Sonny takes over General Hospital’s Christmas Story Tradition

I don’t know about you but I think that the perfect way for Sonny to contribute to General Hospital isn’t of monetary value. This contribution is something money can’t, or shouldn’t buy, especially this time of year.

Sonny’s conversation with Stella (Vernee Watson) lit the path for an upcoming storyline. Currently, Port Charles is in the thick of its holiday season. The infamous Quartermaine Thanksgiving has passed and everyone is moving toward Christmas and New Years. General Hospital Christmas episodes are iconic. From miracles to tragedies, GH Christmases are unforgettable. Historically, the one thing we could count on was Steve Hardy and the Christmas story.

Sonny Takes Over General Hospital’s Christmas Story

After many years and Hardy’s passing, Alan Quartermaine (Stuart Damon) took over. Those years were just as magical. Then, after his death, consistency went out the window. However, there still have been many memorable Christmases in Port Charles. One year, Monica Quartermaine (Leslie Charleson) read the story!

General Hospital spoilers and rumors hint that there may be a new tradition in town. Sonny’s conversation with Stella started a buzz around social media. Many feel that Sonny Corinthos should take over, and not just this once. Do you think that Sonny should carry on Steve and Alan’s tradition?

General Hospital Spoilers: Scotty Delivers Shocking News To Monica And The Rest Of The Quartermaine Family

Scotty Baldwin (Kin Shriner) loves to stir the pot wherever he goes. Strangers, friends, and even family aren’t exempt from Scotty’s ability to make people uncomfortable or get them all up in arms the at least.

General Hospital spoilers reveal Scotty is about to do what he loves best- and throw a wrench into a few someone’s day.

In recent General Hospital previews for the week of July 12th- July 16th, Scotty is shown barging into the Quartermaine mansion just as an ELQ meeting is about to begin.

General Hospital rumors suggest Scotty’s announcement could have to do with the new guy in town, Austin (Roger Howarth). GH fans believe that Austin is the son of Edward Quartermaine’s son, Jimmy Lee Holt, making Austin a Quartermaine, and throwing a wrench into whatever plans Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart), Monica Quartermaine (Leslie Charleson), and the Q’s have for ELQ.

If Austin is a Quartermaine, this changes the game for everyone involved, including Valentin and Brook Lynn’s (Amanda Setton) scheme to take Valentin’s shares by passing off Maxie’s (Kirsten Storms) baby as hers and Valentin’s.

The two girls recently discussed coming clean and letting Maxie have baby Louise, and now it looks like there may not be a choice.

Will Austin be the reason Maxie and Brook Lynn’s plan unravels?

General Hospital news reports reveal a very telling statement by on-screen wife, Leslie Charleson, who played beside Damn for decades as Monica Quartermaine. At the time of learning of her co-star’s passing, Charles stated, “This is the 30th anniversary for the two of us, in August. The timing leaves me very discouraged about the way soaps are going, the total disregard for history and the blatant disregard for the veterans.” When Damon was fired in 2007 by Jill Farren Phelps, at the order of Brian Frons and Anne Sweeney, Charleson, among many other leading co-stars, spoke out against the decision to just throw away a veteran character.

Although killed off the show in 2007, Damon made appearances heee and there as a ghost and hallucinations, and his last appearance was during GH’s 50th anniversary in 2013.
