On Thursday’s episode of General Hospital, the ABC soap opera welcomed back Lexi Ainsworth in the role of Kristina Davis, the daughter of Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard). Lexi played the role previously, between 2009-2011.
Ainsworth first appeared in scenes reuniting her with her on-screen mom and sisters: Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis), Haley Pullos (Molly) and Kelly Monaco (Sam). After a brief moment where all the Davis girls were back together again, conflict soon began between them since Molly believes Sam’s dad, Julian (William deVry) shot Sonny.
Later, Kristina goes to General Hospital to see her ailing father who is recovering from life-saving surgery. First, Kristina meets up with her brothers: Morgan (Bryan Craig) and Michael (Chad Duell) who are outside of Sonny’s hospital room relieved that their dad pulled through. However, the real emotional punch came when Kristina was able to sit by her father’s hospital bedside one-on-one. Kristina related to Sonny that she should have told him she loved him more.
With tears in her eyes, and tears streaming down Sonny’s face, Kristina tells her dad: “You’re a part of me. And you are the strongest, smartest, most powerful person I know. And I don’t know if if I have ever told you this, but I am proud to be your daughter.” Kristina goes on to say to her father, “Please, please be careful, because I can’t imagine losing you.” It was touching scene between Lexi and Maurice Benard, to say the least.
