GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Is Finally Arrested!

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

On Tuesday’s episode of ABC’s General Hospital, it was time the handcuffs came out for mobster Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard).

In a showdown between all the Corinthos men, Sonny has no choice but to surrender to his son the cop, Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) who arrests his father for the murder of AJ Quartermaine! For many in the viewing audience it was a long time coming for Sonny! After intense scenes between Michael (Chad Duell), where Sonny was staring down the barrel of a gun with a bullet with his name on it, Michael finally puts down the weapon after his brothers, Dante and Morgan (Bryan Craig) arrive on the scene at the brownstone.

Michael is so filled with grief, betrayal, and hatred over learning that it was Sonny who killed his biological father and had lied about for months.  Kudos go to Chad Duell for showing the devastating pain and conflict that Michael was going through as he was about to shoot the man who for years he called his “dad”!  As for Maurice Benard, he delivered another intense performance, mostly with his eyes and little dialog, as Sonny is caught with nowhere to run.   Dominic Zamprogna also had some terrific conflicted moments to play and he delivered, where Dante had to talk down Michael and then deal with Sonny, all the while trying to hold it together in the most horrific of family circumstances.

Later, after Sonny was taken down to the police station and booked for his crime, while D.A. Baldwin (Kin Shriner)smirked through the glass that Corinthos is finally going behind bars,  Michael learns of more betrayal from Morgan and Kiki (Kristen Alderson)! Yup! They knew that Sonny killed AJ …  and even more!  Leaving Michael to head to the bar and who should be there?  Rosalie! (Linda Elena Tovar)

Were you happy that finally Sonny was apprehended?  Do you hope they can keep him behind bars for his crime?  What did you think of the performances of the Corinthos men: Duell, Zamprogna, Craig and Benard?  And, will Michael and Rosalie hit the sheets? Comment below!

The scenes in the brownstone were amazing. I always know Maurice, Dom & Chad will deliver. The one that truly amazed me was Bryan Craig’s Morgan. He was wonderful. What a fine young addition to the Corinthos family.
Can’t wait to see what happens next!

Bryan Craig has certainly grown as an actor. I used to call him one of the Village Idiots (along with Kiki). Now, I really appreciate and enjoy his acting. I think working with such daytime royalty as Maurice Benard and Maura West has really helped shape him as an actor.

There was so much potential but the dialogue just wasn’t there. How can there be tense drama when we all know darned well Michael is not going to shoot Sonny, just as we know Sonny eventually will walk free again? And I’d wager my bottom dollar there will he no explosion when Dante opens the door to the prison holding the four captives. And if, by chance, a bomb does go off, we know Carly and Dante are safe. It’s like wasted time, placing all these characters in peril when there’s no ultimate payoff. Kind of like Dynastys Moldavian wedding… Read more »

ONE HOUR! Yes, one hour on Monday of Michael holding Sonny at gunpoint! What a waste of our time. As far as dialogue, what could Sonny have said. All three of his boys were there and they all knew the truth. Sonny will have to rub shoulders with Johnny Z until Dianne can find a loophole for Mr. Dimples to be set free. I would have Sonny lose everything and have to start over. Maybe go back to Bensonhurst and open a diner?

the scene was about ”emotions” not dialogue..
At times there are no words, just emotions..
Sometimes words are not needed when the acting is great..
In life there are the deep moments when there just are no words to be said, but they shout from the eyes.
The scene was perfect and as it should be .. emotionally intense..

(dialogue would have ruined the moment)

Thank you Timmm for getting it. I understand that there are people who are so captivated by this show that they think it can do no wrong. And, hey, good for them. There was I time I did. I wish I still felt the same. I don’t. I feel embarrassed watching it but, like cigarettes or booze or heroin or some other addictive substance, I can’t seem to give it up. I need GH rehab.

