This week on ABC’s General Hospital, viewers were introduced to two new younger set characters.
The first was nurse Amy Driscoll played by Risa Dorken, and the second was Aaron played by John DeLuca, who comes on to the scene as a date for Kristina, but who seems to have some fascination with Sonny Corinthos and his “coffee’!
On Wednesday’s episode, Maxie (Kirsten Storms) comes upon new nurse Amy Driscoll at GH, and asks her if she knows where Nathan (Ryan Paevey) is as she has a clean shirt for him. Amy tells her he is in the locker-room, but with a bit of sting to her comments. Later, when Griffin (Matt Cohen) appears the nurses station, Amy seems quite smitten with him and informs him of the patient that OD’d and then rambles on about Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) and Julian (William deVry) being taken to the PCPD because of it, which Sam (Kelly Monaco) overhears! Sam next takes it upon herself to stop the nurse Amy from gossisping (signaling the throwback to nurse Amy Vining played for years by the late Shell Kepler), and Amy runs off! Still later, Franco (Roger Howarth) comes to GH and runs into Amy to go over his work schedule. She comments in a flirtatious way that Franco fills out his blue shirt very nicely. Amy drops a bomb on Franco, and reveals that Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) cancelled little Jake’s art therapy session with him, so there is a change to his schedule. Franco’s clearly rattled.
On Thursday’s episode, viewers got a major glimpse at Aaron, who is at the Corinthos Coffee house office with his date Kristina (Lexi Ainsworth). He looks around Sonny’s (Maurice Benard) office and seems very intrigued and impressed. After Kristina introduces Aaron to Sonny, the young man says he is culinary school and a total foodie, and he has been obsessed with Sonny’s coffee and restaurant.
Aaron asks to look around the place, and exits leaving Sonny and Kristina to talk abuot him where Sonny says he approves of the guy. But is this Aaron even on the up and up? Is he a son of a mobster in his own right? What is the deal?
