GENERAL HOSPITAL: Will Nina’s Guilty Conscience Ruin a Marriage Proposal From Sonny?

Photo: ABC

This week on General Hospital, Sonny (Maurice Benard) has a marriage proposal for Nina (Cynthia Watros).  However, she’s feeling the walls may be closing in on her when she regrets her actions against Drew (Cameron Mathison) and Carly (Laura Wright).  As GH viewers know, she had turned them into the SEC for insider trading as a revenge-tactic against Carly.

In the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Sonny (Maurice Benard) is set to take a big step and ask Nina to marry him.  This, comes on the heels of Nina bowing out of attending Michael (Chad Duell) and Willow’s (Katelyn MacMullen) wedding, to keep the peace in the family, and letting him attend alone.

On the latest developments, Maurice Benard shared with SOD on the marriage proposal: “It’s not an immediate yes from Nina. I think because she’s already done the bad deed (of calling the SEC).  She’s trying to get out of it, so she doesn’t dig herself deeper.”

Previewing Sonny’s profession of love to Nina, the three-time Daytime Emmy winner said of the upcoming scenes: “That was my job as an actor, to convince her in this monologue that, ‘I don’t care about what you’ve done.’ He doesn’t care about anything but her, ‘and I love you, and let’s do this.'”

As to how he thinks Sonny’s proposal to Nina stacks up with others in his GH career, “I’m not saying this is the best, but I am saying it’s up there with the best that I’ve had.”

Of course, what will happen if Sonny finds out what Nina did to Carly with the SEC insider trading deception? Stay tuned.

Check out the promo for this week’s GH below, then let us know. Are you hoping Sonny and Nina get engaged? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

When the scenes air of when everyone finds out what Nina did, they are going to be pivotal because I know all the acotrs involved in those scenes will be on their A-game…can’t wait!!!

Better hide the weapons when the truth comes out. Nina will lose Willow for good and she can kiss any chance of ever seeing her other grandchild goodbye.
I don’t see Carly going back to Sonny though. If anything it’s going to bolster Carly and Drew’s bond.
I bet a drunk Martin let’s it slip and Diane finds out. My guess is Nina will want a fast wedding and it all comes out there.

Good. Hope Nina takes a hike and gives up on Twitto. However, Maurice’s acting has been quite elevated since his character hooked up with Cynthia’s Nina. When he proposed, his voice cracked and tears welled up in his eyes. Too bad he has awful, spoiled, self-entitled, bratty stepchildren.

Maurice has always been a great actor period! I just can’t do the Nina thing anymore, it’s sickening! The character, Nina is a waste of Cynthia’s talent!

You’re right

Harry I agree with you about Maurice doing a fine job.

Exactly. Carly is going to stop the wedding and Sonny will walk away from Nina. I didn’t like them together anyway.

I hope so !! Sick of Nina always blaming Carly.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but didn’t Carly and Drew commit a crime? This story is so lopsided and clumsy. The writers persist in propping up Carly as some kind of heroine when she’s really a terrible human being. I nearly screamed in my pillow when Drew complained to Carly,” Tracy does terrible things but never faces the consequences of her actions.” Um.. who is writing this crappolla? The writing is so bad that I do not dread the day when the results of the writers’ strike appears on the screen.

Good analysis Harry.

Also, why should Michael then be applauded for not turning over the proof of Sonny’s crime?

Carly is not a heroine. She’s a flawed individual that needs to face the consequences of her actions every once in a while.

Sonny needs to take his blinders off and see what a truly despicable person Nina is and always has been.

Shari,
That will hurt his ego to think how bad his judgement was.

Thank you!!

Nina is a flawed person who is doing the best that she can. There’s a reason why Sasha adores her. Sasha is the daughter Nina deserves but she ended up with an embittered Twitto, a former cult member who thinks she was better off with Harmony than with Nina. Harmony sex trafficked her minor daughter to a cult member who repeatedly raped and drugged her. Nina is guilty of giving into her overly protective maternal instincts.

Boy, that’s a stretch! Sasha also believes that Gladys has her best interest at heart and look what she is doing to her behind her hack!

