There Will Be Blood! The Jerome Vs. Corinthos Mob War Heats Up On General Hospital!

In a newly released ABC promo teasing what is coming up on General Hospital, it looks like we have only seen the tip of the iceberg between the Jerome and the Corinthos clans mob war!

With the voice over saying, ” In the mob world, where there is betrayal …there will be blood” the action centers around Julian (William devry) telling off  Morgan (Bryan Craig), “Are you working for me? Or, are you working for your father?” Next, Sonny (Maurice Benard), Julian and Ava (Maura West) all are toting-guns!

Watch the promo after the jump!  Then, let know what you think will happen next?  Do you think Sonny will win the war, or can Julian and Ava can take him down?  Or, will everybody double-cross everybody?

I can’t see any of the major players getting killed at this point; they’re all too pivotal to the story…not to mention loved. (I know; there are probably a bunch of people who could do without Morgan. I for one think he’s great! Great looking, great acting…very poignant…the crux/heart of his emotional conflict with his dad and brother.) It’s seems from the clip that Morgan betrays Sonny…but also seems that at this point Sonny doesn’t realize it’s to keep his family safe from Julian’s threats. Wondering how Lucas will fit in. If he’ll wind up in the crossfire…son for son?… Read more »

I agree with everything you said but in wake of recent and past headlines, Hollywood needs to cut back on the violence…too much focus on solving problems with a gun…i know they gotta have some gunplay to tell a story and i do like the Jeromes…im not saying drop the violent acts entirely but maybe cut back at least some(too many real life nut cases see this stuff)…Heathers stabbing was too brutal and explicit…i wish the show would explain how she got treated and up and about…especially after being buried alive with a near fatal stab wound?

I wouldn’t call how the actor portrays Morgan as great acting. I would rather have Debbie Morgan come on and be the sister of Sean and TJ’s mom or have her be Simone Tom Jr ex wife than to have Morgan on GH, if we could do without Kristina-we can do without Morgan.

@JimH…I think it’s because he only wedged the knife between her side and her arm. LOL…sorry…but that scene just looked too staged to me! But yeah, ya know…just have to suspend your disbelief. Everything else is so ridiculously non credible that i’s almost a moot point!

@Sharonda…I (obviously) disagree. I think “Morgan” is one of the best new actors to come aboard. He has great scenes with Sonny…very expressive…I feel his angst when he vents. I feel his dilemma…his confusion…his hurt. And, for me anyway, he’s great on the eyes!

I have to disagree regarding Morgan — I think the actor is very good but the writing is not great for him. He seems like a very soulful actor who can show great emotion.

I do however, agree with bringing on Debbie Morgan. She would be a great addition in any role.

I like Debbie to be T.J.s mom…she could also be Felixs secret mother…maybe gave him up for adoption before she met T.J.s father and having T.J. then its revealed Shaun is Felixs father?

Love the Debbie Morgan idea…but we must have Darnell too……

@K. Darnell could play Sean’s friend from the military or Felix’s father. The actor who plays Morgan isn’t the best compared to Jonathan Jackson teen/young adult years. But he is easy on the eyes as Rebecca1 noted above, he should just model. But that’s just my 2 cents.

I actually like Bryan Craig’s portrayal of Morgan. He’s really grown on me since his initial arrival and relationship with Kiki. I think Mr. Craig is quite talented, I just think the writing for Morgan has been spotty at best from the get-to. Kiki and “Captain” were so freaking annoying when they blew into town he’s had to work very hard to overcome that. But he has done some really powerful work IMO.

I know your comment was from January, but boy did you say a mouthful here! I’ve never been so annoyed by these 2 blowing into town as you said, all irritating and whiny. Morgan overcame the inconsistent writing. Can’t say the same for the Kiki character.

I wish Sonny would go away and return as the thug he started out being-owning the strip club and pimping out Karen, I would rather have Jagger return as the chief detective than have useless Dante. The actor who plays Dante should have came back as Jagger. I want the Hardys back on here. And Felix should have been Tom Hardy III-otherwise he is useless and so is the Disney character of Sabrina. She should have some eating disorder or cutting thing or hooked on drugs or some other addiction to make this character relevant. She is as useless as… Read more »

So much of this cast is dead weight! Sonny, Olivia, Felix, Brad, Duke Lavery, Carrrlos, Franco….and the list goes on. Now the show is jumping on the Y and R “Lets blow the budget on former prime time stars” bandwagon. I dont get it.

