GH Smackdown Morgan Corinthos Vs. Michael Corinthos! Who Should Be Victorious?

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

On Monday’s episode of General Hospital all hell broke loose … yet again!  Centering on the fallout of the multiple revelations at Franco’s gallery opening!

First, Franco (Roger Howarth) is emotionally devastated over the news that Heather (Robin Mattson) and Scott (Kin Shriner) are his biological parents!  Sonny (Maurice Benard) is overcome with hurt and anger that his own flesh and blood, Morgan (Bryan Craig) would bug his business in his vendetta against his father, and is working with Ava (Maura West) and Julian Jerome (William deVry)!  Derek is forced to admit that he is, in fact, Julian Jerome and the man that Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) hasda one-night stand with years ago … and that Sam (Kelly Monaco) is his daughter!  Oh my!

Meanwhile, Michael (Chad Duell) is beyond infuriated with the fact that Morgan would set out to destroy his father and put him, and the family, in danger from the Jeromes!  Morgan continues to explain how betrayed he is by Sonny always choosing him over Michael, and for Michael outright stealing his then-wife, Kiki (Kristen Alderson)! This sets the stage for an explosive fight on the pier, where the brothers finally come to blows!  It is a an all out brawl!  Heated words are exchanged including Michael calling Morgan, “a sniveling, back-stabbing traitor!”  And Morgan telling his brother, “I hate you!”   In the end, Michael ends up in the deep waters of the pier after a final wallop from Morgan!  Can he survive the waters?  Will he join Jason?

There were some great performances in this episode given by the men!  William deVry poignant at the end of the episode telling Sam he is his her father, Roger Howarth dealing with another shock to Franco’s fragile mind with Carly (Laura Wright) by his side, and the Corinthos men: Maurice Benard, Chad Duell and Bryan Craig!

So, who do you want to be the victor in the fight between Morgan and Michael?  Who’s side are you on?  Weigh-in!

Michael can go sleep with the fishes. I hate him and his disgusting hypocrisy and moral outrage over Sonny, the mobster with a heart of gold. #TeamMorgan

Can both Michael and Morgan go sleep with the fishes? HA! I find them both very boring. Chad Duell (Michael) is a great actor, I think; but, he has been “dumbed down” with the ridiculous nuMorgan and Kiki “love triangle” which is very boring to watch unfold.

Couldn’t agree more! They are both spoiled brats. The only storyline that I’m not feeling on GH is Michael/Kiki/Morgan. But I do have an interest in the Morgan/Ava pairing. It’s total trash but strangely intriguing.

Touche’!!!! Neither one moves me much….Can we please just get back to Robert, Anna, Britta, Nikolas, Patrick, Robin, Jerry Jax and of course, Faison and the incomparable Dr. O.??? Although I enjoy Heather, Sam, Silas, and actually don’t even mind Franco, I have had more than enough abstract “sandwiches” and actual mobsters force fed to me this week, thank you very much!!!!!

Im not on Mikes or Morgans side…but what a good episode…Micheal falls in the river and Starr/Kiki/Lauren jumps in after him…i wonder if she pulls him out but its nujason instead…now push Morgan in too…kidding, kidding, kidding,…lol

Mary SF

I had that thought too when she jumped in— that she would think she was grabbing Mikey and out pops nuJason instead– but i guess that would be too absurd even for GH. But then the writer in me kick in, and I think this might be some foreshadowing about Michael’s place in the mob. Sonny lost his right hand man, a son figure in the same river Michael went into. Michael coming out could symbolize a rebirth– sorta what happened to another Michael in the Godfather. That Michael was the good son, the one that was meant to live… Read more »

My sister said something similiar…how Micheal and Morgan could become the next generation of rival mobsters…i wasnt too much into these brothers (i do like Morgan with Ava for now) but i did like their fight scenes at the docks and they are actually starting to grow on me…maybe that’ll continue!

You took the words right out of my mouth. How on earth can he not see his family truly loves him and sent him away for his own protection? After everything that happened to Michael whether directly or indirectly connected to Sonny you would think Morgan would be glad he was not there because it could had been him and not Michael.

Johnny
Guest
Johnny

They don’t act like they love him at all. They say it…but the words are just hollow. Carly is too busy canoodling with whichever psychopah/mobster is her flavor of the month and Sonny’s business, as always, takes precedence over family. Always has always will. If he loved his family so much he would quit the business. He is a greasy hypocritical violent manic murderer and I cannot believe that some viewers actually respond to him as a hero.

