GENERAL HOSPITAL: The Corinthos Men Tear It Up … Maurice Benard, Bryan Craig & Chad Duell!

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

On Monday’s episode of General Hospital, the stage was set for the pick-up of the Friday cliffhanger for Morgan’s (Bryan Craig) secret to finally implode on him!  While friends and family attended Morgan and Kiki’s (Kristen Alderson) wedding party, and father Sonny (Maurice Benard) was off his meds (and his moods were all over the place), he revealed that Morgan knew that Michael (Chad Duell) and Kiki were not related before Morgan got her to marry him!

Michael is furious with the revelation and lashes out at Morgan!  Morgan then becomes more and more desperate to have his father take back what he said and even goes so far as to say that Sonny is confused or drunk and attempts to make Sonny deny everything.

Sonny stands up to Morgan and tell him he is absolutely not confused, and that Connie told him he would end up hurting both his sons if he covered up the lie that Morgan asked him to do for him!  Kiki then confronts Morgan if he knew the truth about her and Michael not being related before their marriage, and he admits he did!  Then, an enraged Morgan lashes out in the most major way at Sonny for his betrayal and for him choosing Michael over him once again, and for being sent away to a boarding school, and being pushed aside by both he and Carly (Laura Wright)!

From there things between father and son disintegrate even further when after Sonny tells Morgan tricking Kiki into marrying him isn’t the answer to have true love, and he should want the kind of love that he had with Connie.  When Sonny tries to hug Morgan, all hell breaks loose!  Morgan calls Sonny a liar and a criminal, and then really hits Sonny where it hurts making a remark about Connie and her mental illness.  Sonny then looses it and lunges at Morgan and the father/son duo have to be broken up by everyone else still left in the room!

Later after Sonny is taken home by Carly and Olivia(Lisa LoCicero), Michael confronts Morgan as to why he hates him so much?  Morgan goes at him for stealing his girl from right under his nose! After telling Kiki to stay with him and their marriage, Kiki says she can’t because he lied to her!  However, Morgan accuses her of waiting for something to happen between them  to get out of their marriage, and so here it is now before her!

The performances by Maurice Benard, Bryan Craig and Chad Duell were pretty sensational as each had their moments!  The showdown between father and son, Sonny and Morgan, was also one of the most intense we have seen in a long time. Kudos to the Corinthos men for great work, and for the secret to be out to propel story forward!  And from the looks of it, a devastated Ava (Maura West) who just lost Silas (Michael Easton) to Sam (Kelly Monaco), and a devastated Morgan means  … you know what could happen on today’s episode!

Watch the scenes of yesterday’s GH below! What did you think of the performances of Maurice, Bryan and Chad? Did you like how the secret came out?  Comment below!

I would have enjoyed the scenes more if Morgan had thrown it in Sonny’s face that Jax had been more of a father to him than Sonny. Jax’s role in Morgan’s life seems to have been erased since they brought Morgan back.

Oh, I agree. The idea of sleeping with one’s son-in-law is absolutely disgusting, perverted and depraved. Writers, stop it!!! It is sick, to say the least. I do not think that anyone with a code of healthy morals will watch this….only sickos. I, for one, changed the channel when I saw Morgan groping Ava. I have never considered myself a prude, but this is where I draw the line. Shame on you, GH.!!!

It is a bit icky, but I saw this coming months ago. Very soapy! This creates tension w/Sonny, Carly, Silas, Michael…

good lord…. so many of us have watched for decades… this is nothing more than a ploy… catalyst… to further the acting … and intrigue… of the Jeromes and Sonny’s brood. i, for one… am… glad to see the new features… of Ava and Morgan… people were tired of Ava… hanging out at the Q mansion… and the silly lame… 3 lil’ amigos…. Michael and Kiki can sail off in to the sunset… they should go on a long cruise… go to that foreign country for that quickie divorce and set sail…. see ya later it was an intriguing power… Read more »

This was an outstanding performance by all actors. This show is getting very good. Nice to see former OLTL star Kristen Alderson still acting well. The storylines have me hooked back to this show. GH is great and glad ABC didn’t cancel this show. Great performance, keep them coming.

I love the idea of Morgan and Ava hitting it off– just something so deliciously sinful about the whole thing– the older women nabbing the young cub from her daughter, who just happens to be the son of your mob rival— it has great potential. I can see her now manipulating Morgan to reveal Sonny’s secrets or work as a double agent for her. All the seeds are there now that Morgan is so angry at Sonny I can see him working against Sonny with the Jerome’s. Also could see Ava bedding both father and son at the same time… Read more »

It would create wonderful fireworks if Ava did both father and son…using the latter to get info on the father he now hates…then a year from now both learn they were being used and Ava was part of the Jerome mob family…however will Ava change her ways when one of her plots backfires and nearly costs kiki her life…stay tuned for the next exciting episode of General HOTpital!

