GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Takes the Stand and Winds Up Torching His Marriage to Carly

Courtesy/ABC

On Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital, the moment finally came and in dramatic fashion where Carly (Laura Wright) has found out about Sonny aka “Mike” (Maurice Benard) relationship with Nina (Cynthia Watros) while he was in Nixon Falls; all thanks to a duped Willow (Katelyn MacMullen), or so Michael (Chad Duell) thinks.

While on the stand during Nina’s trial, Willow admits to Scott (Kin Shriner), who is Nina’s defense attorney, that she overheard Nina and Sonny talking where Nina said their love was the purest.  However, it ended when his memories of Sonny returned.  While in the courtroom, Carly is beginning to have the realization that more went on between her husband and Nina than she initially thought.

The judge in the case decides he wants to hear from Sonny and he is called to the witness stand. When the judge asks Sonny if he had a personal relationship with Ms. Reeves while in Nixon Falls, Sonny admits that he and Nina did fall in love.  When the judge pointedly asks Sonny if he sees himself as a victim of a crime, he answers “no’.

After he exits the stand, Sonny tries to approach Carly, but she runs out in tears.  Nina gets upset with Scott for what he did to Willow on the stand, but he says his job is to win the case for her.  Following the closing arguments, the judge says after all was said and done, he needs time to deliberate.   When Sonny tracks down Carly, things look bad for CarSon!

Elsewhere, Ned (Wally Kurth) and Olivia (Lisa LoCicero) learn from the doctor, that Leo does indeed have Autism Spectrum Disorder. The doctor informs the parents that they can get Leo into programs that will help him and promises that Leo will live a happy, and fulfilling life.  Ned and Olivia are emotional, but try to soldier on, knowing that they will be there for Leo every step of the way.

So, what did you think of yesterday’s GH? Are you glad that Carly finally knows about Nina and Sonny? What do you hope happens next? Weigh-in via the comment section below.

Sonny didn’t really do anything wrong here. Whatever “feelings” he thought he had for Nina back in Tricky Dick Nixon Falls were a result of her lying to him about who he was, and the fact that he had a wife & kids back home, believing he was dead. Of course Sonny – who has been known to feel a little of that good old “Catholic guilt” from time to time, blames himself for this more than Nina. Which (as they say on the planet Vulcan) would be “extremely illogical”. Should he have told Carly about it? Maybe, but he… Read more »

Ah but Nina dud not commit a crime. She may be guilty of a moral crime but she is certainly not guilty of legal crime. I realize it’s a soap but the stupidity of this storyline is off the charts. The writers should show some semblance of legal precedence.

Sony had said more than once–
He was happy and he did Not want to know who he was– He did Not want to know who he was—
He lived his life as Mike and Mike fell in love with Nina..
Even if Mike were told he was Sonny a Crime Boss/mobster he wouldn’t have wanted that life.
I don’t think Mike could have lived with that knowledge.
Nina let Sonny live in peace and happiness as Mike–
‘Mike as a very happy man, yup—

SuOOO, Just reading your post and you hit the nail right on the head. He liked being Mike, helping out other people, playing poker and taking down the bad guys to help Phyllis, et al and falling for Nina along the way. In fact, he probably misses the life he had there because he sure has not looked at all happy since he’s been back.I can’t believe he had Nina take him to his old place rather than one of his “safe” houses. I’d like to see him explain that decision to Carly. Many Happy New Year wishes to you… Read more »

Violet 🙂 good to hear from you, that lets me know you are doing well 🙂 Yes, Mike was living a different life a different time. I also believe Sonny would love to be Mike, again. It was the best life he ever lived, happy, carefree, at peace, yet he carried his edge. I think Sonny would chose to be Mike over being Sonny–but-he does have a family, even tho they are all Mob type crooks too LOL Anyways– Mike now lives in Sonny and Mike will never leave him nor will his love for Nina- And- remember- Nina hinted… Read more »

Thank you for the well wishes you sent my way. Im doing pretty good,doing my time. Not much choice at 89, huh? Still loving my soaps and all the wonderful people I’ve gotten to meet, like you, whether it’s to agree or disagree . My daughter has been gone for two years and I still miss our daily phone calls, doing the same thing.
Thanks again Su, Soapfully, we’ll meet up here soon.

