Circle tomorrow, Tuesday, August 1st!

That is when, according to TV Line, who has posted “First Look” photos of Michael Sutton’s return to GH, Sonny (Maurice Benard) will see the late Stone Cates as he continues to be in dire consequences after being pushed into a hole by Sam (Kelly Monaco) on the docks!

Sutton, who was the focal point of one of the soaps most memorable storylines and important social issues topics of our time was killed-off GH when Stone died tragically died in late 1995 ofAIDS.

In story, Sonny and Stone had an incredible bond that played out on-screen. Stone’s relationship with Sonny was definitely ‘brotherly love”.   Sutton last reprised the role back in 2010 on GH, when his former on-screen lady love, Kimberly McCullough (Robin) also found herself in dire straits and Stone came to her in her time of need to help her get through being stuck down well!

So, get the hankies ready as Sutton and Benard are sure to have us in tears on Tuesday’s episode of GH.

I adore Sutton and Stone but I’m not looking forward to this at all. Sonny is way overexposed & infecting too many stories. Add to that GH continues to exalt this thug who’s never paid for anything, blames everyone else and hasn’t changed/evolved in 20 years. I have no doubt Stone’s dialogue will be a variant of more ‘you’re the best’ , ‘it’s not your fault’, and ‘ everyone would be destroyed without you’.
GH needs to reboot itself away from the mob and the criminals as heroes and balance the show. GH needs to fix it before there’s nothing to fix.

& it’s another episode of “The Moron Hour,” because you can’t have a conversation, or even a look, a thought, without mentioning that spoiled, petulant offspring brat of Carly and Sonny’s-UGH! Beloved Stone can’t even come back from the dead for a half hour without mentioning that pain in the *** kid.

With his litany to his children, Sonny could have mention Lila McCall, his stillborn daughter with Sam (yes, newer viewers, they were actually a couple when she first came on the show). His first wife, Lilly was pregnant when the “click-boom” car explosion occurred.

The GH ghost is back..
He’ll be on screen a total of 20 minutes then gone.

He was before my time so not excited, but! I like ghosts ..
What would be much better and way more exciting would be if the dead ones came back as the Walking Dead.. that would be good..

Celia

Yes, and have Sonny fall in love with one of them, su….I like ghosts, too….the friendly ones.
I dreamt of my beautiful cousin ( passed away three years ago) the other night. His was the only visible face….clear as a sunny day, but everyone else around him was faceless.
My Gran said that those were evil spirits ( no face).
Gotta stay away from certain people, I guess? LOL. A warning!!

Hi Celia!
I love the unknown world.. would love to explore it while alive haa!
But- this Stone guy ghost is belittling to all real ghosts!
Just shame on Shelley & Frank for their aged ghost, just shame!!

and GH could use some of those ‘faceless spirits” to liven GH up, give us an exciting creepy adventure!

Celia
Celia

I’m with you, su….I love ghost stories!!!! I could tell you a few…real ones.
I grew up listening to Norse, Scottish, and Dutch folklore. I still believe!!!!!! There are ghosts among us….call me delusional, LOL, but I see signs—these good spirits do not, necessarily, materialize, but I know they are there.
So, I’ ll take your “exciting creepy adventure”, if GH offers us one….but, not what we just witnessed with Sonny and Stone….too tame and lame.
I know you adore Sonny, SuzieQ; but, to me? He’s a kill-joy. Pardon the pun!! LOL.

But, Su, I wish for you the experience that you missed! Truly one of the best story lines of classic GH–well conceived, well written, flawlessly executed. Oh, I how I pine for the good ol’ days at GH.

Couldn’t they just throw some poisonous snakes down in that pit instead…then again Sonny is the biggest asp of them all-lol

Im so happy about this. If Carlos can have 500 twin brothers, why can’t Stone have a just one ? Please? This could actually make me hope for a Robin return.

??!

How does this make we we? He died as a teen, which is how he’s remembered.

Man, this show is struggling right now. I hope the good ship gets righted shortly

Looking forward to this episode. I sure hope Sonny down in the hope “Sonny down the hole” does not go on too long. And isn’t it a little too close to Robin down the well????

Why couldn’t he have been a twin, doppelganger, or just a new character. Dr. Joe brother. Something new.

Hey Patrick…I think because Michael Sutton doesn’t want to return to acting full time. Seems he’s happy with these sporadic, “save the moment” visits” to his loved ones!

He looks so different. I just don’t understand how it’s going to work. A person who dies doesn’t age.

su0000

I know, ghosts don’t age!
damn them for writing that ghosts age and ruin the whole concept of a real ghost..
No one, no one should recreate ghostdom, ever.. Casper should sue Shelley & Frank !

No worries, I just put a curse on Shelley..eh ehh !

su0000
su0000

And—
Stone died; 1995 at age 19 and the ghost aged 23 years, 2 decades,
lol that is more than stupid it’s even too stupid for Shelley and frank.
they outdid themselves on stupid! ahaaa!

Dark Shadows never aged a ghost, never !

My neighbor had the entire soap on CD via Amazon, and gave me a disc at a time took me 2 years or more to watch it and I LOVED it !!
It was campy perfection ! absolute perfection !
Never ever a FF moment , and that is amazing!

su0000, I can’t believe its been that long! WOW! It seriously seems like yesterday, that I was watching Stone’s battle with AIDS play out on General Hospital. The storyline was written with such heart, integrity, and sensitivity.