Su00, I can watch my two tabby cats emote for one hour before one swats at the other. There’s plenty of emotion and save for the occasional hiss and the internal growl, no dialogue. ‘What’s the point?’ You might ask? The point is that Michael was not allowed to be raised by his biological father after Sonny had Jason put AJ on a hook (literally) and kept him there until he signed away his paternal rights to Michael. Michael grew up thinking his father didn’t care for him. Sonny and Carly made AJ’s life a living hell and blocked his… Read more »

I agree with you su0000…100%. The scene was a powerhouse of a family coming apart; a man learning a horrible truth about his father’s murder by the hand of the man he called dad his whole life…it was about a father losing a cherished son..it was about brothers torn apart…it was just complete emotional devastation. Perfect the way it was…

Guest

I agree with su0000…the emotional tension that only grew as you saw Sonny exposed with all three sons at the same time for the one hour. It was worse for Sonny than getting shot in the first 5 minutes. And he might get off on a technicality but he will always have a life time sentence as to how his kids feel about him.

rebecca1
Guest
rebecca1

I don’t know Harry. On the one hand I agree with you…we share a fierce resentment and frustration at how AJ was treated all those years so I definitely get what you’re saying. But I think MIchael showed an ample amount of wrath, disgust, shock, realization, revulsion, hurt…and the piece de resistance (accent on 2 “e”s which I don’t know how to do on this computer!) is that he wanted to revenge AJ by killing Sonny. I don’t know if he would have actually have gone through with it…but the fact that he wanted to FOR AJ was satisfying in… Read more »

You have to admire certain fans for being su0000 supportive, no matter what… To me, the unyielding support and admiration of a despicable character, such as Sonny, is akin to enabling an abuser. He is a mean-spirited, abusive bully. Some villains are worthy of adulation because they have some redeeming qualities. I don’t see anything redeeming about Sonny. More specifically regarding the absurdity of these scenes, during which Michael held a gun on Sonny (for a seeming eternity), as eloquently stated by others here, we knew shots would never be fired, just as we know Sonny will be out of… Read more »

Yeah I hate to say it, I really do, because I like Chad, but he really didn’t stretch himself far enough in those scenes. He could have done so much more. And a better actor would have. I fear both he and Bryan Craig are picking up some bad habits from Benard. And you are right on the money…..the Duke and Anna scenes were far more interesting. And the over the top melodrama featuring the always dynamic Maura West, psycho Stafford and veteran Mills was far more riveting than the SonnyToons.

Just as I have for DECADES, I shake my head in amazement at people who call what Maurice Benard does acting! He has one expression … he’s laconic, world-weary, and mumbles his dialogue. And the fact that it’s taken THIS LONG to put him behind bars speaks VOLUMES about the incompetence of the PCPD. And yes, he’ll walk on a technicality. I’ve been sick of this character since the days he was exploiting Karen Wexler at the club, and remain nonplussed at the adoration he enjoys from millions of fans. I guess I’m just a lone voice in the wilderness… Read more »

Bill, let me add my voice to the wilderness… We are definitely on the same page. First, I agree with you about Benard’s acting abilities—he also likes to throw in a touch to his ear from time to time… My main gripe with GH is its overuse of Sonny and the mob, which has been the show’s focus for more than 2 decades. Undoubtedly, Sonny should be in prison for life, but, yes, he’ll be out on a technicality before you can say “Merry Christmas.” For too many years, GH was way too dark, largely because of the Sonny factor.… Read more »

GH is not a show about “mob stuff’, at least it didn’t start out that way. I’ve watched since 1978 and I assure you it was not always a mob show.

It’s a very good thing MB’s Sonny didn’t have a lot of dialog in that pivotal scene because he would have mumbled and fumbled and general messed it up. As for Sonny emoting with his eyes, yeah right. Chad Duell on the other hand, was in top form. Kudos to this young actor. General Hospital was completely hijacked back in the 90’s when Bernard’s dimples took on a life of their own and propelled him to romantic lead. Guza did a fast forward by trying to turn a hospital show into Sopranos light. There are still a lot of viewers… Read more »

I agree, Engrady. Now, I hate Sonny, and I agree that Mumbles often phones it in. But every now and then he has his moments and he can pull it off. I still see his spark now and then.
I love Maurice Benard but maybe it’s time for him to take a sabbatical.

Jamesj75

I am loving that the voices in the wilderness are adding up!