I agree with pretty much everything you said, Rebecca. I’m a huge Morgan fan, I just love him to death. I am not a Sonny fan at all, so I was and still am fine with them at odds. I am happy that he and Michael are working their way back to a relationship. Kiki never should have come between them, she’s not worth it and I blame her. I would like anything except the usual Sonny always wins tripe we’ve been forced to swallow over the past decade plus. And I would be thrilled if Ava went up against… Read more »

LOL..thanks Melissa. We do differ on a few points…I actually Kiki (maybe I’m just loyal to OLTL’s Starr)…but she plays a good role. She’s honest, fair..and I like her loyalty to Franco. (Which will also be interesting because even though her instincts about Franco are right…and it will eventually be proven…wonder how/if Michael will forgive her for protecting/hiding Franco and for lying to him. ) Another dilemma in the making…

I still think Franco will turn out to really be Kiki’s father…making her Scotts granddaughter…Meanwhile, Micheal will break up with Kiki for lying to him about Franco. Then Micheal will rehook with Penny from the hospital who will turn out to be Scott’s daughter Serena who then would turn out to be Kiki’s aunt once Kiki finds out Franco is really her father! This is wishfull thinking on my part but i hope Frank and Ron see this and use it on the show!

Guest
rebecca1

did all you former OLTL fans notice that Franco is really Todd by a different name…and Silas is really John…seems to me Frank and Ron just got around the legalities by changing the characters, their names and their histories…but really…their personalities are essentially the same (in my opinion). Kiki (Starr) is 50/50…but obviously whether she’s “Franco’s” daughter or not they’ve established the same co-conspirator relationship they had on OLTL. Starr was always going to bat for her dad…she was his biggest supporter… Very sneaky Frank/Ron. It sort of satisfies the OLTL crowd…and the ones who never watched they appear brand… Read more »

This will be more of the same garbage. testosterone filled guys .everyone shoots and only day players die. GMAFB.No one is guilty of anything. maybe some innocent will be caught in the crossfire. If any of Sonnys kids die it will be because he caused it as always,. car bomb for Krissy, Bullet in chest for Dants, Bullet in the head for Michael, and Sonny put a bullet in carleys head while she was in labor. He is still on the show WHY ? The last time I shut the show off for years was also too much mobs and… Read more »

I love the show but I agree with your comments about Sonny. I am so tired of him. I don’t understand how he has such a large following of fans? How could any woman like him? He is a misogynistic bully, who has put everyone close to him in danger. He never has to answer for any of the things he does. I am completely sick of this character.

I love Sonny!!
He would not hesitate to die for any of his children..
Sonny is a very layered character..
He goes from dark and dangerous to loving and kind ..
Sonny is a protective loving father and a dangerous man as a mobster..
Sonny is both sides of the coin ..

Ya. This is EXACTLY what the fans have been asking for for the past 15 years. MORE mob stories. WHY do the writers and producers NOT read forums like this???? For every ONE fan who actually likes the character of Sonny, there are probably 100 who despise him. For every fan who wants their beloved General Hospital to be a low-rent knock off of The Sopranos, there are a thousand who don’t. The “mob as heroes” throughline has never made sense, but it is even more glaring now. Especially with the shoddy writing of the character of Sam. This is… Read more »

I disagree with most all you wrote.. I love the mob which in fact is not merely 2 families fighting for the power, when they fight.. when are not fighting their personal lives are very innerspring. The Jerome family is very layered and good stories that are not related to any fighting. The so called mob part is is small in comparison to the family. The writing is excellent, the stories intriguing.. There is no longer mobs in Port Charles it is more like the 2 families living out an old feud like the Hatfiedls and Mccoyes..

I admit I get on my soapbox about Sonny way too much, but I’ve never been able to word my disgust quite like you. I feel like we are soulmates! But seriously, there is not one thing in this post that I do not agree with 100%. Too add to it, Sonny used to have a compass.