I agree, Satan. And yet obnoxiously self-righteous, clumping Carly will get on her high horse… meanwhile SHE falls in/back in love with Jason WITHOUT the excuse of memory loss! And her insufferable, obnoxious son pouts that Nina will most likely not receive the death penalty. Such hypocrisy. And don’t get me started on Peter Puke. Can’t SOMEONE in that town ice this jerk? Heck, I’d settle for Esme or Epiphany doing the deed!

hi Soaphound–
I luvs Peter and now they should be calling Hinrick (sp)
He gets peoples blood pressure up–lol
He has emotions bubbling–
yah gotta luv hating him–waiting for his fall-
Everyone is on edge waiting for his death-
and that is a helluva character to create those emotions..
All soaps need their evil one to hype the waiting for his demise..
I will miss him when he’s gone–
I like yelling at him LOL 🙂

Nina never “lied to him about who he was; she just didn’t tell him she knew who he was. Big difference. Sonny wasn’t some lost, clueless soul. He was aware he had amnesia, aware he had a past, aware he was wearing a wedding ring, aware he was dreaming about a woman he couldn’t place. He CHOSE over and over to not find out who he was. That’s on him; not Nina. He was there for two months before Nina even got to Nixon Falls; he’d already made up his mind not to find out who he was. Nina actually… Read more »

Right… and that’s why she made sure that nobody from Port Charles who just happen to pass through Tricky Dick Nixon Falls ever saw him. Jax actually DID see him, but he conveniently got shot (minor shoulder wound) at the time, so Nina was able to convince him that he was “seeing things”. But there was also Trina, and Joss, and Maxie, and even Whiny Heiny who had to show up two or three times before he saw Sonny… and then realized the game Nina was playing with him. And Nina keeping the lie alive at that point is what… Read more »

Sata…it’s not like Nina HID Sonny. He conveniently wasn’t around when anyone came by other than appearing when Jax was shot and when Peter showed up. Nina STILL didn’t lie to him as in try to convince him he was someone else, nor did she tell him he had no one to go back to…she withheld what she knew. So, in essence, he would have been in the same position if she really didn’t know. Or if she had never been there. He chose not to find out his past. He made no effort; he was happy where he was.… Read more »

Rebecca- Happy New Year!!!!
I just wanted to mention;

She confessed her lifelong love to Jason when they got married.
Carly was living her dream when she married Jason.
Carly deceived Sonny throughout their marriage being in love with Jason, too.

Hi, Su! Thank you; Happy New Year to you, too! 😉 I agree; Carly was in love with Jason from the time she hit Port Charles 25 years ago (if I recall, way before your time). She tried to come between every relationship he had. On the other hand, she did love Sonny, too. I think it’s possible to love two people at the same time, which is why I think Sonny loves both Carly and Nina. Given that the Carly/Sonny fans are going rabid over Nina…they’re all up in arms, lol, Sonny will probably go back to Carly and… Read more »

The acting today was incredible. Willow looked like she was going to pass out on the stand recounting everything while Carly, Sonny and Michael were listening. I’m just glad the secret is out and this story can finally wrap up! I just can’t help but feel it would be that much better if Jason were still around, because Carly would run right to him which would create more drama for her and Sonny.

Oh Jimmy, KM was AWESOME today on that stand. Great, original acting choices; she was a real find for GH. Carly? She’s gonna milk this for every tear and clump of the heels she can muster. It’s Michael I can’t stand.. just a two-faced, womanizing, self-righteous jerk badly in need of shampoo.