It was great all the way around, but I am on Michael’s side. I do understand Morgan’s point, but you don’t people your family in danger because you got your little feelings hurt. Also, he sucker punched Michael like a little boy. Michael is wrong about Kiki, but at least he loves her and didn’t do it on purpose. Everything Morgan does is on purpose, even though he isn’t smart enough or adult enough to understand all the consequences of his actions.

Mary SF

Ahh but you forget when he made this deal with the Jerome’s he had a gun pointed at him. Perhaps I am naive enough to hope Morgan is actually going undercover in order to protect Sonny. Getting in with the Jerome’s, getting them to trust him, and some future moment he gets them back — all in attempt to prove to Sonny he is the more worthy son– the one deserving to one day take over the “business” Either that or he is the biggest brat on the planet– my fingers crossed for option A.

Mary SF, i like that plot twist…Morgan going secretly undercover to protect his father…maybe he’ll take down the Jeromes…

Michael was kicking the ever loving snot out of that little turncoat wuss, Morgan, until Kiki came running out and distracted him. I’m actually hoping that Kiki is in on all of the fun and has been working alongside her mother and Julien all along.

what a great idea… to try “anything” to turn the starr herself… in to some thing…

I’m just not buying in to Kiki and Michael at all.

If your parents sent you away and never saw you
But your brother got to stay home and had it all. I hope
Morgan sticks it to all of them.

Team Michael!!! It was done well… but sorry not into Morgan and Kiki. I also am not loving what is happening to Michael with the Morgan and Kiki stuff. Loved the stuff in the gallery with Julian, Sonny, Ava, Alexis and Sam. Sorry to see Carly with Franco… would like to see her not kick him out but to not cross the line she is about to cross. I understand the chemistry between RH and LW… but wish he were playing someone other than Franco! Read something that says Franco saves Michael… would rather see Franco get pulled under and… Read more »

I am a lonnnnnng time GH fan, and found yesterday’s episode to be one of the BEST I have seen in a long time. The raw emotions exposed and the struggles shared were very poignant, and I found the entire episode riveting, there was not one moment I fastforwarded through. I understand the hurt from both of the Corinthos Boys perspectives, but in a situation like this, no one is really the victor, although betraying your Father like that, while putting the rest of your family and yourself in danger is clearly the wrong way to go, but it is… Read more »

I loved the Sonny/Julian scenes… with Alexis and Sam stunned by the admission that Julian is, well, Julian….. what a way to bring it all out into the open. Amazing tv. I felt bad for Sonny having been betrayed by his son, but I think Julian was relieved to give up his secret.

yahhh!
I love how RC is making the brothers a Cain and Able type story, perhaps the Prodigal Son, whatever I really like the brothers coming to age..

Both the actors were real to life during their fight scene which so so very much more than a physical fight..

GH is full of unforeseen SURPRISES!!
The acting is superb!
The stories a mixed basket of emotions..
GH is great drama and entertainment..
The ”brothers” developing into their manhood as loving family enemies is going to make some high drama stories!!
Key things of GH are being reborn, and I love it all !!!

I’m so sick of Michael and Kiki—their self-righteousness is amusing, indeed. I’m also bored with Sonny, Carly, and Franco. Otherwise, enjoying GH.

Michael has a father. His father is AJ. He is not a greasy disgusting misogynistic hypocritical murdering mobster. Michael should leave Sonny to his OWN children. Dante….the one he shot in the chest…Kristina the one he never acknowledges….and Morgan the one he hates.

Now after clowning you over your spelling I do agree with you. Instead of trying to make Kiki even partly palatable after the whole PP mess they did a complete 180 and ruined Michael’s loveable nature by making him an I love my brother’s fiance/wife and don’t care who doesn’t like it. Alot of what could have been stand out character moments took a backseat to hasty rewrites and quickly recast already casted members of the cast. Carly should not be fawning over Franco just because of the Todd chemistry. Michael should not be losing all his marbles just because… Read more »

thank God, GH has Julian and Ava…. for the Sonny/Jerome tail. I think Sonny way over does it…. “blah, blah, blah… no one messes with my family…” it’s kinda hard to swallow when the actor himself… doesn’t have much chemistry with. ’nuff said… didn’t Olivia look HOT… in her black “swimwear” or was it Victoria Secrets Lingerie… i thought it was kinda lame that Julian and Ava were hard pressed to take the position, that Julian needs to be kept alive… to keep Daniel Edward alive. lord knows thats enuf reason… but.. it seemed like a diss and kowtow.. on… Read more »

i totally left out Ava… she was much more humane… taking the high road… and ably supported her brother… I liked that… these two… as brother and sister… could be the tour de force as for Morgan… this was a quick find out… i thought the intrigue would be much longer… Morgan … in cahoots with ava and julian…. this would have been more intriguing… to watch Morgan “develop” ulterior motives… questionable ethics… is he really the bad seed… ie; his gambling… feeding his insecurities… testing his maturity… with and against the jeromes and his familial ties… it could have… Read more »

