General Hospital News And Spoilers: Colpo di Fulmine; The Story Behind The Sicilian Thunderbolt

Love in the afternoon is a common phrase when referring to the stories which come from daytime soap operas and their notorious reputation for love and romance.

General Hospital news and spoilers reveal GH’s current storyline surrounding Leo Quartermaine (Easton Rocket) and his desire to make Dante and Sam fall deeper in love stems from a Sicilian superstition.

What is the Sicilian Thunderbolt?

The Sicilian Thunderbolt is a way to describe it when love hits like lightning, or, thunderbolt, when one comes face to face with the person of their destiny.

When a man becomes spellbound by the woman he loves, the feeling hits them both with an intensity neither can ignore. Colpo di Fulmine means, “love at first sight,” whole directly translating to “lightning strike.”

The Sicilian Thunderbolt concoction is a drink used to make two people see they’re destined to be together. As Olivia describes, when two people want to know if they’re meant to be together, they’ll drink the Sicilian Thunderbolt and suddenly everything becomes clear. The clouded outlook is lifted and they will have an awakening, making them certain it’s true love.

General Hospital spoilers reveal, due to Olivia Falconeri Quartermaine’s (Lisa LoCicero) Sicilian heritage, her son Leo is well versed in this legend of love, taking it upon himself to use on Sam McCall (Kelly Monaco) and Dante Falconeri (Dominic Zamprogna). Things go a little haywire and Brook Lynn Quartermaine (Amanda Setton) and Chase (Josh Swickard) drink the potion and share a kiss.

It’s very real. It happened to me nearly two years ago (with an Italian-American woman no less). You will never be the same. The most amazing moment in my life, without a doubt.

Hello Jared, Thank you so much for answering my request to share a “colpo di fulmine” love story. I wasn’t sure if I should leave a reply here to you, as this is a love letter to Rachel. But my mom said I must write you back, that this is my blog and I should write a quick note to acknowledge it (I have to listen to mom!). Your story is a very special story and is quite beautiful. It made my heart smile and put a tear on my face to read such honest words. It was refreshing to read something so lovely when there is so much hurt happening now in the world. It is a true love story that continues on and and I wish for you and Rachel to be reunited very soon in the UK. Stay safe and wishing you and Rachel all the best! Lora
