Over the last few times we have spoken formally with General Hospital’s superstar Maurice Benard, he has mentioned that he would love the chance to for his soap alter-ego Sonny Corinthos to go toe-to-toe with Genoa City’s Victor Newman in a soap crossover, somehow, someway!

Last night on Benard’s Twitter account, the  uber-popular Daytime Emmy winner mentioned it again when tweeting, “Idk what was said but I respect @ebraeden & would love to see a faceoff between Sonny & Victor Newman. Theyd have to put me on 2 phone books.”   Of course, Maurice was referring to his height difference to faceoff with Ole’ Vic as played by Daytime Emmy winner himself, Braeden.

So, would you like to see a Sonny Corinthos and Victor Newman showdown? A way for the two to crossover from Genoa City to Port Charles and back again? Or, perhaps a reviving of the “What-If” series with network soap crossovers online? And, if Sonny and Victor were to face-off in the tough guy category, who do you think would have the upper hand? Let us know!

That is asking an awful lot for TWO networks that have one foot out the door already for continuing soaps on their networks.

The only way Maurice is going to bring a mobster or bad guy personality to Victor Newman’s front door is to leave GH and have Jill give him a job … and we know she would in a heartbeat.

I think both actors could do a spoof online without referring to each other’s character by name. From my perspective, Sonny would win in the short term because he has henchmen in the shadows at all times. Also, Victor has a heart condition. Achilles Heel?

Why stop there,throw in Stefano from Days,and Eric from B&B and we can have a 4 way dance.

SUSAN

stefano yes with victor and sonny i can not see eric going toe to toe with either
but i do like him on b&b

one problem with b&b they have so much bed hopping everyday and its get old
after a while, but that is only my opinion

prefer gh, y&r and days to b&b but know bold and beautiful has large fan following and hope we can keep the last 4 soaps on air for a while

It seems like a fun idea at first but to be honest, without the promise of any redemption or radical change of course, the exercise would be futile. Sometimes, these anti-heroes do wear on me with their repetitive plot lines and the way they never seem to learn to be changed by the experiences.

In the soap reality universe Sonny and Victor would have no reason to battle each other, more than likely, Victor would hire Sonny to do a number on Jack or they would be business partners.

He needs to stay with GH and leave Y&R alone. There is no place for him Y&R and if JFP thinks there is, she is as ridiculous as MB wanting to come over. I wish Sonny would go away for ever. Tired of JFP making every show she is on all about her buddies. Look forward to CBS and Sony replacing her arrogant self.

That would be a hell of a lot of mumbling in one place! Closed captioning/subtitles would be an absolute necessity.

I know, I’ve read that about Sonny, and I don’t see that, but Victor on the other hand, YES!

Andy too funny for words !

Oh No, no no no. Two worse characters I can’t imagine, and in the same scenes together would be altogether too much. The whole place would smell like burning ham.

And between MB’s forgetting his lines, and EB mumbling his as he reads them off his ever-present cell phone, it would be more like a Saturday Night Live skit than anything else.

Fever dreams, MB. Take two acting lessons and call us in the morning.

SUSAN

mb and eb both can act circles around half the other actors on either show

that is why cbs and abc keep both the on air

and let us not forget they both have won emmys for the role they play
just my opinion

i love both mb and eb but mb is my fav

aria

two narcissitic characters going at it? it would be never ending ego maniacs going at it and do we have that much air time to satisfied them? yikes!

Victor would win, hands down. He is much wiser and threatening than sonny.

Would LOVE to see these two egos go toe-to-toe (or phonebook to toe). Maybe they could do a “Funny or Die” skit. I think the fans would love it. Show a “human” side to theses larger than life characters. It would also bring some attention to their shows that might interest some lapsed fans.

Victor VS Sonny, Victor would win. Victor has more staying power. And I wouldn’t want Mo on Y&R, and I don’t even want him on GH. I’ve never been a fan of the actor nor his character. Sonny is a needy guy, a very needy guy. Stay on GH. And let Victor do his own work, without being interrupted from a no-good mobster.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Julexis Goes To Therapy

On General Hospital, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) was able to convince Julian (William deVry) to attend therapy with her to help her better understand her issues with men and relationships, which all of have been tainted by the destructive relationship between her father Mikkos Cassadine and her mother.

When Julexis sits down for the session with Dr. Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom), things take a bad turn when Alexis starts explaining to Julian why he is there, while Julian feels it’s just an attack on him, and their past, especially when it comes up how he held a knife at her throat on the pier and tried to kill her. Julian tells Kevin that everything he did was to protect his family from his crazy sister, Olivia.