Jimmy I was with Nina today with her arguing with Willow about spilling her guts on the stand. I was trying to coax her from the sidelines but she wouldn’t listen. I kept telling her to lie,who would know or say any different. Sure, we know it’s a sin and against the law to lie on the stand but sometimes it’s necessary. She claims she was trying to save Carly and Sonny, but all she did was make it way worse. Of course, most of us wanted this to happen and it did, in a very unsatisfying way, Carly telling… Read more »

I know, Violet. For weeks, Sonny has said he has no lingering romantic feelings for Nina. He claimed to just feel sorry for this “lonely, unhappy woman.” Then today, he takes a STUPID PILL and clams up. It just didn’t track with me. How about Michael punching Scottie in a maniacal fit of rage. Provoked or not, he’s a sick, obsessed time bomb full of hatred and hypocrisy. Though I did get a chuckle when his stupid hair flew all over the place after the punch. I wish I could edit it into a repeat run for an anytime laugh!… Read more »

Not going to say Scotty didn’t deserve it, but it’s not really a good idea to punch a lawyer in the face in the middle of a courthouse. Bad move, Mikey!

Michael is all about the sucker punch because he’s a coward and knows he could never win a fair fight. He did the same thing to the saintly Chase, who really didn’t deserve it.

Willow used to be an amazing character- strong willed, working to overcome her tragic past. But they have her foolishly choose the superior Chase over the inferior Michael, and in so doing, Willow forfeits her character and becomes a Stepford wife. This writing would be acceptable only IF Willow confronted her propensity to be a cult follower. She’s gone from one cult to another. And now, along with Michael, she’s become a pearl clutcher, a hypocrite, and a member of the Port Charles Young Republican Club. And she used to be contender. Michael has always been a whiny, little bitch… Read more »

Yes, Harry! I can’t stand the sight of Michael anymore! Always trashing wonderful Chase, targeting Nina, hiding behind Wiley’s “safety”, imagining he’s Michael Corleone, not Corinthos. Willow should reexamine her choices before her soul is totally lost.

Harry
Guest

I agree Soaphound! Are the writers deliberately trying to make us hate Michael? Michael cold-cocking Scotty was reminiscent of when he cold-cocked Chase in the locker room. It’s a cowardly act, and the act of a bully. Chase didn’t see it coming and he certainly didn’t have it coming. I’m waiting for Brooklyn to channel Pretty Woman and say to Willow,”You made a BIG mistake! HUGE!” And how ridiculous did he look when he tried to act like a bad ass to Mrs Wu. I could see her smirking and wanted her to smirk and sarcastically say,” Oh shudder.”

They seem to be developing Michael into the next generation Corinthos. Shame he didn’t use the wrath he has toward Nina and Scott and turn it against Carly & Sonny for taking him from his real father, hurting his father through the years and ultimately killing him. Had Michael hung on to that wrath and the Quartermaine name we would have had a much more interesting story going forward. Michael taking on the man who killed his dad; turning the mother away who kept him from his Quartermaine roots. Resentment that lasted more than a few weeks…

Rebecca1, AMEN to everything you’ve said. As I’ve thought before, he seems to think he’s Michael Corleone, not Corinthos. He forsakes the good qualities of A.J. and/or Sonny (or even Jason) and just acts on all their worst tendencies: impatience, narcissism, tunnel vision, and petty revenge. He seems to have also forsaken a decent hairdresser and quality shampoo. Just saying.

LOL! I did get a good laugh out of that hair comment, Soaphound, and I know you’re not alone in that thought but I actually like Chad’s hair longer. Very European…Not to say I didn’t like it short, but I think he looks good with it as is. I DO think he’s behaving like Sonny, and that’s the problem. Sonny, for me, doesn’t have many redeeming qualities, and Michael’s sudden fire about protecting what’s his is very reminiscent of early Sonny up to present day. Out for revenge; big on threats to anyone who hurts his family. Trouble is he… Read more »

Iam with everyone on this Michael thing. We can’t all be wrong, right? To me he’s feeling his Cheereos, like they say and flexing his muscles because of who his daddy is. He’s forgetting though, he doesn’t have Jason there to protect him. I can’t wait until he really offends someone and they throw him on his sorry ass. Maybe Willow will come to his defense. I wish she had stood up for her mom more when she brought the toy train to Wylie. Boy that kid is growing fast, almost bigger than Avery.