Lew S,
Yes, after this, she’ll be afraid to trust anyone, just hope it doesn’t include Cody, I really like him but he’s so misunderstood.

Sonny is a mob boss yet he is looking so stupid believing and trusting Nina! This has gone on way too long!

Sylvia Bray,
With men, their brains and other organs think differently and being a mob boss doesn’t make a difference, if he was so smart, he wouldn’t be one in the first place.

I agree, Sonny needs to see the true Nina. She does cruel deeds then plays the victim and tries to justify. She wants to always blame Carly for all her actions.

Sonny’s been getting nothing but bad advice since they threw Jason under the bus again. There’s not a snowball’s chance in my back yard that this idiotic situation with Nina would have lasted this long, had Jason been around to give him a reality check.

Michael & Carly have tried to tell him, of course, but their opinions would obviously be seen as “biased”. Dante & Kristina are both being written out of character in their acceptance of Nina (Carly’s not their mom, so let’s pretend they can easily accept this stupidity). And Dex has no standing to tell Sonny’s he’s on the wrong track, since he wasn’t around to know what the right track was.

Ava should have reminded Sonny what Nina did to their daughter Avery when she was born, but her Nina blinders are even worse than Sonny’s, apparently.

These people are all crazy, I just can’t decide which one is the worst.
Speaking of Avery, can’t wait till she spills the beans all over everyone.

They better make Drew grovel at Ned’s feet when all is said and done. Drew and Carly aren’t going to jail, so hopefully Drew will have to give Aurora to Ned or something like that. As for Carly, I can’t think of a reasonable consequence or a realistic (on GH) one either, so she’ll get probation or something lame.

On answer to the above question, will Nina’s guilty conscience, etc,etc
My answer is Let’s hope so!

So having been a fan of Cynthia since her spin as Annie Dutton on Guiding Light, I’ve always wondered when things may go a bit “nuts”. Nina (then played by Michelle Stafford) was awful to Ava with the whole baby snatching situation. The character then took a softer side once Cynthia took over the role. She plays the victim well, but if she is the bio-mom to Nelle, we know that there are genetics involved. I can’t remember the recent scene on GH, but I saw some “Annie Dutton” showing her colors…

Margherita,
Oh, you are so right. We know darn well if the nasty Nelle ( a real Annie Dutton clone), were to come back tomorrow, Nina would be right there to defend against every horrible thing she’s done. I keep waiting for this day to come but hope it never happens. I’ve been thinking if Willow dies it would be just her thing to swoop in and kidnap Wiley with Nina’s help.

There will be a fully functional ski resort on Beelzebub Mountain before Sonny marries Nina. They have been writing Sonny out of character ever since Tricky Dick Nixon Falls. Sonny told Brenda she was “dead to him” when the Feds forced her to wear a wire.

Nina has done worse than that to him at least twice a week, every week. And what she has done to Carly & Drew this time around is the worst of all. It’s not only another betrayal of Sonny in this case, but also a betrayal of her own alleged daughter Willow, who she claims to love so much. Not only because Willow asked her to back off her vendetta against Carly (as if stealing her husband and her hotel wasn’t enough??) but also because Drew was just involved in rescuing Dr Ooblech from the clutches of Hell’s latest dragon stable attendant, Victor Cassadine, so she could provide the bone marrow which presumably has now put Willow on the road to recovery from leukemia.

Sure we can argue over Drew’s actual importance in that mission. But he was there… and that should count for something, compared to what Nina’s done to “help” Willow.. which ain’t much.

So enough already. It’s time to end the Tricky Dick Nixon Falls storyline for real.

And not a moment too soon!!!

I so agree!

NINA HAS GOTTEN AWAY WITH TOO MUCH DIRT…SHE NEEDS TO BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR HER MISDEEDS & WHAT SEEMS TO BE JOSSH PROBLEM WITH SONNY…HE IS TRYING TO STEER HER CLEAR OF A KILLER AS A BOYFRIEND.

