Don’t miss the Soapnet General Hospital mini-marathon honoring the demented relationship between Sonny and Dante on Father’s Day, June 20.
On Friday’s episode of GH, Michael was sentenced to five years hard time to everyone’s chagrin. This week, the frustration over what has happened will explode between Sonny and Carly and the two will fall into bed together. Don’t count on a reunion just yet, if ever. After Carly finally realizes that her own actions contributed to what happened to Michael, she asks Sonny to kindly back out of Morgan’s life. Sounds like another war is on the horizon!
GH’s Maurice Benard is an amazing actor, this is no secret. The fact that Sonny gets away with everything he does gives the character a bad rep. This week, Sonny’s daughter got beaten up badly and had to be hospitalized. When Kristina was questioned by Sonny and Lucky, she placed the blame on Ethan.
Sonny made a beeline for Ethan and put his pistol right up to his face, screaming that Ethan had beat up his little girl. I can’t lie, my heart literally swooned. Later, he went to Kristina and cried by his bedside as he remembered his own experience with domestic violence. Sonny’s tears became my tears and suddenly I was seeing him in a whole new light.
Kudos to Maurice Benard, Lexi Ainsworth, and Christian Alexander for making this storyline real without hitting to close to home.

My girl Chrissie recently pointed out that Drew Garrett (Michael, GH) makes some pretty scary faces in freeze frame. See for yourself!
