On Monday’s episode of ABC’s General Hospital, one character went from a “questionable” good guy to big time heel!
That character was revealed to be none other than Paul Horsnby (Richard Burgi)!
While playing on the character’s past as part of the notorious Cartel, in which he was forced into, it would seem that Hornsby would not have become a power-hungry full-throttle mobster! But surprise! In a twist, it is Paul who shot Sonny (Maurice Benard), and has major plans to bring down the mob kingpin, and take over the territory with a little assist from Ava Jerome (Maura West)!
On yesterday’s broadcast, viewers learned that Paul had the missing flash drive incriminating Ava in the murder of Connie Falconeri! A murder rap she has to continue to beat, or be locked up in prison for the rest of her life. Paul shows up at Ava’s blackmailing her with the flash drive in order to have her help him take over Port Charles and bring down Sonny. So far, Paul gloats he has immobilized Mr. Corinthos since his shooting.
Paul admits that he has even been framing Ava’s brother, Julian (William deVry) for the crime, and that he has been targeting Sonny and the PC territory for months. Paul admits he wants power! He also reveals to Ava that he wants to remain in the background while she will be the face of the Jerome organization. Of course, he adds, that he doesn’t want his loved ones to have a clue!
That is pretty distasteful given the fact that in juxtaposing scenes with Maxie (Kirsten Storms), Paul’s son, Dylan (Robert Palmer Watkins) and his ex Tracy (Jane Elliot), the trio were extolling that the guy is pretty darn upstanding!
So, what did you think of the plot twist? Did you know from the start Paul would be bad? Did you think he was behind Sonny’s shooting? Do you like how GH has linked Paul up with Ava? Do you think a romance will ensue? Comment below!
