General Hospital Spoilers: The Start Of Sonny’s Downward Spiral

Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) has made his fair share of mistakes but he has always been a man of honor and lived up to his family man reputation. Even still, Sonny has good intentions in his heart, although he himself will question his character.

General Hospital spoilers reveal Sonny isn’t ready to show himself any mercy for hurting Carly (Laura Wright) the way he has. Many will argue that Sonny’s state of mind was obviously compromised while having amnesia. And as for Nina Reeves (Cynthia Watros), she took and advantage of Sonny’s fragile state as Mike in Nixon Falls.

General Hospital news and spoilers reveal Sonny, as well as his portrayer, Maurice, has a history with mental illness, including bipolar disorder. Maurice isn’t shy about displaying his real life challenges through General Hospital story lines revolving around Sonny.

Recent General Hospital spoilers and previews indicate that Sonny is going to be hard on himself, as yet another negative result stemming from Nina’s selfish decisions. Nina kept Sonny around as Mike long enough for them to fall in love, while keeping him from his wife and children, and now he lives with the guilt and unresolved feelings.

General Hospital previews and spoilers indicate Sonny will drink heavily in the initial stages after the fallout of his secret from Carly. In recent GH previews, Nina is always popping up around Sonny, making herself easily accessible to a vulnerable man. She still is in love with him despite the fact that he has a family whom he loves dearly. She is taking this small grain of hope that Sonny will forever keep a big piece of Mike’s heart within him. Nina always is lurking around every corner, getting in his head, hoping Carly becomes a memory.

General Hospital rumors suggest that Nina’s reign of (un)intentional yet extremely selfish decisions will continue to blow lives apart, including Sonny’s.

Will Nina be able to live with herself of Sonny is driven into a mental breakdown over their affair?
