Could it be that Morgan Corinthos (Bryan Craig), the son of Carly (Laura Wright) and Sonny (Maurice Benard) is actually suffering from Bipolar disorder just like his father? That was the twist brought up on Wednesday’s episode of ABC’s General Hospital!
As Morgan is at the courthouse with his girlfriend Kiki (Hayley Erin), since she is set to take the stand as a witness in the murder trial of her father, Dr. Silas Clay (Michael Easton), Sonny and Carly are worrying about the young man, whose actions over the last many months are leading Carly to the conclusion that Morgan may suffer from the same mental illness as her husband-to-be!
Carly says to Sonny, in bringing up the sensitive subject of bipolar disorder to the mob boss: “There is a genetic component and that means it can be inherited.” She goes on to list the events that have transpired since Morgan has hit young adulthood: “Morgan was a sweet, calm little boy, and when he hit his twenties he has completely changed. If Morgan is bipolar, he is at the age where we would begin to see the signs. Let’s just think about the things he has done: He had a gambling problem, he tricked Kiki into marrying him, he slept with Ava (Maura West), he joined Julian’s (William deVry) organization, and what about that night at the pier with Michael (Chad Duell) when they got into a fight? Michael hits his head and fall’s into the water and Morgan takes off. He was going to leave him and let him drown! He loses control when he is angry. Let’s just look at him right now then … acting out sexually is a symptom. He got back together with Kiki and right away he sleeps with her aunt.”
Things really hit home for Sonny though when Carly goes on to say “Morgan was really depressed when he found out that you were Avery’s father, and not him. Sonny, God knows what else he’s done.” A shell-shocked Sonny then utters: “If I passed this on to my son and he killed somebody. It’s on me.”
So, do you think Morgan is suffering from Bipolar disorder? Does it help make sense of all the characters past and present behavior and his sleeping with Denice AKA Ava while he is in a relationship with Kiki? Would you like to see how Morgan suffering from this mental illness would play out within the Corinthos clan? Do you think Morgan killed Silas then? Share your thoughts below!
