If you caught Monday’s episode of General Hospital, you witnessed yet another gut-wrenching scene featuring grieving mother, Carly Corinthos as played by Daytime Emmy winner, Laura Wright.
Reeling from the death of her son Morgan (Bryan Craig), and with Sonny (Maurice Benard) coming by to plead with Carly that the two of them mourn the loss of their son together, not seperately, Carly was emotionally raw. However to make matters worse, when Kiki (Hayley Erin) came by to tell Carly and Sonny how sorry she was for Morgan’s death, and how she truly did love him, and that she felt guilt-ridden for her part of Morgan’s last disatrous night on earth, Carly wants to know all the details!
This is where Carly learns that Kiki had made the decision to dump Morgan for Dillon (Robert Palmer Watkins), and was attempting to tell him in person when things went awry. Carly is livid, because she had previously begged Kiki not to lead Morgan on if she had feelings for Dillon. The scene and the fallout featured great performances by Wright, Erin, and Benard.
Laura Wright told On-Air On-Soaps about the taping of that key scene with Hayley Erin: “Kiki comes over to say how sorry she is, and it doesn’t go so well for her. Carly lays into her, ‘Why was he (Morgan) so upset with you? I would like to know!’ Carly wants to know her son’s final moments. She wants to know what’s in his heart, and what was in his head. Kiki says very slowly she was going to break up with Morgan, and Carly says, ‘Why don’t you say that a little louder?’ That was not scripted. I had to go over when we were done with the scene and hug Hayley, because Carly was merciless on Kiki, and Hayley and I are tight in real life.”
