GH’s John J. York On If Cody Turns Out to Be Mac’s Son: “It Would Certainly Change Things, and Would That Be a Good Thing or a Bad Thing for His Family?”

Photos: ABC

From the looks of it, Mac Scorpio (John J. York) is certainly questioning whether it could just be possible that he is the bio-dad of Cody Bell (Josh Kelly).

Mac was not-to-pleased to learn that Cody was supposedly the biological son of Leopold Taub and the late Dominque Stanton.  After all, Mac was romantically linked to Dominique while she was in a loveless marriage to Taub.   Back in the day, after all the turmoil that Dominique endured including being committed to Shadybrook, thanks to Taub, she was reunited with Mac only things went south when Holly Sutton (Emma Samms) was around.

Clearly, Cody arriving in Port Charles has a lot to do with figuring out his parentage, especially after he has already had an altercation with Scott (Kin Shriner).  In the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, John J. York weighs-in on what would happen if it turns out Cody is Mac’s son.

York expressed: “It’s like a puzzle that he’s putting together in his mind, thinking about what his own relationship with Dominique was, thinking about what a bad guy Leopold was.”

John also added, “Mac has a lot of questions.  At this point, he doesn’t know anything for sure.  But if it was true, it would certainly change things – and would that be a good thing or a bad thing for his family? Mac Just doesn’t know.”

So, do you think Mac is Cody’s real father given the timeline?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

Since they’re clearly trying to force Cody down our throats whether we like him or not… and by this Devil’s reading, most of us do not…. then Port Charles #1 rule of course is… “mysterious newbie HAS to be related to a core character somehow”. Well, we know Dominique is his mom (assuming he’s telling the truth about anything) and that Katherine Bell was his adopted sister. But they’re both dead, and neither is likely to return. Nor is Leopold Taub… whom Cody assumes is his father. So we need a living relative. Technically Serena is his half sister, but… Read more »

You have my blessing here, my friend. The character is not only pointless but seems incapable of any facial expressions beyond staring and/or being totally pleased with himself. Poor Britt/Kelly, trying to bring some energy to their deadening scenes.

I tend to agree.what bothers me is this going back and forth, which we’ve seen a million times, with the girl falling for the guys charms in the end anyway. That’s what I feel is happening with these two, with all the sparring, he’ll win her over.

I feel the opposite. I don’t understand how Kelly is being directed for those scenes. It’s a time-honored tradition that in that sort of Sam-and-Diane style bantering/bickering there is a lightness under all the cutting remarks that she is not providing. I think Kelly is fantastic in general but find her off-putting in these scenes while Josh seems like he’s trying too hard, if that makes sense. They haven’t found their balance yet, in my opinion.

Violet & Sonni.., I think we’re all finding the story direction inconsistent. First, I thought Cody was another spawn of Faison. Then I thought he was manipulating Britt for some unknown nefarious purpose. Now he might be Mac’s son? Frankly, I’ve lost interest in all the possibilities.

The only way a good story can come from it__
If Cody is Faison’s son and that would get dr O in a twitch and Britt would have a brother..
Faison was an awesome character and missed, he brought the thrill and drama…. If Cody is lackluster Mac’s son = a sleeper.

Hi Su, the fist time he was so inquisitive with Britt got me wondering if he was indeed, Faison’s son, otherwise why all the interest and then questions about Peter. Where there’s smoke, there’s fire, right?

Was this actor brought in to fill the void Steve Burton left. If so,it is failing. Why did we need another “new character”? Why couldn’t ABC use the money and recast Lucky or bring back Dr. Steven Webber?

What’s the point of this character. Still dont care for the character even if he is related to the Scorpios.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Diane Poised to Be Attacked by the ‘Hook’; Elizabeth Knew Finn’s Late Wife, Reiko?

On Friday’s cliffhanger of General Hospital, Diane Miller (Carolyn Hennesy) looks to be the next victim of the mysterious ‘hook’.  We won’t know till Monday how it plays out, but things are not looking good for the legal eagle in a preview for the airshow.

In story, Diane dropped by the garage that Brando worked at, looking for Sasha (Sofia Mattson).  At first, she bumps into Sonny (Maurice Benard) who is not pleased with Diane for trying to take him down on the witness stand during Nina’s hearing.  She shares she was helping her clients Michael and Willow as best she could.  Sonny says it was personal for him and he can’t forget what happened.

Next, Diane tells Sasha that she’s serving as her interim lawyer since Martin is unavailable and is there to discuss her guardianship. Sasha is scared that she’ll wind up behind bars now that Brando is gone.  Diane assures Sasha she will file a continuance to keep the process going to keep her out of jail. Diane asks where the guardianship papers may be, and Sasha tells her to check Brando’s office.

Dex (Evan Hofer), who is looking suspicious (but it has to be a red-herring, right?) is going to take Sasha home per Sonny’s orders, but Sonny also tells Dex to lock up when Diane is finished with her business.

