ABC ‘General Hospital’ (GH) spoilers reveal we’re still seeing a focus on Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) and his kids. Today’s episode, from April 4, 2008, was a gripping view. However, it had a tragic end and we will definitely be looking for the second part of this one. Let’s take a look at some highlights and why Sonny just can’t get it right.
ABC ‘General Hospital’ Spoilers: Meeting Johnny
We’ve seen this character a couple of times now, but we believe this was the best chance yet to get a feel for him. Johnny Zacchara (Brandon Barash) was a mob type who was at odds with Sonny. This episode finds them supposedly at peace. However, his sister/mother, Claudia Zacchara (Sarah Brown), is arranging a hit that she keeps him out of as much as possible.
ABC ‘General Hospital’ Spoilers: Sonny’s good intent leads to tragedy
We loved getting a chance to see these new characters is action. Claudia, in particular was someone we want to see more of. Watching her cause a fuss at Carly Corinthos’ (Laura Wright) place just to have an alibi was a bold move and Carly played right into her hands. We also loved how she used her one-night stand with Sonny as a way to push Carly’s buttons and make it seem like she was still interested. Well played.
As for Johnny, we loved watching him with Lulu Spencer (Julie Marie Berman). They had an interesting chemistry, and we can just imagine the drama and conflict that might have followed that kiss. He’s secretly backing out of a truce with a guy who is one of her mom’s friends. The possibilities are endless. As for the character himself, we’re getting Jake Lambert (Barash) from Days of Our Lives vibes. Except Jake actually tried to get away from a mob.
ABC ‘General Hospital’ Spoilers: Advice
Also in this episode, General Hospital spoilers reveal we got to see a bit more of Robin Scorpio (Kimberly McCullough). At this time, she was apparently pregnant and Patrick Drake (Jason Thompson) was a bit of a question mark. Her scenes reinforced the theme that seems to be going on in these flashbacks—the long-standing love and friendship between her and Jason Morgan (Steve Burton).
Back in 2008, Elizabeth Webber (Rebecca Herbst) was struggling over Jason’s chosen profession. She still cared about him and wanted to have him around as much as possible, but the danger made her hesitate. Robin drew on her own childhood to give Elizabeth some advice that ultimately made her approach Jason. We’re still not sure about the Elizabeth/Jason pairing, or Robin’s perspective here, but it was still a nice scene.
ABC ‘General Hospital’ Spoilers: Can’t win
Finally, we have Sonny. He just can’t seem to get it right. During this time, Carly had apparently had enough, angry about Michael Corinthos (Dylan Cash) recently getting a gun. Michael’s actions made Sonny think a bit. He had a great scene with Alexis Davis (Nancy Lee Grahn) where he admitted that while he does had some shady business, he also has a lot of legit business. And he was doing that specifically to give his children something clean they can be proud of. An inheritance that will one day come, minus the life-or-death drama of his other holdings. We loved this glimpse into another side of the character, as well as how desperately he wanted Michael to see one of legit businesses in action. Sadly, Michael seemed more interested in the darker side at first. Then, the kid got caught in an attack meant for Sonny. By our count, that’s at least three kids that have been injured by Sonny’s other life, to an extent. The moment where someone at the warehouse pointed out Michael was shot was chilling, because you could see the horror on Sonny’s face as his attempt to steer Michael right led to danger.