I get what you all are saying, but if you were an OLTL fan you will take the 3 transplants anyway we can get them. Do I miss them? Yes! Did K.A. Win an Emmy yes! But things have changed. So let’s tweak a few things. Start calling Kiki .. Lauren. The chemistry is there, give them a viable story. Morgan needs his butt kicked. He is spoiled and entitled and immature. RH needs to put some of his quick witted Todd into his life. It’s difficult, Todd was an amazing character. But Franco is slowly winning me over. This… Read more »

DAYS -vs- GH

Brothers driven….

DAYS Father Eric & Brady…. No comparison.. on par excellence… this is serious drama… and culminated in riveting must see television…. in SALEM.

GH for juvenile… yet… if given good writing… I still don’t know… it’s not that interesting… Michael needs to be with AJ and ELQ… this would make him more bearable… and alas.. i’ll turn a blind eye to how uninteresting Michael and Kiki ARE

I think the actor who portrays Morgan… has potential

I’m on Morgan’s side for this one. He was sent away to protect him, but at the end of the day Kristina as well as Michael got to stay with their family. It sure didn’t help that Michael allowed himself to fall for Kiki (which I’m still not buying). While Michael shouldn’t always put Morgan before himself, in a situation like that he shouldn’t of gotten with Kiki until Morgan had dealt with his emotions and moved on, nor should Sonny have announced Morgan’s lies like he did. With how it was done it did look like Sonny picked Michael… Read more »

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Tells Nina He Knows Exactly Who He Is; Jason & Carly’s Wedding Comes to an Explosive Conclusion

Is it game over for Nina Reeves (Cynthia Watros), or does she have another trick up her sleeve to keep Sonny (Maurice Benard) to herself, now that he remembers who is he?

On Friday’s dramatic episode of General Hospital, “Mike” looks to be gone and Sonny has come back in full force complete with a super hero moment escaping from being trapped underneath the beam that had fallen on top of him inside the burning Tan-O.  Sonny makes his escape after inhaling so many fumes, that he needs medical attention and is rushed to the hospital with Nina going along with him.

Inside the hospital, once given the all clear, Phyllis (Joyce Guy) tells Nina, “Mike” is asking for her, while Jax (Ingo Rademacher) pleads to let the doctors handle this situation.  But, Nina heads inside the room to see Sonny.  Then came the dramatic moment that many GH fans were waiting for.  As Nina calls him “Mike, he rips off his oxygen mask in anger and says that his name is Sonny and he remembers everything!  Nina does a pivot, knowing she is caught, and says the name may have have been a fake one, but they cannot deny the way they feel about each other.  She tells him that she honestly loves him and Sonny defiantly tells her NOT to say that.  Meanwhile Jax confirms to Phyllis that Nina always knew that “Mike” was Sonny and hid it from her and Sonny for months!

Back in Port Charles, Jason (Steve Burton) and Carly’s (Laura Wright) wedding comes to a conclusion! No one interrupts the wedding and the two look lovingly at each other to start their new life together as husband and wife.

Courtesy/ABC

After the ceremony, mobsters Ms. Wu, Vincent, and Charles have a moment where she says “be wary of tomorrow”.  Jason and Carly have a moment alone where Jason looks truly in love with Carly now and all of those feelings he had buried for years have now come back to the surface. How will this all play out when Sonny comes back into everyone’s lives, alive and well?

After the reception had ended, Jason and Carly get in their limo to drive away as newlyweds.  She asks Jason what Ms. Wu whispered in his ear at the reception, he says she confirmed something he already knew.  Meanwhile, Vincent and Charles get in their limo.  Charles shares the world is about to be a better place without Carly and Jason in it.

Next, Carly tells the driver to start the car, and we see a bomb device under a car and the chapel blown up as the show comes to its conclusion.

Our bet is that the Novak/Buscema car was blown to bits, not Jarly’s limo thanks to a Wu double-cross, but we shall see next week! Great performances from Maurice Benard, Cynthia Watros, Laura Wright, and Steve Burton throughout this one.

