General Hospital fans circle Monday, August 27th as a not-to-be missed episode of the ABC soap!  According to a very intriguing and exciting tweet this afternoon from series executive producer, Frank Valentini something big is happening on Monday’s air show!

Valentini tweeted, “The air show on Monday is not to be missed! We’ve been keeping a huge surprise under wraps.”

So what could the surprise be soapers?  What we do know is  Anna has been searching for Robin, could she stumble upon the mystery patient? And Jerry Jacks is about to reveal his deadly plot for Port Charles!

Whatever the surprise is , or who it is, we can’t wait to see how Valentini and Carlivati deliver it to GH fans everywhere! Weigh-in!

I think it is Victor! I’m excited no matter what I is. Today’s episode was fantastic. I am loving that Olivia is a seer. I hope eventually she can accept it and use her powers for good…..like helping Dante solve crimes….find missing children…..etc.

I don’t think it is Victor. It looked like a woman. TSJ is filming a movie in Germany now according to his web site.

PLEASE tell me Victor is coming back!!!

Christy

i can’t think they’d bring Victor into all this… not now. This is going to be Jerry Jax, Jasper Jax, Ewen (probably a Jax too), and a frantic chase of who / what is happening to Port Charles peoples… and their water! And the Robin/Anna/Luke stuff…

I think all the guys with their shirts off today was like – who was in the shower and getting any of the poisoned water on them?

but someday, it would be nice to get Victor back.

Debi

I think we will get Victor back. Just not now. I have a feeling its an old GH character. Em?? Bobbie??

How do u know it’s Rebecca Budig? Greedlee was my least favorite character on my once fav soap AMC…looks like I am not the only one from the other posts..GH has been sooo good under Frank & Ron’s direction please don’t mess up with her…

That’s cause is not the big surprise is the orgianal Maxie is back as of September 5 or 6. So that is the huge surprise. Victor might be next year during May sweeps. But i blief is Maxie.

It didn’t look like robin. But it was definitely a girl.

I think we will know the identity of the person who is pulling Jerry’s strings.

The only big news that would make me happy would be that OLTL is coming back. Otherwise…don’t care. I am glad for the GH fans….but us OLTL & AMC still suffer (:!!

Christy
Christy

mmm… yes, I suffer every time I get to see Todd Manning on GH!

😀

you don’t what your missing girl! I’ll always miss OLTL (apparently) but I love that I can get a TM fix on GH now. Todd & Starr & John McBain are all GH stars now! And sometimes Blair or Tea comes for a visit. I’ll take what I can get!

susan M.

I agree with Christy !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I still miss OLTL a lot also!!!!!

Karen

I tried watching GH a few times…very hard when you don’t know any of the storylines. I would only be able to watch GH on soapnet…and we all know that is ending soon.I’m happy that all the former OLTL viewers are getting something from GH now.

Didjanoit
Didjanoit

As a GH fan before the merger, the only big news that would make me happy is also that OLTL is coming back! I miss GH. I lost my favorite show and AMC too. The problem is, that even though I watched OLTL in the past, I would never watch it again if it came back on the air. There’s been too much animosity created for me by the merger attempt, and yes, even by some fans demanding more and more OLTL on General Hospital.

I can’t wait. I wonder if it’s Robin.

Gamblerchick
Gamblerchick

I think it’s all of them, the past characters . Are being captive when I think about, it if Jerry has something to do with it. HE HAS TO BE WORKING, FOR SOMEONE ELSE FROM THE PAST. IF YOU REALLY THINK, WHO WOULD YOU THINK? FASION . He’s the number 1, all time villain of the whole town. Of who knows everyone’s weakness, their kids. And he’s the most obvious choice. LUKE: LUCKY. For instance. JERRY AND FASION: they both could have , ROBIN, ALAN, HOPE, LISA, JUSTICE, EMILY ZANDER, and DUKE. I WOULD LOVE LOVE LOVE, TO WATCH THEM ALL AGAIN EXPECT LISA.

maddiehayes

I hope they are thinking along these lines, this is what would get us lapsed viewers to come back, great villains, great characters, great adventures! And please, some ROMANCE!!!

