General Hospital picks up this week with the court trial of the death of  little Hope and Starr’s beloved beau, Cole at the hands of a supposed mob war where Anthony Zacchara’s tires were blown out due to mysterious gunshots supposedly from the guns and hands of Sonny Corinthos, which then led to the car collision that ultimately killed Starr’s family unit.

With everyone having an agenda to put Sonny behind bars for good, who do you think has the best chance of destroying the loveable, misunderstood,  and at times violent mob kingpin?  John McBain has an axe to grind from a previous past with Sonny.   There is no love lost between the Corinthos and the Zacchara clan, and Anthony is certainly out for payback.  And there is Kate, Sonny’s girlfriend, or is it Connie? Whatever the case, the trial looks to be filled with revelations and teasers!

Watch the GH preview from ABC after the jump, and let us know who you think has the best chance at revenge on Sonny, whether he is guilty of  a crime or not?

WHO CARES?! As long as SOMEONE finally gets rid of Dimples the Teflon Don of DESTRUCTION, I’ll be not just happy, but ECSTATIC!! And think of the drama and scenes we could have at a funeral!! If you could toss Liz into the bargain and maybe turn it into a Jarly reunion, my life will truly be MADE!! I’m currently down one pixie and the “Boundaries” pixie is pissing on her marriage and well on her way to a McBam hookup so it would be great to get rid of the “Wind” pixie, who is a COMPLETE waste of airtime!!

I call the “Pixies” Jason collection of girlfriend–past and present!! They’re ALL petite, brunette, condescending and holier than thou… It all started with the Original Pixie aka St. Robin aka Robin Scorpio-Drake, then we have the Wind Pixie aka Baby Mama Pizie aka Lizzard aka Elizabeth Webber(? or whatever she’s using this week), and finally, there’s the Boundaries Pixie aka Spam aka Scram aka Samantha McCall!! I have a major issue with EACH of them although Patrick has made Robin more tolerable and and John McBain is doing the same for Sam… But that’s just me!! I’m still waiting for… Read more »

Sorry I like John McBain way more than Sonny…Again tired of his mob character on GH………..I think these mob stories are hurting GH…………Again more love & mystery stories..

I hope it is Connie. There is nothing worse than being betrayed by the one you love. John McBain should contribute too because Sonny always thinks he is smarter than law enforcement. I don’t care if Sonny is guilty or not. It will be all the more entertaining if he ends up in jail for a crime he did not commit.

Can the show seriously quit with all of this mob crap?! I mean seriously! And why on earth is Anthony still on our screens? The man isn’t funny. He’s just annoying. I could hardly enjoy those birthday scenes with Tracy yesterday due to Anthony’s presence.

I think it’s between john Mcbain & Connie that might do sonny in…It’s about time he has gotten away with too much………………Time Sonny was put in his place….And down-size the mob/gangster stories…..They will get more viewer’s that way…That’s my opinion…Gangster stories have been going on tooooooo long…Time for change… Something new & refreshing………….It will get more & new viewer’s interested…….More love stories………………….Much less revenge & violence(gangster stories)…….When the trial is over time for Sonny to go the straight & narrow….How much longer can these gangster stories go on……………….

I am tired of Sonny & Jason mob/gangster stories……………………They need to change that storyline asap…………………………….That’s what I think….This has been goinh on for years…..Gh is getting in a rut with this story…..Gh should go in a different direction more love stories & mysteries…That keep you guessing…And interested and wanting more!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

No one will destroy Sonny because GH is now “the Sonny show” and will always be.

It’s “The Sonny & Jason Show”, Heather. Get it right.

you will eat those words! GH has already become significant;y less the “Sonny show”. Maurice even tweeted about having a lot more time on his hands since Garin Wolf came on board — and same with Ron Carlivati.

I’m new, so I don’t get too involved with Sonny one way or another. BUt I don’t think he’s guilty. I base that off of what Jason said about the kind of man Sonny is…mob boss or not. I guess the mob is supposed to have some code about killing kids. (?) If he’s brought down, my money’s on Connie. Ten to nine, however, if he’s found guilty now, he’ll be cleared in a month or two.

The mob storylines are what keep GH going…it’s not your typical love/romance soap opera and I think that is fantastic! Without Sonny, Jason and Carly, the show would be a flop. Congrats to them for not getting cut! I’m glad and look forward to watching it everyday!

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Mike’s Funeral Brings The Alzheimer’s Storyline Full Circle to Its Heart-Tugging Conclusion

When a soap opera allows a full episode to stay in the story they are telling, it can often make for a riveting hour of television.  This was the case and then some on Thursday’s emotional ending to General Hospital’s Alzheimer’s storyline; when the character of Mike Corbin (Max Gail) was given a proper send-off – a funeral – and being eulogized by those who loved and cared for him.

When GH is at its best through the years has been when it tackles social issues of our time, and this story will stand among the iconic soap’s best.  The backdrop of the story was that of father and son, grappling with and coming to terms with the past, finding love, forgiveness and redemption against this most horrific of diseases that has afflicted so many.

In the episode, Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Carly (Laura Wright) go to church and prepare themselves for the emotional day as mourners come through and share their grief and condolensces and love for Mike.  Those included: Kristina (Lexi Ainsworth – back for this one), Stella (Vernee Watson), Olivia (Lisa LoCicero) and a touching moment between Diane (Carolyn Hennesy) and Carly where the legal eagle says to Carly that if she ever needs to drink and vent let her know.

 

As the funeral begins, one by one Mike’s family and friends say beautiful words of what he meant to them,. Michael reflects about how his grandfather loved to party and how he’d like them all to raise a glass for him. . Olivia, speaks on behalf of Dante (Dominic Zamprogna), and how close Mike and Dante were.  Ava (Maura West) talks about the love and kindness and joy he brought to little Avery.

When Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) got up to speak, things became even more heartbreaking when she flashes back to a scene where she was having a terrible time and Mike was there for – always a great listener- but he tells he eventually, he will not remember her.

GH did a outstanding job of selecting scenes throughout the eulogies that punctuated who Mike was … and how he tied in to all of the characters lives.  Jason (Steve Burton) shared how he knew it wasn’t easy for Mike to come back and try to make amends with Sonny, but that no matter what, Mike kept trying to get through to Sonny to make things right between them.

Stella’s moment was also heartbreaking recalling the man who became her friend.  Carly, who was the glue that held Sonny and the family together during Mike’s illness, shared her doubt if the family could handle Mike, and what was to come, but how Sonny helped his father find inner-peace..

When Sonny gets up to talk he reveals he had a lot of anger towards his father, and how the illness made him truly see the man his dad was inside.  Sonny tells his dad he is proud of him and how grateful he was that he came back into his life.   Next, Josslyn (Eden McCoy) sings as the mourners reflect back on Mike in a touching series of juxtaposed clips against the characters in the moment at the funeral.

After the service had concluded Sonny and Carly talk how Morgan and Mike are together now, but Sonny asks for some time alone in the church. It is then Mike appears and tells his son it’s time he forgave himself, since Sonny forgave Mike.  He tells Sonny that he has made him very proud.  As he gets up to leave he kisses Sonny on the forehead and goes towards the light and to heaven.  Just after that, Dante appears at the front of the church, shocking Sonny in a beautiful analogy that now this father and son must deal with what’s ahead in their relationship, just as Sonny and Mike had done.

Courtesy/ABC

This episode featured beautiful work by Maurice Benard, and Max Gail and everyone in the supporting cast who had their moments.  It was an ensemble piece but led by Benard and Gail, who should both be receiving Emmys in 2021 for their work..
