On Tuesday’s episode of ABC’s General Hospital, it was time the handcuffs came out for mobster Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard).
In a showdown between all the Corinthos men, Sonny has no choice but to surrender to his son the cop, Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) who arrests his father for the murder of AJ Quartermaine! For many in the viewing audience it was a long time coming for Sonny! After intense scenes between Michael (Chad Duell), where Sonny was staring down the barrel of a gun with a bullet with his name on it, Michael finally puts down the weapon after his brothers, Dante and Morgan (Bryan Craig) arrive on the scene at the brownstone.
Michael is so filled with grief, betrayal, and hatred over learning that it was Sonny who killed his biological father and had lied about for months. Kudos go to Chad Duell for showing the devastating pain and conflict that Michael was going through as he was about to shoot the man who for years he called his “dad”! As for Maurice Benard, he delivered another intense performance, mostly with his eyes and little dialog, as Sonny is caught with nowhere to run. Dominic Zamprogna also had some terrific conflicted moments to play and he delivered, where Dante had to talk down Michael and then deal with Sonny, all the while trying to hold it together in the most horrific of family circumstances.
Later, after Sonny was taken down to the police station and booked for his crime, while D.A. Baldwin (Kin Shriner)smirked through the glass that Corinthos is finally going behind bars, Michael learns of more betrayal from Morgan and Kiki (Kristen Alderson)! Yup! They knew that Sonny killed AJ … and even more! Leaving Michael to head to the bar and who should be there? Rosalie! (Linda Elena Tovar)
