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.  

Excited to see how the scenes play out? Comment below.

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.

Amen brother!!!

& 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..

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!

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

Geez, no point of me dieing since ghosts age anyway-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

Can not wait!

I can not wait to see Sonny and Stone together love them both <3

Had to be Stone he saw today. Is it Tuesday yet??? THANK you #GH just who my SONNY needed.

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.

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 !

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.

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.

General Hospital’s Adam J. Harrington Weighs-in On John and Carly, and How it’s ‘Starting to Get Very Complicated”

On recent episodes of General Hospital, Carly (Laura Wright) came to John “Jagger” Cates (Adam Harrington) rescue as he was beaten down in an assault. Carly put on her “nurses cap,” sort of speak, and got John to his hotel room and watched over to him, to make sure he didn’t lose consciousness.

GH fans also got their first glimpse of what may be a new romance for Carly, if she and John continue to bond.  If John and Carly were to have a relationship, it would certainly have a ripple effect with Jason (Steve Burton) and Sonny (Maurice Benard).

Adam J. Harrington shared his view on the scenes and what might be next between the two. Speaking to Soap Opera Digest, Harrington shared, “I thought it was written in a way where there’s an understanding and a respect between them both. I don’t think there was any moment where she was not aware that he’s an FBI agent, and there was no moment that he wasn’t aware of her history and relationship to other people in the town. I really liked it. I was really looking forward to shooting it with Laura and we had a really nice time shooting it.”

When Carly and John part ways, it seems there were some romantic sparks, as Harrington puts it, “Isn’t that interesting that sometimes with people, the one moment they actually show how they feel is when they know there’s an escape hatch. They know they’re about to walk away. So, it’s almost safe in that moment to do it. I thought that was really special about how (the writers) handled John and Carly. Even the music in that scene was beautifully done.”

Where is this all heading? Conflict! Internally and professionally, and as Adam explains, “Who Carly was to John on paper as just a tool to be used as bait is starting to get very complicated.”

General Hospital’s Steve Burton Reveals the Emotional Scene He Almost Could Not Get Through

On a recent episode of General Hospital, Jason received a message from his mother, Monica Quartermaine (Leslie Charleson) via a note. The effect it had on Jason’s portrayer, Steve Burton turned out to be quite visceral.

As GH fans know, although Jason’s bio-mom was Susan Moore, he was raised and adopted by Monica. Speaking on his Daily Drama podcast with his co-host and GH co-star, Bradford Anderson (Spinelli), Steve shared some insight on the difficulties he had getting through that scene.

Burton shared that in the key moment, “Brooklyn (played by Amanda Setton) came in and that’s where she gave me (Jason) the letter from Monica. That was a very hard scene for me to do. That was a tough one. That was the one time I was almost going to call ‘cut!’  It read ‘Jason, I believe in you.’ I was literally going to walk off the set.”

To clarify and in the story, Monica was saying “I believe in you” and that she knows Jason didn’t shoot Dante (Dominic Zamprogna). Steve added, “It was tough, man. Emotionally, it was a tough scene. It was overwhelming in the moment.”

Steve went on to detail to Anderson, “She (Brook Lynn) pushed it to me and I read it and she was walking out and I had to stop her, but I was so emotional I couldn’t even get it out.  And at that point, I’m like, ‘Do I just keep going … or do I just walk off the set right now?’ But, I knew just to stay, because it’s so hard to get back there, once you shut it down. I knew, the next take wasn’t going to be the same.”

It’s clear that Leslie Charleson is so missed on-screen as Monica by all of her castmates, and that Jason and Monica had a very special mother/son relationship throughout the decades on GH.

What did you think of the moment when Jason got a note from Monica that said, “I believe in you?” Were you touched as well? Let us know in the comment section. You can check out the latest episode of Steve and Bradford’s podcast below.