AJ is only Michael’s biological father, since Michael was shot, AJ made a CHOICE to protect himself and play dad rather than be there when Michael needed him (killing Claudia, trial, jail rape, family deaths…) that had nothing to do with Carly and AJ. What those two did was waaaayyyy wrong, but over the years AJ got his own back. What the writers should have done when AJ decided to reappear is have him and Carly become a couple again (they did ‘hook-up’ and Laura and Sean were hot!), putting a giant wedge between Carly and Sonny and giving Michael… Read more »

Moors60; AJ was “only Michael’s biological father” because Sonny & Carly prevented him from being more. They wouldn’t let him visit or talk to him. AJ had to kidnap Michael just to get a moment with him. You sound as if AJ could have just stepped in; he couldn’t. It’s just as maddening to me that the current writers are doing something similar with Ava and Avery. There’s no way Ava (when we met her) would have let Sonny keep sole custody and let Carly parade around and raise Avery to call her “mommy.” The writers never even have scenes… Read more »

[Check out the YouTube video where Carly and AJ have hate sex and Monica catches Carly the next day. It is hilarious!] On to the show… Carly had AJ were involved before she was involved with Sonny. And all this animosity between these characters started because the Q”s, once AJ and Carly got divorced, threatened to take Michael from Carly permanently because she was seeing Sonny. The beginning of astonishing hypocrisy and unjustified self-righteousness on the Q’s part! The Q’s are not some lovely, loving, welcoming family like the Webbers or Hardys. They are more Cassadine-like. Edward used mob money… Read more »

Moors 60; I have to disagree with most of what you wrote. The Quartermaines are not a mob family. By the time Michael was born, aside from their in-house squabbling and ELQ dealings, they were not the direct threat to a child’s well-being; Sonny was. He was an active mob boss; Michael got shot in the head with a bullet meant for him. Was comatose for a year. Had to kill Claudia Zaccharia to protect his mother because SONNY brought Claudia into their lives… Carly the better mother than Ava? No. It’s CARLY who chose a life of crime for… Read more »

Oh Harry, thanks for that reminder! Mrs. Wu could squash Michael with a fingernail. He looked so ludicrous, like a schoolyard punk who’s only brave when his posse is surrounding him. So childish! And I still feel Chase should have filed assault charges. That particular, cowardly action can cause lasting damage in real life. Michael needs a major wake-up call, hopefully courtesy of Mrs. Wu.

In response to all of the above…whether it’s the Q or mob/ Corrinthos//Carly histories I have to question why I even bother to watch. Isn’t there enough bad stuff in real life. Why watch GH for “entertainment?” And probably why I liked the Dixon Falls story. Something I will consider for the new year.

Unfortunately, you are so right! It’s been almost decades since GH was must-see-tv! I totally agree with the fact they’ve got the best cast, talent-wise, but don’t understand why the writers keep winning Emmys! Ditto, the show and the directors. The only outstanding episode I can remember in the last decade was the Luke’s past episode where we found out about his father, the abuse etc. Laura was sublime as his mother as was Chloe Lanier as Pat. TG definitely deserved that Emmy. And while I can understand the decision to keep Maurice when he came on as Sonny, even… Read more »

moors60…I agree with you on all counts. Hoping Felicia coming back to partner up with Anna is a bit of a throwback to both women’s fun “crime” solving.

I never disliked Michael until his Mr. Hyde changed to Dr. Jekyll the last few weeks. I must admit an additional negative bias towards him since the real life Sally Spectre split up.

