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

Courtesy/ABC

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…

that was supposed to be “like” Kiki…

jimh(leave it to beaver)
Guest

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!

rebecca1
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..

Johnny I don’t know you but if I wasn’t already married I’m come stalk you down and marry you! THANK YOU for this excellent post from January 2014 (yikes..I’m behind). 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. He’s always been a tortured soul, but he was capable of great kindness,… Read more »

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!

good vs. evil. such is life….

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 »

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: What Will Happen When Port Charles Finds Out What Happened to Jason? (PROMO)

This week on ABC’s General Hospital look for the news of Jason (Steve Burton) being buried under the rubble in the cave explosion on Cassadine Island to have a ripple effect for his family and loved ones.

Finally, Britt (Kelly Thiebaud) has the task to report to Carly (Laura Wright) what happened to Carly’s bestie and almost husband!

How will Carly get through losing Jason and as she gets closer to the truth that Nina (Cynthia Watros) and Sonny had a romantic past and lingering feelings for each other, while the two were in Nixon Falls?  Will it all be too much for her to bear?

What will happen with Sam, now that Jason is gone, Drew is back ,and she is a new relationship with Dante?

Then, who will become Sonny’s hitman with no Jason around?  These are major questions left to be answered with the departure of the character of Jason from the GH canvas.

Steve Burton and Bradford Anderson Share Disagreement with Each Other Over Vaccine Mandate; Will Continue ‘Stone Cold and the Jackal’ Shows In 2022

On the latest episode of their That’s Awesome podcast with Steve and Bradford, released over the Thanksgiving holiday, General Hospital’s Bradford Anderson (Spinelli) and Steve Burton (Ex-Jason Morgan) took some moments to address how Steve’s decision to not adhere to the ABC and GH Covid-19 vaccine mandate (which caused the two-time Daytime Emmy-winning star to be let go from the show) would affect their live shows, podcasts, content moving forward, as well as if it has caused a riff in their friendship.

When addressing listeners of the podcast, Anderson shared the the two would continue on with their projects, but that he disagreed with Burton’s decision to not follow the GH vaccine mandate.

Photo: Podcast One

Bradford expressed: “If you know us, and know are brand, if you will, it’s built on friendships, and like all friends, we have disagreements.  I disagree with Steve’s decision and he knows that. But over are years of friendships, we have had plenty of discussions about this and other topics, and sometimes we agree and sometimes we don’t, but at the end of the day we are still friends.”

Steve added: “We usually don’t get into decisive things on the show.  Look, I have a right to believe in what I want, and you have a right to believe in what you want, and that’s what makes this country great and we have never been about division.”  In addition, Steve was clear that he has not agreed to any interviews at this time on the subject of his exit, and that he is already moving on, sharing: “I am just grateful for my time at General Hospital and the people and the friendships I have made there, especially with the fans.  I have had an incredible life. Listen, I’m OK. I’m at peace. I ‘m moving forward and I am excited about it.  Like I said in my video, when one door closes, multiple doors open, and that’s what happened already.  I’ve gotten a lot of requests for interviews that I don’t want to do, because I don’t want division … that’s the bottom line.”

Look for Anderson and Burton to hit the road in 2022 and continue with their successful Stone Cold and the Jackal live comedy show and appearances.

What did you think about how Steve and Bradford addressed their disagreement on the vaccine mandate within the podcast? Will you be seeing Steve and Bradford live if they come to your town in 2022? Comment below.