Sorry meant lucy coe lol

But did’t we see dark hair?? Maybe it is Anna’s twin sister

Lucky

I hope it’s not Brenda from the old GH days. Her role always was recycled every time she re-appeared on the show. We know Robin’s alive, so it’s got to be someone else. Dark hair – maybe Gigi from OLTL! If so, Rex will find her-

I’m really looking forward to it.

I don’t think whoever the mystery patient is is the surprise. I paused the preview and I could see that it kinda does look like Lucy, but I don’t think it’s her. I think maybe it’s Anna’s twin sister Alex.

since a small group of us has been watching GH, with a very different view then others, I’m not surprised about any surprise.

I don’t think it has anything to do with the mystery patient; but more we will find out who is Jerry working for…

Personally, it almost doesn’t matter what or who it will be! The show has been fantastic since Frank and Ron took over!!! I love the fact that I can’t wait for the next episode every day! It’s like the old soap promos where you just had to “tune in tomorrow”!!! Love my GH! Started watching when I was 8 years old, that was 35 yrs ago…….and will watch for another 35 if given the chance!!!

oh mayba Robin clones

Thanks Michael for all you do for the soaps. Can’t wait till Monday’s episode. Friday’s left my husband and I on the edge of our seats. That’s the way soap opera’s were meant to be.

I hope it’s someone worth waiting for! Someone is talking to Jerry.

RUMORS fly you all will have to wait..48 hours of hell until we know ROBIN IS ALIVE.

Alley
Alley

I’ll play. The woman locked in the room is Brenda. Or maybe, Heather contacts Allison Perkins (OLTL) and its revealed that Victor and Robin are being held by the same person. Or, Anna comes face to face with Duke, or Faison. Or, the mastermind behind the water poisoning is Helena Cassidine.

I think that covers all the rumors I’ve heard. Which one will it be? Or will it be something else…

maddiehayes
maddiehayes

Okay, GH has got me interested again, guess I’m gonna have to watch on Monday, LOL, it better not be Greenlee (barf), although I wouldn’t mind if it’s Dr. David Hayward from AMC! Really hoping for Robert, Robin, or Natalie.

MBmomof3

My thoughts exactly on all points.

Rachel Cole
Rachel Cole

PLEASE don’t let it be any “back from the dead” types. If we SAW them die or dead onscreen……leave em that way.

Robbyrob
Robbyrob

Sorry Rachel,

When JFP and Guza killed off such legacy and loved characters such as Alan Q, Emily Q, Zander, Georgie, Rick Webber…I stopped watching GH. I would love for this surprise to be any character that ‘perished’ at the hands of the previous regime. I would also love it to be Lucy Coe…I almost choked when Kate mentioned Lucy and Erick Kane to Todd the other day! If you want realism with your soaps, you should move on. I want to escape from reality. If that means buying into some characters that were killed off on-screen returning…I’m all for it! If Valentini is able to pull off such a surprise with the internet so present with spoilers…he’s really good and cares about wanting those old soap surprises back. I love it that he and Ron are on Twitter. None of the other soap bosses are.

Robbyrob
Robbyrob

Oops…I mean’t Erica Kane 🙂

Debi

I am thinking Bobbie or Emily. Most likely Emily since Bobbie hasn’t ‘officially’ been named as missing.

Sharon B.
Sharon B.

Can’t wait to see, should be great! Hope it is revealing where Victor is and the Allison Perkins will be there also!! She is good at playing a psycho person.
Love GH now more than ever. Great work by everyone involved behind the scenes and also the actors in the scenes. If you have not been watching GH now would be a very good time to start watching.

Jared

I am really hoping that little Hope will turn up alive somewhere.

PLEASE keep putting Sam and McBain together. I haven’t seen this much chemistry between 2 people since Luke and Laura. They make love to each other with their eyes! Can’t wait to see these 2 together. Ever since you took over as executive producer the show is GREAT! The only problem is the best actors and charactors I love the most are rats and end up being written out. Heather and Jerry Jaks are the best actors.You love to hate them. Please figure out a way to keep Jerry on and bring Heather back! Noone plays a nut better then her. Keep up the good work, and don’t forget to get SAM and MCBAIN TOGETHER!!!!!!!!

MBmomof3
MBmomof3

Sorry, but I couldn’t DISAGREE more. Can’t stand John with Sam. Makes me dislike both characters immensely. Used to like McBain and was neutral on Sam. Their constantly being in each other’s orbit is annoying and OTT. Enough of these two please.