Later, Diane in the dark, goes to Brando’s office to find the guardianship papers. Next, a figure appears in the doorway with the hook.  This time the ‘Hook’ looks to be of smaller stature leading many on social media that the person behind the violence could be Esme.

In other developments, Elizabeth Webber’s (Rebecca Herbst) convoluted storyline, just got even more convoluted.  Liz looks at the photo she’s drawn and suddenly has a flashback revealing the woman’s face at the bottom of the stairwell.  She then tells Finn (Michael Easton) that after her recent session with Kevin, she recalls seeing the woman’s face. Conveniently, Finn was just talking about his late wife, Reiko with Gregory (Gregory Harrison).  So, when Liz talks to Finn, she sees a woman’s face on Finn’s phone.

Finn explains that the picture is of his late wife, Reiko.  He tells Liz he is working on a case that reminded him of Reiko, and he mentions being in the Mariana Islands with her. That makes Liz frantic and she decides to leave. Next, she heads home, where she locates a photo of her and her sister, Sarah. The photo is titled, “Elizabeth and Sarah, Mariana Islands, 1997.”

So, do you think Diane will perish or survive the attack by the ‘Hook’? Who is the ‘Hook”? What on earth is going on with Liz’s storyline? Share your thoughts and theories in the comment section below.  But first, vote in our latest ‘Michael’s Poll’ below by voting on which character is the culprit behind all of the bloodshed?

Johnny Wactor on Brando’s GH Demise: “I Have Been Blown Away By The Reaction From The Fans, I Had No Idea That You Guys Cared So Much About My Character”

It’s been an emotional week for General Hospital viewers following the death of Brando Corbin; which meant that actor Johnny Wactor has wrapped his run on the ABC daytime drama series.

On Thursday, Wactor shared his ‘thanks’ to all the loyal GH fans who took the journey with him and his on-screen alter-ego via a video post on his Instagram account.

Johnny expressed: “It’s been a couple days since the demise of Brando Corbin in Port Charles as we know it.  And I have to tell ya, I have been so blown away by the reaction from the fans.  I had no idea that you guys cared so much about my character. I’m so grateful for the outpour of questions and support.

Social media was abuzz when Brando suddenly died following successful surgery after being attacked by the ‘hook’.  Some fans felt Wactor’s presence will be sorely missed; while others shared that they felt Brando was not a necessary character.

Wactor took all of the comments like a champ and in his video message added: “Whether you were excited to see Brando Corbin killed off, or outraged and have questions, man, I’m just so lucky to have been on this show, truly.”

As he concluded his ‘thank you’s’, Johnny let GH viewers know he does have some other projects that you will see him in very soon, sharing: “Thank you so much for letting me bring Brando Corbin to life.  Thank you for caring, and thank you for all the support and the well-wishes for my future endeavors, whether that’s back in Port Charles at some point, or another show, or other films … which there’s some coming.”

Lastly, Johnny added, “I’ll miss ya, and you enjoy the rest of the week.”

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Brando Dies … But Not From His Wounds

On Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital, poor Sasha (Sofia Mattsson) was hit with yet another punch to the gut.  After losing her baby, Liam, back in December of 20201, she has now lost her husband, Brando (Johnny Wactor), in s shocking turn events that played out in Brando’s hospital room.

Finally coming to (following being ‘hooked’ by the mysterious figure) after surviving hours of surgery from his wounds, he goes coughs up blood and then goes into a massive seizure right in front of Sasha.

Panicked, Sasha calls for help, where Portia (Brook Kerr) and her team run in to try to save Brando.  Next, we get a montage of the love story of Brando and Sasha, which is never a good sign on soap operas – as it more often than not – signals the end of the line for a character.

After Portia is completely rattled by why Brando is dying when the surgery is a success, eventually he passes away.  Portia comes out of his hospital room and tells Sasha they did everything they could.  Just then, Brando’s mom, Gladys (Bonnie Burroughs) along with Nina (Cynthia Watros), come by and all the women are struck with heartbreaking grief.  Sonny (Maurice Benard) happens upon the scene and asks Portia what happened and she reveals there were sudden complications.

Wanting a moment alone to say goodbye to his cousin, Sonny (Maurice Benard) tells Brando to take care of Liam and Mike when he sees them in heaven. Sonny also promises to take care of Sasha and Gladys. Next, Sasha wants Sonny to go into Brando’s room with her, and they are joined by Nina and Gladys, who all stand over his bedside in tears.

Elsewhere, Portia finds Finn (Michael Easton) to look over Brando’s medical reports and case, and relates that Brando’s symptoms don’t track with what happened to him when he was brought into the ER and what happened in surgery.  She ponders if there is a more sinister explanation for his death, hoping Finn (even though he is an infectious disease doc) can help shed some light.