Engrady Pind, “hijacking” the show is exactly what happened. And I think it was, in part, an attempt to cash in on the success of “The Sopranos.” But it was misguided, and it has derailed a once-great show. I hope GH can get back on track soon.

I love GH but I’m not sure what it wants to be. It’s still described as a “medical” drama, yet the “about” page sums up the show as “love, danger and mind blowing plot twists…with contemporary story lines and unforgettable characters.” I think that’s pretty true to form; the days of Steve Hardy and stories revolving around the hospital are long gone. But then again so are Luke and Laura, Sean Donnelly, Casey the Alien (LOL), Lee and Audrey. We’ve got to accept it’s a different show, a different time. I personally think it does have a good mix; it… Read more »

I didn’t believe Michael would shoot Sonny but it would have been nice if they let him punch Sonny in the face—-or spit on him, something like that–all the pent up rage should have come out in some form to make it a bit more realistic. Also, the scene reminded me very much of the scene when Sonny was going to kill himself and his sons talked him out of it–very similar in tone. However overall I thought the confrontation was good, but with a bit of tweaking of the dialogue it could have been better–

To the person who asked me about Robin– I don’t see your comment here but I got it in my inbox. I imagine it would depend on when the actress is available as to when they will get back to that storyline. As for the rest of your comment, February is merely a guess on my part, it might be sooner—GH likes to do unexpected things, like make big reveals at odd times- just to keep viewers on their toes– so I could be wrong– I guess we’ll just have to keep watching to find out.

Loved Duell, Zamprogna , Craig & of course Benard, they were sssooooo good !! As for the storyline it was great. Sonny w/go to jail to meet up with Johnny but he won’t stay long. I like Sonny because he’s a Mobster w/a heart [he only bothers people when they mess with his family]. He is General Hospital…… There will be a technology to get him and Duke off.

AJ never messed with his family…Sonny stole AJ’s! Sonny spent a good two decades destroying AJ in one way or the other. Sonny never avenged Jason’s death, didn’t look for Carly when she was kidnapped by Heather, didn’t look for Ben/Rocco when he was taken by Dr. O…he’s a lone wolf. Gone are the days of Sonny, Jason, Stone, Robin, Brenda…or Sonny, Carly, Jason, Max…there was always a “family” type feel to Sonny and his clan. Now, he just gives Sean orders…but there’s none of that “inner circle” feel anymore. He got what he deserves…and what AJ deserves…justice.

AJ tried to kill Jason many years ago because of jealousy, don’t forget who caused the brain damage the Jason suffered causing the change in his personality in the first place. Sonny did not steal his family, Carly made the choice. AJ did his fair amount of damage to his family because Jason was favored with Monica [ she was his biological mother, not Jason’s] AJ kidnapped the children and said they were dead. Please remember when Rocco/Carly went missing Sonny did search and offered Dante assistance [check GH’s history] . Dante don’t like being Sonny involved in his business… Read more »

When did AJ try to kill Jason out of jealousy? What I remember is that AJ got in the car drunk and Jason tried to stop him and there was an accident–caused by AJ driving in his drunken state–that resulted in Jason’s brain damage. But if there was a deliberate attempt to harm Jason, I sure missed that part of the storyline.

Hi Michael (not Fairman). I didn’t remember that either but I looked it up. This was a separate incident…not referring to the accidental car crash that caused Jason’s injuries. Apparently, afterwards, AJ was consumed with despair and thought Jason would be left in a chronic, vegetative state so he hired someone to end his life. (I didn’t research it that thoroughly so I’m not sure of the exact details or why it didn’t work…or if he even got caught.) The point for me, as always regarding AJ, was that he was not an evil, violent man. He was a troubled… Read more »

Kim Delaney on All My Children Primetime Reboot: “All They Have To Do Is Ask, and I’m There”

While Kim Delaney is currently appearing on General Hospital in the role of Jackie Templeton, and she just appeared in her new Lifetime movie, The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt of Justice, the actress revealed she would be up for appearing in the upcoming primetime revival in development of All My Children.

Delaney became soap-famous in the role of AMC’s Jenny Gardner from 1981-1984 before she was killed-off the show in the now iconic jet ski explosion.