MCBAMJASAM

I AGRRE WITH YOU….

THEY ARE FORCED….

FV…..MADE ME STOP WATCHING,,,,I DONT CARE HOW
MUCH THEY CHANGE THE MOB STUFFF

STEVE BURTON PLEASE STAY..

TS

Nope they belong together.. I can’t agree more with Danny! Have not seen a couple with chemistry on soaps in a very long time… . Both good actors and doing a great job… Lets just keep it on screen though.. if either of the actors are in relationships.. lol

susan M.
susan M.

I don’t care for John with Sam……..I still prefer Natalie !!!!!! Hopefully they will resolve their problems…………I still like John but, not with Sam…….

Christine
Christine

I actually AGREE with you, Danny, and I remember the IMMENSE chemistry that Michael Easton and Kelly Monaco had on PORT CHARLES – this after she was someone else’s girl (Jack).

However, I heard rumblings that people do not like them together – they want her with Jason. I can see both sides, but with Sam sharing a baby with Jason, they really should be together. I am just not sold that they are some great love story. It is disheartening when I heard about how much Steve Burton and Rebecca Herbst wanted to be together on the show but the producers then would have none of it and kind of forced Sam back into Jason’s arms. This was after Sam watched Elizabeth’s son get kidnapped in the park and not say anything. I mean they really made Sam unlikeable, but something happened and they shifted gears and put her back with Jason. Probably has something to do with the “focus groups” they always talk about.

I agree so much on Jerry and Heather. Two amazing actors you truly love to hate. Sebastian Roche has been such a great Jerry recast compared to the original and Robin Mattson is just pure gold – a real scene stealer.

MBmomof3
MBmomof3

Love Jerry & Heather also. Love to hate them and they are so fun to watch. Loving Todd too.

TS
TS

Natalie is gone and she is not coming back… everyone needs to just get on the Sam and McBain wagon!! They will make beautiful children… and Tea can keep Sam and Jason’s baby for a 10 years. She is a good mother and there is not a lot of drama going on in her life right now. The child will be more functional vs disfuctional for hiis early life!! Jason is leaving the show anyway….

Erick
Erick

Surprised that only one other person suspected it, but the first brunette I thought of (besides Robin) was Brenda. It would make sense for Jerry to go after her, messing with Sonny and Jax again. GH has been getting everyone back, I’m sure it wouldn’t be hard to twist Vanessa Marcil’s arm to come back for a couple of months. (And Anna, since she and Brenda never had scenes together, even though Robin & Brenda were BFFs, wouldn’t recognize her!)

Christine
Christine

Brenda was some international model so I would think Anna would recognize Brenda if she saw her. I don’t think it is her though. I really believe the “surprise” is the person pulling Jerry’s strings.

Holly
Holly

I never liked Brenda, so I didn’t want to admit it, but I think it might be her as well. Vanessa Marcil also tweeted a pic of herself soon after Valentini’s tweet that said “Got Brenda?”

i just want OLTL to be brought back….i now watch gh with some of the folks from OLTL, but i want the show back….i also miss AMC…abc still sucks & i will still boycott abc daytime programming except for GH

But isn’t the actor that plays him (name escapes me right now) on DAYS or B&B or something? I don’t think it is him.

Robbyrob

Christine,

Ian Buchanan was let go from Days months ago. Days tapes 3 months in advance so it sooooooooooo could be Duke! If that’s true, what a great surprise. For Anna, especially in her relationship with Luke. For Robin, when she is found alive! Imagine Sonny meeting Duke Lavery! I hate the mob stuff but I so would love it if Duke was brought back. His character was written much more to be just any old mobster….even though that’s what got him ‘killed’ off when Ian left the show. When Jonathan Paget came on as Duke with plastic surgery, he was good and I was loving his chemistry with Anna…they killed him off again. Paget can be explained to be a phony. No loss there.

Liz

I can’t wait until Monday! Thank you FV for making GH appointment tv once again. I don’t even want to guess what the surprise is, I am glad not to know & love being surprised.

Agree Liz! I cannot wait for GH every day. I don’t want to know the surprises in advance either. I LOVE IT.