Julian is ready to storm out, but Kevin suggest they implement more structure to the session to make this work for everyone.  It’s clear Julian does want to help Alexis, and/or also come to understand something about himself and their relationship, and why it splintered.  When asked by Kevin why Julian felt encouraged to pursue Alexis when he first came to town; knowing he was a criminal and she was on the right-side-of-the-law, Julian with tears in his eyes says, “Redemption.”  Julian says he fell in love with Alexis, but also liked the idea of proving and becominga better man.  He then says that both of them were trying to break the cycle of violence from their pasts, and he wished they had both been able to do so – in a heavy-dose-of-reality moment for Julexis.

The session ends, and Julian and Alexis walk to the hospital elevator, and he agrees to go to more sessions with her, saying that they both have issues to address so they can move on with their lives.  Alexis thanks Julian and offers one day to repay this favor.

In these scenes, William deVry and Nancy Lee Grahn brought the heartfelt emotions and the internal conflict that has made Julexis a dynamic duo on GH.   Now with Julian seemingly moving on with Kim (Tamara Braun), and Alexis wanting a fresh start, will these joint therapy sessions enable them to do that  … or perhaps can they resolve the issues that have plagued them, and move on with each other, and grow from it?

So, do you think this is the true end of the road for Julexis?  What did you think of the performances of Will and Nancy?  Comment below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Chase and ‘Janelle’ Two Sides To Every Story?

On Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital, viewers were given more of the back-story between Chase (Josh Swickard) and Nelle (Chloe Lanier) told through a series of flashback from their disparate recollections.

At the PCPD, over the phone, Chase thanks his former police partner, Abby for sending the files he had on one … Janelle Benson.  As he peruses through the files and sees the image of Nelle contained within it, and a postcard from Florida, Chase flashes back to his interrogation room and meeting suspect ‘Janelle’, when he was working as an officer in Maine.  Nelle was being questioned in the drowning of her fiance’ Zack..  Chase asks why the upset ‘Janelle’ chose to vacation in Maine instead of Florida.  She says it was so Zack could put space between him and his disapproving family.  However, ‘Janelle’ does admit going kayaking was her idea.

Next, she cries that she had to make the decision to try to save Zack from drowning, but thought maybe she might die too, so she decided to save herself, and not go in after him, in what was an impossible situation to be in.  Abby questions ‘Janelle’ about Zack changing his will right before they headed off for their vacation.  ‘Janelle’ lets it firmly be known that it was all Zack’s idea to change his will.

Chase believes ‘Janelle’ is innocent, but Abby thinks Janelle is played the helpless victim card.  Chase decides to release Nelle.  Later, Chase remembers traveling to Florida, because Nelle was reportedly being harassed by Zack’s family.  When he got to Florida, he recalls staying in a motel, and was set to meet up with her at a diner.  However, ‘Janell’e surprised him while he was half-naked in a towel and the door of his room.  Next thing you know, things get hot and heavy as she seduces him.  Chase flashes to them hitting the sheets and being in the throes of passion, and promising to take care of everything for her.

Meanwhile, Nelle and Michael (Chad Duell) are talking at The Floating Rib.  Nelle admits to Michael that she has a past with Chase, and her fear of him trying to bring her down now that he is in Pot Charles.  She says that Chase would do anything to get ahead in his career.  Michael asks if Maine was truly the last time she saw Chase.  She says it wasn’t, and says he followed her to Florida.

Now, as there are two sides to every story, Nelle flashes to coming to visit Chase at his motel room; where he is only wearing a towel . In her version, she portrays Chase as the instigator.  She start to cry and tells Michael that in her gut she knew that something was off about Chase, but she felt like she was drowning inside and he was her lifeline. Nelle says Chase became obsessed with her.

Then while alone, Nelle remembers how she was able to get Chase to go out to the store and get her some water after their hot sexcapade.. Once she is all by herself, Nelle calles the police to report misconduct by an officer at the motel.  Meanwhile, Michael has headed over to the PCPD to confront Chase.

So, which version of the story of  Chase and ‘Janelle’ do you believe? It appears Nelle has done a number on Chase. What did you think of Chloe Lanier’s performance where she can go from portraying the victim in a situation, to an evil bitch, with ease?  What do you think of Josh Swickard as the PCPD’s main cop, now that Dominic Zamprogna (Dante) is on his way out of GH?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

Meanwhile, Carly had been talking to Kevin (Jon Lindstrom), who says he will help her through her ordeal emotionally.  But is Carly really seeing Kevin, or is it just a figment of her imagination?

Elsewhere, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) seeks out her ex Julian (William deVry) as she tries to come to terms with the root cause of her issues with the men she chooses to be in her life.  Julian, who has gotten closer to Kim (Tamara Braun), now has a chance to try to help Alexis and make up for the ways in which he hurt her.  Could this be the beginning of the patching up of Julexis, or the final straw?

Sonny (Maurice Benard) has just learned that Mike (Max Gail) moved the body buried at Croton. Where did Mike take it?  How will this have future implications?