I hope Nina secret is out soon. Her and sonny are a terrible couple. No chemistry!!! I feel bad for ned. I can’t wait till they realize he didn’t do it and have to apologize

How stupid are these people wouldn’t they realize that Ned didn’t do ot because he knew everyone would come after him

Crystal,
Yes, his own wife and mother don’t even believe him.Im sure Olivia will apologize with some damn Lasagna or whatever, I can’t believe that bitch Carley expected Olivia to throw Ned out of his own family home!

Crystal,
Poor Ned, even his wife and mother won’t believe or support him. Carly thinks Olivia should throw him out of his own family home, of all the unmitigated gall that bitch has!

I don’t want Sonny to marry Nina. She so messy.She really need to disappear.

Ewww! No Sonny doesn’t need to be with Nina since he clearly still in love with Carly. Yes they had a little romance in Nixon Falls, but he also thought he was a man named Mike (named after his deceased father). When he got his memory back in the fire, the first person he thought about was CARLY. Stop continuing this crappy story and let whining attention seeking Nina be by herself, while letting Sonny and Carly find their way back to each other. Quiet as it’s kept, Drew is boring and he’s no Jason (who definitely DID NOT need to marry Carly). Sonny is Carly’s forever. Let Carly and Sonny Reunite and be happy.

I hope Sonny dumps Nina. It seems like everyone including Nina has forgotten about her keeping Sonny’s entire family away from him for 9 months !!It’s always what Carly did, when she was always following Willows wishes.

I hope Sonny Doesn’t marry Nina! I can’t stand that conniving ugly insecure woman! I wish that Sonny and Carly get back together as they always have over the past 30yrs of watching. Because I’m at the point of not watching this soap opera anymore since Sonny has been with Nina. Ukkk

It will be drawn out till next mays sweeps smh at the alter

Looking forward to Tracy foiling whatever Drew and Carly try to do to her. Poor Ned not even his wife or mother believe him. ha ha I’m glad his daughter believes him at least. Nina, Carly and Sonny all deserve each other. Michael and Willow need to go to Paris permanently so we viewers won’t have to hear the name “Wiley” 50 times per episode. Joss and Spencer need to be banished to an island of entitled brats. Gladys and Selina need to face Sonny’s wrath.

Carrie,
Hey, you forgot that Joss and Spencer should take Trina and Dex with them.

GH’s Dominic Zamprogna Opens Up on Concerns that Dante Was A-Goner: “There’s Any Number of Ways Comas Can Go”

When Detective Dante Falconeri was shot by a Pikeman henchman, and Jason (Steve Burton) was revealed alive and well, it put actor Dominic Zamprogna in a coma, and a bad one in soap terms, at that. For awhile there, it was touch and go for Dante.

The good news is Dante pulled through and is now back to his old self, and just in time for Dominic Zamprogna’s 15th anniversary with the ABC daytime drama series, which is June 22nd.

Dominic spoke to Soap Opera Digest on his milestone, and reflected back on the fan response from earlier this year when it may have appeared he was exiting the show for a second time.

Zamprogna shared, “It’s nice to hear you say that people were worried about me – when I went into Frank’s (Valentini, EP, GH) office and he told me I was going into a coma, I started to worry about me (laughs)!”

From working on GH for a decade and a half now, Zamprogna has seen his fair share of comas, and in fact, his then on-screen wife, Lulu Spencer Falconeri was written off the show having never awakened from her coma.

“There’s any number of ways comas can go,” said the popular GH star. “People joke, ‘Oh, you’ve got easy work.’ And it’s like, ‘Yeah, as long as it’s an on-screen coma! I don’t want to be in an off-screen coma, because then I’m not on the show!” But honestly, that means the world because we all care what people think about us, you know? And if people are happy to have me around, it feels good, obviously. I’d be lying if I said it didn’t.”

So, are you glad that Dante is still alive and kicking? Did you think the show might write-off Dante after he was shot a few months back? Is it time, as Dominic head towards his 20th anniversary with the soap opera, for the powers-that-be to bring Lulu out of her coma? Should Dante and Sam (Kelly Monaco) eventually tie the knot?