So, what did you think of the moment Sonny told Nina he remembered who he is? What did you think of Jason and Carly’s nuptials? What do you think will happen next? Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Remembers Carly Just as She Is Marrying Jason

After nine months of being “Mike”, Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) had a major breakthrough as his memory is all coming back to him now (as the Celine Dion song says), and in the process the Tan-O has burned to the ground, signaling the the probable end to the Nixon Falls arc of the story.

As the story picked-up on Thursday, Nina’s (Cynthia Watros) plot to keep Sonny for herself and away from Carly majorly backfired on her.  Not only does Phyllis (Joyce Guy) now know that Nina lied about “Mike’s” identify the entire time, but Peter August (Wes Ramsey) is running wild and free heading back to Port Charles to claim his baby and Maxie (Kirsten Storms), after setting fire to the building.

Courtesy/ABC

Since “Mike” ran in to save Nina and got hit by a beam in the process, he is alone in the burning Tan-O enveloped by flames, but that triggers the beginning of his memory coming back.

Meanwhile, back in Port Charles, Jason (Steve Burton) and Carly (Laura Wright) are at their wedding, with the five family mob bosses present with a plot of their own and everyone wondering if Jarly will say “I do'”.    The two light a candle together for those loved ones no longer with them … ah, Sonny!

Back the burning Tan-O, Sonny is visited by the vision of the real Mike (Max Gail) who tells him it’s time for him to go home now.  A conflicted Sonny tells Mike he is very happy in Nixon Falls with Nina, but Mike tells him he needs to know his past in order to move forward.  When Sonny has flashes of his violent past it frightens him, and he says whatever family he has is better off without him in their lives.

Jax (Ingo Rademacher) tries to text Maxie while still in Nixon Falls with Nina to watch out for Peter, but she is attending and managing Carly and Sonny’s wedding, so she doesn’t pick up the phone!

Inside the Tan-O, Sonny sees a vision of woman, who when she turns and faces him is Carly. While Sonny is lying on the floor and is engulfed in flames and trapped, Mike tells Sonny he can die as “Mike” or live on as the man he truly is, Sonny.  It is then Sonny calls out “Carly!”

So, what did you think of the episode? Do you think Carly and Jason will get married? Will Sonny tells Nina he remembers? What will Nina’s next move be? Are you glad Sonny seems to have his memory back? The episode featured another strong performance by Maurice Benard.  Share your thoughts below.

Briana Nicole Henry on Her Decision to Exit GH: “I Decided It Was Time to Move On”

On Monday’s episode, GH viewers learned that Jordan will need to start dialysis and treatment at a specialty clinic in Albany from kidney damage and suffering renal failure.  But on Tuesday, fans of the ABC daytime drama series learned that Briana Nicole Henry has left the show, all her decision, according to her post on Instagram.

A Daytime Emmy nominee this year in the Outstanding Supporting Actress category, Briana shared the news on her departure expressing: “I suppose it is that time isn’t it. As I celebrated my third year of being on General Hospital yesterday, I also watched my last episode as Jordan Ashford air. People kept asking me how it felt to have ended my time on the show, and it wasn’t until yesterday that it really sank in, as I watched Jordan’s goodbye to her family and knew the tears you saw were real tears between not just colleagues but friends. I decided it was time for me to move on from @generalhospitalabc and I got nothing but love and support from everyone involved. Not to mention was given the most beautiful send of that left me quite literally shaken.  I’d like to take a second to thank every single person in my @generalhospitalabc family that helped me make GH my home over the last three years, especially @fvalentinigh . From the crew, to my cast mates to our security guard Emma, there were multiple people on any given day that brought such a smile and warmth to my heart.”

Briana finished her post with, “When I started GH it was my first opportunity as a series regular, and to get the opportunity to throw myself into Jordan for the last three years and work with some truly incredible actors has been an honor. Thanks for holding space for me to grow. I am a better actor because of the time I spent within those walls and will forever be grateful for the way the show nurtured and challenged my ability.  To the fans, it took me a while to win you over, but once you saw my heart you made me feel so much love. I hope I brought something unique and honest to your beloved character of Jordan Ashford, she’s one helluva woman. Until next time loves 👋🏾.”

This will be the second Jordan to exit General Hospital.  The role was originated by Vinessa Antoine, and Henry took it over for the last three years.

So, sad to see Briana leave GH? Should the show recast? Comment below.