I read on the soap digest book cover in target today that the character of Bobbie Spencer , well she was fired from GH & that it was a big secret… Hmmm!!! I don’t know about that ??????????? If it is true or not…..Did you catch Gh on Fri. Before Jerry Jaxs came on the t.v. The chew was on for a second…Why would they put that crap on….

Christine
Christine

susan M., its ABC. They will do whatever they can to force feed that stupid show down our throats even though we keep saying how much we detest it. I’m surprised they haven’t decided to do some kind of subliminal messages during GH to make us watch that drivel … but maybe they are doing that for Katie. Ha! Ha! Won’t work on me.

susan M.

I don’t like how they are alway’s forcing that cooking show down our thorats every chance they get…………They must be desprite for viewers !!!!!! Because it’s such a LOSER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And no one ever will watch that bulloney!!!!

I JUST LOVE TO SEE AGAIN, NATILIE , AND BO, AND CLINT, AND VICKI FROM OLTL. AND BRING BACK BABY HOPE, FOR STARR. I REALLY WANT JOHN M AND SAM, TOGETHER THEY ARE HOTT TOGETHER, BUT IF WE BRING ON NATILIE ON. THEN WE COULD SEE, CATFIGHTS BETWEEN THE 2 GIRLS, TO MAKE JOHN TO MAKE UP HIS MIND. The mystery patient: ROBIN!!!!!! SHE HAS TO COME BACK FOR GOOD. I MISS HER. The past characters that have to come back, 1.) ALAN 1.) EMILY 2.) BRENDA 3.) NICOLAS 4.) LUCY 5.) KEVIN 6.) ZANDER. I THINK I KNOW, WHO’S REALLY BEHIND THIS, WHOLE THING: ALL OF THE VILLIANS: LISA, HELENA, FASION, DUKE. JERRY, HEATHER. AND EVEN THE VILLIANS, IN THE PAST: MANNY.

aria

loving GH its getting good again, those horrible flashbacks are down, and shown now only when needed, the oltl characters are finally fitting in better, and jerry jax is one hell of a villian, this is must see tv.

Helena & Cesar Faison. The person is directly connected to either Anna or Luke. All of your guesses are off.

Very good guesses !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Faison is from Anna’s past from her WSB day’s…………..

Holly

No one ever said that the surprise was an arrival. The surprise could be storyline based, like someone’s related to someone else, or someone dies, or something everyone thought to be true isn’t. I’m not convinced that the surprise is that someone is returning.

GH is still on the air. Sheesh…some people cannot just be happy about that. Complain, complain, complain. If the shoe was on the foot, and GH was canceled, I would have loved to have some GH people on the other ABC soap…be it OLTL or AMC. If you have that many complaints, please move on. Your getting yourself all worked up and its tiring for fans like me who have stuck by GH through the great times (Wendy Riche) to the dismal times (JFP). With budgets the way the are and soaps in peril, Ron and Frank are doing great.

I agree with your comments on 8/27 at 6:44a.m. I wish Anna would find Robin already…………At the clinic where Anna was today(Mon.) it wasn’t Robin she found..Then you see the woman that is in charge of the clinic talking to someone and it is Duke Lavery….What has he to do w/everything???? Why does he have Robin??? Anna & Duke where in love years ago..What does he have against Anna or is it Robert scorpio he has this vendetta with ….

Love that Elizabeth switched the sound off when The Chew came on! Also did you catch that the gift box Tracy gave Joe was from Wyndham’s, the department store that Luke and Laura got locked in years ago. And the mention of Skye! Great writing happening for smart viewers.

I noticed the gift box was from Wyndams too. I loved that. Also loved Jerry asking if he was interrupting their soaps. Loving GH, even if I’m not drinking the McBam Kool-aid. I can live through that until John comes to his senses and Sam finds her own man. John is a rebound.

Also loved Kate’s references to Lucy Coe, Erica Kane and Blair Cramer. Would love to see Lucy or Blair, Erica – not so much. sorry.

The Chew just seeing it for that short time made me annoyed to see it on Gh of all places….That cooking show belongs under a rock & never to be found again….I don’t like cooking shows & I never ever watched those kind of programs…

General Hospital

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.

Courtesy/ABC

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!”

CourtesyABC

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.

So, what did you think of the Sonny-centric episode? Who was your favorite in it?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