The fact that Sonny returned to his bedroom on Carly and Jason’s wedding night, almost to consummate their vows with having told each other they were in love with each other… I can’t even! Mike had no idea who he was. Nina, well, she had a very good understanding of who “Mike” was, but the two of them only danced and kissed and slowly developed a relationship. I don’t know. I think that GH had to quickly switch gears with this storyline per ABC vaccine mandate (rightfully as a private enterprise to implement in order to protect the cast and… Read more »

Carly and Jason have loved each other for almost 30 years, not been “in love”. If they had been in love all this time, they would have gotten together before when they were both free, or had an affair. To save Sonny’s business and save their families lives, they got married. Then they decided not to be sexless marriage forever and that love evolved into more. This does not compare to what a man feels who doesn’t even know who he is. Mike isn’t real, not to mention a figment of very, very bad writing! He’s not a whole person… Read more »

Sonny was living as “Mike” for three months before Nina found him. So, it was a matter of six months, not nine months. I’m not condoning what Nina did, it was morally wrong. But she did not steal his identity or commit fraud. That was just a ridiculous storyline.

Carly’s hypocrisy and audacity really turn me upside-down. Isn’t she in love with Jason? Hasn’t she been so for decades? If Jason were to re-incarnate, would Carly be able to keep her “gambe” together?. She should be thankful Nina and “Mike” had no sex……I don’t see the attraction anyway. Nina must be desperate. Go figure these writers. I mean, they offer a Super-Sexy-Sonny who supposedly exudes sex appeal from every yucky pore? Give the woman a modicum of pride and self-preservation. Sonny should be removed from the “stud” list—-if he ever was on one. I guess he must be kept… Read more »

Sonny was DEFINITELY on the super stud list when he first came on! Check out the YouTube vids of him during the Stone and Robin days and when he was with Brenda. He was never supposed to be on but a month or two, but women flocked to the show because MB was FINE!

Waaay before my time—-Plus, be that as it may, he is no stud any longer. Besides, he’s too short to have ever been all that!! And, not my type.
His time has come and gone, gone, gone. He’s no Sean Connery who was a hunk even in his 80’s!!
Therefore, storylines should be written accordingly. Audiences change on a daily basis. It’s 2022. Sonny is presently not your typical hottie hearthrob.. …so, fighting over this not-so-lavishly sexy guy, is ridiculous. My opinion .

You are so right. There is stature and there is stature. Sonny’s was not in height, and then those dimples that he now keeps covered with all that grizzly grey hair. I think they got the ladies attention big time. I always felt they were trying to fashion him after John Gotti, who wasn’t all that good looking, but a very colorful figure nonetheless.

For what it’s worth—I’d rather see Sonny and Nina together. I think she has that je ne sais quoi, soft aura about her soooo lacking in Carly. Plus, I loved their easy banter and camaraderie—-too bad we didn’t get to see the relationshim blossom –Yet, it seems we soon shall.
The spark is there.
Sonny has never been a favorite of mine, but with Nina? Well, he’s a completely different, likable character.

Nina’s actions were questionable, yes—-but what she did cannot compare to some of the stunts Carly pulled. I think Nina was aware that what she was doing was wrong, but she psychologically removed herself from reality—-why? To battle the pain of losing a daughter with whom she never had an opportunity to develop a relationship as mother and child—-In her mind, Carly truncated all hope of that. As I said, Sonny is no heartthrob, so I still don’t get it!! Exactly what does she see in him? Obviously, the writers do.

All true, Celia. And let’s not forget Nina’s initial phone call, and instinct, to phone Carly and tell her Sonny was alive. The response: typically nasty, retributive nonsense from The Clumping Clods before Nina could even get a word in. Nina has issues but Carly is toxic. So is her son.