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Mac Comes Home

You probably needed the hankies during today’s Wednesday, June 19th episode of General Hospital, for it marked the return of fan favorite John J. York to his role as Mac Scorpio.

This was to be York’s first episode back on-screen since he underwent treatment for two blood cancers and revealed his health diagnosis and battle publicly back in September of 2023.

The scenes involving Mac gave viewers all the feels, and it looked as if reality and the soap blurred, especially in York’s scenes with his on-screen children, Maxie (who Max raised) and grandchildren, Georgie, James, and Bailey Louise, and wife, Felicia (Kristina Wagner).

Since Mac was out of town supposedly down in South America helping a ‘friend’, some things have changed, including Spinelli (Bradford Anderson). having moved in with Maxie and the kids, to which Mac does not disapprove.

In the meantime, Cody (Josh Kelly) is a man in conflict when he has second thoughts about not telling Mac he is his biological son.  When James shows up Maxie’s with Cody in tow, he lays his eyes upon the just-arrived-back-in-town Mac. The two share pleasant “hellos.” Later, back at the Quartermaine stables, Cody tells Tracy (Jane Elliot) the long and winding road story of not knowing who is father was for most of his life. Cody shares he finally found his father in Port Charles, but his father doesn’t know he has a son. Tracy thinks Cody now has a chance to re-set some things and should come clean.

Courtesy/ABC

Meanwhile, Felicia keeps getting calls from Maxie while she is work at General Hospital and does not pick up. So, Felicia is unaware that her husband is back. Eventually, Felicia arrives at Maxie’s and is in for a big surprise when Mac appears and the two hug and share a kiss.

After the episode aired, and seeing the reaction from GH fans, John J. York took to his account on X. York expressed, “WOW!!! I’m just so humbled by your warm, kind and gracious words as Mac returned to PC! Your support has been monumental! I have a feeling, things are about to get interesting!”

So, what did you think about Mac’s homecoming on GH? Were you touched just seeing John J. York back in action on the ABC soap opera? Comment below.

General Hospital’s Jophielle Love Talks On Violet’s Emotional Scenes with Finn, the Loss of Gregory, and Taylor Swift

During General Hospital’s recent episodes surrounding the death of Gregory Chase (Gregory Harrison), who succumbed to complications from ALS, many in the cast delivered touching performances; including Jophielle Love (Violet).

In story, Violet learns of her grandfather’s passing when she comes home from school and her father, Finn (Michael Easton) sits her down to explain that Gregory passed away in the middle of the night. Violet’s reaction was one of devastation and tears.

Michael Fairman TV caught with Jophielle on the red carpet at the recent 51st annual Daytime Creative Arts and Lifestyle Emmy Award ceremonies, where she was a nominee for Best Original Song for the song she co-wrote, “Shine.” The track was first heard back on a December 2023 episode of the ABC daytime drama series and is currently available on Spotify and other music streaming platforms.

When talking about the departure of Gregory Harrison, and Violet’s reaction to her grandpa’s passing, Love shared, “Well, I was very tired from the taping of the three-day wedding, so I already had the tears in me. I knew that I was always going to see him (Gregory Harrison) in real life, but I was also very, very sad he was leaving the show. He was such a delight to work with.”

When Violet saw how difficult it was for her on-screen dad, Finn, to cope with with the death of Gregory, Love shared, “It’s hard for Violet, but Michael and I, we still see each other and he’s always happy (in real life). But, those scenes were hard. I was comforting him.”

Receiving her first Daytime Emmy nomination as songwriter was a thrill for Jophielle: “Well first of all, I was jumping up and down and Frank Valentini (executive producer, GH) came and told me while I was on set. I was just so excited.”

Since pop superstar, Taylor Swift, started at a very young age as a singer and a songwriter, does Love see herself as a mini-Taylor? Jophielle emphatically stated, “I’m a mini Me“.  As to what she thinks of the record-setting Swift’s music, and if she likes her work. Love shared, “Yeah, yeah … so, so…”

What did you think of Jophielle’s performance during the passing of Gregory? And her comments here on Gregory Harrison, Michael Easton and Taylor Swift? Comment below.