The mob stuff is a small part of all the on going stories..
Also, The mob stuff has a lot to with family..
There are very few scenes of actual violence.. we are grownups and watch prime-time.. And GH has been prime-time quality .. 🙂
When watching GH one needs to see the whole of GH not a small part of it, tunnel vision and soaps do not mix, there are so many stories taking place..

As for me, the campy crappy love problems are stale ..
Love in soaps is filler ..
GH has enough couples and their problems..
Count to couples ..

Oh. And where do I buy your brand of rose colored glasses?. Lol. Just kidding. I am really not insulting you for your opinion. But that is EXACTLY how Sonny is presented and portrayed. To see him any other way is only to view him as “misunderstood”. And I dont see any misunderstanding there. Sonny orders hits with glee. He whines and cries when his loved ones die ad nauseum, Yet he makes no effort to get out of the mob. And before anyone says “You cant just get out of the mob”….I say its a soap!

I agree with you there. However…my main point is that the morality has gotten skewed. The bad guys never pay for their crimes, while the good people suffer endlessly. While Sonny gets loyal family and an endless parade of love interests, Georgie and Emily die gruesome deaths. Back in the good old days of soaps…the payoff was in seeing how the bad guys would gt their comeuppance and the good guys would triumph. That was rewarding entertainment. Remember David Kimball from Y and R? He terrorized the town. He was not presented as a misunderstood leading man…he was evil. That… Read more »

My point is…and I don’t mean it to be condescending…is just the point you made. These shows are on every day…these characters are on a lot of the time…and that’s why we watch soaps!

A while ago, I read that the actress who played Lily might be talking about coming back to GH. I wonder if that happened, and she asked Sonny to walk away from the mob, if he’d do it? Would he be willing to give up “his territory” in order to find true love with Lily again? I think this would be one way to end the mob war and keep everyone on the canvas. The only problem with that is, What would you do with the darker sides of the characters? I don’t mind a shoot out every now and… Read more »

There are no mobs..

2 families fighting for power over an old past is not a mob.
I’s the the Hatfiedls and Mccoyes.. LOL !
not even enough people to be them them, but closer than a mob..

Sonny and Shawn and Julian and Ava and Carlos, are mobs? hahaha! a mob is not 2 or 3 people 🙂

What people are calling a mob story is not about violence mob stuff it is about the families, actually, the Jerome’s are an intriguing family who we rarely see being gun shooting mobster . shhezus ,,

General Hospital

GH’s Charles Shaughnessy On Victor’s Villainy: “He’s Just Making Trouble for All of the Fan Favorites! He’s Just Making Their Lives Miserable”

In pretty short order, Victor Cassadine’s re-emergence in Port Charles, and now played by daytime vet, Charles Shaughnessy, has caused plenty of havoc on ABC’s General Hospital.  Shaughnessy, who was much beloved as Shane Donovan on Days of our Lives, debuted on GH back in September of 2021.

You can look at the body count, or the people Victor has under his thumb, to know the impact he is making on the canvas.

In a new interview in the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest (on newsstand now), Shaughnessy weighs-in on being the treacherous Cassadine.

 

Charles shared: “I mean, he’s just making trouble for all of the fan favorites! He’s just making their lives miserable.  He’s the guy who killed Luke Spencer.  He’s the guy who put Anna in jail and tried to break up her relationship with Valentin.  He’s just miserable to Holly. He’s just dreadful! But it’s such great fun, I mean, the more dreadful the better, really. He’s the villain you love to hate.”

Photo: ABC

So, how and just when Victor will get his comeuppance is on everyone’s mind in the viewing audience as well as for characters such as: Laura (Genie Francis), Valentin (James Patrick Stuart), Lucy (Lynn Herring), Holly (Emma Samms), Anna (Finola Hughes), Ava (Maura West), Selina (Lydia Look), and many more.

Victor’s evil deeds seemed to reach new heights during the Holly Sutton storyline. Now the question is, who will he go after next, given what would seem to be his quest for the necklace containing diamonds from the Ice Princess?  Stay tuned.

What do you think of Charles’ portrayal of Victor? Who do you hope takes down Victor? Comment below.