Now even though Jenny died, Kim would be up for figuring out how the character could be resurrected or how she could take part in the primetime reboot of the ABC soap opera called, Pine Valley.

In an interview with Soaps.com, Kim shared on being part of the reboot: “All they have to do is ask, and I’m there.  Sure, Jenny died, but someone asked me the other day if we ever saw her body. So maybe she’s out there, somewhere… ”

Former All My Children stars and real-life duo, Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos are executive producers of Pine Valley along with Andrew Stearn.

So, would you like to see an alive and well Jenny Gardner, or some other role for Delaney, in the All My Children reboot? Comment below.

TONIGHT: Kim Delaney Stars in Lifetime’s ‘The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice’

Make sure to catch General Hospital and former All My Children and NYPD Blue star, Kim Delaney (Jackie, GH, Ex-Jenny, AMC) tonight on Saturday, February 20th when her highly-anticipated Lifetime movie debuts beginning at 8pm EST/7pm CST which marks the cable network’s 400th original movie.

In The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice, it tells the story of Mari Gilbert’s search for the truth behind what happened to her daughter Shannan, a sometime escort who disappeared after a ‘date’ on Long Island.

After Shannan (Katharine Isabelle, Hannibal) fails to come home, her mother Mari (Delaney) knows something is terribly wrong. Pleading to police to take her concerns seriously, she keeps pushing the police for answers. Mari’s insistence that her daughter not be overlooked eventually leads to a horror hidden on Long Island for more than a decade – 19 bodies of young women discovered buried in shallow graves along Ocean Parkway in the area of Jones Beach State Park. Though the search for the killer is still ongoing, Mari’s passionate dedication to giving her daughter and other forgotten women a voice, and the attention they deserve, has kept the case alive with hopes of a breakthrough soon. The movie not only follows a mother’s tireless search for the truth, but it also digs deep into the murders, including Shannan’s, that have gone unsolved for so long.

Delaney’s film, executive produced by Deborah Norville, is based off real life-events that transpired in the early 2010’s where the crimes were never solved.

In an interview with 98.1 WOGL Radio’s Glenn Kalina, Delaney shared: “There is hope in the film… but you also want an answer… what happened to all of these girls?  My character just was relentless trying to find her (daughter) or find answers where she was.  They found a bunch of other bodies, and what they learned was that they were all escorts… and then they learned there was a possible serial killer.”

Check out a promo for the movie below.

Will you be watching Kim in her starring role in The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice? Let us know in the comment section.

‘ABC Daytime: Back on Broadway’ Raises $130,565 For Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS In Four Day Streaming Event

Last week, ABC Daytime fans were thrilled to see some of the archival footage and performances from the ABC Daytime: Salutes Broadway Cares benefit concerts by those who were once in the mighty soap programming block that included: All My Children, One Life to Live and General Hospital. 

While only GH remains, viewers still loved seeing many of their favorites perform in the streaming event, ABC Daytime: Back on Broadway, from Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, which featured footage from those events that ran from 2005-2011 in front of a live audience in New York City.

The 2021 online event, which kicked-off on February 11th and streamed for four days, featured new content with daytime favorites including: Susan Lucci, Cameron Mathison, Anthony Geary, Kelly Ripa and more, plus performances from the past benefits, and an original dance performance from Finola Hughes (Anna Devane) on the set of GH.

John Dietrich, who directed each of the ABC Daytime Salutes Broadway Cares concerts, wrote and directed the stream. It was presented in partnership with ABC Owned Television Stations’ websites around the country with support from Good Morning America and The View.

According to Broadway World, in total, the ABC Daytime Back on Broadway event raised $130,565. The streaming total includes a matching donation of $50,000 made by Broadway Cares supporters The Dream Alliance.  Now, when combined with the seven-year run of the annual concerts, the ABC Daytime stars have raised $2,020,565 for Broadway Cares.

As part of the event week, Michael Fairman chatted with former One Life to Live star, Catherine Hickland (Ex-Lindsay Rappaport) about her performances over the years at the event, her role of Lindsay and her on-screen feud with Nora (Hillary B. Smith), and more.  You can watch it below.
