So you think General Hospital’s Sonny and Brenda can finally seal the deal and make it to the altar and say their, “I do’s?”  Well, according to the man who pulls the creative strings in Port Charles, head writer, Bob Guza, viewers are in for some unexpected twist and turns, as he revealed to TV Guide.

Guza assures TVG that vows will be exchanged.  But according to his conversation that doesn’t mean those looming threats won’t get carried out.  The scribe explained, “Carly has the ammunition and the wherewithal to blow Brenda out of the water and she will use it. She will blow the secret, but not in the way you expect her to. And the Balkan is also going to make his move to grab Brenda. Something very, very big is going to occur that will turn our canvas upside down. What you think will happen is not what you get.”

Turns out the wedding and the events surrounding it, and the aftermath, will play out for six days, starting on the February 18th episode in which Guza says will be “epic”.   In addition, Guza teases that the return of “Franco” played by Oscar Nominee, James Franco could figure into this story.  On-Air On-Soaps also heard that Franco was on the set of GH today taping scenes for his upcoming appearances to air the Friday before the Academy Awards and the Monday following.

So, what do you think will happen at the wedding, and post-wedding.  Will the fated couple even make it to the honeymoon?  Stay tuned.

Wow. Not about a word about the characters who actually work inside the hospital — as in General Hospital. I know that Luke and Laura’s escapades took us out of the hospital, but now the show is turned into a bargain basement version of Goodfellas and the Hospital is a third rate prop. Shame on Guza for ruining what was once an American institution.

This show is getting so contrived. I don’t think that Sonny will get married, unles there is a fake minister or something. Carly maybe will not tell Sonny about Brenda and Dante. It’s enough already with the Balkan. I hope he will be exposed shortly. Also , Lisa is too darn conniving and dragging the new doctor from her past to join her plot of wooing Robin and away from Patrick. I don’t want to see Rebecca Herbst leave, either. What the heck is happening over at GH?

Im excited as well! mostly to get this bulkin storry over and on to the breakout stories instead of the brenda show. Also Ithink these people that think this is no longer about general hospital, you really cant have a whole show about a hospital. Times change and I think its a real good mix.
The Mob/goodfellas in my opinion make things interesting and fun to watch.
I think and from what I read the limo blows up so the question is, whos in it? I also herd that Brendas character goes missing for a while (think Venessa taking time off is what I heard, not sure if true) so everyones gonna think its her. So maybe Sonny goes to Claire, she ends up pregnant (how many kids does this guy need!) Brenda runs to Jax.
I also think that maybe Sean is gonna turn out to be a nice guy. I also heard that Jason is a no show for the wedding, thank god! It should have been Edward to walk her down the isle in the first place.
Shibion I think is working for Interpool but do beleive that her sister really was taken. Also heard rumors that she turns out to be Jax sister, I was hoping that it was gonna be Abby.
With 5 days of the wedding stuff, I hope that its at least exciting and that the whole cast is involved rather than just Sonnny, Brenda Jason Jax and Carly.
Wheres Sam? She helps Jason all the time especially since they got back together, so out of character. Wheres spinelli he should be helping on this as well. GH is good at haveing these type of things happen where the whole cast is involved so I hope that is the case here.
Im just waitng to this to get over and get back to the way these people were before Brendas return. PLEASE!

GENERAL HOSPITAL Flips The Switch In Sonny-Centric Episode Featuring Standout Performances

On Monday, in honor of Maurice Benard’s 25th anniversary as Sonny Corinthos on ABC’s General Hospital, the daytime drama took a look at what life would have been like if Sonny had not fallen in to a life of crime and in the mob. The standalone episode featured the return of Dominic Zamprogna as Sonny’s eldest son, Dante.

But in the twist on ‘soap-reality’, Dante was now the ascending mobster in Port Charles, and Sonny was a sergeant in the police department in Brooklyn married to Olivia Falconeri (Lisa LoCicero).  It all beings when Sonny remembers being 18-years-old and that fatal day when he shot Vincent Marino.  The young Sonny is played by Maurice’s real-life son.   Sonny then dreams of what would have happened to him if he never pulled that trigger.

Sonny is now a by-the-book cop, who visits his son Dante along with Olivia.  When they get there, Dante is now married to Sam (Kelly Monaco), who is his trophy wife.  Dante is working for the Jerome family – enter Julian (William deVry) and Ava (Maura WestO – and we quickly learn that “Jason Smith” is the hit man who works for them.  And, wouldn’t you know?  Seems like Ava and Jason have a “thing” going on … sealed with a kiss.

Now disturbed by his son’s life of crime, Sonny goes to the PCPD to talk to the police commissioner, who is now Anna Devane (Finola Hughes).  In the story, Anna is very inward, depressed, and more.  We find out that her daughter, Robin died of complications from AIDS in the 90’s, in which Anna has never recovered from.   We also learn at the PCPD that Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) is the current District Attorney.

Carly (Laura Wright) enters the scene, and she is still married to A. J. Quartermaine.  Sonny takes a liking to her and vice-versa.  We later learn that Jordan (Briana Nicole Henry) is back working for the DEA and Dante has gone undercover to bring down the Jeromes; so the entire territory is under his control.

Dante and Sam have a major falling out, as he is excited by the power he will have once he rids the Jeromes out of his business.  Sam has had it. She doesn’t want to dress like this, be his trophy wife, or have this kind of life. When Dante walks out, an upset Sam is alone with Jason, and the two connect.

In the conclusion of the episode, Dante shoots Jason on the pier, a scene which Sonny walks in on.  Sonny and his son struggle for the gun, and once again Dante is shot, just like in the original version of the story years ago, but with the twist of the struggle.  Olivia comes running onto the pier and sees Dante shot, and yells at Sonny the signature line, “You shot your own son!”

At the end of the dream, Sony goes back to the mark in time where he decides whether or not to pull the trigger on Marino with Mike (Max Gail) and him looking on at the young version of himself.  In the end, Sonny still pulls the trigger.

The episode featured stand-out performances by: Dominic Zamprogna (how great was it to see him again, and to see him play Dante’s dark side), Maurice Benard (who illustrated the other side of Sonny, more reserved, and delivered a heartbreaking speech as Sonny to Dante about his life being abused, and the choices he made), Kelly Monaco (who showed a woman unhappy with the outward shell she had created and been a part of), and Finola Hughes,who gave us a different look  at what life would have been like for Anna had Robin been taken from her years ago.  Additionally, it was nice to see the entire cast deliver in support of making this episode work in the ‘flip the switch’ sequence of events.
