ABC ‘General Hospital’ Spoilers: Dev-ception!
ABC ‘General Hospital’ (GH) spoilers finds that, as we all know, Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Bernard) has been lining the pockets of a certain Gladys Corbin (Bonnie Burroughs) to pretend that she is the Grandmother of Dev Cerci (Ashton Arbab) a homeless boy that he met in Turkey that helped him rescue his own son, Dante Falconeri (Dominic Zamprogna) and who traveled all the way from Turkey by himself in order to track down Sonny because surprise surprise, if he stayed in Turkey he would be killed. Okay, we get it, homeless teen with tragic backstory tries to make good by being mobster’s apprentice because he knows no other life but a life of crime. But you know, there’s been some gaps in Dev’s story, yes we thought he was homeless but slowly the facade has begun to crack.
ABC ‘General Hospital’ Spoilers: A reason behind Dev’s Pokerface
For instance, on New Year’s Eve he and Dante Falconeri (Eden McCoy) celebrated New Years’ together in a very turkish fashion, which proves that he had some semblance of a home life before. He even mentioned his parents buying him funny red underwear on New Year’s which is apparently a Turkish tradition. But when pressed about whether or not he missed his family, Dev was oddly quiet and clammed up. For a 16 year old he has quite the poker face, wouldn’t you say?
ABC ‘General Hospital’ Spoilers: What about Gladys?
Another strange little piece in the puzzle is that apparently Gladys has a son that died. It was alluded to that it was drugs that took him, but Gladys still leaves voice messages on his phone. Now, from a grieving standpoint I can certainly see how this would help a grieving Mom, especially if the loss had been fresh, but I think Gladys said that the loss happened around 2 years ago. That being said, you don’t ever truly get over the loss of one of your children.
ABC ‘General Hospital’ Spoilers: Will the real Gladys please stand up?
But what if Glady’s son isn’t dead, and what if Sonny is lining her pockets for something that may actually be fact? See what I’m driving at here? We don’t know if Gladys has any connections to the crime world and Mike Corbin (Max Gail) is in the throes of Alzheimer’s right now and couldn’t tell Sonny whether or not he was aligning himself wrongly when he employed Gladys, so there’s that. Also… is Gladys even Mike’s cousin? Or was that just an identity she assumed? Mike could have given Sonny contact details that could have been slightly out of date. The real Gladys could be pushing up daisies and whoever answered the phone at her house could just be sitting back and collecting the checks, pretending to be Gladys Corbin. (Hey, stranger things have happened.)
ABC ‘General Hospital’ Spoilers: Could Dev be the reason for the turf war?
What if Gladys’s son is actually Dev’s father and that Father is Sonny’s new enemy? The one that’s shooting up random people and trying to take over the Port Charles turf. It could definitely stand to reason and it may be why they got violent. Maybe Gladys has spread some lies on these voicemails that Dev is being held against his will or that Sonny isn’t treating him well or something. Or maybe it’s connected to the whole Dante thing. However, I think this may be drama that Dev has unintentionally brought down on Sonny’s head.
ABC ‘General Hospital’ Spoilers: Is Dev completely innocent?
But was it truly unintentional? If we buy Dev’s cover story that he’s 16 years old and was a homeless runaway from Turkey who had done nothing but fend for himself on the streets all of his life (which I’m starting to doubt) then yes, it was unintentional. But Dev is also a 16 year old boy and 16 year olds are notorious for rebelling. What if he decided in his infinite 16 year old wisdom to pull the ultimate rebellion and rebel against his own Dad by finding his way to the US and joining a completely different crime syndicate. Hey, it could happen! And just say the person playing Gladys Corbin is actually Dev’s real Grandma (which Dev may or may not know, he may not have ever met her) and maybe he doesn’t realize that his real, crimeboss Daddy is really mad at him for leaving and that he’s looking for him and has now found him and wants him back!
ABC ‘General Hospital’ Spoilers: Could it all be an act of teenage rebellion?
Keeping all this in mind Dev probably did not know that his alleged crimeboss Daddy would go to such bloody lengths to get him back. If this truly is an act of teenage rebellion then it could have been brought on by the fact that he thought his Dad didn’t care enough about him to track him down and he would just go wherever the wind blew him and possibly never hear from Crimeboss Daddy ever again until he was much older and a prominent made man in the Corinthos Crime Family. That’s one theory, the other is that his story was half true and that he was the illegitimate son of a crime boss and his Mother died making him an orphan – or perhaps maybe she fled his Father when he was really young prompting his tales if the red underwear and ever since she died he has been on his own. These theories are pure speculation, for the real story we’ll just have to stay tuned!!
