her own life being frozen over the last three years; which has included Alexis’ battle with booze taking over her life and her being disbarred, when being a lawyer was the way she identified herself and what gave her purpose.

Overwhelmed and anxiety-ridden, Alexis hightails it to Kevin’s office for a therapy session knowing she is going to Pentonville in the morning to serve her sentence.  She says she does not know who she is anymore.  Then, Kevin asks her how she spent her day thus far.  She flashes back to lunch with the good men in her life, Finn, Valentin, Jax and Ned.  Valentin tells Alexis she is proud of her for honing up to her mistakes.

Back at the therapy session, Alexis she was an attorney who stood for something and her life has derailed, and that she was a fighter, an idealist, and an advocate.  She knows she has to find a purpose in prison to make it through the three-year term and asks Kevin to help her find one.

Kevin wants to go back to when she was a little girl and her memories that are flooding back to her of Mikkos and her mother.  Just then, the younger version of Alexis is huddled in the corner of Kevin’s office, an image of her from the past.  Alexis tries to come to terms with her father and the choice of dangerous men and relationships that have marred her own happiness  … recalling Julian holding a knife to her throat like Mikkos did to her mother. She says he was one of the toxic men in her life, but Kevin reminds her all of the men in her life were not toxic.

Alexis starts with Ned as one who was good for her saying he was always stable, but she ruined that by recently sleeping with him and putting a wedge in his marriage to her long-time friend, Olivia.

We then flashback to earlier in the day, where Alexis ends up in an almost confrontation with Olivia.  However, Olivia tells her she misses the Alexis Davis she used to be and to get her back.

Now back with Kevin, a guilt-ridden Alexis relays she feels responsible for Neil’s death.  Kevin interjects she is not, nor what happened with Julian.  When Kevin attempts to bring up Mikkos again, Alexis rejects it and is angry that he is making her problem about daddy issues; like so many other women.  She vehemently shouts that the men in her life do not define who she is.

Then, Alexis flashes back to hurtful memories she has buried of a young Natasha witnessing Mikkos calling her mother a “greedy little bitch”.  She recalls it was on Christmas Eve and that Mikkos stopped by to give them gifts. That is when he presented her mother with the watch.  However, things took an ugly turn when he tried to leave, and she threatened to tell Helena all about her and Natasha. Next, Mikkos slapped her and that is when the watch shattered. As all this was going down, a young Natasha watched from the stairs and was horrified that she couldn’t stop her father from beating her mother and remembers how helpless she felt.

However, Alexis reveals to Kevin she thought this would be the last of Mikkos coming by, but he returned on New Year’s Eve and her mother took him back into their lives.  Alexis is beside herself that she could not protect her mother, but Kevin reassures her to remember she was just a child.

Courtesy/ABC

It is then we come to the crux of the story.  Alexis looks over in the corner and sees her younger self crying. She goes to her younger self and tells her nothing that happened was her fault, and that their father was damaged and cruel. She tells the young Natasha this shouldn’t have been her burden to carry alone, and that she deserves to be happy. Then in the moment of strength and coming full circle, Alexis introduces herself to the young Natasha, “I’m Alexis Davis, a fighter, an advocate, and an idealist … and I will take care of everything from her on out.”  In that moment, Alexis embraced herself, and forgave herself, so she could move on with her life.

Alexis then flashes back to earlier that night, as the Davis girls gather for a faux graduation ceremony so Alexis could see Molly in her cap and gown and they hug. Back in her session, Kevin remarks that Alexis has repeatedly defined herself as a fighter, an idealist, and an advocate, and reminds her she has three daughters who have those qualities, and that all she needs to be is Alexis Davis.

Then, we get a heart-warming montage of Alexis though the years in honor of Nancy’s 25th anniversary with GH.

Courtesy/ABC

As the episode concludes, it is the next morning, and Alexis enters Pentonville and enters her jail cell. There she meets her fellow inmate, who is studying law books to prep for her upcoming parole hearing. Alexis introduces herself as “Alexis Davis” and as someone who can help her.  We then go back to her mother’s watch which now begins ticking at Alexis’ home.  The show fades to black.

Kudos to Daytime Emmy winner, Phideaux Xavier for his outstanding direction, head writers: Chris Van Etten and Dan O’Connor and script writer, Scott Sickles for the thoughtful episode, EP Frank Valentini and his production crew for putting it all together, and the one and only Nancy Lee Grahn for a performance that will be remembered as a classic.

GH’s Kin Shriner Talks on Franco’s Demise, Scott’s Budding Romance with Obrecht, and His Enduring On-Screen Partnership with Genie Francis

One of the most beloved actors in the history of General Hospital, Kin Shriner, currently finds his alter-ego, Scott Baldwin, in a new budding on-screen romance with none other than Liesl Obrecht (Kathleen Gati).

This comes on the heels of Scott learning the devastating news that his son, Franco Baldwin was shot and killed, thus writing-off the ABC daytime drama series, for now, popular actor, Roger Howarth.

Photo: JPI

Throughout his now almost 44-year-run on the ABC daytime drama series, Kin Shriner has brought his unique acting chops that helped mold the character of legal eagle Scott Baldwin into the humorous, at times cutthroat, endearing and many times heartbreaking character we have all come to love.’

 

In a brand new exclusive virtual sit-down interview with Michael Fairman on You Tube’s The Michael Fairman Channel, Shriner opens up about his history with GH and the times he stepped away to take on roles on Texas and As the World Turns, and then back again to the town of Port Charles and GH.

Photo: ABC

As well, Kin reveals his reaction to learning the news that Roger Howarth would be exiting the show as his TV son and how he shot the key emotional scene where Laura (Genie Francis) tells Scott that Franco had died.  Shriner shares that he does not see how when Howarth returns to the show in as a yet-to-be-revealed character, that it would be a stretch if the two were some how related, but that he will miss working with the talented Howarth as a scene-partner.

Photo: JPI

As to the women in Scott’s life, Kin addresses each of them from: Lucy (Lynn Herring), Bobbie (Jackie Zeman), Dominque (Shell Danielson), Laura (Francis), Ava (Maura West) – to which the character could never get that close to – and now Liesl (Gati), and working opposite all the powerhouse actresses who portray them.

Photo: ABC

For fans of General Hospital who have watched the series for decades, Kin also shares memories of working with his late TV parents, Peter Hansen (Lee), Susan Brown (Gail) and his friend and former GH castmate John Reilly (Sean), plus backstage stories with his longtime scene partner, Genie Francis.

Watch the entire conversation with Kin below.

Now let us know, are you all for the Scott and Liesl romance? Will you miss scenes between Scott and Franco?  Would you ever want to see Scott and Laura reunite romantically? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