You are royally screwed up in the head if you find having sex with your mother -in-law, or son-in-law, whichever the case may be, deliciously sinful. Oh, I’m all for “sinful” as it were….it’s the son-in-law part that makes me puke. I don’t care about the age thing either…but, good grief!!!! I have a son-in-law…..just the thought…yuk is right! If it is trash you want, then you should engage in watching porn. There are young children in some households and if GH writers think that this junk will win them ratings, they better think again. ……Something else that bothers me?… Read more »

I respect your opinions, although getting attack personally for mine is always disappointing– I don’t take offense at it, because I know there nothing wrong with my mental health, but thank you for the concern. First off I made my comments before seeing Tuesday show when Morgan and Ava had sex. I was speaking in my post of a hook up after Morgan and Kiki were divorced– so no I was not in favour of a son-in-law having sex with his mother-in-law. I thought there would wait until the divorce to go down that route. But this isn’t REAL life… Read more »

Your opinions are invalidated when: 1) You can’t spell your own name the way you want it spelled. It’s you who determines your own screen name, Einstein. 2) You engage in personal attacks on an actor’s features, for which they have no control. It’s spiteful, low & not legitimate criticism. 3) You don’t know the difference between Mexico and Puerto Rico. Sabrina & her ex are Puerto Ricans. 4) You actually think soap opera writers need to write material appropriate for children. WRONG! Soaps have never been appropriate for kids. The fact that you let them watch inappropriate material is… Read more »

Fabia.. Don’t watch! This show or any with lust, betrayal, sex, lies, murder, theft, arson, mafia, vampires…the list goes on. So, errrrr…all the other things I listed are okay with you…but a young hot male having sex with an older female is amoral? Oh, she’s his mother-in-law? For how long? Two weeks? There was NEVER a maternal bond between Morgan and Ava, let alone Kiki and Ava. This is the stuff good soapy drama is made of…the entire web of mother/daughter/brothers…one mob family against the other…connected through family relationships, sexual relationships…it’s soap drama at its best! If you want nice…there… Read more »

I thought the scenes between Maurice and Bryan were heart-wrenching. They really seem to connect. And Chad always seems to connect with his scene partners. The whole Monday episode was fantastic!

I was watching yesterdays episode after I went to bed & since it was really late I was falling asleep (I always catch up the next day though) When these three came on I sat right up & had to watch…!! great performances especially by Bryan Craig..I know a lot of fans have been bored by Morgan actually me too..but young Mr.Craig really gave his character some real depth with his performance..I think he would be good with Ava even though she is way too old for him but they are both sooo intense…it could really be interesting..

I’ve liked Bryan Craig’s Morgan from the start. And I agree…excellent acting…multi-layered character with lots of angst. Great addition and a change from Michael (whom I adore too).

Some how Morgan has forgotten how he used up $50k of his dads money and another $10K of his brothers money and then who knows how much of Ava’s money (I thought she was broke) he is 19 years old but acts like 16. Don’t get me wrong I like him but he has gotten away with a lot of stuff.

Im so sick of Morgan claiming Carly just threw him away,she did it to protect him because of Sonny getting Micheal shot & everytime she tried to get him to come home HE refused.That was one of the few unselfish things Carly has done & he treats her like crap for it & Micheal treats her like crap to,just for funsies I guess.They raised those kids w/ no dicipline & let them do whatever they wanted(well Carly did, Sonny didnt raise them at all,yet they treat him better than her) & now theyre nothiing but ungrateful brats.Wanna know how NOT… Read more »

I thought all three did some great work!!! I am not loving the Morgan character and do not like what he has become from where he began and of the three he is the weakest performance, but they did a great job! Not looking forward to seeing Morgan and Ava… if she must pik on one of them I would prefer it be Sonny. Having Morgan with Ava is just completely trashing Morgan… or I guess he will become an even more tragic version of his father. Always hoped that Morgan would be more like the good Jax.

Ava is using Morgan. It is part of her master plan & her brother Julian to over take Sonny & his position plus his business dealings. That’s why Ava took Morgan in the first place…

@susanM I also thought it telling… that Ava… when talking with Morgan…. ie: that she as well… has no one…. and that she was recalling… her dark past….. dark self… ie: like Sonny… as she intimated as much to…. so…. it was well done… and she came too… and slapped Morgan.. but… couldn’t resist…. that’s her way of release… and her way with the male species… I’d like to see more Ava and Franco…. I honestly… think… that perhaps… it’s time for Sonny and Carly to have a go at it… “again”… so as not to traverse so fast in… Read more »

Kiki. from the get go…. 1. I have yet to see “one” scene… in which she’s Nice to her mother… Ava… has openly spoken.. it was just the two of them against the world… and Kiki… I’m sorry… but.. I’d slap some sense in to her.. notwithstanding… a little respect. 2. from the onset… fell in love with Michael… and Morgan was left squandering… he loved her… from the start… and Kiki… i never thought… didn’t not love Morgan… till, she met Michael… so… it’s a little kookoo…. that Kiki… had better start acting… otherwise… I actually liked Silas… showing… Read more »

Has anyone noticed, or does anyone agree…that Bryan Craig resembles Eric Roberts? They’d be a great father/son team or Bryan could play Eric’s younger self…should a role for that ever occur.

