Our Favorite Mobster, Sonny Corinthos; Maurice Benard Sticking Around General Hospital

On September 23, General Hospital Blog reported that actor Maurice Benard who has played Port Charles top dog when it comes to the mob- and women, Sonny Corinthos, since 1993, may be leaving General Hospital to pursue other opportunities. According to Soaps in Depth magazine, it was noted that Benard had not yet signed a contract with ABC’s General Hospital to renew his current status with the show.

However, in a brief conversation with fans, Maurice had a different tune in regard to his plans for his future at General Hospital.

Sonny Corinthos fans can sleep easier tonight, knowing that the talented actor will be staying at General Hospital, a place that he calls, “home.” Benard will manage to stay at GH while expanding his horizons and working on other projects. His most recent project, The Ghost and the Whale, will be available for pre-order very soon.

The PCPD Has the Wrong Man… Free Carlos!

As usual, the cops and detectives over at the PCPD have arrested and jailed the wrong man. Carlos is strongly connected to the Jerome crime family members Ava and Julian. He took orders from Julian and his job was to act out on those orders. Somewhere along the way Ava got her grips on Carlos and he and Ava went behind Julian’s back. Ava had convinced Carlos to try and take care of AJ Quartermaine. Once night at the Quartermaine mansion, Carlos arrived in a mask and attempted to take AJ out. The attempt failed when Luke and Tracy walked in and interrupted the operation and put some attack moves on the intruder. Carlos fled the scene and AJ was left alive.

AJ was now still alive and Ava was very angry. AJ was about to tell Sonny that Ava killed Connie so she needed him dead. You now what they say, if you want something done right you better do it yourself! And that’s exactly what Ava was about to do. In a plot to end AJ, AJ and Ava were together at Julian’s apartment. Sonny strolled in and saw the two and immediately thought Ava was the damsel in distress. He got so angry with AJ about Connie, just as AJ was about to tell him Ava was the one who killed her, Sonny shot him!

To hide her involvement in AJ’s (and Connie’s) murder, Ava blackmailed Carlos into taking the wrap. Ava threatened Sabrina and her baby’s life if Carlos didn’t tell Anna that he was the one who killed AJ.

Now that it is know by a few Port Charles residents that Sonny is the actual killer, when will Carlos go free? Carly, Franco, and Sonny have all heard the recording on AJ’s phone of Sonny shooting AJ Ava’s involvement in it all. Once that recording gets out (and we know it will), will it be all over for Sonny? Can what happen to Carlos be rectified?

Jeffrey Vincent Parise (Carlos Rivera) is due to start filing episodes of GH late this Summer. Carlos is expected to arrive on screen in PC early September.
