Paul Hornsby (Richard Burgi) is certainly establishing himself quickly as the man to fear in Port Charles!
After being responsible for the shooting of Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard), secretly attempting to take over the territory by blackmailing Ava (Maura West) to do his dirty work, and hoping everyone believes the deceased Carlos Rivera (Jeffrey Vincent Parise) is behind the shooting, it seems his plan is running smoothly.
However, there was a major roadblock on Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital. A tipsy Sloane (Robb Derringer), who is hell-bent on making Anna Devane (Finola Hughes) pay for her crime for shooting Rivera as retribution for the murder of her beloved Duke (Ian Buchanan), decides to call the new DA Hornsby and turn in evidence against the woman who dumped in!
Sloane meets Paul on the docks and hands him a key to a safety deposit box, which has Anna’s gun with her fingerprints all over it, as well as Carlos’ wallet and ID. What does Sloane want out of helping out the DA? He wants immunity in exchange for his testimony.
But little does Sloane know who he is talking to … or handing evidence to! In a shocking moment for Sloane, Paul reveals that Sloane must die in order to keep his plan in motion that Carlos is behind the hit on Sonny. Next, Paul plugs Sloane with two bullets. From the looks of it, it’s bye, bye, Sloane!
And as previously reported, after GH brought back actor Robb Derringer to play Sloane (after a short recast stint by Grayson McCouch) it looks like the character is the next casualty of story. This way, Paul’s crimes remain covered-up as he continues to terrorize the town.
What did you think of Paul shooting Sloane? Now that Sonny has a brain clot on the brain and needs immediate surgery, will Paul with an assist from Ava finally take the territory? Share your thoughts below!
