Of course I hope Maurice wins! General Hospital has unlimited, top shelf talent with and without the former OLTL additions and I appreciate them all but, Maurice/Sonny is my favorite, favorite. He is the flavor, the polish and the elegance that helps to set GH apart. Even after the extremely beleaguered 2011, 23 Daytime Emmy nominations. What a show! Best of luck to all the GH nominees in all categories but for Outstanding Lead Actor, Mo for the WIN!

Sonny on GH has been one of the best characters on Daytime. There will always be only one ‘ Sonny Corinthos, Jr.’.

Michael, how come you’re not showcasing ALL HLN’s interviews with daytime stars? Deidre Hall, Heather Tom and all the other great links they have on their site right now in honor of daytime? Nothing against Maurice, because I do like him, I just don’t know why only he’s gotten attention on your site for his interview.

I cannot stand Sonny and the guy who plays him he mumbles and always looks like he is looking for his crib notes.No thanks If they give him the emmy over some of the more talented other actors that are also nominated.That will be a shame and we will know the reason no one is watching. Sonny made me shut the show off for quite a few years,and if they keep the mob on every day,I may just shut it off again. I don’t like the mob,I don’t like the killing,the mob with a heart of gold,GMAB. That makes me… Read more »

General Hospital’s Halloween Week Promo Touts Wicked Surprises

Looks like everyone will be on edge this week as Halloween comes to Port Charles.  In the newly-released ABC promo for General Hospital, it reveals that this spooky week of episodes will be a rollercoaster ride, featuring wicked surprises, and killer costumes.

After Epiphany (Sonya Eddy) scolds Franco (Roger Howarth) for having his hand in the candy jar, Anna (Finola Hughes) or is it? … is donning a black witches hat. Jackie (Kim Delaney) is seen opening her door, juxtaposed with Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) saying “trick or treat”. But, is he actually at the door of someone else?

Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) asks Ava (Maura West), “Darling, what are you holding behind your back?” That is revealed to be a knife, but is it Ava who truly has the knife?

 

Meanwhile, Jason (Steve Burton) is looking around in the dark.  Elsewhere, Peter is jumpy.  So much so that Spinelli (Bradford Anderson) utters, “Looks like you’ve seen a ghost.”

Add all that to last Friday’s episode of GH where Carly(Laura Wright) thinks she saw Nelle’s (Chloe Lanier) hand come out of her grave and attack her! Is Nelle (Chloe Lanier) going to be proven to be alive? And if so, will she pop up on Halloween and scare the hell out of Carly?

Watch the promo below, then let us know what you think will happen this week on General Hospital via the comment section.