ABC’s Vicki Dummer & William Burton Among Executive Exits In Disney TV Cuts; Both Oversaw Aspects Of General Hospital

In a major reshuffling of the executive infrastructure at Disney/ABC, several lay-offs were handed-down including to longtime ABC executive Vicki Dummer who most recently was Head of Current Series Programming, ABC Entertainment,

In her position, Dummer oversaw the creative aspects from the network level for General Hospital.  Vicki had been with the company for over 24 years and was a noted longtime fan of the show in interviews she had given during her tenure.

Back in September of 2018, William Burton was given the position of SVP and Head Of Daytime, Sports and Syndicated Development/Production for ABC Entertainment.  He had been in charge of the the business operations for General Hospital at a network level, while Dummer continued to handle the creative.  However today, Burton was also let-go.

The exits come as ABC and Hulu have consolidated original content under Craig Erwich, and 20th Television and Touchstone TV under Karey Burke.

The layoffs are believed to have effected 12 staff members mostly at the executive level.

Deadline broke the news and then updated their story later today.

Just who and what department in the new structuring will take over General Hospital remains to be seen.  We will keep you posted once any additional news or announcements are made.

Emme Rylan On Her Final GH Scenes: “Laying There Emotionless While My Amazing Costars Cried Over My Comatose Body Was One of the Hardest Acting Challenges EVER!”

If you watched Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital, you witnessed an emotional and heartbreaking episode where friends, family, and loved ones had to say their goodbyes to Lulu Spencer (Emme Rylan) before she is transferred to a long-term care facility to be looked after following her brain injuries and surgery which left her in a coma.

This was to mark the last scenes of Emme Rylan who has exited the series after being let-go.  In story, viewers watched as Nikolas (Marcus Coloma), Maxie (Kirsten Storms), Dante (Dominic Zamprogna), Tracy (Jane Elliot) and a grief-stricken Laura (Genie Francis) sat by Lulu’s hospital bedside telling her they will be waiting for her to wake up, as the agonize over the gravity of the situation.

On Wednesday, Rylan took to social media to tell her fans how difficult it was for her to tape those scenes, when she expressed: “Laying there emotionless while my amazing costars cried over my comatose body was one of the hardest acting challenges EVER! They don’t exactly have you practice that in acting school (Thank u to everyone that noticed).”

In response former GH star Ryan Paevey (Ex-Nathan) who also went through a similar on-screen situation when his character was killed-off tweeted back to Em: “I 100% agree and understand, haha.”

The episode gave  Genie Francis a fantastic palette to play and reminded everyone why she is one of the greatest icons of the genre.

So, what did you think of Emme’s statement on trying to get through those difficult scenes as played by her co-stars?  Share your thoughts below.

Daytime Emmys To Remain Virtual For Upcoming 2021 Ceremony

With an uncertain situation of when live events can get back to normal, or as they have been in the past prior to the coronavirus pandemic, The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) announced today that it plans on keeping next year’s Daytime Emmys award show virtual, to allow for the 2022 awards cycle to stay on track.

In fact, all of NATAS’s award ceremonies including: the News and Documentary Emmys, Technology & Engineering Emmys and the Sports Emmys will also remain virtual next year.

The Daytime Emmys became the first major award show to air a virtual presentation that others followed back in late June of this year and aired on CBS.

In a statement, NATAS chairman and CEO Adam Sharp expressed on the organization’s decision:“The current timetables articulated by manufacturers project mass availability of vaccinations for the entire U.S. population by mid-summer 2021, potentially permitting a return to more traditional in-person ceremonies later in the fall. However, we have determined that delaying our 2021 events to possibly allow for a compressed calendar of in-person Emmy ceremonies late in the year would result in unacceptable delays to our awards cycle for 2022. Instead, we have decided to remain “virtual” in the format of our ceremonies for 2021 while relying on a substantially pre-COVID awards calendar. In so doing, we believe we will be best-positioned to return to a full, on-time, traditional schedule of in-person ceremonies in 2022.

The dates currently under consideration for the 48th annual Daytime Emmys which would be via two or three nights of presentations are: a combination of dates from Friday, June 25, Saturday, July 17 and/or Sunday, July 18.

For those entering the competition, the entry deadline is February, 17, 2021 with  the nominations not to come till May or June.

So, what do you think about the Daytime Emmys going virtual again for 2021? Comment below.