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Felicia, Robert & Holly’s Masterplan Revealed Featuring Heart-Tugging Moments from Tristan Rogers & Emma Samms

Wednesday’s General Hospital began where the previous episode left off, with an on-fire, Holly Sutton (Emma Samms), literally! As the action picks up, Robert (Tristan Rogers) covers Holly with blankets to try and douse the flames.  The paramedics announce Holly has suffered second-degree burns over 75% of her body.

When the ambulance takes off, Robert goes with it. Meanwhile, Jordan (Tanisha Harper) and Mac (John J. York) are looking for evidence from the cabin fire … and wonder where the necklace has gone?

Courtesy/ABC

Later, the ambulance pulls over to the side of the road, and one of the drivers is none other than paramedic Felicia Scorpio (Kristina Wagner)! Felicia reveals herself as does Holly, who is perfectly fine, and Robert, who was in on the entire ruse to get Holly safely out of the country and away from Victor Cassadine (Charles Shaughnessy).

Viewers learn in flashbacks how this trio worked together to pull this off: Felicia showed up at the cabin with fire retardant clothes for Holly to wear and revealed how she planned to set the stove to start the fire.  We then learn that Holly and Robert staged Robert’s drugging and mugging, in order for Holly to steal the necklace and leave it inside the cabin for the PCPD to find.  It was Holly’s plan to ensure that Victor would have no further use for her.

Next, Robert gives Holly the keys to a car that can’t be traced; as she is to drive to Canada with a new ID and completely disappear.  Felicia adds that records will show that Holly was taken to a burn facility halfway around the world, freeing her to find out just where Victor is holding her beloved son, Ethan.

Courtesy/ABC

Holly has a surprise in store for Victor on her departure! In a flashback, Holly meets up with Selina Wu (Lydia Look) on the pier and gifts her with one of the jewels from the necklace in exchange for poisoning Victor for her. Holly tells Selina she won’t find her son alive and well if Victor is dead, and assures Selina the poison will not kill Victor, but will be payback.

As the episode comes to a conclusion, and if you are a longtime fan of GH, you probably reached for the hankies in touching and beautifully-played moments between Tristan Rogers and Emma Samms.

Courtesy/ABC

In the story, Holly apologizes to Robert for all the trouble she has caused, but the two share a passionate kiss before they say their final goodbyes. BUT .. you didn’t think Holly would try to get away without one last scheme? She had the necklace in her pocket the whole time, begging the question … was she  going to take it with her? However, Robert knew Holly had the necklace and asks her to hand it over to him, which she does.

For her final moments, Holly walks off into the fog, which could only signify that this guest star turn for Emma Samms has come to its conclusion.

So, what did you think about the twists on today’s episode? Did you think Robert, Felicia and Holly were in cahoots? What did you think of the final scenes between Tristan Rogers and Emma Samms? Comment below.

General Hospital

GH’s Holly Set Ablaze; Show Reveals Stunt Double For Emma Samms From Major Cliffhanger

If you caught the end of Tuesday’s fiery episode of General Hospital, you know that Holly (Emma Samms) who was cornered by the PCPD, ended up on fire when the cabin she was in went up in flames!

In the cliffhanger, Holly was seen on fire coming out of the cabin.  Of course, viewers knew that a stunt double would have to be called in to tape such a moment, and that is exactly what the ABC daytime drama series did.

On Wednesday, GH’s official Instagram released a photo of Samms and stunt performer Colby Lemmo stating: “We’re seeing double! 🔥 Let’s give stunt performer @colby_lemmo a hand for helping bring yesterday’s explosive finale to life. 👏👏👏 ”

Lemmo has performed stunts for major motion pictures and TV shows  including: The Mandalorian, Westworld, Criminal Minds, 9-1-1. and many others.

Now the question becomes, what will happen to Holly? We know that Emma Samms only returned to GH for a limited-run to reprise her signature GH role.

Does this mean that Holly might be recast with a new face, if she is badly burned and disfigured … or is this just an exit strategy where the character gets sent away to heal from her burns … or was that not really Holly who came out of the cabin?  Three possible theories that fans are pondering.

So, what did you think of the fiery conclusion of yesterday’s GH? What do you think will happen to Holly? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
