Photo:MSuttonInstagram

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… Read more »

& 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!

Celia
Guest
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.

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.

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.

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,… Read more »

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.

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 Michael Easton and Finola Hughes Deliver the ‘Power Performances of the Week’

It was an emotional week of episodes on General Hospital as the double-wedding of Finn (Michael Easton) and Anna (Finola Hughes), and Peter (Wes Ramsey) and Maxie (Kirsten Storms) took a double nose-dive.

Each installment left us wondering if either couple would actually get hitched, but when Finn and Anna were the first to combust and not Peter and Maxie, it set the stage for two beloved soap veterans to once again, remind us all, why they are always at the top of the game when required to play high drama that tugs at the heartstrings.

In story, Finn is gut-punched, (and no one can play that better than Michael Easton), when Anna reveals that she knew that Peter was not her biological son and had done all the horrific deeds he has been hiding, in an effort to stop Maxie from marrying Peter.  When Finn realizes Anna confided in Valentin (James Patrick Stuart), and they were working together to bring Peter down it was too much for him to take.

Finn walks out on their wedding.  Alone and with tears welling up in his eyes, Finn feels his chance at love is dashed again.  Add to the fact, he has DNA results to prove if he is Chase’s (Josh Swickard) father and not his brother, or not, and the guy has been through the wringer of late.

As for Anna, she has literally imploded her own life, while trying to save others, after realizing the error of her ways; constantly putting her faith in Peter.  When she comes to visit Finn, she knows no matter what she says to Finn it looks bad.  She sees how she has hurt him, and hopes they can still repair their now fractured relationship, but she has to stop Peter and help her God-daughter, Maxie from making the biggest mistake of her life, so she leaves him to go back to the scene of the double-wedding.

Later in the week, Anna shares a heartfelt scene with her ex Robert Scorpio (Tristan Rogers), whom she knows she can have an honest conversation knowing her life of espionage and their shared history.  Meanwhile, Jackie (Kim Delaney) and Finn’s pull is there as well, as it appears Jackie’s attraction to Finn still remains all these years later when he visits her shortly after being blindsided by Anna at the nuptials.

Throughout the week, Easton and Hughes played all the nuances of their character’s emotional life, as the audience witnessed which just might be the end of the line for Finn and Anna.

For all of these reasons and more, Michael Fairman TV names Michael and Finola’s work, The Power Performances of the Week.

So, let us know, what did you think of what happened to Finn and Anna? The double-wedding fiasco? Did you enjoy Michael and Finola’s scenes? Comment below.

GH’s Wes Ramsey Makes Statement on Criticism, Social Media, and Professionalism

General Hospital’s Wes Ramsey, who portrays polarizing character, Peter August on the ABC daytime drama series, responded to a recent take on his role from cast mate, Tristan Rogers (Scorpio) when a video made its way through social media.

The video was from a Cameo appearance, where Rogers offered an assessment of the Peter August storyline and expressed that while he knows Ramsey is a strong actor, he felt he was “wrong for the character” being that Peter was the son of the evil Faison played by Anders Hove.

Rogers also came to the defense of Ramsey and shared: “Don’t be too hard on Wes Ramsey. He’s got himself into a horrible storyline, and the storyline is the fault of the show. What they’ve literally done is they’ve painted themselves into a corner, and they don’t know how to get out of it.”

Currently, Peter’s story is front and center on GH with his wedding to Maxie (Kirsten Storms), and the fallout from all of the character’s dirty deeds.

Now Ramsey took to his Instagram account to address what transpired and his thoughts on the perils of social media, professionalism and acting, expressing: “Actors are storytellers, shapeshifters, chameleons. We’re also in the business of cultivating trust bc that’s how the best work is brought to life. We have to trust our imaginations, our instincts. We have to trust our fellow actors, because without them, there’s no scene to play. In the collaborative efforts of bringing any show to life, we also have to trust our directors each day to steer the arch of our story (like a conductor with a symphony) & trust our writers who are tasked with composing the symphonies we play out. I came up in a world of classical theater, where trusting the play, text, story is essential to the tightrope balancing act of making magic.  You will never hear me critique (on any public platform) the people responsible for the creative opportunities I enjoy each day. Without the trust of my writers, directors, producers & fellow actors, it would be impossible to live out my dreams. My job (& my only job) is to bring fearlessness, playfulness & passionate conviction to what has been created for me. My aim is to stretch myself (beyond the limits of where I think my boundaries may lye) each time I’m entrusted with material that allows those boundaries to be tested.

 

Every actor must believe they are the right person for their part or they will never achieve their potential, let alone surpass it. I was raised a gentleman & have two wonderful parents to thank for that, however, my polite personality (while rendering me easy to get along with on set) should have little bearing on my caliber of performance nor my castability as a professional.  I am leery of the pitfalls of social media & believe there are advantages to maintaining some mystery (even as a public figure) but I will always defend & protect what I hold dear (my job & my career) when they are publicly challenged, especially by those closest to me, whom I love & respect. Please know I bear no ill will. As a society, we are all still learning the full ramifications of living in an internet dominated culture. To all my many fans out there who offer encouragement & support, I hear you & am grateful for you. I’m having a blast… 🙂. Onward we go.”