And, yes—-toxic is THE word. I guess I’m not the only one who cannot stomach Michael and his puppy-eyes. His hair still needs a good, honest-to-goodness, old-fashioned scrubbing.
…..Which brings Willow to question. I used to truly like her. Now, thev fakeness of ready tears has become part of the scenery—Better a rich, monotonous Quartermaine than a hot, scrumptious, “I wanna kiss you all over”, “lowly” cop.

I don’t really get the “pain of losing her daughter with whom she never had a chance to develop a relationship”…what has that got to do with Carly? Nina lost her daughter because of the actions of her mother over 20 years ago, not because of anything Carly did or intended! Carly didn’t even know about Nelle being Nina’s daughter until AFTER Nelle was already dead, so Nina wouldn’t have had a chance to have a relationship with her anyway. Nina, post-revelation, has made up this version of Nelle as just a troubled soul who only needed a mother’s love,… Read more »

The acting is saving this miserable story. It’s hard to buy into this story because of the handling of the Nixon Falls story and rushed the Jason/Carly stuff. Nina is morally wrong on a lot of levels, whether “Mike” wanted to know or not, she should have told him she knew who he was & that he had children. This is where story loses me, that and Sonny was “Mike” (nothing like Sonny with no memory), he & Nina barely knew each other at the Tan-0. Most importantly, Sonny is a family man who would never forgive Nina for keeping… Read more »

GH’s Michael E. Knight Chats On: Taking on the Role of Martin Grey, Friendship with James Patrick Stuart, and All My Children’s Tad

Last Thursday night during a livestream interview, General Hospital’s Michael E. Knight chatted with Michael Fairman on You Tube’s Michael Fairman Channel about returning to daytime in the role of legal eagle Martin Grey, and mixing it up with some of the most famous notables and actors that currently and historically have graced the screens on the ABC daytime drama series.

In case you missed it, the replay of the conversation with three-time Daytime Emmy winner is now available.  During the chat, Knight reveals what is has been like to play the on-screen half-brother of Genie Francis (Laura), if he enjoys the courtroom scenes in which Martin had to defend some of the most notorious in town including Nelle Benson (Chloe Lanier), and more.

Courtesy/ABC

Fans of GH are also enjoying the romantic pairing of Lucy Coe and Martin, pairing Knight with another soap vet, Lynn Herring.  Michael shares that it’s nice to see, and appreciates, the writers creating a fun relationship for a couple that is middle-aged instead of always seeing the younger sets escapades all of the time on daytime TV.

All My Children fans, of course, recall Michael’s memorable performances through the years as Tad Martin, where he became synonymous with Pine Valley.  After AMC came to its conclusion in 2011 on ABC and 2013 with Prospect Park, Knight finally returned to soaps in 2015 in the recurring role of Dr. Simon Neville on The Young and the Restless before joining the cast of GH in 2019.

During the interview, Michael shares behind the scenes stories of working with his on-screen parents, Mary Fickett (Ruth) and Ray MacDonnell (Joe), his enduring on-screen love story with Dixie (Cady McClain), and the heyday of AMC in story, with his on-screen sister, Jenny played by Kim Delaney. When Michael came to GH, viewers recall he actually got to share an inside moment with Kim and the fans, when Martin met Jackie Templeton, then played by Delaney.

During the livestream, Michael recalled several of Tad’s wives, and when one fan asked if Cady McClain might come to GH as Dixie, and that maybe she could be a woman from Martin’s past, Knight shared that it could be interesting.

Photo: ABC

In a surprise appearance later in the livestream, James Patrick Stuart (Valentin, GH), who has an enduring friendship with Michael, and happened to be at Knight’s house, shared some memories of his time as Will Cortlandt on All My Children. Now decades later, things have come full-circle for the good friends as they share screen-time on General Hospital as Valentin and Martin.

Stuart is a Daytime Emmy nominee this year for the Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series category at the upcoming 49th annual Daytime Emmy Awards, and we took a moment to congratulate him on being acknowledged by his peers for the second year in a row.  Currently, James is pulling double duty shooting his Disney+ show, Villains of Valley View, while also taping GH.
