So was Michael Corinthos (played by Chad Duell) raped in prison on General Hospital? Presumably, evil inmate Carter (Joshua Wingate), has been beating him up and sexually abusing him. TV Guide Magazine tried to get some new info from GH head writer, Bob Guza, since no one at the network, GH, or connected with the show, is actually saying that Michael was raped, which is now amounting to viewers making up their own minds up about Michael’s prison life. So what do you think? To help you along, here are a few key excerpts with Guza!
Guza on the veil of secrecy of if Michael was raped: “I have never confirmed that he was and I’m not about to. Our focus right now is on the horrific experience of an 18- or 19-year-old who is thrown into a terrible situation like this. I just didn’t want to make the story more specific at this point. However, that’s not to say that I won’t be getting very specific in three or four or five months down the line. This situation is going to rear its ugly head in a big way and Michael is going to have to deal with it. This is a story that needs to be parceled out.”
Guza on how long Michael will really stay in the slammer and what could be the fallout: “We will get him out of there in a very interesting way and relatively quickly. And then this thing [that happened to him] will fester and much, much more will be revealed.”