Celia

Ahhh, su….We both said it, many moons ago that ghosts do not age….and, yes, the image is now ruined.
Yet, I still ask: why? What was the purpose of this insipid scene, if not to put another notch in Sonny’s ” I’m a good, hallowed guy, deep down”? That’s all it was…boost Sonny’s ‘impeccably golden’ image. Take him to the stars….actually take him where the sun “don’t” shine: underground!!
Maybe he will lapse into a coma and see God….Sonny will sit by His right hand, as God extols the praises of Sonny’s earthly goodness. He will consecrate Sonny’s soul? Well, ‘reinstate’ is a more fitting word.
The redemption of Sonny Corinthos, carrying a bottle of Holy Water and all, as he walks the streets of PC blessing its citizens.

Didn’t look like he had age a bit to me! The only thing different was the clipped hair; stone had those lucious long locks. 🙂

Would be nice to have Sutton back for good, a much more welcome return than Steve Burton.

Despite aging in heaven, Stone (Sutton) looked quite well.

Sonny made the comment about being reunited with Morgan. The writers were careful to allow leeway for Morgan to return down the road. However, if Morgan is dead, Sonny probably wouldn’t be reunited as he’s probably taking the “down elevator” if you know what I mean.

That’s what I said; in other words, on the other site, Steve. Hope to see that “descent”, one day…..

WOW, do I remember rushing home from high school (walking home from the bus stop) to watch General Hospital my Freshman year, in 94-95, just dying in anticipation to see if Sonny and Brenda would be on that day. I loved Sonny, Brenda, Stone, Ned, Lois, and all of the Q’s. The writing and the storylines were based on real human emotions and struggles. Michael Sutton just brought you to tears during Stone’s battle with AIDS and his love for Robin. Brings back such memories, of what used to be a beloved show, IMO.

So beautifully stated; I agree with all of your sentiments.

Michael Sutton is still such a natural. Even in this short visit, his acting was impeccable! He just radiates emotion. Still, the Stone of yesterday will forever be that beautiful boy you just couldn’t help but fall in love with and mourn.

GH’s Steve Burton and Maurice Benard Deliver “The Power Performance of the Week”

Last week, as General Hospital aired the final episodes they had in the can, prior to the coronavirus TV production shutdown, viewers of the series were left with a one-two punch of gut-wrenching performances from Daytime Emmy winners, Steve Burton (Jason) and Maurice Benard (Sonny)

Burton, also received great news last week, when he found out he was again Emmy-nominated in the Lead Actor in a Drama Series category, while Benard, told fans he did not submit himself in the competition this year, when they were wondering where his name was in the list of the finalists in the category.  However, Maurice won last year for the second time in his career, for Outstanding Lead Actor.

Now on last Tuesday and Wednesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, Jason was trying his best to break it to Sonny that Sonny’s dad, Mike (Max Gail) is not going to get any better as he continues to decline from Alzheimer’s disease, and that Mike is waiting for Sonny to let him go.  Sonny is devastated sitting with Mike watching him being completely unresponsive.  He tell Mike he will be back to see him tomorrow, as he leaves Mike reaches out his hand slowly.

Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) has just told Jason that she believes the signs are all there that Mike is on his final decline and battle with Alzheimers. Mike is unresponsive, not eating. and slipping away quickly. She believes he wants to let go, but is holding on for Sonny’s sake, something that tears through Jason.  Knowing Jason was told something by Elizabeth, Sonny asks what it is.  That is when Jason tells Sonny he thinks Mike is waiting for Sonny to let him go.

An overcome Sonny tells Jason that he worries that Mike might still want to fight, but for what? He is a shell of himself and has no memories.  It is then that Burton as Jason, in a touching performance, tells Sonny what he’d want if he were in Mike’s place. Jason reflect that he wouldn’t want machines keeping him alive or his kids having to go through what Sonny is having to deal with right now   Jason goes on to say that even when Sonny put walls up between himself and Mike through the years, that Mike never stopped trying to break them down.

Once Jason leaves, with tears running down his cheeks, Sonny sits with Mike trying to come to terms with what he must do now.  Will Sonny let Mike die and spare his father any further misery … or will he try to prolong whatever time Mike has left?

TODAY: General Hospital Rebroadcasts Masterful 52nd Anniversary Episode

Fans are in for a treat today (Friday, May 22nd) when ABC’s General Hospital airs an encore presentation of one of the finest hours of soap opera in the history of the genre, with its 52nd anniversary episode from April 1, 2015.

In the episode, viewers finally learned what turned Luke (Tony Geary) into Fluke, which has been the on-going story for months; but it all lead up to the shocking reveal, when Luke revisited his past in his broken down childhood home and the demons that haunted him.

The episode goes from black and white to color, as Geary plays two roles: Luke and his abusive father, Tim, in one of the greatest performances of his career.

It is there we finally see Luke’s mother, Lena, played to perfection by Laura Wright (Carly).  And, it is in these scenes we meet for the first time Chloe Lanier as a young Patricia Spencer, who was so good, she was later cast as Nelle.  Playing the young Luke in another powerful performance was Joey Luthman,

Throughout the twists and turns, viewers learn that Luke not only killed his father, but accidentally killed his own mother who he loved.  It was a harrowing moment of deeply repressed memories.  The ending in the present time also features the Spencer family rallying around a distraught Luke in the hankie-inducing final scenes.
